    Just to clarify what monkeywall said.

    No turbos allowed. If you can't reach the 360 PS power limit, stage 3 tuning is available for use.

    I would, but I know the people I live with well enough to know that any form of internet trickery isn't going to happen. Heck, it took nearly a full year of persuation to get a cable to my room.

    So far, I'd say you should definitely go racing. The numbers *do* allow for a safety car, but look at it this way: in the dying weeks of GT6, you, with no "backing" from any of the big cartels organisations, have managed to put together a thus-far relatively active series with a more than acceptable number of entries. If anyone should be enjoying the racing aspects of that, it should be you.

    So yes, I will volunteer and have both safety cars on standby should you decide one is needed.

    I thought of doing live race stewarding (like F1 but more reliable) but yeah, this is the second to last GT6 series I am doing brcause GT Sport is coming.

    I don't know if I can participate on Round 1 today, as I might have to go out with my parents. If I appear is because I can. If I can't appear is because I can't attend Round 1. However, if I don't attend Round 1, I'll be attending the next round.

    My car is ready by the way. :tup:

    Nice race guys

    A little question for @Antares26 what way have you set up your trans. After you all left i reset my trans to default then final to 5.000 then max to min etc, done another 5 laps and was. 3 faster than the time @Jomas set

    It was just a tune I slapped on last minute. Flipped the gears and tried to adjust a bit. Not the quickest so you may have found a more optimal setup.

    I am unable to practise until Monday. I have almost no free time on weekends.

    Not the field I was expecting yesterday but awesome race nonetheless.

    It was a great race. I am glad I didn't hit @CrazyJohn at the hairpin, braking on the grass is never a good idea.

    Now it is time for Motegi, where I am less confident than Suzuka. I may be practicing tomorrow during the afternoon (~2/3PM UK Time), but today I can't.

    I think it was one lap or two after the first restart

    Edit : It was in the 13th lap

    I just came back at home and I opened a practice room. I don't know how much time I will stay.

    Edit : Room closed. I am a second slower than @monkeywall even if I do everything I can behind the wheel. I tried different setups (suspensions, downforce) but I came back on the Suzuka's setup.

    That extra 30kg more than me must be why you're down @Jomas by that much. It was a near perfect lap for me with a completely different set up from suzuka. I averaged 1.52.4's

    @monkeywall I tried without the extra weight, and I did a 1'52.4 with the Suzuka's setup on the first lap, so I don't think the weight is the only reason. After the MotoGP race (2PM UK Time I guess), I will open a practice room for 2 hours.

    In the S1 at Suzuka, I was nearly at full throttle, except the first and last corner. I opened the practice room, restarting my setup from 0.

    After hours of practice and tests, Motegi will be difficult for me. By curiosity, I tested the RX7 with a setup built in 5 minutes including the extra weight, and I am a second faster than the BRZ on that track, loosing everything in slow corners. Anyway, I hope for great battles, even if I am not the fastest !

    And I think it is safe to say that a podium will satisfy me.
