A few years ago I did preorder WRC10 and had some fun at my PS4. Now I have a round wheel and PS5 and that's why I return. There are newer offerings like "WRC Generations" or "EA WRC". I cannot recommend between them.

Regarding ACC I like to quote @half_sourly : 'there is a thread for that' or something similar... 😉
I was a little hesitant to buy one of these 2 rally games but in the end I told myself that I had to spend a little time on ACC since it is apparently the only real simulation that we can have on PS5....but I have not yet managed to find the same pleasure that I have with GT7
 
The results for TT61 at Nürburgring GP in the Mazda RX-8 Spirit R '12 are over here.

I've also updated the opening post with the index of TTs and the second post with the community leader boards (or will shortly).

Interim Results for TT62 at Autodrome Lago Maggiore - East Reverse - Honda Civic Type R (EK) Touring Car.

I simply cannot resist and did buy the EA game, too and still look at the "Generations"... ACC is great and I did buy all DLCs without regret. The reason why I play most of the time GT7 is the community at GTPlanet, especially the lunatics in this section.
 
Had a longer session this evening (30 laps) - optimals have improved a little from this afternoon at 27.7 but PB has now dropped a tenth and FINALLY I’m in the 27’s. Went through a period of forgetting how to do sector 3, but this lap is pretty good. Will keep chasing as and when I get the chance this week, but if I don’t get any more time or don’t improve, I’m relatively happy with this.

Hey man, awesome time, you should be proud of yourself being in the top 400!

Is it true, do you have any advice or is this just a joke ? you don't like ACC @half_sourly ?
 
I don’t understand but I love you all the same 😊 I don't really speak English I use Google translate but I think you noticed that 😂 but maybe that's why I don't understand the joke 🤥
No problem. The important messages are: 1) ACC is a great game. 2) There are forum threads over here to talk about ACC, because the moderators don't like people using threads not meant for the topic.

EDIT: By the way, English is my second language too, so I understand your pain.

The Genesis VGT with sports tyres at Monza is gonna be a big no for me. Totally gonna skip that week of time trial.

Back to the Lake!
I have the feeling it's going to be the same for me, watched Kie's truggle to get into the 37's live at work on my second screen...., i haven't driven ofcourse, but a 800hp 1000kg VGT on sports??......, looks like a lot of work :lol: :lol:
I think i will trying to get a safe gold and hop back to Maggiore to chase some people here....... :lol:
 
I never thought I would say this....but I rather they put a Jimny on one of those rally tracks. And I hate rally tracks.....

Having said that....I still have to give it a go to see how I really feel. May be it can change my mind?

But that's for later.....I'm coming down with something, have all the cold/flu symptoms minus the fever. I feel like I got run over by a space battleship 🤧

get well soon
 
Did 10 laps at LM with the Civic yesterday. No big improvement but as I was focusing on the NBGP+RX8 until then, that is not so surprising.

Used a ghost too (a gold time) to try to help a bit.

Tiny improvements on best lap, optimal and medium.

Need to work on that. And given how the new TT seems not very appreciated, I guess I won't fancy it either, more time for the Civic then !
 
Genesis VGT, it is awesome, maybe they could have picked a better color like red or white?
The whole car is finished in the brand’s striking Magma Orange color, inspired by Korea’s volcanoes and “the emotion, passion, and vibrancy” of Korean culture.

those are the withdrawal symptoms of all those Civic miles....

Hope you get well soon mate, stay strong 👍 👍
 
Got a silver score on Monza with the @=%$&* VGT after few laps and I officially declare I won't come back on this 💩 TT

More important: let's pray all together for our international Muffin who fights to stay alive (possibly the side effects after his abduction). Get well soon, mate 💪
 
Had two days off GT7, and went straight back to the Civic TT today. Funny how muscle memory works, I was so familiar with the track that I didn't need to warm up. Only 6 laps later and a new PB of 1:27.594

It's a very satisfying TT to do over and over again. Maybe there are two more tenths left in the tank.
Wow man, gratz! Did you happen to use the MT during that run? I'm stuck at 1'31.110, near silver.
