    This is not a new tune per se as the original settings are taken from my 15th Anniversary Edition tune. However, I have re-designed the transmission for Autumn Ring Mini track for a Beginner’s seasonal race. Very quick around this track and will inspire a lot of confidence. If using on other tracks, set transmission FG to match the longest straight speed.

    All cars added to the list. Great finds in the expert race too.

    Loving the 350PP finds as well. Great to see the under powered tunes kicking some ass against cars 100PP higher. No need for breaks with those cars I bet! Well done to all those who have been finding the sleeper cars for these seasonals, your effort is always appreciated.

    I have also added a new 400PP SH tune (well, not new but it has an updated transmission for an existing tune) for you guys to use. It is very stable and very quick around Autumn Ring Mini. Enjoy!

    I start my placement tomorrow for my course but I will probably be online in the day time as I will be doing night shifts. Hopefully I will catch you at the right time and I can give you a few more races on GTA 5 to make your withdrawal a little easier to cope with.

    All events completed with a nice gold trophy.. I hope for something a little more interesting next time though. On the plus side, lots of credits and couple more cars in my garage to put a tune on at some point. Silver linings and all that. :)

    The GSX-R was especially frustrating this time because of them giving us the stupid Willow Springs karting track. It and the X-Bow have a bad enough advantage already without putting us on a track where pretty much ANYTHING else with enough power will be too massive. So it's even MORE restricted to those cars than usual. They should've done this at 400pp so other fun things like MX-5s and Autozams and Suzuki or Daihatsu kei cars might've been viable.

    EDIT: Oh! I just remembered: This sounds ridiculous, but while fooling around trying other cars, I actually DID post a Gold time with the 2001 Impreza WRX STI Sport Wagon. It wasn't a competitive time, though... something like 1:19.8. But at least it's POSSIBLE to get gold with a larger car. 4WD, at least.

    (That car, btw, is the most fun you will ever have in a station wagon; assuming you are clothed and not in the company of an Oscar Issac or Jason Momoa)

    Got to win some gold today courtesy of shaunm80's tunes.

    First up was the Toyota Minolta 88-v '89. It was a sloppy lap, but easy gold. It seems like second gear just spins and doesn't really grip, I ended up short shifting to be able to control the power better through the corners.

    Next I tried the Audi R8 race car '01. This car is a little easier to control than the Toyota, and I was starting to get used to the track, and I got a better exit off the last corner. You do have to manage the throttle otherwise you can overwhelm the TC and spin yourself.
    image.jpeg





    Lastly, the pescarolo c60 hybride Judd '05. No prob with this car.
    image.jpeg




    So then I moved over to the big willow track. I figured the Ferrari Dino 450sh tune should be able to gold this event and it did! Fun car to drive on this track.
    image.jpeg



    So 450pp sh Opel speedster was next up.

    The last car I had time to try was the 450pp sh Chrysler Prowler.

    indeed,frustrating that they don't come up with new events but only recycle old events.
    GT6 is taking their last breaths.

    One would think they'd put a little more effort into it considering there are still some Vision GT cars yet to be released, but no..

    Keep re-releasing old events as "new" seasonal events..


    It don't matter how many layers of makeup you slap on a pig's face, it's still a pig.

    I agree completely. 450PP would have been better if they wanted 1.20 gold lap times. Lots of tunes in that range will easily reach 1.18/1.19 if you are smooth around this track.

    4WD should be good around this track where traction matters for most of the corners. Subaru's are pretty nippy around these technical circuits too so a good choice of car.

    I am unsure as to who Oscar Isaac is but I do know who Jason Mamoa is. Very broody character in Stargate Atlantis and a great Khal in GoT. GoT is awesome and I love that show. Not sure I would have as much fun as you with them but I could definitely chat GoT for hours with him!
    All added to the list. Thanks for finding more cars that are capable of golding this track that is not a glorified motorbike. :) Well done on finding lots of 700PP cars as well.
    Yes.. they aren't even trying these days with seasonal events. They better be spending all their time on making GT Sport and GT7 amazing!!

    Yup. As much as I love GT6 soon as I get GTsport I'll be solely on it. Already have my brand new PS4 on standby which I bought specifically for it.
    I want to get GTsport as soon as it's available.
    The advantage too is if there are any updates following the release which I'm sure there'll be my incremental updates will be quick and painless as opposed to having to install a bunch of updates later on. Makes sense to me. Win-Win.

    Once GT Sports comes out, there will be 2 PS3 consoles going in the bin and it will be sad but it is only old technology.
