    I was going to ask you about the tyres as I don't believe you need cars to dodge to get laps down.

    When you film your race for the SkeagRacingSchool please turn up the sound.

    Adorable car :cheers:
    A charm to drive with .... or without " respect " , will never let you down in terms of handling and driveability.


    At last a weight went of my shoulders for no tune throwback i was .
    With the proper tyres this time and an idea that is a bit more to come according ghost first turn.
    But not today anyway .

    No tune

    I know this is from GT5, but still an ugly thing to own

    Good morning guys .
    The day off that i had from the game on Sunday proved " good " for me .
    Being late from work yesterday ,at the end i had only 40 minutes till Mary's favourite series start on tv.
    So i try to practice a bit on school lesson to see how can i get through the frustrating AI .
    Did 5 races leaving aside the " fast and furious " mod that usually have at the end i did it to win this untouched and with a smile on my face instead of this
    tenor (6).gif
    Its quite common on gt 300 & 500 series ( also at La Sarthe ) to get hit by AI without be your responsibility and all of you that you will try this school round ,i guess you know what am talking about.
    To cut a long story short , am quite happy end up needing only car wash and not further body repairs .
    The non " warm fingers" and the lazy mod was on ,pay me off .

    I haven't really sat down with the no-tune yet, but my housemate (Dallas) has been plugging away like crazy - this sort of fast twitchy racing is right up his street. Just to confirm.. this is not my entry, but Dallas leaves my racing pit for a few weeks and he is chuffed to have a competitive time on our illustrious challenge. So I promised I would post it here. 20201201_221213.jpg 20201201_221035.jpg
    I am not expecting Dallas's time to be recognised on the leaderboard, but I am working on him to get a rig/account of his own. Lets face it, you could prob get a Logitech wheel and pedals, PS, GT6, and a single telly all for under £100 now. I have said I will build him a rig.

    Hi all. Hope you are enjoying Noel's school. I really can't drive fast anymore since I got off this drug from the VA called Lyrica. It is a demon drug from hell. I went through a year of the most horrible withdrawals and still am not exactly right. Can't drive in real life either. So that is why I haven't been around.
    I have enjoyed helping Noel and sincerely appreciate the inquiries on my behalf.

    @Racin510s I don't know you - I'm new here, but sorry to hear you are not able to drive ATM. Stay strong.

    @smoothbore12 I don't know what you are doing on your ceiling, but it looks all shades of wrong to me.

    @Failmaster21 Count me in for the GP legends whenever. Happy to pair with anyone/race in any team. Looking forward to it.

    I have had a go at the no-tune (inspired by Dallas). This is a genuine Fifth Element time. There is at least a half a second of meat on the bone I think*.

    I will count Dallas's time to the leader board, tell him to get a GTP account.

    It's so good to see your name here again mate, keep fighting.

    Times like this just might see you in Div 1 next round.

    I don't feel worthy of Div 1. Past performance indicates I have a niche, specifically: TT no-tunes. I am not much cop on anything else though. Put other cars on the track..... not so good! Unfortunately, because of PD/sony's premature killing of the servers, I don't know if I am crap against ALL other cars or just AI cars. By an accident of timing, I have never actually sim-raced live against another human being.

    I have raced other people in real life. Both on the track and elsewhere (gotta watch what I say :lol:).

    I am probably in the unique position of being a semi competent driver who has never raced against anyone else on a sim. Ever. My need is great.

    I THINK I would be OK at it because I can be very consistent and keep my nerve/cool when under pressure. I also like to think I can foresee other peoples' behaviour (I play "World of Tanks" which is very reliant on predicting how other humans will react). But I don't KNOW!

    @bjl23 Dallas will be made up that you will include his time. Thank you. I think this gesture will go a long way to help recruitment!

    And here is one lap from TT mod that's way more than what GT 300 AI opponents can handle.

    PS

    I dunno, write up the contract and I'll show it to my manager!

    of course I am! Everyone knows red paint gives you an extra few BHP. Physics innit!

    All the manufacturers have a suit. So they get used in the Arcade Mode. In Free Run you'd keep your suit but in some GT6 update they changed it, so that it doesn't enforce rules, and any lap is "accepted".

    "...."


    ok -self-censored. Might have been a tad too creative for the tastes of "ears less bawdy than mine" here - sorry.

    It was certainly unexpected, but I don't care too much. I made a bondage joke earlier, so don't sweat it.
