Oh yeah, I suppose in that case you could in theory cover more ground in less time. I only tried it a few times and gave up because I thought it was cutting out at the same spot in the tunnel. But yeah makes no sense to give you more time and then be like sorry song is over haha. Maybe in the non-demo the song will repeat? Now I want to go test it but I'm not home haha.

Also, I found that turning off ASM really helps you lap quicker times. I play with TCS at 0 (I'll probably have it at 1 for the crazy high hp/fast cars). Controller too since I don't want to spend 1600 bucks or what ever it was for the Fanatec DD GT, H shifter, handbrake, and mounting rig.

Well you're a better driver than me, I got Gold, Silver, then Bronze. Although I turned all assists complete off and was driving a manual. I am also using the standard PS5 controller.

I know games are big business and there is marketing benefits to be had but even so this is quite an investment for a game.

One assist I can't turn off is ABS. Aside from that, I used to play with TCS on in Gran Turismo Sport, and just practiced my trigger control as I turned it down and eventually off. Although 7 has the adaptive triggers, and the handling characteristics are very different than Sport. So I'm having to get used to everything again.

Also, 7 is probably the hardest GT I've played, which is a good thing. I put the difficulty on Hard, and sure enough, I can't win the one GT3 race that's available at the start. Best I got is 4th. The AI actually defend, and have several times intentionally spun me out.

All of these GT specific cars don't actually run IRL, right?

That is my understanding but I'm guessing if you got a team of German engineers they could push it up to a speed of about 8 km/h.

On the PS4 I wouldn't have either, but with the haptic feedback controller it isn't too bad, just more difficult. And yeah I noticed that if you bump an A.I. player it seems to get way more agressive with you, so cool!

I was just passing one really close due to being mid corner. Once we got on the straight, around I went without notice.

It's a love/hate relationship with these test. Much more challenging than previous tests. While agitating, it does make the game more worth the cost. I got through A. I'll try finishing the rest the next time I play.

It's worth trying to get gold on each one since they'll give you two cars at the completion of each license. I can't remember the completion car for B (some car I'll never use), but the all gold was the 3000GT VR4. A gives you the Scirocco R for completion, and the BRZ STi Sport for gold. I'm curious on what the other cars are.

The trigger feedback on the controller was a nightmare until I figured out I could turn it off or at least turn it down. I figure the accelerator trigger doesn't need any feedback, only braking. Even then I kinda struggle to see the benefit. IMO it just makes it hard to know how hard you're braking. Usually get gold on all the B license tests in 1-2 attempts (got the license in about an hour) but I feel like those have been the same challenges for the last 4 games. Music rally is hilariously awful, what's with the music?? Music is the first thing I turn off in the settings. Graphics look good, handling model is great. Only played about a couple hours so far though. The A license tests are a bit more challenging.
