    I'm happy to say I'm not all that familiar with the Penalty System. :)
    So this may be nothing.

    But I was just doing my daily mileage around SSX in a lobby.
    For whatever reason the lobby I loaded from my saves had wall collision penalties turned on.

    I banged the wall a few times and picked up a few 5 second penalties. (Yes, I know.) :lol:
    Dropping the throttle, of course, started the penalty time counting down.
    The thing that stood out to me though was that no matter how slow I was driving, the penalty would stop counting down as soon as I touched the throttle.
    And I kinda thought that if you were going slower than expected, the penalty clock continued to go down regardless of whether you had your foot on the throttle or not.
    I could basically turn the countdown on or off like a light switch, and it didn't matter if I was doing 450kmh or 150kmh.
    (This is only running free laps in a lobby, not racing)

    But as I say, this may well be common knowledge, and not in the slightest bit new. :p

    I checked the eligible cars for La Festa Cavallino and Midship Challenge and the Ferrari Dino 246 GT are now available to use in those two GT League events, unlike last update where it was previously ineligible for those two events.

    Also the Race Demo that pops up when you're idle in the main menu for a while now shows the track logo and name on the top left, as shown in the spoiler tag below. Don't think this was a thing until now.

    “- Various adjustments have been made to sound effects.”

    This one is interesting. What kind of adjustments were made to sound effects? Were some of the cars had their engine sounds changed? Can someone confirm this, please? :confused::confused:

    I'm getting more off track to on track debris noise, for a longer period. Like dirt kicked up, clangs around the tyres longer.

    No physics change I've noticed. I did online time attacks at Bathurst and Dragon Trail Gardens with no changes in my lap times

    Exhaust backfire sound has definitely changed on replays. It’s more bassy and can be heard from various angles

    Interesting, I just noticed a few days ago how short the draw distance was in mirrors and thinking "surely they could do better!" I'll be checking this one in the morning :D

    In the Mileage Exchange, the class of the two cars you can buy has been added.

    I'm also pretty sure there's new fonts available for car numbers in the livery editor.

    Tire wear has changed, so that's somewhat of a physics change.

    The Ghost car feature is broken for me :/

    Started to do some tuning and in Arcade Mode Time Trial I do a couple laps with my car and no Ghost, im hitting the show/hide ghost button and nothing. Even double checked if the button was still mapped correctly and it is but no ghost.

    I tried different cars,no ghost

    Different tracks, no ghost

    Closed GTS, reopened GTS

    No Ghost


    Que-Passa?

    Yes. Just listen to this. Incidentally Autopolis is the best track to test.

    The suspension - especially front, looks very soft in GTR. :odd:

    But that tearing exhaust/engine sound is nice. Come far from vacuums have we.. :cheers::lol:

    While watching an online race replay, the player names and flags(above the cars) were turned off by default. Previously, I had to manually turn these off with my QWERTY keyboard. Don't know if it's a bug or the new default but I prefer it.

    I read someone else saying that too. Had a go a wee while ago and it's working fine for me. Bit strange eh?
