    @shaunm80 i wish you the best with adding links only 300 or so tunes O_o.
    I would keep a Raw BB Code copy locally on your computer with note pad or MS Word etc that way if things go awol on you again you can just replace the entire post and solve the problem(s)

    The Pescarolo was probably my favourite there, it did a great job in those ones at Tokyo a little while back there. But seeing as I very rarely drive now other thans easonals it is hard to have a real feel for anything in the game now. But I loved what you did with the WRX-STI '02 for the Impreza/lancer seasonal there, a lovely little beastie to drive. As is, it also cleaned up the expert rain master event.

    I decided that I would start to link my garage together once again but I am doing it in stages. I started with FITT tunes and the ones from page 1. Slowly but surely, this garage will become linked once again. It is a long term project I have going on.

    As a graduate of computing, I know what BB code is but what is the best way to copy out all the BB code from GTplanet when I am done? I assume it is a simple copy and paste job?

    Oh yes, I really enjoy tuning Subaru cars. They have a certain personality about them which when tuned right, can be a perfect car for multiple events. If you like what I did with the seasonal, I have some FITT competition Subaru and Mitsubishi tunes in my garage which I think you will get on with like a house on fire. They were excellent in the dry races and received great reviews.

    The Exeter GT Tuning Top 10 Tunes Project

    P1060218.JPG

    Why a Giraffe image you are thinking? Well, a simple answer to this. It could be a tall list :)

    Following a side project I have decided to do, I posed a question to my thread contributors regarding their top 10 tunes from my garage. The original post is here. If you have the time or inclination, feel free to fill it in and post your personal top ten tunes. :)

    What you're asking of is somewhat a bit of a "tall" order. (yes, pun was indeed intended)


    From my own perspective there are far too many gems in this treasure chest to only pick out 10 of them for a top 10 list.

    I had a quick look yesterday to jog my memory and quiclkly came to the conclusion that i simply couldn't pick.

    I sure hope you understand, besides. It's your own fault for creating this many stellar tunes.

    Hey @shaunm80 it is going to be dam hard for me to pick my top ten, I have used so many of yours cars for the seasonal events and testing. I do not know which of the top ten cars to pick, so I might give this a miss Shaun sorry because I have far top many to choose from.

    I can only take these comments as compliments so I thank you guys. Part of the reason I keep tuning is to have a break from uni work, and also because I have great thread contributors who make this place a cool and happy place which I try and keep up to date.

    This talk about tunes has got my fingers itching for a good 'ol GT6 throwdown. I might set up a room in a while and hope there are someone feeling the same way and wanna join in on some online racing.

    I can't afford to have lots of work to re-sit at the end of next year so this year is about me jumping into uni stuff ASAP and doing well so I can enjoy my summer break next year. :)

    Yeah that is the best way.
    Just edit, more options, click the wrench icon top right to go to the text editor to show all the BB code.

    Nice choices. I see the FITT Mini is a common theme already. Also the Chevy Camaro Z28. KTM also mentioned twice now. Interesting. :)

    The Mini is my long time favorit , i use it with 450 PP , nothing else to change and the Ferrari 458 FITT tune works also perfect , i use it with lower weight and 550 PP but the Suspension setting is just great

    I would say it will depend on how the seller handles the situation. Do they take it back, and deliver a new one no cost or do they make you pay for shipping again, or do they give you a hassle about it stating how do we know that's the controller we shipped you..

    Well... it turned out that the rings were of the wrong design. My better half had ordered another design all together, so we got in touch with the jeweler and they took care of the problem alot quicker than i thought. new rings are delivered express to us at no extra charge. No carbon fibre for me tho, but i'll still be rockin Tungsten Carbide but with rose wood inlay instead. Looks even better.



    On a sidenote however..



    Thought i should show you the hammer i got.

    it weighs in at 42grams/ 1,48oz. Not a small piece by any stretch of the imagination.
