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.

Licence Cheat for GT5 – A-4 Licence

Thursday, January 20th, 2011

I was going through the license tasks the other day and was a little stuck on this one. It’s the A-4 task and I simply couldn’t get out of the &@%#$! corner quick enough.

Even though I run a site called GT5 cheats, I generally try to stick to the racing line and stuff… but love the occasional cheat, especially if it brings some quick cash or gets rid of an annoying level. This does the latter.

The trick is.. well.. simply cut the corners! There is no effort in the game to stop you cutting the corners so you can cut through them as much as you like and get a really good run out of the chicane.

Gold trophy? Give me a go at a Platinum!

I know the video quality is pretty average but you get the idea! 🙂

Why you suck at Rally events!

Saturday, January 8th, 2011

Well yeah.. I guess you really suck when doing the rally events don’t you. You try hard, try to be smooth and can’t get anywhere near the target times, let alone that nut job of an AI!

I struggled too… my car kept bogging down.. the thing had no power and me Loeb would just drive away from me like I was.. umm.. a WRC competitor 🙂

Let me let you in on a little secret. Its not you.

Here is the problem: GT5 as a default sets you up with a traction control of 5 and ABS of 1. Ever wonder why your car bogs down on every corner! It’s because you traction control keeps kicking in and you can’t get moving!

Before you enter the race you need to turn the traction control to 0 (zero) and I prefer to turn ABS to zero as well. This not only allows me to get on the gas and have fast powerslides but also lets me do nice Scandinavian flicks with the ABS turned off.

Give it a go and watch your times drop! But remember you need to have more feel this way as the car will slide more but your speed out of corners will be worth it!



Another Take on the Fast Money Turbo Cheat

Monday, December 27th, 2010

We have seen this before with the GTR, but I thought I’d share with you another video I found. This time, however, it’s with the McLaren. Pretty sweet.

What car do you do this with?


Gran Turismo 5 Cheats Forum

Wednesday, December 15th, 2010

The Gran Turismo 5 cheats forum is starting to pick up steam now.

There are some awesome bonus car cheats, easy money cheats and some good old GT5 car talk in general.

Check out the forum here!

If you think there is a section missing then please leave a suggestion in the comments box below.

I was thinking of adding a car trading forum? A place where we can swap cars since we can do this in the game itself?

Anything else you can think of?


German Racing Car Bug

Tuesday, December 14th, 2010

When is 300hp not 300hp? In the A Spec Expert Schwarzwald league of course!

You need to be able access the Expert level in A-Spec mode, so a minimum level of 15, not too difficult. Its a German only race which allows German cars with a maximum of 300hp. I just entered it with my worked 600bhp C63 AMG beast.

You can pretty much enter any German car! Joel Kesseboom from the GT5 cheats forum was the person who told me about this. You can check out the thread here. He entered the race with an Audi R8 and others have entered with a Mercedes SLS Stealth car and just destroyed.

Super easy to win and a great way to make a cool 25k without breaking a sweat. So grab your favourite German car, work it up (or not) and make some easy money winning races and trying out your overpowered machine.

What ridiculous car have you entered?


Turbo Series Quick Money – 36k in under 4 Minutes!

Friday, December 10th, 2010

You will need level 17 for this one. Its pretty straight forward and not unlike the other fast money approaches.

Access the Turbo Challenge in the extreme series and enter a decent car. The video below shows a worked GTR which if your at level 17 already, shouldn’t be an issue to get and modify. A decent driver could manage a lap in the low 1 minute somewhere. Its a 3 lap race which nets you 36k. So effectively by doing 3 turbo races in about 10 or so minutes you could have another 100k to spend on your next car. Not a bad way to vary the way you have money.

Check the video out below:


B-Spec Advice Anyone?

Wednesday, December 8th, 2010

Some people have complained about B-spec… its boring.. why would you want to watch cars instead of racing them… and so on.

Yes you could say that its justified to wonder what the point of it actually is. But isn’t it just another way to make easy money? What stops us from using the 17k in 2 minutes or maybe the Hot hatch bug and using them on the B-spec mode?

With some of these methods you could get Miss Daisy to earn you some cash while you do nothing more than watch TV, go to the bathroom or (can’t believe I’m saying this), actually sit and watch your protege driver do laps while you make some cash?

Wouldn’t life be good if you had a gumby to just do your work while you reap the benefits!

What are you B-Spec methods? Whats cars do you use and what races do you run in order to get the most out of it? Throw your comments this way as we’d love to hear them.


Fast Money GT5 – Level 22 and 83k in 5mins

Monday, December 6th, 2010

You must be already on level 22 to be able to make use of this fast money trick.

There is a load of money to be made when you reach this level. One example would be to race in the Extreme Series using a quick car.

Just 5 laps around the Rome circuit will net you 83k hard cash in your GT5 bank (assuming you win the race!).

So that’s well over 150k in about 10 minutes… actually with loading times as they are, maybe 20 minutes! But hey we also have a cheat for loading times! Check that out here.
