What do you pros suggest regarding settings and parts?

Thanks!
Have you checked out this site? http://www.gt5-tuning.com/index.php?...ategory:Models

There's a lot of good setups on there that I use for many of my cars.
Hope this helps.

Stil down by 8sec on the Fiat 500 race. Down 4sec on the Subaru race.
At least I managed Gold on the Lotus race. Won by 0.012sec. Photo finish. Won a Pigani Zonda LM Race Car as the prize.

Sure, I'll get you those settings as soon as I go on there again. I'd have to look at them because I dont remember what they were. I got them off another site ages ago for the other Fiat 500 seasonal event.

Just hook the car up like you normal would just dont do turbo make it all motor then dial down the power. Suspension should be setup anyways you set up a fwd car. Get the 5speed short gear transmission and what not. You can do weight reduction even then just add the extra weight to the rear. I noticed making it close to 50/50 weight distribution really helps.

I used two different Fiat's to see if it made a difference and its pretty much what he said. Just add performance parts to improve the engine response. Just be careful not to fully upgrade it or you wont be able to decrease the power enough. I was never very good with actually setting up the car (ie. camber and toe and all that stuff) so I'm sure with a proper setup gold would be an easy accomplishment. Both cars I used I had the power limiter down in the 50% range. Just dont go all the way down because the car will get more powerful as you drive it and you wont be able to restrict it past 50%.

Edit: My air of experience trophy just popped. 2 more trophies to go!

rblu its pretty easy to do an alignment fwd you had a lot of front camber and negative toe. For the rwd cars you do the same since most of the weight is at the front. For rear engine cars though you had lots of camber in the rear and in the front. Spring rate and compression/rebound depend on the car.

If you want more oversteer you stiffen the rear sway bars, understeer you stiffern the front ones. I played with a bunch of settings for my lambos and there unbelievable now.

Just won the Fiat 500 race with ease using this setup:

http://www.gtplanet.net/forum/showth...58#post5412058


I won it by at least a second and I was taking it easy the last lap so I didnt mess up. Ran 2'03's with ease, even ran a 2'02.

I'm thinking that the triple CR will be taken away today with the updates..."for a limited time".

Sharing my Fiat. I got third with it, sure someone can adjust it to do better. If your car is "perfect" why not do the same? You can use it on back up profiles that way and help your friends out.

Have there been any cars added since I got rid of this game a few months ago? I feel like an idiot because I've been itching to play this for a while now and not only do I not have the game, if I were to repurchase it at a discounted price, I deleted my game save data. 2 months worth of consistently playing and it's all gone. I'm such an idiot!!!! But back to my original question...have they added the '10 model or newer Mustang yet?

I got second on that setup car I am sharing, increased the transmission setting up 2 settings.

I expect to see some standard cars come out as premium, maybe soon.

And check it out. Just like they sometimes have your car in the movies when the game starts, now your A spec driver, in his current uniform is in the movie where he is walking by all the helmets. AWESOME>

How many different ways can you earn new outfits and helmets? Or is it just seasonal prizes? I wish it was a daily login bonus like the paints.
