Re: Seasonal Events

The NASCAR event was pretty easy, got into the lead at the karussel on the 2nd lap.

the Mazda event is freakin impossible though, I've got a car that is only just eligible, and the best I can manage is 10th

Yeah the NASCAR was easy once I stayed on the track.

The mini one wasn't bad.

I got lazy with the Mustang one and just cut the corkscrew.

I missed out on first by a second for the Ford focus one.

 

Just had a go at the Mazda I lost by 3.095 on my first attempt. I put TC at 1 and SFR on to give my self a fighting chance.

Re: Seasonal Events

Yeah, I tried with TC on 2 and SFR off, got to 9th this time but still 44 seconds off first place.

Re: Seasonal Events

Looks like SFR might be the way to go.

 

What lap times are you getting? I was hovering between 59-1:02 laps.

I think lap times of under 1:01 will be needed to catch it.

I got second at the start of lap 8, and at some point the last placed car gets in the road.

Re: Seasonal Events

the reason it is so hard is cause it is so fun, my car was drifting on its own through the first few corners so i got sucked in to drifting round all the hairpins, gonna spend a bit more money and try again

I turned TC off and lowered the transmission for my next run which I ended up 2 seconds behind.

I had another run right after, caught him first corner final lap won by 5.8 seconds. I had to do low 1 minutes to do it.

Re: Seasonal Events

Not sure what planet you are on, but the Nascar event is bull5hit.

 

I finished with the same split time I started with... 14 minutes of my life wasted on a retarded concept of an event and now I cant even sell the car.

 

Yet ANOTHER brilliant thing about GT5

 

(waits for fanboys to jump in defending GT to the death.... how dare I speak ill of their beloved game which can do no wrong)
