    This is the area for discussing the creation of all the guidelines for the Spot Race Challenge, for any upcoming challenges that anyone wants to announce to other people and general Spot Race banter.

    So, to kick things off........Leo, you have now joined Holdenboy on my 'list' of people to challenge in the future. :sly:

    I don't know, I figured if Kent has rules in mind I'd just follow whatever he makes and be happy.

    Let him set the rules, that's fine with me.....we can still discuss about it in here though Holdenboy. Am I right about that?? :) Keeping it seperate from the Tuner Challenge thread because it's a different ongoing thing (and Leo will be complaining about us chocking up another 10 pages of that thread with our last debate). ;)

    Nah, I prefer to do it in baby steps. :sly: You first, then Grey if I can beat ya. ;)

    But this is after mine and Holdenboy's grudge race. So, let's get something going with this. I'll have a car up sometime after the TCv3 results (just re-testing RJ's car)......so it should be by tomorrow I'll dish up something you can take on. :mischievous:

    I've been asking that same question for a while =drifting24/7=. A free trip to someones house for a 2P battle sounds like the best idea. :lol:

    Mafs, why arent I on your list? :(

    wish I could, I have long wanted to battle a highly-skilled opponent at GT4, so that I could continue to improve my driving skills.., :sly:

    *The list*
    Holdenboy
    Leo
    roj

    HAPPY?? :p

    As for time posting, get independent person to test or if they can't, both players put their best times with BOTH cars. Kind of what Holdenboy and RJ were going to do with their VTC Club Racers.

    So this thread stands as a way to challenge somebody to a spot race?

    Judging by this post I guess you will still be around occasionally :dopey:

    Edit: Yes GT90210, and some time there is meant to be a proper thread opening where there will be lap records with a full list posted of who is the fastest on a given track. (Who's car is the fastest rather)

    What about if 1 guy challenges another to a race with say, a hp cap or a budget cap just to race him without telling any settings untill after. Basically what I'm saying is a freelance spot race thread. Wander in, see whos there, issue a challenge, go race.

    Well then maybe we can kick it off eh?

    How about a 1.8L NB Miata race at Tsukaba. 2 laps, lowest cumulative time wins. Only mods are BBC, FC Trans, whatever engine stuff you want to get to 165 max.

    Hows that sound? Use tonight/wednesday to tune, thursday run our "official" laps and clock in.

    165hp?? If it's that small, all it needs then is an oil change!! :lol: Especially if you have an 1800RS like I do. :cool:

    @ dimplz - You're only going to be on once a month from now on?? :odd: So I take it that like the menstrual cycle, you're going to be GTP's monthly 'visitor'!! :p

    *still waiting to see what race dimplz is going on about*

    I'm game.

    Won't win due to me being a quite SLOW driver, but hey... I can try!

    :idea:

    What about a ladder style knockout format?? That way there's head to head battles the whole way through. The category for each level can be set and everyone follow that basic rule and face eachother head to head.

    eg. With this MX5/Miata idea......get everyone to build one up, race against each other in head to head battles. Winners of battles progress to next round. New category picked. Repeat cycle until there is only 1 tuner standing. :tup::mischievous: Like a 'KING OF TUNERS' type of thing.
