OMGHi2U The Official Spring Gran Turismo Tournament

Well after a March Gran Turismo Challenge put on by MattDell, he has decided to put with Studies first instead of Continuing the fun at least through April. HA HA So Thats were I come in. I have put together another Challenge and for the most part will keep the rules and what not the same as last month. The plan is to do a tournament style challenge, I will at least have a handful of challenges. Below I have copied and pasted the rules and regulations the MattDell put together for the previous challenge.

Overview of Rules
Many of this stuff is repeated from above, but go ahead and read this for all the fine details. Sorry for the rigid structure, but I just want to make sure everyone is clear! Above all, I just want people to have fun with this.

Note that these rules will most likely change around this first month. Be sure to check the edit time of this first post to see if I've updated it!

The Challenges
I have decided to starts the challenges on a friday and end on a friday to make it a little easier to remember what the deadline is to submit a time, so the deadline for your submission comes at every friday by midnight EST.
I will ideally try to keep lap times under 2 minutes, however I can't guarantee this. I will also try my best to keep the challenges both interesting and challenging. No one wants to be driving a Triumph Spitfire down the back straight of Circuit de la Sarthe II, do they?
I will try to get the challenges up at a reasonable time, but don't expect things to be updated at exactly 12:00AM EST for each challenge.
THIS WILL BE A 10 CHALLENGE TOURNAMENT
You will notice that on the day the current challenge ends and new one has already began, I will try it this way just so that every things ends on the same day, so I will try and have each new challenge up on Friday evenings.

Submission
I cannot read this thread to find everyone's best time. Therefore, I'm requesting that everyone PM me their best time for each week's challenge. Simply send me a PM with your screenname, screen shot and time, and then an example of the PM subject would be "challenge #1 time.
You may only submit one time per week, so make sure that the time you send me is your fastest! After you submit a time, you cannot submit another. Sorry to be a hardass, but it will make things run smoother on my end.
To submit a time, you must send me a screenshot of your time! I feel the majority of people have either a digital camera or camera phone, so this shouldn't be a problem. If it is, I'll reconsider. In your photo, please make an attempt to somehow show the car in either third person or in text. Obviously I'll be lenient here, but this is ideally what you should send me.
Also to make things easier, please use this format when you PM
Quote:
Subject: Challenge #1 time for [username]
Message:
[Your time]
Attach a screen shot!

Scoring
After each round I will compile everyone's submitted time. From there, I will determine everyone's position for that challenge.
Points system as follows:
1st place: 15 points
2nd place: 12 points
3rd place: 10 points
4th place: 8 points
5th place: 6 points
6th place: 5 points
7th place: 4 points
8th place: 3 points
9th place: 2 points
10th place: 1 point
Lower than 10th place: 0 points
After each week, the points will be added up so you can see who's leading whom. At the end of the tournament, the points will be tallied for the final results.
Unless there is a crazy number of participants, I think this scoring system should work quite well for this application. If not, I might consider revising it.

Miscellany
The game version is Gran Turismo 4.
You should use simulation mode, not arcade mode.
Above anything else, please do not cheat. Cheating consists of cutting corners, taking more than two wheels off the track, modifying your car when the rules do not permit, etc. Just don't do it. The only thing I can confirm with a photo is that you used the specified car on the specified track to get your submitted time. Therefore, this makes it a partial honor system and I hope everyone can respect that. Again, this is for fun so there shouldn't be any reason to cheat!
I'm extremely open to suggestions for challenges, rules, or whatever! Either post it up in the thread or PM me. I'm always open to new ideas!
Even though you can only submit one time to me, you are extremely encouraged to post up your current best time in this thread and trash talk amongst yourselves! It will definitely make things more fun!
I will try not to pick extremely difficult cars to source, but occasionally you may be required to purchase an expensive car or acquire a prize car. It's just the nature of the beast, so be prepared! If you need extra cash, I highly suggest running the Fuji 1000km endurance event with an F1 car. It only takes a few hours and you get around 1,500,000 credits after prize money and after.

Ok I think that should cover it if i have forgotten anything please let me know. I will post the current challenge below is red so everyone is on the same page, if I end up changes anything i will highlight it in red, so hopefully I have covered everything. Have Fun!!!

All other modifications legal so go nuts with any suspsension, brake, weight reduction, you may choose any tire compound and of course driver aids are your choice. SO stock HP a must and everything else is up to you.
I'm in. Just to be 100% clear..are we allowed to add a wing and tune downforce?

I'm assuming you can do anything as long as the HP stays the same.

Unless you allow full modifications people will cheat like they did in matt's challenge.

I disagree - these challenges that use an 'honor system' seem to work great.

For the record I never cheated in Matt's challenge. Not once. I never even won a weekly challenge. You did win one weekly challenge. So if anything you're pointing the finger at yourself. If I was going to cheat, why would I do it to come in 2nd or 5th or 7th? These challenges are relaxing and fun. If I come in DFL I wouldn't give a crap.

So what kinda times are people turning?

I have stock 404hp (after oil change), full suspension, aero, brakes, R5 tires and an lsd upgrade and I'm turning times in the 1'26.xxx range.

Yeah you are allowed to change anything you want EXCEPT for anything that will increase horsepower. You can add a wing adjust downforce, change any transmission, suspension and brake components.

128:382 is the best I can muster with an oil change. Hp ratings seem to vary on the stock power depending on if you're buying parts or looking at it in the garage. I'll be lucky to shave a couple morth tenths off of that, but I am being lazy and using a slushbox !

How do I send screenshots without attachment posting priveleges ? At what point do I get to, anyway ? Do I have to have 1000 posts, be a member for 2 years or what ? I can't find that info on the site, and yes I searched !

Default 1:30 toasty

Just saw this and said what the heck. little to no tuning of suspension/trans/weight balance, etc. Just a hair over 1:30 and I have had a couple

Gonna give it a real try tomorrow.


Lets do something crazy next, like use a subaru of your choice on a particular track, with unlimited mods.

It seems all I do with this game as of late, is run the RING with a subie tuned as close to my own personal ride as possible over and over. Does that make me crazy? I know this would really skew the paying field, but it is a game afterall. Doing the real thing is much better.

I snapped a pic of a 1:28.468.....clearly I have work left to do. I've already done a lot of work to improve the front end grip....the car still doesn't turn as easily as I'd like it to. I think I need to soften the rear LSD on accel.
