Tips:
- costing in this car is very important, just throw it in and have confidence
- don't down shift to aggressively, especially into 2nd gear
- if you exceed tire grip limit when coasting rear will step out slightly, just touch a bit the gas and all will be fine
- always brake in a straight line, no trail braking especially in CorckScrew or last turn

Formula RaceRoom Junior - Brands Hatch - 48.754
 



Tips:
- tricky little car on a tricky little circuit, bumps don't help either so try to take wide lines, never tight;
- make sure you have your brake balance right, according to your driving style, very important on this track;
-yes, lowest gear is the fastest even do you hit limiter all most on front straight, higher gear ratio and this pony motor is slower.

NSU TTs Cup - Brands Hatch - 57.706
 



Tips:
- there are two settings for brake bias, either what i have in the setup 60/40 or if you like 50/50 is really good also, with the later you can brake a tad later but you will have some understeer, maybe good for passing;
-YES, turn 1 is coasting all the way, you have to nail it perfectly, don't acc to soon;
-for T1 foot completely off the acc. pedal, no 5% rule here.

DTM92 - Mercedes 190E EVO II - Norisring - 53.067
 



Tips :
- very stable under the brakes, use them wisely as this car seriously lacks in power;
- liftoff to tuck into the inside of the corner then blast off;
- it's quite stable but to much angle on the steering wheel and full acc. might upset her a bit.

Touring Classics Nissan Skyline GTR R32 - Norisring - 52.386
 



Tips:
- this is a beast, no way it should be in the same class as those punny BMW, Volvo and such...
- surprisingly good handling was expecting understeer galore but not so, corner entry is fine just be careful on mid-corner speed, allot slower than above mentioned cars;
- also wooden brakes, you have to break early!
- don't turn when you are very high RPM , the back will kick out.

Touring Classics - Volvo 240Turbo - Norisring - 53.189
 



Tips:
- the fridge in all it's glory, quite fast also.There is a mid 52 in there somewhere;
- good top speed, good on the brakes but not so good around fast corners so mid track section you are going to struggle a bit;
- it's a bit tail happy, be gentle;
- in a dog fight just put this box on the inside it won't budge.

BMW M1 Procar - Norisring - 52.189
 



Tips:
- big power no brakes, really no brakes! brake WAY early!!!
- corner entry understeer if you enter to fast, be slow;
- this car is all about corner exit and raw acc., no mid corner speed, no late braking;
- you have to tame this car, it's a bit wild at the exit of the corners if it's too wild use 2nd instead of 1st.

DTM15 - Audi RS5 - Norisring - 48.402
 



Tips:
- usually I like the Audi more than Merc/BMW but on this track it just doesn't feel right in any way, mid-corner understeer, not very stable on the brakes and I tried all i know(little as I know) but still nothing, maybe I was overdriving the car, but LB don't lie;
- while unstable on the brakes you can actually brake quite late;
- the wing is 5(minimum) you can increase that to 8 and you will not lose any noticeable top speed, increasing the wing will add more understeer;
- be aggressive on downshift;

Audi TT Cup - Monza Junior - 51.069
 



Tips:
- use the boost at the exit of Parabolica corner(last corner) when you hit 5th gear 2 times/lap.Don't use it on the back straight on Leaderboard racing, on online racing use to defend on back straight;
- take an early apex at T1, be it in 3ed gear or 2nd;
- if you don't like the brake bias change it to 62/48.

Formula Raceroom Junior - Paul Richard solution 2A Short - 1.22.230 on LD
 



1.22.230 on LeaderBoard 
- definitely a legal 1.21 mid is possible.If we go by RR cut rules probably a low 20 or even a 19.
- for me this car acts like it has a low/mid range turbo, you trow it into the corner and at first full stab of the acc. it bites but if you gently push the acc. it's to slow. So i smash the acc. pedal and then prepare to catch any slides and go from 100% to 50-60% and then full again.
- be careful with the brakes, they lock up quite easly

DTM13 Audi - Moscow Raceway full - 1.32.895 on LD
 



1.32.895 on LeaderBoard
- in several laps i was up 0.260 in S1 so a mid 32 for sure, proper aliens will surely dip into 31's
- for me coasting was the fastest way, brake a bit early than normal and coast at speed more, let the aerodynamics do their thing , you can see that in S2 specially.
- confidence in the car is also key.
