Hmmm maybe time to boot up my PS3 that won't read disks and see if I can still be significantly above the world average while remaining terrible compared to everyone I know... Laughing

People without a PS3 internet can enter the competition via a series of GT Academy Live Events that will be promoted by PlayStation and Nissan locally.

Yea for clacksman, you're a shoe in Wink

If I understand clacksman's new signature, I believe I fall in the clown to pirat range, with enough  study sometimes I'm even a Smile

 Emphasizing the study should lead to your Smile being more than sometimes, and that's better than being confused leading to your range going Arrow Arrow Arrow

On a good day, on a track I know well, I might even be a hard stretch to Cool tier, but that's a lot of study. After all this damn travelling I've been doing, time away from my wheel led to Suspect  last time out, which saw my SR Arrow Arrow Arrow, resulting in duh!.

c-man, get some gol'dang internets back. Ain't no study like 'not holding clacksman up too bad' study .

 I think it says a lot about how twisted my brain has become that your scale makes 100% sense to me.

http://www.gtplanet.net/gt5-vs-gt6-demo-comparison-video/

If you're going to to a comparo, at least get the exact same cars. They're all available.

Demo's good. You actually earn money and buy your cars, race in the Sunday and Clubman cups (lite editions consisting of 2 one make races), then get advanced to the GTAcademy rounds. There it's 4 qualifiers on sectors of Silverstone and the final is a full lap TT which is scored for the contest.

Physics are quite different. The first thing you'll notice is the bodyroll on the suspension. Next is the increase on grip traction. This might be the end of the 'ice racing' complaints. Tire noise is far less intrusive but still very informative. Driving the 370Z feels good. You can plant the pedal in 2nd gear coming out of the last corner on GVS-E Reverse and the wheelspin is subtle but doesn't want to send the backend around immediately.

Could be good, hope they build a good online interface.
