Is the RX-7 LM real?
The special model one in Mazda.
If it is can you post some screenshots?
Hmmmm, i'm guessing it's not real. I never heard of Mazda racing at LeMans, but then again im' not an expert. Someone posted last week and said that some of the LM cars are real and some aren't. If they aren't, they're still built towards LeMans specifications, which explains why (in GT2) you can't modify their brakes, their drivetrain parts, the power, etc.
Mazda is in fact the only Japanese manufacturer to win the 24 hours at Le Mans.
Ha haaa, well that tells you i don't know jack about it! I don't really watch that much sports, i'm too busy pretending to race in videogame sims.
I don't think an RX-7 has competed at Le Mans in the past 20 years; but yes, Mazda's 787B conquered the 1991 24 Hour race. (Well, the leading Jaguar XJR-12 spun out midway through the race, losing a lap or two, which helped Mazda). That's not to say the RX-7 hasn't been a pheonmenal sucess in road racing over the years. The RX-7 was the weapon of choice for IMSA's GTU series, chalking up over 100 victories; its turbocharged small-displacement 2-rotor engine and overall light weight made it hard to beat.
The RX-7 LM (in any form) is not a real car. I suppose PD wanted a challenger for the JGTC Tom's Supra, R33 LM, Rally Impreza, and so they created cars like the Mazda RX-7 LM(s), Mitsubishi FTO LM, TVR Cerbera LM, etc.
Interesting. Yeah, I'm watching a race rite now that i taped yesterday...at Limerock. It's got a lot of touring cars. there are a few Mazda 6's and a Protege or two, but no RX-8. I guess this particular race is just limited: no full-on sports cars.
You can't modify them much in GT1 either. You can change the settings but I think you can do that in GT2 as well. In fact there is very little details about is in the LM cars in either version.
Of course you can modify them!
Only by doing them as a Hybrid and that pic's from GT2.
You won't be able to convince HYBRDLVR, TMM...he's in his own world. Believe me i already tried
The RX-7 never raced at lemans, and definately not in the GT1 form. That car (both the aspec and special model) have pop-up headlamps, which are never used on serious race cars. Pop-up headlamps are heavy and increase drag when up.
In fact, the only accurate Lemans race cars in the game are (unless im missing something) the Nismo GTR LM and Viper GTS-R. Others, like the NSX-R GT2, are similar to real life cars but are either overpowered or have some other dramatic difference from their real life counterpart.
Here's a couple of RX7's I could dig up, I couldn't find any pic of the Red or Green LM in GT1...
I know the Green Two tone isn't a LM, It's my favorite though!
I can believe that...
@ TMM - The pics posted ARE all from GT1.
@ HYBRIDLVR - Can you post a link for the codes to "hybrid" in GT1. How you get 1000+ for that RX-7?
The NSX-R was raced by Mugen, and the Kunimitsu team at Le Mans the same year the Nismo was, so that's real
I use a GS Pro to change the values and then saved them to a memory card, The key for great cars in GT1 is Weight Reduction, It makes the cars wonderful!
((((((((((I could send you specific Codes for changing parts to get the increased HP if you have a GS for PS1 Or if you live in CA. I could simply let you copy my memory card! LMK...)))))))))
What I have isn't a GS Pro, its called GameHunter. Works just like one though, I've been using it to make GT2 hybrids.
Yesh, not quite the same model, but yesh.
