I added 164 kilos to my car to get it down to 550 PP. I then moved the ballast all the way to the back of the car at the PP jumped to 551. --- "To be great is to be misunderstood." - Ralph Waldo Emerson
I think it's calculated using these factors, in order of most to least impact on PP rating: 1 - Power 2 - Weight 3 - Downforce 4 - Weight distribution, torque differences, drivetrain layout, etc. --- PSN JohnSmallberries (add 4 remote Bspec) - http://www.mygranturismo.net/2193 GT5 minimal buy FAQ: http://www.gamefaqs.com/ps3/941103-gran-turismo-5/faqs/61568
I have six Formula GTs, each of a different color. Each of them has 935 horsepower, with the exception of one that has 929, as I recall. All but the silver one have their default tuning setups. However, only three of them have 910 PP. Naturally, the one that's missing a few horses has slightly lower, like maybe 900 PP. My silver one dropped to 904 PP after I adjusted its tuning settings. As an experiment I took another with 935 HP and 910 PP and lowered its brake bias to something like 5/2 and it dropped PP, but when returning it to 5/5 it never regained PP.
So..., I'm a little confused. I see how the one missing 6 HP has slightly less PP, and I can even see lowering the brake settings dropping a little PP, but I don't see how raising brakes back up don't return the lost PP or why one I never touched doesn't have the same 910 PP as other FGTs with identical stats (the mileage differences between them are only slight). --- http://internetometer.com/give/13484 http://internetometer.com/image/13484.png
Has anyone else noticed this annoying fluctuation on the PP of cars when selecting them for online races?
I have my garage sorted to arrange cars by PP - as this is how i prefer to race online. So, i will see a car relevant to my set limit, say a 633PP Iroc Z Camaro, then i will select that car, go into settings, and see that the diagram shows the PP number as 594. It's super frustrating - as it takes much longer to find a car suitable for a race. Can anyone tell me what's going on here?! This is highly annoying and i hope they patch it.
