I just like the idea of a few 10-15 lap races so if there is a cluster **** you don't have to spend another 30 minutes or an hour hot lapping in last.

Yeah, the first one will be kind of a test round, hopefully it all goes well. It's a short track so it shouldn't be too bad.

I think we'll be on tonight around 7-8pm est trying it out.

Something else, why do we all have to use the same tune? Why can't we cater the car to our liking, so long as it has the same upgrades? I'd much rather take the car out and tune it to my liking first. A good tune to one person might not be good to another person. And why a Civic...? We can't race decent cars that aren't fail wheel drive? A classics race would be cool too, old Daytona Coupes or something.

Gamertag is S3 Zyklon, add me to the list.

Yeah I'm working with my friend to where everyone will have the same parts but be able to tune it to their driving style and such. We picked the civic as the first car because it's super easy to drive so we figure they'll be less wrecks that way, lol.

Well that's no fun! Sometimes a hard to drive car is more exciting, though it usually does end in tragedy during online racing. Even with the "easy" Civic, I still bet the first turn will be a parking lot. Always happens that way, people don't know how to fall into line and keep the race going, they all try to ram their way into an early lead and wreck the entire pack.

Holy, change the green in the first post. It's making my eyes bleed and I can't read it.

I for one would at least like for someone to post their tuned version of the car if we aren't all going to run the same tune. I'm a tuning noob and don't have the time to spend to learn how to do so.

It's currently tuned and locked. Worked great for me on a controller, I've found steering wheel tuned cars are too twitchy. One mistake and you're in the wall. This one was nice though.

So who did that tune again? I was not fond of that car at all. May have been better with a wheel, but with a controller with no throttle modulation, as soon as you back off the gas, the rear comes around and you end up sliding the *** all over the place. I'd really like to do a RWD race next time. FWD sucks! I don't know how you guys ran 1:03.9 laps, I was busting my *** to run clean flawless laps, and my best was only 1:05.5... You guys using wheel?
