    Just my suggestion, how about Rome or London Reverse for shorter track or Fuji for technical track and the trio 86GT, FR-S and BRZ in stock form with comfort hard tires, just like in that PD demo video of data logger :)

    The modern 86 has already seen its own shootout.

    How about that old Alfa race car with the long name.

    As for tracks Nordy gets my approval.

    My thoughts are if we go with a lower grade of tire then selecting a car that has significant adjustable downforce would be somewhat defeating the purpose. Perhaps a better idea might be to select a car that is considered a real tuning challenge all by itself and see which of the top tuners could make the most of it. Cars like the Ginetta G4 and Ruf Yellowbird come to mind, and I'm sure some others are equally challenging to get both maximum performance and ease/pleasure of driving out of.:crazy::D:gtpflag:

    How about Cizeta V16T on comfort tune ? That would be a real tough one, haven't seen a good tune for it on comfort for the Nordschleife ... the decent time I had was 8:37.xxx on comfort medium, no ABS and stock condition.

    Folks, looking for some help, for the greater good.

    I have recently supplied some Gift Tickets as supplimentary prizes for an event and I've also helped a couple of our members find hard to get hold of cars, via tickets.

    What I'd like to do is acquire a full set of the tickets that I can offer up as prizes for future events and as a repository of potentially rare and untradeable cars for my fellow FITTers.

    I think that the Gift Tickets are a nice prize, on the rare occasions I win something, I'm stumped when asked what car I'd like. I think the random nature of the generate car adds a little something. It is also possible to tailor the different levels to the event that's being run.

    I'll take my request over to the Marketplace, if we can't achieve this between ourselves. Any tickets I recieve from you guys, I will duplicate and send straight back to you.

    Thanks in advance...

    {Cy}

    Below is what I already have:
    • Lvl 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 7, 10, 11, 13, 15, 16, 19, 20
    • NASCAR
    • Rally Base
    • Classic Muscle
    • Modern Muscle
    • Ticket 1000
    Below is what I still need:
    • Lvl 5, 8, 9, 12, 14, 17, 18, 21, 22, 23, 24
    • Historic Rally
    • Rally

    Thank you very much, you're a gentleman. That's a great ticket, some highly prized cars. I'll keep all tickets, so if you're looking for a car that's on that particular one, let me know and I'll dupe it back to you :tup:

    Just to remind everyone, these tickets will be available all the time, so if we're heading into an event and you can't easily acquire the car you want, check the ticket list and let me know what you're after.

    Thank you once again, good Sir,

    What's a difficult DTM-level car to tune?

    I'll have a look through my garages and such...

    I like the idea of either online/offline mixed or separate...Have we done a true online/offline challenge yet, or just talked about it?

    If you want the ultimate tuning event over the month of December, then I think this needs to be more than one car. We need to tune a multitude of cars.

    NASCAR at Daytona
    F1 at Monaco
    LMP Car at Circuit de la Sarthe
    Rally Car at Toscana
    Touring Car at Tokyo
    Muscle Car at Laguna Seca
    FF Street Car 400PP on Top Gear Test Track
    FR Street Car 500PP in Rome
    4wd Street Car 550PP on Trial Mountain
    Ferrari MR 600PP at Monza
    Yellow Bird RR on Nurburgring GP/F

    As far as I remember the only thing we have done online was Timber's touge clusterfu shootout. Everything else since has been offline for sharing of cars. I don't know about tough DTMs but isn't the Courage C60 LMP supposed to be a bear? Super GT and JGTC have probably all been done over and over, formula cars probably a little too high level for a fun shootout. DTM or LMP would be fun I think. I will start compiling a list of overall winners from the year.

    @Cy, I have all of the 2x level tickets as well as most of the other levels and I think the Rally ones as well. I will start sending you what I have but you'll need to accept a FR from my GTP account. I have been trying to do the same thing as well as collecting 0/0 examples of everything on my main account. I think I'm up to about 800+ there. Anyhow, I'll get you that FR in a few hours and send a few tickets before I have to start giving out prizes for FB2. :) Birthday tickets are probably the tricky ones and we may need to go to the marketplace for those.

    Thanks, DigiB, appreciate it. I hadn't thought about the Birthday tickets, but perhaps they'll be appropriate/useful if we run an event with cars from a particular decade :tup:

    I'll add you as soon as I can, thanks once again...

    I like this idea. :tup:

    Ideas are plentiful with this line of thinking, the hard part will be picking a few specific ones to use. I'm thinking 5...


    I think we can pull off online, we just need to make the cars eligible for anything online to all be purchasable premiums.

    The concept shootout is winding down so I was just wondering what's the next one?

    I'm a big fan, and enjoy reading and watching things develop. :)

    Any idea how long till a new one?

    I'm still taking ideas and have to test some cars/combos, since we're regulating individual cars, I hope to make them fun and challanging at the same time.
    Whenever it does start, we're probably looking at a month-long tuning window and a month for testing. Long windows to make sure everyone available has time and such, especially with holidays coming around, and to not interfere with current running events.

    Pretty much some form of MCH's idea:
    It's going to be all premium cars for ease.

    With various tuners losing their PS3s over the past year and still managing to get tunes into various shootouts, I had a bit of a crazy idea for a future event. Why not do a team tuning event. Each entry would consist of one tuner and one test driver. The tuner would function as crew chief and do all tuning based solely on the test drivers feedback.:crazy:
    Would require a bit of coordination to set up the teams, and tuners would have to be on a strict honor code of not driving the car themselves during the tuning period, but think it would be interesting to see how more of us would fair if we had to work under these conditions. Also it would in a way simulate real life where rarely if ever will a crew chief get behind the wheel of the teams race car, instead relying on their own knowledge of how things work and the feedback from the driver during setup and testing.:drool:

    What if the tuner/driver disagree on what on-track changes a specific adjustment makes?

    As I said the tuner wouldn't be allowed to drive the car at all during the tuning process.
    The only information the tuner gets to work with is what the test driver provides to them.
