I can always out accelerate the competition with it, but it just doesn't handle for dookie compared to the lightness of the racers. And the Xanavi 350 Z I have doesn't have the HP to keep up.
You need to beat the Gran Turismo series in B Spec, which gives you the race Zonda Z12. Modify it and you can win the Daytona & Like the Wind challenge with some patience. This unlocks the Toyota Minolta race car that you can use to beat the majority of the other events (All Stars).

I really just wish it was easier to get some of the cars from the used car dealership. I spent 40 minutes the other night going in and out of races real quick to finally find the Audi TT Touring edition to do the Extreme German challenge. It would be nice if I could at least see events I haven't unlocked to know exactly what type of car I'll need for it. Kinda pissed because in that time I passed up on the Suzuki Escudo Pikes Peak and the Toyota race care (red one) from previous GT games I loved.

I'm almost up to level 24 A Spec and level 29 B Spec currently. After you unlock the Toyota & Like the Wind you can score 70K for a 3 minute 22 second race. Needless to say that money isn't an issue for cars at that point. I just want my freaking Indy car so I can do the Indy 500 Endurance race right now.

Anybody see if the Xmas cars are up on the US PSN store yet? I saw them on the Japanese store earlier today.

Just got my copy of GT5 last night. Two hours to update and install and I got to play for a whole half hour. I did notice the Christmas jazz. I bought myself a Toyota I've never heard of that looks like it should wind up in the back and won my first race! It was pretty fun

Was it a Vitz, Levin or Trueno?

I noticed you playing, I'll see if I can gift you some cool car before I take off for vacation.

Yeah, I really do need to go through more of the B-spec events. My racer is a joke though. I'm so much better than he is!!!

Anyone wanna gift me a Lamborghini? I thought I could get one for around 100,000 to compete with in the challenge, but no such luck.

was just wasting time on you tube looking up gt5 strategies and car setups and as usual one topic leads to another and and I stumbled onto this. Pretty scary stuff, amazingly as you can see in the 2nd vid the driver of the ferarri survived.

Here's where I'm at: I have taken the TVR Pinoy gave me, modded it and completely dominated all of the races I could in it. I have a Vitz that I modded and won all of those races easily. I modded a Mazda Miata and last night I bought the 69 Camaro. I raced one race with the Camaro and it sucked, so I modded it and the acceleration and control are much better, but my max speed is only up about 10mph at around 134mph. I upgraded the 4 speed tranny to a 5 speed and that did not do much for me. What can I do to get the max speed up? Is it spend lots of money to get minimal improvement? If so, I'll save my money for something else.

I'm at a-spec level 9 and I'm out of races until I unlock pro. I have enough credits to do it, but I don't want to buy a new car and mod it just to win a race or two in the circuits I haven't completed yet.

So I'm at a point where I need to dick around with the license tests, specials or b-specs and I don't really care for any of these modes.

I don't really understand b-specs. My driver completely dominates when he races my Camaro and TVR, but he can't crack the top 5 in the Vitz races. It's the same Vitz I used. What am I doing wrong? Giving commands does not seem to do anything. When can I get new drivers?
