    Another lazy one lapper for 1:39.759. I used the IS350 Base Model with Racing Intermediate. Definitely was getting some wheel spin. I had the High RPM Turbo on my car so I had to really lower the Power Limiter to get to 520PP. I'm not sure if I would have been better off removing the turbo, or replacing it with a different model of turbo charger. Eh, it got the job done. Good luck everyone who's shooting for low, low time! :tup: :cheers:

    Arta Garaiya '03 with Intermediates was golden once I figured how to keep it straight. Good tuning exercise also dialling it in. Noticed some others with similar times used Racing Wets? At first couldn't figure what the ? with traction, then saw the 70% wet track.

    Used my Cusco Subaru 03 (508 PP) with racing wets. Funny that the sun is out and the track is 70% wet. Didn't realize this at first and had racing soft tires on. Ran 1:41.175 good enough for gold.

    Early 6th. place with my RX7 Base Model :lol: and best so far with this car :gtpflag:. At the end of the day sure around 1000th. I dont like 4WD so Impreza will not be used. Good Luck everyone!

    Same here but the fact, that the track is wet, makes it a lot more intersting. PD got it right.

    Thanks :tup:

    I'm not in the 34's anymore :D.

    Only removed camber and toe from the stock suspension so far. Not touched B/B yet.
    I've changed the trans, tweaked the LSD and have full DF at the moment :tup:.

    Good luck! :tup:

    :cheers:

    8 out of top 10 using active steering.

    I reckon they're all missing a trick by not using my Celica, still 1.3sec off that shooter bloke though :lol:

    Thanks mate :tup:.

    It seems like I can hit my best far quicker now :dopey:.
    I think I've had a big improvement in that regard over the last few months.

    When I start tweaking the suspension I hope to find a bit more though :dopey:.

    You'll find that second mate. No problem! :tup:

    Is it!? Haha it turns in like it's dry, and overseers like it's wet.

    And what's with the 2 right handers round the back of the circuit? You can jam the throttle out of the first one, but not even tickle it out of the second one. :lol:

    I'm not knocking it though.. I'm having a great time

    I don't know, maybe there's less water on some places or it's just the camper of the road making it quite funny sometimes.

    Used a stock BRZ GT300 on racing wets, got 1:42.XXX, gold's too easy with the BRZ

    EDIT: Can't stand a chance against KazaMR2 (PSN: KazaSupra)

    It would take a seriously beautiful lap for me to match you on this current set up.. I can't tune.

    Fantastic time mate
