    Seasonal events pretty fun, especially the Expert Series. Stuck on the 1st one though (fiat 500) - can only achieve 2nd place cant get close enough to 1st...always finish around 10 seconds behind. Any tips on getting better whilst staying in the limits of the race

    i've only just realised that your cars horsepower increases as the mileage (up to a certain point, then it starts going down again) does, just gained 20hp on my dodge viper just by driving it for 15 mins

    @choppy: Maximum engine upgrades and then use the power limiter, puts the 500 at the maximum allowed horsepower all the way from 1200 rpm onwards

    1. your correct - i noticed my fiat 500 going up by 1hp during the race. Cos when i tried racing again it kept saying "REGULATION_DISQUALIFIED" even though I hadnt changed a thing!

    2. maximum power got me within 2seconds of the leader. lowering the car and messing around with spring rate / camber angles finally got me past him!!! won the race after like 10 attempts lol . I'm very pleased with the challenge level on this game

    Time for a bump, GT5 2.0 is out, I haven't been able to find my disc for a few months sadly and finally found it, 380mb worth of updates!

    Here's the changes (and there is a lot)

    When Gran Turismo 5 launched almost a year ago now, Kazunori Yamauchi, the game’s creator, promised fans clutching their copies of the Real Driving Simulator, that the launch of the eagerly awaited title was not the end of the journey for the game but the start.
    True to that statement, since GT5 launched Yamauchi-san and the Polyphony team have been closely monitoring the feedback of the dedicated and discerning GT5 community. As a result of this, we have seen significant support for GT5 in the form of regular functionality updates.
    Today, I am very pleased to announce details of Functionality Update 2.0 which is the most sizable since the game launched. The update will be available for download on the 11th October. Of course the real bonus of all of this new content is the fact that it’s all absolutely free!

    Here’s the rundown on what you can expect to see in the update.
    Firstly all ‘standard’ cars will now feature an interior view, the level of detail will vary from car to car, but now for the first time you will be able to literally get behind the wheel of all the cars in the game.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Next is the great news that players can now save their progress during endurance races and return to the fray at a time of their own choosing.
    For fans of the stateside motoring championship NASCAR, there is a package of 11 NASCAR 2011 cars. There has also been improvement to the weather settings in the game and now players can incrementally adjust weather settings for race start and race end.

    [​IMG]

    Additional features of this update are:
    Photo Travel Mode updates
    Shortening of load times and improved menu response
    Improved car physics simulation, further evolved A.I.
    Improved and enhanced user interface
    Support for the Logitech G25/G27 steering wheels
    New features in the Online Lounge
    This is what series creator Kazunori Yamauchi had to say about the new content.

    As if this massive update was not enough, I can also advise you of more great news – very shortly we will be sharing with you details of a forthcoming package of exciting DLC for GT5 that will include new vehicles and tracks plus a host of other additional new content. The news will be incoming to PlayStation Blog and gran-turismo.com very soon so keep your ear to the ground.

    Looks like a bunch of great stuff, the last in cockpit car is pretty lame, all black with Speedo and Tach, but it's better than nothing. Just hopefully not a ton of those, or hopefully they add dashes to them over time.
     
    Grings and cadaveca say thanks.

    Yeah it might be from the new cars. Theyve added about 10 nascar vehicles or so.

    I updated the first post earlier with the Spec 2.0 information.

    It is fictional, but I believe its a proven feat. So it could do that kind of cornering and speed. But the G forces are too high for a human to take.

    Also the X2010 is free to all users for a short time due to Vettel's GP win. There should be a gift in the community tab in the game.

    They aren't too high for a human to take, they are at the limit of it though.

    Well playing more and I'm not sure if this a bug or what. But lately randomly during races my cars won't shift, usually when in 3rd gear, and if I drop down to 2nd sometimes they will, but sometimes they will jsut slowly accelerate in 2nd and shift into 3rd and do the same as everyone passes me. Yet it still shows me at wide open throttle, but it's like I lose half my horsepower. If that happens I have to come to almost a dead stop so it shifts into first gear, then it gets fixed.

    lol, no my supercharged Corvette and numerous other cars aren't having turbo lag, also isn't a small engine. Plus once near redline, there would be no lag at all. Not to mention brake boosting > lag, you get lag when you drive improperly, spool the turbo then go and you won't have an issue. Also that has nothing to do with lag in the video, like he said he's in the wrong gear, you don't race around at 30mph in 5th or 6th gear. To make a small engine fast you need boost, there is no other way around it, so they will be useless when that turbo isn't spinning at full speed (that means when acceleration in top gear at 30mph).

    Either way, it just seems to be an annoying bug or something. Going to lose my first race because of it, will have to restart the race :(

    Not an LS motor, 69 Corvette. And no, they don't, LS swap is insanely popular, and has massive top end (despite everyone saying pushrod can't do that). Not to mention, pushrod motors are as powerful as it gets, you don't see no DOHC crap in Top Fuel do you? Took Ford 14 years to finally make an NA motor than can stand up to an LS, all the other DOHCs just didn't. Everyone talked about efficiency for the displacement, when they didn't realize the LS1 was lighter, so more power in a lighter engine, who cares about displacement if it's heavier? lolol

    Yes, large pushrod american motors from all companies are capable of producing monstrous amounts of power, there is no replacement for displacement. Even GM realizes OHC is the future of their engines(2013 Vette) . The 5.4L from Ford is capable of 1200HP, just think how much you could get out of the 6.2L, and also allows for features like VVT. Chevy want to perfect the pushrod and Ford wants to perfect live axle

    Adding DOHC to the 6.2L adds weight, DOHC heads are massive, thats why you don't see massive displacement DOHC setups. You go with lower displacement and DOHC vs higher displacement and Pushrod, and both end up weighing the same and putting out around the same horsepower. 2 different methods to the same means, so I don't see the point. Also GM's already running VVT on a pushrod motor, you don't need DOHC for that. I haven't looked much into the 2013 Vette, but if they are going DOHC, just like I said in the first part of this post, I bet displacement will drop.

    I'm sure you've heard, the DLC has been delayed for North America till the 25th. If you purchase the complete pack however by Nov 7, they'll throw in a Honda NSX stealth and a GT5 dynamic theme.

    GT academy just finished. As a celebration you can download the Nissan GTR Stealth model untill January 30 2012. Just goto PSN store, redeem codes and enter this:

    I had been checking for that DLC, nice bonus for it to add to my garage. And another free car (the GTR) is always nice as well.
