    Didn't fire up the ps3 from Tuesday so its impossible to know how the AI " react " over the small " bomb " ,but reading your comments seems we are in big trouble .
    The Minolta was " Doom" and at Laguna as i remember one time i race with her.
    Just to be fair among the others , What's the configuration you're talking about ( except the tyres which is RH as i can see at your vid ) that makes the task so difficult ?
    To run the Tomy at 620 pp ?
    Or we can add the options of turbo which make it about 650 plus ( i think ) ?
    In a few words : what it takes to start training at hero's mod ?

    PS
    You already made me stressful enough for this lesson :scared: but am not giving up .

    Make sure you run with the lineup that has the Minolta in it!

    Thanks Master .
    Since i already know who's on top spot ( Hugh :bowdown: ) ill try to take the second place which is like win for me and for for everyone that knows what @RMan72 mean :D

    Don't know if i use RH ,just did some free run laps ( about 25) today following Hugh " path" except driving aids but when i try the race I'll know where am standing against the competition from the AI.

    How do you know what @RMan72 did at the school I don't even know?? Any way you can go to PP654 with Engine Tuning Stage 3. I do not care if you do!

    As I recall I used a 35:65 split on the TK and full downforce at the front with slightly larger figure (over 200 though) rear. Transmission was "solo", if I got a good draft on the final straight it's limited.

    Mate @smoothbore12 you're making me mad :p
    You never know when Tinkerbell can suprise Boogieman :lol: (well not often) But not even a comment on last No Tune entry.. Just depressing :p :p

    Anyways I'm currently playing GT5 BSpec career little bit because I have minor back and wrist injuries and driving on a wheel and specially trying to beat Hugh is not helping that to heal.

    Little offtopic but I think you guys are going to like it. Found this video and reminded me a lot of Gran Turismo just better cause it's real life :p



    It was great little race on Tsukuba.
    btw @skeagracing if you're going to watch it, do you think I'm crazy or the driver of 2nd Ferrari (Testarossa) was just really bad here? I honestly think I'd do better job with 512TR.

    Also since my whole post is off but you guys know I can't spend much time without this place I need to say I'm proud of my BSpec team in GT5 for smashing both monster cars of 4 hrs Nurburgring with a McLaren F1 '94. I wanted to do a race report on this one and I forgot to save a replay :nervous: :banghead:

    My humble suggestion is to leave it at PP620 and 731HP if you want to beat this race. But again do what you want.

    I'll follow your advice .

    @nostradavor2 if you race school, I'll be fine and at third place :p
    Since am working from 7-6 at noon all week I'll try the other events first and leave school for next week.

    @bjl23 , is it true that your face has a touch of blue colour on the left side ?

    Have a good day guys ,mine will find me again , sanding windows all day long :banghead: for fourth consecutive day

    Haha, I was thinking about that yesterday (Best Motoring...). Like, maybe a Hub event where you have to match the 63 something lap. I posted a setup on GTP that fits, or will somebody try and tell me that's the heavy long winded US Ferrari?

    Edit: Well, it certainly had the long gearbox, because, remembering 1st is the lower left, second to third on video occurs somewhere beyond 120 km/h, and in GT6 with the short gearing, you can get to about 90 km/h.

    Lap time 1:03.73 was done by Keiichi Tsuchiya but without delving into all the videos I'm not sure if it was from the race or another time (or even car).

    I might race school and I dont mind finishing outside P3 but I was referring to how no bravo no gif or gifa no nothing after my last No Tune win.. made me sad bro :guilty:

    btw my team is just racing Nurburgring again with a McLaren but without me giving them instructions.. GT5 is really for nutjobs like me only bit I'll get that 100% :banghead:

    edit @Thematic can you give me your Tsukuba time with the F40.. I might give it a go.. stock car/tires?

    I wouldn't over tune the ZZ-II as too much power will affect the handling.

    I just ran the ZZ11 with total power and it did affect the handling.

    Sure. I have lost older GT replay comments, but they still have dates and they are later than the date on this posted setup. So that is what I used. In 2017 I did a 1:04.235 which I felt I should have improved on, but after many tries could not.

    Since the race had a Ruf, I'll put this as bonus:
    Ruf BTR "from dealership", comfort medium. 1:06.58.

    I went toyotaing yesterday, but in 50 min. couldn't get anywhere close the dented spectre. Even that time when starting velocity was 180 km/h. All the braking in the first zone was a strain as well.

    Hey guys, haven't participated since I've been swamped with school work :yuck::yuck::yuck::yuck::yuck::yuck::yuck:
    Hopefully I'll be back soon, but 9 hour hw sessions on the weekend say otherwise:grumpy:

    Early in the morning again , drinking my coffee but this time am going to my bed again :lol: and not for work.
    Yesterday a give an hour at no tune and after the first couple of races i was trying to get my way up ,among smoke and screaming tyres .
    IMG_20210123_205513.jpg

    Having as reference @Thematic time ( ok am sure he didn't try it enough ) at 5.14 i start like this
    IMG_20210123_203518.jpg

    Several races after and with BB at 5-7 the smoke was increased and end up like this.
    IMG_20210123_210741.jpg

    Not much left for me out there since i had only one time better first lap from 2.34 mid-low at 2.33 high .
    Its a like a 2 laps TT since the AI didn't affect at all your race and i was surprised from the long Jag how well can handle creating a " smokey territory " at Stone.

    Happy to see you again and occupied Barnavas .

    Noel i might have the school today but is no a promise ,since i never did the race to see what is like ,only free run laps to get the feeling of the far and where i can go .
    @bjl23 ask @Failmaster21 to design a round to keep him busy :D

    Once I do some chores around the house, I may actually do this round's challenges :eek::eek::scared::scared:
    I may also test out the changed settings for the whole GP Legends series I wanted to do

    That first corner is very tricky to get right especially with no ABS. I played with my brake balance a fair bit, I think I ended up on 3-5 and I used the soft suspension.

    Its a " spot" that you can gain or lose time at that turn but i never found the way to get it right .
    I might lower my time a bit but what history tells is that @bjl23 is damn good on that track right from the beginning .
    I spend an hour to go from 33s to 31 high but only one time i was faster than my ghost on that turn and lose it couple of turns later .
    While at no tune " boss" and I we are so close on 5 minute run ,here - again - happens to be way faster from the beginning .
    Lets see and the one who design the event .

    I run 3 races for school yesterday noon but that Minolta breathing on my neck and force me to errors
    So i have to deal with it that week .

    Have a good week guys.
