      heeheheh, yeah me too.
      But the front is not right !!! – worse quality then some other cars of forza

    We, proud PC players are laggin behind the console racing games. That sucks so much. I would love to see a Gran Turismo or a Forza for PC. Say whatever you want about those sims, but damn if they aren’t funny to play.

    Hopefully, AC and pCars will put everything in the right place: PC Plataform, where the best racing sims lives. Because, you know, rFactor2 kinda of blows right now.

      Thanks to my job I have driven a large number of powerful cars, including such as Audi RS6, A7 or Scirocco R. And to be honest – when you drive the the same/similar cars in GT5 with driving aids on 1 (of 10) or completely off and put on realistic tyres (no slicks for sure) they feel damn close to reality.

      Racing cars in GT5 are stupid in terms of physics but the road cars are MUCH better than any mod for rF, only one which comes close is the Supra-Mod. I guess it is quite similar with Forza4 :).

      Wasn’t there some free-to-play PC title that was supposed to let you upgrade your cars and such? Can’t remember the name, but it seemed like a PC Forza.

        You know Jorge, I wouldn’t say PC was lagging behind, there are draw backs to the console racers too, when you weigh up the feature sets between the two (PC & Console) they are probably about even when it comes to pro’s and cons.

        At least you can mention PC sims by name around here without some idiot trying to degrade you. PC (1) Console (Nil) lol

    im a pc racer. My main racing has been n2003 /gpl/ simbin titles and iracing.

    ps3 experience for racing is actually very good and feel and graphics are excellent.

     bought ps3 about year ago and bought… gt5 / ferrari challenge, f1 2010/ shift one and two.
    With all aids of they feel dam good. GT5 i wish had more real world tracks and is arcadish/ but fun. To be honest most sim like feel was ferrari challenge, pretty hard to race not sure if wheel settings are right on there end but its tough to race with wheel.
