    I hope they update the W08's cockpit view where it looks like there is a very loose spring underneath the seat. It's very good to see when you drive it around the Nordschleife .

    I'm not sure if that's just that car or that the car and track combo accentuates it enough to where it's overly noticeable and all cars have it but we don't see it as much on them because of other visual stimuli.

    Correct. Sport Mode race info is fetched from an external source and shouldn't require a software update.

    We can only hope. The Mercs all desperately need a buff (fuel consumption hasn't been improved one bit, despite them making changes).

    I'm afraid it doesn't require a software programmer to understand PD's software architecture.

    I guess a wizard is necessary.

    My gutterbrain took this waaaay out of context and it was not good. Not good at all. :O

    I can drive through it but I wouldn't mind being able to move it a bit in either vertical direction.

    PD can choose to extend the life and profits of this game if they start making decent decisions. I think the change to week long "dailys" was a mistake that could potentially see them lose a huge amount of players, maybe some combination of weekly/dailys would be best.
    Now that they brought back micro-transactions they should really start thinking about selling track/car packs. Maybe a new/original nut new to GTS track with 6 cars or something along those lines? If they can do something to satisfy the people disappointed in the weekly races long enough to release an expansion pack they could possibly be quite profitable. I dont know what everyone else thinks but I would most certainly pay something in the range of $15 to get a new (to GTS, Im good with tracks used form other Gran Turismo versions) track and some cars with it. Maybe they could then set up the newly introduced tracks to be week long events as well as others to encourage players to purchase them, while going back to 3 daily races. But if they wait too long to make a change it may well be too late to be profitable. I raced in my first weekly-"daily" yesterday (down from racing in dailys everyday) and there were a whole 10 competitors, rarely did I ever see less than 16 before.

    Totally agree. I think it should be dividied. Daily races, weekly races and those which roate every three days. I also can't understand why there are only 3 races. Why not 5, 7, 10?

    Hopefully they properly balance the Ford GT and give the option for both weekly and daily races, preferably keeping Race C as a weekly race.

    I think they should just have it flash up for a second when it gets to 1 .5 and .1...not constantly

    I'm not sure how likely BoP changes will be this soon after an update. PD has only seen the data for the Ford GT on one track...

    I would be suprised to see a fix/change for anything besides the livery editor bug and the LH gear box issue.

    I just hope the idle of the 1991 Mazda actually sounds like the rotary engine we all love.

    I don't think the W08 is broken at all personally.

    Instead of 3 weekly races make it 1 monthly 1 lap race so people with wife and kids can spend more time with their loved ones.

    Waiting for a PD update to Gran Turismo is like waiting for the other shoe to drop...

    Here's to what could possibly be at least a tweak to the W08. I can dream one day the Ford GT will get the nerf bomb.

    What about the GT GR.3 shift light? Am I wrong or the shift light/rev limiter comes too early?

    Maybe not for those using the Manual but for those using Automatic Transmission (like me because shifting on a controller just isn't comfortable), Its a big issue.



    Hard to make a quick lap when the gearbox does that.

    The gearbox is definitely messed up on the W08, which takes the engine audio out of whack, which makes it difficult to actually know when to shift gears.

    And I've only driven it in manual.

    No its the reflection. The number in the reflection is still 20. It's just reversed and flipped, and the font makes seem like it says 20.

    I can see how that would be distracting certainly. FWIW, I'm no fan of anything faster than GT2 in the game, that's about the limit of what I'm any good with... but with standard RS tyres and TCS off I did a 1:43.021 at the Nurburgring GP after a few laps to get used to it in AT... which probably isn't that quick all things considered, but it's certainly possible to improve over the video.

    IMHO, it's all about being smooth, and trying to understand and accept what the car is doing (if you don't want to use MT). You just can't turn it in hard, I personally don't think this is anything to do with the gearbox, I think it's a stiff diff. The tighter you try and turn the car the more likely it is to try and over rotate an inside driven wheel, and the instant that happens the car really wants to spin... you've got to coax it around corners being really mindful not to expect too much leniency from the diff.

    The way the transmission is modeled possibly isn't great for AT, but it's operation is quite specific - too specific in my opinion to be a bug or glitch... I basically think it's a complex hybrid system that is somewhat tricky to get used to, and I think it's been modeled in a certain mode that mostly negates engine braking (because that allows the MGU-K to harvest the most energy).

    EDIT: Just to expand on this a bit more... taking three observations:
    1/ the throttle shows as wide open during heavy braking
    2/ the engine goes really quiet during heaving braking
    3/ it's a hybrid F1 car, therefore very clever and quite complex.

    ... if the engine opens the throttle during heavy braking, it would mostly negate engine braking effects as air could flow freely through the engine... it would of course then have to stop fuelling the engine at the same to prevent unwanted combustion - and this is why it goes quiet at the same time. This lack of engine braking allows the MGU-K to harvest the energy that the engine would otherwise lose in (de)compressing air with no combustion... I have no idea if that's how the W08 really works, but as a theory it answers many of the questions. If anything perhaps PD need to re-model their AT driver-aid logic for this car - rather than change the way the transmission itself is modeled.



    .. but yeah, overall I think it's about being gentle with the controls.

    Still dreaming of details around the track at Le Mans as good as the version of Iracing, and of course, the addition of the night time.

    A different race everyday would force more people to buy via microtransaction, a chance for a different car that is best for that track everyday instead of buying the good car for the track per week.
