Finally recorded my replay of my Nurburgring lap. If anyone cares to waste more than 9 minutes.
I'm the fastest of the slowest if i beat my time on the ring can i update it ?
@Pifachu, yes you may.
How come 05XR8's Megane is classed as street car and mine a 'sports car ' when he has 5 more bhp than me?
My mistake, sorry.
Howdy everybody. First off, this is my first "event" on these forums, as I have ran into some free time, bought myself a g27 (to replace my old DFGT), and no longer have a means to do Autocross or HST.
Alas, when I was googling to see if there were some GT6 leagues out there I ran across this specific topic, which spurred me to read into the WRS, which prompted me to submit a registry qualification, which then spawned me to actually do some of these fun TT's like this one to see how it is!
So, here goes:
2008 Mazda 3, 2.3L
Wheels: Some cheap MB Weapons, 17x7
Tires: Dunlop Direzza Z1 Star Spec 225/45-17
Other Mods that affect GT6 settings:
Mazdaspeed3 Exhaust (no CAT)
TEIN SuperStreet coilovers with EDFC
Cobb Rear Anti-roll bar
Gran Turismo 6:
Car: Mazda Axela 23S '03
Tires: Sport Medium
Weight: Adjusted to reflect Sedan's weight
Power: Lowered to reflect ~170hp, measured from my butt dyno
Other notable Mods:
Fully Adjustable Suspension (Adjusted to actual specs, with anti-roll bars guestimated)
GT Arena Times (only ran 5):
Nordschleife Time (ran a tour lap to remember the course, then 1 timed):
that's a fast time for 170hp, great driving! You definitely beat me...
And welcome to GTP online racing I'll see you in WRS sometime, too.
I am going to have to try this.. will do both cars and edit post with times tomorrow
Edit - Run Times added
****Daily Driver - 98 Subaru Impreza Outback 2.5L non tubo - bone stock
Hard Highway Tires = worse than comfort hard
187k Miles = 50% power
Have junk inside and its not the WRX = 50KG Ballast
All assists off except ABS =1
GT Arena - Layout A -Forward
Nurburg Nordschleife -
****Race Car- (not really - it is a Class C junker LeMons Car) 1978ish Triumph Spitfire 1500 (see blog in signature for proof.. .like anyone would lie about it)
--Motor California smog 1500 7.5:1 compression
slightly decked head brings it to 8:1 compression
Swapped mechanical radiator fan for electric
Webber DGV carb
Multiple endurance race wear & tear
Game = Close to the stock England spec motor that had 9:1 compression and dual carbs (guessing this is the car in the game) So 90% power
Stripped with full roll cage & fuel cell
Game = weight reduction 2, window lighten, & stiffening
Cut front springs
Spacers to increase front camber
lowering block between the diff and transverse leaf spring = more camber and lower
Koni shocks all the way around
Game = Racing soft
Fronts Mayrun MR800 175/70-R13 320AA (meh.. ok performance summer tires)
Rears Direzza Sport Z1 Star Specs 185/60-R14 (meh were good tires but are getting old)
Game = Sports Hard
All assists off
GT Arena - Layout A -Forward -This was fun! Car felt close, I am sure if I used the fully adjustable and got it closer to real car it would feel a bit better, but I am not sure our exact camber and toe settings, nor what we have the compression on the Koni shocks set to.
Nurburg Nordschleife - Missed a few key points for momentum may try again
We have a 2006 Mustang GT convertible. Which one would you recommend? The 2005 or 2007? Also, it has no mods, so this should be interesting.
2007, Because it's a premium. It looks better.
Because it's a convertible, it's a bit heavier (add 100 kg. Ballast) and the weight is as far back towards the rear as possible. The GT6 Mustangs have incorrect weight distribution.
I hope this isn't rehashing a resolved issue, I'm sneakin a couple minutes from work so in-depth research isn't possible.
Anyway, my question; I USED to drive an Evo VII, sold it a couple years ago and now I drive a '97 Civic Coupe.
Do I need to run my current ride or would I be able to use my Evo?
Thanx in advance for the reply/feedback.
Sense in simplicity. Cheers!
Well it may be rather hard for me to be able to post a lap time.. Saying my only mode of transport at the moment is a Vauxhall Combo from work.. Although I am looking at buying a new car soon!
Would a Corsa count (as the Combo is based on the Corsa?)
EDIT: Or can I drive an old car I owned (Peugeot 206)?
Ok so GT6 doesn't have my car IRL but they have something close so I used it. I'll let whoever decide if it counts.
2007 VW Passat 2.0T FSI
APR Stage 2+ ecu software
3" turbo back exhaust
Crap ton of other mods lightweight pulleys, bov, ect...
Dunlop ultra high performance summer tires
GT6 car (closest car that would hit weight and tq numbers)
2010 VW scirocco r
Weight added to meet 1516kg
Ballast added to correct weight distribution
fully custom suspension ride height lowered only
Performance parts added to make 300hp 338tq
Sports mediums tires
All aids off abs1
Gt arena 30.258
Total time 8.14.328
A 300 hp Passat? That's awesome and unexpected!
If I had a spare 10k I could get it to 450ish
To the front wheels?
Yeah buddy wheelspin in 5th
@vdubguy88, you're leading in the 220-500 hp class.
Can't last long 300hp fwd luxury sedan... As much as I like it it just doesn't seem right
Some pics from last summer
The Scirocco is probably just glitched,. In GT5 it was really, really fast. Not necessarily Corvette-beating fast, but somewhat...
Maybe a bit but even the 05 gti corners crazy fast for a 60/40 fwd. I just redid the run with the gti and it was only 3 seconds off which was probably driver error
I'm surprised by your lap time, but congrats.
Ok so I got really bored today so I made a few other cars if they don't count whatever I was just really bored and I like the concept of building your car in gt6.
First up my first car, the all mighty 95 mercury villager minivan
Renault avantime '02
Power dropped to 157hp
Weight added to 1810
Comfort soft tires
Rest bone stock
Gt arena 34.486
My parents 08 rav4
Mazda mx5 crossport '05
Power matched 269hp
Weight added 1667kg
Comfort soft tires
And finally my sisters 04 Mazda 3
Gt6 car Mazda axela 23s '03
Power lowered to 160hp
Weight added to 1282kg
Sports hard tires
I was very curious about how that car could run so slow so I replicated your car 460hp rest stock on sports hards and gave it a go. I averaged the same arena time of 31.5ish but on the ring I hit 7:25.075 on the first lap. So there is definitely room for improvement
Well I may have dethroned the Sports Car category king, @vdubguy88
So I have a Saturn Sky Redline:
As this car is not in the game, I used the Solstice Coupe Concept '02 (in real life the Solstice and Sky share the same GM Kappa platform).
(IRL) Saturn Sky Redline
-24psi, stock K04 turbo, tune
-EBC drilled/slotted rotors, Hawk HPS pads & stainless lines
-DDM tunnel brace, Werks rear frame brace
-Adjustable collars on stock Bilstein coilovers
-Z0K springs and swaybars f&r
-Solo high flow cat
-Magnaflow 3" catback
-Enkei PF01 18x8
-Continental DW all around
(GT6) Solstice Coupe Concept '02
-Racing Suspension: Hard
-Full customize transmission matched to RL gear ratios (only using 5 of 6 gears though as the Sky is a 5spd)
-Stage 1 Engine Tuning
-Supercharger (no turbo option )
-Added 40kg ballast to match real car weight (1358kg / 2995lb)
-369hp/368ftlb (horsepower is about right, but in real life my car should make considerably more torque than hp)
-Sports hard as per OP.
Was able to hit a 7:40.462 on the Nürburgring and a best lap of 30.683 on GT Arena, for a combined time of 8:11.145.
Just ordered a new intercooler yesterday so when I get around to putting it on ill give this another go with my extra 10-15hp and see what happens. Oh btw if I go out to my car and take out the spare tire and subs could I lower my weight for the run by 46kg
IRL Porsche 2000 996 Carrera
RWD, 6spd manual
Several GTP's (@Hyper-Dan, @Duke of Pendle) have seen the car and I gave @Sureboss a lift to the Northern Karting event in it a few years back (he saw 150mph a few times )
Otelle by-pass exhaust
MPS 2 tyres
GT6 RUF RGT
Detuned to 300bhp
Weight left stock for the sake of 10kg - my car is slightly lighter
Sports hard tyres
GT Arena 30.071
Personally, I think the tyre classifications for this 'event' are off.
IME, sports hard tyres have far too much grip for a road tyre... A stock 996 GT3 mk1 in the hands of Walter Rhorl managed just under 8 mins at the 'Ring, with 360bhp and road tyres, so running 30s faster than that with 60bhp less is a bit silly, as is @vdubguy88 running 7:44 in a 1500kg Passat (nice looking car BTW... very clean )
MPS2's are one of the best road tyres you can buy, and are at best a CS tyre in GT6.
SH tyres should be the very best quality road legal track day tyre, such as a MPS Cup or a Pirelli Corsa.
SM wouldn't be legal on the road in most countries.
