Gday mate, welcome to the forums from a fellow Melburnian Wink

There's plenty of organised series racing going on at the moment and there's always a handful of people smashing public lobbies on Forza, Battlefield, FIFA etc.

Looking forward to racing with you mate! Feel free to add me to your Friends List and I'd be down for doing some racing.

Thanks guys - I will do my best to be at the gt86s tonight. I'm still getting used to racing without TCS, so will consider it a win if I finish without taking anyone out  Very Happy

They're not the easiest cars to drive mate, keep doing some practice runs without the assists and you'll eventually start to understand how she behaves without TCS. After this series we'll be running some higher power series, so if you can get the hang of no TCS you'll be good in the nextseries. Plus there's plenty of guys on here including myself who are willing to help you out with tunes and stuff.

I've been running a few laps at the Bugatti circuit and can get around OK, but It's gonna be interesting. I've been playing with tyre pressures and think I have settled on 2.3 front and 2.1 rear. Dare I ask what you guys think is a competitive time for this track in Dektra's GT86?

My tyre pressures are lower, around 2.0 and 1.9 bar, but don't be alarmed. Where ever your tyre pressures end up is totally up to what FEELS best to YOU.

As for competitive lap times, mostly all ozfm race's/series will have entrants with a broad range of skill level. Everyone is almost guaranteed to be racing someone no matter what position your fighting for.

But to give you a reference, I'd expect to see lap times tonight from 1.54 to 1.58s give or take, as  Bugatti circuit is a long lap with some tricky sections.
