This is the setup I'm used for the 1/12 --> 15/12/2011 online Time Trial at monza circuit. I finished at 434th +2.951 on the fastest time. The springs are softer than I'd like to try and stop the car launching over the curbs, grabbing 2 wheels and causing a spin, with the rear camber high for similar reasons. Looking to reduce the rear downforce for better speed, and see what I can do with the diff.
So far I've been running on my controller, using the sticks, and with that you only brake for the first 2 chicanes, and are flat the rest of the lap. I look forward to giving this a go on my steering wheel, and trying to creep closer to the lead.
At this stage I'm +2.6 on first place.
Oh yeah, the transmition numbers are all greyed out except for final gear, so I can't change anything but final.
Had a go on the wheel and found a bit of time, you get much better chage of direction, crisper turn in and life is just better with the wheel, even if I can't find centre with no feedback. Newer setup is lower downforce as I can turn with the wheel faster.
So end result was 434th +2.951 seconds on the fastest time.
Regarding transmission: I forgot this specific car only allows the final gear ratio to be changed. PD saw fit to have this be the only car in the entire game that's like that. I don't have an easy way of enabling that restriction on the setup form, but thank you for mentioning it.
If I remember correctly in GT4 you managed to find a way to show only the gears that were used, so a Supra would have 6 slots and then final, whereas an FGT would have 7 and the Final. Not sure if you could do the same and only show final as it is the only setting you can change.
The plus side to the situation is that nobody can be confused about it being in km/h or mph.
Oh come on am I the only guy who went and bronzed the S.Vettel X2010 challenge to get the car without knowing about the B-spec level 35 thing? (S.Vettel opens up on level 30). At the time I thought you had to gold it, and was seriously disapointed I could only bronze them, but was stoked to see I still got an X2010. They also gave some out after Vettel won the championship.
The S.Vettel challenge is in special events hall, and only becomes visable at level 30. Good to see you have GT5, I'll add you shortly. Have you had a crack at the Monza online time trial yet? You can borrow cars if you haven't tried yet.
A quick thank you to the as yet 3 neglected voters on this setup;
Way back in December I got the first vote from COLOMBIAMIGUE7, and in January the 2nd from sashagoose, and at last in March from brujito, thanks guys! Sorry for waiting so long!
