    What tires are u currently runnin on, front and rear? With R1s tires should last a good 3 laps. they will still be yellow at the beggining of the 4th lap but it wont make it all the way. Pit at the end of the 3rd lap! Try this hope it works for u 2. Tell me if u try it! :crazy:

    Goes around coroner? You didn't mention any hearses in the lineup!!! :lol:

    Nice idea for the write-up, asking for advice on the cars first to make a good close (my kind of) race. Looking forward to finding out how you got on now the realtime updates have stopped....:tup:

    i stoppped cause the race stoped :lol:



    it is alot harder then you think, this car was amazing all around, (it had gold rims :lol: ) but after the first lap we had light green tires, and by the end of the second lap we had dark red tires, he collided with the Audi A4 touring car comen right out of the pits we did a 360. we stopped after 2 more laps of pure misery. I wanted a challenge boy did i get one. NEVER USE R3's during this race or any endurence race at the ring.

    I will be looking for more cars today.
    But tonight i will start at the same time. I will be here most of the day. So feel free to PM me or post about what comen up.

    Just did 7 laps in the Ford RS200 Rally Car ('85). ~440HP. R2 tires (my mistake as they come stock with R1's but i forgot I'd changed it)
    tranny set to auto 20. Max downforce. Some suspention tweaking.

    Story goes like this:
    Caught up with the 2 leaders (TT-touring car and M3 GTR race car 1/3 round the first lap)
    1. lap: 7:21
    2. lap: 7:16 (really smooth driving)

    Pit (after 2 laps :mad: )
    Exit pit side by side with GTR, TT 5s ahead.
    Due to blue tires didn't catch up with TT until last long straight

    3.+4.laps: 7:19 and 7:20

    Pit ( :mad: ) Exit 16s behind TT 3s behind GTR

    DO THEY NEVER PIT!!????

    5. lap 7:19 finally the GTR pits!! 9s behind TT
    6. lap 7:18 500m before first carousel i spot the TT, Is he in trouble?? YES! bad tires. yahooo! So long MF!

    Pit, both me and the TT. I change to R1 tires.
    exit pit with 10 s lead on TT

    7. lap: 7:22 (tires?) finish this lap with 16s lead.

    The car handles perfectly, lots of torque, great accel, superb suspention, I love it! Seems I have a winner here, but 24hrs alone. hmm. Must spread out, 4hrs pr day=6days.... :nervous:

    HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!! :tup:

    This was expected. It's not just the tires, it's the car.
    The NSX has no downforce and when you mentioned using R3s on it... well... :lol:

    All the Touring Cars you're competing against have 38/53 for DF. You have 0/0 :sly:

    It helps them take the corners much more smoothly and allows them to go up to 6 laps on a set.

    So either
    a) overpower them and pit all the time (e.g. with your Viper, or
    b) match their pit strategy with an underpowered car. (e.g. the Wedsport, the Altezza TC, or any of the other JGTC cars)

    Falken's a maybe although I wouldn't suggest it.
    GT40 is out. WAY too much.
    Mazda6 is worth a try. From your list, that would be my choice. It'll be tough though, a lot tougher than the Wedsport. Try it out and let us know what happens!


    The rest... no downforce... have to overpower
