Re: [GT4] GPCC 2 - The End of the Beginning

Sep 1, 2010

 

It's been awhile since I have ran any laps and my does it show! I'm a bit rusty behind the wheel but found some time tonight to lay down some laps. I decided to go with the IS challenge as I didnt feel like looking closer into all the rules for the rest of the cars. Bought them all in colors that accent those flamboyant clear tail lights the best! All of the cars hurt in one place or another but were all fun in thier own way.

Ps. I seem to have misplaced my flashdrive so pictures are of the point and shoot at the tv type.

 

 

 

 

2'05.552 - Lexus IS200 '98 - SI Class - NTonini

 

This guy is by far the worst of the bunch. the puny little engine begs you for an EpiPen everytime it sees a hill in the near future. The only thing it has going for it and its a far cry is that stock you have some camber adjustments. Any adjustment away from 0 camber helps her a little bit.  Once you get her over 5k rpm she climbs ever so slightly quicker but even that is hard to come by because of the gearing. Toss a 1000hp engine in this baby and you're looking at a land speed record car! Get her out of third and you better be have a foot over your brakes as these tires love to do all they can to play the "lets see how long it takes to stop" game.  If I had a choice I would leave this car to the rich teenage girls. You wont be seeing one of these in my garage anytime soon.

 

 

2'00.862 - Lexus IS300 Sport Cross '01 - SI Class - NTonini

 

Fat wagon is... Fat. The extra displacement of this hoss does give a bit more power to her step but you really have to work her to stick to the road with these tires. The gearing in this girl is much improved over the regular is200 however quick chicanes and slow corners need special attention to lay down any decent lap times. I need a bit more practice with her but I got tired and still had one more car to run.

 

 

1'59.921 - Lexus IS200 '98 (J) - SI Class - NTonini

 

Finally a real sports car emerges! The Japanese model of the is200 has one screamer engine (although not super powerful) that is a blast to rev all the way to 8500 rpm! A chassis that doesnt mind being turned into a corner (amazing isnt it?) and a real thrill to drive on the N3 tires! It's terrible that this was the blast of the night but the other two were just that disappointing to me. All cars were lacking in the suspension department pretty badly. Not to mention the final drive ratios.  After a hot lap I usually run a showboating lap to try and get some decent pictures. Just barely missed kissing the rail in this corner exit!

 

Been great laying down a few laps tonight, hopefully I can get some more time soon and find my flash drive to get some decent pictures up!

Nice to see you back, NTonini.

 

Grabbed a Blue Mica Toyota Altezza RS200 Lexus IS200 (J) for the Showroom Intro class.  I had forgotten how much oversteer can be had with N3s on a regular car.  Fun driving is fun, despite too-wide gearing preventing me from staying on the Mr. Hyde portion of the cam profile of the Yamaha-tuned 3S-GE at this slow track.  Casino Square in particular I had to be really careful, fastest lap was with holding third gear through there instead of the seemingly obvious downshift to second.

Re: [GT4] GPCC 2 - The End of the Beginning

And then I ran a real car, and a freshly-built one at that.  Lots of ads for Honda here so I thought I'd finally have a go in one.  I wanted to run the same car in both Touring and GT (especially since the used car cycle had just cycled) so I grabbed this lone Formula Red example.  A little math led me to run the car maxed out for GT, and detuned and heavily ballasted for Touring. 

 

'Maxed out' included P&P and Balancing so my 'base' horsepower is 298, there's almost not enough ballast available to weigh it down to 4.5 p/w.  Honda Insight wheels out of the used wheel cycle weren't as shiny on the car as in the GT auto so I hid them with motion blur.

 

298hp - 1342 kg (195 kg ballast) - 4.500

 

1'43.774 - Honda NSX '97 - Touring - clacksman

 

 

 

For GT I lost the ballast and put all the speed parts available on it.  No other real changes from Touring setup besided longer gearing ... and new used wheels.  Championship White thin-spokes with red H logo.

 

454hp - 1147kg - 2.524

I had a lot of troubles with this car. I could not stop the whells from spinning . It behave almost as a FF car.


Yes that cars AWD is wacky ... stock.  Buy a VCD controller (Variable Center Differential) for it to get the power to all four wheels.  It's in the part of the tuning shop parts screen with weight reduction.  The default setting will be 30 (I think) but you can change it from 10 to 50, the number is for front drive %.

 


Thanks clacksman, I tried the VCR and it made a big difference. This is the first time I tried this option.

I had this car in the garage,and it had the weight reductions already.  I was not sure if it was eligible, so I bought the '99.

 

 


With cars like this, the newer one isn't legal until the year it's listed as in game. So that Jag isn't eligible until '02.
