    My youngest grandson is named after that comic strip. At least I think he is. Son has more than a couple of those big C&H books.

    Yes, I'm quoting my own post. Just throwing out a reminder to all D4 drivers to make a suggestion for Prize A. You only have a little over an hour left.

    He's got the name right in his post. You added in the Nissan GT Academy part that isn't there.

    Please bear in mind that this combo was used for the GT Academy time trial and it was well documented that those using a controller were at a disadvantage because the car understeered more heavily than it did for wheel users.

    Those using a wheel could run flat through Eau Rouge while those using a controller had to lift.

    That's true, but the GTA physics were sligthly different than in other game modes.

    In Season 3 testing for RCS it was whispered here about the DS3 turning at high speed issue. It was tested some and more discussion began here.

    In slower cars it won't be as noticeable. The faster you can go the worse it gets.

    It was the same in GT5....driving the FGT using a DS3 and then trying it with a wheel, the difference was laughable. I couldn't believe how much easier the wheel was. That was when we raced it at Daytona Road Course.

    Maybe it's just me, but it only makes sense that the wheel would be faster/easier. I know for me this was the case as soon as I got a few races in with the g27.
