    Dumb question. Why are you not allowed to tune the car before the race? What if i want to practices with the car a couple days before race day? Or did i read the rules wrong?
  3. Vezella22


    Thank you very much! I'll give it a try.

    You are welcome to try out the combo of course, we want the series to be a competition on driving skill, not tuning ability. But I posted the race specifics early so practice up :)

    Hi Jerome.

    I see you are a new member Vezella. In order for you to compete in the OMRS, you will need to get entered into the GTP_Registry which the details can be found here. You will need to use your GTP_Account to race with, better get on it! :cheers:

    Thanks for your support GTP_Eriba Phillip, sorry still getting everyone's names right :bowdown:

    Softs!? Light damage!? Bahh!! :p

    M3 brute force is best experienced on hards. However thats just my opinion. I guess other people may be able to race better on softs. Either way, I'll be there :tup:

    You are welcome to use any Sports tire compound :tup:

    But I was on the fence about using a different compound for the next event and you just convinced me, haha.

    You know I have to be honest, I never thought much of painting a car nor cared for the color (except yellow, I love using yellow in LAN racing for some reason) but it's really fun especially when I have over 1,000 to choose from. I'll paint my M3 before race day.

    I can't wait!!!:gtpflag:

    Sounds good, have to make sure I'm around.

    I'm definitely going to be joining in this month after completely missing last months races :tup:

    Not sure what livery I'll be sporting as yet we get extra points for having an absolute abomination of a paint job that others may find visually offensive? :sly: If so I have the perfect colours...anyone that saw my poor Swift will vouch that when it matters, I have really horrific taste! :tup:

    Hopefully I can make Small_Fryz's race. I'd be interested :)

    Are we allowed to purchase different wheels for the car from GT auto?
  19. Jump_Ace

    Staff Emeritus

    You will be rewarded much respect for such paint jobs. Maybe whoever has the most offensive paint job can pick the next track to use next month :lol:

    Sure, knock yourself out :)

  20. GTP_Plato


    I will try to make this, have my little boy for the day and it varies what time he leaves. I hope to make it but if not will try to make the next one.
  21. Horst


    Just so I get this straight: There are four time slots and two races will be held per slot? Also I'm not supposed to participate in more than one race and/or slot, right?

    I'll try to hit the first slot then, which will be between 8pm and 10pm in germany (GMT+2)... Already set a reminder in my cell phone. :dopey:
  22. Jump_Ace

    That's correct. However, last month didn't have a full turnout, so unless the race room is nearly full, you can race in a couple time slots. My hope is that in the future if it takes off, we limit it to one race, but we'll see.

    Practiced last night with Crispy, Disaster (broken wheel I heard :tdown:) and Shin Roh; thanks fellas.

    Man I am slow through most of that course :dopey:

    Hi Jerome. Is it allowed to make a pit stop during the race?
  25. Jump_Ace

    Staff Emeritus
    United States Portland, OR

    Most definitely if you need to do so :) Good question that may need addressing, I'll add that.

    Not too many midday (on Canada's West Coast P.D.T.) time slots; probably join Small_Fryz; before my Concours Club :)
  27. Captain Roh

    United Kingdom NG9

    Umm... how would that work?

    I think I'm right in saying my particular time zone, UK (BST), is 9 hours ahead of all times posted. That would put Small Fryz lounge WAY after concours. Or would it be way before on Sunday for you? :lol: I'm confuzzled! And I dont want you to miss concours!!! :D

    I'll be joining Animeras lobby anyway. Jerome's is bang on quali time this saturday and the others are too late. ..... Well, :sly: Depends if I'm enjoying myself ;)

    Thanks for the fast reply, Jerome. :tup:

    Missed the first race, but just had a training session with Sjaak now and we will try to join in either Animera's last slot or Stevens first slot. :)

    That doesn't take daylight savings into consideration though Jerome. The NA times are now +1hr.

    Ottawa (New York for you Yanks), is only GMT-4 right now.
