    Time for some feed back for Series 8 fellas! For this series, we are goin to run 3 classes that we have run this past year to celebrate an awesome year of racing. If you have been here for a couple series, please leave feedback on which classes were your favorites.

    I would like to get the Old Jag back out for the Historic A Class.

    Any B class in which I can run a 458 is good for me! I also really liked the Low Powered Race Cars. That was fun.

    For C class I liked the Ultra Lite. Lotus (Lotii?) and Suzukis!

    This is NOT the schedule. Just my favs. Please leave a post with your input.
    And GT0–We are keeping the Formula GT idea for the next series. That’s gonna be fun!

    Ok Fellas, Here is what I’m thinking. Still a work in progress…….

    C Class–Ultra Lite Fight!! From Series 1
    Hp 197
    Kg 620
    Race Hard Tires
    Open to all Race Cars, Race Mods, and Concepts. No holds barred!

    B Class Spec. We have run many different Specs, thought we should shake it up a little and go with B class.
    ’07 Ferrari 430 Scuderia
    Hp 488 (stock)
    Kg 1350 (stock)
    MUST leave the power and weight alone. No, you cannot add power and limit it down.No, you may not lighten it and add ballast. The power and weight need to remain stock.
    All other tuning allowed, must change the color from its stock red.(So the pics look good!)
    Race Mediums
    Using the same car for the whole series. I don’t want everybody to have to tune a car every week.
    Up around that hp, we need tuning or it will get ugly!

    A Class Historic Race Cars from Series 3
    PP 600
    Race Softs
    ’70 and earlier Race Cars and Race Mods **No 2J. You knew it was coming!**
    Heavy Damage. Nobody wrecks these 20 million dollar beauties!

    So, C class from Series 1, B class to represent spec classes from 4 and 7, and A class from Series 3.
    Little bit of old, little bit different. And we will try to shake up the track selection a little bit this time. We haven’t even started working on that yet, lol.

    Thanks,

    PD tweaked the photo program too,

    I have been working on another project regarding my rig (see below), I bought some stuff during Black Friday and have been piecing this together since then. I originally just bought the panels and one Xbox since already had 2 and started with Forza 4. With the upgrades to GT5 I figured it was time to try it out. Sunday was my first on-line test and it was pretty good.

    Being so busy with work means I am having a great year plus my tax returns.

    If I was Married it would be hard to get away with.

    I wasn’t sure it was going to work online with GT5 at first. Forza it works pretty well but the online racing is glitchy at times.

    The 3 screens don’t make me any faster, but I can race much cleaner in passing situations (or being lapped as it was Sunday), as you now know where everyone is. The replay pics above are the same as the normal replays in the center just a lot more stuff to see on the sides.

    At least I don’t have the Hydraulic stuff to simulate movement on the seat.

    Oh, so you took the easy, cheap route then? 🙂

    Ok

    With the 12 hours of Sebring quickly approaching, check out this awesome video from the races through the 1970s. GT5 needs to incorporate a few of these classic cars. http://www.alms.com/articles/sebring-through-decades-1970s

    Thanks Racecar. I appreciate it. I found online that it’s won after b-spec extreme. Is that correct? I am working my way through that now.

    I didn’t win mine, it was given to me. Other guys say they won it, but I never came across it.

    If you accept Teelo76’s friend request, he will send you one. I have already given him a heads up.
