    So whats the deal w/ not being able to get close to an object to take a picture anymore? Some stupid red circle shows up and says that you have to move back. Is there any way to get up close shots any more ?

    I was trying to take some picks on Monza and it wouldn't let me. I never saw that before and thought that it must have been part of one of the update patches. So is it premo or standard baised?

    It look like they have set a limit to keep a decent resolution in the pics of the standard cars.

    Not now, please not now. I can't believe this.:(

    It looks like my DFGT has no lives left...
    And Fanatec still hasn't given me any responce (It's been 4 weeks!!).

    By the way I tried the combo with my DS3 and it felt nice. Good choice Kevin.:tup:

    Oh wow just checked in to see what was happening this week. Now I wish I had some time on my hands to have a crack at it. Oh well With a Bucks Night on this week I very much doubt I will get a run.Will definately try though. Good luck to all getting a quick clean lap of the full track.

    Wow, we're 0.101 apart at T9. It's fun to compare the splits at each sector and figure out the story. I was ahead by 1sec+ in the GP track and then you pulled ahead in your blistering brown-worthy T8 that was over 1sec faster. I've only tried stock settings and Chris' settings so far, but hope to try them all! :cheers:

    Can I get a second opinion? Somewhere on sector 12-13...


    [​IMG]

    There was a slight... deviation on one of my laps last night. I got a faster OT but definitely lost a bit of focus afterwards. I ended up trashing a corner later.

    If the tires are barely on the kerbstones... does that still count? Am I being too paranoid here?

    Note: I have not posted this timed run. Also, as you can see the direction of the car and the kerbs, it does get closer to the edge without totally being off.

    As if I wasn't spending enough time in the hills of Germany as it is. :rolleyes: I've been slowly improving on this track with all the driving I've been doing for CSL's Nordschleife shootout. I wonder how much of it will translate to this car and these tires. I'm surely going to be in the dog house with this one... :lol:

    What can brown do for you? :D

    Looks clean to me. As long as they stay on the red and white you are good.

    Apparently GT.com doesn't like to be hot hosted, but I was able to look at your pic by copying the URL as if I was doing a post edit.

    Anyhow, that's clean at that moment, and looks like momentum is carrying you back in line, not off line.

    I would prefer that people turn in runs that are not so close, but I know how tough it is to get a clean lap here, let alone an unquestionably clean one.

    Sorry about that, I did the preview and it was working fine.

    Yeah it's not what I would prefer either, I hope to put in another lap that's more unmistakably clean. That and I did sort of trash a corner afterward. Like you said though, this is a tough lap. The reason I even ask, is that I may not get the time. Such terrible timing to go on vacation! This is such a good combo, and I wish I could more into it.

    I realise a video of the 1st sector this week is a bit like throwing a stone in the ocean but here it is anyway :p
