this just made me think how scary accurate the gran turismo 5 tracks are to the real ones.....and also made me want to race my 370 in gran turismo 5 on this track...question though, why did you come in so shallow on the last turn on the last 2 laps?

What do you mean by shallow, apexing too early? Like around 8 min mark?
I kept trying different lines to see if I could go any faster through the last turn before the straight. It all came down to just not late braking. I will have more vids up.
This was my first time at Laguna Seca and never played any GT5 or any games before hands. I just watched a few vids, I didn't even get to do a ride along or lead and follow to see what the lines were. I just learned as I went....

exactly, heck i wouldnt have done nearly as good as you if it were me out on that track...the best i've done so far with a stock 370Z on laguna seca on GT5 was a 1:46 lol...but boy do i wish for the day the Z is paid off and i can afford to do stuff like this in real life, oh well just another year and a half to go and she'll be nearly paid off if not paid off all together. great laps though if you dont mind me saying, that last turn i feel ya on though, it's even tricky in GT5 getting around that thing...think the fastest i've went around that turn in GT5 was around 40mph lol

hahah yeah, u should try hitting up the track, its just WAY too much fun, problem is $$$$$, I've been hooked and can't stop going, going to streets of willow on Saturday......

I actually thought I could have done about 2 secs faster at Laguna, I really need to get my alignment dialed in... too much camber in the rear. I almost ran into someone on that same corner, and also the first corner after the straight.....'Another tracking buddy wasn't so fortunate, he rear ended a 911 on that last turn due to them braking too hard...

Some more pics from Laguna Seca, my buddy's m3 infront, he killed it out there he run a 1.44-1.45!! The low power on the 370z really shows at this track!

speaking of camber, i tried asking this in another thread but no one wanted or cared to answer, my Z seems to be wearing the tires on the outside rather than the inside which leads me to believe that the camber specs are out of whack on the rear tires, would i be right in assuming that they are? im still on the stock potenzas, but if i can get a few thousand more miles on them by getting the camber dialed in that would be awesome, just seems like a waste seeing as when i look at them the inside of the tires have alot more tread left on them.

is it all around? take a pic and upload of a front and rear tire wear. But yes, you will need to have more camber all around if you are wearing the outer edges. But it could also be your tires are under inflated as well.

Are your wheels pretty much straight when you look from the back?

it's just on the rears that it is wearing like that, the front are wearing completely even on both sides, but yes when i look at the rear the tires do look completely straight like there is no negative camber at all. oh and forgot to mention i check tire pressure every few weeks to make sure its exactly at 35psi, so tire pressure should be ok.

another vid, I passed 3 cars right after turn 10, came in too hot, didn't even have room to setup for this turn, didn't even want to bother saving it since 3 cars were behind me.....
