    Are there better bright greens than Sublime? I think I got that from the Challenger TC Race Car

    I like Verde Mela (solid), there is a nice metallic green, also Verde or Mela in the name, similar hue.

    The new GT Fluorescence from a seasonal is bright as well.

    Sorry for the delay all. I got busy last night and didn't have time to copy the score sheets into the Results Doc. It has been done and the Data Entry Specialists are cleared hot to enter the timing data.

    I like light green colors on sports cars; I collected all I could find when I first got the game.

    Sassy Grass Green is a little darker than Sublime. The LFA has one that's fairly bright (Lime maybe?) and it depends on the specific car as to which one is brighter than the other (some cars display the colors differently). Matte Light Green is close but I think it's a tiny bit darker.

    Fantasiagrun, found on one of the Lupos, is even brighter but it's a bit more yellow than Sublime or Lime, though still in the light green family.

    Also, I'm guessing if there's a GT-Fluorescence that ends up being green it will be brighter than any manufacturer's light green.

    There a few more in that light green family and if desired I can look at my paint chips and report back.

    I'm also color blind, so I'll check the ones you guys listed and see what my eyes find most appealing. It's for the wheels while my car is blue. I think blue and green is a cool combo that stands out but isn't too random. And it doesn't scream out at you.

    I may not have the best color recognition, at least as compared with some female artist friends of mine, but I don't believe the bolded statement above to be true. It most definitely screams - that's the nature of lime green. I think it's a fine color combo for SNAIL but I'd never have lime green wheels on a street car in real life because of it's "screaming" nature. All this said, you should only go with a color combo that appeals to you. It's not my car and it really doesn't matter what I or anyone else thinks of it if you are happy with it.

    But it's not a street car, it's for race cars. Street cars for me just get black rims. Race cars can have more leeway because they try to match a livery or something. But if you're opinion is that of "it screams out at you", then so be it.

    Sorry if I am not posting in the right place, but can someone explain what is the difference about the room categories, like race for fun, race for real and the others?

    And shouldn't Sunday night be set as race for real? I saw other rooms set to race for fun.

    I think it is all for formality purpose? Does it actually change the underlying race settings?? I see online rooms where people set it as race for real and all they do is cursing on the mics all days long. It is more like insulting for real lol.

    That is the Boost setting.

    Boost was likely turned on. If I understand right this gives cars behind a little more oomph so they can close the gap. We don't use that here, hence the notable difference.

    I agree! I've had multiple vision tests in the military and various other activities I've done in my life. Light Green most definitely SCREAMS at you. I think that cars painted that color in real life can be seen from SPACE!

    We ran that something like 4-5 Sundays in a row a few months back. My favorite combo we've done since I joined in Feb-Mar timeframe. I think it's even more fun on the Nordschliefe/24hr.

    Well, all this speak of oval tracks lately has me wanting to commit copious amounts of gratuitous violence! Battlefield 4 here I come!

    Where did you get the metallic green? I might wanna try that and see if it shines in photos well.

    I'm proud to announce the car that we'll be racing at Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps this Sunday.


    GTI.JPG

    Tires: Sports Soft (608 pre-oil change)

    Numbers listed above are after an oil change. Car is paintable. Wheels are not, nor are they replaceable. Also, can't put a number on it :(

    Car is for sale in the Vision Gran Turismo section for 1 million credits. Hopefully, most of you won it for free when it came out.
