Lupo 'ring times on GT5

Recommended Posts

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:

I was only dreaming of a Lupo GTI until James gifted me a nice reflex silver one. Shame there's a gear missing.

Whoops ass on raven, red and anthrash!te; which just goes to prove silver really is the best. :lol:

Oh! I had my first on line experience on the Top Gear track the other night. Git my as whooped by a yellow Lupo with a chav' spoiler. :blush:

...would have helped if I knew the track layout though.

You can buy one when they appear in the used car dealership mate, and then you win them in other lupo events. Think that's mentioned earlier in this thread TBH.

Come on John pull your finger out!! None of my cup cars reach 200bhp but they weigh alot less than my normal gti which is running at 206bho. Try servicing it mate.

I have a ~260bhp gti and a 200bhp cup car.

Need to set the GTi up though for the ring, LSD needs to be a bit more agressive as theres too much power there.

Going to have a go now.

No, i hit a wall in the second twisty section, and run wide on some grass in the first section on the fast left hander with adverse camber. Other than that stayed on the track

If you short cut the time goes red anyway, and if you stay off the track for too long.

Would anyone be interested in a 'ClubLupo Battle of the Lupo's' race around the nurburgring?

I think we can race up to 16 cars if there are enough people interested?

I just managed a 7:51.3 with a huge off about 5 mins in. Thought I'd try and shave a few more seconds off on the 2nd lap but promptly rolled at the first corner thanks to my overly stiff ARBs. Try again tomorrow...
