i drive with every assist off except ABS full. TCS 0. GT3 cars will understeer even at 40. you have to trail brake perfectly, weight transfer perfectly - not too much or it will understeer more, turn the steering a certain way but not too much not too little, not touch the throttle at all, pray the outside tires are not on the surface with no grip, not touch the kerb ...

and one time out of 100 it will turn like on rails. the other 99 times, turn 1 at spa bye bye

high speed corners are easier

I will say the GT games have never been true "simulators" despite the tag line. They were simply better than the competition (the competition at the time being full on arcade games like need for speed). So by comparison it was the most "realistic" game you could get on console.

GT7 is IMO the best and most realistic iteration of the Gran Turismo series (despite all the technical and business issues the game has issued since launch). It's no rf2, but I don't think it's meant to be. I think of it as a more.accessible and approachable realistic racer than hard-core simulators like rf2. I think if you can get past the idea that it's not a truly realistic game compared to... real life... you'll see that it's a lot of fun based just off the variation of cars and tunability.

As for understeering in a GT3 at 40 mph... I'm not sure I'll have to go back and check. I don't recall experiencing wonky issues like that... I'm using a fanatic ddpro setup and it's been fantastic.

G99 is right, you have to exaggerate weight transfer to the front end like crazy.

It's definitely fun, it's just terribly unrealistic especially compared to ACC and iRacing.

I'll have to check again - it's been a few weeks since I last played. But agreed it's not on the same level of realism as something like ACC or iRacing - but I don't think GT ever has tried to be (despite all those taglines of the "real driving simulator"). ACC is now on consoles, but I don't find it to be enjoyable as GT7.

Is it crossplay? I've got it on PC if you ever want to get smoked.

I have no idea... I rarely play it. But it does pair well with the fanatec ddpro. Maybe I should give it another shot and compare driving characteristics between it and GT7.

This is 100pc true. The last super tight chicane at Trial Mountain is a great example. If you don't carry the EXACT correct speed over the left hander there's no way to rotate the thing quickly for the right hander. Like you're either right of you lose half to 3/4 of a second.

At the moment I play cs go, and also open cases on the platform https://skin.club/en that's interesting.
Unfortunately, I did not play this game with a joystick in the form of a steering wheel, but I just played it on PS5, it's really cool.

It does cost a good amount, $200 more I think? but itís a far better experience and itís upgradable and expandable if you find yourself getting into it more and if not, well it will retain 90%+ of its value if you want to sell it. The DD Pro has the DNA from a $2000 professional sim unit and all the high-end accessories are compatible.

No comparison to the thrustmaster or logitech can be made, itís like comparing a plastic spork to a Japanese sushi knife - itís that significant a difference.
Hi guys

The Fanatec DD Pro for PS5 is an exceptional choice for GT7. Its direct drive motor offers a superior experience compared to Logitech and Thrustmaster wheels, with smooth and silent operation.Free Fire

I have the T-GT II, it was the only thing available at launch. It's on the cheaper side. I think it was $1,200 with the LCM pedals and I replaced the wheel with the F1 style open wheel and added the shifter. I mounted it to a play seat that folds up which i was able to mount a buttkicker to that I tied into the steering wheel rumble signal. It's a good budget setup, I think I'm $1,600 or so all in. Im yet to try a DD system though.
