#1LevanzzPosted 12/1/2010 6:55:00 PM
So, what is the usual mileage that a car need these 2 procedure?

Well I don't have an excat mileage on the Engine overhaul but the Chassis Repair can be done if you slam into about 2-3 walls full speed. Or if you hit walls alot maybe inb a couple of races

actually the chassis repair u can do after 1 race regardless of whether you crashed or not. its advisable NOT to do it untill you ultimatly get problerms

Like my viper after many races and many many crashes had his right front wheel lock up in left turns and i fixed it with that.

the engine takes a long time aswell, but wasnt noticable to me.

You can do the engine overhaul right after you buy a used car. Change the oil too. For some reason, all the dealers sell their cars with dirty oil.

i did one race in my Murc SV- and afterwards it only had 640ish hp... i changed the oil and now it has 675.

Is there a way to tell if your chassis needs to be overhauled? Like is there a meter or something? I've also heard the chassis overhaul is based on milage like the engine and it doesnt matter if you crash or not. I'm not sure though.

The old oil trick still works in GT5

if you buy/win a car, even if it has zero miles on it, an oil change will always give it a bump to it's "true" hp potential

so although you'll find a skyline with 276 in the dealer, a quick oil change will raise it drastically

as for the chassis and engine rebuilds, I'd suggest it after a substantial amount of racing

I'm thinking along the lines of like thousands of miles of hard racing built up

In GT4 you would only notice it if you hammered on the car for days literally, I would run the 24 hours of nurburgring once and it' would be fine

But after the 3rd time the handle would go away and it would need a refresh.

Going from standard car oil to performance oil I think. Makes sense.
