Well I got myself a time now. But I didn’t get a screenshot of it. Ran twice with the Ford and twice with the Opel today best result with the Opel at 07:26.something, which beats the delta at least but I forgot to get a screenshot of it.
I liked the Ford’s heft, it felt more stable on the road but it also made it feel necessary to keep it stable as once it started skidding you had no control anymore. So it felt best for slow and precise cornering, which is fun to pull off but ruins everything when you don’t.
The Opel feels so much lighter and more familiar after the Renault, while I still don’t feel like I can throw it around and slide around corners it does feel like it breaks harder and I like the 3 little lights that tells you where your max power RPM space is.
At the very least the cars do not feel impossible to use anymore, so that’s progress!
I can’t decide if I really enjoy the track or hate it though. There’s so many tricky things that comes out of nowhere and will just ruin your run, but those are also fun to master. The first hairpin, no matter that it’s at the end of a long straight, just seems invisible. I have a really hard time finding the right breakpoints for it, but when I get it perfect it feels really good. Then there’s a simple right 5, that should be easy, but it’s downhill and right below a crest so I have to treat it like a 2 or I inevitably get thrown into the rocks outside it. Oh and navigator can go fuck himself with his “right 4 be brave” the hell do you mean?
It’s at the bottom of a valley turns into a climb that crests into another sharp turn with rocks ALL over both of them. Going through the first corner ‘bravely’ means killing yourself on the 2nd one. But I guess that’s bravery for you.
