    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:

    Edit: 996th place! Woo Hoo this is fun!

    Ok my friend, done: 1:38,819. But not far away from you. With a wheel you should be able to catch me, even with auto-gears. I'm using a DS4 and you're a very fast driver. :cheers:

    @fordlaser: Did a few laps with auto-transmission. My best was 1:38,981. I think the most important is this:
    Use the advantage of the wheel and you will be faster. :tup:

    @sdi_03 is a much better driver than me and he is right.

    Found 2 tenth. Down to 1:38,637.
    In the first half of the track I'm even with the big guns. Then I lose time in the second half. But I'm learning and getting better. Some time left to improve.

    Well after watching some of the replays here (very handy, thank you!) I've managed to knock a few seconds off and am now around 8 seconds off in the Gordini :). Position 2,5xx which with 10,934 players (as of just now: https://gtsport.r1s3.net/vault/7/1) isn't bad for me. Just got to find 8 seconds!!! :lol::cheers:

    I too improved a little again, following the new leader.

    Now 1:37.075 for #29........... 1st in OZ.

    The leader, TX3 Komradz (sub 1:36) looks to make a couple of mistakes on two corners which I find helps me to do them better.

    Hi @v8_pursuit I was testing some racecars and I notice my steering settings was to heavy when steering, so I went back to the R8 Gordini TT with sensitive steering and I did a 1:38.706 using Auto :). A few more plays with the wheel settings I might beat your time my friend, and a good lap @Dalone :cheers: and I wish I could join you in the low 1:37s.
