    Can the Ferrari only be purchased with Game Credits not on the Playstation Store? The Ford is. How can I buy the Ferrari?

    The Ferrari is too expensive - cars over 5m are not available in PS Store.

    The last TT at Bathurst had almost 50’000 participants, be intriguing to see how many try the Ferrari challenge, would have loved to try it but I ain’t grinding for a 20 million car

    Still.....330 P4 is 20 million.

    The worst thing is the fact that this is terrible combination for a special occasion (which is high number of players cause lockdown).

    High roller time trial works well if the player count isn't particularly special, so not today. Imagine many people wanted to play only to find themselves locked by credits. Like I know it's pre planned but still wtf they thinking.

    At least the ferrari is stock power and weight. This configuration turn the car very pleasant to to drive and for the first time , tuning will not be used to tame an undrivable beast.
    I already have something talking about settings and also a 1st place for the moment.
    I have to explore some others settings options , then i'll publish something.

    Looking forward to it! 320 kmh a bit slow on that long straight with no chicanes!!
    I tried fiddling with final gear and top speed and it didn't seem to make any difference - it needs horsepower :)

    The GT40 is really ruined by the understeer physics. I remember driving this car in a N300 FIA event at Willow last year and it handles those long corners beautifully. Now the front end just gets so light you have to back off the throttle a lot more, especially in the last looooong corner. Shame because with some tuning it can be made to handle like a dream, but PD's default settings are a dud.

    As for the 330 P4, I have put over 4000 kms on this car thanks to grinding the Nostalgic 1979 race :lol: I can drive this combo in my dream and my car is already perfectly tuned to suit my driving style :D I'll give prairano's tune a try to see if I can find some more tenths in the Porsche Curves, but all our values are pretty similar except for LSD so we'll see...

    Buy the Lewis Hamilton DLC. With your skills all gold (or even diamond) should be easy to do in 1-2 hours. More than enough credits to buy anything you want.

    Thanks for this but I can't get my gears to look anything like yours! First one for example you drop to 1.xx I don't have the option to go less than 3.xx??? I'm missing something!

    Set your final gear to 5.500 first, then max speed to 200Kmh, and then you can adjust the gear ratios as per Praiano's setup, after you set the gear ratios, lower the final gear to 2.770

    Thanks to the 1979 Nostalgia event, anyone with a 330 P4 is no doubt sick of Le Sarthe, but at least we've had plenty of practice :lol:

    I'm in precisely the same boat as you were...

    I got 300th place on my first run :)... only to find that there is only 700 entrants... :(

    Some seriously impressive times from @praiano63 and @LeGeNd-1 - I think I need to get tuning :lol:

    edit: 130th now thanks to @praiano63's tune... :tup:

    I don't get it, many times I have won enough to get me over the $20 million mark but it only lets me have $19,999,999.

    How do people get to accumulate more than $20 mil?

    Anyway I had the Ford and am currently 1:22.832 for #58 at Willow.

    Incidentally and by coincidence, my sons and I watched the Ford vs Ferrari (DVD) again last night, never knowing I'd be saddling up in the GT40 today..
    ~~~
    Ok, wanted to see how easy/hard it was to build up ala Louis Hamilton so did a few races and won a couple of million to get me to close to 20mil, around 19.8 or whatever.
    However my last win was $260,000 or so rather than the stated $500,000 which would have put me over the $20mil mark.
    It did allow me to have $20mil though, for the first time.
    Not sure I want to blow it all on one car though, especially as you can only win the L Hamilton races once.

    The Lewis Hamilton DLC unlocks the 20m limit to 100m if you get all golds, and it will give you 100m Cr. to fill up that limit if you get all diamonds. :tup:

    After many laps and many trips to the seaside on the outside of the final turn, one of them finally stuck;

    Yes, for some reason you have to downgrade power and add weight before you go into the TT..... I thought normally it would let you choose the car in the race, then downgrade before carrying on.
    So what you have to do is set power and weight to 100 on the sliders, before you choose the race, then it will show up.
