    A proper brake balance with fix that.

    Proper braking technique will help much more than the brake balance. In the video i drive with no ABS and the balance is 5/5. Look up "degressive braking".

    Also, the ABS only limits what you can do on entry, i always prefer to drive without it.

    I absolutely LOVE this car! I've posted extremely fast lap times in this thing. I took it around Tsukuba (Hot Version style!:sly:), and I clocked a very low 57 second time with my "extra special tune". I can't remember the exact time, but I think it was 57.1-3; somewhere around there. You just need to learn the car, just like any, really. Hope you give it a second chance, OP!:):tup:

    Agreed. The problem with ABS in GT5, it is unrealistic plain and simple. So much hidden stability factors involved with it on.

    Yes. I also don't feel anything about the ABS so that's why I only set it to 1 and reason for that is everytime I brake w/o it, the tranny looks like it will disengage and then sounds that it wouldn't bite IMO.

    w/o ABS on proper LSD, brake bias, and transmission driving is pretty easy, most of my "tuned" cars bias is one of these 3/2 - 3/3 - 4/3 - 4/4 and some worst case tunes had to use lower brake bias.

    Driving NoABS is really much more fun than driving with ABS, you can feel car much more better.

    GTV0819: downshifting w/o ABS is most critical part of driving, every shift must hit on correct rev area or it will lock tires or slip your clutch.

    Blimey where did this ridiculous revival come from.

    This was my first review where I was expressing entirely my opinion and trying to show it to everyone else for both humor and a letting go of my rage.

    Come to think of it, before my PS3 died 8 months ago now, I was going to write a new and revised review for the S2k Turbo in a less exaggerated and more sensible way (in my actual reviews thread though). Like, with deep metaphorical comparisons and stuff...

    It's not an awful car in many ways to actually drive, but I hated it then and even now still could never even try to love it.

    But what the hey. The thread just came again out of nowhere and I'm not sure why.

    I actually like to drive this car, fun, seems good for drifting. Agreed on the AI overpowered car though, how is it that this thing can keep up with my fully tuned Zonda R. I've tested with a friend of mine a fully tuned S2000 Turbo against my Zonda and it eats the S2000 for breakfast anyday. By that logic a stock S2000 Turbo should be left biting the dust. Yet everytime there it is stalking me. I mean really? Damn thing seems like a magnet attracted to whatever car I'm driving.

    I kind of like this car. I recently used it for the Tsukuba 9-hour endurance. I had all of the assists off with sports tires and it wasn't a handful or grate on my nerves. Ran consistent 0.59's throughout and pitted around every 80 laps or thereabouts. 'Course, driving Tsukuba doesn't allow you to really see what it's capable of doing.

    Hmmm, sounds like a certain AE86 that roams Akina. Takumi why you leave the Mountain?

    Even if I have nothing against the S2K GT1 Turbo, I actually agree with you about the AI part. Way back in early 2012. I unlocked the fourth series in A-Spec. I used my Ferrari 458 Italia (the best car I had back then) and I started the Tuned Car Series Championship. I don't know if it is my driving or the S2K that joined the championship, but I struggled pretty bad. I can't believe I used a Stealth Mazda 787B to beat that car.

    It's the S2K more, probably. It has an unfair advantage on the rest.

    Oh yes, I will be reviewing this again under GT6's new physics engine. But this time I'll do it more fairly and not crash it at the end. Imprezas are for crashing on GT6 (along with the occasional Skyline GTS).

    I actually planned to do a revised review of it myself on GT5 a while back but then I couldn't be bothered. But I did come to an interesting conclusion on it.

    I hope they did something on the S2K-AI thing you mentioned in the OP, in GT6...

    Due to my phone being snafued I lost all that I typed and not writting it again. So basically I disagree strongly. By far one of the best cars in the game period a true giant killer. Amuse got that powerhouse down pat. Out of 1200 cars and this is the worst is outlandish.

    ...It's been a while.

    I haven't tried the S2k Turbo in GT6. I don't want to.

    It's not as if it's a terrible car, but the morals behind it are just awful. Which is why it doesn't allure to me in any way.

    I was going through GT5 threads just for fun. This one is probably the funniest.
