    So these are the last ones. It's sad but not surprising that there isn't anything new or special for the final events.

    Yep, it seems so now. these events are getting almost 8 weeks of playtime.
    I think we'll also see one last lot of TT & DT in two weeks which will also have the same end date as these.

    Thank you sir, for all the hard work and diligence keeping these threads going. It has been a fun ride, and fun to check in even if I rarely posted.
    Sad that PD have us such a lackluster set to finish up with, but they likely think these will be enjoyable.....:irked:
    Not going to spend much time with these :tdown:

    Anyway, your work has been greatly appreciated :tup:

    Yeah, thanks @nowcontrol, I always looked forward to simply reading what events were up.

    I tried this once at 0345 before heading into work in a TS030 against the McLaren. Not too hard. Looking forward to trying other cars, then of course running up against the pretty quick A. David in his TS030. Too bad I don't like the track much, but I'll take it. Reading the comments from the last time thread is pretty fun.

    I also disliked the track for a long time. But it is quite interesting as you can choose many different lines on the corners.
    Thanks to coryclifford the setup for the TS030 is fine, only made some adjustments from the Nur setup.

    Many cars to come for this event.

    And another nice thing: the quick matches are working!

    I can't get Affi David to show up in the TS030. I've tried ten times cycling through, raced one for a quick million, tried again ten times, etc., for almost 2 hours. Various cars.

    Well, this is it, everything has to come to an end.
    I agree with @bjl23, we have to enjoy these while we can.
    Indeed @nowcontrol, thank you so much for such devoted service to the :gtplanet: community.:bowdown:

    I did way more tries to get David in the line up after I posted earlier. I pretty much wasted my night away trying. I think he's not going to show. But believe me, I hope someone gets him so I know he's in there somewhere. I started to think, maybe it has something to do with some sort of programming and luck of the draw, but because this event is running for 47 more days (now 46), that I just haven't gotten the right spin of the wheel yet.

    It reminded me of the Used Car Dealership in GT5, which had certain cars programmed to only show after a certain amount of days elapsed.

    I did 40 more, I counted, and he's still not showed up.

    Might be safe to say he's not here...

    Nice. With a tune on it, it gets to be super fast. A transmission flip helps a lot. Trail brake to make the most out of the battery recharging.

    Didn't tune anything, just jumped in and drove, won by 21 seconds over the Ford GT. Will give it a crack with a tune tomorrow.:tup:

    I did another 20 last night so I would have to say the same. Sad as he would be the only one that would give me a run at Red Bull.

    I did it with Mazda 787B and Ferrari 330 P4 (ferrari fast lap 1:26.627). Tried some audis and nissans before, but without success.

    Edit: One more, now with a Jaaaaaaag (by clarkson). Could be a best time.

    Corvette Z06 LM, 2nd try because my tune can be really fast but can also have attitude if you hit the rumble strips wrong. Was on the GTs bumper too.

    F0235A59-E074-4B15-B942-E910A38000B1.jpeg Real GT3 cars do 1:27 at this track, I found you need to get down to 1:26s to catch the rabbits. A GT500 car does the job nicely, without needing the 2J or TS030.

    My race seems to have mirrored you guys.

    I had the GTR 35 Black race car as the chase, the GT LM-Spec Black and the Citroen GT - the other cars were all road blocks but thankfully really bunched up.

    Used the TS030 like everyone else took a while to get acclimatised to this again.

    Odd car because you have too much power on exit due to the battery so you get oversteer but not enough power on the straights as mine only has 529hp with so much ballast onboard.

    I swear the top three cars have more VMAX speed than me on the main straight.

    I also pulled the final gear down to only 280km/h as you dont need it here.

    Overall another fitting final race - at least it wasnt like Nurburgring Type 5 in the wet or something!

    If your having trouble with over steering out of corners lower the torque and acceleration settings in the LSD, that should help.

    David!!

    Okay, I'm kidding - that's from the last time we did this Seasonal. :O

    Has he really absconded?
    If he does appear for anyone let us know what you did.
    Did you sneeze? Say a magic word? Were you drinking a brewski? Keep a watch on what you are doing. Stay alert at all times for any sort of shenanigans. :sly:

    Yeah, I checked and it brought back a lot of fun memories. I'm going to be sorry when these threads are done. It was a great ride and we had a wonderful group of racers in here; very enjoyable to join in, check the tunes, try out cars that were suggested, and so on.

    :(

    I had a few hiccups with this race, I won with an AUDI R10 TDI against the GT-R R35 Touring, but didnt got a nice time and forgot to take a photo.
    But I got a much better race with the Zytec with stock suspension and a quick adjustment to te gearbox to make it peak at 270 kph
    ZYTEC Z11SN 600pp
    ZYTEC_REDBULL_600pp01.jpg I like this car a lot, It behaves well with my driving style.
    The Garaiya that I tweaked at the Nür event behaves oddly on this track, maybe because is not as bumpy :ouch:
