Trans Am General Discussion

Post by Flyin Mikey J on Thu 23 Aug 2018 - 23:02


Welcome to the 2018 TORA Trans Am Championship!

The return of an old favorite, this year's running features some changes including Spec Builds and a Super Sprint race format.

Previous running used open builds, and while they did provide close competition, the new builds with limited tuneable parts should see even a smaller gap in lap times up and down the grid. The new build rules are also based closely on the actual 1969 SCCA Trans Am Rulebook, which required far more stock and over the counter parts than later years cars were allowed to fabricate. Hoping that delivers a more authentic feel to the drive, while leveling the playing field and emphasizing driver skill over tuning.

Last season's series saw a 45-50 minute mini-enduro with a mandatory pit stop, but with the recurring pit glitches in Forza 7, we have seen lots of issues in races that involve pit stops. So, we have decided to forgo the longer races and pit stops via the twin super sprint format. The 20-25 minute races are still long enough for possible tire wear, however they are shorter than a full fuel or tire run, taking pit stops (and potential pit glitches) out of the equation. In each round, both sprint races will have the grids set via qualifying times, the fastest in each lobby starting on pole position while continuing the rolling starts.

That being said, let the banter begin! Cool

All races and series are for both Xbox and PC users alike.
All you need is Forza Motorsport 7 downloaded and an internet connection for your device. Smile


Drive Clean. Drive Fast.

As I lay rubber down the street, I pray for traction I can keep.
But if I spin and begin to slide, please dear God protect my ride.

If you have everything under control, you're not moving fast enough.

Horrible driving at the back of A lobby tonight from Road America. I was run off the road multiple times and lost a chance to mix it up for P9. Really displeased.

Darkzer you can be disappointed all you want because you put yourself in those positions in turn 1 and 2 and whatever other incident you claim as you forced a 3 wide turn 1 and tried to occupy a spot where another car was and also turn 2 where you took an outside line and again turned down to occupy where another car was so self inflicted run offs dont get sympathy from me and next time you say bad driving dont forget about the dive bomb from a good distance and sideswipe the car you did it to or the [Censored] blocking i saw you doing to someone else. Its a game and you didnt finish well because you forced situations and lost. Big deal. You drive no better than most hoppers some times. So either improve or shut up and take your poor finish like most of us
