This is a track I have used for several events in the past and which always seems to be popular.

Although the Dukes is very stable in comparison to many of the other Muscle cars the track is mostly very fast and although big time can be gained the extra speed can mean some very simple mistakes prove very costly.

The only allowed car is the Imponte Dukes which is available from Southern San Andreas Super Autos for $62k or free if you had the game on PS3.

I have spread the word on the XDBX site and will on Twitter.

I will submit a time, albeit most likely a sh*tty time.

I don't want to be that guy, except I always am, but technically there can be no hipster award considering I've gone for the one make option this year. 

Although, I do intend to have one round which will give a choice of two vehicles between the p*sswasser Dominator and the Sprunk Buffalo.

I actually got a few laps in last night...

It’s a tough track to get right and there are a couple of spots where you can lose a lot of momentum. It is a great track to drive though and the time just flew by.

It's an unforgiving track is how I'd describe it. You push the car slightly too much over the limits or take a line slightly too wide and you've had it

The car definitely exaggerates that too... we should expected it from Mr ‘Grip is Overatted’ 1975 😂

I am struggling to break the barrier we mentioned the other night, a few weeks to go though and our times should have dropped rapidly by the time we put them in.

I still haven't gotten below my time either. Which was already a good two seconds or so slower than Dave's one 😛

Might try and get on before SCAR tonight...

Would be nice if @Crawford1872 started posting his secret ‘how to’ videos again, they helped me shave off a little time last season. 😉

This is all a bit odd, I picked the Dukes because I see it as being very stable so I am not sure where all of this sliding about you guys are getting is coming from.

Quite stable for a Muscle Car, it’s not exactly Elegy Retro territory when it comes to grip though.

No complaints here though, just ability based whinging.

They need something to complain about cuz they know I am gonna swoop in here and take the lead till the end of time.

Like Chubb, it's stable for a muscle car.

Unfortunately when it's me driving, any hint of a lack of grip and i've had it 😛

I’m leaving it alone until after this weeks SRL...

Swapping between the Feltzer and Dukes is causing me much confusion.

Any way to avoid rain, how does that work if there is no option for weather?

The weather is probably set to ‘Current’ in Creator, with stunt races you cannot change the weather, it just goes with what is set in Creator.

Ah, that's an issue. 

With something done by me or one of the regulars we can forcibly set the weather to Sunny in creator, however unless it's a regular race you don't have the option to adjust it yourself.

If it's any consolation I do intend to deliberately run a Time Trial featuring forced rain so you can consider it practice?

Have you messaged the Creator?

He's not someone I know although I think he may be in NoDo so I might check their forums for him. I had Mount Palomino changed the other year to block the highway for run off so so one can but try.

 

Quick update on the entry situation, we are now as 11 entries following on from Lanns run of the track on Sunday. Based on the people I know are missing so far who will definitely enter we should be looking at around 20, hopefully, more if we attract some newcomers and some other returnees.
