No, I'll be doing it once a week for four weeks.

And while I'm racing I'll try to do as little pausing as possible, and I also won't be eating so hopefully I won't have to go to the bathroom.

Yeah those penaltys are most annoying..Especially when its the AI car that is responsible for the bump.

Just completed 1000 miles at Nurbergring(spelling)...I'm kinda getting into this endurance stuff :nervous:
I've done them in 1>2 hour driving stints .Fair amount of B-Specing also.Just get get a lead and switch over.

1000 milers aren't that bad.
I was thinking a 500 mile NASCAR race takes 3>4 hours so I though 6>10 hours per 1000 mile race.
Not so.2.5>3 hours.

Finished em all.Very dissappointed by the car awarded but the cash was good(150k per and 450k for the "cup")

I used a 61 Jag.No engine upgrades but threw on a racing suspension,brakes,transmission/clutch etc.Won them all by a mile(IE:8 laps up at Opera)

The cup was actually 1,000 miles total, not 1,000 miles each race. Each race had around 250 miles, which is why it was 2 1/2 hours to 3 hours. I enjoyed the Nurburgring and Circuit de la Sarthe, but Paris and Monaco were boring as f*ck.

Yeah, the car that was given was a horrible one at that, but it didn't really phase me.

I too used the Jaguar, except mine was fully tuned to the roof. On Nurburgring I used a stock setup with limited my top speed to ~149, and at Opera I set all gears including final ratio for top speed and was able to reach 140 mph in 4th gear at Paris, so I was much happier. It wasn't until Sarthe where I reached a top speed of 200mph.

My competitors were an Alfa Romeo Giulia Sprint GTA, Marcos Mini GT, Volkswagen Karmann Coupe, Honda S600 & Fiat 500.

When I started the championship I didn't have enough money to buy S1 tires, so I was running S2 tires and was pitting every two laps at the Nurburgring, every six laps at Opera and Cote d'Azur and every five/six laps at Sarthe.

Then with my 900,000 credits I fully tuned a Cerbera and SL65 which I entered into the British Lightweight Cup and Premier Sports Car Lounge, respectively. I also bought a couple other cars.

After that I bought a Clio V6 Phase 2 and did the Tous France Championat. Won that.

I just bought an Alfa Romeo GT and will be running in the Italian Cup.

'deu.

Heh, i'm not doing those damn endurances. Is the Escudo actually good for anything? I spent loads of time and a bit of cash on my car to try and win it, grr, it's crap.

1000 miles TOTAL..oh ok...that would explain it.Guess that would be about right.

If you havn't done 24 at the Ring yet,do it.Its well worth the effort for the prize car.

B-Spec is definitely a part of my endurance efforts.If I had to actually drive it all...no way.I just cringe in fear of PS2 lock up or power outage at hour 18 or something.Those last hours can be tense.

I've had GT4 for a while now. I have a few questions.

1. Once you've modded cars, is there a way to 'unmod' them, or to make them qualify for events which are available only to unmodded cars?

2. Does anyone have any tips for the graduation test of the International 'A' Licence?

I've probably forgot a few, so yeah. Thanks in advance.

I've realized that an unmodded car is a car that has been bought as a stock car (ex. Mistubishi Evo. VII GT-A) and has been tuned by Mitsubishi/Rally Art. That car is classified as unmodified. But, if you try to use a custom car or a racing car in an event that requires unmodified cars, you will not be allowed.

And for IA-16, just keep practicing. I believe I finished it 13 seconds ahead of Gold. smile.gif

Yes. Before any given race, enter the 'Settings', i.e. the place where you can fine-tune the car's setup. In the top you'll see 'Set A', 'Set B' and 'Set C'. Under each of these you can save a setup. After having tuned a car, A holds that setup, whereas choosing B or C will return the car to it's stock form. ~az

Try to learn the art of drifting.

I tried for a bit, and got one decent drift out of it. I'd say it was quite clean, so I made a little video. It can be found here.

Thanks Chunky and azazel. smile.gif

I managed to complete the graduation test. Now it seems so easy.

Also, I was able to qualify some cars for 'unmodded only' events, but some that you win, especially race cars, are permanently modded. It's a pity, most of my good cars are permanently modded.

Thanks once again for your help.

You can have tuned cars in 'Unmodded Races', just as long as they are cars like the Nissan Skyline R34 V-Spec II and not cars like the Spoon S2000 Race Car.

Nah meen?

If anyone still cares, recently I won the 'Formula GT' championship. I thrashed them. I would qualify 1st, then b-spec most of the race. I won 11 of the 15 races. The car that you win is the Sauber C9 Mercedes.

I've just gotten back into GT4 and I'm at 51.7%.

Good work, cice.

How long does a race in Formula GT usually last?

Around 1 hour and 40 mins, normal time. They're the same distance as a normal F1 race, well trying to be. You have to do 78 laps of Monaco, just like the real F1 does.

I see.

Well, I'll be A-Spec'ing the entire championship, then. First thing I'm going to do is A-Spec the 24h at Nurburgring, though.
