    Going to try something a little different this Saturday.

    CARS.
    3 Different cars, all of them are concept cars. ALL CARS MUST BE "AS BOUGHT" - NO MODIFICATIONS AT ALL (This only becomes a problem if you have made irreversable mods i.e. engine tuning/ weight reduction.)
    The only thing you can do is an oil change. You can of course paint it and change the wheels if you want.
    Tyres are limited to Racing Hard.

    Daihatsu OFC-1 Concept '07 (30k from dealers)
    Isuzu 4200R Concept '89 (300k from dealers)
    Lexus IS F Concept '08 (750k from dealers)

    If anyone has a problem getting cars dont leave it until the last minute as only 1 car can be sent per day.

    TRACKS.
    All tracks will be generated by the game on the night, varying length/complexity/ maybe even add a bit of weather.
    (I dont know how well this works as I havent tried it "live" before but it seemed ok when I tried it Yesterday.)

    EDIT:
    All tracks will be generated from Eifel (weather/time). Due to the tracks being generated as and when we will race them this is how it will work.

    Track1 will be generated - Sections 5 / Complexity 0 we shall then race each car on that track.
    Track2 will be generated - Sections 5 / Complexity 5 we shall then race each car on that track.
    Track3 will be generated - Sections 5 / Complexity 10 we shall then race each car on that track.
    (I know that this is a bit of a bugger having to keep swapping cars but that is easier than having to regenerate the track after every race.)


    I'm am aware that the new NFS will have just been released and some people would rather play there shiney new game, so if you are a regular (or not) please let us know if your going to be playing this on Saturday :thumbup:

    I'll be there and I've earned enough through B spec remote racing to get the cars. :thumbup:

    Would we be allowed to customise the gear ratios for the track if the vehicle allows it? Or is it strictly no changes?

    Nope, but just in case you were trying to wind me up (or go fishing as my other half like to call it when he deliberately winds me up for his amusement), I googled it. It appears that they have pink as a paint option for their Lexus LFA. How cool is that! I would so buy one in real life if I had the money :lol:

    Two things, one when your sandwiched between two cars you have no option but to hit one, two if I slow for a corner and you don't and end up driving on the grass I'm gonna power through if you come back on track and hit me it's your fault not mine.

    Powering up the inside with yourself unable to make a corner and using another player as a barrier will often raise a friendly admonishment. I may have been wide but I was still on the road as you rubbed past me. I don't mind a bit of rubbing but sideways body slams and dirty swipes on straights isn't on. Incidents I found myself on the receiving end of from you on a couple of occasions. No need to get the hump and make snarky posts about though but as I said before you stormed off it's not Burnout.

    Bloody good night of more serious racing. Very hard with us all so evenly balanced. Henrietta was an utter demon with her near perfect performances.

    Thanks for organizing Mick. :thumbup:

    I don't see my post as being snarky I was just making a point I know it's not Burnout and accidents do happen. I was also on the receiving end of some tonight.

    On the the straights I was trying to block you from overtaking as this is a race I don't see an issue.

    When I did hit people and felt it was my fault I was apologising.

    On the last race I was in, I had full lock on in the corner powering through and in my view you were off the road, I could have harsh braked but felt as I was fully on the road I had the racing line.

    I had an ok night as I was making dinner among other things couldn't give it my full attention.
