Stiggy`s diary
« on: Mar 06, 2011, 08:52 am »

I`m gonna do a diary on here of what i`m doing on the ps3, so far I`m 42mins into a 9hr endurance race in A-Spec and surprisingly enough loving it. I get stopped by my missus for a cuppa from time to time and the best car I`ve found to use on this race is the new Gran turismo car you get from doing one flying lap at the seasonal event.... tune it up and cruise the hours away... anyhows, back to driving for me for another hour or so..... toodles :)

So you gotta play this for 9hrs straight, without being able to save it as you go along? Fingers crossed there's no powerspikes or cuts or anything...  :shock:

I ain't going anywhere near any more A-Spec endurances until they do an update which lets you save it part way through. I did the first one yesterday, the 60 laps of Grand Valley 300km, and that was more than enough for me. Anything more than 30 laps and I'm bored.   :lol:

Well, here`s an update for this thread...:-
I finally threw the towel in this morning at 1am, I`d done 4hrs of the 9hr enduro race and had planned on doing some today but due to prior engagements I`ve not started the race today but hopefully will start it at 9pm tonight for a few hours, if I can get it to 6hrs complete tonight then tomorrow will be a doddle with 3hrs left. anyhows, time to take me meds (aka red bull) ready for a 2hr shift w00p

Good luck, Stiggy. I tried that 4 hour Nurburgring one....... If you drive the X2010 it keeps your mind from wandering. ;)

Re: Stiggy`s diary UPDATE
« Reply #12 on: Mar 08, 2011, 10:26 am »

yeahhhhh finally completed 9hr endurance race, what a slog that was but well worth it, jumped from level 33 to level 35 so now might take a crack at the 24hr at le mans..... then again I might wait till this new update is out so I can save the game in progress. btw, I used that car the one you get given free at the academy, handles okies BUT I thought I`d give it a tune up and rebuild it`s rigidity.... now get ready for the price..... 500cr to rebuild engine and 500cr to rebuild structure on car.... :roll:

huh I thought then had to look again, yup 1,000cr ..... for a race car.... something tells me there`s a fault there with there pricing... oh and also I have no evidence on this as I was driving but a car actually drove "through" mine..... yes "through"... he was infront and going to the pits so I nipped infront of him, then automatically it shows you a clip of your car coming into the pits slowly.... and woof.... this car comes in and goes through mine!!!! the cheat, just cos he was losing :lol:
