$880,000 IN 10 MIN.

You need a audi a4 Touring Car for this. Tune it up with every you can and go to european events and go to DTM Maister Race. (short form) Each race is $15,000 for first. Go to b-spec. Put on 5 push Hard and overtaken, then push R1, L1+RightButton to make race *3 times faster. If you win championship you get $75,000 and a car that you can sell for $730 000.

It's true see= 5 races times $15,000=75,000+$75,000=150000+730,000=880000

30 minute millionaire

I, and many others got stuck at the GT world championship because you need a one million dollar car.Well, someone told me a way to get the money in just 30 minutes. I didn't want any fellow seekers getting stuck here so I wrote a mini guide.



First, go to special condition events.

Next, Do the second set of two races (Capri rally, easy) with your best car. Any car will work here, so just choose the car you are best with. If you don't have a good car, then just win the First set of 2 races for an awesome car.

When you beat the 2 races, you will get a Toyota rally car which you can sell for about 265,000 Credits. Beating the race four times will make you a millionaire!

Just in case you need pictures of the car, here are 2:

Aeroplanes in GT4

Go into Circuit de la Sarthe 2 in Endurance Events in GT mode (this is the circuit with the very long straight with no chicanes on it). Start the 24 hour endurance in 'A' spec mode. Just before the race says 'START' look to the top of the screen (where your laps and times are). There should be a formation of fighter planes flying over you with coloured smoke coming out of them (They form colours of red, white, and blue).

Beginners guide to fast $$$

1. When you get a fast enough car(it's not very hard), go to Special Conditions and race in the second easy race. You should win a Toyota RSC Rally Raid Car. Do the race three times. Sell the three cars that you won.
2. With that money buy an Audi A4 Touring Car and tune it with everything.(I reccomend if you don't have enough money then get some more to finish tuning your Audi)
3. Next go to the European Races and enter the DTM (the German one). Put it on B-Spec, 5, and overtake. Then push R1 then L1+Right to make the speed faster. Do that for all 5 races. When you win sell the Mercedes(I also got a Jaguar race car). You'll get $763 000 or something like that plus $15 000 times 5, thats $75 000 and $75 000 for winning the Championship.
4. VOILA OVER $900 000. Oh and one more thing... CANADA RULES!!!!!

When doing an endurance race, First run in A-spec mode to get yourself into first place. Drive until you need to pit for fuel or tires, then put the game into B-Spec mode to gain A-spec and B-Spec points. This also gives you a break to stretch and eat a bit.

Here is a Way to get quick money and get off to a fast start in Gran Turismo 4. When you start off transfer your licenses and 100,000 credits from your GT3 game over to your new GT4 game. After your done with that buy the 05' Mustang and tune it as much as you can with the money you have. Then go to Special Condition Events and then go to the Capri Rally and win both races. You make 5,000 credits a race and when you win both of them you win the Toyota RSC Rally Raid Car, you can sell if for 265,624 credits. You can do this over and over.

3. Go to U.S.A.- Stars and Stripes compotition.
go through these races in B-Spec mode go the fastest you can and overtake right at the start then move the viewing to 3X.(this will get it done quicker.

Get the Most Out Of Your Cars

To get the most out of your cars, you need to FULLY TUNE. Use a fast money guide to get at least 200,000 Cr. This works for any cars, except tuned cars. (Which are pre-tuned. For race cars, there will only be turbo kits 3, 4, and weight reduction 3. Get the Turbo kit 4. It costs 80,000 cr.)
For starters, Get Racing Exhaust.*+ I like to get both brakes, so you can ajust racing brakes. For engines, Get everything you can except Nitrous.*+ Transmission: Get the full upgrade of everything, and also buy the carbon driveshaft and YCS controller.*+ Turbo is essential for multiplying horsepower, so get everything you can.*+ Full Custimazation in suspension is needed for you and your car, so BUY IT!*+ Tires: If you are still on sunday cup, or clubman cup, buy the soft or medium tires, but not the racing ones. These are too expensive. Once you're comfertable with racing, buy the r1 or r2 tires. You need these for endurance races. Rally Cars, Go ahead and buy both snow and dirt tires. Also, Get only Wheight Reduction stage 1.


DO NOT GET THE RIGITY ROLLCAGE BARS! THIS WILL MAKE YOUR CAR UNDERSTEER! IF YOU WANT TO INCREASE RIGITY, JUST THE REFRESHER PLAN!

*If you see original, buy that instead.

+If you use lower stages (i.e. turbo kits, NA engine tuning) than the highest, you're wasting your money. This is why you need 200,00 credits, to buy the max tuning stages. The turbo kit stage 4 costs 80,000 cr, so this is why you need lots of creds.

Getting the maximum speed out of your car

Although this does not contribute to your game percentage or anything, this is an interesting thing I want to share. If you want to go really fast with your car on the test course, without any sort of cheating devices the do this:

First, you'll need a high-performance racing car. Something like a Toyota GT1, Nissan R92CP, Bentley Speed 8, Minolta race car etc. The Formula Gran Turismo will not be as good here because you can't get NOS for it. When you have your car, go to it's manufacturer and buy the following parts: Buy a turbo of as high a stage as possible, buy NOS, buy the racing super soft tyres and change the oil. The power of your car should be around 1100 HP.

With the settings, you'll need to get as much downforce on the back of your car and as little as possible on the front of your car (usually, it's 38 to 88 with most racing cars). The suspension settings are pretty important as well. Set the spring rate to 4.0 on both front and rear and set the ride height as low as possible too. The driving aids should all be at 0. Your NOS setting should be at it's maximum. The gearbox settings can be the trickiest bit. First of all, you need to set the auto ratio all the way to 25. Setting the auto ratio after you do the individual gears is a big mistake because the auto ratio has it's own default setting which automatically switches your gear ratios to that setting. With the gears, if you move the indicator to the left you'll get more maximum speed and less acceleration. Moving it to the right does the opposite. Set the final gear ratio to about 2700 and try out your car. Get through the first straight and use the NOS once you get to the back straight, at around 380-400 kph (237-250 mph). When the front end of your car starts lifting up, it means that the settings are working and your car will start quickly speeding up. By the end of this straight you should at least get to 530 kph (331 mph).

To make your car go faster, you'll need to play around with the gear ratios. If you notice that by the end of the straight your car doesn't get to the end of the final gear, this means that your final gear setting is set too much to the left. Moving it to the right can fix the problem, but if you get to the end of the straight with your final gear stopping at the red line, then moving it slightly to the left will make your car go even faster. Also, try playing around with the individual gear ratios.

The fastest I've gone with this trick is 585 kph (366 mph), with the Minolta race car. Below are the gear ratios you could use for your Minolta (if you have one) as a setting that you could play around with and hopefully even go faster than mine. My gear ratios are:
1st gear: 3825
2nd gear: 2328
3rd gear: 1601
4th gear: 1101
5th gear: 0858
6th gear: 0800
Final gr: 2500
Auto setting: 25
Also, remember to set the other settings according to my instructions.

getting up and running.

A good way to woop ass on gt4 is to complete the licences. it may take long but try to get all golds in B, A liscences Once you do this you will be awarded with some nice cars.
sell and dispose of all the cars apart from the nissan skyline pace car, keep the money and then do the capri rally easy under special conditions, do this twice and then sell the two rally cars and the skyline. The liscences are the only hard part in this, but will make you a better driver!

Once you have sold all your cars use the money to buy the mercedes that is priced around the 190,000 mark tune it up to the max apart from the tyres or the body strengthening kit. Lower the suspention heights as low as they will go and then raise the stifness of the suspension to 13.8 front and rear (the first suspention setting) change the auto gear setting to 17 nos on full power, and the downforce cetings to 30 front and rear. then enter the mercedes race one that requires an (A) liscence and complete the three races. you will win a mercedes touring car.

Tune the mercedes with the stage four turbo and then set the suspention height as low as it will go, and the stiffness to 13.8 front and rear, and finally the auto gear ratio to 17. give the car an oil change. save the game and then enter the touring car meisterschaft in european events and do it on b-spec mode. on the first race set the pace of the car to 4 and then 3 for the rest.

keep doing this and selling your prize car each time until you have 4,500,000 credits and then buy the audi r8 race car, get nos, stage 4 turbo, super soft tyres and the body strenghthening kit.

Now for the fun part! (and final part)
Lower the susspention settings as low as they will go, and the stiffnes to 14.8 front and rear, the nos on full power, auto gear setting to 22 the downfore on full front and rear, and leave the rest. get an oil change save the game.

Now test this beast of a car out on the nurbugring nordshleife and scream at the performance of the car!

Please email me with any questions and tell me what you think! (trust me, do everything as ive put here and there'll be no problems)

Have fun!!!

Good beginner car

If you have GT3, transfer credits and buy a late-90's used RX-7.try get one with the best output. Service it immediately, and trick it out with original suspension (last in the window), adjustable transmission, brakes etc-as much as your money allows. make sure you have at least stage 3 turbo, with a racing intercooler, and lighten the vehicle ap to stage 3 (stage 3 it gets a bit flighty and skittish to drive. To improve handling, get medium racing slicks, drop the suspension to at least 86mm, and soften the rear damper settings by one notch. Softer rear damping means better traction and less tail-happpiness. Also adust the camber to 2.5 front and at least 1.5 rear. This gives you better and sharper turn in, and good high speed stability. When racing on sports tyres, let them warm up for at least 2 laps before trying to be last of the late brakers, as the car doesn't like sports tyres with these settings. i have found they work well with slicks though, and you can nail the professional FR and Turbo leagues easily if you drive cleanly.paly around with the gear ratios and damper settings to improve the car to suit your style...my style involves late braking, and smooth, even application of the throttle from mid-corner to avoid drifting or hurting the tyres too much.

Good Starter Car

Okay first you'll need to transfer 100,000 credits from GT3. After that here's what you do.

While the Dodge Viper SRT 10 is also a good starter car, I found the HPA Motorsports StageII R32 to be a great starter car for beginners. It only costs 32,000 which means you've got lots left to upgrade. It is a good starter car because it's 4WD...which evens out tire wear and slowing it down in a sense. 4WD also helps with traction and you are less likely to spin out. AS well as it being 4WD, it can also reach at least 540hp. Not bad huh?

good way to fast money!

first and only if you have played gt3 A-spec,
make sure you have over 100,000 credits and a and b license,
this TRANSFER will help with saving time so you don't have to spend a couple days trying to beat a and b license. (trust me.)

HOW TO TRANSFER LICENSES AND MONEY:

go to HOME then to STATUS, if you look at the bottom of the screen it should say TRANSFER then with the start button. if you are definitely sure that you have over 100,000 credits on gt3 then good for you. anyway, select yes and yes again, notice you will have whatever licenses that you have on gt3, and 110,000 credits.

STARTER CARS THAT WORK THE BEST:

all bmws that you can afford, all Audi's that you can afford,
chrysler 300 c hemi,
Nissan 350 z special edition,
ford mustang,
and also the dodge viper crt-10 from new cars and gts from classical

Great way to tune your car

This is a setting that works well with almost every car in the game.

1) Increase the spring rate. This makes the springs harder, and increases your speed.
2) Lower the car to a bit from the minimum. This greatly increases max speed.
3) Decrease shock bound to 3, and shock rebound to 5.
4) Set the camber to 3.5 in the front, and 3.0 in the back.
5) Set stabilizers to 3.
6) Increase downforce to the maximum.

How to get more BHP out of your car

Once you have modded your car with performance parts, instead of just heading off to race go to GT Auto first and have an oil change, i have found that just changing the oil can add 40+ BHP to your car even if its brand new.

kick-start your gran turismo 4 career

OK for all you people stuck at the beggining of their GT4 career doing races like the sunday cup again and again. well here's how you get to the advanced stuff fast.

when you start the game go to the liscence center and get all the liscences. it's hard but if you don't get them this won't work. don't worry to much about the special liscence but get it if you can, your going to need it.

Having attained all your liscences head over to the special conditions section and win the capri rally with the nismo you won from the IA liscence. you should win easily. when you win both capri rally events (normal and reverse) you win the toyota RSC rally raid car. use this to win the same rally tree more times and sell the three extra RSC's.

you should now have cr. 825,000. with it go and buy an abt auidi TT-R touring car. use the extra cr. to tune it up any way you want.

now enter the DTM (duetches touring car meistershift) with the audi TT-R. you should be able to win alll the races easily (providing you tuned up the car suffieciently). you will now be awarded the AMG Mercedes CLK-GTR race car which is a really good car.

Now you can win all the other races in GT4 always remebering that you can go and win the DTM in B-spec mode(which you can make three times fast) any time in less than ten miutes and sell the mercedes which, combined with the prizes you'll get 880,000 credits.

The overall benefit of this is that you can now enter the advanced races and win them easily with far superior tuned up cars because you've got over a milion cr. whenever you want.

So get out there and win this game.

Quick Guide from Beginning to End

You start with 10,000 bucks. Ignore this for now and go get your IA lisence. You'll win a nice nissan car. Use this to beat special condition event #1. Say hi to the nice super car. Use it to win special conditions event #2. Sell the rally car for 260,000 dollars. Use the money to buy a nice mercedes, I got the SL600. The SL65 is the obvious best but unfortunately it isn't allowed to enter the Silver Arrow event. The Legend of the Silver Arrow event is an event only inside Mercedes Benz Hall. Make sure you tune up your SL600 or whatever you got to a solid 800 horse power AND give it super soft tires along with nice breaks and customizable transmission. The main thing is the 800 hp and super soft racing tires though. Cars can always use more acceleration. Anyways you might need to do other races to get enough money for this so go ahead and kick some cars. Once you win the event you get a Mercedes Benz Touring car. Upgrade this one with turbos and enter it into the European Hall and go into the German event with a name that is in german. Win the first 4 races in Bspec and skip the last. You get a nice car that sells for 750,000. I recommend keeping one also because you can give it a turbo or super charger (I forget). Anyways get as much money as you want and just buy the cars you need to beat all of beginner and pro hall events. At this point nothing can stop you, the power of money is with you. Just keep buying the cars you need and beating all the races. Eventually you'll need an S lisence, no big deal go get it. Have fun.

What / What not to buy

Shelby Series One vs. Ford GT


Series one costs more than the GT, it costs 184,630 credits and is a challange to beat in the american series, with its 320 HP and 1200 kg.

GT is a MR beast. 550 raw HP and 1350 kg, the Ford GT is pure Supercar. Definatley beats the Series One all-around, at 149,880 Cred.

Chaparral 2D vs. 2J

2D is not 2 dimensional. At only 1,100,000, this car can easily be compared to the Gillet. A light wheight racecar at 420 HP and 925 KG is a no brainer!

2J looks more like a jet than a car. Another lightwheight beast, with 680 HP and 820 KG, this car is definatley a competitor to its bro, the 2D. With it's 1,200,000 cr, The 2J wins.

Mini Cooper S vs.Lotus Elise

Cooper S has made a comeback, with 160 Hp and 1120 Kg, the cooper s is an all- around car. FF and priced at 26,790, It would be a Perfect starter car.

The Elise has some tricks up its sleeve, too. 120 Hp but 715 KG and MR, The Elise is good Competition. The downside is that it's a little expensive, at 41,060. Because of its price, the Elise makes a tie.

Tell me if you want more comparisons since i am happy to make more!

Glitches

Back to top

ASM and TCS on memory card cars in 2 player battle

GT4 doesn't allow you to use ASM and TCS on cars saved on the memory card on 2 player battle. Here's a glitch that allows you to use them on 2 player:

1)Go to 2 player battle, then choose any track.
2)On the cars screen, go to select car on controller 1
3)Choose any car from arcade mode(not from the memory card)
4)On driving options, put ASM and TCS on, and choose your transmission and tires and confirm
5)On the cars screen, go to change on controller 1 and switch to your memory card car
6)On driving options, don't change anything, just choose ok
7)Now go to select car on controller 2, and choose any arcade mode car
8)On driving options, choose transmission and tires(here the option for ASM and TCS won't appear, but don't worry) then confirm
9)Go to change car on controller 2 and choose your memory card car
10)Finally, start the race, and ASM and TCS will be turned on on both cars

This trick can also be used for installing racing tires on normal/tuned/concept cars. Just choose as the arcade car a racing car and, on driving options, put any racing tires, then when choosing the memory card car don't mess with the tires on driving options.

Easter eggs

Back to top

Drive Through The Photographers

To make this easter egg work, you need to have a car that can drive on the Grand Canyon course. (you'll need dirt tires.) Select photo mode. After you finish 1 lap of the canyon, quit. Now while you are watching the replay, when you see a photographer running back to the fence, activate photo mode, then quit photo mode- the photographer should be where he was before, and you drive right through him!! Hope this works!!

Pit Lane Speeding

On the High Speed ring, go past the pit lane entrance near the last corner.
When you come out of the corner, turn to the left and you will see another entrance that you can use to enter the pit lane. Only this time there is no limiter and you can go where you want in it.

In arcade mode, select one of the following cars. You can unlock a special colour of these cars in Gran turismo mode.

-Daihatsu STORIA X4 '00 (Special Colour - Emerald Green Metallic)

-Toyota Vitz RS Turbo '02 (Special Colour - Orange Metallic)

-Aston Martin DB9 Coupe '03 (Special Colour - Super Gold)

-Triumph Spitfire 1500 '74 (Special Colour - Maroon Metallic)

-Any of the Secret Black Cars bought on the game week starting on day 694, then every 700 game days

-Black Formula Gran Turismo '04

It does not matter wether you have the special colour variant, so long as you have the car. Move your cursor over a car that only has one colour, but do NOT select it.

**WARNING**: The following step may take a few tries, as it requires good timing skills.
press the <img src="http://i.neoseeker.com/d/icons/ps/X.png" border=0 vspace=2 alt="" /> button then the <img src="http://i.neoseeker.com/d/icons/ps/Right.png" border=0 vspace=2 alt="" /> button almost instantly. It does not work if you are too slow or if you press the buttons simultaneously.
If you were quick enough, your cursor should move down off the screen and the preview thumbnails should also disappear. Navigate your way to a car that has a special colour and select it. The colours should scroll on to the screen, but the first colour has been represented as the colour of the car you activated the glitch from. Move your cursor to the last colour on the list and be amazed as that colour is the special colour of that car. You can now select that colour and carry on as usual.

2147483647 mph/kmph (Same cheat just like in gt3)

Before you start this cheat, you have to activate the codebreaker or action replay max code called Ultra nitrous. First, go to gran turismo mode. Next make sure you have a car that doesn't spin around while using the ultra nitrous code & go to the driving park. Then, select the course where the cones are everywhere. Now when your driving, look at the map, make sure your red dot (your car) goes into the bottom left corner of the whole area. Force the car through the wall by holding r1+x & suddenly, your car goes right trough the wall & just keep holding r1+x. When your wheels keep screeching, hold r1+x+right d-pad/left analog stick right+o. your car will acelerate super duper fast the speedometer glitches up by counting down & up repeatly. When your speedometer is stuck to 1 mph/kmph, it means your car is like 3 times the speed of light but you can also tell that on the left gauge below the gt symbol those digits went up stoped at 999999 under 1 sec though!

Note:Your game will freeze when you leave this cheat to long so watch out & also Don't save the game after doing this cheat, just turn the power off or reset.

Easy Formula 1 Car!!!

Once you get 25.0% game completion, get the Nissan Motul Pitwork Z from the Japanese GT championship (The longer one.) Once you get that car, give it the Stage 4 Turbo tuning. Also, don't forget to give it super hard racing tires. Ok, now for the boring part. Get in that car and go to Endurance races. Do the Nurburging 24H race. Your car should be better than all of theirs so just do B-Spec. Put the driver on 3 (Steady Pace) and Overtake. Leave your console on for the duration of the race. Your car should go in the pits by itself every 4 laps. If you can, monitor the race so you can click X3 view speed every time the car gets out of the pits. I am currently on lap 201 and have 3 Hours left (I think).

Glitch (?)

To do this you must have a fully tuned Ford GT '05. Anyway buy a Ford GT '05 and fully tune it up (if you already done this, skip this part). Now go to Fuji Speedway 80's (idk if this works in another track, so try this). Choose Free Run (it is cheap, only $5). Get to the Pit Straight, do a handbrake turn, reverse for 2-3 seconds, then accelerate. For some reaso the car will slightly lock its wheels and continue reversing, as if you were using both forward and reverse throttle at the same time! Odd.

My Personal Starting Car

In my opinion, the nest car to start with is the the Dodge Viper SRT10, which has a powerful 8.4litre engine and puts out around 450bhp at stock. You can only start with this car if you transfer the 100,000 credits from GT3, but if not then look for a Mazda RX-7 in the used car sections. Happy Racing =D
