    I was talking with nuTTTz last night on the PS4. In the course of the conversation, we were discussing how it may be excluding some folks from racing if they do not have a PS4 compatible wheel. While it is clear that time does move on to newer things, there is still no reason to leave things behind, totally. I am working on ideas to have some fun, small car races at some of our old venues that produced some of the best and closest races such as High Speed Ring, Deep Forest, Fuji. These would be run on PS3/ GT6. Once I get some more work done, we will figure out what evening and time slot would work best. I am not talking about any kind of long series, Championship, or anything like that, simply some fun door to door clean racing.

    You'll have to count me out on that one. I no longer own a PS3.

    Bummer. I know that BANG_N_OLUFSEN still is on PS3/ GT6, I still have (3) PS3s as well as the PS4 too. This is just an attempt to have fun fun old-school racing like in our heyday. :)

    I could get in on some of that action.

    Was chatting on skype tonight with my cousin in Japan, and the course of the conversation led to the TPRA and the 1st Daytona 500.

    Even after all this time, it is still fun to tell that story.

    Prologue, GT5, GT6, I don't really miss those items specifically, but I sure do miss the community.

    Hey SWERV, nuTTTz, good to see you guys are still around... :sHa_clap:
    I can fire up the PS3 if you get something going. Not raced online for nearly 2 years, been too busy at work.
    Looks like It might be slowing down so I'll have the time.

    Sounds like a good idea. I'd be interested in something like this. I haven't gotten a PS4 yet and QMs get tiresome. It would be great to share the track with my friends again.

    Count me in for any races on GT6!! Time trials are good and I've improved, but nothing compares to wheel to wheel racing with friends!!

    Hey guys, I may be able to fire up the PS3 for some racing. Been on PS4 & PC, but not lately. It will depend on the night. Miss the community too and some good door to door racing.

    Was just discussing this exact thing with Mopar the other night. Would love to see the gang get back together! :sHa_biggrin:

    I'm willing, my PS3 is sitting right under my PS4 so not a problem switching. I'll watch this space for further developments.

    Is there a night when most people are available?

    With Friday eliminated, Saturday is my other great option. I'll try to make any night work but, that annoying problem of time keeps rearing it's ugly head. My present employer works 10 hr days and with Calvin across the pond and Swerv on the west coast, finding a suitable time is aggravating. Like I said, I'll make time. I'm looking forward to this, I hope we can on track soon.:sHa_thumb2:

    i will be paying attention as well to this thread. the rig was just rebuilt. the PS3 brought back downstairs and i will have install the updates but I've not got TeamSpeak anymore if that is gonna be the VoiP. Sorry I've been gone from here for a while but I'm gonna try to do my best to keep an eye on this.

    The best VoiP these days is Discord, in my opinion. Free, modern and more versatile than TeamSpeak. MastrGT and the guys over at the PSN Forums have been using it for a while.

    I've tried it out a few times and it works great!! The TPRA already has a server! :sHa_biggrin: :sHa_thumb2:

    I could make any night except Wednesdays work.

    Saturdays could work. But it's also a socialising day/night, so may not be consistent.

    Thy options are thus open! Huzzah! :sHa_biggrin:

    I could probably make any weekday night pretty well. Saturday could be a problem for me too for the same reason that Calvin mentioned. Sunday would probably work the best for me right now since I have no classes on Monday. It will be nice to race with good friends. And decent drivers!!!!! LOL

    Any night except Sunday would work for me.

    We seem to be getting closer on a night. What format are you thinking of.... specific PP range, a specific class of car or a single make? I am happy to start testing and tuning!
