    An FGT series? You bet! But Fridays are a no-no for me. Saturdays at 21:00 GMT would be excellent. But why not make it more of a simulation and have real F1 race distance/duration for the races? It would also be neat if you made RS tires the options and RM tires the primes for certain races, as is in F1. And how about a longer calender? It doesn't have to be 22 races, but 16 would be great. What do you think?

    Somehow I knew you'd be interested lol

    That time is good for me mate.
    Personally I wanted the race duration similar to real F1 race, just thought i'd compact it first to try get some interest. Although putting the 305kilometer rule would be good.
    Tyres I was unsure of, not sure how welcome Softs would be

    Again, I had a race for each country, but decided to compact it first. But yep :tup:

    If you want the largest grid possible compacting it is the way to go. Once it has become reasonably popular, realism should then become the top priority. After that, the chances for it to become as well known as the CORE WEC is quite good. :) As for RS tires, there is that group that say "they're no good" and "it takes away all the fun and skill involved," but for this car, it really needs them. Without them, honestly for me the car is no fun at all (or maybe I'm just a n00b who doesn't like cars that require skill :indiff:). Plus, I've discovered that even with RS tires the car cannot take 130R at Suzuka flat out (that's probably because I had it set at full power and was hitting 220+ MPH down the straight). So if you do allow RS tires for certain races (please do! :scared:), then you should definitely set tire wear to normal, and actually, this car already has plenty of tire wear, so you should set it to normal regardless, or else we will have to be pitting every 5 laps.

    Note that these are merely suggestions, I'm not trying to impersonate Harsk here...

    And a good update it was! We now have RS's, a healthy 12-race calender, with real race distances! :tup: As for the tire wear thing, I'm not sure, perhaps when limited to 600 BHP all tire wear and fuel consumption becomes neutralized so that setting it on Fast is necessary? This will have to be tested so that we know for sure.

    sorry that's one thing I forgot to change, fast doesn't give much tyre strategy, it's meant to be normal after I tested it earlier :tup:

    RS tyres are way too grippy. Waaaay to grippy. Comforts or sports are better and also like real tyres actually grain and lose tyre wear - if you spin one of them, you can lose a full 2/3 off of tyres. Otherwise it'll become Mario kart at 200mph with all the downforce you have, take it from someone with experience and give it a test ;)

    We've got a healthy size grid now (need to update the OP) and i'm thinking of holding a test session this weekend, if people are about.

    Also, traction I've ruled out. ABS best we keep. SRF is something i'm unsure about. Using it makes the car handle much more stable, and loses the skill a bit. Opinions?

    ABS I think should be kept, because when I tried it on 0 I had to set the brakes at 2/0 to keep them from locking up and spinning out, and after they still felt pretty awful. Setting ABS on 1 I've noticed still causes the brakes to lock up a bit occasionally. SRF, since it gives the car magic grip when it spins/slides, shouldn't be allowed even if it does make the car much more stable.

    The more I drive this car the more i'm loving it. Managed to get a tune on it and it's handling so nicely, very consistent.

    Only problem I find is that damn hairpin at Monaco :banghead:

    Just hope we can get a good grid together

    Yeah the trick to the harpin at Monaco and many other sharp corners that cause the car to spin out on entry is to take them in one gear higher than normal, which allows the car to rotate around it in a graceful four-wheel drift, while also working wonders for your lap time. :D

    With the car set up I haven't lost control through any corner, it feels really stable. The problem i'm having is the understeer and clipping the wall on the exit. Will lower the ride height a bit, that should help.

    Sounds good to me, but I'd like to attend a practice session of some kind before committing to this series. I don't want to ruin the fun for everybody else with poor driving skill on my part.
    :cheers:

    I drive very poorly, as you can see. Don't be afraid! There is an incredibly good chance you wouldn't pull a RyanRacer like when I raced at a wet Silverstone with the Chromeline Jaguar XJ13 on SS back in WSC VII! ;) I was crashing into everyone and everything in that race, and was beaten by all but one lower GT class car! :(

    Sounds like fun but I'm not sure I can commit to a Saturday series. I know I can definitely attend some races, but all of them? I can't say.

    Welcome mate :tup:

    I've added 8 teams in guys. Yes, Honda are a separate team, as its a proper manufacture. Also yes Lotus and Renault are there. I don't care what people say, the lotus team in F1 now are not lotus, its Renault, they're just stealing the bloody name :lol:
