As Simon is asleep I thought I would do the honors 😃

Had a very quick run last night and for me all cars feel great, so are going to be a lot of fun  ;D

I have updated the server to the newest build. I am working on downloading and installing the new GT3 cars from the pack. However, S397 and steam are being completely non-intuitive dicks about it right now.

The server is up. I had turned off liveracers in the CustomPluginVariables.json. That has been rectified and should work properly now.

Only tried the Callaway and Bentley so far and I'm loving them , even without a decent setup. Hope the rest is as good. The external sound of the Bentley could be better though.

The more I drive it the more I understand how GOOD the cars are. The ffb is better than anything I have felt before. I feel like I can feel the tire flexing.

So far I pretty much like them all equally. BTW, Camaro has not been balanced yet.

Weird, I thought the external sound was very good.

Really weird. Might have to look up some videos on the Bentley passing by on the track. As I recall it from the Spa 24h they sounded a bit different.

Anyhow, I feel that we really should have some off-season/non-championship races with these cars.
But first I have to got to try to find a decent setup.

I don't know how the real thing sounds...

It's more similar than I remembered, but still I think it's not really accurate. Nevertheless, great fun to drive such a boat. :D

I agree we should definitely do some racing in these as soon as we can and they could not have come at a better time for me, as I am slowly, but surely, falling out of love with the EGT mod. 

Whilst it provided great feedback and the cars are all decent, I am becoming increasingly frustrated with the setup process.  When making changes on some tracks they just don't effect the car in the way it should, where as with the new GT3 cars, small changes have the expected results.  So for EGT you end up just trying random or nonsensical things and then have a car with some funky setups.  For me this guest work just takes to long and I am loosing interest fast.

As for the sounds, I think they all sound great.  I watch a lot of GT3 endurance racing and if you go on-board in these cars the sounds are pretty close  8).

Whatever the setup process with EGT cars have been, there is no denying that the racing has been great.

I have felt setup changes have had more or less the effect I have predicted. I just generally suck with setting up any car and it probably will remain black art for me. How could I set up the car proberly when I don't even understand half of the terms. Well exaggerating a little, but that one setup page is a mystery, the one with repounds and stuff

Setup options with gt3 cars are more limited so setups will be easier. But we are definitely going to finish the EGT series. It's only two months, enough time to plan for the next series, most likely with the gt3 mod.

Looks like I am in trouble with Matt again  :o.

I think we have all being saying how great the season has been so far and I wasn't complaining about the standard of racing or suggesting we don't finish the current season. Maybe I am reading your response wrong, but to be clear I am complaining about the EGT changes in setup not making sense IMHO and so taking to long, as it ends up being a lot of trial and error.

I do know quite a bit about what everything is supposed to do, and with the EGT mod it just doesn't.  Whilst there are more limited setup options on the new GT3 cars they still need to make sense, and so far I am happy to report that changes I have made have expected results, so now I have a benchmark it makes the lack of sense with the EGT setup changes more glaringly obvious  ::)

So for the avoidance of any doubt, we love you guys, the drivers here are excellent, and we are all looking forward to the rest of the season. Besides, Team Xtreme now has a new rivalry with those Overdrive guys  ;D.
