    Let us know what you think.
    Since there is an option to "Lock Cockpit View", same as using Assists it was decided by the Game Developers that it is an Advantage to run Any Other View, compared to other drivers in Cockpit/Helmet View. The Scientific results are still out on this, but I can tell you it's more of a Challenge to run in Helmet or Cockpit view. I've been told my several drivers that they would be interested in running Cockpit view, but only if it was locked in for everyone so not to give an advantage to any one driver. With the advent of the Crew Chief we now have a spotter now, something we didn't have before.

    I've been practicing with cockpit view, but I am definitely about a second slower. If I am forced to race in cockpit mode then it is what it is. I still like nose view better.

    Well If it's forced, it will be forced for everyone, Spiff. Once you get used to it I think you will like it. With the Spotter you don't really have to worry about wheel to wheel vision anymore.

    Out of curiosity, why is it an issue all of a sudden with 3 races left?

    Well, BigDaddy was the reason I made all view available in the first place. He's since told me he would drive cockpit view as long as everyone else did. Like you he says he's about a second slower in that view. It's just another challenge to try

    Please list some Idea's of what you guys would like to see in the future. I had thought about running a Spec Car series (GT1 RUF, Renault RS.01), Possibly an LMP/LMP2, or another Season of GT3/GT4 with different tracks. Perhaps we can incorporate all of these ideas. Like a short series and then a longer summer series bringing the GT cars back.

    I would love a short spec series then a long gt series in the summer. Maybe run the spec series with the default setup.

    You could even set the short series up as a voting for the car and track. The day after the race pick 3 classes and 2 tracks and we vote on what we want to run for the next race. When a track and car (or car class) is ran it is taken off the list.

    I also wouldn't mind running a series with the older historic cars on shorter tracks.

    May have a couple weeks in between series. And depending on how things fall some races may have flexible dates. I'm still trying to put my house on the market and build a new one.

    Well I'm hoping for a March or April start date if we run another season of GT3's w/ GT4's. Also it would be different tracks. My hopes are to have some new GT cars to add to the mixx. Meanwhile a shorter series of spec cars would be a much needed break.

    I'd like to keep this Group of Drivers together. Some of the best I've raced with. Assetto Corsa is set to come out around April 22nd. That game is going to be Epic, and we may have to create a new series in that game.
    It has Ferrari :thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup: and real tracks :thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup:
