    So if you bought the Super Formula Honda you can’t compete in Race C until you have saved enough to also buy the Toyota?

    Thats why I bought both as soon as they came out. That way it also doesn't matter which the livery is for since I have both.

    SLS is Faster yes. :cheers:

    Race B Sucks!! Penalties are uneven and unpredictable, golly bull crap!! From SR 99 to SR B in two races so far, and the first one I got a White S, so in one race really. I think I’m done with B other than the time trial.

    I bump him slightly and he loses zero time, I get 5s, he hits me into a wall and he only gets 1s even though I lost time and hit a wall.


    For real? This was never a penalty before, you could blow waaaay wide there.


    This one was partially my fault but in reality he should not have been blocking on the apex when he clearly knew he was going way slower. I felt like he deliberately tried to block me here, but somehow I get the only penalty?


    This one was just stupid, I maintained my course the entire time, did not swerve or brake, he hit me and magically loses it and I get a penalty? Seriously?


    Race B sucks! :lol:

    The Porsche is a bit much! I'm a 1.01 and its tricky to be consistent too. Done 20 laps or so. Not sure I can be bothered with it.

    Update: I can't be bothered. Got my first Super Formula car instead!

    Thanks for the heads up :lol:. I think I will be rolling race C this week (even tho I think this will be a wreckfest)! Will try some race A but not really my type of race.

    Just did my first B race. What a :censored: show. So many penalties. There was a ghosted car serving a penalty, and the guy in front of me freaked out and braked way too early. I slammed him right off the track and got an SR down and 4 sec penalty. I'm gonna go with my original plan and use a car that's a bit slower, but has better handling and braking.

    @Pigems on your second video, you had to be already at the rumble strip before the end of it, or it would issue a penalty. Its been like this for around 3 months, if not mistaken

    This Porsche is a real tricky sun ofa gun. After 14 laps i am still trying to get the hang of it, the back end just doesn't want to stay in line. Having lots of fun drifting it though lol best time so far is still over a minute. I think i will be able to tuck into a 59 once i get the car figuerd out. I see 58's on the leaderboard already, i don't understand.

    Sad to see race b is such a mess, i was looking forward to trying that one...

    Soooo, Liveries aren’t interchangeable between the Toyota and Honda SF cars. Are you kidding me? It’s the exact same effin car!! :mad:

    I think you will find that's a common theme. I don't think you can use the same livery between the Gr.3 M6's either. Better than the stupid Mercedes F1 where you can't do *anything* to it :banghead:.

    I did some qualifying laps of the circus. Unfortunately I overdid it and my thumb is too buggered to race. I was closing in on a under 4min lap time. Bit miffed that I can't use *my* racing lines :rolleyes:. Stupid re-spawn :odd:.

    OMG the Super Formula race is a mess. The Le Mans one too. Complete ****show as usual with a bunch of Italians and Spaniards taking out everyone. Pathetic weekly races :(

    3 races and they have all beenn hard on the SR. All I have is the Lexus prototype on my eu account, it feels so slow on the straights. The McLaren hauls ass.

    For me, the results definitely seem better with a more stable car than a top speed car.
    Only 2 Lemans races in and Mclaren F1 guys seem to be the biggest idiots (like the TT guys in Gr.4). They use their speed for bullying, but most that I've seen can't drive them very well. Pretty sure Murph is gonna get reset this week. :lol:

    *Side note; Just noticed that the driving aids are back.

    How hard would it have been to make a SF class for the JP Super Formula cars? Now I have to buy both?

    This is why I bought both SFs as soon as I found out the first SF weekly was one make. It should be both cars like real life. It makes no sense to split them up in an FIA sponsored game.

    Here is a rare thing. I picked up a 3rd place on Race B and did not get a penalty (someone I think jumped one of the chicanes at the end of the race and that person I think was rightly given a penalty. Will need to check the shared replay to make sure.) I started 11th without doing a fast lap

    Autopolis is such a tough track, I’m down to a 27.2 so far with an Optimal of 26.8 but the gains are in the first half of the track and I can’t hold on to them through the rest of it to cash them in yet. :lol:



    Now to go save up some cash on my other account so I can do Race C. :)

    Let's not make sweeping statements about nationalities now.

    The races are always a little messy at the start of the week as everyone gets to grips with the combinations. I did 2 Race B's and it was indeed a mess but it won't be like that all week.

    To repair my SR I did a race C from the back (no qualifying). It was a mixed grid of DR A+ to DR D. Starting at the back was an absolute god send but fun watching the turn 1 carnage :lol:.

    Started 20th, finished 9th in a race I wasn't interested in racing in! An alien started just ahead of me in P19 and finished 2nd.

    Ok, nobody laugh if you see anyone driving a car with miku on the side, that’s probably me lol

    Everyone says Italy is full of dirty drivers.
    They’re actually just super OP
    Seriously, I was in a lobby with two Italian players and they destroyed everyone. I finished 3rd with a 10 second gap to second

    Race A and Race C are destiny to lose DR & SR. No thanks and thank you! I stick Race B this week.

    I'm not really feeling Race B. I ended up with 4 track penalties when I thought I was well within the track limits.

    I raced in the Yank Tank GT and didn't seem to gain an advantage on the straights. For contrast, a 911 was able to keep up with me most of the way.

    2 laps feels too short. 4 would be better, it's over way too quickly for my liking. La Sarthe is definitely suited for longer/endurance-based races.

    Got my victory on Race B with Pug VGT, qualified 1st with 3:58.253 but i'm so bad at handling pressure. Had a terrible pace, even with some of the racers with penalty they keep catching up to me, could have won with a 5 second or more of lead but hey, still a victory!

    While spending all morning trying to convert a second place start into an actual podium finish, I managed to get a clean race bonus despite a half second penalty. I guess I must’ve barely cut the corner at Indianapolis. Not sure.

    Oh crap, now I’m pole....

    No. It's your alt account, bro. Penalties and SR/DR aren't supposed to matter. I briefly lost sight of that when my alt account DR went up to about 35k, and I started to think I need to protect it. At that point, using the alt account wasn't as fun as it used to be. That's why I was trying to reset it, last week (back to worry-free racing) :). I hope you will reconsider. It's a great track. :tup:

    So, now if I'm in a race like the one's you had at La Sarthe, this morning, and people want to be jerks and slam each other around, I'm like "Ok, fine. That's how you want to do it? Let's get it on!" (As I've stated previously, I did not create the account to be a trouble maker, however I will be less patient with rammers and dive bombers).

    And that went terribly... Race B has really been a test of racecraft. Keeping mistake-free has been a problem. The pace seems to be there to run near the front with the McLaren, now I just gotta keep my head screwed on straight. To make matters worse one of my late braking goofs took out a fellow competitor and he exited the room before I could apologize. Sigh, that’s probably my cue to get to work...
