These cars should run comparable speeds and lap times. If online testing indicates that is not the case, I'll adjust the event by administering curb kickage. pirat

Looking forward to this! I made a change in internet service this week - if anyone would like to mess around with these cars/track tonight, I'll be in the DSO lounge around scheduled race time, practicing for next week and testing the new connection

Updated, then updated again (no surprise) then went off to grab a free plastic pig... under a plastic tarp. Got in to a little Deep Forest with Fil, good times. BRZ tangibly better than the Scion in a tuning prohibited room scratch
After being away so long, biggest thing I noticed between iR and GT, the force feedback feels numb to me now in GT. Sure other things stick out too, but that one hit me the hardest.

Standard G25/G27-in-GT dullness there.

Can't explain the Scion/BRZ difference other than maybe chassis stiffness?

Didn't look in to what may differ between the two, but Fil mentioned something to that affect being in the car description, so I figure you are correct.

weirder than that, i think it's only mentioned in the dlc description, and refers to suspension, i have wondered if it is simply promotional wording, or an actual difference, as i haven't purchased it yet to test, glad to see some evidence of a difference

Subaru BRZ S '12Enjoy the natural feel of a compact front engine rear
wheel drive (FR) sportscar by adding the SUBARU BRZ S '12 to Gran
Turismo 5.Sharing the specifications of the Toyota FR-S, the
production model prototype was announced at the Tokyo Motorshow in
November 2011. In addition to the different front grill and foglights,
the driving feel of the suspension settings focuses more on stability
reflects the sports car philosophy of Subaru
. In the BRZ you can enjoy
the feel of an FR layout sportscar; a rarity in today's automobiles.

The suspension of the real BRZ is slightly different to the real FR-S/86. The in-game suspension numbers on them are identical. scratch study

I think the Subaru is in real life pushier with a little more weight (because of extra Subaru options), from what I recall creeping around thinking how I would like to turn our Impreza into the wife's car.

Hence, it's extra weird to be faster in GT land. But it's also the only one with dimensions and an engine capacity, so maybe there are a few skeletons in PD's numerical closet from setting them all up separately over several months.

hoping for attendance tonight... cars seem pretty even (note: i don't have the subaru), at least in my unskilled hands..everything is at or near 150.1, Audi made upper 149s, but i expect it to be slower in the final laps with the rate of decay on the front tires.

Thought about it, as I have no way to race other than GT5 in the living room PS3 (the office is still a bombsite), but I got some nasty bug, so it's another week away from racing for me.

Yep, just wallhugger and myself. a few people expressed interest but couldn't make it, wouldn't have been more than 4-5 people at most, looks like insufficient numbers available with any regularity, did have fun though

What track you want for this Friday? I'll de-format it into a show-up-and-drive type thing.

Cool, thanks Clacksman, I think maybe Eiger Norwand Short with weather, or maybe Tsukuba if that's too sadistic a thing to do to rusty drivers
