Update 2.08 & DLC coming 25th September 2012
« on: Sep 20, 2012, 09:34 am »

Software update 2.08 brings with it the following new features, in addition to correcting bugs and other issues:
  • Now possible to select “Disable collisions” in the [Event Settings] of online races.
  • ID’s are now shown above cars when watching online races.
  • Response of the clutch pedal when using the steering wheel controllers “G25 Racing Wheel”, “G27 Racing Wheel”, “T500RS” and “TH8RS” has been adjusted.
  • Rate of tire wear in endurance races has been slowed (excluding formula cars).
  • Amount of air resistance change when altering aerodynamic wing settings has been increased.
  • Autopilot has been adjusted to prevent colliding with the wall when exiting the pit lane on the Tsukuba circuit.
  • Adjusted the changes in control characteristic when altering vehicle height from standard height. (Vehicle height can be changed by adjusting ride height, either by installing a suspension kit or adjusting a full customizable suspension kit.)
Three new cars are also coming as DLC, at $0.99/£0.79 each:
  • Nissan GT-R N24 GT Academy ’12 (no need to buy the GT5 Academy Version just for this car!)
  • Subaru BR-Z S ’12
  • Honda Weider HSV-010 (SUPER GT) ’11

"Adjusted the changes in control characteristic when altering vehicle height from standard height."

This will annoy a LOT of people, as it means their car tunes will now all be wrong and need re-working...!   :o

I doubt it, think there will be better features to now change height..


But I'm wondering... "Now possible to select “Disable collisions” in the [Event Settings] of online races."


So what happens? Do you bounce back when hitting another car? lol

I would also guess this... although I never play online racing.

Looking at the positives (even though it's only a small one), at least PD are still refining the game and offering DLC, even if it's nothing amazing. I would still much prefer new tracks than cars though.

Took the Honda Weider HSV-010 (SUPER GT) ’11 for a spin... not a bad car actually, handles pretty good..

The cockpit view is, ummm, "interesting"...!  ???

You know the fact that they are letting us pick and choose the case in this pack is something they did very VERY right.

My review:
Honda Weider = lots of fun driving. Really liked it. Makes you feel like you're driving on rails
BRZ = pretty good. ok for 0,79 pounds
GT-R = got it only for collection purposes. Slightly better than the one we got from GT Academy
