In honor of Sebastion Vettel clinching the F1 driver's title, there's a new Seasonal Race called the Vettel Time Trial. Drive around Suzuka in less than 1:25:00 and you get 5 million credits and the Vettel edition of the Redbull X2010. I think you have a week to do it, though.

I got around in 1:11:something. There's already some jackass down to 1:03...geez!

Hehe, they're making people earn the X2010. Good! Originally I read an update that they were going to give them to anyone who logged in. Seems rather pointless to do that. Get out on the track and earn it, even if the time isn't super hard to beat.

When I logged in I got one. So I don't believe that you have to actually earn one. Unless something changed from last night until now....

It's $5. One has ninety items of "racing gear" to dress your driving avatar in, for $3, and the last includes 100 new colours to paint your cars with, with that pack going for $2.

Because that adds up to be quite a bit for what you're getting, you can save a bit of cash and buy it all for $12.

In car views of standards are disappointing at best. I can't believe it took them almost a year to get the game to were it should have been at launch. Hopefully the dlc will save this game.

I saw Spa in the new intro last night, as well as some more tuned-looking cars, namely the evo x and the new sti. $12.00 is easier to handle than the $65.00 for Forza.

Yeah, d/l'd the new movie this morning. Looks pretty sweet. Can't wait to try Eau Rouge in a NA and see if it'll make it up the hill.

So I am taking a break from the 1k km Suzukaa endurance race right now. I am kinda of cheating using the Redbull x1 but that is because I want to beat the race as fast as possible. But I figured out the gas mileage for shits and giggles because I ran out of gas a lap short on a scheduled pit stop. The damn thing is getting 2.7mpg. That is kinda of sad for the fact that I figured that out and that I can't go more then 20 laps with having to pit for gas.

I think that is about on par with an F1 car.

Ordered a playseat evolution with a shifter mount last night. Shit is about to get all kinds of real up in my house with GT5.


Also 9hr at Tskuba sucks ass. I am not looking forward to the 24hr races.
