I'm patiently waiting for my fanatec wheel to get fixed on PS4 ... There were 2 thrustmaster deals I almost jumped on. The T300RS fry's deal for $200 and the T500RS for $400 on amazon a couple of days ago. I think my set up of choice now, would be the T300RS with my CSR elite pedals using that adapter. I think this would be so cool! But, I don't really need this ... If this game doesn't get patched soon, I'll end up spending some money ...
That plus the leather wheel addon for T300RS and maybe a TH8A shifter for classic cars would be my (still somewhat affordable) dream setup too. Have never tried the pedals, but I imagine them to be absolutely amazing.

Edit: Is there NO Fanatec wheel support on PS4 at all at the moment? Or is it just bad?

Go for PCars. Despite the bugs and issues with it, it's probably the best racing game I have ever played. Assetto Corsa is good but too bare bones, however the handling feels a bit better compared to project CARS which takes time to get the feel of some of those cars. I haven't played Dirt Rally yet, but it looks good for a early access game.
Isn't that kinda how it should be with different vehicles? Do most cars in Assetto control pretty similar?

Steam just went down while I was recording my lap =(
Game just said connection lost and kicked me out of the time trial and then had a lock over time trials.

Some cars have different physics, but not as wacky as Project CARS. I shouldn't be sliding all over the place in a old ford car :/.

so fellow US PSN digital buyers...are we going to be shit out of luck on getting the modified car pack, even though we didn't have a chance to pre-order? I don't mind spending the $ for it, but I was hoping they would work something out for us...

YES!

It only took me an hour to even complete a single lap without spinning out....but I did it! And I'm not horribly far off some of the slower times either. Definitely room for improvement

Kudos to SMS - that combo sounds perfectly simulated to me..!
You can tells it's laser scanned, there are lumps and bumps all over OP, and that is true in the game, the F1 bucks and weaves all over the place like a rodeo horse, you just have to cling on for dear life and hope it stays facing forward.

Obviously the AI are completely oblivious to this, and just carry on as normal completely unaffected............

Agreed, lets see something like Nordschleife with Formula A :D

curious to see how fast you guys are around the track, those stock car times are incredible.

Glad to see I'm not the only one who didn't like the Ice Barge.

Never understood the appeal of stock cars. I guess it's an American thang.

How about the Z4 GT3 at Spa?
I've been wearing a groove in the tarmac around that place lately. I know, it's a cliché. Sue me.

I quite like them, I am fairly partial to a bit of oval racing too, I think I am one of the three people who brought the EA Nascar xbox 360 games in the UK!, still gutted that Nascar 14 and 15 were never released in the UK :(

Between this and Drive Club, which is the better game (any differences with tuning, servers, and visuals)?
Apples and oranges really, they are quite different games.

Driveclub has no tuning, PCars has a ton, servers are subjective, visuals are probably better on Driveclub.

Crash physics remind me of NfS Shift.



Overall I think the game is good but it still needs some serious work.
Yea it's really annoying at times lol. I tried to play one race with old fashion Ford cars and it felt like a HD version of Destruction Derby. One hit and my car became a soccer ball.

I don't remember the car I used in Shift but it was easy to drive under a car to push it out of the way. This also works in pCars with the McLaren but it's not as easy as in Shift.

There's also some of that Shift-magnetism after a collision.

The whole game feels like Shift done right.

If the first NFS Shift had Gran Turismo flare, Forza tracks, and Assetto Corsa penalties...it would be Project CARS lol.

While I still like the game and when everything works like intended it feels great, I still feel that the game is an early beta version and we are beta testing it for $60/€60. We have so many basic problems that ruin the experience of a racing game especially online like not having penalties for collisions, car stuck like glue when colliding or no off-track limits penalties. Time trials without off-track penalties on chicanes is a complete joke. Seriously have they ignored that?

I swear it's getting to the point where I think the game crashing to the desktop is a feature. Almost every race I have to see my desktop screen. It's getting to the point where I don't even want to play MP because of the ongoing issues. I love this game, but I hate this damn game.

I think I'm now blind from driving in one of the Kart invitationals that occurred early evening while the sun was setting. There were a couple turns and a few straights headed directly into the sun. Gives new meaning to the phrase "blind corner".

I want a button for this:
https://youtu.be/-PZ5J3GLSYI?t=3m3s

(blinding was way worse in Driveclub, people thought it was beautiful, I thought "nobody would keep racing at 160mph if you can't see corners or other cars" and was pissed. In PCARS it's better, but still annoying in a race, I turned the driving line on yesterday in the BMW M1 invitational cup at Spa, at least that keeps somewhat visible when blinded by the setting sun)

Don't get me wrong, it is beautiful, but I still have blind spots a day later where it burned my retinas.

Also to the last guy - I really dislike that Caterham. First "car" I've been able to drive in my career, and it handles like a bistro.

Ha ha..! I should know better than to diss silhouettes and ovoids where Americans can see me. Seriously though - what's the next challenge?
Hmmmmm you seem to be running low on freedom and tearing eagles, how about the boss mustang on Laguna Seca?

You've got it all wrong. It's not about real life cars. It's about the driving experience in the game. I don't really give a shit about NASCAR.

I've got a couple of finalists. I'll choose one later on today, and put it up.

I've not driven either of those in pCARS yet but I imagine they are horrible.

:p

Just realised - I haven't even been on the 'Ring yet, either. I really must get out more.
Or rather, stay in more.

The Boss isn't great, it does that funny "steering makes your front suspension wobble up and down" just like most of the cars from SHIFT did.

If you want a really sadistic combo, the Ford Mk. IV on Willow Springs Horse Thief Mile, evil, pure evil.
