    I had to post this. One of my favorite vintage Golf ads.

    If anyone cares to know: If you decide to go through the pit road instead of going through the turn 2 hairpin, it's a 2 second penalty. I was worried something may be broken there.

    I'll also say I was pleasantly surprised by the Toyota E63, very fun drift car. The Ford GT was also fun, but felt like it could use some downforce (we need the race car). Great looking car though.

    Edit: I was worried Laguna was going to feel like a glorified Red Bull ring, but it's a pretty fun track! Hoping for Gr.4 race B there next week.

    This was the main thing I was upset about.

    I also think this is a myth. Of course, N cars will for obvious reasons never brake like Gr. cars, but they brake just fine if people use the right technique.

    Finally got on track. What's the deal with the giant sausage kerbs on every single corner at Laguna Seca? Is that a real world update or just for the game to discourage corner cutting? They're way too close in because you can legally get two wheels over the rumble strip but now that area has the kerb and it hits your inside wheel, launching you up in the air. Even if you only graze it slightly it will greatly mess up your car's trajectory. WTF

    I don't mind if they're there in real life because realism but if they added it for their crappy "esports" game then I'm not happy.

    They were just added last winter for IndyCar to my understanding.

    I just watched some onboards from this year's IMSA race. They're there so I'll just have to get used to it. Oh well

    PD didn’t add things that aren’t on the real track.

    And now I know. Didn't they add things to Spa that aren't there in real life?

    Yes but only because "players" abused the "track limits" online...

    Those additions only appear in "Sport" mode

    I come here with heavy heart.. to profess my disappointment in this thing. The engine only revs a little over 7000, which could be OK, but then it doesn't sound like anything. A faintly muffled Porsche flat six. I guess I was expecting it to be slower but more fun, squirrely and exciting than a 996 GT3. Even the handling was disappointingly good :lol: It felt like it was on rails on sports hard tires.

    Also sad was the Ford GT. It's pretty fun to drive, but sounds like a big nothing. I suppose that's sort of authentic but jeeze.

    Amuse S2000 Gt1 has the best handling in Road cars.

    I guess there's something PD are close to getting right with Gr.4 Custom Races. Less FF cars at Laguna Seca. NOticed on;l the TT Cup is preset.

    Flipped back and forth between different tracks and also selected an FF, to see if the grid at LS changed.

    Now, two things, (1) AWD cars are present: Veyron, Atenza and Evo. PD are nearly there to make an all RWD Gr.4 race. (2) AI doing their mid-corner braking. At Spa, the AI are fast. Aggressive in blocking and keep up speed in the corners. LS AI are just slow. Bathurst slow. PD programmed the AI to "stop" at every entry, middle and exit of every corner. A shame.

    I really like the handling of the new Porsche, the front is really well-planted and the brakes are just brilliant. New N300 meta perhaps ?

    The biggest surprise tho would be the Toyota. I kinda expected it to be a boat but it was anything but that. My favourite car of the bunch.

    The VW was also really pleasant to drive. Althought hot hatches aren't really my thing, this one is an exception.

    I also like how presice is the handling ofthe new Ford GT, as well as the breaking. However, on high speeds the understeer really kicks and turns the car into a boat.

    Laguna Seca... The corkscrew seems easier than previous GTs. Can't wait for it to show up in the daily race. The carnage at the top of the hill will be entertaining.

    I would have liked some audible chassis rumble when taking the Corkscrew. The dip at Brands Hatch makes more noise, which seems odd in comparison.

    At this particular track, I'm actually quicker in the Crown versus the 993. Stock settings, SM tyres, BOP ON. Two runs in two days. What's funny is, I went equally as slow.

    Is there a list of the new GT League rounds? Like where they take place? I think seven rounds were added, with one at Laguna Seca for the events focusing on MR cars, Super Formula, and the Nissan Z cars - plus a Gr.1 endurance race at Spa-Francorchamps. I suppose I was curious about the remaining three rounds.

    The car isn't OEM though. It has modified parts and components to it. But yes, it does have great handling due to its aerodynamics.

    Wasn’t that extremely controversial in Japan back when it was announced? Didn’t Toyota just cancel that color?
