Re: 2012 SCREAM GT - Dodge Viper ACR-X Cup

Dec 2, 2012

Fun, fun, fun!

 

Awesome end to our season, a really interesting finish! VERY close on fuel, and a couple of errors made for quite the race. Thanks to everyone who came out today; special mention to no_affiliations and Daletona Dave.  We started later than normal, so were behind getting to the afterparty. Still Motegi East was fun, and the extra special race at Motegi Speedway a real laugh.

 

Final series results for the 2012 season:

 

1. exXboxFan - 145 pts.

2. dawson864 - 136 pts.

3. PsychoPhreak - 135 pts.

4. Edhellonde - 123 pts.

5. cr0wlftofdmurder - 115 pts. ( took 1st this race - likely champ but for wonky internet service :_( )

6. Dan_Zitions -94 pts.

7. fijiboi1989 - 63 pts ( dude - how the heck do you get up at 2am your time and still finish so good? Awesome you even came out!)

8. no_affiliations - 47 pts.

9 . SnakeEyes427 - 43 pts.

10. jaejsteele - 33pts ( ran well when you could make it, thanks for coming out )

 

Awesome job to everbody who came out even once. I doubt very much that we will have a 2013 season; but there will be some discussions about it after the New Year. If anyone wants to toss out some ideas; go ahead - let's see what happens.

 

Meantime - enjoy the holiday season; Merry Christmas to all; may your tires always bite!

Hey, just wanted to thank everyone for letting me in on the fun. At least for one day. Smiley Very Happy I just wish I'd got in on it much earlier in the season. Smiley Sad

 

I look forward to a possible future series with a different car. Smiley Wink

Great ending to a fantastic series!  Dropped network connections and DNS's due to vacations and whatnot made for an interesting and unpredictable points race at times.  And the podium finishers were all very close!

 

Hopefully we can reboot this again in the near future with a new vehicle.

I've been working on a plan and I'm between 2 ideas, wanted some input as you'd be the ones driving the cars too!

 

Original idea: Murciélago LP 670-4 SuperVeloce '09.  4WD, fairly large change from the Viper.

 

2nd idea: 1 or both of the C6 RM Corvette's.  First obviously I'd have to see if there was a drastic difference between the two giving one an advantage, but regardless, this would be a much closer handling series to what SCREAM was.

 

So thoughts, preferences, comments?  If we go Lambo's, I've already got the series name planned out, and you'd all get to be honorary Phreaks!

the vettes are not equal from what I remember, and I've heard someone reliable say that the ZR-1 RM was a poor representation of car handling where the z06 RM was much better.  Because they look teh same anyway (more or less) then I suggest sticking to just the z06.

 

I don't care for teh Lambos much...

 

Best Idea I've heard so far is SLS AMG cuz it's one of my favorite cars and is actually IMO kind of close to the configuration of a Viper. (both FR long hooded and by same parent company Diamler-Chrysler).

Think the ZO6 RM is an under-utilized car in game. I've had some fun with it, and might be nice to do a series.

A complex task - we would likely need to use a success weight handicap to keep things even, and I'm sure some cars are better performers than others at the same PP level. Think there was an attempt at a GT Sats that was similar, no?
