Agreed - GT4 Ford Mustang Boss 302R it is !
^ @WiSchmo and @half_sourly might be attracted back?
If you have realistic aids on in the options you'll have access to both TC and ABS with this car if you choose to use them
Will certainly have a go before Monday.
Assumed correctly, @IfAndOr #139 for me, pls
To get a better impression of it give the tyres a couple of laps to warm up. The back end can be a little loose until then. It's better still on soft slicks (but you won't have them fitted at the start of the race).
I think that this new Mustang has two things missing from the previous one. It's got both headlights and wipers!
#122 for me please.
Just realized yesterday when my partner in crime asked why I didn't pack anything yet, that I'm on vacation this and the coming Monday
So I wish everyone a good race, and I'll rejoin in two weeks, if possible
I've lost count of the number of times I've reported for work and been sent home by my boss due to being on holiday! - it's always a nice surprise!
sorry guys i cant race tonight tv broke
Skipping this week and next week race.

A race full of 'moments'...
Great @half_sourly had one of those moments too..
Was going ok till the wife disturbed me to say goodnight lost it trying to catch up again , fun race for me for a change
Same here. Nice balance between having to be careful with the oversteering nature of the car and it not being uncontrollable (for me, anyway). I still think PC2 over exaggerates how cars behave with cold tyres, but once they warm up, it was a much better car than the previous one.
Oooh! I don't think I've ever been near the top fighting for championship points before. Probably all downhill from here on.
Yep, that was a fun race. I tried to concentrate on not making too many mistakes. Although there was still a nearly spin and a couple of 2 wheel moments.
No pitstops @Sick Cylinder? Are you trying to replicate PC3?
I was going to fit some soft slicks but a pitstop would have broken up my chase of @richroo and then @AndreasR which I was enjoying. So I really didn't mind.
Not sure if @Oldbass47 got the memo though, I see he stopped.
And mentioning PC3, "optimum" tyres would have made the car shine even more (and aid the previous one). We'd also be able to run in any weather conditions without worrying about tyre choice and just adapting our driving to the conditions. So for us 30 minutes, default setup racers I actually see that as a benefit. Those who like tuning and longer endurance races will obviously not be so keen.
Looking forward to Road America. While checking out the car I did try a couple of laps around there and it seemed to suit it. Watch those kerbs though - although the TC is a boon for those.
There's some really nice liveries on these 302Rs. Who needs an editor?
Great shots John.
I forgot to say earlier, great start @richroo. You rocketed off the line. Clutch?
Will the part upgrades in PC3 mean no more default setup lobbies? If so, hopefully there will be plenty of cars which are enjoyable to race without upgrading.
@half_sourly - if you make this series have two dropped scores then anyone who skipped the rounds with the previous car won't be penalised!
On the last video - the lap at at Laguna, the pre-race screen had a "tuning default" button. So I imagine there's still going to be a no upgrades default settings option. There's also still a sandbox mode which allows you to race what you like where you like, without credits, much like there is in PC2.
And as I said above the "optimum" tyres hopefully should make many more cars enjoyable to race on default.
Oh and vintage tyres are mentioned. So it's not just one tyre choice.
How about you give them drop position in coming rounds for not showing up !! Lol
Here you go. To ward off the likely questions - it'll all even out in the long run; rules are the same for everyone, etc.
I'll take feedback on mistakes, but please address your questions on approach/ rules to @Sick Cylinder.
@Sick Cylinder pls att above to page one .. ty
Results from Road America
Sorry I couldn't join you tonight. Here is the leaderboard:
I'll be back with #42 @ Sonoma National on Monday.
Oh dear @AndreasR
(A good battle yesterday )
Welcome back Jammy.
after a lightning start it soon come to an end when i pulled out of the toe of @IfAndOr to then look in my mirror to see @AndreasR steaming down the inside , totally missed the brake point with the overspeed and locked up going into turn one.
apologies guys !
then just had clear track lap after lap so ended up getting playful and CRASH the front went and vision was impaired, race over extinguished!
@IfAndOr have you been dreaming your racing every night as you seam to have found another gear in this car !
