    I remember doing this type of thing with a Zonda and Esprit 350, but in a draft with the AI cars in practice mode. Both of them only barely touched 300 so I don't think they'd count.

    No I'm afraid not; drafting doesn't count.

    @Areno:
    You failed! 300mph is 482.8 km/h. :lol:

    @BobK:
    Who cares, last time OP logged in was 2011. The leaderboard page isn't even online anymore. And what's the issue with converting km/h?

    I think we could make a new leaderboard with google forms maybe, It'd be cool to bring a bit of GT4 back.

    It was never completely determined what the conversion rate PD used for doing so was. Some testing back when the wall was still updated seemed to suggest that whatever rate they used was not constant, as different people were getting different results. Not helped by how there was a bug between how far your car traveled and how far the odometer on the HUD registered that made chasing it down even harder.

    So you can provide us with the conversion factor that PD uses?

    Not the one the rest of the world uses -- the one that PD uses.

    Is it not possible to check your top speed leaderboard in the other unit after switching settings? I can see that it might be unfair, but isn't it the wrong approach to force everyone to use the inconsistently, incorrectly converted unit to reach 300mph (which isn't actual 300 then) instead of the game's native km/h?

    After all it's still redundant because the leaderboard is gone, all that counts is his updated result which is quite clearly over 300.

    That perhaps would have been a better argument to make a couple weeks after the thread was started instead of a couple weeks and ten years after the thread was started.

    It's quite clearly over 300, but how much it actually is is suspect. The leaderboard was linked above, and all the posts in this thread remain, and the entire point of this thread was about comparing results made from tuning under specific circumstances (and, occasionally, tunes themselves). Changing one of the baselines of the comparison 7700 posts in makes every result from this point on have significantly less meaning.


    Put another way, if the rules in the OP are redundant simply because the OP is gone from updating the results anymore, I'll go boot up GT4 and slam a TS020 to 400 wheelie-ing and post that; because who cares?

    Might be a good time to mention this thread, then.

    I want to try this again. Anyone have any suggestions for car choice?

    I've gotten the Viper SRT-10 close (around 298) so you could try that. The Cadillac Cien also has potential.

    Welcome to the club! :tup:

    The easiest car to do this with is the Toyota GT-ONE. A couple suspension and tranny tweaks and you're good to go. Nitrous not needed.

    In GT6, it hits 292 MPH on a Stage 3 turbo. If GT4 carries the turbos, I'm sure I can get it to 300.

    Aerodynamic drag is way way way higher than it was in GT6.

    Thought I'd make a final post here detailing my 300mph adventures, for anyone who's looking. Recently I found an old hard drive with some speeds and setups, so the past few weeks I've been putting everything together and going for a few new records, for old time's sake :tup:

    Firstly, the new cars to top 300:

    Mitsubishi 3000GT MR '98: 317.49mph - this was the only 3000GT missing, and coincidentally, the slowest one
    NISMO 400R: 301.69mph - horrible powerband made this tricky, until I realised I'd forgotten to add the racing chip!
    NISMO GT-R R-tune: 307.17mph (pic) - used the same(ish) setup on the Pace Cars with surprising results
    Nissan GRAN TURISMO GT-R '01 (Pace Car, no lights): 316.14mph(!!) - tried this on NTSC to record it and went much, much faster than I'd ran on PAL :scared: same story with the Escudo, incidentally.
    Subaru Impreza WRX '94: 303.88mph(!!) - at 520bhp this is the lowest powered car to make it, at least in my hands.
    Subaru Impreza Sport Wagon '00: 301.18mph - fortunate for the 6.2mile version, otherwise this wouldn't make it
    Subaru Impreza WRX STi '02: 301.49mph - already known to be capable but hadn't been posted. I'd also tried the Spec C again, hitting 307.53mph.
    Subaru Legacy B4 2.0GT '03: 300.03mph (pic)- Took a weird setup and 500 miles to get there, I don't think any other Legacy will make it.
    Toyota Celica GT-FOUR '98: 302.39mph - I'd seen this car go quickly on the 1/4 mile so tried its max...!!
    Nissan 300ZX '89: 301.60mph - Japanese version has a 6.2miler of this. High mileage I was stuck at 297ish.

    Next, the records of which I've broken (aside from my own ones):
    BMW V12 LMR: 342.06mph
    Dodge Viper GTS-R Oreca: 303.10mph
    Dodge Viper SRT10 '03: 301.04mph
    - this was a tricky one. After seeing 300.9x many times I was relieved to hit 301!
    Gillet Vertigo Race Car: 308.00mph
    Honda NSX-R LM Road Car: 302.09mph
    - not too difficult, but I'd never tried it so wanted to see what I could do with it
    Jaguar XJ220 LM: 301.11mph
    Lotus Esprit V8 GT: 311.13mph
    - Japanese version has a 6.2 miler. With the high mileage I did 305.84mph
    Lotus Esprit V8 SE: 305.34mph
    Lotus Esprit V8 '02:
    312.05mph
    Lotus Esprit Sport 350:
    317.01mph - another tricky one. I suspect I'd need an unconventional setup to improve on this.
    Mercedes SL65 AMG: 301.10mph
    Mitsubishi 3000GT '98:
    327.00mph - more in it but it seemed a nice number to stop at.
    Mitsubishi 3000GT '96: 320.48mph - finishing off the 3000GT's.
    Mitsubishi 3000GT '95: 330.xxmph - lost forever. I already had the fastest Mitsubishi, the HSR-II, at least!
    Mitsubishi 3000GT MR '95: 320.37mph
    Nissan 350Z Concept LM:
    300.67mph - this one also took a while. The PAL car can't do 300 despite an extra 120bhp.
    Nismo GT-R S-tune: 310.29mph (pic) - I'd hit 309 back in 2010 and lost the setup. Luckily I remembered one detail that got me there again eventually!
    Nissan GT-R PaceCar: 303.22mph - this one had a tiny improvement in NTSC compared to PAL, around 1mph.
    Nissan R390 GT1 Race Car: 341.04mph - race cars are usually trickier records for me due to wheelies. This one wasn't.
    Pagani Zonda C12S 7.3: 306.38mph
    Pescarolo '04:
    346.57mph
    Suzuki Escudo: 324.59mph
    - carried over my PAL setup (which did 300-301) and was rather surprised. Did this in 2012.
    Toyota GT-One: 372.26mph - of course I had to give this a try on NTSC. Took a while to get there with an 'almost wheelie' setup.

    One record I didn't beat, but still wanted to post:

    Tommy Kaira ZZ-II: 362.64mph / 313.23mph Non-Nitrous - I was surprised I managed this high, but it's at the limit of the current setup. Would need to learn some new tricks to go faster, evidenced by the record of 382!!

    A few cars that almost made it (and probably would, if I was an expert on AWD tuning):
    Audi S4 '98: 296.51mph
    Subaru Prodrive '01: 296.42mph
    Subaru Sedan GD '00: 296.76mph
    Subaru Sedan VI '99: 297.68mph - more at the limit than the other two
    Mitsubishi Lancer Evo IV GSR: 295.45mph
    Toyota Esso Ultraflo Supra: 299.19mph (this is close to a wheelie as it is. Any improvements I had were on 2 wheels, sadly)

    It's been fun playing GT4 again :)

    Hi! I'm so happy! I just created an account to post this!!! I am someone who spent part of the childhood trying to get over 600 Km/h with the Tommy Kaira ZZII and now not only I could manage to go over 600 but I've also just beaten the official record by MasterStorm!! I am happy, and I guess it is a world record for the PAL version of the game!


    Here is the video!
