- the cars are fantastic. Albeit I'd personally steer clear of some of them.
- race format
- track selection (but simultaneously a con)
- a mixed track selection would be preferrable. That means, at least one short and very twisty track where Porsches/M1s have trouble, but
the 320 can play out it's strengths to the maximum should be included.
- the series could use more drivers for larger fields. But that's a factor which cannot be as much influenced as anything else.
First of all, the series was a success in my book and as Ahmad said in different words, we should be careful too overcomplicate things.
Historically there was a "Big" and a "small" division in DRM. There also was a time when there was a championship within the championship as the Deutsche Rennsport Trophäe
was held within the DRM races for Group 2 and 4 cars. In this mod there are only group 5 cars, but it might be an option. Keeping in mind what I said above about making things too complicated...instead of changing the cars at all, how about a multipliying factor? As an example, a point at LeMans for the 320 is worth as much as 5 points for the Porsche. But this would get messy.
Editing the cars/league edition: When I said via TS I want to try the M1 engine in the 320 I just wanted to do that for some offline fun, I didn't think about putting something like that into use into the series. Personally I am not fond of a league edition, as it will take away too much "character" of the specific cars. I'm also sceptical about removing the 320 (or any other car) from the field. Slow or not, I rather have fun in this one than take a car which I don't like as much and having some fun was my main motivation here, as I seriously couldn't expect a victory at all. I was tempted several times to take a different car, but always the fun factor of the 320 prevailed, even at LeMans. And the M1 was more pain than fun for me, I just shunted it too often and wanted to avoid a DNF at LeMans. Besides, my best time was a 3:36 in practice, and I seriously don't know how to become 10 seconds fast in it to be competitive, given the times I've seen from the leaders.
That said, if the general consensus is that some cars should be removed I am with Pumbaa, as the M1 and 935 outpace anything else by a great margin on straights.
I agree that car switching is not so desirable. Hence my proposal for shorter and twistier tracks.
