    Gran Turismo Sport -Tuesday nights forum races

    How about putting something out there to try for the feature race, to get us back into it, I could do with a bit of practice as I’ve hardly touched GTS since we finished previous championship. I’ve been thinking about double dipping on AC now that my wheel works on PS4, maybe with a cheap deal on the Ultimate bundle sometime. AC Competizione (official Blancpain GT3 game) is coming along well in Early Access on PC, hopefully they’ll eventually release it to console too.

    Does Outrun not save the local high score tables? All my scores were reset today from yesterday’s?

    Yep probably next week for me too I’m afraid.

    Project Cars 3. You need to read this.

    PCars2 is £14.84 on Steam at the moment but I can’t bring myself to buy it as I know it’ll probably spend more time fiddling with FFB or being frustrated with the AI and the good vs bad handling/feedback models etc. For now I’ll stick with Assetto Corsa and Assetto Corsa Competizione. Hopefully the ex EVO team can help refine PCars3 into a game I’ll want to buy.

    Nope you can tune most things even under BoP just not power/weight as you say. I expect there’s another option to fix setups as that’s often the case in the GTS races.

    I drove the Mazda last night and I expected a much trickier drive, I think the GTS versions feel a bit too planted/modern. However I really enjoyed them so I’d be happy to use in place of GR3 for a change. I think the Mazda cost 1,000,000 credits so costly but not too bad.

    It works in F2 . To use reverse grid I think we’d probably have to stick with a single class (although I’m not positive). I think it’ll mix things up more than our existing format too. For me two different classes is probably too much (2 quali sessions?), especially if the car is changing every week as I like to practice a bit first and there’s no way I’d have time for 2 cars so I’d probably just stick to GR3. My original suggestion included single make GR3 i.e. I meant same car per race for everyone but changing every week. I don’t think I like my own idea now either for same reason .

    How about trying a 2 race format, GT3, 10 laps, reverse grid start for 2nd race, bop, fixed setups, single make, soft tyres, tyre and fuel wear, starting 100% fuel?

    Good advice, I also try to do this. It came into my mind more recently too with the new Assetto Corsa Competizione where they have various ratings including Car Control which is all about being smooth, not sliding, entry/exit speed etc. Smooth is fast ultimately. I’m going to have to check this out as I hadn’t really noticed anything with the throttle. What I do struggle with is the brakes in GTS, I just can’t get on with them compared to other games. It does depend a lot on the car, in the Subaru with TC2 I find that I don’t have to worry too much about sliding whereas I find the Ferrari pretty much undriveable (need to try it again with wheel). What is weird though is that at Catalunya I found that TC really interfered with the car, it was very apparent compared to other tracks and slowed me down/felt odd so I turned it off, no doubt that’s why I spun but basically it was my own fault for being too impatient when on the astro and mashing the throttle. I wonder if that is Stability Control, you definitely want to turn that off asap.

    Absolutely, thanks @McSpeed for organising a great series and congrats to @Batmobile on the Championship win. That was a crazy race for me, poor start as I fiddled with TC trying to put some on, lost 3 or so places, then ran wide going up the hill which let @McSpeed come up the inside, we touched and I ended up in the gravel. Then a couple of laps later I spun off, think that lap ended up being a 1:59. Dead last by some distance and very close to giving up, decided to change strategy to a one stop, changed fuel to 3 for most of stint and then to 4 for laps 8 and 9 so that I could 1 stop onto mediums and run fuel 1 to the end, it was a rough guess but it worked. It was actually fuel that forced me to stop, I could have gone longer on the softs, I think turning the power down really saved the tyres. To top it all off I hit the pit wall and stopped sideways on the way into the pits, seriously considered giving up again at that point! On the mediums I just concentrated on keeping it clean and managed fairly consistent 1:48/49s and somehow got second place, which was the best I hoped for considering @mexos was in a different league tonight (are we sure he was in a GR 3 car ). Definitely a race of two halves for me.

    @wev, really sorry to hear that, I hope your wife’s treatment is effective and she makes a good recovery. I sometimes open an online room to practice, if you ever see me online in GTS just jump in, especially at the weekend as it might be a more suitable time of day.

    A wheel and pedals are brilliant, it greatly enhances the experience although I think it’s worth investing in a decent set of pedals. Some games are better than others though, GT Sport and previous GTs are ok/good but they’re not a patch on something like Assetto Corsa on PC where each car feels different and the most realistic imo (haven’t tried it on PS4). Project Cars on PC was flipping awful, I spent more time trying to get the wheel setup in the early days than playing the game, in the end I got the FFB for some cars to a good state but it was relatively crap for most and too much hard work, main reason I didn’t buy PC2. Codemasters games (Dirt series in particular) are generally just about ok although I’ve always had to have separate settings on my wheel for their games vs others. Their F1 games are a bit better. In the end I always prefer a wheel over a pad, other than for arcade racers. I think you need some sort of wheel stand though otherwise setting the wheel up all the time will be a pain.

    It’s a shame, I found one of the updates a while back borked the Ferrari and Lambo. I found the same, to stop the rear sliding I had to turn the TC down which was weird. Haven’t put much time in to Circuit Experience because I’d never use that car.
