well my assestment is that it takes way too long to set up too much down time and did anyone elses Traction Control default back to 5?  mine did and made it impossible to drive.  I'll give it one more try but the Penilty has to go.  i pushed Pete off the track into a penilty and i got nothing but he got ghosted.

 


Ken, thanks for the feedback.  

 

Set up did  take longer than expected.  Mainly because i didn't have  keyboard and its new procedure for all of us.  Second preview race hardly took 2 mins to set up and every one was ready.  I am also removing the dual HP check, extending Qualifer time to  about 25 mins and  simpler set up steps.   Most importantly variying HP grid works.   Race was started with correct Grid order as per quali despite the Freeze.

 

Your traction control setting ( and everyone else) was not saved because of the room freeze.   No worries for the 1st race onward i will remind everyone to check drving aid during HP checks.  There will be enough time to adjust you hp and driving aids before entering pits.

 

When somebody gets pushed and offender doesn't get penalty while the other car  gets pushed out track get penalty is not acceptable.  GT5 penalty system has its flaws.  Like when car is bumped on sides GT5 penalty doesn't work.  Good point.   Penalty is gone!

 

We had great race. Many close battles between you, eci, pete and wagg while me and  nolimit were fighting for 5th place for many laps.   Made for very interesting race for sure.

 

Congrats on getting pole.  Hope to see you for the 1st race using same supra and  in spa.

Good racing tonight guys.  I made a couple of mistakes and got two penalties which were dumb because I knew I was carrying too much speed into the first chicane lol. I then was able to stay within 10-11 seconds behind eci and pete and then I spun late in the race which put me 20 seconds behind after I recovered.

 

Good setup for a series ice. It'll be fun using different cars each week.

 

Let it be known: IF I ever win a race in this series I choose Super Bees at Laguna Seca, beware. peace


Thanks waggs.  you did well,  podium finish and p2 in quali.   you are very close to winning.   With this variable HP setup i am sure you will win races Robot Happy

Based on preview race observations, following changes are done.  Here is the run down of whats in and whats out.

 

In

 

New much simpler, easy to implement  Tire type success penalty.

Longer Quali time, from 8:30pm to 8:55pm

 

Out

 

Lounge setting - penalty is gone, will be set to off

Time consuming HP checks

 

 

More on tire type success penalty:

 

Top 3 drivers of the previous race will have to start next  race on hards,  run minimum of half race distance on hards.   Pit stop window open after half race distance.  All drivers allowed softs after Half race distance.   Tire penalty is maintained till they finish 4th or less in the next races.   

 

On  finishing 4th or lower penalty driver gain next higher grade tires hard to mediums and mediums to soft.  Penalty Divers recovery back to soft will take minimum two races hard to medium and then medium to soft ( next race) provided they finsh 4th or less in both races.

 

Tire penalty applied only during race.  Qualification  tire choice is open  ( soft tires available to all)

 

I am not putting Winners at major disadvantage, Winner will get pick the car and track for the coming up race ( car and track to be used 2 weeks after  so every one will have plenty fo time prepare and practice.  That is the reason for me picking 1st 3 tracks and cars)  beside the prize and bragging rights :robotlol:

 

Updated and much simpler lounge preparation

 

Lounge preparation


Lounge open 8:00 pm eastern

8:00 pm to 8:30 pm - 30 mins warm up / practice
8:30 pm  - Track reset , Quali begins

8.55 pm - Quali ends and  driver postions noted,   Soon after Track is reset, penalty driver tires checked and all drivers lined up on turn 1 as per Quali order.
There is buffer time in case of disconnect during procedure.  In case disconnect happens after qualification time. penalty drivers tire check is done again and Cars are lined up based on recorded quali time on the first corner.

9:00 pm - Race start


After half race distance pitstop window opens, All drivers are allowed to use Soft tires.

 

(OP updated)

New rule looks good ice. For one thing it'll be a lot easier on you to manage because of people getting booted or leaving would make the hp check a pain every week. The grid lineup works good, as long as people know what's going on before they get into the lounge ( as far as how it works ) . At Spa everyone can use softs right away right? Then the tire difference kicks in at race 2?

Thanks wagg


Thats correct. 1st race at spa everyone will be running softs.  After that eci and ken will mostly likey be starting on hards  Robot LOL

It will be a challenge for the top 3.  Only signed up people will racing and in private lounge, also i will remind everyone about the tires they should be running.  Its fairly simple, just need to make sure everyone starts on right tires then during race there is no tire choice restiction after half distance the pitstop window is open.
