I am torn. Since it's a Japanese sportscar, and I paint all of my Japanese sports cars in Isotope Green with AMG Magno Grau rims, that's how it should be painted. But at the same time, it does look properly good in British Racing Green with Saffron Yellow rims, which are "my" official racing colors.

Everything looks better in Isotope Green.

I persist with my Colours of the Month. This month includes easter, so cars need painting so the Easter Bunny would feel comfortable in them.

Purple for the RX-7 and pink for the R33, and very yellow wheels for both.

Strongly considered doing the R33 in Matt Pink / Purple / Light Green with Matt Yellow wheels for sure.

Isotope Green is from the Easter Bunny's rock and roll days, so... Laughing

You guys that have diven the R33, what's your top speed at start/finish? Just want to get an idea of the straight line speed differential.

I'm usually at about 183mph (~295kph) in the NSX.

Don't remember my trap speed in the R33. TVR is about 300 km/h across the line.

187mph with tweaking of gears/aero.

Also, I think the 100-160 time is more critical that 2mph at the very top end (probably mostly drag slowing you down at that point). There's .4 sec between the RX-7 and R33 between the splits that mark the exit onto the oval from the infield and the next as you exit the banking (184 over start finish).

Cool, neither of those seem as bad as the RX-8/TVR difference in the Tin-Tops.

Nope, and this track is much more power intensive than anything we drove with those, aside from Monza.

This, the last 2ish km/h absolute top speed costs 4ish (generalization) at 1/2 to 2/3 along said straight.

Joined agents room to look - My R33 goes 300km/h across s/f line only if I ring the top of the banking, normally 297. RX7TC about 295. R33 going to be tough to do half-distance on front tires. RX7 tough to drive fast without eating tires at both ends. Tunes (such as they are) for both going in GTData shortly.

i'm not a real good tuner so i look for help in the right direction. appreciate the tunes in gtdata.

i'm still enjoying the rx-7s, and the tc is best still with my all thumb tunes. 184mph at s/f line with best lap this evening a 43.3. need to run more consecutive laps, but 5 laps showing good even tire wear.

Missed earlier practice - putting up a room for us West Coasters... surely there are a couple? at Daytona Road, GTS style.

May not make it back from fEaster dinner in time for the race, but will be looking for practice rooms when I'm on.

Hello.


I haven't ran any laps with the slipstream set to low. Can you guys tell me about its effects compared to it being strong? As far as my gear ratio is concerned, would i have to raise it just a little bit or none?

Most speed gain I've seen in draft has been 20 km/h. I think I was the third car in line.

Good practice room was good. Three 12-lap races for me.

Ah man i missed it.

I'm over on the West Coast. Who else is on the West? That way theirs a more likely hood of us being able to practice together.


For you east Coasters, what time is your normal PS3 playing time?

I'm usually on at night over on the West Coast.
