My whole life I planned on making an ESCUDO rally tune specifically for Pikes Peak. Unfortunately Gran Turismo has not added that track in the last few games and Kaz, the creator said it for sure will not be added to GT6. This is disappointing for me, but I have to cut my losses. If I can’t do a Pikes Peak tune I can still make a killer rally tune. This is by far the most insane rally car out there. It has over 1000hp and weighs as much as a 2yr old child. I’m surprised it doesn’t fly away the second it hits a bump. I assume the designers at Suzuki thought the same thing and knew they needed a ton of downforce to keep it planted on the track. As if the extreme light weight, and extreme horsepower wasn’t crazy enough they added the most extreme wing to match. It’s almost half the car. Just monstrous. It provides huge downforce and I rarely have any trouble keeping the car on the track. Even when I hit bumps it’s very stable. It has destroyed all my other rally car tunes in terms of time around a track. It’s funny seeing my WRX’s time and then seeing this car do the same track so much faster.
I have raced it at dirt and snow tracks, but at the huge snow Chamonix track I reached over 180 mph! This is on the snow and ice. I’m sitting on my couch driving and was actually scared of a huge crash. You feel it shaking the entire time and any mistake will send you into the wall. The key to driving it is pulse the gas pedal. Never just slam it and expect to go around turns like a normal road car. Rally is all about the little touches needed to make the car go where you want. Pulsing the gas and break are the best way to do this most of the time. If you do not rally often or are used to this much power give this at least 5 laps before calling your decision on it. It took me a little while to get the hang of it, but once you do it is well worth it.
Also I added stage 2 turbo instead of the more powerful stage 3. The power band (graph) is all the way at the end already and stage 3 made it much worse. You can change it to stage 3, but I’m telling you now you will be slower. It just doesn’t deliver the power at all unless you are in the very last of the RPM and then it’s all at once. With stage 2 it rams the power the entire time making it easy to make any turn and still have enough power for the straights.

Best of all parts. Make sure to use Stage 2 turbo. Snow or dirt tires.
Hello everyone, I am Shmogt, the creator of Team Shmo. I have been playing Gran Turismo since GT2 and started getting really into tuning in GT5. I progressed from basic race tunes into drifting. Now, I can make tunes for literally anything. As I got better and better, I deiced it was time to give back and share them with everyone!
