    Driving Missions in GT4.

    Hey, no laughing. When I still had my PS2 I was completely unable to finish those '1 Lap Magic' events :C I'd probably be able to do them now that I know a bit more how the cars behave though :lol:

    Honestly that one license test in GT5 where you have to stop in the rain without ABS was the only event I've done so far that was too hard for me to gold. I even tried ramming the wall at the end to try and slow down faster but I was still stuck at silver.

    I'll try my hand at mission 34 in GT4 later and see if that gives me more problems.

    Oh crap, I remember this one :). It was a real challenge ... but I think it was in GT3, if I'm not mistaken. Those uphill jumps were the problem for me...

    As far as I can say, the Vettel races in GT5 are without the doubt the hardest ones. That new - Lotus in Senna Challenge was nowhere nearly that hard for me.

    Also I find this funny:

    I reply with my short clip (drivin through first corner with no movement of wheel):
    It was a fun car to drive, you just had to manhandle it. I loved it!

    Anyone remembering the M3 time trial in GT5P?

    IIRC it was impossible to gold that event without the amateur physics setting.

    The most difficult events in GT's history are without a shadow of a doubt the GT Academy time trials. No, it's not that difficult to get gold on them, far from it, but it is almost impossibly difficult to get the number 1 spot in your country (even harder to get P1 in the world). Getting in the top 10 is insanely hard, while even getting in the top 100 is out of reach for most.

    Same goes for the time trials in GT5 Prologue, getting on the leader boards was very hard.

    I got 100% in 3,4 and 6 but couldn't even come close in GT5 thanks to that ridiculous Red bull...thankfully the Red bull challenges in GT6 were doable. Having said that, is there any way to add a poll to this thread...it'd be cool to see what the masses think?

    I still can't gold it to this day. The only license holding me back from getting the IC prize car.

    Do you guys remember the one you were just making circles around a wall? Was it in GT1 or GT2? Also I remember when I was little I struggled with the ones you were going left and right to avoid the cones or something, I think it was GT2.

    Mission 34 was horrible. I struggle on the Nurb at the best of times, but I always came across an AI at the wrong moment. Queue big crash or losing loads of time slamming on the brakes and a 2 minute wait to start again!

    I struggled to get Bronze on some of the Vettel challenges in GT5, although I eventually got a gold and two silvers.

    One that I really, really struggled with, was the driving mission in GT4 with the Peugeot 206 Rally Car at Opera. It took at least 6 months to do, then a further 2 months after I had to play the game again because my save corrupted!

    A Poll would be nice!:D
    If you take all the suggestions in this thread, there are'nt more than about 8 different alternatives. Most people seems to agree that its either Mission 34 or Redbull X challenges tho...

    Some of the Goodwood events were annoying. Can't remember which car maybe the Mercedes just missing the first corner over and over.

    There's also one of the Licenses in GT 2 or 3. I remember driving a rear wheel driven sports car with a lot of horsepower on a wet track with my stick, don't remember the exactly event.
    I spend hours and hours every night trying to gold it, but after a while I decided to skip it

    I don't remember this mission 34 at all for some reason. I know it was a catch up style event we've now become accustomed to but why was it so tough? Handling of the car? Understeer physics in general? Just had to be so damn fast?

    Has to be the S. Vettel X events of GT5. Ridiculously fast car and driving it with stock settings was a pain to drive.

    A 2 minute wait at the start, a car that didn't like the tyres it was using and was also fast and slightly heavy.

    Add into the mix that this all took place at the Green Hell then you have one very frustrating cocktail of, wait 2 minutes, start, balls up and restart. Rinse and repeat.

    I've quoted a couple of very useful posts from there, but the track map hasn't copied so you may want to check this thread out for tips on driving the Lotus :tup:.

    The Honda Mission Race on GT4. Oh it's annoying.

    The problem with the rally challeges are really the less than realistic physics where unlike reality, you really need to keep sliding to an absolute minimum. That's what I remember anyway.

    I never keep my sliding to a minimum while rally racing. I always get better times sliding around. Only place i don't slide around is on a straight, if im turning im probably slidding

    As many have mentioned the driving mission 34, is what that stands out for me. Probably because I spent countless of hours on trying to gold it. Never did :nervous: A 1,5 second behind was the closest.

    I don't remember so much from GT1 - GT3, but was missig gold on two lisences from GT3. Don't remember which ones.

    In GT5 I didn't do any of the Redbulls. Tried the first one and thought: no way...

    No, only real prerequisite was to know entire layout of Nordschelife perfectly and utilise the car in appropriate way. People were mainly in trouble because they didn't actually know Nurburgring.

    If many would try it today once they know the track, it would be much, much easier.

    Disagree, the car was equipped with bald tires and loose lugnuts. It was virtually impossible, but alas I'll pull out my PS2 and give it another try. It's been a while since my last frustration episode...
