    Welcome to "The Lobanaro Lounge".
    We are a group of like minded clean racers who just want a fun night of good race craft and good banter. We are not that serious and not a very politically correct room, so if you don't have a thick skin and can't handle some good natured ribbing, then this might not be the place for you! At the same time, we will not put up with anyone who disrespects another on track, or one who does not follow good race craft protocol. If you would like to join us, post in this thread and tag both myself, Aero, @aerolite and Mike, @Mike Lobban

    When:
    • Monday nights at 7:40 pm EDT.

    What:

    Each week is a clean slate, points will be awarded, but only for bragging rights over the next week.

    Each week we will supply a car for each group (A&B), and the track (or tracks) where we will be racing. (report#2)​

    Tuning - Yes

    Note: Until numbers are back up each week, we will all run in one group. It will be four race night format with some special event nights thrown in.

    Format:
    • Two Groups, A & B, each in a different car, racing in one room.​
    • We will run a 4 race night for two weeks, then a 3 race night on the third week.​
      Week 1- Four races, (approx 20 min's), 2 cars from the same or different class, groups switch cars halfway through night, no pitstops.
      Week 2- Four races, (approx 20 min's), 2 cars from the same or different class, groups switch cars halfway through night, no pitstops.
      Week 3-Three races, (approx 30 min's), with pit stops, 3 different cars, each group drives all three cars.​
    • Repeat the cycle.​
    • On the four race nights, if there is only one layout of the track, we will then race at two different tracks.
      On the three race nights, if there is only one layout, then you can expect weather.
      We will also run special event nights every so often.​
    • Lobby opens and invites go out at approx 7:40pm est.​
    • 7:50 to 8:30 – Qualifying for Race 1 (All Qualy's are set to the next race conditions). During this time drivers can join the room.​
    • Race 1 starts immediately following qualy.​

    Main Settings:
    • Damage – Visual Only​
    • Mech Failures – OFF​
    • Tire Wear – Authentic (can change depending on track and car)​
    • Fuel – OFF​
    • Penalties - Depends on track.​


    On week three, mandatory one pit stop. All cars must start with the weeks announced max litres of fuel, or less if desired. We will be able to tell if anyone has set fuel higher by the extra laps done. Up to you to figure out how much fuel is needed for the rest of the race. Tires should last but there will be some wear, it is up to you if you want to change them or not.

    We will start exactly on time, if you can't make it on time please just wait and join for Race 2.

    Active/Reserve drivers.
    Active drivers have priority to get into the race, up until 8:20 pm on race night.
    Any driver who we consider part time will be on the Reserve list and will not get an invite on race night. You will need to let us know, preferably by 7pm on race night, if you want to join and we will send you an invite. List is in Report #4.

    Major announcement for the Lobanaro Lounge.



    Lobanaro is going on a hiatus for the summer and will reassess things in September. I think Mike and I are just about done with Pcars2. It’s been a good run, but with attendance being as low as it is lately, we both decided it’s not worth the work for 5 or 6 racers. It’s too bad for the group core of guys who are here every week, but, don’t despair, there will still be Monday night racing, just not in PCars....... I think most if not all of us have AC or ACC. I’ll still host a room on Mondays alternating between the 2 games, but just for fun...at least until we see what Pcars3 or God forbid GT7 looks like. For now though, we have to go with the best we got, which is not Pcars anymore.

    Stay tuned to the thread during the hiatus for updates. As mentioned, this is only a break, not the end of the best, (imo) and most fun racing league on PS4.



    As always, your comments and suggestions, (except for Bear....lol) are welcome.

    Active/Reserve drivers.
    We now have the Reserve list, which you will be on if we don't consider you full time. If you are on this list and want to race on any given week, please let us know before 7pm race day, or you will not get an invite.
    Any active driver has preference up until 8:30 pm. A reserve driver who has requested to drive that week will get invite at the regular time and can start like everybody else. But if the room fills up before 8:30 and an active driver is trying to get in, then the reserve driver will have to leave. If there is more than one reserve driver, then the order of preference follows the reserve list below.

    Active drivers.

    So do you guys think PCars 2 is ready for Monday nights? Or do we need to give it a couple weeks for debugging?

    I say we jump in. It took me 20 minutes of getting bumped yesterday but eventually it was ok. I think our group is understanding enough to know we're going to have problems, but I think we should go for it sooner rather than wait.

    Lets find the problems before they find us, that way we can atleast stay away from certain things... certain settings, track car combos... having the competitive licence on.. aha.
    There will be alot of new lobbies being opened and closed so its going to be frustrating.

    The next two Monday nights are going to be test nights, the lobbies seem to have some bugs and we need to figure out whats going on ect. Hopefully SMS gets a patch out soon. I leave for a week Oct 2 so would miss the first race night if we started then. Mike said, "well, we are the bosses so **** those guys, we can start whenever we want", lol!!
    Not sure what the night will entail yet but we will get a few races in.
    After messing around a bit more yesterday I'm definitely liking it more. Found the graphics to be better at some of the tracks and the cars do feel great.

    read this regarding the ranking system.

    ""Number and Letter are not tied together...

    Numbers: It's your Skill Rating - The Faster and the More Races you win the higher the Number will be.
    Letter: It's your Safety Ranking - Going Offtrack / Cut Track / Crashes, playes a role here. U=Unranked and then F,E,D,C,B,A,S. The Higher the more safely you are driving""

    Game plays pretty well on a controller. I had to crank up the steering sensitivity quite a bit as it was initially too numb for my liking, but it got fairly predictable quickly.

    I'd say yes. There will always be other options, but this one will end up a better investment than the first.

    Don't get too excited though. There's been some negative feedback also, most likely teething issues which hopefully would be sorted out later. Negative feedback has been mainly with car handling/stability, configs and force feedback.

    There's no feeling in the wheel when the car is oversteering, that's the biggest problem I have. Other than that the game is pretty awesome, all the new cars added are amazing
