    You can be like JLo :sly:



    This is an easy drive around here. Have some fun pimping out the car and taking it for a time attack around Tsukuba. :tup:



    Viewing your T1 & T2 Lap Time Splits:





    • You need to make sure you save the 'Save Best Lap Replay' (ghost replay), not the 'Save Replay'.

    • To post your T1 and T2 Splits, simply post the sector times that are shown in the live timing monitor.
    • The WRS Fetchbot has been updated and will now add your splits together!

    Go on then, I'll start the ball rolling....

    5 laps, all allowed tuning parts, pretty much stock suspension setting (fully customisable suspension), LSD 5/11/5, brakes 0/10 ABS 1

    16.910
    21.174

    That was my best 1st sector of an albeit very short run. Did a much better 2nd sector on my last lap but ran wide on that final bend. This is kind of the opposite of week 1 but the 500 is a sweet little runner. My missus favourite car, surprisingly enough. :p

    Try tuning it. I did a setup for my test laps -

    Max Aero

    Front ride height max
    Rear Ride Height Min

    Front Springs, Dampers and ARB's - All Max

    Rear Springs, Dampers and ARB's - All Min

    Camber 2.0/1.0
    Toe 0/0

    LSD 8/10/5

    Drives a lot better that way. ;)


    I also setup the transmission with about 100 mph max speed and tuning for all the gears after doing the GT5 tranny trick. But don't have the PS3 on right now to tell you exactly what the settings were. Will post my full setup after I run a session later.

    I panicked a little bit, scrolling to the end without looking properly.
    Saw TT20 at the end and that one is closed already.
    Scrolled to the beginning again and there I found TT21. The right one ;)

    Haha yeah, that was a mad week mate. At the time of qualy I was well pleased with making D2 Bronze. I was D3 Bronze in Prologue. Then suddenly I'm in the top 10 with a D2 podium and well.... no-one was more surprised than me. :D

    Another 20 laps. Funny thing... no matter what I try with the suspension settings, the car doesn't seem any different, so I've left it at 0/0 ride height and just stiffened the springs a bit. Camber 2.0/1.0. Toe 0/0. 5 speed close ratio gear-box, min downforce. Not tried without a rear wing yet but will do that tomorrow.

    No prob "E" I'm sure there is a way to loosen this pile up...... :lol: When I get her all slipery I'll post the tail happy setup for those who like the tail happy trail :)

    The farmers plow says: :)

    T1: 17.310
    T2: 21.301

    ---------------------------------- Later on this evening :) ---------------------------------

    This little car has great fun potential, one of the funest runs around this little shot glass of a track I have ever had. Great call for the 3D3 program if it's ever run w/ Spa around the corner but still a great call "Kev"

    Previous week I did not have time to do a decent amount of laps, hope it goes better this time.

    First 16 laps with default lsd+suspension setup:

    17.054
    21.097

    Fun little bugger.

    I wonder 1) if rear aero is a good idea, I find it hard to throw it around like i want, and 2) more importantly, what color it should have.

    Update:
    17.021
    21.002

    Drastic change from the FGT. It's going to take me all week to get used to, just like last week. Here's my first splits.

    Well, I spend the money to fully tune my 500 as required. Get back to the GT Life screen and the server is undergoing maintenance.

    I guess this will have to wait until later.
