I feel really sorry for that Fiat FT500 at Nurburgring... going until 100 km/h max speed. laugh2.gif

I've only B-Specced the 1000 miles but I also lol'd at the Fiat 500. Poor little thing, my B-Spec lapped it so many times it wasn't even funny. laugh.gif

I really want to A-Spec it now. I got Half-Term holidays right now for another week and a bit too... pinch2.gif

At least the hard to get OTHER cars in GT4 would make things less of a drag. Not to mention the sort of system-breaking endurances like the 24 Hour Sarthe I and II, and Nurburgring races. Also the License cars in the License tests too could pose quite a challenge.

Back to Updates...

Went back to the Euro events to race in the 1000 miles challenge. What am I driving? A Hakosuka GT-R, The very first one. I max modded it, 280hp Turbo with TCS 1. Thought that I would be going on a sparring match with the Jaguar E type w/c has 250 hp... Sadly, they placed in an Alfa Guililla Sprint, like the one in the ex-D movie.
(Chinese man from movie: crying2.gif Oh, my Alfa... Oh Romeo Romeo Romeo crying2.gif )
I'm doing round 2 in a little while...

Very different from my R34 thats for sure tongue.gif
I keep sabotaging the race for Chevrolet though, lately they got lapped by the Mazda Cosmo so it is not looking good for them.
Maybe not so strange when they have a 400 HP R34 throwing them into the pits and otherwise making a bad day come true for them tongue.gif

Leave it at x3 speed in B spec and each 24 hour race will be over in 8 hours. But 8 hours is still too long. sad.gif
Not to mention like going back every single, how's say set of 10 laps just to reset the speed, every time your car makes a pit stop. It's such a drag. Why can't they just fast forward the pit stops? Heck, like that'll happen.

Damn the 1000 miles race is long.
But still, Corvette is 1 lap behind the Mazda right now although it is the start of the race, I have marked out a few spots I can hold him and the Mercedes back if I decide to spoil the race for them even further.
But most likely their tires will run out before they can catch the Mazda.

I have a curious question...
Has anyone tried the F1 Challenge championship match at the Extreme Events?
If so, are you really gonna use an F1 or do you have to struggle with your own car against GT4 F1 cars?

Happy New Year to anyone who still plays GT4....

Recently I have decided not only to return to GT4 but also IDW Forums =) lol

Anyway, I've been working on full tuning a Tommy Kaira ZZ2 and various drift cars with funnyliy idiotic settings.

Oh and nice to see that some people came up with a challenge that limited the budget of the competitors.

^Your sig makes no sense. Judging by your logic, I could race a clapped out Yugo, but since it's on a track, it's still a good car?

It's a quote I modified from a game to fit into something to do with Skylines. I didn't expect all people to get it. And it probably doesn't make too much sense either lol *scratches head* That sig has been on since I left the forums


I guess I better change it...


Anyway, Fin-toy, do you remember that 911HP R34 GTR you have and posted its setup here on the forums? Well I've been testing a slightly changed version of it with nitrous and soft racing tyres. How fast have you taken it around Clubman Stage 5? I've clocked my one at around 45.8 seconds.

I'm still playing GT4 because I still don't have the money to buy a PS3. >_<

I'm still tuning my cars in GT Mode, and I play Arcade Mode a lot since I have to test drive the other cars. happy.gif

I still happen to play GT4.

I would sometimes drive around my Trueno around the Costa de' Almafi course.
(And the Trueno I have happens to be the Suichi Shigeno Ver.)
[I don't wanna spoil who sold the Trueno to me...]

Ugggh, GT4 was such a shock to me. The physics and layout of GT3 were ingrained into me by the time I popped it in, so I had to readjust to the little nuances between them. When I did get into it fully, I don't think I got very far then anyway. laugh.gif I stopped playing for a long while, and only picked it back up recently. Worse yet, I don't have a wheel, and the only PS2 controller I have that isn't frayed wires and beat up inputs is the one with an off-axis left analog. Racing with Dpad like GT1 is alright, but >< not without the EZ-powersliding and absurd speed.

I'm at 20-some percent completeness, been abusing B-spec with fast-forward since I haven't had a lot of time to dedicate to practice for the bigger cups lately. But let's see... The best lap I see in here is a 1:22:340 on Trial Mountain with an '02 FD Spirit. Probably terrible, but best that I think I'm gonna get with dpad for now.

I don't want to get a PlayStation 3 yet
For me, I am still playing GT4, 33%, because my previous memory card is faulty, if not i should be around 80% complete.

Currently, still tuning and tweaking car to continue the GT Mode.
