finished the dream car challenge. Ferrari fan with Ferrari strategy
saw the weather on the screen at the 'ring and LeMans, so changed to inters. then i go, and it is bone dry.
then at Monza, go on inters aswell, but it is time for full wets, then i forgot to take these tyres off at the Tokyo track.
i now have to fix my online, to get the FGT, and the other F1 cars.
now, since i am a noob compared to some on here, i just finished the rally GT, and ive got a tip. on the dirt tracks, the middle line with tire tracks can be wet and extremely slippy, so keep on the kind of banked bits on the inside or outside.
I think it's safe to say that the weather cock-ups were not your fault though... that's something I've never experienced in the game before! I have put the wrong tyres on in a pitstop for a drying track before, but that was due to a finger slip rather than anything else.
Regarding the Rally section, I don't really like how helpless you can feel driving a car on the gravel... it's always too lethargic and the car's don't have half the grip we clearly see they do on tv etc.
I tried tackling the Eiger W (?) track in a well-sorted, but softened up for gravel, Original Mini Cooper the other day. It felt like a 2.5 ton cruiser, no turn in, always washing out to the edge of the track. I drive a similar car on one of the Finland stages on Dirt 3 and it's completely different, yet still feels inherently like driving on a loose surface. The grip doesn't always bite, but under the pebbles and dust it's there, and the gravel tyres will find it. On GT5 they've kind of overestimated the difference in grip from tarmac to gravel.
