Dean and I did some testing last night.  This modding thing isnt as easy as it could be.  

I have the correct gearing in the car, but it doesn't match reality at all.  It is crazy short.  You go into 6th at 102mph.  3rd runs out by 70 I think.

It should be more like this:

 

Suspension wise we need to understand the height settings which are weird.

The car is set up as a DWB car which also needs to be addressed, but for now I'd be happy with the wheel rate in the right ballpark.  I can set it to the proper rates but then car sits crazy high.  Dean and I eyeballed it while adjusting the mystery sliders to get it down to a normal level, but I'm not 100% confident in that.

7)  225s on an 8" wheel for OLOA?  Any significant difference in offset?  

OLOA it will be 225s on 15x7s (OZ Ultraleggera)

I run 245 Hoosiers R7s on 15x8 (Konig Dial-In)

The math I screenshotted is a 7000rpm redline and a tire with 869 revs/mile. (225/45 kumho something or other)

As a quick note.  I looked over the Street Car list I posted earlier and am re-tagging them and it does appear yes, they all are performance equalized.  I think there are 33 cars in the list!  So, we should be very good for the season after this (and maybe a few more, that's a lot of cars).

There is so much potential for various series with that list of cars!!!

i'm hopping on to further refine the mini and participate in whatever other shenanigans are present.

I say for the race, pick a standard kunos car, throw it on barber and lets go

I have a little cleaning up to do, but may be able to get on as well. I guess I should probably figure out how to do that anyway.

That was a really good series!!!  The BOP and the HC seemed to bring the field together really well.

Also a big thanks to everyone for showing up. We can not do this with out everyone. I also noticed that everyone's race craft has got much better as the series went along.  I have no problem going two wide with anyone.

So what is the plan for tomorrow?  More testing of the mini?   
 

Pro/Air  Any more progress in tuning of a min for the series?  

Should we try the car pack Air found?

I haven't touched it since so many people had problems with it last week.  I need to do some research into how to minimize those potential errors, but my hands are full as I am snowed in with a 6 year old.

We do need to test the other tracks to make sure those will work on the server.

If we don't want to use the MINI, we can use the Street Car Pack, or even the 944's (which seem to be about the same performance).

For the street cars though, I was thinking we would do a "jump in and go" selection.  Everyone picks a car they like / want (they are equalized), and an alternate (there are 33 to chose from).  You have to drive a car twice, then you can swap if you want.  You can swap three times max, third time is random.  We might get some good variation this way.

I was also thinking a mix of GT (there is a version of Tokyo R246 out there) and real tracks, alternating longer and shorter (some car might be better on either, but probably not).

For HC testing, I figure we could have the testers (e.g. Sauce, Dean etc) make their choices first.  Not going to be hard to figure out what Sauces first choice will be!  I will generate a better list with pics of the cars so the choice is more informed (some of the names are a bit hard to figure out if you don't know the cars).

So maybe the 944's?

I like the idea of a spec series.  944s are slow which should make for some closer racing

The 944's are not that slow.  They are turbo's with 300 ish HP.  Top out around 150.  The body looks to be a non-turbo though?  They could always be de-tuned of course.

The 944 is up on the drive now if you want to play with it.

The photo above is a turbo car.  300 hp is a modded cup car spec. Stock they ranged from about 225 to 250. 
 

The S2 looked and was specked like a turbo car but has a 3.0l na motor with about 212hp but it had much better torque under the curve making it a tad down on performance as a turbo but much better drive ability for street use.

Oh I was thinking NA 944s like Nasa's spec 944 series which are quite slow

I am thinking that we need to mess with the 944's tonight.  I also have a weird/slow FWD car that we can test as well. We will need a small track for this car.

 

Anything else anyone wants to bring to the table?  

 

I want to see if there is a dirt track where we can try some of the dirt Rally cars that I see in the list of cars.

Hopefully Air can pull the video clip of our 3 wide debacle in the 944.  I was surprised with how close some of the racing was with the radical sr3.
