    That's annoying man, surely it wouldn't be too hard to implement, I mean, we already have it on the PC version.

    Not ideal but also not up to SMS. Microsoft/Sony have limitations on the amount of leaderboards.

    My understanding for the pc side of things is that SMS owns the servers*, and have full control. e.g. Leaderboard per car/track.

    *Wouldn't mind a confirmation on this. Either has to be Steam or SMS.

    hmm. all the cars are there, but mixed, so just a filter, does not change the amount of cars or size.

    Filter has come to mind also. Seems simple but who knows

    One idea that comes to mind is the good old forza stats site: http://forzastats.com/

    Somehow Forza Stats is able to query the leaderboard for the game to display leaderboards onsite and to run their own ranking system. I'm assuming T10 has dedicated servers and allowed this site to select records.

    Would love to have one of the app guys reproduce this for pcars; Query all XB1/Sony/PC boards all into a one-stop shop for pcars leaderboard times.

    Wonder if anyone looked into how forza stats has access to the board?

    There are already some third party leaderboard sites for PC.

    Same from my side, comparing to PC, there is no details.
    - no filter per car
    - no details (which assists used, default/custom setup)
    - ghost only for the top drivers - which mean - only the fastest car in the category

    Besides, changes to physics or track adjustments should cause the LB to be reset. Last one was ages ago.

    And also does not serve for reference many times. I have the impression it's made for people who want to carve their names in the board (nothing against it though), and the top 100 will be on average for the fastest car in the category.

    I remember practicing for an online race of our league, after scrolling down until I find the best time for that particular car, I managed to beat it and thought: OK, that's enough, and in the race the leaders were still 1s faster!

    Also times between PC differ a lot to PS4. Don't know on X-Box.
