    Looks good to me. Sports mediums for the first two cars and sports soft for the last two.

    I may be on later this afternoon, maybe around 3pm EDT (in about 6 hours). <--- @tezgm99 and anyone else

    I always hate picking cars for split PP nights. There are only a handful of 4wd cars that perform like I want. The higher PP range for Tues has none that I like. And picking one that I like for the lower PP range cripples my choice of FF car.

    So I'm screwed by all the 4wd cars I hate. Soooo frustrating. Tested for about 35mins last night and made zero progress.

    Dirt and snow are a no go as they are just not fun to race on when you are behind someone. The long tracks also tend to be avoided although we have never said they can not be chosen. I think they would be better to have only as an occasional first track as i am not sure how fun it would be to run a 350pp car around the Nord;)

    Yea but I would expect to get a bunch of flack about it. Not sure it would make for good racing but might make for a challenging night to win

    but I just realized, it shouldnt really matter what I pick because it wouldn't be mandatory to race there, it has to be chosen so as long as we use fast cars there, we shouldn't hear complaining

    That is correct. Your track choice would be an option for racing, whereas the qualifying track choices are somewhere everyone has to do the first race.
