    Important information regarding Race C:

    This is allowed within the criteria for the clean race bonus.

    What is PD's obsession with that stupid Central Loop in Tokyo? The road is not wide enough for racing and makes it way too easy to be a dick. I would rather have Miyabi any time of the day.

    Good morning friends,

    Happy Monday. I finished up my daily race adventures yesterday in the C race. I employed a no stop strategy using the newer Lexus. It was adorned with my Burger King Pink Panther livery.
    I experienced tremendous success. I recovered back my lost sr, and had fun gaining 86 spots over six races.

    Re B race, it was such a great combo, and I did get some great races in. The problem was that it was one race from ten with people on NA behaving badly.
    Back to 99 sr and I shall forge ahead into a new week of dailies!
    Damn the torpedoes!

    Not sure if related to the latest update, but every time I finish a daily race I got disconnected from the network. Same happens to a friend.

    Start with clearing the game's network cache and then powering the system completely off. That has helped me in the past with network issues.

    YOU MUST HAVE READ MY MIND !!( was thinking somebody should make a video of the guys antics) one of the dirtiest drivers around I was racing last night as well with many of the same players. The guy that knocked you off in 1st race and then took care of the Canadian down the straight was doing it to everybody. This dude will not let you pass no matter what!!!!

    Relegated to SR A again, the game said that I ran this car off the road because it was holding me up:

    I was thinking the same, but... race B is looking fairly appetizing. Might be time to take the Gr4 Supra out of the garage so I can look fantastic while i'm bleeding DR.

    I did a couple of Race B. Clean and enjoyable so far. I was to go back to DR A after getting a hard reset to Dr points 7k in Tsukuba.

    I’m all in on the green hell this week. It’s gonna be messy. I’m probably gonna lose massive DR points, but sod it. I guess it’s just about not making mistakes.....

    EDIT: Idiot number one encountered - exiting a penalty on the long straight so he waits to see which side I am going then cuts in front of me at the last second to get a boost. Gets himself a 1 second penalty but the loss of speed means 3 cars go whizzing past me. I hate people like that.

    I've been getting this too, just started doing it today - automatically reconnects quite quickly, but a bit worrying as I very rarely get disconnects.

    Thanks to @barak181 I fixed the issue, much appreciated!

    Clean network cache and restart the console.

    Surprisingly clean race at C.

    Qualified 3rd but pretty obvious the two drivers behind me were faster so let them go and ended up 5th. FL around 8.40 with the car (AMG) being detuned from normal. Winning driver clocked an 8.20.

    The penalties are brutal as served at the start of the long run. Driver in front of me got a 5s penalty. It's more like 7-8s in practice with the loss of speed.

    I'm definitely not a fan of the daily races this week... I mean it feels like there's no racing and you're hoping for people to crash!

    I think I've encounted that driver before but I could be wrong but the first thing I thought was that you were not going to pass them easily, I bet you really annoyed them by getting through anyway. :D

    I think they just didn't see me, if it was deliberate I doubt they would've braked when I was sideways in front them. They had really good pace too.

    Maybe but it looked a bit too violent for an accident but it's possible, could also be a lag thing. I reckon they'd have got a penalty if they hit your car once it was sideways though, that's usually what happens to me anyway.:ouch:

    I've just watched it again, I think he might've been trying to leave me space and touched the grass, it's one of those that are hard to read without being in his car. It's nice to see a crash without penalties being machine gunned at anybody in the area :lol:

    Almost a podium. Needed to qualify a bit better, but I don't feel like doing that right now.



    All pretty good fun despite the absolute warzone that Sport mode could be at times.
