This is a new post that had a discussion that started in the post about people migrating to Steam and losing the one-year subscription they paid for when they originally bought the game. This discussion was way off-topic so I decided to start a new one. The off-track discussion revolved around Longford (Eve and Spark F3) and my consistently poor performance there. I'm running the AI at 73 percent and they are still faster than me and my best lap has been in the mid 2:50s. DurgeDriven replied "I raced 115% ai there the other night online had no trouble 2:36." So let's pick up from there. I can't see a 2:36. That's 20 seconds faster per lap. I see the AI posting those kinds of times, and I just can't see where I could make up 20 seconds per lap, so let's talk. Because I want to get better. The differential bothers me because Longford is mostly a flat-out, foot to the firewall kind of track. I'm sometimes able to overtake in the long straights, but mostly I keep with the flow. I have two "bad" areas. The first is at the end of the homestretch. There's a weak right, followed by another weak right and then the sharp left under the viaduct. I'm coming to the second right in fifth, but unless I downshift into 4th, I can't hold the car straight into the viaduct left. Too high a speed and the car will snap left before I start to brake or downshift. The AI fly by me here (or slam into my rear, sending me spinning into the weeds). The second "bad" spot is the slow left over the long bridge before Lowry Corner. Again, if I come off the bridge too fast, I get an immediate jerk to the left, so I downshift into second in the straight area before the end of the bridge. If I don't I can't keep it under control. My best place to overtake is in the Longford Corner where I can latebrake and catch a couple of cars accelerating out of that corner. I've used the rubber on the road to determine if I'm really braking too early, for example, and losing a lot of speed in the corners, but I find my "marks" are where the rubber tends to start, so that tells me I'm not that far off. But with them at 73%, I just shouldn't be in last place consistently. So would someone please share their wisdom?
