    Best choice. But obviously you gotta be very careful and know which cars you want to join in the race.
    One common mistake I see is hosts only setting an HP restriction. Just bring a lightweight car and boom, you smoke the competition.

    For race cars restricting horsepower, weight & class is generally good enough. I wish there was a way to allow setup changes but allow upgrades, or an option to ban specific upgrades like turbo.

    For road cars it can be very tricky to setup balanced races if you want something that other than one-make races. I generally use stock cars, restrict by horsepower, weight, drivetrain, and tyres, and depending on the car I ban tuning too.

    Got a little story here.

    So yesterday, I was trying to find some decent lobbies for getting gameplay. I happened across a 700PP LMP lobby that appeared clean.

    As soon as I joined, the PP was raised to 750 and it was set to Sarthe II (great.). I got out my LM55 and loaded its top speed tune. The race starts and I get a head start. We enter the first corner, someone hits me. As I'm spinning I see one of the three R10s fly through the chicane. Great, this was a dirty lobby. After we get to the other side of Sarthe (and one too many jostles) I got ticked off and just told off the drivers.

    Got kicked out as I was leaving the track (My GT takes upwards of 40 seconds...) and simply said thank you to the host.

    So I got a bit salty, but one of the host's friends decided to be a 14 year old and sent me a PSN message.

    Why is it that I can't help but read this in the voice of Jar-Jar Binks from Star Wars?

    "Quick Match Rhapsody" by TeamCZRRacing - adapted from Bohemian Rhapsody by Queen


    Is this the real life?

    Is this just fantasy?

    Caught in a Quick Match

    No escape from reality

    Open your eyes

    Look up to the screen and see

    I'm just a clean driver, I need no sympathy

    Because I'm easy come, easy go

    A little high, little low

    Anyway the race goes, doesn't really matter to me, to me



    Mama, just reported a man

    He put his bumper to my back

    “Had no brakes,” and now I’m dead

    Mama, race had just begun

    But now he’s gone and thrown it all away

    Mama, ooo

    This idiot smashed me off

    If I don’t ragequit this time tomorrow

    Carry on, carry on, as if nothing really matters



    Too late, the race is done

    Sends shivers down my spine

    Knuckles aching all the time

    Goodbye everybody I've got to go

    Gotta leave you all behind to race each other

    Mama, ooo (anyway the race goes)

    I don't want to die

    I sometimes wish I'd never been born at all



    I see a little silhouetto of a man

    Scaramouch, scaramouch will you do the Gran T’rismo

    Dirty drivers and lightning very very frightening me

    Gallileo, Gallileo,

    Gallileo, Gallileo,

    Gallileo Figaro - magnifico



    But I'm just a clean driver and nobody loves me

    He's just a clean driver from a nice family

    Spare him his life from this monstrosity

    Easy come easy go will you let me go

    Bismillah! No we will not let you go - let him go

    Bismillah! We will not let you go - let him go

    Bismillah! These races are too short let me go

    Will not let you go let me go (never)

    Never let you go let me go

    Never let me go ooo

    No, no, no, no, no, no, no

    Oh mama mia, mama mia, mama mia let me go

    Beelzebub has a game mode put aside for me

    For me

    For me



    So you think you can smash me and spit in my eye

    So you think you can crash me and leave me to die

    Oh baby can't do this to me baby

    Just gotta get out just gotta get right outta here



    Ooh yeah, ooh yeah

    Nothing really matters

    Anyone can see

    Nothing really matters nothing really matters to me



    Anyway the race goes

    I'm just a poor boy
    With a ten second penalty...
    Cause I'm easy in
    Keep the flow
    But you've come from high
    Down to low

    EDIT:

    Anyway the hairpin goes,
    Doesn't really matter...
    Too deep
    Tooooo deep



    @TeamCZRRacing You've found a gold mine!

    Joined a realistic cruise room recently, instantly have two people pointing out my 1jz sound swapped rx7 fd. Claiming I'm a noob, cheating and ruining the game for everyone else... :odd:

    Ah. Memories of the GT5 days where people treated you like the scum of the earth just for driving a car with a chassis swap...

    A drunk Irishman on Tokyo yelling insults at anyone who made contact or overtook him. Not to mention the fact that he was using an army green HSV-010 with nitro in a 600pp race.

    What bugs me the most is the jerks in the quick matches that seem to have figured out the parts of the cars they can ram with and not get a penalty. I've seen more than a few, usually in GSX/R's that can give someone a huge punt and keep in going.

    You can put nitro in an HSV-010?

    Last time I checked you can put it on any non-electric car in the game.

    The HSV-010 doesn't have a nitrous option if I recall correctly. For him to have that means he's done some... illegal activities.

    Yes, he was going ungodly fast on the straights, and I was using a highly competitive racecar. I forget which one though

    You can put nitrous into any car that isn't electric or is a racing car.

    It was probably my SLS GT3 or something close to that.
