    Just to rub salt into your wounds, my no-tune time was my 4th race and I got my 1:30 in the invitational in about half an hour.

    Wow Bryce, I love that Elan project :tup:

    I kind of thought my last no tune will be my last entry for no tune but I changed my mind, might be back soon(when I saw your times 1.29. was first thing in my head :p) . I'm playing GT5 on a pad, mostly BSpec because of some minor injuries but I might be back maybe already this round.

    btw I took small video from my endurance today. I don't get how is GT6 actually worse regarding car damage visually (let alone mechanical).

    No it's that hard or scary as older lessons that we race at the past.
    Although you can't say its easy one.
    Personally i didn't fire up my ps3 from Monday , much work and dentist appointments ,leave no room for playing but hopefully ill have it till Sunday morning .

    :cheers:

    You guys are doing something I'm not on the no tune.

    5:11 is my best so far

    Just to confirm, Dallas an I are running Sports Hard round Silverstone. We are not taking any shortcuts.

    Im currently on 1 tcs and 1 abs only, but I cant imagine any other assists taking me below 5 mins.

    So what am I missing? Handbrake used? Some assist that enables some technique I don't know about? Left foot braking?

    Well SRF=ON and Active Steering=Mild and ABS=1.. I did 2 2.29 laps and I don't think they were even particularly great laps. For example last round no tune lap was really really fast as opposed to this run so I don't know, I can make you a vid if I saved a replay, I can't remember. As for handbrake, I don't think I've ever used handbrake in Gran Turismo to go faster. On Silverstone I think is important to steer in the corners earlier than you think you should, at least for me.

    Oooh, active steering=mild that could be it!! I have only ever tried it on "off" or "strong". I have always found it too strong so I dont know why I never thought to try mild!!!!
    Pint of Mild please barman!!!!

    Hello Everyone, thanks for welcoming me to the club.

    This is my attempt at the No Tune race. Not sure it's going to challenge anyone, but I'll definitely be having another crack at it.

    I use TC 0, ABS 1, ACTIVE STEERING off, ASM off and SRF on.
    No cutting, try TC off as it slows you down on the exit of corners. (let the tyre smoke)

    Welcome to the HUB and GT PLANET. If you have any questions please don't hesitate to ask.

    Ok, the seat has been raised 3 inches and brought forward 6 inches (Dallas is a big fella). The steering wheel has been lowered. The "special shoes" (Dallas knows about these (though they wouldn't fit him)) are on, and Rammstein is on the ICE system. Dallas's supremacy in this house is about to be challenged.

    Joking aside this is a proud moment, when I met Corbin, he was pretty much bottom of my leaderboard. Now I am in the raceroom at gone midnight trying to beat him.

    Honour restored!

    The assists (as recc'd by you guys - thanks) shaved 5+ seconds off my time. I would be trying all night to bust 5 mins and prob wouldn't happen, so Im happy with this.

    (Unless Dallas beats it)...

    This Dallas/Toyota/Laguna business is proving a bit more challenging though......
