    TRFL Racing League Official Race Night 3: 11-24-09 Tuesday. 10 pm est - Team Night?

    THIS RACE NIGHT WILL BE TUESDAY NIGHT @ 10 pm est:
    I don't expect people to sit at home the night before thanksgiving

    OK I have an idea that we did back in Forza 2

    Team Night:

    Due to this league probably shrinking it self to 8-10 active racers.

    I would like to limit this to 8 racers that can HARD COMFIRM that they can make it next Wednesday 11-24-09 10 pm est.

    These are the rules:
    I will have a A group (4) and a B group (4) of racers. Once we have a set list of 8 we will assign teams.

    For Example:
    Helli and Blaza are on a team/ Then must have the same car, same tune, and same design. We will run 3-4 races and cumulative points of the team will determine your finish. For Example if Helli comes in 1st and Blaza comes in 8th, this might result in a 3-4th place finish in the team standings. This a mode that you can choose in Forza so it will be easy to keep track of.

    Definites:
    Group A
    1. Helli
    2. Mitcheout
    3. Del
    4. Casino

    Group B
    5. jms493
    6. Rynoaid
    7. Blaza
    8. Blygilmore

    Others:
    1. Murkya
    2. Total doubt

    TEAMS
    Helli/Bly
    Mitch/Ryno
    Del/Blaza
    Casino/JMS


    Mugello and Road America
    A Class: Ferreri, Lamborghini, and Porsche.

    CARS NOT ALLOWED:
    Lambo Murcielago LP640
    lambo Gallardo Superleggera
    Ferrari F50
    Porsche GT3 RS 997

    Maple Valley and Silverstone

    A class FWD only
    Mazda, Honda and Acura only. All cars allowed

    I'd like in. I'm not very up to date about all the rules and such, so if there is anything I need to know fill me in. No big deal if you can't fit me in.

    The only rule is, if you say you're gonna show, do.

    I don't understand how guys who would NEVER skip out on another guy in a football game sign up for races then don't show for these. Not talking about the guys with excuses like Mitch, I'm just talking guys that are signing up then not showing, and not saying anything about it. This is another league like any other one here.

    Ok the list is full for eight....BUT

    If we get a larger interest for the week then I can modify the plan. Right now we have 8 definite and 1 newbie (murkya).

    I will let this run for now if by some miracle we get 12 players. We can have 2 rooms with 6 racers. 3 teams in each. The top 2 teams move on for an 8 full room final and 2 other teams can race in a bottom final.

    Lets see how it goes. I want to finalize this b/c this will require more time in preparation as for choosing the car and coordinating with your fellow teammate.

    If anything there's less of a demand than football. in football you can't say "sorry I can't play a game this week." with forza if you might not be able to make it, don't sign up.

    that's what I did this week. I wasn't sure if I had a work charity dinner thingy to go to or not, so I didn't sign up.

    thats the best that i can come up with....please add your ideas. I have not set this in stone yet but would like to.

    I need people to think about tracks too. I am thinking each team will need to build 2 cars. 2 races on each car.

    I am thinking an A class and an S class or 2 A classes....

    Yeah I guess that's about the best you could have done man I retract my statement.... But you're the CLEAR favorite. If you two don't win that's pathetic lol.

    Clear favorite is stretching it a bit. Considering Casino will probably not have enough cash to buy and tune we will probably have inferior cars.

    we were just fucking with del for 1 straight away. We won't do that. But the pansy thing i cant avoid.......u have seen me drive with u following.

    Ok..The teams are set.

    I am thinking an FWD A class and something else...i am going to hop on to do some research. Will post final parameters soon.

    I retracted that bit about the pansies just to avoid making del look bad, I heard that on the mic and was like WTF and then watched the replay, he never said anything to me about it. He was just talking about how he hated that he crashed ya.

    But we have to figure out if we're really racing for points/realism or if we're cheeky monkies who like to jerk each other's chain during the race.

    Edit: Can I ask a question, how come whenever there's a team race it's always FWD... Can we go ahead and break that tradition? (edit 2: ) I think I'm mis remembering now... We had the choice to do whatever before and me and Ryno chose FWD... My bad...

    Also... I liked how we did before where it was one car for 3 races, that was what made the choice of the car so interesting/important (and why the Saab dominated).

    I think it was FWD for everyone b/c Steelah and I choose the Chevy Cobolt. I just want to avoid everyone picking AWD.

    stop putting the pressure on us bitch!

    The tough thing about 1 car is avoiding you and mitch or del having the best bar by 5 secs and you killing us....not sure.

    If you hop online we can discuss.....that would be helpful

    ok i am going to have to make an executive decision then.

    I thought about Viper vs Corvette. You can choose betwen 3 Vettes and 2 Vipers. I dont know....there isnt enough cars in this game!

    Ok well Mitch's fiendish determination to win anything he competes at, and my um.. fiendish devotion to forza, are what get us the lap times. But I do like the idea of having some general rules for cars. No Audis, no Vipers is a good start man. I like the idea of allowing AWD just so everybody can keep their cars on the road. And a weight range from 2500-3250 would be nice to keep out the seriously undersized freaks like the Datsun 510, MiTo, etc. and the overweight beasts with 800 HP.

    Cap HP at 700
    Weight range 2500-3250
    No Audis or Vipers
    No Porsche Cayman
    Them's my ideas.


    I like the idea dude but Vettes are no competition for Vipers in this game. Vipers are basically the best lap time car in this game for the most part... (in A/S class) and you see hardly any vettes up there.
