  1. Welcome to the Monday Night Racing Club! The grind shouldn't be that big for you, doing some Driving School, Mission Challenge and Circuit Experience will net you a good number of cars and credits. There's a relatively small list of cars and classes we often use, most of which are affordable. Also, signing a manufacturer contract of choice in the game will get you free loaner Gr.4 and Gr.3 cars We'll be happy to share some tips on shifting manual gears as you come on, of course.
  2. Wey hey, that does sound like a good deal. Congrats on getting that The T3PA pedals are proper indeed and having them fixes the only flaw the T150 really has. (The flimsy default pedals.) That Playseat may be adjustable, otherwise look out for a Wheelstand Pro.
  3. Yeah, we had some interesting moments there when we ran a slightly longer race with the MNRC a while back
  4. That chicane of death is perfect the way it is. If you get it right, it's good time gain (or pretty much mandatory on high level fights such as the one Mexos had with Noble and others.) If you back off or mess up and hit a wall, you lose speed. It's just racing, really.
  5. If you value force feedback I'd make a strong (pun intended) case for Thrustmaster. Logitech wheels in your price range use gear-based systems, which generate more of a glorified rumble than proper force feedback. Whereas Thrustmaster uses a belt system (though I believe the T150 uses a combination of belts and gears - the T300 uses just belts) to deliver a both stronger an smoother force feedback sensation. Plus you should be able to find a (used) T150 within your budget, as I recall some forumites have in recent months, too.
  6. Kyoto Driving Park - Yamagi, possibly the best fictional raceway in this game. It's got an amazing flow, super fast long corners in the first two sectors and rather challenging twisties in the latter two sectors. You really have to make the downforce work. We'll do it more often
  7. How many threads for this do we have by now? Anyway, I'm not sure if you can find a wheel that's compatible with both Xbox and PlayStation out of the box, though you can get a DriveHub converter to make it work on both. I have a Thrustmasters T300 RS which works with PS3, PS4 (soon PS5 too) and PC, and using that DriveHub I can use it pretty much flawlessly on Xbox One, too. Given your budget I'd recommend looking at a Thrustmaster T150 (possibly used) as it offers the best force feedback you can get for that money. A (used) wheelstand should also be out there for around 50 quid. Also, join our Monday night GT Sport racing group!
  8. Online racing for forumites and friends again tonight in the rllmuk GT Sport Monday Night Racing Club! We'll start as per usual at 8PM UK time Bring your favourite Gr. 4 car for a 60 minute endurance race around Bathurst. (As well as some other nice racing action). ^
  9. Heh, if only, I would have figured out a way to enforce much more pitstops. Sounds like that will happen next weekend considering the softer compounds.
  10. Will keep you updated! Think endurance racing Gr. 4's around Bathurst sounds like a plan but I'll let everyone have a say
  11. Reckon we should be doing more Gr. 4 racing this Monday then Endurance race too, while we're at it? Any track preferences?
  12. Noticed the console version (PS4 at least) received an update recently. Did a brief race around Zandvoort against 19 AI cars, the framerate seems to have increased though not quite to a stable 60 fps. I've read some comments elsewhere about the game hitting that now - maybe in lone training sessions? Also, private lobbies are now available though only to those owning the first batch of DLC with the 'extra' tracks, costing 15 euros. Frown. Not to mention the game crashed on my (twice) trying to look for servers
  13. Did you get the rubber conical braking mod with that T3PA set? It's well worth installing to get a stiffer brake pedal, which is more akin to the real thing and let's you really stomp on the brake pedal before bleeding off. It can aid in trail braking, too.
  14. Sure Let's settle on a night to do this - perhaps next Monday from say, 7PM to get some track teachings done before the main session? Very much up for a rllmuk racing games meet, have been in fact since the Forza days but it never materialised. (Though I did actually meet @Boozy The Clown at @Meerman's once during the Dutch TT in Assen!) Let's make this happen in 2021 Perhaps Pim, Bart, some other Dutchies and me could even hop in a car together to come over for a long weekend.
  15. Yup, he spun off into the gravel and proceeded to make up all that lost time mainly by saving fuel and tyres... As suggested before, I'd be happy to help out too coaching some people to get an even better understanding of driving cars on a track We did a similar thing in the Forza days, teaching some people to shift manual gears for instance.
  16. Online racing again tonight! At 8PM UK time as per usual, and a special 'welcome back' edition as Noble, Pim and TheRallyBart will all be returning Bring your Porsche 911 Turbo after last week's slog around the 'Ring for a decent group work-out, after which we'll see which other cars come up.
  17. You clearly missed our session 5 weeks ago Watch below:
  18. Last night there was even talk of creating our own intro video - spoofing the one F1 (very well) uses before every session That's in @Varnsen's and @mexos' capable hands I believe?
  19. Online racing tonight! Hosting from 8PM UK time again We'll mostly be having fun around the Nurburgring Nordschleife, emulating the 'Touristenfahrten' by having an open session with various cars. Ideally, drive anything you own or have owned on real life and enjoy it. After a while, we'll do a race there in Mazda Roadsters and move on to anything else that comes up in the lobby. Join in!
  20. Fun suggestion! There's no Fiesta S in this game so I'll have to settle for a Focus ST
  21. That sounds really cool! Perhaps we could do that sometime with a full lobby, too
  22. 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:
  23. 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
