** Sorry if this is a re-post **I actually found that the driving insight was interesting.

http://www.gamespot.com/sports/blogs...n-racepro.html


This I understood...
"...Exiting a corneris arguably the most important aspect of any type of racing and the concept is simple: the faster you come out a corner, the more speed you'll have when approaching the next corner."

This I did not realize...
"..Say you enter a corner in second gear. Short-shifting would be to shift to third gear far earlier than you might normally, essentially keeping the car in shape in the process.

The problem with ignoring the lower gears, of course, is that you're sacrificing speed for stability, right? Well, not so fast. If you make the correct adjustments to your driving as you enter the turn, Sartori explained, all of the sudden that third gear exit won't necessarily be as limiting as you think."

You guys might already know this sh^t but I thought it was interesting.

Hold out for the BRZ STI or... Rocket Bunny FRS. Update: Scratch that. I've got a 2015 5.0/6MT with my name on it.

Race Pro seems decent, but I don't have a 360 wheel and I don't want to get one just for this game...so no go for me...
