Short burst of nitro, directly after gear change are most effective. Especially on HC where more nitro only means more wheelspin.

I just tested the Mini on a wet track. It was still raining and dark when i broke 2.39. My best with the mini, still on a wet track is now 2.37.2.
Mini is better in corners and less twitchy than the 370Z.

That was about as good as it can get on this track great run.

Btw, any difference between stock Mini and the new Police version other than the additional cost of buying it ? Other them both cornering on 2 wheels :P

Mini has a tendency to go on two wheels and not corner. Can be annoying.
I picked the Police version, as i like the looks. There won't be too much difference between them, except livery.

I can always try the standard Mini Cooper S. I should be able to shave off some time on a dry track. :party:

I tested the regular Mini Cooper this morning and was able to get similar times. However, that Mini does understeer a little bit more, but can do higher speeds uphill (380+). So there is a slight difference between them.

Stats are also different. But as known by now, they do not really represent real life performance in The Crew. Mostly misleading.
For example; Mini Police has higher speed stats, but in reality i was able to drive much faster uphill with the regular mini. Maybe different gearing.

With both sub 2.40 times are possible. :party:

Edit: 2.38 flat with the normal Mini. I had to lift in the last section due to heavy traffic.

PS Pikes Peak is a popular place. Traffic is barely in the way, but other players are frequently.
Also it is in a rain happy zone. Crew should down the rain a notch. ;)

No video of that run, as the counter kept running for over 25min :roll:

But i do have a video of my previous best at 2.54.5. Easy run when it got dry and no idiots coming down the mountain in drift cars. :lol:

The GTR35 in Perf works well at Pikes Peak. 8-)

Good time on it, it is hard to keep on pushing all the way up the hill, but i did just manage a 2:54,396, but was still dark so waiting for it with be daylight before i can commit 100% to it, as i couldn't see all the rocks in the twilight so you only feel them when you get launched into the air.
