I had to dust off my ps3 to play gt5. I'm blown away. I don't know why I didn't just get it on the first day it came out. Start posting laptimes guys.

Guys, is GT5 freely available in India? If not, I'd prefer to buy from the US when i return to India next month. Costs around 55 USD, which seems a trifle costlier than the Rs 2400 in India.

Wow!! I am impressed I must say!!

I am now motivated to put in more effort for drifting in GT5. Was pretty good in the NFS series. Till now I am busy racing only in GT5.

One question! Are you using the controller to do these drifts or do you have a steering wheel?

I just started drifting in last few days, it takes few trys to get used to. I use controller with car setting Sport Hard tyres, TCS off and ABS 1
Add you on PS3

I have hot pursuit and gt5
NFS is unrealistic, drifting is easy. Damage in NFS is better than GT5
GT5 is more realistic, car control is more real while cornering or drifting
