    Make sure you didn't put the upgrade parts on your car. Because if I upgrade my M4, I get those exact #'s.

    Yea, that's what it was. My sincerest apologies for putting out wrong numbers. I've fixed that post with stock numbers. 2 of the ones I had were modified, the 3rd wasn't, so I'm using that one. PP 517 / 446 HP

    Thanks for making your prize selections!

    The July 20th lineup has been posted!!

    HUGE thanks to @KTR5 for summarizing the new lineup and to @Dragonwhisky for creating a custom tool to work around the GTP12's God-forsaken editing functionality!! :bowdown:

    I take it that thing worked?

    Well mostly it seems. Looks like there's a buggered URL tag missing some brackets for last week's combos. It appears you were able to fix the June Champions link issue though.

    As someone who wrestles with a lummox of a legacy system every weekday and many weekends, I have a special appreciation for the work you guys put into this week after week; kudos.

    Keep this one smooth, but you'll have to flick this car on corner entry to be able to get the car to Rotate.

    Gearing:

    1st Corner: 4th Gear

    2nd Corner: 3rd Gear

    3rd Corner: 3rd gear

    4th Corner: 3rd Gear

    5th Corner: 3rd Gear

    6th Corner: before the turn you'll be In 4th, for somepeople. It might be tempting to keep it In 4th.. Drop it to 3rd and get the acceleration you need coming out.

    7th Corner: 2nd Gear

    8th Corner: 3rd Gear

    9th Corner: 3rd Gear

    10th Corner: 3rd Gear ( Before the corner you might be in 4th for a second ) so watch out on downshifting going in.

    11th's Corners: 3rd Gear

    12th Corner: 3rd Gear

    13th Corner: 3rd Gear

    As you can tell. 3rd gear will be abused :)

    Yup, it worked! As for the URL tag missing, it only took a minute to fix it thanks to it. That sure beats the hell out of taking an hour to fix countless randomly generated errors! Thanks again! :cheers:

    I think the BMW M4 at Apricot Hill cambo wants everyone to know that 3rd gear has been considered underrated for too long, now is it's time to shine!

    I have the same HP & PP on the old one I have and the new one I bought. Something wrong with the other guys car to have the HP & pp higher than ours.
    Man these post move fast. Forget I even wrote anything lol.

    We really should give a shout out to @kcheeb , as he's the one that showed me how to make the magic part work. He is missed around here by at least a few of us.

    Regarding the BMW M4 and the HP/PP: Stated as being 508HP and 584PP
    The question remains:
    I have overhauled the engine and only have 446HP and 517PP.
    Only one model is available in Dealership. Why is mine so low?

    The 7-20-2014 Lineup still has republished the 508-536.

    I believe this is a transcription error modified car and has been debunked in the last few pages

    However, the 7-20-2014 Lineup still has the 508/584 republished.

    I think what threw some of us for a loop with the Beamer was that at first glance it didn't look modified. You can't modify the suspension, transmission and drivetrain. It's only when you scroll down to the power that you have limited options available for modification.

    I've been doing some reading on this. The most recent things I've seen seem to lean towards the end of 2015. There's a bunch of contention when it comes to licensing right now. EA wanted to use the Ferrari license (which Microsoft apparently controls for PC and Xbox) so they came to an agreement back in the Forza 4 days, thus the Porsche Pack for F4 and the inclusion of Ferrari in some second-rate EA title. Microsoft has opened up the Ferrari license since then, hoping to get EA to do the same, but that hasn't happened. No one is even trying to deal with EA from what I can tell. It's kind of at a stalemate right now, so I'm betting nothing will change until the end of next year. This is some conjecture on my part, so take this with a grain of salt.

    Reviews are done for the week....and I'll just leave this here as a blast from the past. I haven't been on much the last week and saw a bunch of posts about it while trying to catch up ;)

    It means you will score points in one division for two weeks and score points in your new division for two weeks.

    If you have a number at the end of your GTplanet ID, it's probably one too high on the drivers list. I will make the changes to my sheet and they will all be fixed with the next update.

    You lose your current points. It is not carried over. You start fresh in your new division.:grumpy:

    @TEX36 Welcome Home....we missed you

    I'm trying to get my GTP name changed to Zii1993 so it matches my psn instead of my email and it'll be a lot less confusing.
