    Think I'll stick with Mt Panorama tonight. Doesn't seem to come up too often.

    Missed getting my mileage bonus car by three minutes last night, very annoying. Still no sign of the Ferrari or Jag. :(

    New update, some nice changes to Sports mode by the sounds of it.

    Update day. No new tracks though :(

    Mt Panorama was fun last night even though I was quite slow. No idea how someone was doing 2:28s during the race. I even watched the replay and didn't see any dodgy lines. He just carried amazing speed through all the corners. Great driving, right on the edge.

    There were two French dudes with TX3 in their handle both doing it.

    They're doing a pretty great job with the free updates. Looking forward to trying the open wheel car.

    Bit disappointed that they're ghosting out the backmarkers, they tend to bunch up the leaders for the last few laps and make for a more exciting end to the race.

    Surprised there's no BoP changes, the Gr1 class needs a serious look at.

    Sounds like they may have went too far with the penalties. 2 seconds for both drivers at the slightest touch apparently.

    Well I've given the openwheeler a go, shame it's Grade X but at least it gets some races to use in.

    Accelerating out of a corner...it's an experience especially when it spins in wheels in 4th. Also you can only increase it's weight or decrease it's power.

    As its bonus time of the year am considering either a G29 or T300 GT edition with a playseat challenge as my erm.... little treat.

    Anyone got experience of either/or/both?

    If so that's ridiculous. Rubbing is racing as they say.

    Get the T300. I've tried both and it was definitely better. There are some reliability issues with the T300 so make sure the place you buy from has a good returns policy.

    Amazon most likely......

    They are usually very good with returns in my experience.

    I thought the pedals were a bit disappointing on the T300 (3 pedal set) but they were improved by fitting the supplied conical rubber mod.

    I've replaced the internal fan on my wheel as the first one gave up. It is a few years old now though.

    T300 is great but yeah there's reliability issues. My first one blew a motor playing project cars and I've also had a set of T3PA peddles go as well. Project Cars was known for burning out wheels though and the second one has been rock solid. Amazon replaced it quite easily after a bit of moaning too as well.

    If you get one make sure to pick up Assetto Corsa as well. I installed it again yesterday as I didn't like the dailies and I'd forgotten just how amazing the handling was.

    Thanks chaps, and is the playseat challenge up to the task of keeping the wheel stable while still being comfortable to sit in?

    Against all expectations that new blue moon track in today's daily is really fun once you get it. Had some good races.

    Can't help you there. I just use a Wheelstand Pro and office chair.

    I like the turbo formula car, although it is a bit Ďdeadí to drive, even with all the assists off. You have to take account of the sudden surge of boost in low gears around slow corners which is a new challenge.

    Looking at the T300 with a GT Omega stand the total is coming to £409 on Amazon UK.

    Gosh.

    It's in my basket but I am in full on 'thinking about it' mode :D

    I really like this game, but I donít have enough time to play it. Only level 21 now, finally can drive on the nurnberg ring in arcade mode. Not driven a single race online, kind of scares me a bit tbh, is there a beginners class where itís alright to fuck up?

    Just get in there. Main thing is make sure you actually know the track. Join a few races without qualifying and you'll start at the back. If you drive cautiously you'll soon pass some crashing folk and still end up in a decent race at some point as you battle at the back.

    TL;Dr just go for it

    @Fake_Blood just venture online and don't worry about fucking up, nobody else does. You'll end up being pissed at other players but you will come back for more because it is still good fun.

    Iíve put 50h in so far and only 1h of that is the offline content, itís just all been online for me.

    The new patch seems decent, it was much less harsh with SR yesterday, allowing some bumps without penalising me. If anything I rear ended a few people and should have been punished for my shit driving but wasnít. I also did a lap with a penalty and didnít notice it start to increase.

    Found a few people braking when I was behind them to make me crash last night, idiots.

    Weirdly enough, I both like and dislike the new SR system its great when your in front and trying to defend and the person behind needs to figure out a clean way to pass but when you're behind someone and they are really, really slow but defending well - somehow - then you know the slightest contact will end up in both players getting a penalty :rolleyes:

    I think the no contact thing, may have just taken it a bit too far, which I fear will put people off playing online - leaving the S/S ranks to play by themselves...

    The new penalty system is fucking awful. The slightest touch, whether its your fault or not now results in a 5 second penalty. You can no longer bleed off the time and have to come to a complete stop so everyone is slamming on their brakes in the the middle of the race, and not ghosting. I've also ran wide on a corner and went on the grass and was given a 5 second penalty.You also now lose DR if someone else drives into you. Pretty close to fucking it off all together after the few races I had this morning to be honest.

    @Decks True but it also doesn't help when for no reason everyone in a daily gets booted of the race, especially when your sitting on pole - WTF! :(

    GT Sport is need of some serious attention - it is so effing broken!
