Following on from the R32 'Ring challenge which was very successful (I
won that you know!) here's the latest one. First thing is that we're
not going to have The 'Ring again as we need something new for both
track and car so that's my fault for putting it as an option.

So we have Tsukuba for the track and, for the weapon, the Audi RS4.

As before you need to use Arcade Time Trial with no changes other than tyre choice and optional driver aids and you must photograph your winning time to enter.

Fastest time wins!

Only had a quick few laps. The RS4 really doesnt feel at home around there!

I know what you mean, I was having some fun in a DC2 today! Far more
entertaining than lapping the RS4, you can really feel the weight!

I gave it a quick try earlier and I was constantly getting high 1:04's / low 1:05's. The RS4 does feel far to big and heavy for such a relatively tight circuit. It seems to suffer from bodyroll (a lot of movement in the suspension) and understeer, the replays just aren't pretty compared to Tegs and the like of.

At the end of the day we are lapping a large, 4wd, turbocharged car
around what is effectively a go-kart track, so we can't expect miracles.

But like you said, way to much roll, too much understeer, and weighs too much, which is very noticeable under braking.

Best I've manage so far on the SS tyres. The annoying thing is there is
a couple of corners where I can go a few tenths quicker, but I got such
a good run out of the last hairpin on this lap!

Tis a heavy old hector that RS4. Seem to spend all the time avoiding understeer.

1'04.123 is the best I can muster after 15 minutes of swearing. May have another go later.
