First the mirrors...mine are just fine thanks...and scrolling through all the other cars in replay, they all work fine. I don't see an issue at all.
Because of lack of head lights lapped traffic should get of racing line for lapping cars.
I disagree. While it's the norm in RL F1...doing the exact opposite of what we've come to do/expect in the Sportscar div might be detrimental.
I'll just copy/paste/edit LDB's post on some other points...
Sportscar off weeks are good. Maybe step up frequency a bit once Sportscar season ends and goes to break.
I like the deal we run on previously run tracks from the Sportscar division...they are tried and trued, already on the server and most people's HDD.
I don't know why you would throw a blanket over all the GTS tracks and just rule them all out...seems illogical...some tracks we've run with both series...
3. NO FIXED SETUPS
As a casual/time restricted racer (also read as: guy who loathes practicing)...I'm not opposed to fixed (default) setups at all. Why not do a test race with fixed sets?
An another hand...regarding 2 and 3 above... I've always wished for a league race format where the venue is not announced until an hour before qually. Show up at 8:00 when that weeks track is loaded and practice starts. Level the playing field a bit for those guys (me) who don't/can't turn 400 practice laps during the course of the week. Not too mention how unrealistic it is to run that many practice laps. Just 60 minutes practice to dial in a setup and go. We condense a full GP weekend into 3 hours. Bring it.
4. CARS, TEAMS AND SKINS
I agree with LDB on this one. Only two of each chassis...it just looks cool...and much easier to know who is who. 36 cars is still a hell of a nice grid.
5. SCORING POINTS
If running for points...which I didn't think was really a priority...just keep with Sportscar div points system.
6. PUNT RULE
Standard VOR rules/penalties.
Going to have to allow tire changes I think. Why not fuel too? Worked fine last night. Strategy can still come in to play. Fuel light or heavy for first stint. If heavy, one could pit early if in traffic and get some clear track...hopefully leapfrog the car(s) you were 'stuck' behind. If fueled light at start, could overtake more with lighter car to get track position. Etc, etc, etc...
Regardless on fuel...not being able to get a new set of tires would just suck arse if you happen to get a flat or just plain wear out a set.
I'd be game to give those F BMW's a go too...but I love the sounds of these 91 cars. Gives me wood.
Anyway...thanks to Wyatt for posting that setup yesterday and grats on the win. It was a fun race back in the pack. A few nice little battles for position. Good stuff
