Offical GT4 Thread:

For those who have it (or soon will) whats your first car? and what you doing with it?

I got 100k from my gt3 game and now have a 05 GT Supercharged 550hp currently with almost all the goodies. Just threw a bigger sway bar on the front and tuned the camber a bit nothing else yet need to start tweaking it so it turns in quicker.

I bought the GT, Only thing I need to have it "fully modded" is NA Tune 3, and Supercharger w/Intercooler, oh yeah and tires, oh yeah and Roll Cage, oh yeah and Weight Reduction 1,2, and 3. Okay so I guess I need alot more then I thought I did.
I'm still working out the kinks, the car understeers like a mofo!
To the people who have it, What are your Driving Aids set at? I had mine set at all 0, but it turned like ass. TCS should be set at 0 or at least 1, imo.
Did you guys see the "riced out" wings they have?

I got TCS @ 1 but have stock tires about to upgrade and probably leave it there. ASM I have turned off it screws up how the car handles so bad.

As far as the rest of the suspension I upped both the sway bars larger bar in the front, lowered it a bit, and upped the spring rates. Still needs to be tweaked but inital turn in is a bit better now.

cool, where are you doing your testing?
and isn't the nurburing (sp?) in this game?
One thing i'm glad they added, is how the cars sound now, when you upgrade them.

So where did you all get this at? Was this a pre-order? I called best buy and they said they won't have them until tomorrow. I was tempted to go to target and wally world to see if they had any copies. Typically the stores won't get them until a day after the release date as that's typically when the are shipped or am I missing something?

Yah your right. I'm hoping with a good tune they will turn in alot nice thou its hard to hit the apex with it now IMO kinda dull. Maybe just some practice will help too I guess.

i bought the buick special... pimp as hell...809 hp... 9?? torque... handles like shit

haha it's alright... but i'm still on stock tires then we'll see

if i didn't want to beat brian (labora) then i would just start from normal with POS cars... more fun... but oh well... if tires and a little suspension tweaking doesn't work... i'm starting over and picking a car that handles better... skyline perhaps...

i did win a hemi road runner (i think thats the name of the car)

i was only able to transfer over 32k i guess i must have started over in the past on GT3so i picked up the '90 Supra Twin Turbo 2.5GT 331hp with just intercooler, exhaust and chip.

BTW did everyone remeber that if you do an oil change as soon as you buy the car your HP will go up and its a one time only thing if you forget you dont get the extra HP

you just need to tune the suspension some more. RX7s are great handling cars in real life i dont see why they wouldnt be in this game too

I'll look to see what race it was from but it was pretty easy, Two Races, Two Laps Each, but the track is very narrow.

Yep easy one to win.

If your start to tune your Mustang GT biggest help so far I've done was adding some postive toe in the rear. Still tweaking it thou needs to grip mid turn better..

I did the '03 Lightning, needed the Stg3 NA Tune (no supercharger/IC mods though) and it woulda been maxxed out at 688hp. At the Stg2 tune, it's at 597. With a 50hp pill, it only clicked off a 12.5 in the 1/4. But it's still running the S2 tires. I did the stg1 weight reduction, racing flywheel, 2plate clutch disc, racing exhaust, fully customizable suspension, and I think that's it. Oh yea, oil change. It is fun on the track though. I think I am going to start over, though, and get a cheap used ricer, and go from there. I tried the GNX, it handled far worse than the L did.

Crap, looks like I am going to have to rob the 'car parts fund' to buy a PS2 and get this game. I really thought the release date would get pushed back again.

things I'd like to know:

are the gear settings a little more user friendly than the last one?

can you put power adders on most of the cars that don't already come with them?

can you stroke/bore or whatever they call call it? (its been a while)

and most importantly, why in the hell are you guys modding the shit out of your cars and running stock tires? I don't get it

No, you can't "displacement up" all the vehicles. But you can supercharge/turbocharge a bit easier now. And as far as the tire situation goes, the ones that come on the car are decent tires. Much better than the other GT games. It takes almost a full lap before mine are hot enough to actually stick. And I'm using a 500hp Evo V. Once they go green, I've gone 5-6 laps on the same set, and not had a problem with them over heating. That first lap is a bit tricky, though. You better know how to drift

Oh, and another answer to the "stock" tires thing. Some of the beginner races only allow you to race with the N1-N3 and S1-S3 tires. From the showroom floor, your car comes with S2 tires. There's only one tire better than that, and it's better to save up for the racing slicks that you'll need later in the game.

I feel I didn't explain very well the first time

Man this sucks I wasted some coin on a Super 7 and it's considered a "special" car and I can't use it in the races wtf? I guess maybe it has to do with the fact it only weighs like 750ish lbs but still!
