    It just means you can't put an aftermarket turbo on.

    ok, now that really confuses me. thanks :odd:

    low, middle or high is acceptable? then what does 0.8 Boost mean?

    Why does everyone want to answer with only part of the equation :lol: just walk me through it like i'm 5. thanks.

    The boost gauge in the lower right of your screen has 4 lines(plus the 0 and 100 lines), so line 1=20% 2=40% 3=60% 4=80%. When the boost is at it's highest point, the needle will go to 80% boost. If you add an aftermarket turbo, the needle will not peak out at 80%. So it's a way to make sure no one has put a turbo onto their car.

    This is straight from the SPA 24H thread incase you didn't see it.


    [​IMG]

    The Pressure Gauge above is indicating 0.25 Boost.

    If a car's Boost Limit as defined in the Technical Regulations was 0.25, then if the car was exceeding the current level of pressure at steady throttle input, then it would not be compelling with the Technical Regulations.

    So this should read "can't" put an aftermarket turbo on. :dopey:

    If you could reply to me @NOS_PIRELLI id appreciate it. Its a new account. Btw if i need to bring in a couple more drivers I could do that, or work with another team that is currently participating. But we could discuss this once I get a yes or no to participate. Thanks

    Find the first post to this thread, read the REGULATIONS and then click on the ENTRY FORM guys.

    These are team event races FYI, not individual driver races.

    Hey guys I'm back on gtp, I was away for awhile. I just want to confirm that my team (Harsk, TnT2000, JoeTruckV8) are good to go in the SLS AMG GT3 chassis officially?

    Also to other watchers of this series we have 3 drivers now, but we need a 4th driver for then 12/24 hrs races.

    -Thankz'

    Nobody is comfirmed in their cars until BoP is complete. I have a feeling the SLS is a popular car, so have your backup cars ready too.

    Some guys in their FIAGT series including mine used both BMWs GT3's plus the GT 40, Dodge Viper, Chevy Corvette to make a grid of 2 car teams @ 8 chassis to complete a full grid of 16 drivers. Are you guys going the same chassis line up, are just running the new models only?

    The car lineup is in the OP. Your team application should have listed a Second and Third car to race.

    Your team manager should have applied to AJ. If your team is comfirmed, he will start a private conversation with you and your team.

    Yes, I can. I finish the classes up to 1:30 PM GMT, so I have plenty of time to do the application. ;)

    Actually you Tyson and me are already here on this thread, so just add Pedro Martins to The conversation please? I believe the spelling of his name is correct.

    I'll will also add the link for The other series we race which is FIA GTWC. I never raced with you before so I'm not sure if you are GT PRO speed, are GT AM speed? Between these two series especially with this one being super endurance race that should be enough racing to keep us all happy campers!

    By the way: I'm totally happy with you being Team manager,... :tup:

    EVENT UPDATE - 27 OCT

    1 - Entry Status

    - We now have just one space remaining for the N4.

    - BoP for both classes is now being finalised. Once this is process has been completed invitations to attend the Qualifying Practice sessions will be published, which will include car & racing number allocation.


    2 - Supplementary Regulations

    - Sup Regs for both races have now been published, please pay particular attention to N4 starting and restarting grid locations.


    3 - Sporting Regulations

    - The Track Time limit has been raised from 60m to 65m. This is to allow for incidents that may occur during an in-lap, as well as to build in a margin of error for the calculation.

    - After a disconnection Drivers must now wait for a set time before rejoining the track. This is to deter Drivers from attempting to gain an advantage by faking a disconnection after sustaining damage on track.

    I wanted to drive GT3, but since it's the Nord-whatever a GT cup car will be fine. Never been around the Nurburgring at 80% full throttle, lol
