  1. Try the 993 on Race A for some more sideways fun. When you get in another RWD car afterwards you feel like superman. A bit like when you go in a cold plunge pool, then get back in the main swimming pool afterwards and it feels like a hot bath. Except the Gr3 GT-R, I cannot drive that thing. I love the 'vette, the R8 and other sideways ones, but the GT-R makes no sense it just goes sideways randomly.
  2. Oh for me I mean when you're in first pulling away (i.e. in 1st). Once you're up to speed it's not usually an issue, but it's the worst time to deal with it if you've just been punted/made a mistake and are trying to rejoin, only to perform multiple pirouettes in a panic
  3. Yeah I think all the Gr2 engines do this to varying extents. It feels like sort of traction control, or it mimicking a highly tuned engine that can only breathe properly at high revs, being driven by someone who can't slip the clutch. It's really annoying because you floor it and nothing, nothing nothing, nothing, facing backwards.
  4. There are some exceptions. The Gr3 Corvette peaks well below the redline, so you're actually best off shifting up when the bar is level with the RHS of he gear indicator (when it's flashing is too late). Also short-shifting (shifting a bit earlier) is a good way to save fuel in this game. Useful in this week's Race C I made several places in the pits thanks to using the Corvette and short-shifting when I didn't need max power.
  5. Can you use it in Gran Turismo Sport to stop the stupid gear change sound when you use a road car? It's like the computer is really uncoordinated and presses the accelerator before lifting the clutch. Silly thing but it sort of ruins the immersion for me, when you watch the replay and it's like EEErnnnnnnn EEErnnnnnnn
  6. Of course the best comedy chicane is at Tokyo:
  7. Does the death chicane have track limits? Maybe it's just that you die if you hit the wall.
  8. The T300 is belt drive so smoother than T150/G29. Same 2 pedal box as T150 though. The hierarchy of FF is like vinyl turntables. direct drive > belt drive > gear drive Technics = Fanatec i think
  9. I’ve got a stand that says “Next Level Racing” on it. Works well with my garden chair
  10. IMO G29 if you want a clutch pedal. T-150 otherwise

    Eh? Oh the British GT one on the 16th?
  13. I think because whilst sim setups give you just about enough feedback to manage throttle by yourself, there's not enough for brake. It's one of the things I remember most from the few times I've been karting, you really know when you're locking the wheels up on the brake much more instinctively, thanks to the feel of the steering and pedal.

    Anyone going to Donnington on Sunday? I’ve got tickets, figured it’s all outside and no need to touch anything common, even toilet stall doors are usually propped open.
  15. I’m not really any slower on Gran Turismo after a couple of drinks, but I’ve noticed it really opens everything up and I start noticing all of the scenery in the background. The weirdest one is Sardegna Circuit which is full of huge windmills but I’d never noticed until I played drunk.
  16. ii means backwards yeah, I’ve matched the top time (I think alternating between @Junker and @Jashin) as optimal splits but not strung it together so far. It's a nice technical but flowing circuit, there's a decent guide here:
  17. Yeah it feels great, until you look at the clock. I always fuck up the gentle turn under the Bilstein bridge on the mega-straight, which is the worst possible place to fuck up. I really like Dragon Gardens 2.
  18. Some tips on the Porschsliefe and apparently race c is a surprisingly fun one
  19. Actually that's quite a good way to force you to slow down
  20. The delay and slowness of the gear change animation is hilarious
