Which car are you referring to Trans?  I think the Toyota was banned simply because it would like become a spec race since it was far superior to the rest in testing.

It's a prize car you win in Dream Car Championship A-Spec :http://www.mygranturismo.net/car_sheet.php?id=217
Both this and the black version carry the same exact specs as the other.

I agree with you on the Stealth models, however you would have to use the same logic on the TC cars as they are DLC.  All
the cars listed in the 650PP race are available to everyone either in used car, prize car or straight new car selection.

If there is a car you are wanting that is not tradable, please let me know and I will  try get you a ticket to grind for that car.

its not just fast.. its a bitch to drive. the clk was ridiculous and the toyota was way faster than all the other cars. you need to remember we are doing alot of laps with pits. their are alot of factors that play in not just lap times. tire ware will be a factor in class a and maybe even b. sometimes a bit slower car will be the faster car. i think all the cars in the specs are very close to the same overall and we will have some close racing. just keep it clean and smooth.

All the talk about the car lists made me realize that the only car I'm missing from the list was the Lister Storm V12. So, the last couple days I used my old 'trading accounts' to stock up on a few Level 21 tickets to grind. Tonight I come home prepare to grind out some tickets...first one I open is the Lister Storm V12.  ;D

Well guys, not much chance of me being able to race on Sundays. I can clearly see that switching back to Sunday has brought several drivers into (or back into) the series. I'm gonna have to 'take one for the team' and agree that Sunday is the best day for this, for the time being. Hopefully LZR continues to build back up and we can get some race series on an addition evening. Maybe if we get built up enough that we need two rooms, we could split them up and host one group on a different night with a combined championship at the end. We'll have to wait and see. Until then, I'll continue to participate in the practice rooms, and I might be able squeeze in a race or two, hopefully.

come on kody you always bann the best cars if you kept doing i going to race in the league anymore
listen. the car is banned because all the other cars run close to the same time. and the toyota is over 100 hp more ans lighter. also its 3 seconds faster. in the sake of keeping the races fun we will continue to ban cars and all of them will be the best car because thats the point in them being banned. a good driver can drive any car. any car u use now should be a competitive car. we like it to be harder and we like when its bumper to bumper. remember we are running alot of laps. as long as no one car stands out we have done our job.

Mazda Atenza Touring Car is now banned. without it all the cars are super close.

TOYOTA ALTEZZA NOT MAZDA ATENZA
YES MY BAD

I think it's confusing and frustrating to introduce a series and suggest a bunch of cars and then ban them because one is faster than the other.

Instead of banning cars, I think it would be best to adjust as we go. That's how real racing series deal with inequities between manufactures.

Obviously PP is NOT the best way to fine similar cars. HP and KG (weight) are much more reliable variables to find cars that are equitable.

I agree it's no fun to have to ban a car, but lets get real here folks.  There have been cars banned in every series of racing for being far superior. 
2J
Dauer Porsche 962
Brabham BT46B
Lotus 56
Toyota Celica GT-Four
Yunick's 1967 Chevelle
Hendrick Motorsports Chevrolet "T-Rex" Monte Carlo
IMSA Consulier GTP

Every one of these cars fit the regulations for there specific races, but were either banned or crippled to the point of no return.  All of you that were in the classic race know the 2J was banned as well, but there were no complaints then.  Did I want to run that car?  Hell yes I did...you know why?  Cause after testing we all figured out it was the best car and would have become 2 spec races.

It's not the best solution I agree, but can we just move on and hope next series this can be avoided?
Title: Re: (GT5) Series 12 Discussion

I have a solution for the banning. First I'd like to say we didn't have as much time as usual to work out the kinks but soon everything will fall into place. That being said solution one is we need to plan out series 13 during series 12. That will give us more time to plan out and we won't need to ban cars. 2 weight and HP is probably more reliable than just pp. But if we do just weight and pp than it makes it difficult ti get a high HP high weight car in to compete against the low HP low weight cars. That takes a bit of fun out of it. I like the historic style of racing where huge HP and lightweight handling compete in Berry close battles. Mini vs mustang type deal. We will work it out from now on where no cars will be banned they just won't be allowed in the first place... as long as gt5 doesn't f it up again.

I would like to propose a plan for you all to consider.
How about postponing series 12 until you finalize all of your cars.
Instead you could just run a spot race or two using Gt 300 cars running at 300hp and 1100 kg or some other car(s) of your choosing.
It would give you more testing time and will allow you to iron out the kinks and fix up a good thread to run series 12 from.
In my other leagues we had 2-4 people dreaming up and making series for the following series and this worked extremely well as one series would end the other was well polished and ready to go... just my two cents worth.

If you need a good template for the forum you could find some excellent examples on GTP such as these:
1) http://www.gtplanet.net/forum/showthread.php?t=268620
2) http://www.gtplanet.net/forum/showthread.php?p=8094379#post8094379

hope this helps a bit, if you need help just ask

No need to postpone it. The cars are as posted. Everything is finalized. I'm sorry I'm not as experienced at this as racecar and clipp but I am doing my best and I know all of u have alot of questions and ideas but we need to treat it as if nothing has changed. The specs are as poster. Be ready Sunday!!

mmm ok I just have a few more questions for you...
where is the official sign up forum with the official car choices and rules?
are we just signing up without any car choices, or do we need to post our car choices with our Mazda car # and color?
Can we miss races without penalty?
Do we have to notify you about missing a race or 2 or 3 etc...
Can we run any type of tire on our cars?
Do we have to make a mandatory pit stop?
Are we keeping a table of points?
Is there varying laps for different tracks?
who handles the penalties if someone gets punted off the road during a race?

sorry if I sound like a pain in the butt, just want to clarify these first before starting an 8 week series. Thanks..in advance

All the cars laps and other info is in the first post in this thread. The official sighnup is in the series 12 signup thread. All the car chooses will be posted in the signup thread. And for the colors just paint them all the same color if you can but that's no big deal. As for the point deduction. It won't happen. Just keep it clean. Most of you are pretty new so just ask anyone who has been in la and they will answer any questions. I think all the rules and all other information is posted in other threads such as the driving edicuet thread explains what we expect of drivers every race and more. You will see Monday after the race.

Trans, I think we should save those Toyotas for another time. The first two classes your running right now are very close to each other, starting a side series with practically the same car doesn't seem very productive. I'd love to assist getting a side series up and running, I even have a couple really good ideas. We should start a thread to discuss that, though, no need to confuse this thread.

Kody,
How did you do to figure your out the lap totals?
Lap counts seem way too high. 
In the fastest class A car at an average lap time of 1:40 would take 1 hour to race. Is that your intention, not to mention the the time it will take to run the other classes? 
Seems like a HUGE increase in lap totals and thus an even longer night of racing. Our first night took 2 and a half hours.

lap times in a class are under 1 min c class just over a min.

It has been edited with current info. The only thing not current is the series number. If you would like to make a simple series 12 banner I will put it in for you.

We are no longer running separate pages for each series as we have done in the past. It is very time consuming and is much quicker to keep track in a thread as dragon has started doing.

Hey guys something that should be brought up is racing etiquette.  Specifically how it is handled in LZ...
I know everyone is running hard, but PLEASE REMEMBER this is a game and we are all here to have fun.

I know we discussed this back in series 8 or 9, but looks like a refresher might help.  There were some minor issues that happened last night, and while it didn't cause a melt down it did cause tension in both races and I am asking the group as a whole to look at this.

Things that I noticed last night were:

How to deal when you are / or dealing with lap traffic
Leaving and entering the course.  (including pits) properly
Forcing someone off the track
Addressing each other when this happens
Leaving the track to pass

I admit I was guilty of at least one of those last night, my bad kody. I went too wide trying to pass him and gave him a good shove coming back on track. Wasn't at all intentional. I tried to give the position back but he kept slowing down. I think he was just trying to get out of the way so he could conserve his tires.:P
Title: Re: (GT5) Series 12 Discussion
Post by: Mudd on Mon Feb, 18 @ 04:58 PM (pacific)
I wasn't there to be able to comment on the actual circumstances, but I do have some 'clean racing' advice to share. There's a very fine line between hard racing and dirty racing, here's how I define passing: if contact is made durring a pass, I imediatly check my mirror and see how my opponent is reacting. If opponent is banged up but still right on my arse, that's considered 'hard racing'. If my openent looses ANY POSITIONS besides the one I took, then that's 'dirty racing' and I will let off the gas until he retakes my position, regardless of how many other drivers get by.

This is "virtual racing" here, so real world rules are not always the best to follow. My own guidelines may not be the absolute greatest, but they've kept me from being the topic of the 'after-race argument' plenty of times. Cheers!

A new, free update for Gran Turismo 5, version 2.11, is now available to download.

Weighing in at 45MB, its most notable changes sees the restoration of “old” Performance Point values, as they were in version 2.09 of the game (the formula used to calculate the PP number was changed significantly with the release of version 2.10 last month).

Here’s a complete overview of the official change log as published by Polyphony Digital:

The performance point (PP) adjustments that were made in the 2.10 update has been cancelled, and returned to the calculation method in 2.09.
The automatically selected rain tire type has been adjusted. Please note that this may change the normally recommended tire when entering the pit, and the pit timings of opponent cars during races.
Adjusted the autopilot during changing road moisture conditions.
Corrected an issue where the game would not boot after the 2.10 update in some cases.

No problem, like I mentioned as a whole we police ourselves well.  A couple of areas that should be addressed:

1)If you are lap traffic and have or in the process of having the leaders pass (lap you) You should allow that driver to pass you uncontested...to be specific you should completely give way on the racing line to the other driver. (provided this doesn't cause you to further lose position)

2) Re-entry to the track:  we had several areas where as someone would leave the track and try to return causing other racers to slow     down to avoid. If you leave the track it is your responsibility to announce your are returning and make sure there is ample space to not impeded other racers.  Even if this is to the point of giving up more position.  This goes for leaving the actual race track & re-entering from pits.

3) Leaving the course to pass:  pretty easy if you don't have 2 wheels on the course and you attempt a pass...See #2

4) Addressing people while racing about any dispute.  This is pretty simple folks...we are all adults, if someone slighted you wheter intentional or not.  Address the issue immediately BUT POLITELY as you would want.  If it's not resolved at first..Address the group as a whole later for ruling.  Getting snippy at each other to the point of having a racer pull over is not helpful & neither is it enjoyable to listen to back sniping of each other. 

Hope this clarifies...

I was in the room last night, and to be honest both of ya'll were bickering like little girls over pointless shit. Thats the main reason why I left, not the only, but the main. We'll see how thing play out tonight. My advise is that you both take it easy tonight, maybe even race in seperate rooms if we do end up having 2 rooms to keep the tension down till this conflict is handled.

That was some good racing guys. I had a lot of fun my first time out, and look forward to many more. Kody, you did spin me out on the last turn on to the strait away. You came in to hot in to that turn. I didn't want to make a big deal about it, because it just distracts me from driving. Besides, karma was in play, you ran out of gas and I got my place back. I'm laughing as I type this. Not at you, but how things played out. Ok, on to other things. Kody, could you send me a message with the times? I thought it, but I ended up missing the first race. I really was looking forward to that race. I also came in completely cold. No warm up, no nothing. That's my fault, but I really need times so I don't forget again. I'm on a different time scale than the rest of the world. Also, how could I go about obtaining a replay of the races?

Yeah I didn't mean to my car is very fast threw that and you slowed down, I tried to miss yoou but didn't have any track. To bad that ford is so thirsty. I put so much gas in and still didn't make it. Its just been a rough night for me.  To be honest Idk how I made my way back up after crashing so many times. And 2 stops.

I probably should have said something. I'm usually faster through that turn than that, but I had lost my tires and if I would have pushed on through like I usually do... Aparntly I was ment to fail on that turn one way or another. I stayed fairly consistant and had to make 3 stops. I probably could have just done 2, but my times just fell to the wayside. I would have wasted more time overall staying out than pitting and getting new tires. I only had to take on fuel 1 time and it was only 15L. So, I didn't waste  to much time in the pits compared to a lot of peoples 2 stop stratagy while taking fuel both times.

I think a few races new to kiss and make up. I was very upset with how many times I was put off last night, but we did have alot of lag happening. I know I took some of my frustration out on a few drivers, and I shouldn't have but you must understand that some guys are very consistent and if you make one mistake you lose so much time. It's almost impossible to catch up. As for all the drama, we are all grown ass men. If you have a problem with someone that doesn't have anything to do with the race discussion. So please be aware that we have private messages. I am going to watch the replays and check out every incident. That being said to the majority good race. Ill see you all on this week.

I'm not sure I'm reading your post correctly Morbid, but alot of the offending posts were removed and you may not have seen them.

If that's what you are asking.

It was getting out of control with a couple members which is why I am here.

LZ Racing is supposed to be about racing and having a good time with your friends. That has always been our focus.

Nothing personal Morbid, I know its all crazy right now, but I had to moderate some language in your post. We let some stuff slide, but lately the language around here is getting out of hand.

Delta have you tried plugging your PS3 into the cable modem box to see if your problem goes away?
If it does then I would try to plug in and work out the kinks out of your router.
I had to stop using my router altogether to see other people on the track.

Alright, I reset and opened all ports,  set static IP address & still NAT3 right now.  I also bought a new 25' RJ45 and will also try that tonight to see what works best. 

I also have got to ask (besides) Racer who I've never been able to see who...that whomever the host on race night is to also make sure they are running solid connection.  I have been able to run multiple series with LZ with very little problems, however I know the last couple of race nights the connection has been spotty at best for quite a few of us.

I know GT5 runs off PSP instead of server, and cannot be my connection only as many people have seen lg, skipping, crappy mics and more frequent PSN specials.  I'm down for spending some money on a game I enjoy, but this has been more than taxing.

Have you tried rebuilding the database on the ps3 through recovery mode? Sometimes when my ps3 gets to moving slow and having problems, some like the ones you mention Quade, I just rebuild the data base and it loads everything a lot faster. With how big GT5 is, I rebuild at least once a month or as needed. Here is a link explaining everything. http://www.semperthree.com/ps3recoverymenu.html

While it may be superior I prefer console gaming.  It simply has a larger player base to interact and compete with & long term is far more economical.

Don't get me wrong I love console s too. That's the reason I've had 3to ps3 s but I love racing in general and for me the more realistic the better. And iracing is as real as it gets. Its far more serious too. But for everything else I'm a console to the bone.

As far as racing goes you are simply wrong concerning player base. If you do more than 1 thing with your PS3 you might be right economically but I didn't and it wasn't.

I don't doubt in single games that PC may have a larger base, but my point was overall console base (in general is almost 3-1) So if I want to do something besides race it's not even a relevant question.  Ask SOE, they already stated they are 70-30 and they have a couple  little games out there called Everquest and DCUO & Magic on both PC and console.

Not arguing with you, I was just stating the counterpoint that for me as I play multiple games the investment into a gaming PC is not realistic since most of the games I prefer to play are console based.

So I don't have a killing in it. Just the cars and tracks. I'm use to be a 1mother shooter one racer but lately I've branched out to other games. And I'd like to become more of a all around gamer.

I also was against PC gaming until someone beat me into submission. And now I'm glad they did.

Also have been a console gamer my whole life. And I played the original Donkey Kong on a Colecovision back in the day.

I currently own a PS3 and Xbox. I am sure I will end up with a PS4 and a 720.

But for serious gaming, the PC wins hands down. Both PSN and Xbox Live are not very good (and that's being nice).

Someone (who shall remain nameless) wouldn't shut up until I got iRacing. I'm just passing on the favor. 8)
