    Hi @shaunm80 ! I have tried this tune at Autumn Ring Reverse out of competition. This car likes to go into a curve, no over or understeering was shown, easy to drive and better than expected. got a 1:25,3.. after a few laps , pretty sure a 1:23 or 1:22 is possible. You have done a good job with this tune , i really like it :tup:

    Thanks for trying the tune out. I am happy to see a good unofficial review of this tune and it is good that this car surprised you in what it can do. This car is quite a looker and now it has the performance to go with it.

    Thanks for the kind remarks about the tune. You are very fast indeed! It is a shame that you are not testing for this one but good to know that this tune has already received good unofficial reviews. Hopefully this trend will continue.

    I'm sure the official reviews will be just as good as the non official!:tup:

    Ran another 5 because I thought I could get more out of it. Not much.:indiff:

    That is sublime car control my friend! Good to see the car is not unsettled by the kerbs either. Not bad at all for an X button basher. :) I can see now why you and @biffa3 are always quicker than me in lap times.

    Hi Shaun,

    I have tried your FITT Heart and Seoul tune at Autumn Ring Reverse. I cannot comment on how well this car performs in good hands because I realized that I do not know this track in reverse. You already have reviews from excellent drivers @chrisspeed281 and @Lionheart2113. However, with me the tune had to deal with I'll timed braking inputs, sporadic steering inputs, kerb excursions and poor throttle control. The car handled all of this easily where many tunes would have put me in the wall. I like the tune so much that I adjusted the PP and took it to both the beginner's and intermediate challenges where it won easily. Well done! :tup::tup::tup::cheers:

    @LordJCS, you really need a PS3! Maybe a used one? It's terrible to see you going through withdrawal. :nervous::crazy:
    I finally golded the 1989 or earlier drift trial using your Yellowbird tune. But I think it needs the masters hands to really shine:idea:

    I also managed to get gold with @shaunm80's Chevrolet El Camino SS 396 '67 (Drift Setup). What a great sounding car/truck that is.

    Cheers :cheers:

    If i could justify buying a previous gen console i would've bought one by now.. As it is now i just can't.



    I need to save funds for a complete wheel rig.

    Isn't @fordlaser777 planning on just throwing his PS3 out? Maybe you could arrange something for it to be sent you instead, @LordCJS ?

    I imagine import taxes from Australia to Sweden might be a little costly but that is a good suggestion none the less.

    I will get these cars added ASAP. Thanks for letting me know. :)

    You were quick before, I can't imagine how much faster you will be when you get a complete wheel setup going!

    No I am not going throw my PS3 out just yet :), I have been playing Assetto Corsa but I always come back to GT6 because Assetto Corsa career mode is a joke and the game itself is a joke at the moment . I shoud have never brought the game :mad:, I will stay on GT6 until GT Spots comes out.

    Hi Shaun,

    I took your 550 PP M3 GTR out for a spin at Big Willow tonight. Everything was going fine until I caught the kerb too hard in the last turn in the third lap and went up on two wheels. But, the car is okay, I managed to get all four tires back on the track after four seconds or so and still won. Great tune!:cheers:

    I use your Audi R8 Race Car '01 for the A-spec Expert Level Racing Car Challenge: Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps for a nice win :cheers:, this is the first time I have use your car Shaun and it was a handful using my G29, the problem I had with the car is cornering and it wants to push rather than turn other than that is a fast car thank you.

    Australia, Sweden, Britain, France, Denmark... I love how racing games and motorsport are a hobby of mine that doesn't have to get swarmed by Americans. :p

    New seasonals, woohoo!

    First I tried the 400pp sh BMW 2002 Turbo '73 sh tune @ the beginners event. Was a sloppy first attempt, but that was all that was needed for gold.

    Next I tried the 350pp CS tune for the Nissan bluebird 1600 Deluxe (510) '69. I left the CS tires on it, but I did need a couple of retries to get gold. First attempt got me 3rd, second attempt got me 2nd and 3rd attempt got me gold.
    image.jpeg



    For the intermediate event I went with the 450pp sh tune for the Pylmouth prowler.
    image.jpeg



    Next I tried the 450pp sh tune for the Toyota Altezza Gita AS300 '01.
    image.jpeg



    For the expert event I went with the 700pp rh tune for the Pescarolo Hybride-Judd C60 '05. This car took a couple laps to get used to after driving the slower cars. So I got a pretty sloppy gold with a penalty or two, but it still counts.
    image.jpeg



    Last I used the 700p rh tune for the Toyota Minolta 88C-V '89. This was a clean race, because I was used to driving the faster cars and the track by then. Although, I do think this car is easier to drive than the Pescarolo.

    There will be a lot of your tunes that will be able to get gold on all of these events. But, just so you know, the 449pp tune for the Amuse Street Version S2000 is not eligible for the intermediate event for some reason?!

    The Amuse S2000 count as a Tuner Car and they are not allowed for Non-Race Car Events

    I like how this new beginner seasonal is all about "overtake a whole bunch of cars in this short time limit". It's a fun little challenge I haven't seen done much in racing games. Usually the time-limit races in GT6 feel more about being able to hold your lead / race consistently / avoid mistakes over a long period of time, whereas this is the opposite of that.

    Hard fight at Apricot Hill with the Midget. The Nissan GT'R win only because he took me into a spin close before the finish line :boggled:

    I would say that it the typical AI style these days. I was using the R8 in the Intermediate event and I braked so I didn't hit the car in front but the Chevy just rammed into the back of me, no harm though as the R8 weighs a ton and a half (literally!) so it didn't budge me into the sand trap. That R8 is awesome by the way. won by over 8 seconds without pushing the tune to its limits.

    Also, the Lotus in the beginner event is definitely overkill but seriously fun. It is a FITT tune from ages ago and it grips like Homer Simpson on bart's neck.

    That part made me chuckle.

    Nearly sprayed coffee on my monitor and keyboard.

    I completed the expert event with the 676pp rh tune for the Peugeot 908 Hdi fap team Peugeot Total '10. I didn't notice the lack of 24pp at all. This is a great car, it turns this race, which is a bit of a chore in the Pescarolo, into a nice drive in the country.
