GT-R Official Record - Bronze Trophy

10 Replies 3,289 Views Created 29-11-2010

Whooooooooop!!  :smileyvery-happy:  Granted I only just nicked it with a 7:28:538 (target 7:29:03) but a win is a win.  That was tough and a big buzz.  Made a nice change to grinding away at A-Spec etc...

 

For anyone interested, to achieve the trophy you must enter Arcade Mode, Time Trial, Nurburgring, Nissan GT-R 07, and must use the Sports Hard tyres or any of the comfort range.  Have fun!

Well done! That looks a hard one to get to be honest, how do you know you can only use Racing: Hard though? Surely Racing: Soft would be better suited to the challenge?

The trophy won't unlock with any of the Racing tyres.  They have to be Sports tyres: Hard, or any of the comfort range.  I guess sports hard must be the most similar to the ones used to break the real world GT-R lap record.  The first time I did it I posted 7:14 vey easily with racing tyres but the trophy didn't unlock.  I didn't know they had to be sports.

 

It should have been a silver trophy at least.  I've only just realised that the silver and gold trophies are only awarded for people doing the long haul.  A couple of silver and gold for very tough but short challenges would have been nice.  Not complaining.  Just an observation.

No.  You can't do any mods in Arcade.  I had ABS set to 1, but had no other driver aids.  Manual transmission, "Real" selected for touching grass/kerbs, and simulation mode on Driving Force GT wheel.

Some say he has counted to infinity... Twice, and that his eyes blink horizontally. All we know is, he's called the STIG..

Sighter lap was 7:33.061 then second lap was 7:26.992

I know towards the end of the lap I was being quite conservative and I was 0.5 down in just the first sector from my first slow lap because I made an error so there is still plenty more time to come. 7:22.xxx is a good lap though!

I hate the 4WD combined with those tyres, the car tends towards an understeering balance and I hate that.

Ah, I see, well good to know. And yes, GT5 has 59 trophies and only a few of them are silver or gold, the majority are bronze :Winner:
