    Sweet, I’m looking at tacking this around Bathurst later this week in GT3 race. I’m always using V8 Supercar liveries on my Mazda GR3 and Mustangs pretending it’s Supercars. :gtpflag:

    No wonder I could catch that GT-R in the RX-V.
    Let's see about that Atenza shedding some weight.

    OH! Supra sheds some weight 1,462kg to 1449kg. Nice!

    Audi TT not on the list?
    Edit: TT is now in the list.

    I thought it would come along on the 25th. Hmm. Okay, i'm installing the update right now so I can try it out and maybe make my own livery for it.

    The car has won me over. Not only it looks good but also for me it does well under BoP.

    Did a lap around the Nordschleife with the car.

    Not a fan of the front end, the lights in particular. They make it look sad, like it's reflecting upon it's own actions and needs to appolagise to it's mum.

    Yet they did nothing at all to help the Gr.3 4C? PD is pissing me off with these mid season changes.

    And given 21 bhp more. It's therefore probably closer to the performance envelope of the other cars now.

    Good to see the Gr.4 Mustang also getting a weight break. 14kg might not look like much, but hopefully it will have a more positive effect on handling, acceleration and tyre wear in lobby conditions. Thankfully the GT LM seems to be unaffected by these changes. :)

    Will these changes kerb the '08 GT-R's dominance in Gr.2? We shall see...

    Chuffed they've added to the nostalgic cup might boot up the old beast again for that, gotta say adding beginner and amateur races is a waste of time though... At this stage adding some more Hamilton-esque tougher races would be the preferred option, still grateful for anything right now...

    Did anyone see the patch note on exiting the pits whilst taking a shortcut has been fixed? Does this mean that exiting over the white line now gives you a penalty? Or was there a bug in the game that I was unaware of?

    Any news about the abrupt end of the Tag Heuer partnership? I find it very surprising.

    I loved that clock feature whilst waiting for races. I'll miss it, to be honest.

    I think it has to do with Fuji Pit entrance.

    Just finished streaming the update and it's awesome. The car is great feels good sounds good, goes through the corners quick. A little lacking in straight line speed but not much. Thank you for the B.O.P update, most of the GR.4 & 3 cars got re-balanced and the 08 GR.2 cars so hopefully no more daily and nations races ending up being one make races. Overall i'm very happy with this update.

    Happy to see some more races being added to Career Mode! As for the Mazda RX-Vision GT3, I still gotta get some credits to buy it.

    Today. It's now replaced with a circle as it looks like the partnership has ended. I've seen this in the undocumented changes thread. But I will get on the game this afternoon and see it later also. Definitely will miss the big watch. One of my favourite features.

    - Fixed an issue wherein exiting the pits through a shortcut would not incur into a penalty in online races.

    I don't.

    That would be awesome but I doubt it. Looks more like there used to be an exploit on some track that we're just not aware of.

    Everything in GTS related to Tag Heuer (except decals maybe) is gone now. So it's safe to say that the partnership has definitely ended.

    The whole entire Tag Heuer things got scrubbed from the whole game.

    Even its whole Brand Central. Goodbye museum pictures and descriptions, I guess.

    So this thing is a Gr.3 car? That surprised me, I thought this was going straight into Gr.X

    Thinking that we were only getting the new Mazda today, the new campaign races were an unexpected bonus for me.
    Whilst off-line racing might not suit everyone, I thoroughly enjoy it and am very grateful for the additional content. :tup:
