Yep the Charger should be fun. It'll draft real well, not sure yet about breaking away from the pack though.  I've discovered this car hits a wall of air so its not as fast as I would expect it to be. Not to mention depending on the lap count, I may have a variety of fuel strategies that I could attempt. 


Also I was surprised while testing, it appears the fuel economy model has been improved more than I had expected since GT5.  Gearing most definitely has an affect on how much fuel you use, which from all my tests was completely absent from GT5.

Monza is up for Friday night first race is with the chicane for 13 laps. Second race will feature the track without the chicane, seems to be a pretty fast layout with these powerful cars and we will see 14 laps.

My guess is you'll be without the Charger this week.  It looks like I'm obligated to the family this Friday.

Nice job by everyone so far and remember next week will be just one race no doubleheader. But it will be for double points. Race is at LaSarthe and should be about 35 minutes official lap count will be announced by Tuesday the 22nd.

It looks as if all bada has to only show up to be the first repeat champion in the Career in a Year series. Nice racing man.

Had a great 1st race with bada until my wheel decided it didn't want to play nice.  Good fun while it lasted bada!

2nd race I got distracted when the wife came home from work and had an off.  Had another off shortly after that since the wife was all  :nagnag  Decided to call it quits after that.  Sorry about that.

Small turnout but good times. :)
