    I would say they did not have enough time to upgrade all the track from GT6 to the current standards. Remember that many of the GT6 track were very low quality GT4 upscaled versions of them.

    Because instead of having a big quantity of low-quality ported tracks from GT4, Polyphony is providing redone PS4 quality racetracks that are being added every/every other month. I guarantee that's why Grand Valley, Trial Mountain etc haven't returned yet. They're being re-done.

    I usually forego tracks that I don't know well or that I am not to eager to drive on until the circuit experience becomes available.

    Now, Barcelona was part of my very first racing game (Microprose Grand Prix), yet it was the original layout for the last sector (F1 season 1991).
    Just completed the circuit experience and ugggh, what happened to that last part of the track? I was never a fan, but that weird Micky Mousey layout makes it worse. I'd rather race GT3 cars at Tsukuba...

    Not the fault of the update though.

    F50 powerslides make me smile. :cheers: Certainly a lot less tail happy than the F40. Infinitely more driveable for the average punter.

    Easily my favourite car from the update!!! Well, until I either get enough credits for the P1 GTR or the PS Store option for it comes available... ;)

    I like Tesla, what I don't like is Gr.X classification, that is not experimental car, or prototype, or whatever... it's production car like any other... They need to stop bashing all cars in Gr.X and make a proper BoP (or PP) system...


    ...so true

    I have been grinding for the past two days, for probably a total of sixteen hours, using a slightly modified GT40 (N400) (that I won from the daily marathon) against "professional" Gr.4 vehicles. I still don't have enough money to buy all of the cars. I only earned about 5,250,000 credits.

    Dang, I want the P1 GTR so bad. It was absolutely wonderful on Driveclub. So what is everyone's opinion on the vehicles? (Not in general... are they good in the game?) Is the McLaren P1 GTR worth over 3.5 million credits?

    I know for a fact I'll be purchasing the second gen stingray. That car is amazing. Had one on GT6 with probably 20,000 miles on it. Did a lot of cruising those days. Not so much now, as I like to create custom endurance races on GTS.

    Anyway, so what's the verdict? Should I buy all of the cars? Does the game simulate them well? (Sounds, handling, graphical quality...) I'm not picky by any means. Just want some opinions.

    Thank you all! Enjoy the update!

    I think with 5 mil. plus you're about 90% of the way to getting all the cars... just buy whatever you want most first, enjoy some custom races and then get the rest... its not like as if there's $20 mil. cars this month.

    P1 GTR is hitting 265 mph? on the no chicane Circuit de la Sarthe.

    p1 gtr is electronically limited to 217 :lol:

    Kinda but not worth the far smaller size imho considering I mostly record videos there.

    Or if the SSD has huge storage space it'll cost a fortune.

    Just spent the last half hour or so trying to get comfortable with the P1 GTR... it is most definitely not beginner friendly.

    If anyone got the 40GB update instead, cancel and delete that download, then check update on the GTSport icon.

    Try resuming the update if it come out error. Repeat if it still downloaded 40GB. If it still downloading the 40GB update for the third time you did above then your game data might be corrupted.

    These new Tokyo tracks are the best of that bunch now. Really like both versions, especially the one with the chicane.

    The only disappointment for me in this update is the GT League events: no use for recently added Gr.X track weapons, M3 not eligible in Premium Sports because it costs 93k (like, was it that hard to add 7k to the price?) and Tokyo race for a Mercedes F1... ye, that's gonna be a pain in the...

    Other than that, update is one of the best for me content-wise. Cool cars and new Tokyo layout is actually decent for time-trials

    In GTS, Tesla can run forever without refueling. All Gr.1-4 or Nx00 cars can refuel.

    The Real Driving Simulator!

    I spent more time installing the update than playing it!

    Sounds still suck (F50 sounds like an old Datsun)
    Tyre model sucks (lack of longitudinal grip in 1st, 2nd and sometimes 3rd gear)
    OTT spin outs
    Game still wants to reset your car when you're off track for a couple of seconds
    Earn rate for credits is poor vs. what costs to acquire certain cars
    Chase the rabbit model still prevalent offline - it doesn't matter what you're racing, you'll catch them in the final lap or two
    Online racing is dirty, horrible penalty system, clunky crash model
    Where's the proper clutch engagement?
    Where's the proper steering angles when using a wheel?
    Where's the function to turn your headlights at will so you can actually see your dashboard gauges?
    Weather, time of day still non-existent
    Cars with unrealistic torque curves resulting in higher speeds in sections of track vs. reality
    Incorrect gearing in cars (F40, 22B)

    I guess the game load times are pretty good though compared to other games.....

    I time trial all the Supercars at Monza and Nurburg. Please PD indicate in the leaderboards information the tyre used. This would be very helpful.

    Thanks.

    Without the electronic speed limiter, the P1 or the P1 GTR is said to go to speeds beyond anything, perhaps maybe faster than McLaren F1 territory.

    Polyphony made the McLaren P1 GTR one hell of a beast. One can only imagine what speed the road-going version could reach (if it does come too, and with Racing: Super Soft tires, with the setup barely even touched). It may have 83hp less but it has far less drag, allowing for an even more insane top speed...

    Oh well, Polyphony's aerodynamics physics at its finest...

    (The McLaren P1 GTR even has similar downforce values to an average Gr. 3 car.)

    And on another note, on the Nurburgring, the Tesla can even lap the Nordschleife faster than the 2017 Alpine A110.

    I don't understand why some people Always need to complain about the free content we get.

    I don't Always Love every car they add to the game but i have to see the big picture. We all have diffrent car tastes.

    As far as i can see this is a great update
    Feature some brand new cars to the series like the mclaren P1 gtr and Ferrari f50 and still people complain about it. No thats not cars i wanted stuff like that.

    We got Ferrari f40 and Chevrolet Corvette C3
    Last christmas update.
    Now we have the Ferrari f50 and Corvette c2.
    About time we got another Corvette. Hope they can bring more of them next year.

    However great christmas update intrested in how they new Tokyo layouts are
