    @shaunm80 2 for 2. Well done glad you liked my second effort more, I spent considerably more time on it. If you aren't busy give it a go on Suzuka, it's a blast there.

    @Bass Addict Shame you couldn't bond with my lovely lady in time but uh good job nevertheless.


    Waiting on the rest of you...:tup:

    This tune did haunt me as I should have been better at driving it and as you say our styles must be different. It is sad because I owned a 1982 911SC for 10 ten years and absolutely loved to drive the car on all of the forgotten back roads in Southern Ohio. The car in GT5 & GT6 is completely different from what I remember...

    A little tough for us mortals? :lol:

    This tune shows I have a long, long way to go. I have used your tunes on several seasonal races and loved them and I was so looking forward to this tune, but this car smacked me HARD. I am up for some coaching though...you don't live in Southern Ohio by chance?

    Wow! Thank you very much the review! :bowdown: I do everything I can to make a stable tune, as it's my driving style. The wild tunes are tough for me to handle. As for the brakes, I am still a peddle masher myself, especially when it comes to the brakes! Which is why I love these FITT events cuz I get to use ABS! Thanks again! :cheers:

    Thanks for the review @Bass Addict:tup: The third time you see below, the 1.29.197, is Rotary Junkie's tune. Pretty sure there's a 28 in there somewhere.

    My tune can be found here. Good luck, I did my best with it though the settings may look odd. But each was done for a reason, maybe insanity but a reason non-the-less.

    And yes, Rigidity Improvement has been installed!

    Review:
    I struggled a little with this car. The brakes felt non existent as it took forever to whoa the car up. On acceleration the rear would stay planted until the higher RPMs, there it felt as if the back end just lifted off the ground and I lost rear grip. High concentration and throttle control is needed.:nervous:

    Review:
    The red outside front tire on corner entry made it difficult to drive...at first. I can only guess that the loss of grip stems from the high front camber? On acceleration the car seemed to have a slight push up and off the racing line. Now that had me really looking at the camber. So I changed my approach to corner entry. By turning into the corner a little later and changing my arc, I was able to aim for the apex and apply full throttle with confidence; finding comfort and speed in the process. Unfortunately I couldn't change my line through the last section which is where it lost some time to the leaders. For a rushed tune, it's not bad.;)

    Review:
    Seriously??? I'm going to regret this.... But a TotW car.:banghead::lol: One of the best tunes for a car well known to misbehave that I have ever driven in GT6. The agility in this car to be able to search for lines is great, being able to do it on a track like Trial Mountain is unbelievable. A insanely fast and easy to drive tune that will remind you from time to time that you are driving a Yellowbird, but that is what kept the smile on my face. This car is now painted obnoxious green and sitting in my garage.:tup::tup:

    Review:
    Lacked overall front grip. It would slide on corner entry, when throttle was applied it would push through the center and then break loose on exit. It makes for a fast car when you are on it and have your rhythm down. Darn aliens!:crazy:

    Review:
    Long gears used to minimise wheel spin hurt the braking distance. And I know this car wasn't set up for automatic transmission, but once I learned how to manipulate it, I could time my cornering and achieve a good controlled launch. This was the most consistent BTR lap after lap.:tup:

    Review:
    Snappy loose that leads to over-corrections. Power oversteer unless completely straight, but when it is straight it squats and launches. Outside tires turned red from entry through mid corner. Knowing when to let off the throttle on crests was a huge help in slipping through some of the tricky sections.:cheers:

    Review:
    High brake numbers, but again a car that needs more room to slow down. Was difficult at first, but after about the 3rd lap I stopped fighting the car, found my marks, and with a little more throttle control I was able to get around the track. There was an annoying inside rear tire grip loss on acceleration, but it seems to work as it ate up the last section.

    Review:
    The most predictable (and I'm using that term loosely) of the BTRs. Most of the track I knew exactly what to expect a little push and some sliding. The weird thing was the backstretch... The stiffer suspension used to make it ease through the turns and assist putting the power down, made it hop on the bumps even in a straight line. It did catch me out a few times!:lol:

    Review:
    Loves to come unhinged. The hatred for crests and overall misbehavior made it a tough one to tame and led to a slower time through the last section. Especially once when I sneezed and it led to one of the most spectacular crashes I've ever been a part of! But I'm not going to hold that against the car or tuner.:D

    Review:
    Felt heavy but the balance made it very easy to drive. The harder you pushed this car the more unpredictable it becomes. This is mainly down to the turn in understeer that can have you misjudging racing lines and as soon as you try and correct, your turn is blown. I also want to add a welcome and hope you are enjoying the fray fun.:tup:

    After this set of tests, I'm looking forward to going to a normal track next weekend in the RGT's. Keep up the great job tuners!:cheers:

    Thanks @Lionheart2113 for the review and it was rushed but I am happy, and it was a bit hard to tune and even the RUF cars in Project Cars are hard to tune as well.

    It's still a decent tune. I just had to go where the car was comfortable. With that being a rushed tune, would love to see what you would have done with more time!

    It was different, but it forced me to drive harder into the turn so the final downshift happened a split second before I picked up the throttle. Oh and not a single red lap in yours.:tup:

    Was a joy to drive. The extra weight helped the stability, but when I wanted to really open it up, that weight seemed to move around. I should have strapped it down better.:dopey:

    Thanks for the review. I am in awe of your lap time. A 1.29.958 is amazing and way beyond my skill level. :bowdown: Thank you for testing these cars and I am glad that you enjoyed the experience. You even survived a massive crash to write these reviews! Out of interest, did you manage to record the crash sneeze incident? It would be entertaining to see indeed.

    Great job and thanks again.

    I think that this class of cars is going to see a few switches of position for both Lap time and DC. A lot of fast times coming out and a few different tastes in tunes. Great to see variety and a close knit contest for these wonderful cars.

    There wasn't anything to record.:irked: It was one of those crashes that the car flips at 1000mph and then all you see is fuzziness, rectangles, and other polygons. I seriously thought something happened to my PS3 as I saw nothing but a screwed up screen for almost a minute so I hit reset.:ouch:

    A difficult car on a difficult track. Very hard to please everyone, but you aren't too far off.:tup:

    My steering inputs are too harsh for this car. It needs a driver with finesse. But I am happy that I did not let you down on lap times!:cheers:

    Somewhere around half of my cars have a tendency to, erm, point out surface imperfections :lol: Oddly, the softer setups I tried hated curbs more, likely because the front end lost less grip than the rear did when both inside tires got upset.
