    Kinda surprised at the results I got with the Mazda RX-7 Spirit R Type A '02. I put flat floors on it and did minimal tuning to it, and it handled great and performed really well. I'm sure someone can go much, much faster than my times, if they can drive it without the flat floors.

    How right you are. Very surprising what a nice drive it is, and quite good grip on the SH tires with a flat floor! I would have gotten an easy win if not for the jerk J. Aguirre and his buddy S. Padilla, doing the usual ram and run stuff in their matching white Ford GT's.

    Hellow everyone

    Audi R8 d.2 FSI quattro 09; this is the car for me. I tried with Mclaren MP4, Pagani, and others ... but nothing.

    The ZZII is the easiest to win with so far it seems to me. I won by over 15 seconds, wasn't very exciting.

    That AI is pretty crazy here, And that's a good thing because it keep you sharp. That ^%^&* don't brake in that horror turn. Funny.

    Nissan R390 GT1. PP600. 540HP/1,092kg. There is no need to tune this car other than parts as it had no understeer whatsoever and in fact it was prone to a bit of oversteer which is perfect for this track. The other drivers in this race were plum crazy. They were not in the same race that I was in that is for sure and there was no intensity in their driving during the race. I have never seen anything like this since I have been driving in GT. Just to show you I passed for the lead over the TVR Cerbera at the beginning of lap 4 at the Hairpin so when I got to the start finish line I thought the race was over until I looked up at the leader board and found out that I still had one more lap to the win, To put it bluntly I was in total shock as I had begun to slow down at what I thought was the checkered flag. P1 TVR Cerbera. P2 MacLaren F1. P3. Enzo Ferrari. Fast lap2:07.958. Winning margin 00.921. The only challenge came from the Pagani Zonda C12S that started in P7 after I took the lead on lap 4.That driver did everything to dropkick me off the track for the last lap and half of the race to the checkered flag.

    I was finally able to win this, I used @fordlaser777 tune for the S206 and was able to overtake the mclaren f1 on the final lap at the hairpin turn and keep the lead, I finished with a time of 11:10.385 the f1 finished with a 11:13.777. Another car that is good here is the Ktm X-bow with @Jeje6410's tune.


    I have been rammed everywhere on this track. :irked: :lol:

    No kidding! Degner and Spoon curves are bad for this as well as that hairpin and the bustop. Too bad that it takes a lot of the fun out of this event. But yes I agree, with @fordlaser777 it's quite rewarding to move over and watch them fly off into the sand.

    I found another place to be rammed lol, gave them a touch up in the RX7 . The McLaren and I had a battle over the last quarter lap passed each other 3 times in the last 3 corners then I outbraked myself at the chicane just caught it and we had a drag to the finish line. He came up beside me and belted me so I returned serve and we went across the line completely sideways with him off the track and 3rd trying to go between us. I won by .062 seconds and loved it.:tup:

    When you are approaching the corners and you got the AI behind you just go off the driving and that is the best thing you can do, the same goes in the straight. The worse corner is the hairpin where the AI are behind you just don't be in the driving line on that corner.

    I tried this seasonal last week, and found it didn't go on the first try. After a week messing around in GT4 and a new (Exeter) setup on my NSX-R prototype road car, it fell on my first try. Rabbit was the Cerbera.

    Another car with flat floors and minimal tuning that can win. Not as fast or as easy to drive as the RX-7, but still enjoyable to throw around Suzuka.

    Nice, I was thinking about that one or the Scirocco.

    I tried 3 times with the Camaro. I had so much trouble with the AI. I was about to pass the lead car braking for the busstop when a Hyuara rammed me into the barriers. I gave up.

    Makes you wonder of Kaz is doing one of those Nelson Muntz "Ha-Ha"'s.

    I was so lucky at last lap. I passed Huyara at Degner and he went off track at the Hairpin, then I passed the leader at 130R and he missed the last chicane so I finished in safety :D

    Struggled with the X-Bow, and only just made a 2nd. Had a few laps in the RX-7 Spirit R and couldn't get it handling the way I wanted, so jumped into the ZZII. Managed gold after 4 attempts (had to tweak the tuning and my driving to suit the event conditions) and snuck past the Huayra at the final chicane for the win. Glad that's over!!

    I took the FXX out. Same car as what's being used for the Ascari seasonal. Unfairly fast here. And needed a slight LSD adjustment. Drove a lot. Went back to Ascari and dropped a decent chunk of time. Thanks Suzuka! :D:tup:

    Speaking of Ferrari's.... This seasonal is made for Ferrari's! I have won with the 84 GTO, California, FXX, Enzo, 430 Scuderia and the 365 GTB4. I think I'm done with this seasonal now.

    Some pretty AWFUL driving on the last lap and I can't get the right balance with the brakes. The car has a lot of potential to go much faster than mine time in the hands of a good driver who is using a good tune.

    One last thing.... I know nearly all of us got frustrated at this seasonal for the horrendous disparity in the physics between the AI and us humans.... So here is a picture of how I took my frustrations out on the AI! :lol:

    Geez, a bit of road rage there, don't mess with this dude!!:bowdown::D Edit. Ps I had a go in the Camaro and after two 2nds through my mistakes I had a fiddle with the suspension and gearbox and in the third hit the lead in the middle of the third lap. I finished in 11.07 best lap 2.8.3xx. It actually turned out pretty good.:cheers:

    So, umm, I tried the Reventon last night. Yikes, what a handful! Constant drift mode when the power is down!! Anyone tried (and won) with this beast??

    That one's on my to-do list. I got a moderately difficult wins in the Gallardo and the Golf VI R10. I had to work on the gearing in the Golf to get it competitve as it maxes out at 564pp with flat floor. It was more fun, too.

    Edit 9/15 I did a basic tune for the Reventon and got a win. I wimped out with TC 1, but embraced the drift nature of the beast and pretty much did the whole race with massive powerslides. I got a win with an overall time of 11:00.7xx. Fast laps were in the 2:07-2:08 range. I didn't even add a transmission.

    I've held off posting this because I have so far not been able to get my camera co-operate with windows 10 in order to post the pic, but I'll keep trying. I did save the replay but thats not uploading either.

    Stock 571 PP Ford GT '05 is sweet!

    And strangely, the '06 is not sweet.

    I tried either the '05 or the '06 (Can't remember) and couldn't get it to turn in the corners. What problem did you have with the '06, compared to the '05? The Ford GT Concept was fairly easy for me to tune and win with.
