    really strange!! basically i struggled with the same race mate... tried and tried, kept coming 2nd,3rd due to tyre wear & just not being quick enough.. snet the car to my mate and went round his & he done it 1st time.. no tyre wear it was basically a pile of piss yet for me its next to impossible!!! that 2J is a joke!! so im in the same boat tbh mate, might try it again later!

    I also have a 2J if that would help? And yeah, a cool car in return would be good. If you want, you could send me the car, I'll dupe it and send it back to you. That way you don't have to fanny around with learning how to do it etc.

    Did you get chance to add me on PSN? If not, what's your psn id, and i'll add you. And what would you rather first, the 2J or the x2010? i'm easy either way.

    You get the x2010? I find it far easier to type here than with my controller ha.

    The cars that appeal most are the zonda, f1gt and Enzo. Most likely in that order, ha. It's up to you how many you wanna give, I'm easy :)

    You want me to duplicate the car and send it back?

    Cheers dude. Since there's a 1 car a day limit I can either dupe the zoned and send it straight back or send you the 2J and send you the zonda back another day?! Your call.

    Hope the endurance race goes well, I can't bring myself to do one yet.

    Cheers mate. I will send the 2J when I get back from work tonight.

    How did the endurance race go? How long did it take you, and what car did you use?

    I might have to give it a go sometime then. The x2010 is like a go-kart I think. Turn too fast and it's all over. How many times did you lap the competition? ha

    I got the DFGT steering wheel, and it's amazing, but a real ball ache to set up. I usually just use the pad unless the wife is out for the night. I think i'd use it for the endurance race though if I was to do one.

    I also read somewhere about people relieving endurance race boredom by attempting to force computer opponents into the pits, or trying to cause crashes :)

    yep, exactly! i managed to do about 20 barrell rolls in the X1 last night, tbh i do it in every race im leading... in them seasonal events i get to 1st place and then just try to spin the leader or stay behind them to prevent them braking + slam into wall lol! its boredom & immature but i dont care i chuckle everytime! you can cause some serious accidents on the daytona one just spin the leader then everyone crashes into him @ 200+ lol

    I need to try that more often. At the moment I just race, but when I get bored i will have to sabotage the computer players. I still have all 10 of the latest two seasonal events to do. My cousin just lent me his audi tt touring car last night so that's an easy 2 million apparently.

    ha, that's mental! I wonder why they've capped it at 20 million? Can't think of a reason why to be honest. I only have about 2.5 million, but have a fair few seasonal events left to do though, so pennies will flow a little better hopefully.

    Just a random question, which Zonda do you have? There's a few in the game isn't there? Just wondering :)

    erm...not with you! I only play with special needs drivers, and you sir sound like a professional! ha

    We should get something organised though, would be a good laugh. All buy the same car, allow the same (similar) mods and fly around the nurburgring.

    you sound like you got a lovely setup :drool:

    im well up for that, we should choose a car & allow any mods to it to prevent advantages... & nurburgring sounds like a plan... why not something like..... Cooper S? or we thinking more Ferrari Italias? dont bother me as apparently i have too much money according to GT5 :banghead::banghead::banghead:

    I probably have got it, but i'm stuck at work so can't check yet, lol. Don't worry though, i'm sure your baby is fine, ha!

    And yeah, any car would be fun to be honest, as long as they're all similar. It would be pointless if we just picked random cars as the x2010 would win everytime. I've heard the Honda NSX type R is supposed to be great fun around the ring unmodified.

    It is taking forever isn't it! I had no idea it would take so long to prepare your palace.

    And S3RYE...I'm up for it, lets see how many others we can get. Tonight is no good for me, i'm in tomorrow evening though, and the mrs is out, yay!

    Like the sound of an ASN race, also anybody else see that the seasonal events are now being updated once a week? Should help me fund the 1000 car challenge, only 786 to go!
