    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.

    Fastest Time at Tsukuba last time:
    371pp
    - 1'13.651 - MGF '97 - CH - MR - 142bhp - 1070kg (mcsqueegy)

    Best PP at Apricot Hill last time:
    615PP
    - 1'10.707 - Toyota TS030 Hybrid '12 - RH - MR - 529bhp - 900kg (mcsqueegy)



    My results with a wheel and an automatic transmission:

    400PP CH at Tsukuba:
    This event requires going 2 seconds faster. None of the times set last time came close, so it will be challenging for anyone to find a car. I barely made gold with a de-tuned Dino.


    700PP post-1979 2WD RC at Apricot Hill:
    655PP - 1:11.406 - Nissan GT-R LM NISMO '15 - RH - FF - 604hp - 880kg
    615PP - 1:11.984 - Toyota TS030 Hybrid '12 - RH - MR - 529hp - 900kg
    691PP - 1:09.335 - Pescarolo C60 Hybride Judd '05 - RH - MR - 905hp - 900kg

    I couldn't get gold with the Nissan like I did last time. It is easy with the Pescarolo.

    I'm trying the berlinette as well, didn't do so hot on my first attempts, just to tired from work. I'm going to give it another go tomorrow...

    679PP - 1:10.655 - Audi R8 Race Car '01 - RH - MR - 783hp - 900kg



    Sad to hear Audi quitting WEC. Want to give one of their cars a run.
    Tried the PlayStation Team one too but it seems understeer more.

    Very impressive. I just had my first go at this and could only manage just under 1:12. Only half an hour and no beers though. That's my excuse.
