That should be my next race/series. Did a few first laps and like it. But I definitely need those 4 extra hp, so I sent the car to Laguna Seca for an overnight race. Very Happy

I'll be practising for this tonight if the Daytona 500 gets rained out again (currently scheduled for 7 PM start).

It was on and worth watching. Shocked

PSN down for maintenance 8AM to 10PM eastern Thursday the 1st so fair warning if you do day-early Q runs.

Few short practice races with R722/g44/Wall, good fun. Front brake 1 or 2 with 0 rear is where we all ended up I think. I got one 1'38.9 with 2/0 brakes (not entirely sure how as I haven't checked that race replay) and my best banked Q run lap is 1'39.9 (as I ran that before people showed up with brake balance ideas and NASCAR jokes).

Yea, you should definitely come out Friday WD Smile . These cars on that track are a blast. I was even able to stay with the fast guys (mostly) lol.

VK, that's a good lap man. My best so far was a 1:40.4xx. No Q yet.

Hoping to make this, but a cold is crimping my style for turning any laps. I'll get a car broken in tonight in the hope of running on Friday.

I actually think that little Nissan is a sharp looking car, like a Japanese Fiat 500. Embarassed

I don't mind it, but the consensus of people in practice races suggests there's no paint colour that makes it not ugly. *shrug*

This event is also posted on PSN http://community.us.playstation.com/thread/4673679?tstart=0

Should have said thread instead of post. What I was saying was if I didn't come here last night, I would have come home from work today looking for the Audi TT event and then found out a little late about the change to the Nissan and had a non-broken in car... Wink Can't wait for this event!!! Very Happy

Also, that PSN thread for this race is somewhat misleading. Thread title has the right date but the first post has Saturday the 3rd as the race day.

Below is copied and pasted from that thread...

Nothin' like three nights of practice. Don't remember seeing any 38.7s ever.

I got curious (and have some time on my hands) and checked my splits: 23.726 - 40.802 - 34.587

so I lose it in sector one and two; not really a surprise. In sector one I could/should bring a bit more speed through the left turn before it goes up the hill. Every once in a while I pull it off but not consistently. In sector 2 it's also all about bringing momentum through the right turn before it again goes up the hill. I shift down to 2nd gear for that turn because in 3rd I lose it too often, but I wouldn't be surprised if the aliens stay in 3rd.
