TVR Griffith 500 Road Tune

Price: $48200 (including parts)
Power: 440hp/5500rpm
Torque: 580nm/4000rpm
Top Speed: 200mph+ or 320kph+
Tuned mostly at Nurburgring and Motegi Road Course

My key focus when tuning this car was to create something that was reminiscent of the 427 Shelby Cobra. It's 5.0L V8 coupled with a 1 Tonne body makes for some fun driving.

I've set the car up to drive as well as possible around tracks, while feeling lively and fast all the time. Please be mindful of the throttle when going around low speed corners. The torque will kick in fast and you'll smoke the tyre's, so be careful. This just adds to the character of the car and is addicting at times.

A customised LSD provides more traction when cornering, but if you want it be slide well I suggest moving the LSD Decel setting to 40. I've kept the muffler stock to keep the V8 rumble note as it sounds great.

I think this is one of my best road tunes yet and I would like to hear anyone's feedback.

Update 29/10/10: Ignore the Front LSD numbers, it's only a glitch. Use the rear numbers only.

Hey Brette!
You have front LSD numbers, but its only FR... error or mistype?
Also, its been way too long since I've been on GT4 and GtVault, starting to miss it!

Hi Stigs,
Sorry about that. Somethings glitching and not letting me get rid of the front LSD settings so I can't fix that up at the moment.
Hope you don't get too carried away with missing GT4 or GtVault though.
Kinda nicked the way how you post, hope you don't mind.

Hi Brette,
If anything I'm pleased that you've adopted my method of posting, sort of means something about it is right! Until I hear back from you if you've seen or heard about the F1, I won't mention it, seeing as I don't know if you'd be up at 2am before a week of getting up early. Looking forward to a big summer, full of GT4 challenges and GT5!!?? Nov 25th (AT LAST).
See you around mate!

The front still has LSD values, lol.
