lol what i meant was are the times like professional race drivers...very fast lol

Seems the times will just be like normal then, i know in forza there are always lunatics that are at the top of the boards, and even if you can get a slightly good setup going your still like 3 or 4 secs off the pace and its like wtf lol

On forza 2 i was once 76th in the world around Laguna Seca time trial but dno where I am now on it lol

Maximum i can do is stability off with manual and sometimes traction control off abs is a life saver lol

there is a game called race driver pro though for xbox....dont buy it loool tis bad

On gt5prologue i was 8th in the world boards for drift,( and another uk guy was 3rd i have him on my buddy list been gaming online since that lol) , then polyphony reset the boards via updates :x never bothered again


yeah the folks getting the times must be using the g25 steering wheel set up, i hear that knocks off of some time, i havent viewed a replay of the top 10 yet,

also i only use abs on races, as stm and tsc make you lose time,

il give racr pro a miss lol didnt fancy it, grid is a good sim,

into forza 3 atm, until gt5 appears in the near distant future lol

I thought i read somewhere using wheels doesnt allow you to get really fast times because of slip angle but that is eliminated on a controller

maybe i read it wrong lol

your able to use clutch with the g25, im still tempted to get, quite costly to make a set up tho around £300 region,

you are able to adjust tcs, while doing the time trial, via controller or steeringwheel

i keep getting 1,46,389 times

online record is 1.37.259 :w00t:

thats the tuned verion time

ill give it a whirl later, bt are just random, sometimes they cap othertimes i can get my full speed...which is only bout 300kb/s LOL owned i know.

oh carp was just thinking about the controller, xbox is always really good for driving games, can you use the triggers on the ps3? or use the analogue for throttle and brake?

My download took about 5 minutes too.
It's been a while since i last played GT so i went off the track quite a lot lol. Hopefully i'll improve soon.

You really need to do a lap each using both cars, then the time is added together.

Here is the leaderboard on the GT website.

can change MT AT, and can only change traction on the tuned car. nothing else, which i suppose is good i guess..

think its time to plug in my g25 see how far it can get me...

iv got tcs at 0 its preset at 7, currently 845th on tuned :w00t:

370z is tail happy, wish i could adjust a bit more camber, toe angles etc suppose having the cars the same makes it fair, but the g25 has the advanage over the controller tho all the fast times are with the g25 from what i have seen.

Look forward to trying it this weekend. Just got GRID on PC (to try new PC as well) and loving it! Pity the graphics arent a little better, but still is great game!

does it actually state then next to the persons name that they have actually used a g25 or a controller?

anyone actually playing with a g25 atm with normal car? I cant get round one lap without spinning out..............

:oops: i swear its not me...!

It's not just you, i find the car very heavy
First corner...i come off the track at 50mph, it slides along the grass and hits the wall.
Second corner...a repeat of the first but with gravel.
Rinse and repeat. lol

yeah when you view what they did to do the lap, or download there ghost as refrence on how they took some corners etc, it says they used a steering wheel controller.

I am ranked top 250th (101st) still i have you know...! (on the controller).

when i put any amount of power out of the corner it likes to come loose on 2nd gear.. very very twitchy.. didnt notice that on the controller :?

1'55.365 on normal..

Remember That This Is Just 200 Mb So They Took Out Alot Of Stuff, This Is Just For A Time Trial Tournament

1659th LOL 1 min 43.008

MUCH prefer the feel of forza than to this
traction is near max and its still all over the place sometimes

the oversteer even seem pretty comical and after bout 8 laps or so that ive done my hand is mashed with pain

annoying shape of controller to work with oh well

might have another crack at another time

the stability system isnt on, but the traction is. try that on forza and you'll notice the similarity.

im in the 200's ranking now and being knocked out of the top 250 v soon :-(

I gave up on time trial, would rather have a race to do, hope when th etime trial is over they update the demo, include a race, a demo similer to forza demo

ive played with all aids off on forza and it feels much more responsive, its like the car is on ice it just flips away from you, maybe using a wheel it may be easier as you can feel the back end getting light but its just annoying on gt

I have to agree with it feeling a bit loose. I've been playing Forza3 for the past 907 weeks though so it may just be a case of me being so used to the way that feels.

I'm sure in the full game they'll be a myriad of options to tighten up the way it feels. Also, I am rubbish, about 1260th overall!
