    I don't really agree with disabling vibrations in Rally, they might be a bit disturbing on the straightish bits, but it's incredibly useful to know what the car's doing in the bends, and the vibration makes that child's play.

    Special Licence:
    - Go off-line to get the best chances of overtaking the AI, they make it incredibly difficult to get past especially on tracks like Suzuka and Laguna Seca.
    - Keep ABS on minimum, they let you brake at maximum without worrying about locking up. It's a bit cheaty on cars which wouldn't have it, but needs must.

    Special Challenges:
    - TG test track go full throttle from the first corner and don't slow for the kink before hammerhead, that's a great way to get past. Braking points are key, and where the most overtaking is done.
    - On the TG Elise one I don't think there's any shame in using driver aids, the least grippy tyres in the game make it a bit harsh.

    Great tips! Especially regarding the Elise - I now don't feel ashamed to whack on some TC!!

    I guess I will have to start saving for the Toyota 7 then! I tried the classics race with a 1974 Countach (with all but a rocket strapped onto it!) without much success!

    I second the tip regarding the karts - never, ever use the brakes - in the last challenge you need all the speed you can and using the brakes will only make you lose too much speed or cause you to spin out.

    Glad I'm not the only one finding the elise challenge difficult, absolutely impossible to handle, if an elise was really like that they'd never sell, its mental, first challenge I've not been able to complete, will be trying it with TC on tonight.

    No problem with rally feedback here on G25 but can't you turn down feedback strength in the options, I thought you could in previous titles, not looked in this one.

    feedback should be as high as it can go not off.

    Hi, I'm thinking about getting the game but i don't have a wheel for my PS3. Is it important to get a wheel if I'm going to get this game? Or should I just use the PS3 controller for now? Christmas is coming up and with a bit of luck I might get both :D

    It is possible to use a pad. I've found that with the more powerfull cars I'll usually leave the TC at 5 when using the pad.

    A wheel does make it easier and much more immersive, but its also pretty good with a pad.

    Avoid the Commodore SS 04 - according to the text it covered "9.3 miles in just six and a half days."

    :p

    Fun might be exponentially increased with a wheel, but must-have? Nah. :p

    +1, although I might not be available every week as uni work is piling up a bit atm with a few deadlines coming close.



    Also, why the hell did they make the International A - 7 license impossible to get silver or gold.
    The rally one with the impreza. It will not drift properly, you get sideways, and it won't put power down properly, as if the TC is still on, even though it isn't.
    Currently, I've only managed gold, and that's from cutting half the track. Really pissed me off that one.



    And I finally did the TG elise challenge. Turned TC up to 10, and had to put the skid recovery thing on, :D. Could probably do it with my wheel now after all the practice.

    Want a free Jaguar XJ13 Chrome line race car?

    Click Here

    Basically, just do the night shot thingy, then create 4 grudges with people. I had to pick people from the 'all' list, as it didn't work if I picked friends.

    Not the Jag XJ13.

    I got the Collectors edition bundle with PS3, and the code didn't give you an XJ13.
    The chromline cars inc in the premium bundle were :

    M3
    Cobra 427
    Lambo Murci
    Merc SL Gullwing
    Audi R8

    right, seems a few people want a respectable race. fine. add me to your PSN's (Ein-Sof) with a MSG as to who you are on these boards and I'll see about throwing something up.

    expect there to be no aids other then some basic ABS, regulations will be strict and real surface traction loss will be on. :thumb:

    Gentlemen, expect no childish or amateur drivers. race night will be Wednesday (08/12) night 5 laps of Suzuka possible bhp limit, Christ I don't know, ideas people?

    Minimum weight, maximum hp, restricted tyres (I would suggest Sports Hard, for a good balance between grip and required skill).

    For the first race I'd suggest:
    Min. Weight: 900kg
    Max. Power: 180hp

    Then you could up the power and weight limits accordingly each race after that, then for the last couple you could de-restrict it to the S2000 race cars/NSX race cars etc.

    Fast cars are all well and good, but the real skill and close racing is all about the slow ones. :p
