This was a very difficult car to tune. Its as if I had to detune it just to make it drivable. This was very strange. I detuned it to where the SR was very low, RH was 90,90 and so on. I then tried many combinations to give the car a planted feeling. It never happened. It seemed as if the brakes locked up in every turn and the car would veer to the left or right. I then lowered the brakes to 3,2. This helped but the car still seemed twitchy and was uncontrollable. I then messed with the LSD. Which I almost never mess with. I've never really needed it. I raised it very high as you can see. I still had some twitchiness. So I raised the rear downforce. and have now created a setup that is fairly easy to drive. I think the main thing you need to keep in mind while you are driving this car is that it tops out around 260mph on the straightaway's of most tracks. So keep your lead foot held back a little bit.Its not very fun to drive. and is a real pain. But if this is the only real fast car you have available then try my setup. Who knows you may love it. Thanks in advance for the feedback.

Thanks for posting this setup, I have tried all the others that I could find. For my driving style this setup worked the best for me. This car handles great and in the straights I was able to get up to 256 mph on Circuit de la sSarthe II. On my first practice lap I recorded 2'51.960. Thumbs Up

At a loss with this car

Im at a loss with this car. Nod Angry Nod
It doesnt seem to have a rival within the game. Confused
Ive googled the reall car and it seems its whole purpose was for LM in the late 90`s.
It weighs in at 1000kg and has just short of 800hp. Put it against any other LM race car and it really struggles to do any good at all. I feel really down about this today and I am considering selling my black one. Mad Crybaby It out duz all JGT cars and yet cant match LM race cars so I dont know where to or what to race it aginst TBH.
Nice car fast car but .................. it just feels so insignificant having it around. Confused Smile

Hmmm... Not quite true for me. I used this car to get 200 A-spec points in the Gran Turismo all stars at the 'Ring. It's a good car because it seems to have a fairly low a-spec value compared to the other LM cars. In fact it's the weapon of choice in quite a few A-spec 200 races. Hope this is some use, and you didn't sell the black one yet!

The way I race using GTvault and Excel spread sheet.
The setups on GT vault are teams. Each car has three setups which means three teams on my spread sheet for one type of car. The setups I use mostly are the ones with the highest ammount of votes on GT vault for a particular car.
If you race this car (R390) with its three best setups against other cars ( GTone, 787B, Minolta etc) with the three best setups, it never seems to beat the others. The reason I believe is because it doesnt have an equal on the game (GT4). Obviously it doesnt always come last in a race but other cars always beat it overall.
I must apologize if this sounds alien to anyone Paranoid Smile
I can explain further if required Big Grin
It passess the time for me and keeps me out of trouble I spose LOL Wink Smile
