Just got the works mustang. Working on finishing all the tier 2 events before I go on to tier 3.
With AA/AF to the max, this games looks STUNNING, especially before the race starts and the camera pans around your ride.

The whole money/star/points thing is starting to get retarded. You are going to get money/points anyways, doesn't matter how you play. You get random money bonuses as well.
I got 15 stars to go to get to Tier 4, and I haven't done a single Tier 3 race O_O
I had to turn my speakers down for the Pagani Zonda R . Can't wait to drive the Reventon.

The Pagani R > Reventon

Reventon...to me...has a severe push, due to it's AWD.

It doesn't handle like it looks. Neither does the Bugatti

Yea, I gave up trying to do the Bugatti invitational race. I got to tier 4 after doing only one tier 3 race. Bought the works murcielago right away. What a pleasure to drive that car is. Very forgiving. Because of the messed up physics, i can pass cars by going underneath

No matter what I do, I can't handle that downhill s-type turn @ Laguna Seca. I either accelerate too early, spinning out, or go too slowly and they pass me. Why can't every track be like London or something.

That would be called the Corkscrew. And it's one of the easiest to maneuver. Just aquire desired speed, then just "float" through the corner. No gas, no brakes. In the Zonda R I can go about 65mph.

well yea, I am guessing you either float or gas your way through, since the race line is green I believe all the way through. It sort of feels weird because it is like a blind turn. When u r at the hilltop, you don't see where you are going to be going.

BTW: GT2 still sucks balls.
