We are only adding Race Breaks, Race Driveshaft, and Race Rims where applicable...
This^^ is a million percent true. the stock tunes for the cars are amazing and extremely easy to drive with no assists (as in I can only get it to drift if I REALLY want it to). I tested multiple cars, but I went with the BMW just so I could put that on the rear bumper haha Very Happy . Of course, I had to mess around with the tune settings a bit and I think I made my BMW a little easier to drive around Road America at least. I'm not quite finished with it though, but when I am done, I would be willing to gift my setup to anybody who wants it.

Anyway, my suggestion for this series is to get rid of as many assists as you can while still feeling comfortable. If you still use traction control, stability control, or ABS, this is a great opportunity to start driving without it. The cars grip the tarmac better than any production car in the game with only a few minor spasms here and there, so you would only be losing time by using TCS and STM with how controlling those assists are. Also, after a little practice, those carbon ceramic brakes are a million times better without ABS so you will be able to brake much later without overshooting the corners.

Because...  You had the fastest lap...  Just marking it...  It's not a bad thing, and I should probably change it to Green...  Wink

Ah, I see.

However, is there any specific reason as to why the Lamborghini is the only car who isn't allowed to install brakes?

Cause it doesn't have that upgrade available... OR that could have been an oversight...  If it does have that upgrade available, then it's allowed..

The only days that really fit my schedule is tuesday and saturday night, as it starts 4am my time. Though, I could make an exception with a load of coffee

Hey guys....  Sorry about missing last saturday..  This week's been NUTS...  I've had calls every other night with our Asia Pacific Offices...

I will also be out of town this Saturday night (The wife is dragging me to Knoxville to the UT home opener)..

We could do a double header on Sunday...  Or maybe make up week 2 Sunday night and then a Makeup for week 3 on Monday night...?

I think this is a pretty good idea. Maybe we can do a separate thread for it as a fun little club challenge

those laps were flying laps. I'm just not that good to post those times from a standing start.

I was going to try to beat it last night, but I got caught up in some rivals racing and forgot all about it

Hahaha I was thinking about turning the braking line off to see how difficult it would be to beat your times then, but I figured I would just keep slamming into walls
