Re: Your Permanent List

Try the Sebastain Loeb challenge with SRF on.  I wasn't able to even get bronze until I tried that.  With it on, I got gold almost right away.

P.S. I did get a Platinum Trophy in Cars 2 - my grandson's favorite "racing" game.  And he got 8th place in an Indy race using the X2011.  I am hoping to train him enough to do the endurance races for me.Smiley Very Happy

You know, it's really ironic that you mentioned that Vettel X Challenge. It was only a few hours ago I tried the X Challenge on Monza, and I couldn't do it. I kept asking myself how I'm supposed to have the razor-sharp reflexes to take that track in such a wild car, and I got frustrated and let that one go...

 

I will activate the Skid Recovery Force and see how that works out. Thanks!

Actually, I was referring to using SRF on the Rally challenges.

As far as I can tell (based on my 3 bronzes to date), the Vettel X Challenge is more a matter of creating "muscle memory" by repetition.  To get gold, you will also need to figure out the tricks for getting around certain corners, such as cutting the S-curves on Monza.  I don't know if SRF makes much difference since the car seems to ride on rails.

And, if you are like me, the Nurburgring challenges are going to take awhile.  The rain challenges in the old Mercedes are the easiest to win as long as you drive carefully.  The dry high speed full lap is the worst - I am still 10 secs from gold in that.  No SRF allowed on this.

I thought I would use this thread to give a special shout-out to The_Teacher_1907. He has achieved the Platinum trophy in Gran Turismo 5! Smiley Happy

 

Excellent job! Nicely done.
