GT6 Nürburgring Production Car Time Trial Competition.

Post  Forgetful on Tue Dec 17, 2013 10:23 pm

Welcome to the DriverSports.org GT6 Nürburgring Production Car Time Trial Competition. 

This is an open invitation to run any production street car, in stock form, around the Nordschleife in an effort to compile a comprehensive list of Green Hell lap times for the street cars of Gran Turismo 6.

To participate your car must be considered a 'production' model', all modifications must be removed, and it must be equipped with the default tires it was purchased with. Oil changes, body rigidity restoration, and engine overhaul are allowed, as are custom rims and paint. Custom aero parts are not allowed.

All laps are to be run in 'Free Run' mode. Go to Garage>Test Drive>World Circuits>Nürburgring Nordschleife Weather: Variable / Time: Variable. Time and weather settings are open. Figuring out the ideal conditions should be a bit of a challenge.

It is your choice between manual or automatic transmissions. The Driving Line is optional. Active Steering is prohibited. Traction Control is optional. Active Stability Management is prohibited. ABS is optional. Skid Recovery Force is prohibited (off). Grip Reduction on Wet Track/Track Edge (found under Course Settings) must be set to 'Real'. This one is easy to miss.

To be counted a lap must be considered clean and legal. No contact of any kind with barriers or cones, and with at least two wheels of the same side of the car on or inside the white line or adjacent red/white curbing throughout the lap.

Legal:

Illegal:

Post your time with the full car name, your PSN name, the full lap time, the date the lap was run, the tires used and the PP of the car. Please save your replay for posterity. I can also upload fast and unique laps. It is also good form to include a photomode picture from your run, just so we can ogle the pretty cars.

Don't feel obliged to run the fastest cars, but glory awaits the fastest of the fast. The more diversity the better, however, again, please stick to 'normal production' cars. You can run a car that someone else has already run. Rankings will be sorted fastest car first with slower drivers in the same car listed underneath.

It is correct to assume that the 15th Anniversary Editions are not production and not legal, even if GT6 does allow them for events that are production only?

I believe they are modified from the original cars, so no go.

That's what I'd assumed but wanted to have it posted early in the thread for newcomers. Folks coming to the thread, not the aliens from Alien Nation.

Forgetful,  I love you for putting a Lotus on the top of the leaderboard. You nasty Zondas and GTRs stay away!

Ok, what a difference tires make.

I'll post the official stuff later but a Dino at 420 > Trans Am (Wonderland) at 421.

By half a minute.


Eventually I'll do a CTS-V against a 288 GTO. Both are 528 IIRC.

Car: Pontiac Trans Am ’78 (Special Edition)
Name: The_Revengel
Time: 9:01.120
Date: 12/19/2013
PP: 421
Tires: Comfort Soft


.
 
Car: (Ferrari) Dino ‘71
Name: The_Revengel
Time: 8:26.778
PP: 420
Tires: Sports Hard

Lesson?

 
Neither time is fab, but I wanted to get back in the habit of this.

Don't worry, there's a GTO in my garage that's just waiting it's turn to take down the Lotus.

Just FYI Stephen, I linked to this on the GT5 Autocrosser group over on Facebook (~95 members), so there may be a few new guys poking around.

04 wrx sti spec c

Post  rapid butterfly on Fri Dec 27, 2013 7:42 pm

hello, all.  I saw this event listed on the GT autocrossers group.  Registered here, I guess that makes me the new girl.

I am not very fast, but I'll submit my time for the '04 WRX STi Spec C.  As delivered - no changes - 8.21.423

EDIT:  8.15.272

I believe that 8:06 was a good real world time for one of these - by "Gan San" (Kurosawa Motoharu) of Best Motoring fame....but I'd love to see what you talented people can do with her.

Welcome rapid butterfly. Glad to have you. Keep cutting down those lap times Smile

Can you check and see what tires were on there? Probably SH, but just want to be sure. Also need the listed Performance Points (PP) and controller type.

Also, you said 'as delivered', just remember you can do the oil change to gain the few extra hp from the magic racing oil.

Time is posted, just needs some updates.

Feel free to update your times as often as you like.

I certainly don't get all of the Polandball comics, but when I do I feel smart. Definitely had to look up a few flags to make sense of some of them.

Because utes are inherently cool... like wagons, shooting brakes and diesels.

Clearly you don't hang out on the same car blog I do. The ultimate car is a brown manual diesel wagon Miata.
