    For each update released, there lies the potential for changes undocumented in the initial patch notes. Please report any Undocumented changes you find in the current update and I'll update the OP as much as possible to reflect those changes found.


    1. It is encouraged that you make an effort in verifying these changes as much as possible.
    2. If you need help from the community to verify something, don't be afraid to ask.
    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.



    THIS IS NOT A DISCUSSION THREAD ABOUT THE OFFICIAL CHANGES Only any changes not listed on the official site are disgusted here
    THIS IS NOT A DISCUSSION THREAD ABOUT THE PROS AND CONS OF THE UPDATE or anything else (Such as features being broken or things still not fixed) other than undocumented changes in the update. Keep those strictly to the appropriate threads:

    It was mentioned in another thread, but the Shifter Kart can now be purchased in Brand Central.

    (Previously you could only earn it as a one-time award for getting through the racing etiquette videos).

    None of the 'new' car additions in this update came with the 'new' tag as they usually do... for me at least. did anyone else notice it?.

    The tag was present for GT League events and the Fuji scapes.

    Sport Mode's warm up timer now says: "xx:xx until warm-up is complete." This is likely a bug and will probably be fixed in the next update.

    I just logged into my secondary account and of course the tags were all present there.

    I've no idea then why they did not show for the cars on my main account.

    "The Passion of Doctor Wankel"

    Was it their intention to have the event sound like an erotic movie from the seventies?

    There's a lot more noise of gravel etc hitting the underside of the car after going off or having two wheels on the grass... (It's annoying enough to keep you on track)

    And I didn't notice their ranking before the race (but they were pretty clean while racing), but the drivers that rage quit seem to have had their SR ranking dropped to E..?

    Can you have a look for them on Kudos Prime to see if this is permanent or just how the game lists it?

    They don't get dropped to E. It is just a placeholder, that has always happened

    Ah... it's just how it lists it.

    Shame, as the guy who messed up my race ramming me off track quits and only lost 3 SR points.

    That was inspired by the Japanese title of "Dr. Strangelove".
