1. Buy a shiny new car, do oil change and put the required soft tires ( thats it! nothing else need to be done). Car will now have almost correct HP which will meet the lounge HP limit. you can run a lap or two to gain hp and use limiter to make it exact if you like. Use Engine Limiter to reduce HP if car has more.
2. Only engine limiter and brake balance can be adjusted. Everything else is considered as tuning by GT5
3. Track reset. Quali begins at 8:30 pm. No tuning so check tires = racing soft, check the driving aids and SRF = on and start your laps.
5. Quali ends at 8:55 pm. I will note down the quali order.
Race start procedure
1. Track is reset again, Tire checks done for drivers carrying success penalty.
2. Drivers are lined on on turn 1 as per quali. Race is started immediately after.
Any late comers or anyone coming back into the lounge after disconnect will be tire checked if they are carrying success penalty, Disconnect ( considered as Mechanical failure) and late arrivals will have to start at the back of the grid as part of the Race start procedure.
Congratz! Series winners ken and eci
