    there was an incident on the final lap, Canita got disconnected hit LEDTHIRON from behind causing him to go from 4th to 8th, QW and Z both passed him and will keep the points earned for those positions. LED will also be earn 4th place points.

    Oh saw that incident and had no idea what happened. Glad he’s keeping his points. He deserved 4th place! Outsmarted me with his strategy.

    I saw it, and it looked out of character (for Canita) from a distance so that makes more sense.

    If that’s tolerated in your league @Wilo28 I’m gone after this crazy behaviour:


    He admitted he gave me the choice between a crash or lifting... I would’ve given him room by going wide. Crashing people on purpose to maintain your position is stupid and has to stop.

    @Wilo28 have you seen the new Kyoto Yamagiwa track? I think that would be a good add on to the Thursday race. It's still Yamagiwa, just extended. Think it'd be cool to use that track instead of the short layout? It feels great!

    Fuel mileage is an issue. The corvette could go 8 laps on fuel at the richest setting, other cars less maybe more

    Maybe consider ditching fuel until they balance it. To force pitstops, increase the tire wear just a bit

    After watching the incident from both points of view, there wont be any points adjusted or discipline handed down.
    However Damon I understand you were ahead and had a right to the line, you should have left enough room for the driver behind you.
    QW you should have let up a bit and followed instead of trying to go two wide considering the situation. both drivers took the aggressive rout and unfortunately QW got the worst of it. It happens.

    At the end of the day its unfortunate what happened and could have been avoided. Things like this should be avoided and going forward I expect better judgement from everyone this series. I do not want to go back to light damage since I believe this group can run heavy with no issues.

    its going to take two stops if you run rich. The cars are different but I believe they are very balanced. perfect? probably not. but but all cars are competitive.

    That’s a fair assessment. I was caught by surprise by the Genesis inside and misjudged the situation. The conversation in the lobby after the race is what made me the most furious honestly.

    Thanks @Wilo28 and see you for round 3! Happy Holidays!

    ohhh okay :D:(

    I feel that's what gives the race so much strategy and intensity haha I was able to run damn near 12 laps with 2 remaining with my fuel map set to 3 and 4. It put the pressure on me to keep a consistent line so I wouldn't lose a whole lot of time lol. And to me that's how it should be, No room for comfort, and on edge until you really pull away to a coasting position.

    I definitely took fuel consumption in to consideration when I chose a car. Honestly, that was my biggest consideration. I even realized I made a little mistake and the car that I really wanted was then taken. If you didn't recognize that, I'd have to say that was an oversight. Don't mistake this as being harsh, because I get how easy it was to miss, but I don't think I should be penalized for someone else's oversight.

    And yes, there is a huge difference in the mileage I'd say the worst I tested, gets about 35% worse mileage than the best car. But there is also difference in the cars' drivability.

    That's why the series settings are what they are. Nobody can drive on "1" and stop only once.

    Yeah, I love the settings as they are. I do think PD made some mistakes on which cars are good on gas and which ones are not. I couldn't find a reason for the differences other than maybe how much BOP adjustment were made to the power settings. But... I didn't understand how the 4C was nearly the worse with a boosted 4 Cyl. and very little weight.

    Could be, but I would assume since these are based on GT3 cars the tank would be set to a specified size. I know in the past they were mostly 100L, that would make sense as they all read 100L on the fuel gauge as well.

    On a separate note, the BOP adjustments they made last night are gonna suck for some (raised hand) and be praised by others.
    McLaren - Power (+2%) Weight (+5%)
    Genesis - Power (+2%) Weight (+5%)
    Corvette - Power (-4%) and Weight (+1%)
    AMG - Power (-2%)
    Mustang - Power (-3%)
    M6 - Power (+1%) Weight (+1%)
    RCZ - Power (+1%) Weight (+8%)
    Lambo - Power (-1%) Weight (+2%)
    Porsche - Weight (+3%)
    NSX - Power (-4%) Weight (+2%)

    Leagues/Series are gonna be tough with these moving targets.

    Fuel consumption is already bad with the Genesis. It might make it worse. At least, it’ll have a bit more power on the long straight at Yamagiwa.
