You don't notice AI in the same car as you pulling away from you out of corners despite them crawling around it? Or cars out of your vision pulling away at a crazy rate, only for then to slow down and let you catch them later?
Why do you think so many of those chili races are hard? It's not because they're suddenly super skilled and lapping as well as you, it's because they're getting a boost to cheat.
Boost has been in the series since the PS1 games, but I think it was 5 where it was first a selectable option.
Yeah if you pay attention it's easy to notice AI doing impossible things relative to their supposed power or tire compound, especially when they're out of view of the player (I think they ignore weather completely when not being rendered on-screen, for example).
To be fair, I think every GT has had rubberbanding. I've complained about it since the first one, though, and I'll continue to do so.
