    I have found that Stealth tunes work very well on the normal version of the same car with one exception. The transmission's hardly ever match as the base power of the stealth model is different to that of the normal version. You may have to design a new transmission that follows the same design of the stealth car.

    GSX.. I wish PD would make us use something different for some events. they make it far too easy. I can see why people like it but I prefer the cars like the BMW M3 and like.

    Keep going, you will get it eventually. Drifting is half luck, half skill in GT6 so just persevere and work through the rage :)

    1.32 is a very good time indeed. It looks like I shall have to buy a new HSV and try this setup with a high RPM Turbo. Great find by you guys.

    You blasted the score out of the water. I was happy with my score, let alone a 10K+ score.

    It is a new month which means only one thing. It is a new Car of The Month. This month I am very honoured in that the suggestion I made is being used. Coincidently, this months links with the FITT challenge in that is an old vs new type car.

    @Bowtie-muscle presents: Chevrolet Camaro Z28 '69 and the Chevrolet Camaro SS '10 CoTM.

    I have posted my tunes in there and Bowtie has a large number of tunes published too.

    If you have the chance to stop by, test a few cars and leave a review of them, that would be great. Also, please post a tune if you have the ability and confidence to to do so. It is a lot of fun doing these things and it is what has kept my interest in GT6 going for so long.

    Thank you all for your support and I hope to see you over the the new CoTM Thread.

    Link for the thread is here.

    FITT Old & New Hatchback Tuner Challenge

    A new FITT challenge is among us and I proudly present to you my pair of Mini's. They are nippy, fast and fun to drive. How fast? well that is up to you and how much you get out of them but if you are testing for the competition, Thank you very much and I look forward to seeing what you can do with my cars, as well as everyone else's who is taking part. You will have a blast with this one.

    If you are not testing, I would be very happy if you gave me a personal review on my thread and let me know what you think of the two creations below.

    Link to the FITT challenge thread is here.

    Here are my two beauties which will be going up against some of the best tuners in GT6. May they both do well :)

    This car is one that I used in a previous event and has had miles put on it. If when people are building this ready for testing, they find that the power does match what I have stated, please let me know and I will check this by building a new car from scratch to see if anything is amiss.

    This car does like to smoke but it is a lot of fun and I hope all you testers enjoy this.

    The first one? Yes, it was before I had lots of paint so I went with what I had available. My newer shades are much nicer.

    Edit: I see what you mean now. Not my pictures and Blue does seem to be the standard Bowtie colour but everyone has a change from time to time.

    Gonna have a few runs with the HSV on Fuji in a while. She's plenty fast as is but there's more in her, i can sense it.

    First order of business shall be switching to high rpm turbo and then tweak the final gear to try and get a solid balance between speed and acceleration. I just love how she screams like a banshee going down the long straight.


    I'll also be trying out the M4 on Cape Ring drift. If i can handle the eagerness of it i should be set, but knowing from previous events just how wild she is i'm sure to have struggle on my hands.


    Thanks yet again for providing me with these fine tunes oh great provider of fun, @shaunm80

    No worries, It is my pleasure to produce tunes that provide fun for all. The M4 tune can be wild but if you have luck on your side, it will give you a great return for very little effort. I need to get a new HSV and strap on a high RPM turbo, see what the difference in overall time is.

    It is a little slow.. but that can't be helped for this car. Your time is exactly where I wanted this tune to be and the fact you've said its fun means it does what I intended. I left the fastest car as a backup car because it wasn't as much fun to throw around. I may finalise what I felt was the fastest tune at some point as it will be useful for future events I feel.

    I have not yet found one bad tune from you, they all are so great, other tuners may have a faster car but then the are not stable or fast in the corners. I know that I can push youre and @Otaliema tunes to the limit and even over the limit and the car is still stable

    Made some improvements here and there. Nothing spectacular but still improvements.

    Tried the M4 and got a 7+k run on Cape ring, then i decided to bring out my M3 '07 i've been tinkering with and slid past the score i had with the M4.

    Do you guys take requests? If yes, can you tune the NSX Type R '92. I tried my best tuning it, but I need to crawl before I can walk in that regard. I love the car a bunch and I just want it to drive well.
