    I'd rather see just modern LMP's and then the Nissan when it comes out

    There enuf LMPs to do a separate championship! How about that!

    But the 7 Group Cs should be raced as group Cs not LMPs!

    Mikey you really need your head examined. You were the one who was supporting the cars being used.

    I'd personally prefer to have 6 different Manufacturers running. Yes some are in different categories but I don't see the problem with varying the grid up a bit and the cars we get to see. Running unbalanced numbers of each car, doest make sense to me.

    You never said anything about the Mazda being included. In fact, I didn't even know the whole list of LMP cars that were going to be used? :confused:

    Well if that's the case we'll just run the 3 LMP1 cars :tup:

    I have messaged you and despite you being the one actually asking for them, just to make others aware.

    Glad we are sticking to the most recent LMPs. If people had a choice I think that the 787B would be massively over-used if not completely dominating the championship. The Peugeot, Audi, and Toyota at least have different advantages over each other but are similar in performance.

    I can see some people's concerns. But if anything the LMP1 class will be more OP. In real life fair enough, but with PD's 'logic' the cars would be reasonably balanced. It also gives some more varied cars instead of the usual drool you see.

    But we'll stick to the LMP1 then :tup:

    yeah cars are realistic but group c's in an LMP class just looks odd imo, it's like seeing a gt500 in GTLM

    ^I don't see why you think it's so odd. Both LMP1 and Group C have been the premier class at Le Mans, and honestly it's debatable which are overall faster.

    Does this mean we're stuck picking between hybrids and diesels? Both of which :censored: and don't belong in racing in my opinion. I like my race cars singing to me :D

    So what is the current LMP1 fight in WEC for you ? Isn't it great a car that still consume as much fuel as a 600BHP engine but actually develops 1000 or more ? If that isn't a racing war machine I don't know what more you are asking for. Don't mix things up with the crappy F1 regulations. :D
    (You must be happy the R18 isn't the hybrid version then, diesel + hybrid :lol: )

    And what if the LMP2 comes quickly True, that will be another manufacturer, will it replace LMP1 spots ?
    Or is it out of the question now ? :confused:

    Guess I don't really have a problem with hybrids, just diesels. With their pedestrian low redlines and horrid exhaust notes.

    And what the ACO is doing is worse than FIA w/Formula One in my opinion. The top cars at Le Mans are now designed to sip fuel instead of charge forward. Even some of the best drivers have been cut by teams because, while fast, they weren't thrifty enough with fuel consumption. Utterly ridiculous.

    If the Nissan does come we could try fit it in but I honestly don't think it will be out until quite a while :(

    I think it's in June it gets released. But, I'm not entirely sure. I wouldn't be surprised if it's after GT Academy. :tup:

    GTA brings a LMP2 car... And the Nissan is an LMP1 car... Ther seems to be some sort of step up... I think the LMP1 will be used to try and introduce us to LeMans... then release a LMP2 car?

    Not quite, but all the pieces are there...

    You're annoyed that I can't understand typos and improper uses of grammar? Things which are a direct result of you just being lazy? That's ridiculous and selfish of you.

    Selfish? How? Just because I am dislexic I'm selfish?

    No I'm do angry because you can't understand. I'm angry because you are making me out to be stupid.

    That ban I got was a wake up call and now I read my posts a lest 5 times be for posting them.

    Personally I know its a problem and its one that effects me in day to day life not just on GTP.

    Edit: you don't know the struggle of not being able to spell simple words or not being able to structure sentaces or when to put , in the right place day in day out. Its annoying to say the lest, but to then be insulted after already feeling down after struggling to write makes you feel use less.

    This is a personal matter and one that I'm very sensitive about so I don't like people being rude and insulting me about it. I don't mind people telling me "troy, you have speld **** wrong" or "Troy, you used a / where your not supposed to". But to be plain rude like you is lowering and degrading.

    We're getting off track here :tup:

    Audi R18 Team Joest
    BMW V12 LMR Race Car
    Pescarolo Courage C60
    Peugeot 908 HDI Team Oreca
    Toyota TS030

    Each of the above are LMP1. I also think we should add the Bentley as it's essentially the same and gives us a different 6th manufacture.


    Sounds good to everyone?

    Can we not just stick to Audi, Toyota and Peugeot for LMP? We might as well just call this a 90's Group C Endurance series as this rate...

    Sorry to sound harsh, and yeah sure they're not the quickest cars we can use, but I kinda like there being 3 modern-era cars alongside modern era GTEs... Feels like taking a step backwards by using older model cars... Feels like we're falling into the clutches of the other types of enduro's.

    Now that I've thought about it more, I agree. In real life there aren't too many LMP1 cars running anyways, so having a small field up there isn't too bad, and we could always add an LMP2 class.

    @True-blue-8, I want this series to stay modern. And realistic. I don't want to see unsophisticated Group C cars running with, the empitmy of sophistication, LMP1 cars. It's just not a good idea. There's only 3 brands (not including Nissan) racing in LMP1 today and that still provides quality entertainment.

    In short, Group C & LMP1 = :tdown:
    LMP1 Only = :tup:
