    I'm hoping GT7 absolutely blows us all away with just how good it has the potential to be.
    Here's hoping PD are dedicated to exactly that.

    Well they have the Star Trek curse.
    Odd number games are great.
    Even number games are ok.
    So there is great hope.

    Prepare for another dud.
    If GT6 is anything to go by, get ready to shell out top $ for another half complete game.

    Poor form!

    After pre-ordering GT2,3,4,5 & 6, I'll be waiting for the reviews before I even reach for my wallet this time. On top of that, I don't have a PS4 so I'll need an excellent reason to shell out for the whole deal.

    So the V8 Supercar challange at Bathurst is drawing to a close, @Pete05 and I decided to give another week for testing to let some more results come in.

    With that in mind does anyone have a challenge ready to go?
    If not I have a proposal for one.
    A sim-cade challenge.
    Standard aid settings.
    A pure fantasy car, Dodge Tomahawk GTR-S *the middle one* 750 PP
    RH Tires.
    Location. Ia-GT World championship race series, any track.
    Results, total time from one race of the testers choice. DC old 10 point scale.
    Tune can not be changed from track to another other than the final gear to account for top speed differences from the tracks.

    Potentially time consuming and inaccurate testing method, it only takes one inconsiderate move by the AI to put you in the wall and either screw the results or require another 10 minute retest with a car you are now more familiar with than others you tested and got through cleanly on the first run

    That is a possibility yes. But a car tuned well will recover well and not affect time too much.
    Plus in some testing I did in the races the AI was not trying to dive bomb me but they weren't moving out of the way either.

    Go for it sir. Start up a PM with a couple people that have experience with running them if you would like some help/advice on running or polishing ideas.

    good afternoon sirs .
    my idea and prepare a car for regular ex clue: (circuitoEiger Nordwand / reverse) with the same car and the same setup in Ex snow track: (Chamonix Mini / climate variable).
    Suggested cars: Lancia STRATOS '73 / R5 Turbo Rallye '85 / Alpine A110 1600S '72 / 205 Turbo 16 Rally Car '85, all with 450 to 500 PP PP ai those responsible for the event stipulate PP.


    the chosen car would be by vote

    It has been a while from the last Rally X event almost two years I think.
    A Group B event would be a blast.

    Polish up the idea hammer out some cars to square off with which two tracks and propose it.

    If I remember rightly the '85 Group B cars (RS200/S4/205) are all fairly equal once you get used to them, the Audi is in another league though, much faster than the rest

    I'm planning to launch the new tuning contest today so tuners can sink their teeth into it this weekend. The idea is one car, two tracks: but with the option of submitting a tune for each track.

    The car will be premium, tuning options will be wide open: only PP and tyre grade will be set. Something FR or MR and high performance will likely be chosen, around 500pp and on SS tyres.

    Testers may test one or both circuits. If many tuner entries are submitted, I will look at ways to allow testers to test a smaller selection of entries if they prefer.

    Lap times and DC will be scored. DC will be scored out of ten. There can be a podium for each circuit and an overall podium.

    Alright @MrGrado event has come to a close. Thank you sir for the zippy little car.

    @DaBomm4 list says that @DolHaus and @Wydopen ha e events planned and @xande1959 mentioned a Group B event.
    If no one has anything ready to roll I can slap a one car one track together in nothing flat and have it up when ever.

    So with Italian Power and Fame over, does anyone have any event ideas? I've had a couple that I've been sitting on, but I would need a a week or two to actually get them put together.

    I've got some ideas sitting idle cause I just don't have the time needed anymore.
    Work requires that I'm up at 4am some nights, not home until 7:30pm & in bed by 9 :indiff:

    Anyone got any spare time for sale?

    I just celebrated two years of not working a few days ago. Talk about spare time! However money does run out and I'll be back to work pretty soon.

    That's a long time with no employment. How long did you have to work to manage that?

    Very close to 15 years at the same place. I'm 41. Starting hating coworkers, and I was the manager, though I enjoyed the job and work. The boss slacked off big time. It was messing up my mind. Not paid all that great. No kids, mostly no girlfriends, no pets. Living (very) light.

    Just an idea for an event

    Heart and Seoul Challenge

    Hyundai Genesis Coupe 3.8 Track '13
    vs
    Oullim Motors Spirra Prototype '04

    Autumn Ring Reverse

    500PP*
    Sports Medium Tires*
    Power Limiter 85% or higher
    No Front Aero
    No NOS
    No Oil Change/Engine Rebuild/Chassis Reinforcement

    PP and tires might be changed, I haven't done more than a couple laps with each car. Lap Times would be the average of each testers fastest lap, DC would be F1 ranking(1st = 25 points, 2nd = 20, etc.).

    Sounds interesting, two cars which aren't heavily featured in the game. Could provide a few useful tunes with this event.

    Is the Oullim still incredibly hard to drive or did it get fixed in later updates?

    It doesn't seem that bad to me. A little more tail happy than the Genesis, but thats not surprising for a MR car. If anything, I'm probably going to give the Genesis a slight PP bump.
