    How come 05XR8's Megane is classed as street car and mine a 'sports car ' when he has 5 more bhp than me?

    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:
    Real Life:
    [​IMG]

    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:
    Mazdaspeed CAI
    Mazdaspeed3 Exhaust (no CAT)
    TEIN SuperStreet coilovers with EDFC
    Cobb Rear Anti-roll bar

    Gran Turismo 6: Gran Turismo Arena (Layout A).jpg Nürburgring Nordschleife.jpg
    Car:
    Mazda Axela 23S '03
    TCS: Off
    ABS: 1
    Tires: Sport Medium
    Wheels: Gt07
    Weight: Adjusted to reflect Sedan's weight
    Power: Lowered to reflect ~170hp, measured from my butt dyno
    Other notable Mods:
    Sports Exhaust
    Intake Tuning
    Fully Adjustable Suspension (Adjusted to actual specs, with anti-roll bars guestimated)

    GT Arena Times (only ran 5):
    32.521
    33.272
    32.490
    31.753
    31.241

    Nordschleife Time
    (ran a tour lap to remember the course, then 1 timed):
    8:38.667

    Total: 9:09.908

    :eek: 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. :D

    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.

    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! :p

    Would a Corsa count (as the Combo is based on the Corsa?)

    EDIT: Or can I drive an old car I owned (Peugeot 206)?

    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 :dunce:

    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 :p

    So I have a Saturn Sky Redline:

    [​IMG]

    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
    -E85/91 mix
    -K&N CAI
    -EBC drilled/slotted rotors, Hawk HPS pads & stainless lines
    -Werks intercooler
    -Howe radiator
    -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
    -Racing Brakes
    -Full customize transmission matched to RL gear ratios (only using 5 of 6 gears though as the Sky is a 5spd)
    -LSD
    -Stage 1 Engine Tuning
    -Sports Computer
    -Sports Exhaust
    -Supercharger (no turbo option :indiff:)
    -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 :D

    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 :D)
    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
    Nurburgring 7:28.953
    Total 7:59.034


    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 :lol: (nice looking car BTW... very clean :tup:)

    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.
