    Dont know if this is important or not but I noticed on the results spreadsheet that I am listed as b. murphy and GT_LEGENDS_44. I am planning to change my gt6 user name to LEGENDS_44. FYI Please advise. Thanks again.

    Hey everyone,

    Sorry for the delay in getting everything posted. It's been a crazy week.

    I'll get the winners announced at noon today and the numbers adjusted tonight.

    :cheers:

    So, didn't happen at noon, gonna wing it right now :lol:

    Next race will be one or another of the 125's. I'm off the 31st, so might run an afternoon race then if everyone can make it.

    The prize winners are:

    @carracerptp
    @ATLskydiver
    @screaming chief

    Reminder, the list of available tracks for Karts can be found here, along with a little whining by yours truly.

    No big rush to get the picks done, we're not racing next Tuesday.

    Don't think prize picks are awarded by finishing position in this series.

    See below from the prize section of the first post. I like to include, as much as I can, everyone that participates. Spread the wealth :tup:

    Prizes

    The top racer from each week wins the right to pick, a new track for the next weeks races. Two other racers will be chosen to pick two more tracks with the fourth track being an oval of some sort.

    EDIT: Got me back dragon ;)

    No, it'll be a non-shifter 125. Not sure of the specs on the redbull yet. Will check it out tonight.

    Don't wipe out on the uphill portions- you might not be able to finish the race. Lol.

    At least it is not something like Bathurst. If you could run karts there, I shudder at the slog uphill if you had any issues at the first corner of the hill (corner 2?).

    I just started playing GT6 Christmas and when i was doing the kart races in the seasonals, i noticed that they have more faster acceleration, better handling , control than they were in GT5.

    Yep they are definitely better in GT6 and there is more variety too. The only thing PD needs to do now is allow us to race karts online on the tracks they use in the single player kart events. Brands Hatch, Silverstone, etc.

    You are more than welcome to join at any time. There are no championship points to be had, although we do keep track of results each week.

    Last week we had 2 rooms at or more than 8 drivers in each. Think one of the rooms last week had 14.

    Not bringing this up for this coming Tuesday, but, who wants to consider pulling the Redbull Junior in as a "Kart", tuning prohibited, ring it out on some big tracks?

    Do we do a set rotation as in Kart Jr, 100s, 125s, shifters? If that's how it rolls, then sure, slot it in after shifters.

    I raced last night for the first time in snail I would be interested in racing in the tuesday night league as well. But do you guys do suspension tunes or transmission tunes? Or is tuning prohibited

    @Daniel Lohse, The only thing that can be modified on the karts are the transmission ratios. You should also do an engine rebuild, since you can't change the oil on the karts. No other modifications allowed.

    Also I might as well mention it now, I think the only other special rule is that bump-drafting is not allowed by 1st and 2nd place (so they don't walk away from the rest of the field). It is allowed if you are in any other position.
