    Hopefully you can get it sorted out soon then. Seems a little ridiculous that they should mess you around when you were going to pay them money to provide (what should be) a simple service.

    With that fact they should treat you as a loyal customer, not give you the runaround so to speak..

    Hope it all gets sorted.

    All I've got from them so far is, a faceless customer service* rep say "Sorry about that." No phone call, email or letter from a supervisor or management. No offer of a discount to compensate me for the complete waste of time.

    *Does this still exist?

    If my ISP would've behaved like that i would take my business elsewhere. Thankfully they treat me as a loyal customer, so yes, that still exists. Well.. Here in Viking land anyway.

    Didn't "viking land" compose of Denmark, Norway and Sweden back when Vikings travelled by boat across the north sea and try and get a foothold in Britain?

    Intermediate Level RC Deep Forrest Winner! :tup:

    Probably the most stable and grippy car in the game. Very competitive... :)

    You should find all the other entries for this particular car and test a few out. This was an early FITT entry for me and not one of my best tunes. Tuners like Motor City Hami had this tune nailed. Glad you like my version of it though :)

    :lol:

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

    Testing is finished! Ok, here goes:

    AWESOME!!! What a GT3 car... :drool: Shaun, my congrats! I really enjoyed driving this car on MP, it ruled all those corners and bumps. The car absorbs all those bumps and twists of the track...

    It has that great fun factor, the tiny rear sliding to point the car and no wheelspin in slow gears... :tup:

    Maybe the only issue is that the gearbox maxes out really quick, maybe some adjustments on FG will do it...

    Furter test were done in smooth tracks, and personally it performs better in bumpy one's.... :)

    Excellent review. The gear box can be changed to suit the track you are driving. It just needs the final gear changing. I should say, the wing looks a little high, did you set the height to -10? I don't think that will affect the handling per se but personally, I preferred the custom rear wing a little lower. Thanks again for the review.

    :lol: I know, I just got carried away while building the car... I was trying to keep as close to the real one, but I went crazy!

    I'll reduce the wing and see if it affects handling...

    I see what you mean about the wing, It is a lot higher in real life. As I say, I don't think the change will affect handling at all so if you want to leave the wing as authentic as possible, it is all good with me :)

    Expert Level NR NRing Seasonal Winner! :tup:

    This tune was a nice surprise! I already knew the car, by default, has excessive rotation, but it seems to have dissapeared mostly... Much more stable (rear) and fun to drive! :tup:

    Shaun, without oil change, the power limiter only needs 99.2% to reach 550PP... :odd:

    It is a fun car, I love Italian superclass. They have something special about them. You are correct,without an oil change, this car can have a better engine limiter value, unfortunately I did an oil change when I tuned the car and can't undue my figures but anyone who is buying the car new can have it without oil change and potentially have more power from this machine.

    Yes indeed, they are very well portrayal in the game. On this particular event, the 4WD cars, for me, are getting the job done...

    Mainly the Lambos, yesterday with the Murcielago SV managed to recover from a 53 seconds to the leader disavantage and win the race... :sly:

    The only modern Lambo i've used in the game is the Aventador. The classics however... I've become quite fond of them old school pasta rockets.

    While being on the subject of pasta rockets.. I managed to dip below 7minutes on the nurb event with the Cizeta V16-T. Didn't expect that to happen at all but a clean lap and passing the AI at the right time and place made it possible. I'm really starting to like that thing.


    :cheers:

    You should really start entering FITT competitions as a tuner.. I think you'd score quite well in that series. Glad to see that your starting to appreciate the pasta rockets at long last too!

    The ring is hellish. Took me forever to get gold on that one. I love that track and hate it for being so annoying. :) One day I may become better than a novice around it but not anytime soon.

    I still have a 550PP SS version to finish off later on and a special version of the Maserati which I think a lot of you may like. Right now though, I have to study for todays anatomy and physiology test but my afternoon is going to be dedicated to tuning up some beauties. :)

    I have one test every week. We have to do a test of what we learnt the previous week in A&P class. They like to keep us students busy on Nursing Courses.. Not a bad thing but it means my GT6 time has been dramatically reduced recently and probably will do for a while yet. All worth it though in the end. For the greater good.
