    I think it's more than country limited. It's time zone limited as races are held at local time.

    Edit correction of typos. Didn't notice them prior.

    For the first Races it's possible you come into a group with some crazy drivers but with a higher rating the races become more clean.

    True that.. I haven't raced online in a few weeks as the SR rating system was all messed up but I will go back and do online races soon to find out if PD have made it fairer for the drivers who do not crash bandicoot into you because they are angry four year olds.

    It still is, and i do not play online a lot with GTS, 3 races per hour, long waits, and a lot of irritation on my side... and i refuse to change my attitude and become a rude driver too...

    For the record I still look forward to your seasonal updates, but this is maybe because I stumbled across your thread long after I finished, well almost, GT6.
    I like trying your tunes and look forward to using them when GTS finally launches.
    I intend to stick around here for as long as you keep this going as tunes not withstanding, I find this forum thread to be one of the friendliest places to be!

    Saw Priano on the top of Nurburgring today for GR3 class.
    There is something i am just not getting with tuning in GTS. All my cars go from sticky to slick is the space of one turn.
    If you can hang on to them. They are fast. But man are they unforgiving right now.

    Hey Otaliema you say that the cars are sticky to slick and are unforgiving right now, I have notice this after the 1.07 update, my Lancer I tuned myself was handling well before the update and after the update, like you describe all my cars go from sticky to slick is the space of one turn, so I have to make changes to the tune again to try and get it right again, is that the same you are having or something else ?.

    I have found the same thing... That McLaren 650S tune was amazing before the last update. Now it handles oddly indeed. Grippy then no grip at all. This is one reason why I have only created base tunes without going nuts on them. Physics seem to constantly change. The only cars that are still good to drive are the Scooby, Lancer and the Gr 4 GT-R. Somehow they have survived the updates.

    I've put some time in this afternoon on the 1.07 update. I'm not liking it. Before it felt smooth and progressive but now like others have said, grip then no grip and twitchy, feels completely different. Hope they fix or revert..

    I think they tweaked the road surface. Can't test that as they will not give us more tracks. Or open up arcade mode.

    But from what I gathered watching. They changed the grip loss coefficient. It's sudden when at speed.

    Ohh on a side note. I established the missing break bar is the ABS kicking in and stopping it from applying.
    I turned it off snd got full bar no red or missing levels but also near total lock up if I used more than 50% pressure.

    Great tune Shaun! Ran this at Ascari and had a blast driving it. I have bought and fully tuned an number of cars with the Ascari Event. I now have a stable full of Ferraris. Honestly can't say I have a favorite but I think your tune for the 458 is in the top 3. I like aero parts and was surprised that there were none for the 599. I didn't want to hang an ugly custom wing on the bacK of such a nice car. As usual you have surely got the touch for making a great tune on just about any car. I suppose that you will be moving on to the PS4 and GT Sport when it comes out. Unfortunately it will be a while before I can do that. So I want to thank you for all of the wins and golds that your tunes have allowed me to make since GT5. I know that you will be missed by me and I'm sure many others as you move on. Hopefully I'll win the lottery or something so that I can get a PS4. It's really quite funny that I just got my own PS3 a week ago. It was used but by a close friend who I know took very good care of it. I just have the task of trying to move all of my GT5 and GT6 data to mine. I have been playing on my youngest son's PS3 since GT5. Again thanks Mate! Your friend Barnabas

    Congrats on your own PS3.
    Transfer of data is best done with a external hdd if you want to save downloading the patches.
    You can't use the system copy or you get your sons profile and log in.
    Unless you had your own on his system.
    If you did than just do a system copy. Snd your good.
    I know some games like EA and Square Enix link save files to profiles so can't share a file with a friend. I don't know if PD did that.

    I am just not getting the physics in GTS.
    I can get the cars to turn with no throttle and give me sweeping turns on throttle but I can't seem to get low speed rotation on throttle correctly turned it i either get way too much or i get a car that is straight :banghead:
    From what I've figured out toe settings are king. Default the settings and adjust the toe and you get a good car. Start messing with anything else and forget it.

    I am getting the same feeling also, to me the grip level seems to go away when coming to a corner and not much on the throttle, yes tuning a car Otaliema in GT Sports is a nightmare at the moment I found.

    Try default settings with half the resr toe 50% wing if a GR car.
    About the only thing that works the same as GT5/6 is the LSD.

    Have you notice this, the very first time you tune up a car the settings stay that way even if you go out of the game or close down the PS4.
    When you come back in the game and make further changes to the car suspension or the gearbox to the same car, and then you go out of the game again or close down the PS4, go back in the game and the settings revert back to the very first time you tune the car, and you think is that strange.

    @shaunm80 I'm hijacking your thread for a post. :lol:
    Ota's kitchen.
    High protein Fruit shake.
    It's not gritty like most high protein shakes.
    Total nutrmints are based on your final amounts and what you use to make it.
    When using as listed you will have approximately 32g of protein, about 40g of sugar, 10g carbs, 10g fiber and 19g mono-unsaturated fat(the good one). 2g polyunsaturated fat (the bad one) (only source is the peanut butter)
    75g triberry mixed fruit frozen, blue berry, rasberries, black berries)
    40g frozen strawberries
    227g Greek yogurt
    50ml almond milk
    34g Peanut nutter (or any of your choice just two servings worth)
    30g honey

    Build this like a parfait.
    Start with the triberry mix fruit in the botttom, add the milk, now add the yogurt tamp down and spread up the sides of the cup to make a big hole and shield the side of the container from the honey and nut butter. Place thee honey in at this point, add th nut butter on top finally place the strawberries in. Close the container and blitz till smooth.
    Enjoy :)
    Note the honey is solely to remove the high tartness, so it's optional if you like tart and tangy.
    Additions.
    Caco Powder, 5-10g worth depending on how chocolaty you want it.
    Cayenne pepper max 1/4 tsp unless you like high levels of heat, no the high level of dairy wont save you in this. I've tried.
    And for those of you that are LI, so am I. It's fine :tup:

    Hmm Pancakes no problem. have two that I fall back on readily. Same with Pan purdue. (french toast for you american types)
    Apple pie sure, won't be m recipe tho, Alton Brown has one of the best IMO, just change the apple types to suite your taste. Strawberry pie? Need way too much sugar to get it to stay together, but like cherry pie it's good :lol:. Top with some Brown sugar maple whipped cream and man :drool:
    Fruit buns.....Shouldn't be too hard. Soft or crunchy? Mix or strawberry?
    Although my bacon wrapped basil chicken is pretty darn good too....:sly:
