    Furi, how many spots are there available for each car? Because that reply to my post was kinda misleading, I even had to reach out to @Downhill Dino to ask if he would let me take his spot as it seemed he was only leaving a Berlinetta available for Ryan, to which he said yes...

    To finalize this, I'll be down to just over a million Cr. and be racing the GTO this season...

    I asked you if could race the GTO as to not waste the credits buying it otherwise and you answered by saying Snow and Daiba were racing it, hence my need for clarification on that...

    Right, if there's two cars available per make, that's 4 spots. For all intents and purposes it's however you want to make those numbers up. So Ferrari got 4 spots in GT-O, up to you guys if it is 4 GTO's, 3 GTO's and 1 GT, and so on.

    Fine then, if @Downhill Dino and @RyanRacer want the 250 GT I'll race the 300 SL. The cars should all be relitively even anyway.

    Once all this is settled, if no picks the last (?) GTO, I'll take the Bimmer.

    h. You can still go in a Fez as you wish. You, Ryan, Yera, Snow can all be Ferrari's if you desire.

    I would hope so since the BoP is mainly my doing! :lol: Speaking of which, I know this is a bit of a conflict of interest with me racing in the series at the same time, but I hope I was able to come up with a fair balance. If anyone has any gripes about a car's performance (good or bad), please feel free to speak up about it, and I'll check, if I can confirm what you're experiencing.

    Joe, if you're testing the GT-O's and some car seems out of balance, please tell me. I'm reasonably confident that no car should be far off, but another proven driver's opinion would be good to hear.

    Please all bear in mind that the cars might not be exactly on par on any given track. However, the BoP should balance out between the twistier tracks and the faster tracks. Test tracks were Daytona, Brands Hatch GP and Le Mans and the BoP was made pre-1.09. That also means that there was no camber effect, so slight BoP-changes might occur before the season, if a car is found to behave too well after the physics-changes.

    So @Furinkazen with the GT-O class filling up nicely, are you thinking of going back to the Pro-Am sub categories?

    The Five Ferrari Threat :mischievous:

    Okay to round off the Five Ferrari Threat I'll be using the 250 GT OR 250 GTO. Either way there will be three of one model. I'll let you know which one I choose. In the meantime, I'll take a "free Ferrari space."

    Double Post. At this moment in time use the Berlinetta. There's a 90% chance I will be using the GTO... unless I decide I want to destroy the Mulsanne with a Shelby GT350. Dat handling though :scared:

    Yep, I've tried the 300 SL and that's what I shall use this season.

    @snowgt What sort of times in GT-O were you setting around BH 80's?

    Guess we're "team mates" by virtue of the fact that we're in the same car :p

    BH 80's hadn't been released when I tested. :p By the way, I'm ambivalent towards the 80's layout. The front part after Druids is quite spectacular in a fast car and a lot more fluid, but not really more difficult, and the back part (especially Sheene) I dislike, because you have no idea where to downshift/turn in. The modern setup offers more rhythm, I think. But maybe I'm just used to it better now.

    I can tell you that the cars were about 1.5 seconds faster than last season on Daytona. Then again, 1.09 probably took a little bit away from that again as all times apparently are a little slower after the update. They will still be quite noticeably faster though.

    "il commendatore" was not pleased with @LancerEvo7's performance in WSC VII. The Scuderia is out for blood for WSC VIII.

    He was actually pleased with my consistent results, the only issue he had was the one race where I attempted to drive a BMW.

    Did a quick run in the 300SL and got down to 33.3. The SL will probably shine more at the faster circuits though (of which there's plenty in WSC).

    Come to think of it, it seems that oddly all the twister tracks are at the beginning of the calendar.

    I forgot what I was getting there. I'll have to look it up.
