Re: SUPER GT GT500 Series: Season 2 (Thursday Night Online Series)

Mar 30, 2012

Good racing last night everyone.  Couple of things I want to mention here:

1)  We officially tested the online bug.  15 people in the room, mics off.....No lag and times were consistent!  So, the series will be open to 16 drivers each week.

2)  To answer Gojets question - Last night, the LEAST used manufacturer was Nissan.  This was very surprising because 80% of people last season used Nissan.  The most used was Lexus/Toyota.  A handful of us were using the Honda's.

3)  Kart Space II - Crazy people!  LOL

4)  The Lexus' were doing surprisingly well last night!

Also, can i add that we should lower our aggression just a tad. There was some questionable moves there in the back. (i'm also guilty of a few manuvers my self).

Other than a few jolts here and there the racing was a lot of fun. I found the Lexus to be very enjoyable around the track.

I think a lot of the aggressiveness was due to the fact that it was a public room.  We had several people in there that you could tell were quite inexperienced.  Things will clean up when the season starts.

What's up Speed?  How you been?

@Tacos - These cars are a blast.  I didn't know that you have been driving without a wheel all this time.  Hope to see you in the series.

If anyone is up for some practice later tonight or tomorrow, I may be able to make myself available.

I know I needed to tone down the agreesive driving.  I made some rather large errors out there trying to go through people instead of passing.  By the way, that doesn't work very well.  In fact, I think I did it to Juan once or twice as I ran up on a corner real hot.

ECI and Gojet.  Thanks for the opportunity to borrow a car.  They felt real good and while I didn't run up front on the road course, I was able to compete at Daytona for sure.  I think my road course issue was more driver error than car perfornance. You guys know what you're doing.  Thanks again.

We will be having another practice session this Thursday.  This week it will be held in my private lounge.  The room will be opened up to 16 drivers again.  Hope to see you all there.  Those of us that participated last Thursday had a lot of fun.
