    Even though it would only be for a day, might be good to add this to the RD Calendar.

    Just ran a few laps offline in each car at Laguna - I've never run any of these cars anywhere before (ie - no experience with GT4's....) The Porsche and Maserati are too uncontrollable for me - big-time understeering with uncatchable (for me, at least) snap oversteer.

    So, although I'm not a fast driver by any means, please put me in the Lotus, which I can halfway control. I like it's expansive view from the cockpit too.

    And since this is only a shakeout and not cutthroat competition, does anyone have a decent setup to share for any of the cars? Or tips on what to adjust to specifically reduce the understeer?

    Oh - and one other question: Why can I not choose different tire compounds for any of these cars? First time I've come across that>

    Looking forward to tomorrow! Thanks!

    I have only logged a few hours on AC and not familiar with how the DLC works. Do I need to buy all DLC that will be running, or only the pack in which contains the car I will be driving. Also does AC use Mods from sources not affiliated with AC, and is Laguna Seca one of them?

    You need all the cars - even those you will not be driving.

    And AFAIK, Laguna Seca came with base game, no?

    I hope this helps.

    Newpert is correct. You will need any dlc used in events even if you are driving a non dlc car.

    Look at steam the season pass *might be the most cost effective route. The factory content is amazing and worth every penny. Sadly the stock content is so lacking we will be using DLC for sure going forward.

    Yeah - I'll be there. Just be patient as I sometimes have difficulty with TeamSpeak.

    @newpert I will be in the ac channel. Ts should be as easy as clicking team speak in the top blue race department banner, then entering the password when prompted. See you in a few

    Thanks so much for taking this on and best of luck going forward. I would have liked to participate but I am still recovering from shoulder surgery and the Doc's tell me I'm out for another 6 weeks. I'll be watching from the sidelines and hopefully can join you all sometime in April.

    Okay, I think I have everything setup for tomorrow. I am not sure if I have to adjust the settings below on my end or if it is set by the server automatically. And if I have to do it on my end, where do I go? I am using Content Manager. Please advise and thanks in advance.

    Previously I had bought the Ultimate Edition, but even at 50% off the Season Pass is currently a lot cheaper. Since we're mostly moved on from AC in some ways, maybe the Pass is better. But if we get some good for West Coast events going, I might be joining regularly if I can keep up. People will be racing AC on servers 20 years from now.:D

    Thanks much for putting this together, I'm West Coast, too. :thumbsup:
