    Subaru IMPREZA Sedan WRX STi Version II ‘95

    Antares26
    Subaru Impreza Ver II – 3:28.891
    DC: 8.0/10
    I found it very easy to take the turns fast in this car because it’s 4WD, but in the longer corners near the end, it was quite a hassle since the car began understeering at the slightest touch of the throttle. Still, the acceleration on the straights felt very good, and the brakes work very well as even with the fastest speed on the straights, I was still able to brake just close enough to the corner entry. What set me off a bit was that on the long straights, the rear starts to feel like it’s floating at around 140-150km/h so tackling the kink just before the 2nd split was a bit scary, to say the least, the fastest lap was done on a lucky fast exit out that kink.

    DC: 8

    Notes:
    • Very neutral
    • Good rotation for the most part but understeer appears in the longer corners
    • Rear likes to come around under hard braking
    • Good transmission
    • Easy to drive but hard to maintain speed, small mistakes cost lots of time

    2:03.375
    DC: 9.5
    Notes:

    • Great launch, gets off the line like a scalded cat
    • 1st and 2nd feel a little short but not too bad
    • Very responsive and easy to place
    • Rear end can be a little slippery but it doesn't seem to affect the pace
    • Good brakes
    • Bit of understeer at the limit but not too bad

    Comments: This is AMAZING! PERFECT 10! Quality Craftsmanship! Ok enough brown nosing.:lol: I just felt at home in this car. It became addicting trying to beat each lap time and I had to force myself to move on after 10 runs. Really Bravo Sir! Not a single critique from me! Great Job!

    Great car. Little tail happy for me liking, but solid none the less. great build on the transmission after 2nd gear, little short for off the line in 1st and 2nd. Throttle control out of the turns is very needed or you will be wiggling down the straight. Stay on the black stuff!!!! I put a wheel once or twice and spun it pretty fast. Overall great tune couple of minior tweaks and this would have been a fantastic tune.

    DC: 9.8 / 10

    This is, no doubt the best car in Group 2. It corners so good in the wet that I just have to let go of the accelerator when I need to brake for the corner. Power delivery is so good that I thought I set the wrong track parameters because there’s no understeer with the accelerator on while turning. Brakes are superb, too, stops on a dime just like xande’s R34. A very well balanced car with very high performance in the wet, very well done. My only issue here is 1st gear is too short for the car to really go flying out of the start line.

    I was just told recently that good tunes make for good runs. This tune fall in to that category. Easy to drive and inspires confidence. Made me feel like I was a better driver than I am. Tried to push it harder and harder, runied a couple of great laps. I didn't mind the bit of understeer, it helped me set up the car for the next corner. Great ride! Nice Job.

    Power and torque figures are based on your country code for your game. Want ft-lbs get an American copy.
    Edit; your PS3 won't read disk so don't bother

    As most of you will know, I'm in Australia & we get the KGFM torque figures as well with our game.
    Most of us here are used to speaking in terms of Newton Metres (Nm). Some engine builders still use lb/ft and that makes a whole lot more sense to me than kgfm. I've never come across that measurement before seeing it in GT6.
    I'm pretty sure in a previous edition of GT, we had the option of setting our preferred method of measurement. Hopefully that returns in the future.

    Used exeter-tuned Nissan Fairlady Z 280Z-L 2seater (S130) '78 (400PP SH) for the current beginners challenge. Still trying to win the expert race. Currently using a detuned Pescarolo C6 05. I will get there in the end.

    I won using your TVR Tuscan Speed 6 Touring Car ‘00 for the Expert Level Racing Car Challenge (600PP RH).
    This car is the best that I have ever driven so far from your garage :bowdown:Shaun, and for a wheel user it has no handling issues what so ever. PB200002.JPG

    I am glad to hear that. I like doing my british cars justice. Feels like patriotism and all the other good things about living in England. :)

    I was going to use the Aussie 2000 Ford Falcon XR8 but it was to heavy and to slow for the race. The TVR Tuscan Speed 6 Touring Car ‘00 I think I am going to use this car more often, because this is the first time I have use his car.

    Oh my. I have just found a screaming, fire breathing banshee in GT6. This car will amaze you with its agility and speed, not to mention the sound that comes out of its exhaust. If you thought your other half could wail when you have spent 6 hours on GT6 non-stop, they can take some lessons from this beast. Tunes being worked on now and will be uploaded ASAP. 4 down, 4 to go. :)

    No, no. That would just be rude. :)

    I am not sure what else this particular car could become. I will let you decide when you test drive it yourself. :)

    I suppose if you painted it orange with black dots it could be a cheater.. It has that sort of howl about it when it goes in for the kill.

    What, and ruin the build up to this amazing machine? Nah, I will keep the suspense going for a little longer. I only have a few more cars to finish tuning and then I can publish them all in one go. :)

    Nope. Apart from the Gumpert, what German car has a wail? Most German cars are pretty quiet or rumble along with their V6s or V8s engines. :)
