I suspect getting enough land in Sydney to grow stuff is a bit of an issue.  ;)

45 mins from Brissy is the problem part.  It's rather far from anywhere I frequent.   Brit is nearby, have you met him?

But I'll try to make it happen...it shouldn't take much longer, I mean I've promised to turn up at some point ~10 years ago, what's the hurry? :D

In the meantime, if you come around the central coast, give me a holler ;)

So after this fun run there will be another in the exos.  ;D

I take it people havent driven it yet especially if its the stock with only hard tyres, the stig demanded softer tyres to run a lap in it as it doesnt work at all on slower tracks with cool temps.

It would be a fun challenge I think but not something I suspect would be any easier then the 98t. The original favourites have both lost votes so maybe the season will just never get started.  ;)

There will be a deadline eventually :)
I'll probably close the poll after tonight's race, on Wed night. Or you're right, we'll never start.


People can drive the Exos themselves if they want to see if it's vote worthy.

I'll close the poll 6:00pm Wed night, so if you want to change your mind, cast your vote!

Any chance of a proposed circuit list for the exos or 98T before the votes close?

And thanks to Phil, check this app out: http://www.racedepartment.com/downloads/acrl-drs.15414/

It adds the "DRS only when 1 second behind car in front at activation point" and "no DRS until lap 3" rule. It looks good.

Looks interesting, the app is a real chat spammer though lol it would be good if somehow that could be incorporated to plp even better if kunos just added it to the game officialy without needing to run such plugins. If an app can determine the drs rules youd think the code itself wouldnt be that hard inside the game.

I'll put up an XGN version which has our rules in it, and also see if I can strip out any chat spam we don't need. I only need something that says someone used DRS when they're not supposed to, so I can give a post-race time penalty.

I'm really hoping that these sorts of rules and also customisable penalties will come in future updates.

Only needs one more vote but probably 2 as Wally will vote with the pussies in a tie.  ;D

Will need to try and persuade Stefano to consider it, he said a future update will have pit lane speed limits and next update will likely focus more on MP features. Main focus last one was on AI and he did some good stuff there so fingers crossed a big server side uodate next time around as AI isnt a major issue any more.
