    I am at work at the mo but I had time to do red bull ring before work. I used the Toyota TS030 hybrid tuned down to 600pp and got a 1.26 on the first lap. There is a lot more speed there though if I am brave enough to carry more speed through the sharp bends. I will tune up an mx5 later for drifting and give the mp4 12-c on ascari. I have a Ferrari California tuned at 550pp with ah tyres already so that should work too.

    At Ascari i won again with a BMW M3 chrome line and i drived the Ferrari California but i had 5 go offs and one clean Lap but 1 Second over Gold. There are no more Credits to win so i loose interest. Your choice with the Toyota TS030 was the best cause it's the fastes Car so far (1.25..) :) Ascari is a wicked Track with the Disqualification by touching the Grass

    Did you add power parts (on the BMW M3 Chrome Line) to reach 550PP or did you leave it at 500PP to get gold? Also, you should add me to PSN account so I can see what lines you are taking, I think I may be able to learn something from you when it comes to driving lines. Mine aren't the best and I'm sure I can be faster.

    I have upped it all the way to 550PP with all engine parts. I should be able to get gold now.
    You goto Friends (when you press the PS button) or on the PS menu system, Add a friend and type in my PS user name morans1980. That should send me a friend request which i can authorise. I have sent a friend request to your username now. (chrisspeed281).

    Tuned with ABS 1 only

    I managed to get 6800 points with this and get gold. Half luck and half tune. The tip for this car is to swing out wide and come back in clipping the apex with the front of the car before powering through. Its not the nicest drift tune I've created but it got me gold and thats what counts.

    Ascari is evil! If only they'd let me use the Audi R8 Chrome Line and id have a lot more confidence going flying into corners! Darn 2 wheel driving! Is the Military paint worth this effort? Time to change from the BMW M3 to something else and see if that improves my not so impressive time.

    Edit: Done - McLaren MP4-12C detuned to 550PP. I was trying to do it in the BMW M3 before but I realised my mistake when I drove the McLaren, It is so much better on that track!

    As long as you get gold, it doesn't matter what car you do it in really. How you getting on with the Mazda Drift challenge?

    Not trying to teach you how to drift but the best way to get the MX5s points up is to get the drift going before you hit the yellow cones and you will be scoring high before the corner is upon you.
    It is a very nice tune. A very easy gold for this track. I reckon you can get another 2 seconds easy out of the Toyota.. I left a second or two on the tarmac when I got a 1.26

    I wanted to thank you again for giving me a Gold set up. I got gold on lap 2. You have to stay away from the curbs though. I rolled my TS030 on the first attempt and just did a restart. That makes 3 of your set ups that has been the Midas Touch.:tup::tup::tup:

    So far in my garage, I have completed two of the road car VW GTI's. To complete this collection, the next set of cars to be tuned are:

    VW Polo GTI '01 (400PP CS) - Done
    VW Lupo GTI '01 (350PP CS) - Done
    VW Golf IV GTI '01 (450PP SH) - Currently being retuned after testing on another track.

    GTIs that have already been tuned are:

    VW Golf I GTI '76

    I vaguely recall tuning this car. All I remember from this car is that it was a monster when i first started tuning it and calming it down. Really nice car though, a lot easier to drive these days :)

    I used your TS030 tune and posted a mid 1,25 as my first run. Tweaked the settings a bit and landed a mid 1,23. The car is more than able to shave off some more time,now it's just a matter of me being able to push it that extra bit to make it.

    Keep up the good work Shaun.

    Seasonal tunes are my bread and butter, The garage only came about because of these types of events. I really enjoy driving the TS030. Its unbelievably stable and not in the least bit scary when you plant your right thumb during cornering.

    Thats a really good time, I think my best in the car was a 1.26 but I left about 1-2 seconds on the tarmac as I wasn't willing to push the tune as much as it was able to go. Driver skill ran out before the tune ran out I think. :)

    It made for an entertaining drive to say the least. I'm gonna go at it again to see if i can improve my time.
    The car itself has more to give,that i'm sure of. But as to my abilities to make it happen remains to be seen.

    Oh,and on another note. Your MX5 drift tune... Nice setup on that one. I managed an 8800-ish run.

    Keep doing what you do.

    Im glad the MX5 Drift tune has worked for someone else, was starting to worry it was more luck on my side that got me 8500 points. :)

    Ill be here for some time yet, this game is in its infancy and in many ways, so are the tunes, PD will probably give me a reason to re-visit them at some point!

    Well done! That is quite an achievement.

    I think it is nice to have the odd few conversations along the way as well as tuning talk. It makes the game experience more sweet.

    I agree with you. I don't see the point of having such a great platform that GTPlanet is and not using the features to get like minded people talking about not only cars, but having general banter as well. We live in a connected world and GTPlanet is a bit like travelling to me, I can talk to people from all countries, about a common interest very easily.
