    @ALB123 That highlight for the Blackbird was made in June 2014. :D :sly:

    @danbojte Oh, I just noticed that you were the person who recommended the car for Tune of the Week! :D :tup:

    I built that car a long time ago, the one with the most horsepower. It was too much for me! :( Perhaps I should check it out again and maybe build one of the lesser powered versions. :tup:

    I just took the 791hp Wangan Midnight Blackbird out for a rip around La Sierra. Yup. I remembered exactly how terrifying that car is to drive, for me. There is obscene amounts of power oozing from this car. When the turbos spool up and let loose after 6000 rpm in 3rd gear, the wheels spin -- at 100mph! That's pretty much all you need to know about this death machine. :lol:

    I then decided to build the smaller siblings to this 791 hp behemoth. There are 4 models to choose from, with slight variations in the suspension setup and overall power really being the only difference. Before writing this I finished a lap around La Sierra with the "weakest" of the Blackbirds. I have the word in quotation marks because we're still talking about 462 hp and 408 lb/feet of torque! :eek: You still have to be 100% focused when driving this car. Either PD really has rear-engine car physics wrong or this car is just this scary -- even around moderate curves you'll find yourself balancing the car with a slight amount of counter-steering. For some reason I feel like these cars are always on the verge of spinning me right around if my steering wheel isn't perfectly straight.

    I'm glad I built the younger brothers to that monster Blackbird. Every now and then I really enjoy a challenge like the 4 Blackbirds provide. Honestly, the 791 hp Blackbird probably won't be seeing too many miles, but I think I could take out the lesser powered versions from time to time. :tup:

    @ALB123 I'd suggest to take it to a SSR track and floor it. :lol: :sly:

    I got a question: the Volkswagen Lupo Cup Car, Lupo 1.4, Lupo GTi '01 and Lupo GTi Race Car match this car of the 2 videos below?

    I just had a look at news page :) Thank you :D The Blackbird is a monster, not sure if that will scare the driver away or gives them something to enjoy :lol:, but sports tire will make it docile enough :p

    If you get confused, pick one to be featured, there's always another week :sly:

    Z06 was built once I got my hands on some official docs :) It's too much on CS tire, 650ft lb torque :eek:, must be spin city without TCS in real life.
    I need to find more time to play :( I need to post the Amuse R1 and Wangan Midnight Kishida based on it, then some Japanese cars like TRD Sports M Celica, Ridox Supra, RALLIART Evo X, 370Z Nismo, Integra DC2, then E92 M3, SRT Viper T/A and C7 Z06. I may need to leave the notes blank to speed up posting when I can get to play for a few hours.

    I wished I have a quarter of his skills/talent :lol:

    You nominated the car last year :confused: ?

    The Blackbird is at home when it's on the highway :D At the track with some low speed corners, beware of the rear end demon shaking you up :sly: Fit staggered grip level tire ( one level higher at the rear ), eg : SH / SM / SS on the rear and CS / SH / SM on the front for some tight driving :)

    Treed :lol:

    Looks pretty close to stock power at 140PS, 6 speed close ratio, KW Rally / Bilstein Tarmac Coilover, it's in F2005/ Class 2 Rally car, might be done :)

    Ahhh...I never even considered running staggered tires. That's a very good idea!! I just went out with CM all around! :lol: :D I could probably get away with CM/CS and definitely CS/SH would be plenty of grip. The car is just a raging animal. It really is... I'm all done driving for tonight, but I'll have to try the 791 hp Blackbird again tomorrow with some stickier tread in the rear. Spinning the tires at 100 mph. Good God! :D :lol: :boggled: :tup:

    Brake Balance:
    5/5 ( personal BB) or for ABS 0 wheel : 4/4, for ABS 1 - 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 5/5 brake balance as starting point.


    Notes :

    The Amuse R1 S2000 was first debuted in Hot Version videos Touge Showdown 280 Class.

    The S2000 based on AP1 was heavily tuned but still has close to stock power at 260,2ps / 8439rpm and torque 23.9kgfm / 6447rpm.
    I used later setup weight at 1140kg, the early setup 1124kg can also be used, simply reduce ballast to 4kg. I do not include this in the specs as it does not impact the car performance, and I prefer to use the heaviest / latest spec of the car. The distribution is at 49/51 as the Amuse R1 S2000 uses Amuse carbon hardtop and Mugen roll cage ( body rigidity mandatory )

    The Amuse S2000 R1 uses Amuse own developed damper kit, employing Eibach racing springs and Bilstein revalved damper. There are 2 sets of springs, each used for specific task, touge uses 7k/8k, while track duty uses 12k/14k. Each springs setup has tailored damper, ARB and alignment. Ride height reduced by 45mm front and 55mm rear. Optional camber and toe for front tire also included for both spring setup.
    The debut race in Touge 280, the Amuse R1 uses track setup springs 12/14, so it depends on the situation and preference of the tuner. You are free to use both springs setup as you like on any track condition, what works best for you is the most important. The 12/14 springs performed admirably well at Gunma Cycle Sports Center used in Touge 280 Showdown.

    For gear ratio, the Amuse has stock gear ratios coupled with high final, 4.44 for early setup and later setup upgraded to 4.5 final. The GT6 S2000 needs correction when using custom transmission, the 1.16 transfer gear ratio is not calculated, so I have taken that into account when applying the final drive.

    LSD uses Cusco Type MZ / RS, 1 way Amuse SPL setup, for this I used high preload setup with focus on high corner exit grip.

    The Street/Touge Amuse R1 setup in real life uses Bridgestone Potenza RE-01R, this is similar to comfort soft, while the Track setup uses Advan A048-R / M Soft or Medium compound semi slick, which is similar to sports hard. The Tsukuba lap record for the Amuse R1 S2000 was 1:02s, this can be done with Track Attack setup ( 4.5 Final ) and SH tire. I also tested the car at SSR5, using Track Attack setup and comfort soft tire, managing 1:36s with ease.

    I have provided the replay for Tsukuba lap as well as the SSR5 lap, should be enjoyable to watch and use as a ghost to race with. Below is a video of the Amuse R1 S2000 Legendary Debut in Hot Version Touge Showdown 280 Class :p

    I just purchased this car within the last 2 weeks. Thank God you've decided to publish a tune for it. :D I'm letting B-Spec run the 24 Mins of Nurburgring while I check my watched threads on GTP. After that finishes, it's straight to the Garage to make sure my mechanics get my Amuse s2000 converted for me! :sly: :tup:

    Oops! I was wrong. This Amuse S2000 wasn't the car that I recently bought. I was thinking of the Amuse S2000 GT1 Turbo, a much different animal. Normally, I would pass on adding a standard model car to my Garage. Unless I really, really like the car in real life, I try to stick to Premium models only. Sadly, GT6 has a lot of awesome cars that are still old PS2 models. But, I digress...

    My mechanics went right to work on my new Amuse R1 TITAN AP1 S2000 once Ridox faxed over the particulars of his tune. By time I arrived to the Nurburgring Nordschleife, my car was ready to tango! A full tank of gas and newly mounted CS tires with which to carve up the hills of this famous track was all I needed to know...I was ready.

    This car is very sporty. I like the transmission in this car. Obviously, this is a car you're going to want to rev and 9000 RPMs will give you plenty of revving. The handling of this little S2000 is beautiful. It almost anticipates your turns. Just a slight roll of the steering wheel and the nose of my car is pointed exactly where I want her to go. I can't remember the last car I drove that had such a beautiful turn in. Even on Tsukuba, which I drove later, this was even more apparent when I rolled my way around those very tight Japanese turns.

    The only downside I see for this car is the fact it is ~450PP and therefore it doesn't pack much of a punch at all. We all own plenty of cars that are ~450PP and there is nothing wrong with that category of car. This Amuse R1 Titan AP1 S2000, however, FEELS like a car that wants 100 more horsepower. :D Some cars feel perfect at ~250hp. This S2000 almost seems to be crying for more. I don't know if that's a good thing or a bad thing yet. I'll have to see how she holds up against the other similarly tunes cars in my stable.

    On a side note, I drove more laps around Tsukuba with the Street Suspension setup than I did with the Track Setup. Personally, my best time was achieved with the softer spring setup. It does have slightly firmer dampers, however, so don't take my word for anything. Try both to see which you prefer. Options are always good and that is why both setups will occupy Tabs A & B on my new 459PP Amuse R1 Tital AP1 S2000! :tup:

    I just built this Z06 with the Alternate Street/Track Alignment. I wasn't sure exactly what this "Andy Pilgrim Corvette" was. For many months I've seen it in Ridox's Tune Directory. Apparently, it's really just a 2004 Z06 Replica with a few alternate alignment setups to try. I actually can remember that article pitting the Suzuki GSX-R 1000 vs. the Z06. Thank God Andy stepped up to prove that the Corvette had a lot more left in her around Big Willow. :D

    The car drives as I expected. Very smooth and clean. She'll step out on you from time to time when coming aound a bend or turn, so stay focused. For the most part, however, just point the car where you want it to go and mash the throttle. The CM tires on my Z06 were more than adequate for a quick paced run around La Sierra. If you feel the need to throw CS tires on this badboy on the track, go for it! :tup:

    This transmission from GM is a little wonky. I really suggest you wind the hell out of 3rd gear before shifting into 4th. Do NOT short shift 3rd. :lol: Other than that, she's alright. Oh, likewise, when you're downshifting you might want to hold that brake pedal a second longer than usual before moving from 4th to 3rd or you'll just bounce off the rev limiter like crazy. :eek: Thank God we all have full pit crews to work on our cars when we're on the golf course... Cuz I know I beat the hell out of mine from time to time. :sly: :lol: :tup:

    I agree with you about the gear ratios. Absolutely terrible spacing of the 6 ratios in this gearbox. It's almost like they pulled the numbers out of a hat!

    Thank you for the review, I haven't tried the 1140kg weight, the original value was 1139kg, I made a mistake by 1 kg :lol: Both 1139 and 1140 should be correct as I got both values listed in old article and videos ( 2510lb and 2513 lb )

    I understand the cry for more power, the touge monster was built for 280 class ( limited power ) and it was focused more on the lightness and cornering, it got beaten by Amuse Z33 Lightweight Tune on Ebisu East track, the Z33 has more torque and able to pull away on the straight and up hill part. I think the Wangan Midnight Kishida Turbo C1 Runner Amuse R1 will not disappoint in power department.

    Tremec gearboxes are usually setup for torquey engine with wide spaced ratio and often an overdrive top gear for cruising and fuel saving. The 3rd might be the GM engineer trying to do something different :lol:

    Good news, I have managed to bring the C7 Z06 replica to beat ZR1 real life record at Tuskuba ( 1:02.553 ) on CS tire, the Z06 have potential to do low 1:02s In real life, The C7 Z06 can beat ZR1 lap time on some tracks :) More cars coming soon.

    I used Amuse R1 S2000 for this replica, with agile handling, good acceleration and top speed..

    Tuned and tested at SSR5 as well as SSR7. Enjoy the lightweight turbo S2000 :cheers:

    The Ultimate Driving Machine. We've heard those words associated with BMW automobiles for many, many years. After driving this souped up 2002, it's no wonder. Yeah, I know this car is about as close to a stock 2002 as a Ford Pinto is to a Ferrari Testarossa, but technology wasn't the same back then and I'd like to think that with modern technology THIS is what an M2002 would be like! :sly:

    I took my newly built BMW 3002 TTii onto Brands Hatch and did lap after lap after lap. You just don't want to stop driving this car. Mine was equipped with CS tires, which should provide plenty of grip for circuit driving. It's just a shame that we can't adjust tire width in GT6. This BMW 3002 TTii is wearing rubber that is too narrow for it's modern upgrades. Perhaps adding SH tires would provide that extra bit of grip that I think would be absolutely perfect, however, I think it would probably be overkill. Judge for yourself. Ride on whatever tires you're comfortable with.

    The only thing you want to be worried about when driving this little rocket is throttle control coming out of turns. Smoothly push the accelerator down with your foot, otherwise you may find yourself staring at where you just came from. :lol: I did quite a few times while learning the finer points of this machine. :D Many times I would leave the car in 3rd when I thought kicking down to 2nd might give me a little bit more power - it just wasn't worth it. The rear can become upset due to the High RPM Turbo and those skinny tires.

    TAB B houses the 450PP version of this car and I look forward to using it in 450PP Spec A races in the future. It's loads of fun even without the High RPM Turbo. Another job well done, Mr. Ridox! :tup:

    You had me worried when I saw the Paul Cain BMW quote :lol: It has skinny tires and requires good touch of control of the throttle, but as I read the review, you are having fun with it, which I'm glad for. You can try fit staggered grip tire on this one, CS/SH perhaps or SH/SM to emulate the real life much wider tread tires.

    Did anyone watch the Qatar MotoGP race ? It was one of the best racing on 2 wheels :D

    Oh how I wish the BMW 2002 was a Premium car and we had the option to fit wider rubber. I always use the interior view and it's such a let down when you hop in a Standard...

    The MotoGP was on free-to-air up until this year down here in Australia. Unfortunately, if we want to continue enjoying these maniacs on two wheels, we have to open our wallets & pay Rupert Murdoch $60 per month. I did get to see some highlights on our News though and 'The Doctor' can still pull off a win against the odds. I don't think many would've predicted a Rossi win following the results of Qualifying.

    Well hello my friend, I was going to do a review of one of your cars and then I got inspired by something I did in the December COTM too @Bowtie-muscle, thought I'd bring it up a notch. It's not perfect, had so many problems with formatting and text alignment, plus there are some spelling mistakes, couldn't use the spelling corrector :grumpy:. I did this on Excel and I hope you enjoy it because it may just be the first and last time I take on something like this. Now I'm going back to work on suspension frequencies and other little goodies. Enjoy :scared:.

    @TurnLeft Fabulous!! :tup: I have just downloaded and skimmed through the contents. I will read it later. If you're ever looking for contributors, I would be happy to. I'm not looking for my name on the title or anything like that. Just a small byline on anything I might contribute. Please feel free to say "No, thank you..." if you'd rather not. I will take no offense. I understand you may not want to take on such a big project again anyway, but if you do, I'd be willing to contribute in any small way that I can. Just some food for thought. I probably should have PM'ed this. Forgive me. My intention was not to put you on the spot. I look forward to reading this inaugural issue. :tup: :)

    @Ridox2JZGTE It is so funny. I didn't read the NOTES section of your BMW 2002 tune until after I posted my little write up. How strange is it that you mentioned the exact thing I did (albeit before I did) about the tire width? Great minds think alike, eh? :lol: And you also mentioned the importance of throttle control...but, I think anyone would mention that in a write-up. Oh, and I haven't seen the Qatar Motor GP race... I'm not a devout follower of Motor GP but I respect the sport immensely and watch it from time to time. My brother is a BIG fan. Those riders are studs. Plain and simple. It's amazing that they can sit comfortably on those motorcycles with balls that big! :lol: :D

    @TurnLeft : Looks great, will download the PDF :)

    @ALB123 : I may publish the stock car 2002 Tii replica in the future, it's a lot slower but should be fun too. For MotoGP race, you should watch the last 15 minutes of the race at the very least, 3 way battle for number 1.



    I'm going to write and do last test soon for TRD Sports M Celica, Mustang Boss 302 and Garage Limit AZ1. The Mustang Boss 302 is very good at Tsukuba the last time I tested it, capable of 1:04s on CS at stock power and test weight, beating the E92 M3 replica :eek:
