    ENTRY LIST: Daytona [Race 1 of 10]

    Post  Burnout on Tue Nov 19, 2013 5:19 pm

    Sunday starts the fourth Turbocharged Series season - a 10-race Cup bridging the 2013 and 2014 Full Throttle Cup seasons during the winter. Word is the new version of Turbo Sliders may be released shortly building anticipation for drafting coming to SCARTS in time for the Daytona 500 in 2014. So this season MAY be our last of the current SCARTS era. We'll see how the development process goes in the next couple of months.

    I have originally decided to debut setups in the Turbocharged Series this year - which we are still going to do but changes are being made to the idea. We will be developing FOUR racecars each specializing in various types of racetrack (short track, road course, intermediate, and superspeedway). One type of car will be assigned to each track. Martinsville will utilize the short track car, Daytona would utilize the superspeedway car...etc.

    Testing will still commence on Wednesday to see how everything goes. Cars will be available for download by Friday.

    But for now, sign your entry into the Daytona season opener here!

    RACE #1 @ DAYTONA
    ==============
    When: Sunday, November 24th @ 22 GMT
    Race Length: 160 laps (400 miles)
    2012 Winner: Burnout (Penske Racing)

    I have no time to claim a setting also i dont like the whole idea! More dl more waiting more problems here and there! I maybe participate i f we drive on "normal" settings but i just cant work out things for each race! This idea favors active players wich i dont like at all cos i cant 8put more time in it!

    Simms usually drives that car, but im negotiating with him to take another one just for the turbocharged series (he will definitely drive it in full throttle cup 2014)

    I'm in as pace car, and looking forward to it!

    Oh and Lanz, the idea is modified now - you wont have to do extensive testing in order to determine what car to drive, there are still 4 types of car still yes, but they are specifically designed for each type of track. It will be the case that if you take say, the superspeedway car at a short track, you simply will NOT be competitive, therefore, dont do it. So theres no problem to work things out before each race, sure you will have to adjust to the different cars handling, but thats no different than adjusting to different tracks.

    This idea does allow us to do some pretty cool things, like no longer will road course race cars be quite so clunky and bouncy, since we can now mod that specific car, or chassis. Of course it also more reflects reality, where no team would dream of turning up to a superspeedway with the same car it ran at a short track.

    And best of all, if the idea is bad, we can scrap it for the FTC.

    The only real effect of posting in the entry list is that we know you intend to attend and that we'll wait a few extra minutes before starting the race if practice/qualies go quickly, in case you have internet issues or something happens. But you can just show up at race time and that's not a problem.

    Hey guys,

    Was wondering if I could join the league?

    Not sure if any of you remember me, but I'm the newbie (Peter Santamaria-Woods) who tested with some of you guys on Wednesday!

    If I am allowed to join, someone needs to guide me through exactly what I need to do in terms of downloads or settings because I am also new to TurboSliders Cool

    Anyhow, let me know! Thanks Very Happy

    Yes you can join. I've already posted Daytona in the Downloads section of the mainpage. Shyguy is at work preparing the carset for Daytona so that should be available soon. If not, I will prepare it myself on Saturday.

    Sure. Shyguy is finalizing the cars we will be using tomorrow and the rest of the Turbocharged Series season. The other cars already available on here were used in the past. So just wait, I will post a download link later today.

    Burnout, I think its gonna take me another day or so to finalise the cars, I wanna get it just perfect. Maybe create a carpack for Daytona using C, which is a pretty good car for plate racing.

    Already doing so Very Happy It will be released within the hour.

    BTW, I'm using this naming scheme for example:

    SCARTS-FT2013-SS-#2-Miller_Lite

    With the cars named this way, all SS (superspeedway) cars will be grouped together in the car selection screen (and you can read the SS).

    Since we had a few new people in the practice races, I wanted to make sure that a couple things were clear on pit lane, especially for pitting under caution.



    When a yel is called and the pits are open, stay in single file. If you don't want to pit, you don't have to, just go to the grid and park in order.

    If you are pitting, you must enter with your car inside of the "commitment cone" which is the red tire at the edge of the grass on pit entry. This is a legal entry:





    This is an illegal entry, subject to a drive-through penalty:





    On pit entry, stay in line and do not pass any cars until they slow to enter their stall. Try to move out of the way as you begin to slow down.



    On pit exit, you are allowed to race and pass other cars. UNDER CAUTION, you race to the yellow line at the end of pit road:





    The order that you cross that yellow line is the order for the restart. Park in order on the grid behind the cars that did not pit.


    (If this next bit confuses you, then just ignore it because we'll help you out during the race) We also use, similar to NASCAR, lucky dog and wavearound rules. So if you are one or more laps down, under caution you can get laps back. The first car one or more laps down is the Lucky Dog, who gets a free lap back with a pitstop OR two laps back with no pit. The Lucky Dog does not pit with the lead lap cars.

    Every other lapped car is eligible for the wavearound, which is a free lap back with NO PIT. This is good if you're stuck laps down but can be risky since you will have low fuel/old tires and will need to pit soon.


    This is the restart order that we use:

    Lead lap cars, did not pit
    Lead lap cars, with pit
    Lucky Dog (first car one or more laps down at the time of the yellow, gets either one lap back with pit OR two laps back with not pit)
    Wavearound cars, lead lap (cars one lap down that did not pit get a free lap back)
    Lapped cars (includes wavearounds who were more than one lap down)

    (Like I said, if this bit didn't make sense, it makes more sense when you see it in action and we'll help you understand it)
