ETCC the return

Looking to make a bigger series with tin tops with as many cars we see in BTCC

Test stage will be in the coming weeks through to lead up to xmas.
Prov start date of 2nd week in Jan and a run of 6 weeks.

Making ample use of the crate turbo engine where possible and 4wd conversion sending power 100% to front or rear. The combo makes the equalising much easier.

Whats a nice suprise, is that where car x is slowest on track A is then fighting for top spot on track B. It will be down to YOUR fav car/sound/affinity to.

5% power reduction for top 3 will mix it quite well unless youre a cry baby who expects to win EVERY race.

Yes you are. One of the harder cars to drive of the bunch until rears are warm, quite nimble Focus, Astra and Civic each have tracks where they win.

This sounds pretty interesting - I've been spending most of my 'me' time on iRacing but could be dragged back to Forza for this, especially as this is the site that got me in to organised racing in the first place

It sure is fella

Any idea when the builds/tunes will be released for this - I'm guessing this will be a fixed tune series?

Doesn't really matter if you can't remember, but do you know which do and don't have the turbo engine?

There's three in there getting my immediate attention - Focus, Infiniti and Alfa.

Also, can I suggest that the best advertising usually hides the crud (Astra) where most people miss it rather than making it the first thing people see

You'd be surprised by the ashtray i like the Merc (but have owned 4 in RL so an affinity toward) the infinity easy to drive, the Lexus which will be similar to infinity. For laughs and sound of snarling engine popping BOV and chattering wastgate, the turbo cars are real fun and 150mph quite nippy too!

So you can't tune your own car ? You have to drive someone else's tune? So wheel or pad users could be screwed regarding breaking depending on how it's set and what you are used too ? Nothing against the comp I just ain't good with other people's tunes. Comp sounded exciting till that , not sure about it now .

Will let you know about GT as il need to sort with the boss lady

Well you'll have to try all them until
One suits best. Thing is, it needs to be level playing field that doesn't just reward good tuners. Each Car is similar especially the cars using the crate turbo engine. On one track one car is dominant but struggles at next....... There are a couple that I may cut as they go from one extreme to the other and hard to reign in due to the usual nonsense in Forza builds
Suck it and see Ant

Grand scheme of things of list features missing in 5 it's the least of our problems

Just run the a couple of tunes and they are very good. But what is wrong with the Fords wastegate?? It sounds like you are crunching the gears every time you lift off

also any chance you could post a full list of the cars smoking, just to make it easier to find the cars
