    Well not entirely a fake car but only a concept car shown at the 2001 Tokyo motor show as the ultimate bike to car conversion :tup:

    Would be a great real life race series with a dozen or more of these on world tracks for a championship ;)

    I still like it. That and the washing machine Chaparral 2J. I like the 2J too bad. Cracks me up.

    I wish they'd have a couple seasonals with FF and with RR platforms.


    I went back in today to do the seasonals under my alias. I beat my time, so had to go back in under my primary handle and beat my back up account time, lol.

    1.12.3xx for P164. There is a 1.11 in me, I think, with enough laps.

    We are tied with the same time, went from the X-Bow to the damn GSX-R and improved 1 second. Hate this car.

    Have a few more runs at this in me, just really don't like this track and then having to use the run off area to be competitive.

    Hope the next Seasonals are a bit different and maybe somethings like German cars only.

    Added some more ballast and ride height changes to get a 1:11.033 for 45th (4th US).

    Play with ballast and weight balance to see what you can get away with tail happy wise.

    You say this all the time :lol:
    Anyways I gave this a try because I hate the 2X and I enjoy this one more but that run off area is a joke.

    I read all the posts on this forum, and I finally have something I think is worthwhile to post. I hang out at the Geezer Club forum for 60 and over pilots.

    I did quite a few runs at Willow in the Gixmobile today (stayed inside the cones on the run up). Had a red lap in the 1:10.9xx, blue lap at 1.11.069 with the following tune. Its original form was posted by Mateus Paulo (June 24) at a previous Willow Seasonal. I have changed it some (bold numbers)
    263 HP with no weight reductions plus 183Kg at +13. Change oil with all upgrades to power.
    102/91
    4.60/4.52
    3/3
    3/3
    7/7
    0/0
    +.54/+.02
    BB = 8/6

    6/30/6
    Max DF

    Transmission is my own but it was something from an earlier event. It seemed to work with a few changes so I left it alone. I reverse engineered it and the following is what I used:

    Reset, FG=5.000 TS to minimum
    1 6.925
    2 5.133
    3 4.151
    4 3.475
    5 2.901
    6 2.362

    FG = 3.0 Hope someone finds it useful. P. Mallard

    Same here, I refuse to use the GSX-R. I'm using the same car Subaru S206 NBR with @fordlaser777's tune from the Evo/Wrx TT https://www.gtplanet.net/forum/thre...ion-impreza-super-lap-tsukuba-circuit.333359/ , without the runoff and no driving AIDS other than driving line and Abs 1 I managed a 1:14.804 and the crazy part is I'm still finding time :lol:.

    @Jeje6410 I tried your x-bow street tune and managed a 1:15.997, it handles very nice and easily got gold on my first try. :tup:

    Nice... I think with a supper clean lap I have .200 - .400 to gain, that is it. Over driving the damn left right before the main straight and loosing traction on the exit. Messed this up 2-3 times while ahead of my best time. Set my best time with 497 PP due to not checking it and doing another oil change.

    We are usually pretty close on our times, this is crazy to be dead even.

    Tie broken coryclifford and I mean just barely: 1:11.030. A .003 improvement with time for only 10 laps. Made some differential and toe changes. Feels more stable and can consistently get 1:11.2xx to 1:11.4xx laps.

    Losing time in the second sector in the right hand bowl sweeper before the back straight. Chasing Doodles ghost and I'm .300 behind him heading into the right hand sweeper. Trying different things and gears to get my exit out of this corner cleaned up.

    We'll see about that, :p and nice time :)

    I don't know where this came from, but 1:09.155! Sector 1 was a best split, and I had my best ever sector 3 as well. That lap felt so good :D

    Man, you guys are setting some blistering times! Congrats!

    I improved my personal best to a 1.12.02x....but somehow feel like it doesn't matter much, lol.

    I'll be in the 1.11's if I get more time for laps. Car feels capable now, just keep getting little slides, have to stay ahead of them.

    I have my toe at .10/1.00 and wieght distribution +200kg, at 50/50, really puts down the power now.
