Testing showed this car to be not very difficult to manage as soon as you learn to have a throttle foot not made of concrete. Somewhat heavy, very powerful, racing tires and low aero aren't the usual ingredients for an event here but the fun factor this gives is. ABS (and TCS) are allowed for this, even with ABS you will have to adjust brake points lap-to-lap as tires wear.

Car is DLC (you will have to have the racing car pack) and not sendable (you will have to break it in somehow).

Very Happy

My Lounge will be open for quite awhile today. Feel free to wander in for some practice. The fast time shown of 1:37.xxx is NOT mine. LOL

Started out with my own tune. Best I could get was high 1:39's. Tried clacksman's tune and best I could get was high 1:40's .... this is typical of me trying to run someone else's tune. Grabbed some things I liked from clacksman's tune and added them to mine, and best lap moved to low 1:39's. If I have no mishaps cherryin' the tires, I'll easily make the 25laps on one stop. Alittle concerned about the left rear as it was wearing unevenly from the other 3, which were matched. It wont impact my pit strategy but it seemed to be taking a beating more than the other tires.

I expect to be running mid-pack, so i'll be looking for others to have some racing memories with. Smile

Practicing with zombie-Agent, until I have to turn the PS3 into a live-olympic-swimming machine at 2:30.

1 or 2 stops. Just did some back of the envelope numbers from a 13 lap run, and I can do it faster in 1 stop than in 2, if I can keep the wheels going around the track in the correct order.

Results may not be typical.

Don't know why track changes are now kicking people from PSN chats.

Do know why I can't race Sundays - dial-up-tier download speeds. Took a bunch of tests using ISPs own speed widget today, and they were bad enough but this is useless. They getting told tomorrow.

Live Q'ing: Rooster, robiker, timney, Agent

Race results:
robiker --- 42:56.535
Rooster -- +04.235
Timney -- +23.196
AgentWD40 --:--.--

clacksman had interwebs woes again. We waited, but it was not to be .... arrrgghhh.

Didnt crash once in all the practice yesterday .... got to race time, and my crashes racked up as follows.

Qualifying - Lap 2
Race - Lap 9 and Lap 22

I stuck with the 1 stopper and limped around the track till i hit lap 12, and entered pits in 1st. By lap 17 I had 1st again only to be caught and passed by rooster/robiker on fresher tires. Hit the grass on lap 22, spun and hit a wall hard .... race over. The wreck on lap 9 and holding out til lap 12 to pit killed my chances. Lost bouku time on those 3 laps.

Challenging race in a challenging Challenger .... See ya'all next time!
