  1. Yeah I really enjoyed the Group Cs last night specially when I changed to R92CP for Monza. Got into a nice groove with it. I also enjoyed the last race at Suzuka where everyones tyres were dying. Was great.
  2. Thanks for the shout out but like I just posted in the GT Sport thread, I've lost my mojo with sim racing lately. Jan/Feb have been real stinkers for obvious reasons but work has been real intense and I've not had the concentration for sim racing. Taking a break and hopefully get back into it soon! Kinda hard to dedicate the time to GT Sport AND ACC as well as they feel pretty different. ACC is the more rewarding the more time you put in too and I enjoyed the couple of races I took part in recently. Will think on joining a future series! thanks all
  3. I've lost my mojo a bit with GT atm. Just can't concentrate that hard. Might be work at the moment but I'm not doing any GT except on a Monday night and just haven't got any consistency or focus and so I'm taking a bit of a break for a few weeks.
  4. argh that's a good point Mexos. Although to be fair, no idea where I'd put a semi-permanent rig in my flat. Still, my weekly visits to the Fanatec website will have to become monthly I guess...
  5. Yeah in fact, I was just grinding the lost sector for the exotic helmet the last day or so. Was great, tweaking mods and loadouts until I could get it down. Trouble is for new players, how long would it take to acquire all the mods you ideally want to be able to pick from to take on content like that.
  6. I'd love to do the Raid. Have this in PS4 and PC so is it the rllmuk discord you're talking about?
  7. So I have a question for those who have taken part in the endurance races we do. I have no idea about pit stop strategy. How to make a strategy. how you work any of it out. I just turn up on Monday, try and do a fast lap in practice and then watch you strategists disappear off doing half a pit stop in an hour on one tyre whilst I am constantly changing fuel map and trying to work out how many minutes are left versus fuel whilst also discussing why I haven't made dinner with my other half. I know Joe changes up the tyre wear/fuel each week but I am just completely out of contention in these endurance races despite being within a tenth or two of pole in a number of events. I did win Interlagos endurance but I think that's cos Noble was harassing Alex Albon at an F1 event in real life somewhere and Pimp hadn't made his Pimpulator Spreadsheet. Any advice?
  8. after 30 mins, i'm now 5107 in the queue. I never learn. fell for the hype as usual. EDIT. tempted fate. booted back to the login screen
  9. Ah Mykie! I think my forum account was different but I remember many nights playing Blur and HP with you and Karzee and Joe! Most excellent. What format are we all getting this remaster on then?
  10. Dare I say, I wanted more carnage. I would love love GT7 with like 30 car lobbies, time of day, weather and full damage. That said, the Lexus was really terrible everywhere except that first race which from my pov was really boring! All I could hear was everyone else having a great old time! Respect to Joe once again for mixing it up. don't think i've ever even see that last track!
  11. I'm not gonna be able to make it, work emergency. have a good race everyone!
  12. I have zero idea with setups and was very grateful when someone mentioned setting the fuel to 45L in the pre-race loading screen as I'd totally forgotten about that!
  13. Yeah thanks for that but basically, I was having a great race in second behind Santos, catching him at one point, suddenly feeling in tune with the Porsche, lapping in the low 45s when I obviously then span and drove into a wall on the final chicane. My car was buggered after that and slow in a straight line and worse in the corners. My 16 second lead on 3rd place dwindled down and on that last lap, I lost 2nd place and then you were going to cruise by and so I desperately tried to brake deeper into the corner of turn 4 such was my lack of pace so you needn't have given the place back tbh! Overall, in the practice earlier this week, I was so rusty and the Porsche a handful but by race time, I started to click with it. My fastest laps were competitive and I just need to get the consistency in the car I think. Oh and not drive into the wall! Since I'm late the Championship, can I still go make a custom livery? Or does that bugger things up? Super fun and shout out to Dave for all the work organising this!
  14. I am so rusty. Good grief. Have I made a mistake picking the Porsche?
  15. This is purely cos he has such a good radio voice!
  16. wow is that what Ivo looks like?? For some reason I pictured him looking like this!
  17. quick question Mexos, did you qualify on inters? I think the rest of us bar GwiDan qualified on the wets. I went about 4-5 seconds a lap faster once I switched to inters on my first pit stop?
  18. I actually stand by it to a degree. I was testing with the grip level for wet track set to 'real' and I don't think the physics in GT Sport really hold up that well in those conditions. Certainly on the wet track at the later time of day it was totally infuriating. That said, with grip set to low, that time of day at Spa, I had an enjoyable race and was 2 tenths of the fastest lap and was once again let down by not once looking at my fuel situation until it was way too late. I'm not clever enough to calculate what to do and just lost it.
  19. I really enjoyed how Noble attempted to utilise the McSpeed Ghost meta to his own advantage and it nearly worked!
  20. leave ABS at default, try to not use traction control if you can. Pick a track you already know and have a decent lap time with and then just drive it for an hour on the wheel and don't give up hashtag marsh
  21. it were proper good fun last night. Just can't wait for GT7 and bigger lobbies though please Polyphony. 16 people around Dragons Tail in GT3s. Moar please. Much moar. Liking having tyre wear as a kind of default as well. Brands was getting really funny by the end! Shame my game crashed in the last race but watching the new GT Sport Meta being created by Joe was excellent. Deliberate penalty to allow ghosting into turn 3 to overtake Noble.
  22. I agree but I just worry that given how long they take to do things and there being a perception amongst a lot of gamers that GT Sport was a sort of 'not proper GT' game that GT 7 as a PS5 system seller might shift focus back to the old ways. It'd be stupid IMO but I can't help but wonder. They really need to get on with it. Why does it take soooo long!
