      IKR that pic is pretty bad, the wheels aren’t even spinning. The shutter speed was set too fast. Oh we’ll they probably didn’t have many good pics of trucks to choose from.

    I dig the dirt race, I’m just sad that I’ve never gotten the Silverado. I’m not even sure how I’ve missed it all this time. Time to figure out a setup for the Taco for dirt!

    That Silverado SST gives me some cool custom livery ideas. Maybe we can gave one for GT6. On topic though, that SST makes me want to go out to get a router and take my PS3 and GT5 online. This would be one cool seasonal event to start out playing online with.

    Not happy why each seasonal is repeated 9 or 12 months after its first appearance.. The first time this 4×4 showed up we had the nurbring to play with….. No nurb this time round boohoo :-(

      Because tarmac racing has gone BORING? Don’t like it, just don’t do it? There, I’m just glad PD is at least trying to be new…

      I was expecting some sort of news or during the Bathurst 1000 about any Aussie cars will be included on GT6 (or an updated Bathurst trailer with Aussie cars on it) but I guess not.

      there’s also some sporty ones I can think of. Ranger had Edge and Splash packages. there’s a 93 type lightning, there’s the Harley Edition and F raptor. there’s even some obscure International civillian vehicles. Can you throw in El Camino/Ranchero/Caballero, a suby Brat or two…etc, etc…

    This one looks like fun. Haven’t played GT5 since the E3.

    Now the question is… SSR, F150 or Ram…? Oh, I know! It’s Midget time!!

    1. SkierPS3

      I was going to say that, it’s terrible. Besides how bad that standard looks, it’s like they put no effort into framing the shot.
