  1. Fun suggestion! There's no Fiesta S in this game so I'll have to settle for a Focus ST
  2. That sounds really cool! Perhaps we could do that sometime with a full lobby, too
  3. Online racing again tonight, I'll be back to host Lobby A at 8PM UK time as per usual Tonight will feature open racing again (with the next long endurance race set for next week), including a Group C race around Spa-Francorchamps. Please bring any of the following cars:
  4. Could you share a link or image of that helmet livery? Could well help to convince Jan to join us I'd be up for another Group C race this Monday night, as one of the several races we'll be doing. Maybe a different track than Le Mans though. Spa or Lago Maggiore could be great for it too
  5. RE: Le Mans in classic racing cars We (mostly my colleague Derk-Luiskoe who often works with him) are trying to get Jan Lammers to join our rllmuk GT Sport Monday night racing, after we recently learned he plays this game with his son. If we can Jan involved, obviously it will be a Le Mans race in Group C machinery to recreate his 1988 victory for Jaguar
  6. We'll make sure to get you in next Monday You're in the PS Messages chat group now so that should help as we generally have some chat before the racing. We usually run them as they are, lobby settings filtered for it's default BHP and weight. (So NO BoP.) No tuning either to keep the playing field absolutely level. By all means go for hosting a league! Could even do that on Monday nights like the system we used in the past - doing one league race to start and various open races (or a longer endurance one) after that I'd love to get one, though I'd have a hard time picking the best one! I mean, there's three different age/speed classes (all Gr. X) effectively: Ferrari 330 P4 1967 Jaguar XJ13 1966 Ford MARK IV RACE CAR 1967 Ferrari 250 GTO CN.3729GT 1962 Shelby COBRA DAYTONA COUPE 1964 Jaguar D-TYPE 1954 Aston Martin DB3S CN.1 1953
  7. Please do, I may find some motivation to do this grinding over the weekend.
  8. Do feel welcome to join in! We have people from all skills levels racing, mostly on every Monday night from 8PM UK time I usually host the main lobby, feel free to add me on PSN = Joe_McSpeed Won't be around tonight myself tonight, but @Varnsen and @marsh will be covering hosting duties to make sure anyone can enjoy the Gr. 3 endurance race at Interlagos that's planned.
  9. Not really. You could dip the clutch briefly (clutch kick) to actually get the car into a drift, although it's rarely used and I'm not even sure GT Sport supports it well. I think it's more of a reflex from real-life driving, where engaging the clutch is a primary reaction under braking. (And often unnecessary, unless the engine is on the verge of stalling.) You're better off feathering the throttle to keep the drift going and using gradual steering input to get it straight again smoothly. Or, if you really feel you can't hold it, counter-steer a bit more and slam the brakes - which will cost you time but can help to regain stability.
  10. I really feel you, handling oversteer and drifting in GT Sport only clicked for me after well over a year of frequent play. I used to run TC on pretty much every RWD car as any attempt at doing otherwise would result in spins sooner or later. It was frustrating, especially as I loved catching the rear end in DiRT Rally. But I remember distinctly, upon returning home after some sim lessons at Rudy van Buren's (lucky to call him a friend), I fired this up and drove a TVR with TC off around Tsukuba. Suddenly, it all felt right and I could use the right input to do this: I guess the secret is to really be gentle on your movements. Hard on the throttle, feeding the throttle (don't just stomp on it!) Once you've done it enough, it really becomes second nature
  11. Nice to see this game got the success it deserves. Especially given you can get a lot of mileage out of it without spending a single dime. I did give up on it around level 23, having beaten the second boss. It was a fun ride, but the grinding for experience and materials just became too much for my taste. Really like the overall Grasshopper Manufacture production vibes and various references to the Suda-verse, but the narrative hardly ties in with Kill The Past anyway so I decided to focus more on The Silver Case and 25th Ward
  12. Would just like to leave this clip from last night's rllmuk GT Sport session here, as a testament to the stupendously close and exciting racing we have going on every Monday night A proper five-way battle, everyone on the absolute edge yet nothing escalating into bashing or crashing:
  13. One of the many great (five-way!!!) battles from last night
  14. Online racing tonight at 8PM UK time again, as per usual We'll do some open racing again with all forumites and friends. The KTM X-Bow R around Dragon Trail Gardens to start with, then some 'good old' Mazda Roadster Touring Car racing and more Gr. 4 and/or Gr. 3 goodness to top things off - around tracks selected by the people racing tonight. See you then!
