not really - GTR, GTL, and GTR2 have tyre physics holes you could drive a bus though, ie the slip curves for the tyres are copied for longitudinal and latidual (sp?), which doesn't sound much, but it's the sim equivalent of getting the Mona Lisa and putting Dulux paint all over it.

Me? Prefer LFS (www.LiveForSpeed.net), it's been voted the most realistic simulator on the market by the top Sim racing site (BHMS) and is great - try it, theres a demo on the site! Unfortunately, due to it having 3 developers, it doesn't look "wow", but it can look pretty good with some AA/AF and some custom textures!

EDIT - Well, before the people above jump on me, yes i have driven real cars, and karts, and im not saying GTR is too hard, but it just isn't realistic, i bought GTR, haven't re-installed it because it's full of Starforce crap, too in love with LFS to bother with GTR2...

Yea I have LFS too and it is very good. Very realistic except that you get some idiots racing so its hard to find a good server. But its multiplayer is great.

Off-topic: What karts have you raced Jakg?

Demo, or S2? Demo is full of twats tbh, due to the fact in the demo bans are ip based it's easy to circumvent, in S2 it's based on the account you bought it with, so to circumvent it by paying another £24 puts them off wrecking![/quote]Off-topic: What karts have you raced Jakg?[/quote]im too cheap to buy a kart, so i just race crappy rentals, nothing exciting

I've played the demo, and I liked it. It works well with the keyboard if you turn steering help on, as well as acceleration and braking help. I probably would enjoy it a lot more if I had the G25, but come on, $300 is kind of a lot for an accessory. I probably could enjoy driving a $300 car even more. NFS is ridiculously unrealistic. For example you could upshift every 2 seconds, the car gets to accelerate for only ~1 second in every gear, but it still manages to get to 90mph. But it's still fun.

the G25 is the best wheel you can pick up for a "sane" amount of cash (ie anything better will cost the same as an 8800GTX SLi setup!), however there is the "Logitech Momo Racing" and "Logitech Driving Force Pro" (it says its for Playstation - install the logitech drivers and it works on PC, too!) which are almost as good, and are £45!

Back in the days I had a P1 133 and a brand new Vodoo2 12MB (good old days) there was a Grand Tourism simulation game called VIPER RACING. It had great gfx, great tuning possibilities that I haven't seen ever since except for GTR2.
If there are any nostalgic among you, you can find some details on the game here.
