    ABS, is it allowed or not? This isn't a car from SCS last year so I'm not sure whether it's good or not.

    It wasn't allowed at Motegi, I doubt it'll be allowed here.

    As for the car - what tuning is allowed and/or necessary?

    Edit: I'm a tool.

    It was actually a support race car for the 2015 Bathurst 12 hours.
    Because we are treating this like the real life Bathurst 1000 (Which takes about 6 hours) the car will not have any aids available to it, so no, ABS will not be allowed for this event. The only place you run into issues is the downhill, but if you set the bias to lock the front tyres first its controllable and predictable when locked.
    But thanks for pointing out its not covered in the BoP/specs list, working on fixing that.

    @Storm_SP17 - looks like the Venator boys will give you a run for your money this round!

    Never thought I'd get to race endurance at Bathurst again after the cancelled B12H. This is gonna be fun.

    We also didn't think we'd come back to Bathurst but here we are! Just hope it turns out to be as fun as it promises to be.
    Speaking of, we've swapped tyres to RM from RH to make the car more user friendly.

    You and me both man. Pretty sure @Theaffliction had already clocked 1000km before we came to the agreement RM was a less infuriating choice.

    I don't know how popular of an idea this would be, but I would like to suggest the idea of making it a fixed setup race. In my opinion this turns the race from the team that has the fastest tune to the team that can make the fewest mistakes while being good at managing the stock setup. It would probably yield closer racing as well.


    Feel free to disregard this though, it's just a suggestion after all.

    I think you can still have the fastest tune but make a lot of mistakes in the race. Also, having a fixed setup somewhat removes the factor of strategy, which is I think what makes endurance racing fun.

    I'm assuming you mean a more optimised/glorified version of what the default settings are?

    It's an interesting concept to try out.... I would be up for seeing how it went outside of a race, in a lengthy Free Practice Session for example.

    However, I think some drivers and/or teams rely on having their own niche with regards to tuning though, which include perhaps not having a faster tune but one that makes fewer mistakes.... which in turn can lead to closer racing... I reckon a unified tune would actually increase the gaps between drivers, which could then have a knock on effect for one team and not another, leading to the opposite effect to what you intend to create.

    Yeah, I see what both of you are saying. I just thought it would be neat in order to avoid having one team be a second faster than everyone else. Nothing has to change though, I'm not about to argue for anything here, I just wanted to present the idea. Sometimes tuning can be half the fun :)

    I can see same tunes being useful, however because GT6's stock tunes are horrible, how about this?

    I honestly don't think there is a 1 second split in tunes, the fast guys are always fast no matter what. Tuning can definitely improve a car but its more about tuning the car to a driver's needs to give them the confidence and response required to drive consistently and quickly more than there is 1 magic tune that turns anyone into a hero. So have mine, hopefully its of some use to you and any other driver/team who wants it.

    Thanks for sharing your tune, that's a really nice thing to do.

    Whatever happens in the end, we just want the racing to be fun.

    I'd love to see how it works, don't get me wrong! Perhaps in a more relaxed setting though. Cheating would be too tempting in a competitive race, and let's not forget that without some sophisticated in-game way to lock a specific tune on a car via the event settings... its impossible to police, save for noticeable ride height changes.

    Trust me, if we did something like this and after the race you had people whining "heeeey derrrp, you cheeeated!" the obligation to slap a man would be insurmountable.
