    Hello Gentlemen, well welcome to the first race series of Forza 4 on TSO. This one, I believe, will be a doozy.

    RACES WILL BE HELD EVERY THURSDAY EVENING AT 10:00 P.M. EST STARTING NEXT THURSDAY THE 27th. WE WILL HAVE 10 RACES MINIMUM SO THIS IS A SIGNIFICANT COMMITMENT THAT SHOULDN'T BE TAKEN LIGHTLY

    BACKUP DRIVERS

    1. Gravityyy - 1990 Mercedes 190E 2.5-16 Evolution II

    We have 16 cars to choose from (1 per person) on a first come, first-served basic PROVIDED YOU ARE ACCEPTED INTO THE RACE SERIES.

    Please read carefully. Not everybody will be accepted straightaway. If we have 16 people sign up right away that 1) I know and 2) I think will be there as much as they can then those 16 people will be in. If it's somebody I don't know, somebody who has never raced with us, or has had shoddy attendance in past series that they have signed up for, they will be put on the waiting list assuming that we will accept them later as the series fills up.

    So

    1) State your intention to join the series
    2) Wait for me to confirm you as an immediate addition or as the waiting list (don't take offense if you're on this list, you're likely to be let in soon... Remember, 16-person grid)
    3) Then choose your car.

    On the following post I will list the starting PI and the available cars as well as upgrade criteria.

    STARTING PI: 650

    Everybody will start race 1 at 650 PI. As we go along, I will update everybody on what their weekly PI will be, the higher up in the standings, the greater PI hit the person will take. For instance, if you are struggling, your PI will keep increasing, as long as you don't cause major accidents (I will dish out PI penalties if major accidents are caused through obvious malfeasance :) )

    AVAILABLE CARS
    1991 BMW M3
    1988 BMW M5
    1997 BMW M3
    1992 Ford Escort RS Cosworth
    1993 Ford Mustang SVT Cobra R
    1987 Ford Sierra Cosworth RS500 - allowable drivetrain swap to AWD since this car was AWD in the BTCC
    1994 Honda Civic 1.5 Vti
    1992 Lancia Delta Integrale EVO
    1990 Mercedes 190E 2.5-16 Evolution II - has race adjustable rear wing stock
    1988 Mitsubishi Starion - would need engine upgrade to go above 650 PI
    1999 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution VI GSR
    1993 Nissan Skyline GT-R V-Spec
    1998 Subaru Impreza 22B Sti
    1992 Toyota Supra 2.0 GT Twin Turbo - necessary '98 Supra engine swap
    1994 Toyota Celica GT-Four ST205
    1992 Volkswagen Golf GTI 16v Mk 2

    *This list was compiled based upon cars that were actually in the BTCC during this approximate time period, and are also found within the game

    -

    UPGRADE GUIDELINES

    ALL CARS MUST HAVE (if possible):
    Forza Race Front Bumper
    Forza Race Rear Wing
    Race Tire Compound
    Race Clutch
    Race Transmission
    Race Differential
    Race Brakes
    Race Springs and Dampers
    Race Anti-Roll Bars
    Race Roll Cage
    Race Weight Reduction

    SPECIFIC UPGRADE GUIDELINES

    Tire Width - Must be upgraded into the Top 3 available widths. For instance, if there are 5 available upgrade widths, you must have one of the 3 widest allowable tires. If there's only 3 upgrade widths available, then obviously, you just need to have upgrades of any kind in this category. Just can't be stock.

    Engine Swap - Not Allowed

    Drivetrain Swap - Not allowed unless just cause is presented, I.E. if the car really ran a different drivetrain when it was raced in the BTCC.

    Aspiration Conversion - Allowed

    PAINT JOBS

    Please find a relatively period specific (late 80's early 90's) race paint job for your car on the storefront or do one yourself. Keywords such as BTCC or DTM should find you something... My primary concern is that it looks like a race car. If you want to do your own, that's obviously fine, but I don't want people feeling like they have to waste time on the paint; pick something cool off the storefront.

    DRIVING RULES

    Please drive with an eye toward what others are doing as much as possible. We realize that those that are newest to the game will have the most difficult time with this, as they are concentrating on their own thing to keep the car on track.

    Defending: Defending means generally taking the inside line on a track. It doesn't mean swerving back and forth in front of your opponent. Generally speaking, we allow one move to defend on a straight, but if somebody clearly has a run on you, just let them go and try to get them back later. We don't want people swerving in front of each other or anything like that.

    Talking on the mic: Should be kept to an absolute minimum. The mic is there for us to inform others we are going to pass them, or that we're losing control, in and out of the pits, or for whatever other race-related reasons we might use it for. We can talk afterwards if we like.

    I bowl, starting at 6:20. Get done between 9 and 9:30, then head home, which is a ten minute drive.

    S N G is currently asleep but he indicated he wanted the 1987 Ford Sierra Cosworth RS500 - so since I know he will show up every week and I know he will be signing up, that car is reserved for him unless somebody has a beef with it.

    I would like to join please. I would like to drive the 1999 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution VI GSR. I am new to the RRCC and have been playing Forza since the release of Forza 3. I did not run any races with you guys because I was a little intimidated. I think I will be okay now. My driving level is at 51 on Forza 4. I would be able to make just about every race that would not interfere with any Legacy league games.

    As I look at cars there will be exceptions that pop up. For instance, due to its weight, the 92 Supra can't get to 650 PI with its default (very weak) engine. Needs the '98 Supra engine upgrade in order to get there, so I will allow it for that car.
