Here are the unofficial results from our league night on December 29, 2013

If you believe that another driver exhibited poor racecraft or is guilty of an S.N.A.I.L. OLR violation, please file a Racing Incident Report by 11pm Eastern / 8pm Pacific tonight. Be sure to follow the instructions precisely or your submission might not be addressed! If you're undecided on whether or not you should file an incident, please read this. Also keep in mind that an incident report isn't supposed to be an argument. Here are some good tips on how to make sure things stay civil and respectful. 👍

The round that received the most elimination votes was:
Round 1 - Nissan Fairlady Z (Z34) '08 (Sports Medium tires) at Silverstone International Circuit (8 laps)
Therefore the entire combo has been dropped from next week's line-up. Since @ptslopoke wins Prize A, they get to choose an entirely new car and track combo to replace it.

The round that received the second most elimination votes was:
Round 2 - Mazda RX-7 Spirit R Type A (FD) '02 (Sports Medium tires) at Suzuka Circuit (5 laps)
This means either the car or the track will be replaced for next week's line-up. Since @hooker4 gets Prize B, he gets to decide which part of the combo is replaced and what replaces it.

Prize C goes to @Jared93 so they get any gift car ticket listed here (by posting their selection on this thread).

Preliminary prize winners, please don't announce your car and/or track selection until all racing complaints are filed and you are given the "all clear" to announce your selection. It's also important that you review our Car/Track History so that you can see a complete history of how many times we've raced each car and track (just scroll to the right of that tab). Please remember that originality is always appreciated. Therefore, picking cars and tracks that we've never raced is a plus (but not required).

Car Selection Guidelines
Dealership Cars - The maximum price for a selected car is now $100,000
DLC Cars - Only DLC cars that are FREE and currently still available in the PlayStation Store can be selected.

Track Selection Guidelines
Any non-DLC track can be selected as long as a single lap with the car combo'd with it would not take more than five minutes to complete. For example, don't select anything that includes the Nurburgring's Nordschleife.

Seconded. I've developed much lust for that V8 atom ever since I saw it on Top Gear. If given the opportunity, I'd gladly part with a kidney for one.
I don't think anyone would pay you that much for a kidney buddy. You're probably gonna have to throw in a lung, an eye, and a chunk of liver. Even then you're probably only getting the base version, not the V8. ;)

EDIT: While I was there, I took a few minutes to check out "the competition" (Forza 5) and found a cool little car in there called the Ariel Atom. It's like the LLC Rocket in GT5, but instead of the "old school" Formula 1 look, it's looks like a "mini-me" of today's F1 cars. Pretty cool. 👍

Yup, they've had that car on Top Gear several times. That thing is BAD fast.

You could drive one of the racing spec Atoms with the 2L 4-cyl for $525. I'm going to have to save that much to do this on my birthday.

My brother drove them with Allen Berg Racing about 5 years ago. He still talks about it :lol: Not sure which version though.

If there was a difference, it was subtle. I do remember averaging a middle 13 at Silverstone while practicing, but then not able to break 14 while practicing online. Have you considered the fact that the weather changes? I know I've noticed before that by the end of the race the lighting has changed. I believe they also model temperature- I'm sure a big change in temperature would affect your lap times pretty dramatically.

Ya that was the only thing i could think of was the weather change. I know they added it in as a new feature this game. It was just odd i was around 1.3 sec slower per lap, threw me off big time. Just wanted to see if it was the same for everyone.

@kcheeb OK thanks its kind of hard for me to do that when my tablet doesn't want to cooperate. And i`ll have the time trial in by the end of the night tonight so that you have time to decide which division you want me in.

I don't have a PS4, but I stopped by GameStop today and asked how if they detailed sales figures for that location comparing the PS4 and the Xbox One. He said he didn't have the exact figures, but what he could confirm was that they've been sold out of PS4's for weeks and they have plenty of Xbox Ones that nobody is asking about. That makes me happy. :)

I got the opportunity to see the supercharged I4 version of this. When I was racing SoloII in the PanAm SCCA down in El Paso, I guy raced one. Those are wicked fast, I can only imagine how much faster this is. Love this car. I have a long simmering plan of building a Super7 that kinda got morphed once I saw this thing. MS must have an exclusivity contract with Ariel, I can't think for the life of me why this car isn't in GT5-6. I would Imagine Ariel would have been eager to do something like this.

You, my friend, need to watch more Top Gear. (The real version, from the UK.)

There are actually two Atoms. The one in the picture is the larger, V8 version. It is currently 3rd on the Power Lap Board (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Top_Gear_Power_Lap_Times#Power_Laps). In all fairness, the Rocket hasn't been on Top Gear. The Caterham's have.

Now that you mention it, I do recall seeing this face-flapping video years ago:



I guess I just didn't recognize it with all the fancy new body work. Uber cool.. :drool:

MS must have an exclusivity contract with Atom, I can't think for the life of me why this car isn't in GT5-6. I would Imagine Atom would have been eager to do something like this.

Maybe that car will be in a DLC sometime in the future, or not.

As to last night's racing:
GT-6 was locked up a couple of times after a race was completed - had to exit the room and return. Between races 5-6 it was completely paralyzed and had to exit GT-6 completely. Did not get to record Race 5, or return in a timely fashion so just said my Goodbye's and left for the night.
Hope it is a fixable matter and will not be an on-going problem.

Where do I find the finish time for the winner when viewing a replay?
If you find out, let me know. Last week when I didn't record finishing times I had to try to pause the replay a split second after the winner crossed the finish line then subtract the "parade lap" time from the total time in the upper right corner. Sometimes it worked, sometimes it didn't (sometimes the lap timer gets messed up during replays). You could also add up all lap times for the race, but that'd be kind of a pain.

VIR is not in Richmond, it's about 2.5 hours away from Richmond.

Dooh! My apologies, it's almost in North Carolina, only an hour from Raleigh.

Intoflatlines - Now I know why cmbeal317 always recorded that along with the finishing positions, something for me to work on, I suppose.

I figured out a way to compute it from a replay. After the leader finishes, he is actually given another lap timer/counter for his 'victory lap' - so you can pause it right after the finish, and deduct that from the total race time. Not as easy as copying from the screen at the time, but it's available at least.

It's cool, I just wanted to make sure you didn't give him a false sense of hope. He would get to Richmond and think his journey was done and realize he had another 2.5 hours to go lol. I passed VIR on my way to the Martinsville NASCAR race a few years ago.

Yep, I had to do that for the races last week (I made sure to record total time this week!)

One odd thing though is that for the races that finished P1, I was not able to do the pause/deduct method. The lap timer would not reset after the finish, or it would come up with some completely incorrect time.

Ugh, my replays for races 2 and 4 (Combo 1 & 2 reverse grids) are both locking up. :ouch: I'll try them again.

On the upside, @kcheeb, data entered for races 1, 3, 5, 6.

-------------------------

My replays Races 2 & 4 for D5 are Lockups. :banghead:

Yeah it's strange. All you really need to do in that case is go rewind from the finish (left arrow) one click. Then use the right arrow (one click) and it puts you at the finish line with the correct total time 👍

Thanks @Handlebar. For what it's worth, those are the exact same replays I had issues with :grumpy:

Last sunday night for me until april, but it was worth it. Had some great racing with the usual suspects and some new faces in D1. First time racing online in GT6, the new draft setting is a welcome addition and the blindspot indicators too. I'm just sad that they took away the scale 1 track map but that doesn't get in the way of clean racing as depicted in the pictures below.

Going three wide on last lap, 3-way battle for second place between Adventuruss, Redsoxboy and myself.

Race hard, race clean, race SNAIL.

See you guys on track in April. 👍

Just something I noticed on the season point totals. I have participated in 3 nights of SNAIL, but the sheet isn't showing my results from 12-15. I believe I finished 4th in D3. The name from that week was my GTP name (Troggy) instead of my PSN name (Troggeh).

I believe I scored 76 points to bring my total to 210. Good for 2nd place.

Looks like there was a lot of shifting across divisions in December. It was pretty transitional for several divisions. Congrats to all who had fun! I sure did!

Very good idea, racefan78.

Got it sorted Troggy. Thanks for letting me know 👍

I plan on buying a 100 ft Ethernet cable to run from the router in my basement up to my room. Does this sound like a good idea to you guys?

I have a 100 ft. cable that runs from one end of my house to the other to supply a wired connection to my man cave. The distance is not an issue for me what so ever. Just make sure to don't pinch the cable anywhere and you'll be fine.
