    You get the x2010 mate?


    And S3RYE, I got your F1GT. Is it ok to give it back tomorrow as I said i'd give a mate a different car today?

    Thanks though, had a blast in the F1GT, it's rather good fun.

    I've started neglecting my F1gt, I've used it as my grinding car and put about 15,000 miles on it without so much as an oil change, hasn't dropped below 843hp though, and is still quick enough to win the dream car.. Not really a fan of it myself, too hard to predict what its going to do.

    15000 miles on a formula 1 car, brilliant! Is there any long term damage to be had for not giving it an oil change etc? Or does an engine build and chassis restore repair all damage???

    The x2010 is a bizarre car, it's very difficult to drive. Glad you got it fine though. Don't remember if I said, but it's yours to keep as I dupe'd it. :)

    yes!! you have to falk out 500,000Cr on a rebuild rather than 250Cr on oil change!!! id imagine depriving it of oil will decrease the timeframe between engine rebuilds!!

    Yeah, i know, but i've fallen out of love with that car, so its just become my grinder, i reckon it would all go back up if i do an engine re build, but i want to make sure i get my monies worth!!!

    Crazy - Cheers for that, I can't believe how well Bob drives that thing!

    All_torque - You must be, also it helps to have high level Bob's, i think it took mine a fair few tries to get it!

    I used the Ford GT LM Race Car Spec II which you win in the A-spec dream car championship. I tried loads of cars for this B-spec race and nothing worked. The GT I only adjusted the top speed and it was perfect for the job.

    Started to play this again a few days ago.......................Not had much sleep since! Been doing these stupid endurance races,Ive completed all the races in both A and B spec upto the endurance sections.

    I now regret not doing the seasonal races, As i've mates who are well behind me in terms of the career but have much more XP due to doing the seasonal events.

    Been mainly spending my money on used cars and stuff, Got a lovely carlton the other day tuned 650bhp and its a drift monster!

    Ive got about 110 cars now,wouldn't mind that x2010 as im stil at Level 27 so if anyone wants to swap a car let me know, Or do this duplicate cheat i'm more than happy

    I can't be trading at the moment, owe my cousin a load of cars, so gotta give him them first. After i've done that i'll gladly help out where I can with the x2010 and 2J.

    We still need to organise an ASN race, when is everyone free? I could probably spare an hour most evenings.

    I don't know exactly why but I have heard that there is a drivers club or something like that going to be put into the game. So I think it is because of this and possibly the next big update coming soon.

    Edit: The drivers club will have more events

    I love the fact that your best lap was No.10. So for the next 190 laps you just got worse!!! :p

    I haven't got chance to attempt any endurance races yet, don't know if I could hack it.

    Ive got titanium thumbs! That was the easiest endurance aswell. Done a 4 hour one aswell..................and lets just say they aint worth the rewards!

    I was thinking maybe the GT5 makers have had to throw the seasonal races in because it would take you years to finish the game without them,the fact that your getting less than 100k for 2-3 hour races and hardly any xp and expecting to get to level 40 is insane.

    Seems like this could have one of the major delays in the release of the game. Now who's got that x10? it looks like its on rails at 300mph!

    Does anyone have the Ferrari F1 car? If so, lets get duping it! :D

    When you say repeatable, do you mean you can give it more than 1 attempt, or that the prize money can only be won once still? (as in the old seasonal events?)

    I suppose I could wait until I got home tonight, but i'm intrigued. :)
