    Hey Killer and other racers. I used Killer's NASCAR setup and won all the the of the International A NASCAR races except the High Speed Ring and Willow Springs (though I think I can win this one with some more practice).

    These are the only two races in GT6 that I haven't finished yet so if anyone could help me with adjusting the tune(s) I would GREATLY appreciate it!!! Thanks in advance:cheers:!

    Incredible, just incredible. 17 second lead at Indy, I started nodding off. Wish I saw this before winning the nightmare that was Daytona.

    Great tune, used on all the races except Motegi, won with ease.

    Are all you guys referring to Killerjimbag's tune for the NASCAR races? I really hope so...I can't even make it to turn one on the Daytona course before being passed. I look forward to trying this tune....'cuz my tune sux eggs
    Oh yeah, one other thing....are you guys doing that 70% power limit adjustment? And if so, how much hp do you have in the car?

    hmm...pretty sure my Nastycar isn't 624 hp...in fact, I believe it's only at 568, roughly, at 70%. I haven't checked the 100% setting yet. I hate Nascar, which is why I haven't paid much attention to the settings but now I need to do those races so I get those damn stars and move on. Thanks for the 411.

    Change the oil and you will be at 624hp w/70%. Remember only the ovals are 70%, 100% can be used at the road races.

    Aaaaahhh....I did not know about the other races at 100%. I thought I did change the oil but I'll do it again just to be sure. Thanks again.

    Wow, thanks KJB! That was an awesome tune. I tried it out and beat all 3 "oval" tracks with ease on the first time. I can't seem to finish better than 2nd at Willow Spring and can barely finish 1 lap at The High Speed Ring. I keep getting tapped from behind and I spin out or, on the last turn before hitting the main straight, I spin out due to the rear of the car getting away from me. I'm going to have to figure that one out.
    But thanks again KJB, great tune!

    Put some aero on the rear for the road course's and adjust LSD,turn your final gear more right for road course's,I actually just got to doing the event as I haven't had time.Work,work,work.

    Thanks for the info. I think I left the aero's at the 200/400 setting for the oval courses. I'll have to double check that. As far as the LSD...I played around with it a bit but still had issues with the rear of the car coming out from underneath me. I adjusted the final gear some but probably not enough. The main issue is no matter how hard I try, I just can't seem to catch up to the first place car. I'm sure I'll figure it out eventually. Again, I can't thank you enough for that tune dude, great stuff. Not sure how you figured that tune out man, but damn it was good.

    Many,many years of racing online,bit from Nascar 2003 which is now IRacing,bit from GT5 and some pure luck.:dunce: As you decrease the HP you want to move final gear right.

    Not yet, don't really have the time,hate typing for one thing and my laptops are always being used by my wife and kids.I used to be called the 10 minute tuner in GT5,just a knack I guess.
    If you want a specific tune your best bet's would be one of these two fine gentlemen,they are pretty good at what they do and will help you out.If they don't have it send me a PM and I'll see what I can do for you.

    Thanks man, I really appreciate the info. I'll def go and check them out. It's been really frustrating finding tunes for the cars I have. Most of the tunes I'm finding are for high powered cars that I don't have. I've only got about 5 high powered rides right now.

    Ok...need some additional help here. I used KJB's tunes for the oval tracks in the series and had no problems. However, I can't, for the life of me, finish, let alone win, Willow Spring or the High Speed Ring. On Willow, I keep losing the rear of the car in corners. I'm not tromping on the gas or anything like that, but if I slow down to go around corners I lose enough ground that I can't catch up to first place. And as far as the High Speed Ring...I keep getting spun out by the AI...all the time. I can't seem to even finish the first lap without getting tagged from behind. I really need some help on the last 2 races. After trying both of these races over a dozen times each, and coming up short all the time, I'm really starting to lose my patience with this. Any advice would be much appreciated.

    Try these tunes in here...I would only add for the road course, is to short shift the ups...so...break before your turn....shift up so that you RPM's are not too high then feather the fuel around the turn....especially that elevated S if it still starts to slip out on you, let go of the fuel....the LSD set ups are VERY important as well, and turn off your TC, ABS to 1, two tops

    OH, I haven't looked at these tunes too much, I would also add you may need to soften up the rear springs for the road course

    I tried many times with this tune and I'm maxing out at 168 KPH. The cars fly by me and even drafting them doesn't increase my speed.Am I missing something?

    defiantly means something else entirely, the word you're looking for is definitely.
