PostSubject: No Upgrades Today Sir (NUTS)   Sun Jul 10, 2011 11:56 pm

Since clubs are popping up everywhere, Pannster and I came up with an idea for another one for mostly Forza 4, but also Forza 3.

NUTS (better get used to NUTS now, also novelty will soon wear off I'm sure) would be a club where we only run stock, road legal cars on most tracks in the game (aside from Benchmark Layout E among others, seriously wtf is up with that). The league does mostly races with upgrades, so this would be an opportunity to see how cars perform stock and to hopefully get interest in cars you've never thought of driving before. We would run a different car every single race. It could go from Rabbits on the 'Ring to Veyrons on King Cobra (Sidewinder H or whatever the hell F3 calls it). The club would be a very laid back one.

Cars could be chosen by popular vote, or by randomness, etc.

An idea we also had was a track day on random tracks, ranging anywhere in theme from car families (Golfs, Nissan Zs, etc) to open class to competitions (McLaren F1 vs Saleen S7, Viper GTS ACR vs C5, etc).

Races would be run whenever everyone decides is a good time during the week so as not to conflict with any ongoing races or other club events.

Tuning would not be allowed (sorry), however liveries and paint jobs would be fine!

Would anyone be interested in this?

Why not just name is SCCA or SCCF and making it more seriousface looking and not just a laughing stock?

Because "Stock Car Club" sounds boring, and the club isn't very serious hat anyway

The IVPC usually runs stock Porsche races and they're a blast. There are some even match-ups between different tock vehicles, you just have to look for them.

Yeah, I did notice Minim's series (which sadly didn't have high participation) was a hit amongst those who attended. Sometimes it's fun just to drive stock cars with no tuning to really see how the car performs or drives, and to see who is really consistent.

Many of PLR's team get togethers have been these types of races. A great deal of casual race nights with the guys from BBR have also been "drive them as they come" events. As Dom mentioned, the IVPC regularly races the Porsche's bone stock. The concept is neither foreign nor unpopular throughout the league. The only reason I did not participate in Min's series is it was late afternoon here for me. I will not be playing Forza when I can be outside enjoying life.

Yea i know everything Mako and i have run in IVPC and i wasn't thinking that the stock concept is foreign or unpopular but in the end if you put the fast guy in any lets say A or S class car even if its stock the chances are he will win or come close to the top, my point was that Minims choice of "strange" cars and pickups in lower class was spot on and contributed to even more excitement than in usual stock races people run and when i saw how much trouble we where giving to Fantomas i was sad that there are not many people there to witness that because it was unbelievable to me Very Happy

Thats way i was saying that you guys have missed not just some normal stock car racing but hey its ok RL comes first in the mean time round up with someone and go with Renault Turbo 5 on Iberian try it?

So there seems to be a bit of interest (mainly MSM interest but lol). Is this enough to officially get the club started?
