    Okay, I've decided to allow some people to join me. If you want, PM me and send me an example of your tuning skills, i.e. a tuned car.

    Yet you have not posted a single tune...

    Anyone else see a problem here?

    Yes. :cool:

    Go look at GME driftking and learn how to actually launch a garage. 19 tunes for a garage launch, still the biggest launch out of ALL the garages. :sly: You guys that do this "I'm gunna do this and that" make me laugh. :lol:

    Tunes at launch don't matter much. You can be great at first, but with time suck. I am an example of that in life: at first I used to study a lot, now I barely study (much like everyone I know). However, when someone does these kind of things, it makes me think that they won't progress at all, even with time (remember mazdman's "awesome" garage?).

    Guys, I'm still working out all the little cons and trying to maximise the pros. I like specialising in tunes that go up against race cars and win.

    True, but it's like falling off a bike too C-L, once you know how to do it, you can come back after many months off and get straight back into putting out atomic speed cars (like I have with my C5 ZR-1).

    That's what RJ & I were getting at. We feel it's going to be one of those things but I will hold with baited breath that driftking will come out very soon with some good cars for people to play with. :tup:

    You are right, though I worded myself incorrectly. What I meant is that you can put up a lot of cars at launch, but they may all suck. I would bet it's not your case, though.

    Hopefully it will be like that. But honestly, anyone who starts a garage without a single tune (and even makes posts for further tunes that may not even be posted) hasn't exactly started with the right foot.

    I started mine without a tune! I've been limiting my tuning... Trying to get better at it! All I was doing was front wheel drive cars, it was fun for awhile.... I then needed to go back to the drawing board, that I have. I'm getting ready to drop some more stuff, and I hope that will be somewhat of a hit!

    I wish this tuner a lot of luck, and one day maybe in the top 10 or so....!

    We all had our doubts about you too, Shoman. :p

    But now that we know you're not going anywhere we mostly take you seriously. Then again you were at least around to defend yourself if memory serves; this guy's been active but hasn't said anything here.

    Okay, I've decided to unleash my first tune.

    Originally meant for the JGTC (as it had c.500hp), after testing it against some friends at Motegi, we felt it was just too much for them. So, our good friend Ryo went up against some cars in the Dream Car Championship. He kicked their arses. But, we do recommend a bigger turbo if you're takng them on at the Test Course - remember, it has 489hp, not 589.

    Parts required:
    Oil change
    3D Type DB Wing (30/30)
    Racing exhaust
    Racing brakes
    Brake balance controller (Front 7, Rear 7)
    Port polish

    Power: 229hp/8200rpm
    Torque: 202.66Nm/7500rpm

    Backstreet? What do you mean by backstreet? Well, we mean a tune done to a budget. Our model was a 10km special, but we think it can work on high mileage cars as well. Here in Ireland, we get so many shameless attempts to make a stock Civic look like a Type R. It makes me sick. Knowing their owners can't afford expensive tuning, we built this car to a budget. Well, tuning is really expensive in GT4! So, we've built it to a Cr.30,000 budget. The result? We knocked 8 seconds off its time as stock at Suzuka West.

    ---Parts---
    Racing exhaust
    Racing brakes
    NA Tuning Stage 1
    Racing chip
    Weight Reduction Stage 1
    Wing (Front 30, Rear 9)
    Triple clutch
    Racing flywheel
    Oil change
    OZ 028 rims (optional)
    Semi-racing suspension
    ----------------------

    Springs - 6.1/3.8
    Height - 104mm
    Dampers - 10/5

    Ah, the humble RPS-13 Silvia. We decided to see if we could get it aroud Tsukuba faster than a Nissan Skyline GT-R R34 M-Spec Nur. Goddamn, what a mouthful! The Skyline registered a 1'02.9xx. Our first time with the Silvia registered a 1'08.3xx (with only a non-adjsuted wing and an oil change, to bump it up to 213hp). But the laptimes quickly tumbled until we hit our target - and then some, with a 1'02.5xx. So we recommend it for anyone taking on the Japanese Car Championship, but not for the All Japan GT Championship. Unless you have the name Michael Schumacher and you're from Huerth Hermuelheim. Cost: Cr.30,650.

    ---Parts---
    Racing exhaust

    Racing chip
    Triple clutch

    Stage 1 Turbo

    Oil Change
    Straight Type BS Wing (Front 30/Rear 30)

    That's technically an RPS13. ;) PS13 is a proper SR20 Silvia, RS13 is a CA18 powered 180SX, S13 is a CA18 Silvia.

    Special Announcement!

    I have decided to do requests. For every decent review, I will provide a tune. Just don't make stupid requests, like "I wanna 6 min Honda Civic Type R on the 'Ring." Not gonna happen. If the review is "This car is awesome!" or "This car is crap!" and not much else, I will not bother making a tune for you. Constructive criticism is okay, e.g. "this car needs more grip" or "lengthen the gear ratios, it could use better acceleration". I'm fine with constructive criticism.

    At Katana Tuning, I think that to prove your prowess as a true tuner, you must produce a fully tuned Skyline GT-R R34. The base model is a Nissan Skyline GT-R R34 V-Spec II Nur. After weeks of refinement, this car can now lap Tsukuba in the 0'48-9 region on R3's and in the 0'46-7 region on R5's. Not bad for a 8-year old Datsun, huh? :sly: Following a B-Spec test at the Nurburgring against other fully-tuned Skylines, the Vader Skyline came out on top by nearly 6 seconds, with a 6'20.397. We will not name those who failed to beat it, but I'm pretty sure that my 1,056hp Skyline from GT3 would be no match for it.

    ---Parts---
    3D Type CB Wing (Front 30/Rear 33)
    Oil change
    Racing exhaust
    Racing brakes
    Brake balance controller (Front 3/Rear 3)
    Port polish
    Engine balancing
    Displacement increase
    Racing chip
    Triple clutch
    Racing flywheel
    Carbon driveshaft
    Fully Customisable Transmission
    First set it to default, then set it to Auto 15, then set the final to 3.260, and then adjust individual gears.
    1st - 3.224
    2nd - 2.209
    3rd - 1.605
    4th - 1.264
    5th - 1.066
    6th - 0.935
    Fully Customisable Suspension
    (Front/Rear)
    Springs - 9.5/7.5
    Height - 86/100
    Damper bound - 4/6

    Camber - 3/1.5
    Toe - -2/-1
    Stabilisers - 3/4
    Stage 5 Turbo
    Racing Intercooler
    Weight reduction stage 3
    R3 Tires

    Make sure you wear a helmet...

    Sorry, no can do. That requires parts which will break your budget just on their own. Also, I don't tune drifters. My reactions usually spin any potential drifters out.
    Please don't double-post. There's an edit button in the bottom-right corner of each post.

    On which Pace did your BOB do this 6´20 in the Skyline?

    I let BOB drive on Pace 4.Everytime he spun at Brünnchen and ended in 6´24 or 6´25 region.

    I did it at pace 3. Pace 4, as you said, makes him spin out a few times. I don't consider myself a "Ringmeister", my hands are too twitchy. Blame the Red Bull.

    Touge Monster S2000

    What better to announce my return to the tuning world than with the Amuse S2000. Ladies and gentlemen, it will wipe the floor with the Subaru Impreza and Mitsubishi Evo rally cars.
