Go to Jap Grand Champ and win all races and get the motul pitwork z it is a great car to win most of the races in the game just have to fully tune it first.

Hmm Nice Car (s)

Ok heres a good hint that will earn you about 200,000+.

And no, it's not the capri rally. Well it does have to do something with it. If you have a cadilac cien or a really fast car use it in the capri rally at least 1-2 times. Itll take about 10 minutes.

Then sell the two Toyota RSC Rally Raid Car that you get and buy a Mercedes SC65 AMG (R230) '04. Tune it till 999 hp. If it doesnt get there (if you tuned it completely) give it an oil change before racing. Buy the car in any color you would like.

Then go to the European Events and compete in the Pan Euro Championship. Play it in B-Spec the whole time. Make sure it's in 3X the speed. If you wiin you'll get about the 10,000 or 12,000 prize money and the 45,000 credits for winning the whole championship. After that you'll win a Jaguar XJ220 LM Race Car '01.

Tune it until 950 hp. (if you tuned it completly, again, give it an oil change) After that go into the Endurance Events (if you have completed the game 25%). NOTE: AFTER I WON THE JAGUAR XJ220 LM RACE CAR '02, I WON THE CAR THAT YOU WIN WHEN YOU COMPLETE THE GAME 25%. Then compete in the Tokyo R246 (i think).

Make sure the jaguar has super hard tires (R1). It'll take about 30-35 minutes. NOTE: THIS ONLY WORKS IN B-SPEC MODE IN 3X THE SPEED. You'll win a 250,000 credits cash prize and a Mitsubishi FTO Super Touring Car '97 (i think). Hope that helps!

A Little Help in the Very Beginning

If you are not able to transfer the 100,000 credits and your licences, go to Simulation Mode, go to your Home, then Garage. In Garage, press START. You should be able to transfer the credits if you have GT3 saved on to that memory card. After you get the credits, you should have 110,000 credits and however many licences you had in GT3. Go to the Used Car Showroom, look for a '98 or '99 Nissan Skyline (R-34), most likely Blue. But it and tune it up. Do the first 2 Special Condition Events to get yourself a Cadillac Cien '02. I currently have my Cadillac Cien at 1023bhp. If you cannot do what was said above, a good car to buy is an early 90's Lancer Evo. If you ever feel bored of playing or have to go take a whiz, you can play in B-Spec mode, which I find helps SO MUCH.

Hope this helps you! :D

Nice way

Here's a good start. Do at least the b and a licenses without buying a car. Tune the pontiac just a little bit. Well as you want. After that go to the sunday cup and compete ten times. It's going to take a lot of time but it's worth it. You'll get a 600 credits prize money for every race. I had 0 cr. And when I was finished, I had about 33,500 credits. Then go to your garage and sell your 10 autobianchis. I think you should have about 114,000 credits after you sell them.

Later go to the dodge dealer and go to classics. Buy the viper and tune it but don't get it dirt tires. Well not yet. Then go to the special condition events hall and go to Capri Rally Easy. Do it about three (3) times. Then sell your rally cars or keep them and you should have over 300,000 credits. I have about 1,009,000 credits. It's not a fast way to get money but you'll have a fair truckload what of credits. And heres a hint, if you have two memory cards (IF you want only) pass the saved game file to the other one. So if you waste all of your credits or your game save gets ruined, you'll have a back-up one. Thats what I did and I have alot of things in one memory card and in the other one I still have my 1,009,000 mil. Of credits. Also, with the money or credits, tune your viper or buy any other car so you can then compete in the Rally D' Umbria and win in first place. You'll get a Cadillac CIEN '02 hope that helps.

Suspension tuning

Here is a simple way to improve you ride.
First you have to buy at least the Semi-Racing suspension kit

Lower the ride height as low as you can
Increase the Spring Rate to max
Increase shocks to 1 or 2 below max
Set front camber between 3 and 4 (I usually use 3.5)
Set rear camber at about 1.0
Now to costom tune!
If the car bounces, Raise the ride height and increase the shocks
If it is hard to apply the brakes, lessen the front camber.

I used this on real cars so I know it works!
05 Mustang GT that won the American GT Championship
This won't work on race cars because they probably have been custom tuned already.

Old school car that handles like a dream...

Get the Chevy Corvette convertable (C1) '54. You can only win it in the american championship, wich is in the amreican races, just in case you are too dumb to figure that out.

This car has kick ass handelling, even with sport tires. When tuned to the nuts, it has ok speed and accelaration. It is the best car you can use for those historic races for old cars.

A few tips

When starting the game, do the Gran Turismo 3 trick (if you dont it wont work) then buy a nissan skyline as your first car. Gain a bit of money in the beginner races, then soup it up. Mine has 670 HP and is my second best car (my best is my 907 HP cadillac cien 02) and give the nissan dirt and snow tires. If your a good driver, you should be able to clear all the special condition races with the nissan alone.

Nurumbring 24 hr. Race.

I've just completed this race and have found that if you use, get this....the Suzuki Escudo Dirt Trials Car w/ super-hard tires and (in B-Spec) set your speed on Slow Down (1) and Overtake. I ended up over 10 laps ahead of the Audi TT Touring Car. I now have my Polyphony Formula Gran Turismo or whatever it is. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!

Number of cars you can have

You can probably have 400 cars in your garage, I currently have 320, just in case anyone was wondering.

Different paint jobs

In case any one is wondering, when you win a car the game gives it to you with a certain paint job but if you do that same series of races again you will win that same car but sometimes with a different paint job. For instance I have a black and yellow polyphony formula gran turismo but I also have it with a castrol white green and red paint job and there are a few other colors you can get it in. Other cars that you can get this with are:
Mazda rx7 LM race car
Mitsubishi fto super touring race car
Mercedes 300 sl coupe
There are a few more I think and I know there are at least 5 paint jobs for the fto.

GT3 Trick in GT4

There are two cars that I know the settings to to make them do the wheelie, the Toyota GT 1 and the Suzuki Escudo Dirt Trial Car

GT 1:
Level 4 turbo, qualifying tyres, nitrous, minimum spring rate back, maximum front, minimum ride height back, maximum front, rear dampers 8, front 10, no camber front or back, no toe front or back, rear stabilizer 6, front 7


Auto setup 25,
Final drive 3.000
And all other gears standard

All driving aids at zero, minimum downforce front, maximum rear, nitrous all the way to the right,
Try it with the nitrous

For the escudo do the same but with the gears use these settings,

Auto 25,
Final 2.000
And all other gears to the left

So basciaclly just change the final to 2.000 and you have to do the auto first just like before.

More hp

If you have new cars, with 0.0 miles or Km, go and change the oil before anything. This will increase "hp". Try it out. Chek the "hp" before and then after the oil change.

Keep speed from turns

To get max. Speed from turns, slow down a lot going into them and accel. Early. This is a very useful skill to master because you'll then have some extra mph coming out of a turn to help you pass the competition

Added 29 Jun 2006, ID #21842, by cien02roks

This is a lot easier

A much simpler and less costworthy way to do what sniper spy is saying is just use a normal car and beat the first two special condition races. The first will get you a car w/ 760 hp not 720. Its the cadillac cien 02. The next race earns you a rally car which you can use to beat some of the other special condition races for more cars and then you can sell it once you get a better rally car for over 250,000 cr. I wasnt a member of this site when I did this and was 1.8% of the way through the game and had some cheesey nisan that had only a few xtras staked on.

Added 25 Jun 2006, ID #21759, by cien02roks

Easy start

First, transfer the max amount of credits, then buy the FPV Gt in Australia's FPV Motors. Soup it up with all the left over money and then race the first event in the Special Condition Events. This may seem impossible to win but I did it and got a car with 720 hp.

Added 23 Jun 2006, ID #21725, by SniperSpy

Great Start!!!

If you have previously played Gran Turismo 3, you can upload up to 100,000 credits from your save file to your new Gran Turismo 4 file. If you do this, the best car to buy to get you started is in the late 90's used car garage. It is a pearl black Nissan Skyline GT R34, which has 276bhp, and is a great car to tune. This will cost around 36,000 credits, and you can use the rest of the credits to tune it.

Alternatively, you could buy, from the same garage, a Toyota Celica GT Four, which is also a great car, which is 4WD, and will only cost around 16,000 credits

Good Way To Start

Once you've gotten a relatively good car (mine was Mazda RX-7 w/ 350 or so horsepower) go into the special condition races and complete the first two. The first one will get a Cadillac Cien 02 with 720 hp and the second will get you a rally car you can use and get some cars to sell and you can the rally car for over $250,000
