That is funny, too late for me though....I used Moss's strategy at the ship wreck Danger sign. Just let the car roll over the side at speed.

Finishing really early this week, my final time with Lancia Delta S4 1:53.280, puts me in number 2 spot @the moment.

Nice run!

Not sure if I'm going to get a chance to run this the way my week is going. Thankfully it's coming to an end, we'll see.


I think it is about setting yourself targets. I know I'm not that fast (or accurate), but when I start a new week, it goes something along the lines of Top 1%, Top 500, or Top 200 (depending on how many have run the circuit in Moss' choice of class) and then Top 100. If I'm lucky like the 1st couple of weeks, I got top 50 which totally surprised me. I'm now running around Top 300.

either theres a way to sneak a v8 on that delta or some fancy way of tuning those gears that gives the equivelent of what looks like 150hp+ over stock,i'm getting smoked by top 3 so bad after first turn you'd think i was in car 2 classes below lol.

I noticed your time and tried building one quickly, but i am rather quite a bit off track with my build/tuning or I just simply suck without realising myself. I was lacking cornering traction a lot ...
Also tried aTTaX Johnson's tune and don't think it's strong setup :(

I was too tired to build own tune so just used aTTaX Johnson's tune on my run :-)

I'm finally into the top 100 which I'm quite pleased with... currently 2:00.153 (#58) with Moss's Alfa. It's my driving letting me down now so probably won't progress anymore this week. Great driving all round though, especially those in the top 10 - hats off to you guys!

I checked it out, yet, had a hard time with the launch and accel at turns. Thus, I changed the gearing around and did a lot better for my taste. In addition, I swapped the race to rally compound & springs for some additional improvement in my several runs. As you mentioned, first half did pretty good, yet, did not have enough for 2nd section of track.

I have a similar build to that of aTTaX's build/tune, which on my runs I actually do better than aTTaX's, yet, for whatever reason when using aTTaX's against your ghost....you really take off on me even before the first turn. Can't figure that out!!

Alrite got 1:53.0 dirty with 2 wall touches using Johnson's tune. Brakes too strong than my typical S1 tarmac cars and I wasn't braking hard enough. Not gonna push it for now though I still believe it's underwhelming setup in comparison to Marple's. Will spend a good few whole days setting up my own S4 eventually when I have the mood.
Great run guys.

Managed 1.55.516 in Delta S4. Glad I read Suffer's comment re: the group B version, I was doing the same thing; thought I was in the twilight zone.

I have shared a tune for the S4. Its same build as Johnson but i could not get his to turn. I still am not a massive fan because i dont like the build but cant argue with the pace.

I jumped on the Delta bandwagon and put one at #8 with 1:55.182.
The car is a little too slidey for my liking and I hate having a stock transmission. But like SatNite just said, can't argue with the pace.

Edit : it's the street transmission, but I still can't adjust it. And I hate maxing out the top speed for half a straightaway.

Like it or not it's the ideal path and it's also the problem with majority of current S1 leaderboards. There're still quite some exceptions for few routes but the best cars are often the ones which has low-top-speed stock/street transmission for their stock 4WD drivetrains as the PI u saved up goes to accel/handling.

Would you mind sharing some details here? I'm definitely still missing out something I can't even replicate his parts so far ... :(
