    I need help with some settings on the Stagea Nismo. Im trying to win the GT All Stars race with a fully tuned Stagea, with every part available bought. I came last in a race by about 1 sec or so,with the leader car a few secs ahead of me :( Im racing on the Super Speedway btw. All i need is some settings to help me win this race with the wagon. Thanks

    What problems are you specifically having? May I suggest putting the downforce to 52/62,

    and suspension to...

    Spring rate 8.5/10.0
    Ride height is optional
    Bound 3/4
    Rebound 6/7
    Camber 3.0/1.5
    No toe
    Stabilizers 4/5

    Stock ratios are fine, they are stripped from the R33 GT-R anyways. No need to get fancy, as the stock ratios do work with the speed and powerband quite well.

    I had to make the ratios a bit longer, coz of the slipstream i get. I also get alot of understeer around the second corner.

    Ohh, you should have got the 260RS then, the ratios are perfect. The 260RS is WAY better than the other crap one. :) Also the 260 is faster. All "tuner" cars can't be tuned to a high degree.

    EDIT: Get your ass on MSN.

    Then why did you call it the Nismo? :lol: The Autech version is over 600HP tuned, and slap on some RSS tires if ya have to. EDIT: Hope you slapped on that sexy RM to it. Makes the Stagea pretty light.

    Always stiffen the rear and maybe increase the rear toe angle for more turning, if you need it. Also lower the front ride height or something.

    The Stagea is a rather advanced car to try in this series...isn't it kind of heavy? But at Super Speedway the Ai cars drive poorly; i remember they always braked into the first turn ! :lol:

    If you figure out the racing line at the track (which is a very wide out-in-out into the first corner with no brakes, but brake heavily into the 2nd turn) you should be able to outpace the Ai. Make sure to draft them when you get the chance.

    One more thing GT2 has a very specific demand not found in other GTs which is: when you follow cars into corners, beware cuz you won't have any of your downforce to keep you planted, so heavy understeer is always a step away. You basically have to brake early after a draft, if you're still drafting by the time you reach a corner, know what i mean?

    what about brakes? Are you braking into the first turn like the Ai do? Or are you flying into it? You don't need brakes here...

    I think that's the problem. We have faster cornering than AI, we should avoid hitting AI since it can slow us down. Stay at outside, atleast at the first half of the corner, cruise at about 140mph at small corner, around 165mph at large corner. Never hit the wall, especially at second half of the corner.

    We have much faster corner exit speed which make avoiding random AI movement rather hard :ouch:. That TS020 always blocking me :mad:. I wish we have horn in GT2.

    lol. On the first corner, I never go near the AI, they tend to slow down heaps. But as i start entering the second bend, i ran the AI, but i only use them as brakes, i dont really slpistream them around the whole bend..

    Why not try using your actual brakes instead? Why are you even asking for tuning advice if you confuse Gran Turismo with bumper cars? :confused:

    I think that's what make your car can't pass the TS020. we do not need to brake as much as the AI. we can pass them when they brake.

    Using AI car as brake will only slow us down. On equal car, my car usually has better cornering than AI's, even if I use the same tire and without downforce.

    I tried to run both Stageas... The Autech one was good to drive and it was easy to beat the AIs, but the other, 25t, which is less powerful, was too slow to beat them. I finished 6th being in 1.6 seconds.
