    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.

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

    600PP Italian at Ascari:
    584PP
    - 2:14.935 - Ferrari Enzo '02 - SH - MR - 658hp - 1255kg
    512PP - 2:17.119 - Lamborghini Miura '67 - SH - MR 349hp - 980kg
    496PP - 2:17.346 - Ferrari 365 GTB4 '71 - SH - FR - 347hp - 1200kg

    I managed to get gold with the Enzo on my first lap so this time should be easy to beat. I tried several other cars but they were either extremely unstable or barely able to pass silver. The Miura and 365 handle well on this course but do not have enough speed in the straights for me to make time; they should be doable by someone.


    500PP RC at Laguna Seca:
    497PP
    - 1:27.866 - Lotus Elise Race Car '96 - RH - MR - 173hp - 645kg

    I didn't see any other obvious cars in my garage that would come close. This car was barely able to get gold while taking many corners on this course flat out while other cars I tried just didn't have the same grip for such driving.

    500PP RC at Laguna Seca:
    484PP
    - 1:27.851 - Toyota ALTEZZA Touring Car - RH - FR - 300hp - 1000kg

    It may look bulky but handle surprisingly well.




    600PP Italian at Ascari:
    496PP - 2:14.993 - Ferrari 365 GTB4 '71 - SH - FR - 347hp - 1200kg



    Got it by a split second.

    485PP - 1:27.950 - Honda S2000 LM Race Car - RH - FR - 315hp - 1050kg

    Last time we were here the gold time was two seconds more generous. That narrows the possibilities somewhat.
    I tried the Altezza for a while but was still three tenths off when I switched to the Honda, which was lot easier than the Toyota and maybe easier than the Lotus.
    Nice laps @BWM.
