    I just noticed how many of the last cars, including the Honda Civic, are at 10 lbs per Horse Power.

    Odd that.

    This upcoming Monday is a holiday and I can't host, so we will take a rare break from racing next week.

    This Monday will mark the 7th Anniversary of Monday Night Racing!

    August 19 @ 7:30 Eastern

    There be 3 races of 30 or more minutes in friends-only lobbies. Pitting will be a factor. Please pre-tune your cars, to keep the racing flowing. Normal settings of Heavy Damage and Strong penalties will be used.

    Toyota Corolla Levin APEX, Comfort Medium tires, 127 HP, 2072 lbs

    [​IMG]

    Tracks and Laps
    BB Raceway 2 (20)
    Horse Thief Mile 2 (12)
    Barcelona (8)

    Barcelona is a 20 minute race, as compensation for the 1st two.

    Such a wonderful car, sounds great! Seriously, I can't find a fault in its handling, except for its low HP.

    What a joy to drive and the CM tires were just right for it.

    We capped off a fun night with two laps on the Nordschleife, too.

    Car: Dodge Challenger R/T 1970, Sport Soft tires, 425 HP, 3801 lbs

    [​IMG]

    Tracks and Laps:

    Special Stage Route X, with High Boost (2)
    Big Willow (10)
    Bathurst (6)

    Watch out for downshifting. The high boost on Route X should make for a fun race, but you will need to adjust your gears for drafting.

    Buy the Alfa Romeo 4C Gr.3 Road Car for next Monday's MNR. It is on sale this week for only 5,000 credits.

    Practice driving it because, being a short-wheelbased MR, its handling is a bit inconsistent.

    Remember, today is your last chance to buy the BMW Safety Car, for the special event, next month!

    October 14th will be a 2fer. Not only is this the Canadian Thanksgiving day, but it will be my 65th birthday, so please try to join us for some fun racing with friends.

    Thanks, HammyMansell. I like to think of it as challenging fun. It isn't easy, but a few very good drivers rise to the occasion. You would fit right in.

    However, drivers of all skill levels join in and are very welcome to race with us and improve their skills in a safe but challenging environment.

    The AMG was a pretty challenging car to handle on the different tracks. Not impossible, but you do have to pay attention to it.

    Tracks and Laps:
    Autopolis Shortcut (10)

    The car seems to be inconsistent, so try to practice in it. On the other hand, my guess is that the car will attract drivers.

    Certain cars will attract more drivers to your open lobbies. This Integra is one of them.

    Tracks (Laps):
    Willow Springs Horse Thief Mile (15)

    Change Steering Sensitivity to manage responses.

    By request. The kart is lots of fun on short twisty tracks. Very quick and responsive.

    The default tires have more than enough grip for acceleration, but we will use Sport Medium tires for braking and turns.
