    Hey @shaunm80 Congrats on 300 pages. You have designed a lot of really great tunes and have made GT6 more fun for a lot of people here on GTPlanet with your dedication. Thank you :gtpflag:

    Thanks. I will keep on making the tunes and the 300 pages is not solely down to me, it is down to everyone who visits this thread and contributes to it themselves. The real thanks goes to all of you, I merely provide tunes to use and outline the weekly options for seasonal races. :)

    I have a few nice cars which I am working on right now. One is finished, another is virtually complete.

    They are

    Shelby Cobra Daytona Coupe '64 (550PP RH)
    Alfa Romeo TZ3 Stradale '11 (600PP SS and 550PP SS)

    I am hunting through my garage for tunes which are unfinished, or have not been tuned by myself which are being converted to an Exeter GT Tune. I will publish these two cars tomorrow when I have completed the 550PP SS version of the Alfa Romeo, It is nearly perfect but can be made that little bit better. :)

    I added 50 kg @ position 50 to match the weight and balance specs in the top of the tune sheet.

    With oil change and no powerlimiter it gets to 500 pp.

    With other weight specs, the power and the gearbox matches...


    and congratulations with 300 pages,

    that is amazing,

    and another reason why gt6 is so much fun!!!

    This tune is a little stiff in the rear but it is very grippy. You will have to judge what speed to take some corners otherwise understeer will appear but it is a solid tune and very consistent with lap times when you know where to brake and what speed to take corners.

    An easier to drive Stradale. Very good rotation and very quick even with the massive power limiter applied. Tested at Midway and easily breaking 1.12s without any effort. Great car and hopefully one that can be used in many seasonal events in the future.

    This is my error. I copied and pasted from the original FITT tune and forgot to alter the weight of the car. It should be 795kgs and not 845 which was previously stated. :) Ballast slowed old tune down too much hence a retune and diet to make it more competitive. :)

    For this event, I was Tuner 2. I am pleased to say that my tune came 3rd place in Driver Choice and performed consistently throughout the competition.

    It was not fast enough to take the fight to the light, quick and agile GTR's and CSL's but it was only 2 seconds off the pace of the fastest car in the competition. Very respectable in my book.

    The reviews from all the testers are above so if you want, have a read and see what they said about my tune and all the others submitted for this event.

    PD also reduced the power output of the car noticbly from when the FITT challenge ran. When I re-tuned mine I had to alter the PL and weight. To get the same power and PP as prior.

    Just used this for the World Circuit Tour: Race 4 (International A - Career Mode). The race allowed Race Hard tires, so I used them. Even though this setup is 50PP below the maximum allowed 600PP limit, it was a cakewalk for this M4 to win the race. 1st place was mine before the end of Lap 2. Overall victory was by almost 40 seconds. I will have to do the entire World Circuit Tour on Sport Soft tires at some point, as the tune is actually setup for sport tires, not racing tires. That will probably make it slightly more challenging. :D My brother is buying a BMW M4 and doing European Delivery soon. I am so jealous... :guilty:

    The M cars are a lot of fun. I can imagine that putting RH tyres on this car would give it a lot more grip and the ability to push this car more than you can with SS tyres. I would have no doubt that this tune (as it is with SS tyres) would deal with the World Circuit tour with no difficulties. :) Great win though with RH tyres. 40 seconds is a very big buffer zone between you and the rest of the field.

    You could almost go into the pits and let the computer drive you to victory on most tracks :tup:

    So very true. I hope my wife and I can buy her mom's car down the road. '92(?) M3 E92 with less than 80k miles on it.

    The E92 is a sought after model. Like the M3 CSL, the E92 is regarded as one of the best M cars BMW have made I believe.

    i'd beleave it the Dealership offers to buy it for something like 20k everytime she goes in to have the oil changed and car inspected. (twice a year as it sits in a garage for 95% of the year)

    Sounds like you need to "borrow" it for a few months at a time to give it some use. :)

    Bummer.. Maybe one day you will be able to get one for yourself. Might have to do a bit of saving first though.

    Yeah lol. We own a X5 and that thing is a money pit when it needs repairs. But not much worse then the WRX we have.
    One day we will get the M3 from her, prolly buy it once she says she will never drive it again.

    We had a X5 too, and i agree it was a money pit, but it was a great car... felt a little bit like a tractor, but on the "Autobahn" it was a pure joy!

    Yeah my father in law drive with the check engine light for over a year, I finally got in the shop after convicting my wife it was time to go in when it could bairly do 75 then it started shaking bad.
    Shop found out the vent valves and breather hoses where shot, which caused misfiring which fouled the spark plugs, then while doing the engine repair work found out the intake actuator manifold was destroyed and had been for a long time. The misfiring also appears to have broken one of the lower control arm bushings and the shaking it caused broke the other one.

    $1027 so far would be more but the shop doesn't charge for over lap labor like dealerships do.
    Still working the quote for the control arm bushings

    Now this is just insulting. The rear window on my wife's car was shattered when she came out from work.
