    Just did the Alfa last night. Watched the replay and damn, it looks like the car has a lift kit. I never seen a car ride so high stock.

    Time trials ok, but still no imagination in pd department.
    On to the nordschleife, making fine setups is more interesting than pd events.

      I think the Spec TTs are alot mor interesting. Shows whose the really the best. Not using tunes when some people who atre really good can’t tune. Fairness is the best way to see who is the best.

      A weather or day to night Special Event TT, would rock. to bad not enough courses have these options.

    Even though the TT and drift events say unrestricted they’re still restricted, you can NOT use any overly tuned then de-tuned cars or any normally tuned cars. I was looking forward to using my set for Indy. I worked on that suspension set for 3 weeks on each of the three race tire compounds. The car stuck mo matter which compound was being used now I can’t use them in the TT BLAH!!

      Basically PD pulled a fast one on everyone. LOL
      Maybe due to the 2.12 was hacked. LOL

      stock TT´s are top.only the real driving performance counts,nothing else.that’s what TT’s should be about,who is the fastest,with same material.i hope PD keep it like this.they should just add a leaderboard for drivers using none of the aids,including abs.

    Not bad, I love Race Cars up for Time Trials, always fun. Nice to see that ZR1 RM up there, I just only wish that GT5 had been more appropriate with Race Cars. Like with the Viper GTS-R, it doesnt go 205 at 633HP, It was a 188MPH GTS Class Car (Current GT1 Spec) and it should do what it was built to do originally. PD seems to base car performance on a HP/KG system not thinking that just because it has 600HP doesnt mean it does 210. If cars like the Viper GTS-R, or the old LMPs did what they’re meant to, I think it would be alot easier to have fair Races with series cars. I will say, that Ford Falcon is dead on, but alotta other cars arent. I dont like Forza’s Physics, but PD could learn from them what car performance is. Like theyre GT2 cars

      Not exactly, Esgaloth…

      at 706pp, we get 4 pre-chicane Group C race cars (’88-89) making 927hp and weighing in at 900kg… a pwr/wgt ratio of 1.0300
      at 683pp, we get 3 post chicane Group C race cars (’91-92) making 808hp and weighing in at 900kg… a pwr/wgt ratio of 0.8978
      at 698pp, we get 5 post millennia LMP/R race cars (’03-05) making 793hp and weighing in at 950kg… a pwr/wgt ratio of 0.8347
      at 694pp, we get 3 millennia end LMP/R race cars (’99-01) making 785hp and weighing in at 900kg… a pwr/wgt ratio of 0.8722
      at 656pp, we get 4 “return of the Prototype” cars (’97-98) making 707hp and weighing in at 1150kg… a pwr/wgt ratio of 0.6148
      at 629pp, we get 7 Polyphony Digital LM/GTS cars (’00-04) making 618hp and weighing in at 1150kg… a pwr/wgt ratio of 0.5374

      PD’s pp system is complex (greater pp does not mean greater pwr/wgt ratios), but not so complex as to create real class and era based series. I know most GT rooms go about mixing and matching cars willie nillie… it is so unattractive to me.

    • May. 3, 11:32am
      Esgaloth

      infamous, i think you misunderstood. I dont mind them having the 600HP/1150KG in the 2000 GTS class or LMP-900s with 650HP/900KG, but the way the car acts is super wrong. They were incappable of over 200 for GTS and those LMP-900s barely went 210. These cars like the LMP-900 Audi R8 has over 800HP which is wrong and when you put it to the real 610, it goes almost 220. The Viper GTS-R goes nigh on 205MPH at 633HP/1150KG, but thats wrong, it only ever went about 190. The cars dont do what theyre supposed to.

      I understand your mixing GT cars being unattractive, I try to do GTE regs 400-500HP/1245KG and use as modern GT cars as possible, oldest being the Viper, and As long as regs are set, they act similar to the 180MPH LMGTEs. I just wish a car would do what its meant and how it acted not in real life, not based on PDs own system. That makes for unrealistic racing.

    • May. 3, 4:26pm
      infamousphil

      I got you Esgaloth. I was illustrating PDs inaccurate pp system as it is based on a hp/wgt ratio. When you take into consideration, the era, drivetrain and other aspects of the individual cars… including power and wieght, it starts to come together. And PD uses a pp ranking system to confuse us more?

    • May. 3, 6:27pm
      Esgaloth

      True, I just wish it would have been more Correct rather than GRID like speed.

    • May. 3, 10:02pm
      infamousphil

      I failed to acknowledge your observation, which is correct, in my last post. There have always been major discrepancies in PD’s physics programming… I’m just used to it and don’t waste my time bitching about it. ;)

      The corsa comfort 1.4 does 118mph!
      In real life it needs about the length of a country and going downhill to hit 105mph.

      Well infamous, when the game is supposed to be a driving simulator, it should simulate the cars proper motions, so when I do “B***H* about it, its for good reason coming from a person who loves professional racing.

      And My point exactly Phil, that’s the problem with PDs sim, cars aren’t accurate to real life performance. Not even close most of the time. If I nail the throttle in a 505HP Z06, the car should dance, not do a straight line burnout, which is another problem. Im not saying this to be a whiner, but These are a few issues, And I hope GT6 addresses them.

    “PD should of done the “sample car” thing a long time ago. Now we can see who is the real Best In The World.”

    I agree, dragging a car around the track with it handbrake on is just not drifting, and involves no skill.
    PD should dump these people with stupid high scores off the leader boards, and give the guys who can drift
    a chance to get up there.

    well, they know now that there is no freakin hacked cars, so they started allowing the tunes

    I absolutely hate the of road “drift” challenges. Sliding on dirt or snow is not drifting.

    • May. 2, 10:51am
      ExplodeTheApex

      +1 Exactly what I think. Are there any forms of snow drifting in real life? If so I am yet to hear of them. So called ‘drifting’ on snow is absolutely nothing like what drifting should be.

    • May. 2, 11:03am
      Whodoyouthink

      It’s pretty much how you drive on those surfaces. Still fun though.

      But I agree, you can’t really call it drifting.

    • May. 2, 11:53am
      Terronium-12

      You all realize drifting was inspired by rally, right?

      So to say “you can’t really call it drifting” is to ignore one of the key factors that gave birth to the sport in the first place.

    • May. 2, 12:26pm
      Pit Crew

      ^ Agree T-12. Seems they’re Too busy hating to actually see that. Key statement is “Inspired” by Rally.

    • May. 2, 12:40pm

      It just shows you have much people pay attention to the history of motor sports and how naive for them to think otherwise. Some people need to get there head out of the games and into the books.

    • May. 2, 2:47pm
      Flagmo-T

      Maybe if the rally part in GT5 would actually feel like Real Rally, it would help to understand the similarity – even though you’re right about the birth of drifting coming from Rallying – GT5 Rally Snow’Or’Dirt doesn’t really feel like the real thing at all, and this is a statement from the Danish Rally champion with more than 30 years on his back, and He is a mature guy that is honest and sincere.. But He is of course into the Real Rally Sim (( >>>> Richard Burns Rally <<<< ))

    • May. 2, 3:07pm
      Terronium-12

      Oh I’m not arguing feel at all. That’s something that’s been largely disconnected since 3 (2 isn’t really a contender given the circumstances), but since 4 it’s felt even more disconnected as it seems the physics involve just recognize gravel and snow alike as nothing more than ice.

    • May. 2, 3:11pm

      Also Nascar was started by Cars on Dirt ovals that slid(drifted) all the way threw the corners back in the days of the Alcohol ban by guys who wanted to see who had the fastest bootlegging car. Dirt ovals have been drifted on longer then the japs have called it drifting. Between Rally an the Dirt Days of NASCAR an Pre-Nascar drifting has been around for almost 80 years or so the Japanese didn’t lay claim to the drift until the 80’s an 90’s.

    SRT8 TC – as a drift car…. slightly confused – would have prefered to TT it….

    But happy to gove it all a go :)

    All rightie then! PD found it safe to allow a tuned TT! So pumped for the event. I’m event happy with the car restrictions. Now lets see if I can manage a top 50% time. The only question I have is… with all the drift car specials in the game, they feel it necessary to mandate the SRT8 TC? PD will forever get me scratching my head. These are smart fellows ;)

      Terronium wrote ‘There are no restrictions on the tuning used in this week’s time and drift events,…’ not complaining Dude but…

      LOL, I thought I was running my own HPS[S]553/1300 formula there.I didn’t have to turn off SRF (it was already off). My 8C just so happened to be that stock red color. And I don’t drive this car enough to notice that I was broughammin’ a stock 8C!? Oh well, guess PD isn’t ready to let us loose quite yet. You hack jobs happy? ;)

    That’s weird. But I’m not doing it since it’s drift. The TT, heck yeah! Love the 8C!

    I don’t care too much to be the best in the world but to beat my mate is a must..after 2 years of trying he just can’t seem to beat me.
    Excuse! I get Better tunes than him..Not True I share everything with everyone. But now since the hackers have been in, tuning as all stopped. He still can’t beat me.
    So for the last three Time Trials he’s turned to underhand tactics. not telling me when he’s doing it and leaving it to the last hour to beat me… I have to keep checking daily. His log has no record of what he’s up to (because of the Hackers) still he can’t win.
    With 49 min’s to go and 20 desperate laps no chance…1 more lap cross the line and exit to update my score…”I WIN” by 600th of a second….time of update 02/04 4:00:16 \\\UNLUCKY MATE/// Ha Ha…GT5 what a Brilliant Game…
