Online Racing Events

Monday, April 29th, 2013

In our twice-weekly online racing events, we’ve been testing out different scenarios in an attempt to level the playing field. I guess this is a plain old pissing contest to see who is fastest, no more than that. It presents an interesting dilemma, though. Virtually every car/truck/tank/POS can be tuned in many different ways.

On Saturday, we decided to use the Scion as a test platform and it worked fairly well. We used Deep Forest (I think) for the track and managed times around 1:27 to 1:30. All in all there were no major discrepancies in the times and we were all adjusting the final drive/top speed ratios as the only tune. This is, of course, based on trust but if you ever race with us, I think you’ll see that this isn’t a problem.

We’ve used NASCAR rides for pure fun with lots of crashing and smashing on Daytona but we take our cars to a road track now and then. I have to say that Nurburgring is a favourite for most of us. There is a fair bit of tuning available on these beasts but, again, we try to stick of un-modified cars for the most part. NASCAR is a lot of fun, believe me. Don’t ignore these vehicles or races because they’re American or because the cars looks pretty ugly.

They’re tough to drive well and, if you know the technology behind them, they’re pretty much on the cutting edge of racing technology. Sure, they’re all pushrod engines but everything else is as modern as you can get. The drivers themselves are top athletes, too. Some of these drivers race a few hundred miles on a Saturday then turn around and do the same thing on Sunday. Conditions in the cars during the summer are oppressive, to say the least. Don’t assume that they ‘just turn left’ all the time.

Somehow we always move to some go-kart racing. In GT5, go-karts are the ultimate ‘no tune’ test subject. Adjust the top speed and you’re off! We usually end up on the Eiger tracks, regular or reverse, and you’d think it was the Indy 500 from the sounds of the drivers hooting and hollering as they vie for first. The races are short, extremely intense and always a laugh.

Finally, and this is the main point of this post, we have used the Cotterham Fireblade every now and then. If you don’t have a Fireblade, pick one up and see what you think. Read the description and tune it however you want. I’ve taken one of mine up to around 250 hp, added everything that can be added and, guess what, it is a real terror to drive. Next to the karts, the Fireblade is the lightest drive in your garage. Adding a ton of power to that chassis is just asking for trouble.

The reason I tricked out one of my Fireblades was simply to see how I could tune it to get it to handle better. Top speed is around 150 or so but getting there on Sarthe was a trial until I did one simple thing. Every corner, every step on the gas made the car feel like it was on glare ice.

What did I do to make it handle better? If you’re online for the Wednesday or Saturday session, I’ll let you know what adjustment I made. Pump up the HP and fiddle with a few things, one in particular. (Clue: it had nothing to do with camber, caster, suspension or LSD). See you Wednesday!

I-C 1 License Cheat – Easy Gold Trophy

Saturday, April 30th, 2011

I had been trying to get this license for a while and kept missing out by a thousandth of a second and what not. So in annoying I did something and BAM! Gold Trophy!

The secret is that the walls next to the checkered flag stop you IMMEDIATELY!

So all you need to do is simply brake late and then turn into that side wall and your done! Gold Trophy most of the time.  So so easy!

I made a quick video to show everyone.. enjoy!

 

GT5 Glitch – Money and Exp

Sunday, April 17th, 2011

Another glitch using online play. These are definitely quite popular. I find it a little odd however.. does look fun.. but hey, you get cashed up and a load of experience!

 

4.9 Seconds around the Nurburgring – Fast Money GT5

Thursday, March 17th, 2011

I posted the other day about a glitch where you get a GTR and travel around in circles for a few minutes for a couple of million bucks.

Well since that was found the guys and Polyphony have patched it.

BUT this one hasn’t been patched yet!

Check it out:

 

GT5 Money Glitch

Saw this video on Youtube and even though I reckon the patch fixed it.. its pretty funny. Check it out:

 

1.5 Million in about 10 minutes – easy GT5 Money

Sunday, February 6th, 2011

Again a quick way to make some big dollars as well as a cool 120k experience points.. an easy way to pass level 21 in GT5 cause I know how annoying getting through that level can be!

Okay, down to business…we will be taking advantage of the awesome seasonal events that GT5 runs every so often. Note this is only available to the end of the month but you MUST take advantage of this now before it runs out.

So here it goes:

  1. Make sure your logged into the Playstation network
  2. You will need a Chevvy so go buy a Chevvy, I bought a ZR1.
  3. Change fuel and get a pair of soft slicks.
  4. Go back to the main menu and go to the seasonal events
  5. Click on the first event, Bonus Race No. 6.
  6. The last race will be at Indy using their old F1 track in the in field.
  7. Destroy them!

After doing this you’ll earn 1.5 million and have 120,000 experience points.

That’s about it. The key here is to bolt on those slick tires as without them it can get a bit frustrating. But once they’re on it makes a world of difference.

 

Over 4m In a Hour – Limited Time only!

Friday, January 28th, 2011

We know that some of the seasonal events can be a gold mine.. well the VW event going on at the moment is no exception.

But this event is only available for January I believe so get in quick and make some big cash!

This is courtesy of Joneseyy from the forum:

Go to seasonal events tab.
Bonus race No. 4:
the VW event, all you need is a racing modified Golf which will set you back 200k
Super Gt event, I bought the Nissan Yellow Hat YMS TOMICA GT-R 08 for 950,000cr but pocketed 1.5mCR with ease after winning the race.

Bonus race No. 5:
European touring car event: you should already have one from completing some of the races in A-spec mode, easy win making you 2m richer
TVR Tuscan speed event: i already had a RM Tuscan speed 6 and the race was incredibly easy

Don’t forget you need to act now because the Seasonal events don’t last and you could miss out on some serious cash if your too late.

1 Million in 1 Race!

Monday, January 24th, 2011

Is this possible? To make 1 million in 1 race? Well for the rest of January it is!

The thing about Seasonal races is that you can make a load of cash by doing very little. Its not something you can take advantage of everyday but hey… you can get cashed up real fast!

It goes a little something like this:

Here we go.. here we go
Here we go, here we go, here we here we here we go
D.M.C. and DJ Run, dum diddy-dum diddy-diddy-dum-dum

J/k. I just had to do that after typing in “goes a little something like this”… Run DMC here we go 🙂

I mean this: (from DJinAC in the forum)

Hi everyone just wanted to post what I did last night at level 15. I went to the special race section and picked the trial mountain course that you need a 2006 Ford GT. I loaded the car with all the race mods engine, suspension, tirea and transmission. I started the race in 12th and got up to 7th when a Ferrari spun me out. I stayed with the race and ending up winning. 5 laps and you get 1,000,000 dollars/credits and 90k in experience. It is in the bonus race 3 section. Just wanted to say thanks to everyone for all the tips and wanted to contribute. Sorry if this a repost new to the forum and wanted to help.
