    Impressive list, took a while no dought! As for the "mods ruin it comments", I disagree! I play the game trying to beat lap times, and if I know I have another 200 horse power I can have, I'll take it. This is how I always played GT's, and that's how I'll continue. Good to see that others around here think and do the same. I'm glad to see the purists like to have stock cars and that's how they enjoy the game, but don't try forcing it on others. Well done on your list, it's fairly comprehensive now. I love the way the thread's called "according to stormbringer!" lets people know this is what you think, and how it works for you.

    Well done:tup:

    Your "COD Improvment via X1" is much like Wipeout's Zone mode, where you're forced to steer with no brakes around a circuit until you crash:dunce:

    Doesn't help as much as coffee does though:D

    Thanks for the positive feedback guys :tup:

    Machate, the x1 helped me immensely. It is a bit of a b****h in the beginning, but it gets easier. It's all about training your right thumb to make adjustments smoothly. I did this for a month and never had to do it again. Worked wonders for me. Kontrol freeks helps too.

    Sorry mate, but I don't agree with you, regarding the Ferrari 599 '06 is a bad car..

    I have a full tuned Ferrari 599 '06 and with this one I win the season events for Ferrari.
    Personally I love this car (after some adjustments).

    If you want to try my Ferrari 599 '06, I can put it online for you.
    Just send a FR to BlueSkyHawk.

    It's either that, or he's your long lost Siamese twin


    How does it compare to the other Ferrari cars?

    storm, the more i play this game the more i agree with your initial post. :bowdown: How did you ever got to be so accurate in describing the cars abilities? Were you a Swiss watch in a previous life?

    I dunno dude, my comments are pretty vague. People here have varying levels of agreement with my list, I suppose you're the one guy who agrees 100% with my experience and results. I'm happy it helped :):tup:

    Incredible. Thank you very very much for this thread. It is an amazing job.
    I was wondering if the F12007 was a good choice...Anyway, any suggestions for Nurburgring 4hrs?

    F2007 is a very, very good machine.

    The f2007 is the better of the 2. I like the way the f10 looks though.
    And that's a pretty cool thread for car choices at the ring 4hr.

    Thanks to you all. I'll buy the F2007...it's just that it is too expensive! And anyway, I don't think I'll ever get to level 40 (unless they keep doing things like nascar seasonal events) so I'll never need to buy the X1 (I have the one you get for bronze...).

    The F2007 might be too fast. I was thinking of using the maclaren F1 94 or the M3 GTR.

    Oh, and since you guys know much more than I do, is there any real difference between the redbull X2010 and the one on the dealership? Greaaaaaat car.

    The problem with the Ferrari f1s is the limited use in the game. I hope you're aware of that before you spend all that hard earned cash.

    I think there Might be a Tiny difference in performance specs in the redbulls.

    Possibly I over-looked it but have you reviewed the Spoon Civic? I did notice the Spoon S2k.
    One of my most enjoyable cars to drive at Nurburgring. I love the sound of the Spoon Civic. Get's "light" going over some bumps.
    I thought the Spoon Civic would only be good on the twisty tracks, until an online race shuffled to High Speed Ring. A few minutes later and after an easy win over BMW's and 'Vettes (race set at 475PP) I was shocked. Could practically take every turn at High Speed Ring just letting off the gas, maybe barely tapping the brakes.

    How about a Spoon Civic ranking?

    Much thanks.

    I think I have the spoon civic in my garage somewhere, but I might be wrong.
    Sounds promising. Will look for it and add it asap :tup:

    F2007 is the best car I've driven on GT5. I always thought the X2010 was the best one but now that I drove the F2007...We need more F1 events!

    Initially, I was curious about the stormer, but I know it's gonna be too heavy to compete with the others. What are the fully modded stats on it?

    After engine/chassis rebuild (not necessary, I realised too late.... only had 140 miles on it!!):

    Fully modded (everything possible added, no turbo available, supercharged, stage 3 tune, max weight reduction)

    HP, 686 (might get higher after a couple more races)
    Torque 738 ft/lb
    PP 559
    Weight 1,890 Kg.

    Can't add aero kits.

    Tested on Trial Mountain and 20 seconds plus off my 10th fastest....

    Took it to the seasonal 4WD race, and loved it! Big bulldog of a car! Very, very tail happy, so needs a tune... handles the sand at Laguna Seca well :)

    I would love one as my every day car!

    Cool, Those stats don't seem too bad. Was expecting it to weigh over 2tonnes. I'll buy/check it out if I find it in my ucd.

    We should give to a tune its not good enough for online races but with a good.tune you might just succeed.
    Anyone got a tune
