C7 corvette in gran turismo 5

Probably a repost cause I'm on my iPhone and searching on this thing sucks. I will self moderate later.

It's in the playstation store. I have downloaded it, but I haven't got much farther than that.

Still camouflaged, but I should have nurburgring times soon

EDIT: uh, yeah. This thing hauls the mail. Taking my time, and making all the turns I churned off a 7.48. And I suck at this game Can't imagine what a good driver would do.


7.44 with a wicked spin mid track. Still have time to make up!

Downloaded it so far I ran it at the Top Gear Test Track, ran a 1:19.145 good for #4 on my stock fast list at the track. Next up is the ring.

Well I suck with this car...best of 8:14.102 so far at the ring

Now 8:05.131...pathetic. Im terrible with this car.

I just downloaded the car.

Edit: just ran a 7:13 on the Nurb. Racing soft tires helps a lot.

See if chassis reinforcement helps.

Im keeping it bone stock for now. I can easily setup any car to my liking and be good. I just like the challenge of using the bone stock setup, Ill get bored with it though and then tune it up and make my own setup for it. Just the ring + sports hard was getting to me so I had to have a little fun with the racing softs

Lol yea sports tires are a pain to me. First thing I always do is switch them out.

I like driving with Sports tires, more realistic feel to it and a bit more of a challenge. Just this car and track is kicking my ass. Ill get it down pat in the next couple weeks though...I have nothing else to do anyways:bangdesk:


This is my basic "rules" I go by when Im just test driving cars

Bone Stock
Sports Hard
Manual Transmission
Traction Control Off
Skid recovery off
ASM off
ABS 1

I usually just run it with everything off with racing soft. Increase the acceleration and stuff for the realistic feel when using soft tires.

We should play sometime. I'm usually on every night.

Don't forget to change the oil. Brought mine up to 471HP and 484TQ. I'm running stock settings at 7.40 with a couple mistakes. I figure a perfect lap would net me around a 7.30. Trying hard to keep it stock. It's not easy

I'm actually hoping those are what the real numbers will be for the C7

You running on the Sport Hard tires I take it? Pretty impressive. I can't keep the dang thing on the track with the sport tires . I make it through the first 2/3 of the track fine and then it all goes to hell
