It's very very addictive isn't it!
I'm level 30 A-Spec and level 24 B-Spec atm.
Haven't got round to doing Suzuka 1000km, thats next race to do. Vettel challenge is impossible though I'm finding, even on a wheel...looks like it might be getting to level 40 B-Spec for me to get the X1, although that will take a ridiculous length of time.2nd place in the big quizz challenge!

Good to see someone else is also addicted! I love the franchise since I discovered GT3.
I've only had GT5 for about two weeks so I am only on level 23 A-Spec. Haven't tried the B-Spec level yet as I prefer to race not manage. May give B-Spec a go tonight though!
We need to start a GT5 forum race challenge soon!

I played the game to a level 24 and then I deleted it and started all over again. Why? Because I made it all too easy by tuning the cars I had too superior. I couldn't live with that fundamentally wrong approach to game so I started it again. Now I'm level 10 driving non-tuned cars and boy I love the races wwhen they're tight and hard.
I also bring those cars to Monaco and have a lap there at practise mode.
Naturally, I collect all the rallycars from the game to my carage.
The snow- and dirt-tracks are poor but all the other tracks are pretty damn good. I do like the game very much and I have to admit it's very addictive.
Oh and btw, I'm a GT veteran from the game 1.Another Flying Finn

Once I'd done the full A-Spec (minus endurance races) properly I allowed myself to do the birthday exploit so I could have Chaparral 2J and Ferrari 330 P4 etc2nd place in the big quizz challenge!

I think I may have to go your route to get the Toyota 7 Race Car '70 to win it! Thanks for the info there!

Is the B-spec AI driver any less pathetic than in GT4?
It really had no purpose in GT4 besides to finish races more quickly, thanks to the fast forward function.

Maybe Alfa Fan can tell us if the new B-Spec in GT5 is better than it was in GT4.

B-Spec is a completely separate mode this time, it doesn't link up with A-Spec at all, other than same cars can be used in both and credits/cars won are interchangable.
There's no time acceleration and no way of pausing/saving though so it can get quite tedious. Not keen on it overall, but it was a necessary evil for me to get as far through the game as I have.2nd place in the big quizz challenge!

So more of the same which means I will only do the B-Spec to win money and get cars (especially to get past the Historical Cars Challenge in A-Spec).

It seems like you can't quit a race series halfway through to switch off, then start where you left off like you could before, nor can you pause or speed up B-spec races even though they are 2-3 times longer than A-spec races. How do they expect non-geeks who have real lives to deal with to do the endurance races?
As for Monaco, I used a souped up Dodge Challenger converted to race spec to do it in A-Spec and a Toyota Can Am car to do it in B-spec.

Just got GT5 for chrimbo and may be a little hooked again.
I, like AFF, am enjoying the challenge of standard cars. I've reached level 10 so far so I certainly don't have any of the motor's to join in the challenges set here yet.
I never did any B spec on GT4 but if it's the only way I can get the X-1, so be it.
On a side note, is anyone else finding the licence tests ridiculously easy? It used to take me a few go's to get gold. But 90% of the time I can do it first time out of the box.All other opinions are wrong....

Glad to notice there are others who enjoy standard cars I also like those historic vehicles
What comes to those superracecars, not so much....Another Flying Finn
