POSTPONED: TORA TASCAR Season 8 - Round 1: Daytona 300

TORA TASCAR Season 8 -  Round 1: Daytona 300

Welcome to the first round of the 8th season of the TORA TASCAR Cup! The first round this season should be no surprise to anyone.  Since its introduction to the Forza franchise, Daytona has become the usual opening for TASCAR.  Just like last year, we are not going to do a full 500 miles, but a tiny more manageable 300 miles.  

Required Tune - I have shared a stock tune for each of the cars in the series.  They are all called "TASCAR S8 Stock" and are required to be used through the whole season.  If drivers show up to race without this tune, they will not be allowed to compete until they have loaded it. 

Qualifying - Qualifying for TASCAR will be a timed session lasting 10 minutes.  Once 10 minutes has expired, racers will finish the lap that they are currently on before stopping on the back straight. If you fail to deliver a clean lap time, your fastest dirty lap time will be recorded and will be placed lower than the slowest clean lap time of your competitors. Please use the qualifying thread to check your qualifying lobby allocation. Remember that drivers should be/appear online 15 minutes prior to qualifying start, and should keep in-party chat to a minimal. Please check the Lobby Settings thread for which overrides are and aren't allowed.
 
Race - This race will consist of 120 laps, including the warm up lap. Drivers are expected to be familiar with the rules and regulations come race time. Please check the Lobby Settings thread for which overrides are and aren't allowed. *For Daytona, cars will be running at the 10% power handicap!*
 
Pit Stops - There are a minimum of 3 mandatory pit stops during the race.

Starting Procedure - The race will start with a typical 80 mph 2x2 Rolling Start towards the end of the warm-up lap.  The leader will call the green flag once he hit that start-finish line.

POSTPONEMENT!

Post by BIGBEN0913 on Fri 8 Feb 2019 - 13:07

After testing the latest glitches introduced in the latest Forza update, TASCAR will be postponed for one month until March 9th.  Though we could run Daytona on cosmetic damage, this would greatly decrease the overall enjoy-ability of the racing. There is also no guarantee that a patch will be made before the next update.  As much as it pains me to do this, I feel like this is for the best.  To make it up to all 100+ of you who signed up, we will take the time to develop a Daytona Spec tune that will actually produce draft racing.  We will start developing this tune at race time tomorrow.  If you are interested in helping out, feel free to come join.

I will do my best to keep everyone updated on what is going on.  The calendar will change a little bit, but should wrap-up before the listed end date.

Gutted that we had to postpone, but it's for the best so that Turn 10 can hopefully get their act together.

Like Ben, I hope a large number of entrants will attend the test tomorrow so that we can try and make the wait worth it!

You can count most if not all of Firelight Motorsports being there to test the new package tomorrow evening.

Hey admins, if you want help on developing a spec tune, Bolts211743 has created one that has put on excellent races in his NASCAR league. I'd recommend going to him for suggestions.

Had cleared my schedule to race, so I should be able to be there for the test. Hopefully I'll also manage to use this opportunity to see what the top guys are doing to go 'round Daytona in under 45.7! Laughing

I'm not sure how TORA does things, but I know the 12hrs of Sebring is the week after March 9th. So would that mean the TORA 12hrs of Sebring would fall under the March 9th weekend?

The test will be hosted by BIGBEN0913, JGROVES1996, and/or me.

What we're gonna do is have people try specific tunes, to see how the draft is affected. It is important that when participating, you drive exactly what is requested, or the data won't be useful.

I may have found a gear set up to produce more side by side racing without compromising pack racing, saw 5 guys in a pack jockeying for position last night with my adjusted gearing

Gearing is as follows:
Final Drive:3.70
1st:2.80
2nd:1.75
3rd:1.27
4th:0.97

Everything else is original TORA specs, Tunes for each manufacturer are up on the storefront under “Tascar test 5”

This gearing cannot be tested properly (with a view to use in the championship) without a member of staff hosting the session - otherwise we cannot and will not validate the findings accurately. Please refrain from doing this until an official test can be organised.

Furthermore, the tune for use in Daytona will continue to be built off of the one made in the official session
