You can also select stock cars from the lounge garage, including the M3, so we can even things that way. May run stock and tuners at different times?

We need to get a run time that suits everyone on both coasts.

I was thinking Mondays at 11pm EST (8pm PCT) to give those with families a chance to get settled? Anybody? Thoughts? Bueller? Bueller?
Sounds good for pacific time zone. I will look for you on Monday around that time.

When restricted to stock cars it makes sense to restrict the tires to sports or racing. The comfort tires are not fun.

Agreed. I say just force soft racing tires on the room. I also think forcing the stock E92 M3 is a good idea. Evens everything out, and one doesn't have to go around the tuning screens to turn modifications off (and most likely forget something in the process).

I need some volunteers for a dry run on Thursday night. 10pm EST.

I will set up a "lounge" and see how it works. I have not done this before, so I need some practice, so I need 2 or 3 patient M3 drivers - if that species actually exists! LOL
I'm just now reading this thread and would love to join in races that are scheduled.

I've sent you a friend request.

Folks, I (vef149), BigBrewksy(Lim3y) and BeastCharmer(03beastcharmer) made it yesterday.

Unfortunately the PS3 online network killed the fun as racing starts never worked correctly.

LiM3y, thanks for persisting in organizing this even though the showing is not what I expected

I will try something more spontaneous and post here with instructions and times on how to join a race whenever I am online lapping around (no need for friend requests on the PS3 network and such). The participant limit is 16 but based on experience so far it will take a miracle to fill it up.

I will continue to tune in to LiM3y's lounge on Mondays and hopefully the ps3 network works and people join too.

Glad to hear a few of you were able to get online last night. I tried a few times, but I kept on getting kicked off the network. Seemed once I was in GT5 I would only remain connected for a few seconds. Hopefully it will work for me next week!

I did punt vef149 onto the grass during practice and sportingly waited for him further down the track.

That was the highlight. The network sucked.

Are you guys connecting using wifi? I have the same issue when I try to race with my friend (I'm also using wifi). My friend has his ps3 connected directly to his router and says he has no issues with playing GT5 online against others. I need to get a long ethernet cable and test it out. Just throwing it out there in case you might want to try the same.

At this point it's more annoying than fun when getting disconnected during a race.

I am plugged directly into the network - I am sick of shooting 20 rounds into some 12 y-o's avatar on Black Ops and still getting killed!

I was using wifi. I have not played with the M3 on sport tires in awhile. A lot more drifting when you have a heavy foot and sport tires

We haven't actually started for real yet. I am going to set this up one last time on Monday. If there is only two of us, I am calling it and I will join vef149 in a campaign to own the internet with M3s!

Last stand: Monday 1/31 11pm EST

Friend me: Big_Brewsky and then you can enter the private lounge.

Thanks to the organizer for today's races and thanks to the people who came (me, 03BeastCharmer and Jaypod).

03BeastCharmer (see helmet shot) smoked everybody. Especially the last race was pure adrenaline as 03BeastCharmer overtook me in the last corner (11) of the race.

Some pics from Laguna Seca and the Nürburgring GP track. You can see some bumping. What you cannot see is grass trimming with M3 lawn mower, corner cutting and some other stunts.
