    When you try to drift your Go-Ped through corners.

    When you attempt to draft a person while running track at school.

    When you fail a class at school because you were playing gt4 instead of studing.

    When you argue with people about cars, and your source of information is GT4.

    i fall under al three of those.

    also, you wake up in the middle of the night to finish a race. then stay up to complete more...when you have a test in 2 hours.

    you practice shift points in classes

    write down every detail about a lap...that you can remember

    ...you see weird/out-of-market cars on street and argue with yourself.

    "How good would this perform in Nurburgring?"

    ...When shoveling the snow off your sidewalk after a blizzard, you make corners and curves to make the illusion that you are actually walking in a race track:D

    You own Models of JGTC cars...and you live in Nebraska.

    You confuse people by referring to a car by it's chassis code. (FC3S, AE86)

    You learned about TVR, Pagani, and Marcos through GT.

    When tight corners in real life automatically make you come to conclusion that a handbrake turn might be necessary. Ok I might have gotten that from watching WRC but this is a group of car people, it might apply . . .

    You know you're playing GT4 too much when you put down the controller, look around you, and suddenly realize the entire house is dark and your family has gone to sleep.

    you're playing GT4 too much when:

    - you realize that your girlfriend/wife is standing over you, giving you the silent treatment
    - when your grades drop sharply
    - when you talk to your friends about spring rate, shock absorbers and final drive ratio.
    - when you go to your councellor to get an advice on how to beat the Nurburgring 24h Endurance.

    I'm guilty of some of the cars in GT4, but not the manufacturers. Same thing basically, though. :lol:

    When you: Drift around corners on your bike.

    Ask the used car dealership when the 'Black Beauties' are in.

    Buy shoes based on thier spring rate and ride height.

    Drift your lawnmower.

    I tried that, but my lawnmower just ends up spinning the inside tire, or flipping over. (the only way I could get it to slide was go down a hill, then turn sharply, but sometimes the tires would catch.)

    Not really, go really fast, turn, hit the brakes, then release. It gets the slide going, but usually doesnt have enough grip to push the mower anywhere.

    Around 7.40am for me. On the bicycle.

    And completely heedless of traffic around me. One of these days I'm going to be run over by a car. :scared:

    Replace the oil in your girlfriends car two weeks after she got it, (an 86 Hyundai Pony :scared: ) just to see if it'll bump up the horses enough to get it into a drift.

    P.S. It did!

    ..you listen in your earphones the GT Auto music when your car is being washed.
