Honda NSX GT500 Base Model ’08

One of my favorite race cars and perfect for 600pp races. I was sick and tired of all these 600pp race car seasonal events and i never had any cars to race with. I looked at some race cars that I thought would be good and this is one of the lightest and most hp race cars for this pp that you can buy. The best part is you can paint it whatever color you want. As I am sure most of you have noticed that usually isn’t the case for race cars. Stock matte black is an option which already looks awesome so I left it like that. The shape of this car looks like a stingray and in the matte black paint it just looks too good. I call this car “Black Swan” (like the movie) since it is very delicate and graceful when driving it. You aim it anywhere you want and the car will go there. The control is unreal. At the same time if you aren’t at the top of your game it can get crazy real fast. I think wheel drivers will like it since you barely have to turn the wheel for it to make pretty sharp turns. Remember it has a low rpm turbo meaning most of the power is in the lower rpm range. Be careful when in gear 2 when exiting corners because if you slam on the gas all the power comes at once making the tires spin too fast potentially causing you to spin out. Also if you are in higher gears shifting a bit before the redline will keep the power coming and let you accelerate faster than if you waited for the full range of the rpm. I love the car and it’s perfect for seasonal events.

    This tune works real well at 500pp also. That new seasonal event I was having trouble with and this just stomped on the competition.

  • MostWanted

    I got the same Problem

    BTW for 600PP races the Diablo GT LM Race car is better. With oil change it has 600PP and more pulling power. It’s the NO-MAD Diablo. It beat this car by a LONNNNNNNNNNNNNNNG SHOT.

    • Wow, I’ll have to try it out.

  • Chris Linton

    Same issue with 2nd gear not hitting 1.555 – 1.755 maybe? About to try it in the seasonal released tonight. So many of your other tunes are awesome so thanks to you for all of your work!

    European Hot Hatch seasonal with the Abarth 400PP tune you have … Killer. Thanks again!

    • Make sure you have power parts installed first then set the transmission. If that still doesn’t work, I’m not sure why it’s different, but just look at the gear graph and make sure the spacing looks fairly even between them and you’ll be fine.

        Thanks. I’ll give it another try since I got smoked at Nurburgring last night. I just got this game and haven’t played my GT5 in years so I’m going to set my wheel back up and see if that helps at all (I highly doubt it but I’m running out of excuses!).

        Love your tunes. Thanks again!

        • If you’re talking about the seasonal event the transmission may be a little short for the nurburgring. Might need to stretch the final gear to the left a little.

  • Joe Sauer

    I think it’s supposed to be 1.855 for 2nd gear
