    Actually I agree with fizzer. driving cars like that on CS at that ring is a great way to learn.

    You're in the right division. It just takes a while to completely get your feet wet and mesh with the group.

    drove so much that the oil change was non existant lol,
    i only noticed the day after that all my cars HP/PP was off, amatuer error hahaha

    It's all about seat time for the first 2-3 weeks, once you're in that D1 mental status, you'll be able to hit D1 race times. At least it took me that long before I was able to keep up.

    You must be the dad who, before punishing your son says "Son, this is going to hurt you more than me". ;)

    I can barely make it around one lap at the ring without pulling my hair out...much less in a car that handles nothing like it does in real life.

    Sweet! Be warned though, we have a strict no-singing policy for D1 race nights ;)

    The GTR looks to be a 6 lap race with 6 minutes of qualifying. Maybe 7 qual minutes if you can't get 3 laps in, in 6 minutes.

    Congratulations to Unleashed159 on the overall night win. Six different drivers stomped the top step and everyone made the podium at least once. In race 4, everyone's fastest lap was within 0.549, fastest to, not the fastest. D2 enjoyed another tight night with a 2 way tie for 2nd and 4th going into the last race and 5 points separating 1st from 5th. The last race saw the overall leader lose 2 positions and 13 points separating 1st to 8th. There was also a 3 way tie for 5th that had to be settled by highest podium finishes, at the gold and silver.

    Thanks to @nmcp1 for the nice layout!

    I really want to echo this. Sunday night is where you can see where you stand in the pecking order. DTC is where you can come have fun and a laugh. We race hard and fast but the vibe is totally different. And there are some real challenges both on the track and off. It forces you to adapt quickly since you do not know what track you will be racing on next. It also give you chance to drive the cars you want.

    Plenty of fast guys have been undone by picking one "dawg" of a car. Give it a try you might really like the change of pace.

    And because you don't know which track will come next, it really evens the playing field.

    What I mean by this is some guys are fast because they practice combos all week. Some guys are naturally fast without practice no matter what car they drive. This series sometimes comes as a shock to "practice fast" guys who are used to being on top :)

    My pick is: Lamborghini Murcielago LP-640-4 Super Veloce '09 at Silverstone Grand Prix.

    The more fun and challenging track would be Mount Panorama.

    If I am not mistaken Mount Panorama still has coding issues causing freezes to games systems. I like the track, but I can't even complete a lap before I freeze.

    Mount Panorama is a no go until we get word that the track will actually allow a race to be completed without major issues.

    never had this problem but i know 2 friends that had this probelm on specific tracks liks mount panorama, spa and sarthe
    they deleted the game data but kept their profile and reinstalled the game with the newest updates
    that fixed it for them altho he says that it can still happen after every new update

    Yea I think you are the reason we tightened the PP range. Now the PP spread is only 5% which does not sound like much but makes a huge difference and means a wide variety of cars can be used.

    Lol. I'm starting to feel like D3 is the "step child". It seems we in D3 are in the minority with this car. Please don't hate on us. I personally like the GT-R. (light hearted tone)
