@omarcomin71 thanks for posting this up. The start time is wrong on the Calendar, for me at least. It says 9:30pm start in my local time, it should be 8:30pm.

 

 

Also XDBX, we need to pick 5 land races for this, reasonably normal tracks. So feel free to make suggestions.

Here's some intitial thoughts on XDBX tracks for this. We want 5, all fairly normal races, ideally most should be able to be done standard but a couple could be non-contact, covering a range of classes.

I know most of these can take all classes but I'm just suggesting one or two. All are 30 player, unless stated otherwise. I don't think we'll need 30 player races but may as well plan for that with other options.

Please feel free to comment and / or add suggested tracks, irrespective of if you are coming to the event or not

@JuniorChubb are going to avoid Sedans and SUVs because of the camera angle bug? And I'm assuming it's cars/trucks only, no motorbikes.

I think the Sedan and SUV bug got fixed in the last update...

We lost Stunt Track Turn 2 and gained a stable camera in Sedans ?

Need to confirm this though...

I'll try a sedan / SUV later, but I thought it still looked a but odd the other day.

No Pariah's is fine, I don't think anyone will object to that.

I want to put Another Dock Race forward for one of our tracks, mostly because I'm vain and proud of it! Works with all classes, except for tall vehicles like vans or some off-road vehicles.

And I am definitely up for this! Love racing with the VANS guys.

Personally think it’s too tight for contact racing especially when racing with people who don’t know the track. Also a couple of corners that are tighter than they seem when racing it first time (the one after the hairpin and the penultimate corner). But I love the track and it would be great non contact.

Will be great to have you along @The_Lady_A, it’s been ages since I raced you.

@djw180 we are gonna have to check, it would be nice to have Sedans back in the mix.

@Potato non contact is an option... so is a racing potato, fingers crossed we’ll se you too.

I've checked, sedans and SUVs are fixed.

I'd like to finalise the tracks by about this time tomorrow, just so people can have a run through any tracks they are not familiar with, if they want to.

Unless their's any objections, the XDBX races will be

Classes can be changed a bit depending on which classes VANS have planned.

I'll check my race today and make sure sports class works and has all the cars. Do you intend for it to be limited to the rally cars in sports class? Also will all the races be custom cars?

I was thinking customs and any car you like (other than the Pariah which is already banned for all races). I did it earlier in Ellegy Retro, no problems, timed it about 5 minutes.

All our races are in customs, I'm assuming VANS are the same, but that's for Chubb to decide.

As long as people are aware semi aesthetic raceway has concrete tubes around a couple of lampposts, then it sounds good.

Just to add, all our races will be Customs On, no bikes and no Pariah in Sports Class.

Mille Vinewood will be best Non Contact due to twisty start and glitched small grid.

Playlist for tonight

https://socialclub.rockstargames.com/games/gtav/ps4/playlists/playlist/PIgwvxlwqEKRO7DvCxabvw

 

I've alternated between VANS and XDBX picks, trying not to have same classes following each each and spreading the non-contact out. Of course R* may re-arrange the order anyway.

It's clean racing, no deliberate curb boosting all night. Any GTAs will just be for a pit lane.

No bikes (if we end up doing any off road)

No Pariah

No catchup up. Maybe slip stream on some, if we want it.

We didn't decide who was actually the host. I'm happy to do it @JuniorChubb, if I do please check I've set everything right.

Just mentioning all the people that have accounts here.

@Beez @Potato @The_Lady_A @DavidCore89 @Lann @Crawford1872

@Road2fury @Mythaga @Trashbags @doubleg213 @Paulie

 

Chubb - you're all going to be in a session before this shall we just all join you or would it be better for me to make another invite session just before 8:30? I've sent friend's requests to all those in the chat I don't already have

Happy for you to host @djw180, I’ll be glad for the break ?

We were wondering if Semi-Aesthetic Might be more enjoyable on non-contact.

Everything else is spot on. If we are all in session and not racing I will just invite you in at 8:30.

Was unknowingly muted at the end. Just wanted to say thank you to everyone who took part.

Also @JuniorChubb on tank slalom it's a mixture of warp checkpoints and speed boosts. Coming out of one always makes the screen very blurry and if you're doing it at speed you need a fairly long straight just to regain control as it can spit you out a bit out of shape sometimes also.

Good fun all round peeps ?

Thanks to all who turned up,  thanks for all staying calm and having a laugh despite some dubious driving here and there. Was good fun and happy to go again. ?
