yeah that is pretty messed up , lord Kunos is going power crazy or his money lust has made him delusional or something, sorta worried about AC and wish there was an alternative, that was more polished, cause sorta losing interest in AC ,all we get is new cars, which i wouldn't have driven 80% of and the odd track.Yes Phil...

Surprised myself by actually enjoying the racing using one foot! Must be getting better. I had forgotten how much fun these "slidey cars with no brakes" are. Just tried to stay out of trouble but that proved difficult For the record, I would have redressed Wally's position when I tapped him IF I COULD HAVE FOUND HIM!!!!!
Helps fund your track tires for the GT86...Ivsaw you can pick up the game for about $11 now. I was almost tempted. Almost.

Legends Pack are all rips and are running Version 6 of the tyre model. They also feel pretty same same from car to car to me.Didn't all cars feel the same back then?

A real pity I missed most of this season, sounds like it was pretty good fun. Have tried a couple of times to do a few laps but doesn't work too well - foot is still too sore - seems I have archilles tendinitis. Hope I'm able to do more races next season. Trialling right foot braking but having trouble in close racing due to missing braking points or locking up too easily under pressure.

I've got a bone to pick with Joe then - his car drove like crapthank you Des, I have watched both races a few times and enjoyed them, except my stuff ups. Yes in hindsight, I should have stayed there, I was thinking, "get out of the way" but of course everyone has a greater control of their destiny with a stationary object!

I think handicapping whatever the method is dubious at best. In professional races it is for the spectators (ala salary caps).
In online racing it is because the fast guys get bored. But I don't care about fast guys getting bored They can always just drive slower!
I would just give the back end of the field a boost either via a better car or a ballast or engine limit. But not just add ballast to the fast guys. Add ballast to the whole field and then reduce ballast for anyone lapping slower than say 105% of the fastest times.
Reverse grids are horrible. Hate getting pushed and shoved off the track by faster guys. I've done it myself on Thursdays - even when trying to carefully overtake I cause inadvertent havoc for the car I'm overtaking. So reverse grid is great for fast guys but not so great for slower guys.
I like Phil's approach which really just relegated the top 5 drivers to the back for a race or two giving others a chance to compete for the podium. Good fun. Also, means the fast guys "throttle back" a bit to avoid always getting thrown to the back of he field!
Finally, to end my little spiel. Racing against drivers of similar pace is what is most fun (NOT handicapped!). On Thursdays I really enjoy racing against guys who are normally faster but who haven't had time to practise so I can match them for a few laps. That's a buzz.

Sounds like a majority decision to me!!??

Totally agree. Also would bunch up field a bit.But i would like to find all colder classics instead of to modern.
PS. Not sure I agree with the old codgers comment. They were young once

After me "kissing" the hay bales I went back to the pits. Then I saw "THE FLATTOP" running in 5th so watched him for the last 5 or so laps. He had Seanus on his tail but held it together for a solid finish. Very stressful just watching - I wanted to egg him on but didn't dare disturb!!??

Gives Thursdays their character
