the setup seems solid for the most part. my dood was able to keep up with the rest of the field, and even took first place for a lap or so. however, the stress got to him in the end from being in red all the time, and he choked and ended up in 10th place.

Did you set your brake bias to 0/0?  If so, he should do more than just  "keep up with the rest of the field".  He should blow by them when they  brake and your dood doesn't.  Also, check to make sure ASM is turned  off.  That was another reason my dood was running fifth at best for the  early part of the race.  I brought up my driver aid menu in the middle  of the race, turned it off and it was check out time from there.

yea, my brakes are set to 0/0. i didn't even know bspec drivers used assists lol... i'll have to double check that later.

If I recall correctly, they do.  You'll have to bring it up "IN RACE" using the driver's aid menu either on a DFGT or using whatever buttons you've programmed to bring it up while in the middle of the race.

Re: How to OWN NASCAR Series @ Daytona (B-Spec)

I'll have to go try these set ups. Seems my NASCAR drivers don't know how to DRAFT. They wont "get in line" on the ovals and they don't seem to know how to use a slip-stream to pass at Grand valley either. The only time they line up bumper to bumper is when they are entering a corner at 35 mph. Poor, poor morons. Sometimes i wish we could send our B-spec drivers to the Jeff Gordon school in SPECIAL EVENTS. I'd even waive the EXP/credits they might earn. lol

I entered them the moment they were eligible -- so whatever that level is.  (I don't have my PS3 in front of me).

Tha NASCAR race is lvl 22 I believe.

I entered it with my lvl 15, and my lvl 17 driver.

if i wait until my drivers are lvl 22, it wont happen...I would have to hold off and run all the easier/earlier races to gain EXP to get mY B-spec guys up to 22, and that would take an eternity.

besides, their lvl isn't what caused them to NOT win. At least I hope not.

I know you weren't asking me...i was just giving a comparison.

my lvl 15 drivers could not win the Daytona race. In fact, they finished 10th and 12th....because, perhaps...they just don't know what to do yet.

My guys didn't win it initially either -- I tried running it as an "individual" race before I even started the championship...just to see how they would fare in the draft since I knew B-Spec guys liked to overbrake/brake too frequently at Daytona.  But with the settings/trick I used in the original post, my "Bob" blew the field away.  Try it and see if it works for you.

will do, edge(one of the greatest guitarists ever to pal, BTW)

I sit there and watch my "Bob" slam on the brakes at the start/finish line...for no reason.

after banging and bashing against other cars at 212 mph, he is worried about losing control when flying solo in 12th place so he slams on the brakes.

lol

B-spec drivers...sometimes they are the Ayrton Senna's of remote play, sometimes they are just a bunch of dorks.

Yeah, Edge is a beast.  Seen them a few times, but one of my favorites was seeing them in Dublin (twice) in the "circle" on the 360 Tour.  Here's a pic my wife took...

Also saw them in Chicago (as well as Atlanta) during the Vertigo tour.  The wife and I are visible on the DVD a few times.
