    that's quite a delay, normally you should be beneath 100. Have you checked your ports yet ?

    ping can be dependent on a few things (your location/servers location and people your laying against , if its under 200 its raceable imho ... (try to always use a wired connection as this helps a little )

    As for the online offline difference be aware that the server may be set up differently to how you have your game options set ; traction control/stability etc etc and these can make a difference as you mentioned
    ... also time of day /track temps ....

    Thanks when I race offline I never use traction control or stability it must just be different track conditions when I'm online,thanks for the info.

    online we set the time of day, normally done by me for GSC and FTRUCK , the past few days i have set the time to 3:30 / 4pm , this may be why the grip level is low, when i would normally put the time's to 1pm-3pm.

    that could also be the answer to lower grip? tbh ping in racing games is fine, anything under 250 is raceable, anything over then your oponnents will see you twitch and dissapear, our servers are located in europe, so depending on your connection type & location the ping will vary :)

    Andi Goodwin thanks for the info also! :)
