    I do plan on finalising another group of cars this coming week for publication ASAP. Not sure how many at the moment but I will do as many as I can before the christmas period. Hope you all like this batch of cars and my apologies for being a little slow recently with new tunes. As I'm sure you can all appreciate, my life has become a little hectic and I am doing my best to juggle many things. More great tunes to come though. Keep an eye out and as always, thanks for your support with my thread. Means a lot to me.

    Great Scott!!

    Just to clarify something Shaun.

    I had boat loads of fun during that FiTT testing session. And i also got bunch of cars that all behave slightly different.
    Some of them crisp and precise while others are just a hoot to drive.

    I'd say that more than makes up for the time spent. Don't get me wrong, i do appreciate the kind gesture with this guest tune.

    I'll be listening to the BTTF soundtrack while i tune this puppy and drive the wheels off of it..

    On a sidenote:

    Nice bunch of tunes you posted. The R33's by far my favorite among GT-R's. So cudos to you for providing tunes for it.

    I also had a look at the LSD setting on your M4 550pp. It turned out that i only changed the Accel to 11. That's where i ended up. Been trying a lot of different layouts but that value seemed to work better for me.

    :cheers:

    I know you had a great time with the FITT challenge. I am glad because it means that you may come back for more :) I was using humour with the beginning of the post for the DeLorean as its a time machine car. Sometimes my humour doesn't really show in this thread but thats technology for you. :) I look forward to your review on the R33 tune now. I hope it is to your approval.

    Hehe.. No worries. Your humour came across loud and clear.


    I'm sure the R33 tune and i will get along just fine. I managed to break into 1:34's on the RBR seasonal earlier.

    I got up to level 10 on Drive Club earlier :) that made me fairly happy. I am not surprised you made it into the 1.34s. Are you and Chris having your own personal battle still? :) you two are always on the top of my FL.

    Not sure about the whole battle thing.. One thing i do know is that he is really fast. Take the Matterhorn 600pp event a while back(The Tommykaira ZZII was the car of choice there i believe). That was a proper battle to the bitter end.

    How's the PS4 treating you?

    I have only played on drive club and the crew so far. Both of those games are great. Still got 3 games still to load up. The ps4 seems light years faster than the ps3, I didn't realise how old the ps3 was till I got the ps4. That being said, gt6 is definately an awesome game still, I can't tune up cars in the new games like I can in gt6.

    That would be good. It would be great to have you on my DC club. I have a feeling you'd be pretty good at that game.

    @shaunm80

    I've tried out your recent batch of Nissan tunes. I had a sneaky suspision that the R33 GT-R V-spec '97 and i would get along just fine, i was right. A pure pleasure to drive. I don't have too many "standard" cars since i rely on the cockpit view when driving, but i do have some. Now i have a couple more thanks to you. The 400R was one of my go-to cars in GT4 and GT5. The Road LM R33 however. A bloody shame it's been nerfed down by PD. That car in real life is a proper powerhouse.

    A special thanks to both @shaunm80 and @Bowtie-muscle for the time machine. It will only be used for good things, you do trust me right?:sly:

    Anywho. Hope you guys have a great day.

    :cheers:

    Action pictures all the way. It was during my testing phase, the rear was a little loose and kept spinning on me, made for excellent photos however :) It doesn't handle like that now though... it is much more civilised.

    I think you will like the pilot skills of the SH version and the gripper version (SS tyres) in equal measures. I tested both and really liked the feel of this car and tune.

    Im glad you like the R33's. I am going to turn a few more into more powerful 550PP SS versions this week as they should be really quick for that PP range going by the times that the SH versions can set. I agree with you totally about the LM R33.. It really shouldn't be slower than the Premium Road Car '97 version on the seasonal yet it is about 1.5 to 2 seconds slower per lap in my hands. No tune I could create was going to make that gap up. I don't really know what PD did to that awesome looking GT-R but they certainly didn't do it any justice.

    I somehow knew that you would like the handling aspect of the SH version. Nice place to park up and check out the view, Now, if only you could photoshop some flames following the car when you took off, that would be an epic picture! @Bowtie-muscle will be pleased with this i should imagine, apparently MR tunes are not common place in his garage but id say that he's got this one down perfectly.

    Indeed. It sure has and needs the pilot driving style. Smooth and fast driving with great stability. The "slowin, fast out" is perfect for this car... :)

    Photoshop is not my thing... :D Gonna try ask someone to do it...

    If so, great 1st one! :tup:

    My apologies for double post, different subject - Reviews:


    Beginner's Level Japanese Car Seasonal Winner! :tup:

    Incredibly fast and agile. Easy winner. Corners naturally, no need for hard acceleration to keep the car going... :)
    Huge grip achieved on those SH.

    IB License Tour of Japan Race 1 600PP Winner! :tup:

    All the best of 500PP version with even more power and agility, combined with the SS tyres makes it bad driving proof... :)

    No worries about the double post. Thanks for the reviews. I enjoyed that car on the Japanese seasonal. It is grippy yet fun and thats how a GT-R should be in my book :) The SS version is a big bundle of group and that can only be a good thing in future seasonal events. I look forward to getting to use it on them

    On another note, too all garage people. I have tried tuning today but my head isn't with it. Just coming up with a bag of nothing decent so I put the PS3 controller down and picked up the crew instead. I am working on some Jags and a SS version of the S2000 which I posted this week. Some nice rides coming up when my head is in the game. :)

    At least they are giving us SH tires for that range they used to give us CS or CM tires for that range FF at deep forest anyone? the Rocket hot lap sucked 600pp on SH? seriously?

    *gets off soap box sorry about that*

    @LordJCS @cbarbosa thank you for the testing in the FITT British invasion was nice to see some new faces in the mix :cheers: Could I barrow one or all of you to put my ZZII through it's paces? I would love to know if I ran out of skill or the tune ran out of grip.

    @chrisspeed281 - I may actually play on GT6 tomorrow once the new seasonal events come out. I have been enjoying other games this past few days but I shall be back to the slow(er) system of the PS3.

    and Otaliema.. You must promise to return any of my thread contributors. My garage would be nothing if it wasn't for them so I will need them back at some point... You should have cleared this with me first.. :lol:

    Sure thing bud. I'll give your tune a proper shakedown to see what it's capable of. Is it by any chance this one you used to set your time on the seasonal event?

    It is the same one with a minor change to the front spring rare as I noticed it was over loading coming into the slow turns from high speed
