    Just tinkered with your old NSX-R '02 seasonal tune at 450pp.. Worked like a charm at SSR5. managed a 0:59.847.. Gonna see if i can tweak it a bit.. It's kinda stiff and slidy in the rear..

    A bit of tweaking and i'm down to 0:59.496.

    I make my warm up for overtaking at London and changed to Sierra Ferrari GTO trial but still failed. I tried it careful with no touch (Wall and AI) and as fast as i can with a few Penaltis but can't get enough Points....not easy

    I just flung around London with a detuned FT-1 Graphite and did low 55sec laps... It's a tad too slippery in the rear for my liking, but it's possible to win with it..

    But....

    My main weapon of choice for this London seasonal is a Toyota FT-86 concept '09 with my own tune.. I've been able to pull off mid 53sec laps in that thing...

    Nice.. I don't actually own that car. It seemed a little pricey but is it worth it compared to other cars in that PP bracket?

    It sure is pricey.. I specificaly set out to tune it for this event.. I'm sure it can be tuned to work on other tracks as well.. Now that i think of it... I did use the same tune for the 500pp at motegi and dominated the race.. All i did for London was altering the final gear...

    I can bring one of my NSX's down to a high 53sec lap at london if need be, so i'm not sure if the FT-86 Concept '09 is worth getting.. It's a fun car nontheless...

    I do use the A,B,C sheets but i have 3 cars with 9 different tunes for this now and as you guys have mentioned all with different pp's some with oil changes..rear wings and improved rigidity...so this way i can keep them all together without changing anything.....:cheers:

    Is this FT-1 Graphite the same as the normal FT-1...but with a different paint job...if so Shaun added 25% ballast to position 25...and it's a nice drive....if so we can just use that one it....:cheers:

    Thanks mate that would be cool....but no rush...cheers...:tup:[/QUOTE]

    Just wanted to say: your 550pp tune on the Ferrari 458 was a godsend. I registered just to let you know. This was the first intermediate challenge I've ever repeatedly failed on. The second attempt with your 458 got me the gold, requiring almost no finessing at all. Today also marks the first time I've ever completed an "expert" challenge, as well. This was accomplished on my second attempt with the VW GTI Roadster Vision QUITE easily. Both were relatively cold runs with low to moderate course familiarity and 2 days since I picked up sticks.

    So for those having trouble on Intermediate: Use the 458 550pp tune, supplied. It is the answer, period. For those having trouble with Expert there are many options, but the GTI Roadster most DEFINITELY a very viable and fun option. The only thing really plaguing me is the new Ferrari GTO challenge... I kinda... don't wanna pay for the GTO...

    No worries. Im glad you like the tune. It is a very good tune for most tracks as well as for the seasonal at London. What other cars do you like to drive in the game?

    I would go for a Rosso Scuderia colour.. The Blu Mirabeau colour is really nice but its something about the Red Ferrari for me.

    Take my advice & spend the money on the GTO. It's worth every cent.

    Your car at the end of the race looked like it had been in a destruction derby :) good win though.

    The GTO '84 is a definite buy in GT6. It sounds amazing and I have a lovely tune for it which makes it a great drive.

    Did i include a surfboard holder on the back of my tune? or is that your summer car for when you go down to the beach? I jest of course. What effect does that big addition have on the handling? better, or just for aesthetics?

    Newly tuned cars.

    Callaway C12 '03 (500PP SH and 550PP SS Versions)
    Mercedes-Benz E55 AMG '02 (500PP SS) - Not tuned for the London seasonal. The best Ive got is 2nd. Its a bit heavy for that track but really fast and grippy on other open tracks.
    I have a few more cars left to finalise before I publish them though. It will be a mass influx of tunes at some point again.

    I'll give it a run on a couple other 550 events to test it out. I usually run about 8-10 races every 2-3 days so I don't play that much. I know very little about automobiles and most of my racing experience comes from arcade racers like Wangan Midnight Maximum Tune. As a result I play this game very casually (driving line on) just to slowly educate myself about cars and professional racing outside of what is portrayed on film.

    I started out liking all the JDM tuners, typical Lancer, RX-7 junky. My childhood fantasy cars were Lotus Elise's and Pagani Zonda's but when I picked up this game I found that I just didn't know how to deal with MR cars. Until I discovered your tunes I stuck to FR's (RX-7 and Z4 Coupe) and did no suspension or LSD tuning. I quickly picked up 4WD cars, and am starting to learn FF cars to teach myself proper race braking instead of typical FR buffoonery (throw the ass out, throttle, adjust for exit, FULL throttle when grip is reached). On a side note what is your highest PP tune for a Lotus (aside from the Evora)? I doubt 650PP is realistic, but my 600 and 550 brackets are missing a nice lotus!

    So are so many other cars T-T I am not a fan of Ferrari's despite this gaming making me love them more and more. As a result it'd be a cool looking performance car to get but is not crucial as I lack the true love of automotive history many people in this scene have.
