I am having a very hard time trying to figure out a few things about GT Sport and I would LOVE someone to explain it to me how if I am working my way through 4 seconds of Penalties and get smacked in the ass of my car by someone doing about 50 MPH faster than they should be, how I end up with 25 seconds of penalties. This is F*****G B******T and it is royally P*****G me off as I have been a Gran Turismo fan since the first game. Don't even get me started on the fact that in the online races every car is supposed to be equal to promote a "FAIR" race and yet there are still people flying by me while I am at top speed as if I am sitting still. SOMEONE! ANYONE, please explain to me how this is fair because the only word I would use to describe this is "B******T"!
For races that have the BoP included.
You have various figures to work by...
You might find it easier to choose the car for the track you are going to race by looking at the categories that the car performs best in. Pointless having a fast car that cannot take a track with lots of corners. And likewise, a track with lots of long straights will suit a car that has a better top speed.
It works out quite well if you know your driving limits.
Some cars will be extremely good with their cornering ability yet the top speed will be lacking, and a car with a better top speed could lack with it's cornering ability.
It really comes down to your ability, if you are taking a car that corners better and has a lesser top speed. If you don't take advantage of the corners, these faster cars will have you down the straights, simply because you have not made enough ground through the corners to keep them behind you.
Each car has it's strengths and weaknesses, you have to determine what best suits your driving style and track.
As for the rest, yeah... Penalties are a little complex to go into and often unfair.
So here is the issue I have with your reply. On all the one make races, where EVERY CAR is the exact same thing, how can you be topped out and watch another person in the rear view mirror come up on you and fly by like your car is parked? It make ABSOLUTELY no sense. And I am not talking about using the draft cause that don't work anywhere as good as it did in ANY of the other versions on Gran Tursimo.@S2N-Ava
It's Skill level and talent.
I'm not the best or quickest driver out there, I know what you are going through.
It's all about the corner, the lines you take, the speed you carry through the corner, hitting the Apex and powering out of corners.... this will determine how quick you get going down the straights.
It's simply down to people having a better flow through the corners, with a coupled faster exit speed.... then catching some draft if you are quite a distance ahead. I'm often caught out with exit cornering speeds. The guy behind will have a much better corner and you are simply an easy overpass.
There is no magic button that they press.
"how can you be topped out and watch another person in the rear view mirror come up on you and fly by like your car is parked?"
As Ava said, knowing how to maintain momentum and how to exit corners with greater speed really changes lap times from mediocre to impressive.
However, accepting this as a challenge and learning how to do better yourself is quite rewarding in allowing you to surprise other drivers.
