    I notice that all the fast guys are using the Suzuki GSXR on both the 450pp and 500pp time trials. I am not one of the fast guys, but I found that the Isuzu 4200R was faster on the 500pp time trial.

    Perhaps someone who is in the top 500 could try this car as I am sure it will lap quicker than the GSXR.

  2. Aug. 13, 4:54pm

    I would love to have a few TT’s where i get a Car/RaceCar tuned or not, and a Track good or bad weather, that PD decides .

    Then we all are equal and it’s down to knowledge of making a correct setup and driving skills to get the best time on the board..

    Quite simple..

  3. Aug. 12, 7:51am

    boring. I thought this looked interesting at first but no, its the same old players using the same old car, and nothing but the GSX-R is competitive. i like those seansonals where MORE THAN ONE car is competitive

    • Aug. 12, 4:43pm

      the only way to get variety is to have 1 make tt’s , then at least we wont be seeing the same 12 cars all the time , we’ll be able to use every premium car in game , makes me laugh cos when anything relating dlc is mentioned they all jump on the band wagon about the lack of dlc cars , yet they only use a few cheap 1’s , or failing that have 4 or 5 mystery cars that pd build , you get 1 for the duration of the event that is non changeable ,

  4. Aug. 11, 2:36am

    Yet another boring seasonal event, use the same cars over and Over, the leader boards are filled with euro and Asian ppl, and they all use cars that arent even street cars like theGSX and the Nissan road car etc sooo boring I can’t wait Gil forza horizon comes out for free roam

    • Aug. 11, 11:12am
      Pit Crew

      “the leaderboards are filled with euro and Asian ppl.”

      Slightly racist totally biased. As a global fan base playing a game developed in Japan by a Japanese national, you would think we could rise above this kind of rhetoric…*Sigh*

      Its not like their skills don’t speak for them, but I guess its easier to create a negative then to flow with the positive.

    • Aug. 11, 1:07pm

      Well, guess it’s time to up the anti for the USA, I’m gonna go drive. Jk, I have about no chance of doing decent until I get a wheel

  5. Aug. 10, 8:39pm

    If I was making a seasonal event I would love to see something to stretch the legs of my GT race cars. I got all my nice TC’s from the DLC and my RM’s an such, would love an event to run them, any pp level really. But more realistically maybe a historic European car event, or a supercar one, that would be cool. I jut really want 550pp or higher, lol.

    • Aug. 11, 2:29am

      i always wanted to see a jgtc seasonal (i know there is 1) , but with 0 assists , like the real thing ,

    • Aug. 11, 1:12pm

      Then you can turn them off and run as much as you want, it is still quicker to run with them off if your on top of your game

    • Aug. 11, 3:46pm
      Pit Crew

      I can relate but we gotta have a day to night/ weather active seasonal, with a european theme, and or more real world MotorSports themed events with the few in game tracks that suppot them.

      Create a special prize ticket, themed for each type of event, for example:

      USA: All American ticket level 5 USA Cars.

      Some regions have more cars then others so some trimming must be done, but the premium cars of that region could be left out of prize tickets if that helps.

    • Aug. 11, 10:54pm

      I totally agree Pit Crew, the only problem is the only real tracks with time and weather are Le Mans and the ring. It’s still crazy Spa doesn’t have it, but even if it’s just wether it’s something.

      Endurance TT’s, 20-30 minutes long, GET ONBOARD EVERYBODY!

    • Aug. 12, 12:12am
      Pit Crew

      ^ Lets get this done PD weather related TTs and or longer ASpecs with revised AI.

      If we gotta play “Chase the Rabbit” then put random AI cars with best power to weight ratio towards the back of the line with user car not halfway round the course with no obstructions.

    • Aug. 12, 1:37pm
      Both Barrels

      I would love to see an historic european event. Greatly missing.

  6. Aug. 10, 11:02am

    Amac500, I’ve just had enough of Pit Crew, BWX & w115ter, because those 3 people are just too unreliable about a lot of things. Those 3 had better make up, or shut up. Their choice. Amac500, what do you think about those 3 unreliable people?

    *Pit Crew, BWX & w115ter are not allowed to reply on this comment

      Reply LOL

    • Aug. 10, 12:33pm

      Sonic, why are you stiring up trouble for no reason? Everyone is allowed an opinion, this is a forum not a lecture.
      Just chill dude. Its certainly not fair to call people names or “unreliable” for no reason lol.

    • Aug. 10, 12:36pm

      It IS fair, sanesh21.

    • Aug. 10, 1:42pm

      yes you’re right again SonicConqueror i must apologise profusely for you are the king of gt5 & everything you say is always true , my humble apologies o great 1 ,

    • Aug. 10, 8:32pm

      I like Pit Crew, he’s cool with me. w115ter, don’t really like that guy. BMX isn’t too bad, don’t love him a lot but I don’t hate him alot, lol, so he’s alright.

    • Aug. 10, 8:40pm

      But I’m not really one to call out a fight, lol.

  7. Aug. 10, 8:36am

    I wish I could figure out how to drift. I just don’t get it.

    • Aug. 10, 10:24am

      I’m with you there!

    • Aug. 10, 12:31pm
      Pit Crew

      Very helpful, but must be somewhat committed to learning drift techniques.

    • Aug. 10, 12:49pm

      This is how I drift.
      1: Get in Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution IV.
      2: Go to track.
      3: Floor it.
      4: Pull handbrake.

    • Aug. 11, 2:21am

      @jetmac , im having trouble too , been using the wheel (+ incar view) for a while on drift tt’s now , search for ‘drift bible’ featuring keitchi tsuchiya , it helped me with positioning , handbrake use & throttle control , it gives you about 4 or 5 different techniques that he uses to drift so you can find what best suits you’re style , i prefer the brake pedal to initiate the drift though as i think it swings the back end round more smoothly , hope this helps you

    • Aug. 11, 9:30am
      Pit Crew

      AWD cars are tricker to learn drift than RWD or MR cars. I would try a small Nissan or mazda rx7 as they turn on apex without to much play from the handbrake.

      If AWD is your choice though, dont add the lsd, use the default, and adjust TSC to 10-90. Stage 1 weight FC transmission with a very close final gear,bottom top speed set to 140, adjust to upper top speed to 127-140.

      FC suspension, slam front and rear to the minimum ride height, tighten springs to 7 up to ten, 3 2 3 2 dampers, 3 3 anti roll bars.

      Camber front try 3.0 rear try 1.0 . rear toe -.05 front .00 or-.02

      check out the drift tune link also as I have been doing this awhile but my tune may not help you, plus I only Drift my Tommy Kaira for AWD events but have multiple RWD drift cars.

      The Madrid Drift Trial im in the top 5,000 so im hardly the best but my score is 11,010, 9,000 or so off the top guy.

      Practice, Practice, when time constraints allw.

  8. Aug. 9, 11:59pm

    After playing the seasonal events it occured to me that my original hype about rear wheel drive (always sporty) caused me to overlook the pp level. I remembered that 450pp is NOTHING, 500 is better, but I REALLY want to see a 550pp event. And those endurance trials I already talked about, 20-30 minute races, let us run any racing tires for some tire pit strategy, sorry I keep saying it but that would be a riot if they give us decent pp!

  9. Aug. 9, 9:44pm

    Hey this is off topic but when are we getting that Acura NSX Concept that was in that GT5 video a while back? My bet guess is there aren’t DLC stuff right now because of Nissan GT Academy, don’t want to cross brand or something. Idk but the NSX is the only Japanese car model I like so I hope soon!

    • Aug. 9, 9:51pm

      That’s one most of would love to have sooner than later. My guess, is we won’t see it till GT6 if even then.

    • Aug. 9, 10:33pm

      It has already been said that the new Acura NSX won’t be seen till GT6.

    • Aug. 9, 11:54pm

      Well that’s disappointing, the video was on GT5 tracks, like the big test one. If we don’t see it in GT5 I bet ya GT6 is out on PS3 ;) I want that NSX Concept PD, I’ll pay $0.99 for it in DLC even, I know ya got it, DON’T HOLD OUT! lol

    • Aug. 11, 2:38am

      The concept was in the avengers movie but since it’s so new I doubt it would have came out for GT5 even if they kept makIng dlc

    • Aug. 11, 9:10am
      Pit Crew

      I did notice that since we got the free Scion DL car, there is space for 2 more possible manufactures tabs in the car dealership. Dont know if it means anything but I remain hopeful…

  11. Aug. 9, 6:12pm

    Lol its not, just goes to show what you know…..GET OUT!

  12. Aug. 9, 6:10pm

    I think that Alfa is 4WD.

    • Aug. 9, 7:30pm

      It’s not 4wd it is in fact rwd. With a V8 sourced from Ferrari.

    • Aug. 9, 8:09pm

      you freaking serious bro!? Do you even have the game?

    • Aug. 9, 8:26pm

      Frankie say RELAX. ^^^

    • Aug. 10, 4:27am

      Sourced from Maserati actually, but Maserati was owned by Ferrari at the time :P

    • Aug. 10, 11:43pm
      Pit Crew

      I tell ya what, that Alfa is a heck of a drift car. Its almost like cheating.

  13. Aug. 9, 3:35pm

    These seasonals were VERY hard, but quite enjoyable once you’d done them. But once again, a low pp and comfort soft time trial. I also hate trhe fact that skid recovery is always off. You can’t brake without it skidding during the braking or at the end of the zone. Difficult, but I’ve done them. I still would love some variation though. One week an event, the next time and drift, the next week an event, then time and drift. What about not having a schedule? One week an event, then something else, then a time and drift trial and mix it up. Also as much as I and everyone complained about B spec, some SHORTER not longer than A spec would be races would be welcomed (I’m nearly on lv 40 A spec and only 37 B spec so some good experience winning races would be appreciated, although as long as the races are same length or shorter than their A spec equivalent.) Despite this I’d also love some decent A spec races, as a while back there were 2 B spec races on Spa and Sarthe that won 4 and 6 million respectively. My B spec couldn’t win Sarthe, I’d love an A spec event the same or similar to this please.

    • Aug. 9, 5:29pm

      I highly agree that there is no Skid Recovery force allowed in these time trials. I use skid recovery force a lot because it helps shave extra seconds of your time.

    • Aug. 9, 5:38pm

      I’m Glad SRF is forced off. It has no place in GT5 IMO.

    • Aug. 9, 7:15pm

      You guys need to get with the program. Driver aids in a simulator are like training wheels on a bicycle, they’re not meant to be used all the time. You’re supposed to wean yourself off of them eventually. Once you get used to playing this sim you need to gradually turn the aids off. That’s how most of did it, and that’s how it’s meant to be played.

      Obviously if you’re on GTP you’re not a casual fan. Stop being lazy, and start playing GT5 realistically. SRF is a joke. It adds tire grip when you start to lose control, do you realize how messed up that is? And you’re using it as a crutch? This is a simulator, and SRF is the most unrealistic aid of them of all. I could understand using some active steering, but SRF goes against everything GT is all about. I wish they never included it.

      Playing a game how you like to is one thing but this is just laziness. GT5 is a much more meaningful and rewarding experience when you play it how it was intended. Get with the program. Stop being noobs

      Plus, how are you gonna complain about having touse comfort tires? It’s only 450pp lol that’s so easy. With any thing else it would be incredibly boring. Man…

    • Aug. 9, 7:53pm
      Pit Crew

      ^Skid Recovery is a total NoOb move, and is banned from my online lobbies for just that reason. We didnt need it for GT1-4, so why now.

    • Aug. 9, 8:40pm

      Please take your aids off. It a sim. Not a trainer. Get pad/wheel in your hand a feel the car. Feel the limits and see if you can push them. try a 4 wheel drive first and build up to a GT-1 don’t be noobs.

    • Aug. 9, 10:45pm

      TomBrady, Pit Crew & Ii_law-man, your comments are useless here. Skid Recovery Force is not a joke, not a noOb move, and most certanly not a poor aid. I always use skid recovery force all the time; it helps to go up against the most difficult AI opposition in many races. Skid recovery force is a fact of life. Now don’t you cry out loud about it, either.
      And for the last time, SRF is not a joke, not a noOb move, and not a poor aid. End of story. Bye, bye. See ya later.

    • Aug. 9, 11:34pm

      the TOSS never uses SRF……..

    • Aug. 10, 12:08am

      Awesome trolling, SonicConqueror.

    • Aug. 10, 12:44am
      Pit Crew

      LOL I…I just can’t believe he said, Skid Recovery Force is a fact of life…LOL

      For lack of a truly intelligent response, he said that. Now that, that right there was a total noob comment trying to defend a total NoOb move. If it wasnt so downright funny and pathetic at the same time I think I would feel some kind of sympathy, for he is obviously misguided.

      Now SonicConqueror, you go and find a factual link that says a motorsport series somewhere uses Skid Recovery Force.

      Ayrton Senna rolls in his grave.

    • Aug. 10, 7:31am

      Absolutely done my head in with the “Skid Recovery force is a fact of life” :/

    • Aug. 10, 10:57am

      I am NEVER misguided, Pit Crew. Now stop being so negative! That goes for you too, BWX. YOU two had better stop saying anything else negative about SRF; for the last time, SRF is a fact of life. Full stop.

    • Aug. 10, 12:38pm
      Pit Crew

      ^ Where is your proof SonicConqueror. Still just your opinion.

    • Aug. 10, 8:44pm

      Hey me personally, I run with SRF off anyways and when I make a room SRF is off, but if I wonder into a room and find out SRF is on I admit I’ll turn it on because the rules allow it an it’s often a 1-2 second advantage. But I do think it’s best two turned it off for the TT events.

    • Aug. 11, 2:40am

      thanks ! , i told you i would see you agree with me about assists , just didnt think it would be this soon after our little discussion, we have all been playing this series for a lot of years now , evolVE !

    • Aug. 12, 1:42pm
      Both Barrels

      TomBrady, you said a mouthful. Agree 100%. Those that rely on SRF probably also prefer courses where the corners are completely walled in hahah.

    • Aug. 12, 1:56pm
      Both Barrels

      Sonic, using SRF to “shave seconds off your time” is pointless, unless you simply want to see your name in lights, which I doubt will ever happen since you rely on SRF to drive your car through the corner for you…

    well , nice 1 boys/girls , way to ruin both tt’s , wtf ! at least use a different car for 1 of them , you’re even saying how pd’s seasonal tt’s are so boring & not creative enough for us , never going to make you lot happy , sheep !

    • Aug. 9, 1:39pm

      pd should choose the car to be used , also have tuning locked , then at least we will see a variation in the cars that are used

  16. Aug. 9, 7:14am

    I still wait for another B-Spec seasonal.
    I am beginning to think there won’t be one.

    • Aug. 9, 8:35am
      Pit Crew

      LOL after how much we complained about BSpec some months ago, we may never see it again. (Hopefully).

    • Aug. 9, 8:17pm

      No offense, but I don’t really care. I honestly think that the 458 Italia isn’t that beautiful (I find it quite ugly), and that B-Spec is slightly more exiting than A-Spec.

    • Aug. 9, 8:30pm

      I can see why you think that about A/B-Spec, but thinking the 458 is ugly? It might just be the way it looks in GT5’s dealership. The 599 doesn’t look as nice to me as it really is.

    • Aug. 9, 9:16pm

      No, I mean it. I can’t see the appeal of the 458. It isn’t as fast as the F60, and isn’t nearly as good looking as the Enzo.

  17. Aug. 9, 5:18am

      ^My Art Morrison also though it is a custom so… which begs the question, why are no seasonals ever themed to include the SEMA show cars. At least let me drift my Morrison ore often.

      Pit Crew


    • Aug. 9, 2:33pm

      That sucks. I ALWAYS use the Art Morrison for drifting. Even the default setup is good for drifting. I guess I’ll have to use some road car then.

      I don’t know how some people use the TVR Speed 12. I tried that and it was so difficult to use.

    • Aug. 9, 7:44pm

      @ TomBrady Plus it has never taken a bad photo yet.

      Good car, even in competition, but seems to really love the drift tune, or no tune just CH tires and a track with good corners.

    Would love a bigger Drift Challenge with leaderboards, maybe even Rain Drift at Suzuka or an Accumulative score Drift challenge (Best 2 out of three laps accumulated score counts toward Gold score if say best 2 total laps score is 40,000and you need 37,000 to achieve gold for example.

    Three tracks total maybe, street cars (variate challenge to challenge ) or Drift cars only and to be fair all drivetrains allowed though they will also change from event to event. Purpose built Drift cars as prize ticket.

    • Aug. 9, 1:01am

      Sounds like an endurance drift, lol. I’m garbage at drift so I don’t care if it’s expanded other then the fact theor would be more stuff. Although I did just figure out the trick to setting up the LSD for it and got my first gold on the 4WD drift, lol.

    • Aug. 9, 1:09am
      Pit Crew

      dont even use lsd on awd, shell handle like RWD with no power at all thru the front

    • Aug. 9, 12:49pm

      No see I used the LSD to turn the front acceleration and breaking sensitivity down to 5 an turn the rear acceleration and breaking up to 60 with both initial torques at 60. That way I was generating sone wheel spin with the all wheel drive car and making the back come around. For me anyway I couldn’t have done it anyway else, lol

    • Aug. 9, 1:38pm
      Pit Crew

      ^ Right but by not applying LSD, you wont have to worry bout any power on fronts, therefore the rear will come around on its axis cleaner. power on the front is probably better for off-road drift trials using AWD but street you want a RearWheel drive character more than AWD.

      Also gearing is key when using up or down shifts plus acceleration to create Torque Steer, counterlock, and slide. A good Drift tune will allow you to use essentially no handbrake to create your inertia forming a drift. From there you let the body of car settle into corner entry axis and power through it on the cleanest angle, front neutral, back torque controlled around corner or curb even downhill undulations.

      Autumn Ring Full Course Suzuka East and Tsukuba are great courses to drift, if you ever consider improving your technique.

    • Aug. 10, 12:08am

      Yeah I agree about front on off road, but if LSD is not applied it’s still at default, it just let’s you change it. For AWD on a paved course it work with that Audi SUV (for get model name). But I do think you get high scores with it default and I did think about gear ratios, however I’m probably the only experienced GT player left (player since it came out) who doesn’t have a wheel controller, so for control setup I choose between shifting and throttle/brake for L2-R2 and I did throttle and break so I was set for my normal circuit racing. My b-day is next month though, if I don’t get a wheel I’m buying it with the money, lol. I remembered those gears though because I made a wheelie car a while back and set up the controller and gears for that because keeping it in one gear let’s me peel it for longer.

  22. Aug. 9, 12:09am

    Remember, NO COMPLAINING about these new time & drift trials. They’re awesome.

    • Aug. 9, 12:18am

      Too bad they can’t give us new A-Spec races AND drift/Time trials. WTF, like it’s so hard to put together an A-Spec seasonal they have to wait 14 days for the next one?

    • Aug. 9, 12:40am

      Tomorrow, there will be another GT Academy seasonal events update; round 5 car is the Nissan Skyline GT-R V-Spec II Nur (GT Academy) ’02.

    • Aug. 9, 12:44am

      Well they are doing stuff BWX, you can’t expect them to keep pushing stuff out until people complain it’s to repetative or something. That’s the cycle. One Wednsday night or Thursday, whenever you play it, you get a new A-spec event one week, and the next a time and drift trial. What’s wrong with that? Can’t seriously complain about, that’s not the big capital WTF kind of thing. It’s like complaining about the selection of stamps to buy at the post office when you still have to go pay a million dollars to fill up your gas tank. Please, lol

    • Aug. 9, 1:00am
      Pit Crew

      The Aspec seasonal would be fun if PD could tweek that A.I. to drive the way it does in the License Demos from GT4. The AI really pushed the car to its limit in the Nurb trial with the DTM Benzo (Flashback)

    • Aug. 9, 4:15am

      ”It’s like complaining about the selection of stamps to buy at the post office when you still have to go pay a million dollars to fill up your gas tank. Please, lol”_——-

      NO it isn’t, that’s a completely stupid analogy. It would be simple for them to put out more A-Spec races, and much better ones that aren’t all the same thing with just different cars and different tracks but everything else is the same. They could do much better, especially sisnce GT Life A-Spec sucks so bad.

      “They could do much better, especially sisnce GT Life A-Spec sucks so bad.”

      Rubbish! That’s just a load of rubbish, BWX. The normal GT5 A-Spec Events DON’T suck; they are awesome to do, because your % game completion will go up, bit by bit. That’s what I like about the normal A-Spec events. Especially the online A-Spec seasonal events.
      (It gives people the opportunity to do enough distance in a certain car, before it reaches it’s peak power output.)
      This goes for B-Spec races as well, which is why all my crew drivers are at lv.40; it makes my crew very tough to be reckoned with. And as I said in the earlier comment:
      “Remember, NO COMPLAINING about these new time & drift trials. They’re awesome.”
      Even if we don’t get 1st place on the leaderboards by the end of those trials, we still get a maximum of 1,000,000 Cr., plus a helmet & 2 racing suits chosen at random.

      Must admit I grow bored of these events. They bring little imagination to the table. Often find ourselves racing against the same cars. Boring in my opinion.

      Think its about time they offered something different…. In fact its well overdue. New cars/tracks and better events. Marque race events from the previous gt games would be a good start.

      Rant over.

      Who made you king of the opinions exactly? Comments like that just scream fanboy.

    • Aug. 9, 8:17am

      Fanboy?? How have you come to that conclusion? And where is this self proclamation of being the king of opinions?

      The PDB is a great feature but the rolling checkpoint theory for online ASpec is getting old. European themed seasonals are lacking, and therefore must get better consideration from PD.

      Great TT though used the Stock Evora for Cape Ring, now gonna try the Lotus Europa jusr for chuckles.

    • Aug. 9, 8:46am

      Please forgive me Simon.

      I agree with you. It isn’t the first time sonic has told people not to complain.

      Lol I don’t think he’d be to happy if someone said don’t praise the game.

      I think we should all be left to make our own opinions of the game with people like sonic talking utter rubbish

      ^ For some odd reason he doesn’t think GT5ers deserve to have an opinion other than his CroDan. Hes a news thread bully, wont venture to the main forum with his do as I say, follow as I lead mantra though, Ban hammer for sure as his Skin is quite Thin.

      @SonicConqueror ”Rubbish! That’s just a load of rubbish, BWX. The normal GT5 A-Spec Events DON’T suck; they are awesome to do,…….”
      Yeah, what’s THERE is OK- But it’s WAY too short! Some of the so called ”championships” are one race! If not, some are three races. It’s ridiculous how fast you get through A-Spec in GT Life. Even KAZ admitted he is not happy with GT5 A-Spec. His solution? These seasonal races. Ok, great, I’m glad he’s at least doing something, but it’s LAME now and he needs to have a little imagination and make them more fun and interesting.

      ”Remember, NO COMPLAINING about these new time & drift trials. They’re awesome.”
      No, you can’t tell me or anyone else how to think or what to say about GT5. That’s exactly why I responded to your post in the first place. I’m obviously a GT5 fan, but that doesn’t mean I’m blind or have no opinion.

    • Aug. 9, 10:50pm

      BWX, I CAN tell you & everyone else what to do, because i’m the jury. Anyone who replies negatively about GT once more will be punished for their inconsideration. Hmph!

    • Aug. 10, 12:12am

      No but BMX, of all the things in the game to complain about that first comment was a prett bad one, haha. Yeah we all get tired of that pp and cars they choose, but thats a problem with the events they pick, not frequincey they release them. The release schedule of seasonals is no problem at all when considering things in the game like the digital shadows, lack of time change on more then 2 tracks, and GT-R’s.

    • Aug. 10, 1:31am

      Oh please sonic. Give it a rest. I really can’t fanboys who are also trolls lol.

      I’m dissapointed in myself and others for giving you so much attention.

      Your views and judgements on this game are invalid…. Worthless.

    • Aug. 10, 11:13am

      CroDan, don’t you ever question my work on GT5 ever again! MY comments ARE valid, & you better understand THAT. Read my original comment. Then read it again, & again, until you finally understand my opinion. That goes for everyone else in this blog!
      And can ALL of you do me a favour? Can you just leave all of you’re negative comments for a different blog?
      WILL YOU, EVERYONE?! Jesus…

    I still hope they add endurance trials to the time and drift trial line up :)

    • Aug. 9, 12:08am

      It’s highly unlikely that they’ll do that sort of thing, Amac500. Endurance trials are just too long to do.

    • Aug. 9, 12:22am

      I’d be happy with 30 to 50 lap races with tire wear/ fuel consumption / weather, Ai difficulty slider, etc.. It’s always the same boring thing though. PD have zero imagination- they’re like robots (but make lots of human-like mistakes)

    • Aug. 9, 12:55am

      Well by endurance I figure like even just 10 laps or so, 20-30 minutes tops, no more. Just enough to need a tire pit stop or something. Not something as long as one of the endurance race events, just some 20-30 long time trial style deal.

    • Aug. 9, 1:05am

      Add a day to night course AKA Lemans and im there.

      IMO if GT5 gets one more update i wish it could add more day to night/ weather effects to more tracks.*Sigh*

    • Aug. 9, 6:56am

      An endurance race with the performance difference bonus would be great…think of using a 625pp car in a 700pp race…..

    • Aug. 9, 10:22am

      Lol meant to say “without” not “with”

    • Aug. 9, 12:55pm

      I know right Pit Crew, how did Spa not end up with time change??? And they shouldadd it to 2 or 3 tracks with out me buying it in a DLC, like Spa, Suzuka or Monza, and I would say Daytona’s road course but they screwed it up pretty bad with the lack of run offs and that we run the motor cycle bus stop. Maybe the Indy road course though, I was watching the Grand-Am race at Indy a few weeks ago and it started wet, dried up, then got wet and dried again (3 hour race) and it looked like a riot! I didn’t even think the circuit was that fun before that, lol

    • Aug. 10, 12:25am

      Maybe not enduro trials, but DEFINITELY trial championships! That’d be nice to see; a total score over the course of 3-5 races. It’s never been done yet, either. Good thinking.

  24. Aug. 9, 12:03am

    Good event, I can dig it :)

  25. Aug. 8, 11:58pm

    Bleh, I need something MOAR PD.

    • Aug. 9, 12:40am

      It never updates for drift/TT seasonals. Only for ‘proper’ events, the permanent ones.

  28. Aug. 8, 11:52pm

    Yep yep hurray another drift trail!

  29. Aug. 8, 11:52pm

    RWD cars? no wayyyyyy

    • Aug. 9, 12:56am

      I know right, finally something sporty to have fun with, because the last time I remember us all having fun in a time trial was the k-car event….. Now if only it could be more then 450pp
