    I would probably have a divorce before the honey moon was over if i did that.. So i think I will be leaving the PS3 at home this time :) Where I'm going, I won't need a PS3 for entertainment, Ill have clear blue water, sun on my back and choice of three beaches or two swimming pools. I think ill be alright :)

    All the pics I upload as photo art are my own personal photos, I have thousands of them from my travels. Good times.

    Just tried out @chrisspeed281 tip about the Ford GT '05. What a tune on Bathurst. It is such a pleasure to drive.

    This one was definitely my fault, Although, On the second lap (when I was in the lead again), coming onto the home straight to start the third lap, the TVR Speed 12 comes hare-ing into my bumper and sends me flying off letting the McLaren F1 94 go through and take a 7 second lead, which I then had to claw back. Its the first time I've been bashed off the track in all fairness but still, that was annoying.

    Its only because of the tune that I was able to claw back all that time. Must thank that guy one day :)

    Oh. Coincidently, my fastest lap with the GT '05 was 2.06 which isn't far away from that VGT time you set. Goes to show, if you get the lap totally right, its an easy win.

    That comment was in reply to a post from @Badger66 on the last page about wishing he could swear on here. How it ended up here without the quote I haven't got a clue. That & notifications that just decide not to work all of a sudden are leading to a sense of humour failure.
    And yes, the AI is driving me bonkers and really starting to affect my enjoyment of GT. Call me sensitive if you like but having my intelligence insulted by AI is starting to wear really thin.

    Having a great day aren't I.

    Rant over & returning to my breathing exercises now.

    Be honest Pete, Would you rather have the return of the AI who stick to the racing line in a convoy (like a safety car period in an F1 race) and don't fight back at all. They just let you drive 30-40 seconds off into the lead so you can lap them again at some point or have this new breed of angry yobs that like to make it interesting by using their cars as weapons.

    I think I prefer the new breed as they do push you and make you work for a win, not just gift you it and then leave you to have a sunday drive.

    I'm pretty sure AI's are waiting. After a massive off it took endless to come back on the Track through the Sand but i was able to close the Gap within 1 Lap

    Thanks Chris, Way to bring my over confidence in my tuning abilities back down to earth :) Just kidding, I figured that they were slowing down or deliberately driving slowly, any other car would have gone on to pull way ahead of the pack.

    I just want intelligent AI that fight fair like in the real world. I don't use my car like a bumper car & would like the same in return.
    Maybe that's too hard for PD to accomplish.

    I hear you and I agree with you completely.. Hopefully PD will make some amendments, they usually do (eventually) at some point of the games life span, I still think these AI are a beta test for what will be B Spec racing when that is released.

    You might be on to something there. I just really hope they nail the game settings before they release GT7 or I'm done.
    These moving goals make it look like the monkeys are in control at PD. Kaz calls himself a perfectionist & the endless delays in releasing GT5, as annoying as they were, made me believe that 100%. My GT6 experience makes me want him to revert to not releasing the game until it's 100% finished & he's satisfied it's as good as possible. More than a few of the tuners would agree with that I'm sure. A garage full of tunes that are finished & well sorted only to have that work flushed by a physics change has seen a few throw their hands in the air & walk away. Hardly enjoyable really

    I hope that the game is delayed by a year or two. I am going to be saving up for a PS4 and GT7 when it is released, I won't be buying the PS4 until GT7 is released so the later that is, the better for me. I want PD to get GT6 fully sorted as I am having a lot of fun with this game. My tuning skills are increasing due to the amount of events which PD release so the more practice I get on this game, the better I will be when the next game is released. Im sure that GT7 will be better than GT6 on its release, I think PD got the blunt end of a barrage of criticisms due to what was promised and what was missing from the game itself.

    I have high hopes for GT7 as they have to make sure that one sells well otherwise they may consider their market position in a market that is already flooded with Car Simulators vying for a better position in the game development sector.

    We neglect the VGT Cars. I took the Mercedes VGT to the Ascari Time Trial and i was 1 Second faster than the X-BOW

    This is one thing which I think most GT users overlook. They usual gather dust in the garage. This is why I retuned them ages ago. In honesty, I forgot about the Non Racing Merc VGT. I keep the Racing VGTs ready for any seasonals that may be viable. Hopefully we get some more racing seasonals soon.

    Just awesome tuning. Easy win but the point is I enjoyed the driving of the car. My Congratulations!
    For first time I raced A-spec more than once just for the fun and will continue!
    Little unstable for me (directional buttons user) the back end but no big deal. Even this, is enjoying!

    Thanks! :cheers:

    I agree with both of you...it would be boring if the AI's held back and you won the race with 40secs to spare...its ok for them to try to get past you..thats racing...but on the other hand they do have brakes...so use them and not come from 50 metres behind like a exocet missile and blow you off the track!!

    I agree, This tune was perfect for Suzuka (the track is was specifically tuned for). The tune is still really good, but Bathurst does show this car is a little unstable on the uphill section. Not in a bad way, it is very quick when changing direction but if your not careful, it can catch you out. It is still an easy win as long as you keep it pointing the right direction! This car is a beast at 600PP, very enjoyable to drive.

    This car was most enjoyable on Bathhurst:) Shaun you were right you do have to take it a little more careful through to top end bends but that said it makes it a bit more fun:) but its really fast on the striaghts which gives you that edge over the annoying TVR...lol
    Thanks again for this wicked tune:)
