    It's mainly just keeping the rear in check.

    That too, when I feel it give I usually try letting off a bit or upshifting like with the GTR. It seems to help but not everyone has the same driving styles and I realize that. Only thing I could suggest is just try not to put yourself in a sticky situation where it would give, I know sometimes you can't help it but that's part of the challenge I suppose.

    I found that going up a gear doesn't really work for me, I just give it some oppo.

    Yea and that's completely fine either way, best strategy is just try to be smooth as possible you might do better than you think.

    Actually was able to practice for about 30mins yesterday. I have seen some grumblings about car/track choices this week.

    Besides not being able to paint the Suzie, these combos are great. Challenging but not impossible and rewarding when you figure it out. Hope to make it tonight and look forward to getting dominated by Floyd again ;) I will try hard for some 2nd place finishes though...

    Important Information Here

    The driver's list has been updated. There has been some movement of drivers. All drivers should take a look at the list and make sure they know where they should be going tonight and get those friend requests taken care of.

    Hosts, you need to get your friend request with me taken care of if you haven't already.

    Reminder to all drivers. The time just before qualifying is NOT the time to try and squeeze in a few practice laps. You should get on track, drive to turn one, and park your car so that everyone in the field can make sure they can see everyone else.

    @GTP_Compton3 @msgt-sd @VrapPlus @GGGMotorsport @Rednose58 @joe_diben @Nail-27

    @TEX36 I made an typo concerning you and you are still in D4. I just updated the list again.

    Well now, everyone that lives in Tennessee are now in the same division.

    The new addition needs to send me an FR on PSN ASAP.

    Who's hosting D3? Spreadsheet says @JoeW with @Wolfsatz as back-up, but JoeW is not listed in D3. I sent FR's to both.
