As usual, stick to posting what hasn't been posted in the official patch notes and only post the relavent information in the specific threads.. And before someone asks that question once again, NO you still can't sell cars. If you miss this part, you clearly aren't paying attention. Please read before posting.

And now you may post.

Could you look at a lap backwards on replay mode before this update? If not, then that's new.
EDIT: Ray tracing artifacts on metallic car body surfaces are nearly not longer appearing.
EDIT 2: Not too relevant, but tickets notifications changed from red to blue.
EDIT 3: Variable time speed rate increased from 10x to 30x in Custom Race Mode.
EDIT 4: Car Index in Garage now have brand logos.

In the swap engine list thread, there are possibly two new engines (3UZ-FE-SC430, C7/LT5, i have asked both for confirmation (with screenshots)

C7/LT5 fits in the C3 '69 convertible version.

Roulette ticket notifications on the Garage icon are now blue instead of red.

Also, I have no idea if this is a change cuz I’d never tried to look for this before. When a car is in 1st gear at low revs a small amount of throttle is applied automatically, and the drive wheels are powered. Found this out while testing horns while the server was down, I took the Alpine A110 on Daytona and parked it perpendicular on the banking with the E-brake applied, when I disengaged it the car rolled backwards down the bank but spun the rear tires and made a small smoke show without any button input. I didn’t see any throttle apply in any other gears in any circumstance.

You can rotate the chase cam now!!! Although it's a bit wonky when looking back...
Just a remember that this feature used to actually exist in the closed beta of GT Sport before being removed in an update for reasons that i still don't understand. It was on the wonky side but still better than nothing.

Sorry for going offtopic.

I don’t know if this should be posted here, but I have a Charger Hellcat with racing brakes that were red, and now they’re green and cannot paint them any other color. Tried purchasing both racing brakes sets to no avail, even reverting back to stock and back to racing and they won’t change color, stuck on green calipers. Can anyone confirm?

Edit: checked other cars, they change back to green!! WTH???

This is just the creeping from the automatic gearbox. Happens since at least GT5, maybe even 4.
