Well, practically, I'm an online driver, never chased lap times like this, and probably that time isnt the best I've done driving wise cause I've done nordschleife so many times and it's my favourite track. So I think it's a bigger accomplishment that you pulled that time off from not knowing the track before.
Here's the video of the whole track. It's alot of mistakes but it roughly shows the line and style I'm using. It's very different because I cant use throttle and brake at the same time as you guys with wheel and pedals. It's good enough for a 6:th place at wrecord though. You can see all parts this way Aaron, and the mistakes are quite obvious on the video, just a matter of getting a little cleaner lap.
And off course I forgot that fraps recorded my radio again
Awesome time Norman - can we see the video? I really wanna know if I lose time in the 1st part or if it is later on compared to you. My guess is that you are able to have a higher speed than me in the curves in the first 42 secs or so. And I think also you know how to take that last terrible slow turn faster than me. That turn takes me a full 7 secs.
So u lose to much time with ur sliding in the corners! if u drive perfect u dont lose time in first sector, in this run im 0,3s slower then my best, but had a good 2nd sector, 3rd sector was good but not perfect!
What did you guys do on the setup to make the Zonda so tame without jumping and such?And so fast also of course.Esp. Grnkjr0's Zonda accelerates heavily:-O I think I'll also make a vid showing my style on that track soon. Herzlichen Glückwunsch zum WR ,Cipriani!(Congratz to the wr)

I slide too much Norman? Well I would like to know how I can avoid that, besides you are not that much faster than me in the first 42 secs. I knew you had a different racing line than me in the 1st 42 secs of racing, but as you can see it is not faster. You are only 0.3 secs faster than me on that first part and I have done that 0.5 secs faster than in the video. I will have to say we are about the same in the first part, besides me sliding a lot.
If you look at these next pictures, you can see that you are 0.6 secs faster than me here which means you gained another 0.4 secs in the straights and then are 0.3 secs faster than me in that terrible slow corner at the end.
In the video your run is totally smooth without any acceleration hiccups - I mean the car does not slide in the rear at all - could you tell me what wheel settings you are running Norman? I think I have too much sensitivity. Anyway awesome run, but I will try to improve my run practicing that last part where I lose the most.
Cipriani I asked how com your run is so smooth in that video and if you could tell me wheel settings and you told me I slided too much. Yes I can see I slide too much, but how to avoid it?. Now if you think your settings and the other stuff are secrets, that is fine by me, but a reply would be nice
I have done a bit faster than my previous time - a 2.02.550, but it was not a good 2nd and 3rd sector. I have been able to improve my 1st sector a lot. Look at this picture where I am about 0.8 secs faster than when i did that 2.02.820 run. I am getting there - just need a lot of time testing things.
Cipriani has mastered one more corner than you on the track Poul, that might be it? ;P
Didnt Cipriani say something in the inner circle about using another wheel with less degrees of rotation? The sensitivity and stuff probably cant be straightly transferred then I guess?
I btw recently realized that I had forgot to change the sensitivity settings for my little gamepad since I had to start over with Jeffs save, that's why I couldnt feel right since that and also why I'm all over the place in my video. It's really impossible to keep good speed in any part of the track when the car is turning that agressive.
For those (if there are any more) that use x-box controller I recommend using these settings as a base: Steering Dead Zone-15% Accel Dead Zone-10% Brake Dead Zone-10% Steering sensitivity-5% Acell Sensitivity -5% Brake sensitivity-5% Speed steering Sensitivity 100%

Tonnzzaah (PC/360/PS4): Haven't it been quite dead for a while now? It's really a shame, as back when this was awesome place to hang out, and, well. I did stop being that active here, as unfortunatelly I kind of lost my love towards Need For Speed games. It's a shame, really...

CmdrTomalak (PC/PS3/PS4): Yep. Dead. Dead. Dead... Somebody should put it out of its misery. It all started waaaaaay back when Most Wanted came out and we all met on the EA forums and decided to branch out on our own. Sad way to go...

Tonnzzaah (PC/360/PS4): And unfortunately, the way Need For Speed games were for quite long time didn't help this place at all, for starters, I dropped off from NFS games completely. I did get both Shifts, Hot Pursuit (2010) and later Rivals, but they weren't enough...

Chandrian: I don't know how many of you know, but for a while, NFS World has worked very well on a public online server (probably a month or more since it became more stable), containing over 150k registered players.
Sept 7, 2018 14:15:36 GMT
Chandrian: The sync is now allowing races with more than 2 players, and pretty much all original NFSW features are working. The best part is that everything is available for in-game cash on this server.
Sept 7, 2018 14:15:53 GMT
Chandrian: You have to start with a new driver profile, but the progression isn't that hard. If you wanna play NFSW online again, then I advise downloading the launcher of this online server and also joining this Discord server:
