    Yep Ferrari Gr4 is really nice to drive, Gr3 is awful in comparison.

    Quick question. In offline races, why wouldnít I crank the power ratio up as far as it will go?

    @Psiloc Some of the events you earn extra cash for reducing vehicle performance.

    20% bonus for each n100 less than the race maximum.

    Theyíre very candid with the server information.

    The connection problems the other day were due to PSN thinking the amount of GT Sport traffic was a DDOS attack. Resolved now.

    The Skyline on the dailies is good fun. Very slide happy when you knock the TC down.

    The A.I in one of the new Mazda cup races takes rubber banding to the extreme. I got into 1st place from 16th in one lap. The A.I car now in 2nd suddenly gets the ability to drive and stays with me however if I then slow down it overtakes and doesn't maintain the pace I was going at. Instead it slows down and soon crashes
    so I go even faster than my previous laps and within the lap I'll go from having a 4 second lead to 0.5.

    Well the G29 is amazing to use in GTS. Don't think it's made my laptimes better, but it does feel more realistic than pushing a stick around.

    Might dial down the FFB a bit, as it is a bit too much like hard work.

    Also, not a fan of the small but noticeable dead zone in the stearing. It's like the old Rack & Pinion in my 70s Land Rover! Might see if I can make it smaller

    That's a well known issue with the G29. It's one of the reasons I took mine back and got a T300 instead.

    Sweet!

    Only seem to manage to win the one make races as I usually post a decent time. Just can't get anywhere near pole for GR3/4 races.

    The only chance you have really is to look what car the top times have been set on (itís usually only 1 type) and set a time in the same car

    This is excellent, go to http://gran-turismo.com, login and view your profile. Make a note of your profile number from the end of the url.

    Then go to http://www.kudosprime.com/gts/stats.php?profile=1 and change the 1 in the url to your profile number (was mygranturismo.net). You can then view the history of your DR and SR ranking :p.

    A few facts about me :D

    - Played on 53 separate days
    - For 38 of those days Iíve had a SR of S.
    - My SR dipped recently to 80 (a few rough races), at 79 it would become A but is now on its way back up at 84. Maximum is 99.
    - My longest streak at 99 was 15 days.
    - DR rating of B for last 14 days
    - My Game Level of 30 is in top 6% of players.
    - Driven 9257km :o

    Two thirds of the way through the License tests and... yeah, this is chuffing excellent. Loading times are galling, and the interface is a little anachronistic, but it's really super compelling stuff. And that's just me against the clock - hardly done any races at all yet!

    I had a go with the VR stuff yesterday - it makes me wish they'd open up the racing to unlimited time trial because I round it much easier to hit the driving lines properly. As it is, you can barely see your lap times before the results page disappears.

    I have everything on gold except the last 8 tracks in the Circuit Experience. I did Nurburgring first... Suggest you do too if you come out of the mission Challenges with the last challenge (8-8) the last you did as it'll be fresh.

    I can't honestly fault this game at all. I. Haven't even dot the GT League yet. 50 hours game time for me. Don't do many online races now

    @scoobysi Ha, once down into C and below SR it's a damn lottery - half the field barely keeping the car on the track and the rest trying to ram you off of it :p

    Interesting Gr3 race round Brands today, 10 laps with 10x tyre wear. Tried Ferrari no pit stop, nightmare, like on ice by about lap 7, started 13th finished 18th. Next race in Porsche, again no pit stop, what a transformation, tyres felt fine whole race, started 9th and finished 3rd.

    @scoobysi I had one like that the other day, I donít have any idea how to manage fuel consumption in this game yet. Does things like shirt shifting and lift and coast cornering work in this?

    @superdelphinus it appears on the same widget as TC and BB in the appropriate races, you can adjust between 1 and I think 5, with 5 being lean. It tells you how many laps youíll get with the current setting but takes a little time to settle when you change it. Short shifting and lift and coast will work too but a lot harder :)

    With the Porsche round Brands at the moment I run mostly 2 using 1 occasionally.

    Youíre were very close to a DR of A on day 18.

    hmm, @Brands i've been pitting lap 6 or 7 so far with decent result,s not been brave enough to not pit, but had been curious about running leaner to help on fuel at stop.

    gonna go try,

    The Porsche is too finicky for my tastes, much better consistency with the Merc and Aston
