    I noticed these when I booted up the game but didn't pay much attention to them because I thought they'd be FIA qualifiers or something. I'll be trying these out later.

    It’s not required to do the daily race Q/TT’s so possibly not for these either.

    Tuning is allowed only in the second event (Civic/Big Willow), which is useless because the 930 is way harder to control.

    Love the fact that these are global. It's a shame VR hasn't been implemented for it although wasn't expecting anything further for VR anyway.

    Interested to see how these pan out, and to see if PD actually offer any more information about them!

    EDIT Have to add, I love the way PD introduce a whole new game mode with absolutely no fanfare whatsoever. Just a single line whispered in the patch notes. If you didn't read the notes you could easily miss that these exist at all. I'm super grateful, but c'mon PD you need to shout about these kind of things!

    The choices are understeer into the desert, or oversteer into the armco :) Seriously though I think this is a great addition to the game, well apart from the short cut at WS.

    Don't think I'll bother with the tuning events but this is still a good addition to the game.

    I’ve got a wicked tune for the Integra, I wonder if it will transfer over to the Civic? They are pretty similar cars.

    There's a bug at Willow where you can cut the last 4 corners and shave off like 10 seconds. And yes I abused of it. I'm 4th worldwide atm. They should patch this ASAP.

    omg! Of course. Was looking forward to to this, but now, no. How hard can it be to just set the track limits to the tarmac. Its been like the since the release.

    For some reason I can't enter the EK Civic trial. I have the car but it's not showing up when I click on the event.

    Hopefully this feature works because Pikes Peak now has its chance being in the game.

    I remember how people were wondering how pikes peak will fit in gt sport now we have the feature.

    Well, the Integra tune doesn’t work on the Civic lol. I was also reminded why I don’t like tuning in these things, the leaders are 14 seconds ahead somehow? And I’m at #51 Overall. :lol:

    You might want to watch a replay to see why they are so much faster.....

    Turns out part of the track is optional.

    It won’t let me watch any of the replays for some reason?

    Geez. Willow is mostly sweeping turns. So, cutting 4 turns would basically leave you doing donuts in the infield. :lol:

    It’s disappointing to hear the old penalty system is in play, whereby they can be scrubbed. That being said I think having penalty zones in quali/time trial is also super detrimental as quite often it’ll invalidate the next lap.

    For TT mode I think simply adding penalty time onto the final time would be the best way.

    No credit or car prices as the GT6 special events??:indiff:

    Don't think I gonna use this mode quite often, cause it's basically same as the daily races time trials.

    Hopefully PD make those time trials as the special events of GT 5 and 6....when you achieve x time established a car gift or an amount of credits.

    I was really enjoying trying to tame the beast before work this morning. I hope this is an example of the types of combos we are gonna get for time trials, it's a great start thats for sure.

    Sorry for the bad pic but.....
