    That's the problem Shaun; Even if I could afford the outrageous prices we get charged for access to the web here in Australia, we still use the copper phone lines for our Broadband. We are very, very slowly getting a new network rolled out but, until then, in certain areas it's a 6 month wait for access to the overloaded infrastructure :banghead:

    As for the 3D version of the Nurb, nothing on this planet called Earth could possibly compare to it

    I do love this tune shaun...its tight and safe:) it wins gold very easily and on certain parts of the track its it feels slightly better... ie going into the corners but i'm finding it a little bit stiff on the front end when trying to hold it on the corner so its taking me a little to wide for position to exit the corner,
    But i have only have done 2 races so far 10 laps with it..gold both times and best lap time so far is 1.20.389 which still good but for me i like her a bit looser:) its still a wicked tune though and i think i might be pushing her a bit to hard...so i'm going to try a more calm approach thx mate

    I found the original tune too lose for my liking. I tried to keep the looseness in the rear of the car but it wasn't really playing ball with me on that. I went for the tune which was the most consistent lap after lap. Unfortunately, that gave the car the tighter line on nearly all corners but I found I could push the car harder during the long corners without having the control the rear of the car with the throttle. I may have another go later to make it looser in the rear than it is now.

    Thanks. Funnily enough i did yesterday after i had a few beers and a vodka after watching the football matches and i was really concentrating on the track as i knew i had some alcohol in my system haha sober this morning and i keep going off the track!!

    I think gold is going to be too stressful. There is no room for error on such a time consuming lap. I would not mind too much if it was the short version of the ring but this one takes the :censored: when you get disqualified. I will give it a few more goes. But i think i will settle for the silver.

    Good luck to you too.

    I often find that I am faster on tracks when I aren't concentrating over hard at driving the car. If i drive like I don't care, I get into a rhythm and my times get faster without trying. I am finding this on the final senna race. If i didnt fluff up the middle section of the track, I would be able to do a 1.08 easily but I always spin up the rears up the hill before the sharp right hander and end up in the grass. Just gotta nail that section and I reckon I can get gold but my patients wears thin after 30mins of disqualifications. :)

    I like to mix my pictures up a bit sometimes. Whilst its nice to have scenery and passing other cars, the funny pictures with cars flying through the air are often fun to post.
    Yes, this tune is designed for A spec at willow for the win rather than an all rounder (like the Ferrari 430 and Lexus). It certainly knows which way it needs to be driven so you may need to adapt your driving style slightly to get the most out of this car. I got a 1.20.001 out of this car in the actual race. There is a 1.18 or 1.19 in there somewhere though in the right hands.

    I know 118 or 119 is in this new set up too, in the right hands, i have now tried 7 races...got gold on all but couldnt beat my best of 1.20.197(with this set up)which i got in race 2.
    So i went back to your first tune which is the looser version of your car and first race hit 1.19.073 ...my best so far is 1.18.343:) so looks like for me i will be sticking to your 1st tune;) i really did want this new tune to beat my best time but i couldnt pull it off...i worked out in the end that i was losing my time on the 2 big corners..not the small ones which i thought at first..i found i just couldnt drift enough around them smoothly like the old tune...i do really appreciate the new tune and its been fun trying to lower the time:)thx
    They are both race winners with different driving styles:)

    I have made some slight amendments to the F599 at 550PP. It isn't as tight as it was and in free mode, I was running 1.18.5s with my skill. Maybe its because the car is set up for my style on this circuit but you may be able to get similar times now.

    Are the 250 mil credits earned legit or was it a bit of 1.01? If its the former, then you've been very busy. Ive earned 90mil credits and god knows how long I've spent on this game!

    Respect to you! I don't blame you, you should be relaxing and recovering from injury definitely! I am burning up willow springs at the moment in a selection of 550PP cars to grind some credits. I spent the last of mine a few days ago on the TS030. Nice car but not sure its worth 2 million credits right now. Hopefully a seasonal race will enable it to earn some back.

    1.19 is good. At least you can have 2 setups for this car now, the looser one which you enjoy and the tighter version if needed. Good to have a choice.

    @shaunm80

    Good sir,

    Just a small question:

    On the tune update, the PP of my Z4 is at 657 with High RPM Turbo and 776BHP with 89.5% limited

    an you please check if its correct, so I can be sure the mistake is mine...

    TY! :tup:

    Chat soon. :)

    Out of interest, what race car do you use for the Silverstone 10 lap race?
    I will check in a bit. I'll have to turn on the PS3 in a little while and come back to you.
    Edit: I have checked and what I have wrote down is correct. Not sure how much Engine Tuning Stage 3 may add but have you got that selected accidentally? If so, that may explain some of the extra HP? You may have to detune the engine further to reach the PP range. Either that of install Mid RPM Range Turbo Kit and change PP accordingly to keep the engine limiter as close to 100% as possible.

    Has anyone else had this problem matching the PP to the Z4 GT3 with my setup?

    TY! :tup:

    Just did a small test, bought a new Z4 (mine has almost 1000km) and even with a new one the values don´t match...
    For 650PP its 84.2% with High RPM at 732BHP or 100% Mid RPM at 669BHP

    Maybe milleage is afecting tuning more now...

    @shaunm80 - Just test info
