    Here's my best attempt at driving the paved long hill-climb course
    10:32.128 - Hirochi Sunburst Track - stock tuning, but equipped with ESC

    I did a lap on the the gravel short course too.
    3:34.923 - Covet rally, all stock

    I'm using a DFGT wheel, set to 320* for both laps. I'm trying a tighter wheel setup as it seems to make for better recoveries while flicking the rear end around.

    Ran into a problem with my replay files. it seems that any recordings of time trails wont load. I would have to record everything over just as videos. I wont be ding any more of this until I get to the bottom of the replay bug.

    I did try with an electric car, 12:48.737 as I was struggling a bit and certainly was not pushing as it was enough challenge even to finish with slow driving :D

    Took economical low power model as others were bit much for me to handle today.

    Must say that edge of pavement adds huge amount of realism, really good improvements on map!

    I think that I have 540 degrees or 720 degrees, not certain, with cheap Thrustmaster T150.

    My first successful climb with the SBR4 Hill Climb. Clearly not pushing it as I still have to learn the track, and also I'm limited because I use a XBOX One controller as I don't have a wheel.

    My best lap with various cars in Pikes Peak paved long:
    10:25:522 - Sunburst Hillclimb DCT
    10:45:214 - K-Series Trackday AT
    10:46:468 - SBR4 Hillclimb DCT
    10:57:691 - Pessima Hillclimb sequential
    11:00:046 - Sunburst Track DCT
    11:01.220 - Sunburst Electric xcRace
    My game controller is Frsky Taranis X9D Plus.

    SBR4 is more powerful but Sunburst has better handling

    Hirochi Sunburst Electric 3.61 - Trust me, It's not outdated.

    Driving Tip: Before corner threshold braking. Entering corner increase steering and reduce braking at the same time. At apex start accelerating. Exiting corner reduce steering and increase throttle at the same time.
    The g-Forces UI app is a handy tool. In a good cornering it should look like half a circle.

    I did an attempt as well, I've been wanting to put my personalized Pessima up to the test for a while now and I've really lacked a competitive environment, or to put it more simply, Pikes peak is a lot of fun, and a great challenge for both driver and car.
    Car Specs :
    Weights : 1431 kg
    Power : 615bhp~ (Lower boost than daily due to temperature problems on long runs)
    Torque : 720+nm
    Gearbox : Sequential 6 gears, 4wd LSD.
    Engine : 2.0L DOCH i4, Turbocharged and ALS. @ around 41.5psi/2.8Bar.
    Tyres : Clockwise 533 17x9 Front, Clockwise 533 17x12 rear. Race tyres.
    Suspension : Everything Sport
    Topspeed : 331 IAS/km/h

    So here goes:

    I couldn't stop driving again, but I wanted to do it with a rwd car, and less powerful, so that corner speeds were more important.
    It was a lot of fun, and I do firmly believe that some of the best stuff was in the final run I did here.

    Car specs:
    Weights : 1428 kg / 3149lbs
    Power : 243 bhp
    Torque : 320 nm
    Gearbox : Race 6-speed H-Shifter
    Engine : 3.0L I6 NA Stage 2 Performance Longblock with a sports intake
    Tyres : Dreid LM-X 17x10 Front Wheels, Dreid LM-X 17x12 Rear Wheels, Race Slicks.
    Suspension : Sports Suspension, Front Race sway bar.
    Top Speed : 240 IAS/km/h
