    Don't worry, some of the drivers in that field had roughly the same skill set :dopey:

    Careful with that one, she's mind bogglingly fast but takes a bit of getting used to :tup:

    I had to stop by and say that this was one awesome car. @fordracer got it spot on with his review in the shootout thread. This really is a bit special.

    I've tried a few of your tunes before, I've even ran a lot of miles in some of them. But this was different, I was caught off guard despite you're warning about blipping the throttle and found myself in a tyrewall facing the wrong way.:banghead: My first though was, I've hit the wrong tab, my second thought was, Did he enter a drift tune for a laugh :lol:

    But I stuck with it for a few laps and slowly it all started to make sense. There were others in the shootout that I felt really confident going into corners with, that punished you if you got to confident. This was the opposite. By the time I'd figured the entry out the rest was easy. The car offered so much support and I felt the more I pushed it the better it got. It feels like a big heavy Italian Supercar, it sounds like a big heavy Italian Supercar and it looks like a big heavy Italian Supercar but she dances like a ballerina.

    An utterly surprising and fantastic tune. Hat's off.:cheers:

    PS. Hope you don't mind but I've taken the liberty to nominate it as tune of the week too.:)

    What a wonderful review, thank you so very much :cheers:

    That is exactly what I like to hear from people who take the time to drive my cars. I like to build a car that rewards people for pushing harder than they thought they could and I hope they can come away a more confident and better driver and be able to take those lessons into what ever they drive next. :tup:

    thanks... wow
    would it be OK to put on the Custom wing that you can get? (also does a custom wing make a car semi-premium... hmm.. or are they gonna premium some GT4 cars...)

    edit: This thing just beat a stock STi '94 around Nurb GP-D. It is quite some car.
    Seriously, and I really mean this: Mazda should hire you. This car felt like I want the Mazda 2 MPS to feel like. It didn't feel like the stock one (a van). It didn't feel like the Axela 23S or Mazdaspeed 6. It felt alive and colourful. Thankyou so much. Also BTW your car is at the top of my leaderboard right now:

    Personally I don't think you'd gain anything by putting a wing on it, it would just increase drag and lead to understeer at high speed. If you are fitting a wing for looks then set the downforce to the lowest :tup:
    I was pleasantly surprised with how quick and fun this car was and I'm glad you like it to :cheers:

    Might put the wing on for fun and if it makes the car handle bad I will remove it again :cheers:

    It won't have a massively bad effect, it just gives the car extra wind resistance and extra rear grip at speed that it doesn't need as a front wheel drive. As long as you set the downforce to the minimum level you should barely notice a difference at all.
    Its your car so feel free to run it how ever you like, I'm just a bit of a purist in the pursuit of speed so anything that's not useful to those ends gets thrown out the window :lol: :tup:

    @DolHaus, I'm embarrassed to admit that I don't think I've ever driven one of your tunes. :O Perhaps I did when I was very new to GT6 & GTP, but I don't remember specifically using a tune of yours. If you had to recommend a single tune, or two, to a fellow GTP'er which tunes would you suggest I try first? I'm a big fan of sports cars. MR drivetrain is my preferred layout followed by FR. I do not like FF cars at all. :lol: So, if you could only submit 2 tunes to showcase your garage, which two would you submit? I'd like to give them a shot... :tup:

    You've driven my XKR-S fairly extensively (camber experiments) :lol:

    I feel my latest work is always my best, I like to constantly adjust my tuning technique and learn new stuff so my approach is never the same from one car to the next (that and the havoc updates can play with setups). For this reason I will always choose something more recent.

    My general approach is to push drivers and change the way drivers think about and approach cars so to you I shall recommend the Diablo and the Mazda2.
    The Diablo because its extremely pure, its damned fast but it doesn't take prisoners or flatter mistakes, it will take you to the very ragged edge of what's possible but only if you are prepared to go with it and learn how she likes to dance. A car without compromise, made to be as fast as it can be with little concept of forgiveness :mischievous:
    The Mazda2 because its an FF but still a massive amount of fun and very competitive at spec. I'm really not an FF type of guy either, I much prefer oversteer to understeer any day of the week but I really enjoyed the way the little Mazda attacks every turn. The car is a lot more fun (IMO) on the stickier SH tyres as you can just throw it into the corners and know it'll stick no matter how stupid you get. Hopefully this will change how you feel about the drive train, maybe find some fun in the little ass dragger :lol:

    (Runners up: My Elise type 72 is worth a look if the Diablo is more extreme than your tastes, and my R33 Skyline is a lot of fun for a 4WD)

    OMG. The Jaguar was your tune?! See how brain dead I am?! :lol: That car is excellent! :tup: Granted, we drove it on RH tires, but I'm sure it will drive just as good on SS tires and frankly, I think it should be on RH tires as it IS a race car setup through and though. Well, don't I feel foolish... :O I don't know why, but I thought that XKR-S tune was from a different garage. Yeah...that car is no joke!

    I'll have to take a look at you Diablo & R32 Skyline tunes. If they're even close to as good as the Jaguar they'll be awesome tunes... Maybe I'll even try the Elise Type 72. I don't think I own that model yet, so it'll be a good excuse to buy one. Thanks for the quick response... :tup:
