Please tell me why (mainly the Americans) are scared of RACING (I say arcing, because mostly what the Americans do is DRIVE) a British (UK) person with a DE-TUNED RB X2011? Then again, ANY car for that matter.
Is it just me!?
The Aussie's and New Zealanders aren't much of a challenge either.
I only seem to get a RACE from the UK Raccers, some Europeans, when they stop messing around and every now and then, the South Americans too. (they can RACE)

Continuing this stereotype isn't helpful, though.
Anyone who follows what the on-line events are like knows that some players from the UK like racing ovals and players from North America know how to drive very well elsewhere.

Give me a break! You have freeways, too, just less of them.
Last weekend, I drove over 1,000 Km, some on highways, some on country twisty roads.
When exiting Hwy 11, the longest street in the world, onto a twisty, hilly side-road, there was a sign there that had "Drive According To Road Conditions". You don't say that to a GT player and not expect to get a smile.

This is why PD has gave us some restrictions, but it is true that no matter what PP limit you will set, people will always use the car that reaches the highest possible PP amount, by detuning and that is something I dislike too. Everytime I see an X1 in the lobby, I know the person with it cannot drive properly at all, no matter where the player is from.

I personally prefer the challenge on online races by using one car, I generally go into rooms with around 550PP and use an Mistubishi Evo, I'd much rather use the same care but make tweaks to make it better,
I tend to do well at with it, but the biggest issue is I could just get out on front at take off, then you get about 5 idiots ram you off the road. You get a penalty cause you hit an apparent shortcut, and by that time they are say 15 seconds ahead, all you can do it match there times, but I keep trying anyways,
I prefer doing 2 laps around the 24hour nurburgring with Damage, and tyre depletion on too, becuase only about 2 out of 16 actually pit after the first lap, and half way down the ring with fresh tyres thats when I usually catch them. Abeit they try and ram you off the road for overtaking them but you need to learn to be clever.

On the 24-hour course, you could sandbag the start and let the bashers and crashers take the lead. Then, as they make mistakes, you could easily pass most of the remaining drivers.
