Re: Where to start on GT4?
Ok I just done a search on the net and found the following if you guys are interested.
This section is mainly to help beginner's find some direction at the beginning
of the game. I will list a couple of different ways to get yourself started
with some decent cars and a little bit of extra cash.
*For all methods I suggest getting at least your A license and maybe the IB so
that you can familiarize yourself with the physics for this game.
These are for players who import 100,000 credits from their GT3 save
1.Go to Tuner Village-------->HPA Motorsports and buy the HPA GTI car. This
car comes with 550hp stock and can win most of the early races very easily.
2.Buy a used Evo VII GSR and upgrade it as much as possible. This car can
compete in One-Make Races, Turbo Events, 4WD Events, and any open enrollment
events. This car is also one of the best rally cars in the game.
3.Same as #2 with an Impreza WRX-STi.
4.Same as #2 with a Skyline GT-R V-spec N1 except the Skyline will be more
productive for road races than rally racing.
5.Buy and upgrade a Lotus Elise 111R. This can win the MR races, its One-Make
Race, and some of the Lightweight races.
This section is for players who start with just the 10,000 credits
1.Complete all of the license exams up to IA. You will receive the Nismo 270R
which can get through the early races pretty easily.
2.Get any decent starter car(a 200hp+ Evo will work) and go to the Special
Condition Event #1 and #2. The first one will get you the Cadillac Cien
which can win all of its races up to the end of the Pro Hall. For the second
event, you will win the Toyota RSC Rally Raid car which can be sold for
265,000 credits or used to win the majority of the rally events.
3.Get a car to win the Lightweight K-Car Cup in Beginner(a Honda Beat works
here). You will win the Ginetta G4. Use this car to win the Sunday Cup and
any other races you see fit(even up to the Clubman Cup) to save up a little
money. Upgrade it as soon as you can. Now, enter the European Classic Car
league, the European Lightweight event, and 1000! miles. This will give you
over 1,000,000 credits with 3-4% of the game complete.
- For endurance races, it is best to equip the hardest tires you can that will
still give you an advantage. Harder tires wear down a lot slower than the
softer ones. If you're in an FR car and need more traction to be able to
win, then you can equip R2/R3 tires on the front and R1 on the rear. The
rear wheels drive the car so naturally the tires wear down quicker.
- After you acquire a car from a lot go get an oil change. This will add a few
- In B-spec mode, you can speed up the race to 2X or 3X by holding L1 and
pressing right. The driver will automatically pit, and you'll have to reset
the 3X after every pit.
- You dont have to enter a race just to tweak or customize your car. All you
have to do is press "Start" on the first screen when you enter your "Home"
and the car customize screen will load.
- Watching the demo for license exams can help greatly
- Press L3 to speed up a replay
- If you have a GT3 save, you can transfer 100,000 credits to use at the
beginning of the game. You have to go to Home--------->Status and press
- Press R3 at the countdown before a license exam to display lines telling you
when to brake and accelerate(this only works on National A and B)
- The Black Race Cars: *cue scary music*
Between days 694 and 700 there are 4 black Race Cars that can be found used.
Used Car Showroom II:
Toyota GT-One Race Car '99 = 2,924,999
Nissan R390 GT1 Race Car '98 = 2,924,999
Used Car Showroom I:
Mazda 787B Race Car = 1,224,999
Nissan R92CP Race Car = 1,224,999
These cars can be found at the bottom of their respective showrooms. Since
they are used, they will naturally have less horsepower than their new
versions. But . . . . . . they're BLACK!!!!!
Remember the oil changes.
