Lupo 'ring times on GT5

Recommended Posts

Right, seeing as a few of us seem to have GT5 now I thought it'd be a good time to start a bragging rights thread of the fastest times around the ring with any Lupo. Terms of use...........Post up your time, the model you used, any mods you have fitted, whether you used controller or wheel and obviously some photgraphic evidence of your time and car!! That is all, now get lapping!

Iv only just got my hands on a regular GTi, gonna fully tune it and give it another go tomorrow!

Anyone else got the veyron and fully tuned it yet? Absolute mentalist but it makes the game a little bit too easy, I'm winning every race by at least 25 seconds at the min.

Might have to start another gt5 thread tomorrow..."Which cars are on your favorites list?"

I foolishly spent near enough 100k tuning my phase 2 Clio v6 instead of my gti so will still have to wait for an improved lupo time.

Lol pete! My loyalties now firmly lie with my fully tuned GTi, the Clio was a nightmare! Far too lairy (realistic). I'm almost at a point now where I don't have the money to get enough cars for some of the races in the expert series... Gonna have to start on b spec I think...

Just keep going with the special events James, you get loads of credits for golds on them! I find b spec abit boring at times but it has to be done, just make sure you get a good driver, my 1st one couldn't handle a standard evo7 for toffee!

Yeah my first driver had an absolute nightmare with the v6 clio, span out nearly every bend! I'm stuck on the special events. Most of them are really difficult. Just sold a few cars to tune up a mclaren so I can do the MR events. Shouldn't have wasted my time with the Ferrari California!

That tired me out! I think if I played, I'd be merely going round the barrier.

Just need a racing game that links to Google Street Maps!

When I got my GTI (thank you James) I took it for a spin as standard. Understeer was shocking, especially when in outside view. Better on inside\roof cam, but now I have coilies and sports tyres it's better. A lot better.

Where's the full 'ring? I can only find the short track :confused:

The handling just looks like you press left and it goes left press right and it goes right. No slight turn in etc.

You have to unlock it i believe.

The handling looks shocking.

Without doubt one of the best handling cars on the game.

Yeah have to unlock it for practice mode.

Huh?

I'm glad it goes left when you press left. Or am I reading this wrong?

Got to agree with it being one of the best handling cars in the game. You guys are so much further ahead than me though, I can only dream of Mclarens and Veyrons. :lol:
