I think 85% of the club don't like them tires on the ford. Don't really understand why we cant change it to what it supposed to be its not like where rookies at this. To me that be the smartest thing to do you know that it will probably be one and done for this combo just saying.
Well I guess it is racing hard still not fun lol

Why should it be an exception to the rule? Because people don't like the way it drives? That's why we vote at the end of Sunday night. You'd be letting yourself down if you've practiced it on SS. We're all in the same boat here, so this combo will separate those that are patient and gentle with the car, from those that want to muscle and force a car around the track.

@JLBowler can we get track boundary clarification please? I attached a picture of the rumble strip on the first chicane at Monza. This rumble strip is also in the second chicane (does not apply for Ascari chicane, it has different curbs to these ones). Only half of the rumble strip is painted red and white. Is the green part of the rumble strip considered out of bounds?

The green would be OB. See here. An update to that post to include SSR 5 will be posted before Sunday night racing.

im not sure if it has been discussed in previous posts but im just curious. lets just say when project cars comes out (if it ever really does) and offered similar features such as clubs and customization of care as gt6 and a level playing field. Would SNAIL make the jump to project cars just until GT7 comes out since we play on the old console im just curious to see what people would think

Mind telling the rest of us where to find it?
Ya no problem. I used this one and just left off the stage 2 engine and supercharger. Added some ballast to get it to 51/49 weight dist. And then tuned the power limiter to 600. It was much easier than the ACR I was using but that track is still a handful.

A bone stock ACR can do the trick if you're just looking for a gold time. It took me three or four laps to run a clean one but the one clean lap was good enough.

Perhaps I misunderstood your question, but Project CARS ditched the PS3 a long time ago. That being said, we do plan to have a SNAIL [Project CARS] Series when the game eventually launches. It'll be SNAIL's first series on the PS4, but certainly not our last. When GT7 launches, SNAIL will make the jump to the PS4 along with the Gran Turismo franchise itself (which is already one of the only major gaming franchises, racing or otherwise, that hasn't launched on a next gen platform yet).

However if, after we jump to the PS4 for GT7, we realize that Project CARS is the better option for SNAIL, then I guess it's at least conceivable that we could jump to Project CARS as a whole. But as I've stated before, I'm rooting for GT7 to blow the socks off of Project CARS. 👍

Thanks. I checked there but just wanted to clarify since I don't remember seeing rumble strips only half painted at other courses. It seemed a bit unique to those corners.

You guys are missing the point, it's not complaining about specific combos, it's a fault in the games physics that could be easily addressed.

Just saw this reply, and I want to clarify my mini rant just above that post wasn't directed at you. I understand your point about the flaw in the physics. My reply was directed towards the people thst complain about what gets picked.

@Falango

If nobody ever expressed there opinion and debated topics that are directly related to our common interest, this thread would be far less interesting and the club would be boring as far as our relationships go. Rather than complain about complaints, I personally embrace disagreements. I think it's fantastic that we seem to be able to have them regularly without people getting banned all the time. If I don't like or agree with something, I'm gonna put it out there. That's who I am. If anybody dislikes the fact that I'm open about my opinion, they have the option to block my posts if they find me that irritating, but to complain about others complaints is to commit the same faux pas one is attempting to disgrace. That, my friend, is genuinely absurd. But that's none of my business... :)
