    I am not worried about my being slow because others have the bug what scares me is what if I have it and and I am actually slower than my current pace? Believe me when I say am slow enough now.

    I only sent a PM but I'll do a copy/paste of the thread as well and post it up.

    HTML errors copying the thread. It redoes it, asks if you're happy, which you are, click post, 3,600 second delay for post flooding...

    I'll put the thread up when they stop punishing my spambot like activity. Give me exactly 1 hour.:lol:

    UPDATE
    I did tonight some tests/races with different settings without the bug (bop on/off, lobby/sportmode, different tire types). First feelings compared to driving with the bug:

    - It is generally more slippier, most at braking and accelerating.

    - The biggest difference was when i raced with hard tires on. So maybe the bug simulate supersoft tires physics.

    - Lap times are about 3+ sec slower. But im not yet used to the new "downgraded" physics.

    Now that this has been brought to light, I am fairly confident the user in this video I captured here is also affected by this bug. It was included in the other thread as well.

    I also wanted to jump on the congratulatory bandwagon and say kudos to @GT_Alex74 , @Spurgy 777 and every one else involved in discovering this issue and bringing it to light, along with @RA1784 who could have kept this to himself and exploited it for his own gain, but instead chose to take up his own time and get to the bottom of this and share it with the community.

    @GT_Alex74 Some videos for you, including the oldest known example of it happening on the 1st November.

    RA vs TRL_AUGH comparison in the Gr3 Porsches at Nurb and RA vs TRL_Furvaros comparison at Interlagos;



    Gordo in the Megane at Nurb, fastest worldwide until people started using M4s;


    DevilzGraveyard vs my lap in the Megane at Bathurst, notice that he has L-Shooter behind him and he beat him fairly easily without much trouble;



    Sennna in Gr4 Megane vs my lap in Gr4 Scirocco (there was an update between the two laps but pretty sure it didn't change much, plus he has a 2.7 second gap to fastest in Americas although quite early in the day). Weird ending to the video as well, doing a race and leading by 6 seconds after 3 laps only to crash into a wall and quit;

    And from 1st November we have this;

    That car is glued to the track. And it's obvious he's not fast enough for that time. He goes down to +/-110km/h through corner 5 (right hander). Another person with the grip bug.

    Also @GT_Alex74 I'm fairly certain that it has nothing to do with the T100 so you can probably take that off the don't know list.

    Or fear they have the bug and are actually a lot worse at the game then they thought ;)
    What if the couple days I ended up in DR.A and everything was going so well were just due to the bug :/

    @Spurgy 777 Yeah I'm pretty sure it is not the cause, but that's still a parameter we haven't thoroughly verified. But yeah, the probability every person concerned switched from a T100 to something else is very low.

    Not exactly sure how that is relevant? Sennna is no longer part of TRL and no other times done by TRL drivers have been remotely questionable.

    I'm sure I encountered this whilst in a daily race yesterday. On the 4th turn of Lake Maggiore, the Porsche who was in front of me seemed to go round the corner much faster than me. Our lines were quite similar but the Porsche in front of me seemed to accelerate out of the corner very fast, as if there was a grip increase at that precise moment.

    And IOF_RACING17 beat this (LIGHTNING's) time by half a tenth of something. And he's unquestionably an alien too. Not to mention he's a formula racing driver IRL.

    WOW indeed. I can only do a 2:03 at best around that track atm (tried it for a couple of hours). I have no inferiority complex tho.

    What about TCS value at -1? Is this typical situation for affected accounts? Someone on your PSN conversation metioned that RA's TCS value in Porsche was -1??

    We never saw a screenshot though. I think it might have been a misunderstanding as no one else saw that.

    It's someone saying he knows someone who said maybe this happened. That's why I didn't mention it in the report. I agree with @zzz_pt on that.

    Props to him and you, keep us updated if you have any feedback ;)

    Also, that McLaren lap is totally legit, I have the same braking points, and can't match braking points from other videos posted in this thread.

    Massive massive appreciation for RA for giving all types of informations about the glitch and the rest of the "gang" for going after this. :bowdown:

    Absolutely AMAZING job guys. Hopefully PD will fix this major issue soon. :gtpflag:
