    No worries at all, you deserve your lap time and DC with the tune you produced. Also, I have excellent track knowledge at GP/F as it was the same track that the M Power challenge was run on so I know each and every corner very well indeed. I have run many hundreds of laps around that place which helps I guess.

    Also, Did you mix up open track day class and supersport class? 2.08 sounds like a Suzuka time to me. :)

    Interesting, I noticed exactly the same pattern in times with body rigidity installed

    Good patterns, bad patterns? What do you notice? I guess you mean that NonRI was in the 2.02s and the RIs were all in the 2.03s?

    Bad patterns I suppose, I built two cars to compare the non-RI vs. RI and the car was always slower with RI no matter how it was set up

    What about stability though? did RI make the car easier to drive at the limit and improve handling or did it have no discernible difference?

    Not really, the car felt more solid but seemed to have less grip. Very similar to running overly stiff springs but without the increased responsiveness

    No worries, one question though, why the italian translation links? :)
    Never mind, they have gone now.

    Well, if the times say I'm quicker at Trial than you are, I guess we're even for how badly you'd murder me at GVS :sly:

    Doubt that'll be the case though. :p

    That's a good point about being even, but it all depends on your time because you are quick when you don't suffer through a bad tune:scared:.... And that lap time would be????

    Thank you for the review, and I have to precise that my car is a replica, except the weight distribution. I had two versions, one with the 40:60 and this with 43:57, and I thought it would be better and more grippy... I failed another time ! :lol: :lol:

    Not necessarily. I am only one tester, you have more reviews to come in still. Who knows what they will think? :)

    Would you accept to drive another version of my car, not for test I know the rules but to see if you could like more ? :)

    How you ended up on this conclusion?
    For alternative view, car setup made with mint body, never touched on walls, or always repaired after is always going faster than same setup after wall hit/touch.
    Car built on RI and mint body is really vulnerable for collisions, meaning it handling suffers more if body is wrecked. Under this kind of situation your claim stands, but then you're already doing something wrong, you have wrecked "loaned"-test car and blaming fails on tune what you have caused by wrecking body.. ;)

    If they are posted, they are final tunes so you are free to do whatever with them.

    Old School RUF Class Testing

    This was an eye opening experience for me and I covered all of the emotions I can have with driving a car in GT6...from a feeling of pure bliss to :banghead::censored::censored::censored::banghead:. I have agonized over so many of these tunes to find my DC scoring...what are the top three cars that I want to drive again? Please note that I drive cars in the order they are posted and not in the order presented here...

    So, here goes...I drive with a wheel and use manual transmission:

    @TheInfamousJEW6
    Best Lap Time - 1:32.011 (YB with improved rigidity installed)
    DC - 9.4
    Tune Comments - I honestly forgot I was playing a game and disappeared into driving! Very stable tune that felt secure around the entire track...curbs were no problem. The long straight was very stable and I could control the car over the little jump at the start of the third tunnel. The brakes took a lap or two to sort out as they had a "soft" feel and I had to really get my foot into the pedal and hold it. It seemed a bit slow in acceleration along with the soft brakes caused me a bit of trouble early but I adapted quickly because the car was so much FUN! I liked the fact I could toss this around a bit...I left quite a bit of time on the track because in a weird way I was distracted by the car's beauty and the experience of driving it. :tup:

    @Soren Jacquet
    Best Lap Time - No tune submitted
    DC - N/A
    Tune Comments - Nil

    @hall90
    Best Lap Time - 1:36.749 (YB with improved body rigidity installed)
    DC - 8.0
    Tune Comments - I honestly don't know what to say here as I felt like I forgot how to drive. I couldn't get after the throttle or brakes hard as well as when I tried to reduce the throttle to fast, I lost control of the car. I ended up short shifting and keeping a slight amount of input to the throttle at all times. I had to alter the way I drive to have any chance with this car and to post a clean lap time. I felt like we were fighting like an old married couple all around the track. I couldn't adapt to this and that is on me...:O

    @Motor City Hami
    Best Lap Time - 1:30.569 (YB with improved body rigidity installed)
    DC - 10.0
    Tune Comments - JUST WOW...a perfect driving experience. After a couple of get to know each other laps it was off to the races. I took your "just mash the throttle and hope for the best!" to heart and had lap after lap of "blue" times and pure joy. I know I can take this car out again and get into the 1:29's... Well you know what they say: "Once you go black, you'll never go back!" Indeed!! :bowdown::bowdown:

    @ugabugaz
    Best Lap Time - 1:31.687 (YB with a stock body)
    DC - 9.3
    Tune Comments - This was the only YB tune without added weight and with the stock body without any improvements. WOW...can you throw this car around the track! I LOVED the transmission setup and the acceleration...I finally got my wish for a bit more acceleration and I am not ready for it! This tune felt so fast in and out of the three tunnels. Each lap was a bit of an adventure though and I had quite a few red laps but I was hooked and I wanted to hold on for dear life! This would be a great TT car that would require a big commitment from me in time to unlock all the speed/time that is there. This is the super hot woman (and she knows it) at the party that is completely out of my league! :tup:

    @steve nfs
    Best Lap Time - 1:30.715 (BTR '86 with body rigidity installed)
    DC - 9.7
    Tune Comments - This was not love at first sight but I paid attention to your tune advice and drove accordingly. All of a sudden we began to bond and the "blue" laps were coming each and every lap. I had some awkward shift points out on the track and decided to shift with my hands and ears (so to speak)...one corner it hurt me but on another I picked up a significant amount to time. The part of the track between tunnel two and tunnel three killed me as I struggled to find a good line with speed. I felt so stable everywhere else on this track but here. This is a car I want to get right back out on the track with!! :tup:

    @xande1959
    Best Lap Time - 1:31.794 (BTR '86 with stock body)
    DC - 9.0
    Tune Comments - Braking was a challenge and I had to "attack" the brake pedal and hold it down but once I got my head around it, I was enjoying the car very much! I needed quite a few laps to help me settle in. I did my best to shift a bit early at 7000 rpm but that led to some awkward points at certain parts of the track. A very stable car that even handled the little jump at the start of tunnel three very well...this felt so very fast exiting the tunnel and on to the start/finish line. I left a fair amount of time on the track with this tune and once again that is on me. :tup: :O


    @shaunm80
    Best Lap Time - 1:32.783 (YB with body rigidity installed)
    DC - 8.9
    Tune Comments - I enjoyed this tune and car. This car was so stable and I could put down lap after lap with consistent times (for me). I felt so confident and in control of this car. It was a complete joy to drive and look for ways to improve my line, braking points and acceleration. I felt like I needed a bit more acceleration at several points around the track but I am not sure if I could handle the YB with more speed. I was a bit surprised that I wasn't faster with it as I never felt like I left time on the track with this car. Again, I think I was distracted by the car's beauty! :tup:

    @Rotary Junkie
    Best Lap Time - 1:31.088 (BTR '86 with body rigidity installed)
    DC -9.3
    Tune Comments - Another fun car to drive and I took to it straight away. As I settled in and started to improve on my lap times, the rear end came alive but I was able to control it and it added to the fun factor. I had some spots on the track where it was awkward on the shift points as I was trying to follow your 7000 rpm recommendation. I ended up riding a gear a little longer or short shifting to help me feel a better "flow" throughout the track. I left a lot of time out on the track and I know this car is ahead of me. :O I am in awe of your time in the 1:29's :bowdown:

    @coryclifford
    Best Lap Time - 1:35.113 (BTR '86 with body rigidity installed)
    DC - 8.0
    Tune Comments - "550pp tune from hell" and "I hope you come out alive!" Cory, you were not kidding!! I felt like I had to steer the car with my right foot. I honestly thought I forgot how to drive or that my wheel connection from the PS3 had wiggled off...I couldn't even make it to the start/finish line without crashing! I visited quite a few new places around this track and I am at a loss on why this car was impossible for me to keep in a straight line. The car was talking to me in German and I was yelling at it in English...we just couldn't bond. You were my favorite tuner from the Sport Class and I know you spent quite a bit of time on this, but as my Father use to say: " Son, you have gone from the Penthouse to the Outhouse." :lol: I am truly sorry but I am not ready for this tune...:guilty::O:eek:

    @reefer
    Best Lap Time - 1:31.414 (BTR '86 with body rigidity installed)
    DC - 9.3
    Tune Comments - I am in AWE that you can do a 1:29.156 in this car! I am unable to unlock that time but I had so much fun driving this car...just enough "tail wag" for my liking. I had a hard time with the section of track between the second and third tunnels...I never felt fast going through there with awkward shift points...I lost a good time here on several laps. Your car was the best on the small jump at the start of the third tunnel...it sort of "hopped" right to the perfect line to exit the tunnel quickly and continue on to the start/finish line. All in all, a very cool ride and I would be delighted to spend more time improving my skills with this tune! :tup:

    Thank you for the review. I am pleased to hear you enjoyed this tune. My tunes are generally more stable than they are fast so I am not surprised with your comments. Great job testing by the way. :)

    Haha! Another great response to my car. Makes me smile. I guess it's a little tough but it can really whip out fast laps when it all sinks in. And I thought Porsches and RUF were to be driven with the throttle pedal? :D

    @Bass Addict thanks for the review, but I found my tune was good and a few seconds faster than your time, well it must be my driving style.

    Bolded: Pretty much the biggest thing I was aiming for without compromising best-case lap time much. The "fast" setup I had at one point required a lot of what you saw with @hall90 's car, which is to say "correct early Porsche driving etiquette". My finalization process consisted of getting rid of as much of that as possible while still being able to get into the 29s, though the drive to get there does require adjusting entry with the throttle to keep the tail in check in a few spots.

    The shift point suggestion was determined 100% by straight-line performance, there are areas where it's best ignored as you noticed; I couldn't personally retest the gearbox in manual to find points where it was better left in a lower gear than the 7k shift point but I'm sure there are several.

    However, seeing Hami's YB doing the work it is, well, I need to try harder next time it seems. :D

    Not all testers get on with every tune. I got on with your tune but then again we have similar styles in tunes. A few more results to come in mate. You can always PM me and @Otaliema if you need to.
