    Bare in mind I got gt6 at christmas, My last gt game was gt3.

    It was the first time i had even seen this course when I did that zonda bathurst seasonal, a baptism of fire. So to get gold a week after getting the game when some longer term gt6 drivers couldn't get gold made me pretty happy, even if it took a lot of attempts. More than any sane person.:banghead:

    This is my first time driving it in full since then. The zonda challenge was way way way harder. So this race feels like a piece of piss in comparrison. So I feel pretty relaxed doing the downhill section :tup:

    Of course there are a ton of corners left to max out.

    Fair enough, depends what car you are using and set up.

    I haven't experienced those issues with the Z4 but I use a ds3. I will try some other cars.

    Try this tune out from a fellow country man of yours, @shaunm80 It got me a 2:01.202 and is quite stable. I only used ABS 1 and slapped on engine tuning stage 3.
    I also altered the final gear to 3270 from it's original 2700.

    Very solid tune.

    I achieved gold by cruising this around, I find this track temperamental so I go easy round it. Easy gold in the Z4 GT3 car with this tune. Also, Try the Audi that LordJCS pointed out, that car is very stable..

    Link for the Z4 is here :)

    Use PP Limiter to meet regulations.

    It depends on me using the snap oversteer to my advantage to go faster, It's just tricky to get it perfect.

    @LordJCS and @shaunm80 Thank you very much gents, I'll give those setups a go shortly, may just be a lack of experience on this circuit that's causing the biggest problems though. Your help is very much appreciated though. :tup:

    Hi guys, I've been playing with SLS since yesterday and now I did 2:00.207. I think there's room for some improvement but in my case not much, I guess. So, if someone is willing to play with SLS, here is my tune. Hope somebody will set better times :)

    Think I ran a 2:06 after restarting multiple times for hitting walls. Not to bad once you figure out the braking point. Used the SLS GT3, stock tuning w/ upgrades fitting below the PP limit.

    Well done JimiPitBull! Well done indeed! First I tried the default tune, made Silver, tried some tweeks of my own and made the Gold but only with a few tenths to spare. Next was the standard for most of we non skilled tuners and put the :tup::tup: Master Praiano's :tup::tup: tune on the car and made 2:02 and change. I was thrilled with that but hoped with better driving and throttle control I could drive a bit quicker lap. Then I stumbled on your terrific / awesome tuning notes!! WOW, now I'm at 1:59.XXX (lower hundredths - can't remember exactly but I'm at 590 or so on the world standings). I know I'll never see the 1:55.76 you ran :bowdown: but das OK with me, at 67 (I'm a proud GEEZER:cheers:) I've just about ran this one as good as I will but wanted to send a note Thanking You for sharing your numbers with us!! We appreciate the help and wish you the best as you charge on into the 10's World Wide Rankings.:cheers: :gtpflag:

    Just a curiosity.....
    Does anyone try these seasonals with a no-tune car?
    I mean, I know you'd need one if you're going for a top time. But I see people relying on tunes right off the bat and for nothing more than a gold.
    I don't mean to be an a$$. But seriously, if you want to be a better driver, do your best to get gold with the mildly stock car. I wouldn't call myself special in any sense. Certainly a far cry from the aliens. But I've yet to not achieve gold with a non tuned car.
    All of them, so far, can be done with basic solid driving practices. Slow in, apex, hard out. Etc, etc.

    Anyway, like I said, not trying to be an a$$. I just think people will find it more satisfying to accomplish something they did by maximizing their own skills.
    I did this weeks Matterhorn in my M3 '04, because thats what I had cued when these seasonals arrived. Total stock. Gold after some short acclimation. Then I looked at the leader board and saw everyone using the 111R, and was like, "Duh, that would have been a whole lot easier!" But I felt really good about having done it in a bone stock "heavy" car.
    Just something to think about. Good luck everyone!
    Cheers!

    There is another fully dedicated thread just for such things in these Time Trials, always very nicely created by @Hastatus :tup:

    Yep and it's fun!

    And I dare everyone here to try it in the 586pp Audi R8 LMS - Team Oreca '10 totally stock. :mischievous:

    @Champ2014. I start out with a car that has stock PP value. Once I've reached gold, I then add a tune to get those TT lap times down. It can shave 5 or more seconds off that gold time for me. Plus the car usually is much easier to drive making the entire experience better. Racers in the real world do it. Why shouldn't we?

    Racing together with Landorghini78 on his account, racing on a tune of Praiano with a few differences in traction control and downforce. Landorghini set a time of 1.56,45 place 65 until now. Thnx Praiano!!

    Well, I know what you mean. I did gold (2:06.xxx) with stock Z4 but on the other hand every stock race car (I think plenty, at least) comes with the same LSD setup. The same as you would buy a FC LSD to any other street car. So, it would be fun to try doing events with stock cars only if I'm sure it really is stock and it is setup like in real world. That's my opinion, though.

    Some seasonals are in stock cars.

    A stock car wont make you a better driver. If tuning the car makes it drive or feel better, then you will probably run more laps. Practice makes you a better driver.
