This is taking absolutely AGES to install and now download the update. Been about 10 minutes and I'd say the bar is 15% along so at least an hour at this rate! Thats just not on. I have a 20Mb internet connection which can download about 10Gb per hour and I can't imagine the update being that big!

Anyone else had problems signing up to that academy thing? I get as far as a page telling me to make sure I have my sign in details ready, but that's where it ends. It says to proceed to the next page but there isn't anyway of doing it. Tried with both Firefox and I.E just in case. Cheers

I have just bought the Nissan GTR, I was hoping for some wild power on oversteer action. Huge tire smoking drifts. :-( Its quite tame isnt it?

It's got 4WD, though that's adjustable. Still, the GT-R is boring as hell.

You'd better get a Ferrari F430, a Lotus Elise 111R Tuned or (if you feel really wild) a Dodge Viper Tuned.

People are still playing this :wub:;)

Nope not me, I ain't playing it anymore. because -

1) The Frame rate is often totally shit with off putting tearing which I STILL find unbelievable in a Polyphony game.

2) Forza 2 is everything this game is and more.

Ok, so I have just bought the 07 E92 shape M3 coupe as I needed one for the Eiger reverse class A time trial. Man its a hard car to tame. I started with all aids off, professional physics on but have had to dial a couple of notches of traction on. Its all over the shop on the tight corners. I love the Eiger downhill but up hill its a bit shit.

I had the same experience too. Don't like going uphill on that course - the game feels really clunky when negotiating the hairpins in that direction. I changed the settings as you did and still didn't get any great joy out of it. The downhill direction as a time trial is nice, but racing uphill is a drag.

how difficult is it to download a save file for this. There's no way I'll be ever able to afford a F1 car. Does it affect your online profile at all?

Not very difficult, plenty of save files on GTPlanet. Save to usb device, copy, and there you go.

Looking forward to the full game, just hope damage is similar to the way it works in Forza when implemented, but with more feedback through the pad/wheel. Whist I agree with many points made in this thread, to critise the physics is a bit unfair. Every car in the game feels different to drive, particularly with pro physics and driving aids off.

If the single player mode aint your thing, try Time Trialling. Spent hours in that mode, awesome feeling perfecting a lap !...
