2 hours, limited number of Saturdays plus it would make us have 4 eduros with a strong chance of ties in championships

Just a couple of questions...

1. Starting with Daytona when a team has brought together a group of 5 to do stints in this endurance race, does the team then 'race each other' in round 2 if they have signed up for the sprint series? (After removing 2 drivers of course)

2. Why has the Ford GT had so much attention in terms of making it competitive at each track when other cars have been left out. The Z4 around Daytona comes to mind, its over a second off the pace here. I'm pretty sure the Porsche will suck at places too, now you just decided to downgrade it altogether across the whole series.

The first point is covered in another thread here somewhere. In short, you can combine two sprint teams to make an enduro team for an event, but only the team's name that is chosen will receive points for the endurance cup. Which team gets credited is up for the participants to decide.

As for balancing, I haven't had much part in it, but I know the BMW was given more speed for Daytona (even though it didn't particularly need it considering it's good at nearly every other track in the calendar), and the Porsche takes some time to get used to, but I'm sure it's still quick with its current build. It's around the same PI as the revised BMW and almost 20 PI higher than the Huracan in the same bucket, so it should be fine.

Quick question about builds: Are rims allowed to be changed if the PI is unaffected?

No, sorry, only reason for this is because the stock rims look more natural for these cars (I wanted to use Rays on a Lola since it looked alright bu ya know, rules Razz)

That isn't really the reason... It's so someone can't add a rim size, drop the PI, and allow for other upgrades. That means every car would have to be checked every race, and that's too much to ask.

True true. I wouldn't have thought of that myself, but I suppose it works since the lobby screen doesn't show any exterior upgrades on people's cars. Only way of spotting it would be through the individual handling/speed/accel/braking stats of each car.

Just note people cars are balanced over the whole season not just for Daytona. Although for Daytona different builds are used for some cars.

Very tempted, I've missed ISCC, but apart from Daytona the calendar pretty much lands exactly when I'm working on my rota Sad

So Far I have noticed this for the Entries. Below are the differences in manufacturer picks for both Enduro and Sprint Series based on each class

*NOTE THESE ARE AS OF 2am EST US*

Prototype Endurance - 8 Total Entries
Corvette DP - 4
Riley - 3
Rebellion - 1
Lola - 0

Prototype Sprint - 21 Total Entries
Corvette - 8
Riley - 8
Rebellion - 3
Lola - 2

GTLM Endurance - 7 Total Entries
Porsche - 4
Corvette - 2
Ford - 1
Lambo - 0
Ferrari - 0

GTLM Sprint - 26 Total Entries
Porsche - 15
Corvette - 2
Ford - 7
Lambo - 1
Ferrari - 1

It seems to me Porsche is very popular. I doubt its because its OP because I tested the car and I am faster in the Vette than anything (that's due to more experience and confidence in the car. Porsche kicks the arse end out too much). But I would love to see more varity in GTLM in the Sprints and Prototype in the Endurance Cup. Yeah we have rebadging in the P Class but its the chassis is what I'm counting. Where are the Ferrari Enduro Teams, BMW, and Lambo Endurance Teams

no what hes asking I think is... exp... drivers 1,2,3, are in full time in car x.... drivers 4,5 added for rounds 1/3/10 do drivers 1,2,3 compete in separate cars during the spint races ie 2,4,5,6,7,8,9 as in they are two hours how do you get three drivers in to a car for a two hour race thanks
