    Also, the Circuit BoP (Balance of Performance) is the small drop down menu to the left of you car tuning setup (where you select the tyres and change aero etc.). We always set this to 'Circuit BoP' for online racing - although the 'Vette isn't massively changed to make it a fair car in N300 class. Whoa, that's another good 1,2 secs of my time. Which I should still be able to manage too...

    Wow! Is that car set up on Circuit BoP? I got to a 1:56.128 and don't see many ways to shave off more than another second at best...

    I'll get one in case I do make it next Tuesday night Which tyres by the way? Sport Medium? I generally run traction control on 2, though occasionally a bit lower or even completely off depending on the car.

    I agree in that the tool itself is a bit cumbersome. But basically directly uploading images through your web browser is awesome. (Even though it didn't accept one of mine properly.) Also, searching for any user-created livery in the pool works quite well

    1) Yes, we usually start at 8:30 and play until 11:00-ish 2) Mazda Roadster (MX-5), any N300, a Gr. 4, Gr. 3 and Gr. 2 car. You can get a Gr. 4 and Gr. 3 easily and for free by signing a contract with any manufacturer in Sport Mode (check the FIA GT Championship). Don't worry about any ramifications, you'll be able to select a new car make every month or so.

    I catch your drift and would hence love to do an N300 race on the Tokyo Expressway

    Woo, thanks for those races again everyone! Great to further explore the possibilities with forced pitstops and manual standing starts Also, here's a money shot for the epic Gr. 2 race we ended with: Great to have you in! Sorry we only stayed for one more when you joined as the rest of us were pretty beat by then. Hope to race you again soon - despite the distance. I always stick BoP on (although it's not possible in Group X) to keep things fair. Personally I sometimes change the aero and gear ratio preset a little bit depending on the track, but these do not equate to massive gains. Same as I accidentally press 'no refuel' on my first stop Sport Mode is the only mode that affects your driving (and safety) ranking. I generally prefer to use rolling starts as that's the way most cars in GT Sport are started in real races, too. Though manual starts are a lot more intense Excellent idea, good way to enhance N class racing for or Tuesday nights. Although my participation next week is unsure due to Gamescom, so I would be glad to pass on this first opportunity to @PeteBrant (Assuming he can play and host next Tuesday with more certainty.)

    As soon as we exceed 8 players on mics during a session, we can split parties. We did this in the Forza days before Microsoft allowed 16-people parties. (Take note, Sony!) Still, mere first world issues if we can get 13+ forumites and friends playing simultaneously again

    Yeah I wasn't intending on setting up 4 N races, but any 2 of those classes - such as a 300 and a 500. I personally like the cars across all 4 groups - will take suggestions if any has a definite favourite. 10 minutes of fixed qualifying sounds alright but may be too short for longer tracks as setting up your car and doing an outlap can already take 5 minutes. Still, I guess a 10 minutes cap could work well to keep things streamlined, too. As for pitstops - consider it a new experiment as said before I'm also inspired by the Daily Race C and would be interested to see how it works with the new tyre model and all.

    Please don't It'll be more fun for all of us if everyone's around with all the races. And we'll do various car classes, tracks and rules to make it appeal to all as a whole

    We'll split our time between some 'regular' N300/N400/N500/N600 races and the 'proper' ones with pitstops in Gr. 3

    By all means bring him in on Tuesdays, I did the same with some Dutch friends The more the merrier - providing they're good sports. And yes, everyone will have to be well aware of the fuel management system for pitstops to work well.

    So having done some endurance racing in Sport Mode and Missions, I'd be interested in trying out pitstops come Tuesday night We can still do 10-lap races, but up the tyre wear and fuel consumption a bit to 'encourage' one or two stops. Especially if we add free choice of hard/medium/soft compounds in the mix, too. It's be an experiment - alongside some N Class races as requested - to see how it works for us. Maybe to be incorporated into a competitive series of sorts, too! The campaign was only added later, seemingly following popular demand. It's classic GT mode in a way, but I much prefer the focus on online multiplayer (both Sport Mode and our private lobbies) - and use the License, Mission and Circuit Modes to hone skills. Also, dynamic weather will follow in the future I think, as well as actual night-time racing - it's only anything fixed from dawn till dusk, now You can already experience some damp track action in various Mission Mode assignments, too. Keep practicing Looking forward to adding you to the lobby come Tuesday night!

    Decided to get kitted up properly. Need the sponsorship now that the competition during our Tuesday racing nights is ramping up
