Spa might just drag me back to this.

I made the UK GT Academy Finals in the 2nd competition when all we had was Prologue and wouldn't go a single day without racing online with it. As soon as the full game came along, I loved it and still do - but the online racing scene is something yet to catch my full attention.

iRacing is just too damn good for competition...

Suggestions on a decent but not bank-busting wheel? Dualshock is a bh even after playign with the sensetivity settings I couldn't do a lap of the second rank TG test (elise)! Much likely due being crap but still...

Playing on a sofa in the lounge so no desk to screw it onto...

IIRC the trick with that one was to whack the brake balance forward. Like F10 R1. Stops it swapping ends under braking...

That's a plan - although the braking isn't so bad, it's the inability to turn without doing a pirouette!

just seen a couple of youtube videos of forza 4 around nurburgring GP...quite frankly, it doesn't seem to hold a candle to GT5 except in one thing.....engine/exhaust sounds.

will try forza on a mates xbox i'm sure but i really wasn't fussed with forza 3 - the physics and general game play was so unrealistic. i suspect the 4th one won't be up to GT5 standards.

2 things that i REALLY want improved with GT5 though:

1 - engine noises (forza 4 and even NFS shift are WAY better than GT5)
2 - computer cars are actually hard to beat in similar spec cars.

I think with exactly equal PP and tyres it's sufficiently tricky on most races...

One of the joys of the caterham is you can tweak it to pretty much any caterham style kit car made.
If only it was a premium model with different bonnets and noses.

I use the racing gearbox, supercharger and comfort soft tyres. Unbelievable fun, you really appreciated the physics and game.

exactly the same as me, a standard Caterham (with a better gearbox) with cockpit view on sports hards around the ring is unbeatable :-)

To the people that are losing game save data when updating software - is it only gran turismo data you lose, or is it everything?

How do you back up the save on a fat PS3?
I used a portable hard drive, formatted it to FAT32 (a pain as WindowsVista doesnt convert to FAT32), then back up info.
