This is part 1 of 15 in my B-spec the FGT series tune. (In order to get this car you must first win the Nürburgring 24 hours Endurance event in the Endurance Hall - see my setup for the Opel Calibra - http://www.gtvault.com/gt4/setup-view/s_sid::7715/Opel-Calibra-Touring-Car/)
The first round is Tokyo 246 - 60 laps.
I did a 1'13.560 in practice to put the car on pole position - but B-spec can do low 1'19.XXX's and it has done a 1'18.190 in the race.
OK, this tune gets B-spec to run 10 lap stints, rather than 9 the other AI do. The car has almost perfect even tire wear between front and rear.
The best way to run the race is to:
Start B-spec on speed 3 (it can be from 6th place, but 1st is better) until the first pitstop (which should be a lap after the AI -10) and change tires but DO NOT refuel. This is an option in the menu as you come into the pits. Once B-spec is back on the track, put him onto speed 4 after 2 laps, until the next pitstop (lap 20). At this pitstop, only refuel the car to 37-40 litres (whatever unit it is) and leave B-spec on speed 4. Repeat for the rest of the race, and not only should your B-spec driver be winning the race on outright pace, it should be fastest on pitstop time, and it has to do 1 less pitstop than the AI, meaning that it is almost guaranteed to win!! The key to this strategy is the fuel management, as it allows B-spec to go faster, AND to preserve fuel and tires, allowing it to push harder. The results of my test with this tune (starting from 6th):
(ME) ......1st..........1:23'25.565
(AI).......2nd ...........+1'06.473
As I said, almost guaranteed to win at Tokyo R246. I am not sure if I mentioned this, each race is worth 100,000 credits, the championship 3,000,000 credits, and to get this car in the Nürburgring 24 hours you also win 1,200,000 credits. Total: 5,700,000 credits, an F1 car, and a Sauber C9 race car!!

Enjoy,

The following are the various Races I believed there was more time to come out of, and decided to go back and re-tune them. However I am leaving the originals in as this is all part of a process as I learned about the car and B-spec.

Just in case you aren't sure that your B-spec is up to the job of cutting through the pack from sixth place on the grid, to win in style, you can always qualify for each race in the series. When on the race menu screen, choose practice mode, which is actually qualifying, and is the same in all race series. If you set the fastest time here, you will start from first place.
