    The chicanes are the BoP for hybrids at LeMans. The no-chicane version of LeMans is hugely impactful on car choice.

    I also pursashed two ps4 consoles used both of which the disk drive borken so i "deleted" gt sport then go a pro to redownload (again) its only actually been once i deleted it in a mood, first time my disk drive broke and made me moody as i was first place in front of field full of a plus on nurb 24hr. So most time i delete it were due to second hand ps4s from cash converters who magically denied i got them from there even though i had the reciepts staing the store LOL so i went local trading standards and the store was shut down. It felt very satisfying seeing it been shut down and getting a full refund to be offered a free ps4 from the same store who denied it so i went game and got a new one just to annoy the manager even more. I am now going to a new second hand shop to repeat this so i can get another free ps4 pro so i can "redownload" gt sport for a laugh lol. I read a review if another store some distance from me and magically the same dodgy manager is there hahahahaha. I am also 6ft5 tall, i need downforce lol plus i can fit in most road cars . . . . . Its like the scene from old top gear when clarkson tried to get in a original gt40 lol its just not going to happen lol

    I saw you there- didn't have a bad day myself but you're really on another level. I went up 3 positions, which was awesome because I think I was only DR C in the lobby.

    That RC F is so fast on the straights. I wish I had the Esses down so I felt confident driving it online. I'll have to practice. I really do love that car, in all three group flavors.

    Yeah good speed down the straights, kind of hairy coming down the mountain especially the dipper.

    I used to prefer it when daily races were truly daily as well but my opinion has changed over time.

    It's not only qualification laps and practice, I like that there's time to try out and race in different cars while also using different tyre/fuel strategies which I'm unable to realistically do if the race is over in one day. I think the current way is more rewarding because it allows me to focus more on a race instead of hopping from one daily race to the next and quickly forgetting about them.

    Well that's more or less what I said, I think 4 days would be fine as well. I wouldn't be dead set on 5 days. One week is definitely too long, on the other hand.

    FINALLY got a clean race on Mount Pano, if only because I started 3rd; 1+2 were aliens and 4th+ got into a melee on lap one and were 8 seconds behind by the time we got to the top of the mountain. Nice relaxing Sunday drive. :lol:

    Race A is 370Z one make. Here is my best lap so far of 1:27.984 which is currently ranked second fastest in the world

    I can most likely get a high .6 with a lot of practice but for now this can be a good reference lap. I used a DS4 controller and automatic transmission to complete the lap.

    A few laps in the F-Type for a starter as it was great around Panorama and I gotta say it's just as smooth at Suzuka.. it's a great car! will dip into the 2'07's with more laps for sure :cheers:



    Have fun guys! :tup:

    When I notice a Beetle in the roster I usually take care to avoid it or make sure he follows me to the otherworld after he bumped me off the track. Never cared about the livery then. ;)

    Tokyo 246 would make racing in Tokyo so much better. Time to race!

    Edit: Forgot about the 86.
