    LSD setup is largely influenced by driving style and in some degree input method :) Glad you find LSD setup that works for you. For me, I prefer higher initial to make the car more consistent/stable at the expense of tightness in handling - this is where driving style comes in :D

    Did you use the suspension setup I posted ? The Amuse R34 GTR still needs a lot of work, maybe I will spend more time on it, once I finished the cars that are currently under progress - I will install body rigidity to improve stability.

    Wow the replies are messing up,..seems to be adding info I didn't reply to....weird...OK...so yes I tried your suspension but just couldn't get the combo to work for me...very loose. All I could manage was in the 57's to be honest. Reverted back to my suspension and tweaked my LSD ...used your tranny. I am going back to your suspension... However will input my LSD and see what happens. Do you use a wheel?? I use stick...so I wonder if that could be making a difference here...

    Please do work on this car more and see what you come up with.. I will be more than happy to try is and give you my data from my perspective... Not sure if I am helping or hindering lol

    I see what your accomplishing with the higher initial torque...I could feel both wheels spinning at the same time vs the lower settings where it seems to jump from side to side...however with the lower initial torque I just feel like I can jump on the fuel a little faster at corner exit.

    BTW I was wondering if your set up had rigidity installed...now I know :)

    The set up i posted has no body rigidity installed yet :) I use stick, a DS2 to be precise :)

    I will make a thorough replica of the Amuse R34 GTR, it will be as close possible to real life version :p I might also make 550PP version for racing on sports tire. But it may take a week or two, as I have so many cars still not posted yet :lol: Got Ferraris, Lotus, Ford and McLaren in the works, so little time, so many cars :lol:

    Notes :

    The Aston Martin V12 Vantage GT3 replica faces similar situation like the Jaguar G3, overweight at 1300+kg. The build in this version has no flat floor.

    I used Aston Martin official GT3 power at 600+HP and 700+Nm torque. The closest I can get to the torque is 511 ft-lb or 693Nm.

    The car uses AP Twin Plate Clutch and XTrac 6 speed sequential gearbox with limited slip ramp/plate differential. Dry weight 1250kg with near 50/50 distribution.

    For suspension I used 20kg/mm spring all around, with damper and ARB tuned to keep the rear as stable as possible.

    LSD uses high preload as usual to maintain traction with medium locking rate.

    Gearing comes from XTrac 416 ratios as I couldn't find information on the gearbox model or ratios of the real car.

    With no flat floor, the car can be loose at times, care should be taken on medium and low speed sweeper and corners.

    I tuned and tested at Silverstone GP, Tsukuba, Bathurst and Nurburgring GP/F.

    This replica is still an evolving process, there will be tweaks here and there, any feedback is welcomed.
    ENJOY :cheers:

    Notes :

    I have always been a fan of Nissan Skyline and Paul Walker from his Fast and Furious movies.

    This replica is dedicated to the late Paul Walker, a replication of his ride in Fast and Furious 4th installment.


    For paint job, the Bay Side Blue from R34 premium Nur is not correct, to get the correct one, buy standard car R34 GTR '99 in Bay Side Blue, this has the correct/accurate shade. The paint chip will be listed above the premium Bay Side Blue, both has the same name in the paint shop.

    The real car has extensive modification, with 543HP from custom turbo, intercooler, ECU, exhaust ( NISMO NE1 Weldina ) etc. The car also have some weight reduction, with rear seat delete and removal on unnecessary bits and pieces mainly behind the front seats. Custom roll cage has also be installed. NISMO Coilover also has been installed in the real car and lowered to improve handling.

    I used NISMO R Tune Coilover Kit with 9k/8k spring rate, incorporating real life alignment ( camber and toe ). Damper has been tuned for road and track with neutral balance in mind.

    The rest are stock ( LSD, Torque Split and Transmission ) as in in real life specs.

    I tuned and tested this R34 on many tracks - Tsukuba, Brands Hatch GP, Silverstone GP, Bathurst, Ascari, Nurburgring GP/F, Nordschleife, Apricot Hill, Willow Springs.

    The R34 is very fun to drive on comfort soft, hope it will do the same to everyone :D
    ENJOY :cheers:

    Some pictures from the car during early stage of building :

    The real car :

    UPDATE : Correction to camber and toe values

    ANOTHER UPDATE : Added additional toe angle for even more rotation if desired.
    Added notes about correct Bay Side Blue paint from R34 GTR '99 standard car.


    The correct Bay Side Blue paint :

    Gran Turismo Arena (Layout A)_9.jpg

    UPDATE May 2017 : Updated the damper, mainly front compression and extension to improve high/medium speed balance even base alignment toe. For even more rotation, use alternative lower toe.
    Tested at Big Willow, able to go aggressive with throttle on uphill/downhill halfway of the track.

    So a wired controller?? Interesting. Some say its more accurate and instant...others say that there is no negligible difference.... How do you find a it?

    DS2 is the best for GT5 and 6 on PS3 :D, the analog stick has more resistance, more durable. The face buttons - cross, square, circle and triangle has more range and accuracy. The face buttons requires at least 3 times more pressure to register 100% input, imagine pressing RADAR MAP button on ace combat 5 in PS2, that requires a lot of pressure to get to full Zoom in.

    Now imagine pressing brake or gas with such pressure to get 100%. With the DS2, I can drive with no ABS and high BB with accuracy and ease like using pedals. DS3 will never compete with DS2 :lol:

    Only in the movies, the real car never have NOS installed, the pictures of the real car above is the one on sale after Paul Walker's death. You can see the trunk houses audio system, the rear seat removed and a roll cage installed, the engine bay only have low mount turbo and FMIC installed. No NOS :D, of course if you want it like in the movie, put a NOS in there :p

    I know it would be more work for you but too bad we couldn't replicate the audio systems :)

    and thanks for the insight on the controller.. I am going to try that for sure

    Am I the only who thinks that a big audio system in a sports car is (almost) useless? I mean, that thing adds weight, and all of you know the famous quote "simplify and add lightness" :lol:

    The rear seat was deleted to make up for the added weight from the stereo :lol: :) The real car has lightweight custom made hood, NISMO NE1 Weldina lightweight full dual catback exhaust, OMP lightweight race seats for both driver and passenger, I approximate 40kg saving over 1540kg = 1500kg.

    The stereo and roll cage were also used to add more weight at the rear :p, which is why I used 57/43 distribution, the real R34 in stock weight form or modified with turbo + intercooler without weight savings, usually has close to 58/42 to 60/40 distribution.

    ia, Group GT3 Series, RH, Camber used, ABS 0 (3/2) - Winner!

    Precisely tuned to tame this huge power. If I like this one, I'm pretty sure I'll love the Flat Floor version. :)

    I hope PD will give us, someday, a lighter version too; it's so shame that the weight can't be lowered more. :irked:

    Wonderful Sport Car! It makes my day just looking at it. :) I'll accept it as a birthday gift. :D :lol:

    Well done, again! :tup:

    Notes :

    I built this replica out of interest when a member asked about replicating the James Bond Lotus Esprit Turbo featured in For Your Eyes Only visually :)

    I did some research, collecting information on the car, getting suspension, weight, LSD and power figure from various dedicated Lotus site and forums.

    First of all, power is at 210HP to replicate 1981 Lotus Esprit Essex Turbo S3 power. Weight is at 1220kg with real life distribution at 42/58, ballast is used to achieve the weight specification.

    For suspension, I have collected various information on coilover kits and springs for Lotus Esprit Turbo. I decided to use Eibach Spring set with 375lb/in front and 275lb/in rear, a highly recommended spring rate combo by Lotus workshop for road and track. Most springs for the Lotus Esprit, even the stock one are lower at the rear to give better stability and traction balance.

    Damper has been tuned for balance of braking/entry and traction in mid corner to exit. Real world alignment has also been used on both camber and toe. Real life recommended alignment for Esprit up to S4 :
    Camber : -0.7+-0.2 front, -0.9+-0.2 rear
    Toe Angle : toe out 0.20degree+-0.10 front, toe in 0.40degree+-0.07 rear

    For LSD, I used Quaife ATB Helical LSD, replicated with medium preload and locking on acceleration side. This gives distinct behavior like Quaife LSD is famous for :)

    I tuned and tested this car mainly at Tsukuba, with only 418PP and comfort soft, it managed 1:08.051 :eek: on test lap. It should be able to post 1:07s, which is quick for such an old car with only suspension and LSD tweaks :D

    When driving the Lotus, keep in mind that there's a lot of weight at the rear, steer with throttle on exit, minimize jerking the steering input, being smooth, slow in fast out will result in great lap time. There's a sweet spot when traction limit is reached, when the rear outside started to slip, keep the steering steady, reduce throttle a bit to maintain balance.

    ENJOY :cheers:

    Thank you, there will be flat floor version soon. Meanwhile, enjoy the James Bond Lotus Esprit Turbo ( real world setup ) :) Oh, also Happy Birthday :cheers:, the Lotus is the present :p

    I will also make a 500PP version of the NSX Type R '92, still using real world setup.


    Sorry for the long wait, done :)

    :lol: It's not my birthday yet. It meant to be a joke, saying that I could accept the Aston Martin as a gift IRL, if somebody would give it to me. :D
    Anyway, thank you for the Lotus too. :cheers:

    :lol: You got me :) With the Lotus, you can brake deep in the apex while turning as long as you don't overcooked the front tires, it's stable and very fun to drive, just need steady throttle control on sweepers :D

    Brake Balance:
    3/4 ( personal BB) or for ABS 0 wheel : 3/4, for ABS 1 4/5 or feel free to use your preferred brake balance.

    Recommended setting for DS3 user :
    Steering sensitivity at +1 or +2, all aids off, except ABS 1 ( if not comfortable with ABS 0 ) with 4/5 brake balance as starting point.



    Notes :

    The Aston Martin V12 Vantage GT3 replica faces similar situation like the Jaguar G3, overweight at 1300+kg. The build in this version has flat floor.

    I used Aston Martin official GT3 power at 600+HP and 700+Nm torque. The closest I can get to the torque is 511 ft-lb or 693Nm.

    The car uses AP Twin Plate Clutch and XTrac 6 speed sequential gearbox with limited slip ramp/plate differential. Dry weight 1250kg with near 50/50 distribution.

    For suspension I increased rear spring rate to 21kg/mm and ARB changed to maintain steering response with the new aero.

    LSD uses high preload as usual to maintain traction with medium locking rate.

    Gearing comes from XTrac 416 ratios as I couldn't find information on the gearbox model or ratios of the real car. Final gear is higher compared to the no flat floor version to maintain good acceleration at high speed.

    With flat floor, the car may be a bit tight to turn, but the stability has immensely improved.

    I tuned and tested at Silverstone GP, Tsukuba, Bathurst and Nurburgring GP/F.

    This replica is still an evolving process, there will be tweaks here and there, any feedback is welcomed.
    ENJOY :cheers:

    OK. So The best I could manage to squeeze on my set up with your Tranny was 55.3xx. So after trying fl squeeze every ounce on mine I switched back over to your suspension again, however I kept my LSD and wing settings. With your suspension I managed to squeeze another 4/10ths. I am now into the high 54.8xx on Tsukuba

    My LSD: 7/12/8
    Downforce: 150
    Final gear: 4.750

    I am now comfortable to run Nordschleife. .I will keep you posted of course

    Cheers

    Forgot... RH tires
