GT5: ITM'ers in a moderately priced car


How this works:
Every month a Reasonably Priced Car will be chosen to be driven on the Top Gear Test Track. Any ITM'er can then try to set a best time on it. Once the month ends we'll archive the leaderboard and start again.

What you need to enter:
- A PS3
- GT5
- Unlock the Top Gear Test Track for use in arcade mode by completing the Top Gear beginners special event in the main mode

Submitting your time:
Once you get a time you are happy with, exit and there's an option to save the replay of your best lap. Do that just incase there are any queries over your claimed time. Then post your time in this thread and we'll update the leaderboard.

Rules:
- You can submit more than 1 time in a month
- No shortcuts
- Tyres: Comfort soft
- Driving line: off
- Traction control: off
- Skid recovery force: off
- Active steering: off
- ASM: off
- Grip reduction: real
- For now we'll just stick to arcade cars to keep it nice and easy. Cars will always be stock unless specified for the month.

Just did a quick lap before bed to kick things off. It may be the only time I'm in the lead.

hardly normal have a deal on atm for 320GB PS3 + GT5 $487
that's cheaper than trying to scam a 160GB + GT5

nobody has stock of the 120GB. i figure it's being discontinued. Cheapest i found for the 160GB was DSE @ $449, or some bundle packs like jb hifi are offering for $499 with a couple of gay arse games i'll never play + hdmi cable

would've gotten some poxy amount for the tradeins & still had to fork out more for gt5. harvey deal was much better
anyway, we should stop tarting up the ITMer in a moderately priced car thread with irrelevant crud.

Good work BM, should be fun.

(I wish ITM allowed you to edit posts permanently, makes things like this so much easier to manage.)

It would be really cool if we could just host a leaderboard externally with a permalink in the OP.

If you guys wanted to use the lap board I made I don't mind updating it and sending it to whoever's hosting the picture. But I also don't mind if any of you guys want to take over - I can send you the photoshop .psd file I created for the picture and text.

Moonie - Didn't get the PM, but the hosting I set-up is being a ****. Suggest you ask Ed if you can host the image at SKOG.

1:31.892 is my best so far.

I had better times but I realised I was shaving off the first part of Hammerhead. Would be better if it was automatic disqualification for going out of bounds...

Yeah, but we didn't want to be stuck in 20HP FWDs.

[edit] Wait a minute. Are these standing start times, or are people running fiddy laps and picking the best time?

Yep. Time trial is a rolling start so it's too hard to do standing start.

I've noticed sometimes a lap time will go red. Maybe when you do something worth disqualification?

As mention the time trial is a rolling start. I tried a test to see if there was any difference between lap times in the first lap (with a rolling start) and a second lap and I was getting my best times in the first lap.

I thought I'd get more grip in the second lap with the tyres warmed up but it didn't seem to be the case.

should have a (w) behind lap times done with a wheel

be interesting to see how people compare

edit: btw, took me 2 hours to do the sambavan challenge last night (turns out being too aggressive with corner overtaking doesn't pay off).. I'll give the mini challenge a crack over the weekend, but bring on the ITM'ers in a moderately riced GTR challenge.
