    _____________________________________________________________________________________________________


    BONUS CHALLENGE:

    PD has made a mistake in this time trial, they missed to add the "Nissan CALSONIC SKYLINE '00" to the list of eligible cars. Instead they added the "Nissan 180SX Type X '96" to the list of eligible cars. (Thanks to KimiHR for finding out why it is eligible) So anyway, the challenge is this:
    What is the fastest time you can achieve with the Nissan 180SX in this time trial?

    IMPORTANT UPDATE: on friday evening PD made the Nissan 180SX Type X ineligible again, essentially closing the bonus event:grumpy:
    But the folks at PD really must be a bunch of morons, because they did'nt make the Nissan CALSONIC SKYLINE '00 eligible. Instead they added the "Nissan Calsonic IMPUL GT-R '08" TWICE!:lol:

    Leaderboard:

    1'st: Ed_Night - 1'24.520
    2'nd: et_ - 1'24.727
    3'rd: King_Fatts - 1'24.973
    4'th: ThrasherDBS - 1'25.924
    5'th: Mahen N - 1'26.500

    Rules:
    -The time must be set within this seasonal event, using the Nissan 180SX Type X '96.
    -Anything the game allows is allowed.
    -Take a picture of the time for verification. (shot after the lap was completed, and before 3 laps has passed so that it doesn't disappear. With the "behind the car" view. And make sure both the car and time is visible.) Note: You dont have to post the picture if you dont want to, I will only ask for a picture if the time is suspiciously fast, or someone else would like proof. Here is a good example how to do it, by ThrasherDBS:

    I mean, they both have 4 wheels, right?

    I set a 1:22.265 in a fully stock raybirg hsv-010. I love that hsv around the nurburgring and Laguna seca. I think the pp was at 583 or little more but It is still a fast car.

    I got 1'24.7 in the Nissan 180SX Type X '96

    Even if it's close, I doubt it is possible to get gold with it unfortunately:indiff:

    1'23.9xx is possible no doubt, but getting down to 1'22.9xx is most likely impossible.

    Put together a quick tune for this in the HSV-010 GT 15th Anniv Version, it could work with the other HSVs but i only have the 15th Anniv version at the moment. However i'm surprised it worked rather well knowing nothing about tuning on this game. Which is why i've had to rely on others most of the time ;) (Which is not my strong suit as you can tell). I think i'll just put this here as a base tune i'm not going to update it any further, anyone can change it to their liking and post it on the thread if they would like to. But anyway here's the setup. (It got me a decent 1:19.405 which put me 71st at the time of this being edited twice if not more)

    Tyres: Racing Hard

    Suspension (F/R):
    60/60
    15.03/16.07
    4/4
    4/4
    3/3
    1.0/0.5
    0.00/0.20

    Brakes:
    5/5

    Transmission
    Set Max Speed to 149
    Then Final Gear to 5.500
    1st - 4.334
    2nd - 3.235
    3rd - 2.473
    4th - 1.934
    5th - 1.565
    6th - 1.304

    Drivetrain
    6/17/8

    Power (Everything left as it is)

    Body
    Downforce is stock 300/550

    Thanks @OzzyOzborne! I'm just loading up my PS3 right now and I'm going to take on these new Seasonal Events. I happen to have the 15th Anniversary HSV in my garage and I look forward to trying your tune. :tup:

    When I saw the 180SX was on the "eligible cars" list, I figured "why not", and decided to give the car a go. Bought one and bought all of the best modifications for it. I took it for a lap or two without making any tweaks, and this car was fairly stable (granted that's because of the racing slicks).

    Golding is pretty out of the question when it comes to this car, but it definitely will get at least a bronze time (got 1:29 myself). Maybe with a few tweaks and a more capable guy behind the wheel and this could silver the event.

    @OzzyOzborne quick question. After you set the transmission ratios, what did you set Final Gear to?

    Here is my gold tune for this GT500 event

    Nissan GT-R GT500 Stealth Model

    Link here

    The only change I made to the tune linked above was camber. Change camber on front and rear to 0.0

    15th Anniversary HSV-010 (my namesake, yay) for this. Just scraped together a rough setup, doesn't handle terribly, got quite comfortable and can get into the 1:17's. If I can get into the 16's, I'm happy.

    Well. The good news is, I got Gold on my very first lap on Laguna Seca. The bad news is, it was only by a hair and after 3 more laps my time is only down to a 1:22.768. I say "bad news" because I felt that I ran pretty decent laps with my Honda HSV-010 GT 15th Anniversary Edition. Hmmm...Usually I'll know where I'm losing time but apparently I'm losing it everywhere on this lap! Time to go watch some replays from The Aliens(TM). :banghead::bowdown::dunce:

    I'm currently trying a few different setups, a slightly twitchy medium/hard setup works quite well. I'll have it up once I'm finished if you'd like it.

    Down to a 17.7.

    My goal is to at least silver this event with the 180SX. After an oil change and added rigidity, I went and found a tune to base a few tweaks on. This tune by @Onboy123 of Clueless, Over The Hill Outlaws, improved the car's maneuverability and straight-line acceleration considerably. (Doubt those guys would've thought that their tune would be used for a seasonal like this, huh? It's definitely a solid tune though.)

    My newest time with the 180 is 1:26.538. If I can just optimize my lines and control my throttle perfectly, I bet this thing can beat the silver time. I know this is a "why bother" kind of scenario, what with people trouncing gold with their HSVs, but still, this little challenge has been pretty fun so far. I'll see if I can improve on this tomorrow.

    Got a 1:22.600-ish time with a 15th Anniversary HSV.
    I'm so tempted to try to gold it with that 180SX. Just wow..

    1:17.506, good enough for 20th. Got some more to come out the car, but a 16 is looking a struggle. I'm presuming the fastest guys have turbos installed, so a lot of pace will come from that...
