I have friends that do that for me


Also, I think if your friends are using your drivers in a race, you can't use them at that time. So if you are planning on doing some B-Spec racing, I would remove a driver or 2 from Online status so you can use them. Otherwise your friends my jack your driver for their races and leave you driver-less.

V 1.07 doesn't allow cars worth over 1mil to be traded. That's kind of a drag, but at the same time cheaters and dupers can't be giving out X2010s like an STD any more and then troll in the online lobbies anymore Hahaha good riddance ya fuckers

good patch to be honest...
but I was going to gift a F2007 to a friend (Friend IRL too) since I have two (one purchased when the Ferrari Challenge just started, then I got another one last night by a lvl 24 ticket)....

Yeah I love it. 90% of the guys on GTPlantet Forums are PISSED about it. They're all the ones who are trading like a business and flooding the marketplace with "FREE X2010s!!" and the debates are getting pretty heated. There's an unofficial petition in the forums and people are flaming each other lol.


The only people I have sympathy for are the ones who lent their friends a Formula car or something and now they can't get it back.

This is even easier now - share the car - friends use the car.

This is ridiculous how many times the game has to update. I can't even play GT5 because it has to update, then before the download finishes it says something along the lines of "error with download". It's a never-ending cycle. Plus this is taking forever. Ugh. Solid game so far but there are so many things that piss me off about it.

As crazy as it sounds, this game could've used another six month delay.

I feel like if it were up to Kaz and PD it would've been delayed even longer so they could finish everything. I'm sure Sony was pushing them to put it out ASAP at that point...

It's only had a few updates. You say it like they are on their 15th or 20th update since release.

Video games get updates now. I'd rather deal with the occasional update then have a video game maker release a broken game and then not do anything about it.

Also, I heard the 1,000,000cr car restriction was lifted.

It's a problem with my PS3. It's giving me shit, not GT5. Everytime they issue a download it takes a good 5 minutes, then by the end of the DL it gives me an error. I repeated this process like five times for this latest update.

Have you backed up your saves? If not, do it now. That doesn't sound right at all man.


p.s. Looks like someone wants an X2010...

This is just stupid. There's SO many people pissed off about this trading cap and they're resorting to starting stupid complaint threads like this on GTPlanet.

I'm crazy for doing so but whatever, lol. I started the LeMans one (on Circuit de Sarthe) and hope to do it in 2-3 hours shifts. It's weather changing and time changing, and the opponents are LMP cars mostly, so it keeps it somewhat challenging. Doing it in the X2010, I gain about a 30 minute lead for each hour of play, so I build up a lot of time to just let the clock run while I go off and do other things. That's still about 16 hours of play though <sigh>

Fuck me. I was 20 hours into the 24 hours of Lemans, and I kept getting a prompt to upgrade to 1.08 every 5 minutes. Fine... I can keep hitting cancel. NOPE! Right before coming out of a turn, I go to hit the gas, and the fucking screen pops up again. Instead of the gas, I acknowledge the god damn upgrade, which quits the game. I'm done with this...
