    The track is hard itself. So just practice over and over...and over again

    Bought the Calsonic GT-R '08, ran 5 times, best finish was 6th, 21 secs behind the leader. I'm a relative novice at the Ring, so I'll keep running it til I get the hang of it a bit better. Any hints on a tune? I've tried reducing rear camber, toe, downforce, and adjusting the top end gears but I'm still topping out at 288kph without a tow...

    A couple of nice pics from one of my attempts last night:

    Is that in this thread somewhere? All I see is his HSV tune. I'm looking for a GT-R tune...

    This non-racecar TT helped a lot for getting used to the track... nevertheless your much more quicker in the GT500 especially through corners.

    First i gave a shot to my Z GT500 something. beautifull car but not fast enough but very stable (may there be a causality ... ;) ).
    next i bought a HSV Basemodel for my 15th. Anniversary is not accepted. On the first try i made something about a 7.10 or .15.
    After some tunes i came down to a 7.01 but still "only" second. maybe bad luck with the field a had.
    some other trys tonight will bring first place with the HSV , i'm sure.

    Yes, learning the 'Ring is all important and will benefit you in the future for sure. However your top speed on the last straight is fine as far as I can tell. I'm only getting about that up until the bridge but by then I'm miles in front of second place.
    I think I'll try some other cars for comparison to the HSV. And you can Google a tune for nearly any car although Nowcontrol has loaded a bunch of tuners the first page. Stick with it, it's a great track, one where I learned a lot about cornering years ago. Good luck.

    With full downforce, yes. But with a really fast tune for hotlapping it takes some time to get used to the insane rotation.

    My run with the GT-R. Pardon me for the potato quality.





    By the way, I have a custom bgm playing during the race, in case you notice it. :sly:

    Thanks. But as far as I'm concerned, everyone is right about using the HSV.

    Simply a monster. I saved a replay of its run. I'll upload it on request.

    Another impressive lap! I can't run this track without at least one little spill where I'm fighting the car back onto the road after catching a rear wheel on the grass...

    Just wait for an opening. Trust me, you have plenty of time to catch the leader.

    Man, something is wrong here, I can't bust 6:58, even though I like the car, and the track! I've probably run it 10 times, but no luck. I'm also just as fast in the Supra as I am in the HSV....with a guessing tune. WTH???? Obviously more grinding is in order.

    Used the HSV and was at 7:12 in second with the winner finishing in 7:05. Only ran one clean lap after a couple restarts from early offs getting used to the car.

    I may need to soften the suspension a little.

    That is for the HSV, not the GT-R. I started with the GT-R and did a 6:58 pretty easily.

    GT-R tune
    Suspension
    60/60
    12.13/12.13
    3/3
    3/3
    4/4
    0/0
    0/0
    Brakes 5/5
    LSD 10/10/5
    High RPM turbo
    Power at 86.3%
    Downforce 312/557
    Reset transmission
    124 mph
    2.200 final gear

    Not a particularly polished tune but easy to drive. You can raise it a bit if it's too bumpy or you like hitting the curbs.

    I love where the exhausts exit on this car. :tup:

    Yeah. But I should be just a few seconds behind Cory on this track I think. And he runs a 6:48. Grrrr. lol 10 seconds is unacceptable! No need for me to really push it though, he'll just bust out a 6:35 and kill me with it. I'm happier now. lol
