no worries they will be finished shortly before i leave home for the pub
What, GT5P tuner fad has died already? tsk tsk.. you guys need to start thinking outside the box..
dimplz doesn't have GT5, only I do, and I'm still tuning there. (Waits for weekend to do some real tuning, not enough time in week).
In the next day or two I'll review the Evo and edit it onto here; did you check the answer on the weight reduction? none?
Bloody sick car by the way. It just does whatever you want it to; slides out, stabilises, maintains, exits. Bewdiful. And acceleration is good, but maybe needs 1 or 2 TCS.
The Evo is dimplz's car, I don't know when he'll be here to answer your questions.
im at work and on here....shhh dont tell the boss....the evo full weight reduction and the TC isnt needed otherwise the fun wont happen =P
btw the toyota wannabes arent quite finished due to school commitments
Evo VIII review for Aussie Tuners
I really like this tune, despite the fact that I don’t really like the car. The Evo VI and IV are fun to drive but the Evo VIII is rather underwhelming in comparison. I was pleasantly surprised with this tune. It seems twitchy to begin with, but with a bit of practice that twitchinesss simply allows some really late and precise braking.
The one problem I did have with the car was instability under high-speed braking, and regaining control if it does flip out. Also, the top speed could have been higher, not that I really wanted much more speed with my high-speed braking problems, but I’m sure it could have done with another 10-15 mph. With some practice I was able to turn in some really good times with this tune, and it beats the living crap out of my previous tune. The only other problem (if you could call it that) I had with the car is that it takes a bit of time and attention-span to really push it hard both into and out of corners. Once this is learned the car rides beautifully.
I put about 80 miles on the car before realising that I was in practice mode and could not gauge tyre wear. It seems like a tune that would churn through the rubber. I’m sure to be using this car quite often, so would you recommend any changes for a R1 or R2 setup?
I initially ran the car a few times without the weight reduction, and got it to behave completely differently. With the extra weight and sports tyres (and some suspension alterations that I forgot to write down) the car seemed to blur the line between a grip and drift tune. This version is obviously slower to drive than the original one but I found it an equally entertaining ride, happy to initiate drift/long powerslides and really controllable with good exit speed
Also, you were right about the TCS, I think it was confusion with notes for another car, cause it was set at 0 when I checked today.
thanks for the review...and i hear there is a car waiting to be tuned for you...
that evo you drove was oringnally built on tsukaba as you could probably of told by the handling...then adapted to run at Grand Valley Raceway
I just want to thank all the fellow tuners here on GT4 forums that helped me become the tuner I am today from since I was just starting.
And may I say, I look forward to future endeavours in GT5.
Wanted to post this as well, sorry I can't give you specs on all the cars, only the tyres they had. It was my record of all the lap times I ever did. Some were not practised with much, so some are a bit off their potential pace.

No worries mate, I think I might try them out too. They sound interesting
Can't you see the tumbleweeds? Nobody's posted here in 5 months, I don't know if dimplz even comes here any more.
hehe... oh wow, I really should have checked the post dates...
Hey stop it Leo! There's been some truly hilarious gravedigging going on lately. Some on the GT4 section are absolute masterpieces: completely off-topic, poorly written and about three years out of date. Call me a nerd, but I avidly follow these threads, sometimes just to listen to the deafening silence that tends to accompany them, and sometimes to see the responses of the newbies who think they are responding to a recent and relevant question. Great pic though, now have that one saved
you're welcome. And I think that Dimplz might not return.. He has found a girl and I guess that he has a life now.. scary thought, isn't it..
What are girls?
Those things you normally throw rocks at.
*Looks up terms "girls" and "life" in dictionary.*
lol. *joins in
Girls- Plural of girl, a female child or young person.
Hey, I didn't know there were female humans! Learn something new every day.
Life- The condition which distinguishes animals and plants from inorganic objects and dead organisms.
Poor dimplz! Sounds like he has some sort of condition, that can't be healthy!
agreed.. I know! let's get him so drunk that the girl will have a severe counter reaction and ditch him! then he won't have life anymore and can get his lousy arse back here! I know, I'm genious.
Oh the irony, you say you're genius but spelt it wrong. Well look, if we don't do something for dimplz this "condition" known as life could get worse by the day.
let's see you typing with your mouth full of delicious food while licking your fingers.
Do it all the time. I also play PS Home while eating if the food isn't too messy.
I'm starting to figure out why the girls avoid you..
Yeah, somebody told them all I have been known to talk to you. J/K mate.
well, atleast your car loves you.
And I my car.
Why do you need to keep this thread alive any longer with non-sense posts?
