Either way you bought mtx since that's the only way to go pass the 100M limit.👍

So no there shouldn't be a trophy for mtx.
You did not read my post, I was gifted PS cards and used them accordingly, I DID NOT BUY MTX.
If you saw money on ground and you were hungry, you would actually not pick it up and get something to eat out of moral superiority? I think not.

And if you watched carefully to the video you would have seen I had

Won more than that 25k in pocket change of MTX to make my 100 million LEGITIMATE.
I should have 100,727,625 if I was to keep all my winnings.

I did a daily grind at LeMan, this time in a McLaren 650 group4 car, rained on lap3 fortunately I guessed right at the end of lap2 and put intermediate tyres on took the lead before lap3 was done and not caught again despite it being wet enough for full wets at one point. Thanks for the 825k.
Then hunted a race not yet won, Tokyo clubman cup 550pp sports tyres only. I took my special VW Beetle out for a run (Porsche engine, whale tail rear spoiler), quick but I hit a few walls, restarted and largely avoided bumping anything came in 3 seconds Infront of much newer cars.

You bought mtx with those psn gift cards.

mtx is the only way the credit limit in GT7 is passed.

But keep saying you didn't the proof is a few post ^.;)

I don't think PD will remove the invite system but it be nice if they added a invite only ticket that gives the player a higher chnace of getting a invite.

The game already has tickets for.

Parts
Engines
Cars

Why not a invite only ticket?
The 6-star car ticket has, so far, been an exclusive to weekly challenges and a thank-you for the years of GT Sport, and has appeared 5 times. Given the cars available (Brand Central cars worth over 450,000 Cr. that are not guaranteed prizes for launch-day menu books) are also one of the prizes from a normal 6-star ticket (20% chance from that ticket), I doubt the car ticket will be put into the workout pool of tickets.

For those who have hit Collector Level 20, the parts and engine tickets each have a 2% chance (or perhaps the engine has a 3% chance based on my outsized results on the Plus account; the reverse-engineers haven't come to an agreement on those odds) of being the workout bonus. Special parts have an overall 8.3% chance of being the workout prize and engines have an overall 3.99% chance of being the workout prize (4.99% if the engine ticket has a 3% chance of showing up).

As a group, for those at or above Collector Level 20, an invitation has a 6.2% chance of being the workout prize (10% chance from a 4-star, which has a 58% chance of being the workout ticket, and 8% chance from a 5-star, which has a 5% chance of being the workout ticket). A specific invitation has only a 0.89% chance of showing up (assuming all 7 are weighted equally). There is room for an invite ticket, especially if it takes away from the 30% chance of getting a 3-star Wheel of Despair.

For those at lower collector levels, the odds are worse, but not zero. Those at Collector Level 15-19 have a 5% chance of getting an invite (0.71% of getting a specific invite), and those at Collector Level 10-14 have a 0.85% chance of getting an invite (0.12% chance of getting a specific invite)

Cause the credits only go pass the amount of MTX you bought.
 
Did the 5-race GT World Championship on my alt. account and won it but it was only because I was on Easy mode and with the Porsche 917 Living Legend from the pre-order.

I did notice that some tracks have "Ninja-Penalty" system on them. I was going too fast and missed a corner on the Le Mans 24h circuit 3-lapper and got resetted before the twin chicanes for going wide on their last exit.

I know I deserved it, but it's kinda heartbreaking that I got put in 9th place when I had a 5-6 seconds lead in a racing simulator.

On the GTP account I ran 2 Nations Cup races (details in that thread). The first was ruined by a self-spin, while the second was a decent top 5. The 4-star Wheel of Despair gave a Toyota Crown safety car, which got scrapped for 23,840 Cr.

For credits, I set up the Red Bull Junior for a no-stop 8-lap (theoretical) run. Weather intervened and turned it into a 2-stop/6-lap race.

On the Plus account, I ran the Jaguar XJ13 around Sarthe. Though I set it up for a 1-stop run, weather again intervened. Despite a pair of wrecks and an unnecessary change to full-wets, it was a win. The all-cash 4-star Wheel of Despair gave the 2nd-low-showing/lowest-legal 30,000 Cr.
 
-Engine swapped the R35 GT-R, fully modified and took it to Brands Hatch
-Engine swapped my Sprinter Trueno and took it to Suzuka
-Engine swapped the Garage RCR Civic and took it to Laguna Seca
@Pesselles bought a legend, I saw a legend on the way to my office :

First time I saw one IRL, they're not too common in Germany. Cool parts, cool livery. :lol:
Maybe I'll take my GT Raptor to Fisherman's Ranch tonight.
These are EVERYWHERE in Australia.
 
Did not play gt7 those day , as i took out my old G25 rig out and have a pc able to handle raceroom .
But this morning connect, happy to find there is the 4L , so bought it and the two other New car.
Then bought the corvette at haggerty to complete corvette menu .
Had a quick look at this week race , well maybe i will have a go at gt4.
Then did quickly the two Time Trial to get bronze ,and that made my daily ticket , a 4* that grant me a nsx 17 not bad .
5* star from menu grant me 100k.
 
Last night I bought the Mclaren F1 '94 from the Legendary Car Dealer and the car is worth every single credit. Now it's 2/3 Mclarens bought. Waiting for the GTR '97 and I'm done.

Also bought a Porsche Carrera '95 and a Viper GTS '13. All cars test driven and a livery made for the Viper based on the ACR model.

The despicable wheel gave me 10k for my time spent in the game.

I took the Suzuki VGT Gr3 and A220 to LeMans, the Valkyrie and the Nissan Group C to Sardegna and I used the Bugatti VGT GR1 to finish the 900 pp menu book. Got 3,4,5 ⭐🎟️ . Got 10k cr, 100k cr & carbon brakes
Many 3* tickets lately 😞 i get 3 of them each week .
Try few laps with the Veyron pig at new TT today .
Surprised that i gold it so soon ( lap times are slow enough now ) after few invalid laps and i could gain more but didn't want to flirt with the red lipstick 😂

The three ⭐ 🎫 s themselves don't bother me as much as they used but what bothers is the fake spin that's predetermined. If they would just give the prize (5k cr) it would not bother me as much. I don't need to get my hopes up needlessly. I watch the roulette like a simp hoping I will get whatever the best prize is only to have that crushed by the actual 🏆 🤣
 
Today took a stock Ford GT40 07 on racing tyres to Sardinia I briefly held the lead before my second stop but couldn't catch the lead pair before the end of lap 15, 3rd place.
Then took a RUF GTr to LeMans, impressive performance for a road car 190mph and pretty stable handling, rain was minimal on lap 3 so stayed out on the slicks. Two stops for fuel only.
Daily wheel gave me a 6* parts ticket. Won a weight reduction 5 for a Aston Martin 1-77, happy to knock nearly a 3rd of the weight out of this GT Car.
Too many sweet treats in the Legends now all at the same time.
 
Had some very good online fun yesterday:

  • Bashed out some of the new TT of the Bugatti at Lemans.
  • Collected my Gold reward of 2mill for the Ford Grand valley TT. Sweet.
  • Got a nice little Abarth from the UCD and tuned that up to 238bhp and 674kg of weight, little rocket.
  • Then proceded to tackle the online Daily Race B which is very fun. I am averaging at the mo, 3rd place on most races switiching between the Lambo Huracan Gr.3 and the RSR racecar Gr.3. Slowly ranking up and getting better overall.
  • I also did Daily Race C but did absolutely horrid, I hate brands hatch it a tugh track to master for me.
  • I also missed the 3rd race of Nation cup due to other commitments, so will have to make up points on the 4th race at Catalunya.

Overall I love the comptitives on trial mountain, just as long as you miss the rammers at monkey corner!
Photos will be up shortly.

On the GTP account, I found the stock Renault R4 a bit too slow to win, or even place, in the one-make race at Alsace. I eventually bought a full-custom computer, racing air cleaner, racing muffler, racing exhaust manifold and racing flywheel/clutch to get a 3.5-second win in 6:41.

Seeing @Famine speculate on just how lucrative that one-make race could be with a fully-tuned R4, I hopped onto the Plus account and tried that. 253,050 Cr. later (which included front/rear bumper and side trim deletes, but not nitrous), at 4:48.4 in my slow hands, it's not quite 1,000,000 Cr./hour once restarting the race is thrown in. It would be faster with suspension optimizations and nitrous, but I'll let others burn the rest of the challenge week on that.

I stayed on the Plus account to blitz the rest of the Weekly Challenges:
  • Suzuka European Clubman Cup in 5:36 with a stock Ferrari VGT (yes, it's legal; I used the Ferrari FXX K last week)
  • Catalunya Ferrari Circuit Challenge in 9:51 with a Ferrari Enzo on sport soft tires, but otherwise stock (with neither the F12berlinetta nor the F8 Tributo to be found)
  • St. Croix Schwarzwald League in 9:21 with a slightly-tuned 2022 Porsche 911 (weight reduction 1/2, increased rigidity, racing clutch/flywheel, carbon propshaft, SS tires, 699.22 PP, saw a Porsche 959 and a Porsche Cayman GT4)
  • Daytona Gr.1 in 16:30 in a minimum-downforce SF19 Toyota on RH tires
The 4-star workout Wheel of Despair puked out height-adjustable suspension, while the car ticket from the Weekly Challenges gave a second BMW VGT (hung onto for tuning purposes, currently at a low of 538,970 Cr. at the scrapper).

I went back to the GTP account to clean up the Weekly Challenges in a competitive fashion:
  • Suzuka European Clubman Cup in 6:59 with a stock 2020 Maserati MC20 after finding the Radical that was tuned for the wet Tokyo grind too slow and the BVLGARI too unstable (with the super-Alfa stuck in traffic)
  • Catalunya Ferrari Circuit Challenge in 10:22 with an engine-swapped, but otherwise stock, Ferrari F40 (with an F12berlinetta, but not the F8 Tributo, in the field)
  • St. Croix Schwarzwald League in 10:08 with a stock Porsche Carrera GT (with a Porsche 959 and 2022 Porsche 911 starting near the back)
  • Daytona Gr.1 in a not-quite-clean 16:29 with a stock Peugeot 908 HDi FAP (short-shifting at about 6200 rpm to make it 5 laps on fuel)
The 4-star workout Wheel of Despair gave the low-showing/lowest-possible 10,000 Cr.,, while the car ticket gave the Gr.1 version of the McLaren VGT (hung onto for tuning purposes, currently worth a rock-bottom 521,910 Cr.).

I love that Viper with the Bugatti engine swap. I had to make a swap livery for it. The VR cockpit view and the Stryker logo glowing red, when you start to redline, is one of the things I love about the car. With the Bugatti engine and the vehicle's look, it is all around Beast Mode.
 
I tackled the Weekly challenges today and a couple of other races. GT7 is my first real run at any Gran Turismo game and I have only been playing since the summer. All of it is in VR. I think I played maybe 10 hours of one of the Gran Turismo games back when I had a PS2 but that was it. I only learned to drive a Manual Transmission back in Oct. or Nov. and I have always played on Normal Difficulty. With the encouragement of others, I decided to attempt the 12 laps of Tokyo on Hard Difficulty for the first time today. I also went into today knowing I was going to do the weekly events in reverse of how I typically do. Normally I save the hardest for last. Today my order was to do Hard first, Easy last.

First I did the Weekly GR1 series event on Normal difficulty with the Bugatti VGT Gr1. I finished 2nd which was good enough for the weekly event, but I was annoyed and immediately attempted it again with the Porsche 919 Hybrid '16 and bested the bloody Valerio Gallo for the win.
Before moving on to the other 4 events I switched to Hard Difficulty and headed to Tokyo with the vehicle I felt most confident to not lose the CRB. Which was Praiano's tuning of the Lamborghini Miura. Some would argue this was the hardest race on my list and should have been the first of the day, but I have become quite comfortable with this track and vehicle combination. I had no trouble in getting the win but I was jamming out so hard to my Spotify playlist that I skipped the ending screen without verifying if I got the CRB. Doh! I think there is no way to go back and verify once you left that screen correct? Other than knowing exactly what your credits were before and doing the math.
Moved on to the Ferrari Circuit event in a newly tuned F12berlinetta for a fun and decisive win.
Next up was Schwarzwald League at Sainte-Croix and got the win with the Mercedes-AMG GT Black Series '20.
Decided to attempt the European Cup 600 with a 600pp tuned Audi TTS Coupé '09. Halfway through the 3 laps, I realized I never switched back to Normal Difficulty after my first successful attempt at Hard Difficulty 3 races back. I was unable to finish on the podium with the new Audi. It was at this moment I felt like a celebrity on the hit Youtube Series Hot Wings that got too cocky and was boasting about how I was breezing through the Gauntlet with no problem. I went right back in with the Enzo Ferrari leaving the AI no chance in hell this time. I wonder if this is what it feels like to go back for a 2nd bite of The Bomb: Beyond Insanity and walk away without burning my man parts or rubbing my eyes.

All that was left was the One-Make event and Praiano's Max-tuned R4 destroyed the competition. It was lonely out in front. I felt dumb that I had recently failed at trying to locate this track and the whole time it was just Alsace in reverse. I've driven the hour-long Human Comedy mission at least 7 times over the past 2 months so it was a real Doofus moment for me.
Speaking of insanity, to wrap up my session I made a weird choice on a whim with no logical explanation. I decided to take the Chapparal 2X VGT car and race it at the VGT Tokyo event that was recently spoonfed to us with the Genesis VGT launch. I down-tuned it to 850pp, which required Sports Hard tires, some ballast, and removing all the power it would allow. I made this random split-second decision that I wanted to end by day by winning a race against the new VGT additions with a car that I haven't driven in maybe 5 months. I believe it was in the first 5 cars I purchased in a garage that now consists of 636 total cars and only 3 left to purchase for a complete collection. That includes duplicates for all engine swaps. Wait I think I have one duplicate to buy as well so only 4 cars away from a complete collection. I did manage to finish ahead of the Genesis and Bvlgari at Tokyo but only a P2 finish behind the Porsche VGT Spyder. The annoying sound of the Chapparal reminded me why it has been ignored for so long.

@onedjyoulike - I don't know how far back the auto-record function goes on the PS4 version, but on the PS5, it records up to the last hour of gameplay. It won't help you now, but in the future, you can review that footage to see if you got the CRB.

On the GTP account, I forgot to mention I collected 1,000,000 Cr. for getting silver in the expired time trial and bought another Cappuccino to once again have a stock one to drive yesterday. Going back to the present, I rented a Bugatti and tried to hustle it around Sarthe. At 4:22.3, I missed out on gold by too much to chase, but it should be a very-safe silver time.

Of COURSE it netted a 3-star Wheel of Despair. Of COURSE it was the low-showing cash prize, but it was 10,000 Cr. instead of the lowest-possible 5,000 Cr.

I did a little practice at Interlagos in the Corvette Gr.3, setting a sloppy 1:34.5. It wasn't my best race against a field of half-C/half-D drivers, but I got 7th (with 3 dropouts) of 15. The extended write-up is on that thread.

On the Plus account, I rode around the back of Daily Race A with a mess of DR ratings (A-D) in a WRX, only taking 8th because of 2 drop-outs and an unserved penalty. At least it was a clean race.

I did some pseudo-practice at Brands Hatch in the Corvette Gr.4, not actually setting a time. I set off 14th, 1st of 2 to not take a time, in an all-D/mostly-S room...make that 13th as somebody dropped out before the start. I finished 10th on the track, but because somebody didn't pit and another driver for some reason didn't classify, it was 8th. As I had an off, it wasn't clean, but it still increased my DR slightly.

Likewise, I did some pseudo-practice at Trial Mountain in the Corvette Gr.3, starting 16th (the only driver to not take a time) in a mixed C/D room. I didn't have the speed for the room, which was also hyper-aggressive, finishing 12th of 14 finishers and somehow getting the CRB. The DR bar is back to empty D, which it probably will still be in the 18 races that it should take to get to get that trophy.

The 4-star Wheel of Despair gave the 2nd-low-showing/lowest-legal 30,000 Cr.
