    Gracias, señor [Yes, we speak Portuguese in Brazil, I'm just trying to be confusing]

    I'll check them out and be ready for tomorrow so I don't screw up the NASCAR fun like last week.


    Will people be on tonight for some racing? I might get my headset today (from a friend) and wanted to see if this is working out and possible connection issues with server outside, etc.

    Just put the Power/ Engine setting to 50.0 and you'll be okay. This is what we're runing and they aren't too dificult to drive.
    PS: The nascar vehicles ONLY come with racing hard. Purchase additional tires to your preferendce

    Don't buy it if you don't have to. You can get one for free if you get half of the stars in IA races in single player.

    I haven't been playing a lot of career mode, so I'm still a couple dozen stars short.
    I'll buy it so I can run it tomorrow and I'll sell whatever I get later. Money is not that big of a deal at this point...

    If money is no object, just get the one that you like then. Just so you know, only the new NASCARS are in the dealership, the older ones are in the Recommended Cars section.
    P.S. do you know who Max, Igor,Paulo Jr. and Andreas are?

    I'll check it out when I get home.

    And are those the old original Sepultura members? If not, no, I don't know them.

    Why are you on GTP, when you should be on GT6?

    Isn't that Sepultura's first or second album?
    And I happen to have met them actually. Not because the country is tiny, but a cousin of mine used to go to school with Max and Igor way back when.

    OFFICIAL TRANSCRIPT FOR 4-3-2014 EVENTS
    Since this is a new event, thought i'd list some base stats for the NASCAR 2ND TIER setup we're running.
    VEHICLE: Chevy, Ford, Toyota NASCAR
    PP: 540
    HP: 445
    WEIGHT: 1565 (minimum)

    NOTE: In future NASCAR 2ND TIER events, we may be running ballast which will increase the vehicle weight (and also effect the balance either positive or negatively) so feel free to experiment with this tonight.

    That is really cool. I grew up listening to Sepultura. Troops of Doom is on Schizophrenia, their second album.

    And Tarkus unveiled the new feature of online rooms: kicking out the leader who's having way too much fun. I'M STILL NOT AMUSED!!!!
    That was the worst dropped connection. So frustrating...
    Although I did get to experience the power of the commentary jinx. As soon as I got back on and decided to commentate, I started to say JJG was the leader and he immediately spun out. Sorry about that, JJG...

    It was tons of fun to race you nice gents again (this time with a headset), all over the world.
    Hope to see you all next week.

    The best was when everyone agreed to start the race and you were promptly kicked out, but we couldn't cancel the start of the race. Perfect timing of the wrong sort....
    High comedy.
