    Interesting too, is that this cheat never worked in the arcade time trial.

    I just tried this in the arcade time trial and the car gets reset. I'm not going to try it online and risk getting one of PD's arcane bans! :ouch:

    I do sorta miss the backing into the pit box money glitch though.

    It is a game exploit, so the burden is on the developer to fix this. Putting tyrewalls isn't enough, if you leave the racetrack with 4 wheels, you cannot score a time or something.

    The odd thing is the time penalty for hitting barriers (a.k.a. The Anti-Wallriding Penalty) is instant. Not sure why PD can’t just make the Track Limits Violation penalty instant too (in time trial mode at least)

    However, I don’t mind having these barriers here, because as one person said in this thread, it’s basically just Polyphony Digital’s middle finger to GTS’ ne’er do wells

    As I said, it was present in GT5/6 and sometimes even harsher.

    GTS doesn't have one, for some reason.

    I've got no idea why it's like this, maybe something to do with lag or connections being a factor?

    You don't need to worry about lag and connections when you do a damn time trial.

    If you want 7y olds to play your game, you gotta offer some sandboxes to play with :sly: ...

    That's a good point, although this case does have some similarity to the Goodwood race a while back and some others where people have exploited the game mechanics by crossing the line before the system can/has registered the infringement.
