450 PP Tsukuba Best Lap Times.

[ Edited ]
12 replies 902 views Edited Feb 8, 2013

I am looking for some good cars for this track using non race or race modified cars that can do sub 57 sec laptimes while max PP=450

Any upgrades  expect for race mod's and using race tires. So far the best car I found this the BMW Z4. I was surprised that how many cars suck at 450PP. I figured the PP calculation should make the cars equal. Seems the cars with the highest HP/ Weight while PP=450 are the fastest. Whats your fastest lap with a 450pp car on this track.

If I had to guess, I would say a Miata or an S2000 would be great on that track. Or try using the DC5 Integra, that might run a good lap there. But still I would say you'd have the best luck with the first two.

I think the premium '88 Supra is strong at 450pp, it has like 500hp or something ridiculous.

I also think the Mercedes 190E is supposed to be strong

The 2.10 update reduced the pp for lots of FR cars in such a manner as to make it much less equal than it used to; those FRs will  now be the fastest as they tend to have ~100hp more than a FF/MR/AWD at the same pp which is useful even at a little place like Tsukuba.

 

FC RX-7s are highly improvable to get to 450pp but not the easiest to drive.

Maybe at full weight.  378hp 410lb-ft at 1239kg with maxed GTauto aero is 449pp not-broken-in ... and runs ~1'00 on S-s at Tsukuba.

Is this search for cars related to the current time trial? Maybe it is just a coincidence, but I thought it was 400 PP.

 

No wonder my little MR2 struggled for a Gold time. Smiley Tongue

I might have been thinking of the RX7 that you mentioned. I knew I saw a late 80s early 90s Japanese sports car running away from the field at that PP level a few weeks ago (I guess that doesn't really narrow it down Smiley Very Happy). 

 

Based off some 500pp cars from the old scale, the Toyota FT86 Concept, BMW 135i, and premium RX-8 might be able to do 56s, depending on how much their PP was dropped.

I don't think the RX-8s got adjusted much.   Broken-in premo is still ~423pp stock.

So which tires are you using? The seasonal requires CMs which make the MR cars drift like, well, a drift trial. MGT, how did you pull a gold with that? LOL. I tried like hades to do it with the Reault Turbo 5 and only managed a silver. Got frustrated and checked the leaderboard and golded on the first lap with the premium Miata.

No I use the Tsukuba track as a quick test because of the 60sec or less laptimes. I dont want to spend hours doing quick tests. I selected 450 to average a range 400-500pp
