That was the best first jump from the steep ramp I ever had 1.12 sec, almost crashed and the last flat over barrel ramp was 1.24. It is not much but slightly slower than your ghost. Only 0.010!
Both won't appear in my ghosts as I have boosted times also.
I'm not too strong either in the challenger or on Barcelona reverse, there's a few 1:18s on my list so will need to work on it. I only barrel the big jump when I have a lot of nitro otherwise I need to flat spin because there is only the one blue bottle and a few obstacles until the beach. Need to work on my start too, actually my whole route needs working on, think I'm missing a couple of shortcuts.
Nice time on the 12c, you should add nemesis, he's further ahead than me again! Are you talking about barreling off the very first jump in the map for 1.12? I still haven't got the fastest start figured out on Alps, I used to flat spin right across the curve almost to the first yellow as it gives enough nitro to make it to the barrel at the top of the hill but all the better times I've seen use either a barrel at the beginning or no jump at all. I just can't seem to get enough nitro to make it up the hill by doing anything other than the big flat spin. The other way I do it is knocking down all the AI and taking the first blue, but I still miss out on barreling the big ramp when I try that and still don't get enough nitro most of the time.
Don't know if I'll get playing much today, if I do I might have to focus on the biome mainly, I have made only about 700k credits the last few days as I've been restarting loads of races when I know I won't be on a fast lap. Need to focus on turning my 2 million into 10 million by next week in case the one:1 is available for credits! If it is there will probably be a cup on with it on Saturday and Sunday so need to have the upgrade cash available quickly too. If it comes out as IAP at least I can buy and upgrade the nismo and furai, and I still have 5 or 6 others that need maxed out, I just kinda gave up on maxing cars a couple of weeks ago when the nismo was released.
