    I'm speechless. :bowdown:

    The most thorough review of any car I've ever seen, topped up with first class pictures and captions to match! No doubt, you, sir, are an artist. I just don't have the words to use so I'll remain silent in awe. And begin looking for towels before my keyboard drowns in drool.

    Speaking of the turbo brother of the GTHO... it's coming. Hurricane warning, I might say. I don't know how fast it is yet but I have a feeling that I'll invite you for a test drive when it's done, it just might have the small touch of sharpness that the GTHO is lacking.

    Back to business then, you reviewed out my car, I owe you one in return. Anything interesting in mind? :cheers:

    Damn, I hope that some day some of my cars will receive a review like that. That is a true masterpiece. :tup:

    You didn't know there are actually five Black Beauties in GT4, did you? Well, actually this fifth one is available only for those who really want to see it. For the ones with less faith there is a more ordinary looking blue model. And once you've seen it, you won't forget it that easily. No, this is a car to be remembered. It isn't extraordinarily powerful, not extraordinarily light. But there is something. And that's the combination of all its qualities. Snappy but smooth, blindingly fast yet comparatively easy to drive, the R390/870GT has it all. You can even drift it if you like, but to extract the best out of it you should be screaming forward at breakneck speed, actually faster than what any other road legal car is capable of. Meet the Carbon Creature and have a great time.

    I'm working on it!

    Reading such a fantastic review got me inspired.



    Greycap: Something tells me that the 5:th black beautie isn't in the game.. except for it's original blue colour.
  6. The R390 (black version) is found in the Used Car Lot 2. Same week as the other black beauties.

    I think what he meant by the 5th black beauty is the MFT tuned R390. LOL

    The MFT car is based on the road car, smarty.

    Which there is no black version of.

    So it can only be seen by those who really want to see it.

    Photoshop FTW!

    You are welcome, it's a pleasure to be able to give something back after getting such enjoyment out of your work :) But you are too kind. artist? no, just a former editor with too much time on his hands atm :sly:

    Sounds interesting, I must admit I've hardly driven the forced ford but I have a feeling that will soon change ;)

    Thank you, I'll send you a pm.


    Thanks again, don't worry I will be giving you some feedback on a few of your cars soon, starting with a certain black beast! :D

    wow.., you really dedicated yourself to playing GT4 and understanding each and every car in the game.., i am speechless, i cant relate to the setups of the cars.., wish i could do the same (i really, really, really, really want to), spending time tuning cars, perfecting their performance, the works of a true GT fanatic.., but, sad to say, i only play GT4 in a rental shop *sigh* ...,

    this is like, THE best thread ever on the GTP forum.., two guys who have true passion on cars and dedicated themselves to the game that is Gran Turismo. i mean, who else would take time getting old cars, tuning them to perfection and show them to everyone?? just like what i saw in another reply here: these two Finnish men have patience and perseverance, traits of a true GT fanatic. incredible guys, keep up the excellent work.., i wish this thread would have the support of the whole GTP community.., :tup::tup:

    Rotary Junkie - Hit the nail right on the head there. Believe in the car hard enough and you'll have it. :tup:

    Brock5000 - Well, whatever you are, you have skill. The PM'ing is underway. :)

    =drifting24/7= - The words like yours are what makes this thing worth doing. Thank you!

    Well my review of the Mitsubishi Galant (both the Finn's car and with my tuning) has been totally ignored. :( But whatever. You guys have the most successful tuning shop here, good luck in the future.

    Didn't I write something about it? Or did I just think about writing? Whatever, this has to be corrected.

    If you did, i haven't seen it. Page 24/post 477 i believe. Normally, i wouldn't care, but i spent over an hour driving your car, and then "my" car, and comparing the 2 online when i coulda just been doing some races in gT4. Anyways, i appreciate your attention, and if you already commented (and i just am not seeing it) i stand corrected.

    Well, it seems I just thought about writing. Apologies for that. :guilty: So I'll write now. :tup:

    Yep, that's one of the easiest ways to shave well over a second off a lap time. As the power is limited, it must be fully used.

    Very low suspension tends to create a very stable car, and for me at least, stabililty equals understeering. Thus I prefer higher setups and against the common opinion, I also like the looks of the car better when it still looks like a car and not a frog ran over by an eighteen wheeler.

    It's simple physics, actually. The stiffer rear enables the rear tyres to get overloaded during hard acceleration, thus losing grip.

    That's the technical part, I think. Other than that, I can only appreciate your work comparing every little aspect of the cars to the smallest detail, even the bouncing when going over curbs. Your style is what we need here, sorry for this forgetting. I promise it won't happen again. :tup:

    You're welcome. :tup: Yeah, i'm all about noticing details, and i've learned some stuff from you Finns.

    Again, i really dig the way your car would gather a bit of slip if i punched the throttle out of a turn. I want to try one of your other cars in the future...and again compare it to the way i'd tune. I don't currently have a car i need you to tune, though..hope you don't mind if i just drive yours & compare. :)

    and tomorrow, you all shall meet an old friend, that usually lives around highways and racing tracks. Some say that he's always right next to you, waiting for fatal error, and that he has made a succesful career as a singer in Bill @ Ted movie. But this time, He'll be here strictly on business, delivering previous fast cars to the other side ( except for R390/870GT). And he is..

    Excellent! I was considering requesting a Nissan R390 that, you know, isn't an axe-murderer. Speaking of which...

    I tested out the Korean road rocket and I would like to thank Leonidae for bringing me flowers ;)

    That is all:)

    At first glance it looks like any ordinary GT-R.. But something isn't right. You can feel the presence of this car, and in the darkening night, you can almost see an aura around it. This car is vicious beast, faster than anything else. It diminishes even the almighty Godzilla, R32 GT-R that started the legend of unbeatable twinturbo monsters. This car is known as Grim R34per, and for a good reason.. Because you never know if it'll take you to the other side of the record time, or to the dark depths of hell. Development of this car took many lives, thus, treat it with respect.

    Rest In Peace, and GodSpeed..

    Get used to seeing that, people. Well, that is, if you plan on keeping up with this. (Just my bet. Leo is the GT-R Freak, it's an MFT car... It's got 900+hp.)

    Well, let's say this. You are dead.

    Hmm... Could that possibly be the reason behind the name?

    You bet that's the reason. :tup:

    On the other hand, it can kill the driver too. You never can tell with these machines. My R-Tune in "only" the Red Devil, but the Grim R34per takes the victory by an infinite margin when it comes to deadly GT-R's.

    Oh, and speaking of GT-R freaks... I don't think you know my background. ;)

    Rotary, just to tell you the truth.. This car delivered 1'33 @ GVS on R5's. with R3's, it's about as fast as Godzilla is on R5's, meaning that it's capable of pulling sub 1'40s with ease.. and it keeps killing me, and even Greycap.

    Man it has been forever since i posted in here, mostly due to school and what not, i haven't even played GT4 in quite some time either, maybe the Reaper is enough to spark my interest again.

    I've always had an interest in unusual cars, or possesed, or w/e, because every time i see one, especially when people are hyping about it, i just have this inner voice that says "bring it on".

    I don't know when i'll test it, or if i will, but either way once the motivation fully kicks in, you'll know.
