    You have to buy the gran turismo F1 for the F1 championship level 23 + it's better than both Ferraris. I'm in tonight as I'm ill I'm currently doing laguna seca 90 lap endurance:ohmy:

    I haven't yet but it's now next on the list. In B-Spec I have that race + NASCAR championship + dream car championship then on to endurance. Did the laguna seca 90 lapper last night. Got a **** car! Some of the cars you win in high level races are ridiculous.

    Ive only the formula one championship to do on A spec, and the nascar championship and the last 2 races in b spec before I even think about the endurance.

    Was doing the formula one championship last night, 18 laps in several seconds ahead and I spun out, was pissed right off! Ended up spending about 3 million on cars, Still cant find an A3 tho!

    I've added you. I can't manage to get gold on Monte Carlo B-Spec ATM. My bro has done it with this car I just don't have the patience. So once you've accepted I'll send you the car but I must have it back so I can complete the race!:thumbsup:

    The Toyota 7 is more than capable. I smashed A-Spec with it just found b spec hard. The 2j is just a pisstaker!!

    I did the first endurance race in B-Spec just now what a joke paid 54k and 65k Xp. Going to have to do it again to level up to 26. Gettin tired of repeating now!

    Hi, no need to send it now (really appriciated the offer) another friend sent the Toyota so completed it last night. That thing doesn't half have some turbo boost in 3rd! Goes like a rocket.

    I can send you the s3 also mate if you like? Since we can duplicate cars I can send it to both of you, would have to be on different days though.

    Duplicate cars? WTF? Please explain!

    That would be wicked. Lent my mate my takata NSX for the seasonal event & in return I got a brand new RS6 with some BBS's + my NSX back. Good bit of business if I don't say so myself. Saved him bout 700k so he was happy!

    To duplicate cars, it's well easy just takes a bit of time (only a few mins though once you got your head around it).

    Easiest way is to save the game (which it does automaticaloly every 10 seconds it seems). Exit the game, and go up to save game data utility. Insert a USB stick into the PS3, and copy your GT5 save game onto the USB stick.

    Re-load the game up, give a car to a mate. Exit the game, go to 'save game data utility' and click on the USB stick. Press triangle and then copy. This will then overwrite the game where you just gave the car away with the game before you'd given it away. Does that make sense? Your mate can either then keep the car, or he can send it back to you and you then have 2 copies of the car...

    I'm sure they will patch this with the next update, so i'm being sneaky sneaky and getting it done. I have a level 17 car ticket that I keep re-using. I use the ticket, give it to my 2nd psn account, restore my game and still have my ticket. :) Then I give the car back to my original car and voila!

    And before anyone says this is cheating...I really don't care :p:p:p

    You can still only give one car a day though, which really sucks. I also have a Red Bull x2010 too, which is rediculous to drive. I got the carbon one...:racer:

    How;s about this...due to the 1 car a day limit for 'gifting cars', I will duplicate and give pjmspeedy the car, since he asked first. Then he can duplicate it and give it to reesyboy. I really can't be bothered going through the hassle of signing in over multiple days to give a car etc.

    Sound like a plan? I'll go give pjmspeedy the car now, he's already on my contact list.

    Let me know what you think of it, the x2010 is lethal. I have tried it a few times, but not too much. It reminds me of a super go-kart, as it seems very twitchy.

    This sounds like a good idea to me, and it'll mean I can get in some practice for the seemingly impossible Vettel challenge!!!

    I cheated, someone gave me it, ha! I'm only level 25 on A spec, and level 2 B spec. PSN id is crazy88uk

    I do have a steering wheel, got it for christmas actually. Only really get chance to play on the wheel when the mrs is out for the evening though as it's a ball ache to set up. It's so much more fun than the DS3 though.

    If you want the x2010 just let me know, i'll duplicate it and give you a copy. Hopefully pjmspeedy has given it on to reesyboy.

    IGI cheers for the S3 mate! much apprieciated. Had a lil go last night but compared to my lightened skyline r34 it feels sluggish. I think ive got spoilt with my new fancy cars.

    I had a go around the nurburgring with it just for cracks and found it a bit hard to get used to on some bends. seems theres alot of understeer. think ill play with the suspension etc

    Anyone else got the logitech driving force GT? its a really good wheel and force feedback is excellent! cant stop playing GT5 now since i got it lol.

    Also on a side note - cant believe i ignored the seasonal events! theyre quite easy to win and the rewards are superb! i went from lvl 13 to 23 after 8 races. still a couple spare! with some awesome cars and 1.6mil sittin in the bank. Almost feels like ive cheated lol

    offer i cant resist?? feel free to send it crazy ill add ya later today! your a legend!

    tbh yesterday i sat down to play & almost felt a bit bored but with an X2010 the endurance races will be a lot quicker i hope.. am lookin forward to seein how bob drives the X2010!

    ahh mate i aint missed one seasonal event they are crazy booster for Xp and CR... i have so much money with nothing to spend it on... nearly 19,000,000Cr now!!

    oh and my F1GT that has done over 40 races now needs an engine rebuild @ 500,000Cr, ive found the BHP on this car drops around 50 bhp after one race and fresh oil change... so am guessin this is the sign it needs it...

    Cheeky indeed, but since I really don't have time to spend 40+ hours a week playing I don't feel guilty :blush:

    Give it a go, it's well easy. The next patch will no doubt stop it too, so i'm enjoying it while it lasts.

    I already said i'd send it to s3rye today, so try get him to give it you, or wait until tomorrow and I can give it. :)

    Feel free to duplicate a touring car in swaps for the x2010? On a side note, i don't think you can sell the x2010. I seem to remember somewhere saying that cars over 500 000CR were unsellable (I think anyway).

    They could be used to trade though, that's how i got my x2010. I duplicated my chaparral 2D and 2J and swapped them for an x2010.
