    I'm down to 1,22's with some minor tweaks.. That TS030 is one beast of a car when the tune s right.

    When you've got it perfected, id love to see what tune you've created if you are willing to share.

    As soon as i feel i can no longer improve on it i'll share the tune. And from what i feel right now,i'm about to hit the wall. So the tune may show up sooner than expected.

    Edit: Landed a 1,21:831. I was right about there being a 1,21:xxx in my future..

    Praiano's with minor changes (Camber 2.8/1.0 and Toe -0.14/0.20). Current Brake Setting is 6/8. Makes fun to drive with this ugly little Vacuum Cleaner.

    Edit: 1.219 Brakes 8/10

    An easy win for the 550PP Ascari race is the McLaren MP4-12C car in my garage. Its tuned at 600PP SS currently but all you need to do is remove the Sports Exhaust and detune with the power limiter until you reach 550PP. Obviously, stick on a set of SH Tyres and the car is good to go.

    I will give this setup a try. I found I was following your blue line and on corners 1 and 2, I could sneak in front of you to gain a 0.3 second lead but then when you go to the in-field part of the circuit, your blue line just went in front of me by 0.5-0.7 seconds. I tried to catch you up but always DQ'd myself by running onto the green rumble strip before the final turn so never got the 1.22 lap. Darn thing!

    Sorry about that but if you take a look at the Drifting Events you will know who is the Best ;)

    You aren't that far behind me on the Dirt Drift one at all. so obviously you got rally skills in your GT6 arsenal. I am now .723 behind you on the Racing Car hot lap. Your setup is really good, It feels a lot more stable than praianos original setup and I can get on the power a lot earlier. You know how to set up a car, thats for sure.

    Okay, Seriously, I am not as fast as you in the middle section at all! The first two corners gives me confidence but then you just disappear round the long curve bend and I have no chance by the start finish straight. My new record is 1.22.307 and thats probably where ill leave this one. I have the feeling you are very competitive (in terms of lap times) in online races.

    Funny you picked that one!! I've had that car collecting dust and I was going through your tunes and that is the chosen one.. I might try it out in a little bit.. if not, tmrw for sure.. Super curious!!? I need to learn how to drift or get some pointer with this G27 wheel on best way to do it.. I have tried 1 drift TT and I just don't have the patience to keep trying when I have cars with unreal setups and are a BLAST to drive (Thanks to you). almost completed my Career so the wheel time is good and it has got easier which is backwards but I'm not driving a stock setup from the dealership anymore! :sly: I had to work hard to get where I am @ in career mode but its all for the good for someone who just started playing this game!! I will fill you in and let you know how it worked for me(cause I know it's a Great tune) when I run the MP4 weather its good.. bad.. or indifferent!! convinced your tunes suite my driving style with a wheel when your garage clearly says its to help the DS3 users! I think that might be what separates you from the rest? Who knows?!!

    Some of my tunes work well on wheels, others may not be so great. It all depends on the car I guess. Theres no reason why they shouldn't work just as well but Id have no way of testing this as I aren't lucky enough to own a wheel and I don't think my other half would be too grateful if I put a wheel setup in the lounge.

    I have read somewhere that drifting and wheels are not that great together, Its not impossible but people say its easier with a pad using directional controller to control the drift. That may help you a little bit.

    Well you know I will give you as much feedback as I can as I use your tunes.. Its the least I could do! I may be new to the game but I know how a car feels and how its handling.. Oversteer, Understeer, if its under braking or accel. coming out of a corner or whatever.. So I might be a little help to you as a guy with a wheel with some feedback's even though I am just an up and coming wannabe right now! haha.. I use to play NASCAR on PS3 everyday before I got addicted to GT6.. I liked setting up my car in NASCAR for every track.. It was pretty detailed on what changes you could make.! I was surprised but that was the fun part more than i liked to race them because it was just a :censored: fest racing online..

    It's not exactly a rule as such, I just really, really don't like it lol.
    Especially if it involves contact from the passer on the passee :irked:
    Put it this way, if I get passed on the road, I'm not as bad as Jeremy where I have to go past my exit in order to re-pass & be the 'winner' :lol:

    What do you mean? I don't quite understand.

    Testing wasn't going too well, the car wasn't behaving as it should so I thought id make up something fun. that was my attempt. It killed a few minutes. :)

    On par,by golf terms. Oh buddy,we're in pun city today..

    By "on par" i refered to basic golf terms(there i go again) that determine the amount of shots it should take to get from the tee to the green on a golf course.( i did it again didn't i?!)

    Ive played golf about 3 times in my life.. I don't recall being great at it. I recall the terms but it was me who didnt get the link. That shot in the picture took about 3 shots to reach the end of the straight. :) It wasn't really that far so it was probably a bogey shot in all honesty :) I get the pun now!

    The current development program is 2 versions of each of the KTM X-Bows, Both cars will be tuned in Sports Soft tyres and Sports Hard tyres. The Golf GTI still isn't behaving as I would like so that may require more work. It is capable of 44.3xx on Autumn Ring Mini for an easy win but it just doesn't have the grip which I would expect. Hopefully I can have these cars sorted out and published in the next few days.

    This is one of the first tunes I perfected once 1.09 update was released. It is such a nice car to drive now.

    That R8 LMS tune transformed the car into something that dreams are made of.. It's an absolute joy to drive after your tune. Massive thumbs up.

    Rosberg out of the Grand Prix :) The best news possible at this stage of the F1 season. Hopefully he has some more failures during the remainder of the season! Go Lewis!!

    Indeed, it would be a travisty if the BBC didn't have live coverage of the British Grand Prix. Definitely happy today with the way the race is going. I was almost shocked that Rosberg didnt park the car in a place that would bring out a safety car, thankfully he wasn't acting that way today :)
