What's the consensus on cars?  Are they all pretty much the same? - ie out of control rocket ships!

I find them all different. I posted the power to weight ratios in another thread - they differ. I find the Brabham and Eagle unstable under brakes, and unstable in corners. The Lotus and the Cooper are a bit oversteery. The McLaren and Honda are a bit understeery. The Ferrari is... nice. This is how I find them all with fairly default setups. You might be able to settle them down with setup.

Hi Andy. Great, and welcome! I sent you a PM. Make sure you come along to next Tuesday's fun run, so you can make sure you're all set up and ready to go.

It's looking pretty certain to be a GPL season, so you can start nominating what car you want to drive, by replying to this thread.I'll make it so that you can swap cars just once at the half way point of the season, if you absolutely hate the car you've been driving.

I've certainly got a car in mind, but it will depend on the major characteristics of the track selection. ;)

First post updated with details.

The important thing is this:

Sign Up
To sign up, go to the XGN Car Dealer, and sign up for season 28. Once you've signed up, go to the Car Dealer page and choose a car. All cars are "free", so you can choose whatever car you like.


You don't have to post your car choices here - you have to do it in the car dealer.

Is this happening or the OP of swapping every round?
I'd prefer this, but only if you're outside the top ten (if you're in it you're clearly not hating the car).
Those who don't have the time to learn a new car each week (the prime car for the track), will be disadvantaged.

Plus, I'd like to see how the driver/car combo strengths/weaknesses play out over the season of differing tracks. 8)

Proscriptions not needed. To change to the better car for each round you trade off having to get used to it. Most won't change, some will, and any one who wins is encouraged to not race that car again. Tis Don.
The need to not change cars was a procedural one which Wally has skillfully automated and we are now back to a more sensible scenario.

No, that's outdated. I'll fix it. Like GzeroD said, you can swap whenever you want, or not swap at all if you choose.

So I have these teams, from recent seasons:

Krahl Racing - Phil & Joe
Team SNRL - AB & Russ
Infinity+1 - Seanus & Doobs
Maki Engineering - Freezer & Mael
Aleph Null Ltd - Bacchulum & ??

How do you want to shuffle Infinity + 1 and Aleph Null?
