Either Tomorrow or Wednesday would be a decent time for me to participate in the "mini-race" to test longer distances/damage.

I often find that when racing online the laps seem to go very fast. I can do a 20% race on Career and get bored, but on 50% it doesnt seem to last long enough!

This was my exact thinking. When racing online it just seems to go so fast

I would prefer to race Sunday night for this weekends GP,as i won't be back in time for 7pm start on Saturday.Also in reponse to earlier posts about rule changes i would be happy to keep 50percent race distance but would like to try full damage.

Happy do it either way 75% or 50%, but i think the crashes will start to reduce once everyone gets used to the length of the races.
But this race i have have learned how not to spin out everyone 6/7 laps

Me, Daenius, Brad and Noddee had a few races tonight with full damage on, we all totalled our car at least once. Though to be fair the people we raced were horrible and crashed us off.

All in all it didn't really seem to go well, but then again in the full race were people are more... Considerate, things may be better.

The problem with full damage on is that you really have to drive absolutely perfectly.

We were racing at Korea yesterday, and the last curve is a long right one that you can take from 2nd gear while accelerating up to max speed.

I just swerved one bit to the right, kissed the wall and my car was totaled. Normally this would have been a damaged tyre at best.

So it's definitely something that we have to discuss further before incorporating it into our races.

HaZarr! I have no problems here

But in all seriousness. I think we should try one of the easier circuits with damage. China & Malaysia are very wide with lots of run off areas. Who knows, it could shake up the championship nicely.

I will be on later on if anyone wants to do any practice/racing.

Had a few races with Daenius, abspur & LFC last night, was good. Might have to use my standard xbox controller though as my racing wheel started playing up last night and when I was on this morning it was acting very twitchy and not registering wheel movement or button presses properly...

I've developed a new strategy that could see you eating those words!

Works well, unless the race is at monza

Yh i came like 110th in the world, i thought i'd done good, i said try beat it ... and he bloody did, totally smashed my time. But i have found out that none of my cars will go above 180 mph, even if i mess around with the gearbox, the stupid car selects 7th gear at about 150 mph, and gets stuck on the rev limiter at 175 mph, im losing so much time on the straights

Don't just change the 7th gear, set incremements between the gears. I usually make them look like a slightly diagonal line, depending on track of course.

OK, it's now official. My racing wheel is completely broken. I was just doing a Time Trial on Singapore and it twitched to the left slightly (malfunctioning force feedback) and then it loses all power and I cannot get it to turn back on whatever I do.

Well, controller for me then. I will probably be shit now because I havent used a controller on this game since I first got it.

Yeah Brad that really is a shame for you about your wheel. Be sure to get some practice in with the controller in time for Saturday. And nothing happened tonight LFC. Most people had to go for other commitments tonight at the last minute, myself included (did end up going out in the end, lol). Might be on tommoro, but likely gonna try and improve my Brazil time trial. I know for a fact that i can make it into the top 50 based on my best sector 1 time alone. Just have to get that one perfect lap, and i'll be on for a winner. May try and tune the car too. I really believe i could get top 10 with more work, lol.

MS don't make the wheel anymore either, unless you can get it fixed you're going to have to start looking in your local Argos, or check all the usual game companies websites.
I picked mine up from Gamestation in the beginning of August for 65, it wasn't in stock anywhere in Liverpool but I got it from there and that's the cheapest I know.

... I should get back to time trial, I did have a few good times going in like Monaco, Bahrain & Montreal but they've probably been beaten now. But I'm down to Monza in my career now so I have a pretty good knowledge of 'most all the tracks. I'll have to start posting times.

(Just finished Spa by the way, AMAZING!)

I might buy a wheel and learn to manually shift just to beat Pined

It's absolutely frustrating not being able to beat some of the times in time trial because of the controller and auto shifting, because I know I could.

And yeah, sorry about yesterday, I got a call about uploading some footage on short notice, so I had to leave.

If anyone is online, maybe we could do it tonight... let's see.
