  3. mmmh @Saleem Hodge ... mass exodus? :D
    Well... honestly I'm not even a 100% sure I'll be able to race tonight... so I guess it's to the next one?

    Yeah it's looking like that. Just noticed no one really wanted to drive this. It was fun last time we ran it at Mugello. I'll be on tonight regardless.

    For me at least, 30 laps in this car, or any road car for that matter, is past the point of fun, and just tedious... I'm also not crazy about the car itself tbh.

    Just my two cents.

    The S3 is really a race car with no down-force.

    I know, just not to my taste, is all. :)
  8. Kind of agree with Joao (about the lenght).
    Maybe 15-20 laps would be the best option... There's more possibility for duels too.
    Or maybe with 15 laps there's space for a Race 1 - Race 2 event ;)

    You guys have to let me know these things:(. Nothing is set in stone.

    We could do two sprint races instead with a short practice and qualifying.

    @Joao M Alves you have to remember that we are here to try different cars out. We can't always challenge for the win. Sometimes driving a car that isn't your first choice will allow others to be competitive as well:thumbsup:.

    Saleem, I'm not moaning or asking you to change it, just giving my point of view. I know that others enjoy this and other cars, but I simply don't. Nothing more, nothing less. ;)

  12. Yep! That's why I said that! ;)
    Aaaaand I'm definitely pro-trying new car/tracks. After all we should try to get use to them before the final release is out and the official US league will start! :whistling: :cool:

    I know your not but your a regular and not every race is going to be something that brings the biggest smile to your face. We would still like people to join in on races that are with cars that aren't their cup of tea. That will allow other people who enjoy it more the benefit of having a larger grid. I only get to schedule two races a week that I can join and it was both days GT3. I love the GT3 but I would love to enjoy more of the cars. But people don't sign up when it isn't the cars they like the most. So I and others never get the satisfaction of being competitive.

  14. If I may... I'd suggest a traditional and standard poll. so we can pinpoint what could be the next combo events... excluding the GT3 weekely night ;)

    We tried that before and not many people vote lol. We could do it again but I really fear that this sim is becoming pidgin holed. It has so many amazing vehicles and the only way to get a decent grid is with a handful of cars, if that.
  16. I probably wasn't a member yet when that happened so I might have missed the poll. Maybe a new one won't hurt...especially now we've taken out the argument...

    It's simple really. I love this car, but 31 laps is too many for a car like this.
    12-17 is the sweet spot. :thumbsup:

    Just seen that it's been changed to 2 x 15 lap races.

    Yeah I changed it. But no one said hey its too freaking long. They just don't sign up :(.

    four people just isn't enough to race. Looks like another night of server hoping.
