did some online play last night it was pretty cool raced against 14 other cars and got 7th wasnt too impressive, but not that bad.
i have a DFGT and it works fine. i just wish there was a way to map reverse to the shifter.This for me was a great Gran Turismo; until I get a wheel that works for the PS3, the driving aids included in the game allow me to do a decent job of driving, something I couldn't say for the older ones. I was a little disipointed at how few NASCAR rides are in the game (and the fact that they repeat themselves), but I believe more will be added later.
The thing about the NASCAR representation that irritates me is that there are no restricter plates for Daytona, though I will say that the drafting model makes it fun and yet difficult to try and win at this track. I'm still trying to win the big Daytona race at the highest level of A-spec racing in career mode. The closest I came was a photo finish where I came in second (perhaps I include the photo I took at a later date).
Anyone else having this same difficulty? Maybe I just need a decent wheel (I've got my eye on a Logitech G27; perhaps order it this week).
yeah even with the wheel the only way to win at indy is to block the final charge on the last lap.A wheel would be so much better than an analogue controller (I just keep bleeding off too much speed exiting the corners). I have been working on timing, but have not yet found that sweet spot. The closest I came was when I was sitting the top 5 and barreled off into turn 3, then trying to pass the final car coming to the finish. It almost worked. Since then I have tried leading the final and, since I keep losing momentum off turn 4 I find the whole field is trying to pass me (their everywhere! Ahhhh!) Sooner or later I'll figure out to block 'em in like hijinxtattoo said.
