    The PAL Polyphonys are the same as two of the NTSC F cars (not sure which two)

    I could have participated in both anyway as I have access to the NTSC cars in my PAL game (although they appear to be Miras, but their aerodynamics and hitboxes are of the correct vehicles.)

    I think the 787B is going to dominate round 6

    It might, but it only goes up to 900HP. I believe the Vette/Viper go higher and I know the R390 goes up to 1100HP.

    Cheating, like many other region-specific vehicles.

    You can get the NTSC F1s by hacking your save file (Mira bodies however) But the other NTSC variations of cars such as Vitz instead of Yaris require porting of the actual body data. (Another example is the Esso/Exxon thing) The bodies for the other regional cars are in all games, but not the whole car.

    I'm probably going to take the 787B as I was delightfully surprised with it the last time I took it out for the purpose of writing a review for it.

    And since the Storm is available on the list, I would like to use this opportunity to ask: is it possible in GT5 or GT6 to adjust weight and power of the car to match it against traditional Le Mans cars, such as Viper GTS-R or Esperante GTR-1?

    In GT4 that was allowed in Arcade mode, but only up to -/+20%, if I recall correctly.

    You can remove up to 50% of the cars power and add up to 200KG in GT6

    So you can't reduce weight the same way as the power, at least in Arcade mode? What a shame, that would help the Storm to be more competitive. Ah...

    Jason, thanks for answering!

    Ill send my lap time tommorrow.

    Can I just tell my lap time? Or do I really have to send a picture of my lap time? Is because my camera is busy with video recording right now.

    I will put a temp lap on the leaderboard until proof of time. I'll have my lap in tomorrow too.

    If he submits a time without the proof I will add a temp time to the board til I get proof. Temp times to not get counted towards the leaderboard and no points are awarded for them.

    I think that you should validate the lap times...

    I think that the participants should submit their lap times in following format:
    Driver (name):
    Car:
    Lap Time:

    But I think that you should keep the lap times invalid until the participants send a picture of their lap times. What do you think?

    As long as the car and time is stated I will post a temp time until proof is given.

    *lol* Did you really think duplicating the same image a dozen times would help you get to the top?

    EDIT: I see some slight differences between some photos, he might have actually taken 8 separate photos of the same thing (in case the last wasn't clear enough? It wouldn't have made much difference, seeing the similarity between all of them).

    EDIT: Nevermind, first 8 photos are the same (my screen wasn't angled perfectly), so are the last 2.

    Another fun round, realized how adjusting rear rebound values can have great effect on eliminating understeer that appears once you switch back from rear end sliding to accelerating. Just level rear bound and rebound values and the car will no longer deliver that typical MR problem in uncomfortable manner.

    787B --- 1'04.293

    I'm on GT3 right now, but I won't submit the lap time yet: I'll need around 20 minutes to get the 787B... ;)

    The final round is live!

    @Harsk100 @Matej You are both tied in the standings. Whoever posts the fastest time out of you two is the winner.

    Okay. But I don't have the Formula Car yet.

    And you, @Matej?

    This is going to be fun, maybe Harsk100 and I could send you laps via PM so that neither of us use other's lap for benchmark? That seems fair way of dealing with the tie, but it is up to you to decide.
    I have two F1 models in my garage, not sure which one though. This could be very unfortunate situation for PAL players since they don't have F1 cars that go above 800 hp while NTSC drivers do have them. Maybe Jason could eliminate two F1 models that are overly overpowered.

    Oh, and congratulations to Harsk100 for beating the Apricot round!
