Nothing like I thought it would be, its slow loading, menus are complicated at first, you have to buy heaps of cars to do certain races.

Rather play Forza 3

Today i managed to get the 4.898 mill needed to buy the f1 gran turismo. WOW!!!

I decided to have a crack at the races and its not too hard to keep up/beat the other cars, but as soon as you hit a ripple strip or even remotly touch the accellerator on a corner.....see you later.
Got SOOOOO frustreated i gave up.

Might have a crack at the 4hour enduro for mx5s tomoro im thinking.

I have done the 60 lap of grand valley, took a bit under 2 hours in my race spec corvette. I was only getting about 10 laps out of a set of tyres as i would get bored and start drifting.......tyres dont last long with 850hp going through them.....

Nice,

What have you got done to it? IE mods, tyres etc

I will have a crack with my 190E, see if i can beat it.

Managed to finish the F1 championship, so now i have finished all bar 3 races in A-spec mode (not including enduros) And funnily enough they are all in the beginner series.....They are just toooo slow.

I just cant wait until im at level 30 so i can have a crack at the X1.

I got a 69 camaro and race specced it. You just have to make sure you dive into the lead on the first 2 or 3 corners and hold them off down the straights.

Its not tooooo difficult, (i managed to get it first go).

I have also read that using the lambo countach fully done up can beat them aswell.

Yeah i noticed that. They just seem to pull away and you cant catch up. How is it that they are the same cars and yet they are faster????

They are the same... but because of drafting and the whole push and pull thing... if you are in a group, overall there is less air resistance, and you maintain a much higher speed. Fall out of that group and you end up with a whole bunch of "dirty" air, which doesn't allow those types of speed.

I understand the physics of it dude. I was just stating the problem with that race in general.

I have also been enjoying doing the seasonal events. There is a 2 lapper of nurburg in the nascar. Is quite a good race. You get lots of EXP and a fair bit of coin for them too.

For Like the wind series I used the Veyron for Daytona & the Mazda Furai Concept for Indy, both were hard races, especially indy as I got a 0.100s trophy.
