I would love to see an update with the total times so far.  But for now I put up a time last night with my Tourney car the Elise (not a Leaderboard car FYI).

Date: 8/19/13
Time: 1:38.9XX
Car: Lotus Elise

P.S. I am still sick and have a Kidney Stone so that time might be a little off.  My brain isn't working all that well right now.  I'll double check it later.  It was 8 tenths faster than Atrum's time which I think was 1:39.7XX.

I'll update the total times tonight. I think anything sub 1:15 is very fast. That Alfa of mine feels like a fast car. It might not be optimal for the track, but that was still a pretty fast time. I believe the RS5000 or w/e is the 'leaderboard' car for this track. Didn't see anything else when I glanced at the top times.

Ps. Your 1:40 and 1:39 are really 1:13 and 1:14

That's a very nice time KnightOwl. It'll be a tough time beating that in my current car.

Thanks guys that's about as good as its going to get for me. I might be able to knock a couple tenths off the first turn but I'm not going to try.

Next step is loading whatever the leaderboard car is and going "OMG I'm suddenly 3 seconds faster" lol

Sorry about not getting the overall times updated yet guys, I keep forgetting at home and at work I dont have access to the forza website to check times.

Right now I'm bouncing back and forth between my Evora and my Masarati. They both put up about a 1:21/1:22 when I have my grip tune on the Masarati.  

The Evora rides like it's on rails and is super easy to drive, but it doesn't have a ton of balls for straights.   The Masarati has two builds, grip and speed, which benchmark at 199.6 and 222.0 respectively.  I think the Evora hits like 185-190 on the benchmark.  I haven't run either of them on Le Mans or anything with a straight to test the actual top end though.

Puppet, here's my advice:

If a car is too easy to drive, you have to drive it that much better to keep up with everyone. Example:
Car A is a rocket, you can mess up corners and gain it back in the straights. If you corner well you pull ahead.
Car B is a handling beast, if you hit a corner normal Car A keeps up with you and you lose in the straight. You have to hit a killer/fast apex to gain on them.

Handling cars can be viable, I just know through (literal) years of experience that it's a lot more difficult to place higher in them.

PS: You could always bust out something like an Exige or RS5000

I'll probably run the Maserati because of it's speed and versatility.  I'd probably use the Evora if someone pulls Rally, Fujimi, or another curvy course.
