    Just ignore what I said. It made as much sense as a Chicken talking to a Chocolate Orange.

    I'm being serious when saying this; Those NASCAR's aren't really meant to go around a right corner, let alone a flat one.

    But saying that, I have been doing testing they handle surprising well around right corner

    Hi RD chaps. I just signed up to be able to post this message. I was looking for some new race ideas for my clan and stumbled across RD. Might you be interested in fielding a team of drivers to start a bitter rivalry : )
    We've been having some connection issues too, to comment on your recent posts, but are muddling through, too keen to race to be put off by some bad comms. and occasional bootings.
    We have eight or so regulars of varied abilities who meet every week on Fridays. Hoping you'll accept this gauntlet with good humour. Clean and fair racing is our aim :)

    :) Yes, exactly, Stuart. My chaps need a little more reason to concentrate, and chat less!!

    We could take it in turns to provide race specs. PP, tyres, track, etc... leaving a week or two for practice and preparation. 5 or 6 drivers in each team.
    Emphasis on clean racing ... that sort of thing.

    Great. We've one excellent driver, 3 or 4 'pretty goods' and some rising talent. 4 or 5 of us use the Logitech Driving Force GT wheel.
    We'd mean to have fun and a little banter but beating you lot would be very pleasing!

    Why don't you guys join in on some of the rd events? we could do with a few more regulars. There's the current time trial - would be nice to see more times posted - then there'll be more events posted soon no doubt, and there is the up and coming gt500 league.

    Our grid was a bit thin a while back but we have a good bunch of regulars now.
    We're running an Historics series at the moment which shadows the F1 season; an hour long race on the Friday before each Grand Prix.
    I've posted a link to this thread in one of our threads (in fact I'll go and start a specific one, GoM vs. RD), and am more than happy for any of our chaps to take part in your events, of course.
    But rather than do some kind of merger my thought was that by having a series of fixtures between us, both clans would benefit from the inter clan competition.
    A GT500 league would certainly go down well as an idea amongst us lot but I'm thinking that specific races, maybe once a month will ignite some extra passion within each of our grids.
    Perhaps we could start with a 'friendly' race day meeting?
    Any non GP Friday would suit us, other nights could be planned for no doubt.
    Assuming you might go for this, what nights would suit you?
    I'll go and set up that thread on our site and post a link back here.
    Perhaps Stuart or one of your chaps could join our clan just so as to be able leave messages?
    Wishing you failure in every clan match, Jim : )

    Right, lets kick start this thread again..

    I've posted a couple of events that require DLC, admittedly the DLC that costs 5euros. Would everyone be happier with the most recent released DLC?

    imho - probably best to 'strike while the iron is hot' on the DLC, i.e. - post an event a week or two after release to capture enthusiasm. Definitely a good idea to offer DLC events, why not - there's plenty of standard events.
    I'm itching for SPA action :sneaky:

    Thanks for your feedback mate :)

    O yeah, Spa is a classic :) When I do an event on Spa car will have to be something that can do 160+
