GT5 Grinding

Anyone here doing this? Dunno what it is? Ask if you wanna participate and I will explain.

Also there was an update: http://us.gran-turismo.com/us/news/d5595.html

Did you get it, cuz if you miss it you will punch yourself. All online dealership cars are 0 miles and 1/2 price!!

3 of the seasonal event races are also triple money and XP as well, for a short time. Good luck with that Lotus event though, that damn thing was a nightmare.

Managed a 4th on the Fiat one. Can probably get 2nd or 3rd with a few more try's just need to stay on the throttle thru a couple turns I was braking in. Any tips for set-up on the Lotus one? Tried once with my previous win set-up and was all over the place.

You grinding??

I got 3rd in the Fiat event, 5th in the Lotus event, and 2nd in the Subaru event. The Subaru one was my favorite, the Fiat one was boring, and the Lotus one was a royal pain in the ass.


A-Spec grinding got really boring, I usually just race with friends occasionally, and do the seasonal races whenever they update them.

Managed 2nd in the Fiat event after a few trys but your right, what a boring race. Gonna try the Subie tonight.

I was meaning more B-spec grinding as in using the widget. Was wondering if you have drivers you need raced. I'm usually running about 20-30 hours of bspec grinding a week. It's good for about a Mil a day in credits if you have a few friends doing the same as well.

Yeah, I think I have 4 or 5 of my 6 drivers available for some online grinding. After the PSN outage, I always keep my first driver offline, just in case. I used the widget for awhile, I need to start using it again. I havent used it since the outage because Im usually playing something else on my PS3, or running a 24hr race.

Add me: Hejew

and I will run your guys when I'm grinding. I have been doing it primarily to buy cars I don't have and you don't get as gifts.

Also keep some higher level car coupons as you can cheat them.....

Man that's weird. You have enough memory left for that right? The only time I ever had an update fail on me was because it told me I didn't have enough room after about an hour of updates...
