    This is where we put our driving skills to the test, every 2 weeks a car will be chosen to take on a race in the
    POLYPHONY DIGITAL CUP.
    The winner from the previous round gets the right to choose the next car.
    Every 4th round of the NO-TUNE CHALLENGE, there will be an event using VISION GRAN TURISMO cars. The cars that will be selected are VGT cars that can't be tuned. They will be raced at another event/track.
    As you can't tune vehicles in this event, it focuses on our driving ability not our tuning ability.
    Race 1, Tsukuba - go your hardest / no replay needed, but send then in.

    Race 2, Twin Ring Motegi East Course - will remain but the winner of this round has to sent me a replay of the winning time showing they didn't cut any of these corners.

    It will be judged by me and me only, so PM me the replay. If the winner can not show me a replay then 2nd will win but again they will need to send me a replay.
    SO EVERYONE SAVE YOUR BEST TIME REPLAYS.
    Please send me the replay before the rounds end so I can keep things moving.
    For the people who can't do replays you have 2 choices
    1 - learn how to do a replay.
    2 - don't win.

    Race 3, it's up to you if you want to cut the last corner in question, you do not have to send in a replay for this round, for those of you that still don't cut the corner I applaud you. The reason why you don't have to send a replay is this:
    *If everyone does it then it's not a shortcut.
    *it doesn't seem to be that big of a shortcut.
    *Not everyone can do a replay, I don't want to limit the amount of events that those guys can enter, and yes it is simple but I myself don't have a PC so I do use my phone but it's very hard to film it for 5-7 minutes that's why I normally only film 1 lap and it takes me about an hour to upload 1 lap to youtube.
    * I don't want to turn the CHALLENGE HUB into something that needs going over with a fine tooth comb.
    * if we have to record everything it sucks all the fun at of it. (Remember it's only a game, a very good game)

    BATTLE IT OUT FOR THE PHOTON AWARD

    Every week 2 players will nominate a car for the BATTLE, everyone else will race both cars around a race chosen by bjl23.
    (the 2 players that are doing battle can race the cars but there times will not count)

    When a player races both cars the fastest car will get a point,
    the car with the most points wins,
    In an event of a tie the car with the fastest time will win.
    The player that nominated the winning car wins the PHOTON AWARD on the winners list.
    (named after the great man @photonrider)

    The person who gets the fastest time will get a special mention at the end of the round.

    All cars can be tuned/upgraded to the specs of the chosen race.

    The 2 players that select the cars will be in alphabetical order.

    The rules to picking the cars are as follows:
    You can't pick a car that has already been used in a BATTLE.
    You can't pick cars of the same name. (example - SKYLINE vs SKYLINE)
    first in best dressed.
    If the AI uses street cars then you must pick a street car, if the AI uses race cars then you must pick a race car.
    Max price of 500,000cr
    Suzuki GSX-R/4 '01 IS OFF LIMITS

    This challenge is not about who is the fastest but about what nominated car is the fastest. It is a good way just to jump in a car and just race against yourself, while earning points for your fellow players

    Quick question, BB adjustments allowed? Bit hard using BB of 5 and 5 with ABS off and using the [] button.

    You can adjust what ever the game allows.

    Edit: @RMan72 I use [] to, what do you find that is wrong if BB is on 5 and 5.

    With ABS off the brakes lock easily I dropped the setting to 2 and 3 but found it still locked at the end of braking in the rear so flipped it and lowered to 2 and 1.

    Good to know, I always have my ABS on 1, do you find 0 better and what is better.

    For me having ABS off changes the handling of the car makes it more 'alive' on corner entry.
    Which is better depends on what you want. Quick times from the off, using racing brakes or using most set ups on GTPlanet then ABS on 1 is the way to go.
    If you want a slightly different handling car and want to be a little more involved in the braking process then ABS off.
    Give the C1 and 300SL tune from Elegance Automotive Guild a go. Driving them was my first experience using ABS off.

    No-tune update

    @RMan72 I tried ABS 0, my first lap i was like :scared:. Played with the BB, 1/2 was best for me. I did a better time with it.:tup: I think this is the best I can do.
    IMAG0321.jpg
    What's your thoughts on this car?
    I found it a lot better than I expected, being a TVR I thought it was going to all over the place.

    I found it quite tame for a TVR, running stock cars is always fun.

    You like running with ABS 0? You see any difference in handling?

    I like driving stock cars to.

    I didn't mind no ABS, still need more practice I think. I found out very quickly that it locks up if you spend to long on the brakes, i needed to brake a bit sooner than normal, also I found that if you get it right I slides nicely into the corner and you don't lose any momentum. It was a lot easier then I thought it was going to be, once I got the setting right. I think I would struggle on the higher powered cars?

    ABS off makes the car really come alive - though I have to add that running ABS off on cars that technically are produced with ABS is kind of modifying the car.
    How I handle ABS off is to 'pump' the brake pedal. You can't 'stand on the brakes' like one can do with full ABS functioning - a real car 'judders' when you stomp on ABS brakes.
    So what I do, when I have ABS off (usually I'm running at TCS1/ABS 1) is to pump the brakes in a way imitating the ABS - manually.
    ABS off does make the car a whole different animal - quite a thrill to drive - and unless one is really trying to clip milliseconds of a TT ABS off does make a race very exciting.

    On occasion, though, one may have to change their pants after an ABS off race - if you're driving the Cizeta for instance. :D

    Everything seems good but not enought as gladiator prove ......
    My best time was 0.4 lower than yours ,usualy am in 1.2 low and hights , the last corner is the key here, how not loose speed and hit the gas without sliding.
    From what i see you can have more top speed in finish line .
    Usualy am fast when i have to use the kerb at the left ,

    About my record I don't have replay.

    I lapped mid 1:00.xxx and a good first lap is mandatory, something around 1:01.5xx.
    Tsukuba is a very technical circuit for which pad and wheel driving are completely different.
    I performed several TTs on this circuit and a good experience is fundamental to drive fast harpins and large turns as the final one.
    Driving by pad a mid-powered FR car as TVR I would recommend as follows:
    - hairpins: min distance trackline with "cusp" shaping
    - first turn: not to close trackline trying to accelerate as soon as possible.
    - last turn: there are several way to be fast but with pad i prefer to brake quite late, partitioning until the middle then go go go crossing the fingers
    - right turn before Dunlop bridge: key turn in which brake early is the better approach.

    More in general an unbalanced brake setting (e.g. 7/4) for FR car would help a lot but is out of this challenge requirement.

    Hope this helps in someway.

    Ciao

    PS: for racetime under 5min should be necessary to lap under 1min...

    Thanks for the tips mate.
    It's such a honor racing with you and the AI HUB gang. @ERAZER helped me a lot with tuning and @Vic Reign93 helped me a lot with driving tips to, when we raced online together out the "car of the week" thread. He was the master of these style events. :cheers:

    The only car give me hard time was the 440 cuda i think ,
    Was all tune around 540pp plus ,no nitro , no suspencion tune ( i haven't the time for this) only the gear box lower to some of them.
    And to be honest it wasn' t like wash machine races , some of them need at least paint job after this :lol:
