    Will be using #48 - Not a Groupee, just don't want to go buy another one, etc.

    I could never afford a crystal ball, but I do have a Magic 8 Ball! I decided to see if it agreed with Oshawa-Joe's crystal ball by asking it if this thread and league will explode once GT6 is released. This answer I got was this:

    But is all seriousness, I'm excited about the prospect of S.N.A.I.L. being here to welcome a new version of Gran Turismo. As you guys probably know, this thread was started more than a year after GT5 launched. And even though we got a late start, we were still able to have a fair amount of success in the GT5 era. Now that we'll be here from the start of GT6, the sky's the limit. :tup:

    But yeah Joe, let's organize some sort of all day testing and practice session on launch day. This is the first time I've ever taken a day off for the launch of a video game, so I'm willing to make the most of it!

    And Exo, I agree that this new game will be a cool experience for all of us. Again, I never been part of a community that so eagerly anticipated a new game together. Looking forward to the GT6 editions of the Pit Board! :)

    I decided to take Monday the 9th off. That gives me the weekend to mess about and see what the game has to offer. Then I will go for it most of Monday? Is anyone else likely to be around Monday?

    Hello everyone. :) Just leaving a comment to let you know that i'm still alive and lurking the forum daily. And with all this GT6 talk, have you guys decided what will be your first car in GT6, now that all cars are available from the start? And for those who pre-ordered, how will you spend your 1M?

    Further, it is going to be interesting to see what new tools PD has given us with GT itself to build and promote the league as well. We could blow up like we did when we got the 5 divisions. It seemed like we jumped from 3 to 5 in like 2 weeks. This may also finally give us a viable solution for racers that wish to participate in SNAIL from other nations in conflicting timezones as well. Damn is it the 6th yet! I'm more excited for this than xmas or thanksgiving...

    Tried the NASCAR at Deep Forest. If SoCal is at 1:11 for a lap ...... I may just watch. Having trouble just getting around the track - no matter what gear I try.

    Try dropping down to first at the two tight turns before the tunnels and then quickly go right back to second. It helps to turn the car and then shifting into second controls the wheelspin. Well that is the theory at least;)

    As will I. Thinking of hitting D2 and actually breaking this one in myself. Just for giggles. At least until SPEC needs the room anyway. Thinking about setting it up so it does 10 lap races on a 15 minute cycle.

    Edit. No longer thinking about it. Doing it. All welcome to drop in whenever you want.

    Hey Tex...

    I didn't say I was turning 1:11's...but I did see a fast lap of 1:11.9 set by someone else.
    Most if my times were in the 1:12 - 1:13 range, when I could keep it on the track.

    Keep trying, it will get easier.

    Ps3 froze. Will start back up after dinner.

    Back up.

    Think my game save might be taking a dump. Booted back in to gt5 and it said it had to load it from the back up save.

    In D1 for about the next hour.

    Managed a 1:11.517 with the NASCAR & a 1:02.533 with the Honda. Let's see how it goes with the pack tomorrow night!

    I should've made it known which NASCAR I'll be using tonight when I made my decision....on Wednesday.

    Guess there will be three 88's on the grid. :lol:

    My #88 Impala has 892HP/637PP with 244 miles on it. Looks like laps should be about 9, as I was able to turn a couple of 1:11s but mostly 12s and 13s.

    Anyone know how many laps at Tsukuba?

    If folks are getting 1:03's, I think Tsukuba is 10 laps.

    Check it out! Thank you fellow S.N.A.I.L.'s and GranStand for this amazing prize! It was easy to put together, stable and absolutely totally adjustable. I hope to measure the position of the seat, wheel and pedals in my '07 WRX (if you didn't know what my username meant now you do) and recreate the dimensions on my new GranStand Wheel Stand.
