Thought I'd best create a new post for this.

For those of you with a PS3 some of you may not be aware that theres a GT5 competition online at the moment where you can download a demo of GT5 with the Nissan 370z and a special Indianapolis track. The competition is to get the best laptop time in a tuned and untuned version of the car before the 24th? of January 2010. Full details here http://eu.gran-turismo.com/gb/academy/2010/

To get a bit of rivalry going on the forum, get your best times posted in this thread...
By the end of the competition, the winner will have to validate their time by submitting a photo.

The winner will get this stylish ColtUK TShirt!

if you dont have a wheel your as well not bothering, the game is hella twitchy using the controller you'll never get a good enough time using it.

Dont you believe it - I swapped to steering wheel and my times are abysmal since - contemplating going back to the joypad atm :O
I believe some of the creators prefer the PS3 pad to the steering wheel too.

I'm starting with the hardest first (untuned) and the other one should seem easy in comparison!

.:Updated:.

Hahah yeah - it was intense when I did it :D
Dont bother with the handbrake it slows you down too much.

Where possible dont drop to 2nd gear (except for the double chicanes), you dont get any extra speed if you do. Infact 3rd gear also seems to stop me from spinning out as much, could be due to over accelerating and losing traction when in 2nd.

Also worth changing the button assignments to use R2/L2 as the accelator / brake if you are using the Joypad, as you can have greater control with them rather than the standard pressure sensitive buttons (X,O,T,S).

Once you've got used to the racing line, remove it, it gets in the way and gives you a false line to follow as you need to focus on your position and speed as you enter each corner.

If I think of anything else which is of any help - I'll post again.

Enjoy :D

LMFAO!!!!!!!!!

As for handbrake, all i can say is it helped me lose over a second. I give it a tap or double tap on the final chicane.

As for L2 and R2 i did it straight away lol, it also allows you to do heel and toe with ya fingers lol

Are u in Auto or Manual Craig?

Manual naturally

(though my first time I posted was in an auto whilst I was getting used to the track and really struggled to beat it when I switched to manual)
