DriverSports Tin-Top Touring Challenge | Sunday March 4 | Road Course - Indy - Postponed

Post  Forgetful on Mon Feb 27, 2012 2:21 am


Welcome to the DriverSports Tin-Top Touring Challenge. Race coordinators have identified 8 Premium RWD cars that were able to be built in a way that is verifiable by checking the redline, boost gauge readings and exhaust note and tip. The parts allowed are the best possible combination that will produce the indicated redline with the correct exhaust equipped, which means not only can the race marshals perform post race inspections by reviewing the replay, but so can anyone who has access to the replay file.

This series will be host to a Championship spanning 6 races over the next 6 weeks. Once entered in the series drivers must stay committed to one car. Each driver will be awarded one 'drop' of their lowest score, meaning the championship will be scored by a driver's 5 best finishes. Please note that this series makes use of DLC track content that you must purchase to be able to race on.

Yeah, so with the listed mods my RX-8 is only getting 288 hp fully broken in. Being 73 hp down makes for an interesting challenge and all but what's the deal with that? I mean I can't even find a combination of reversable mods that add up to 361.

Ooo, looks like I made a right mess of that one...

Here's the proper build, save for the carbon driveshaft.

This event will take place April 1, in other words after the end of the previously scheduled races in this series:

If PSN works after the NASCAR race is over I'll put up a lounge for anyone interested in running the cars for fun, either here at RC-I or Cote D'Azur.
