Mechanical damage is now available for offline races. Also they added a Grip Reduction on Wet Track/Track Edge option.

Someone over at GTplanet is claiming you get the CLK-GTR if you've completed the Intermediate AMG events!

Takes me back to GT4 days, all those hours of grinding the DTM championship for this car... :)

My worst track is Nurburgring. I can't seem to memorize and predict what's coming next for that map. There isn't a lap that I finish flawlessly or fast.

What track people hate the most here anyways?
I'm awful at the Nurburgring. I always seem to spin out or get off track as there are so many blind corners. My car is bumpy as shit on that track too. :\

Just when I thought you couldn't possibly be any dumber, you go and do something like this... and totally redeem yourself!

I've memorised it now - just kept doing laps in the Audi A4 touring car on the DTM championship extreme level - 83,000 credits a lap.

it's my 'grind' race - if laps of the nordschliefe can be called grinding - love it.

Someone said the Mechanical damage is for practice mode, but that wouldn't make sense.

Exactly, because this generation it's either been one or the other.

I'm not sure how to check if it's PSN locked but it does seem like you can back up saves now.
Backup them on some USB stick.

Switch accounts.

Try to "copy/paste" them onto any other PSN ID account on your console.

Thanx in advance.

You're able to send it to another profile on your PS3, so wouldn't that be what you're talking about?

Yes indeed, and in a very short timespan. Lots of developers can make you wait a few months to fix bugs or add some features. Can't wait to see what else they are working on!

Fuck yes! That is some awesome news rolling in. Soooooooo glad I can finally back up my saves. Massive relief. Looks like Ol' Kaz delivered the goods for once.

Fingers crossed to the point of breaking for online XP and Cr. when the servers go live!!!!!!!

Any word on G27 button mapping?

Are we able to turn off certain elements of the HUD or is it just all of it?
You can choose to turn off your speedometer and leave the other stuff (like time) or turn everything completely off.

Damnit.

I was hoping they will PSNID-lock them.

This way it opens the Pandora's Box of 100% save files for interwebs usage.

But whatever.

I really hope we can save during endurance races. The save back up is a huge buffer for that, I will always back up before and after an enduro or B Spec binge but still, saving during a race is so convenient and smart.

I kind of feel your worry a bit but every other GT game to my knowledge had the 100% frenzy online and it never bothered me. Perhaps since I was never playing online in those games it masked it.

I look forward to being able to look at an online profile, see that they are clearly a 100% save file cheater, and the proceeding to smoke the shit out of them in a race because they never put the seat time in :D
