    Hey all,

    I think it deserves it own thread imho, but the almighty and as most say Impossible task of achieving gold on all 3 X2010 laps on a pad has now been done!! I achieved it today by getting a 2:09.915 on a pad on Suzuka. I will also be making tutorials on how to and also just making a video for youtube

    Feel free to check out the replay

    And no more bashing saying its impossible :D! As it's been proven now! :D

    This does indeed deserve its own thread.

    I have been following your progress in the other thread; a lack of time, talent, old age and a recent thumb injury each and all make this beyond myself.

    Well done Sir ! :tup::bowdown::cheers:

    Yup major congrats on this one. If you hadn't come in my thread and posted how you had gotten gold on GP/F and were getting close to Suzuka gold I probably wouldn't have been motivated to work on it myself. So much thanks for that. :) Hopefully I can get this suzuka gold and then I'll be done for good with this god forsaken challenge :lol:

    Im hope you get it aswell instrumental as its such a feeling when you've done it!!! :D. I will be bringing out tutorials soon of it so if you do get stuck might be of help to you, or to anyone trying to do this! :D! One thing i would recommend is gioteck triggers, my fingers were getting constant cramp in them without them so i bought them (Their only £1/2) and well worth the cramp reduction, (Although be warned both of mine have cracked from the amount of work they have gone through lol)

    Anyone successfully performing a feat this difficult deserves to get an automatic platinum in GT5.

    Hey Tidgney, congratulations :) :tup: !

    Could you please tell me which settings you used ? I'm not a bad driver but until now it's absolutely impossible for me to even bronze the challenge with DS3 (I ordered a DFGT which I haven't received yet) :( !

    Pad was set to brake and accelerate on L2/R2

    And on the car;

    Driving line/Skid Recovery Force: On
    ABS: 1
    Everything else: off.

    Once again thanks everyone :))

    Did you need to rehabilitate your fingers afterwards?

    That's an excellent acheivement by the way:tup: I wish I could be faster with the controller.

    That's exactly what I'm using too but I'm not even able to bronze Monza :( ! Guess I'm not a good driver after all :lol: !

    Hm, I guess I already have to accelerate when I'm steering in a corner or accelerate and brake at the same or something like this :).

    Any general driving tips ?

    I salute you. One day I will achieve the same feat, but as you're the first to do so, you receive infinite kudos. Kaz should give you some sort of prize..

    Dont try and drive fast to achieve bronze. Unlike any other car you drive this differently, so i would recommend rather than the old "Dont accelerate till you know you don't have to take off" you can let go and put back on and the car should drive more into the corner.

    You'll notice on suzuka degner 2 or w/e its called i either have to use the dirt OR (If you've watched me previously) do a Scandinavian flick which the car can do and it will slide round a bit more.

    Monza the best tips are to cut the chicanes. (I was using default setup for monza and manual :S with no SRF or ABS, so haven't tried with my suzuka setup) and you will loose alot of time at the top of the course with the left long right left, try and maintain 180mph through their and you should get your bronze :D!.

    I will be bringing out tutorials for each track so will get on that asap so people can help. Will be video with stop start and talking through the important parts of the laps!!! (Monza and nurb need a memory jog but should still be np).

    Is there any way to do this with the analog stick instead of L2 and R2?

    I don't like L2 and R2.

    I dont believe so as you do need to be able to brake and accelerate instantaneously. E.g. would be Degner 2 and the hairpin. Nurburg and Monza are possible though with the sticks though!

    Ok, but I also experience some lag when trying to steer quickly from left to right. Is this normal with a pad?

    It's really annoying because it's forcing me to go slow on Suzuka!!!

    Yes it is you'll see that on some of my attempts if you watch some of the sessions. Especially through esses, because it doesnt turn quickly enough with a pad (Also why people claimed for it to be impossible). So you have to judge the lag in with the lap, so an example would be i put the analog stick straight before the corner finishes before the last S bend before the long left. This way I could turn a bit quicker in.

    I see, I shall try that and turn earlier on the S bends.

    People said it was impossible on a pad, which is also where I read a few GT is biased to wheels threads, as it is much easier on a wheel :).


    Friends 21st Birthday this saturday and mine next week so alot of drink will be going down now!!! :D. And my house mates are rather thankful because i can socialize again ;) and as their girls they really hated the gaming full stop lol! (And no im not gay just lucky :p)
