I plan to be there again tonight, but I likely won't be able to show up until 11PM EDT (9pm for me).

If possible can we race on the Brewmeister after 11pm EDT. I spent some time last night practising on it and I'd hate to miss the race on it.

Looking forward to racing with you all again tonight.

I am iffy today. I will try to make it though.

Yes you can brewmeister out of the lounge. You need to mark it as a "favorite" so that it shows up in you track choices.

Thanks for turning out last night. Sorry about the night race, I couldn't resist.

We need a custom track for next week, so put your bids in by Weds night, and we can choose one for the weekend.

Let's be courteous too. Rubbing is racing an' all, but we shouldn't be pissing each other off.

Yea, if my tactics were too aggressive my apologies... I wasn't trying to (and I don't think I did) ram berry. We had contact a few times passing one another but that's kind of how it plays out isn't it? We were running nearly identical lap times at Monaco so we're obviously gonna be ontop of one another at most places.

Berry - I apologize if my race wasn't considered clean! I'll clean it up for next week!

Had a good time last night again. I finally managed a good showing in the final race. I think it was the first race I didn't spin or go off course in the first lap.

I really liked the Brewmeister. I'd run that again if others are game. I would suggest setting the time as mid day thought. It seemed quite dim and I had trouble seeing things some times. It might be nice to run a new track for a few weeks so that we can get good on it. Personally I find it takes a minimum of 20 laps to really get consistent on a track, and up to 50 laps before I reach my maximum potential. If others would like a new track every week I will certainly go along though. Whatever the group (and the host) prefers.

That was the first time I tried a night race. Unfortunately GT5 is terrible at night. It's like the cars are using 99cent flashlights instead of headlights. As it stands now the night racing is terrible.

Mini Cars One Night?

I will change the llighting conditions for the Canadian who isn't used to sunlight this early in the year!!!! LOL

The editor just throws random shit at you until you get something you like. I liked the drop-off/climbs and sweeping turns for Brewmeister. Using the banking helps with playability.

Anybody interested in running Minis one night?

I thought the brewmeister was fun! Very playable and the corners were forgiving enough that you could correct mistakes and still be able to power through without too much of a penalty.

Fun stuff!

I have a shorter version called "Ring Burner", but you can only share one at a time with friends [and Matt].

Thats cool. If everyone has downloaded your track - do you still need to share it to use it? Or can you share the new one for everyone to download as well?

I really liked the Brewmeister. That's why I was hoping we could do it for a few weeks. That's provided others are OK with it.

HAHA on the lighting. Maybe it's my screen, but I found it dim. There were a few times where I couldn't make it out well. I assumed it was because it was dawn so there were lots of shadows.

Since I joined this group late I haven't had a chance to race stock M3's yet. So my vote would be for stock M3's on Sport tires (make it like real life).

Sport tires would be interesting... lol. Racing mediums are usually pretty tough after a few laps of degradation. I'm down for whatever... i'd like to race stock M3's next week as well!

LOL

I drive on snow and ice 4 or more months per year. Maybe you don't want to give me an unfair advantage.
