    Malc, Thanks for letting me know. Will try to be a bit earlier. You guys meeting up in the chat? Is there a way to flag you're kiwi/ozzie in the chat?? Didn't see any status type stuff.

    I joined the chat from 10pm but no Kiwis/Ozzies. Had the most terrible few random races on Suzuka 4wd with people deliberately using me as siderail followed by them disconnecting at some point when they realized they were actually really crappy drivers and couldn't keep up if not bumping into everybody else..

    Had only one good race on Suzuka with a non-GTP guy that didn't play like this was Ridge Racer *sigh*. I think minka<something> was his name. Good fella.

    Hope to see you all next week, will try to be there earlier and appease the gods to give me TV time

    Thanks malc_an_ting for the races. But hopefully we can get a higher turnout. It was just us two! ;)

    Sync'ing up in the PS3 chat room worked really well.

    Hey Mef,
    Cheers, just a shame there wasn't a few more guys racing.
    I still spend a little too much time going off the track though :ouch:

    Yep, you overcooked it a few times. Just imagine you were really in that car and had to pay the repairs ;)

    Looking forward to performance damage in GT5. That'll show the punters online..

    Quick question, has somebody found a NZ store to pre-order the GT5 special collectors edition?

    Mightyape only has the standard edition. And they don't even state the updated Nov 2 Release Date that was given on E3, so maybe they are not on the ball on our most favourite game!

    Who's up for Monday night racing tonight? I'll be on from 9.30ish or maybe earlier

    If you're playing add me to your friends list so we can use the PS3 chat to coordinate.

    PSN name: GTP_Mef

    Hey Manic, catch you for a game next time.

    By the way looks like all the games are in the :00 and :30 Suzuka 550PP World Event now.

    Had almost full grids every time I tried, and only 3 cars when I tried another event.

    I've been having PSN login issues too, for weeks.

    One thing that (seemed) to help a bit is to login to PSN using my primary account. Then logout, change users on the PSD to my secondary GTP account, and join. Seemed to not loose PSN connection so frequently then.

    I'm on TelstraClear by the way. Don't have internset issues usually so this may be related to PSN servers and TelstraClear having a problem with them (like with youtube)

    I may well make an appearance for MNR. The lineup looks fine, considering the rehashed events from months past.
    If I had any quibbles it would be the one-make GTR R35 at Fuji. Hate the car. It would be nice to open it up to everything, ie Nurb GTR etc. I'm sure the R35 is unbeatable there at 700pp so no big deal if you want to drive something slower ?
    I shall reserve my right to protest by not showing up for race 1 :)
    I've not loaded GT5-P yet, but the 700PP @ Fuji has no drivetrain restrictions (ie AWD, FWD, RWD?) Even more reason to open it up in my opinion.

    Whats this J90? you've played a GT5 demo?? :tup:

    Hey Ripping..
    The GT5 demo was at Armegeddon..and there was a competition for the fastest lap of the weekend.

    I'm not sure how to post a link to the thread it's talked about on, but it makes for interesting reading.. hopefully will see you in race 2 after your protest ... no refusing to drink alright!

    Here's the link to the GT5 at Armageddon Expo thread - https://www.gtplanet.net/forum/showthread.php?t=131583 - the thread gets interesting around page 2 since page 1 is mainly banter but the whole thread is worth a read anyway because it's only 3 pages long.

    Would've been up for some close and competitive racing tonight if I didn't have the flu :tup:.

    By the way this is long overdue but I was meant to turn up for the Friday race evening you guys set up a number of months ago after the Oz/NZ GT Academy Nationals. I ended up being a no show because my friend who I borrowed the PS3 from for the GT Academy Time Trial demo asked for it back...

    I've since bought my own PS3 so I'd be up for some online racing with a few quick local drivers in the future if you guys don't mind!


    Regards,
    Luis

    Ok, read the thread, initially disappointed i didn't hear about the demo being there, but after reading the whole 3 pages, very glad I didn't go. Sounds like a bit of a farce, I would have stayed on the practise setups and run the 'ring all day.
    But as far as racing goes Luis, there is always space on the grid. Get into it.

    And a quick thanks to those I raced tonight in MNR. I see I have some practise to catch up on to have a sniff of the front. Very quick driving Vrrm, Tizzla, JoeNinety and lucag120. cheers for the racing.

    Was an excellent night.
    GTR35 - wish i had the ability to film that race as I followed Vrrm & Tizz swapping the lead until a last lap clash sent them off gifting me a sneaky win.

    Evo10 - Great tune from Paulie helped me run with Tizz for most of the race until a silly mistake allowed Lucag120 to slip into second.

    Integra - Thought i had learnt how to drive this car but pushed to hard creating a massive spin out of 130R - caught up to Ripping who battled me all the way to the line(well i have lodged a complaint!)

    RX7(Eiger) - what can i say - i got nothing!

    Z06 - Took Vrrm out coming into T1 and never recovered but still great fun to drive.

    Thanks guy's..Prolouge has still got some life left in the old girl.:tup:
