I'm sute a few of us could at least find time on the weekends
i'm having a lot of fun with the livery editor and photo modes.
My pink pig 917 livery. i think im the first to do it with the correct font.
I really like taking the various race cars and giving them a solid color to appreciate the cool lines and fancy bits.
And i also like making weird liveries
And i like making cars look like turds.
This one cracks me up because it really does look like a lot of old nissan 240's and skylines you see around.
signatures are annoying, right?
Weirdest thing happened last night and I'm not sure if it was a glitch in the game or just on my end:
Raced Nurburgring GP with the GT3 class in one of the official races. 10 lap race so we had to pit for at least gas mid-way through the race.
Anyway, i'm in 4th-5th the entire race, I go in to pit and I come out 5th going onto the 6th lap. By about lap 7, half the field is behind one lap, probably positions 8 to 18.
Its the final lap for the lead lap cars (including myself still sporting that 5th position [car A]) and I have a car in front of me that says they're in 11th (car B) and a car directly behind me that says they're in 12th (car C). I'm 14+ seconds behind 4th at this point on the last lap and myself and Car C are gaining on car B.
Being the gentleman that I am, I decide to let Car C pass me to give him a chance to catch Car B for position. Its the final lap but I know for a FACT Cars B & C were a lap behind me.
We cross the finish line and to my shock, the 12th place car that I let pass me now finishes the race 5th and i get dropped to 6th!!
Lesson learned, don't be nice and let cars way behind you pass so they can make up ground
Yeah that happens all the time. I got mad the other day, doing daily one-make in those terrible Copen dihatsu things. I started last and made it to 4th place on lap 4 and was closing in on the top 3. Maybe could get one more position when on turn one of Brands the guy behind me doesn't brake at all, punts me into the gravel and I got a 5 second penalty. I did nothing wrong. Finish in 6th and the ******* that punted me doesn't even show a penalty in the race results. WTF

Same thing happened to me during the same race I mentioned above. 2nd lap going into the first turn, I always misjudge it and i happened to brake a tad earlier than I should've, but nothing outrageous. Guy behind me punts me off the track, takes over my position and now i'm a solid 8+ seconds behind the top 3. Before this, top 5 cars were all within a second and now I'm in 5th with zero chance of catching the leaders.
Not only did the guy behind me not get any sort of penalty, but I got minus SR from it I thought that intro video we were forced to watch said it was the responsibility of the faster cars to safely pass a slower car, not punt them off the track!
Still waiting on our TCL grand prix though rubbin's racing whenever that happens
FWIW, group X sucks because nobody ever races it because the cars are not equal at all.
The Goodwood Curcuit just released is quite good.
I thought it was going to be boring because safe modified oval for vintage racing.. and yes, it has great visibility and maybe just two spots where you can hit something hard with a moderate mistake.. but it works.
It doesn't penalize you too bad for going a bit wide/deep in many spots which keeps racing close.
