Stock Seasonal Time Trial #38 (Pre-1980, Post-1979 2WD RC – 6/11 to 7/09)

Discussion in 'GT6 Seasonal & Quick Match Events' started by Hastatus, Jun 11, 2015.

    This is a thread series for the seasonal time trials that focuses on completing the challenges (i.e. beating the gold target times) with stock versions of the cars. This means that instead of maximizing your PP with upgrades and focusing on getting the fastest laps on the in-game leaderboard, you are attempting to complete the challenges with the bare minimum amount of 'car' and money-spent as is possible.

    With the new more open ended format means that part of the challenge will be finding a stock car that has the lowest PP or lowest price depending on your view. It is also difficult to predict which types of tires a car will come with before purchasing.

    Warning: Some of these challenges are getting to be extreme and should be approached with caution! :banghead:

    In order to participate your car must be stock.

    1) A stock car is essentially any car as it is when purchased from the dealership or won as a prize: it will have had no modifications, added parts, or adjustments done that affect how the car performs.
    2) No oil changes are permitted: if you have had an oil change you must wait until the effects of the HP boost have been removed by driving over 300 km.
    3) You must use the original tire type that came with the car, unless dirt or snow tires are required.
    4) No changes to any “Car Settings” are permitted: they must ALL be left at their default values. [Note: cars that come with Fully Customizable Suspension that were purchased or won prior to patch 1.11 must have the suspension settings restored to default in order to be updated with the new stock suspension settings.]
    5) No SRF or ASM is permitted: other “Driver Assists” are permitted.

    Basically, the ONLY changes you may make to a car include: painting the car and changing a car’s racing number. Any other changes means your car is not stock.

    Stock Seasonal Time Trials #38:

    1979 or Prior / Non-Racing Car Super Lap: 1:36.000 - Madrid - 500PP - SH

    1980 or Later / 2-Wheel Drive Racing Car Super Lap: 1:11.000 - Apricot Hill - 700PP - RH

    The Stock Seasonal Spreadsheet:
    A few members have begun a leaderboard of sorts where individuals will be able to input their info into a public document. This is not so much a competition as a way to compare all sorts of data. At this point the data that is recorded for entries is as follows:

    PP - Lap Time - Car (try to include manufacturer) - Tires - Drive - Power - Weight

    Link to the GTP Stock Seasonal Spreadsheet:

    Notes about the Spreadsheet:
    Tabs will generally be ordered with the newest seasonal events at the left.
    Gold times are ordered based first on PP (lowest PP at the top), and then lap time.
    Bronze and Silver times are ordered based solely on lap time (fastest time at the top): these entries will be grayed out.
    If you are comfortable with entering your info please do so.
    Only create one entry per car for your best lap time for that car.
    To add an empty line: right click (PC) on a gray row number box and select add a row above or below.
    If you make a mistake or change something you did not mean to change hit undo once or a few times.

    My results so far with a wheel and an automatic transmission:

    500PP pre-1980 at Madrid:
    474PP - 1:37.180 - Mazda RX500 '70 - CS - MR - 247hp - 850kg
    481PP - 1:34.613 - Ferrari 512 BB '76 - SH - MR - 354hp - 1400kg
    496PP - 1:32.335 - Ferrari 365 GTB4 '71 - SH - FR - 347hp - 1200kg

    Someone should be able to get gold with the Mazda. Each Ferrari is an easy gold here.

    700PP post-1979 2WD RC at Apricot Hill:
    - 1:10.938 - Nissan GT-R LM NISMO '15 - RH - FF - 604hp - 850kg

    I was nearly a second from gold on my first attempt, but that turned out to be a rare quality first lap. I then put in significantly more effort to get gold: so be warned.

    Was running these while waiting for the thread, great timing :D

    500PP pre-1980 at Madrid:
    - 1'35.022 - Mazda RX500 '70 - CS - MR - 247bhp - 850kg

    Also tried the Dino for 413PP but was about a second off... everything else inbetween handles terribly :guilty:

    700PP post-1979 2WD RC at Apricot Hill:
    - 1'10.707 - Toyota TS030 Hybrid '12 - RH - MR - 529bhp - 900kg

    500PP pre-1980 at Madrid:
    - 1'35.992 - Mazda RX500 '70 - CS - MR - 247bhp - 850kg

    Went to have a go at Apricot Hill and this happened.. 20150611_190424.jpg

    GTEYE brake spring. Luckily I kept the original one handy so will be back in action soon, although modern race cars with their horrible stock suspension settings don't inspire me much (plus it's dark) so if I can find something to get me gold I'll be done.

    Found it...
    700PP post-1979 2WD RC at Apricot Hill:
    - 1:10.051 - Pescarolo C60 Hybride Judd '05 - RH - MR - 905BHP - 900kg

    I'm sure Apricot Hill wasn't as narrow as this last week. This one got me my first win in the mad Tokyo race and I remembered it wasn't too ill-behaved for one of these monsters. Spongy brakes though.

    I should have taken @mcsqueegy 's word for it but I tried out a couple of in-betweeners at Madrid. Shelby 350 - I thought maybe sports tyres might give it the edge but no, it's slower everywhere than the Mazda. Anniversary Alpine A110 - Probably barely capable of silver but great fun. I might return to this with silver as a goal.
