Im down to my last endurance race for B-spec now. But I think I might wait and see what comes of this. I'm not worried about leaving my ps3 on, its been on for about 36 hours now, its just the fact I may want to play another game or watch a film. It would be nice to save and carry on with something else then go back to it.

And it will be the only way I do them on A-spec. Ive done the first 4 already. But I dont like the idea of keeping it on pause for days just to have the electric run out on me. So until the save feature A-spec will defo have to wait.

If true, I might finally be able to finish A and B spec modes. That is, if the update comes soon. It will probably go to the wayside when Shift 2 comes out.

Considering the entire promotional vid is done with GT5, and apparently Kaz mentioned it a couple times on twitter, is what makes me think we see it pop up in garages sometime. Who knows though.

If any new cars are coming, I want the new 302 Boss Mustang. And I got the Yellow Bird and Shelby Mustang drivable by putting 200kg all the way to the left on the slider, -50. Won the Muscle Car race on A spec with the Mustang and Euro Championship with the Yellow Bird. You would think that those over steering cars need weight in the back and maybe - is in the back. But the car is turned the opposite direction if that is what it means. Anyways, so VERY glad these 2 cars are now drivable!

Pre-ordered Shift 2. And ordered a 3rd PS3 to go with the new TV I just got. Right now they have a bundle at Amazon where you get the 160gb slim with Killzone 3 for the same price as without, $299. I am not even opening it, trading it for Test Drive 2. Was reading that buying a car in that game is like really buying a car at a dealer. You get in, try everything out, test drive it and other players are there looking at cars too! Have read were they were having server issues. But I imagine that Atari will get that fixed. Grid 2 is not due out until next year. Having some fun with that game now, although I am not into drifting and not doing those events. It has the Sarthe course. You do 2 laps, each lap simulates 12 hours so by the time you get to the Porshe curves, its getting dark. Physics are different, but not too far off from GT5.

my brand new Red Bull has 1509BHP after an oil change and has 0miles on the clock and is not eligable for an engine overhaul. my other one has 1551BHP after an oil change and engine overhaul and with 15,641miles on the clock.
Surely the older one would have less BHP by now than the brand new one

Brand new engines are "tight" and have more friction between the new, unworn internal parts. As you run it, the parts wear down, losen up and the result is that its easier for the cam shaft, etc. to turn. Thus the engine is "broken in".

Ahh, now you see, I'm not used to this much realism in games Thankyou for clearing that up.

I've shared my two drivers online but they have not been in any races and it's been almost a week. Is there something else I have to do? I was under the impression that they are shared with all of the GT 5 community and are randomly selected for races.
Is there blue text here ^^^^ Blue text = Sarcasm

They are only shared with your GT5 friends and those friends have to manually pick them when they do Remote Racing.

Speaking of which, I left my PS3 on server mode all day today and trying to spread out my driver usage so hopefully I "repaid" you guys for using my drivers some.

PIcked up Superstars V-8. Download at the PS Store for 9.99. Worth it IMO. Has Sim and Arcade modes. Real tracks, I think all are in Italy. Based on the Italian Superstar Series which is a production based touring car race that has been going on since 2004. There are two tracks in the game that have never been in any other racing game, Portimao and Magione. Adria has only been in one other game and that was in 2004. It has 18 car racing offline, up to 12 online. I don't know if their servers were done, but no one was on tonight. It has some form of force feedback, but don't expect it to be like GT5. My wheel worked right off the bat. It has things in it GT5 SHOULD HAVE. Like practice sessions, 2 pre-race. And a qualifying session. It has telemetry, and you can adjust several things on your car, like GT5. No cockpit view although the GT Planet thread shows cockpit view. Maybe its only on the PC version or its an unlock.



Here's the website. http://www.superstarsv8racing.com/



The car I have been using.








Its just a fun little game. The one track in it that GT5 has, Monza, is not much different then GT5. So if you want to try a cheap game that is fun, give it a shot.


Reviews are generally in the 7 or 8 out of 10 range or 70s out of 100

http://www.psxextreme.com/ps3-reviews/424.html
http://www.thesixthaxis.com/2010/11/...ars-v8-racing/

If you get it, pm me so we can race some online. It has an invite system on the PS3.

In May a new version will be out, Superstars V-8 Next Challenge. It was released last Feb. in Europe to pretty good reviews. Looks like disc based only, $40.

I don't know if anyone else has noticed it, but after one of the recent updates to the game PD finally added animation when you go in for a pit stop and now you actually get to see your pit crew working on your car.

Before all it was when you went in for a pit stop, you would just be stuck in the cock pit view or even worse with non premium cars you would make a pit stop and you would see no pit crew and your car would disappear and magically re appear when the work was done.
