    I didn't even know the layout before today, so don't know if i love it already ;)

    Need more laps to feel comfortable, but started the journey winning with a Stock Enzo (SH tires, Power @ 75.1%), using TC2 and ABS1 as driving aids.

    Going down the PP list later, trying to win with stock settings if possible.

    Have fun with this one :cheers:

    The 430 Scuderia '07, in my opinion the best handling Ferrari in this game.

    Agreed, but the Enzo is ultimately faster.

    I looked at the old thread because I was thinking I did this before with all the Ferraris still stock. Found my list:

    Stock California = fun
    Stock Dino = awesome
    Stock Enzo = easy
    Stock F40 = exciting
    Stock F430 = easy
    Stock GTO = fun
    Stock SP1 = easy
    Stock 250 = very cool
    Stock 365 = meh
    Stock 430 = fun
    Stock 458 = easy
    Stock 512 = very cool
    Stock 599 = not bad

    Thank you @coryclifford for posting these cars. Ascari is a :banghead: tough track for me so having your list will help me a lot. I was thinking of using the Dino first so I'm really glad to see your comments. Thanks again.:tup::cheers:

    Also many thanks to @nowcontrol for keeping these posts.:tup::tup::tup::tup:

    I saw this on the old thread, nicely done! :tup:

    Since you did it on SS-tires and this time around only SM-tires (or lower) are allowed, you should do it again - if you have spare time apart from the Nurburgring - maybe completely stock this time? :cheers:

    Edit:
    @Racin510s why not go through the list by PP, from top to bottom?
    BTW, hope you're doing well my friend! :cheers:

    Thank you @AlexAlien for the suggestion and the greeting:tup:. All's well on my end and hope yours is too. I'm looking forward to chasing your ghost line my friend. I probably won't get to these until tomorrow because I just spent the last 2 hours racing with the Geezer Club. Since my wheel broke using the DS3 for 2 hours had my hands starting to cramp. May you have a good and fast run at this one.:cheers:

    Edit: @UltimateLurker you won by 36 seconds oh my goodness:bowdown:. I'll be doing good just if I can gold this one.

    Fifth try. 100% stock Dino on stock SH tires. No blocking, no contact anywhere. One of the game's greatest cars. They slow down in a couple spots they don't need to, and that's always been a complaint of mine about Ascari. Never understood that. But that's how a 413pp car can beat 550pp (I wonder where the Enzo is at because that thing takes off like mad). He was closing in FAAAAAST in the end.

    Did a re-run with the Enzo and you're right, it's a 1 to a 1,5 second a lap faster. And the FXX wasn't allowed which would be faster still.

    The FXX takes a serious power cut to hit 550. It was definitely slower at the recent Nürb 550 pp race than the Enzo was.

    The last straight of the Ring was bonkers, I had other cars that made up 4 seconds in that sector. But in the corners the FXX in my hands was faster than the Enzo.

    Looked in the thread and found this. :lol:

    Few more wins with stock cars on SM tires today:

    Tommykaira ZZII - fastest for me
    Ferrari Enzo - slippery
    Ferrari FXX - fastest down the long straight

    Granted, them tuned could be a whole different story, all I did was cut power and tires, but I'm pretty darn sure I was faster in the Enzo.

    When did your alien abduction take place? I just checked the results from the old stock thread and the lowest PP winner was the 512BB. Even MadMax didn't manage it in the Dino. Kudos, mate.

    Maybe it's when they jammed the G27 wheel up my backside, which replaced a thoroughly worn DFGT? It's definitely more precise, as I can tell by the seat of my pants. There was a joke or pun in there somewhere.

    Been playing Dirt Rally a bit. I was noticing that when I'd drive GT6 again it seemed a bit easier to be sliding around, or have confidence in the sliding around.

    Probably just more beer. Seems most reasonable. :D

    Pardon the double post action but I wanted to make sure. Yep, and even four beers more and four seconds slower, it's doable.

    He got real close this time, but again, the AI brakes at the worst spots, makes no sense. I bumped the side of a guy that slammed the wall and got a five second penalty.

    43 seconds, I posted the wrong time first.

    You can do it. I used Praiano's tune with just a few tweaks that I'll list below.

    1. All weight reduction
    2. Ballast 38kg @ -50
    3. TC-1
    4. 4300 final drive

    You should end up with: 550PP - 69.7% power - 458hp / 482tq - 1119kg - 47/53 weight dist

    In the right hands this tune will easily do 10:45

    And here I was wishing for a race at LeMans at 700PP or a 20 lap race anywhere.

    At least all my Ferrari,s are set at 550pp from the now much missed Nurburgring seasonal.

    I won this one on my son's account with a '06 F430 with a modified '07 F430 tune by @praiano63. I've been playing on his account because essentially was a fresh start without the Mercedes money glitch that was available with the pre-ordered AE GT6. Now that I have him up to 33 million credits I'm headed back to my account to run these 3 new ones.

    Okay here we go again. This was a separate account. This one I won with the California and have no idea where the tune came from. There are only 4 or 5 tuners that I use their tunes. So thank you @shaunm80, @Jeje6410, @GhostRider65, @SW__10 and @praiano63. I had a 4 second lead on the :censored: Enzo on lap 4. Then on lap 5 it was like the AI added nitro, a turbo and a supercharger and dropped 1000 kg and the only thing that saved me is the fact that the AI always slow way down for the corners. As you can see in the picture .810 MOV and 2nd place was 12 seconds behind. IMHO PD needs to get their :censored: together. Yes it's an Expert race but come on, you're already 20-40 seconds behind on lap 1 and they get more PP as well.:mad: So here is to the tuners :cheers::cheers::cheers::cheers::cheers:

    SP1 was too fast at 2:14 to 2:18 laps, but the 2nd place running Enzo had a huge off on lap 4 that 120 degree left, finished 4th. Only need to tune for 155 mph max speed, and for those unfamiliar with the track the chicanes, aren't; just dollar sign them.

    The SP1 with my tune was not nearly as fast...12:23.675. Might have to do some more work on this one...
