If you would rather not build and tune the cars for Season 3, they are shared off of my game tag GTDon2, or search for the word Sonoma.  All 8 car builds are shared with a good tune for Sonoma NASCAR.  Brake pressures are stock or close to stock.  The tuning is well suited for wheel users, with a bias towards light understeer and somewhat slower chassis rotation.  See you Saturday for the opening round!

Week 2

Post by GTDon2 on Sun Jan 07, 2018 3:35 pm

It's interesting to see everyone amp up their serious meter with this event even though it is only a semi-serious event.  Tensions seem to be increasing each week leading up to ratings weeks.  Next Saturday is a rated event as well as the one after that.  Because of this response, it becomes necessary to implement additional rules.  In particular, if you have a microphone problem in the future, and can't hear anything, you'll have to go to the back at the start.

There has to be a certain amount of coordination and cooperation or things can become frustrating. Thumbs has apologized for his profane outburst in this regard and we accept his apology.  In the future please try to remain patient as this will help the situation.

Next weeks car line up with Morbids scary Charger and Cadillac are going to be very tough. These are street cars, and not the light and precise full down force NSX and RX7.  These are big heavy cars with huge power and little traction even with TCS, the exact opposite kind of cars to what we just drove.  So if you thought the full racing slicked RX7 and NSX were slippery, you are in for a rude surprise. You will want to practice these cars since this is a ratings week. Chances are very good that there will be even more contact and going off track in these behemoths than in any cars this season. Good luck.

As for the race, GTDon2 took the pole in His NSX with a 1:18.421, and won race 1 by a fair margin after sameole24 and Kevin got tangled up in various traffic jams/contact.  This gave GTDon a fair margin for race 2 of 7.322sec over Kevin.

Race 2 reverse order grid had it's share of bumps and bruises after we finally got going.  This allowed Kevin and GTDon a clear field to get to the front.  Kevin led in his NSX while GTDon was about a second back in his RX7 until on about lap 11 the curse of Cortana interrupted Kevin's race sending him off track and handing GTDon another win and Championship!  Congrats to him, again.  Fastest lap of the meet went to GTDon in his NSX with a 1:17.927.  Fastest RX7 lap was Kevin with a 1:18.418.

#1 GTDon2

Due to a work schedule change I'm moving the start time up to 6:00pm CST, otherwise I won't be able to race. Thanks, real life!

Week 3

Post by GTDon2 on Sun Jan 14, 2018 1:52 pm

Due to real-world work rudely creeping into the virtual world of fun, we have had to move the start time up to 6pm CST.  Because of this many of you were caught unaware and could not make it to the race. Sorry about that.

We did have some new fast faces show thanks to Tak.  Made it for a crowded battle at the front between, Morbid, Volcano, Tak, Nelly, and GTDon.  

The racing was really quite good as everyone was doing a masterful job of wrangling these beasts and keeping off each other's paints.  Volcano, in particular, was amazing and we applaud his driving skill! Morbid was his usual clean self, as was Tak and Nelly.  

To lug cars this heavy and fast around a small track was like a NASCAR race, only worse. lol Truth is the cars were challenging but fun.  

Having driven a real Charger Hellcat I can say it was very similar, except that the real car seemed a lot more planted and stable with better brakes.  Would be more like had we installed full width racing slicks on the Forza car.  The real car is exceedingly fast, and yet nimble for its size.  It could be a case of just exceeding the limits with the virtual car in a way that could not be done with the real car I suspect.  I could never flog the real car quite like the virtual car. I value my personal safety.

That being said we'd like to congratulate Morbid for finally collecting a much deserved Saturday Night Runoff's Championship!  Having had perhaps the worst luck of anyone while leading, Morbid finally secured the overall win by just 2.232sec!  Volcano nearly spoiled it for Morbid after grabbing the pole with a blistering 1:23.084 in his Charger, and then winning race 1 with Morbid close behind in his Charger Hellcat, and GTDon in 3rd in the CTS-V.

Reverse order grid race 2 would see a three way battle to the end with Morbid leading in the CTS-V, Volcano close behind in his CTS-V, and GTDon in the Charger.  On the last lap Volcano lost control and practically went off the track over the hump allowing GTDon to take 2nd place while setting the fastest lap of the event in his Hellcat with a smoking 1:22.797!

Honorable mention goes to Nelly in 4th overall, and condolences to Tak for having a busted event after lagging out on the last lap of the first race.  Morbid feels your pain.

Fastest lap in the CTS-V Morbid 1:23.442


Fastest lap of the meet GTDon2 1:22.797 Charger Hellcat

Week 3 Champion, Ix Morbid xI


All things considered, it was the less sophisticated Dodge Charger Supercharged Hemi Hellcat that proved to be slightly faster than the more delicate and luxurious Caddy.  And all was right, with the world again. lol
