Is anyone arranging races on Thursdays at the minute, or are we waiting for the updates?  :beta:
We still get together on Thursdays.  Some of us were together last Thursday and yesterday.   Mainly driving the FX in different tracks though yesterday we did a GT3 !   (Skanda saying under his breath STF!).  :grin:

That 98T is a lot of fun. Good racing last night. I even enjoyed the GT3!

It looks awesome leg!  You are advancing like our very own Matt in PC1!  I like your psychological warfare with the flashing headlights making the fellow in front loose concentration.   :grin:

Thank you bud!  Yea, the more I play with the video editor, the more I like it, even though I hardly get any views, I still enjoy watching them myself lol

lol, nah not at all!  I was lucky to get through the pack like I did and you were never that far ahead, it was a pretty close bunch for the first couple of laps.  I got in your slip stream....and then, yea.  Well, you still beat me!! lol

At this point we are getting a feel of different cars so we can arrive to some decision of what we should drive in the next season whenever it happens.  So far we have tested some promising cars like the Fx and the Lotus Turbo.  I have done runs with the Lotus 78 which I like for its simplicity and yet raw handling, also nice engine sound.  Yesterday I did some practice with the Alpine A442B though it is not a true open cockpit I decided to try it for the hell of it and because I like its looks.  Today, I will probably try something else.   You fellows are welcome to recommend a car and track for Wednesday and Thursday.   So let's hear what you want to do.

Something more simple makes sense to me - mainly because the lower end cars work better and would promote closer racing.

My max level for consistent playability only stretches to some, but not all, of the GT3 cars.

OTOH GT Sport works a perfect treat for what it intended and it doesn't seem to matter what cars you pick, you have a nose-to-tail race with everyone. :)

Well i tried the 98T when i first had the game and could not do an outlap! I am hoping this was a ffb issues or a setup bug as I used to love the 98T on p cars 1. But i have not tried again since and I've mainly stuck with the low end gt cars and I'm having a blast. Had some more good races with Legacy again last night in random lobby's in the GT3's and GT1's. Was taken back by the F50! that was a nice car to drive. I also love the caterham SP/300R you can just push it so much compared to some cars on the game. Another car i liked was the bmw 2002 i mistakenly entered a race at spa classic in the rain. Was a fun combo tbf although the track was very long and straight lol. I wont make any Wednesdays races for a while but might get in on some of the Thursday races.

EDIT: Also how are you getting on with the pad? Are you not tempted to get a new wheel yet? I have been looking at the Fanatec's mainly for the pedal set tbf  but trying to justify £600 on a toy is hard lol.

I am waiting for at least two more weeks to see if I get favorable news for cronusmax in regards to their drivehub device.   I can not really say much but they are working behind the scenes for possible T100 compatibility.  And yes, the controller is a pain and I am getting better with it but not enough for a decent pace yet.  Perhaps, I can get a tutorial from our drift king Dennis.    :grin:    The way he drives the cars are very reminiscent of how Alonso drove the Renault; I remember how David Hobbs would make comments in reference of the way Alonso would just crank the wheel with the supposedly tricky tires of those years where they did not like abuse. :sign0098:

I did a race at Monza in LMP900. Those lites and LMP cars are fun.
