ZCT 172 (Marsh of the Fireflies)
« on: October 29, 2015, 02:15:10 PM »
Flooded track. When I appeared here at ZakStunts, it was a very frequent occasion. Nowadays it has become rare.

Earlier this year I adjusted the track plus the bonuses to have a powergear race. This time I did the opposite. Melange race will come, I guess.

It is a pretty good flooded track -- not annoying and with good rhythm.

I can't repeat Duplode's super mini jump around 35 seconds... that will give him the victory.

We'll see... there are too many small things that might matter in this track for me to bet on that.

It's a known trick in the community since (at least) 2002. Look at second 18. :P

Of course it is a long known trick (by me), but it can be performed at different levels. Duplode performed it excellently. I also did the trick but I could not bring that much speed to the straight.

Alright. It was surprising hehe. Now I understand. BTW we should give a name to this trick.

1:11.85... I re-drove the track on Thursday but couldn't find too much time...

It is noteworthy how I could only improve 1.05s from my last public time while, similarly, you managed 1.10s. I guess this was a tough race for both of us.

I think just the mid-month replays were stronger than excepted.

I just quick-checked your replay, Duplode. It seems you won the track before the pipe jump and at the mentioned mid-track aerial corner with the mini-jump there. On the second half of the track I was faster at all the corners.
