    I always enjoy hearing about how other people are doing in their racing, what's your best lap at the Speedway, Uptown, Parkland or other race tracks? Share them here along with your goals and other achievements!

    So far, here's my Speedway lap record!
    18:00:10 - 05/03/2021 You set a new personal best lap record of 00:29.44 on Speedway

    My goal is to beat Toxic Monkeys whenever and wherever possible.

    It's harder than you would think, the toxic ones are faaast.

    I had the speedway class B record for a few days before the above terror happened to it.

    You finished 1st in the Vector race and have received 3 racing points! Your best lap was 01:00.79
    You finished 3rd in the Speedway race and have received 1 racing point! Your best lap was 00:27.28

    These times are the closest to Global I’ve achieved, currently building a few cars

    My observation is there are only a couple of upgrades that are actually exclusive, presuming the highest available of each type is used and those upgrades can be summed up in three major options- Top Speed (Long Ratio) vs Acceleration (Short Ratio), the Turbo, and Tarmac vs Dirt.

    So usually I can pretty much replicate someone's build if they answer those three questions.

    So, for example, What car did you use? My NSX S3D
    Honda NSX with Short Ratio, Three Stage Turbo, Dirt

    That shorthand removes most of the need to get into specifics unless there is something uncommon going on.

    A parting thought- track lap records are generally going to be held by fully upgraded cars for the class in question and operated by someone with a very high RS. Replicating their setup is a good idea if you have lots of points to use, but most players are better off taking the upgrades with the highest percentage of improvement relative to the points spent (strip out being the most prominent example, as a 1 point upgrade that often provides greater benefits than 6 point upgrades).

    Hope that helps.

    I'd also add that the car/setups that can achieve the best fastest lap time (record chasing) aren't always the same ones that can achieve the best average lap times (racing). Some times, but not always, the best car/setup is dependent on what you are trying to achieve (wins vs records)

    Since I already kept track of fastest laps per track for my previous faction, now there is a spreadsheet in the works with a form where everyone who wants can put their times in.
