    Seems a bit odd to use the Indy circuit for Gr.2 cars. The full Brands Hatch layout would have been fun with Gr.2 but the Indy circuit feels very short.

    With the DS4 I could not either as my controller input was too "sudden" which was a no go in this car. With the wheel it was easy though as it allows for progressive smooth inputs.

    Early, but smooth turn in and staying close to the curb would have done it for you.

    I have no trouble in Gr.1 cars (er, except for the Dodge) and take it flat out fine..... but that Zonda just would not behave! If it ever comes back I will take your advice, thanks!

    Weird combo, you would think that it would be the gto around brands indy and vice versa.

    Enjoying the tuning though. I pretty much have that “floaty” feel dialed out, I just need to practice.

    What other sorts of neat combinations do you think could be fun for time trials? I also wonder if we could see provided cars be factored in, where you could have a specific selection with a class, but still be able to tune them. Anyway, here were some brief ideas I had:

    -"Gentleman's Agreement" JDM cars @ Tokyo Expressway South Inner Loop, tuning permitted

    -Jaguar XJ13 @ Goodwood Circuit

    -Gr.1 @ Circuit de la Sarthe, tuning permitted

    -Gr.2 @ Fuji Speedway, tuning permitted

    -Mercedes-AMG W08 @ Catalunya

    -Subaru WRX STI Isle of Man TT @ Tsukuba (since it's a time attack car, and Tsukuba is said to be most popular for time attack, as well as for motorcycle races)

    -Renault R8 Gordini @ Fisherman's Ranch

    It would be pretty awesome to do one of the unicorn cars around Goodwood. As you say though, they'd really have to provide the car to keep the participation numbers up.

    Alternatively, it could be an affordable historic model, like the Renault R8 Gordini, or one of the older N-class cars. Something like the Toyota Sports 800, or the Corvette C2.

    Brands is sooo slippery, but oddly fun. When the flow is good, the times are quite constant. T1 is the hardest for me...
    Did about 50 laps with gtr. It was easyer to get the power down with it.

    0:40.875 BB 3



    Sooo annoying, but odly satisfactory :lol:

    Last night I had set my personal best for the Pagani Zonda R Super Lap and it took place in its final hour.

    Here is a first quick tune for the Yamagiwa TT , i have a 1: 54.296 and a 6th position with it for the moment but a lot of room if nailing the 2 chicanes and fast left right left of the circuit.Low 53 reachable i think.
    Perhaps others evolutions of the tune during TT duration.

    For the gearbox : IMPORTANT , SHIFT AT 6000 RPM
    Set final gear at 3,200
    Then top speed minimum at 200 kmh / 124 mph
    Then set each gear ratio
    Then set final gear again to 2.500
    Done. Good luck , have a good fun and a good drive.

    DTM used to race on the Indy Circuit IRL although they have since moved to the full GP circuit. So running Super GT on the Indy track isn’t so far from reality ;)

    I had a bit of crack at the Brands Hatch one last night, maybe 20 laps. Think I got a 41.0 .... But my optimal time was like 40.2 so might have to have another run over the weekend.
    I am a bit of a sucker for Brands, love the short and full versions.
    Dont play much GT anymore so it turns out I only had the GTR to use, and no money to buy anything else.

    Was running no traction control, what seems to be the normal ?

    Had a run at the last one in the rain at RBR, last I saw I was sitting like 290th or something (with no traction control), can you check the final results somewhere ?

    I found it pretty easy using Praiano's tune, nothing else worked for me.
