It was brought to my attention (by 210rida) that a new thread should be created to host the challenge for GT3 Hybrid cars. Hopefully most of you have atleast of heard of these "Hybrid" cars...

It's basically the swapping and customizing of cars from other vehicles within Gran Turismo 3. For example, a V12 engine from the TVR speed 12 swapped into a Civic hatchback...all this can be achieved through the use of a gameshark (which some of you may feel is cheating, but that's another issue).

Anyone is welcome to enter in the challenge. The first of these challenges was suggested by SohcVtecTurboHB. Here are his requirements:

Car: 5th gen SiRII
Course: Laguna Seca (Simulation Mode at Run Setting)
Hp Limit: 750hp
Engine Displacement Limit: 5.0L
Engine Size Limit: V6/I-6
Drivetrain: FF baby!
Rims Limit: 18's
Other Limits: NONE

Whoever can achieve the fastest time wins...This challenge will last today (9/13) and tomorrow (9/14).

The second of these challenges will take place on sunday (9/15)
Here are its requirements:

Car: s2000 (Base, Type V, Spoon, or Mugen ONLY)
Course: Grand Valley
Hp Limit: 1000hp
Engine Displacement Limit: 5.0L
Engine Size Limit: 8cyl.
Weight Limit: None
Drivetrain: FR (ONLY)
Rims Limit: 19's
Other Limits: NONE

Simply post your times and specs using this format to avoid confusion:


Time:
Course:
Specified Car:

Rim Size:

Thanks and Good luck. ;)

You ain't lying, w/ FF setup it's hard with all that power. It really challenges ya cuz any FF car with that much power is most likely a drag car. Good time bro! It is very frustrating!!!!! I 'll keep trying but that time is gonna be hard to beat:(

Course: Laguna Seca
Specified Car: SiR II
HP: 748 @ 7700 rpm but yet only 70.2lb.ft. @ 7200 rpm
Weight: 805K
Engine Displacement: 1595CC
Engine Size: I-4 DOHC
Drivetrain: FF
Rim Size: 16in

i didn't do anything really yet to my car.. i barely started to run Laguana Seca this morning.. the only mods ive done was the ingame upgrades and just uped the HP to has close as i could.. still stock engine.. the thing thats killing me is that 70.2lb.ft of TORQUE! WTF! :confused: i think the GameShark has a glitch in it that fuks up your torque.. i might go with a V6 or I-6 or just throw in a B18C5 engine in it or the Spoon engine, but i need to fix this torque issue..

good times guys.. this wan't easy to work with! FF suks ass! :mad:

yeah that was hard as shit...good times guys...i managed to get my torque up to 101.1 with that set up.

does anyone know what the correct conversion is for the torque? cuz 210, i don't think that number has been converted yet. good job by the way usin' a 4 cyl. to run that time.

damn.. i was breaking 1:23's eaisly! i see that you had the Heaviest car out of me and St8.. i think 1kg = 2.2lbs so St8 was beating you in wheight by about 145lbs and i was beating you by 167lbs! also i noticed you car's HP was only 560.. i had 683 and St8 had 742.. another area your car wasn't as strong as our cars.. also why did you go with 18" rims? big rims aren't always the answer.. i know these are little things but when your dealing with fractions of a second, every lil bit that you can make your car better will help you run lower times.. if you want some more tips ill help you out if you want..

well unfortunetly St8mutt took this event.. i am positive that i could of broke that time but me and St8 were kicking but in Halo online! :D so i didn't really get a chance to improve my time but im going to try to take the S2000 challenge! ;)

Guess Str8 takes another one with that impressive time. I thought I was good since I beat everyone I play at this game. Guess there's always someone better than you at something.

How'd you get your car so so light weight????
:eek: That's a 1251 lb car!!!!! Mine was 1800+:(

How'd you do 210?

i think 210 is posting his time tomorrow...if that's the case, you still have time to try and beat it...we'll make tomorrow the last day.

SohcVtec, i used the chassis of the Tommy Kaira ZZ...the one that looks like a modena. ;) see if that improves your time.
