    What is this?:grumpy::mad: The garage of no alerts? Seriously, this stopped being funny when it was happening to @TurnLeft :yuck:

    Speaking of whom, Glad you guys liked his magazine (So now I don't get to hear, Why didn't you tell me that was a silly idea:p) :tup: I got a sneak peek as it arrived at the store, what another super idea and a whole bag of chuckles. (Oh, and sorry, I missed some on the spelling mistakes, how did I miss Scotts? :banghead:) Thanks for the Promo BTW, that was very nice of you :O Cool duck! But not as cool as the beaver in that advert. :lol: How long is it going to take for that to be used as an avatar. I got the guess the avatar trivia question wrong too :( I remember seeing it change to the roadsign on the white background, but couldn't remember what came before. Most of the rest were just last month :lol:

    Anyway...

    Ridox, can you please stop (Please, never do this!!! :)) with the production line already. I can't keep up, I'm still back a few pages looking at a pair of Amuse S2000s :drool: I promise I'm coming back to have a go at those :tup: They're going to be my treat when I finish testing for the FITT Shootout. Then the Boss 302, that car just looks and sounds awesome. Especially in that black and red livery in the video :drool: Can we get that on here? Bummer, no we can't :grumpy: Ooh, red with black though, even better :D And did I see a McLaren F1 LM replica thrown in there too somewhere. :eek: I'm going be very busy :)

    @ALB123 I'd like to take a moment to get back to your post about why you come to this garage so much. I couldn't agree more about Ridox's ability to tune these replicas to be so realistic or the joy that you find driving some cars which will kill you if you ask it the wrong question in a corner. I've been won over too and I'm one of the tuners that does the other thing :O. I can't say I was ever against the whole replica idea, but when I first found the very few replica tuners around in GT5 I didn't really pay any attention being honest. Even early in GT6 I saw plenty of Ridox's replica tunes being posted around and again didn't really get drawn in. It wasn't until around May or June last year I finally clicked on one of those links and found myself in here looking at a McLaren MP4-12C (GT4 Replica I think) which was used as example in a discussion we were having somewhere else. Then came the Evora GT4, that was my hook? Back when camber was even more messed up than it is now, these cars just drove so much better than most of the other tunes I'd tried and on much lower grade tyres usually (Mostly mine being fair.:crazy:) I've tried quite a few more now, too many to mention and love the way I can learn so much from some of the spec options for some cars and have so much fun doing it. I can totally get where you're coming from

    But I also keep coming back here because it's a nice little positive corner of an at times very negative GTPlanet. There's a tuner who knows what he's doing and loves doing it:bowdown:, quite a few regular visitors who also love what they do, whether it's getting into the heat of A-Spec battles with cars 150pp higher than them or taking out one of their dream cars for a virtual test drive round some excellent driving roads because we can't do it in real life. Or those who go chasing carrots all the time ;) And then there's getting to read your reviews. I could almost feel the passion coming out the screen reading that one.:) If TurnLeft ever decides to make his magazine again, I hope he gives you the call. I'd sign up for a subscription for that :tup:

    Until the next time I stumble in with my alerts not working. Keep having fun! :cheers:

    For the Ferrari F40, having less weight is best, so the EU is preferable with less power ( use limiter ) to reach 550PP. You can also lower the weight, but keeping the weight distribution. The US is heavier, on higher speed track, it might be okay, but if there's a lot corner, having less weight is the best.

    For testing cars, PD is to blame, they remove test track from GT5 :(

    I only had a few alerts lately, and most of them from thread with lots activity :(

    The magazine is a good to have but I heard it took a lot of time to post, maybe a monthly feature would be suitable.

    For replicas, I have so many yet to be posted ( most of them just need final testing ), I'm targeting another 3 this week, M3, Ridox Supra, Autozam, and maybe Boss Trans Am, and hopefully Nismo 370Z + Ralliart Evo X.

    I'm grateful three are people who still interested in driving cars with realistic performance level :p Most of GT6 players here are into seasonal TT and online races and more into cars tuned for maximum speed often neglecting the simulation part :)

    @Ridox2JZGTE I'll compare those tonight. :tup:
    @ALB123 You can use the in game analyzer too but if you wish, the use of MoTeC is easy also. :tup:

    Their loss I say :) I do enjoy online racing a lot, but mostly in friends only room these days.
    It did take a while and as usual a lot of dedication and work :tup: It was a super idea very nicely executed. The calender was the icing and the cherry :D

    I actually have a couple of your tunes installed Thorin Cain. I forget exact which cars they are at the moment, but many months ago I was searching for a couple of particular tunes and came across yours. They drove very well and I've kept them permanently! :) :tup:

    You're totally right, @Thorin Cain. There is so much negativity on GTP and it is such a joy to never have to worry about that in here. Plus, like Ridox stated, the majority of GTP members seem to prefer to get their cars as fast as possible. That's cool if that's what makes them enjoy the game. I just happen to enjoy the game more if I believe the cars are more sim-like than arcade-like in their performance.

    Without naming names, I'd like to point out that I was just in the March COTM thread and saw tunes for a Lamborghini Gallardo with full weight reduction and racing tires! :eek: These cars are only 550PP... The cars must drive like they are on rails. I don't know exactly what the weight of a fully weight reduced Gallardo is, but I wouldn't be surprised that if the only way to get the car that light in real life would be to remove the passenger seat, radio, speakers, heating/air conditioning system, dashboard, rugs, airbags, and you'd probably have to make the car 2wd to remove the extra weight of the AWD system. I mean, come on... Maybe I'm wrong with this particular car, but I've seen some cars that lose like 400-500kg when dropping to weight reduction 3! How the heck do you remove 1000 pounds from a car?!

    Anyway, I drove cars like that in the beginning of my GT6 experience. Fortunately, I found the light after 4-5 months and started getting into Ridox's replica tunes. This is the entire reason I bought GT6. I thought I would be able to drive real world cars. I had no idea that there was tuning involved - and I definitely had no idea that you could modify cars as much as you can. I love the aero kits though. I wish there were more options available to us. Cosmetic changes are great. Even realistic mods are fine with me.

    1 lap and got my gold time 1:30.626 with the EU Spec Autosport Magazine Ferrari F40. I could have driven it harder too... But I saw how many people were complaining about the event, I thought maybe I should just drive my lap and set a baseline -- see how much harder I need to go to get Gold. Like most events, one lap and done. I don't shoot for low times, so now I'm done with both seasonal events this week -- they last about 10 minutes, like usual. :(

    I just checked my notes for F40, I had a tune made for Midfield Super Car Shootout currently running, going to frankenstein it with the EU Auto Motorsport Mag replica, should be easy 1:28s on SH at Apricot Hill 550PP Super Lap. I tested the F40 replica long ago at Apricot Hill, it could do 1:30/31s on CS :)

    Yeah... I didn't push it as hard as I could have. I just didn't want to possibly spin and have to start over, so I told myself "just do a lap to feel how this car handles here." Like I said, some people were complaining about how the car feels in this event. Personally, I thought it felt great. I guess that's what happens when you're used to driving on CM and CS tires. SH all of a sudden feels like racing slicks to me. :lol: :D

    Notes :
    The above quote is from original replica which provides some background information on the original build, this 550PP version is based on.

    The 550PP F40 is a combination of the EU Auto Motorsport Mag 1989 replica and revision made for F40 FITT GTP SuperCar Shootout at Midfield ( March-April 2015 ) The F40 wasn't entered in the shootout, but I decided to lower the power and set it at 550PP. This F40 offers a unique experience, with setup aimed to replicate real life performance in previous form, but now has more power to play with and much higher grip tire as well.

    At Apricot Hill, it should easily do 1:27s in 1st lap :D
    I included a replay of test lap offline at Apricot Hill, 1:27s on 1st lap.

    ENJOY :cheers:

    Your welcome, and the duck might have some future uses :mischievous:.

    Not very long :D.

    Just about the same road except i wasn't here for GT5, it's from testing & doing reviews for the Difficult Car Of the month that I got interested. The first time I couldn't understand why someone would post a car tuned like that, and @XS would find it good, I thought he was just being polite :rolleyes:. @Ridox2JZGTE never lost patience with me, took my "bad press" reviews and tried to explain again & again & again....:lol:, you know how long it takes me to sink something in , finally got it and tried my hand on building a Replica (2cv race car :eek:), and again & again & again he helped me out :bowdown:. This is when I finally understood all the work behind, and the knowledge you have to acquire to do these, & also the frustration from the limits of the game and the available info out there. This also lit a light to do some Replicas of a different type and the Elegance Automotive Guild was born with your great help :bowdown:, and also the big help of our common friend who we asked questions again & again & again.

    and very good place to meet some wonderful people who all have grown from this. I think that if @danbojte , @ALB123 and you and me were to look back and read the first posts we've put out, you'll surely see some positive changes that have occurred from all of us meeting with all the folks on :gtplanet:. :cheers: to you all and keep having fun.

    If it ain't first, it's last :lol: Eiger really puts front heavy car to the test :)
    I think you will be surprised how good F40 is in general on SH tire :D

    Will watch the video later for sure :) and hope you will like it.
    Those are very warm words to read, thank you :cheers:

    Notes :

    This BMW E92 M3 replica covers between 2007-2011 model years, with several lap record used as reference and 2 famous US magazine for weight data ( Road & Track + Car & Driver )

    The E92 M3 has 420PS / 414HP, with weight figure that varies, of which some are provided in this replica. The base specs used the heaviest test weight from Road & Track, at 1747kg ( rounded up ) and a bit more than 52% weight at front. The base specs can replicate/beat all of real life lap times on CS tire.

    Some of the specs only uses window weight reduction, while specs that uses weight reduction stage 1 do not use window weight reduction.

    E92 M3 stock spring rate are too low ( Front: 160 lb/in Rear: 550 lb/in ), and not able to be reached in GT6, thus I used the spring ratio ( optimized based on spring test result for the rear spring - variable rate ) and aim the lowest front rate possible. I included the rear rate that reflect the ratio ( based on 550 lb/in ) : 11.55 kg/mm as optional.
    The alignment uses BMW range with high front camber for track. There is also an optional suspension set with competition package ( ZCP ) ride height at 10mm lower than stock.

    The gear ratios are corrected, with 2 options, 6 speed manual and 7 speed SMG/M-DCT/DKG adapted into 6 speed. The 7 speed uses only 1-5 ratio and 7th gear as 6th, the 6th gear value 1.200 from the real car is not used, so it's best to shift very late from 5th to 6th. The 7 speed used twin plate clutch in GT6, while 6 speed MT uses stock clutch.

    LSD has been set with medium preload and lock rate that should give good traction on low speed to high speed corners.

    I tuned and tested on variety of tracks, from Tsukuba, Laguna Seca, Nurburgring, to Fuji and Streets of Willow. All of these tracks have real life record set by BMW M3.

    Tsukuba : 1:05.817 for 6MT and 1:05.698 for 7 Sp DKG
    Laguna Seca : 1:42.964
    Fuji Speedway F : 2:02.07
    Streets of Willow : 1:27.67
    Nurburgring GP F: 2:28.23 Autobild.de, M3 with Competition Package, 19 inch wheel, Adaptive Damper ( EDC ), 10mm lower, and 7 speed DKG
    Nurburgring GP D : 1:44.86 - high possibility done on Pilot Cup tires and BMW provided car ( unlikely to be stock ) - replicated with SH tire.

    And, here are the lap times in GT6 :

    6MT, CS, Tsukuba 1:05.682

    6MT, CS, Fuji Speedway F, 2:01.609

    6MT, CS, Laguna Seca, 1:42.695

    6MT, SH, Nurb GP/D, 1:44.633

    6MT, CS, Nurb GP/F 2:27.449

    7DKG/Competition Package, CS, Nurb GP/F 2:27.807 ( -10mm lower )

    7DKG, Tsukuba, CS, 7sp, 1:05.430

    All of the replay of the lap has been provided, enjoy the view and use them as ghost too :D

    And a video feature of both Lexus IS-F and BMW E92 M3 review by Naoki Hattori at touge roads and track battle with M3 driven by Keiichi Tsuchiya battling it out with NISMO Z driven by Naoki Hattori.








    UPDATE MAY 2017 : Added additional optional Damper/ARB/LSD, the package is softer overall with lower LSD preload, think of it as M-Normal mode, and the base suspension/LSD as M-Sport Mode.

    You need to use PS3 to view the replay :) The zip file need to be downloaded, then unzip the content to a USB disk, create a folder like this : X:\PS3\SAVEDATA, X is the USB thumb/flash disk drive, put the replay folder ( should be name like this : BCJS3716-RPLxxx ) inside the SAVEDATA directory.

    Now insert the USB disk into the USB port on PS3, go to game section of XMB, go to save data utility, choose USB disk, then copy the replay to PS3. Now launch the game, and go to gallery, go to the right and choose load replay. It will import the replay into GT6 library, now you can choose and play it.

    I went with the 6 speed manual transmission tested on Sept 15, 2011 because it weighs the least and has the highest PP level at 490. The car drives very nice. It's now my third '07 M3 in my garage. I wish we could label the cars, for easy recognition. I haven't really timed this car yet. But it feels pretty quick, so I think it should do very well on the track.

    It would be really cool if both Boss 302 and M3 race each other, both on SH tire :) Best track would be Nurburgring GP F or Big Willow, would be epic :) Maybe you and @danbojte :D

    One more thing,do you plan on uploading the replays on YouTube instead of only giving us ones that have to be played on PS3?It may take longer for you to upload tunes(which is cool since you always upload very quickly;-)),however it can also make it more convenient to watch replay.For example,people like me won't have much time switching on PS3.Being able to watch them on YouTube will be less time-consuming.You replica garage can also be more well-known!

    I do have a youtube channel, but it has been inactive for long time, it's linked on my signature, no abs/high BB videos GT6. I don't plan to upload more videos as I only have crappy camera phone and I don't have capture card to record straight from PS3 :( Anyone who have capture card and youtube channel can do it ( by downloading the replays and play /record it ), I would be very grateful. I do have some video done by lewis_hamilton_ uploaded on his YT account, the HKS CZ200S and the RUF Yellowbird GT6 vs Assetto Corsa at Spa.
