Welcome to the (un)official GRM Time Trial Series!

This series will be run as a hot lap event in arcade mode and will consist of one car on one track per event. Each event will be open for 2 weeks, and submissions should be posted in this thread via screenshot of your time. Being as we are running in arcade mode it's on the individual to ensure their car is compliant with the tuning, PP, and tire limits for the event. We're on the honor system here and since there isn't anything on the line I doubt there would be intentional cheating, but be mindful that an already owned car may be tuned beyond the series specs.


  • The event will be run in Arcade Mode > Single Player > Time Trial
  • Rankings will be done based on the fastest posted flying lap
  • Only clean laps count. The racing surface is defined as the area between and including the white lines, and the curbing. Two tires must remain on the racing surface or vertically above to count as clean. If track contact cannot be 100% determined, consider it dirty. Rumble strips count as part of the track.
  • No contact with barriers or objects is allowed.
  • No driving aids except ABS are allowed.
  • Nothing that goes against the spirit of the rules

Event 5:

  • Car: Honda NSX Type S Zero '99
  • PP: 461
  • Power: 298
  • Weight: 1270
  • Tires: Sport Medium
  • Track: Tokyo R246 (Forward)

Only an oil change, move to Sport Medium tires, and brake bias adjustment is allowed.

Part throttle is where its at and no braking while turning. Still a handful.

Remember, SM tires! SH are stock, and the tires are worth at least 3 seconds on their own.

For driving, delicacy is the key. Being too aggressive with the controls will upset the car. Failboat is right, partial throttle is very important to keeping the car settled mid turn, especially the sweepers.
