PostSubject: Group testing event   Mon 17 Mar 2014, 11:18 pm

I would like to organize a group testing event before we do actual racing.

As soon as I get the car list up, everyone should select both a GT car AND a GTS car to drive. Pick the cars that you would want to actually race with, although this is not an official sign up, you will be able to choose a different car if you would like to for the actual race season. Each car can only be selected twice, once 2 drivers select that car, it will be locked down. There are many cars to choose from.

We'll run 2 heats; one with all GT cars, and one with all GTS cars. There will be no points and it won't count toward the race season championship.

Track is TBD. The date I'm hoping to figure out something soon; if we have to skip a 90's race and do the testing on a Firday, then thats fine with me. Please let me know what days work for everyone.

Driver        GT Car / GTS Car

Stalker - Lambo Superleggera / Boss 302
Max - Caddy CTS / Mustang GT
Oddball - Lambo Gallargdo / Lancer Evo
Roscoe - Caddy CTS / Pontiac Solstice
Hired - Ford GT / Boss 302
Dirty - Nissan GT-R / Scion FR-S
Manuel - Mclaren 12C / Cayman R
Squid - Viper / Challenger
Simcik - Viper / Challenger
Moseavy - Audi R8 / Audi TT
PabloJC81 - Ferrari F430 / Maserati GranSport
ArguelloCR - Ford GT / S2000 or Evora

Cayman is now locked down.

All the builds are now on my storefront with GT cars listed first. In all there are 36 builds so you may have to scroll through a couple pages to find what your looking for.

I will also start gifting out builds to those who have chosen what cars they are testing with. Tuning is open.

With the Dodge boys on board, so are the Dodge cars locked down.

I'm going to set a date for April 4th. Unless I hear otherwise that it needs to be changed, thats what we'll roll with for now.

My cars are ready!

Friday is a good day for a multiclass race? I closed every race on Forza Latino to avoid crash against any other series on Mondays, and we dont have races that day, I think is a better day for this, but is just my opinion.

Fine with me, I just haven't had much feedback so I shot a date out there. We can move to Monday March 31st if that works for everyone.

Roster updated; car changes have been made and reflected above.

Also bumping this up for a reminder that we are running tomorrow night. We'll stick with the 9PM eastern time. Races will only be 25 min. a heat, so just under an hour total race time. Grid will be random, but each class will be grouped together.

Tuning is open and encouraged.

Did anyone watch the PWC at St. Pete this weekend? Pilgrim held the lead through most the race with a huge gap on 2nd, 3rd, and 4th, but Enge in the Lamborghini eventually caught up and took the win. Main reason I bring it up is even in the real series, the cars are all over the place because of car ability and driver ability. I'm expecting the same thing with our series, but the more we race and adjustements are made, the racing will be much tighter and competitive.

That Lambo was the better car hence the pole position but that was the first ever standing start for Enge and he butchered it haha. St Pete is a odd layout so as a few more races get done I feel we shall see more consistent data on whos fast and whos not. Cant wait to run the mystery track tonight!

Enge would've never caught Pilgrim without the full course caution. The Caddy had an 8 second lead with hoards of GTS traffic between, also the two GT Ferrari's & a couple Audi's were in front of the Lambo at the time. If they let the FIA GT3 spec cars run as is, the Cadillac will be done in this series.

I believe Motegi East is Race 1... at least that is what is posted at the moment. Best bet is to set up a general tune with decent balance. Stalker and I spoke about it a lil and I suggested we run a track not on the schedule and that has a balance of speed and handling so as not to favor one car or the other.

Yea I didnt feel the GT class was balanced Max. But they are attempting to do so with GT3 cars with no nannies and the PWC GT cars that run the nannies. Would be best to just adjust to GT3 on ALL cars or just the PWC spec cars. Will be interesting to see how it goes.

Wish you could have made it, thats why I posted the dates so that everyone had a chance to say what works for them.... as for your question; for testing GT and GTS will not be ran at the same time. Heat 1 will be GT's only and Heat 2 will be GTS only. I'm asking everyone to pick both a GT and GTS car for testing only. When its actual sign up, you will pick a GT or a GTS car, not both.

Durring an actual series race, GT and GTS will share the field. In the event we have more than 16 racers, we will split between 2 rooms; I will take the GTS group and someone else will take the GT group.

Regarding the real race at St Pete, my point was that the cars are all over the place and adjustements will be made to bring them closer together. We will experience the same things in our series as well.

Anyone we does not have an open build that they can tune, send me a messege and I'll get you an open build. Send me a friend request if I'm not on your list already so I can get it out to you.

Very close times, nice job on the builds!

My car had some tunning on it, I dont Know if Hired´s and Matt¨s Ford GT were tuned but the diferences were marked.

The Mc Laren braking and handlid looked superior, but Ford GT speed and accel is better. At the end everything compensates into a nice balanced field.

My time in GT is close to 55,8 due that I cut the chicane too much i got that improvement of time on the results.

Overall I'm happy with where the cars are. We kind of already knew which cars would be on the top (and with what driver). But its close and thats all I wanted.

Adjustements will be made as race time closes in, but it shouldn't be anything too drastic. As usual the top guys will probably still be on top, but they will be much closer to the rest of us to give them a good run.

Thanks to everyone who showed up, it helps out a lot.
