Its probably a good thing that I don't have a ghost, the line I take is usually terrible! Very Happy

I will disagree on the ghosts. That's one of the best ways to learn. Yeah, you can watch the replay. But racing that ghost really helps. You can learn what others are doing, see where you're losing time, see where you're gaining time, etc.

Aside from the "pressure", it's a great tool. I for one love it. However, if there was an option to not race ghosts, that'd be good.

As an example, Lou, you are braking too early for turn 5 (the long left). I know I gained a lot of ground from you there. And at the uphill section, I'm guessing you let up(?), you lost more ground there. Without a ghost, I wouldn't be able to point this out to you. And you might not be able to see where you are losing time.

Granted, I do watch replays as well. Gives an idea of what I could/ should be doing.

Oh believe me I know I had a horrible lap, but it was still fast... I think on my ghost lap I shifted into 6th at the bottom of the hill... After watching Fank's replay, that's wht he did... On other laps I shifted out of 5th at the top before the covered bridge...

I agree on the replays as a way to learn, but the ghost just gets in the way.... It especially sucks when you are approaching turn in and the ghost pops through and obscures your view of the line! I like the option to turn it off, so that's why I look for the guys that do not have replays when doing rivals... Very Happy

Still suffering through racing heebie jeebies?

While the ghost does obscure the line a little, by the time I'm racing the ghost I've got a general idea of where I want/ need to be. The popping up out of nowhere, while disconcerting at first is nothing. You get used to it. Or, you keep hammering at it trying to figure out how the hell they're getting so much speed there.

I can feel your pain about it being in the way at times. Still would rather an option of not having the ghost than just not seeing one period.

No heebie jeebies... I was able to race and beat Magics ghost in 6 laps... It's in the friggin way... Early on I'm far enough ahead that it doesn't matter... By the time I get to the 100k or 150k range of rivals, victory is measured by millimeters at times, and being distracted by the ghost moving THROUGH your car is enough to kill your time.... By then I know what lines I should be taking, and just need to settle in and hotlap!

You can hold off on the brakes at that corner for a really long time. I don't think I can save my ghost, but it would help if I could so I can give you an example of where to brake. I think that I am losing the most time in the uphill section and the first part of the last sector where you can't touch the curbs unless you want to end up on your roof. I always enter really wide on the uphill sweeping section and I don't shift down. It is hard to keep the car from sliding around at the exit.

You like Beef, have patience. I kinda zoned out last night trying to beat Sh0's time. So I'm not sure how many laps I ran. I think 5 or 6 laps. Maybe. But I know that in the beginning I would turn 2 laps and be done with it. Rarely do I do 3 laps. Perhaps the prospect of a reward helps. Actually, it does help. Otherwise I wouldn't put that much more effort into it.

Still have yet to earn that achievement for posting a time on every rival event. One of these days. But these club races are hindering that. I've got 2 maybe 3 races to go in season mode. Just haven't found the time.

Since you can't affect ghosts, ignore it. So what if it comes through your car. Do the same and go through it. Smile

That's one way I've learned (via hotlapping - not rivals). Not that I've gone back to it. But when entering into hotlapping mode, when it puts up 2 ghosts, you learn and "memorize" where you want to be. Who knew a game would require so much effort. This "avergage joe" crap is gonna be thrown out the window if we all keep up like this.

Why you gotta go and tell everyone how to do it man!!? Just let us do it our way... Razz

I do not have fun with a ghost in my face, so I choose not to run against one if I can! Wink

FINE!!! BE THAT WAY!!!!

If you can deal with the ghost, then you can deal with some moron in front or behind you in a race. Learn to ignore 'em (to an extent).

You don't want my help, fine. I shall pack my bags and find another club ... wait ... no .. YOU GO FIND ANOTHER CLUB. Start a "NO GHOST RACINGZ" or something.

I'm just trying to help. Your way sucks. That's why I'm helping. But you don't want it, fine, don't take it.

I won't get over it. I'm now hurt. I will now be aiming to punting Lou. I'm sure Low will allow me this...[/abuse of power].

Wow.... [woman]Fine I will never ask you for help ever again! Especially if you are going to act this way about it![/woman] Razz

You seriously need to get over it... Seriously... I respect that you feel my way sucks, but it works for me!... That' what counts in my book... I could care less what you book says... Unless of course there are naked pictures of Olivia Wilde in it, then I'm very interested!

Did it, by the skin of my teeth with a 1:36.527. I got really close (1:36.640) after just a few tries from being two seconds off yesterday, but it took me 16 laps after that to beat it. Razz

And yes, Frank, that tune is awesome! Thanks again for sharing.

I can agree, but she did not make it to my list since I have a Niece named Emma who is a redhead... Seemed weird....

I agree with Marm, the ghosts help me to get a better time. I couldn't catch beef because I did not see where I was gaining or losing time, great time by the way. The only time that I find ghosts distracting is in autocross rival races.

Marm, I just looked at the leaderboard, 3 thousandths of a second separated us, what does that translate into on the finish line? Half a foot, less?
