    Hi guys, if you have this achievement and
    are not starting over then are you up for
    a few casual races? A late Sunday night
    league really isnt going to work for me
    anyway, but I would enjoy a few races
    that are competitive, and believe it or
    not these 100% actually feel/drive better
    on the wheel IMO, anyway, had a few
    of you on the friends list, not sure if the
    kid did something or got removed but if
    interested in some races , during the
    daytime during the week (EST) then by
    all means send FR, thanks. Good day.

    I'm down for some online action. Did a little bit last night and got smoked. I don't have any setups yet but man I just couldn't keep up. Bummer part is I don't know if I really have the time to get a setup for each track.

    Gonna have to research a little I guess.

    Sounds good Reecer I will look for you in
    a few hours on live if your around then..

    Im no setup expert myself, really the only
    thing I ever messed with was some grille
    tape until I started blowing engines (lol)

    But if the 100% theory truly is the case
    dont worry you will be smoking me, as
    far as setups I just load the default vet
    and go with it myself, anyway, win-lose
    last place dont matter just want to have
    a little fun, last time online wasnt fun
    listening to kids and adults brag and
    whine the whole race. Cheers.

    Sounds good.

    When you race online with a car other than your custom, do performace points still come into play? Or is it only with a custom car? The truck race had all non custom cars but they were still smoking me. Probably just their setups, but just wondering.

    I was wondering the same thing and I am really starting to think that the performance points are not confined to your custom car. Think of it, you get performance points and it is good for any custom car or truck you have. You don't have to do a seperate one for each car, so I think it translates to any car you are driving. Anyway, I have points on all 4 of the attributes on my cars and actually prefer it that way, especially for longer races. Race some of these guys in races that require many pitstops. It will be like the tortoise and the hare.

    Well I maxed out the engine on the first three and saved the rest of the points. Haven't done anything with the road courses yet.

    I'm a little hesitant to add points to the other categories as of yet. Although I started career on normal and beat the field at Daytona by about ten seconds in a 30 lap race. Pretty boring. I guess I'll have to turn it up to hard.

    Am I the only one that finds Hard way to easy? I can qualify top 5 at every track and if I spend 30 min on the setup I can easily have the pole. Then I run off and leave the pack. Of course, I normally end up losing focus and screwing up. Just kinda sucks to be racing for a 2 star Nationwide team and end up qualifying top 5 all the time.

    I find normal to be challenging to me when I use pro and veteran setup. I'm in Sprint Cup career, not nationwide though so I'm not sure if there is a difference. I'm not really good at tweaking the setup other than adjusting the sliders in the basic back and forth. I'm still trying to get used to my wheel as well. I would love to get together with some people one night and tweak setups. I could probably use all the help I could get.

    Restarts killed me last night. Spinning the tires way to damn much. Something I thought about last night is I should turn up the length of the race. I have it set to 15% right now but noticed on a long run I was catching up to some cars.

    I love how the AI runs into you contanstly and you're the one who gets black flagged. Idiots.

    Yeah the black flags are too picky. I finally had to turn them off and any bumping pretty much gets you black flag.

    I'm using pro/custom right now. Guess I need to move up to Legend and turn off all the assists, as I have a few on low right now.

    btw, anytime you see me online hit me up. I'm normally up for some online racing. As long as it's not a room full of idiots.
