Formula Gulf

As these seemed a good balance between power and grip and really good fun, should we go for these as next series?

Or maybe a mixed series? 2 weeks of F Gulf, 2 weeks of Zakspeed Capri, 2 weeks of Ford Escort etc etc ?

Think the Formula Gulf is pretty cool so more than happy to keep with it?

As I have little time to lend any help to running comps I'm more than happy to go with what those that give up spare time to do it want.

I've run a few races with the Formula Gulf and it is very easy to drive. I'll have to try the others later

Had a quick blast in the rookie on PC and liked them. Could do with a bit more power but should keep the racing close. What time for practice tonight?

Really enjoyed that. Haven't raced since before Christmas so was really missing my racing fix. I like the car and think it can give some close racing.

Certainly seemed as though we can get close racing judging by the way that people finished in completely different positions each race. Definitely a car where you need to have confidence in it though - corner speed seems to be everything.

Seemed fairly even (apart from Slim) last night, although if it's like the Ginettas I'll drop back when the series starts.

Judging by the Zolder race against Milton, it looks as though these are fairly easy to overtake in with a big advantage from drafting - he drafted past me on lap 5 and I was able to return the favour in the same place on lap 6.

Yeah, you do seem to get a decent tow. It'll be interesting to see what tracks we go for. These cars are suited to quite a variety of tracks I think. Hopefully we can get a few more interested in the comp. Genuinely don't understand how more people who are into Forza don't dig this game.

I can only assume that most of the people who don't like it were put off in the first month with the issues with the Xbox controller. Unfortunately, now that interest has moved from Forza to PCars, I can't help wondering if the site name which was such a help in the FM2-FM4 days is now a bit of a hindrance to getting new people here

I tried again with controller yesterday and it's much, much better than it was. I'd say on the gulf cars it's more stable than fm6 to drive with controller.

Couldn't get back in last night guys. I couldn't get in the lobby but could get in the party, I could hear you through my TV but you seemingly couldn't hear me. And the option to join game from both your profiles was greyed out. Guess the live issues caused it. See you Wednesday.

I guessed you were having issues. Tried sending you another invite but you disappeared offline shortly afterwards so guessed Live was up to its old tricks. And to think we keep being asked to go onto the Microsoft cloud at work

No apparently. It must have been live yesterday since I got it last night. Unfortunately, Live still had issues according to the network settings tab so fingers crossed MS get it sorted for tomorrow.

And as if that isn't enough, there's also a 501MB Xbox update which takes forever and a day to apply

I've been asked elsewhere if I know of anyone who plays with a pad and would be happy to share their controller settings. Anyone fancy sharing?
