    Fuji GT in the Aston Martin DB9, to me without doubt the most beautiful car ever designed.

    Two things I really want are unusual cars and lower-powered cars. I get sick of running the same handful of high-power sports cars online, and I'd love the opportunity to have more variety (I don't think PD is ever going to bring back the 500pp races online). The Citroen C4, Lotus Elise, Tuned Cappuccino, Tuned Swift, at around 200hp on N3 tires sound like a blast to me (a momentum race instead of a power race, for once!).

    I agree with the lower powered cars on N tires, sounds fun and challenging.

    A little off topic, but what is the car being driven in Post 1?

    Considering the brand mark on the wheel I'd say one of the Lotuses.

    VW Golf GTI '05
    Events - A7
    Maybe a bit difficult to get 3 clean laps, but could be fun.:sly:

    Have you tried the VW dealership event? With a pp restriction that would be a challenge!!

    I tried the event A7 with the Golf and on the lowest PP.
    Starting as 16 and couldn't catch up with the AI,which is good.:tup:

    Low PP and tuning,nice combination.

    The VW Dealer event on Fuji is a bit harder,
    Always starting mid pack as nr 8.
    A bit to hard I think to keep it touch free,max PP or Min PP,AI will be present most of the times.

    However it is a fun race and would be a great online race,16 VW Golf cars.

    In relation to Week 12.

    I don't know if there is an un-written standard for the WRS but I think that events which have times of 5mins+ is a bit long.

    How about something like,

    800pp
    Fuji GT Hotlap
    Mitsubishi Evo X Tuned

    Quick, powerful and generally enjoyable. Plus you'll have to mix those settings up to get a decent combination of speed and grip for the long straight and the tight turns.

    Great idea, but in hotlapping you cannot do much tuning to the car, can you? :idea:
     
  15. GTP_Mav3r1cK

    PSN:GTP_Mav3r1cK

    That's a good point.

    In that case I would suggest a 2 lap race with pre-defined AI settings. At least that ensures that everyone starts on an equal footing, at least in terms of opposition. Then it comes down to driver tuning and out and out skill on the track.

    Should be a good all round challenge to suit multiple tastes.

    I have actually liked the variable AI option. It allows you to set the AI to suit your own ability. You have to remember that we have drivers of many different ability levels, spread across 5 divisions. What might be a relatively easy AI field for a D1 driver might be impossible for a D5 driver, and vice versa.

    Now, the Tuned EVO X at Max PP sounds fun, but can it even get to 800? From running the World Event 750PP at Daytona last summer, I seem to recall that it could only get to 738, or something like that.

    Yeah that's fair comment, and I appreciate where your coming from. I just tend to think that you can gain a small advantage from knowing how to setup the AI properly. By setting it to a default, everyone uses the same settings and it means that the challenge comes down to the driver to tune and race the car. Obviously we would need to find an AI setting that's suitable for all, but Im confident that this can be achieved.

    In terms of the car if the Evo X Tuned is only capeable of 738 then lets make the PP rating 700 to get some variation in there. It's likely to be a bit dull just maxing the car out and trying to run good laps. Either that or swap it for the Amuse S2000 and go for an 800 or 850pp race :eek: (I think the S2000 makes 850pp ??)

    GTR-Mav,we have done something you describe earlier. http://www.gtplanet.net/forum/showthread.php?t=112462
    Nevertheless Fuji is one of the better tracks together with Highspeedring to use ai so we can tuned cars.

    Free run in online races are also a good option but most of the time PD didn't give a end date of the races so we risk a no run possibility in the middle of a WRS week.


    The WRS can be anything,no written standard at the moment and I hope it stays so.:tup:

    So do I :tup: tho of course there is a written standard about conduct and behaviour that we all adhere to: the GTP OLR rules and guidelines.

    The combos that I personally always like best are the ones where you are allowed to find a car yourself that best fits certain requirements and your driving style.

    Im all for this one. Allowing members to pick and choose between cars to a certain PP level is a always a winner in my book.

    Craig,I tested the dealer event with the TT,

    great race ..if it was a online race,I love the stock PP option though but I fear it is not a WRS race.
    Starting as number 8,the ai is always infront and hardly to get a clean pass.
    Appreciated your effort.:tup:

    Tommy,gave the Amuse also a try in free run,with 816PP :nervous:......and was pleasantly surprised.

    Lots of grip and lots of speed.:D,nice choice.:tup:

    This would be a dream combo for me as the noise out of the mines around that track puts a smile on my face. :D

    I'd like to see an event with a high-powered car on Suzaka East/10 laps. Should make for some interesting races (and sweaty palms ;)).
