    I should say that the NSX was slightly faster by about a tenth of a second and the Lexus has been given a slight power boost!

    Thanks, that’s what I was going for. :cheers: I’m not very creative, so I just tried to copy the stock livery as much as I could, without actually copying it, and adding the necessary decals of course. :)

    Yet to decide on the car I'll use, working on something for the Honda and got a backup or two for the Nissan.

    I'd like to join but it's a bad time for me. If you can move it back one hour earlier I'd be able to join but don't change it just for me if that means others can't join.

    Glad to have you all on board!

    Just thought you could try swapping the colours around, see what works. Just a suggestion mind.

    That's all good, just use matching tyre stickers! The placements don't have to be exactly like the guides.

    Getting very interested in a lot of these GTP events as of late, and this ones no exception. Always good to race Super GT machinery, and as a bit of a Honda fan boy it's a good excuse to race the NSX, so count me in :tup:.

    GTP name - Michelin Man
    PSN name - Michelin_man959
    Race number - #87 (Edit)
    Car - NSX
