Thanks for having me Brnt.

Sorry I checked out early, I wanted to get back to the single player races and make some cash. Plus, you know how I feel about NASCAR... It was good to get a taste of online gameplay and meet a few guys I haven't raced with before.

I'll stick to my sports cars and road courses...

I joined the room and all I saw was Burnt, Rusty, and Skiwi in the race. Is that all who was there racing? I had a hard time hearing everyone racing. It was fun while it lasted.  Thanks for letting me in.

Think you made it in when we were doing a practice race at Motegi checking it out Jimmee. We had run at Daytona and Indy already and most had to go by then. Think we had about 8 running earlier.

Well I thought we were. My ps3 has pretty much had it. It has now started to have more black screens that video screens, wont be long before it completely goes. I decided to hit gamestop for the 500gb last stand ps3 for $269 was hoping to not have to purchase another console till I was able to make a choice on next gen like next year or so but the ps didn't make it and there is still so much gt6 to play yet soooo. In process of transfering everything from the 40 gig console to the 500gig lol!

It is takin me a lot of time for me to get used to GT.  Our little run after the Motegi race was awful on my part. Trying to get to the right PP.  I am in the process of buying some cars so I have more to choose from.  Oh well.  Thanks for letting me in Burnt, good to see ya again Track

Well Grimm turnout has been dismal for this, Jimmy popped in the week before, but this last monday I was all alone hotlapping for an hour or so before I turned it off for the nite. Not sure if it's worth it, since there is no interest. Seems tough to get people to show up for most events on gt and not sure why.

Brnt...Turnout Dismal?....From my perspective it seems simple...Too many of us had a major investment into Forza where Microsoft turned it to shit with their compatibility issues. I never acquired a taste for arrogance so my piss-off is ongoing. A lot of the guys here are mature or like myself elderly. I cannot speak for anyone else but I cannot run in a series unless I practice up and find the right time and hopefully a tune from someone that fits my style. You may of not noticed but guys with tunes have a advantage over the rest of us. Proof of the pudding is when you get the same guys in a pick-up race where a no tune is mandatory you may have a different outcome. No longer can I sit in front of the TV and participate in races for a long time... A lot of us have wives. Now my wife let's me do anything I want...Trade-off...When she want to do something I better not be saying I have a race to run. Seasonal projects are here...Time Consuming. Now if I had to run 2-3 series a week I wouldn't have time for NOTHING....Personal Opinion of Course!yeslaugh

P.(arcell)S...Bottom Line...People are pissed off at major expenses that are now worthless...Maybe Same expenses can be usable for GT6...Still have to put out more money...Console...Game...More people, to me, race in the Winter...Slow it down in the Spring and Summer....Boils down to this....Love Racing...Will Race when I Can!!!

I dont buy the lack of tunes as being a reason for non participation.  I tried to start up three different non tuning events and still no participation.  I agree with Jimmee though for the cause of the lack of participation.

As for not having tunes available, the clan has been running full tuning events for years in forza and yes a tuned car does have an advantage in forza just like it does in GT6 however people have either leanred to tune or are able to pick up a tune from others. Everyone is willing to share, you just need to ask.  Yes sharing a tune is a bit more difficult in GT6 but I have ALWAYS shared my tunes in every event and I know others have as well.  Additionally, you can read off the tune in the lobby and make the adjusts real time which makes it even easier.  Again, one just needs to ask.

We got at least 5 things going against the clan right now.

1) Forza 5

2) Forza 4

3) GT 6

4) The good weather.

5) Location

We are so split up by those things. It is going to be tough to get a a few guys let alone a fulll room. Myself I like the "run what ya brung" style and the track night racing. Until we all settle on a console we will continue to be split. Sorry to say.

3G's...Lack of Tunes is not the total reason...Just Real Life complexities...You have been more than gracious with your tunes...And I for one appreciate it...If it wasn't for you and Indy I wouldn't even participated in Snappy's Series. That alone was the difference in participating or not. You will have to teach me how to read off the tune in the lobby...At the moment I have no clue. As much as I have a distaste for Microsoft at the moment a couple of tweaks (Fanatec New Wheel) and I will be more than likely getting back to Forza. Also I believe there is plenty of room for Two Consoles here..... Jimmy has some great points...I Agree!yessmiley

Wheels all that you would have to do is, both parties go to "car settings" in the lobby and you/they tell the other what settings you/they have over the headset. Both would need the same car at the time but, I guess trying the settings on a different car would be ok too.

Well Dismal turnout is me alone for the alloted time or with one other. I realize all the factors involved and just thought trying to have something on Monday nites for people who have some free time to run the Nascar cars would like to do that. Not a good nite for it so far, but things change, shedules change etc, who knows.

Something wrong with the servers? I can connect with lobby servers to setup a room and get dns errors when trying to pm others online.

No worries Jimmy I completely understand bud. GT seems to be fairly tough to get together a field together for racing here. Maybe we can get some to show for Nascar back on FM4. Maybe people here just aren't redneck enough tho, lol!
