Good lap Renegade! Must try again later but I can't see me beating that. Nearly a second faster than me and thats alot on such a short circuit.


I'm sure we both know some people from SFS Sunday's that would take another second off my time. Hopefully they haven't seen this thread :P

Would love to get involed.

 

Nay .....  should get involved.:smileywink:

 

I'll give it a crack when I next get a break from work.

 

BTW ... (Yeh, here come the excuses already), I'm assuming most pundits are using a wheel of some sort?

Is that a fair call?

Curious as to whether wheel vs. ds3 is recognised or not.

TBH kinda don't care, as all I have is the ds3, so I guess times are relative to that, but good luck to those that can handle a wheel, 'cause using that peripheral is a skill on its own.

Nope I'm on the DS3.

Have a wheel but really don't like the way the force feedback is implemented around the straight ahead position, you can end up fighting the thing just to stay in a straight line :smileysad:.

Plus you still can't alter the lock to lock settings :smileyfrustrated:.

True Story, see:

 

 

I could totally beat your new time but I can't be bothered now. :smileytongue:

 

Oh, another DS3 user here. I don't have a steering wheel.

Woohoo! It's 11pm. I won! Yay! :)

 

Now bring on the next track please. Although I won't be able to put much focus into it. As I will be playing F1 2011 alot more now that the new Formula 1 season startes this week :)

 

Oh, and I use a wheel. Which probably gives me an advantage. Although some people are pretty swift with a DS3 :)
