That's is based on Abdul's idea from here. I will update the first post with everyone's laptimes. Each round closes on Sunday:) The server is set with 7hours of qualies.

You are allowed to change the setup.

Server name: RACEDEPARTMENT SNS
Password: usual club password.

Cars: Audi R8 - Peter Duivelaar
Track: Pau - Ariff Roose
Weather: Dry


Basic rules:
  • Whoever is the fastest at the end of the week picks a car to run for the following week
  • Whoever finishes last picks the track for the following week.
  • The same person can't pick the track/car 3 weeks in a row. In the case that occurs, the 2nd line will choose the mod
  • Tracks and mods have to be either game default or located in RD's download section

Hi, guys: yesterday night i was at Oerster. making some laps, i think 12 laps. My best time was 1.34.8... Is this a, let´s say, a reasonable time? Now it´s season 10, with Audi R8 at Pau, right? Thanks.

The fastest time last week was a 1:28:143, and now it is indeed week 10 at Pau but the server is not yet up I think.

Good choice with the R8 because you get easy power with nice handling. But I personally dont like the fact that it feels like its on ice.:th_Jttesur:

This combo is extremely difficult IMO. The lack of being able to change major setup parameters like spring stiffness and the lack of a wing make this kind of frustrating even. I guess I'll have to wait until some other people's times are up to see if everyone else is having similar issues.

Ugh, that wasn't fun at all :( I'm going to pass on this week. As Chris said, not being able to change vital settings, combined with with a tight track...ugh, it just isn't fun :(

Come on, anti-roll bars, toe-in/out, camber, caster, differential, they're all there! This car handles like a dream! Especially out of the corners 4 wheel drive gives an awesome feel!:)

1.23.xxx is a very fast time I think!

hmmm... for me the fun comes with the challenge. I also don't like this combo very much, but the challenge is to handle it and to fight against others lap times, which are made under the same conditions. So why passing it a week only because the combo doesn't realy fit the own taste?:sidefrown: (Just my opinion, don't want to tell you what to do)

BTW: change diffs, ARB and chamber and you'll notice very different behaviour.

An other point is that: Taking cars with no ability to change the setup, makes the driver skills much more important and gives people with low setup knowledge a better chance to compare with better drivers, who also couldn't change the setup!

I am sorry some of you don't like my choice of the R8, but I thought it would be something different then normal and the Audi does not handle very bad.

I actually find it quite fun. I was on the server a while ago with Abdul and it was really cool. I love this combo. Brings back memories of when I first got Evo... the R8 and Pau was the second ever combo I tried after adding the Evo content. :in-love:
