Re: Premium FF Racing Series - Forming Now - First come, first serve :-)

This is a good idea. FF was never designed for racing, so this will surely be interesting.

I was acually thinking what an FF race would be like with Formula 1 cars or something. They look like Formula 1 cars, but are FF.

Gojet-64 is now Encvell. (Gojet-64 is now only used for older games and Vita)

Not sure I understand your post Gojet?  FF=Front Engine, Front Wheel Drive.  :-)

Either way, glad to have you on board.

And if anybody has access to gtplanet, I would appreciate it if you could post this over there.  My ISP keeps blocking my activation email, so I can't activate my account.

Be sure to post if you plan to join.  I finally got registered at gtplanet, but my series has to be approved through a moderator first.  Ugh.

Couple of questions and/or suggestions.

Is voice chat working yet in GT5 and if so will you be using it ?

A max of three cars in the series. Does this mean three different makes during the seriesd ?  Curious as to why entrants would not be required to pick a car and stick to it for the series.

How many Q runs will be allowed ?

Forgot one thing so I need to edit.  What is your definition of race modifications ?

I'm interested but my skills are very rusty.

Old age is not for sissies.

Great questions.  Let me answer them for you.

Yes, voice chat does work in GT5.  I will be using it, but some guys don't.  I usually mute my mic during the race, to avoid breaking anyones concentration.

You are welcome to use only 1 car for the entire series if you want.  All 3 of your cars can be the same, or different makes.  Trying to keep it loose for this first series.  If it goes well, I may incorporate a manufacturers competition (like we have in the exotics series) the next time around.

The room will open at 8:30pm EST.  From that time, all the way up until 9:30pm EST is when you can practice/qualify.  The system will be set up to start the fastest car first, and the slowest car last.  This is also the way we do it in the exotics series.

Race Modifications, or RM is when you actually do the RM upgrade on the car.  If you choose a car from the list above (which is required) and do not do the Race Modification, then your car will qualify.

Don't worry about being rusty.  This series is geared towards people of all skill levels.  We're all just here to have fun.
