    SR moves quite quick if you can get some clean races, the 10 lap races especially give a good bump to SR.

    Only if you really want to. You'll learn quickly just by racing.

    Look at the fastest lap on the gr.1 race. The corner cutting is ridiculous! I presume the rest of them are like that too.

    I hadn't realised you get a car for Golding the track experiences so I ran through 6 of them last night. The only remotely decent car was the GT3 porsche. Which I already had.

    SR is weird, in one Gr1 race I lost 31 mainly due to others, just did the 2000GT 5 laps of Suzuka East(?), started 5th, finished 3rd, clean race bonus and my SR went up by 2 :eek:

    Ah man that jag is an absolute gem to drive. Itís not like some old cars where itís like it on ice, but itís so beautifully balanced in this game that you can kick the end out and control it like a hero at will.

    Save up those credits lads ;)

    SR seems to have gone really wonky for people contacting you.

    Ouch, yep not sure if something has changed but it seems to be a lottery at the moment. Struggling to get mine back up, staying well away from Gr 1, as theyíre so fast you can get multiple hits from someone through a corner losing a shed load of SR before you can do anything about it.

    Something has definitely happened to SR, even in those 10 lap races, I'm just about able to finish with a blue SR. Seems to be either neutral or red, despite me not colliding with a single driver - of course them bumping me from the rear :rolleyes:

    Not sure if a lot are doing the same as previously my races would be B/S across the board but recently itís been a right mix, last race was 1 S/S, 5 A/S, 5 B/S and 1 D/S. Think Iíve had maybe one race in the last 10 or where everyone has had the same ratings.

    Can't say I'm having any major problems. Been S for a few weeks now and barring the odd dickhead the races have all been pretty clean.

    Done one race on Suzuka last night, qualified 3rd finished 2nd but how that happened was hilarious. The guy in 1st finished 3rd :lol: We were all pretty close in the opening laps with a maximum of 1 second between us but as the guy in 1st went to pit he, crashed into the pit wall entry, luckily his car ghosted and me and the guy in 2nd were able to pit. However, the guy that was in first got auto replaced onto the track and he had to do another lap on worn tyres - unfortunate but funny as hell :lol:

    That said, I did noticed that PD may have made a changed to the rolling start distance. All cars were a minimum of 1.5 secs apart at the rolling start - I think it needs to be like this more often.

    Enjoyed a couple of races on Suzuka last night. I finished outside the top 10 both races but my DR increased, I think because my quali time put me in a good group.

    In the second race I lost control after putting a wheel on the grass and spun across the corner taking someone out. I was put down in front of them so the next straight I pulled over off the racing line to let them back through. But they rage slammed into me. I wonít be doing that attempt at kindness again.

    I'd say just enjoy the racing and really who cares about SR and DR. They're both mostly meaningless.
