Updated my best lap to a 19.33 in the Goteki 45...

23rd May 2007, 08:46 AM
Here's my first take at a weekly challenge:

Phantom - Mandrashee - Piranha
3 TTs, that produced the following records

5L: 1'46"81 (no P)
B1L: 22'07"
BL: 20'06" (no BR, lots of scrapes...)

I obviously suck at this game :redface:

Some technical questions:
Do you use the left or right turbo pad after the start/ finish line? With the left one I sometimes manage to clear the following series of left-rights with just two quick taps on the right airbrake. However, I can't pull this of regularly and if I manage to do it, I'm so exciting over a good time that I screw up at one of the following easier parts *sigh*
Also, when approaching the floaty section I cross the right double pad to get to the left of the track and take the first speed pad to stay low and don't gain to much height for the following declining right bend. Is that the correct racing line? Thanks for your answers.

Update, but still far from the best times here:

5L: 1'42"87
BL: 19"10

still no Perfect Lap though =/

Hi phlOw, hi all.

I've described my strategy before.....i use the turbo on the start of the floaty straight and, same as you, i pass over the bps on the right and on the single one on the left, but i make one br on the declining bend and a second one on the next jump.....;-)

the rest it's only ability to catch good fortune...ah ah ah! :D

Well, we all know I have the worst time so if you beat me you're not that bad;)

Hehe, well said. I don't quite get the feeling for braking into the very first bend, which is vital to pass the following S chicanes with as little steering as possible though. That's why I wanted to know which of the two pads you use? My best time so far was achieved by using the right one. Also the floaty section can become rather tricky with a heavy ship such as the Piranha. It seems as if it handles differently every lap there :D So maybe it helps clearing that section by simply turbo-ing over it. Will give that a try tonight.
HOW do you br on the jump, I wonder? I can pull off a br on the decline which- when pulled off perfectly- sets me exactly on the next pad, but I can only complete half a br there =/ Matter of quick tapping or height?

24th May 2007, 01:50 PM
HOW do you br on the jump, I wonder?

Nose-up, then <>< or ><>

27th May 2007, 03:17 PM
Hi all,
1.42.99 and 19.83 with icaras.
No time enough to beat my best times, but as Pierre de Coubertin used to say:"the most important thing, is to participate" (personnal translation)

27th May 2007, 11:10 PM
Mandrashee phantom --------------------- Monday Report

9 !! fellow WipeoutZone members took part of that challenge , that's possibly a record which has been tied i guess.
'only' 6 were competing for the racetime on that short & floaty track.
Seems everyone got his own technique with or without BRs and also different strategy using turbo boost. Thanks for everyone racing this cool track i hated for a longtime before really have a good feeling on it.

Stop the bla-bla and here's the result of this fortnight show :guitar :

1* Stin : 1.36.14 Goteki 45
2* Alterego : 1.37.96 goteki 45
3* Phlow : 1.42.87 Piranha
4* Sleh : 1.42.99 Icaras
5* RJ O'Connell : 1.45.21 Assegai
6* Q-DMC_12 : 1.54.48 Zone


1* Alterego : 18.23 Piranha
2* Stin : 18.44 Goteki 45
3* IL-NiK : 18.56 Goteki 45
4* Asayyeah : 18.64 Ag SyStems
5* Insertcoin : 19.03 Goteki 45
6* Phlow : 19.10 Piranha
7* RJ O'Connell : 19.33 Assegai
8* Sleh : 19.83 Icaras
9* Q-DMC_12 : 22.12 Zone

6 different ships for the racetime & 7 for the laptime : funny stuff :clap
And we got 2 winners with 2 incredible performances : Stin for an impressive racetime truly a constant great flying and Il NiK with the famous Feed Me fast & hungry ship who has eaten all of opponents with an amazing lap : congrats you :clap2 :clap.

So we will start slowly but surely our last Pure challenge, yes this is sad :( and i hope you will enjoy this last 28th tracks which will be .........

Altima VII rapier ---------------------------------- Episode 28

starting now and finishing Sunday 10th of June midnight

28th May 2007, 12:07 PM
Asa, check the dates! ;)


Yes, Asa... You really should. I know I have not been good with taking the challenges lately, but I intended to do so the in the last two... But then, all of a sudden, they end a week early. :(

On Koltiwa I entered the times from my first session, and then it was ended before I had a chance to improve them.

When will the last challenge end? Sorry for the whining...

28th May 2007, 12:27 PM
I am rofl'ing my self to death at DMC's laptime with his break-apart-on-first-touch-zone craft compared to everyone elses :D

28th May 2007, 03:10 PM
Ah **** in my mind it was the 27th for the end of Mandrashee and didn't realize even after Stevie told me that through msn !! LOL apologize Stephan and all of those who haven't read in my obscure mind :g

28th May 2007, 05:24 PM
Hi Asa, hi all.

....ah ah ah Dear Asa Sensei don't exchange wipers with their records.....;)

I make the 'Feed Me' Ship record in Mandrashee......I Hope that Il_Nik beat soon my time, but for now.....ehm ehm

You give to Cesar which is of Cesar.;) :D

Hey:mr-t, in the last clan I was in that was all that we used! We were the masters on zones.:robot

Anyway, if I didn't get last then there may have been something wrong - someone has to get last and I feel its my civil right in this community to be that 'someone'!!;)

Asa is a great fan of (studio) Liverpool, and i think he still can't accept the defeat against Milan in euro championleague. He took his revenge :D

NTSC-A / Assegai Developments / Unknown Pilot / PSP Control Stick

TIMES: Lap - 29.40, Race - 2:00.58 (with two sub-30 second laps)

I don't think that race time will be touched at all. I'm amazed it's held up THIS long.

30th May 2007, 03:15 PM
Good score RJ O'Connell for Triakis! ;)


30th May 2007, 04:09 PM
AltimaVII - Rapier - PIRANHA

TT: 2'09"36
BL: 0'29"99 Faster than my Phantom time :dizzy
achieved with 2 BR, one over the long straight, second at the jump after that. Think a 3rd is possible at the top of the hill right after start/finish, unfortunately though, Piranha's shield doesn't last 12BRs.

BTW, what is up with time keeping in PURE? In the records' statistics my times are always a tenth of a second slower than while racing. For instance when I set my fastest lap it showed 29"89. In the records, however, it's 29"99. Anyone know what that's about?

EDIT: Love that track, btw. Amazing overall velocity when finding the right line. Especially that S after the big jump *woooosh* \o/

Actually it`s not Assegai cos it is Triakis ;) cos does not count!

It`s in the Time Trial rules.


3rd June 2007, 09:26 PM
RJ : You can't compete with Triakis , you can post your time but it won't be accepted into the ranking of that TT challenge. ( you updated with Triakis ship into the ntsc tables but you wrote Assegai into your post : a bit confused ;) )

Even it's done with Triakis , this is truly a great score , you should note the 4 lap you did and also explain us your lines who let you get that result.

4th June 2007, 12:00 AM
Aw man. Now I have to do this all again...that whole "can't use triakis" rule kinda slipped by me. Not to worry, I can do it over. My bad.

BR spots: after the first chicane and once I get enough speed to get airborne off the uphill, at the uphill that leads to a steep descent, and off the jump. (I can only do the first one on laps 2-4.)

Basic strategy: Try and keep off the walls and maintain a good racing line with lots of speed pads. That's basically it.

Thx RJ :+

8th June 2007, 08:23 AM

Well, what do you expect from a Tigron? :P

15th June 2007, 12:43 PM
Hi All.

....ah ah ah :D Tigron in Altima....

For me it's a good choice! ;) (i'm third with this ship...:+)

Tigron has a big amount of energy like Triakis and in the tracks with many barr roll is a good choice......eh eh eh

Read you soon
ps i expect for the Asa's big resume of the TT challenge......;) good work Asa sensei!

15th June 2007, 12:50 PM
Hi all!

Me and Romano (his own idea :+) begun this weekly challenge on italian wipeout forum, and after some week of no-interest by the other italian guys (are here in Italy fellow wipeout pilots? :mad: ), we exported this one challenge on "Robb the Fox" wipeout great site.

Great idea :D

Thanking for this the Def's site of ghosts.

There I knew the greatest pilots :bat

Thanks to the name of Asa (thanks to Asa, above all :D ), this challenge became great here, a moment of race against eachother also out of kai.

With pain and sorrow I look your weekly races...:frown:

Good race guys :cowboy

18th June 2007, 08:37 PM
Searching for the laptime:

29.33 with GOTEKI

after a day (sunday) of forced stop (overtraining on my bike)

Turbo on the last tail of track, double BR on first downhill, missed the left pad taking all the others. Some scratches...

Getted sick after the first 20 laps after some months of inactivity :cold, thumb pain, hand pain, a blister on my ring-like... :paperbag :cold ...

ten minutes of coffee-break and other 85 laps with my best laptime. Not in time but I'm here :D:pirate

26th June 2007, 09:05 AM
Hi All.

WOW what a huge work you did : brilliant Rom !

31 pilots entering TT challenge along those weeks !

In terms of gold medal i am finishing 1st that's cool :) I like TT so much and been addicted to pure along those several months of challenge. ( actually nearly 10 months ! )

I must congrat you Rom ( and of course all the contenders who took part of that big challenge) for the regularity you did : if i am understanding well your excel sheet , you are the one who took part of the most challenge tracks, right?

Nicola has already written the 1st step of our future Pulse TT challenge into his thread : long live to it :rock

28th June 2007, 02:42 PM
Hi All, hi Asa.

Thank you for the 'congrats'.....:D

yeah! i took part to every TT Challenge.....this is a Real regularity....ah ah ah

This fact will have had to my old age.........it makes me to go more slowly,...... but it is always gone.! :D ;)

Now i'm waiting for my second experience in the world of wipeout: Pulse!

I hope, in a little time, i'm in my usual position in the chart.....behind of you and a little number of others.......ready to shoot some pulse beam , good placed, to you. ah ah ah ...... ;) :D
