I'm tossing up two options for the next Assetto Corsa season. One is picking two JDM cars of similar performance, the other is doing Formula Renault with the Tatuus FA01. With the JDM series we would use short/medium tracks like last season. With Formula Renault we'd do tracks like Spa Francorchamps, Imola, and the long versions of Nurburgring and Silverstone. Give me your feedback. (edited)

Formula Renault explained for the curious

Can't have both at once. If that's the direction we want I'd roll with formula renault this season and then JDM next. Have a bit of a change.

I've noticed races are usually closer together with slower cars so I still have a preference for the JDM cars but am defs in for the Formula Renault as well...
Small 5a9e0aa09f2eaba5606b1e1b04c5254e
That's my feeling as well but I'm seeing too much similarity to the last season with the cars available. I've done open wheel races with the slower guys before and still had a fun night. I'll put a test server up on the weekend and see who we can get on.
Small 313a09806de6a7e56223119aa159cf41
Now that I think of it, your point of it being similar to last season is pretty good. Screw it why not do the Renaults, change is good. If it's crap we can always fall back on the JDM cars.

Yeah that's it, it's really just a matter of variety and appealing to a few different audiences.

Renault sounds good to me. And as everybody is saying, if it turns out crap, we change to JDM.

If we go with the Tatuus, can we make a custom skinpack? I want liveries =P
Small 5a9e0aa09f2eaba5606b1e1b04c5254e
You keep asking, I keep saying no :P

But they're so cooooool
Small 5a9e0aa09f2eaba5606b1e1b04c5254e
Yeah. Assetto Corsa really needs to up the support for driver profiles. At least being able to have your choice of colour, number and putting your name on it would be awesome.

Can even make them have no names so just numbers, different colours/colour combos and funny branded stickers - then just grab bag on what car you get on the night
Small 5a9e0aa09f2eaba5606b1e1b04c5254e
I've explained the reason many times. Having mods is a no.
Small 2b71c6b1220fc84f9f66ddda609b2141
Just my 2 cents but i believe that running the open wheel cars will furthermore divide the field by a larger amount due to the fact that they are less forgiving for less experienced drivers and will increase the amount of spins further down the field. Where as if it was up to me i would run a production car class more so than just a jdm 2 car field and leave options for the guys who know that they are less experienced for example i would have Lotus elise, R34 Skyline, Supra, 370Z, Mustang, Bmw Z4 and the lotus shouldnt be used by experienced drivers

I understand what you're trying to achieve but it doesn't align with my objective of running something that is both simple to comprehend, join and, above both of those, operate.

Assetto Corsa is limited in configuability and limits my ability to give sufficient numbers of such a wide choice of vehicles that someone on the night will end up in something they don't want or like. Most of the guys I talk to appreciate the hop in on the night focus that the events had last season. It also makes convincing those on the fence much, much easier. That leaves me with the only option of running one car or a couple of almost identical cars. Be those open wheel or production for me it makes little difference. (edited)
Small 5a9e0aa09f2eaba5606b1e1b04c5254e
so, back to the question asked, two JDM cars or formula Renault, which floats your boat the most?
Small 5a9e0aa09f2eaba5606b1e1b04c5254e
Not trying to be a pain, just making sure it's something I can actually run effectively. Last thing I want is to commit to something I can't make happen.
Small 177cb1ced1128e3d0d9b882a6cd06444
Me personally don't mind driving any car but definitely leaning towards JDM with some technical tracks :O

I'd rather the two JDMs for the sake of the non-wheel drivers. Or trying to push my luck here; three cars (6 cars of each type on an 18 pit grid which is the smallest set).
