Has anyone here got the Formula GT yet?
It hasn't even once shown up in my used car dealership yet and I keep getting mostly the same cars instead and it's doing my head in :bang:
Also can you paint the Formula GT?

I've seen it in my used dealership once and it was just under 4.9 million credits. Unfortunately at the time I only had 1 million, I'm up to around 3.3 now and I'm not looking in the dealership again until I've got 5 million

Apparently there's a fix for finding a car you need for a race. Basically, start an event, then go back to the gt life page..if not, start the event, load it and then exit it to your home page..every time you start an event, your garage updates..like 30 times..so, try that out dude

I've been looking for two solid weeks now. I was playing b spec to fill the time till the car showed up but now my b spec level is 24 and I need it for that now too. I might just sit there and go to practice load a race exit then repeat. Whats maddening is how many times you see other cars pop up like mx-5's or even the rarer ones.

If you load up one of the licenses and keep pressing the arrow to skip to the next one (ie B-1 > B-2 > B-3 etc) after going from 1 through 5 it will have refreshed the entire dealership.

Cool thanks for tip. The load times are a lot quicker than normal races.

Update: Just tried this for two hours straight and still nothing... I keep seeing other sexy cars I want too but I know the minute I break down and buy one the Formula gt will show up. I'm gunna drive the **** out of that thing when I get it! The car will end up in court using a die-cast model to show the judge where I touched it. lol

Wow after spending all last night and today doin the license trick I finally managed to get the Formula GT. It's blue and the engine overhaul was 500,000 as was the chassis restoration but money doesn't really matter anymore as I have all the cars I need now. :)

ok so let me get this straight..

Step 1. Enter B License test from number 1
Step 2. When it loads, keep skipping till I get to 5 and then exit?
Step 3. Car shows up, I buy it and am a happy camper and then I can fap to some porn later on?

sounds like a plan..

Ya thats pretty much it except that it can still take 6-8 hours lol. Remember to wear safety goggles later on. You don't want your eyes getting pregnant.

[QUOTE="Makinen, post: 5308040]I've been looking for both the forumla GT and the Escudo Dirt Trail car for so long! Both have never shown up :([/QUOTE]

Funny story... well maybe not so funny; but I was waiting for the formula GT to show up. I had just over $5 M and on one of my tries the Escudo shows up, and I'm like no way... do you guys remember the trick you could to in GT 2? Tune it all the way then lower front downforce while increasing the back df all the way? Well for those who never tried it, once you hit a certain speed the freaking car would 'fly.' The nose would lift up all the way... it was pretty hilarious. Anyway, long story short I bought the car and guess what 40 or so mins later, the freaking Formula GT shows up!!! I just had over $4 mil 'cos I had seen it way back and all I rembered was $4 mil so I thought I was OK. Pissed me off! Now I'm just praying it's shows up again soon.

Just attempted the first race of the Formula GT Championship on Fuji and I just can't win it, I've tried it 3 times now and everytime I get 1st and lead the race from about lap 5 or 6 and when it comes to the final lap I always spin out and finish last :(
Maybe I'm being too aggresive and pushing the car too hard? I don't know, but the car does seem to snap oversteer at times.

[QUOTE="DreDayDetox, post: 5308791]Guys, if you're having trouble with the Formula GT Cup, look no further

http://www.gtplanet.net/forum/showthread.php?t=142091

Apparently, this is a racing guide for each race in the series, and it works well in B-spec too, so just follow that and post if it actually works because I'm still doing that tedious refresh car list thing and it's pissing me off that this car won't show up..[/QUOTE]

They're the setups I'm using and it works well until you get to lap 20 and keep spinning out:bang:

omfg this ****ing car won't show up after 50 refreshes...****ing christ..like you couldn't put every car on the list in that dealership like you did with the premiums? **** it, i'll try to level up to 23 in b-spec cause that's how the formula gt showed up in a-spec, right when I reached level 23 ...and if it doesn't show up then, then I'll go on a shopping mall and kill everyone there..THINK KAZ THINK! If you put every single car all at once in the garage in the previous games, then why didn't you do it with this one? That's really the only low blow I have with this game, everything else is perfect..just this one mistake he made...no, I don't wanna borrow anyone's car because I wanna build up my car collection so I can get that trophy...

It's annoying the hell out of me as well now. I spent over an hour doing the license refresh thing and over time I've gone from having one b-spec driver at level 6 or 7 to having one at level 20, 2 at level 10, one at level 5 and one at level 3 and level 21 overall. Still no Formula GT though and I had the same thing whereby one was there when I got to the level required to race in that event but only had 1.1 million credits at the time. Now I've got 5.5 and nothing is showing at all.

Just got it, during the time it took i got up to level 18 of bspec from 0, so, it took a bit of time for it to show up. Took it for a quick run and it looks like it's going to be tough to win that cup to get used to the car and beat everyone, maybe a day or two at least.


Tangent: are the daytona and indy brickyard road courses for real - are there actually races on those?

Kaz, by the time I get the formula GT, I think I'll be in line for Gran Turismo 6 cause you have ****ty dealership menu that refreshes about as fast Mozilla Firefox.
