PostSubject: Borrow or Buy Cars?   Wed Dec 01 2010, 14:54

I'm going to start this thread for anyone needs to borrow cars.

I've been wondering if I should buy the Lambo for one of the Special Events or to borrow from someone for a couple of days?

I bought the Lambo Gallardo LP 560-4 '08 for that event because at the expert level you have a one-off race with them. Same with the Ferrari Challenge. I got a 485 Italia to run the expert level MR event.

You are welcome to borrow either if you would like. The 458 is freakin' increadable. Probably one of the best handling cars I have.

Smile service with a smile

First someone is going to have to clue me in on how that works. Do I just click the share with friends icon? Any piticular time you want it delivered? I'll contact the RIP transportation department.

I think that's how to ship your car, click on anything that pops up on your screen and you think that's it Laughing

Ask the man in charge of UPS (Spades) Smile ship it today when you have the chance, I'll race it tonight.

Crazy's Lambo is as fast as the vette. i have it , and hopefully will be done by friday w/ it. its a beast. i have nismo 33R (?) . its 447 hp, it will dust jap chall. ill send it out. Buying cars for a race or two is silly when we are this deep, (my opinion, LOL, ) its great to have friends. Crazy-8 has been the best. if you dont know where the car you have came from , THANK CRAZY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Who has a fast with decent suspension car I can borrow for the world champion A-Spec level 14? My 500 HP Ferrari wasn't enough to beat those race prep cars.

Lol, dude I have a Vette killer in my garage that will blow away everything else I have seen. I'm not saying something is faster, but I ain't seen it. 987hp, 705 ft-lb torque and 850kg. I ran a 37.5 at Daytona with it. It's a Toyota Minolta 88C-V race car '89.

I have a bunch of big bullets in the gerage if someone needs to borrow something. One of the hardest levels to clear in A-spec was the profesonial level historic race. I used my '66 Shelby Cobra with 712hp to do it, but she's quite the handfull to drive!

DMH, on second thought, maybe I should borrow the 981 hp vette of yours. Laughing My Ferrari came in 2nd on Ferrari Challenge behind the Enzo, I tried for 1st place but had given up, Enzo was just too fast, caught up and blown my doors off lol. One race I was approx 50 feet away from the finish line for 1st spot and saw the Enzo was approaching quickly in my rear mirror so I blocked him lol but he spun me around then I hit the walls (not the 1st time some one has done it to me lol) and finished 7th. I was too greedy, 2nd would had been fine lol. It took another 30 minutes or more to get me 2nd. So if you have a Ferrari that can beat Enzo I'd like to go back and show the Enzo's driver he shouldn't be messing with RIP lol.

No, no, Clubs. Vette KILLER RIP , not a Vette. Lol. Much to Spades dismay, the ZR1 is not the top dog in this hunt. Not even the GTLM can compete, Clubbers!

This is a Toyota 88C-V Race Car. The only thing that could hang with the maxed out ZR1 in the expert series. I won it after an event that had 2 narrow victories against this car with my Vette. I thought "How cool would it be to have that car!" and low and behold I get one as a gift for getting golds in the series.

I've got it fairly dialled in. I might need to tweak the ballance a bit and dial in the Limited Slip Differential (LSD, lol) a bit, but it moves very well. Use the traction control to avoid wheel spin all the way through 3rd gear. Leave the skid recovery off as it makes her a bit tight off.

RIP transportation will have the car delivered 1500 miles to Callifornia by the time you get home. I don't think the little brown men (UPS) can pull that move off! Good thing we ordered the haullers from Mazerati, huh? Use it to clear as many levels as you need to.

Of course if that aint enough hp for ya, I have a 1160hp Bugatti that does 246mph w/o any draft help! She just don't like to turn.

You're right, it's not a Vette, it's a Toyota. Somehow Spades's ZR1 stuck in my head Laughing I'll check my receiving dock tonight when I get home.

I'll be knocking on your door again when Bugatti is needed Laughing I think all my DSS races ended up with Golds so far Smile

I have 2 options for that race. The '66 Shelby Cobra is what I used to clear that event. It's a handfull, but has a ton of hp.
The other option is the clasic GT40 race car. I have run it a few laps and she's very tight, but I haven't done any tuning on the setup yet. I could work on it a bit to get her to hook up.

The GT40 should be thee better handling car in the end because of it's more stable wheelbase, and the Cobra just out mussles them on the straights.

How about trying the Shelby first since I know you could win with it if you drive it hard enough. If you struggle getting there with that, there is the GT40. The first race in the series is the hardest one. Those damn Chaperals are very fast.

I do have a Cobra 427 S/C in my garage but it wouldn't allow me to race, kept telling me has to be 1979 or earlier???
I'll try yours later.

Thanks for the Cobra, I'm going to take her out for a spin tomorrow. I've been having so much fun with the "Little Toyota"
Duck has the same one and he was flying @HSR earlier today. I came in 2nd after him and the rest (Nascar) were no where to be seen in the rear view mirror, it wasn't a fair race Laughing
