    Stock Ferrari 430 Scuderia '07 in 7:59 first try. Cool event that should allow just about every cool MR car out there.

    Stock Lightning Car Rocket in 7:44 first try. Same with NSX LM.

    I am gonna have fun here. Won first time out in a '02 Garaiya with @Jeje6410 tune. I have overlooked this little gem until @ishikawa2501 mentioned the "vanilla" version. As usual can't go wrong with a jeje tune.:tup::tup::tup::tup::tup: 514 PP on a rail! :cheers:

    Thanks a lot my dear friend Barnabas for having tested and used this Autobacs in this race. It's a pleasure for me to read yours comments . Thanks again my dear friend :cheers:

    Édit: is it the Autobacs Garaiya 500PP version with the power limiter at 100% my friend ?

    Oh the vanilla Garaiya is an overlooked gem alright! Havent tries the @Jeje6410 mod yet, but the stock is really a delight to drive. One more thing to the eternal to do list ;)

    I think this is another overlooked gem (unless I'm missing something) The Citroen GT, stock detuned to 490pp, the trick in here was resisting to adjust the gearbox to fully exploit the power downgrade

    In all (un)fairness this car is too much. The road version have insane downforce levels. If I remember correctly it was introduced on GT5 or GT5 prologue and I consider it a "precursor" (or is it predecessor a better word) of the Vision Gran Turismo concept. A dream supercar designed specially for the game.
    If there is anything left to be said about this car, it that you should try the road and race versions, it will be worth it

    Yes my friend it is tune for the 500 PP. Maximum power with all weight reductions yields 514 PP. II just didn't reduce it to 500.

    Italia for the win! A little too generous, no penalties for cutting corners. 1:26 laps needed, and lower the top end as this is not a high speed track, can’t really let this class of cars stretch out.

    Use the Nissan R390 GT1... very very stable platform that feels detuned at 580pp.

    Also you can cut corners.

    Try a stock NSX Type R '02 or Garaiya '02. The NSX easily disposes of the Ford GT40. The Garaiya, not so easy.

    I have always thought that Autumn Ring Reverse was a better flowing track. I did notice there didn't seem to be any penalties simply because I got tired of following the AI GT40. I tried a couple of times to pass on the outside and the car Spirra I was driving just didn't have the grip on the outside so I gave him a touch of the chrome horn and spun him out and then no penalty:confused:. Oh well I don't cut corners anyway, but penalties to me were what made the Expert races. Yes at times the penalties are aggravating especially when the AI takes you out and get a penalty to boot.

    Edit: I will not use the GSX or the NSX LM there too many other nice MR cars to choose from. It's a shame though that you can't run RR cars like the Alpine or the RUFs.

    Edit II: The stock '84 Ferrari GTO prize car is a blast. Sweet exhaust note but it pushes like a dump truck. Fast lap 1:23.584. The Zonda stayed pretty close once I passed him, but never got close enough to worry.

    You can use the RUF 3400S '00, it is an MR drive-train. :tup:

    Wrestling the heavyweight Diablo around here was fun . An early braking point seemed to be the key to a good lap .

    Thanks my friend.:tup: I had one in the race I just ran with the GTO. I didn't have one so I bought a pink one in honor of @WhoosierGirl. I came in 3rd twice with the stock version, first time lost by 8 sec. I think, next time after a full race tranny by 3 sec. the third time with power mods to 530 PP was the win. Kept the same field just added parts bit by bit. Stock suspension, stock LSD, full race tranny w/FG 4.24, 3rd stage engine, exhaust manifold (no cat avail.), stage 3 weight reduction. Fast lap was 1:24.xxx.

    Edit: Those who have run the RUF 3400 stock, are you using manual transmission? I use AT and the stock gearbox is a long throw box. I can see that by being able to shift that this car stock is fully capable of winning. Unfortunately I don't think so with an automatic. Anyone want to prove me wrong is quite alright.:) I miss my DFGT terribly and can't believe the prices of used ones, I saw a G25 on Ebay and they wanted $700 even DFGTs are more than they were new.:cheers:

    So I did and liked it once I learned slow in and fast out, more so than the norm. Last few cars I drove I could really jam the front tires into the apex. The RUF needed some glide action.

    Having loads of fun. This time in a '97 MR-2 GTS. My own tune:nervous:, slip sliding away but manged to beat the GT40 in the last curve before the home straight. 538 PP, 449 HP & 369 ft-lbs of torque, 1039 kg. I had the suspension set waaaaaayyy to stiff. I did more sliding than driving but the race gearbox set to 168 MPH and FG of 4.285 was very fast. I wish I had a capture card. I have never been sideways almost the whole track. By lap 5 I had it sort of figured out, let off the gas you :censored::dunce:. Once I did that my last lap was a 1:23.894. The others ranged from 1:25-1:28

    Edit: Ran this one stock and it was fun, then tuned it and it was more fun. Sweet exhaust MR V-8. Last one for the night. The Zonda was a worthy opponent in this race.I hope everyone is having as much fun as I am.:cheers::cheers:

    @lfm58 I knew you'd be around. The Elise was next on my list.

    3 races, 3 different cars all stock with the exception of full race transmissions. Using AT with long throw gearboxes and high speed final drives just don't work, at least for me they don't using a DS3.As @coryclifford said slow in and and as fast as you can out Since you get 900, 000+ credits with 200 % login bonus, I'm going to use this race to by the Muiria Bertone. now it's time for the Lotuses or Loti :confused: any way many different to chose from.

    No Aids. Tune by me. No penalties. Cockpit race. Fast Lap 1:22.546. Pass for the win on lap 5 over the Ford GT 40 Mark 1 at corner 14 last corner before the start/finish line. Winning margin 01.567. When I got to P3 I noticed that the Zonda running in P2 and the GT40 running in P1 were running faster than the Evora on the straightaway so the only way I was going to win was to pass them in the corners. So I traded some paint with both in the corners for the win.

    I've run 4 Lotuses or Loti.:lol: The Evora 3x, the Elise 111R, The Sport 190 and I think the '96 Elise. Won them all and some were by mere 10ths. None above 550PP., Low lap time in the 111 R 1:20.568. I figured since I have posted so many pictures that it wasn't necessary. If anyone has a question I don't mind running them again with pics for proof. Well on my way to paying the 15 million for the Muiria Bertone. Also had a fun race with the Zonda as the rabbit in the 430 Scuderia. I have not exceed 550 PP. Love this track and the selection of available cars and don't have to run the :censored: GSX. I'll run my stable of Ferrari's next. Up first will be the 458. Already ran the '84 GTO stock, but will run the GTO again with a tune but no higher than 550 PP. Many of these are leftovers from the Ascari race. Still have others to run and well on my way for paying for the Muiria Bertone. Heck since I have might as well and go ahead and run it too. The Muria is the only car I didn't buy at the beginning of the game. I surely hope everyone is having as much fun as I am.:cheers: See Ya'll tomorrow.:tup::gtpflag:

    Edit: still refuse to run the GSX/R or NSX LM prototype. I just run the MR drivetrain search. Yes I use a couple of aids, ABS4 and TCS 4-5 depending on the car. Also Active Steering on Strong but can do away with it if necessary. Have a good night:cheers:
