    How does the points system work? Is it like in Project Gotham Racing, where it is judged by the types and lengths of drifts you do, built up by combos?

    Nice video there, too. Makes me want to have a PS3 even more...

    That video is impressive, the physics look so real, its really graceful as it sweeps round the beds....and it definately sells the Ferrari... :)

    The Ferrari is so ridiculously easily to drift, you don't need to accelerate to do it. The back end slides out on the tight bends while just coasting through them. But, it is the most hard to control since it spins out so easily. Very delicate throttle control is necessary to tame this beast.

    The easiest car to drift is the Toyota, IMO. Even with race tires on it. It's very easy to control and the most fun, unlike the Ferrari.

    I wish I can drift as good as you in GT:HD. I am trying to drift the G35 right now, but I am way slower than you. :dunce: It really looks like I am only drifting at 10 MPH....

    What tires did you use by the way? I use the Racing 1 for the front and Sport 2 on the rear. I just pick those two out of randomness.

    I would also like to know what tires everyone is using. I tried the Racing 1 and sport 2, and hated it...spun out too easy for me. I just went with both N2's and I've found that to be a lot easier...at least with 4wd Evo's.

    I couldn't tell a big difference in tire compounds. I used N2s most of the time.

    Man, I'm very disappointed in that those sounds. I would think even a company like Ferrari would get them to do it right.

    If you click on the persons name on the leaderboard you can view exactly what they used, if they had traction control, which transmission choice and the tire choices.

    Thank you very much, I appreciate it. What board did you go from 6th to 144th? That's pretty crazy.

    Well get back in there and kick my butt off the top.

    I pulled off a 4403 point drift. That was a good one. :tup:

    I'm getting the S-video cord tomorrow for $40. It turns out, Best Buy and Circuit City will have a similar cord for 30 bucks, but it won't be released until February. so i think spending the Extra $10 now is worth it.

    Wow, that Ferrari does sound horrible. Just what I feared. Get some of the greatest-sounding cars in the world and make them sound like crap. Hopefully they'll fix it with Version II of the concept, or at LEAST in GT5. The only reason I'd care about driving a Ferrari is for the sound. Without that, all it has is looks, and looks are only good for pictures.

    Oh, nice drifting though. Looks like the drift physics are nearly the same, although possibly a little easier. Can't wait to see what it's like when they release GT5-level physics with the next update.
