    This is GT4. There were no X series cars in GT4.

    Oh yes.
    More downforce=more drag=slower top speed.
    The hard part is getting the car to do more than 340mph without the wheelie trick, you have to have the car just at the brink of the wheelie trick, and so there is almost no load on the front tires. A lot of testing is needed for that kind of speed.

    GT4 is iffy about that. If you have your suspension set up properly, maxing it out will make you faster than minimizing it. At least for LMP/Group C cars.

    I know what you're saying, I had a Minolta where if I got the front wheels to stay on the ground, but unload like it was trying to wheelie, it would go insanely fast.
    On one of the runs it did it perfectly and I gained 20-30mph, but I couldn't replicate it again.

    Hi Dark Elite! I just broke 300mph with my Toyota GT - ONE. Here's proof:

    I know it is really slow for this car, but this is my first speed over 300mph and I don't know much about tuning. Can I join the club?

    EDIT: ΟΚ, this one has a little backstory. When I first played GT4, I watched the intro with that beautiful Ford GT. As soon as I saw it, I knew that I HAD to get it. I finally found out how. I won the GTWC with the Toyota 7. A long time later, I figured that I couldn't just let the car that got me most of my wins (the 7) collect dust in my garage, so I took it out to try and get it in the club. A week of endless attempts resulted in this.

    NOTE: I didn't take a photo of the Session Record screen because it said 305 (which was a wheelie). I then deleted the 305 speed from the rankings and took a photo of the 300.83 speed.

    EDIT2: Improved my GT - ONE speed thanks to suspension tuning.

    EDIT3: My first road car over 300mph!

    EDIT4: Data has been corrupted... There goes all my progress... and my settings :(
    P.S. I read and followed the rules. ;)

    My max. speed with the Minolta Toyota 99C is 323.40MPH. I can't see any way to go faster without more nitrous. I have the fifth gear ratio set at 0.800, sixth at 0.650 and the final ratio currently at 3.375. I can get over 260MPH in fifth around the curve (Test Track), but run out of nitrous too soon.

    Oh great, someone posted. Now I don't have to edit my last post all the time :dopey:

    On Sep 16 2012, my data got corrupted. After 362 days of GT4 collecting dust, I restarted it on Friday, Sep 13 2013. (:scared:) I quickly got myself a 3000GT '96 and got this as a result:

    [​IMG]

    Yes, that's 311.09mph. Not even close to the record, but it's over 300, and that's what matters! :cheers:

    Wheelie trick doesn't count, though.

    The 3000GT doesn't have enough rear downforce to wheelie trick.

    It almost wheelied on launch, but I kept it on the ground. The run is perfectly clean and I have video evidence too if needed. ;)

    EDIT: I'm working on the Tommy kaira ZZII. So far it's at 324. I'm hoping to get it to 350, or as far as 380 (that's almost impossible though). I'll update every time I reach a milestone speed. Proof will be posted when I realise that I really can't push the thing any further.

    EDIT2: Which appears to be now. I'll do some more runs and post a pic. Also, I got the GT-One to 303.73mph without the turbo :D Proof for both cars is being uploaded to imageshack.

    Don't worry about reposts if it was three weeks(!) since the last post; if you'd simply edited your old post then most people (myself included) likely would never have noticed it had been changed.

    That being said, I'm afraid your images are too small to be readable.

    The GT-One and 88C-V are the preferred cars for 300mph.
