    I don't need the 2J back mate, I dupe'd it already when I sent it, so still have my original. Feel free to keep it or pass it on to someone else. Feel free to send over the formula 1 jobbie that you have, will be good to have that to try them races. Or if not, the Enzo might be nice.

    I will send the Zonda back tonight for you. I should be on this evening (if not to play I will still definitely log on to send the Zonda back). Need to tweak some things on my bike and then get on GT5 for a blast while the mrs is out. That Zonda is a feisty one though isn't it! I took all driving aids off and was allover the shop ha! Gave it a little tweak and it improved a little bit.

    I have a fair few of the seasonal events to do this evening, as they run out this evening...gutted! I also see that they're going to be updated weekly now too though, wahoo!

    S3RYE - any chance of sending on the 2J? I'm just buying as many different cheap UCD cars as I can at the moment so haven't had anything new that's decent for a while..

    That is so full of win, I shall have to do the same with my 360, the only bugger is changing the optical cable over for the sound.

    The historic cup can be done in both A & B spec with a Toyota 7, with a mid turbo, b-spec requires a bit of luck (2J needs to start below 7th) but A spec is easy enough..

    It definitely can and has.. The monte carlo one does take a fair few tries in b-spec, i made the mistake of restarting if my driver wasn't right near the front by the first lap, then decided to let him race and he didn't get 1st until about lap 5, if i get time later i'll post the tune i used

    IIRC 26,21,17&17 i could be quite wrong though :notme: dont really check them as i porgress, but if trying a new B spec driver is the next suggestion dont worry that was tried at them time...

    As has been said Cote d'Azur has been tried in excess of 20 times with different set ups and drivers and the driver has been allowed to go to the end! Just not playing so why not try the 2J...

    I didn't say not to try the 2J, i was just saying that if you had the 7 race car in your garage, it can be done. Partly i guess I'm jealous that I haven't got use of a 2J!

    Also S3RYE - I think mine was lvl30/31 at the time, so you might have to train them up a bit.. Can't believe this challenge is so early in the game!

    This can be done with the toyota 7. I did it on the 2nd try, the 1st go I just left the driver to it and he came 4th but on the second go I babysat him and he got 1st. You really have to pick the right moment to tell him to overtake and don't let him get too hot or else he will crash at the chicane and the last corner if he does. It was a few weeks ago when i did it but i think i set the gearing to 170ish, downforce to full and i used the stage 3 turbo but the stage 2 is better for this race. If you can get the 2j use that, im now at 32 B-Spec and **** me it gets bad i have had to repeat each endurance race at least 4 times to get to the next level to open up the next race. At least i don't have to watch him though.

    Nope, for some reason they are allowing RM'd cars in this time, the vette one is a piece of pish to do, and the RM cappuccino is a pretty good laugh!

    Yeah I do the oval race in the dream car championship I didn't think of doing the whole thing though I shall give it a try. If you haven't done the suzuka endurance race yet then when you do make sure you give yourself enough time incase you want to play yourself. As more often than not it rains in that race and 1 time it took 7 1/2 hours for my driver to finish it I think it was raining all the way through this was in the fgt aswell. If it stays dry it's about 5 hrs but do it once to get the trophy and don't go back to it! :laugh:
