    Great idea for a thread. Now I know where to go if I want to 1v1.

    Nah, he's only interested in doing unfair races, his words, not mine :p

    Also, if anyone wants a race, I'd be happy to, sounds like it could be good fun and practice :)

    It's a shame, but you know, his name, which looks like something a 5-year-old made up, already explains what he's like. No way to play fair game with that guy. :dopey:

    That sounds perfect:tup:.

    So:
    Stage 3 engine, no turbo
    570pp
    497hp
    What tires?

    And @rcb929 I just checked and a C7 has 876hp fully tuned. Do you want to switch to RH, lower the power, or keep it the same?

    Awesome idea and thread :D

    Just a though on the recording of the races, as they are short races (less than the maximum export length) you should be able to export the replay and send it over for recording :idea:

    Yeh I know. But I'm not really offering up a 'get your replays up on youtube' type service :lol:

    Besides, being in the room just saves people having to faff around exporting and transferring and uploading etc.

    Remember, the idea here is not 'upload any old race replay to youtube' but to 'take part in close, clean competitive racing with someone with whom you are equally skilled'. The video part is just the bonus, and that's only if the races are really close, like the one in the video on the OP :tup:

    Have you got anyone in mind you'd like to take on in a VERSUS challenge?

    I wasn't trying to imply that's what you are doing, more that the vs races would still need to be organised in the same manner, but could take place on the drivers timetable if needed and the replay sent for the video to be made (As you mentioned, we are all in different timezones, so linking up might become an issue and there is a way around it), but the reasoning and organizing of the race to remain the same.

    As for me doing a vs race, I spend only time I have to for practice and races I am already confirmed for on GT these days, just don't enjoy this game anymore, so am on for as little time as I can be :(

    OK no worries - I got the wrong end of the stick there I think. You make a good point.

    Well, I'll be seeing you on track at some point perhaps for the upcoming Spa24 instead then.
