    Love the track (even though I haven't been on it in something like a year)! Never had much experience with the car, but looking forward to the challenge.

    I like the track too(hate the bus stop though) but as far as the car is concerned ,i've driven it for about ten minutes total in gt5p. Main reason is the steering angle is too low and i need to turn the wheel 90degrees to take even wide corners which is unrealistic and inconvenient. Is there anything i can do about it? I have a g25.

    P.S. I also never discovered how to fix the force feedback and when i drive the f1 i need to apply hulk-esque power..(???)

    That was my initial response too. However, after an hour of driving I think it's not too bad. I would have preferred the Cappucino Tuned on the same track, very fun to drive. Great steering feel, very close to the Lotus Elise.

    As for the F1 it takes sometime to realize how much grip you have, and how much less braking you can get away with. A very intense drive indeed.

    Good luck to all.


    Warning: my G25 got alarmingly hot after my first session with the F1, so be careful, you don't want to damage your wheels just before GT5's arrival.

    Same here for the car,with the track I've got some love/hate relationship.
    Busstop always ruined my laptimes in the old days when I was using the dualshock,but getting (very slowly) used to the wheel,mwah,it's okay.
    The car's a different story though.
    Got 36 of these beauty's in my garage,as a kind of saving deposit when GT5 finally get's in the PS (fingers crossed for that transfer!)
    I'll give this a serious go,who knows,maybe gonna like it with the wheel??
    Good luck all for the last round!

    Never mind the bus stop, F1 flies through it without braking. :D
    (seriously it's hard job to master that chicane)

    So who is the champ? It seems there is no information about that on the first page.

    You get it on the 24th right ?

    Hi Nissman....congratulations to whomever wins : )

    As for GT5, one shop told me 24th, another told me end of the month. I'm just hoping....nothing for sure. How about you?

    By the way, why don't you get some laps on the latest stage with the F1. I know you've been playing F1 2010, so you're already warmed up.

    Best of luck in GT5.
