BEYOND THE APEX

A digital version of “Beyond The Apex”, a special booklet that was included in the limited-edition version of Gran Turismo 6. The basics of automotive engineering, physics, mechanics and tuning are introduced with rich visual imagery. Towards the end of the book is a course reference guide for Gran Turismo 6 that also serves as a tour guide of the world.



CAR DATABASE

More than 1200 cars included in Gran Turismo 6 have been organized into a virtual database encyclopedia of cars. Highly-detailed descriptions and specifications of the cars can be viewed together with beautiful imagery. Because they are organized in an easy-to-use list, the cars can be searched or sorted by name, year model, and other specs.

- The content of the app is accurate as of December 2013, and any data about additional content introduced with subsequent updates is not included.
- The power/weight ratio is a figure which divides vehicle weight with maximum output.

IOS only?? I have a SONY Xperia Z tablet (Android BTW). So an official app for a PS4 exclusive title, won't be of use on a Sony tablet? Will this be the same for the promised GPS feature for Track Builder that still isn't released yet? (yes, I know Kaz said he's Beta testing).

WOW!, Bring on Project CARS!

Sean,
I am all signed up and ready to race in the Carrera Cup, except for one thing.  How do I obtain Road America?  I do not have it in AC as one of my tracks.  Where is it?

Great review, you've convinced me to buy one of these for my rigsmile

One question, do you think the mounting brackets could be inverted (and swapped left to right) to mount it from the top?

Hey man. Love your style and input on all your reviews. I have a question: my rig is fo the ps4, it has the thrustmaster t300 Alcántara edition, the fanatec clubsport v3 pedals, the cpx adapter from Basherboards, and I am looking forward to get this fanate shifter. You said that I could connect this shifter directly to the pedals via a USB cable. My question is: is that setup only for pc or will it work with the setup I provided above? 

Thanks very much for your answer. I wouldn't wanna have to conform with the th8 because a misunderstanding of compatibility, and missing out on the fanatec Choice. 

Thanks a bunch!

Okay 20 minutes is too short. Make the races an hour. Can you make it w/o pitting? I don't know, but with or w/o pitting it would be fun.
