    @shaunm80

    Here's my feedback you wanted.

    • Important notice!!!
    • Oil changes needed on two of the tunes. Those are: 500pp and 550pp. So you need to alter the tune sheet/info on these ones


    I'm done testing 3 of your (C.O.T.M)Maserati tunes.

    500pp-SS
    550pp-SS
    550pp (Full Aero)-SS
    ---------------------------

    500pp SS at SSR5 Seasonal.

    Slightly different setup than Bowtie-muscle used on his, but still very similar behavior. By that i mean that it's very forgiving on the corner exits. Slight screech of the tires and a tiny wiggle and it sorts itself out, almost like magic.

    The mild mid-corner understeer is present in this tune as well. I did try the same approach as before and took a later apex in that particular corner and it sortof got the job done. This has me a bit confused tbh. Not being able to pinpoint if it's because of the tune or my driving style. It feels like i need to get some more time behind the wheel of it and get to know "her" a bit better.

    Won the event with ease posting solid mid 1:28's. Once i can nail the tunnel corner i'm sure i can dip even lower.


    With that being said. I'd say that this is another great one of the ever growing list of enjoyable tunes that you've created.
    ------------------------------------


    550pp SS at Mt Panorama.(National A Clubman cup)

    You said in the tune notes that you left this one a bit loose in the rear department, that was no lie.
    The rear end stepped out on me in almost every corner leaving the competition in what can only be described as a smokescreen.

    The gearing was not suited for this track, but i grabbed the win regardless of that fact. Sure, i could've altered the final gear, but when i test tunes i tend to leave them as the tune sheet implies.

    A bit wilder in the corners than Bowties's version, but i had a blast driving it.

    (And just for good measure i took one of your older seasonal tunes out for a spin at that event, the 450pp NSX-R. Guess what happened?)
    ------------------------------------


    550pp Full Aero at Mt Panorama.

    Being a bit on the edge after driving your "loonigan" version i approached this one carefully. Totally uncalled for on my part because this was the complete opposite from the "loonigan".

    More composed and well behaved and not prone to shaking "her" booty. Fun car to drive nonetheless.
    Slight understeer at times,but i chalk it down to me going to fast into some of the corners. She did however become a tad unstable on the peak where she got lighter on her feet. That resulted in me sideswiping the walls. When she regained the weight she took "the dipper" section quite well.

    Minor tweak on the final gear is needed on this one in order to make it on the straights.

    Very enjoyable drive. But i'm used to you providing that with your tunes.

    Many thanks for the review. Yes, I know what you mean about the non-aero version of the 550PP version. It is a little cheeky at times but it works and it is certainly fun. It won't set any land speed records but really, it wasn't tuned to do that :)

    The other 550PP version is a lot more civilised. It has a greater appreciation for life and cares about its passengers a little more. It is the sort of that car that listens to Jazz FM rather than Rock FM. Mount Panorama is always a little hit and miss for a test track for my car, unless I have specifically driven the car there for any reason, they don't seem to work as well as they do at other tracks but at least you survived the experience. :)

    I will sort out the oil change on the sheets you mentioned too.

    Excellent review. thanks again!

    Best lap time on 400PP Tsukuba season was a 1.06.300 with this tune. It isn't perfect for this track but it should work on other tracks in GT6 fairly well.

    The best thing about this particular car is that it should be very cheap to tune. I used the Abarth 500 '09 which I won from the Sierra special features. This car was gathering dust in my stock garage but it has since been revitalised into this. The car which they give you has a lot of tuning parts already applied and with a full range of tyres.

    I take insane as a compliment... at least for this car. It is a TVR TC after all. :)

    Edit: The Audi TT you tested at 400PP a while back. Was it just the gear box you felt needed working on?

    What is most impressive about this car is the power to weight ratio.. such a light car with a shed load of power going through it. PD actually made this car awesome, which is something they haven't done for a lot of cars which should be good but aren't.

    Updated Car

    The Audi TT 1.8T quattro '00 (400PP CS) car has got a new transmission setup for the 400PP seasonal. I am going to retune this car on SH tyres to see if that makes any discernible difference to the handling around this track.

    Yes, the gearbox had this issue:

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Easy win in CS, and the 4WD surely helps... But this tune has na issue:

    The values on the FC Gearbox do not match

    In order to get a value near the 1st (2.598) with FG as 4.200, the mas speed must be 200km/h (124mph)

    DSC_0010.JPG
    So, did the event with default gearbox... :)

    Everything else :tup:

    Original post on P1 +11 has now got a new up-to-date transmission which can be altered for different tracks. The SH version is coming along but it needs a little more refinement. I think I can get more rear rotation to help with high speed cornering out of it yet.

    I think the 1250 was correct, I just didn't change the ballast weight. this has been amended. The 1300kgs has also been changed to 1390kgs. Thanks again. :)

    Very nice. Good attempt with a lesser car again on the night race. Some nice wins on the beginner level CC race. That CR-Z looks very cool in that colour. Really crisp!

    Beginner Level CC Seasonal Tsukuba Winner! :tup:

    Great little motor... What lacks in top speed compensates in cornering agility. It has a rotation/roll effect that throws the rear and allows much earlier accel., much needed to take the lead of powerfull cars...

    Really liked it... :)

    Beginner Level CC Seasonal Tsukuba Winner! :tup:

    Incredible fast and fun to drive! Excellent mid-corner rotation... :)

    I know I said drive it like you stole it. I didn't think you'd put the muggle cloak on it like that Harry Potter Ford Anglia :)

    Im glad that you liked the Abarth. It is a great little car.

    This car is unfinished at present but it is still good for 1.28s-1.29s around the 500PP SS Night Seasonal event. When I have time, I shall refine this tune a little more as it can throw the rear around but it is very easy to control and can be quite fun. The original FITT entry entry which this car has been based on is extremely balanced and this version is no different really. A few slides here and there but not too bad considering I've added 50PP to the car and about 100 BHP to the engine power.

    It is the last few days of the A Spec seasonal races which have produced a lot of good tunes and also brought some older tunes back into the fray. The list of winners has been updated and it is quite impressive. For anyone who is looking to grind out credits in some unconventional low PP cars or just have a blast on Ascari, then check out the list below before the seasonal events are updated. Hopefully the next batch is as fun at the current A Spec races.
