Update 1.10 Undocumented Changes Thread
As some of you may know by now, PD usually include some little changes and/or features when releasing updates that aren't mentioned in the official update log. So it's up to the community to find them. Any undocumented changes that you find, post them here!

Also, be sure you have some proof or confirmation of what you're saying. Have another person or 2 see if you are 100% sure. Try to be as specific as possible when posting any changes.

This is NOT a discussion thread talking about the update itself. There's a different thread for that. Any bugs or glitches that you find should go in this thread.


Update 1.11 EDIT: Update 1.11 undocumented changes are allowed to be posted here. The reason is that I'm not expecting many changes in a 30 MB update. It wouldn't be worth creating a new thread.

Documented Changes
Vision Gran Turismo
The "Aston Martin DP-100 Vision Gran Turismo" and the "NISSAN CONCEPT 2020 Vision Gran Turismo" have been released.​

After the update has been installed, the cars can be purchased from the [Vision GT] option within the [CARS] section in "My Home". Alternatively, it is also possible to obtain the cars by completing a lap (regardless of the lap time) in the new Seasonal Events, available only for a limited time.

Brake Caliper Paint
It is now possible to repaint the brake calipers on cars equipped with [Racing Brakes] purchased within the [Suspension] menu of [Tuning Parts]. Please note there are certain cars that cannot be repainted using this feature.
Customization of car numbers
More cars have been made compatible with the [Driver Number] feature in the [Garage]. There is also an increased selection of [Base] sheet designs on which the numbers can be displayed.



Engine brake reduction control on formula cars disabled
We have disabled the engine brake reduction control that was active on certain formula cars. (This is a feature that helps you avoid spinning out from excessive braking forces generated by the engine while the throttle is in the off position. This was accomplished by slightly opening the throttle while cornering even with no input to the accelerator.)​

Can any more cars be painted now? I was seriously bummed when I saw that my drift truck (Silverado SST) couldn't be painted.
Tijuana, B.C.
I don't know if this was patched a while back, but the Veyron's HP gauge is now working! :D
It must've been on this update!

I played with the Veyron a few days ago and the power gauge was not working, that's awesome!

- Toyota TS030 and Honda CR-Z TC now have an electric power meter in the HUD underneath the fuel indicator. (All hybrid cars could possibly have this.(?)) [Claim by @TexasTyme214] [Confirmation+Pic by @Cobaiye]​

I can confirm this works on the following Honda Hybrids:

Insight (Older model)​

Insight (Newer Model)


As well as the Spoon CR-Z

And thanks to a replay I had from the laps I did in the Acura NSX Concept, I can confirm it also works:

By default that means the Honda one works as well, which means all the Honda Hybrids do have this working.​

There was some question about the hybrid function on the Nissan VGT.

It is automatic, no push to pass. This is incorrect, while it does drain during normal driving, using the N2O button puts more power to the ground

Charge & drain functions are indicated by an addition to the fuel gauge.

Red arrow pointed left during drain
View attachment 191944

Green arrow pointed right during charge.

View attachment 191945

It does drain even when fuel/tire wear is turned off.

I tested at Daytona tri-oval, stock no oil change.

Ran 4 full laps with hybrid boost
Hit the limiter @214mph in the front straight before turn 1, best lap 43.197
Empty on lap 5
Lap 6, 44.935, 205mph in the same spot.

Seems to be working fine but regeneration is pretty quick under braking/coast.
