    Hey guys,

    Is there a way to see Time Trial replays from other players on a specific track in-game?

    Only if he shared the replay.

    In Sport Mode you can download any top 10 players' best lap.

    If/when more extensive tuning returns to the series (e.g. installing rear wings & flat floors), what if the n-series were split into two broader groups where BoP could take effect:

    -One being for stock vehicles, and instead of being divided (and thus, affected by BoP) by power, it could be by various motifs used in the campaign. For example, there could be a group for the "Gentlemen's Agreement" JDM cars, and another for track day-only cars like the P1 GTR, Vulcan, and Zonda R. Or another class based on the "Tuning Car Grand Prix" event, which would include various cars picked from SEMA and the Tokyo Auto Salon. Meanwhile, another class could be based on the "Sport Truck Race" event - I could even see the Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 and Dodge Ram Rebel joining the two current trucks in GTS, in that regard. Overall, this could increase synergy between the campaign and online play, too, as well as get players to try a variety of vehicles.

    -The other is more like the current N-Series model, but only non-stock, player-modified road cars would be permitted. More specific tuning may be enabled or disabled, but the bigger thing that'd define this group would be permitting stuff like the rear wings and flat floors, as well as more notable weight reductions and power increases. (See also: the current "inter-class" N-series cars.)

    In addition, for the sake of UX, I'd have sub-groups for Gr.X, as I believe Gr.X is defined by cars that are too unusual to be affected by BoP - or too similar to another, in the case of the two SF19 cars. The cars within Gr.X would still be unaffected by BoP, but would be sorted a bit more neater by their more specific motifs. Given the current cars in Gr.X, I'd have a group for open-wheelers, the Red Bull cars, vintage race cars*, drift-spec cars, the VGTs, and cars that use alternative fuels like the i3 and Model S. This wouldn't mean the cars would be potentially affected by BoP, but instead, I think it'd just be a good way to sort the cars in Gr.X by more specific motifs.

    * Though I'd personally create a couple BoP-eligible groups for this, like a Gr.1-Vintage and Gr.3-Vintage, as many of the historic race cars in Gr.X are either historic sports prototypes (e.g. Ferrari 330 P4) or grand tourers (e.g. Shelby Daytona Coupe).

    EDIT: And this would be on top of having the RM mechanic return, where you could obtain the made-for-game race cars (e.g. Gr.3, Gr.4, Gr.B) by taking their road-going models (including the made-for-game homologation specials) and being able to RM them. Meanwhile, the actual real-world race cars would only be buyable through the dealerships. Here were some examples of what "paths" there'd be:

    Lamborghini Huracan -> Gr.4
    Alfa Romeo 4C Gr.3 Road Car -> Gr.3
    Alfa Romeo 4C -> Gr.4
    Hyundai Genesis Coupe -> Gr.4, Gr.3, or Gr.B
    Subaru WRX STI -> Gr.4 or Gr.3
    Subaru WRX STI Gr.B Road Car -> Gr.B
    Ford Focus ST -> Gr.B
    Volkswagen Beetle (A5) -> Gr.3

    EDIT2: And in addition, maybe the RM mechanic could also function as a way to have a "uniform" sort of tuning for that second group, for player-modified cars that I had mentioned. You could buy some parts individually as you go through the campaign, or you could get them all (or the rest, if you had already bought & installed some) in a package through the RM mechanic.

    Searching for Alsace mission only found posts in this thread, so I'll ask here. The last race of one of the mission stages is 15 laps of Alsace Gr.4. I won the race easily enough by doing a 1 stop with the NSX and using Race Soft tyres. Now, I know I'm not the best driver in the world, but HOW are people doing 27:50 or so?!! I did 30:39, I know I could do it faster with more practice, but I know the track reasonably well, having driven the Gr.B Nations Cup race there, and I'm normally more like 30 secs slower than the top split winner for a 30 minute FIA race, so I'm a bit perplexed how people are going nearly 3 minutes faster than me.

    Edit: Never mind, I figured it out. There's no BOP, so you can increase power and reduce weight with mileage points. You can probably also tune the car. I did 28:45, 55 secs slower than #1 on the leaderboard, which is more plausible as I could definitely go quite a bit faster than I did.

    Tried to play the game this morning but can't update because of space. Up until now I just deleted other games but you know, I kind of want to try others games too. So I'm considering deleting GTS.

    What kind of console/hard drive only lets me keep 1 game at a time? :confused:

    I still don't get what the implied difference is between "Show off Your Cars," "Cruising" and "Cafe" when picking a further description for lobbies. They all sound like they mean the same thing. (On another note, I think it'd be great if we could get the ability to have drift trials and/or time attacks in lobbies, where you wouldn't need to worry about other cars being on-track because it'd be a one-at-a-time sort of deal.)

    One full of other stored media.

    The PS4 requires enough free space to copy the entire game it's updating... because it does precisely that. GT Sport is a hair over 100Gb right now, so you need a hair over 100Gb of free space in order to update it.

    Even given the space required for the OS, even the original 500Gb PS4 is good for two really big games and a handful of smaller ones - or three big ones - so long as you don't fill up the Capture Gallery with a load of captured video and images. A 1Tb console should rarely need much maintenance in terms of storage unless you're habitually playing six different AAA titles. And you can always expand the storage with an external drive.

    Hey all,

    I finally decided to bite and got Sport today (it was only like 7$, no biggie), did some minor progress in singleplayer etc

    I am a bit confused about the garage
    So there are several markers for the cars owned
    • Blue is the one currently chosen
    • Pink is the ones you get for free as gifts (e.g. school reward, daily workout etc)
    • Yellow is the ones lended to you when you sign up for a manufacturer contract (which to my understanding is only concerns the online)
    • White is for the ones you purchased directly from PS Store
    But then there's also a Red dot and it marks "DLC cars". Does this mean there are vehicles that can only be purchased via Store and unobtainable otherwise? Else it seems kinda redundant to have both Red and White markers

    The red dot indicates that you purchased the car from the PlayStation Store instead of through Brand Central. :) There are no cars locked behind a "paywall." Also, welcome to Gran Turismo Sport!

    I thought the red dot was for the free cars you get for special editions? I have Gr.B cars in my garage with red dots but I haven't bought a car from the PS store.

    I don’t know about this stuff either, but have fun man. I bought GTS on Saturday and already have 18 cars... Not all of them are great mind you, but I have a few good ones to pick.

    I’m having a blast. I honestly haven’t thought about playing SFV since.

    I haven’t tried online yet (still doing missions and stuff) but I can’t wait.

    No. The red dot is for bonus cars from preorders or special editions - like the Day 1, Deluxe, or Spec II editions.

    So that's why there's a heap of unused space on the console... It's space to copy the entire game file.:scared:

    A completely stupid way of doing things, when you could just update the single game files within a folder, but I guess the PS4 has games in some weird encrypted ISO format with a partition created for each.
    Probably why we can’t save more replays because the partition isn’t allowed to be expanded by the game and is already hard limited / preset.

    Something im curious about guys, the discover section bit where you show off photos,decals, replays etc etc, it shows a maximum of 100 comments off people but I noticed the little speech bubble can say over 100, as there has actually been over 100 comments, is there anyway to see more than 100...

    I think both the Gr.B road cars, Lancer and WRX from the mileage exchange have up to 10/90 torque splits now.

    You cant actually change it from the tune settings menu nor do the settings hold after you finish the race (afaik?) however this is fine.

    Are other 4wd cars so equipped now or is it only the 4wd mileage exch. cars?

    Was just shortly visiting the Salzburg Ring while travelling in Austria today and came across a peculiar sight. What are the odds.:drool::lol:

    Audi Driving experience was in town - ten 2019 R8 V10s, bunch of Q8 e-trons and then this thing..

    Hey all.

    I was wondering if this is a viable change that PD could make, or could someone tell me why it's not possible ( if indeed it is ) ?

    If it can be done, PD should really change where you can select a different livery for your car.

    Take it out of Home and put it in the section, just before entering a track where you choose which car you are going to use.
    When choosing your car, the next screen should be the livery screen that is in your home area. It would be nice to be able to change your livery for each race, in a much more convenient section of menus, rather than having to navigate to Home all the time.

    I've seen plenty of times where the livery isn't shown on my loading screen, but is perfectly there on the actual track and preview area, once you've chosen everything. So I don't see why the liveries can't be chosen at the pre race menus rather than only at Home. As it appears that it's loading the livery in as it's loading in the track, rather than having to load it all in from the main menus first.

    OR...is there a good reason for the livery menu to only be viable from the Home menu only ?

    Just wanted to understand why or why not, as I have no idea myself :)

    I have wondered the same myself. So often I'm about to start a race, or even have just set up a lobby, realizing that I don't have the right livery. It's really frustrating to have to leave the lobby and go to home, just to change livery.

    Now, I am no programmer, but it feels like this shouldn't have to be this much of a hassle :)

    Hello!
    Are there any rumors regarding the appearance of DTM cars in the game? Organized two joint races, one already held in Germany, the second will be in Japan. I think DTM cars can be placed in Gr.2

    All DTM machines use Hankook tires and GTS has a contract with Michelin. So I don't think DTM cars will come to GTS.

    Random question. Is there anyway we can change the music played in-game (such as maybe adding music files to our PS4 library, and/or disabling some of the songs the game plays)?
