Default GTR driving experience compared to Gran Turismo...

So I finally got to play Gran Turismo 5 and use the GTR in it. I must say that I was a tad disappointed. GT normally is extremely precise on how each car drives on their game and try to get it as close to the real thing as possible. They have a team they said out to every track for 2 months, and they also test drive most of the cars.

With that said, I know the car seems to perform extremely well at all the track in real life so far, so I am wondering why the steering has so much understeer and oversteer in various places on the game. I thought to myself... most of the videos we see have professional drivers, so maybe they make it look really easy. But then I thought... Well, I am a pretty damn good driver (as most of my friends will tell you) so I don't think that is it. Maybe GT actually didn't do such a great job on the GTR this time around.

Man, I can't wait to actually drive one and test it out myself !!

I'm not a fan of GT so need less to say I don't have a real insight with the game and the reason for this is because being a driver, when playing the game I don't think it does a good job in transcending & interpreting the real life sensation of actual driving, which just leaves me frustrated to a point where I just give up & load in 'need for speed' which is how a games console game should be if their attempt to simulate a real car driving experience fails.

IS GT5 really out?!
I saw they had the prolouge out...but what about the actual game?!

MC where did you buy your set up at?!
I plan on making my own setup once we move back to the states, but its too big if I make it now and the mover would not be too happy...your set up looks perfect...
