By popular request of Nismo and Rohan, I'll be starting up a over the hump series on Wednesday nights. We'll be using the new 2014 Corvette. This Series will turn out to be a drivers series since you can not modify or setup the Corvette at all.

Rohan and I did a short race the other week. Car handles decent, a little loose in the backend but managable.

First race will be this Weds. We'll start at 9:30. No Qualy. Probably do a set of 2-3 short races of 5 laps each with reverse order start on each subsequent race. Not sure of the track yet but will be a collective decision.

I can't attend since I don't even own a PS3 but I am glad to hear of another series being run here at the URL.

It's going to be a short but intense Series. Going under the knife again to redo my left hip on 3/4. Seems something is amiss. Not sure how much mobility I'll have as them may put me in a brace which would really limit any mobility for several weeks.

We'll see. By the way Jammer, happy belated.

Same with my PS3, it has been upstairs hooked to the big screen since I last raced with you guys and doing non-racing duty. Now that I fixed it my son has been comanding it for the game he got for Christmas that he couldn't play due to a none working console.

I may have to jump in for a race though. :D

Understeer is when you hit the wall with the front of the car. Oversteer is when you hit the wall with the back of the car. Horsepower is how fast you hit the wall.
BUT Torque is how far you take the wall with you!!

Maybe, if I can keep my eyelids open. Then again we're all URL Experts Racing Class graduates, so we should be able to jump into any car and be competitive right away. Right?

The next car we'll be using will be the DTM Cars. The updated Online Dealer has several. Pick out 2 of the one's you like best, buy them but do nothing but change the oil. No engine upgrades or turbo. Okay to add Tranny and suspension.

Our next Wednesday's event will be the DTM Cup.

Did they do any updates to the ffb in GT5? I loaded it up last night after months of ignoring it & I was surprised to see that the ffb wasn't as bad as I thought it was. It was more enjoyable. Am I dreaming?

Nothing more than what they had done quite awhile back on one of the updates. Come run with us on Wednesday at 9:30 if you're free.
