Just got back, going to get into testing some cars. Hey Blake! I might be getting a 5-speed swapped in for $700! Buh-bye boring auto-cocker!

Okay, I knew an Elise wouldn't do too hot on this because of the fact that it is soo light already. I grabbed the Motorpsorts Elise (It's a legal production car, I checked by trying to enter a production only race). And went from there to use the car as a benchmark.

1999 Motorsport Elise
Oil Change
Racing Exhaust
Racing Brakes
Racing Suspension
Full Customize Trans
Triple Plate Clutch
Racing Flywheel
1.5 LSD
Stage 2 turbo
R3 Meds

300HP @ 700Kg -- 2.330 Power:Weight (Whew!!!)

Best time of 3'54"989

Not bad considering I had a top speed of 187mph on Mulsanne :iceslolan

Here's my second vehicle attempt. I love TVR as they seem to have the most vivacious paint options from any dealer. And it is still striking without having to pull the Baby-sh*t green like Lamborghini and their Diablos of old...

2003 TVR 350C (why not, it spawned the Sagaris!)
Oil
Racing Suspension
Racing Brakes
Full Custom Transmission
Triple Plate Clutch
Racing Flywheel
1.5 LSD
Carbon Driveshaft

Racing Chip
Engine Balance
N/A Stage 2

Racing Exhaust

R3 Meds

496HP@1187Kg -- 2.394 Power:Weight

3'37"086

Top speed down Mulsanne 210 MPH, a bit understeery in some locations but didn't respond well to slipping the rear out a little.

Last but not least, I went with the classic Mid-ships engine design for the final run of the evening.

2000 Pagani Zonda C12

Oil

R3 Meds

Full Customize Trans
Triple Plate Clutch
Racing Flywheel
1.5 LSD

Racing Brakes

Racing Chip
N/A Stage 1
Engine Balance

Weight Reduction 3
Increase Rigidity

499HP@1212KG -- 2.428 Power:Weight

3'34"048

I could run better but I'd wreck out more than pull a faster time with a regular controller. I'd need a wheel if I wanted more consistency...

The Zonda didn't have the top end of the 350C as I only managed 206MPH near the end of Mulsanne. I got a little airborn on the first lap, raised the ride height by 10 mm front and rear and increased the bound/rebound by a smidge.

Blake, have you managed to beat the last of the challenges? I'm getting close again, but I just can't seem to keep it consistent. I wish my MOMO would just bolt up and let me run like mad or if GT4 worked on my PC :(

*gnashes teeth* I hate the fact that the challenges have some of the drivers aids engaged.

Ohh! I might be able to get my engine built up for my car if I go N/A for just around $6000 and expect 100hp gain. The car would be around a 10.1:1 CR with flattop forged pistons and able to handle a Nitrous kit or Forced Induction. Fully balanced, and the redline could be pushed a good bit beyond stock except our ECU's aren't mapping past that redline even with the latest from HP Tuners...

Staying away from Nitrous like a girl that is a known STD magnet though :iceslolan

Not happening any time soon though :cya:

That's it I can't get any faster. I've tryed every car including the tuscan speed six. I think I'm done w/ this track

BTW Dane I found somebody in the integra club that's going to sell me a rebuilt garrett turbo for $185. Sweet. Oh and in december I'm moving back to Austin and in w/ Meg

God, I'm too busy to even attempt this now. I'll probably get back in by the next comp. (Glad to see it back)

Same here, bad timing to get addicted on TXR0 again.

The best I've gotten so far was 3'38.xxx with a RUF RGT. Not fast enough to win so I'm too lazy to post all the stats.

11-14-2005, 08:21 PM
what's for this next week then. let's do a smaller track with a 300hp limit and comfort tires. FR's only or something like that

WarShrike
11-15-2005, 10:31 AM
I couldn't tell if you guys ran with aerodynamic work or not, but I just went all body on these cars at this track. I wish this game had been magically released for PC :(

Blake, sounds like you're wanting to go for a little Dorrifto!

I have laid hands upon the magical scan-panties of Valhalla. Only problem is that the blasted things aren't very good at separating out alot of interfering images. Just before I caught site of the magical drifting thought, I saw a woman taking a milk shower and then a pillow urinating on a bmw logo.

I think I'll put this thing up for bid on e-bay right next to all those people with their virginity up for sale :lol:

11-20-2005, 12:09 PM
any ideas?

WarShrike
11-20-2005, 05:12 PM
I think a return to the Nordschleife would be good. Something along the lines of a trackday that you'd usually see on the normal oen days. I guess comfort tires and relatively stock cars (maybe a sportsman class: sport suspension/exhaust/chip and stage one wieght reduction). Production cars only...


Hey Blake, theres I guy I met that is looking into getting an R33 GTS-T from this guy in West Virginia. I don't think he really knows all the correct info on the car but he said it wasn't a GTR but it was still AWD??? If you know of anybody wanting a turbo, I know of somebody selling one pretty cheap on e-bay right now. It's a T61, the guy has a sick V6 F-body :icon16:

EBAY MANG! (http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=8016119616&ssPageName=ADME:L:LCA:MT:31)

I was thinking nord or maybe deep forest (<<great drift track) either way lets get started soon I wanna play

XeVeNskyLiNE
11-20-2005, 11:39 PM
Hmmmm, I'm liking Green Forest too. Something along the lines of FR only and a 300hp power restriction. Take a look at it sometime and determine a good power-to-weight, I'm too busy playin that new need for speed, lol. I'll check it when I get the chance.

oh and Shrike, GT-s are rear wheel drive. I hope that guy realizes that before he buys it or else he's in for one hell of a suprise.

I'm going to have to say from a 3.6-3.8 just for the fact that we're going to want to be able to include the rx-7s and they're very light weight. I think we should include all rwd not just the FRs.
I tested at deep forest
