A transmission can be adjusted pretty simply.

 

You won't be drafting much, so all you need to do is go for top speed. On the Nurburgring, you get that in two places, the fastest of which is the long straight near the finish. Get the best entry speed onto the straight that you can and look for your top speed at the far end. Adjust your final gear or 5/6th gear for the closest that you can get to it without hitting the rev limiter. You're done.

 

You can get fancier with the transmission later, such as by adjusting for using torque instead of power, but the above method works as a starting point for learning how to deal with any car.

As MGT stated on the previous page, a lot of these one-lap battles is finding the (or your) breaking points (not braking Smiley Tongue ). Knowing which car you need to be infront of by which corner is important. For one, it saves you from finishing a whole lap and not coming close. Though I've not had a look at this particular event yet, I will do much the same. If I know I'm not at this point by this time, then I'll just quit out and start again. This'll save you a lot of time Smiley Wink

if you're in need of credits, I suggest finishing the events even if you finish 2nd or worse.  later on you may feel like you don't need the cash so resetting a bunch of times won't really hurt you. 

 

but consider that if you are spending the time to do the challenge and reset it, it only takes a little more time to finish and then get paid while you're doing it.  makes sense.

I always finish a race because I always have to learn and need cash.

Hey, welcome back, Migagee!

 

Migagee is an Australian that travels a lot now and who is just getting back to GT.

We used to be neck and neck during time trial contests (well I like to think so Smiley Very Happy ).

 

I hope he can join in on some of our forum events, but he is in a different time zone.

Whether you finish what you start or not can be a compromise.

 

On the Ring, that first mile can be a make-or-break deal. If you get it wrong, there is no point wasting over six more minutes of precious time, if you have lots of credits and know the car and track well.

 

If you still need to learn a course, then, sure, finish the lap; but if you are going for that crucial .729 of a second, your time may be better spent by doing things cleaner at the start.
