    If you are interested in running this, please post. I've gotten PM's from a couple of people with their car lists. Right now selection is pretty wide open so odds are good that you'll get your first choice (and it is first come, first serve on the cars).

    I am not sure If I can make it on Friday. I am supposed to play Bondz on friday night on NCAA...

    I could also use some assistance for a car tune. I had Del already give me a tune and car on the 68 shelby, but I think it may be too good for what we are using on here...

    No offense but this is what we've been fighting all along with the Tradition Racing thing is this kind of thing. Pretty sure that when you scheduled this on the 27th of last month you knew that you would likely have a football league going on, we're trying to get people to show up when they say they will which has just been really difficult, because it seems like people give their word and keep it about NCAA, but pretty much every game (including Fifa for instance) People just sign up and then cancel later.

    If you find that you have time to race I can certainly help with the car, but I won't screw around with anything until I hear that you can make it, not a fan of the time wasting ;)

    I understand... but for me Deuce is a priority. I couldnt predict a week or 2 ago when exactly this game would fall. I am actually playing bondz earlier than that. It is just tough. I enjoy Forza and want to be involved but a lot of this stuff is just loose pick up style races. I am working 50-60s and 2 ODs. It isn't lack of desire just commitments and time.

    As far as the car being too good, etc, that's fine (I'm used to losing to Del, so losing to one of his tunes won't hurt too bad!

    If it's any indicator, the setups I've tried (and yes, I will be getting some more tuning in this evening) have me in the 1:30-2 range at Road Atlanta and 2:20-21 at Sebring

    I'm 70% sure I'll be there tonight and not sure about tomorrow. I thought my brother was coming over for his birthday next weekend so I'm not sure of are plans yet. I think I'll be able to make it tonight but I don't have much of a clue about tomorrow yet so I'll make sure to let you guys know if I can make it or not. Sorry about possibly bailing on a race the day of.

    I really want to make atleast one though to see how my tune stacks up. I'm running 1:31-33 or so I on RA so I think it turned out decent for my first real attempt. Although I'm prone to crash at random times in it which probably isn't a good thing.
