    Managed to improve my results on the latest seasonals..

    10k point runs at both drift events.

    1:29.xxx with the "Datmo" and a 1:32.5xx at matterhorn with a Lotus Elise 111R race car.

    Quite happy with those results tbh.

    Id be happy with that too. I haven't bothered redoing the time trial seasons since I got gold. There is no incentive for me personally. I have been getting back to tuning up cars since I got gold in all 4. Got some nice cars coming up when I have the time to spend on fine tuning them all up.

    Well done on improving your times, Im sure you'll be up at the top of my friends leaderboard on all 4 events by now.

    What segment of cars are up for tuning this time? affordable or pricy?

    The 20 million credit 250 GTO Ferrari and all the rest are definitely affordable. You probably already have the 20 million Ferraris so you'll be fine :)

    It has camber and toe which is untunable so I am having to work around these to find a balance of power and handling.. Its not that easy but it will be great when I find that balance. Could be done tonight, could be done in a weeks time. depends how soon I find the sweet spot in it.

    There are a lot of gems (or potential gems) in this list. Most of the cars are created already, some I have to buy but don't have the credits to at the moment (McLaren GTR Base Model for example). It will keep me out of trouble for a while all of these cars.

    I've noticed something while browsing through your 1st page containing the different pp brackets and classes that there is a touring car that's missing from the list.. The Mitsubishi EVO IX GSR Touring Car '05.

    I saw that you had the Impreza touring car and the CR-Z touring and the 3 skylines but the EVO is missing.. Any particular reason to why that car isn't on there?

    I remember that car from GT5 as being one of the funnier 550pp cars to fling around tight and twisty tracks.

    Camber and toe is untunable at the 250 GTO and my 20 mil. Ford GT40 Race Car is not Premium so for me PD is hard to understand (like Woman)

    I couldn't agree more. If anyone can understand PD (or women for that matter), feel free to share the explanation with all of us

    Cars like the Mitsu EVO are realy good for twisty tracks that's why i used the Subaru Impreza Cusco for gold at Matterhorn Event

    Review: This is a good tune. It was very stable and incredibly easy to drive. You would be expecting the rear to step out on you, but it stays fairly planted. A little more mid corner rotation would be a bonus. Nice job!

    I see this being used a ton by people who visit your garage.:tup: A 550pp FR American Muscle monster that is very stable. The rear tires would squeal, especially at the top of the hill, but the rear didn't whip itself around.[/QUOTE]

    Great Review Shaun on your FITT Ford Shelby GT500 '13 Entry....Well Done Mate...:tup:

    For every hour of game you can achieve 2 millions credits ( with bonus 200% ) at Seasonal Spa wet race 500pp until 16/10714...:)
    Very easy race with every good car and so I did it.

    Time for me to fire up the 'ol ps3 and grind for credits. I might get sidetracked after a while and go online to see if i can find a decent lobby. If not, i'll start my own.

    I choose to do the Autumn Ring Seasonal. It works out at 440,000 credits per 15 minutes and I find that I can tune up american muscle cars and find potential cars for the future. It works out well for both grinding and tuning on that event.

    Get grinding those credits. They will come in useful soon enough.

    Great Review Shaun on your FITT Ford Shelby GT500 '13 Entry....Well Done Mate...:tup:[/QUOTE]
    Im a lot happier with the Stang tune than I was with the Focus tune. This tune will hopefully place higher after the rest of the testers have done their reviews. Your tune is also doing well, very close in terms of DC to what mine is achieving and the time set depends on the tester. I can imagine your happy enough with your current tunes. Both the Focus and the Stang.

    I'm Pleased for you mate and your'e right it all depends on the tester driving them..Lionheart drove ours very well to get the better times than we did...lets hope the other testers can do the same...:tup:

    I'm very pleased with mine thanks mate...and it's definitely a learning curve and to take on board what they say about the tune and try to apply this to future tunes....i am learning alot from this and enjoying it to....:)

    I would if I could, I have to do a few hours uni work. I had my break in Uni work to watch the F1. Great race by the way, I love it when Rosberg overcooks it. He just can't take wheel to wheel racing with Hamilton right now. Doesn't matter how fast he is, if he can't wear the big boy pants when going toe to toe with greatness, he's going to come off second best every time. Anyway, going off topic for a second there. Enjoy the online racing, hope you find a few more people to join you.

    Of course the uni work is important and it hurts for me how the cars with mercedes engine pass the Ferraris

    I don't think their season will improve nor will they have much luck next year if they don't improve on their engine units. At least next year they will have a magician in their car. A guy who dominates F1 for Four years and then he is given a new toy and disappears into thin air. That is a true magic trick by any stroke of the imagination. I was a little worried that JB didnt seem happy at the end of the race, he got 4th place through merit and he seemed down beat.. It seems that he's not got a drive for next year, which would be a tragedy. If anyone shouldn't be driving next year, it should be guys like Maldonado. He's a liability when he's on track in my opinion.

    IA|550PP WTCC Mount Panorama Winner! :tup:

    A great little car, very stable. Only problem is the 5 speed gearbox... It ruins the car and the driving...

    Note: Final gear moved to 3.000 for the track. Minimal value, lower the this and 2nd gear dies...

    I shall perhaps look at the gearing of this car when I have some spare time. Thank you for letting me know. I too find this car very responsive and agile. Specially for its PP.

    :tup: Thanks for that. :) Only when you have the time, i'm just trying several cars, its the only reason to keep playing the game... I lowered the FG until 2.500, but the car died, literally...

    :tup: Indeed, very agile and stable.

    EDIT: Just noticed a "GT3" Aston Martin in the list, guess who's next on Mount Panorama... :D

    My current attempt of tuning looks great. Can't quite figure out the balance yet but I don't mind taking my time with this tune for some reason :)
