    Well no. I read there was a new glitch where the previous one was reversed.

    Haven't had that confirmed. This true @TDZdave ? Your N24 lobby, you and Scott may have found that?

    It's called less fuel.

    You'll find that the tires the cars come with are too grippy more often than not. For example, based on skid pad data, I've found that the McLaren F1 should come on CM tires.

    To be honest, it's probably just to make the cars more drivable for beginners. Try driving the F1 on CM tires, it's tough just to keep it on the track. I know in GT5P PD released a thing suggesting the correct tires for each car.

    I just got back from a test session with timed races and I am happy to report that PD has done good here. You can finally finish a lap down in an online race and you cannot finish your race until the winner finishes theirs. It's all correct to how it's done in real life.

    If the tire glitch is fixed now, endurance races will finally become viable in GT6.

    Edit: Apologies to Furi about not making any races in this past WSC, but I was busy and the tire glitch made me wary of this type of racing.

    If we set it to a 2hr 30min race, Daytona will be around 2hrs 24min with the pace lap included.

    Unfortunately, 2h30min isn't possible. The options go 10 min, 15 min, 20 min, 25 min, 30 min, 40 min, 50 min, 60 min, 90 min, 2 hours, 3 hours, 4 hours, and so on with every hour up to 24.

    Personally, I'd rather the option for a 75, 105 or 150 minute race over the frankly nearly-useless options for 17 or 19 hour race.

    Something for PD to work on for a future update then? (The ability to adjust the duration of Endurance/Timed races to times like 72 or 144 minutes.)

    I would also like to see the 2x Rolling start for non-Oval tracks included as a option in a future update as well.

    I wonder if Furi's Sunday test will involve the return of the GTE series.

    If everyone is up for it we could glitch it in.

    Might not be WSC-related, but I'm wondering if this has to do with a car that was ahead of Vision GT's time...

    I'm thinking it has something to do with LM cars as they all cost between 1.7m and 2.2m

    I can't afford to waste 2.2m unless its a series that is actually going to happen.

    5/6 week one, part of the FRL summer extravaganza! I'll reveal more in the FRL thread....

    And NO, not a Red Bull.

    Tried that earlier. It's mostly LMP cars, and the closest to 2.2m is the Sauber Mercedes C9.
