So I was looking at the speedhunters website and I came across this awesome post. Check it out and read between the pictures. This car is nuts. I'm not sure how much it weighs but it has 800hp. Thats way more hp than we can get in GT5 but I'd like to see how close we can get to this lap time that he ran. I would say the tires are comparable to our sport softs?? (what do you guys think?) I'm gonna hook up an S15 and RACE MOD it sometime this week and see how close I can get to that time. Looks like we can get the hp to 471? and the weight at 1000kg. So, if there are any takers in this experiment, please post you're times here and lets see what we can do...

 

Obviously we're way short on power but who cares. Let's see what we get!!

 

Specs:

 

02 Nissan Silvia RM 

Max Hp

Min Weight

SPORTS SOFT TIRES

 

Tsukuba Circuit

Track surface: REAL

Tire wear: OFF (even though he ran through 4 sets of tires in about 30 minutes!!)

 

If you have the time, please post your tune with your lap time and any tips you find to make a quicker run around the circuit. 

 

Enjoy!!

Wow, love the guy's commitment to all the finest details in his car. This was a great read .

for some reason the mobil version of this post was not showing the other stuff that I wrote after the picture. So I changed the color of the txt so it wouldn't blend in with the white background. Not sure why it didn't change to black like it usually does??

This was online with no assists

 

First 5 lap run - 58.895 best

second 5 lap   - 58.459

final 5lap         - 58.374

 

new car only had 421 horsey power, and was still hard to get power to the ground.

Thanks face. I was thinking it would be around 57-58 seconds. What do you think about the tires. Should we bump up to Racing Hards? I never know how GT5 tires compare to real life tires. Imagine how it would be with 800 little ponies thrusting that car forward!!

I don't think so, IMO SS was a nice combo of grip and slip. Not ever driving a real race car on asphalt, my assessment of the tires is speculation at best.

 But something tells me that that guy in real life had super soft grippy tires, to blow through 4 sets in 30 minutes.

 

I also think mid to low 57s is easily doable, 56s maybe.
