    OK - I will look up my post from last week... or maybe the week before (sigh) on how and when we'll handle things if @goofytyler hasn't announced his selection by later in the day. I know the 'all clear' went out Monday night, and he was PM'd and is aware and has tested stuff last night. I will post in a bit what we'll use, with times, etc.

    He's in Arizona, so I am pretty sure that's Mountain time.

    So last night I practiced with the Ferrari at Monza. I am incredibly slow (fastest I could seem to manage was 2:15.1). Any tips? I feel like I am fine at the two three chicanes and Ascari but I can tell that I'm losing a LOT of speed at Lesmo and Parabolica.

    While I wasn't fast with the Genesis Coupe at this track, I was decent.

    Biggest problem I've had with those 2 is being carefull not to push too hard. Once you lose traction on those corners you lose a lot of speed. My troubles are more with the chicanes. Using a ds3 I get snap over steer and the back end breaks free. Right now I use a steering sensitivity of 6, gonna try something lower.

    I was practicing with you last night, the few times I was behind you it looked like you turned in a bit earlier than i was (I was running mid-1:12's most of the night), with this car i seemed to pick up a good bit of time on both of those corners by turning in later than initially thought, and getting on the gas quickly tends to help keep the car balanced and not so tail happy. On the other hand I have no idea what I am doing. So take this with a grain of salt.

    I think I need to get the entry speed figured out. What gear do you drop down to for them?
    Yeah you were much faster than me, no way I could even come close to keeping up. What gear do you take Lesmo and Parabolica?

    I was in 3rd for both of those corners. Second you would have to shift mid-corner, which threw off the balance (for me)

    What speed do you recommend to be in? I've tried 3rd and 2nd for both of those corners many times but can't seem to figure out a good speed.

    If I remember correctly the prize winner had until 10pm EST. But recommended como;s from anyone who has raced in the division on sunday started stating there recommendations @ 6pm. That way voting was from 10pm est to 12pm EST thursday. That way the combo was picked well in advance to practice. Arizona is currently the same as PST at the moment. Arizona is Standard time.

    if its not on the second post, first page, then chance are good that not all of the combos have been picked, and you only need to go back like 6 posts to see that... Sorry, 8 posts...

    I don't know off the top of my head, but you don't need much braking in the lesmos. The first one especially is just a light drag on the brakes as you turn in nice and smooth - dont be afraid to early apex it a bit as well to help keep the entry smooth. The second one, a smooth entry works as well, but so does a stab at the brakes and a bit of early rotation, but you have to catch it quick or you'll over rotate and scrub speed.

    All the new Ferrari cars in GT6 are fantastic. Every single one drives like a dream. Can't wait to see more picked if the price limit is raised.

    Ladies and Gentleman, people said that you couldn't have fun with a Fiat 500R, but they were wrong! With a little tuning and a lot more power (And help of N2O), this is what you can do! Indianapolis Motor Speedway.jpg
    Indianapolis Motor Speedway_1.jpg

    It even bounces of the ground when you shift! Yes, this thing can pull a wheelie up to 5th gear! Of course, if you do decide to do it for that long, this happens: Indianapolis Motor Speedway_2.jpg

    It starts losing control and pulling to one side.....and this happens: Indianapolis Motor Speedway_3.jpg Indianapolis Motor Speedway_4.jpg
    It's a lot of fun, and because it rolls over so easily (especially in the corners), It's hilarious. :lol:

    For those that want to try it out here is the tune I used: http://www.team-shmo.com/GT6tunes/Fiat/Track/Fiat-500-R-72.php

    And not to advertise, but this guy also has a lot of amazing race and drift tunes if you want to try those as well. :) Hope you enjoyed the photos.

    What is everyone's thoughts on the Dino? I haven't taken it out yet but I want to know if I should expect oversteer and the like. :)

    PDTX, in GT5, I had one set up for drifting. good times! that little car has some spunk to it once it gets a bit of a tune. No Spa worthy, but good fun at say, autumn ring mini.

    So, No one has thrown out ideas for racing to night, so anyone interest in maybe some Kei car racing or some such nonsense?

    Your tunes are also amazing. :tup: haha

    Kei racing would be cool if we had the track creator, we could do some downhill touge, but PD is not playing nice. :/

    I hope that thing handles better in GT6 than it did in GT5. If not I'll definitely be taking a week off.
