    Hopefully!

    That track would need no long straights though. On the Nordschleife there is not a single muscle car to beat the classic JDMs.

    Fairly amazing car. I just did a 7'40" on the 'Ring with 440hp and 1,370kg. Did over the Gr.4 class.

    See what happens now. The server is UK based and I joined from Canada. Maybe that slowed it down a tad? Just a theory

    Great racing tonight! Apologies for my somewhat sloppy driving tonight. I just finished an 8 hour shift in a furniture warehouse, so I was pretty much exhausted. That said, the Toyota was certainly helped me out tonight, it’s was an extremely forgiving car and let me get away with a few mistakes that I probably shouldn’t have gotten away with.

    I was pleasantly surprised how much I enjoyed the Crown. It made for some good racing. I tried to capture the best moments from the races in the attached videos.

    GTS Nordschleife hot lap STOCK Toyota Crown Athelete G '13: 08.05.959
    Yep, feels heavy. But does also feel good. Has good brakes and a great driving feel. Can be a tad slidy and oversteery, but in a good way. Great car.


    Verdict: Neutral

    Did a 07.15.057 with it on the Nordschleife. I mean you can really feel its weight, especially under braking, but boy does this thing go! In a straight line it is one of the fastest cars I have tested yet, even slightly faster, than the 650S I believe. Through the corners it's really faster than it should be. Great, great car actually, I'm very positively surprised!



    Verdict: almost sleeper

    Hmmm, going to have to grind some money to get this one. I actually don’t think I’ve ever driven one before, in either GT Sport or GT6. Looking forward to giving it a go

    Alternatively, the GR.1 race at Monza or the Red Bulls at Le Mans are good money makers, two of the best in fact, but they do require a Gr1 car or a Red Bull X2014 (obviously:p).

    If I don’t end up making the money I need, maybe I can dress up an Aston Martin DB-11 and pretend it’s a One-77... I already have a Peugeot RCZ that’s dressed up to look like a Ferrari LaFerrari, almost no one notices

    i think its only $1.3 mil. - I say that but like many of you guys, I didnt buy this car even though its been in since day one. I also think its one of the ugliest Aston Martins ever.

    Its a n700 car? Mine is 1,385kg and 636hp and its fine like that. Even that you feel its weight.

    I chose this metallic orange as its the most dated colour scheme ever. I think the colour was really out of fashion when this thing was new.

    Sideline gang here myself too. Fibre-optic internet cables are coming to my area soon so I’m holding out for that by sticking with my current router (with the insane latency and everything) until I can make the switch over.

    Also some people have been poking the corpse of Duel of the Week and if that interests you, go over and read up about that if you want. If it means getting the community back in that thread I’m all for it.
