Are you sure?

BTW you seem to figure fairly largely in my license test leaderboards. 'Specially on the Rally tests.
Haven't touched them since the game came out. I did each only once(other than the two or three I crashed on the first attempt) and didn't repeat them. I got to a certain point and was made aware you didn't need to finish all of them and stopped. They made several physics changes since, but I'm a firm believer in not chasing times. I learned ten years ago that online leaderboards are the devil. :lol:

Good to see you made it to GT7!

As an entertaining aside, I hung out and played some GTAV tonight with Exosphere and Owensracing. One of these days we'll all race again.

:cheers:

Saw that as I was logging off for the night. Would be good to hang out with you gents again.
I think you spelled “I have read the first post and would like to join” wrong.
😁
We'll get to that when I get tired of the single player mode. Feels a lot like GT5 did when I first started playing it. Only with better graphics and some physics improvements.

Now, if I could just get my buttkicker to work reliably.

Well they aren’t around here to talk to so how do I know if they aren’t hardened criminals stealing candy from babies and dealing in black market sim racing gear?ca
Can't say Exo ain't in that boat there. I'm bettin' he's not though. Owens however, I'm fairly certain don't have an oar in that water. And, since I'm once again using the Wheel Stand mods he built me, I stand by that latter remark.

Division 2
  1. L-L-B_1993 -------- voted to eliminate Round 2 - 100 (109.30 for Prize A) SEE NOTE BELOW
  2. Track_King47 ------ voted to eliminate Round 2 - 85 (92.91 for Prize C)
  3. Flyingdisc315 ----- voted to eliminate Round 2
  4. Smhintzane -------- voted to eliminate Round 2
  5. Minigun_Jones ----- voted to eliminate Round 2
  6. Skills_19657 ------ voted to eliminate Round 2
  7. Malizaghi --------- did not submit a vote
  8. cesarr64 ---------- voted to eliminate Round 2
The round that received the most elimination votes was:
Round 2 - RUF CTR3 '07 (RM) at Autodrome Lago Maggiore - East - S05 Afternoon (12 laps)
Therefore the entire combo has been dropped from next week's line-up. Since @Louis3986 wins Prize A, he gets to choose an entirely new car and track combo to replace it.
PLEASE NOTE: Since @Louis3986 has already won Prize A this season, he is ineligible to win it again until next season. This means that unless he loses Prize A due to incident reviews, any driver who competed in Division 2 on Sunday night will have the opportunity to suggest an entirely new car and track combo. I recommend that all D2 drivers from Sunday night start TESTING combos they would like to suggest. That way, you will be ready to post a good combo when @JLBowler gives the "all clear". It's important to mention that a good combo will not have a car that hits its rev limiter at any point during a race (even in a draft). Also, please be sure to only suggest one combo. Any driver who suggests more than one combo will automatically be ineligible to suggest any combos at all. Please don't let that happen to you. Only suggest ONE combo (but not until @Louis3986 is confirmed as the Prize A winner).

The round that received the second most elimination votes was:
Round 1 - Daihatsu Copen RJ VGT (SM) at Alsace - Test Course Reverse - C05 Evening (18 laps)
This means either the car or the track will be replaced for next week's line-up. Since @Timlour gets Prize B, he has the option to freeze the car or the track, or he can give that option to the Prize C winner. If he gives the freeze away, then he gets to decide what car or track replaces the part of the combo that is left unfrozen by the Prize C winner.

Prize C goes to @Track_King47 so he gets whichever option the Prize B winner does not select.

Preliminary prize winners, please don't announce your prize selection until all incident reports have been filed and it has been confirmed that you don't have any penalties. It's also recommended that you review the SNAIL combo history and other data on our car and track history so that you can get an idea how many times we've raced each car and track. Please remember that originality is always appreciated, so picking cars and/or tracks that we've never raced is a plus (but not required). What's more important is that you thoroughly test any combo that you are considering before making it your official selection. For example, any car you select must not hit its rev limiter at any point during a race (even in a draft).

IMPORTANT: When posting your Prize A or Prize B selection, please list the complete in-game name of the car and/or track you are selecting. For example, if you want to choose the Integra Type R as your car selection, post "Honda Integra Type R (DC2) '98". If you want to select Monza for your track, post "Autodromo Nazionale Monza". Being specific helps us to update the lineup accurately and also helps avoid any confusion among the drivers. Also, please be sure to list the HP and Weight (LBS) of any car you select. For track selections, include the time of day (e.g: 09:00 Clear) or else it will be left to default.

Car Selection Guidelines
See Section 3 of the SNAIL OLR, Policies and Guidelines.

There is not scheduled Sunday night racing until Jan. 8th. All prize winners will be notified when it is closer to the time to make selections.

The BoD has some work to do on the UCD car policy. Over the course of the next two weeks, I strongly recommend that all members of SNAIL buy cars from the UCD that they do not already own. We will be using these cars in some capacity for Sunday night racing and the speed at which they cycle in and out of the UCD may make them unavailable for purchase at the time they are chosen. There aren't that many of them and they aren't that expensive and the game has been out for months which means they have all cycled through the UCD many times over.
 
I can honestly say this was collectively the least fun set of combos I have been a part of in a long time. If I could have voted all 3 I would.
Could have been worse, we could have raced on Ste-Croix 😂 but I totally agree. This is probably just me, but we are constantly racing GR.3 and GR.4 cars in sport mode so when Sunday night comes they are the last cars that I want to drive. Combo 1 with a full grid would have made for some close tight racing on track but thats about the only positive I can find from my point of view.
 
Round 2 didn’t turn out the racing that I thought it might. Tried a combo that hasn’t been used before but now we know that particular one doesn’t work
It happens sometimes, most of my combos are one and done, I know what you feel 😂 Kudos to you for picking a combo that has never been used.
 
Sometimes the combos aren’t the greatest but I do like them better than the same old daily races over and over. I don’t even do the dailies anymore, unless it’s a new combo and even then it’s only a few races I do. I just test the waters for SNAIL and if there’s someone doing YouTube streams for random combo lobbies
