    Inspired by showing off times in this thread, I have this idea for The FerrariChat GT4 Challenge.

    Here's the basic rules:
    1) everyone drives the same car with no modifications at all. you can only adjust what is there and tires. yes, you are allowed street or sports tires only, nothing else. but... should ASM be turned off completely?
    2) everyone drives the same track, which will be of the same country as the make of the car.
    3) the FC GT4 Challenge will run from Wednesday to the following Wednesday and then the next country for the track and car will be chose.
    4) honesty is everything, so don't lighten up the car or throw on coilover setups and blow everyone away. I have a feeling when it comes down to it, the times will be very very close. camera phones/digital cameras/scanned polaroids might be necessary.
    5) prizes - what kind of prizes to offer out, if any at all? I'm sure I can find a few silly 'white elephant' style gifts that I could ship anywhere. thoughts?

    The poll on this thread: The first track would be Laguna Seca, and of course, that means, an American car must be driven. I've chosen four sporty cars of different configurations, so vote and let me know what you'd like to drive. (but we all know it will end up being the Z06, right?)

    Driving it without mods makes it too damn slow. Sorry Dave, brain is cooked from training last night.

    Can I use my CLK-GTR? :D

    Stock street cars are kinda boring... but Vette Z06 would be the most acceptable, I guess ...

    no mods are kinda boring Z0RR0? Perhaps, but... this will teach you that power isn't everything and you will work hard to get the most out of the car.

    iceburns288 - sorry to hear you don't like the cars nor the track, it is a wonderful track, especially in real life. the cars might not handle like a CLK GTR, but it isn't about the best car here. this is GT4 and it will be about the driver's skill.

    Z06 is the best out of all of them. And I'll refuse to drive fords anyways. Matter of fact I dont think I have a single Ford yet! How about that?

    Well, I love Laguna Seca in GT4 but I would rather spend my time on the Ring. :D

    The cars are fabulous cars in real life, but I own a few of the cars in the list and I don't really enjoy driving them, even modded. The Z06 is probably great, and I'll buy one, but when I've got CLK-GTRs, CLK DTMs, M3s and NSXs I just have other things to drive at the moment.

    So does this mean I can take off the STOCK Sports Tires: Medium(S2) and replace them with the Sports Tires: Soft(S3) ?

    I understand you dont want people to use slicks, but the S3 is the best 'sport' tire in the category. Please clarify!


    Also, if you are worried about the honor system, all you have to do is specify to use FULLY MODDED cars. That leaves no room for cheating right?1

    1'36.533 on my second lap in this car EVER!

    I put the S3 tires on, so I am not sure if you did the same. I hope you are not slacking THAT much! ;)

    ----------------------------------------------
    Edit. I just put the STOCK tires back on to see the difference. First lap out I did a 1'37.045

    you ARE slacking! ;) :D ;)

    ----------------------------------------------
    Edit Part II
    Just ran 1'36.058 on stock tires, which is better than my ghost lap that was done on the tires that are one step better than these!

    For what its worth, I probably clocked somewhere over 250 hours on Laguna on GT3, at LEAST 250hours.
    At least it is paying off here, LOL

    correct! use any sport or street tire, no slicks.

    good point indeed. I was thinking, perhaps another week, we could use a course, pick one car, and have open mods/tweaks. that way, tuning the suspension will be quite a challenge to get every last hundredth of a second out of the course.

    The more laps, the more practice, only one lap counts and that's the one you should post. I'll post up an official thread for Round 1 of the Fchat GT4 Challenge soon.

    Demanding on the SLR, okay, but so long as 1) the car isn't obtained by winning drives; easily obtainable like the Z06 for moderate credits/dollars, and 2) so long as the winner of the week chooses the SLR / 'Ring for the following week's contest.

    If you care to win then you might want to post a better time given that it needs to be below 1'35.932 for 1st place!
