Quote from brandons48 :Had the exact same thing.

The rewards are, (excuse my french) utter SHITE.

Although i do recommend we stick at it. The Indy 500 onwards shows great rewards. (Jaguar XJ13).
Quote from danowat :^ This is the problem with "race = reward" systems in games.

Instead of racing to gain XP or money or whatever, "we" should really be racing for the pure joy of racing

Double post: There is no enjoyment to be had racing a Mazda Mx5 around the Tsukuba circuit for 4 hours. Maybe a Ford GT, Ferrari or some LMP cars around some fast flowing track like Circuit De La Sarthe or Trail Mountain.
i honestly love tskuba, the corners are so linked together, and such an odd shape, and speed, with what can almost be explained as little chicanes, or s curves...its just a nice track
Quote from spyshagg :Lancia delta S4 + Nurgburgring = oh my god

cannot wait for youtube upload feature

Don't think that is happening anymore, Kaz mentioned on twitter that memory issues and long rendering times for it, but is still considering it
Quote from 13OB :Few of my purchases




Can that be upgraded and tuned? Whats the max power it can do

Yep Its at 200bhp atm (not sure if fully upgraded, 1 more engine upgrade). Also got some slicks on it and its a machine!

Cool, I wonder if the Fiat 500 can be tuned up likewise

I took my Ford SVT truck to an online drift lobby - that was funny
It feels truck'ish off course, but 509hp and no weight at back will kick the back end out no worries, and it feels quite stable due to the long wheel base and weight

I wouldn't waste your money tbh. It cost around 250k+ to buy and upgrade it. I just done it because all I do is buy total crap when I get money e.g. a 13bhp Mazda for 20k haha
Some of my new beauty's I experimented with some settings, and a filter to.

I just finished the 60 laps around Grand Valley. I enjoyed it. I did take a retardedly fast car on racing tyres, so I was 7 laps up on second place.. but it was a fun race.
Anyone remembers what tires were on the Time Trial demo for the 370Z? I don't recall it beeing Sports Hard tires, it's a little overkill for this car no?

N3 - so around Comfort Softs I think. Assuming they haven't changed the tyre specs, but they may have since the tyres react different now, more progressive

BTW I bought an old Beetle, assuming I could tune it up well, and it won't crack 100hp

Well there is nothing wrong with the B-Spec on Daytona after all....

I put my full hot level 11 driver, with a blue upward arrow, on that Truck race on Daytona again, and he led from start to finish, and set the fastest lap of the race without any draft help. Finished with a 7+ sec lead.

The main thing was - he barely braked at all, and carried a 248-249kph speed through the slowest turn

So it's down to driver level and the corner rating I suspect when it comes to issues with Daytona people are reporting. I know my lower level driver who previously raced on Daytona, would brake at level 3-5
I put that same driver, now at level 7 in the same race, he gets into the lead but brakes back down to 215kph at the slowest... and gets caught up in traffic etc
Bring on friday so i can finally order a PS3+GT5 from amazon!!!
hey guys, just got a ps3 and gt5 today, f*cking amazing.
Feel free to add my psn - Frankys_S
hmm have you tried the caterham in gt5? i need to keep some money on me to snag goodies like that from the used carlot.
I'll have enough money for F GT soon.

Well that's what I am thinking too, for the distance limited endurance, should I actually get a lower spec car and have a tight race, or just get the fastest thing possible and get it over with.

I'll try doing the trial mountain one next week and see how it goes.

If an XBOX can do it (although very slowly), a PS3 should.

or can anyone suggest a good capture method to PC?
Quote from Gabkicks :hmm have you tried the caterham in gt5? i need to keep some money on me to snag goodies like that from the used carlot.

It's a great car, good for light weight british cup to serious supercar races, just doesn't have any downforce that's it.
Quote from JJ72 :If an XBOX can do it (although very slowly), a PS3 should.

Do what I do, get a capture card. I use the Blackmagic Intensity Pro Shuttle. There is a PCIE version as well, it's relatively inexpensive.

I detalied it earlier in this thread, should be able to find it if you do a search under my name

Once you cap it, you can edit, recompress to a smaller size, mp4, and upload to youtube.
From a solo run I did tonight in my lounge with Jegato spectating
LFA on the Ring with changing time/weather. Did it as a race, saved the replay which allowed me to photo mode it








Just raced against H.Winkel, V.Wong and a Mr J.Hendricks! All in the same race
They are by far the most impressive GT5 pics to date - simply amazing.

Any tips on the 'camera' settings to get those shots?

...looked at them again, just wow.

I normally have panning mode 2 on, and sometimes 3 - press Triangle to access this option. This keeps the car sharp and in focus. Basicly the camera moves at the same speed as the car.

Set the shutter speed to a higher value if I want a blurred look to the wheels and the landscape to impart a sense of motion. The bottom 3 values are what I mostly use for this.

I set the F number depending on how in focus I want the background to look. Larger F number is more in focus and vice versa. Usually between 2.8 and 8. The thing is, if you use a really small F number, it tends to make the cars look more toy'ish. Too high a value and the pic will lack depth.

Then tweak the EV to get the right level of brightness. I usually increase it a bit. Seems to enhance realism.

Other than that, I sorta squint my eyes to make sure the composition of the photo looks balanced in the preview screen, otherwise I move the view around until it does.
There is no real science to it, I just go by feel
Spotted the Caterham in used cars this morning and bought it. It's not the fastest car in my inventory but with soft racing tyres you can go around corners so bloody fast it's mind-boggling!
