Going to make a small rule regarding the looks of the cars. As far as I know, Off-Road tyres don't make a performance impact on the Comet. As they are purely a cosmetic choice I'm going to ban them from the cars as I think they ruin the racing looks. Plus it's a track based series, no off road sections at all! :D

do i have to use a specific color combo or just as i want? (with the livery i said)

Any colour you want although you can work with your team mates and go for a similar colour scheme.

I can go with Meinmacht (1st preference), 80's Gamer or Auto Exotic for the livery as they go nicely with Dew Yellow and Light Blue.  Globe Oil and Wewang don't look too bad either as the red is placed in good positions.  Although I assume the exact colours can be sorted out once we get the teams listed, @Squirrel?

Colour of your car is down to the individual driver. The teams don't need to have the same colours.

Best to choose the team with your preferred livery before they all go. Remember that only the top two drivers will score points for the team. I'll make sure the other non crew participants are aware of the team selection.

Another White, Blue and Yellow car. Definitely a popular choice :D

Wonder how your sponsors feel about you posing in front of advertising for two rival teams?

They're quite happy about it.  Like you said, we're "in front" of the other teams.  A sign of things to come, perhaps. :D

I'm thinking you may want a team where you can represent the red of the Welsh Dragon. Wiwang looks like it could be a great sponsor. I'm sure you and @Lann will give those Retro Racers a run for the money. 

Alright, I'll join Wiwang :)

Great news, welcome to the team!

I did paint my car white with a dark (racing) green as secondary. We got plenty of time to decide on details like that.. this is what it looks like now.

After reading the comments from the shoutbox last night there is a potential game mechanic which is going to cause a bit of controversy. 

This of course is kerb boosting. Unfortunately the way the game is coded it is faster to drive on the kerbs than it is on the road. 

From what I can gather, no one likes kerb boosting but they see it as a necessary evil to be competitive especially in non-contact racing. 

I would like to outlaw kerb boosting for this championship. It's not within the spirit of the game and the potential arguments it can cause can cause unnecessary rifts within the crew.

Two points need to be addressed. Firstly, how do you define what is a kerb boost and what isn't?

Obviously weaving on the red and white strips while driving on a straight is clearly boosting. However using kerbs on the apex and exits of corners isn't, although you are still gaining a slight speed and grip advantage you are taking the racing line of the corner. Then you have the grey line in between both types of kerb use.

Is putting two wheels on a kerb while getting ready for a turn counted as a boost? Is maintaining your trajectory after exiting a corner actively seeking a boost?

This brings me onto the second point. How do we identify a boost and what do we do about it for this championship. 

I'd like as many of us to be recording the races as possible, this is both good for using the footage for promotional material as well as sorting out any potential issues. 

If you see someone apparently kerb boosting we can assign a few people not competing in the championship as an independent stewards panel. They can review the footage and decide if it was actively seeking a boost to gain advantage or just maintaining the racing line. 

If anyone is found to be actively seeking a boost then for the first offense they will be issued a warning about it. 

Second and subsequent instances will be punished by a 5 place position drop in the results applied after the race. 

The same panel can also be used to judge any collisions between drivers which need a review. Action on those incidents will be decided by the panel depending on the severity. 

I don't think kerb boosting will be an issue in the championship as long as we are all aware it's forbidden. We are all very good at keeping within the rules of the game and it will make the championship fair for all competing.

If you are only allowed to drive on kurbs if its in your racing line on a turn I don't think we will see any issues. It obviously needs to be known. :)

Policing the kerb boosting will be tough, I have been accused of it before when just clipping the apex on corners, some people 'get away with it' hugging the outside kerb a little too long on the exit of a corner, luckily though the real abusers are pretty obvious as they weave down a straight molesting the rumble strip.

I am all for trying to stamp it out though and I am pretty sure the majority will be too. I would emphasise as often as possible in your promotion and before races that you consider it cheating and it will not be tolerated and hopefully it will disappear.

Don't think it is a big issue, we were just messing about last night really but the scale of the tracks did make me worried for the number of cars on them, we're doing Qualifying so will know what lap times are being had previously so if anyone is taking the piss it will show.

I think calling it cheating is a bit strong, I mean, if the creator hasn't done anything about it...

Lots of people just play whatever is put in front of them, whether it be wide open flat races with boosting for 90% of the lap, or wall-riding every corner because the barriers allow it.

It's gonna be tough to avoid the kerbs to be honest. Last night I was doing it deliberately to point out the issues, but a lot of the time I hit them without trying, it's just the line I happen to be taking.

I think I'll give up my spot to someone else, don't wanna spend cash I haven't got on a car that I'll never use only to get people bitching about cheating and stuff :)

I'll probably watch some streams though.

I don't think we can compare qualifying fastest laps to race fastest laps. If you remember the endurance race on Braddock Pass by the time we had all been running it for 24 game hours we knew the track well and improved massively over the one flying lap qualifying we did. 

The tracks we're using are wider than that track too on the most part without the dangerous falls to either side. In that race with lagging drivers there was only one incident of one car badly taking someone out. I think we will be fine, the first couple of laps we'll have to be cautious but as the field starts to spread it should make it easier.

Fair point there I guess, still think the time sheets will help show anything obvious though cause there's not a massive amount of time you can really improve over those laps on these tracks imo, there's not a lot too them in that sense, only difference will be becoming more comfortable with the car, hoping the fact that we're in order properly after a quail will mean less of a problem with cars getting stuck behind a slower one anyways but I'd say join us @DavidCore89, the racing will be more interesting with you being up there anyways imo.

Decision to enter is down to you either way you decide to go.

As for the kerb boosting I think it's best that we know where we stand before going into the championship. It's the same with races set to GTA for pitlane access only just because there's a game feature available to use doesn't mean we should. 

Deliberate kerb boosting is pretty obvious and I'm definitely not wanting people to avoid the kerbs completely as they do form part of the racing line on all the tracks. With the video capture and independent panel reviewing it then any issues can be sorted out fairly.

DC, it would be good to have your input on the worst areas of the tracks for gaining an advantage using it. It will be useful for people to know what they should and shouldn't do.

I don't curb boost intentionally, not because I am against it but because when I try do to it, it's counter productive. Either I lose speed by skimming the fence, backing off throttle so I don't crash or just crash. If I raced everyday I might master it but at my level I'm better off not risking it.

if dc doesn't want to take part I vote we make him/ask him to be the chief steward instead :D

I just stick to the line. If the line makes me curb boost at the exit of a turn, so be it. Same for the apex.

Same here, includes the inside of corners, won't be deliberately relocating the posts around México but it will happen ;)

      Well, in a matter of days I will achieve the 50,000 kill trophy that only @DavidCore89 and @Con  have achieved in this crew!  I have been wanting it for a while.  I told myself it was the last major thing I wanted to achieve in this game before moving on to RDR2. 

      Now I need to decide on how to get that 50,000th kill.  Any suggestions?  I would like it to be something epic.  I was pretty happy with how I got kill number 25,000:
      Now I need a good way to get kill number 50,000.  Any ideas?

      Short old timey mostly dirt track for the stock Hermes. Good for contact and a bump or two. Cliff diving is a distinct possibility. 
       
      If you’re not rolling, you’re not going fast enough.
