I'll build some stuff in that range, get a car chosen. I'll let you know any ringers or duds I stumble upon. Tues. & Wed. evenings I'm gonna be trying to make a couple existing events.. 4 EST should be fine, but too much later gets sketchy for me

Another try was no free car but with 150,000 to start.

Still think it favors the A110 though...

Does seem to bring the 5 Turbo more in line, so it's better.

OK, final specs for Wednesay at 4:00.

 

Production car from before 1990

Engine 2.0 liters or less

125,000 credits to spend.

    (see http://www.mygranturismo.net/carlist.php? for car values on cars you may have in your garage you do not know value of.)

Oil change/rebuilds free but you must use "cost new" value if you rebuild.

Paint, wheels, and "visual only" aero free.

 

Everything else is in the budget.

 

If you like having to choose instead of just throwing everything on the car then backing off to the PP/HP/Weight Limit for an event, try this sometimes.  It is an interresting exercise.

 

Note I have backed off from the original 150,000.   125,000 gives more chance for the "do I want This or That?" decisions which makes this interresting.

 

Also note that if you do not have a car fitting the specs, there is at least the Miata in the NCD as well as several Isuzus in the OCD right now which fit.

 

See some of you tomorrow, I hope.

I'm about to go into my lounge if you (anyone) is interrested in joining this. Specs in message 13, but if you have not built anything yet, we'll work it out, come join anyway.

Thanks all.

About to hop on if anyone is interrested. Probably will be Acura NSX most of the day as both GTSats and audioinstaller are running them.
Coincidence? LOL
