    this is going to be great, i especially like the two car team thing with points standings as well. To all the teams, please have the same colors (too cool lol) of course its not required as grim said, but i think he should change that :p

    Hey Skiwi - I have a PM out to @Adventuruss to see if he is still interested as he would be the 16th confirmed driver. That said, worst case you would be first alternate so still plan on showing up on Wed

    Thanks everyone for the great interest in the series and Im happy to announce we have a full grid of drivers for Wed Nights Race.

    To anyone else who is interested, we are accepting "Reserve / Alternates" for the series

    Per the rules

    • Top 16 drivers in points are guaranteed starting spots on the grid for the following weeks races (must be in lobby by 8:55pm EDT).
    • Remaining open grid positions will be filled by alternates (based on current point standings).
    So based on this info, if if your a Reserve/Alternate for the first week, there is always a chance someone will not be able to make it on any given week

    @ParkerMO125 - I would love to see team cars in the same color if possible.

    @turnupdaheat - Are you OK with running Imola Orange?

    Rule Update - Since the Torque Split can be adjusted while still being stock and really cant be enforced, we will allow it to be adjusted when the series uses 4WD cars

    That's fine by me. :tup:

    Btw @Nail-27 I don't mind changing number if you wish. It's just a number that goes well with the driver in my avatar!

    I haven't had a chance to get in a lobby with anyone else. I'm curious to know what range the lap times have been in? I forgot to change my oil before doing some laps this morning and was in the low 1:29's.

    Also @GGGMotorsport, there are 3 spots where I have a question on where we can and can't go. The two left hand turns where there is the yellow paint. I assumed the yellow is off track. Also, heading into the small chicane prior to the finish, keep two wheels inside the white line prior to the first left? Thanks for clarifying.

    the yellows are considered track, grim gave the okay. Reason being the dark driving line goes through them. Last night had a vary of laps from 25's to 28's from the people in there

    Thanks. I guess running the yellow parts would result in a much faster lap (and having an oil change). Thanks for the heads up.

    For this track (
    As Parker stated, the yellow portions in the two turns are ok as is the outer portion on the straight before the chicane leading up to the start/finish line. Pretty much all pavement on this track is legal (except the inside curb in the tunnel). As for the other corners , you must keep 2 wheels in contact with the racing surface and the painted curbs are part of the racing surface (for this track).

    Sorry for missing practice yesterday. I have a prize pick upcoming and was spending time looking at those things in advance of it so that when the time comes I'll make a selection and then we can get on with Spec practice this week.
    If another practice takes place today I'll be there. Very important because we need to see how my connection communicates with the others in this group, especially now that it's filled up.

    @GGGMotorsport - Myself and @JWalker have teamed up. Both of us being New Yorkers, even if we live 7 hours apart, have come up with our name as Empire State Motorsports. We'll run a yellow car (Giallo Evros) and blue wheels (Daytona Blue Pearl Metallic). Thanks.

    Has anyone done a full 40 min practice stint? I managed to put in a couple of 7-10 minute runs last night and front tyre wear seemed very heavy. I'm wondering what they're going to be like after the minimum 20 minutes we'll be racing on each set. :scared:

    Plan accordingly. The latest update, 1.09, took me just over 30 minutes to download and install.

    RACE DAY!!!!!!!

    As KTR5 stated
    Please make sure you give yourself enough time to get the update installed before tonights race.

    I also received some good news in that my replacement wheel has been shipped! Sadly it wont be here until tomorrow :(

    As for tonight's race, I know of two other drivers that will not be able to make the starting grid tonight but should still have a great field for tonight's race.

    I will open the room up at 8:30 Eastern (perhaps sooner).

    As a reminder, you can still put a team together up until the drop of the green flag to earn team points towards the team championships and is another chance to earn a spot in the end of season All Star Race. Those not part of snail will be able to form a team starting next season.

    Thanks and I look forward to seeing you on the track.

    PS - there is a good chance for a promo video to be created from this race so please have your car numbers added. Thanks
