Could probably win that event without doing anything to the car at all. Easy 1,500,000 cr. and 120,000 exp.
Only thing I did to mine was tires and I took the lead on the 4th lap.

True The experience is more important to me anyway, already have over 7.5 million cr. so the cash isn't that important at the moment, especially as I've already bought the most expensive car I'll probably need (the Formula Gran Turismo). I'm on 27 A-spec and 23 B-spec so all extra (easy) experience is welcome.

Was I one of the few who actually had the Citroen WRC already on hand as a prize? Forgot from what B-spec event it was, though.

That link is blocked here at work. Is it the vid of the guy(who looks like he's wearing socks!) sling around the YB on the Ring?
It is an older video and the wheel work is crazy going back and forth. He has white socks on and shoes from the time the camera cuts to his shifting. I don't know how he didn't hit some of the motorcyclists he came up on, he seemed barely in control. Lots of drifting in corners. I actually had only let the B sped drivers use mine, without issue, and when I went to use it on Daytona it was so out of control I thought they had broken it and sold it. I kept spinning out at high speed on the banked turns. But like I wrote, the tunes on GTP forums that I have seen say the car is still wild afterward.

Its not from bspec, its from the Sebastion loeb rally challenge. I golded the first, but I hate the k trail more having rabid turtles eat my sac. But now that its a needed car, I might try the other 2 tracks.

That event pissed me off so I never completed it. That was before I had a wheel so it may be easier now, but I said hell with it and went ahead and just bought the car.

You have to turn on the (dont slide around option?) for K trail and traction control to 0. The next race in the snow is MUCH easier.
Just noticed your location, I'll be there next tuesday, wednesday and thursday.

Reminder for my Le Mans club at GT Planet races tomorrow at 3 pm eastern, 8 pm GMT. Three races, lasting about 24 minutes each. The cars for the races are:

Race 1 and 2

French Cars, to honor the host country. Go to your garage and sort by country.

Race 1 will be max 175 hp
Race 2 will be max 300 hp


Race 3 will be limited to European cars, preferably Touring cars. Examples would be: BMW 320i Touring Car, Callibra Super Touring Car, DTM cars, BUT any car make in Europe is OK, max power will be just over 500 HP.

I will post the room number on here at 2 eastern tomorrow. All aids will be available, no tire limit, no mechanical damage, light rules. There will be at least 1 race with weather/time on.

I got that matte white paint yesterday, too.

Not sure about matte white on the LF-A, but matte black really looks good on it (and matches with the grills on the rear, normally the most unattractive part of the car, as well).

So I'm not that familiar with all the models of cars but is there a faster car than the Toyota Minolta 88-V? SDG was kind enough to loan it to me until I got one myself and so far it blows everything away and handles incredibly well.

Finally defeated the Nascar Bonus #2 Seasonal Event. I have a renewed hatred for driving Nascar on that track. It took me a few tries, but I was finally able to get gold even though neither lap was very clean.

Yes. The X1 is the fastest in the game. But there are other cars that are similar in speed and handling to the Minolta. You are racing against AI cars that aren't fully tuned. I got a Bentley Speed 8 recently and its very fast. Same with the Peugeot Team Oreca.

If you want a Grinding car, get the GT Formula at the online dealer. Think it is 3.8 million, you will need one anyway for the Formula GT races.

I'll get your RX-7 back to you next time im on, might be a few days. I finaly beat it before they removed the restrictions. Thanks

Any tips for completing the 3rd NASCAR event in the advanced section? I can't even get close - the pack takes off with the exception of the Energizer car.

Or is it even worth it? I thought I saw that if you complete the NASCAR special event (bronze or better), you get a NASCAR. If that's not true, I may save myself the torture and just buy one.

Seriously ! When will the rain stop? I'm now 10hrs into the 24hr LeMans and it has been raining for 8hrs. I get it, dynamic weather. That does not mean it has to rain the whole time.

You have to get Gold on all NASCAR Special Events to win the NASCAR. Which is extremely hard to do after patch 1.05 since you can no longer turn off ASM. Bronze gets you a classic muscle car. Silver a modern one.

Advice. Draft, draft, draft, then draft some more. Don't try to take 1st untill the final turn or you will get passed again and lose.

Did you see the movie Le Mans? It rained for most of the race. It does that in France in the summer. And you have which car? The one without wipers!?
