    New Project CARS 3 Clip Confirms Laguna Seca Return, With New 2019 IndyCar

    I get that there's no pit stops but why block off the pit entry with a visible barrier?! It bugged me in the Grid games too as it spoils the realism when you drive past the pits and it's blocked off, something you'd never see on a real circuit. Invisible barriers or a reset as soon as you start...

    BLiTZ's Liveries - Latest Update: #1 Nissan ALTIA GT-R '99

    Cheers @DaveyFT1 , thanks for the kind words. Things have settled down a bit now, the divorce went through a couple of months back and aside from the court signing off on the financial agreement I finally have a sense of freedom back. My new job's going great and has been a good distraction...

    SVG request thread (Please read 1st post)

    I did quite a bit of research (comparing photos of the real car, die cast models I own and colour swatches from screenshots of past GT games) and the closest I could get (by eye on a HDR TV) was H60 S100 V58

    That EK9 looks great, and it's a facelift in white which makes me even happier 🙂

    Japan Booster emailed recently to say that April's releases will be delayed. They have the stock but Japan Post aren't accepting the packages so I imagine it's the same for other retailers. In other news my TLV Lancer RSs arrived about an hour ago (delayed due to Covid19 and customs charges)...

    DiRT Rally 2.0 Comes Free to PS Plus in April

    Downloaded as I used to love messing around on rally games but haven't owned one since since Colin McRae Rally 4 on PS2. Wasn't sure at first, after crashing on the loading screen on my first attempt at a championship, the game then thew me into the deep end with the Fulvia at Argentina. After...

    Ok, was reminded today that TLV are doing the GT-R 50th Anniversary so perhaps the Lancers won't be my last purchase just yet...

    All things considered I probably shouldn't be blowing £50 on toy cars right now, but Japan Booster just listed the Lancer RS's and a Buy It Now soon ensued. With not a lot else on the diecast horizon that tickles my fancy and the usual local slump in HW supply (still not found 22B or 850) these...

    Self Isolation blues got the better of my wallet and I Amazon'd this: After seeing the initial press shots I was on the fence about buying it, but I'm glad I did. Flared wheel arches aside, it's actually a great model in the flesh. Naturally the quattro's angular shape lends itself well to...

    Finally got my hands on the Boulevard BCNR33. Arguably better than the BNR34 😲

    Was feeling low the other night so went for a drive and wound up at a late night supermarket, so bought what any self respecting 31 year old male would buy when they're feeling sad... Despite my initial dislike of the promo images I still couldn't pass up the chance to own a officially...

    Fast and Furious 9 Trailer Shows the Franchise Isn't Slowing Down

    Hang on, I've cracked it... [crackpot theory] The whole FF universe is set in a state of purgatory in Vin Diesel's head. That's why no one's really gone except for Brian, because Paul is actually dead IRL. He discovered the reality before the rest and found 'a way' to pass to the other side...

    ...worth it though! Incredibly sharp casting, pictures don't really do it justice. I'd say the only things that let it down are the painted (rather than moulded) front indicators and the wheels which aren't quite right shapewise, seem a tad too big and lack the NISMO decals (Tomica...

    Dammit, just got stung with customs charges on the IG R34. £8.46 + £12.00 for Parcelforce's handling fee (been a while since I've paid customs through PFW, has the handling fee gone up?). Effectively puts the price at 150% 😒 Dunno if UK customs are tightening their belts, I've just...

    Insisting this year I'd buy less diecasts went well... After a couple of beers the other night it also appears that I've also ordered a Ignition Models 1/64 Nismo Omori Factory BNR34 Z-Tune 😲 Thoughts: Skyline GTS25 X•G - Typical Tomica, a great casting, sharp and accurate but let down...

    Every time I see that Lamborghini all I see is the Ford GT test car from Gran Turismo. I'm also massively disappointed by the GT-R. On paper a Lego GT-R should have been my perfect set, but I just don't know if I can get over the looks. The front lights could have been clear pieces and the...

    Need For Speed Heat - General Discussion

    For me, ultimate cringe was TOCA Race Driver on PS2, but it was such a novel idea at the time that it spurred you on to complete the game and take the ****er that killed your dad out in the last race! In terms of NFS, my first experience was NFSU, so I've always been used to a degree of a...
