    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.
    Assholes eh?

    Btw, a new bug has been found that allows anyone who tries to get fresh tyres without pitting at all. Unlike the grip bug anyone can do it and it has apparently been around for a little while.

    I must say, over the weekend I did notice that some people were pitting and not changing tyres and still setting fast lap times and some not pitting at all... Oh PD :rolleyes: No Daily Race C for me until its fixed.

    Tyres self healing

    Theyíre definitely not meaningless imo, you notice as soon as you start to drop how much rougher the races get. From my experience B/S is much better than C/S or B/A, Iíve not been able to reach A/S but hopefully thatís even better. Not perfect but not meaningless either.

    Yup, lost many thousands of points just like this - it really needs to be fixed. With this issue and the new exploit (bug) perhaps its time to setup some lobbies....?

    A/S is quite shit in my experience. There are lots of people who are fast but canít race. B/S has been the best mix for me so far.

    Fair enough. Just seems wrong to worry too much about it. :)

    Itís just about trying to find good racing really, I donít think many here care what rating they are specifically. Interesting that B/S seems to be a sweet spot.

    I have settled at B/S for quite a while. Had some great races too.

    Usually 1 or 2 long races each week. Last night I did Suzuka in the Hyundai and started 16th so ran quite lean and had a fast pit stop. Running 7th near the end and realised I messed up on my fuel 😀

    Needed a second stop which dropped me to 9th...still not bad in the Hyundai which I suspect is not the best.

    Don't know how they have done it (rubberbanding, probably), but I absolutely love the campaign in this. As opposed to Forza 7, which has atrocious AI behaviour and a wildly fluctuating difficulty from race to race, GT Sport absolutely nails it, and I am always battling with with one AI for first place.

    It also controls like a dream, even with a pad.

    Monza is a nightmare online. The first corner is just a complete mess.

    With the first chicane of Monza when you start I brake as I would normally and I assume I'll be hitting something and keep my finger hovering over the brake for when it happens.

    There's literally no point being Mr nice guy in that first corner, battle it out and any penalties you get hit with I can easily get rid of at the next chicane over subsequent laps and so long as I'm light on the throttle through it the time penalties quickly melt away.

    Thereís the changelog. Not surprised theyíve made the Audi LMP1 car more stable, but it looks like they might have tamed the Ferrari a bit :(

    I'm more interested in them making the Huracan more stable in cornering, it was why I never used it after my one attempt with it around interlagos.

    I found it very fast but if you went even slightly over the limit with it you would crash off the track which meant I couldn't risk using it for longer races.

    I'm absolutely loving the tweak they've made to the 458 Italia GT3, its now one of my favourites.

    Okay, as the last few daily races have been so poor I thought that I'd give today's Gr.3 Blue Moon Bay (Oval) race a go... I was quietly impressed. The racing was quite clean and manage to go from 15th to 2nd - may have another go later :)

    @Beccosinho so against my better judgement I thought Iíd follow your recommendation and try the oval it was brilliant :) 19th to 8th in my first oval race so not too bad.

    Had a few more races on Blue Moon and managed to rack up a few wins, however, in all the races I done, I don't think a single person finished with blue SR... I think PD need to change the SR when it comes to these oval races as bump drafting is a real thing - which benefits both racers :D

    That said, I managed to get a orange SR while my tyres were being changed :lol:
