Stock Seasonal Time Trial #57 (pre-1980 American, GT3 – 10/06 to 12/01)

Discussion in 'GT6 Seasonal & Quick Match Events' started by Hastatus, Oct 6, 2016.

    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.

    These events are repeats but the gold times are 1 second different: the GT3 event is 1 second faster and the pre-1980 American event is 1 second slower.

    Last time the fastest record for the GT3 event was:
    592PP - 1:57.832 - BMW Z4 GT3 ’11 - RH - MR - 508hp - 1190kg (Stotty)

    Last time the lowest PP car was:
    529PP - 1:35.863 - Ford GT40 Mark I 15th Anniv '66 - SH - MR - 374hp - 1080kg (Hastatus)

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

    550PP Pre-1980 American at Trial Mountain:
    - 1:37.392 - Ford GT 40 Mark I '66 - SH - MR - 354hp - 1080kg

    630PP GT3 at Suzuka 2014:
    617PP - 1:58.068 - Audi R8 LMS ultra 15th Anniv '72 - RH - MR - 591hp - 1250kg

    I cannot gold this with a stock GT3 car: I am at least a second away; last time I had a 1:57.923 with this car. I had to use RS to complete the event.

    550PP Pre-1980 American at Trial Mountain:
    - 1:41.942 - Shelby GT350R '65 - SH - FR - 305hp - 1268kg

    Went for the R version with its one extra point but I dare say it can be done in the other one.
    pretend racer and Hastatus like this.

    You're not fooling around.

    I left you one though.

    550PP Pre-1980 American at Trial Mountain:
    - 1:41.766 - Mercury Cougar XR-7 '67 - SH - FR - 319hp - 1418kg

    Wasn't too hard in the Cougar, which surprised me, so maybe it's possible with the El Camino or one of the Camaros.

    I had a go at Suzuka with the Anniversary Audi but struggled to get under two minutes

    El Camino no, Camaro yes.

    550PP Pre-1980 American at Trial Mountain:
    - 1:40.413 - Chevrolet Camaro Z28 '69 - SH - FR - 289hp - 1415kg

    This Camaro is significantly more grippy compare with other 45xPP i tried.
    Plymouth AAR Cuda 340 Six Barrel was fine too but a bit lack in power.

    And for the El Camino 42.5 was the closest i could get

    Maybe someone could find that extra 0.5

    630PP GT3
    Checked the old video i only got 57.8xx last time with R8 15th Anni
