    If using a wheel, what setting do you drive ?
    900? 670? Switch it up for cars ?

    I'm too old to start changing the rotation of my g27.

    Just regular, whatever it came with, I feel the stock settings are good enough for me so far.

    Probably hard on the tires too I would guess. Flicking a car around the track for 30 laps can't possibly end well.

    I just wanted to share this with my fellow snails as I thought it was a pretty badass save by myself.

    Its not that, I'm just not good at taking in game pictures for some reason they come in blurry, and my usb stick quit about a week ago so I have no way of uploading replays. And thanks lol

    I dunno about you guys, but I'm going balls-to-the-wall for GTAcademy this year. AutoX yesterday, karting tonight (with plans to do it again once a week this month), and starting my 4 day/week exercise routine tomorrow. Now if only I was fast... I'll work on climbing the first round rankings somewhere in there... took me 3 laps just to get gold this morning. :boggled:

    To anyone who submitted their GT Academy time:

    I tried to sort it from my Google Drive App and well, it erased some of them. Apparently, there isn't an "undo" button in the app. If you see it's missing, feel free to resubmit it. Thanks.

    Is that a G27 thing? I don't ever have to reset my DFGT.

    Just read something that could be upsetting to some, if I'm reading it right.

    From the GT Academy FAQ page: "Those who have an existing competition driving contract, or have previously held a National A or superior MSA racing license or equivalent, or competed in a national level karting, or other motor sport, national championship, are not eligible." Is this more strict than last year? I imagine some of you harcore guys might get caught by this one? Didn't one of the guys from the last season come from experience in national level karting?

    I tried that and at first it helped me with turning in quicker. Unfortunately after a while I just turned the wheel less and ended missing my apexes again.

    Weren't there other snails at Silverstone too? It seems to disqualify them as well with the next sentence.

    "Contestants who have previously attended the GT Academy Boot Camp at Silverstone Race Circuit in the United Kingdom are not eligible to enter."

    I worry for the people that actually have a chance.

    I'm sure the second part is true. Everyone in the show is done with this competition. That's just a reality of TV - they don't want the same guys coming back over and over (although ironically last year they got Joey and the year before that they had his twin...that was odd, lol) so once you make it on the show, you either win it that year, or that's it.

    You would have to get a response from one of our GTA Finalists for concrete confirmation, but I seem to recall one of them posting last year that they were only allowed to adjust the seat position.

    I'm a weirdo and run my G27 on the shortest turning radius possible (don't remember the degrees, but whatever Start+Select+Triangle is)... it's super twitchy... but it only took a day of using it before it was uncomfortable to go with anything wider.

    They key word in there is national. Its a little vague, but as I understand it only those competing in very high-level amatuer or professional series wouldn't be eligible. The only thing that might bite some is National level SCCA autocross competition. Heitkotter was a national autocross champion though and he was eligible, I think similar restrictions were in place at the time.

    To be on the safe side, I would say any local/regional autocross is fine along with LeMons of course. Anything that doesn't require an SCCA comp license or better is probably fine. But for anyone where its an option, I would stay away from national SCCA competition, Skip Barber national series, MX-5 cup, WKA karting, etc.

    I use the 670 most of the time - it's easier on my wrists. Do I need to 'reset' this for each race after race settings are changed? After I change cars?

    I'll run a few of the GT Academy events, but only to try 'em out. I don't have the skill to make it, and I have a job/life that couldn't be put on hold if somehow there were a cataclysmic event that left me eligible to go to the UK.

    No. You would only have to reset it after exiting/relaunching the game, or rebooting the PS3.

    Be patient, it will be announced and soon as the stewards are finished with what they need to do, and the prize winners do there selecting. Usually its late Wednesday Evening or sometime Thursday. Just depends on incidents and such.
