I believe you, I bought the Saleen for the first time last night and did 5 laps of Trial Mountain with a best lap of 1:15.395, so I know those times can be done.:D

VenomS, looking at your times the fast lap pretty much came from nowhere (apart from the 1min16sec). Did you just get everything right that lap?.:D

I've got the Saleen time in to the 14's, to be precise a 1:14:895, I think I can go a bit faster but not too much.

Did one good flying lap with the Toyota GT One and managed a 1:12:537.

Nah, where mainly using the Saleen Mustang that you buy from the Ford dealer for $1,000,000.

If anyone wants to corner bloody fast they should use the Mini that you buy for $1,000,000, man it hangs on like its on rails.:D

The 1:18's are probably laps where I slightly screwed a corner or two. The 1:21 probably involved a spin where I was trying to hard. I'm able to get 1:17's regular, some 16's while the 15 was a corker. I think I can get below 15 if I continue to improve on a few sections of the track, but getting it altogether whilst pushing hard isn't easy.

Did you use a steering wheel, or the analogue control?
