    Why would we not have perhaps the single longest standing COTW member?

    Cool mate
    Just need 2 more.

    On GTS when you do a Time Trial is there a leader board like the one GT6 has?

    Yes you can take a screenshot, either of the car/track showing the lap time, or of a ranking board like in your pic.

    @Baron Blitz Red
    @paddycars1
    Why not just join the team and then we can get things under way and who knows maybe @90sEnthusiast might join once he sees how much fun we are having.

    To be honest, I don't know about that... @JackRyanWMU has also been around since the GT5 days if memory serves me correctly. I honestly can't remember who joined when...

    Cheers

    Hadn't discovered COTW yet during the GT5 era. My first COTW was the Volvo Station Wagon in GT6, think it was Week 2 or 3 IIRC.

    Just thought I throw this out there, in the event of a drop out or someone unable to participate, I’ll be willing to step in on their behalf. :tup:

    Since @90sEnthusiast asked first he can take your place, that I don't have to race against the tricky one :D.
    @Vic Reign93 can be next on the waiting list

    Before Porsche was ever in Gran Turismo, we had it's counter part that took Porsches chassis and created the likes of the Yellow Bird. This week we are testing the only RUF in the game and that's the RUF CTR3. This weeks car is chosen by @Alex p.

    Did 07.15.695 with it on the Nordschleife. Ruf is finally back to GT. And with such a car (first time ever in GT)! Pooh, really not easy to handle at the limit at all. Reminds me handling wise a lot of the Aston Vulcan. Obviously it is incredibly fast in a straight line. Very, very twitchy. Gotta be really carefull with throttle and steering control, or you're off immediatly!

    Verdict: neutral

    Just thought I let you guys know, there’s a maintenance update during our normal meet up time.

    So we might have to run it on the following day if possible for all. :tup:

    Ok, tonight’s new router test part 2:

    - Modern Warfare Remastered: Won’t connect to matchmaking services

    - Titanfall 2: Unplayable lag

    - Modern Warfare 2019: Unplayable lag

    - Gran Turismo Sport: Unplayable lag

    - Assetto Corsa: Other cars teleporting around the track every 1-2 seconds

    Connection speed tests:

    Test 1: failed to obtain IP address

    Test 2: 761 Kbps download, 69.3 upload

    Test 3: 89.7 Kbps download, 26.7 upload

    Test 4: 2.4 Mbps download, 79.7 upload

    Test 5: 230 Kbps download, 18.0 upload

    Test 6: 5.3 Mbps download, 21.3 upload.

    Playing in Modern Warfare ‘19, the ping warning on the side of the screen is constantly flashing in-between red and yellow over and over again like the connection speed is constantly fluctuating. Seems to be supported by the six connection tests I performed.

    I’ve never seen such inconsistency with a router before. The constant shifting of the connection speed seems to line up with the unplayable stuttering I’m experiencing at the moment.

    Still can’t play anything online until the issue is solved.

    I don't really hang around the COTW lobbies often but I do follow this thread whenever it pops up. Have been for a while now, actually... Thought I'd finally throw my hat into the ring and give my thoughts on the CTR3 now that it's shown up.

    I've tested it a while ago on Autopolis with SS tires and it managed to do a 1:57.851. It's quite a quick car; it's got a high top speed and pretty good acceleration, but the thing is very unruly. You really need to focus when you drive it, otherwise it won't end well. I do quite like the car; and I do especially appreciate the fact that it's in GT Sport at all, co-existing alongside other Porsches like the extended 911 family and all that, especially since other games that previously featured RUF usually dropped it in favor of having only Porsche instead.

    That being said I think I'd have to rate this car Neutral since I can't really classify it as a sleeper car (in the sense that it's a hidden gem) or a beater (something hyped up only to be a total letdown).

    I really like the CTR.. I do get it about how people say its "unruly"... I did a fair few miles on the base tune. The tail has as odd pendulum thing like an old Porsche HOWEVER... the car is an MR 997 so it shouldnt be like this.

    WIth a HSG tune though its dialed out a lot. The car just hammers in n400/500. WOuld recommened people just but it day one Like I did and not wait for DWG,

    On a tangent... I'm waiting for this:

    This car was in Horizon 1 and the early Forzas and its allmost iconic. The flat 4.5 eight.

    RUF CTR3
    Beautiful car in need of experienced driver. One of the fastest cars in the game stock and fully tuned, it's immensely capable. It takes an expert driver to not **** it up. Styling is, imho, on point and the inside is decent.

    I was lucky enough to get this car early on and have not regretted it.
