    Very good point. As they say, the grass isn't always greener on the other side. Although it's entirely possible that Projects CARS lives up to the hype, I'm rooting for Kaz and PD to completely blow it out of the water with GT7. The Gran Turismo franchise was historic and ground-breaking, and most of us have an emotional bond with it at some level. It's like a good friend that you want so see triumph and share in their success.

    That being said, it seems apparent that Project CARS will be the first legit racing game on the PS4 (SNAIL's eventual platform of choice once GT7 launches), so I think this is still something we should consider doing. Thoughts?

    I'll eventually get a PS4, but will also have to get a new wheel by the sounds of it too, so it'll all be a big purchase. If Project Cars does turn out pretty good, I'd be down for joining a SNAIL division in it, for sure!

    I'm just waiting for project cars to come out before I get the new wheel. My ps4 gets a workout from me playing destiny all day.

    Here's your official SNAIL Welcome Post!
    Thanks for your interest!
    Here's what you need to know (and do) in order to join:

    We run a clean league by enforcing a strict penalty system based on the SNAIL OLR (which is a modified version of the GTP OLR). We also expect all of our drivers to know and follow The Good Racecraft Guide. Please become versed in both if you aren't already. Once that is complete, please follow the steps below to complete your entry into the league:

    1. You start a conversation and add @CoachMK21, @Dragonwhisky, @JLBowler, @nmcp1 & @zer05ive as participants. The conversation title should be "Request To Join".

    2. SNAIL Administrators will respond with specific instructions on what you need to accomplish to join the SNAIL [Spec] Racing club. Sunday races are organized exclusively through the GT6 Community features within the game.

    3. Place the following links (URLs) in the favorites (or bookmarks) in your web browser for quick reference. Please make every effort to read and understand the following links. Over the years a great deal of time and effort has gone into creating this league and we would like nothing more than to have you but we ask that you take the time and effort to do your homework. 99.9% of any question you may have about SNAIL can be found in the posts below.
    4. You drive fast and clean on Sunday :tup:

    Again, the original post has everything you need to know about what to expect on Sunday night and what you will need to have completed in order to be competitive. If you have any questions, please feel free to post your question on the thread. If you have a preference for car/wheel colour and racing number, please follow the instruction contained here.

    During the week we run a number of different events, we encourage all SNAILs to join as many as possible.
    Welcome to SNAIL :cheers:

    Just wanted to say that for a poor man like my self, I think gt6 helps me get as close to my dream of racing as I will ever get. Yea I know some things need work, but to be able to go by a 79 dallor game( broke the bank for it),get to compete against all the awesome drivers I've met, get to join Snail_Racing, and learn way more than I would have otherwise all for the price of a game. I couldn't beat this with a stick.

    Ps4 is a lot more responsive and the graphics are more crisp. Once I get the wheel I want to test out streaming some racing with the ps camera. Overall I'm satisfied with the ps4. I've had it since day 1

    Is there an official announcement that existing wheels will NOT work or is everyone assuming the info on the lack of Sony not saying they will work with the PS4. These two situations are very different. Microsoft made it very clear that they would not support existing hardware with the XBox1. I have not seen that same info from Sony yet (granted, I have not looked that hard either)

    It is true that there are no games currently that will support existing wheels on PS4 due to the game itself not supporting FFB. Im still holding out hope that once PCars comes out, that existing Fanatec will be supported

    Everyone involved seems to have a different story. There is the theory of a security chip that a wheel would have to have to work with the PS4 but the fact the the T500 will work and is supported by project cars blows that theory out of the water. Sony has said it's up to each game developer to supply wheel compatibility. There are ways around a lot of things and the fact that the T500 will work just goes to prove that.

    For clarification to anyone who might be wondering. You may NOT use the Weds Sport IS350 "08 version of this car. It's specs are not identical to the base model. Anyone using the wrong version of the car will be asked to leave the room. If it gets by the host, you will have your race results deleted from the record for using the wrong car.

    Haven't been on these forums in a while, whatup everyone

    I'm down for a project cars league. Project cars will probably be more well produced than a GT game because of how closely the developers worked with the community rather than acting like they are the secret service like PD.

    Might be willing to help organize for project cars league, one of the only games I have looked forward to for quite some time.
