    Welcome to the International Racing Series' Fugu-Z Race Meet. This will be a one make series featuring the winner of the 2015 Gran Turismo Awards at SEMA. The car was built by the actor Sung Kang, known for his role in the 'Fast and the Furious' movie series. It is based on a 1973 240Z.

    Grid Start with False Start Check is also sure to make the racing interesting.

    Thanks again for hosting tonight @Clean Racer

    @fastone371 that first race was close until I binned it with 2 laps to go.

    My internet went out before I could write in the chat I’m okay with either tire as long as we choose one so I only need 1 setup.

    Yes it was, I was watching the gap lap after lap. Then Gentlemanracer was gaining on me the last 5 laps in the 2nd race, I think he went off on the penultimate lap. I wouldnt have lead either if it wasnt for the misfortune of Timlour.

    In testing the other night. Which tires seemed to have better results?

    I liked the RH a little better because of the higher lateral grip and shorter braking distances but the SS were fun as well. The car was a bit more lively on the SS. There was a 6 to 8 second difference in lap time for me but I am average at best and my tune is probably not optimal.
