    As much as I like the endurance format, for the purposes of happy cohabitation, I have to be selective about race nights. I want to give @THRASH Super Formula series a try so will not be participating in this season of endurance.

    If brad doesn’t have the room open by 8:30est can you get it open please? Also, you can change the tire wear to reset the room quicker than the time of day Incase you were unaware.

    I really appreciate this!! Btw, it’s storming here right now and our power has flickered a time or two soooo, I guess it’s Gods way of saying you ain’t racing tonight!!

    @Neutty
    Is the tire compound we use in qualifying the tire compound we must start the race on?

    @Cornbread243 all I could do is laugh when when you spun in the s turn and was a road block I couldn’t avoid lol I was going to try and stay out but at the end of the lap it felt like my front wheels were going to fall off lol. It was a ton of fun I look forward to next week and cornbread don’t worry about anything it’s all about having fun

    Yep. Still had fun with it. Just a bad night for me and I felt bad others got collected. The esses got me twice Mr. Falcon. You got the worst. I was hoping like the devil the was enough room/time for whoever was coming to have a clear direction.

    I really missed this series. I'm not much of a sprint racer. I was on a chat with a few guys who I really never conversed with prior to this race and was amused with the conversation and lighthearted ribbing going on. I'm not going to mention any names, but as a group they were really pulling for everyone on track to have a good race. Thanks to @Sean Renon and @Herimopp89 for helping me find a pace. Sean helped with that T2 hard right and following the line Herimopp was running helped me pick up a second over my previous fastest lap. It was fun watching the battle between P2-4 play itself out over the course of the race and come down to the last 5-6 laps. Congrats to @SAMHAIN85 for the win.

    Sounds like a great night of racing. It really sucks I had to sit out, but that’s life. I got the results and from the looks of it @SAMHAIN85 has the choice for the week 3 combo. Next week is Nurburgring Gr.3. See 2nd post for a little more information.

    @SAMHAIN85 you have until race time This coming Tuesday to release your combo and remember to read the rules on the first about combo selection.

    JW gave me internet problems - couldn't even get back on the internet for nearly 30 minutes after I disconnected. :(

    It was kind've funny because I was telling JW I was going to divebomb him (I was just behind him), then you came flying up and dive bombed both of us...
    Unfortunately we both got damage.

    I'd love to try this series but I'm a bit concerned about using a ds4 and the bad tire wear that comes with it. Any ds4 folks that currently run the series? If so, what are your thoughts? Is using a ds4 viable?

    I use a DS4, it takes time to get used to.
    We tend to cause sliding more often which hurts the tires - and when the tires do get worn down it's definitely easier to slide around - that being said, I have won some of these endurance races in the past on a DS4.

    DS4 is viable. I'm poor as well and use the controller. Actually rant a test with a friend versus his wheel and had better tire wear. My experience seems to be the difference in braking and acceleration.

    Hey guys, we are possibly looking into a confirmation list going forward. If I would have been there it sounds like we would have had 18 racers. By having a confirmation list we will be able to split the lobbies prior and if some don’t make it we can merge the lobbies together.
