The Porsche 911 Turbo 930 '81 Challenge: Run 25 laps at the Sardegna AII track and beat the very strong X-Bow R with a lightly modified Porsche 911 Turbo. Extra points if you can win the 25 lap race cleanly (which I have not yet been able to do with these restricted specs for the 911 Turbo). The basic specs for the 911 Turbo are as follows: --- HP=298 (101%) --- Wgt=2723 (95%) --- Tires=SH/SH The 25 lap race is run as a custom/arcade race at the Sardegna AII track with the following race criteria: --- Start the race in 20th place --- No boost --- Tire wear = 1 --- Fuel usage = 1 --- Rolling start --- Rolling start interval = 128 feet --- PRO level --- Against N300 grid which has the X-Bow in 1st place --- Prize money should be $134k ============================================= I have now run this race five times and find it very hard to beat the X-Bow cleanly, but have found it to be an entertaining race. The X-Bow is the only car that you have to worry about since you will lap all the other cars in the race. Some cars get lapped twice!! Polyphony Digital has done a poor job of balancing the cars for this race, however it makes for an interesting race if your objective to run a clean race, since the other cars frequently hold you up and they don't hold up the X-Bow very much at all. The following are some pictures from my most recent race win (which was nearly a clean race, but sadly had a couple of incidents): On lap 25 the race leading X-Bow is held up by the 15th place Supra RZ: I decide to make my move for the race lead by passing both cars on the right side: Three wide with the Supra RZ in the middle: We are now both ahead of the Supra RZ: Side by side with the X-Bow: The race lead!!! It only took me 52 minutes and 27 seconds! Side by side with the X-Bow in the final corner: The X-Bow goes wide thru the final corner: My Porsche 930 pulls ahead up the final straight: My Porsche 930 crosses the Finish line with the lead: Timing monitor after the race: MOV --- 0.370 sec Race time = 52:53.1 X-Bow BL = 2:04.313 GTsail4 BL = 2:03.903 Give this 25 lap race a try if you are interested in a decent challenge. You can modify the Porsche 911 Turbo's specs if you want to make the challenge slightly easier or harder. Feel free to post your results in this tread if you have any success! Good luck!
