arrechee is in two leagues I think. Yes, he is always faster than the faster opponent, I saw a few races of him, and it's just incredible. The most shocking was, exiting the last one and finishing 1st! (It was a 30 or 31 people race)
zomg, can't we just stop discussing whats right and wrong, its not what its about, its about what is fastest and nothing else, srsly dudes.
If you wanna use Macro, use macro, if you wanna use handbrake, use it ffs, if you dont wanna use neither, do that, and we all be happy, just dnt complain about why you arent as fast as both, and practise so you can beat them and say... MUAHAH!! i beat you by 0.01 Without handbrake nor macro!
Difference is, handbrake is there and can be used legally. Macro is not and is thus cheating. If you only beat someone by 0.01 using a macro then you're not a very good driver as the difference gained can be much more than that.
Achieving a good wr always involves one or more unrealistic ways of driving compared to real life. It could be lowered degrees of steering rotation, it could be excessive handbrake usage, it could be using serial/no-clutch shifting on an H-pattern/manual clutch equipped car, it could be using 0 or too little force feedback, it coulld be totally unrealistic passes over kerbs, it could be bizarre driving views, etc, etc. And most importantly, it could be taking advantage of the sim's physics/engine flaws!
So accusing arrechee for unrealistic driving because he's using the handbrake too much is ironic (if not funny), especially when the "accusers" admit they also use it or have used it (but less frequently :razz or when we all know they also use at least one unrealistic way of driving themselves (as most of us do anyway).
I used to disrespect arrechee's WRs when he was doing them using the macro clutch, because a macro recorder/profiler is external to what LFS provides. But the guy earned back my respect when he started flooding the charts with more WRs without the macro. He's obviously at least as much talented as any other WR holder in the top-5 (top-10) of the charts.
Btw, I don't think he needs to enter any league to prove himself. Leagues is a differerent story, here we're talking about hotlapping... or so I think. And regrading hotlapping, as far as I am concerned, arrechee is now as much established as any other world record holder in the top-10 of the relative charts.
omg you are starting all talks from the begining who is best who is not.......in my opinion arrowkart is da best in WR list Bawbag is da best in MHR list and marcel is da best in nutter list.......
also i read everything about Hotlapping with handbrake, so i agree also with one guy idea that if game has handbrake you can use it and that is no cheating......is it faster is it not.....same thing was with f-1 rear double diffuzors i dont know correct word in english ;] and FIA said its is legal, so handbrake or button clutch is legal here too.......
Sorry for my bad english............
P.S Bawbag will be the best only then when he will do all MHR World records
