Greetings everyone. Last night, I (of all people :lol:) was invited to join this group so I decided to post here and say hello.

@RACECAR

Here's your official S.N.A.I.L. Welcome Post!

Thanks for your interest!
Here's what you need to know (and do) in order to join:

We run a clean league by enforcing a strict penalty system based on the S.N.A.I.L. OLR (which is a modified version of the GTP OLR). We also expect all of our drivers to know and follow The Good Racecraft Guide.
Please become versed in both if you aren't already. Once that is complete, please follow the steps below to complete your entry into the league:

1. You take the S.N.A.I.L. OLR and Racecraft Test

2. You run the Time Trial and submit your information by 23:59 EST on Saturday night if you want to race this Sunday.

3. @JLBowler PM's you with your assigned Division that we feel will give you the closest competition. You will be added to the drivers list.

4. Send a PSN friend request to the Race Director or Primary Host from your assigned SNAIL Division. Sunday night you will need to sort the online lobbies by friends and join the lobby named 'snailracing.org Division_(x) based off your Division placement from JLBowler. That lobby will be where you race Sunday.

5. You drive fast and clean on Sunday 👍

The original post has everything you need to know about what to expect on Sunday night and what you will need to have completed in order to be competitive. If you have any questions, please feel free to post your question on the thread.
If you have a preference for car/wheel colour and racing number, please follow the instruction contained here.

During the week we run a number of different events, we encourage all SNAILs to join as many as possible.
Welcome to S.N.A.I.L. :cheers:

Hey Schmiggz,

Thanks for your interest in our little league 👍

We run a clean league by enforcing the S.N.A.I.L. OLR and we expect all of our drivers to know and follow The Good Racecraft Guide. Please become versed in both.

You'll be added to the drivers list as a New S.N.A.I.L. When you run the Time Trial and Private Message my GTPlanet account with your time, you'll be moved to the appropriate Division List. We do this so to make sure everyone gets involved in some close, clean racing.

Shortly after that, a PSN friend request will be sent to you from the SNAIL_Division1, 2, 3 or 4 account for the Division you will be placed in. That lounge is where you will race on Sunday night.

The original post also has a lot of information regarding the league, commit it to memory ;)

The second post has the current race lineup and is updated weekly.

If you have a preference for car/wheel colour and racing number, post your choices here. To avoid duplication of choices, the currently claimed combinations can be found here.

During the week we run a number of different events feel free to jump in and partake!

Welcome aboard and enjoy :)
After some search I finally found this... On page 311 of this thread, a long long time ago.
The second greatest curiosity of page 311 is Nick McMillen's request to join Snail just a few posts before mine.

project cars looks amazing, if my g27 is compatible with ps4 i will definitely be buying one just so i can play project cars
There has been some talk behind the scenes of a SNAIL Project Cars series. I figure many Gran Turismo fans will be getting a PS4 eventually since that's where GT7 is headed, so why not get our feet wet with a PS4 event? Who knows, maybe Project Cars will end up being better than GT7 anyways. I hope that's not the case, but one thing's for sure is that Project Cars will be beating GT7 to market (by a significant amount of time).

Patience my friend.... it's the start of a new season, the bossman has a lot to do. You will know before Sunday's race which division you're in... not necessarily D6. It depends on the result of your time trial.. you will be placed accordingly. As this is your first race I suggest you join the Red room tonight to get your feet wet.

Just make sure you do the oil change on your cars and put the correct tires on and you're all set! See you on the track tonight 👍

And keep the rim sizes the same as original.

If you owned the car for awhile, even untuned, you may have to go to Suspension and Reset To Default. Some cars need a reset on Transmission as well.

Providing my current control setup is supported by the game and the PS4, lacking a GT7 release and same, that might actually be a reason to buy a PS4.

That's funny cause I have been waiting for that one game or thing that will give me an excuse to buy a PS4 as well.. That game might just be it.!! Are you big into F1? The game & real life?

I'm really sorry but I don't think I'll be able to race this Sunday. Trying to fix my internet and I lag really bad so people probably don't wanna race that. Sadly :(

Not in that order

  1. RE Amemiya Rx7 GT300 Base Model '06 (337 HP/512 PP) @ Fuji F
  2. Chevrolet Corvette Stingray (C7) '14 (476 HP/ 533 PP) @ Willow Springs
  3. Nissan GTR-GT500 Base Model '06 (518 HP/584 PP) @ Suzuka Circuit
Now it looks right.

Now we just need some photos so @Pizzle13 can get those sexy banners made.

So I went out shopping for this week's cars, you listed the gtr gt500 as an '06, but the only gtrgt500 I see is an '08; the '06 is a Z!

Am I high? Please clarify...

Try and get hard wired instead of wireless and better, wired to the modem instead of router . If you have to go wireless make sure nothing else is using the internet while racing...... Clear your cache.
