    I am new to the "super lap" thingy... Are there any prices for participating? You know, like "top10% get an expensive and a cheap car, top25% get a cheap car and everyone gets some paint".

    Thanks Adam and praiano for the setups, you both are legends. Always good to see aliens who enjoy driving road cars, unfortunately most of the pros don't seen to give a damn about them, when they are, in my opinion, the essence of the series, a hallmark that differentiated it from the other racing games at the time. Keep rocking :cheers:

    A 3rd place now with a new setting , i have reduced my camber to gain braking capacity. It pay a whole second less on my lap. Also some little suspension modifications.
    For the gearbox still the same
    it's a classic trans flip
    Final gear max
    top speed mini
    Then each individual gear ratio
    Then final gear again at 3,200

    You can use the 1st gear for slow last chicane and hairpin but you need to perform the out of those corners in 2d gear.

    RIDE HEIGHT MM = FRONT 120 REAR 80

    I'd really hope that the time trials mean something at some point, like some sort of credit/exp reward. I'd also like to be able to view my ranking not only after an event ends, but also within the context of either the world, my region, nation, and so on.

    I still have a big problem in the last part of the circuit. Turn right "campus " to "Stavelot" out to "courbe Paul Frere" is a real enigma for me , i can see the number 1 ghost going away and i have no clue for this.
    SPA is still a big unknow for me. Need much more practice to learn all the tricks.

    Surprised how little interest there is in the Spa combo, I was still in double digits last night when I checked. Maybe the tuning aspect turns people off. I wonder if people will be more willing to participate if we can download tunes from the leaderboard? I mean not all of us visit gtplanet and knows about our great tuning god praiano :p

    After playing Spa a lot on ACC the track in GT feels a lot narrower for me which makes being accurate difficult, especially on the entry to Pouhon and Blanchimont. And this is despite playing ACC on a laptop and GTS on a large TV screen. I still get nightmares when hotlapping this track from all the hours I did in GT Academy 2014 :sick:

    I think it is the car, not the tuning, that turns people off of this one

    I thought there would be more love for the Red Pig, especially around the track where it had so much success IRL. Honestly we've had worst cars to drive (Civic @ Willow and GTO @ Yamagiwa were understeer country) and there were more people participating.

    I guess people are also losing interest given it's FIA off season and there are no rewards for TT. I don't know why PD can't give some credit/mileage rewards for specific % in rankings. Back in GT6 time/drift trials we at least had the gold/silver/bronze rewards to aim for.

    For example:
    Top 10 - 2 million
    Top 1% - 1 million
    Top 10% - 500,000
    Top 25% - 250,000
    Any % - 100,000

    Oh yeah I forgot about that, and the 5 day login bonus. The game is too much of a grind to earn credits to buy cars. Not much incentive imo

    Pretty sure the 'lack of interest' in Spa is the cost, $2 million for the car.

    Seems many who do not have enough credits are resisting spending more real money to buy it.

    Another thing, I note both Praiano and ADAM are using the old, 'Ride height switcheroo' whereby the front is raised high and the rear is well lowered, which was how it seemed to work in previous GT games.

    Anyway, just back from my son's Aussie Rules game (Darwin rural area) temp was 36c in the shade.
    Now to have another crack at Spa with Praiano's tune. Had a few runs before we left this morning and reduced to 2:34.8.

    Wow, those couple more runs put me in 17th position with 2.33.781 and 1st in OZ.

    Hmm good point on the credits. Though IMO 2 million isn't really that hard to get (just under 1 hour of racing Nostalgic La Sarthe if you get clean race bonus everytime). Wasn't there a FIA race early this year with the D-Type? I Imagine that was even worse in participation numbers :lol:

    I still don't know what to make of ride height in this game. In previous tuned TTs praiano said they fixed it and reverse rake doesn't work anymore, but this time (and from my own testing), reverse rake do still work to reduce understeer. Why can't PD just get something so basic right...

    Let's here what @praiano63 has to say about this ride height.

    These one make car Time Trials are starting to get boring and what we need, to have both Time Trials so we can use more than 1 car to choose in these events.

    I tried your gears "Fordy' with Praiano's set up, did half a dozen laps and managed 2:33.8, just outside my best time.

    You are right about them (gears) being quicker, at least until you reach about 250kmh in 4th and have to change to 5th, then it dies in the bum.

    Maybe Praiano can explain it? Or even improve on it so 5th keeps accelerating? I fear it can't be done though without drastically changing 1,2,3 and 4th gear.

    DS4/AT/1:34.864 for 47th

    Based on the best sector 0.5 still to be grabbed...

    @ADAM18 / @praiano63 mixed setup, thanks for sharing.
    After best lap I mounted @fordlaser gearing and it seems more effective for AT… quite tied fingers now so I will test deeply later on.

    ciao

    I use the ride height in a normal way , according to the real life physics. The main goal with this car /track , on those low tyres grip with full power & lower weight , is to calm down the rear end when changing of direction , accelerating safely and earlier out corners ....
    It is just a question of better control to contain the car. Sure top allien drivers with better skills , would raise the rear end and be faster. For beginners , medium to fast average drivers , the option to let the car safer is faster in my opinion.

    I have tested @fordlaser gearbox . I'm not faster myself with it and the 5th last gear is more than 10 kmh too long. the longer 4th gear is nice for some few sectors only where you don't need to upshift. It's a nice build that perhaps fit to other people.
    The only lost of performance of this car is when you upshift. Even if it is a custom gearbox , this mercedes gearbox do not perform as other sequential gearbox in the game on a modern car for example. Upshifting cost you a car lenght more or less.
    TRL_adam gearbox is faster because he use only 3 gears around the track in the way of 4. I have builded one to test referring myself to his shifting points on replay , but it didn't work for me because as i have explained in an earlier post , i prefer having a better staged gearbox with an extra gear to be able to downshift on corner entry to generate some extra grip and gaining eagerness to reach an apex. Just a question of driving style perhaps , a personnal choice.

    Tuning in Gran Turismo is DEAD. It's just another game , purpose , with other kind of players . I respect and understand this but i have myself the sensation to have lost a big part of the game . Sure i can still do this for me and a very few others who like to turn a car better but there is no more synergy , no more enthusiasm . RIP
    In my opinion , the capacity to turn a car faster is as important as driving skills . This , since the beginning of motorsport . Real or digital world.

    I use mph but when I convert it from kmh I cannot get anywhere near your gearbox settings!! I’m completely clueless, your numbers don’t even come close to what I can set mine at....any ideas why ?

    Don't use the speed but ratios only.
    1st set final gear to the max , full right of the bar.
    2d set top speed (autoset) to the minimum full left of setting bar
    3d set each individual gear ratio to the number showed.
    4th set final gear again at 3.200.

    Just proceed in this order and it have to match. Good luck.
