Hello,

When you're adjusting the gear ratios it should be the top bar, not 1st, 2nd...or 6th gear settings

Sherb...May sound like a Ground Hog Question (Repeated Many Times) but how come when you hit 1080 HD the clips stops every 3-4 seconds??

Bandwidth issues....either on your end, YouTube or your ISP.

Try kicking it down to 720P.  There will be a marginal difference in quality, but the stream rate won't be so bogged down.

Thats Awesome Paul, practice trying to maintain that time lap after lap.   Once you get that down, try to squeeze a little more out of it.   Thats 3 seconds faster already!

Its not actually that many - 

Just make sure you swap the handbrake and clutch option for the buttons so the "A" becomes the clutch and you press "A" +"B" for up shift and "A"+"X" for down (vice versa) 

Makes it easier than using the bumper buttons for it.  You'll gain significant amounts of time when you get used to it.

Well its all about car control, to keep it inside the white lines.  Still, its a good time you are getting and you must have really improved your technique :)

Paul, are you chasing a ghost? Watch the replays of the top racers and take it all in. Watch what gears they use and where they brake, what line they use on entry and exit, etc.

I learned so much by chasing top 100 and top 10 ghosts.
