When will this poll end? It looks like YES is gonna be the result, so I'll ask ... Are we gonna be carrying weight in the 1st race of the series? If we do, we need to do our practise with weight. And of course we need to know the amount as soon as possible.

I go with NO, just not to leave Aitor alone. :P

Seriously: I think that the weight penalty is an "invention" of the modern racing world, just done to have more TV "appeal".
I prefer the "old school" law: no frills, just gas!!! (I am still working on the part "just gas" as my laptimes say) :)

Keep calm and wait the chequered flag...

I must say I absolutely agree with this view, despite having voted yes. But my aim when I brought up this matter was to find a way to make cars race closer to one another and thus make more fun and enjoyable races. The ideal situation would be no weight penalties and having the faster drivers on the slower cars, but I suppose that it looks good on paper but would be difficult to achieve in practical therms, so the weight seems to be the easiest way to level lap times and close huge gaps between cars on the track.
Goes without saying that in more frequent close racing situations "Gentleman Driving" and respect at all times for the racing rules and etiquette are of paramount importance.

This poll will be closed at Friday 24:00 CEST. I need some tests online to see how 100 kg additional weight will affect the car indeed.

I have tested max weight penalty 100 kg online today. The result is: from 0.5 s to 1 s slower than normal.

Now each driver can test it online. I set admin password "test". You can simply join the server, type "/admin test", type "/setmass [kg] [driver name]" (no parenthesis) and go. To be back to normal weight set 0 kg.

With my name and 100 kg extra it looks like:

/admin test
/setmass 100 Marek Archipow

Please do your tests too. It will help to set max weight penalty.
