    I imagine this is where I will spend a lot of time, even though the PP limit is set too high for most average FWD cars. I will check back very soon with the times we can race at.:) Come on 147, show me some of that old magic..........

    Edit: Cars run at the same speed as the old Fuji 550 on N3 tyres, amazing. Anyway, I'm glad to report my 147 is back in form :D serving it to some Integras already hah hah.:cheers:

    LOL :tup: Just had another great race Severn cars only two the same (integras), lost to GirlsTeam_Andrea in a Mini :crazy:

    EDIT: Here is a dilemma, i have been racing the Focus on R1's with min weight and reduced power to get the PP's to 550, i have just tried S3's and find that i can get the same lap times in fact one lap was quicker, but here is the problem, on S3's i can use min weight and max power but the PP's will only reach 544 meaning i always start first, is this an unfair advantage?

    What kind of lap times are you getting then? (Or is it in the lap time thread which I haven't checked yet). I was using R3 tyres for my 147 which seemed to be the fastest, but probably thanks to a lowsy power curve, the Focus I imagine would be more flexible. The way I see it, if lap times for you are always the same on S3s as to R1s, you should probably use the R1s. If however S3s are providing a clean cut definite speed advantage then I have no problem with it.:)

    With R1's my fastest lap was a 1 53:235, with S3's it was a 1:54:179, but starting with S3's gives me a big advantage at the start because i always start first, with S3's my finnishing place is always better??

    Then I'd say use R1 tyres please. Making your car slower to get a better grid position is generally not accepted in GTP time slots to my knowledge.

    i've hit a 1.52 in the integra type R, & 1.53 in the focus ST,both with R1 tyres...they seem to be a close battle on the track though. :tup:

    You mean '53 for the Focus?:sly:

    I've done 1'52.5 in the Focus, which my tune for is now released if anyone wants it.

    No probs mate, it was not on purpose so dont worry :tup:
    I see what you mean but those times were my fastest lap times, in overall race times i find that the S3's are quicker and i prefer the feel of the S3's, so do i go back to R1's to please people and go at 550 or race on S3's at 544 and have fun and stil be competitive??

    I know the rules and intentions of GTP but if this scenario crops up what am i to do??

    Yes! Nice side by side, and loved the drag race :tup:

    S3 on the rear without suspension adjustments was very hard... I'm sweating!

    Going again

    Yes, I saw it from behind after a few mistakes. Too bad he disconnected the next race on me when on lap 3 he saw he couldn't get back the 3,5 secs I had on him... did a 1.55 first lap and a 1.52.low on clean air. That's my best with R1 on Front and S3 on Rear.

    I'm off too. Gonna take a peak to choose a RDW to tune and then to sleep.

    Nice racing! I missed this

    i manage a 1.55.2xx on Fuji with the Alfa. Citroen, Focus and Integra are easily 2 seconds faster in hands of a good driver.

    I just love the little alfa :)

    Consistent 1.52 low on race, with mistakes and all. Easy to shave a second off if I can do a clean lap.

    Just had a great race with GirlsTeam_Andrea again, i asked her what tune she was using? she told me she had it from this Forum and it was the Lions Den tune, i just tried this tune and done my quickest lap yet in the Focus a 1:52:976, i cant believe there are guys that are two seconds quicker :ouch:

    Loving all these new events and especially this one (Go Kart-like fun!), but like with any event there are the idiots. So far i've been able to beat them in the corners (despite being smashed into and rammed a lot) but then they catch up on the straights and so the cycle continues.

    A lot seem to be from novice events as their racing line and application of throttle/brakes is terrible.

    Can't wait to try some of the tuner setups, will hopefully be able to leave the clowns standing!

    Seeing a competitor purposefully swing away from your car and then into you to knock you wide of the apex is very frustrating.
