    Soo hang on if you haven't been driving what have you been doing this whole time? lmao

    HAHAHA I guess I'm just a GT5 encyclopedia :)

    Yeah there is a drift option in arcade i havn't tried it yet either i think it will be in story mode but im not at a high enough level to see it yet. I tried the karts last night and won :) they are hard to recover if you lose control though i tried the vw camper race and got 2nd on the first go and all other tries i kept getting disqualified as the van behind kept ramming me into the cones :banghead:.

    Just bought myself a Noggy blue S3 :)

    Can't help but feel now that I've been stitched up with my own car, apparently the S3 is a twin Turbo according to the little demo on the game, and I know my real life one isn't :(

    Yeah the graphics are but they look better than in those pics as im **** at using the in game camera lol. I will also say the 106 is a standard car and the rest are premium the 2 slrs are anyway and the standard cars dont look as bad as some people are saying in reviews and such.

    Yeah the shadows are a problem hopefully an update will sort it out. How about a GT5 car pics thread as there is one for forza 3 do you think its a good idea?

    It's epic! proper useful for the tuned car championship, theres an s2000 thats blindingly quick, you could easily spend alot of money tuning a car and not getting close! I won a stage 2 HPA r32 thats pretty awesome.

    Question: what suspension settings do people like for high power FR cars, Ive got a mental e-type jag C. 400 brake and stage two weight loss and I just cant get the power down properly no matter how I try and feather the throttle in it just spins up, even when I take it down to 350 brake.

    Hahaha the same thing happens in the R10 first and second are near impossible to control! I find with R2 as acc you can just gently throttle easier than the X button.

    That golf R32 was awesome in the last game too, haven't got that yet...

    As for the Jag, mines running 326 bhp which was ample to win the races I put it in, no problems with grip, actually quite liked the car for an olden ...

    With you on that one, R2 is waaayyy easier. I was using the e-type in the lightweight british challenges and the first race in london is so tight its just smoke and hideous understeer or awesome over steer that looks cool but doesn't help win golds lol

    I was gutted too, wanted to put some Rstt's on it.

    Wasn't overly impressed once I tuned my S3 up, however I put it round 'Deep Forest' on a free run and managed to go round quicker than my E46 M3 with similar power :) lol

    I scrapped the idea of even wanting silver on some of the licences, bronze will do fine lol as long as I get my ticket, I might return to them at a later date though !
