Lupo 'ring times on GT5

Recommended Posts

I've never seen a normal Gti for sale. :( If anyone could gift me one that would be great! NDF078.

Still on the hunt, going to have a look for one now!

I managed it in 8.31 last night and seeing as that's not the slowest I'll post it.

Lupo GTI 01, quite a few upgrades including upto 150mph on the gear ratios, medium slicks, controller, dog getting in the way...

I did stop for a flask of tea and a scone just before the long straight though.

:rolleyes:

For anyone who wants a Lupo Gti non cup, you can get one by winning the Lupo Gti cup race in B-spec. :)

That can only turn badly!! Every time I'm on with the e38 lads it gets rather messy, especially when the events go sideways, which usually occurs within 10 mins of the night! It's like come on lads, in position on the track for 30 seconds, quick sprint to the end, right......that was fun.....so then, drifting??

I disagree, had a few online races with just Lupo's. Racing was really close, and enjoyable.

The only races which are rubbish are the ones with unlimited performance specs, as the performance of the cars vary so much. Or when people insist on just smashing you off when your ahead.

I'm up for a race though. :)

RE this thread: Got down to 7.19.6, with a couple of errors.

Ive never played the online yet, only really just got my lupo. So we're racing then :P ?

Agreed, also need to set a pointy limit thing. Performance points? So that my standard lupo doesnt get thrashed by a massive turbo :P

Nah I dont want to ruin it :P Im being a scared-e-cat about the whole thing.

7:19 is rapid! Thats quicker than a GTR can do it in real life.

Accept my friend request, and I'll send you over another GTI to use instead?! :rolleyes:

Just checked it was 7:19.769, pretty quick indeed.

AH cool, i'll be on later tonight.

I have a raven blue one and im trying to fiddle with the suspension untill I think it's correct.

I'll borrow a modified one for a race though, then flick it back to you afterwards. Im not that far on considering Ive had it since christmas.

I think a time in the high 7.20's is doable but 7.19 is not possible with a controller - take it this was with either a G25 or a GT wheel?

Nice time crash! But no, I only use a DS3 controller! :D

Any more people up for a ClubLupo race, other than Sam and me??
