    It would be so awesome if Kaz tweeted a silhoutte picture with Dpis in it. One for Acura, one for Caddy and One for Mazda.

    If it helps at all, Marshall Pruett recorded the C8.R's noise during testing with a mic placed between the exhaust pipes. I've not listened to it myself.

    Well it's definitely no vacuum cleaner, but it doesn't have the "attempting to tear your face off" sound of the C7.R

    https://racer.com/2020/01/22/corvette-c8-r-vs-c7-r-sound-comparison/

    edit: The new engine is DOHC with a flat-plane crank and much higher rev line. Wonder how much of an effect that change had on the noise compared to just the shift of the engine and rerouting of the exhaust to the rear instead of side exits.

    The Nissan as well even though it's not around any more.

    If he did that though I would run out and buy a PS4 tomorrow! :lol:

    Something funky looking with the nose of the #911. Looks like the livery is peeling off.

    That was not the stop that the 88 Audi wanted at all.

    Was noticing that as well. Livery peeling off is a good call. Someone was going at it with a pen knife, and it looks like exposed carbon now. Wonder what happened.

    Oh my god this is heart-meltingly sweet. Perfect example of how powerful it is to have people you can idolize in motorsports.


    This is the only reason and I refuse to accept any other explanations.

    Having Kobayashi in your car should be considered cheating. :lol:

    Imagine how unfair it would be if Pipo Derani and Kobayashi were both driving the same car. :lol:

    #7 wreck in the bustop with the #55. Both cars continue but the Acura has massive rear damage. Staying green.
    Edit: #7 to the garage.
    Edit: #55 tried to send it up the inside going into the bustop, and hit the Acura, sending the #7 flying into the tire barrier. #55 drive thru penalty for avoidable contact.

    Does Imsa mandate working lights on all times? The #3 Corvette has its right side DRL lightstrip dark.

    Also, BMW's doing well for once. Hopefully it last till the end without hiccups or incidents.

    That was the most GT Sport accurate move I’ve ever seen in real racing

    It’s going to be a beautiful sunset tonight. The conditions look like “no cloud” settings in pCARS2
