    This FAQ was written solely and entirely by me, Wayne Fincher. It is subject to
    any and all applicable copyrights. This FAQ may be hosted on any site
    featuring collections of gaming FAQs so long as the FAQ is not modified in any
    way and is available in it's entirety.
    
    
    *******************************************************************************
    Assumptions and Guidelines  pw002
    *******************************************************************************
    
    While I know that there are people who can outrun the Formula Gran Turismo
    with a Fiat, and then go on to flame the rest of us for suggesting
    strategies that suggest using a more powerful and highly upgraded car, this
    FAQ is intended to be useful to the rest of us 'normal' people who can't get
    200 A-spec points on every race. I'll be the first to admit that there are a
    few 1 A-spec point races that I have a hard time with.
    
    This guide was written for two reasons. Number one, I needed a concise list of
    all the races and which cars could win those races easily. Secondly, I needed
    to know what upgrades were needed in order to win with those cars. I am not
    going to include any suspension setups as I do not tune my car's suspensions,
    and everyone has a different preference. I will list all upgrades I use, and I
    will not use suspension upgrades unless they come with the car, and then I
    will leave the default settings. All cars get an oil change right off the bat.
    
    Auto stability will be turned off on all cars, and traction control will be set
    either to 0 or 1 depending on the car. I'll leave it up to you to decide how
    you want to set up your driver assist options. On occasion I will suggest a
    transmission setup. This will be rare since most transmissions have default
    settings that work well. It should be assumed that a transmission upgrade will
    use the default settings unless otherwise noted. Note that I am not using GT3
    save game data, so I will be starting with 10.000 credits.
    
    By following the guide, you will always have enough money to buy the cars and
    upgrades that I ask you to buy when I ask you to buy them. You shouldn't have
    to race any races more than once, and you shouldn't have to sell any cars.
    However, if you want to take advantage of things like the Toyota RSC Rally Raid
    Cars '02 265.624 credit selling price, go right ahead. I'll never ask you to
    buy used cars, except when it is necessary, because they aren't always
    available. I intend for people to be able to reference this guide at anytime
    during their GT4 career, and for the cars I list to be available at all times.
    
    This guide is not intended to be the most efficient way to beat the game. Some
    people say buying as few cars as possible is the most efficient. Others say
    spending the least amount of money is the most efficient. And still others say
    that beating the game in as little time as possible is most efficient. This
    guide is mainly intended as a reference as to which cars can win in each
    particular race, and what upgrades those cars need. The walk through was
    included because I needed to play through the entire game in order to compile
    the information I needed, so I decided to give some advice as to the order in
    which to do all the races. Putting in the walk through also would serve as a
    justification for using any particular car instead of another.
    
    Last but not least, I can not guarantee that you will win every race with the
    setups I'm suggesting. It is possible that a car will show up in any given
    race, that I did not race against myself. For instance, in the Boxer Spirit
    race, a Yellow Bird shows up every now and then. The Subaru I used can win the
    Boxer Spirit races without the turbo upgrade, but it may not win against the
    Yellow Bird. It is possible that I might not have raced against the Yellow
    Bird and thus I would not have recommended a turbo upgrade. If you run into
    a situation like this, let me know and I'll update this guide with the proper
    credit, of course. In general though, you might try getting more upgrades. I
    didn't max out the upgrades on many cars at all, so that should work.
    
    Doing this might cause you to run out of money, so I would suggest doing a
    rally race or two. Before you spend all your money, consider that you may need
    to buy dirt tires for the Toyota Rally Raid car. I didn't recommend getting the
    dirt tires for it early on since the money was needed for other races, but
    having that car early on did allow for such occurrences as was outlined in the
    previous paragraph since you could either just sell the car, or get dirt tires
    and do more rally events. I doubt that a problem like this will occur though,
    since it would have to happen before money becomes readily available.
    
    
    
    Here's how I formated the race information
    _______________________________
    Name of the Race               |
    The car I used to win the race |
    Any upgrades I used will       |
    be listed here                 |

    Race 2 Qualify
    MoV 0'00.000
    Race 3 NP
    MoV apx 00 seconds
    
    Prize: Obviously, the car you win for winning the race.
    
    NP and Qualify says that I made a pit stop or qualified for that race.

    Apx = approximately
    
    MoL = Margin of Loss
    Yes, I did loss some races. Case in point, the GR World Championship is near
    impossible to complete with just one care. I recommend using a LM Prototype car
    and the Formula Gran Turismo in order to secure wins in all the races of that
    championship.
    
    MoV = Margin of Victory
    This indicates how much faster I completed the race than the second place
    finisher.
    
    NP = No pit stop
    This only applies on the GT World Championship in the Professional Races.
    
    ??? = This means that B-spec Bob finished the race when I wasn't watching, or
    I was too into racing the race myself and didn't get a figure before the race
    was over. This does mean that I was at least 15 seconds ahead though, since
    anything less than that would show up at the end of the race.

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Licenses  pw005
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    The first thing to do is get licensed. We're not going to concern ourselves
    with gold or silver prizes, the bronze prizes will do just fine. In order to
    start off right, we're going to need the NISMO 270R from the IA License, so try
    to get all the way to IA. If you can't get the IA license then I'm sincerely
    sorry because you are going to need it to compete in Extreme
    races and many more races.
    
    B License Prize:               Volkswagen Lupo 1.4 '02
    A License Prize:               Pontiac Sunfire GXP Concept '02
    International B License Prize: NIKE One 2022
    International A License Prize: NISMO 270R '94

    Preparations for Beginner Events  pw006
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Ok, now that we have that NISMO 270R, let's begin our preparations for the
    Beginner Events at the Rally Races. We're going to pick up a few cars that will
    open up many new races. We'll also be able to win a quarter million credits in
    under ten minutes, so our money problems will be a thing of the past. After
    completing our preparations, you will have all but two cars you'll need for the 
    Beginner Events.

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Now it's time to move on to the Beginner Events. We've acquired all the cars we
    need to complete the Beginner Events except for a convertible and a truck.
    I would hold off on getting the Miata and the Dodge Ram until you get to those
    races where you need them, since if you are only doing the races I've listed,
    you will not have enough money to get all the upgrades until you factor in the
    money you win from the Beginner Events.

    A word of caution, if you are unfortunate enough to have to race against the
    AC car, you may want to get a Supercharger and the Racing Brakes. I did race
    against the AC car without the Supercharger or the Racing Brakes and obtained
    the MoV's you see below. The AC car usually gets pole position, so you may
    want to qualify. I however, did not qualify, and the AC car pulled out to a
    7.5 second lead at the Ring. It took me half the race just to catch up.

    i just want to say that on tsukuba wet |
    rallies you can make it easier with    |
    super soft tires. There is no tire     |
    damage and your grip is vastly         |
    increased to make it very easy.        |

    This where we are really going to start putting credits into the bank. I've
    done these races out of order because I wanted to get the MINOLTA fast, but
    first I challenged myself with a very close match up at Grand Valley.
    Obviously, you can do the El Capitan race first and then come back to
    Grand Valley and smash the competition with the MINOLTA. As for the El
    Capitan race, the Nissan OPTION is tough to handle. A more sterile car for
    this race, while still being totally capable of winning easily, is the CIEN.
    It is worth noting that the Sarthe II race is widely believed to be best raced
    with the Mazda 787B. If you want to spend 3.5 mil credits on that, go ahead.
    All I can say is my MoV of 10 laps with the MINOLTA, most of which were
    achieved by B-spec Bob, speaks for itself.

    Note: Some people have had problems with the MINOLTA when B-specing this race.
    Here is an alternate setup using the Black 787B. This car is available in the
    used car lot from day 694-700, 1394-1400, and so on and so forth. I'm assuming
    that the Mazda 787B Race Car that is available new from the Mazda dealer will
    work as well.
    
    Credit goes to Han_the_Dragon from the GameFAQs GT4 board for this setup.

    In B-spec mode, race all the time at pace 3 and finish the race. 
    
    And some people here (GameFAQs board) did it with a bone stock 787B in
    Super-Hard R1 tires and some suspension tuning.
    
    But my setup was a bit different, I used the Black 787B, with an Oil Change,
    Turbine Stage 4 (that a lot of people will say is unnecessary, but I think that
    in the case of this car it is actually good, since it doesn't increase fuel
    consumption to much and gives some extra power), Racing Tires: Hard (R3) Front,
    Super-Hard (R1) Rear (as I already stated), all other things were stock: gear
    box, suspension, downforce...
    
    I think I won by 2 or 3 laps (and it was 100% in B-spec), I don't remember for
    sure because I did it almost 2 years ago (actually I did it about 1 month or so
    after getting the game, and I got it in the release day...)
    
    But, if you are racing the entire race A-spec, anything that is a Group C or
    LMP car can win it (actually some people won it with RX-8 LM and some other
    cars like that, but those cars weren't maxed and their setups were max A-spec
    races, so those guys were highly skilled players.
    
    And it's correct to say that the setup will work with both used and new 787B.
    
    
    Thanks Han_the_Dragon for the info.

    Notes: I would recommend getting a new MINOLTA for this race. It would also be
    a good idea to hook up with some Nitrous too. I cannot recommend a setup here
    that will guarantee a win in all of the races. Winning all races here will
    require precise racing skills, preservation of tires, and an excellent
    knowledge of the circuits. The Formula Gran Turismo is another option, but
    winning at the Speedway and at Sarthe will be extremely difficult.

    The best strategy in this series of races is to get the lead as fast as
    possible and then hold it. In races such as the Grand Canyon, this is
    essential. You do not want to let the computer pass you. For the snow races,
    wall riding may be the best bet.

    i just want to say that on tsukuba wet |
    rallies you can make it easier with    |
    super soft tires. There is no tire     |
    damage and your grip is vastly         |
    increased to make it very easy.        |

    Notes: I did not race against either of the Chaparrals. The Chaparral 2D Race
    Car '67 can win against the Chaparrals, but it will be difficult. Racing
    against those cars will require precise handling, and the Chaparrals are
    prone to becoming instable.

    Notes: This race is a Mercedes one make race. We will need the prize car for
    the next race. This strategy comes straight from Havok3595 and the Minimal Buys
    FAQ. While I tried to use different strategies than Havok3595, this one was
    just too good to pass up.

    Note: Obviously, more upgrades will make this race easier. Caution should be
    used when adding more horsepower. The main problem I had was the instability of
    the car. I would suggest upgrading the transmission and further reducing the
    weight of the car. Adding a rear wing would also be helpful. This is one of the
    hardest one makes.

    Note: This is THE hardest one make race in the game. Besides nitrous, I have
    put every upgrade onto the car I can think of, besides the suspension upgrade
    and the brake controller. Don't hesitate to go for the nitrous, it will
    certainly help. If my setup doesn't get the reader a victory here, there are
    two things I can recommend. One, practice with the car. This car can definitely
    win this series without requiring "perfect" driving skills. Two, tune the car.
    I don't know what settings will work for everyone, so try out a few different
    things. Id recommend the gtvault.com website for some good setups. Seems like
    there are more setups for the Turbo version of this car. If you do decide to go
    with the Turbo version, you'll be able to use the setup by Fumes. His setups
    are highly recommended. Personally, I went with the non-turbo version because
    it has a higher power to weight ratio and a higher torque to weight ratio than
    the Turbo version.

    At this point, it would be helpful to finish up the license tests. All that
    should be needed is a Bronze Super License.
    
    Super License Test = Mercury Cougar XR-7 '67
    
    I went ahead and won a new MINOLTA Toyota 88C-V Race Car '89 since the old one
    has over 12,000 miles on it. Most of these races are difficult and will require
    a good level of racing expertise. I'd recommend B-specing a few of these races.
    Notable races to B-spec: the entire Formula GT World Championship, and the last
    race of the World Circuit Tour. I used the FGT in the World Circuit Tour. The
    FGT can only go a lap and a half at the Nurburgring before the tires get worn,
    unless you can get tire comparable to the AI.

    Notes: Make sure you qualify for the Nurburgring race. This is one of those
    races that will kick you in the pants if you're not careful. Being able to
    complete the notorious Mission 34 is not required, since I have not been able
    to do so. I spun out three times in this race. The first one was magical!
    I did a complete 360 without losing a whole lot of speed. I was hit by the
    computer in the middle of my second spin out and that luckily put me back on
    course! The third one wasn't so lucky for me. This happened just before the
    final straight, and the computer was able to pass me up. Thanks to Nitrous and
    a having a faster car, I passed the computer on the straight and won the race.
    
    I don't think it is necessary to change the Transmission Auto setting for the
    Test Track, but I do recommend it.

    Notes: If you do B-spec this championship, keep the speed setting on 4. It will
    take a while for B-spec Bob to get the lead. It would definitely be helpful to
    stick around for the pit stops and make a selection from the menu. If you
    don't, you will lose a few seconds each pit stop. It is nearly impossible to
    win at the Super Speedway. Neither me or B-spec Bob could accomplish that feat.
    I'm going to go back there with the MINOLTA Toyota 88C-V Race Car '89. That
    will surely guarantee a win.

    Havok3595 and the Minimal Buys FAQ
    
    I picked up a few general things. There are some similarities in our
    strategies, but after having played GT4 for years now most of what I put in
    this FAQ came from my own experience and from reading the forum. BTW, Havok3595
    has brought some awesome strategies out in the Minimal Buys FAQ.
    
    *****
    Ebony Ivory and shin8 and their respective Prize Car lists
    
    Mainly used them to rule out certain strategies.
    
    *****
    SonGouki and the Event/Race Guide
    
    Although this FAQ was written for GT3, it still has some relevant info. In my
    opinion, this was the definitive GT3 FAQ as it provided a means to determine
    what was the best car for any race. The only drawback was that it didn't
    suggest a means for obtaining the cars and didn't suggest any upgrades with
    which one could easily win all the races.
