    Hey guys, to ensure we have different combos for each season, the voting options going forward will be themed. By theme, I mean that all the cars or tracks in the season voting process for a given season will have something in common such as all FF cars or all US cars, or all Nissan cars, etc

    With that said, here are the themes for the next few seasons:
    • Season 3 – American Muscle Championship
    • Season 4 – Front Wheel Drive Championship
    • Season 5 – The Lexus Cup
    • Season 6 – Mid Engine Championship
    • Season 7 – The European Cup
    • Season 8 – 4WD Championship
    • Season 9 – The Honda Cup
    • Season 10 – GT300 Championship
    This will help ensure that we are not racing the same type of car every season and to add some variety to the mix. In addition to all seasons featuring at least 1 City race, some seasons will feature an Oval race in the schedule.

    To help support this effort, I will be hosting testing sessions for the next season on Mondays @ 9:00pm Eastern doing a series of short practice sessions on various tracks that I will use to determine the voting combos. This will also help in producing the upcoming season promo videos. All series drivers are welcome to attend these testing sessions.

    That said, season 3 will feature the following cars:

    [​IMG]

    Monday 7/28 we will be testing the 2010 Chevrolet Camaro SS Touring Car.
    Monday 8/4 we will be testing the 2010 Chevrolet Corvette ZO6 (C6) LM Race Car.
    Monday 8/11 we will be testing the SRT Challenger SRT8 Touring Car.

    Thanks

    I plan to race on July 30th, but there is a chance I may not. I will be returning from a trip to Bermuda on Tuesday late night / early morning Wednesday. So it depends on how tired I am, etc. I'll post an prior to the 8 pm deadline that night.

    You don’t need to test any of those cars Grimm, Parcells is pretty sure they’ll all be awesome. I’ve yet to meet a GT6 “touring” or “race” car trim that didn’t drive fantastic right out of the gate so I’m guessing PD did just as good a job on those crappy American muscle cars? ;)

    Parcells has every intention of running next week and will advise if those circumstances change.

    Im not so much as testing the cars but rather the cars on various tracks and how they race in traffic.

    Im not so much praising all the great touring/race cars in GT6 but rather getting in a jab at American muscle cars...Nailed it!

    Its bad enough we have Parcells doing it, however I blame it on him being Canadian. Yea, I went there.

    DO NOT CHANGE CUSTOM WHEELS!!!!!

    V1.10 has a pretty serious bug right now, Clicking on a custom wheel in the GTAuto tab is causing lockups and corrupted HDDs, game and save data. I would avoid it at all costs until it is fixed.





    EDIT: fixed with hot fix

    the 4wd w/ MR characteristics bug in V1.04 took about 6 hours to patch, so hopefully not long.

    Interesting update. I have a list of all the cars that I could use for this series (44 in total) that were race cars, paintable and change/add a number. Will be interesting to see what I can add to the list.

    Thanks. Going to have to see which of the cars are "Race Cars" vs street cars.

    Sadly, I was only able to add 10 cars to the pool of eligible cars to choose from however there are a couple I'm very interested in doing for a future combo.

    I'll post the complete list of potential cars later this weekend.

    Below is the list of eligible cars that can be used in this series. We will only use race cars that allow driver numbers to be added/modified and that can be painted. If you think there is a car missing from the below list that meet the requirement, please feel free to let me know.​

    Wednesdays race is going to be interesting and patience is going to be key for the first few laps until the field spreads out a bit. This is a race where pit strategy will really come into play and when you decide to pit. I dont see anyone doing a single pit stop as the left front takes a beating so it should be 2 or 3 stops depending on traffic and tire management.
