It's definitely not a glitch but a speedhack. He/she uses it multiple times in that lap.
Just report him/her for cheating.

LOL, there's some pretty bad ones for sure.


So true. Just looked at the rival LB and realised the glitch guy is the same name as the one I'd seen on COTA. Guess he's making a not-so-subtle habit of it.

If that is a hack, then how come someone that hacked before and is still hacking not banned? What is going on here?

This event is ridiculously tough for me. I cannot beat Mechberg cleanly without dirtying the lap. On clean laps he’s always a hair ahead of me and then pulls ahead on the turn after the straight. Having a hard time knowing what gear to be in for turn 1 (using 2nd) and the hard right sweeper after the long straight (usually 3rd and then upshifting into 4th). Also, it seems fastest to not shift into 6th on the long straight.

Edit: I passed Mechberg’s time and the next guy above. How are these guys getting decent times running full auto and all assists on? I’m running everything off except for having no clutch.

Down to a 1:10.201

Well, considering he was having trouble, that kinda explains it lol.

But I do use 5th.

If you get the first 3 turns right you need to use 5th on the straight otherwise you top out in 4th before you get to the next corner

Does your speed on 5th have time to get higher than the top of 4th? I found that the speed I lose by hitting the limiter is roughly the same that I lose when shifting up, and I'm still not really getting above 260km/h. So right now if I'm really careful with the throttle I can JUST keep it under the limiter for a couple seconds before the turn comes up. :)

My first turn still kinda sucks, but I think I'm getting the next couple curves down pretty good now.

What you mean "careful with the throttle"? Right after T1 it's full throttle until T5.

I mean when I get to max speed on 4th, I try to keep it right there at the edge of the limiter without actually hitting it and slowing me down.

This is my first bounty hunter event. I've done a 1:11.441 which beats all the bounties so far. I was expecting them to be really tough but maybe they'll improve through the month.

Well I have to shift into 5th otherwise I will hit the limiter. Controlling in 4th is also slower, so I don't see your point.

I am hitting 163mph, (262.3kph) before braking at the end of the straight. I'll have to try staying in 4th and see if it makes a difference to my split time.
Currently my best lap time is 1.09.903 after about 50 laps. I think I've got a few more tenths in me but I think the 1.08's of the top guys is beyond me.

For me it's still not slower than the speed I lose when shifting up to 5th. That's even with clutch, although I'm still only learning to use manual w/ clutch. But anyways, it might just be me not getting enough acceleration before the straight, especially out of the first turn.

Edit: Okay, if I shift up early enough, it's definitely easier to control, and might also be worth it speedwise. Sorry about the nerdy nitpicking, I just love talking about stuff like this. :)

Speak for yourself man. Ive managed to cut off another half second of my time and I’m right about 1:14 even. It’s good enough at the moment to be in the top third and beat about half of the bounties. This one is pretty tough I think.

fuzzynoise-01:13.261
Mechberd-01:14.703


Can’t talk about the others but I would expect Mechberg to be close to or below 1:10.00 by the end

What do you think ManteoMax?

Just watched your replay ...

Beside the fact you're almost in every turn in the wrong gear (to high) you just shift waaaaay to early.

The limiter is ~ 7000, you shift at 5000!

Why?
You already run no assists which is good, because they just slow you down (especially with this car !).

Just watch one of the replays from the top guys to see the right gears. This track isn't very complex. Basically it's just 2-3-4-5-3-4-3-4.

You can also try out the telemetry overlay to better 'see' where the gears ref out.

With the right driving line you can easy do a 1:12.0 even with auto shifting. Auto shifts ~6700.



With manual and the right driving line you should easily hit 1:10.5.

For everything below you should change to manual with clutch.

He and I are usually pretty close, and after a couple laps I'm at 1:11.889, so I agree that 1:10.x is likely.

Ouch. It took me quite a while to get back ahead of Lounge Toy and Plink last night, and that was pretty much pushing my limits. Guess I need to get a lot more practice in!

20 first laps - 1.10.9

20 laps more - 1.10.5

I think I could improve it a little bit, last two corners are the most complicated for me.

I hope they don't get to the 1.09's

I just spent 15 minutes knocking 4 tenths off to get down to 1:11.053... I'm not sure I can do much better tbh.

edit - I just got a 1:10.910.

If I could just nail turn 1, I think I could get down to the low 1:10's maybe into the 1:09's. I ran 10 laps to get a 1:10.8xx. This is a challenge for me to say the least because there is so much time to lose in the corners and not much to be made if I do lose it. I need to set my ghost to someone at a 1:10 just to follow and see where I'm missing the line at and the go from there.
