    6:17 is flying! Nice. :tup:

    6:53 in the GT-R with a spin. Just warming up. Few lunch beers and l'll try to to match the :48 in the HSV. The GT-R must be a long wheelbase car? It's planted like a tank.

    Edit :51 in GT-R

    I want to try the GT-R, but not until I ultimately fail in the HSV, the GT-R is planted in my experience, but I can really feel the weight (it wants to leave the track). But it's really good on the rumble strips.

    And now for some bad news.
    <----Fail. Three times....12th.
    Yup. The Expert Level Challenges are indeed for experts. I shall go now in the corner to sulk.

    On the brighter side, I did have a blast on the Beginner Level GT300 and the Intermediate Level European Hot Hatch Challenges and made some millions and got some nice presents so my attempts at the Seasonals this rounds was well worth it. Hip Hip....

    Today I experienced how bad the rubber banding is. Yesterday I won twice with overall times around 7:13 with only a second or so lead. I put @coryclifford 's tune on the HSV, got a 6:59xx time and was 3rd, 11 seconds behind. I was behind less than 8 seconds at the carussel when the leaders just took off.

    Using my trusty HSV base model and I've done 8 races and its 2nd everytime, I'm about 10 seconds behind the leader by the time i get to the carousel. Even tried the coryclifford tune myself with no luck. The rubber banding on this is a ridiculous as well. I got past the leader once in my 7th attempt, at the Pflanzgarton and the 350Z got past straight away and darts off into the distance and i was 6.4 seconds behind, so I'm settling for 2nd.

    Reset Gearbox to Standard. First Step: Max Speed to 240 km/h (don't touch that now) then the Final Gear to 3100.

    If you're not in 4th by the carousel, you might as well settle for second. I didn't have any rubberband issues, but I didn't touch anybody from 4th to first as I passed them (tough to do, I know.) I passed the leader on that last hard right before the loooooooooooooong straight heading towards the finish, but cleared him by a couple of feet, and there was no rubberband effect, I was actually pulling away.

    Bit of a weird event with the AI, they're a pain to overtake because they weave around on the straights rather than sticking to the racing line, it usually ends up costing you a lot of time. I ran a 6:35 on my first try with the Lexus at stock PP and with some traffic holding me up, clean lap would probably be around 6:30 but it still wouldn't have been quick enough to beat that field. Changed to the GT-R, got a new field of cars and won by 7 seconds without really trying. I'm not a fan of tuning the race cars past where they should be in real life so I would expect if you just turbo something up to 600PP it'll be pretty easy to win, especially if you get the slow field of opponents.

    Do the power adjustments, go to transmission, reset to default, put slider to 149 (240), then final to 3.100

    Thanks to @coryclifford I have achieved a Silver 5 sec. behind the leading Nismo Z. That is a first for me ever since GT1. The 'Ring has always intimidated me, but with the @coryclifford tunes I've done better than I ever have. I feel a win just need to find the right lineup. My total overall times have been 6:48-7:01 so I need another 5-8 sec. for a win. This past TT has really helped me in my confidence but it's the tunes that are really the key to my continued success. I am really tired of the battering I've been getting from the NSX's. The AI in this race are the worst I've come across. I've been beat and banged on, been spun out several times. Has anyone else had this experience?

    Well after many attemps, finally won. I used the Petronas TOM'S SC430 '08 with @GhostRider65 tune for this car with some modifications:
    - Downforce to max (400/650)
    - Mid Turbo without stage 3 modification (only turbo)
    - No ballast
    Therefore the specs are:
    - 600 pp
    - 565 HP
    - 1100 kg
    - 1.94 kg/HP
    I catch Gutierrez in the penultimate corner making a time of 6:43:532
    Even so i need to adjuste the gearbox because in the final part of big straight of 2 km i lose 2/3 km/h but in the rest of circuit goes pretty fast

    No worries mate, just about to fire up the PS3.
    It is labelled, MC HAMI+, which means it is a MC HAMI tune which I have changed a bit over time.
    This is for the HSV-010 GT Base Model '12.

    PP 600, power 566bhp. Power limiter 86.6.

    Engine tuning stage 3 .... Low RPM turbo.

    No added ballast. Down force F 400 ... R 600.

    LSD 13-11-6.

    Gears (can't tell you how to go about it, only what they are) I do think they could do with some expert att'n though.
    Max Speed 290
    1-3840
    2-2618
    3-1926
    4-1485
    5-1199
    6-1015
    Fg-3892

    70 - 70
    11.21 - 13.01
    1 -- 1
    1 -- 1
    7 -- 7
    0 -- 0
    0.05 -- -0.17

    Let us know what you think as I'm always interested in improvement.

    I done that now, I had done final gear 1st then done Max speed. The car is much quicker now doing nearly 300kmh on straight. I got to practice on Nurburgring a lot as it's not my favourite track. Thanks for help thou

    Thanks for that, definitely improved my time, car is MUCH faster. However, it was really loose in the back (for my driving style), so I made a few tweaks to the diff, and down-force.

    Sounds like you need to get thru some QM's and acquire some cash/credits. Even getting last is 200,000 in many cases.
