    Don't know if anyone's recognized this yet, but in the legal credits and under Shelby, it lists GT350, GT500, Cobra Daytona Coupe, Cobra 427 SC (the only one in the game), and the Series One. Secret cars :scared:? If someone hasn't already done so, maybe Xenn-or anyone else with the ability to nose around in the game files-can take a peek and see if there really are any hidden Shelbys. Of course, I could be completely wrong. In the event of, please disregard everything I just said :tup:.

    I really didn't know that these were written. I will have a look.
    EDIT: The only Shelby car file I found was sh0001, which means the only Shelby is the Cobra 427 SC. Unless there's a Shelby hidden in GT3 Demo.

    Maybe their just licences from GT2, but were accidentally written in gt3.

    Well, the base model for Escudo, which is first generation of Vitara/Escudo is/was for sale.

    Also you can buy rally cars in real life, at least cars like BMW 3 or old supertouring cars series prepped for rally racing.

    no, no, i mean (probably for legal reasons) they were saying the escudo pikes peak is not available in real life. no other brand appeared to show this however. i just wondered why only one brand said this and also found it a bit weird. (of course you can't buy a pikes peak car!)

    I was walking around in a car museum in Vegas one time and saw both a road and rally version of a Ford RS200. They were both for sale! The road version was $100,000 and the rally version was about $185,000.

    I also saw a Jaguar XJ220 that was also for sale for $375,000 :drool:

    Googled "Weaver" and first link is a company that makes optics and scopes for rifles or sells shotguns :D
    I dont think thats the right Weaver.

    I am curious what is it. (didnt know "progress" - thats new to me)

    What if all the sponsers are fake, PD used them at the time as they didn't have much money. I might be wrong.

    ssr5 looks like that autumn ring track from gt1 where there was heaps of shine. in ssr11 at least the zonda's brake light lights in the wrong spot. i think the ctr's wheels went through the body last turn of tokyo.

    ^An early i.Link Battle menu, perhaps? And how you enter that menu? :)

    That seems to be the full version of some logo of GT2000 you found a while ago. Can you enter it? :)

    Yes, that's an i.Link menu from the GT3 OPS2M demo.

    I assume it does work as I can choose the options available, but it stops afterwards, most likely missing i.Link connection.

    I accessed it by messing around with the menu values, I came across it after a few minutes of looking around.

    That would appear for each console hooked up to i.Link. For example:

    Machine No. 1: PS2 Console 1
    Machine No. 2: PS2 Console 2

    and so on.
