    Oh thank goodness tuning is allowed on the Nissan...the stock settings would drive me insane, it's borderline undrivable.

    I tried to see how it compared to the fastest times in the Gr.1 race at Autopolis this week just for the lols, and it was 8 seconds a lap slower.

    Really a fantastic drive of you. For me this will be hard to beat. :cheers:

    Had a quick go with both. Quite a handful. But it will be fun, I think. :)

    Good to know, mate. :cheers:
    Usually you're faster than me, but I'm on your tail. What do you think of the the new combos?

    I am going to stay on the R8 Gordini '66 TT, and I think this one will be fun because it is nice & slow for me :). I just started it just now and I am way behind @Stewyripper and I want to know what medication he is taking :lol:, and I am just in front of you my friend.

    Few tips for gordini.
    Try to keep the streering as straight as possible. There is quite strong affect on acceleration versus steering angle.
    Try to pulse the steering and let the car slide alittle. Most important, try to keep momentum.

    Use leaders ghost. Set the ghost start about .5 - 1 sec in front of you. You can see the lines etc better.

    If you use auto gears, you will be losing alot of time. So good time to learn manual. Only 2 gears needed :cheers:

    Interesting to have the Gordini dirt trial and the GR Yaris will be having a dirt trial as well. I think we'll see a small spike with an interest in rallying, due to the Toyota. Might have to buy one of those Dirt games. ;)

    Pushed back up to 6th in the Gordini.. lots of fast guys there :tup: Really hard to find those last few tenths now :scared: here's my best lap so far for perusal..



    I reckon another .2 in the books for me at the most and then I will probably tap out :crazy::tup: Well Done to the top 5 guys :cheers:

    Very interesting combos this week. The Gordini is all about conservation of momentum, and the Nismo is all about controlling that front wheelspin :lol: I'm getting PTSD flashbacks from the 2015 GT Academy. Thankfully tuning is allowed but even that doesn't make this brick a lot better.

    Congrats :cheers: How much time do you think ASM is worth? I tried it on and the car just handles so weird, I'm actually faster without it :lol:

    I wonder if ASM is also beneficial for the Nismo LM?

    Thank you :cheers:

    Really I don't how How much time ASM worths on this TT ?

    I start the TT without ASM as usual and I managed 38.23X

    I saw comments from @sdi_03 and @numbnuts70 regarding ASM used by top drivers. thanks guys :tup:

    And indeed after a check of top drivers replays, all were using ASM.

    So i enable it and immediately i improve my time for at least one thenth around 38.1XX. So i will say more or less one thenth perhaps 2 thenth

    Don't really know , as I continue the TT with this configuration and never test it again without ASM.

    R8 Gordini TT is fun :tup:

    i managed 1:36:834 P10 :gtpflag:

    still possible gain 2 or 3 thenth , I 'm able to be faster than P1 on T1 but i still have to improve on the rest of the track.

    i'm chasing @sdi_03 and @Mr_P, well done guys super time :cheers:


    Thanks for driving TIPS and ghost tips:tup:

    Currently 1.38.230 in the Gordini, fun little race.

    Wasn't so much fun when I did my first few laps the other day though. Couldn't get understand why my races all ended up with red times and all high 1.40's.

    Yep, this idiot took the right hand track at the start of the race and went through the pits each lap. Was going to ask here how everyone else was actually putting down times. Ha ha ha.

    Good time mate :cheers:. I wish I could drive using Manual my friend, the fast guy's are using only 3rd & 4th gear I think Dalone.

    Hi guys, had a vacation day off. All on my friends-list did a great job in the Gordini. I still try to catch up. It's a fun combo.

    @Stewyripper: Well done, great time! :cheers::tup::tup:

    @fordlaser: Fantastic lap with auto-gears, mate. I'm 3tenth behind you, although I switched for this TT to manual. :cheers::tup::tup:

    Hey @v8_pursuit I have skip away and I am now 1:39.074 and if you are going to use manual, you should beat my time because you only have to use two gears in this TT.

    OMG, in the bottom half for the rally (not really a surprise) but what is a shock is I'm almost 12 seconds off the top time!
    That is massive for such a short track on a car you can't tune.
    I know rally driving isn't my strong point in this game but........ blimey, didn't realise I was that bad! :lol:
