Chiliad Circuit

A short lap race based at the foot of Mt Chilead using the long tunnel that goes through the mountain. I have tried to merge the props into the landscape for an organic feel, the winding hairpins might be built upon for a point to point race up Chilead if they work well here. There are some great elevation changes with a winding uphill section and a fast decent down into the tunnel.

Snapmatic Contest - Horror

With Halloween on the horizon it seems this is the perfect theme for the month. Take your time, I will keep this thread open for entries and changes until well after and new Halloween content is available so you can use it if you want. Anything goes as long as it is spooky. During voting I will instruct the voters to pick based on creepiness Put some effort into it, while just taking a photo of Hatch in his normal outfit will likely win it for you I hope you all are more creative than that. Happy Snappy!

Submit your best two photos. You can change them at any point until the thread is locked.

A very late H'ween Adversary PL

The PL that never was. It was supposed to be the Adverse Tuesday H'ween special, but it never happened, but I really want it to happen! So here it is! Scary/creepy adversary modes mixed up with a few custom jobs in a PL that shouldn't take much longer than 1,5hrs. If we get less than 4 players, we could make some money with smuggling instead, since it's still 2x$.

Pfister Supercup (Squirrel)

What it is:
A bi-weekly endurance race based on real world tracks mirroring the real life Porsche Supercup. http://www.porsche.com/international/motorsportandevents/motorsport/customerracing/porschecups/pmsc/

When it is:
It will be held Monday evenings on alternate weeks to my Monday Madness event, it will also fall on the Monday where there's isn't a Sunday Racing League event the day before. 

How does it work:
The event will consist of a 3 lap non contact qualifying session followed by a contact race of approximately 30 minutes in length. If possible I will try get duplicate tracks made so a small 2 track playlist can be made, if not possible I will host the qualifying session and then the race separately.  

The order for the feature race start will be determined by the finishing order of the qualifying race. The race itself will be run over a distance of approximately 70km. In each case this distance is converted into a certain number of laps for the classification round(s) and indicated for each event in the Supplementary Event Regulations.
The race will have a warm up lap not included in the total race distance where the cars can get into their qualifying position followed by a rolling start for lap two. Pole sitter must maintain a reasonable speed on the warm up lap to allow for the pack to form behind them, full racing speed can start on the final turn of lap 1 but no overtaking until you have crossed the start line. 

What car:
It will be a single make series, all cars must be the Comet Retro Custom. There are a wide variety of body styling and liveries available. http://gta.wikia.com/wiki/Comet_Retro_Custom  Failure to pick the right car means DSQ for that race.

Crew Challenge 139 – Free roam time trial II

Same as we attempted last week but with a more suitable time trial from Rockstar.
For this one we'll be doing the free mode time trail that shows up on your map as a purple stop watch icon.

This week Rockstar have chosen Del Perro Pier. It should stay as this for about a week. Once it changes, expected sometime in the morning European time 24th Oct, the challenge is over

This will be a 2 player team event. One teammate in a car the other on a motor bike.

Only vehicles that are available in a normal land race may be used (so no Rocket Voltic, Oppressor etc).
For the purposes of this challenge a car is any 4 wheeled vehicle (or the Raptor if you want) but not any form of the blazer.
Not that I think those rules are needed, but they are there just incase.

We'll do the usual random draw for teams once enough have signed up.
To start the time trial drive into the purple marker and then race to the finish taking any route you like.

At the end a screen shows your time, which you'll probably want to take a screen shot of. There is a par time set by Rockstar, if you beat that you get a big cash prize. You can reply it as many times as you want but you only get the cash prize once. If you go wrong you can use triangle to re-start.

You can do this in any weather conditions, any time of day you like. I believe you go passive when you start so other people in the lobby should not have too much of effect. You can do it, I think, in any session except a solo one.

Starts, now,
Ends when Del Perro Pier is no longer the time trial, probably around 8-10 UTC 31st October

This challenge was suggested by Proto. I am always looking for suggestions for different challenges, so if you have an idea do please let me know.

Vote for your go to car in each class (if you only had to pick one), then onto the 2nd choice and 3rd.

If the car you'd pick is not on the list, pick Other and write down the car you'd have picked.


We need to update the Best Cars per Class thread in classes where new competitive or best in class vehicles have been released since.

Thank you!

Crew Challenge 137 – Red vs Blue

No, not a politics challenge but a solo time trial with a little twist. We'll be using the Rockstar Stunt Track Duel which has two routes, one red and one blue. You need to record you fastest lap using each route then add them together. Fastest total time wins.

To make sure you know which route a lap time comes from do the race and always take the blue route (i.e. go left after the start where the track splits) and then do it again and this time always take the red route (i.e. right at the split). Please do not change route part way through (if you know how to do that). We'll trust each other to say which time was for each route. No need to submit videos.

As this is a Rockstar race you will be able to get randoms to race you if you like, that's fine just remember you must do this non-contact if you race with other people.

You can use any custom muscle car you like, it does not have to be the same one for each route.

The usual other rules. As many laps in one race as you like. Make any number of attempts. Non-contact if racing with others. Any time of day. Weather is fixed to clear and run up are not an issue on this track.

Gran Turismo Sport: Free Limited Time Demo Launch
  • 1 reply

Welcome to Domestic Battery! 

Here at XDBX we're pretty particular in the types of members we're looking for. We're looking for fun people who enjoy everything the game has to offer and not just one specific aspect of the game. We don't care what level you are or where you're from, what we do care about is whether or not you're a team player and a mature gamer.

Freeroam Air Raid

With many options of how to bomb folks in freeroam, I would like to get a squadron up and bomb the shit out of LS like it was 1945 Berlin.

No Bombushkia's please.
Tula's, Rogues, Moguls, (Seabreeze, Hunter, etc.. if released by the time we do this)

2 people per plane to drop bombs and have the gunner turrets up and running should defense be needed.
Rogues take the lead in fending off any Hydras, Lazers, etc..
Focus on high level bombing out of launcher range.

Thursday Racing League

A non-contact racing playlist with community and crew created tracks and using various car classes, 1-1.5h long.

PL is suited for students, unemployed, Aussies, NA sleepwalkers or anyone that happens to be online at the time. Launched from a public lobby and with client invites ON, you can invite anyone you know, EVERYONE is welcome.

It'll feature any trials/challenges tracks and tracks from upcoming racing championships and H2Hs for practice as well.

If we get a big enough group of regular racers attending, I'll start with more themed PLs and perhaps even organize some short championships.
