    Thanks for posting it here.. I'll look into this one with a keen eye. This car was one of my all time favorites in GT5. Had me many fine battles with that car. You better have done the car justice or i'm coming after you with a hammer. (a hammer is the solution to all problems if one asks a certain Mr Clarkson)

    This car was one sonovabitch to tune. This tune needs finesse in slow, tight corners. Nice in fast flowing corners and the brakes are good after a lap of warming the tyres and brakes up so they work as they should. This tune isn't one to throw around, it will unbalance itself, I am trying a new style to see what the FITT testers think of it. :)

    I certainly hope it does. :) Will put me in good stead for the FITT competition. If you are a fan of a car you really drive the wheel nuts off, you should try out my FITT Mini Cooper. It will probably fit your driving style down to a t.

    All my FITT tunes are published in this thread and I link back to them from the FITT competitions. If you go to the bottom of Post number 3 on page 1. you will see all my previous FITT entry. The one you need for the Mini is the FITT Hot Hatch Competition.

    2nd part to the Wilder beast Crossing.

    This splash is a crocodile drowning a baby wilder beast who decided to swim back across because it thought that its mum was on the other side. Amazing sight to see the Croc drowning a wilder beast. It really was a safari out there :)

    Still in need of luck or skill to get 1st place at Nurburgring. I managed to only have one excursion into the grass with my Audi R10 Stealth Model tune but still 6 seconds behind the leader :( Nissan GT-R Stealth was a 4th place finish because I kept falling of the track. I lack the driving finesse to excel at Nurburgring I think. Ill keep trying tomorrow and see what happens. :)

    Have you tried the detuned Pescarolo C60 Hybrid? That car would probably be your best bet at this moment. It's quite forgiving. But i guess that doesn't mean a thing if one doesn't have "the flow" needed to succeed on the track at hand.

    Nurb is called "the green hell" for a reason, and a good reason too. What i've worked out to be the key to success here is to be patient with the overtaking. You don't want to be too eager with the passes. Pick the spots where you know you can pass without issue. A thumbrule i use is to overtake them into corners by the means of outbraking them or at the exits. If you find yourself in a car that lacks speed on the straight bits, draft draft and draft.

    While being on the subject of exits. You don't want to overcook it. Throttle control is key. One more thing. Slow in, fast out is the method of choice for this track. The faster curves and bends shouldn't be much of an issue if you nail the line and have a clear shot free from opponents.

    Sorry for going all "Yoda" on you here but as they say.. If you first don't succeed. Try, try again.

    Keep your cool and let the car speak to you.


    In essence: Be the car.

    :cheers:

    Just increase the TC a bit and maybe AS :) The Toyota TS030 forgives a lot so i'm sure you can do it :tup:

    The TS030 is a torque monster when that kers kicks in. It has one thing going for it tho,and that is downforce..

    Just tested the two FITT cars, Shaun.. As i suspected, the NSX and i got along like a duck to water. The mini cooper brought out the inner hooligan in me while giving me an evil grin on me face.. Had some funny races with both of them.

    I'll be on the lookout for more of your FITT tuned cars in the future.

    Well done m8.

    Thanks for the entertainment.

    :cheers:

    Gold on the new Seasonal GT500 Super Lap on Laguna Seca 14/08/14.

    Wicked tune Shaun...it really goes well on here....just had to change Drivetrain to 8.8.10 to stop wheel spin when acclerating out off corner and camber to 0.0 0.0.

    There are quicker times to be had with this tune...in the right hands..cheers mate...:bowdown:

    I have been using Anti Crash mode (SRF) and I have been flicking between 2-4 on TCS and 1 on ABS. I don't think the aids being increased will help me out. SRF does a little bit but its my lack of nurburgring talent that is costing me the gold on this one. I am going to keep practicing today though as I'm not at work.

    Thank you. Thats good to hear. Gotta wait and see what the testers make of this tune now :) The Mini Cooper is a barrel of laughs. I tuned it to be fun and thats what it was. It got some good reviews from the FITT testers too. That was a plus really. I loved the handling aspects that this particular tune has.

    Out of interest, did this tune win against the 600PP cars?

    Yep every time so far the tour of America races were the easy ones not tried on the seasonals think that will be harder for me anyways as I'm not that good a driver:)
    It does tend to lose out a little on acceleration compared to the ai but top speed and late breaking will see you to the finish line first:)

    Notes for tune:
    1. Add Aero Kit Type A
    2. Change wheels (if desired)
    3. Add power upgrades and apply power limiter
    4. Weight Reduction and add ballast
    5. Check PP and it should need the oil Changing. If your PP is out of range do not change oil and adjust power limiter to reach PP.
    6. Set gear box once all power upgrade and engine work has been completed.

    I wouldn't say fully back yet... I am really struggling to get a good setup on the GTO for the FITT Challenge. I mistakenly put CS tyres on a tune which should have been CM and now I'm having to strip back the car to eek all the grip of these less grippy tyres. :( Nightmare really.. never mind eh.

    @chrisspeed281 - What tune did you use for the 600PP SH time trial? I am trying to make a SH tune for a Pagani but the track is really really slippy and it is quite difficult to get the rear to stick to the track through the long, fast bends.

    I have regained my spot on top of the 600PP GT500 leaderboard for a few hours :) But have no worries Chris, I expect you'll be up there soon enough. Just finalising the Honda HSV-010 GT Base Model '12 tune and then ill publish it later. This seems to be the fastest GT500 car for this event going by the top alien guys.
