Is that's an actual replay from iRacing?  Very cool.  That looks incredibly real.

whoever made that video claims that the closest match in cars he could make was a 370Z with a Ford Falcon.

Close match in what way? I can't think of many cars that are even more different from each other. Specially considering that GT5 has a Ford Falcon V8 Supercar too.

I was really hoping GT5 would take more from iracing.  They really did alot of stuff right in making that sim.

GT5 is not really a proper SIM. I doubt any GT title ever will be a proper SIM. I think that's why it's so popular. It has some qualities of a SIM, but is easy enough for most people to learn to play and have fun going fast.

Are console graphics ever as good as up to date computer graphics?

GT5 isn't my favorite game because it's the best at anything, it's my favorite because it combines many good things into a racing game that allows for Fun online racing.

Yeah you are right.  The main thing I would have liked to see transfer was the online driver point type stuff.  Positive points for a good clean effort out on the track and negative points for being out of control and making contact, spinning, etc...

Console graphics will never be as good as a nice PC's graphics hardware wise, but software wise it is relative to the developer.  GT5 is the perfect example of that as it has beautiful graphics.

When I play GTR2 or iracing the feel of the game is so much different from gt5. I'll admit I was expecting a lot more. Steering input and the way you can feel your tires is completely different. There are some flaws in iracings safety rating but for the most part it keeps people from driving like an idiot. I only did a three month trial waiting on gt5 and it was great. Iracing is very time consuming and demanding though. Im gonna download the rfactor nascar mod this weekend and check that out. Its supposed to be really good. Hook up with sparky,shotty, or boss if you have a capable pc and want to try it out.

I think I've got a coupon for 3 months of iracing for $10  :)  You are right about time consuming though.  That is probably my biggest gripe with it.  The races are scheduled and sometimes can be distanced quite far apart.  Sometimes I want to just pick up and kill some time, but you can't do that unless you just want to run time trials.  If they were to add a single player component for times like that I would maintain the sub.
