    Trying the rally events again. 2 seconds slower than the 3rd place car. I was wtf'ing until I realised I'd forgotten to turn off traction control and other assists. Now I'm 2 seconds faster than the lead car :D

    edit: Ugh, I see the dumb 4 second penalties for the slightest little touch of a barrier are still in from GT4.

    edit2: ... I got +5 that time. I hate rally. Most definitely in last place now :(

    Omg GT All Stars B Spec, that 787b Mazda is crazy fast, he just cant catch him, my guy is in the Chap 70's 2J race car.
    B Spec overtaking is awful and your guy will always leave someone overtake him !!
    Not exactly fair is it?

    I've got one I'm afraid :( You borrow one if you like, the one I've been using is now putting out 892BHP as a posed to the 824BHP they come with. All through oil changes :eek: :D

    I could use one too; Will see if I've got anything of interest after this race... seems you can't view your garage on the web page :s

    Edit:
    Caterham Firebird 02?
    Pug 205?
    Mitsu CZ-3 Tarmac?

    Haven't really bought a lot of cars; so only really got what I've won, which i presume you'll already have :p

    How do you increase a cars torque?... i.e from starting grid?

    Ive noticed that a 800BHP car v a 500BHP doesnt mean the 800BHP is faster and better etc.... whats the factors to this, car weight?

    How do you keep a cars lights on? Only holding R1 does this ??

    LOL! I did this with a RX8 I bought for the new time trial. Spent thousands on transmission and suspension and thought an oil change would take it from 240 to about 246. It took up to 253... :mad:

    Yes, Power to Weight Ratio is key. So don't forget to do the weight reduction upgrades as well as the power ones.

    Using the adjustable transmission and lowering the top speed should increase acceleration.

    haha got one of those too:p

    You may as well just borrow it, you'll only need it for 5 races, and once you turn the ABS off they're SO easy :) PSN is griffo_001 add me and I'll send it over :)

    OMG, the Nurburgring GP/F event in B-Spec mode with the Formula GT is beyond infuriating. Barely winning on lap 26/30. The bleeding tard keeps spinning the car at the chicane right at the end, some times as much as 4 complete 360 spins :mad:
