    I get no pleasure out of driving the GT-R's except when I cheat and drive the 4WD N24 NISMO GT3 2011... Besides that, the SLS AMG is my fav. The Audi's I can't seem to keep the tires from smoking on every other entry but their smoking on every exit! Any words of wisdom?

    For somewhat reason the standard R8 GT3 is faster and grippier than the premium R8 GT3.

    It has playstation logo so must be faster. :sly: Just kidding, for some reason standard car's are faster than premium version (same was with Ford GT 05 standard model in GT5 that was faster than premium 06 and they was same car.) So maybe physics is less accurate for standard car's...

    Toyota FT-1 Vision Gran Turismo, according to someone in the last Free Run lobby I was in. :lol:

    As-is, R8 is the quickest in my hands around most tracks. Where crowned corners are prevalent and the R8 tends to unload the rear, the more stable SLS is my preferred car.

    Tuned, well, I've only tuned the R8 (to subdue the tendency to unload), so that's what I use.

    There is a 15th Anniversary Edition of GT6. It is the version that I purchased. It comes with a code that you have to enter and when you do, you receive a boatload of incredible cars for free. The only downside is the anniversary cars can not be painted or modified (wheels, aero, etc.). Also, the anniversary edition cars are always a little bit more powerful than their standard version in the dealership. The reason for that is the anniversary edition will come with Sport Exhaust, or maybe a Low RPM Turbo charger, or something like that. Usually the car will only be a few PP different, but they're different nonetheless.

    This is what the box looks like:

    A110 1600S 15th Anniversary Edition
    R8 LMS ultra 15th Anniversary Edition

    If the sir wishes t complete the GT3 Chamionship or a TT actual GT3 cars are slow as wet wigs. I would reccomend a cheap GT500 or even a fully upraded Grayiya. For more expensive choices the Furai, McLaren LM /GTR cars are good, the TS030 is the best. And... the Z4 is the best GT3.

    The Z4 is the only good GT3 car. The rest are understeering garbage. (IMO)

    Edit: oops I forgot the R8, its good too.

    What now? I've always avoided standard cars whenever a premiun version is available. Will have to change my ways.

    To me the Z4 GT3 is the best of the bunch. I love the R8 aesthetically, but can not drive it at all.

    Why can you not drive the R8, not to be rude or condescending, but we all know the SLS AMG GT3 feels more like it's its driving on rails, the GT-R is either under or oversterring like crazy in which we fix, the Z4 GT3 has excellent width, great a adapting and the R8 is one of the best GT3 cars if not the best. I use to cuss at it at the beginning, just like all the others, but you can drive the Audi just as good and personally I think better in terms of 1-1.5 seconds on your lap time better if you realize the confounding variable in this game that most all cars have different uniqness to their chassis, weight distribution, power to weight. and realizing that HP means 1HP =70kg moves 9ft or 3 meters. I know very little about cars, but like anything else in this world "the road to utter perfection is paved with good intentions! Buy it, use it and in a couple weeks you will for get that BMW ever decided to put a roof on a Z4, thus let alone moving it into a gnarly GT3 machine. and i hope you stay in touch and keep me up to date on your thought as well as progress driving the R8 if you do choose to step outside your comfort zone! Cheers!

    The R8 is one of my favorite cars, yet I rarely use it. I'll run some laps around the Nurb with it and see how it goes. :tup:

    Oh okay, I apologize man... So basically yo feel that when you commence say the NURB with the Z4 GT3, it's a mater of more easier to anticipate what that particular vechile will do say you hit the flugplatz on a awkward line as opposed to the R8, I agree that there it much more work, this time to conquer when than baby steps out of line which i agree is probably 10-15 times more often than the Z4 GT3 and as well as their GT2 cars(BMW). Moreover, I apologize for misunderstanding you post. i sincerely apologize a and if you race without a controller and are looking for a GT6 specific simulator or string wheel, short throw 7-speeds, and lastly racing pedals that come with your very own Puma racing shoes that are so easy to adjust it's basically a one fits all let me know! Cheers and let me know if your R8 becomes an animal because maybe a specific tune or just how you bloody drive it bro!! Take care and I wish you many ass-kicking wins i the future!

    That's exactly the problem with PD. Their idea of rules is "funny" to say the least.
    GT3 events should be only available to GT3 cars.

    Well, some might, considering the fact that the M3 in the game is a modified GT2 car to fit with the regulations for the 24 hours of Nürburgring and to compete with the whole GT3 field. I assume that most people running a GT3 lobby will have their own sort of BoP anway, so it's not entirely out of the question to let that M3 race.

    Everyone is saying the Z4, SLS, R8, etc, etc. First off I think the GT-R (stock model, in other words road vehicle) should have way better acceleration as, in real life it can beat the Lamborghini Aventador SV. However, I am aware that there are regulations in the GT3 Race Series. Second, why not test all cars and see which one can perform better whithout having to think much.
    As for those who are wondering which is the best car for GT3 championships, I would say the Ferrari FXX, any F1 cars or any Le Mans cars. GT3 specifically i would think most likely the Z4 as it has a great Hp/Kg or Hp/lb ratio or the McLaren F1 GT3 because it is very powerful.

    That's a GT1 car.
    He was closer, at least he identified it as some kind of GT car.

    And no, I am not certain as to what the different regulations are but I am aware of the fact that just because it is a GT3 race doesn't mean that the game wont allow F1 cars.

    And yes I am suggesting that as the GT3 cars seem a bit... sluggish, to me.

    Well compared to F1's and GT1 cars yes they would be. (Also avoid double posting)

    Anyways, in my opinion the best would definitely be out of the Audi, Mercedes and Nissan. I'm oddly against the Z4 but i'm sure it's quick. I will post some bone stock lap times soon. I hope for GTSport we get the Ferrari 458 or 488, McLaren 650s or Lamborghini (I think thats a GT3 car, correct me if I'm wrong)

    I think the Diablo is a GT3 and the 650S is a good idea.

    It was the first car for the Supertrofeo, it wasn't built to existing regulations. GT3 didn't even exist until 10 years ago.

    GT1 was the world's premier sportscar class until 1999, as it collapsed due to Mercedes spending their way to the title. That was when the "LMP" class structure took over. The Kokusai Kaihatsu McLaren F1 GTR in the game is an early GT1 car, but the BMW F1 GTR is a slightly later car.

    GT2 saw a boost when the GT1 regs were introduced, as a few manufacturers weren't comfortable with such big budgets. This then formed the top category of GT racing until 2004, with N-GT slotting below it. The FIA reintroduced GT1 to cater for larger supercars, and split GT1 and GT2 to form individual series. The BMW M3 in GT6 is a later GT2 car.

    GT3 was introduced in 2006. It works on a customer car basis, and no works teams are permitted. That is now the biggest class of GT racing internationally, although it's exploding in terms of budgets, so don't expect the current formula to last for that much longer. The SLS, GT-R, Z4 and R8 in GT6 are all GT3 cars.

    GT4 cars are very close to production spec, so are much cheaper than any other GT class. There aren't any GT4 cars in GT6, but you can make decent replicas from the road cars available.

    GT300 and GT500 are categories in the Japanese Super GT series, but they're easily distinguishable from the other classes.
