    I uploaded the first five races late Sunday night/early Monday morning. The stewards review period is over so there isn't a pressing need to upload the 2nd Lambo race at Silverstone. However, I'm a relative n00b here and could very easily be missing something.

    Long-timers - should we strive for completion (in terms of uploaded replays) or just move on at this point?

    1:28.653 on Indy, need some advice for 27s @K1utch, super delicate throttle control in 2nd gear instead of 3rd? Increase rear brake bias?

    More like, "Teach a man to fish and he'll constantly waste time fishing rather than doing his homework". Or maybe that's just me...

    Anybody wanting to get a handle on the GTR combo or other ones I have a practice room open if you're wanting to learn the tracks.

    Sorry, I'm out on vacation still. If you haven't picked combos yet, I will not choose one this week. (Provided I still have a pick).

    I haven't been keeping up with the thread so I may not be with the news here.

    Sorry!

    So I was watching a Chis Harris video today, and he was talking about how he loves his Citroen 2CV. After watching that, I remembered quite some time ago seeing videos of people racing them. Upon looking those videos up again, I had the bright idea of seeing if it would be possible to do something similar with the 2CV in GT6. Surprisingly after maxing one out with a whopping 60HP, and some suspension and transmission mods, it turns out to be quite a thrilling little car.

    With that being said, would anyone else be interested in racing them with me if I put a little series together? The following video shows some real 2CV racing, and the cars in GT6 aren't much different. Just a little more HP and a 5 speed gearbox, than the real cars. For example, I did a 2:58 on Ascari on comfort medium tires(I don't think I'd go anymore than comfort softs, as they will have more than enough grip).

    This was the only GT-R Nismo model I could find in the dealership, surprisingly, I already had one. Musta bought it when OwensRacing was testing cars for his Thursday series. Hope it's the right one.

    @zero5ive , the numbers I've shown here are after an engine rebuild and oil change and are what the rooms should be set to on Sunday night. No need for anyone to bother scratching your head. I do both, because I can.

    I know most of the banner makers prefer cars in action, on the tracks they will be run at, but, these may be considered my submissions for a banner.

    @zer05ive I also have, using @jobyone 's reported time, a 6 lap race with 6 minutes of qualifying at Apricot Hill in the Toyota.

    If someone who saves the practice racing tonight could post a median time for combo 1 and combo 3 I would appreciate it.

    lap times at Indy are on the 1:30 for earthlings like myself. The snailien type should be doing 1.28s and others from another galaxy perhaps 1.27s. 6 should be right on the 10 minute mark and 7 a little before the 12th.

    Your picture of the Toyo is just awesome! I think that is not a rule but more a preference of Zero if I remember a quote from him a while ago. I think with the map on the side, the photo locations may offer more variety and more of a Studio feel.

    Thanks. The Datsun is a pretty sterile shot, while the Toyota has that blue and orange thing going on. The Datsun was just too dark, for some reason, in that position, in the night version of that locale. Not sure if I've got that one painted in my proper color either.

    Make it smaller. To big to be putting at the end of posts regularly.

    Yes - you can also improve body rigidity if you so desire. Those are your only options (in addition to getting the oil change boost).
