As some of you may have seen my GT5 magazine covers, I have thought of an idea. I don't know if you guys are willing to do this or have the ambition to do so but I think it would be kind of cool if a group of people here can get together and help make this possible. It probably won't be anything near the number of pages a real magazine would have but it would be "fun" to read.advertisement
All I would probably ask for is of course pictures of the car you have test driven or have drove a lot, and give an opinion about the car as well as detailed specs of the car just like in a real magazine. Also you can give tips and pointers about tracks and car setups too, just provide track pictures! If this ever does happen It can be published freely just about every month depending how much info is received and if I'm not busy with schooling. Reviewing the cars or tips can be done in a funny way or in a serious more professional setup.
I can take all the info (with credit to the reviewer ) and put it together in a pdf format and post them in this thread. Here people can give opinions and talk about peoples articles.
So, as of now I'm still thinking about it and it's just an idea. There has to be a good handful people who are willing to review a car or topic relating to GT5, but doesn't necessarily have to review EVERY car and tip all at once. Perhaps one or a few cars and or tips per person would make it decent.
Here are the covers I made that sparked the idea.
Again I'm just throwing this idea out there, this is just meant to be a fun little thing to do in the spare times that people have if possible. Any suggestions are welcome to be discussed here.

Sounds good as long as you have the time, I've already started my own personal review about the Ford GT40 Mark IV, so I'm willing to help out with the articles etc. if you like.
Perhaps each month there could be a head to head shoot out maybe, I have an idea for one already. This does sound promising though. And nice work on the covers!

It sounds good, but a few people tried to do this with TDU1 a few times without any results (unless starting an argument counts)

Ive taken some pictures of SLS and Mustang on TG Test track (in true TG style ) and some le mann action pictures (cant get a picture of a backfire though ) Which i need to do some photshopping on (and copyrighting lol)
I have a few rally tips and licence tips and some useful track shortcut for when you get fed up of going round corners. (mainly consisting of setting the car up correct)
Im not sure ill have the time to write an actual full review due to work but i can definatly share my info (as long as i get SOME credit )

Thanks for some input guys.
Yes Massidiot, everyone who does their own reviews WILL receive published credit after their reviews.
Keep the input comin' guys. If I can get maybe 5 or 6 reviews/tips together, I can starts off with a small issue for a 1st magazine and see how that goes.
