When you buy a new car change the oil immediately. You will get a permanent, small increase in HP. And always change the oil when you buy a used car. That crap is dirty!!!

In the Pro Series, Supercar Festival run the Daytona Race. I use the McClaren Stealth with a level 3 engine upgrade and racing soft tires. I can finish first with a time of 2:12. So with loading time added in you can run this race about 15 times an hour. You get $17,300 and 700+ xp per race.

Need a truck for the truck races. Haven't found one yet. Took forever to find a japanese car to run in that beginner race. I don't like the fact you have to back out of the race menus to go and buy a car for a race if you don't have one, then the country of the car isn't listed, only a little flag, like I know who's flag that is.

Do NOT counter steer like on gt4 and gt3... Then the car go in a smooth line sideways instead of wasting time inbarriers.
PS: When taking corners and specialy on licenses! Use a logitech wheel/pedals... The you can really play with the car,nothing like gt3 and 4...

Keep checking the used car area after every race or challange you do.... thats how i found a Ford Lightning....
 
and shakers right, you cant ride the walls on this one lol, lose a crap load of speed... drifting is better on this game tho... more realistic... instead of as soon as the tires spin you wipe out, you can actually save the car now and control it if you know what your doing ;)

Check the race qualifications located on the right side of the screen. Then click on the garage symbol and you will see any cars that you have that qualify for the race.
 
I saw a Ford P/U in the used auto section last night. Keep looking or get someone to gift  a truck to you for that race.

There is a hidden trophy called "Rollover". To earn it you must flip your car. I did it by going 240mph into a barrier. Went flying up in the air and landed on my roof.

I've been trying to get the trophy for adding racing modifications to a car but I get denied with every car that I try. Has anyone done this? If so, what car did you use?

What car do I need for the historic racing car cup under expert series. AI car has 788hp and only weighs 620kg. Don't own a car to compete with that. Also the Gran Turismo All Stars, AI is running 939hp and weighs 900kg, where can I win a car to compete with that, I've done every race except those two. All the other races have been boring and these two look like they will be fun and intense but how do they expect you to run them if you don't win any cars to race in them?

I got lucky and got the Jaguar XJ13 Race Car with the ticket 1000. Its a 20 million credit car, but if you tune what you can on it the historic race is a breeze. Your recieve the ticket 1000 for driving a total of 1200 miles or Winning 100 of the same races. But the car you get from it is random. The best possible car you can use for the Gran Turismo All Stars is by winning the car from the extreme series level 21 ''like the wind''. If you get gold on both tracks, you get a 850kg 1000 horsepower (tuned) race car.
But in order to do that, the best car you can get to accomplish that (which is the cheapest out of most options yet still expensive) Is getting a Corvette ZR1 with racing modification with tune ups. Either or, its a b**** to get the job done. Just send me a friend request and ill explain more.

Beat Gran Turismo All Stars. Didn't win all 5 races, but did get 1st overall. Also got gold on both historic race events. Moving on to extreme races. I let my aimbot drive, he's the $hit.

Any tips for winning the NASCAR Championship? I seem to always fall behind and can't catch up because I have no one to draft behind.

I stopped playing, gt5 just made me realize how good forza 3 is. I love everything about it better. Every race is competitive against the AI, there's no running ahead of them and falling asleep like I've been doing in gt5. Also I like custom paint jobs on all my cars. I've also been playing forza 3 since it came out and I'm at 10% complete on career mode. Gt5 seemed to get better competitive races in the extreme series but by then I was already bored with the game. Like I said, there's no way to just build up your car and beat the tar out of the AI in forza, there's a limit to every race and you can't enter the race if your car is over that limit. All my cars in forza have custom assassins creed, gears of war 3, or several other types of paint jobs. It makes me want to watch a replay of every race just to watch my car, I've not watched any replays in gt5 because the cars all look boring with standard paint jobs. Also, I can drive every car in forza from behind the steering wheel, I love that.

Well Ace, I  think the best way to describe GT5 is like this. There are races that can be easy because of your cars specs. But You do have the Seasonal Event races that can be extremely challengeing, and the license test as well are no joke. They are some demanding races in the extreme series and expert. But the thing with GT5 is the harder you work and the more time you put into it the more rewarded you will be. GT5 is not for everyone, simply because it is to such an extreme with realism that unless you are a car enthusiast or your a long time fan of GT, you might find it hard to get into the game.

To me GT5 is probably one of the most amazingly detailed game, and such a astounding amount of realism with their new engine. Each car feels and drives differently. Using stuff like aero kits, transmission, LSD, suspensions. The list could go on, but you say that because you can add stickers to your car is a perfect example of how Forza has more variety? I find that hard to believe. There is so much **** you tweak with your car is unparalled. And lets not forget the sound of certain engines are absolutely incredible.

GT5 is about racing, and racing period. Its not about rims, neon lights, loud speakers or gangster rap. Its not about running into people and jumping off ramps. GT5 is a racing game, and its a damn good racing game, the best racing game. So I can understand if you dont like it, thats fine. But dont judge the game for what its not. I know it sounds like I am singleing you out, but i am not. Its just i get irritated with everyones opinion about why GT5 sucks, yet they try to play this game like its burnout.

So no I will agree, GT5 is not about stickers and flashy graphics, its about who is the superior driver and who has superior technique. And im not sure how you feel about the graphics, but watching a replay of my ZR1 or my Viper Overtaking a Lamborghini or Ferrai at over 100mph on a night time level like Special Stage Route 5 is one of the sexiest things I have ever seen.

But anyhow, sorry for my rant. I just wanted to say if anyone needs help or assistance with anything in GT5 just sent me a friend request and Ill help you the best I can.

Also, nobody is forcing you to use an overpowered car to win the races with. Choose a lesser car if you want a more competitive race. So ACE, get off the X-Box and come back to GT5!!!!!

You can do all the adjustments to your cars in forza, but there is also a full damage model. If I hit another car in a corner and I lose my front spoiler, I will have a hard time racing for the remainder of the race, you can also go into the pits to repair some of the damage to you car.  I've got every gt game made and have been a huge fan, but I feel like gt5 is just like gt1. There's nothing left to hold my interest. Where's the damage they were talking about. In forza if you slam on your brakes in front of a oppenent and he hits the back of your car, you lose your spoiler and if you engine is in the back your car starts back firing and missing and you lose power. That's the kind of racing I wanted from gt5, realism, not the same zombie drivers that you can out brake and knock out of the way in a corner. You try knocking a driver out of the way in forza and you damage your car. The damage forces you to drive clean. I've finished all the gt games all the way to the ends, this one is nothing new. The paint jobs on forza I'm talking about have nothing to do with stickers. You can custom paint your entire car or go into the storefront system and find thousands of custom paint jobs for the car your driving, and 90% are free. I'm talking pictures of people on your car from video games or movies or the bandit paint job for your old trans am to the f-bomb paint jobs from famous car shows to anything you can think of. You have the option of painting anything on your car. I've got carbon fiber paint jobs for all my cars. Forza came out along time before gt5 and it's still 100 times better and that's makes me sad because I wanted this game to be the greatest. I shouldn't have to pick a worse car to make the races better, Forza forces you to do that. You can never make you car better than your oppenents in every race. There's also 3 different difficulties in Forza so if your winning every race you can crank it up. I shouldn't have to play gt5 everyday for weeks to get to the races that finally have some competition. Every race should feel like a white knuckle event, I know every race in Forza is and I'm on the edge of my seat trying to win this race and keep from damaging my car because you have to pay for the damage at the end of the race. I keep finding myself falling asleep racing in gt5 because there's no cars around me and no reason to stay focused.

When you go into a championship set of races on this game, does it save inbetween each race or do you have to race through all races and get to the end? Because I don't have time to race through 5 races, I want to race through 1 race, it save, then go do something else, come back and start the next race. I don't believe you can leave during a championship, you will lose your spot in the races and have to start over.
