    Tried out the FTO for ya. R1, stock. Caught up with the A4 touring car after appx 2mins of racing. (the TT is a bit sharper, so maybe 2.5-3mins for that one I guess if it starts in pole pos.)
    1. lap in 7:28. 7s lead. This car is not as good a driving experience as the FORD RS200 Rally Car '85 was.

    Figured that would happen. How far off? What kind of lap times were you getting?

    Well, you've got my two recommendations. I won't repeat them again :sly:

    Right... but the NSXes tires didn't last!

    AIUI, the AI is getting about 7'22 per lap in the M3 GTR, although when I was testing the Altezza Touring Car, the Audi TT was right on my tail w/7'19s.


    So, let's just say 7'20 if the TT is there.


    So... like I was saying before, there's two basic ways to approach this championship and get competitive races.

    1) Road car w/little to no downforce that's a lot of faster than the competition BUT you'll pit a lot.

    In this case, say you pit 2x as much as the AI on R1s or R2s (IMO, don't bother with R3s). So, say you pit on every THIRD lap and they pit on every SIXTH lap.

    You need to make up the 30-40s every other pit. That means you need a car that can turn a 7'00 to 7'05 lap.

    2) Race car w/appropriate downforce and Pits every 5-6 laps on R1s (hopefully 6!).

    In this case, you just need to match the AIs laptime of about 7'20 lap.


    Just because the NSX got better lap times, doesn't mean you would LOSE! You only went TWO laps with the NSX before you had to pit, right? Say you could sustain 7'10s with the NSX. But you lost btw 1'00 and 1'20 every 6 laps. That means the AI has an extra 20 seconds PER LAP it can work with.

    In other words, if the AI is getting 7'25 laps, it'll beat your NSX.


    Make sense?

    And what were you lap times?

    If you could get 7'05, you'd have a good shot.

    In front... until you had to pit, 3 laps before the TT did, yes?

    So if you still really like the NSX, you could consider
    a) buying a wing to get some downforce and see if'll make the tires last long enough (doubtful, probably get you an extra lap)
    b) buying an extra Turbo and see if you can get your lap times down to the 7'05 range.

    You can buy the fastest IS200 and walk through the Altezza Race.

    No, you don't need to upgrade the prize car you receive... apart from buying R1 tires that is.
