post your car, HP, and mods
Looks like I need to get to practice and figure out what car to use...Im feelin either Camaro or Corvette. I guess Im just that close-minded...lol
Nice setup Mazda6man :clap:. I'll probley use my evo 3 or newly bought R32 GT-R N1 :mrgreen: , maybe even my cappacino. :hi:
Yea sounds alright...I just dont like the tires...
We could take digital camera photos of the screen to verify our times that we didnt lie...
ummm i cant do the suzuka race so i guess i forfiet that. but anyway ill try my best. oh and plus i dont have a esb or whatever it is you connect it to, but im honest anyway
my car of choice for the whole cup
Nissan Skyline R32
as close as possible to 300hp(it wont go over promise, cause im using arcade mode cars i dont have my own yet)
unknown because i dont have my own car, i might just keep my car stock
Well, I think Im going to go with the Pontiac GTO or Buick GNX (I think it was the GNX. I havent looked at the stats on any of the cars so idk. I cant use my Camaro or Corvettes because of the 300HP limit....
Ok, this may sound like a crapy idea, but what if all the participants use the GT symbol in our avatars just so we know the we were entered? Nissanspdr has it in his, and I wanna use it.
I'm in, probably going to end up using a R32.
So we start racing this saturday, then we have a week to PM you about our times?
*edit* what? less than 300hp? That means I can't use the formula gran turismo? :laughing:
oh actually, what suzuka is it? is it the whole track or the east section?
the whole track... if you have to... race it in gt mode... its all the same... cept for more cars init
oh ok ive got all gold now in the national B licence but no car
ya I need this game to come out for computer, I am getting sick of NEed For Speed Underground 2. It is fun but the goal I think is to make your car look as ugly as possible. Love racing games though. :thumbs:
sorry mate, it aint never gonna come out on pc. its strictly a PS2 thing(according to sony)
took the words right out of my mouth ahoo...
Sony makes the GT series. Sony makes the Playstation. Sony will keep making as much money as possible with ti because they're the only ones who will sell it for their game system, which means people might buy a playstation JUST for this game....
thanks for detailing my answer
I've chosen my car...
Lotus Elise 111R (hp:300hp exactly)
I'm going with the lotus 111r also. Should be a good matchup.
Are we doing rolling starts or stop starts?
Thru GT Mode...you get a rolling start for the course...ie Trial Mt. you start b4 the last S curve and then hit the front straight at speed
rollng start doesnt matter... just take your overall best lap... so you go 5 laps, and your 3rd is the best, use it...
k, my cars chosen...
lancer Evo V - 300 ponies
I'll use my
04 Mitsubishi Evolution VIII MR GSR with 300hp
So do we just PM you with our times mazda6man?
Get off my car!!! LOL
NO, YOU GET OFF MY CAR!!!!!!! :laughing:
This way, we can see who the best driver really is. That, and that the lotus is the best bang for 300hp.
Sorry for getting to this so late guys. I was up at my sister's house on the north part of the state this weekend (Drinkin Bacardi playin poker). Apparently, I can't use any Camaros or anything that I have. So I went out and bought myself an NSX. 289hp(I think. I know it's not over 300). Well, good luck guys! :thumbs:
bought me a nissan skyline r34 N1, exactly 300hp might buy couple extras later, like suspension and drivetrain ill post it later
yeh, just pm the times to me by saterday...
i just realized something when i was looking for tyres... by sim tyres, i guess theres no im tyres... so use standard road (N3) tyres
yeah, was wondering about that.
Here's another problem. Because of the gentlemens agreement in japan, all the japanese cars over 276 hp are 'restricted' to 276, when their true power is above 300. How do we solve that little problem?
Well of course when you go to buy a used car or a new one...the HP is a lil fishy...but once you have the car and are in SETTINGS where you can choose which tires and mods and gear ratios you want...it shows the TRUE hp in the upper right hand corner. Also in your garage it shows the TRUE hp of the car...
dont wory about it... its not really that big of a deall is it?
Mazda...you got a PM...hehe
My time has been posted for you
Ok...just an idea I had...
Time Trial around Tsukuba Circuit WET.
Car Class: Production
Horsepower range: 350 to 600 tops
Tires: Sports Medium
Mods: Sports everything (no going over 600 HP though)
NO WEIGHT REDUCTIONS!!!
[EDIT]Don't PM your times just post them on here
I think we should PM the times...that way it's like a silent auction...you
dont know what the other ppl have so you wont be tempted to cheat
Personally...dont like the idea...
yeah, me neither... i like the deal i have set up... but you know.. im not bias or anything... cuz you know its not like its my own work or anything *sarcasm*
I like the way yours is too, but I wish I could have a car with a bit more HP...
So umm whats going on with this?
ok, so here it goes... i think evertyones is in...
1st place - Satty101 - 97 Acura NSX - 1:31.384...10 pts
2nd place - Mazda6man - lancer evo V - 1:34.843...7pts
3rd place - GreekWarrior - Amuse S2000 R1 04 - 1'35.110...5 pts
4th place - Godlaus - lotus 111r also - 1:38.561...3 pts
5th place - NISSANSPDR - 04 lotus 111R - 1.39.367...2 pts
6th place - ahoo - 1'54.754 - Nissan Skyline R34 N1...1 pt
darn thing, it was stock (N1 GTR) :banghead:
Wow, coolness. Can we do suspension and weight reduction and brakes and
Looks like suzuka circut is next...figures I suck at this course... :banghead:
i told you yes didnt i? over the pm...
I know im past the deadline but was wondering if I can join for the rest of the races. My time for the trail mountain track was 1.34.987 but i will assume im disqualified. Anyway, wondering if i can join for the other races?
Oh yeah. I forgot. Sorry :oops:
i didnt forget, i never saw the post until today at around 9pm,thats crazy btw satty how you got 1:31.384 i took every corner perfectly and could only get 1.34.987, i tried cutting corners and ridding the railing but still could only get 1:33.431, i dont know maybe your just extremely good or something or you may have a little more HP then you thought. well if you did it legitimately, damn your good :clap: :clap: :clap:
Cutting corners is illegal and DQ's yourself
i never cut corners, i was saying that its almost impossible to get his time even with corner cutting. i gave me legit time, the time i was using to enter the race with, and my corner cutting time to see if sattys time is actually real. which i found is the case and sattys time is legit. i wasnt in the race yet anyhow, i was waiting for mazdamans confirmation first. but i see your point about corner cutting and being DQed.
There was a race in GT2 that gave away big prize money at this track so I kept on racing on it perfecting my skill. I'm probably best at Trial Mountain, Laguna Seca, and Seatle Circut. Laguna Seca was one of the American Championship tracks on GT3 i believe helping me out with it, and Seatle Circut I use as my test course. :thumbs:
those are probably my best tracks because they were in the earlier GT's, i eventually got my time down to 1:32.041 so its not as hard as i thought but still your good. still wondering if i can join the races?
It'd be kinda hard to win the whole thing starting out w/0 pts. but I guess you could...
Is anyone else finding it extrememly hard to get under 2:30.000 on Suzuka circut???? :cussing: :banghead:
Ill keep workin on it then. Man....I really can't find a line here, and this is the first time I've ever raced here. Bah
go to the license test i think its the A license and you race on this track, you can follow the Skyline pace car to find braking points and the most efficient line. hope this helps
ive got an idea Import-tuner. i cant go on the PS2 too much because ive got exams soon so maybe we can be in the same team, you can take my 1 point to help
actually you can just take my spot, i really dont feel like doing this anymore. sorry but i dont have the time for these two months, too much happening at school so there you go. good luck to you all
I don't think that I put up much of a fight this week. Looks like we'll find out today though.
This is kinda unrelated to the cup, but if it is good, it maybe my car. (My STi Spec-C has 500 Hp, so it is disqualified). Is the Toyota Triatholon (sp?) any good? I dont know what it is for because it has only 265 hp and weighs more than my STi (around 1100 kgs) it weighs 1200 kg, I think. Thanks! :thumbs:
I think the Toyota Triathalon is a concept car...therefore also being disqualified from racing.
Ok, I am just wondering what it is used for in GT4. It says it is a race car (it is called Toyota Triathalon Race Car), but in what race?
A race in the future!
ok thanks ahoo, your 1 point wont help much but thanks anyway.
Yo, Mazda...where's the places man?!?

Holy crap. i did worse than I thought. lol :banghead:
oh well. Laguna Seca is next if I'm not mistaken. hehehe. :mrgreen:
damn satty what happened? did you use the wrong car or something?
I think Satty said this wasnt his course
yeah i understand that but 22 second difference is crazy. i think he may have raced the wrong track or something.
Hahaha damn it, I knew I shouldn't of drifted. :laughing:
There's a time and place for drifting...road courses...usually not one of
Nissan, you've got the same car as me, it takes me 5 hours to get that time I got, and you come out with one 11 seconds shorter???????? :cussing: :cussing: :cussing: :cussing:
5 hrs? LOL...I think I got that time in 20 mins...about 8 laps...then I
had to go somewhere else...so I was like...shoot I wont have more practice
w/it but I decided to go...
Maybe it just wasnt your course...
There was one turn where I always slid off into the grass/sand. It ALWAYS got me, so. I tried and that's the best time I had until I had to leave for the rest of the weekend so, I couldn't try and get it down anymore...
eh i dont think it has anything to do with the car, but everything to do with driving style, skill and technique. i had the same car as both of you and got a much faster time then you and almost the same as SPDR.
Can we do this again sometime? I want to try it, but with it already going
I cant join in, I didnt see the thread soon enough. :thumbs:
Good luck all! (My money is on Satty, but he damn well better pick up the pace!)
Oh great, now I get pressure. Sheesh, thanks Sti. :doh:
Lol, no problem.
I dont suppose anyone would wanna switch cars in the middle of the
season?Im suddenly realizing my Prowler was the better choice. By almost 10
seconds on Laguna Seca alone. 295HP, all the other mods with no nitrous.
Got a time of 1:23.484 :drool:
Oh well...I guess I'll have to stick with my NSX :banghead:
yeh, i figure il start it again when thisone gets over, with different requirements
It's all ways the time and place for drifting. In GT4 of course. :mrgreen:
Give us an idea of what the next requirements will be...
Lemme suggest some tracks only over 4 weeks so we can start a new one each month...
1) Grand Valley (Full Course)
2) Costa d'Amalfi(it's Tarmac so dont worry)
3) Deep Forest
4) Fuji Raceway 2005
My suggestions for the next one are these:
HP Limit: 500HP max
Weight Limit: 1000kg min (nothing below that)
NOS: Not allowed
Electronic Computers (TC, DSC, ASCM): Not allowed
I say we have an un-limited class. Any car, any mods, anything, the creator
just has to name the track, and collect the times.
You already know what car I'm going to use;
Polyphony Formula One :mrgreen:
See..that's what I want to avoid...ppl just get that or the Escudo and it becomes no fun
I agree. People like me who can't even seem to beat the championship race in Professional series... :cussing:
How so? All the variables are locked in; same track, same car, it all comes down to the driver. Isn't that what this game is about finding the best driver and having fun with it at the same time?
I vote for that. That way I can use my STi! Having a competition that goes forever is annoying for those who want to change cars, etc.
you could make a one race one make tournament where everyone uses the exact same car and exact same mods on that car. so, for example, you would tell everyone to use a 2005 evolution MR with al mods except nitrous and race at laguna. Then the next race would be a 2004 nsx-r all mods except nitous and race at el capitan. Then its all about the driver and not the car. With the requirement on the races we are using right now, i tried out 8 different cars and got times ranging from 1:31 to 1:47, thats a big differential. so one make races would be the way to go.
yeah, those would be pretty cool... all except for the no limit race idea... some people dont have access to the f1 cars yet, so it would be totaly unfair... those people being me, cause i hardly play the game anymore cause of work, except to play for this...
Exactly...not everyone has the F1...and some ppl have work, school and
actual lives...so no unlimited class
I like the One Car, One Race idea...definitely cool.
I guess we can setup a poll to see which will be the next GT4 Cup!
Works for me, I also like the same car/same mods/same track thing.
I like how everyone's attacking me for having the formula one car. Do I have no life?
1. I set up the nurhburg 24hr on B-spec on a school night and went to sleep and school the next day. The prize car is the Polyphony Formula one.
2. I got the escudo by winning that one rally race, which took me 30 minutes
3. I have to go set up a friends birthday (today, actually) and then go get a license and set up a bonfire for another firend's birthday this Friday. This thursday, me and a couple other friends are going to go see 'sin city', then go to somebody's house, mess around with our air soft guns, play some games, just be teenagers. This saturday to sunday, there's a LAN at one of my friends house, so I'm going to be gone from the house pretty much from firday night until sunday morning.
4. I quit my job about a month ago for sports, which is practices monday-saturday 3:00-6:00. Not including my own workout. Luckily, we have this week off for our spring break.
5. I'm currently in school, junior year in high school, actually. I take a couple AP classes and 1 honor class, maintain a 4.0 GPA and I have a couple slacker classes that allow me to get on a computer and talk to you guys on the internet.
Soooooo...Don't give me the I don't have a life crap. Somehow, I manage to live my own and still play GT4. Hell, I got the F1 by not even touching my controller.
So, I guess the morale of this story is: You have time for everything, you just have to divide it up conservatively.
so... when you b-spec a race will the computer controlling the car tell it to go pit in? also is the 24hr race really 24 hours? i thought it might be so i didnt even try it. ohh and my vote is for the one car/one race idea.
I just started playing last Monday and havent had that much time to play. I havent even finished the Beginner tracks (I have done the Japanese Championship to get money and a nice 350z Race Car). I have a good car and such because I transfered 100k Credits (the max you can transfer, I had like 1 Mil in GT3) from GT3. I most certainly cant compete in a open class race. Hell, if I did this I would have to do it on arcade because I cant afford a really good car. (Except for my 500 Hp. STi, and 507 Hp. 350z Race Car (Stock)). :thumbs:
ive owned the game for about 2 weeks and played it exstinsively over spring break. i own almost every car because of the one make races that you later have to do. but maybe we could do a one car/one race sorta thing in arcade mode and everyone has to use the stock arcade car for each race that is chosen. That wouldnt be as fun though, because the stock cars are slow and turn badly, but this could help accommodate some of the newer players. just a suggestion.
I havent played too much arcade mode...just w/friends...but is there a Time Trial mode in arcade mode? If so...then we could do what you are talking about...if not...you could always still try the One Car/One Track/One Race idea...buy the car, modded it out to the way you want (obviously some will mod it out all the way but sometimes modding out a car to 900 hp is not a good idea), get the tires you want (RSS) and tear it up!
What are the RESULTS!!!???!???!
sorry, i couldnt get to a computer last night... il have them up in a minute

Also: are steering wheels allowed? I am getting one, and I was just wondering if I can use it in the next cup.
I'm too broke to afford the wheel. it's like 150, probably only about 120 with my discount, but whatever. And I thought that time was damn good too. Sheesh. :screwy:
yeh, you could use a wheel, but i think it would just make it that much harder for you
shouldnt my score be 15? because ahoo donated his 1 point to me.
The one I bought is the second best Logitech one, its $80, but I had a gift certificate from my birthday, so... Ill see if it is any good. :thumbs:
AHAH CRAP I FORGOT TO RACE @%$#%@%#!!!! :banghead: :banghead: :screwy:
Ok, I have all week off of work except Friday, and Saturday Im going to a concert, so I gotta get my ass in gear with some practicing. Infeneon Raceway-sports car sourse is next. Another course I hate with a passion, but I'll practice for about 2 hours each day if I can. Grr....NEED....TO...WIN!!! :doh:
Yea I hate this course...Sear Point Infineon
so, wonder who might take 1st place today, SPDR might just catch M6M. pretty fun to watch lol
next season ill be prepared, better car lol. i dont like the 1 car 1 race idea too much, cause ill probably lose :banghead: really want a car to be able to turn as good as my N1, any1 seen the guide run on nurburgring? scary for a licence test :ohcrap:
Bah, Nurburgring is easy for me. I've raced it enough. It was the only race in a few other comps of mine. So I've got practice there. Just gotta get a final time set for this week. Im not doing too bad dispite my hatred for this course.
You better do well. I dont want to loose all my CF money. He he...
hey, sorry, i was late again on getting the results up... il have them up in a minuite

i knew i wouldnt do good this week didnt have time to race so i just b-speced it. oh well
wow, haha atleast you got the race in...
Sorry had some stuff to do for school and crap. :banghead: :banghead:
hey guys... i just got gt4 a couple of days ago :hi:
and was just wondering if in the game any stock car beats an m5 on the track. I believe its the car with the highest top speed?
I think there are plenty production cars that are faster than the M5...
really? i just tried a couple.. the nsx, the aston martins, the viper...
I must say, using the steering wheel is really fun. They put F1-style paddle shifters etc. Its really fun! :thumbs:
how much was it for you?
I had a $50 gift card, but it was about $60-$80 or something, I dont really
remember, but it was certainly worth it. :thumbs:
Its not the one that says "Gran Turismo" on it, that one is like $100-$120.
Yeah, it's 150 around here. Ill stick with the controller
I just got mine off of CircuitCity.com. I had a gift certificate as a said, but it was origonally only $80, I think it is a pretty good deal. :thumbs:
Ah, shoot. It was El Capiton this week. I thought it was Seatle...
Back to the game I go..
Results? Man maybe I should take over this!!! LOL
sorry, that ive been late on the last few, and im sorry i never thought about this before... but im PST... its only 730 right now...

EDIT- sorry, fixed it...
Geez, you two are crazy at this game. lol
only game i play
Generally I only play this game. Ofcourse the only time I ever play the game in the first place is Fridays or Saturdays, thanks to work, school, girls, and my 3 car clubs...
God, brother took over PS2 for the past couple days, wasn't able to race. :banghead:
Shouldnt M6M be behind Nissan in the rankings? 34 to 35 pts.
That's why you beat him! What are brother's for?
just fixed it
I had the Greek Easter. :mrgreen:
I'd do that, but then he just lies on the ground and cries. Parents come, I get in trouble, Godlaus' car = junkyard.
Did no one play this week?
I couldn't. I had WAY too much work this week, and next week is worse. So looks like Im out of this comp. Sucks too because I hate my damn job, pay is crap, and they only seem to give me more BS work. :cussing:
Dang, and I put all my money on you too... Oh well. Good luck to everyone else!
sorry guys, i wasnt here all weekend... so i couldnt even play... il get the um, time (singular) up and update the list soon...
One person raced? Who was it? Perhaps you should just not count this round?
I raced...that sucks...this is exactly why we need this to be only 3-4 wks long...people need to stay hooked...maybe even make it only one week and have them sit down and get 3-4 timeslips...you know
I just havem't had the time to race to get the time down to a competitive level, so i just don't. Sorry :ohcrap: .
So should we give it one more week?
Or why dont we do this? Let's skip this week...and continue on to the Nurburgring...and that will be the final race
i havent been here for awhile, as you can see i missed the last three races. Anyway, i agree with nissanspdr the competition needs to be shorter so people stay hooked. Like me, for example, i looked forward to racing the first two races but then just didnt have the motivation for the other 3 races,instead of racing i did other things. so after this competition i think you should start a new competition that is 2 weeks long, 3 races the first saturday and 3 races the following saturday.
Have it go like this...a 1 week time period to race 3 tracks...best total
time over the 3 tracks wins...all mods are allowed minus NOS and has to be
less than 500hp...no prototype's, concept cars or full blown race
cars...must be production.
That's just an idea...if anyone buys into it...
sounds good to me, but how about we use "NOS" there is a skill involved with using it.
That, and I already have it on the car I was going to use.
