I worked on the first race the most... It a REALLY small/tight track and a REALLY loose car.. I don't care for the comfort tires.. I'm much better in a race car on a longer track. The third race(cape ring) is a really fun board an a decent car!!

I took the racing pedals apart to stiffen the throttle spring and MAJORLY stiffen the brake springs.

I'm about to retire the Driving Force GT for the G27 so that I can finish my racing simulator/cockpit with reverse mounted pedals(like in a real car). I've still got to swing by the junkyard to pull the dash from a volkswagen.

I have a BIG problem with the AI on GT5.... unprofessional driving.
And the nascar events were the worst.. You also have to time your passes/drafts carefully to be in the right spot on the last lap..

Is that online ranking or the game ranking. I was playing some guys last night and wow they are some dirty playing racers.

What happens when you have completed all the GT races?

Seasonal Events:

GT Academy Round 1

3 races: Tsukuba, rome, cape ring

My 25th place is the overall ranking(in the south east) after setting my best times on the 3 tracks.. Ranking is determined by your combined time.

Sounds like you are talking about the online lobby racing..

little tip...

If you are using a driving force wheel, click the button in the red ring(right side of wheel) at the start of the race, and then scroll down with the +/- button and TURN ACTIVE STABILITY(ASM) OFF!!!
..this can ONLY be done with a Logitech..

Yeah I am looking at getting the Driving Force wheel so will give that a shot. The new Thrustmaster wheel looks sweet but $600 is a bit much...... Maybe.....

the Formula GT car is available everyday in the Online Dealership (icon below seasonal events).

It costs about 4.8 Million.

Yea I saw where some of those races are long. Who the heck has time to do those and what happens when you play all the a-spec races ?

new events open when you reach drivel level 30 & 40...

Most of it is endurance stuff though...

I was all but done with the game in the first two weeks..

And I still havn't EVER had enough cash to buy a 15 or 20 million dollar car...

I still run GT4 all the time... GT5 is such a letdown...

But.. It's fun to host races in the online lobby, and GT Academy has me hooked.. so at least it won't gather dust on the shelf..

I have raced a few other players online but the cars suck ! Can you not run your own cars? These cars never have any traction and some of these idiots just set there waiting for you so they can ram you

Reading on the GT5 forums there are groups you can get in with that are all about good clean racing... Unfortunately at the moment I am just as likely to ram somebody due to lack of skill as opposed to just being a dick...
