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 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.
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.
