I prefer we all stick with our original colours, but if you want this one time, go ahead.  Just let me know what it is.  TX.

I have 3 of the same car diffrent colors and one maxed out with the specs we gotta run and cant get no where near what you hit or what you guys running that 1:30 at the last race. I had a buddy run with me today hes got a wheel and he  couldnt  hit a time like that.


I spent a lot of time on my car last week for that 1:29.9 i ran in qualifying. There are a lot of factors that go into it though. Are you running TC? If yes, that will slow you down considerably in these cars. Also, i used SRF because i thought everyone else would be using it since it is allowed in this series...(thought that wasn't the case when i signed up). It took a long time to tune out most of the understeer these cars have on entry and corner exit. Once i found a good balance, it was all about learning the track and finding the maximum speed through the corners. I would say i probly put about 100 laps into that car on that track before i got that time down. Maybe more. 

 

On to Fuji. I think my setup transfers over pretty well to this track. I might stiffen the rear a bit and drop a little DF off the rear. I haven't spent any time on the car for sunday yet tho. Still trying to finish my 24HRS of the "Green Hell".

Originally, I was going to only have ABS, and all other options off.  I asked around and felt after getting a few responses, It may not attract enough people.  As it sits now, were just under 10 with one or two missing the first race.  I am all for it down the road, even ABS can be turned off, I've done it all.  So, in the interest of keeping people interested in the series, I allowed SRF and TC. 

 

Maybe in the fall, I will host another series, but I think I may go hardcore on that one.

I'm definately in on the "hardcore" version of any series. I tried staying away from series with SRF on because using it means you need to tune your car in a not ideal manner. If i use SRF on my regular tune, it's terible. i had to tune the car specifically for the assist. It's all good tho, i'll have fun here for a little while. Hopefully i'll make the race this weekend.

Road Course-Twin Ring Motegi has now been added to the roster.  Nurb GP/D has been dropped.  Hopfully, this will give some of you some time to purchase the DLC.  It is the second last race on the list.
