    In my opinion, this car works better with no TCS enabled, what I have called FITT style so give it a go and see what you think. This car has loads of grip and will give you a pleasant drive around most of the tracks on GT6.

    A wild child of the MR2 world. Throttle control is key to handing this fiery little car. It may not be the fastest MR2 in GT6 land but it will certainly put a smile on your face as you master this thing.

    Tried and tested on this weeks 450PP SH seasonal event and it works like a charm. A great classic sports car with improved handling for most of the tracks in this game. Enjoy :)

    Here are the five tunes I mentioned. Give them a go, let me know what you think of them.

    I am looking forward to your impressions of these cars. :) Don't worry about the expense of them, give each tune 2 goes around the 450PP SH seasonal and they will pay you back with interest.

    I absolutely love the Nissan Z cars and I've been itching for a Toyota Supra 3.0GT Turbo tune for quite some time. I don't even own the SRT 4 or Prowler, so I think I'll go purchase those while I'm at it! :tup: I'll be back with impressions after I put some miles on each. :cheers:

    Z cars look cool and are pretty fast without adding any power parts. It worked really well on the seasonal event for me. I prefer the Supra RZ in terms of looks but the Supra 3.0GT is definitely an old school classic which can bring many smiles to your face.

    Those american cars are so different to each other. SRT is FF and the Prowler is FR. Pretty close in terms of lap time that they can both accomplish though. As FF cars go, that SRT is a blast.

    I have given up on the Expert seasonal too. 700PP cars around that track is too much for me. If it was 600PP Non-racing car on SS tyres, that would have been perfect but for me, the wrong cars to use for that event.

    I am sure that you'll find them enjoyable. Look forward to seeing what you think.

    Very good to hear! Yes, it is an easy gold at Beginner level. I have added this car to the 500PP list as well.

    Thanks for letting me know. :)

    I didn't have as much time as I would have liked today, but I was able to build and test the Nissan Fairlady Z (R33) '02 and the Supra 3.0GT Turbo A '88. Both excellent setups at 450PP. I ran both around the 450PP Seasonal event. The Fairlady Z has tremendous grip! You can really push that car hard into the corners. I really like how she drives...smooth, no real drama.

    Shaun, did you add the Custom Rear Wing to the Supra 3.0GT Turbo A because you felt the rear end was a little too loose? I only ask because I forgot to make that modification and I had a couple of instances where my car got a little tail happy during the Seasonal event. I'm going to put the bigger rear wing on it and drive it again. I was just curious if you noticed that too, or if you added the rear wing for any other reason. Perhaps I was pushing the car a little too hard, but I do think it probably would benefit from some additional downforce over the rear tires, so that's why I'll be adding that rear wing soon.

    Great job, as always, with both of the cars! :tup: Oh, before I completely forget...Would you happen to know the name of the color that you painted your Toyota Supra 3.0GT? I really like it. Do you know where it came from? :cheers:

    I used your Nissan Fairlady Z Version S (Z33)'02 for Gold in both the Beginners and Intermediate events as per your tune.
    There is a high level of grip and a good amount of speed in the turns. An uncomplicated driving experience. Thank you

    Another easy gold with this tune.
    Took it around GV and recorded my fastest time 1.09 but she was definitely twitchy slowing down for the first turn. Any slight over braking and the back end came round and it was into the kitty litter.
    Any suggestions?

    I bought myself the Chrysler Prowler '02, slapped on the Exeter Tune and took her for a spin around the Beginners Level Seasonal Event a couple of times to get to know my new ride. This is a fun car to drive. She doesn't overwhelm you with power, but she's pretty light. I almost always keep my brakes Standard on street cars. I did with this Prowler, but I had to increase the braking force up to 6/7...I learned quickly that this Prowler will understeer quite a bit if you're coming into the bends a little too hot. A quick dab of the brakes takes car of that... She'll also oversteer under the right circumstances. That combination assures you that you'll be paying attention when driving your Chrysler Prowler! :D Like I said...she wants to have fun!! :sly:

    I have tried to tune this before and it is a tough nut to crack. I will give this a go at a later date and see what i can do with it.

    I will get that changed. Thanks :)

    I use racing brakes on most cars to help with twitchiness. Standard brakes are good for low powered cars but I normally employ racing brakes on cars 500PP+. You could play around with the rear suspension to suit your style. a click or two down on the compression might help solve the issue a little bit.

    Yes, this car isn't designed to be pushed too much. I had a choice to make with this tune. It was either loose in the rear and the tyres would spin up costing time or put in understeer when you go past the tune limits. I decided safety is good and went with understeer. I will revisit this tune at some point and try and make it more neutral. :)

    As much as I would love to see this car in GT6, I think I would honestly prefer it to be done right and put in GT7. PD could make this car more epic than the M3 GTR or CSL if they give it the same treatment that all nissans seem to have.

    I did add the custom wing as I didn't like the look of the original wing. It also helps with downforce and that is a huge benefit with this old car. :)

    It is a colour change paint. Pretty sure it is one of the TVR paints. I will double check this when I log on to GT6.

    The Fairlady tune is very very grippy. I found that if I had too much speed going into a slow corner, it may understeer but a blip of the throttle usually resolves that pretty swiftly. I found this car very easy to glide through the corner as long as you hit the apexes correctly.

    As I said above. It is a very nice car to drive and will do well in future events with its stability.

    Try swapping your brakes to 8/5 and bump up the lsd decel to 22-30 for in-line stability. You could also mess with the damper settings, 6/4. 4/6 might help the twitch. Good luck tweaking it to your own style
