Grab your Hudson put CS tires on it and head to the Nurburgring. the car is completely stock except for the tires. I had trouble with the brakes as even with the front set to 1 they would lock with just the lightest touch on the pedals. Could be a glitch I guess.

9:51.445

This was my first lap attempt. No aids.

I have a hard time setting aside time for the group races, but i'm suddenly tempted to upgrade to GT6...

dont upgrade for this car alone it sucks ass.

edit 1: serious question: nicksta i see this car has fully customizable suspension and transmisson as stock......can we tune these? I only ask because you mentioned adjusting brake balance. imma go hit the track right now though without adjusting anything.

edit 2: my 1st "clean" lap was a 10:04, including a nice 90 degree spin putting me nose first pointed at a wall, had to reverse out of that one to get going again. Still trying, no adjustments to the car yet other than the tire change. It actually brakes pretty well but you have to just barely touch the brakes.

I didn't adjust anything besides brake balance and I only messed with that because of instant lock up which still happened unless I just hovered my foot over the pedal.

I enjoy driving poop on the Ring, but this might be pushing it.

I didnt despise it as much on the ring. :P Will try again tonight I think.

There are not many upgrades available for this pig but you can get a supercharger for it. Lets max them out and have a GRM race sometime. haha.

I turned off all the info didn't even see how fast it was going. I was surprised when I turned the lap info on that it was under ten minutes It felt slower than that.

first lap without flying off track or spinning out. 9:49.649

also of interest..it appears the car may not have the same size tires all around. the right side tires appear wider. not sure if this is just visual.

since we all love this car so much I also took a (possibly) wallpaper worthy photo (click for fullsize link)

Sweet! As soon as I find the time I'll try to revisit this.

Should we require photographic evidence?

Wow, and is that a 9:45 on your second lap? I only ran one lap and know of a couple places where I lost some time. Not sure I can get a 45 though...

If it's one thing I know well, it's the Nürburgring.
