Nissan MOTUL AUTECH GT-R 2008This car is built for Indy road track. It's speed and handling to me are pretty much as good as it's going to get. The smoothness of how you drive is what is really going to give you some quick lap times. Indy is a tough track because it has a lot of smooth flat parts for speed, but also some really tight corners so making the car be quick and handle well was a challenge. I made small changes each time and always kept shaving seconds off my time with each lap until it didn't matter what I changed I kept getting about the same times. Pretty much the key is to stick close as possible to all the corners and get right up against that white line on the final large turn that leads to the main straight for the quickest times.

P.S. I have a couple extra photos of thisĀ here
