sorry for the delay last night.  will try to not make it a habbit.  Ran late at work.  then had my nightly server issue (disconnected from the server,   if anyone know how i can stop this please let me know :-/ its annoying) 

race was awesome!  the top 3 were all right there.  i messed up in the last kink and lost a good lead.  then did it again on the last lap.   we went 3 wide  into turn 7 on the last lap.  i didnt mean to get into you E but i had a run and apperently Juan had a better run and we were all over one another.   still a great race flag to flag.

only thing i can say is we need to work on getting double file a little bit bettter but good start never the less.   i LOVE the rolling start and how the cars in this series run with one another.


I didn't even realize we were supposed to be side by side on the start.  I just assumed that we were starting single file.  You'll have to let us know who needs to start on the left and right each race too.

 

Also, to anyone on the fence about this series....join!  It's a lot of fun.  Cars are easy to handle, and you get to use cars that you wouldn't normally get to use in other series'

Great Race guys!

 

 

And for reals. i had NO idea we were supposed to be double file. I thought it was single file start.
 I do have to say it was MESSY on that parade lap but with practice we should be good. It works; after about 3 turns we faned out and Ken, and I had to fight through trafffic so i think it was a success.

 

The battle for first was intense.  I do want to apologize for the unusual amount of contact that you guys saaw from me. I wan to chalk it up to 75% of it being from be not racing GT5 in over a week and 25% of it was me not wanting eci walk away with one :smileywink:

 

Gloves are off my friend.

 

 

A few things about these cars,

 

1. A LOT OF FUN.

 

2. Top three  all different cars. No limit had a fast rx7 as well. Great variety right off the back. I wish the pp system worked like that across the baord.

 

3. **bleep** is it easy to drive these things BUT **bleep** IS IT HARD to race. The bumber to bumber, door to door paint rubbing action is REALLY intense. More so than the ff series.

 

I had a question about the Fireblade. Coulod i use that ken?

Its up to us all to spread the word about the fun we're having here. So get out there and do it. I have a few other ppl who might be interested.

 

Anyone heard from pete, i'll ask him to join us. Maybe he will.

im learning right along with everyone else. 

"double up"  is a short track term for double file.  Leader takes what would be the inside line headed for turn one.  2nd goes to the outside line.  1st 3rd 5th 7th would all be on the "inside line" while 2nd 4th 6th 8th would all be on the "outside line"  i think 45 to 50 is a good speed for the parade lap and we will keep that in place.   Basiclly im looking for a rolling double file start like you would have at Daytona, and Indy.  The game does not offer this option on road courses for what ever reason.    im not going to be overly pickey about it unless someone makes a mess of it.   use the lap to warm up the tires.  i was e-braking REALLY hard trying to get some heat in the rear tires for the start.   the new update has REALLY made tire temps important now.

i will look into that car Juan.  ive wanted to run that myself i think it was going to be your Sports car series that ended before i got to try it.

I don't think  I would call it an unusual amount from you at all. 

 

What was that about gloves?

Also last night some talk of a demo derby came up...   this was an idea i had at one time but didnt think anyone would be onboard BUT i would like to announce the following...

Race 11 On January 9th... THE 1st annual DAYTONA FLAG POLE RACE!! 10 Laps*

* Open compitition to ANY 375 PP car! no points,  only prizes... lots of them!! Cars, Helmets, Suits, Parts, Paint for all involved.  We're going to end the season with a BANG!

If you dont know what a FLAGPOLE race is...  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=299UO_z-oZA

the way our season finale flag pole race at daytona will work is instead of using a TIRE for the FLAG POLE we will use  the interloop on the back straight.  again this is NO POINTS  for FUN TO END THE SEASON ONLY.   :-)

This sounds like a blast to me!  Any consideration to maybe turning full damage on?  :-)
