    So awhile back I put together a tune and shared it on here to help people gain credits and xp as fast as possible. While the 15 lap Blue Moon Race in GT League’s Professional Series is still the fastest method, I recently revamped my setup and I’m here to share it with you guys.

    The setup does not necessarily require the use of CSA or TC but I would highly recommend throwing CSA on Strong just so you can relax and drive. If you find that you’re sliding a little more than you would like, go ahead and throw the TC on 5... 0 straight to 5 seems like a drastic jump but trust me 5 TC with this car goes almost unnoticed. It stabilizes the car significantly but you have little to no loss in speed. I was 1 second slower with TC 5 in a 15 lap race.

    N300 = 375,000 Credits and 8,250 XP

    11:30.796 (Personal Best)

    This is great - thanks.

    I find that the Gr. 2 races are pretty good for mining too and a bit more fun than the oval. A clean race bonus (which is pretty easy) and you can get 300,000 pretty easily. It will probably take you 15 minutes versus 10 though.

    I am using the Alpine A110 1600S N200, the best I can get is a second place at the Blue moon Bay Speedway. If there is a La Ferrari or Veyron in the field you can not win. If you win the race you will get 405000 credits and 8910 XP points.

    If I can go around the last corner flat out, I will win using the Alpine but the I got to get the last corner right.
    Can you please help me out with this car setup so that I can go flat out around the last corner, or is it best is to stay with the X-Bow ?.

    I tested the Alpine myself and I lost to the Veyron twice by less than 1 second... I will toy with it again another day and see if I can get it there. For now it’s the X-BOW :(

    With the Alpine you have to be on the limit all the time and without making mistakes, but with X-Bow there is no problem winning and you do not have to try hard.

    Thanks @uMayBeSeated, been using your tune a while now :tup:.

    If people wants a break from the KTM, the old Ford GT40 detuned to N300 will get the same reward, but take ~25 seconds longer race time (it can still beat LaFerrari).

    Though a simple tune is needed to make it easy enough drive and avoid losing the clean race bonus. I have no clue about tuning but managed to stabalize the car a bit and using it now for a daily race grind. Perhaps @uMayBeSeated can make a proper tune for it? :)

    Looks like he has full ballast added (1583kg :eek:) in those screenshots, which give the car very different handling traits. A lot more stability.

    Never mind, That's the weight in pounds showing in his screenshots. I don't know why those numbers are different.

    Personally I don't care for the X-Bows handling at minimum weight, so I tend to use it mostly with the weight set to 900kg to rid it of some of the twitching. It can still win BMB at 900kg

    Hey, I’m really not sure? I’ve put my setup on 3 different accounts and I always get the same numbers... check the suspension again and the tires should be RHard in the Front but RSS in the Rear. Hope that helps.

    Good effort but is there any other car we can use besides the X-Bow that will win?

    I absolutely hate that car and cannot drive it well even with the setup posted so if there's another car could someone suggest
    and post it please?

    It's a light car with good power to weight ratio, plus with a handicap bonus. Hence why it's the car of choice to use for farming Cr. and XP on BMB as it easily beats the Veyron and LaFerrari.
    Ease of use and time is of the essence whenever you're farming.
    The tail can whip out if you make sudden direction changes, but you can catch and correct it.
    Nice and smooth does the trick. :tup:

    Tried the Alpine too. I think it's impossible to win in it.

    I'm at level 46 and thinking about grinding (or not grinding) to lvl50. I don't think it's as much about the time as it's about being bored to death. Does anyone have an idea how to make the grind atleast a little bit of fun with a decent payout?

    Japanese GT Race (Gr.2). 200,000 for a win, and 300,000 for a clean race. Pretty easy to do a clean race since most of the slower cars are GR.3 and you'll just need to be patient to get around them. AI can be aggressive at times, and even bumped me, but I still got a clean race. I think as long as you keep it on the track you'd be fine. Much more enjoyable than the BB race with the Xbow

    Glad to hear! Not sure what was happening with your other one.

    Try putting TC on 5 and Counter Steering on Strong. It’s a race against the AI to make money so you’re not here to impress anyone without aids. As for other cars... GT40, F40, Lambo Contach or whatever... those 3 can be used for this race as well. You may have to do N400 though to maintain patience and get the Clean Race Bonus though. The X-BOW is by far the fastest currently, and that’s why it’s the go to! Try using the aids before dumping it.

    I'm using the mclaren f1 with RSS and "nerfed" to N400 - it takes me about 11;30 to finish the race - if it is clean you will get 310K credits - yes, it is 65K shorter than the credits you'll get from clean race with X-Bow, but I hate both the grind and the KTM and the mclaren is a nice car to drive so it makes it at least more bearable.

    It may be because of a update a few month ago, anyway your X-Bow setup is very good with a wheel :cheers:, and I only have to brake slightly in the first corner and it is so easy to drive. thanks :).

    Thanks for that @uMayBeSeated. I haven't been able to win Blue Moon at N300 until this. It's brillant. I love how you can take turn 3 without lifting, or maybe just slightly if there's another car in the way. :cheers:

    A clean race would have been easy if the Veyron hadn't hit me from behind and sent me into the wall in turn 1.

    You’re welcome mate! I play with a controller, so I was wondering how it felt on a wheel.

    You’re welcome, Glad you like it! I’m working on getting an N200 there but it’s crazy hard...

    With the Alpine, I need to go flat out in the last corner nearly every lap to win as long as the La Ferrari or Veyron are not in the field, but I just keep on trying to get the last corner right.

    Until you add to that.... "But it's only a third of the way to lvl 50" :lol:

    But it also means that you could make lvl 50 in 9 days if you can put up with the gruelling boredom of BMB for all those hours. :crazy: :sick:
