    Glad those TE37Vs came back around. Will be my wheel of choice for the Beat and S660. I hope.

    If anyone's interested, there's currently 73 of the "gaps" I refer to in the article left - spaces in the paint choices that have paints either side (such as G2 Small Flakes and G8 Small Flakes) without the paints in the middle appearing yet.

    One of this week's paints, Y5 Small Flakes is outside those gaps, but fills in a known pattern: 8 of the 13 paint finishes offered so far in Y have had Y1-Y5, while Small Flakes was only at Y1-Y4. Y5 Small Flakes brings that to 9, leaving Matte and Matte Metallic. No Y6 paint has ever appeared, and no Dark paint higher than Y2.

    Looking at all the similar holes, there's around 90 more paints potentially remaining.

    I know there's going to be a pun in all of these headlines, but I can never 4C it.

    I think we need new Mileage Exchange cars. Maybe road versions of the F-Type and Beetle Gr3 cars?

    That might affect our GT Sport quiz :lol:

    We've not seen anything to indicate new versions of these homologation cars, which is a pity as they're quite cool. However, I suspect people are collecting them - because they're quite cool - and not really driving them. Gr.3 races are a lot more common than N500 ones... If PD is tracking usage stats (as I expect it would be) it might not see any merit in spending time adding any more of them.

    I think that there was one a while back - I recall several people complaining that they'd bought the race car but couldn't enter the race...

    Edit: Yep, in January. It was for the 4C Gr.3 Road Car :lol:

    What about trackspecced N cars. I still miss the Miata with the roll cage, tow hook and wing from the Copperbox build...

    Wasn’t the Mustang a Gr.3 Road Car too?

    No, the Giallo Modena is for Ferrari and the McLaren Orange is for McLaren.

    Not what I meant. Alfa sounds like 'half a' (in English English). Sorry for the confusion.

    That's right, I forgot about that! I wish they would come around more often.

    I wonder if the Gr3 road cars are balanced enough to all race together as their own class? Or maybe they are better off as only one make races?

    Not sure, but definitely wish we could get more use out of them in sport mode.

    I would love for PD to do an NSX Gr.3 Road car, similar to the '05 NSX-R Prototype LM Road Car from GT4. That was probably my favorite car in the GT series and it sounded awesome. Also, that '99 Mazdaspeed RX-7 GT-C from GT2 was a pretty nice prize car if I remember correctly.

    That's a very interesting notion and we should make a lobby one night to race them all together. They're all in N500 so they would get BOP if that was turned on. Without it they're all pretty close but remember the Gr.B road cars are 4WD vs the Gr.3 are RWD.

    Gr.3 cars are Base off fantasy cars that PD made, not real life GT3. So Honda, Hyundai, Jag etc.

    How about something like the Tuned cars from GTHDC and GT5P. I liked them.

    Do you have a chart/spreadsheet of paints that have and have not shown up? That would be interesting to look at.

    The update will fall right before the next mileage exchange update, it’d be cool if more cars were secretly added to the mileage exchange cycle, though there’s no “trend” to go off of, so I have no clue what else could be added if PD decided to do so. More Gr. 3 road cars would be the most straight forward and obvious way to go, but would probably only be possible with PD’s imaginary cars. I could see the Jag, Hyundai, and Beetle, just off the top of my head.

    I also think it’d be cool if some of the Gr. 4 cars got road-going counterparts. I know they’re already nearly street-able as is, but I think removing a spoiler but retaining most of the remaining aero and structural mods, plus the tighter suspension setup would simultaneously be able to add a little more diversity in the N-classes, as well as making some imaginary pseudo-“S/R/GT/GTR” models of road cars. The Atenza particularly stands out to me in the regard.

    You could also go the other way and make Gr. 4 cars out of some of cars thatve arrived post-launch. Some (like the new Alpine A110) have real-life models, but others like the Suzuki Swift would make a good addition to the field, and would also get the brand’s foot in the door for Sport Mode and the FIA races.

    What is the Gr. 3/B road car cycle? When will the Mustang be back as that's the only one I need. There are seven total right?
