Bravo! I keep telling myself re: the SRV run - how hard can it be to string together a perfect 8 minute run, come on, it's just 8 minutes, surely you can go 8 minutes without making a mistake. The fact is tho' that, were I to number my SRV's like you have I'd probably be in the "Pursuit of Excellence" #123 by now. It's no longer even about winning, just about doing a run with no major mistakes, preferably under 8 minutes. So yeah - bravo - I know only too well how fine the margins of error are for making a run like that!Managed to regain my ability to fly clean laps long enough to improve my time. Slight improvement for SRV too.

Funny you should say that ... normally I defend it and say how it's really low g so it's amazing it performs as well as it does ... but yeah, after this morning's racing I was imagining taking the value of whatever variable in the code affects that grip/spin thing and maybe tweaking it, just a tiny bit, perhaps only by 1 or 2%, so that breathing heavy doesn't make it spin round while trying to turn that first corner off the starting ramp.And I only number the ones I complete
I really hate how the SRV behaves once it's on the ground, all it wants to do is spin around 180 degrees.

I mean that is impressive. I hope your sanity returns from travelling around a planet on your ownI'll leave you with a short clip of a run this morning where I ended up going around a part of the outer circle on two wheels. It's probably not very spectacular to look at but I'm sure Shaye will appreciate that this just does not happen!
Right, that's it ... I'm out!

If you have the original, un-sped-up version of your video I could create a split screen version which might be interesting to watch? I think you're right tho - on both counts.For next time you give it a shot:
I looked at your lap and couldn't spot where you were slower than me either, so I put the numbers into my spreadsheet to compare sector times to mine. It's all at the tail end. At my "halfway" mark you're 2 seconds ahead of me. I have a theory that since I can't see where I'm going I am able to focus on building speed instead of aiming for the next bounce.
