Here's a Supercar video, car behaviour looks really good unlike some simulators which have their cars wobbling around. 

 

 

The really good news is that there are models of a 240ZG GTS-II, 280ZX IMSA GTX and two Z32's. But if you buy check what cars you are getting to make sure.

I am not one for those games, but that is impressive.

Yeah not bad and great practice for the real thing in your own Z ( or even this )

 

But hey, come and do it for real at Challenge Bathurst in November in your own car, I still have 2 spots left if you get in real quick!!! 

 

Here's this years link http://www.viczcar.c...bathurst-2017/ 

and what we did Last year http://www.viczcar.c...bathurst-2016/ 

 

I have 53 competitors ready to go for CB this year,  22 Z's and ZX's, 40 awesome Nissan/Datsuns all up, in the field of 53 so far with the other fantastic cars.

 

Keep the weekend of the 18th and 19th free, if you can't come out to Mount Panorama there will be some great live car tracking  and video feeds from around the circuit to live stream

Is it bad I saw 24 Dat's video (before I hit play) in his post and thought "jeez, Project Cars graphics are real good"

 

Edit, Doesnt have VR support on PS4 yet, but they say they are working on it.
It'd be brilliant with a proper seat and wheel setup even with just the fixed view in a VR headset.
Looks like its going on the shopping list

Having sort of raced around Bathurst should enhance the Project Cars 2 experience and be good track familiarisation too. Besides I want to 'drive' that IMSA 280ZX complete with turbo lag ;D If anyone puts theirs up on YouTube let us know, maybe as another topic.

The G nosed 240Z that is modeled should be a good practice car for most of us, no unrealistic aero assistance, top speed 257kph, 300hp, weight 1,060kg. I guess that it could be tweaked to replicate an individuals car's handling too, particularly that rear end step out so apparently loved by a lot of S30 punters lol.

Looks like the Bathurst lap time for this Z are around 2:40 which seems reasonable, the suspension is adjustable and the limits seem fair eg caster could not be adjusted past 5 degrees which is S30 realistic. But at the default settings it's pretty weird to 'drive', the steering in particular. Apparently the steering can be tweaked, it will probably take me a day to work it out though, more complicated than with a real car lol.

It's all about setting the dead zones and the acceleration rates. I was doing the same with Forza Motorsport 7 on the weekend and found it's worth sitting in the in car view and watching how fast the steering wheel turns relative to your controller. You might find that it's way over sensitive.

My S30 is one big dead zone lol, low speed understeer, high speed oversteer. This must be why I got out of S30's hehe.

I just bought PC2 on PC and straight into the 240Z haha. We will have to have an online Z league. Who else has this on PC?

I'm going PC too, suspect that there are more tuning options than with PS 4.

I have it on PC - with VR!

Seriously, go VR, no reason not to with the recent price reduction of the oculus headset.

 

I gave the 240 about 2 - very accident filled - half laps of bathurst before moving on to other cars (I've been enjoying the ginetta). I'll try again later, but so far not loving the 240 as it seems very taily and not fast enough for 300hp. Happy to join a league tho to have a reason to give the car some time.
