    Old thread.

    We're Slide Effects. Better known as SFX. We like to drift and stuff. When we're together, it's pretty much a nonstop party. We don't take anything seriously.. except for video games. Forza sucks and we're here to stay so get used to our ugly faces. We're generally pretty awesome and cool, so don't be shy and join our lobbies if you're looking to have a mediocre time with some mediocre drifters. See you all on the track.. or something!

    Recruiting U.S. drifters:
    We are looking for a few U.S. drifters to fill out our roster. We don't do the normal "tryout" thing. Hang with us for awhile and show us what you got. Prove to us that you want to be on our team. Join our lobbies whenever you can. Don't make us chase you down. Show us a little dedication. That's all it takes. Interested? Fill out the quick form below and send me [SFX_Pwner on PSN and Cro [SFX_Adavicro on PSN] a FR and a quick message letting us know you're interested and we'll go from there. :tup:

    3/10/12 - Due to the recent increase in activity on GT5 and Cro's indefinite hiatus, Fadam and I thought it would be best to start a new thread. Most of the current info was borrowed from the old thread and will be edited/changed up in time. Also, Fizzy and JoeGTR have joined us from the Forza side. Beautiful Run and SeanWelland have also been added to the roster. We will continue to recruit until all of the holes in our roster have been filled. Stick around, we have a lot more to come and we hope to drift with you all soon!

    4/14/12 - Nightpyre & CircuitHero have both been dropped due to inactivity. We're still looking for a few supercoolchillbrodudes, preferably from U.S. timezones, so hit us up in a lobby. That is all. Good day.

    General Info:
    Typical Maximum Players Allowed: 5-12
    Times that you may see the lobby online: We have a host from the UK as well as the USA so our lobby times will vary.
    Our team hosts regular drifting lobbies on nearly a daily basis
    and everyone is welcome. We drift, we cruise, we chill and just
    generally try to have fun. For anyone who wants to practice,
    learn, or just have some tandems with randoms feel free to
    come by and hopefully you'll have a good time. Below is
    general information about the lobby we host in hopes it will be
    of use.

    Lobby Notes:
    -RWD Only
    -FR Layout Preferred
    -Unlimited Horsepower
    -Comfort Medium/Comfort Hard Only
    -All Assists Off, ABS is allowed
    -Grip/Track Edge set to Real
    -Tire Wear/Fuel Consumption Off
    -Damage is Off
    -Mic is preferred, but not necessary

    Common Courtesy:
    - The No Overtaking Policy -- It's common sense really, don't
    overtake unless it's necessary. When drifting with other people,
    the goal should be to try to follow their line to the best of your
    abilities, not try to grip up and time attack through the inside. So
    please, try to hold a tandem line for as long as possible.
    Sometimes it is okay to overtake the car in front of you, like
    when they are spinning out, or taking a painfully wide and slow
    line. As above, use common sense.

    - Hey, wait up dude! -- Seriously, wait on people that are looking
    to tandem, especially newer drifters. It can be on the straights,
    or wherever there is a break in the action, but show some
    courtesy and wait up for people that fall behind. We all join
    online lobbies to drift near other people, right?

    - Bumps and Bruises -- There are going to be crashes, and
    scrapes, that's part of drifting. Just don't go all Rambo on
    everyone and start crashing for no reason. Simple.

    - Wow, Stay Still -- When you spin in front of other people,
    especially on a tight track, try to stay put. Let other drivers pass
    before you pull out in front of everyone, I don't know how
    many awesome trains have been ruined by people being
    careless.

    - Don't take it too serious -- Although there are these
    "rules" and "courtesy tips" that doesn't mean they're written in
    stone. For the most part, the lobby is laid back and we have
    fun, most of the time its a lot of random good times. When
    things do get serious business, though, it's nice to have some
    order. Just use your brain and all will be gravy.

    I'm not as "quick" as I was on controller with the wheel yet but it just gives me another reason to keep practicing.

    You'll get there :) Don't give up on drifting, almost did back when i started in LFS.

    Oh I haven't yet. Working 50-60 hours a week is killing my practice time. And now that I just moved, I need to rig something up before I can even use my wheel again. haha

    Time Attack sounds good. I have no idea how competitive I am tho.

    Shipping for Outsiders is £13. That's £2 less then the DVD itself lol.
    Edit: Shipping to the US is only £10 o.O
