Formula Gran Turismo championship - A-Spec Extreme Series race m
This is an incredibly difficult championship to win. I've found that using the following set up will help making driving the very tempermental Formula GT car easier.
Requirements; Level 24, 6 million credits. 2.5 to 3 hours of continual game time. There are no saves in the championship!!
First off, to enter this race you need to be the Formula Gran Turismo race car. This car costs 4.9million credits. It can be found occasionally in the Used Car Dealership, or if you have installed Update version 1.05, in the online used dealership.
What you'll need to do once you've bought the Formula GT is to go to GT Auto - replace the oil. Then go across to the Engine Rebuild. This costs 500,000 credits. Do that. Then go across to the Chassis refresher. This costs 500,000 credits as well.
Now go to the Tuning Shop and buy racing soft tyres.
Now enter the championship and before you race, go into tuning, and maximise the downforce, increase the top speed by 20 KPH. This gives you a slight advantage on the straight at Fuji and helps avoid using lower gears in slower corners.
Then turn every single driving aid ON. ABS set to 5, Traction Control set to 7. Keep the Driving Line ON.
Now, first corners of each race, try & kamikazee into the lead. Just do a bit of smashing & bashing. Once your in the lead, try to hug the Driving Line as best as you can and [/u]block[/u] any cars trying to go past. But be careful, if you focus too much on blocking, you'll slow down too much & get overtaken anyway.
