    The FinalGear GT3 World Championship Discussion

    Discussed during the Sept 2nd FLeMons race, expanded to here, it's the FinalGear GT3 World Championship discussion thread.

    I came up with a championship idea after the FLeMons was finished. At first it was a Porsche 911 GT3 Supercup, but as not everyone has the Porsche DLC I thought about a GT3 Series. The game has many base content GT3 cars along with more added with the DLC.

    Here's what i've come up with..

    The FinalGear GT3 Championship

    GT3 Cars with 2 Classes (explained further down)
    1 Hour time limit
    Custom race liveries are encouraged (but not required as not all can paint cars)
    Worldwide track Calendar
    Starting time for races: TBA
    Possibility of a Saftey Car and Rolling Start

    Car List

    GT3 Factory

    Audi R8 LMS
    BMW Z4 GT3
    Dodge Viper Competition Coupe (Both)
    Ferrari 458 Challenge (maybe)
    Mclaren MP4-12C GT3
    Mercedes Benz SLS GT3
    Porsche 911 GT3 Cup (both 2011 cars)

    GT3 Privateer (A/S Class cars upgraded to GT3 Spec)
    Ascari KZ1R
    Aston Martin V12 Zagato
    Cadillac CTS-V Coupe
    Chevrolet Corvette Z06
    Ford GT
    Lamborghini Superleggera 570-4
    Lexus LFA
    Lotus Evora T124
    Maserati MC GT4
    Nissan GTR V-Spec
    Wiesmann GT MF5 (2010)

    Click Here for required upgrades!

    Provisional Track Calendar

    Catalunya
    Hockenheim
    Indy
    Infineon
    Laguna Seca
    Mugello
    Nurburgring G.P
    Road America
    Road Atlanta
    Twin Ring

    Participants/Numbers

    matchan_3 - 3
    Chaos - 7
    tobZZen - 8
    XJSV12 - 13
    Loz - 16
    wheelz2448 - 24
    Aaybad1 - 27
    Donnington - 33
    Matt2000 - 42
    MadCat360 - 78

    The idea behind the 2 classes is that people may not have some of the DLC with the GT3 cars, so adding the Privateer class give a bit more choice for people without DLC. There is still some testing to be done on the Privateer cars to get them roughly equal to the Factory cars. The car and track lists are still quite W.I.P.

    I'm loving the idea of being able to go racing in some cars that are specialized for just that (more or less). As for the rolling start/safety car, there doesn't need to be a dedicated safety car driver as long as everyone can hear the voice chat. It can be done like in the old NASCAR Sim Racing servers I used to play in, where the leader paces the field and just goes after the pace car would have pulled off (so the last couple corners or whatever).

    And as for the car list, I don't really know much about GT3 cars, so as long as they all get around the track at roughly the same pace, it should be fine.

    Most of the cars have the same power, one or two may have more, but it's balanced out by the weight of the cars. A rolling start could be done without a saftey car, just need to trust everyone else to not race from the green light.

    I've come up with a few mandatory stickers for the cars...



    A Fac (orange) and Prv (blue) to denote the class and a number plate for numbers. I'm happy with the two stickers so if anyone wants to come up with a better plate, go ahead .

    sounds great, it will be a nice change from slow to really fast. And for this race can we have abs turned on, its gonna take some time to get use to a fast race car and no abs, just a opinion. I'm not that good like you all i would like to have a chance, maybe.

    Looking forward to this, the only problem I have is that I never have enough credits to buy a GT3 car. As soon as I get some credits I always waste it on cars that I don't really need and then I sell them . But hopefully I will be able to save up some credits and buy me a GT3 car or else I can be the safety car.

    Another plus for the Privateer class is that if you can't afford an actual GT3, you can run one of the others as they are substantialy cheaper.

    As much as I run out of talent when driving fast cars this should be great. I'll probably buy the Porsche pack with the new DLC tonight anyway, but I like the idea of going in as a privateer using the Ascari or whatever.

    I like the door stickers too, nice design.

    Here'a a preview of the "Prv" sticker with the number plate.



    I'll post a list of upgrades for the Privateer cars soon.

    The only things the privateer stickers are missing are bubbles in them because we're all too incompetent to put them on properly.

    If only I was that good at sticker making.

    If anyone still wants to have a go at making a number plate, go ahead. I've based my one on the official FIA GT3 one, but it's only for the left of the car as I can't mirror it right.

    Yeah I'm loving the sound of this. Should hopefully be some excellent racing, a bit like the old days on GTR2.

    A mildly upgraded F430 Challenge laps very similarly to the Audi on most tracks (at least with me driving it) but does suit my style more than the others, so I think this shall be my steed for when the time comes:

    Just a quick question. When you say A/S class cars upgraded to GT3 spec, what exactly is GT3 spec? I would assume roll cage and max weight reduction, but are there other upgrades?

    I class GT3 Spec as the Audi R8 LMS, McLaren MP412-C and such. So A/S cars that are upgraded to be similar to them, so 430hp ish and race stuff.

    If I had a 458C, i'd see what upgrades could be done and get it similar to the other cars.

    EDIT: It's highly likely that the 458C will be included with the Factory Class. Just sold a car to buy one from the AH. I've clocked it at around the same times as all the others at some tracks.

    More interest! Yay!

    I've come up with a few more Factory/Privateer cars. The Lamborghini Superleggera 570-4 and Porsche Cayman, I made it RWD and added some stuff to make it compatible with the others. The other is the Lotus Evora T124, i'm undecided as to have this in the Factory or Privateer class as it's a mix of both.

    The pros get that too, they just care enough to bring needles to deflate them.

    Are the stickers up on the storefront? I looked last night, but didn't see anything under your name. Don't rush btw, I'm just a bit excited to finish up my Mclaren
