    Love the races with pit stops. They need to do it more.

    Think I won the Aston in the daily the other day so will need to give that a go. I won the Cobra too which was nice as I was about to buy it.

    @Decks the Brands one is cool as it's very knife edge on which strategy is best.

    @scoobysi Very useful Si, unfortunately the GTS SR system is floored - ah well, guess I'll roll with the idiots until some decent people come along...

    @Beccosinho whatís your DR, I found once I got that to B the racing was much better, itís too easy to get SR up to S.

    @scoobysi Hey SI, my DR is A, having some good races but still there are just too many idiots. It's a fine balancing act: in order to get the DR up you've got to finish in decent postions and in order to do that you've got to fend off the fools who have no idea how to corner or use their brakes...

    Yeah there is definitely a bit of luck involved, but thatís the same with anything!

    The gr.3 merc is my favourite car in the whole game so far. I love itís preciseness and stability, but that it will still spin you around at a drop of a hat if you take the piss

    Iíd have thought at A the racing would be even better, I guess win at all costs is more important for some. My tactic has tended to be to keep to the inside line where possible as I find people are only too willing to run you off wide as happened to me on the last corner of Brands yesterday when someone barged through on the inside and just proceeded to push me off. Really hacks me off when I get negative SR for that too :cry:

    I prefer the longer races with fuel strategy as the field spreads out more, I go long or not pit and just let faster cars through as I know Iíll probably catch them up later.

    The Gr4 race today is great. 10 laps and tire wear and fuel both turned up. Just won my first GT race, the M4 is a beast.

    Cool, I've had a few races on that track today great for building up SR @ScoobySi - you're right these races have a lot less idiots in them and even when they do the field spreads out a bit more leaving better gaps.

    @Decks Did you pit or just save fuel, I've only done it so far pitting on lap 6 but my guess s you can get away without pitting?

    Pitted on lap 5 I think. Could already feel the tires going so wouldn't want to try and make it round without pitting.

    The game is full of total wankers today and Dragon Trail is a seriously shit track to race on. 2 races in a row have been ruined by some prick being unable to take the last chicane section properly and ramming me into a spin that lost me 10 places! 1st time I carried on racing and the 2nd time I bloody well rage quit.
    And it doesn't help when you have retards that pull alongside you on the straight and then proceed to start ramming you repeatedly from the side. I mean WTF??

    I love Dragon Tail personally. Loads of opportunities for overtaking.

    Fair enough.
    I gave it one more go. Changed cars from the GT-R to the Ferrari and actually managed to have a really good race.

    Likewise. Hammered it today. Seen both hard charge and no pit conservation work. Both seem to be as fast as each other if you make no mistakes.

    @DanB24 dr/Sr? From recent experience anything less than b/b is a bit of a dice roll

    @Beccosinho I've only seen it tried once today, I've been too scared to do it myself but the person that did ran mode 3 or less from lap 2. By the end they were on mode 5 or 6 and driving like they had four blocks of ice attached. The delta to 2nd and 3rd was about 4 seconds a lap by the end. 20 second lead went to 1 second.

    I just tried it after spinning out to last. Reclaimed up to 12th. It works but not fun. Lol

    Love Dragon Trail, hate other drivers, Just had a race with 16 drivers in it where 12 of them got time penalties in the final results, I still finished second but I dread to think what position I'd of finished in if I'd got caught up in that carnage behind be.

    My SR is B and there's still psyco's in every race it's rather depressing if I'm honest, You try so hard to race clean(ish) and it's worrying how few people seem to want to drive safely.

    Hey Carlo, all challenges have been completed with gold. I done this some time ago, but I think they upped the difficulty since then with a patch?

    They'd adujsted some of the timings to seeming make the target times harder, but then done things like reducing/removing penalties/restarts for hitting the walls or other cars, so you can cannon-ball through them.

    Basically, it looked like they were annoyed at the amount of effort people were putting in to get gold, rather than racing on-line, so they made the challenges easier.

    Not sure how she's doing it but these decals are by far the best I've seen.

    Quick q on refuelling - at a pit stop do you put enough fuel in for the laps left, or multiply it by whatever the increased use factor is? So if thereís 3 laps left, and itís on x4 fuel useage, do you put in 3 or 12 laps

    The lap count is true to what you need, after the multiplier.
