already looking into next season

Post by LMR DarthMario on Sat May 18, 2013 4:13 am

Yes, as the title says, I've already started testing cars for the next season (TCC S8/NATCC S3). Looking to switch over to the RWD category and tested and compared to the fastest RWD qualifying times in the NATCC spreadsheet. A grip built 2011 STi ran a lap 0.2xx slower than Duke of Bruno qualified with at Sebring Short and this STi was untuned! (1:19.0xx by Bruno). To make sure it wasn't a fluke, I also tried it at Sedona Club Reverse, and was only 0.4xx off Bruno's qually time there.

Already transferred the VLN livery from the 05 STi into the 2011 and modified it so the factory colors appear. Will post a picture of that livery later when i get home

RWD always for me, im hopeless at FWD lol, hopefully next season they'll balance the cars better so the RWD cars have a better shot, or at least throw in some decent 50/50 tracks.

may ask the rest of Staff to give the RWD's maybe a 1-2pi bump, as the FWD have pretty much dominated (not sure about the TCC, but they have in NATCC)

Mario, the 2011 STi was my first choice for this season, but Bruno was so adamant about the Volvo that I caved in. Been regretting that move all season, especially after I built and tested a Lexus IS300 for Long Chart this week... that Lexus is awesome too.

One thing that hasn't been mentioned yet is that by the time the next season of TCC/NATCC comes around, the next gen XBox will be out, and most likely the next gen Forza as well. And from what I have heard, this is the last season of TORA TCC for FM4 Sad

not unless there isnt much down time between season 2 & 3. i mean, the unveil for the new system is this coming Tuesday, and best guess is it'll launch Holiday 2013 which would give us til Late November to get more FM4 goodness in. this is what i'm hoping for as well, cuz the TASCAR schedule starts the week after the 24hr Le Mans race and ends the week after Petit Le Mans which would be Late October (there are gaps in the schedule for Nationwide races, TEC events & the Petit le Mans race itself)

As for the STi, i've already migrated the TORA VLN livery from the 2005 STi onto the 2011 (did that as well on Horizon) and modified it so the 'Factory colors' show, so i've created i think 6/7 different versions.

Factory Colors for the 2011 STi include:
Spark Silver Metallic
Satin White Pearl
Dark Grey Metallic
Crystal Black Silica
World Rally Blue
Plasma Blue Pearl
Tangerine Orange Pearl (2013 Limited edition color; same Orange found on the new XV Crosstrek's; 100 STi's and 200 WRX's available with this color)

looks like a couple other staff members are trying to push for a 2nd TCC/NATCC season this year before the end of the TORA calendar year. Are there any LMR guys up for some TCC or NATCC?? as stated is previous posts, i have enough paints for the 2011 STi to supply 2 full teams as a "Factory Team" with the Subaru themed liveries & factory colors.

TCC & NATCC are on Tuesdays @ 8pm BST/GMT(TCC) and 9pm EST/EDT(NATCC) on alternating weeks (one week break between meetings)

I will be as enjoyed the last season but slacked in the scoring due to work commitments, im sure we'll have quite a few interested, maybe 3 teams worth or somewhere around that number mate.

i don't mind running a team as LMR or combined as "MKR & LMR" type name for the next season. (edit: could supply a few liveries for the STi for an LMR team for the TCC, and the rest for my team in the NATCC)

here's the livery i'm speaking of:
(used this in the VLN test race for last years' Nurburgring race)
Transferred it to the 2011 STi, and the White base color changes to the other factory colors

Sounds good bud, and ill most likely be running in the BMW team livery again, although I do have a spare livery for the Subaru if a team were to arise.

Couple example shots:
