    How to get correct colour accuracy for GT Sport and tv ?

    Because it takes the TV a few extra milliseconds to add more processing to the image. It doesn't make the game system itself lag more, but it increases the delay between the time the game system sends its image to the TV and the time the TV actually displays the image. Most TVs today from...

    How long will you withstand GTS without adding new racetracks?

    And that's fair. We all have our own preferences. 🙂 To me the fictional tracks just never feel like they have the same "flow" to them that the classic tracks do. Kind of like the difference between the modern Tilke tracks in F1 that drivers complain are soulless compared to the classics like...

    Turn off Low Fuel Warning?

    In most cases a wreck should actually make your fuel last slightly longer since you'd be slowing down to navigate it and deal with the resultant yellow flag zone. I don't think it should be removed entirely, but it needs to at the very least be an optional menu toggle. Ideally the warning's...

    How long will you withstand GTS without adding new racetracks?

    I have to disagree with the assessment that "the tracks we have now are mostly great." There are basically 7 tracks worth diving in GTS - the real world tracks. And even those are missing true greats like Monza, Spa, La Sarthe, Fuji, Silverstone, and Laguna Seca. It's absolutely inexcusable...

    Turn off Low Fuel Warning?

    Anyone figure out a way to turn off the low fuel warning that pops up on the middle of the screen and obstructs your view of the race? Or at least move it from the center of the screen? I can't be the only one who finds it incredibly intrusive and distracting to have that pop up when I'm in a...

    Thrustmaster T500RS/T300 wheels thread

    Aside from having a buddy with a Windows laptop come over and update it for you I'm not aware of a way to make that happen. :-/

    Cars too long ?!??? Races too short

    As others have said, "bumper" cam is misleading. There's a reason why PD calls it "standard view" officially. If I remember correctly, sometime did an FOV comparison between standard view and cockpit view with GT6 and basically concluded that "Standard View" (what most call "bumper cam") is...

    What was your strategy for the Alsace 15 lap?

    Used the Mustang, racing hard, max weight reduction, max downforce, ran super hard for the first six laps and built up enough of a lead that I was still in first after stopping for fuel. Backed off and ran a nice gentle race for the remainder which conserved enough fuel that I crossed the...

    Why is the Sambabus so important?

    Because it's an absolutely hilarious vehicle to race. I would love to have more quirky old cars to run basic races with or to just have silly fun with friends in a private lobby.

    New to the game

    Racing with others on a track is a very different thing from a time trial lap or racing against an AI. AI are more predictable and racing against AI takes less concentration than racing against humans because they block more and work harder to defend their positions. You have to work out how...

    Yesterday, I let my emotion got the better of me ......

    As much as I think the ability to do something like host a lobby in a sort of "Race Steward" mode, I can't see PD implementing it in a way that would affect SR or DR. As imperfect as the algorithm is, it's imperfect in the same way for everyone. There's no way to ensure that every human Race...

    With the 1.05 patch, are PD indicating they will keep an eye on the meta and nerf/buff accordingly?

    BoP is always a moving target (for real life illustration just look at the challenges in getting it right for the non-prototype classes at Le Mans), but I am very happy to see this signal that PD are intent on doing what they can to keep hitting that moving target. It'll never be perfect, but I...

    Thrustmaster T500RS/T300 wheels thread

    We're not "justifying a bug," we're saying we don't encounter the issue. I never said that the sort of vibration people are reporting is acceptable. I'm saying that, in all of the driving I've done in the game so far with a T300RS I have *never* felt it to that extent. For me to feel even a...

    Thrustmaster T500RS/T300 wheels thread

    Am I the only one who basically never feels this vibration on my T300RS? I have to intentionally turn the wheel well past the point where the front end is starting to wash out before I get even minor vibration. I feel like the folks still seeing vibration after 1.03 are sawing at the wheel far...

    How does torque affect car performance?

    In the case of OTR semis, lots and lots of gearing. 18-21 speeds in many cases. :-D

    How does torque affect car performance?

    Another big factor is that an over-the-road diesel engine in a semi typically has only about 1,000 to 1,500 rpm between idle and redline. They have very, very narrow powerbands.

    How does torque affect car performance?

    Nope, you're still very, very wrong. Or, in the alternative, explaining your position very, very poorly. Assuming identical input torque, a gear that provides more torque at 30 mph will still provide more torque at 40 mph. Gears multiply torque. That's what they do, that's how they work...

    How does torque affect car performance?

    Well this is just wrong. Gearing multiplies torque. Torque is *not* horsepower. Horsepower is the product of torque and RPM divided by 5252. If gears changed RPM without also changing torque, they would change horsepower too. But they don't change horsepower. A gearset that cuts RPM in...

    How does torque affect car performance?

    It was not, else I would not have asked. In other words, you agree with me. The answer depends on how that 1,000 ft-lbs is applied to the infinite radius wheel. If the infinite-radius wheel is driven by an infinite-radius gear, the wheel gets 1,000 ft-lbs and the car accelerates fairly...

    How does torque affect car performance?

    I would still argue that torque is indeed "overall" reduced because the result, at output, is less than in an ideal, frictionless, system. I don't understand the relevance of your links as they do not offer any rebuttal to the more detailed explanatory portion of my post. Not do I understand...
