I was lloking at the E3 trailer from 2009 for GT5, and I noticed Michael Waltrip Racing Toyota's in the trailer (The 55 and 00). I wonder... more toyota's possibly to be announced? Seems unlikely Polyphony woyld pay for the license and then not use their cars...

Please don't bump, this thread is 3 months dead, no need to revive it. Not trying to be mean, but I've seen people get banned for bumping.

I've been hearing the server has been overloaded with people since the launch which has caused problems with the Online Multiplayer and the game it self. It might be a while before the extra traffic dies down.

The NASCAR part was just to sell more copies. Never meant to be a strictly NASCAR game.

Yeah, they sent a note out saying that the servers are congested. Read the notes on the GT5 homepage.

NASCAR at the Nurburgring, with rain, night, comfort hard tires, no aids and (obviously) no headlights = the most extreme challenge anyone can dare to do?

I wonder why no Dodges were added to the NASCAR portfolio

If I had GT5, I would do that.

1. cant drive from the cockpit in every car (NFS Shift did that better)
2. Rather then making a 16 or 20 car field for nascar you end up racing 2 of some people. (Dumb)
3. Long a$$ load time. And I mean longgggg (like and hour and half with the required download update)

Several other little things you will notice. Its fun with the wheel, but over all I just feel like it should have been much better.

Go to options and then scroll down to file system and install the rest of the files. Should help with loading time.

More premium cars are on the way.

As for racing the same cars in Nascar, that's more of the sponsor then the makers. There is some word that more Nascars are coming.

I did the content install. I am talking about the intial load. That took way to long in my mind. For the amount of data installed i would expect it to be more seemless like with Oblivion. It has a 4 or 5 gig world install and there are no load times at all unless you do fast travels. and that covers 16 square miles of real world being loaded.

I like the GT challenges. Having fun so far. Just the amount of time spent on it, i expected more tracks and cars for each type of racing they have in game. You can do alot with 50 gb of data. I feel like that they didnt properly use the space available to them.

Just got the game. Wasnt expecting it to blow me away on the NASCAR side (which it didnt). However it wasnt bad at all I think its better than any EA Sports NASCAR game for PS3. The graphics look great! I think a few more NASCAR cars added to the game so you dont have to race 2 Jeff Gordons would be nice. The rally and kart races are great too. Good stuff so far.

I wonder if they will someday add Nationwide cars and CWS trucks to the game. Also the game lacks a Bristol-style oval and a one-mile oval. I wonder why Infineon Raceway was scrapped. Watkins Glen would be a very good addition also.

You're in for a huge disappointment: I heard nothing from PD that they'll add that feature. GT5 isn't really a NASCAR game, anyway, so don't expect anything from them.
