Yesterday, I had at least daily race win and it took place in race A. It marked my 184th daily race win and 201st win in Sport Mode overall.
Next week …… shockingly poor
Race C ….. Just a time trial featuring mobile chicanes on a piece of tarmac totally unsuitable for ”racing” modern day cars. It never ceases to amaze me how popular this monstrosity appears to be.
Just my 2c. Not a happy camper.
Been 2 times on the Ring (once with rental and second time with my own car), and I feel the same.Did you ever drive at Nürburgring in real life? For me, this track shows how far from reality we really are, when on the PS4. the feeling of the speed you are running is simply close to non existing, but at least 'useless'. when I did some laps there, I was reminded of the game , maybe like 4 times in a 23,* km lap. I actually felt better on the real steering wheel, than on the controller. the road is occasionally so life-e dangering bumpy or leans to one side, tempering to make you counter steer, if you do...just don't. BUT, at least you kinda foresee and expect that behaviour of the car, on the real track. in game, for me, it's all to artificial. if I could run the same car on the real and the gran turismo Nürburgring, I'm sure I would be much faster in reality. ....well I think it's hard to explain, anyway I'm not enjoying the N24 in the dailies.
Would it be mad to run Renault, Renault and Renault in these three races? Asking for a friend.
Probably a timing thing. Happens to me when switching cars. ie going from a Gr. 1 car then switch to a N200 or vice versa.It's basically been a month since I've been able to play GTS, so I'm more than a little rusty. Race B this morning - other than being a SR killer - has found me managing things I've never been able to do before: Oversteering a FF car.
I won't be able to cut up and upload the replay until after work tonight but any ideas how I'm managing that? To my understanding, it's not snap oversteer. Snap oversteer happens when you lift off the throttle in a corner, right? It happened to me three times this morning and all three times it happened when I put the throttle down to exit the corner. It be one thing if I was in a Supra or Audi or something similar but I was driving a freaking Sirocco for Christ's sake.
Been a while since I've played the older ones.The really weird thing about that is in earlier GT's this car had super grip, even on hard tires. I don't remember GT6, but when I jumped into this in GTS it was like, woah, what the heck happened?
the track is wider.Been 2 times on the Ring (once with rental and second time with my own car), and I feel the same.
Track is so different in RL. Of course you can not feel the elevations etc in the game, but what bugs me the most, is that the real track is much wider than in the game version.
Will test few races for sure, but not really hyped when this combo comes up.
I think there's definitely an element of perception going on with the track width. I'm sure they've not made it half the width! It's probably slightly smaller due to modelling constraints within the software, basically to bring data usage down on such an enormous model, but even if it is, it shouldn't be so small that it feels completely different. If you watch the GT3 races they have there, it's not like they're going side-by-side through all the corners, they also battle in single file as we do if we're racing respectfully, waiting for the right moment and the right section of track (because there aren't that many of them!).You are right about the track being wider. But it's not by much....
The major difference is when you are on the ring IRL you are not pushing the envelope and if you happen to come up behind a slower car you flash your lights, they use their indicator and you pass on the left.
In game they stay in the middle....
