*CLICK HERE FOR LIVESTREAM LIST* The fourth round of the Oppositelock Endurance Championship III at Long Beach is April 27th at 5:00 PM EDT. If you’d like to learn more about the series, click the link and get all the info. Or, if you’ve already read the plan but haven’t signed up yet, click here to go right to the sign up sheet.
If you’re not racing with us, many of us stream the races on twitch, the links for which are in the livestream list linked above.
Also, instead of using parties or gamechat, we are going to be using the Oppositelock Racing/Digital Burnouts Discord to communicate during the races. If for some reason we are not using the app or it fails, we will be using gamechat to communicate, and hoping for the best. HERE IS THE INFO AND SERVER ACCESS LINK FOR THE DISCORD SERVER.
Time to get back on schedule! And time for a street xircuit for the first time since the F1 series two years ago. If you have a new car or livery, feel free to post it in the official livery thread.
Now up to this point the racing has been very clean for the most part. However, I’m putting forth some rules in order to prevent potential incidents, as this is a very compact track with little room for error. Communication is vital for this race. If you are making a pass, call it. If you wreck, say where on track. It is also important to be patient while passing. The IMSA race last weekend showed what happens if you try and go three wide into a turn. Don’t repeat that. Incidents caused by a lack of communication or patience will be met with a warning. Multiple incidents will be met with a penalty. Even more beyond that will result in a race disqualification. These rules will be HARSHLY enforced on the GTP cars especially. Like I said before, racing has been very clean up to this point, but I’m just preparing for the worst.
BUILD RULES HAVE BEEN FINALIZED. CLICK HERE FOR THE CURRENT BUILDS. Builds have changed very little and most of you do not need to change parts. As before, THE 1993 TOYOTA EAGLE MK III HAS REQUIRED TUNING SETTINGS UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE. THE REQUIRED SETTINGS ARE ON THE BUILD SHEET. Namely, there is a maximum amount of aero you are allowed to run. This was done because the only way to get the Toyota on pace with open tuning was to severly limit its power to the point of it being unsafe in traffic. While it is largely honors system for enforcement, I and everyone else will know if you’re running too much aero. Please don’t try and break this ruling and gain an advantage. If you do that, you’ve missed the point of these events entirely. Also, since the fuel capacities of every car are very similar, there will be no required pit stops for either class.
That’s it for now! Keep an eye on the Discord for any practice sessions or other racing.
