made tomorrow pre season race because none of us quite know what's going on here :p
At this rate I'm wondering if Mike will even show...
Lobby will probably be up for 8pm Haveblue. I'll do it if Mike doesn't make it

Damn I haven't even been paying attention. I'm glad this is only pre season because I have a work dinner at around six.

No real need for an individual sign-up if you sign up for the series I'll send you an invite if you're online.
 
I just had a practice in the M3 GT4, I'm struggeling to get below 1.42.5xx. Apparently the Aston GT4 should be able to hit 1.41s according to leaderboards. Are any of you getting those lap times? Are the GT4 cars really that unbalanced or are the leaderboards not a good indicator? (I just went faster than the M3 times on the leaderboards so I don't think they show the difference between the GT4 cars).
 
hmm the M3 might be a little slower but nothing I noticed much really. I need to practice at some point today to get a time at dubai.
Leaderboards aren't usually great for determining a car's overall pace because of all the setup changes though
 
Apparently on many forums, the Aston and Ginetta are much faster than the M3, Boss and Rapide. I'll have a go in the Aston later today and see if there's anything about it. Maybe its just setup/driver skill related, I hope so, or else there's not much sense in driving a slower car. Different tyre wear on each car should be a non issue on hour long races, so that's good.
 
well the Ginetta is miles ahead of all unfortunately. Astons and Mustang are very close, m3 is just behind and the toyota is a POS in comparison to all. The class should be balanced much better but they just left it alone

I think the m3 likes to under steer on turn in if I remember. If you can dial that out and make it a bit more lively it comes alive.

It's taken me a long time to tune in any of these gt4 cars, I think they are by default slow and cumbersome, but with a little work you knock at least half a second off that time.
 
yes a different style, let it glide into corners more and just tame the back, less HP to deal with than GT3 but also near stock suspension & components. Nice cars to drive
 
ok the Aston is well capable of 41's here with traction off. I hope the other cars are able to do that or it'll end up being everyone in Aston's

I have a decent tune on it now, in many corners I can easily go full throttle before the apex on Dubai International, but looks like I'm not going to get in the 41s (best so far was a 42.5xx). I'm surprised how good the M3 and GT4 cars feel driving wise, if more would've driven them online, I think it would be more fun than the GT3 class.

Just managed to set a 42 flat in the boss with a cat on my lap in only 30 mins of practice. I think it could get a solid 41 with practice. It's not as maneuverable as the Aston but I had more power. Haven't tried the m3 here yet.
