I tried CE on Le Mans yesterday. Thought it would be easy since I run LeMans all the time. And it mostly was. But, holy crap you can take that last section fast in the Peugeot! I golded each section but not the whole lap yet. Because it could take a while. You make one tiny mistake and forget it, 3 minutes lost. So a little tedious. Especially annoying if you trip up close to the end.

I lost traction at the last chicane, and missed gold my .2 seconds. Rather annoyed. Lol

I can't win any of the Human Comedy races to save my life. And apparently all the advice/tuning set ups I find online are all "pre-update" and worthless. And the AI has no qualms about spinning your ass out either.

2 or 3 shouldn't be too hard with the right cars. The Trial Mtn one should be on the easiee side since it is a one make race. I remember the kei car one sucked hardcore.

I gonna start doing em tonight. iirc first one is Miata one. How you guys setup your Miata?I got up to 275bhp w RH tires.

I'll have to look mine up later.

I think that one was one of the easier ones to win.

WolfpackS2k 05-10-2022 02:47 PM

Honestly I hadn't tried the single make ones yet because I'm a cheap ass and don't own the Miata or BAC. Over my lunch break however (snicker snicker) I bought the BAC and let loose on Trial Mountain. Upgraded brakes, transmission LSD and bought SS tires.

"Easily" won. I say easily in that I won by 48 seconds but also I didn't make any mistakes. (Okay I didn't brake early enough for the final chicane and touched the wall - 1.5 sec penalty, but otherwise nothing!). I saw advice online to pit every twenty minutes and to start on SS tires but them switch to SM for the final 2 stints. I'm not sure why that was suggested - going 20 min on the SS tires is more than doable. So I did SS/SM/SS.

I've struggled on Kyoto (best finish 3rd place pre-update, recently my best is 10th, lol). Also Alsace I got 15th (bronze, woohoo!) and 2nd at Deep Forest.

Kaotic Lazagna 05-10-2022 03:15 PM

I think I did the BAC race on just medium tires with focusing on tire wear.

My BAC and Miata settings.tm These were before the update, so PP has changed. I would just add some ballast and/or reduce the ECU output to bring the PP back down.

I'd probably also retune the suspension now since cars are more understeer-y. Also, I don't think those are where I had the gear ratio/speed set to. Post update, all of my cars have been put to some random speed.

What kind of retarded mind in GT thought it was a great idea to make a miata 1hr race in the rainstorm? I forgot to buy IM & W tires, so I was stuck racing in RHÖ result is, I took 3rd place in the first try. Iíve adjusted lil bit more now, so now my miata is pushing +280bhp! Iíll try again tomorrow w this setup

WolfpackS2k 05-11-2022 08:18 AM

GT's obsession with RAIN in so many races is getting more than a bit annoying. They need to recalibrate their calculating for that. Also, if they're going to simulate a long race by speeding up time then we need radar screens that are able to show a few hundred miles out.

Beat Kyoto last night. Apparently trying to win with an old car (22b) was a horrible idea. Was pretty easy with a Mk5 Supra on RH. Added custom transmission, race brakes, front splitter & rear wing (when tuned to max downforce this actually reduced PP) and race exhaust and the PP was right on 550.00. Won by around 15 seconds.

Wait, how do you have more power, but less weight and still have a lower PP than mine?

You have custom Racing tran, but I have custom manual is one factor. If you look at the height of the car, you have it 95 vs mine is 105. LSD setup is different as well. IDK how you can adjust your front downforce, cuz mine can't. There are few other things that keeping it PP under 600. Yesterday after the race, I've changed up more and I think, I got it up to 287bhp now & still upder pp600.

Haha if that was the case, they should of let me win instead of p20 ramming me in the heavy rain and make me go off track and lose near 20secs and 3 positions. :mad0259:

Kaotic Lazagna 05-11-2022 11:51 AM

Ah, and your rear downforce is much higher than mine. I don't know why my front is adjustable, but yours isn't. I don't think I even messed with adjusting the downforce on the Miata. Lol

And I see you kept the toe in on the rear. I zeroed mine out, which really increases the PP.

Kaotic Lazagna 05-11-2022 11:59 AM

Speaking of the rain, I got the Alfa 155 yesterday since that was one of the cars I used a lot in GT2. Did the LM grind race where it did pretty good. It rained enough to bring the traction bar to the top third, but I tried staying on RH tires and only pitting for fuel (no tire change). Was able to maintain some kind of control, even with that much water on the surface. Built up a little over 2 minutes of a lead, and noticed that by the time I'd finish the 6th lap, I'd have exactly 2 minutes left. So I risked it and parked next to the finish line watching the guy wave the green flag for 2 minutes. Lol. AIs caught up, but decided to put just as the last second on the clock finished, and I crossed the line. Ended up being 5 seconds ahead of 2nd. LOL

Haha, yes I've played that wait out the clock thing several times but fortunately no close calls yet.

I saw the 155 in there, glad something cool popped up. Will definitely have to get in there and try it. Haven't been able to make time to play for a while.

Yeah, I kept the rear toes in 0.20.. which will get the rear out a bit more, but downforce to reduce to lost of traction plus shaving PP as well. But overall PP shaving that helped was the suspension & Trans.

Yeah, I just got back on yesterday from not being able to play for 2 days. Oddly enough, my daily ticket was a 5 star. Lol

Castrol Supra FTW. Its a beast. I use it for all GR.3 events because it has a ridiculous amount of downforce.

I used to use C.Supra until BRZ GT300 came long. Now, I don't use it as much anymore.

My go to now has been the R34 GT500. But the Castrol Supra was a monster and very fun to use.

I tried to use my R32 as much as I could until it just wasn't doable for endurance races or races where you would normally use GR4-GR3 cars. Its an absolute rocket. I think I've driving the R32 more than any other car.

WolfpackS2k 05-12-2022 07:56 AM

I'm getting sick of all the rain. IT DOESN'T RAIN IN EVERY RACE PD. Good Lord, gimme a break!

I really wish GT7 had a system like F1 games, where your team gives you the heads up about rain incoming, or before you go into a race it shows the conditions of the track, fuel left, gap between opponents, race strategy. Even if it was only for GR class events.

WolfpackS2k 05-12-2022 09:02 AM

If the intent is to simulate a long race in a condensed format then the radar distance needs to be expanded. 60 mile range isn't very helpful when a storm moves in at 200 mph, SMH.

FYI my mileage leaders right now are:

Aston Martin DBR91 - use for almost every Spa 1 hour race
R32 GTR (highly modded) - this was the first "fast" car I won that was easy to drive
Ford GT (2006) - use to earn credits in the WTC 700 LeMans 30 min race.

I used it in 2 of the human comedy missions. I never tried using it against Gr4 cars since I know it won't have the reinforce to keep up. Lol

Been getting worse than the lowest cash prize in the roulette tickets. One was brakes for a car I don't have nor would want to ever use, and two have been invited for the Euro cars. Blah!
