(I didn't see one anywhere so I started one.)

I have my GC8 for about two or three weeks and I can happily say that its one of my best cars right now. I also have a 600hp/b GDB-C that I'm working on which is also pretty neat. Course, getting used to the different trannies is weird but do-able.

BTW, does anyone have any idea what the aero kits are aside from A, since I believe its the one with the giant foglights on the front. And if so, what do they look like or at least their close RL counterparts.

Posted by: Sailor Enlil Nov 26 2007, 04:15 PM
I also have a GDB-C, fully tuned and fully dressed:

Great car for courses with many twists and turns, considering it's built for rallying.

Posted by: Aoshi Nov 26 2007, 06:24 PM
Yeah, I've been concentrating on Hakone since I'm a recent ID4 convertee. Other than that, just been trying to figure was on keeping the speed up in the turns.

Posted by: Spike Razzor Nov 26 2007, 08:13 PM
I want some information on the SVX, I want to built one that looks like "Pluto", the 600HP ghost lol.

And for spike the SVX is good,I have a friend of my that owns a SVX he called's is Batman because the body kit that have on looks awesome plus(obviously)is black the car.Good car for my opinion!!!

And by the way I own a Subaru R2,one of the best subaru's of all time. cool.gif

my gc8 is aero B and its fine

i hate the gdbc the most...
well, not really hate, but...it just sucks compared to all the other subaru cars...

Posted by: Aoshi Nov 28 2007, 11:59 PM
Its funny that its the better looking one out of the GDB generation. But then again the GDB-F is way so much better looking that that abomination that's coming out next year... @.@

Posted by: battousaiii Nov 29 2007, 08:46 AM
i like the wrx hatch !

Posted by: cell Nov 29 2007, 09:01 AM
i owned a GDBC, i love both GDBC n GDBF, just too many ppl using the latest version GDBF so i decide not to follow, wan to be something special.

i got 1 in MT2 but i couldnt transfer cause that is in japanese version.

Posted by: Kramy Nov 29 2007, 10:06 AM

The makers of WMMT 3 I think they where drinking or something because some of Subaru's and Mitsubishi's body kits are horrible specially the Evo's with the big head lights,at least the subaru's head lights looks Better than the evo's because we are more common seeing subaru's with big head lights,I know evo's are common with big head lights in the front but they dont look good in my opinion. alien2.gif

Posted by: ac101 Nov 29 2007, 10:06 PM
they are rally lights for rally cars...

Posted by: Aoshi Nov 30 2007, 12:12 AM
And I have a GDB-C. Still the better looking body compared to the F. I mean, WTH is up with the second spoiler biggrin.gif. But yeah, can't really find any function for foglights in WMMT except either:

A: Blind your opponents
B: Blind the traffic into your opponents
C: You think you're cool and in denial that it doesn't create extra HP for your car.
D: Adds extra aerodynamic and less drag pts for your car on the Wangan runs.

BTW, I'm old school I guess. Like the Bunta mobile the most biggrin.gif

Posted by: rj123 Nov 30 2007, 02:49 AM
i has a GDB-C with 800 horses for mt3 but only drive on 600 so its all grip i cant seem to have the skill to handle the 800 horses i usually hit barriers :S no dress up since i just transfered my file from mt2 - mt3

So, what your saying is that Gen Sasaki (Gatchan) designed this car?

Posted by: Aoshi Dec 1 2007, 11:51 PM
Got to play around with my GDB-C today. Doesn't quite have the feel that my GC8 has. Course my GC8 is 810 while my GDB-C is at 680 or so. But having to deal with the whole 6-speed tranny is still kinda weird for me, especially playing with the Bunta mobile for so long. Couldn't quite beat my touge or the Osaka run too...

Posted by: Gdiago Dec 6 2007, 11:47 PM
Hey,
Just started a B4 Legacy the other day and am at 700 horses, im currently using Aero A, Watanabe 8-spokes, and an Original Carbon Bonnet as my set-up, but i was wondering if anyone has a better set-up idea, if you do let me know please.


Thanks!

Posted by: Aoshi Dec 7 2007, 12:21 AM
As far as I can tell, it seems to be pretty good so far. Just focus on full-tuning it and see what happens.

Posted by: battousaiii Dec 10 2007, 05:45 AM
How is the legacy? i really want to know cause i really want to make one.

Posted by: Aoshi Dec 10 2007, 07:40 PM
I haven't heard much about the Legacy. All I can say is to try it out and see. I would get one also but I think I have one too many AWD cars.

Posted by: RYO_SHOWDOWN Dec 10 2007, 08:44 PM
Last time i drive an Legacy on MT2.
It was a usual car but it looks more luxury than being a tuner car.
The subaru WRX STI were good at Hakone.



Posted by: battousaiii Dec 11 2007, 05:52 AM
i bought it. i am now apart of the subaru family,

it feels heavy and is slidy. but with the right dressup parts it'll be good.

Posted by: Aoshi Dec 11 2007, 11:17 AM
I'm pretty sure a CF hood would help but of course, that's second nature to everyone biggrin.gif

Posted by: Gdiago Dec 11 2007, 03:59 PM
The CF bonnet are good for the legacy, and i found the Watanabe 8 spokes and the aero a kit was a good set up, but, if your good at drift and your a fan of drifting corners and all, tghe legacy is a good car for you

Posted by: Aoshi Dec 12 2007, 12:25 AM
Now I'm running a CF hood with Aero C and a Straight GT wing on my GC8. It is one ugly combination right now... >.>

Posted by: Chaos Dec 12 2007, 03:24 AM
How bout the Alycone SVX

Posted by: battousaiii Dec 12 2007, 04:29 AM
aw thats lame. i like gripping without sliding out like c1

Posted by: Aoshi Dec 12 2007, 02:11 PM
Well I mainly run Osaka and Hakone but it seems to fare pretty well at 740 on C1 as well. Other than that, loathing the big giant one piece bumpers(back and front) and the large foglights w/ corner signals. As I said, a really ugly looking kit, but gave me a 3'55" on Hanshin in TA.

Posted by: wangan_sti Dec 13 2007, 01:49 AM
Im turning my GDBC into a RA-R/s203 laugh.gif . great combination. got to work out wit the handling of the GDBC happy.gif

Posted by: Aoshi Dec 13 2007, 09:38 AM
Let me know how that goes, I still need to finish tuning my GDB-C but I plan on finishing dress up on my Corolla first.

Posted by: Manu Dec 23 2007, 06:39 AM
hello everyone.. im a gdb-f user and i recently finished the story mode.. i just wanna ask what is the best aero part for gdb-f?? some says set b wing-less.. currently i changed my aero set c to b..

Posted by: n3o Dec 23 2007, 07:03 AM

hey bro try using stock aero... even stock spoiler/bonnet.. use aero sidemirrors.. that's my current setup, see no difference in other aero sets..

Posted by: Aoshi Feb 1 2008, 12:06 AM
I just finished dress up on my GC8 about two or three weeks ago. As far as I can tell, it doesn't seem to be running slower with this setup:

Stock Aero kit
Stock Mirrors
Stock Spoiler
Carbon Fiber Bonnet
Volk TE37s
Subaru Sticker

Btw, I just ran a low 3'53" on Osaka so as far as I can tell, I don't feel much if anything.

Yeah I guess that would be different if you're not used to it. Its great for Hakone also which I managed to squeeze a 2'35" but i dunno. I kinda like it to have the choice of sliding when I need to while being flexible about sticking to the pavement, though i'm pretty sure you'll agree that it depends on your habits too.

Posted by: Aoshi Feb 21 2008, 04:37 PM
@ Shadow

I was considering Aero A for a long time, but still thought that it looked too sport compact like so I kept the stock aero. I changed out my mirrors and added glows for distraction biggrin.gif Managed to get a 3'52" Osaka and did a 2'35"1xx on Hakone. Too bad that it sucks on Wangan, even with a 4"03".

Posted by: shadowsuke Feb 22 2008, 08:46 PM
gc8's accel is quite crap actually..

dunno why they call it a gay car.. =_=

and the mr2 handles so much better.. but nah, i guess you can make the gc8 run like wind..

THE MR2
IS JUST ONE GOOD CAR KNOWN BY ITS HANDLING...

Posted by: Aoshi Feb 22 2008, 11:08 PM
Well I do notice a speed lag around 2nd and 3rd gear. Once I hit 4th for several seconds, I tend to somehow slowly gain on people. I think its mainly boost, especially during ghost battles and or people's erratic driving style. Other than that, I don't mind the slow take off, it gives me time to think up a strategy.

Posted by: Aoshi Feb 23 2008, 07:32 PM
Well I ran a 2'34" on Hakone, but the worse thing was pulling a 2'33"5xx with a S30. I wish it had some of the oversteer that the S30 has but I guess I'll have to improvise to shave off those extra milliseconds.

Posted by: shadowsuke Feb 24 2008, 10:10 AM
so i'm not the only one feeling that the gc8 is sluggish..

and not only us.. a few of them out there feel the same too..

Posted by: Kenji Feb 24 2008, 10:15 AM
It's quite hard to catch up when you felled behind for about +/- 200m in Yokohane if you're against good Yokohane players...

But then, it can do wonders in Osaka... Love how it corners gracefully even though you screwed up... =P

Posted by: Aoshi Feb 24 2008, 11:30 AM
Yeah, its pretty nice and holds its own on Osaka since most people drive Evo 8s and Evo 9s. Though I kinda like the simplicity of the 5-speed tranny even though it loses out in acceleration versus the GDB-C/F and Evos. At least it isn't as bad as the R2 as far as stability, just more in terms of a rock as far as making it slide around a tight s-turn or hairpin.

Posted by: fkn Mar 3 2008, 07:19 PM
Hey guys..

Could u give me a run down of the GC8?

Like, whats good and bad about it..

One thing iv noticed, the GC8 has horrible acell during the 2nd, 3rd and 5th gear, but its 4th gear is simply awesome...

And i think my car tends to slide around a buttload, but i think thats just poor drivers skill on my part..

Off the top of my head i got:
Aero Set C
2nd last enkie rims
the spoiler obtained after Aero set C
and the aero mirrors?

Im sorry if im not helpful enough, but yeah, im still new to this lol

It's a 5 gear car, you're probably shifting way too early from 2nd gear to 3rd gear

Ideally your shift from 2nd to 3rd should be between 190km/hr to 195km/hr.

This applies for any 5 gear car.

If you shift like that, you should be able to hold up with other 6 gear cars.

Posted by: Aoshi Mar 3 2008, 10:45 PM
More or less, he summed it up about right, though I shift either slightly earlier or later depending on the person. Other than that, it should handle at least as well as the Evo 8 and Evo 9. I only say that since its my main car.

As far as the aero kits go, I still use my stock STi aero. Not that there's a problem with any of the aero packages, its more of personal preference and individuality. The behavior though is balanced out though if I'm not mistaken, Aero C is the heaviest out of the three, though there is a separate thread for the aero kits including pictures of how they look.

my mr2 is so much faster than that shit

Posted by: Aoshi Mar 8 2008, 10:56 PM
That's too bad. What seems to be the problem with controlling that kind of car? If its the acceleration, I can kinda live with it since I don't really care too much about take off. As far as I know, you don't have to turn much to make the GC8 do wonders, but it depends on what you want it to do. I just mainly slide it around, though the way its setup seems to work best on Hakone; but that's just me. If you want to slide less, I'm pretty sure that Aero C works the best since I'm having trouble with my Corolla sliding like my GC8 despite being two different cars. IDK, the GC8 shouldn't be something that's dreaded, only if it explodes on impact like uh... the pinto??? XD

Posted by: TheStig Mar 18 2008, 12:30 AM
I'm currently in thought of throwing my GDB-F back to stock but I was wondering if there was another competitive setup for it?

I'm currently:

Bodykit: C
Hood: FRP Ducted
Wheels: Enkei Tarmac T4s (I forgot the name of em... Last enkies)
Wing: 3d Spoiler
Mirrors: Aero

No other addons ie: Neon or stickers.

Hey u'v prob answered this question but ill ask anyway lol

Whats the best set up for the GC8?

I was thinkin of changing the Aero kit, as i have it on Aero C, but im torn between the Enkei Rims and the Yokohama rims...which is better?

I also might keep the Wing on it, but im not sure which is the best..

In your opinion Aoshi, which is the best set up for Hakone, and which is the best for everything else, mainly Osaka though...

And which set up is the best overall?

Soz - im asking a lot but yeah, i really want to make my GC8 to live upto my standards, i dnt want it to dissapoint me, which im sorta gettin to the point to...


Posted by: Rakurai^ Mar 19 2008, 03:36 AM
The GC8 setup that I'm most comfortable with (and I wouldn't say its the best):

Aero Set A
Aero Mirrors
Enkei WRC Forged Rims
Carbon Bonnet w/ duct
Original Wing

If I wanted a setup specifically for counter-ramming, I would change the rims to Watanabe Stellars (this will decrease your acceleration tho).

Posted by: fkn Mar 19 2008, 03:51 AM
@ Rakurai
How would u rate the Acell and handling on that set up?

I want a set up that is balanced and trains myself in handling turns better...

Aero set C is somewhat good, but its only good for Hakone, which i dnt mind, but everyone is gay for osaka these days, so i feel that its somewhat redundant for that...

Posted by: SHIRO Mar 19 2008, 06:15 AM

For the Gc8...

I might change my set up from Aero Set C to A...

I find that acell is toooooo sloowwww and i lose too much speed on the turns, maybe its just that im still a noob, running 2'40 on hakone outbound and 2'38 inbound. Havnt tried Osaka yet, but im sure ill run a slow as time...3'50 is pretty fast!

What are the differences between the three (A,B and C)?

hello subaru people!

Is Subaru Legacy good in performance? What is the difference about Legacy from those WRXs? (not in terms of its "Boxer Engine") but more on overall specs and performance....?

(I hope they put Subaru Forester in MT, just a thought laugh.gif )

Was thinking of building a GDB-F, how is it going up against the the GDB-C?

I dunno if I can answer you on that one, but I saw this kid with a gdb-c and he kicks ass at our arcade. He kept winnin and winnin and winnin. No one could beat him on any stage, even with his friend drivin the car, it still won. Hakone, Osaka, C1, Wangan..... It was sooo funny cos one dude with his s33z, kept losin to this lil kid and eventually the kid n his friend left. So yer.... take what you want from that. But I was convinced after seeing this kid that a gdb-c can easily defeat an s33z. tongue.gif

Doesn't the Z33 perform poorly on all those stages except Wangan? XD.

I've own a GDB-C and it didn't go that fast in straights
but usually catch up in turns

That's too bad. What seems to be the problem with controlling that kind of car? If its the acceleration, I can kinda live with it since I don't really care too much about take off. As far as I know, you don't have to turn much to make the GC8 do wonders, but it depends on what you want it to do. I just mainly slide it around, though the way its setup seems to work best on Hakone; but that's just me. If you want to slide less, I'm pretty sure that Aero C works the best since I'm having trouble with my Corolla sliding like my GC8 despite being two different cars. IDK, the GC8 shouldn't be something that's dreaded, only if it explodes on impact like uh... the pinto??? XD

i have no idea.. i tried to make the car work for me. heck, i tried to even work for the car.. just didn't click.. and it's my mt2 car till now.. dunno why i can't control it..

o if acceleration is a problem with the gc8. I recommend lik aero kit A with yokohama rims. I guess the Super Advanced (Racing v2) (lvl 5) would fit it perfectly. OR you can go for the Watanabe 8 Spoke. (lvl 3) tongue.gif Also giv it a carbon ducted bonnet (lvl 26). A 3D wing (lvl 17) and Aero mirrors at lvl 30. Try that out for size.

- aero kit A
- yokohama super advanced OR watanabe 8 spoke
- 3D wing
- carbon duted bonnet
- aero mirrors.

Might change the wheels, not sure what i have atm yokohama TCII wheels, might change them to either Enkei RC-T4 or even the super advanced like u suggested..

Posted by: Kenji Mar 29 2008, 03:14 AM
IMO

GC8 handles the best, at the cost of slower/lack of speed.
GDBF and C performs around the same, but IMHO the F has a lil faster accel on straight compared to the C.

Any GDB users cares to add/fix?

wow you got the yokohama TCII for your GC8? That is good! But if you can bother to unlock the Yokohama TGIIs, which are lvl 39s. Then your GC8 would be awesome. Right now you are at level 34, as you just unlocked the double flames, so just 5 more levels and you will have awesome wheels.

evo 8 = great top speed & good handling.

Since when doe Evo's and STi's have great top speed? Maybe your thinking of acceleration, you know, how long it takes to get up to decent speeds.

I guess im gunna have to just get better to realise the potential of the car lol

I used to have the Super-advanced yokohama wheels, i liked the look of them, but they're a ricer wheel according to the wheels guide lol blink.gif

I think its either the if its the later of the Enkei or the Yokohama that iv obtained at being dress up lvl 34 or watevers lol...Gotta change my Aero kit to stock or A...Only 12 or so levels to go! Oh yeah Purple colors FTW! laugh.gif

I saw a GDB-F drive the other day, i must say that its very very solid in its handling, in that it does wat the driver wants and its responce in turns is awesome..and the acell is great, maybe due to its 6-gears

Havnt reached that level of greatness yet, still noob though lol... crying2.gif

MY DREAM IS TO BE HOKAGE!... fear2.gif ...but since i cant do that, a '35 in hakone both ways and a '00 in Osaka are my goals!

Update on the GC8's Acell, with the right aero kit and wheels, its acell could rival the evo and GDB-F/C...maybe be a fraction slower, but when ur racing, its upto other variables to decide whos faster right? grin2.gif


Posted by: MonsterSupra Mar 29 2008, 09:41 PM
its a pretty good car in my opinion.... but i dont like it for some reason >> i think its just cuz i dont like 4WD LOL

that is because it is a very new car and it is just an awkward car. Cos it is like a normal car you see on the streets that you dont tend to think should be modified. But I think that is all wrong... any car can be modified and I think will look good.

Good luck with your MS6 project.... I think you will have fun with it. PM Roxas3 if you want more info on it.

I never thought anyone considered the GC8 Impreza as a top tier. Most people around me always assumed it to be 2nd tier. But I dunno, its probably my best car right now; does decently enough on all the courses for me. Still trying to break out of that "out of practice" funk.

For anyone who is thinking about making a GC8, just do it. At least you'll know how it'll drive, at least to your standards for the most part.

BTW if anyone's wondering, my currrent setup is

WR Blue
Volk TE37
Stock Aero
CF Hood

And I did put my neon tubes back on since I kinda got bored having them off. They really don't do much except distract the person behind you... XD

By STi stickers you mean the WRC Sticker set at the end right? I personally haven't lost faith in mine yet, just sometimes when I haven't been playing for a while, I kinda forget what i'm supposed to do. Though I've been told that my setup slides out a lot, which seems to suit just fine for the technical turns of Hakone.

BTW, GC8 has a slower acceleration compared to GDB-C/F(And Evo 8 & 9) but has a stronger 3rd and 4th gear. Its something that becomes more apparant when its full tuned.

From what the FAQ and other threads suggest, Stock or Aero C I guess but for the GC8, Aero C looks like some weird SpoCom monstrosity that someone made while they were drunk. I used it for a while but I dunno...

You are really confusing me. Did you mix the 2 cars around? Cos Kenji said that the R2 is slippery and shit and the R32 and evos are grippy. But you said the r32 is slippery and shit and the R2 is grippy.

You sure you said the right thing. Cos I know R2s are slippery as my best friend has a 740HP one and he slips and slides through Osaka in Battle Mode all the time, but with his R32, he stays in the corner and corners perfectly..... So now I am..... blink.gif

i think the complete opposite lol >> sorry if i sound like a retard lol! but in my opinion the R2 is by far much more grippier grin2.gif i think its the way i drive. but MR2, R2, Z31, and the S15 are the grippiest. i am so weird >_<

GC8 question...
Does the GC8 have better top speed than the 350z? (Z33?)

I was bet the top player in Wangan line and i constantly kept catching upto the ghost every time i lost speed and put it back up?

UPDATE on the GC8
AWESOME car...just needs a new aero kit...and to put back the RCII, i just put the Enkei RC-TCII but i dnt like how they look...

Just need to get better at NBL...and then im Fastest in Metro Highway!

Posted by: Aoshi Mar 31 2008, 11:21 PM
The GC8 has a lower top speed than the Z33 Fairlady. That Z is best on straights, like Wangan. The reason why it caught up with you was because Ghost battles always has boost on for the computer.

Are you pulling a prank or something?
RWD R32 ??????????

and regarding that R2 slides/grip thing... it's personal opinion. The R2 is my first car and I've driven it for about a month and I've put in a total of 4,000km+ in a month alone. Then I switched to R32 and I'm overhelmed by the amount of grip it has..

[Not going to comment further regarding the Rs since this is a Subaru thread]

Posted by: Death_B2KSJ Apr 1 2008, 05:21 AM
yer the r32 does hav alot of grip and I think it is better than the r2. But i havnt driven an r2 and i see my friend drive his and it slips and slides every corner it does and the smallest bump decreases its speed so much.

its an unfair boost..... a GDB-C totally pwned my top MR2 ghost on osaka.... for some stupid reason he crashed quite a few times, but on the straights he caught up, even though my MR2 had a perfect run....

Well, your car has slow accel, and GDBC is among the cars with the fastest acceleration...

@ kenji: so your saying, no matter what and how much i beat that same GDB-C top ghost with my MR2 today by +200m!?... my top ghost will STILL lose...!?

im wondering.... is EVERYONE a weak ghost where i live then? seems that one after another, there is always a new top player........ its just the bs boost....

no way an 820 R33 on New Belt onward to wangan can get caught by a 760 R32. especially when the person in the R33 is going a perfect line.

yer its wierd... I dunno all about this ghost thing, but they try and make it a challenge all the time.

Posted by: Aoshi Apr 2 2008, 12:39 AM
I think that the Crown titles are just for show anyways... I mean, I'm pretty sure that I'm not the only person to burn a bunch of credits on one person. Sides, with the boost and all, racing the computer even if its the other person's run isn't as thrilling since the only person with pressure is you.

I only say that since the Hakone, Osaka, and Wangan titles seem to change very frequently in my area.

Ok ok.... big xeoreg is here. Back to topic...

Im looking at maybe getting a gdb-c, gdb-f or a gc8 someday... dun know when... mayb when I finish my s30z, e9 and r32. So what is the recommended impreza that I try out. Cos By then I think I would be pretty experience and I may want another challenge. I heard the gc8 is quite nice. I also still remember the gdb-c kid. LOL he kicked ass with his... so I am very tempted to try that out... but I heard it is similar to an evo9. So there is really no point is there. maybe gc8?

Posted by: Lonely_driver Apr 2 2008, 04:21 AM
errr regarding my last post, i was talking about RWD "feeling" of R32, I know actual R32 are not RWD wink2.gif
and regarding R2 handling, I haven't even actually finish it's basic tuning yet, my opinion was based on R2 official TA car.

sorry for the confusion, I'll post more comment later after I fully tuned my R2 wink2.gif

Posted by: Death_B2KSJ Apr 2 2008, 04:24 AM
o ok. Thanks for clearing that up LD. lol i see you havnt got the full feel of the r2 yet. Have you done any ghost vs? It would be a good time to unlock what you want now. It is easier now that later to get the top lvl 31 to 46 stuff. As the cars are easier right now.

GO THE GC8!!!!

If ya want a challange, the GC8 isnt a top tier car, but a pretty good car in its own right lol...just stay away from aero kit B and C LMAO whistling.gif

The GDB series are a bit too top tier and used too much, gdb-fs are running rampant cuz of their performance..

Im sure people will fish ya in the GC8...isnt that a bonus? lmao happens to me ALL the time... laugh.gif

FKNWOG doesnt fit and its just too sad lol...

Although if u have a friend that has a GDB-f, ask him to test the baby out lol U apparently its just an E9 with a Subaru badge lol

Posted by: Death_B2KSJ Apr 2 2008, 05:25 AM
no I have found out the e9 is lik the gdbc and e8 is lik the gdbf. And I know that cos I hav watched a gdbf v gdbc v e9 v e8 before. Damn it was funny. All 760HP on Hakone. Fairly similar setups and the e8 is also infront fighting with the gdbf winning on turns, while the e9 and gdbc are winning on the straights and its really funny. Cos it was a close race but at the end the e8 won by a tiny 2 metres. tongue.gif

New to the game?
The boost grows stronger day by day or plays after plays if someone thrown in loads of credits.

Back to topic;
@Death_B2KSJ If you insist to make a new car, the GC8 isn't a bad choice. With the right settings, it can be a ram resistant car...

Personally, I will suggest you not to make any new cars. The reason is except your Supra, none of your cars has even touched 1,000 km...

Posted by: Death_B2KSJ Apr 2 2008, 05:44 AM
lol I know but I bet I can make my s30z and GTO do that. tongue.gif I dun really care about my r32 and e9 much. I may do that later. Im just thinkin about get a new car... not really want one yet. I already said before I may just do it AFTER i hav fully done up my s30z, r32 and e9. Which will take awhile. So I guess end of this year or next year. laugh.gif

Yeah, full tune at least one of your cars and then consider about making another one. Two of mine are already full tune with one more car 7 stages away from being number three. GDB-C and GDB-F are both good cars and behave in a similar fashion where as the GC8 is somewhat different in terms of handling and the unique acceleration of a 6-speed transmission. But which ever one you choose, make sure you full tune it, otherwise, you're not seeing the potential of what it can do.

Posted by: Death_B2KSJ Apr 2 2008, 03:44 PM

Posted by: fkn Apr 2 2008, 10:43 PM
Hey guy i was just thnking...

Which courses are the best choice for any of the subarus?

I assume the GC8 is best at Hakone, possibly C1 & NBL and to a lesser extent, Osaka..

Im not sure about the GDB-F/C nor the Legacy...

R2 would pwn in Hakone and possibly c1 too...but more so Hakone..

Just going on what im gathering from the forum? Can any1 help?

Posted by: TheStig Apr 2 2008, 11:43 PM
GDB-F is godly for Osaka. GC8 i'm guessing would be good for Hakone (5 gear ftw). Everything else is a tie between GDB-C/F. Although we won't know for sure until people start pushing the Subies like the Evo 8.

Posted by: Death_B2KSJ Apr 2 2008, 11:54 PM

Posted by: Aoshi Apr 4 2008, 06:56 AM
GC8 can handle Osaka fairly well, though its not my favorite course now. I managed to pull a 3'52" but as I said before, i've moved onto bigger and better things. It'll handle C1 and New Belt and Yoko pretty decently though Wangan is sorta a 50-50 type of thing where either the person is good or not. Though that's where my other car comes in.

Posted by: Death_B2KSJ Apr 4 2008, 07:08 AM
lol which other car? jza80? But yer wangan is mainly bout speed. Except the traffic. tongue.gif you just gotta dodge them or ram them out of your way. I love cars like the s30z and the gc8 as well as the fc and the e3. Cos they are all lik looked upon and laughed at but in the end we are the winners. laugh.gif

Posted by: Death_B2KSJ Apr 6 2008, 02:21 PM
it depends what you are lookin for in a car. If you are lookin for handling... go for the gdb-f. But if u are lookin for speed, go for the gdb-c. Either way.... u will hav a good car. wink2.gif Cos they are fairly similar, except for those 2. But they hav minor differences.

Posted by: fkn Apr 6 2008, 04:43 PM

The GDB series are for posers...Get the GC8 - Imprezza STi Version 5!

Now THATS a legendary car!!

But unfortunately, everyone picks the GDBF for its superiority...Somewhere in this thread theres a match up between the GDBF and the GDBC...Maybe 2 pages back? 5 max...

Posted by: Death_B2KSJ Apr 6 2008, 04:51 PM
yer the gc8 is awesome. But it is not a beginners car. It is more of an experimental car. You must know quite abit about the parts to place on this car, to make it good.

Posted by: fkn Apr 6 2008, 05:54 PM
Yeh im starting to see a lot of cars sliding a HELL of a lot more than my lil baby...

Im sorta experimenting with the wheels, but i like the Yoko RCII's the best, followed by the Enkei Rc-T4, but i wanna try the Super Adavanced and the Forged wheels, and the eight spoked also...

Then most of all i just wanna get my Aero A back in, i hate Aero B and C feels like im lugging a rock behind me...I might even go stock...

Can anyone help me with the difference between the A and the stock kits?

Also - Just a general question
Does hoods and mirrors change anything, cuz i might revert back to my original hood if it doesnt?

Posted by: pimpmyride23 Apr 6 2008, 07:42 PM
Oh. alright. so what specs will do good for the gdb-c? for both acceleration, and top speed?

Posted by: fkn Apr 6 2008, 07:50 PM
Define specs?

Like parts and stuff...?

Posted by: pimpmyride23 Apr 6 2008, 07:53 PM
Yeahp. smile.gif

Posted by: fkn Apr 6 2008, 08:00 PM
I guess reduce the weight as much as u can so carbon hood, aero mirrors and experiment with the rear wings...

Im not too sure about aero kits, but C is most likely the heaviest, so if u feel it slides too much, change it to that, A provides more acell but at the cost of being more slidey and B may be more stable on straights, but at the cost of acell and handling..

Mind u these are MINOR adjustments, of maybe 10% to all parameters at the most lol...

As for tires, Go to the wheels guide on the main page and search the last 2 pages of the type of tires is good for what, if memory serves me right, enkei's are good for handling and Yoko is good for All round...just check on the page...

Personal preference is the RCII by yoko - good wheel for handling, but the Enkeis are also good...just check that guide for something u want lol...

As i said, it all depends on personal preference...the wheels require the less amount of caution, as u can change them every 2 or so levels...The aero kits are the most cautious, make sure u like the look of them before u change, since ur gunna be stuck with them for a VERY long time, same with the hood and mirror, the rear wing is in between, but check the dress up level guide for more information.

lol, anyways, was thinking of getting a GDB-F but then I was looking a the Legacy and was wondering if I should use it instead. I know the Impreza defeats the purpose of the Legacy in this game, but I'm more of a large sports sedan kind of guy than I am a compact sedan =P.

So anymore ever driven the Legacy by any chance?

Posted by: marbleberry Apr 7 2008, 07:13 PM
@Spike Razzor

I've tried the Legacy already.
Its' acceleration is equivalent as an FD, but handles as good as the CT9A-8MR.

Because of the "slim" body, the Legacy could slip between 2 cars easily, but it doesn't lose the ability to "push" opponents car.

Posted by: Aoshi Apr 8 2008, 12:24 AM
I've only raced against a Legacy, even then it was a ghost battle. But from what I can tell, if you can control it, it handles pretty decently on Hakone as well. Not sure how well it does on the other courses overall, but I guess I can assume that its not that much of a difference compared to the GC8 & GDB-C/F.

As far as the people asking about dress up specs, go out there and experiment. There is "NO" best setup since it only affects the behavior of the car and not to mention that some people don't even know what they want their car to do. Honestly, I'd just try out one setup, and just keep going at it till I find something that fits my style.

Btw, as far as the Bunta mobile is on the topic, I wouldn't mind a coupe version of the GC8 or even the 22B. But the Version.VI is as close as you're going to get, except that it has an extra set of doors. Aside from the weight, there's not much difference except cosmetically and probably the tuning of the EJ20 since Bunta's car is "fictional" though it does have the STi/22B Front end.

Posted by: fkn Apr 8 2008, 02:07 AM
Aw....I wanted the GC8V...or GC8F as wiki calls it...so confused blink.gif

Oh well the GC8G is good enough i guess, but im just gunna call it the GC8, same concept and looks so yeah, aside from the doors as Aoshi pointed out, there looks to be no difference.

Anyways, lets focus on Max tune for now lol

Aoshi - can u offer any tips for better times on Osaka and Hakone? I think im shifting down to 3rd to much on both...whats the ideal shift down point in either?

Currently i shift down in osaka when speed goes under 240 and in Hakone under 170 or in tight turns, most notabily the conseq S turns.

Is that too high to drop it down a gear?

Posted by: marbleberry Apr 8 2008, 02:39 AM
@fknazn

IMHO, you don't need the 3rd gear on Osaka.
For my type of driving on Hakone, i put my gear into 3rd only on a few turns that is really tight. I think there are 3 turns that needs 3rd gear on both Hakone Inbound / Outbound.
But from what I've heard from a few Hakone pros, 5-geared car only needs to shift down to 4 in Hakone. So, you don't need the 3rd gear. But, I found it quite hard not to shift down to 3, as my exit speed is still slow on those corners, and if I didn't put my gear into 3, i would lose the optimum acceleration of my car.

I'm still waiting for my LEGACY to be Fully-tuned though.. I asked my friend to FT it in Indonesia, so that I could save lots of money.. (around 40c/game in Jakarta, and $2/game in Sydney...)

Posted by: fkn Apr 8 2008, 02:51 AM
I guess its in how refined ur lines and exit speeds are huh..

I guess theres only 1 place for 3rd gear in Osaka...

As with hakone, i need to refine my run more before i stop relying on 3rd gear to save me lol...

There isnt any GC8 time attack videos...noooooo lol

I watch heaps of em, so yeah, maybe i should TA this week lol

Theres 2 places in osaka where you go down to 3rd gear in a 5 gear car.

The first red right turn in CP1.

The first red right turn in CP4.

As for Hakone, you only use 3rd for the 3 red turns. But even then, you can stick to 4th gear without any problems. It is not necessary to use 5th gear.

Posted by: Aoshi Apr 8 2008, 03:41 PM
Xeo's right, Hakone doesn't have long enough straights to even sit at 5th or 6th gear so usually the higher speed sections you can hold at 4th.

Its mainly personal preference though people will say otherwise. GDB-C is supposedly for handling and GDB-F is more for speed. Regardless, they're both fast.

not really the way to explain it laugh.gif

GDBC has a more powerful 5th gear than the GDBF.
GDBF has a more powerful 6th gear than the GDBC, but both cars are generally weak in top gear.

Both cars will slide, but GDBF will regain grip faster than the GDBC.

Both cars are very good and are capable of setting WR. Go try both on official machine and decide which one you like better.

Ideal setting for Osaka for my GC8

Im looking at:
57F wheels
Aero A or stock
Straight Wing
Aero mirrors
Carbon Hood

And should i start using 780 or stay 760?

And for each of the courses, prob use the same for TA and battle

Posted by: zerobass Apr 16 2008, 04:37 AM
760. 780 is too much imo for osaka.

"Dudeeee ugly car...but ur such a noob cuz liek, ur dress level looks gay n shiz and ur noob cuz ur car looks like its been to ugly-ville so its free stars for me..."

Ok - ill change it ASAP lol

oh, was in front of your car for most of the time, so i didn't have time to laugh
=P

I want a gc8 to TA...
u got discards?


Posted by: fkn Apr 16 2008, 05:50 AM
Well yeah, iv gotten used to the Aero-C on my GC8

And iv gotten the works sticker installed, so it might be a good change - although iv forgotten what it looks like when it has a stock kit on lol

Rear bumper on B looks good, but A looks the best overall lol

Id pick B - except the front just looks too much, if it had the GDB style rally lights i would for sure

Posted by: ac101 Apr 16 2008, 05:56 AM
gc8's aero B looks better than gdb's aero B
but both looks gooood with works sticker...=D
i love gdbf + aero B
did 49'3 with 740 on osaka in the summer...LOVED it..=D

Posted by: fkn Apr 16 2008, 06:00 AM
Whoa...thats quick and for 740...

I thought 760 was ample enough for Osaka...

Posted by: ac101 Apr 16 2008, 06:06 AM
740 is all about lines...
and gdbf + aero B = grip and fast accel <3
worked perfectly

Posted by: fkn Apr 16 2008, 11:18 PM
FT my dressup levels...Changed my Aero kit to A

It slides a considerble amount more than C, and it feels weird since iv driven C for so long, but acell is remarkbly better

Might try B later on, about 500kms down the track I wanna see what A can do in both battles and TA's

I'd have to agree, I'm used to my car driving a certain way so which is one reason why I dropped Aero C off of my GC8, and cuz it was ugly looking >.> I would have picked A ero A but it looked too Sport Compact like, but hey, hopefully it works out for you.

Posted by: fkn Apr 17 2008, 10:17 PM
I put on the aero A on 2 days ago...

LOVE IT...it slides a bit more than C - but i prefer it like that..

Its Top Speed has dropped in comparison to C just a tiny bit though...

Acell is GODLY lol

Should i use the Aero Kit A wing, or the GT straight wing?

Iv used both and have no difference in feeling, except the GT may have increased acell, but im not sure at all...

Posted by: shadowsuke Apr 18 2008, 06:31 AM
aero c is the tough set up for the gc8..

aero b, 3d gt-wing, cyclone.. and there you have it.. the toughest setting for the gc8 in battles

Posted by: ac101 Apr 18 2008, 07:05 AM
my currect setup for gc8 is....
aero A, vented hood, aero mirrors, 5f7, 3d wing...
good battle setup

Posted by: fkn Apr 18 2008, 07:18 AM
is the vented carbon fibre?

Posted by: fkn Apr 19 2008, 07:15 AM
Sigh..

From memory, the GDBf = E9 and GDBc = E8

Comparing the GDBf to GDBc
G-fs have a weaker 6th gear - Good handling, great acell cuz of 6 gears
G-cs have a weaker 5th gear - Good handling, great acell cuz of 6 gears

But these are minor differences
Ideally, the F is better than C, but practically for u, depends what u want outta ur car...

dude, you're totally WRONG!!!

GDBF has better 6th gear, handling is more like E8 because it grips better.

GDBC has better 5th gear, handling is more like E9 because it slides more.

i sorta can't agree on that......e8 has higher accel n lacks the precision e9 has...but really has the accel edge...

both gdbf and e9 are precision cars to me...

The Gc8 is a scooby, but unlike the GDB series...it has a better look..

For those who use to play initial D or watched the series...it is similar to Buntas car...

GC8 FTW

Posted by: BNR34NISMO Apr 22 2008, 05:25 PM
i forgot, but do they have the GC8 type r version in wmmt3? cuz i know there a GC8 but wondering if they had Type-R version, i found a Type RA though. thanks.

Posted by: fkn Apr 22 2008, 05:43 PM
Nah, the Type R is the one that Bunta uses from Initial D...

The RA is the GC8 version 6 i think, im not too sure

Im not to sure what the GDB-F/C would be considered, im not a major fan of them lol

Posted by: BNR34NISMO Apr 22 2008, 05:59 PM
the GC8 bunta uses in ID is version V not VI, the GC8s in wmmt series are version VI. i ono wat version(RA or Type-R) bunta uses in ID mainly cuz i dont care. GDBs im sure there normal sti then the spec c versions like GDB-C, but i was just wondeirng if the 2 dr GC8 in WMMT2/3 is the Type R version or not.

Posted by: fkn Apr 22 2008, 07:23 PM
The GC8 in MT3 is the 4 door version - look at the dress up pics for confirmation of this lol...

I thought i had the GC8V too, but yeah, i got corrected by someone ages ago lol

So the GC8 isnt the Type R

Posted by: BNR34NISMO Apr 22 2008, 07:27 PM
i looked at the dres up pics and they were all 4dr. but i swear i remember seein a 2dr GC8 in wmmt2. i might be wrong though.

I wish it was!...it would have been smaller and had less weight!!

did you start ur GC8 from wmmt2 or wmmt3? jus like you started a yellow fd in wmmt3 and its a bathurst which was diff from wmmt2. lol

Posted by: fkn Apr 22 2008, 07:39 PM
Iv only started playin MT3 lol

I think i changed the colour to gun metal grey lol

Posted by: BNR34NISMO Apr 22 2008, 07:55 PM
no wonder ur fd is bathurst and mines aint. lol
they have gun metal now for fd in wmmt3? hell yea im makin another fd then. now, only if they had gun metal for r32 in wmmt3 like they do in real life. that would be straight up sexy!

Posted by: fkn Apr 22 2008, 09:10 PM
haha, i ment gunmetal grey for my GC8 lol

I started a yellow FD in light of keisukes FD, not because of the bathurst thing, i couldnt give an F about that lol

Gunmetal grey for the R32 would look tough as lol

Posted by: BNR34NISMO Apr 22 2008, 09:34 PM
yea i started a yellow fd cuz if initial d too lol. gun metal for GC8 still looks hella nice. its my favorite color for the GC8 in GT4. too bad they dont have gun metal as like an unlocked color. r32s in gun metal are jus hella nice..

Posted by: Youhei Apr 23 2008, 12:22 AM
Hmm...

I'm also a fan of the subaru GDB-C. I used it becoz most people used GDB-F becoz they say it's better. personally i dun give an F.

but i was wondering. Are there any GDB-C with 2 Door like GC8V?

thx for the info. grin2.gif

what rims you'll use depends on you... what you like your car to handle like... same as the kits/bonnet...

even if someone else here were to comment and say what they like, its no guarantee it'll work for you.

I'd suggest you try it out yourself, to find the best combination

(Personally though, from playing around with my team's gdb-c... WRC tarmac wheels, Aero A, gt-straight, carbon ducted bonnet)

If i'm not mistaken, a Legacy is pretty good though it doesn't quite have the same amount of handling that the GC8 does. But aside from that, you should go ahead and start one anyways.

Hah, also my main car.

Here's what I can say about the Alcyone SVX;
It probably has the highest top speed in the game, but you have to be very steady to use it properly. The 4 spd is a let down for some, but if you think about it, that means you only have 2 gears you need to work with once you start racing. 3 for cornering, 4 for straightaways. Very quickly you realize how destructive this car can really be. Another nice thing is it's pretty much impervious to collisions. Other players just waste their time when they try and push you around.

But feel free to think it's icky and not use it, it's lack of player is what makes it cool.

Also I've gotten mine up to 352km/h. You have to drive pretty much a perfect line on the wangan straight to achieve that kind of speed. Most people don't even know there is a line on the wangan.

I'll probably go play again today. I'll see if I can hit it again, it was one of those one in a million chances I pulled it off. It was also during a battle, not a TA, so boost may have had something to do with it.

boost doesn't change your speedo, it just makes you go faster. Your speed will remain the "same"

and if you can hit 352, Alcyone's will be ruling the wangan times. instead, there are only 4 or 5 up there.

347, max.

It struggled at 350, made 351, and I caught a glimpse of 352 before it started going down.

that's the place you'll hit your car's top speed...

only time you'll break those speeds is story mode, when you're being pushed along by the Blackbird/Devil Z

even with boost, car's speed doesnt change tho. Like how if a guest challenges a FT car, the guest can be going at 23X compared to the 30X of the FT, but then still be catching up.

If a person who has boost hits him from behind, the speedometer will act like that since you're not on boost so it will show the "real" speed. I've gone 350 many times in battle because of that.

Shadow pretty much summed up what I think was going on. There was some boost involved and such. Now that I'm aware we use TA as the benchmark, my argument becomes invalid. Sorry.

Truth be told, there's no action on the TA boards at our arcade. It's all about the ghost mode.

Well its really upto u....go for wat ya want in terms of looks...

In terms of handling...my suggestion for the WRX series is either the enkei rc-t4 or the yokohama advan rcII or forged rims

aero kit is upto u, but usually C is heaviest and slides least, but A is lightest but slides most...

carbon hood and wing is upto u

yoko RCII
carbon hood duct (if im not wrong)

wing yet to decide..


can anot aR?

Umm...ok...

I guess the first thing u gotta do is decide what u wanna do with the car itself, as in, make it faster in the straights but slide more, or slower in straights but slide less...

It all depends on ur drive style...and the cars specs...

but that sounds like a good set up for battle, but be careful with rammers, as ur settings will give u mild protection...but then again, defensive driving can counter that

Go the GT straight wing, its a good wing for turning, but i have no idea wat it does for acell and top speed...my guess is that it lowers it slightly

Honestly, I'd say give it a go, and see what you like..

coz we dont know what you're looking for, whether you want grip, drift, etc etc etc

oh~ thx thx for the guidelines..turned.gif

I see..

I more into grippy ones as top spd doesnt really matters to me.. I prefer playing at NBL and C1 turned.gif

and sometimes top spd also not much..if unlucky last min bang on traffic also useless..=P

ok! i will test out the wing when i get my car..=x

hi! since you guys talk about gdbc, just want to ask what setup should be used when doing TA in yoko up? thanks smile.gif

LOL...same set up?

Having a TA set up just for one course is pretty lame IMO...u wanna just have one set up thats very flexible...

Although, since u wanna specialize in yoko, Aero B looks alright for u...apparently its the best for all scoobys despite its looks...

GT straight wing, Carbon hood and the previously mentioned rims would be alright for yoko...but if u get challenged on another course, u COULD be in trouble...

Most people would agree that having a single set up for all courses is the best way to go, gives u flexibility for everything

I agree that having a single setup for all courses is the best, but i just want my car to have a slight advantage when doing TA in yoko. laugh.gif

Anyways, thanks for the info.. I'll try this setup. happy.gif
