    Holy thread resurrection! :eek:
    I'm currently hoping to join jbrennen's perfect A-spec game club, and have just hit 1/3 completion:

    But useless in every conceivable way for getting into "The 1st June Society". ;)
    Read the criteria in the first post, you can't afford to waste a gameday anywhere, no wings, no rims, and certainly no unnecessary car purchases.
    There's a list in post #1 of all the cars you must buy in order to complete this task, and the SRT4 isn't on there.
    You win or acquire plenty of FF cars in order to complete the races required.

    Nice work Smallhorses, this thread definitely deserves a resurrection. Also, I just calculated an average Aspec of 123.019 for the 156 races. That seems impressive considering in many races you'd have no choice under these rules but to go for overkill.

    Nice work mate, hope this bump gets some newer users to read through and once again marvel at the amazing potential of this five year old game.

    EDIT: Before anyone asks, that Aspec average accounts for the Missions as well. Quite probably still wrong however.

    Looking good Smallhorses!

    I would like to add my congratulations to Famine and jbrennen for still being the only members of this exclusive (and previously secret) Society!

    Like Smallhorses, I am currently working on a game that is trying to use as few "purchased" cars as possible. However, sadly, my game is not a "pure" 1st of June Society" game. When I first started my game, I did not know that this Society existed, and therefore did not completely comply with its restrictions. My game already has about 20 extra days. I wasted a number of game days on the following actions:

    Sold 2 Toyota RSC Rally Cars
    Sold Daimler Motor Carriage
    Sold Aston Martin DB9 Coupe (duplicate)
    Sold Citroen 2CV Type A (duplicate)
    Sold Auto Union V16 Type C
    Sold Toyota Vitz RS Turbo (duplicate)
    Re-ran Capri Rally twice
    Practiced at El Capitan prior to Endurance Race
    Practiced at Test Course prior to Like the Wind Race
    Purchased 3D Type BB wing for Opel Speedster
    Two Blank days from License exits
    Retired without winning Mission 14
    Retired without winning Mission 24

    Anyway, I am continuing on with my less than perfect game since I have reached 75%.

    Hopefully others can use my experience as a blueprint for actions that one should not do if entry to this exclusive Society is wished!

    Game progress:
    Percent complete: 75.2%
    Car with most miles: Minolta Toyota 88CV: 390 miles
    Car with least miles: Daihatsu Midget II D-Type: 3.5 miles
    Car with most A-spec points: Peugeot 206 RC: 1205 A-spec pts
    Car with least A-spec points: Audi LeMans quattro: 10 A-spec pts
    A-spec points: 29,343
    Cars driven: 64

    I was able to use the Isuzu Piazza XE '81 for the 80's Festival Race in the Japanese Hall (thanks Smallhorses).

    I was recently stuck for a while with no eligible car for the 90's Challenge Race in the Japanese Hall, but eventually I was able to win the race with a Sileighty '98 that I had won in the Silvia Sisters Race.

    I have completed all of the Manufacturers' One-Make Races except for the Saleen S7 Cup. I have run out of money to buy one! So I will run a couple of the endurance races.

    I am currently 30 laps into the 200 mile race at Laguna Seca in my Mercedes CLK Touring Car, and have a one lap lead.

    Enjoy the racing,
    GTsail

    Yeah, you pretty much have to start out from the beginning going for a minimum game days 100% game.

    Things like, don't retire from a mission -- it's okay to pause and retry, but don't go back to the mission menu... (Pause and retry comes in real handy especially on Mission 34...) Don't enter any license test more than once, and don't enter any of the coffee breaks at all. (When you finish any license numbered 8, don't click to go to the next test -- it will take you to the coffee break.)

    Don't buy any wings. Don't sell a car... ever. Don't buy any car other than the 32 that you need to buy. No practice, no machine test, no family cup, nothing like that. If you want to practice on a track, easiest way is to practice then reset and reload the game, but if you want, you can enter a championship which starts at the track where you want to practice, go practice/qualify as long as you want, then quit the championship without starting the race. (Or go practice in arcade mode, I guess... I never tried that, but probably works.)

    Note that depending on how you do things, money might be tight at times. If I were going to do it again, and avoid money problems, I'd first knock out all of the driving missions, then go knock out all of the Special Condition Hall -- make it a priority to get the Lancia Delta S4 rally car first, then use that for most of the 63 races in the Special Condition Hall. There's a total of 735,000 credits to win there. Go race enough elsewhere to get to 25% completion, most likely by knocking off some of the manufacturer's races which require specific, but fairly cheap cars. Then go run the Nurburgring 24 hour endurance race -- the Delta S4 can win it handily if you put on street tires, or you could pick something a little more challenging. Now you should have a Formula GT car and well over a million credits. Go knock off the rest of the Beginner and Professional halls; you shouldn't have any money issues doing that, and unlock the Extreme hall. Go run the FGT championship, and your money issues are a thing of the past. :)

    Greetings again -
    Not being very pleased with my 20 wasted game days, I started a new game last night! I will use the 75% complete game as a test bed.

    I have completed 64 licenses, 10 Missions and 7 Beginner Hall races, so I'm at 2.8% complete. WOW!

    I do have a question though for those that have traveled this road further than I:

    Looking at my game diary, everything looks good except for day 1, which is blank. The first thing I did with this game was to pass the first 8 licenses and then saved the game. This is reflected on days 2 thru 9, but day 1 is blank. I then competed license tests 9 thru 16 and was awarded the VW Lupo 1.4 '02 race car. This is reflected on days 10 thru 18. Uncle Harry (see below) saw the same issue a couple years ago with his game.

    Did anyone else see this or find an explanation?

    I know I did not exit the License Tests without winning license # 1 since I was paying extra care with this game save. My only thought was that a day was used when the game gave me $10k to start, but I did not see anyone else mention this.

    Puzzled,
    GTsail

    Hi GTsail290,

    I've just been and checked my current "1st of June" run, and indeed, you're correct, Day 1 (April 1st) is blank, the first activity my save shows is B-Licence No. 1 Gold Medal Acquired, Time: 10.032 on April 2nd. I can only think that they didn't want to make April Fool's Day the starting point and began the game on April 2nd instead (for no readily apparent reason!)

    Nice to have a "running mate" in this quest, now as it always helps with motivation, just like alhajoth's concurrent no-NOS 100,000 A-spec run helped push me along to my own completion of that game.

    See you at the finish line! [​IMG]

    Thanks for checking Smallhorses and Famine.

    I could not understand why I had a blank day when I was being so careful while doing the License Tests.

    I worried that I needed to re-start my game again.

    Seeing that the blank day is April 1st, I guess its a joke on us!

    Respectfully,

    I used Lotus Elise '00 for virtually all of the dirt & ice races in Easy & Normal Special Conditions hall. Unmodified except for Dirt or Snow tyres for the Easy races, and generally between 87 - 168 points per race, and with either no modifications except for Dirt or Snow tyres, Stage 1 or Stage 2 Turbo fitted for the Normal races for between 102 - 200 points per race.

    I didn't do the Tarmac rally stages with it, as I had already done them in other cars that I'd been driving at the time. (BMW 120d '04 for Easy, and Nismo 270R '94 for Normal.)

    I got Special Conditions Hall out of the way as soon as possible as it's my least favourite thing in GT4. Now with the Lancia Delta HF Integrale Rally Car '92 & Mitsubishi CZ-3 Tarmac Rally Car '03 I've finished off the Normal level and all the Dirt & Snow races in Hard too, and after winning the Renault Clio Sport Trophy V6 24V Race Car '00 I was able to knock out all the Hard Tarmac races for 178 A-spec points a piece when matched up against the Renault 5 Maxi Turbo Rally Car '85.

    I'm imagining the Delta S4 went a long way to securing some of the single A-spec point races that jbrennen was seeking in his "lowest total" game.

    Yeah, it's a beast. Love it.

    I know it's not your "thing", but I did all 63 Special Condition races for 200 pts each using the Dodge RAM. Kind of interesting when you get to things like Grand Canyon Reverse or Tsukuba Wet, or even Citta di Aria Reverse (on that one, it's tough to get the lead, not so bad once you're there...)



    EDIT: Obviously I was thinking of the wrong endurance race about the Delta S4 being able to win 'Ring 24 hours if you throw on street tires... That race allows race tires of course.

    This thread inspired me to get back into the Aspec hunt. I found the last car/race attempted and when entering saw the date:
    The GT4 gods smile on me, I'll stay up and try and get a few thousand points.

    GTSail, you are hardcore, man. Good luck with this, not that you'll need it.

    You're right! I'm aiming for a no Ram & no NOS perfect game now. ;)

    Given that Austin343 just got the Nurb' 24hr done in a stock BMW M5 on street tyres for 200 points, I don't doubt that the Delta S4 on street tyres could easily handle it, although it'd definitely be an absolute handful. :scared:
    I found jdw's suggestion of using the Honda Element useful in my previous game for cleaning up the Special Conditions Hall, as well as the Mazda Crossport. Never did do GC Rally (Hard) for 200 points though, as I only wanted to hit exactly 100,000 A-spec, and wasn't shooting for maximum.

    I'm a huge fan of the Delta Rally Cars though, they remind me of going out on cold November nights to watch the Lombard RAC Rally (as it was then) when I was growing up, and it's why I picked the regular Delta as my ride of choice to take on the Hard level this time, until it came unstuck and I used the easy-option CZ-3 Tarmac Rally Car from Mitsubishi to do the cleanup.

    In this game I am trying to stay away from the Dodge Ram as well, since I'm not after extremely high A-spec points.

    However, just in case you want to try something different, the Ford SVT F-150 Lightning will win the Normal and Hard level tarmac Special Condition Races for 200 A-spec points.

    My new game is progressing nicely, but has a cash shortage!

    Game progress:
    Percent complete: 15.7%
    Day: 193
    A-spec points: 11,509
    Car with most miles: NISMO 270R '94: 54.0 miles
    Car with least miles: Subaru Impreza Rally Car '99: 4.3 miles
    Car with most A-spec points: Pontiac Sunfire GXP Concept '02: 1125 A-spec pts
    Car with least A-spec points: Lancia Delta HF Integrale Rally Car '92: 48 A-spec pts

    I have just finished the 4WD Challenge in the Beginner Hall using the Audi TT Coupe 1.8 quattro '00, and had a great battle against a variety of powerful 4WD cars that tried to leave me in their dust to no avail.

    Right now I using the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution IV Rally Car '97 for the Normal level Special Condition races, and will see how far it takes me.

    Another game update (from 7/6):
    Percent complete: 25.2%
    Game Day: 261
    A-spec points: 17,553
    Race wins: 114
    Car with most miles: NISMO 270R '94, 54.0 miles
    Car with fewest miles: Subaru Impreza Rally Car '99, 4.3 miles
    Car with most A-spec points: Lotus Elise Type 72 '01, 1,215 pts
    Car with least A-spec points: Nissan Option Stream Z '04, 5 pts

    I've just finished a nice pitched battle in the World Classic Car Series (Pro Hall). I was using the Nissan Skyline 2000GT-B S54A '67 prize car.

    Another game update (from 7/9):
    Percent complete: 30.2%
    Game day: 302
    A-spec points: 22,280
    Race wins: 142
    Car with most miles: Lotus Elise 111R '04, 86.3 miles
    Car with fewest miles: Daihatsu Midget II D-Type '98, 3.6 miles
    Car with most A-spec points: Lotus Elise 111R '04, 1400 pts
    Car with least A-spec points: Nissan Option Stream Z '04, 5 pts

    I just had a fun race series using my Suzuki Kei Works '02 at the World Compact Series (Pro Hall). I was able to gather 200 points at each race using 80 horsepower, S2 tires and 65kg of ballast. Against an even field with: Peugeot 106 S16, VW Lupo 1.4, Nissan Micra, Toyota Vitz RS 1.5, Opel Tigra 1.6i

    Enjoy the racing,

    An update from me, now that I've passed 50% in terms of game days in the quest, (420 out of 835) even though my game completion isn't near 50% yet:

    Percent complete: 39.3%
    Car with most miles: Mazda RX-8 Concept (Type-I) '01 191.0 miles
    Car with least miles: Daihatsu Midget II D-type '98: 3.7 miles
    Car with most points: Lotus Elise '00: 4495
    Car with least points: Subaru 360 '58: 83
    A-spec points: 31852
    Cars driven: 22
    Days elapsed: 420
    Cars Owned: 116 (Prizecars: 84)
    80 Gold Licences & 34 missions (+prizecar deliveries) completed in first 134 days.

    I have now bought all the cars that I'll need to complete the game, have finished Special Conditions Hall completely, haven't touched the Extreme Hall (not unlocked), American Hall or Enduros yet (saving the best for last! :lol:) and am currently working my way through the Manufacturer Events, Beginner & Professional Halls and the European & Japanese Regional Halls.

    Looking good Smallhorses!

    Racking up the miles with your Mazda RX-8 Concept Type I '01, I see! Nice! My RX-8 Concept only has 93.2 miles after using it for the following:
    Mazda One Make "Club RE"
    Mazda One Make "NR-A RX-8 Cup"
    Pro Hall - Race of NA Sports
    You must have found another use for it!

    My game update:
    Percent complete: 40.4%
    Game Day: 374
    A-spec points: 30,193
    Race wins: 197
    Car with most miles: Suzuki Kei Works '02: 100.0 miles
    Car with fewest miles: Daihatsu Midget II D-Type '98: 3.6 miles
    Car with most A-spec pts: Suzuki Kei Works '02: 2228 A-spec pts
    Car with least A-spec pts: Nissan Option Stream Z '04: 5 A-spec pts

    I am currently working on the Volkswagon Lupo Cup with my VW Lupo 1.4 '02

    Another game update (7/19)
    Percent complete: 51.7%
    Game day: 459
    A-spec points: 39,062
    Race wins: 260
    Car with most miles: Lotus Elise 111R '04: 134.3 miles
    Car with fewest miles: Daihatsu Midget II D-Type '98: 3.6 miles
    Car with most A-spec pts: Suzuki Kei Works '02: 2228 A-spec pts
    Car with least A-spec pts: Nissan Option Stream Z '04: 5 A-spec pts

    I reached the 50% mark and was awarded the Jaguar XJR-9 Race Car using my BMW M3 GTR '03 in the Supercar Festival (Pro Hall). I was able to gather 200 points at each race using 474 horsepower, S2 tires and 115kg of ballast. Against a high-powered field as follows: Cadillac CIEN, Saleen S7, Ford GT '05, VW W12 Nardo Concept, Spyker C8 Laviolette. The Cadillac CIEN is a little slow in the corners, but reaches your back bumper on the long straights!

    Enjoy the racing,

    Just slightly off-topic, but talking about playing the game under restrictive rules, this might be of interest...

    A while back, I tried to see how far I could get in the game while abiding by the Japanese "Gentleman's Agreement" -- the idea that they wouldn't advertise power figures > 280 PS. So I started a new game, and other than licenses and driving missions, wouldn't drive any car with more than 280 PS shown on the settings screen. It was definitely interesting. :) Unfortunately, under this restriction, you can never race the Supercar Festival, and so you can never even get to the Gran Turismo World Championship or any of the Extreme Hall. But with 280 PS and less, you can actually complete a fair bit of the game.

    Hmmm, I've been reading up on this thread, and recently restarted GT4 for only my second run through the game, ever. I figured I'd try and follow this thread, and aim for the lowest possible number of days while getting "perfect" (all golds).

    ...and now I see we're supposed to skip the Coffee Breaks? Damnit. I hated them when I first played, and hate them now, but in the interest of getting all golds, I have forced myself through the first 4. Nooooooo!

    I also have the sneaking suspicion I have an extra day somewhere in there... if you don't always select retry in a license test (either pausing or running through the test), you gain a day by heading back into the test's menu, no? Ugh. Curses!

    Once you enter a license test at its main menu, it's a single day counted, regardless of how many times you try the test, etc. If you try the test zero times, that's a day. If you try the test 58 times, quitting to the menu each time, that's a day.

    Same for the coffee breaks. Enter the coffee break menu, it's a day.

    The driving missions are different. Each time that you start a mission and then return to the mission menu, that's a day. It'll show up on the diary as either a finish or a "retire"... If you pause and retry before the end of the mission, the mission you were on is basically discarded as if it never existed, and a day doesn't expire.


    Last year, I completed a self-challenge where I got 80 gold licenses in the minimum number of days while filling all of my license leaderboards with gold license times. Basically, instead of going into each license and don't leave until you get gold, it was going into each license and don't leave until you get 10 golds. But I did return to the license menu between attempts, even saved some license replays, etc. By the way, the most frustrating license tests for getting 10 golds in one session were the two slalom tests (IB-6 and IB-7) and the Skyline through the Fuji 90's chicane (IA-3).

    Hmmm... thanks J. I've done each license in a session: Turn on the system, go straight to a license, and start on the first test. I'd keep hitting retry post-test until I got gold, then in the screen where we have the options to save replays, go to options, etc etc, go to the next test through that. Once I finished the last test, I exit out, collect my 3 cars, save, and shut down. So on and so on...

    Okay, so at least I haven't messed up yet, with exception to the Coffee Breaks being completed, since I guess I could've skipped them. Will keep the issue about Missions in mind when I wrap up S License (which is always the easiest license, it seems).

    The idea of completely filling up each tests with my times is insane, holy dedication!

    In my version (PAL), all I have to do to enter the Supercar Festival is tune a car. It doesn't need to be >493hp in stock form, you can tune it to that level.

    I did indeed. ;)
    It knocked off all 5 Japan Championship races for 181 A-spec apiece, in addition to the races that you mentioned, although I only used it for 2 of the Race of NA Sports events, as I'd taken down 3 of them with the Hyundai HCD6 '01 that I'd used to finish of the MR Challenge Events, and Hyundai Sports Festival.

    Greetings all -
    After the recent discussion in the Option Stream Z thread about using the Chevy Camaro LM Race Car in the "All Japan GT Championship", I took my own Camaro LM for a spin in the "Camaro Meeting" One Make Race and won 3 A-spec points. Overkill?

    I recently completed a nice group of races in the "Stars & Stripes" (American Hall) Series with my Ford RS200 '84, each for 200 points.

    My game update:
    Percent complete: 60.2%
    Game Day: 528
    A-spec points: 46,506
    Race wins: 309
    Car with most miles: Lotus Elise 111R '04: 150.4 miles
    Car with fewest miles: Daihatsu Midget II D-Type '98: 3.6 miles
    Car with most A-spec pts: Lotus Elise 111R '04: 2600 pts
    Car with fewest A-spec pts: Chevy Camaro LM Race Car '01: 3 pts

    From here on in, my game progress will slow as I now need to do some of the Endurance races and longer Championships with race cars. Next up I think is a run at Laguna Seca since I want/need a Ford GT40 Race Car.

    Another game update (from 8/2):
    Percent complete: 70.1%
    Game Day: 593
    A-spec points: 55,627
    Race Wins: 362
    Car with most miles: Jaguar XJR-9 Race Car '88: 372.5 miles
    Car with fewest miles: Daihatsu Midget D-Type II '98: 3.6 miles
    Car with most A-spec points: Lotus Elise 111R '04: 2600 pts
    Car with fewest A-spec points: Chevy Camaro LM Race Car: 3 pts

    I have just completed the Gran Turismo World Championship (Pro Hall) with my Jaguar XJR-9 Race Car. It was a tough battle since the Jaguar eats its rear tires and I did not have a pit stop advantage over the AI. Only a few A-spec points were gathered against the following lineup: Peugeot 905, Jaguar XJR-9, Pescarolo Courage C60, Bentley Speed 8, Toyota GT-ONE.

    Another game update (from 8/9):
    Percent complete: 80.1%
    Game Day: 684
    A-spec points: 64,562
    Race wins: 418
    Car with most miles: Jaguar XJR-9 Race Car '88: 372.5 miles
    Car with fewest miles: Daihatsu Midget D-Type II '98: 3.6 miles
    Car with most A-spec points: BMW M3 GTR '03: 3000 pts
    Car with fewest A-spec points: Chevy Camaro LM Race Car: 3 pts

    I just finished a very nice battle against a strong group of LM race cars in the Dream Car Series (Extreme Hall) with my BMW M3 GTR Race Car, and was able to gather a nice chunk of A-spec points (the full 2000 on offer). I had to abort and re-run the race at the Test Course against a very fast Ford GT LM Spec II Race Car. I ran the first race without qualifying and the Ford GT just ran away from my underpowered BMW. Staying in the draft at 205mph is fun when you know that leaving the draft will just end any chance you might have of winning.

    Another game update (from 8/23):
    Percent complete: 90.3%
    Game Day: 759
    A-spec points: 74,034
    Race wins: 471
    Car with most miles: Opel Speedster '00: 891.4 miles
    Car with fewest miles: Daihatsu Midget D-Type II '98: 3.6 miles
    Car with most A-spec points: BMW M3 GTR '03: 3000 pts
    Car with fewest A-spec points: Chevy Camaro LM Race Car: 3 pts

    My most recent race was the Infineon 2hr, 45min Endurance Race, where I took on the Sauber Mercedes C9 with my Nissan GT-R Concept Race Car. Fairly straightforward 200 point win using a combination of R1, R2 and R3 tires.

    I have also just completed all of the Special Condition races, saving the Grand Canyon-Hard for last! The Dodge Ram was never used!

    Enjoy the racing,

    Wow, I'm progressing nowhere near as quickly as GTsail290 :eek:

    Here's my latest update:

    Percent complete: 50.0%
    Car with most miles: Mazda RX-8 Concept (Type-I) '01 191.0 miles
    Car with least miles: Daihatsu Midget II D-type '98: 3.7 miles
    Car with most points: Lotus Elise '00: 4495
    Car with least points: Subaru 360 '58: 83
    A-spec points: 40014
    Cars driven: 32
    Days elapsed: 496
    Cars Owned: 132 (Prizecars: 100)
    80 Gold Licences & 34 missions (+prizecar deliveries) completed in first 134 days.

    So far only Beginner Hall & Special Conditions Halls are completed. Endurance Hall is untouched and I'm working through the other halls bit-by-bit as appropriate in whichever cars happen to be appropriate as I'm completing the Manufacturers events too. Still haven't touched and don't intend to touch any NOS for this run either, though it'll mean I'll not get near GTsail290's A-spec total.

    Looks like your Opel Speedster got a good workout GTsail290! What've you used that for?

    I like your game's round numbers!

    My Opel Speedster got a nice workout at the 9hours of Tsukuba after driving around New York for 200 miles (looking for parking spots). I think it needs an oil change!:idea:

    Have you noticed that my Daihatsu Midget only has 3.6 miles while yours has 3.7 miles? Did you do some donuts after your win?

    Respectfully,

    I imagine that you hit "start" soon after the race ended in order to return to the main menu more quickly, while Smallhorses let the game continue for its usual fifteen seconds before fading out on its own.

    :lol:

    I think you can tune the car above the 493hp required to get in and then once in the menu for the race, de-tune the car back to below your 280hp.


    On topic, Smallhorses and GTsail, It is great to see your dedication to a marvelous game, paying you more dividends.
    I feel that I may have to get back in the the 'chair' so to speak and become a member of this society too.

    A wise move by Smallhorses to allow the Daihatsu Midget to cool-down after such a taxing race.

    I may have irretrievably damaged my Midget by turning off its high-reving motor before allowing the oil to circulate properly and cool off its highly tuned 34HP engine.

    I will ask my pit crew to run a dyno test and search for any missing horsepower.

    See you at the races
