This series will consist of ten races, each approximately 40 to 50 minutes long, using the race modded version of the Acura NSX '91. All of the races will be held in my lounge so if you'd like to participate, send a friend request to WAGG__da__DOGG. The start date of this series will be Thursday, March 21 at 9:30 pm est.
Season One Champion: hey6541
RS and RM tires only
Must use 4 RS tires and 4 RM tires. No mixing up the compounds
* Tuning for the car to get up to 355 hp is up to each individual driver. The stock RM version has 294 hp. Engine stages and/or bolt ons are allowed
* For each race everyone must start on RS tires and cannot pit no earlier for RM tires than the end of lap 2. At some point during each race, everyone must pit and switch over to RM tires for at least one full lap. It will be up to each driver when they pit for RM tires and for how long they drive on RM tires. If this rule is not followed by a driver, they will not get any points gained during that race. Qualifying must be done on RS tires.
* Everyone must have a different number for their car, however all drivers can use any color that they choose to. The numbers that each driver chooses is on a first come first serve basis.
All assists off except for ABS
Grip - real
Slipstream - weak

* I reserve the right to switch from very fast tire/fuel to fast if needed to.
*All races will be a minimum of 40 minutes in length and should not be longer than 50 minutes.
*Keep two tires on the track at all times
*If a pass is made while going outside the track boundaries, give that spot back ( if this rule is not followed there will be a loss of any points gained during that race. I will be the sole judge on how many points will be lost )
*Keep contact to a minimum, let faster drivers through when possible
*If there are any on track incidents, let me know by xmb message or a pm on this site, do not call out drivers after the race. I save all replays so I can review a race if necessary.
*Races will be held in my lounge. Races will start at 9:30 pm est and no later than 9:40 pm est. If you know you are going to be late, please message me through the xmb or through a pm here so I know to hold off the race start. I will have the lounge open by 8:30 pm est on race days for one hour of practice and qualifying.

The lounge will be open at 8:30 pm est on race days. The track will free run until 9 pm est. At that point the track will be reset, and each driver will then have 20 minutes to lay down their fastest lap. At 9:20 pm est, qualifying is over and the track will be reset again. At this time I will ask everyone to stay off of the track and I will call out each driver in order of their fastest lap and they will then go onto the track and wait in order on the track until we are all ready to race. At this time do not attempt any more laps because this will only cause confusion.

No worries man, race when you can.
I've updated the driver list with everyone's numbers and colors. If I got any of them wrong or if I forgot to include someone let me know and I'll fix it. If anyone wants to change their number let me know that too and I'll change it.
Series kicks off next Thursday. This coming Tuesday at 7:30 pm est I'll be in the lounge practicing again. Whoever is there at first we'll do some 5 lappers at Trial Mountain and Deep Forest to give me an idea on how many laps those races will have. After that we'll focus on Motegi Speedway, maybe do some longer races with 20 + laps so everyone who's there can get a feel for pitting and such.

If anyones stuck at home, watching it rain here, I'm in wagg's kennel turning some laps. As usual my car will be there, though the drive may be in and out through the day.

Hey ice thanks for signing up, added you to the list.
Face found out that if you crash real hard in a race with this car, even after you pit on light damage you will have a huge dropoff in power and handling. We did some testing tonight and we will be going with no damage for this series. You can see face's thread here to get an understanding of what was happening :
Big ups to face on noticing this before the series started.
Tomorrow night at 7:30 pm est I'll be in my lounge for a couple of hours for more practice at Motegi Speedway. C'mon in and run some laps if you want to.
What we'll do is run some 20 + laps races, practicing with switching to RM tires at any point during the race. It is up to each driver when they pit for the RM tires and for how many laps they run on RM tires but they must run at least one full lap on the RMs during each race of the series or they forfeit any points gained for that race, including the pole position points.
See you guys tomorrow night.
