Thanks. I've tried to make a livery yesterday, per Sick's early 60's photos, the white with black Le Mans stripes. But beyond painting the car white, I could not get the stripes. So yes please, if you have a ready-made livery, I'd happily take it, thanks.Hello half_sourly. Yes, you can have no. 9 - no problem. Will you "create" your own car or do you need a livery with no. 9 from my garage?
Sorry but you can not use that method for all cars...so I’ll drive something else for Le Mans and revert to it for the other races. The problem is not its lap time but its inability to keep up on the straight. I get my best solo lap times in this car but due to the nature of le mans it is not a “winner”. Horses for courses comes to mind.Hello half_sourly. The race was announced via PSN community (THUNDERCLUB HISTORIC CAR RACE) to all members. Next time I will set a post at GTPlanet too.
About the Daytona: It´s a given thing that some cars are fast on straights and others are fast in corners. But at least the laptime (3:55 min for the sportscar class at Le Mans) is the only way to create a usable BOP. That´s the way it is.
That is what I said...Horses for courses . The BOP process is fraught with compromises but much of the imposed ( necessarily) reductions of power or addition of weight can be partially reduced by good tunes and driving style alterations. For Le Mans I pick a car with good handling and a higher top speed, for the Ring I pick a car that handles better. All that matters is that we have fun ....see you on track.GTP_Nail: Sorry but you can not use that method for all cars...so I’ll drive something else for Le Mans and revert to it for the other races.

ZOPPO GT: Sorry Nail, the laptime is the only way to create a BOP. Imagine we will give more power to the Daytona and it will be faster on straighs. At the end that increase a faster laptime - maybe 3:50 min instead 3:55 min. That´s unfair to other cars and we have to add more power to them, so they can do 3:50 min also. But now they are faster on the straight again and we have to add more power to the Daytona again - and so on and on. It may be a sad thing that the Daytona is lame on straights, but overall it is still as fast on the lap as any other car in the class.
Should we set a speedlimit for faster cars on the straight? Than we have to set a speedlimit for the Daytona in corners! That´s a worst solution. Only the laptime can be the basis for the BOP, there is no other way.
