    This looks great, too bad I will be away most the week but I will put some time into it today and hopefully have some splits to report.

    Well all I am back in play! I got a PS3 for Christmas from the gf. Total surprise. Work has been crazy and I had to drop out of the SGT and would only have time for WRS. See you all back in about two weeks when I get all the races worked out.

    Yes, this is definitely an enjoyable combo.

    I ran a few laps with my default tune then made some changes to the tire compound and gearing. The changes allowed me to jump ahead of the ghost nicely.

    Power +5
    Weight 99
    Tires S1 S2
    RH -15 -15
    Rate 4 4
    Damper 4 4
    Camber 0.5 1.0
    Angle 30
    TC 1
    Final 4.355

    T1: 1'00.898
    T2: 1'51.450

    @ mtbiker157 ~ The PS3 is a perfect Christmas gift, glad to see you here!

    Good one Mods! :tup:
    Suzuka 550 PP is a popular event, so I'm thinking everyone is getting lot's of lap time in and the competition will be intense.
    One thing I have noticed though, the weight will default back to 100 when you exit "online" and won't warn you if your PP is over 550 in free run.
    Good Luck and have fun.:)

    Sweet combo and nice challenge to master the oversteery Honda supercar thru the twitchy and treacherous (?) Suzuka. Again a question of character to jump in the new combo early on Sunday OR try & improve on the old one :)

    This combo might even be a prelude to the next online GTP event as the switch towards the actual online race is just a click away :lol:.

    [off-topic]Isn't anyone also like me disappointed that PD didn't surprise us with an appropriate Christmas gift in the form of a nice little update? :ouch: [/off-topic]

    It is a great combo for sure, thats a good point you make about making the next week a race online in the NSX, that would be great. As for dissapointed with no update. Im really enjoying the new events they gave us. :tup:

    My splits with s3/s3

    1'00.945
    1'51.851

    I am online for the past 4 days with the 550PP NSX and after 2 laps I beat my race laptime already.

    Despite the boost or RubberBand is gone there is a difference between Online and free run.

    Absolutely, I found that out with the Clio yesterday. There was a lot more slip in the car in the race as opposed to my testing in free run. PD needs to straighten that out.

    First go with my brand new xmas G25.... which is every bit as good as everybody says it is and smells like a new pair of shoes. :) Still practising with it but already showing improvement over the old DF EX.

    T1: 1'01.160
    T2: 1'52.597

    Love the NSX, great fun. :)

    This combination of an almost standard NSX on S3's at Suzuka is pretty much perfection as far as I'm concerned. It's such a joyous car to drive - so incredibly well balanced... I could run laps in this all day long :tup:

    59.448
    1'50.116

    Nice lap overall, just slightly spoiled by some oversteer coming out of the hairpin otherwise would have been in the 49's.

    Oh man I'm loving this G25... its still not gonna turn me into a virtual Senna but its a joy to use. Still practising but some improvement:

    T1: 1'00.579
    T2: 1'51.822


    I'll let the cramp ease a bit and have another bash later :)

    Good point, I think it might be a good idea to add this info to the 1st page.

    I'm going to take a break from playing GT4 (for the first time!) to give this a try, with my new G25 that I got for Christmas. The NSX was one of the first MR cars I tried to drive on Pro physics, in the "S" events. I remember trying to master lift-off oversteer for the first time!:nervous:...frustrating at first, but felt great when I got the hang of it.
