OF COURSE I'll try that mate. Thanks for organizing this. Here's my slot for updating my times (did I say somewhere I should take a break? lol).

22.56 now

1st December 2008, 10:18 PM
/edit. I'll start the ball rolling with a PB 22:93.


1st December 2008, 11:40 PM
Yes speed lap of course!

2nd December 2008, 12:19 AM
Spot reserved and probably won't be used.:pirate

5th December 2008, 12:54 PM
New record by leungbok, 22.89, and 23.01 for me.
you can set the camera to see clearly the flashing time.

5th December 2008, 09:45 PM
I made a 22.83 sec tonight , but i left practice before saving my time :?

So i begin a new session , and i beat my record :beer


6th December 2008, 12:56 AM
Holy crap. Thats fast Wotan :clap

I've got a few more laps to do now. Must stop this french invasion. :D

/edit - Improved to 22:84

7th December 2008, 07:57 PM
some very fast times. I've managed 23.37 which i'm happy with, and is top 20 apparently :lol

curious if people are somehow managing a boost just before start line to get the uber times. Have tried repeatedly but tend to either smack the wall very hard or have to slow down to the point i am level with my ghost which didnt do it..

7th December 2008, 09:33 PM
with or without boost on the starting line, rushin, the result is the same. Of course the 1st alternative is harder, just to gain 0.05 or 0.10...

8th December 2008, 12:20 AM
in that case let me say again you are very good :) i had another go this evening and got several laps within .05 or so of my time, no way faster though!

can you believe i have a blister from using only the analogue stick :blarg

8th December 2008, 08:29 AM
thanks mate, but I must thank myself elhabib's ghost. He was one of the firsts, with Larikun (what happened to him? not a wiper anymore? lol) to break the 23.00 barrier, & I'm sure we can lower that time under 22.00 with of course, -a lot of- practice.

8th December 2008, 10:00 AM
Managed a 22.68 somehow with missing the last speed pad or boost barrel roll. Dammit. I know a low 22 is possible if everything clicked for one lap.

8th December 2008, 02:27 PM
Dont think ill get into the 22s.
Im not all that good on sebenco, and auricom is a difficult craft for me to use.

9th December 2008, 02:23 AM
Oh my GOD, what a SL session I just had. Managed to whip out a 22.31 (http://i88.photobucket.com/albums/k166/eLhabib/wipEout%20HD/wohd_20081209_010439jpg.jpg) (!!!) after 86 laps, and then, drunk from all the adrenalin, after taking the picture I selected quit race instead of end session! AAAARGH! No record uploaded!!! Took me another 2 and a half full sessions (237 laps!) to reach a 22.32 (http://i88.photobucket.com/albums/k166/eLhabib/wipEout%20HD/wohd_20081209_031520jpg.jpg) again and save it! So on the record tables, Wotan and me are equaled now - but for this competition I have a lead by 0.01 seconds! :D

btw: I'm convinced a sub-22 time is entirely possible with Auricom, I've beaten my own ghost by over half a second up to the peak of the hill, but then always failed to stick it in the end section (lots of BRs and a tricky turbo spot...)

9th December 2008, 05:58 AM
Stuffed the last corner, yet again. But I managed to nail the boost roll, so I ended up with a 22.48. I don't think I want to try this again.


9th December 2008, 07:08 AM
quote : Michael Corleone said :"Just When I Thought I Was Out, They Pull Me Back In". Ok tonight I must improve my time.

9th December 2008, 09:09 AM
Wow , congrats to elHabib and djKyoto . I thought my record was quiet , but now i must do another session tonight ^^ . I hope to break 22.00 sec barrier (i'm agree with you elHabib , it's possible)

9th December 2008, 11:39 AM
I'm not at home currently, so I can't put here your times sent on my PS3 (like Asayyeah).
I'll do it saturday. Tomorrow I will tell you my new challenge... on a reverse track.

9th December 2008, 07:07 PM
i have no idea what im missing on sebenco. id love for you to upload your ghost djkyoto, thats a seriously quick time my friend. good job :)

10th December 2008, 12:47 AM
I'm still not happy with it, but it's close enough to eLhabib's and wotan's times.
I know another half second is possible, but nailing the right lines on every corner and getting all 4 barrel rolls (well I do 4 anyway) is a pain in the ass.

10th December 2008, 03:19 PM
Hmm, Im not gonna reach a low 22 today. So congrats to Wotan and eLhabib. By the way my best time is 22.97. I just keep missing those damm speedpads

10th December 2008, 05:42 PM
My new challenge, from tomorrow to 20th december... Qirex on Moa Therma Reverse.

You can send your last times Auricom/Sebenco Climb until tomorrow, 12:00 GMT.

Good luck.

11th December 2008, 11:41 AM
23.68 for moa therma , proof is in your messages kaori :)
for sebenco, dont have the proof you'll have to believe my incredible 23.71 :)


11th December 2008, 07:55 PM
23.40 :)
22's is deffinitly possible, just need some sweet racing lines, and a perfect boost. Ill stick with that for now though!

11th December 2008, 08:02 PM
23.40 too ( missing one speed pad and not perfect line ) . I'll improve that tonight ;)

Where do you use your boost haydn ?

11th December 2008, 08:05 PM
just before the long mag strip, after the left hander - well, as early as i dare.

you come out of that corner so slow, even if you hit the boost. I just cant see anywhere else of more value to use it than there.

11th December 2008, 08:08 PM
Well , i'll try this method . For now i use my boost between the 2 speed pads on the second mag strip ;)

11th December 2008, 08:12 PM
nah your already at speed surely? unless im the only one who tries to use my boosts when their most needed - i.e, when your ships at its slowest.

11th December 2008, 08:31 PM
For now i use my boost between the 2 speed pads on the second mag strip ;)

I do this, but i'll try haydn's spot also.

23.22 btw. I can't see myself getting a sub 23 tbh.

11th December 2008, 08:42 PM
Wow , fast time mate , congrats ;)

So you think my method is faster ? (I improve to 23.36 , missing the same speed pad ^^)

Edit : 23.30 , missing the ..... :lol

11th December 2008, 08:48 PM
Well, theres a boost right at the start of the mag strip (imho a bitch to get), and I'm not sure how much benefit a track boost gives you im comparsion to when you're using your weapon speed boost or not. I'm guessing not as much as when you're using it, so I tend to use it in the gap where there is no track boosts.

Qirex sucks for the first corner also, I was always behind my previous Icarus ghost (23.31), but I made up the time on the tight left hander.

12th December 2008, 12:17 PM
right now im at 23.80, but what's frustrating is that on my good laps i ALWAYS miss the triple speed pad (that 23.80 i managed to nick one), and manage to clip that second jutty outy bit. I'll try your guys's boost spot, but right now im using it out of the tight left hander, towards the trip. sp.
Any tips on pitch? right now im only pitching up at first hairpin.

Plus this is a blast, shoulda tried the sebenco one.

12th December 2008, 04:09 PM
cant get it right as quirex. 23.40 is my best, even when i tried with harimau 23.22 is the highest i got.

with luck ill match djkyotos time at best.

12th December 2008, 05:00 PM
The Qirex doesn't suit me - at least that's my excuse ;) Feels like an overweight AG-SYS, without the acceleration. Always following the nose around the track.
Anyway, here is my 23.48 (http://i88.photobucket.com/albums/k166/eLhabib/wipEout%20HD/wohd_20081212_170218jpg.jpg), I don't think I'll improve on that, simply don't like this particular craft and track.

12th December 2008, 05:52 PM
I slowly improve, tenths by tenths, lol http://img300.imageshack.us/img300/9794/wohd20081212194213jpgpj5.jpg

12th December 2008, 06:29 PM
I got 23.30. I did miss a speedpad though. Not the one at the beginning of the mag strip but the very first speedpad. Stupid me.

17th December 2008, 02:11 PM
I should really start looking here more oftenly. Will be entering the challange when I get home!

(Though I won't be much of a challange... lol).

17th December 2008, 02:38 PM
23.41 here
Experimenting a BR ( not succeeded atm but really close to execute it ) : just before the long mag strip, there's the left hander, on the right curve before it , there's a mini hill ( right side of the track) you can have enough air to BR but you miss a speedpad ( the one on the left)
My turbo location is at the end of the 1st mag strip.

17th December 2008, 07:12 PM
23.45, same turbo location of most of you (between the two mag stripes)

20th December 2008, 06:34 PM
Big and heavy schedule with France Anzac, so the challenge 2, on Moa Therma Reverse with Qirex will take end monday 22th december, 18:00 GMT

22nd December 2008, 08:55 AM
Any hints on the 3rd rounds track/ship? :pirate

22nd December 2008, 10:35 AM
EG-X on Ubermall Reverse

22nd December 2008, 12:17 PM
Thanks Kaori. Just did a couple hundred laps of it. Will post my time soon. ^_^

22nd December 2008, 01:46 PM
My first 99 lap session on Ubermall produced a 20.54 on lap 50. Far from a perfect run, I'm convinced sub-20 is possible with EG-X. Will try to improve soon.

22nd December 2008, 06:38 PM
21.63 :(, needs to learn alot!

My first attempt :)


23rd December 2008, 07:12 AM
Hi All!

aaargh! EG-X don't suite me......I don't like its physics.....after a lot of laps I brake the 21 sec barrier, but I don't recognize myself in this result... :(

go go go to train myself on this unusual ship (for me) :D

Read You soon

23rd December 2008, 07:18 AM
This challenge has KIGO1987 written all over it.
EGX being one of his favorite crafts.

But then again.:paperbag

23rd December 2008, 08:46 AM
Where do you use your boost eLhabib?

This speed lap is kinda annoying, cause if you hit the wall on the 2nd chicane after your first barrel roll, you can fit in a third barrel roll in that part of the track.

I just did like 20 laps and took another 0.09 of yesterdays time, with missing 2 or the 3 speed pads before the 2nd chicane. Bah.

23rd December 2008, 08:47 AM
Fuk it! I missed Moa Therma, So its Ubermall Reverse with EGX, ill give it a shot:D I need to be in the right vibe to nail some records though, maybe a lil later on.

23rd December 2008, 08:51 AM
Maybe if you're quick and Kaori's nice, you can sneak in a quick Moa Therma lap. ;)

23rd December 2008, 09:55 AM
djKyoto: I boost right at the end - after the double speed pad on the long left, the turn gets a bit tighter, which makes you lose speed. I turn hard and a soon as I am pointing in the direction of the finish line, I hit the turbo.

More important question: which way do you go on the split? Left side has 3 speed pads, right side only 2, but right side still seems faster to me...

23rd December 2008, 10:02 AM
Lol, thats up to Kaori:g

Right is quicker. Cause its shorter and more of a stright than a tighter bend like in the left turn.

23rd December 2008, 10:55 AM
I'm going at the left atm, cause it's got the extra speed pad, but i'll try going back to the right. I use the boost right at the end also, in a similar spot.

/First post update kaori?

26th December 2008, 01:13 PM
Just did a 20.51 ubermall Rev/egx, i agree with Elhabib, it's possible to low under 20 with this ship :nod

26th December 2008, 04:30 PM
20.77 here : nasty 1st chicane

btw EGX is the worst i tested by far :nod

26th December 2008, 08:45 PM
It's definitely a weird ship in terms of physics, yeah, don't like it much either...

Oh and a little hint for the first chicane: turn blindly and extremely hard into the right with full airbrakes, and then do a sideshift left for the exit!

27th December 2008, 08:37 PM



27th December 2008, 09:17 PM
Nice run Stevie ! You can use your boost a little bit sooner, nose up & br before reaching the finish line ;)

30th December 2008, 04:27 PM
Merci mate!

I`m now to 21.01



31st December 2008, 12:19 AM
Current ranking on Moa Therma reverse:

Shouldn't that say Ubermall Reverse? ;)

31st December 2008, 10:35 AM
Hi All!

At least I made a 20.90 with EG-X in Ubermall Rev and a best (for now ;) ) of 20.80 with Icaras.....not bad, but i feel that i loose something around the track..... :D

Hey mate, did you noticed my improvement at 20.45 on ubermall R/egx, not that it changes alot the ranking, but it was hard to make this lap, lol.

1st January 2009, 11:56 PM
4th place. not bad, for me. Nice ubermall lap Kingheim.

2nd January 2009, 11:45 AM
crap i spent all that time trying to get a good lap in and didnt even right it down here. Not that 20.35 would have won it for me anyway.

3rd January 2009, 12:58 AM
