TEAM MISSION

The NightKids are a GT5 Touge and Wangan team. We started out as a Touge team back in August 2011. Since then we have expanded our horizons to Wangan. The team name comes from the popular anime, Initial D. We participate in LotS and in the Wangan Masters Tournament. We have also expanded to drifting recently.

Touge​

ToscanaTarmac_1-1-1-1.jpg

Tōge or Touge (峠?) is a Japanese word literally meaning "pass." It refers to a mountain pass or any of the narrow, winding roads that can be found in and around the mountains of Japan and other geographically similar areas, like the legendary Nordschleife in Germany.
In order to decrease the incline of mountain roads, thereby making them easier for commercial trucks to pass, engineers place a series of S bends in steep roads that provide access to and from high mountain elevations. These passes have become popular with street racers and motorsport enthusiasts because they provide a challenging, albeit dangerous, course.

Touge in GT5​

We run Touge according to L.o.t.S. rules

L.o.t.S.-Legend of the Streets

We run touge on Toscana Tarmac and Mt. Aso race editor tracks. We also run it on tracks like Côte d'Azur and the Nurburgring Nordschleife.

We run 3 classes.

Class A

-500pp
-Sports hard tires

Class B

450pp
-Sports Hard tires
-2wd only

Class C
-420pp
-Sports hard
-1600cc or less engine displacement

All 3 classes share the following rules:

-No more than 95% engine limiter (95%-!00% only)
-No more than 5% of car weight in ballast (If your car weighs 1000kg, then you are only allowed 50kg ballast.)
-No fully customizable transmission


Wangan

SpecialStageRouteX_22-1-1-1.jpg

'Wangan' (literally bayshore in Japanese) is the endonym of this longest, straightest road in the entire country. There is also road traffic to contend with, including a fair number of heavy trucks. Because of this, the action is inherently hazardous, and wrecks are common. Blown engines are also a frequent hazard, especially with the extremely high power engines.

Wangan in GT5​

We run Wangan according to the rules of the Wangan Masters Tournament.

If you mainly do Touge and Wangan the drift section might be the wrong one. Think about if your team is more about drifting or gripping
Either way good luck!

It is all about grip, for me. There is no other place on GTP with team support.

Great to see a Touge and Wangan specific team on GTP. I've been playing around with some Touge monsters of my own...

It's hard putting up room numbers when your laptop isn't currently in your possession. I will be holding public tryout rooms twice a week, labeled NightKids Tryouts-Tôgé, or NightKids Wangan.
If interested in joining just post here, or message me over psn.
