    You have to drive it to understand it. It's as simple as watching when the arrow points right and is green (regenerating), and when it points left and is red, it's using the energy. Modulate the throttle so you can see when it starts to use the energy rather than store it.

    I'm trying with a detuned Mazda LM55 VGT. He's going wide a lot and way too hot into turns. I picked this LMP for the 4WD but he's messing up a lot. ~6:30 into the first lap he makes it to 1st place so his pace might slow enough to not go off anymore. This is great if it works. Just leave it on while I'm doing other things and set a time so I remember to restart when it's done.

    I lost that one when I had to restore a backup and haven't bought it again. Are you using it for any other races? I never used the VGT ones much (other than the VW one, because it's the spiritual evolution of my car IRL), so I was wondering if I should spend the few millions it would take to buy the ones I lost again.

    I never use them because SNAIL doesn't use them. The BMW is a great car to drive and sounds nice. The Nissan is also nice and sounds really mean.

    It works! Running time is 28 minutes. Pits again on Lap 2 for Intermediate tires even though the track is drying out but it doesn't matter. He still gains time every sector. Set to the highest push setting and leave it alone for 28 minutes. Done.

    We don't use them often heh. And I remember one time it brought up a conversation about physics and people generally frowning upon them. I don't mind to be honest. They all handle pretty well.

    Well we don't use them often because they only make up a very small percentage of the cars we can choose from. We're up to 8 or 9 VGT cars now out of almost 1100 (from what I remember) that we can choose from? That's why we don't use them often, haha.

    My neighbor has too much money. Every year he gets another brand new sports car and has to drive it by my house a couple of times a day.
    First it was a Nissan GT-R. Last year it was a Audi R8. Today he drives by in a New Jaguar F-type. :drool:

    I love the F-Type Coupe. Wish I could take a drive in one.

    I think the game has more than 1230 cars now (not counting the Lunar Module, because it's ******** that I can't drive the Nordschleife at 30 km/h while wearing a spacesuit).

    Our cap for cars is 1 million credits though. That eliminates somewhere around 150 cars.

    Whenever I feel someone makes too much money I think to myself, have I ever been overpaid for anything? It usually changes my perspective and makes me say, "good for them." It's my opinion that only a few make too much money, and soo many make too little. Jaguars for everyone I say! :cheers:

    I think I have over 80,000 miles in game. That might explain the cracked and now useless gt6 disk. I get my new disk tomorrow!:)

    I think I might still be under 20000km. Does the total distance include miles driven while a room is in practice mode?

    Yes that says 900 hrs. Yes, I have no life. (Its basically the only reason I'm fast in GT)

    Edit: On GT4 I probably had 15k miles just on Nurburgring alone.

    I've still got a little bit to go to reach 40,000. Can you tell what I race most of the time by this screenshot? And that top speed was one heck of a lag bump at Daytona hehe.

    While you're all comparing mileage peen, have a gander at this. May will not get here soon enough. James Spader will be the ultimate bad guy.

    Gotta say that the most impressive stat for me is almost hidden: 1887 races with 880 wins.
    That's incredible.
