    3. It is strongly advised that you be as specific and detailed as possible with the information including a brief description of the bug or improvement before it was fixed/changed (if applicable) and how. If English is not your first language that's ok, just do it to the best of your ability.

    It think they fixed the shifting up when unpausing glitch, at least in the Mini. I'll do more testing to confirm.

    Edit: It only seems to be fixed in time trial mode. The bug is still present in single race and GT league.

    It seems that Polyphony has started implementing raytracing rendering. A glimpse for GT in PS5.

    This would appear to be happening for all the cars (Both Road cars and Race Cars). Neat addition :tup:

    Just noticed this on the older evo as well. Appears in General that the "Lancer Evolution" Name has been shorted across all generations.

    Maybe it's since 1.24.
    But... hasn't it been fixed in race yet?

    Yep. I saw the grass moving at Red Bull Ring, on the front straight.

    It seems to be the case that everwhere the car passes close to the grass it moves (during replay).


    Untill now I have only seen The Red Bull Ring doing this.
    Have to see if other tracks also have this moving grass.

    I could have sworn I saw a patch notes list saying Red Bull Ring will be available in reverse. Not in game.

    You did, but it also seemed too strange to be true.
