This event was a lot of fun for me and very easy compared to the other recent Seasonals. I first tried with the Calibra with no mods, and almost cleared the whole event. Next I tried the 190 E unmoded, and was very surprised that I almost was on the podium for each race. I used the CLK after that, (again unmoded) and won quite easily. Huge bonuses for placing with such low PP cars. Again I was pleasantly surprised by the fun and ease of this event. Now that a say that, I'm sure I'm going to have a very hard time at the next Seasonal.

Used the Audi R8 LMS stock, just changed the oil, and set the brake bias to 2 front and 8 rear. Car handles nicely, and I agree: this was one of the easier seasonals. Had no problem getting gold 1st time on the custom track.

First thanks for the "Kudos" and me to on the hole PP update. I ran the Lexus IS F Race Concept '08 and man was that car fast. Evry time I would hit a corner that car would rocket out really fast. Any way I had the car set at 697hp at 590PP and now with the 2.11 update. I'm down to 570hp at 590PP.   An I see the cars have not been reset, they runas fast as they did before the change.  PD just made us have to work harder. But still I'm able to win all 5 races with my down tuned Lexus.

 

Ok ok I was rong I'm racing wile typing this., the opponent cars seem to be a bit slower or something. Now I did notice that the boost was a bit lower and I was not jetting out of each coner as fast as i did before the update. But still I won all the tracks once again.

 

Oh and here's my settings starting from the top.

Aerodynamics        22  --  40

Weight Adj              0  --  0

Engine                   Stage 3             Power limiter   75.4% at 570 HP PP 590

Intake Sys               N / A

Exhaust                 Titanium

Turbo Kit                High RPM Range Turbo kit (3)

                                                            Top Speed

                                                                222 mph

Transmission     1st G: 4.021            2nd G: 2.742

                          3rd G: 2.017            4th G:  1.531

                          5th G: 1.231            6th G:  1.008

                                                  Final Gear:  2.668

                                                  Top Speed:    180

Drive Train LSD Adj  --     11

                                         42

                                         21

Suspension Fully Adj --             -4       Ride Hight      -4                          1.1      Camber Angel (-)   0.5    

  Note: Softer suspension         14.1   Spring rate   14.5                        0.02          Toe Angel       0.07

                                                    8      Dampers (Ext)  8  

                                                    8      Dampers (Com) 8 

                                                    5      Anti-Roll Bars    6 

Brake Balance controller settings       7  --  8

Tires type set to race standards.  R / H

 

I came up with these settings from a friend "MRPICKELCLH's" car setting. I tweaked his settings from a different car for my cars and it works.

Edit: That all white race sute is the Beginner Helmet with the Alpinestars race suit. For those that don't know how to get your "Beginner helmet back. this is what you need to do. click on your profile photo and then click on the suit case next to the words> Account Info.

Then change in to a "Special Outfit" if you have any. The go back to your Outfit Item Race suit section. Now pick any race suit from this section and you will be givin back you standered beginner race helmet.

I just thought that seeing that I'm in a Concept car I should wear a Test Drivers white suit.

 

You can also do this for the "Beginner" Race Suit, you would have to pick a differen helmet. Now I do know the name of our standered beginner race suit and it is "Trainee".
