December 18 @ 7:30 P.M. Eastern

Car: NISMO 400R 1995, 394 HP, 3417 lbs, Tires = Comfort Soft, (Max PP = 532)

Add the usual FC Suspension, Different, Manual Transmission, Vectoring Differential, and Brake Controller.

This car is offered by Haggerty's only (not available now). It is a rare R33 which set the quickest production car lap at Nordschleife, in its day - just under 8 minutes. The GT7 tires that we will use easily offer lap times under 8 minutes, too. You should be able to get less than 7'48.

The car also takes its time getting up to terminal speed, so that helped determine which tracks we use here. And being an AWD car, we have to have a challenging course for it, too. Gearing and braking will be important. There is some aero and with default part differences, the PP level will be set, this time.

Because Christmas is on a Monday, the race tracks will all be closed for the holiday.

However, rest up and keep sober for ringing in the new year, January 1st!

Stay safe, have a wonderful holiday, see you in the new year.

Add the FC Manual Transmission; the default car has the other necessary parts. You may benefit from the Brake Controller, too.

This is a ticket car.

January 22 @ 7:30 P.M. Eastern

Car: Chaparral 2X VGT, 905 HP, 992 lbs, Tires= Racing Soft

With Racing Soft tires, no tire wear or fuel to worry about, the only concerns left are our driving, not bugging our neighbours, and not splattering ourselves all over the walls. Hitting curbs is not a good idea in this car. GT7 allows it to flip onto its roof.

Since the POV will be so low to the ground, pick your favourite view. Also, practice, otherwise you will wish that you had.

February 12 @ 7:30 P.M. Eastern

Car: VW Scirocco Gr.4, 358 HP, 2315 lbs, Tires = Sport Soft, (target PP = 625ish)

Add the Racing Transmission. Since the car is a FWD, using the Brake Controller can certainly help with control.

Tracks & Conditions, (Laps)
Maggiore East End, Tires = 8X Fuel = 8X, (18)
Barcellona National, Tires = 8X Fuel = 8X, (11)
Nurburgring Sprint, Tires = 8X Fuel = 8X, (10)

Since this is an FWD, it gives very consistent times. Join us tonight and find out how consistent.

March 4 @ 7:30 P.M. Eastern

Car: Renault R4 GTL 1985, 33 HP, 1587 lbs, Tires = Comfort Hard, normal computer, Tires = 50X Fuel = 39X
Set #1: (PP = 149)
Set #2: (PP = 159), Full Control Computer

Add the normal FC Suspension, Manual Transmission, Differential, and Brake Controller.

These races won't be entirely typical for MNR. The lobby will be private because of the lack of host controls. During the second set of races, the Full Control Computer will be allowed giving a whopping 2 more HP! That's a 6% increase, so don't laugh. Tire wear will not be a problem. Fuel usage will be close for all races, especially Set #2.

Because this is such a low-powered car, these should be very close momentum races, meaning that drivers will be using proper out-in-out techniques. That wide entry is not permission to dive-bomb corners. Drivers will have their hands full trying to keep their speed up. They don't need to be worried about getting pushed off the track, too. Right?

hello master gt, I am interested in joining monday night races, have some questions as I am new to the playstation platform

how do I add you to friends, is it in game or through the playstation menu?
also do you all do a voice chat while racing or is communication done another way? I normally race with speakers but can plug in headphones to the controller if needed

thanks. my psn is same as my gtplanet account, notarjy
 
Thanks for your interest in our racing, notarjy.

My PSN ID is at the bottom of the first post: MastrGT. I can send a PSN friend request or new member add to our private PSN thread. Our primary communication is there, so there is more than one way to connect.

Most of us do use Party Chat. Headphones help with better communication as picking up room noise can annoy other drivers.

Stick with us and your driving will get better.
 
I tried to add you as a friend, notarjy, but your settings won't allow that. Send me a friend request to MastrGT, or change your settings.

March 11 @ 7:30 P.M. Eastern

Car: Chevrolet Corvette Convertible (C3) 1969, 298 HP, 3422 lbs, Tires = Comfort Soft, (target PP = 484.51)

There is more than one C3, so make sure that you get the correct one. It should still be available in the Used Dealership for another day.

The C3 benefits a lot from a good tune. Overhaul the car (frame, engine, oil). Add the FC Suspension, Differential and Manual Transmission. The Brake Controller can help.

Car: Ferrari F12berlinetta, 730 HP, 3362 lbs, Tires = Sport Medium, (target PP = 654.32)

Add the FC Suspension, Differential, Manual Transmission. You can use the Brake Controller, but I didn't feel that it was necessary.

The heavy car handles well, with a good tune. Berlinette means little saloon, or sports coupe.

Car: BVLGARI Aluminum VGT, 394 HP, 2205 lbs, Tires= Sport Hard, (target PP = 619.47)

This is another untunable VGT sled. It handles OK, but with stock tires, you need to acclimate to it and be careful.

April is one of the months with 5 Mondays, but the special event will be held first rather than last. April Fool's!

Special Event: There are four timed races increasing in length, on four very different tracks. This makes for about two hours of good racing.

Monday Night Racing

April 1 @ 7:30 P.M. Eastern

Car: TVR Tuscan Speed 6 2000, 360 HP, 2425 lbs, Tires = Sport Hard, (target PP = 573.47)

TVR-Tuscan-Speed-6-2000-Derwentwater-Lakeside.jpg


Tracks & Conditions, (Laps)
Race #1:
Goodwood, Tires= 9X Fuel 10X, (15 minutes)
Race #2: Brands Hatch, Tires = 10X Fuel = 9X, (20 minutes)
Race #3: Tokyo East Clockwise, Tires = 10X Fuel = 5X, (25 minutes)
Race #4: Nurburgring Endurance, Tires = 10X Fuel = 4X, (30 minutes)

Race #4 is planned on 3 laps, but the leaders may get 4 laps.

Don't hit what you can see. [SCCA rulebook]
 
Firstly, I would like to welcome all of the new drivers who joined us, recently. You seem to enjoy our type of tough but fair challenges and style of racing, and I look forward to you racing with us often.

Even though the last night's special event was different than our typical racing (that's what makes it special), they were good challenges and made us all think. The room was quiet from a healthy dose of concentration. That's the best, most honest feedback in real time that a host could ever ask for. 🥰
 
Thanks for the invite. Its too bad I couldn't pick up the TVR in time (its a very cool car), but hopefully next week I'll be a little more competitive.
I try to make sure that everyone can have the car each week, either because it is always in a dealership or, with enough heads-up, to get it in the used dealership. You fell inbetween.

My signature links most of the cars that we have used. Unused cars shouldn't be permanently modified, unless you have a duplicate. Compare the PP of your car with the weekly room settings. It is based on stock power, weight, tires and the added FC parts listed. That way we all use the same adjustable car.

Also, new cars will get used ASAP, so get at least one of each when they first get released. Most of us have spare credits, by now. We are going to use a 20M credit car at year's end, but which one hasn't been decided yet. Saving up credits now would be a good idea.

No, I post the details Friday nights on the PSN channel, only if necessary on Saturday. Look there first.

I post events here whenever I can, usually on Saturdays or Sundays.

You have time to grind, plus doing the Weekly Challenges is consistently profitable. There are a number of different grinding races. I preferred the Sardegna one.
