    Well said SPL, pretty close to the mark IMO.

    For me the whole GT6 franchise just got tired, more so when there became other options i could have a crack at. That said, PCARS has its faults and the one thing that has highlighted no matter what the game, network stability is the backbone of ANY game. The frustration of the GT6 instability was, and still is a major issue, and PCARS it seems isnt immune. The frustration of getting kicked, other drivers getting kicked and lag issues will ruin any game, no matter how good it is in theory.....the frustrations that flow from that, which include waiting for later than scheduled start times, loss of points in league races and contact with other cars through no fault of anyone other than the network are things that test all of our patience more than we would hope.....

    All that said, i still enjoy the PCARS "game" more than GT6, for no other reason than its fresh, new tracks, new cars and a wider variety of race options.....if they could just fix the pit options during a race, the magnet issue and online stability they would have a near perfect game.

    It will be interesting to see how well they port AC to the PS4, i think we are all looking for a game that addresses the issues that seem to hit the PS4 and PS3, namely network stability.....as hard as that must be.

    Unfortunately this is the norm for most public lobbies. I usually qualify top three, only to be punted back to 13th on the first or second corner, then spend the rest of the race fighting my way back and watching them all push each other off the track while I try to avoid the carnage. I'm mostly able to get back to a podium finish, but there's usually at least a couple of capable drivers who'll pull away and are very hard to catch. If it wasn't for these NFS ****heads my online stats would be much better.

    Yeah I'll probably get to that point once I've gotten to know everyone a bit better.

    I haven't been in a public lobby for over 2 years. that's the best thing about ROOZ, there is usually someone online at anytime to race or practice with. Send out loads of friend requests to your team mates and division drivers and anyone else here so when you jump on you can get in on a room.

    Yeah I'll be there, I've been online with Stu the last couple of nights. I haven't been able to get a handle on the car yet, I'm gonna try tweak the controller settings a bit, it's really twitchy for me. Yep, I'm on controller unfortunately, can't afford a wheel at the moment.

    By the way, I just went to buy the Pcars Dash app from the Android Play Store but it's nowhere to be found. Can you guys still see it or has it been pulled or something? It was there yesterday.

    Yeah I'm not sure what's going on. Apps get pulled from the Play Store for various reasons all the time, hopefully it's a temporary thing, I'll check again in the next few days. I tried the developer's "contact us" page but it didn't seem to work.

    I got a reply from the pCars Dash dev, he says it's only temporarily unavailable and that it should be back on the Android Play Store soon (hopefully within the week).

    For those of you who are using the pCars Dash app, is there a way to have it automatically cycle through the different dash screens? I've had a look and I don't think it's possible, I haven't found such a setting anyway, just thought I'd ask in case there's something I'm missing. Thanks.

    You can assign a button on controller/wheel to cycle forward and back. You can also assign a button to go directly to any screen
