Nurbergring seems to be  sore spot for some people and I hear about the dislike to outright hatred of it, online as well.

I really believe there is a serious benefit to learning this track for developing car control and to help stave of alzheimers in the process.

I use it as a warm up and test for new cars and before I go online to compete.

It's a great course because it's a narrow demanding course that gives you enough of a challenge without needing other cars on the track. It's also difficult to memorize so that each time you need to stay alert rather then just getting into a 2+ turn rhythm of a regular road course.

The faster the car, the more your car control reflex will develop but forget the Redbull X if it's to much to handle.

 

Think of it as a country road with no speed limit and no possibility of hitting a cow or a mailbox.

 

Do you know where the eagle sits?


Can't agree enough with what you wrote. I'm not able to play GT5 on a consistent basis, (sometimes a weeks or even months will go by before I can play) so my skills fall off.  First thing I generally do when I get back to it (prior to entering an event or after I fail miserably a few times) is several laps around Nurburgring to remind myself of the nuances I fogot during the downtime.
 Yeah, I know each course has it's particulars, but Nur. seems to capture many of the critical lessons all at once.
No, I have no idea where the eagle sits!

Where the eagle sits...

 

I'm asking because I don't know where it was but I have seen it! Did they take it out? Who is "they" anyways?

I'm sure its on the Ring around turn 5 to 10 in a tree on the left. I looked for it but i'm starting to think it was on GT4.?

This old age thing is getting to me!

Are you thinking of the ape in the Trial Mountain tree?

Nessy in Trial Mountain!  Smiley Wink

 

Bigfoot was in a Tiger Woods PGA Tour game once.

 

The eagle obviously sits on it's nest.  LOL

Nessie isn't "sitting", so that's how I narrowed it down, plus more players know about the ape.

 

Just a guess, though.

See23, I was surprised at how well the X-2011 behaved around Circuit de Sarthe in the rain.  I stayed off the walls, and stll managed to lap the field 3 times in the first 10 laps.

 

Then I ran out of gas.  THAT is a long drive to the pits from Dunlop.....

If its a video game and doesn't require a steering wheel, is it worth my time?

What were you racing (mode)? AIl Xs?
All that down force in the rain! Could you imagine (in real life) the spray off the back of it, sucking the water up off the track!?

The location of my router needs to change. Can't reach it with a cable. My wifi signal is stable at 100% so I'm not sure a cable will make a difference. Its always seems to be peak times, like Saturday, that I have the problem. Im thinking it's may be the service provider but I'm wondering if DSL is normally ok

a cable'd connection will always operate more reliably than wi-fi.  you are losing packets of info due to interference and loading a web-page you wouldn't notice it.  but in a game those lost packets can cause havoc as the game tries to figure out where on the track you're supposed to be and whose right next to you and decide whether a collision should occur.

if you can't relocate the wireless gateway to plug into it, get a really long cable Smiley Wink

It's done.
I had the DSL router moved and have run a cable directly to the PS3. Much better!
Thanks!
