    I've done a lot of poking around today and I have found many sources that say the track has had issues for quite a while before the latest update.

    It has always had some issues yes, but it is has never been this bad. We did just race it awhile back without these problems.

    Looks like the VW VGT will be released on the 23rd of this month and will be based upon the Golf GTI.

    Oh no.... PD deserves a turd in their Cheerios. I would take up a collection to bankroll all of the gas station burrito's it would take to do the job!

    It's challenging alright and a nice contrast to the utterly predictable BRZ.

    Agreed. I think the reason why the BRZ is sticking around so long is because we have very close races with it. Last Sunday I think only 0.5 sec separated the first 5 cars over the finish line

    What's happening with Bathurst?

    Can someone tell me what's the difference between the G25 and G27?
    Is there an even better wheel than those 2 out there?
    I'm definitely upgrading on racing wheel but haven't decided what I'm buying yet.

    So far as I can tell Schmiggz, the G27 has 4 more buttons on the wheel than the G25. Internally, I have no idea. Don't think the G25 is in production anymore. I could be wrong about that though.

    There are several "better" wheels out there but they generally run in the $500+ range to get all the pieces you get with the G27 and 25.

    I am not going to get enough time between now and Sunday to be confident in the Suzuki and I'm certain I'll be slow in the Ferrari. Oh well, D1 guys, just assume orange means caution and make your way around me on the outside...or wait for me to end up in the dirt (it should only take about 2 corners).

    From my basic research, the G27 has different gears within the wheel which allow it to operate smoother and quieter than the G25. More buttons on the wheel of the G27 which is incredibly useful for stuff like side view, rear view, lights, wipers, horn (@JLBowler's favorite), etc. The shifter on the G27 is gated only, and much quieter/smoother than the G25. The G25 gives you gated plus sequential mode on the shifter. Not sure about pedal differences.

    The G25 has less buttons on thebwheel, and you can switch the shifter from h gate to sequential, and a few minor interior changes to v the electronics and gears. Minor. That and the g27 is still made and supported. Also, a new version of c the G27 was released, but it's just more minor electronic changes.
    A better wheel? Lots out there. But only a couple for c the ps3. And as mentioned, they are $500+ if you want better get a thrustmaster t500 wheel and pedal set, fanatec wheels appear to suffer from janky electronics and mediocre customer support

    unstable cracky sound and dqs. Multiple hosts kicked and it kept freezing up!
