    The V8 Series races with the JL G-09 model used by all teams in the series is made of a tubular chassis, covered by fiber glass bodywork shaped as a Chevrolet Sonic or Peugeot 408 car models, but with identical performance.

    Powered by a V8 engine with 520 HP, 6-speed transmission and total weight rounding up to 1320 kg, the car can reach speeds of up to 270 km/h.

    The vehicles are equiped with a so called “push –to-pass” system: Just like in the real series, the player can configure a button to boost the engine power in 50 HP for a few seconds, in order to assist overtaking other cars during race sessions.

    The V8 Series is ideal for top-top racing, three days a week!

    Schedule
    The V8 server will be online all week for practicing. The server is setup with an extended first practice session of 165 minutes. Please only use this practice session when racing online for fun, do not vote it round unless being asked to do so.

    Its not a hard one to learn so i am sure you'll be fine. Right, right, right, right = one lap :)
     
  4. Yeah, it was that one, I thought Brasilia was some other track. :D

    I am rather surprised to see that the Stock Car was very manageable with 0 rear wing. What do you guys run as for wing settings? I think 2 is what I'll take...
