    Updated! Man what a mess that was using this device...

    @RuddRacer great suggestion.

    If you guys could submit your times just as you see it in the leaderboards that would be great. No underline, no bold, and include your forum username afterwards. Then I could just copy paste. Thanks in advance!

    I would like to run some laps online if anyone is available? I'll be around pretty much all weekend so just post here if you have a lobby up or send me a PM here or PSN message/FR @ Roob_OG.

    I'm off to tackle @Ed_Night's RX7 lap!

    @RS__96__oO are you going to have a go at either of these? Please please! :)

    Updated! Great job in the RX7 jammy just a bit more and you could have P1!

    Gave the RX7 another go last night. I don't know if it was lack of sleep or what but I could bately finish a lap! I got so frustrated I gave up. I completed one lap, and it was in the 7:40's.. Maybe tomorrow :crazy:

    Amemiya RX7 / 7:27.821 RuddRacer

    Camaro SS '10 / 7:36.266 RuddRacer

    I think that is all I'm going to get out of the Camaro. I was stuck in the 7:37's since Wed but finally reached my goal tonight.

    Yes sir. Within the next hour I'll announce next week's combo's and update the times. I'm a little disappointed I didn't have time for another session in either car but it is what it is.

    Week #4 IMPORTANT INFORMATION

    Spec #1

    BMW M3 Coupe '07
    Tuning: Prohibited
    Oil change: O.K.
    Tires: Sport Hards

    A nice balanced car. Perhaps leaning a little towards understeer, atleast more than I prefer.

    Spec #2

    McLaren F1' 94
    Tuning: Prohibited
    Oil change: O.K.
    Tires: Sport Hards

    This car is surprisingly stable considering the speeds it reaches, its layout and being on sport hards. For some reason stock it comes with front and rear downforce.

    I try to update the leaderboards daily but occasionally the lack of time doesn't permit it. I'll get this done as soon as possible tomorrow, as well as add the specific specs for this week to the OP. I appreciate your patience.

    And congratulations to @Ed_Night and @RS__96__oO for the top spots this week. Week #4 I'm coming with a vengeance for you guys!

    Didn't get below 7:50 like I wanted to on the Camaro, hopefully I can do better in week 4. :boggled:

    Nice selection, :tup: I think I'll be using the M3 more. How is the F1 for handling? Is it like the nsx and gto? You won't have to worry about my lap times, I'll be in last place. :lol:

    At speed the McLaren has more understeer than both of them, however all that power can change that real quick exiting a corner. I find it incredibly satisfying to get on the throttle a little too soon and just ride it out, leaving tire marks the whole way :)

    I didn't get around to the Camaro for last week's event.

    I notice that some of the offline guys are running consecutive laps which is cool. Is there any way to set the online event to 'pit start'? The final turn start is more difficult in my opinion. Having a flying lap would be great.

    Pit start would ruin your first lap attempt, effectively making you waste 8- 9 minutes getting to the second lap . Personally being the restart junkie I am, it would be a huge waste of time. However I can set up with enough time for you to run 2 Laps? Would that be better for you?

    I guess it doesn't matter, but I suppose you could keep the pit start and just double the time like you said. That might work better for others. But then again the only problem is if they just run the first lap then they have to park it and wait for the remaining time to run out to register a time. Hmm.

    I'm kind of a purist and feel like you should get one shot per trial instead of continually restarting, but I'll do whatever the majority want. :)

    Pit start means the beginning of your lap would not be at full pace correct? If that's the case, I wont be setting it to pit start for the sole reason of not wanting to have the first lap be trashed from the get go.

    Correct.

    I think I was wrong in previous post. Ugh. I meant to say keep the final turn start and double the time. If you would like to try it this week it would be cool with me.

    @rosckolove not sure if you have not had time yet or just overlooked these updates from week 3.

    Not time to run yet! Updated the times.

    @cjr3559 I'll update the club events today, however I'm not even sure I'm going to keep the time trial part of it going. It seems pointless when grip and times are so much different than offline. And not many are even taking part. Any thoughts on the matter are welcome.

    And please remember to submit your laptimes including your forum name afterwards. Thanks!

    There's a McLaren for that! I'm really interested to see what people can do with this car. It really is a monster for a road car.
