That's what I'm doing. I'm actually kind of surprised...I'm winning most races pretty easily on Hard mode. I'm sure it gets tougher later.

The pototype races can be tough on professional, and there are a few DTM and GT500 races that are tough.

Those times in the linked thread for this race? I'm struggling to get below 2.03:5xx. Trying more just gets me sloppy all over the place.

~265kW on street tires, chassis/suspension mods mostly.

edit: NVM, I misread and maxed A class

I'll be testing the S-class evo some tonight.

We're also thinking about bumping up the miata from D-class to C-class.

Do it. I have a great C-class Miata and need to do well after last weekend.

I was going to say, you should contact hustler for miata mods, he has a few. I'll for sure get raped again this week.

45.xxx with Hustler's silver miata. Could be quicker with a higher final drive. Only did about 5 laps.

I need to try hustler's c-class miata. I managed a 44.2xx with a tune Zac came up with. Hustler can you gift me a c-class tune please? We'll probably just end up using yours for the spec car this weekend


Zac, turo, and I played around with the b-spec cars. Mazda 2, ford feista, and honda fit. The 2 & feista have the same power/weight, but the 2 has a tad more torque. The fit is heavier but has more power. I played around with the mods and it came out to a B487 for the 2 & feista and B492 for the fit. We ran Nurg. GP short and I hot lapped 1:40.1xx untuned..... with all three cars, lol. It will definitely be a future race for sure, they are fun as well to rub and bump along.

Were expanding, I've posted up on clubroadster and Zac has posted up on hondatech!

It'd be cool to have two rooms of 12-16 people, two heats with a second final race!

I will share it after I get off work and crush zee iron in zee gym, ya. I worked on tuning last night. I added more camber to most cars, more caster, less tire pressure than usual, lowered swaybars and starting changing damping numbers independant from spring rates. I netted ~3 seconds in the Open DTM car at Infineon.

Uh, find the club "MT" online, and request to join, I'm not sure who the leader is currently. Hustler?

I was running short on time this week to get a parts list together. We're going to use what Zac came up with. I did a 44.3xx with his tune, it's easy to drive and you can adjust all the gears so it should be interesting

Parts list for the miata is posted here: http://forza4clubracer.tumblr.com/po...ace-miata-425c
