@DjWess - no problem, man. Thanks to you for going to all the effort. I've seen these type of threads / leagues be very popular over on gtp. As you know, threads are not an ideal way to conduct these type events. Kind of like the difference between posting a forum thread for a setup vs. entering one on GTVault. One is generic, and can get the job done, but can be error prone and tedious. The other is purpose made and focused, and once data is stored properly in a database the possibilities are endless.

It begs for a proper database driven web app treatment. Picture being able to enter / search for all parameters for an event. Picture individual / team leaderboards, etc. Seems that kind of thing would bring something unique and valuable to the community. Lots of work though, for sure.

I would join this time but I'll have to catch the next one, since I can't seem to pass the AMG and there's no one around me to do it for me, I'm at a standstill, so I'm on Final Fantasy XIII till I get all the trophies there...

I have a good car to use in April though, the new Corvette Proto

BTW if anyone has a PSP still I highly suggest to mod/softmod it so you can play GT or GT2 on the go (or in bed Smile).

End of the challenge. Get ready for the one hosted by Stigs since he won
Updated 01/31/2013 5:51 PM Post a reply Quote this post View DjWess's info
The leaderboard has been updated for the last time since this is the last day and no one is making/producing faster lap times. So the leader board is set in stone. Since I cannot win my own challenge the Placement is as followed:

1st Place: Stigs
2nd Place: Brette
3rd Place: Nissemand

Give me about week to send all the prizes out and please post on the next challenge. The next challenge is under Stigs since he won overall. So keep on the look out for his tuning challenge!

I'll explain. We are having a month off from tuning challenges due to many (as well as personal reasons)

I still owe you your prize. Sorry for being late.

Reason #1 is personal. At Missouri University of Science and Technology, March to us is very important. St. Pats gives us 4 days off to drink, party, and stuff (stupid stuff). Also We have spring Break at the end of that month. It was best decided not to do one this month on that reason alone

Reason #2 is not personal. With Daylight Savings time coming back into play, all tuners had loss an hour we cannot get back until October or November I think. Also I have seen today that many sleep schedules were thrown off when I went to class today.

Reason #3 is half and half. We do need to take some down time from tuning challenges. Especially having 2 in a row. Also for people in school/College this month is the Mid-term era. Professors love giving Mid-terms in the middle of March.

Overall, March is more of a break from tuning challenges and one of my main reasons why I won't post any in March if I won the last one or Re-booting from an old one. I still need to turn in my tune to Stigs for the last challenge to see if I can host the next one.

If I do host the next one I'll take that Lotus into the equation. As far as track choice I was thinking Trial Mountain (your choice), Côte d'Azur, Tsukuba Circuit, Laguna Seca Raceway, or Grand Valley Speedway.
Have fun while you race others. If you don't why are you racing in the first place?

Meanwhile in Aus school/uni is back on again and as a result suddenly there is no time for anything until we all get back in that rhythm., with also some extra curricular activities kicking into overdrive before uni gets too tough so that we can make the rest of the year easier by working hard now.
And yeah Dj, as the only other person to actually drop a time you'll be hosting the next one. I apologise for doing a terrible job as host last month.
