This car threw me for a loop the first time I drove it with tire wear on. I thought that my PS2 had gone nuts and assigned me some random setup; it wasn't until a few laps later that I realized what was going on. It seems that this car more than any other in the game loves to have its tires warmed up before it will really perform. Once they were I was good to go. Overall I was very pleased with this car. This setup is a bit more lose than my standard, but I am still pleased with it. The acceleration was great, the handling was great, and the speed was great. All together a very nice and well rounded car. Is that an echo I hear? It had 114 miles at time of posting.
Rating: Acceleration=10.5 Handling=6 Speed=216.4 Total=211.9

Question, Sir, about this setup
Updated 03/27/2004 10:50 AM Post a reply Quote this post View CrashNBurn's info
What are the rear camber and toe numbers? (I assume by "NA" in ASM you mean 0.)

I just got the car, love it, in fact won a couple of amatuer races that my particular driving style was causing me to lose the frst time I used the car with this set up, so thanks for the time and energy you put into it.

As an aside, I noticed a lot of sparking in the replay when flying down a straight. While impressive, am I right in thinking that that could be slowing me down or can I keep them and thus add a little "sparkle" to my racing?

First thank you for your question and welcome to GTVault. With my setups they are meant to be general guidelines. Since all of us have different driving styles I try to keep this in mind and post setups that can be easily modified, as such I only do road setups. Also you can call me DTW.

Yes you are right about the NA, anyplace that you see it you can assume that it means 0 (zero). I am glad that you find the setup is working for you, but don't let it be a substitute for your driving style.

The sparking depends on the course you are running, and it will slow you down on the courses that have lots of dips and shallow spots in the track. It may also cause you to lose some control of the car, especially where the ripple guards, the red and white guards, (sorry but I can't remember their correct name right now) are high. If you feel that this is the case I would suggest raising the front and back ride height by 5 clicks. I did this for some of the courses and was very happy with the results. Remember to turn it back down when you get on those smoother courses as raising the height will adjust the handling and slow the speed of the car some, but not as much as you are losing by bottoming out.

Good luck and I hope that helped you, if not please feel free to ask again.

I thought 0 might be the answer, so I'm glad I don't have to make anymore changes to the settings.

My driving style is simple, what I like to call "The Just Get Out Of My Way" strategy of winning races; go like heck (notice that I do not wish to incurr the wrath of the FCC), slam into the turn (and hopefully into one of the cars on the inside of the corner) and then go pedal to the floor as I exit the turn. This has gotten me thru the Beginner level and seems to be working well as I advance thru the Amatuer level. (Although I must admit to having to pit stop for tire changes more often than others).

I have been coming to GTVault for the past few weeks (since I got GT3) and have found yours, Fumes, and several other's setups quite useful for the various cars I have now.

Where I noticed the sparking was during the replay of a race on the Toyoko track. As I caroomed down the straight (I DO hope those bystanders had health insurance), the sparking was quite spectacular. I'll try rasing the ride height and see what the effects are on my lap times.

Once Again, Thanks
