    Blackhawk Farms is an awesome road course. There's tight racing and multiple lines. There's great scenery, good rumble strips and run-off areas, and really good places to hide the pacecar.

    USA Int. is a long short track, it is very wide and also has great scenery. It's the kind of track where you can power into and out of the corners in any line you could think of, but you always have to bunch up in one line during the tight turns.

    Mansfield Motorsports Park is a fast little bullring. There's nowhere to hide and is always action packed. It is the same track as Caraway, but with remodels.

    Symmons Plains doesn't make much sense for a K&N schedule since it is an Aussie roady, but it is amazing. It's a simple, short left and right hander, with a some easy corners, some technical ones, and some down right scary ones. Turn three is after a long straight where cars bunch up, it is a right downward hairpin where you can't get much more than 15mph out of it but can preform some amazing passes. It ranks near the Watkins Glen inner-loop as one of the most high action turns.

    I've driven all of those road courses and none will fit properly. I also tried the wet track and I have a setup that can make it around without spinning out or even understeering.

    USA and IRP seem like they could work, not sure about Ace.

    I dont think we can do fixe setups due to the pacecar model and all the different makes etc, however I will provide sets for each track.

    We were talking about how some tracks were overused by leagues earlier. Personally, I think Charlotte is the most over ran track in Heat, you can't go a season in any league without having one race at Charlotte, and sometimes even two. A good welcome race would be Richmond, Bristol, or Caraway.

    Sorry if this seems like a mess, the admins are talking it out here too Razz

    Untona would be awesome Smile . Not so sure about Mosport though that track was a pill to drive with the VTA's. Riverside Nascar would be neat or like Cody mentioned Blackhawk farms.

    Mosport is a fun track,very tight and you seem to fly by. We would have to do single file restarts though. But, I didn't have any troubles with keeping the car on the ground at BHF. I usually run a tight setup, but I ran a loose one that run.

    You guys have a great schedule worked out.. FYI, not sure which version, but one of the Mosport tracks have a problem with the 1st stall under normal racing conditions. Make sure you test that out online.. Wink


    Have a great season. BTW: Took a quick look at the K&N mod, looking good!! Cool

    Your welcome... Once it starts getting a little bit colder out, I'll stop in for 1 or 2 races. Just not racing for points or anything. Wink Will this series be using a pace car also, or is it at the drop of the green flag kind of racing?

    We always use the game's rolling start unless there are grid issues. But if you mean live cautions, then yes there will be
    @ Breeze I hope sometime in September
