Easter Eggs and BugsEdit

  • In Gran Turismo 4, there is a bug that exists where one can drive into pit lane from any direction (Even from accidental cuts on the final corner), and the car will reset itself back to 0 MPH at the point of entry. As the car drives into pit lane, it will only drive past at 60 MPH without making a pit stop, as if driving through for a real life style penalty. Because of this, it makes scenarios where a pit stop is needed practically impossible, shunning down any chance one may have had of completing an endurance race on the circuit.
  • As another oversight, other cars do not seem to be affected by tire wear or fuel consumption, continually running at a consistent, steady rate without even pitting in.
