Tuned at Laguna Seca for Driving Force Pro.

On R3 / R3 tires,........ 1' 28.211,............. 11/12/05
On S3 / S3 tires,........ 1' 33.822,

No LSD on such a low hp car. I've found that LSD on MR car upsets the suspension upon input changes and doesn't allow the car to "settle in" to the corner as well. I can get back to the gas mid corner and off much ealier without the LSD. Give it a whirl with your other cars and see if I'm not lying!

I tuned this car to use in the "4 Hour at Nurburgring" Endurance Event. After peeking to check the horsepower ratings of the other cars in this event,( 270 to 350 hp ), I tuned this Lotus to make the 4 hour event a fair and challenging. Yet to be seen? This setup is good for about a 8 min loop on S3 / S3 tires, trans autoset at 10.

4 Hour Endurance at Nurburgring Nordschleife

Car: Lotus Elise 111s '03 (check my setups for settings)

11/10/05 Gave it a whirl,........ 212 hp will not cut it in this race. Changed to Racing Muffler and Stage 2 N/A Tune to get to 246 hp. Gonna go retune to soften the settings and give it a go again. Keep reseting the race until you get the line up with the ASL Garaiya. It's the car to beat here!!!

11/12/05 I'm back, retuned and ready to go,............ all I did was soften the damping a bit and voula! Ran the 'Ring at 7' 38.042 on S3 / S3 tires, Auto set trans at 11 and with a ton more control at the top end.

11/13/05 Update again,.......... Detuned to 234 hp to make it more fair,by loosing the engine chip and going down to a sport muffler. 246 hp made it too easy. Now the ASL Garaiya is much faster in the straights but with carful driving I can catch him in the corners. Good racing that way!!!

11/18/05 Had to drop the HP again. I'm down to 220 hp and going to try it again. The ASL Garaiya is still the class of the of the other cars,..... but if it tries to stretch it's first pitstop to after 7 laps it falls way off the pace, and you have him beat by 3:50.xxx after the next lap. So, in the interest of a good race that I won't doze behind the wheel on, I'm detuning again and starting over. Remember back on 11/10 I started at 212 hp and didn't think that enough,.......... We'll see?

11/22/05 Ok, I finally got this thing done,........ and it was the best race I've ever done in any of the GT Series games,..period, dot!!!

After 3 hours of swapping the lead with the ASL Garaiya in between pitstops, my car was beginning to fade. I found that I was down from 220 hp to 205 hp by the end of the race and my straightaway speeds were down from 150 mph to 135 mph and I was loosing ground to the lead car fast,........... After nearly four hours.... I'm gonna loose this thing.

I've been pitting every three laps on S3/S3 tires and holding my own. At 24 laps I switch to S2/S2 tires and stretch a pit cycle to six laps to match the ASL, but the tires go away at 29 laps and I have to pit at 17 seconds back. After the pit and back to S3/S3 tires, I'm 43 seconds in the rear and pretty much conceeding the race at this point. I get going again only to figure that if I push very hard I can try to push the race an extra lap by getting to the start/finish line before the 4:00.00 mark and maybe catch him comming out of the pits on fresh tires and make up the rest,............ maybe,.... I keep pushing.

The ASL passes the S/F line at 3:59:45.XXX and forces the 31st lap,......... and get this..... he didn't pit after six laps for the first time in the race,....... He pushes the seventh lap on worn tires and falls way off the pace. I catch him at "Miss Hit Miss" and take the lead with half a lap to go. I won by about 30 seconds,........ Great Race!!!!

Here are the Numbers:
Total time: 4:07'41.508
Total laps: 31
Total miles: 399.59
Fastest lap: 7'44.767
Pit every: 3 laps, S3/S3 tires
Horse Power: 220, '03 Lotus Elise 111s

I put front S2 and rear S1 on.
I found the car handles great.
I put the HP at 175 and won Spider and Roadster, Elise Trophy, and Clubman Cup.
I also tested this setup at various HP settings and found it works great.
I ran a 2:06.1xx at Grand Valley with 219HP.

Its nice to see someone who actually races the setups posted in tire wear mode.
I will look forward to other setups by you.
Thanks

Just run this one at 220bhp. Close racing is not the way I would describe this race. ON THE EDGE OF YOUR SEAT STUFF is more like it. Beat the ASL by 7.463 seconds. I took the ring a little bit on the easy side, found I was off the pace, but caught the ASL at Brunnchen thanks to that 31st lap. Brilliant Setup

Happy to hear you enjoyed the setup,.......... as well as the close racing. I have a hard time looping tracks for hours while being so far ahead. Perfect the way you did it,.......... catching up slowly on technique and pit strategy with a lower Hp car.......... Well done, Brian
