Great pics TokenTimmy, had lots fun last night, I will try to to play a roll in support next time. Quick question, where can I find info on the voting, I have never voted at all
We vote at the very end of race 6 , if you leave the lobby early put your vote in the lobby chat and we will record it. Thanks for racing last night it was great fun.

PS, You can only vote for combos you race. So if you arrive late or leave early you may not vote for the combo(s) you miss. But, entering one race at a combo qualifies you to vote it 'off the island'.
 
Sorry for the ignorance, what do we vote on?

Active Participation
Our unique format allows everyone to have a say on which cars and tracks we race. It's also used to strike a balance between familiarity and variety of our car and track combos. In other words, the progression of cars and tracks that we race is slow enough for us to learn them well, but fast enough that they don't get "old". At the end of every league night, everyone votes on which car and track combo they enjoyed the least. The combo that receives the most "elimination votes" is dropped from the next week's lineup entirely. The combo that receives the second most votes is also dropped, but only partially. This is where our prizes come into play:

Prizes
A prize is awarded to the divisions winners with the three highest scores*. The division winner with the highest score gets Prize A. The division winner with the second highest score gets Prize B. The division winner with the third highest score gets Prize C: (NOTE: We now have a new process for breaking ties in the elimination vote)
Prize A: The right to select the new car and track combo to replace the combo that was voted off
Prize B: The right to replace either the car or the track of the combo that received the second most votes
Prize C: The right to "freeze" either the car or the track of the combo that received the second most votes
 
@TokenTimmy Nice photos, especially that sepia one !

If you didn't know what a LSD does after racing that car, you do now.

Its the fifth week for the Alpine. If it stays for another week, it will beat the last car that stayed for 5 week straight, the S2000. What a great little car even on sports medium, fun to drive and just fast enough to make for some great on track action.

Not the easiest car to drive this one, we all had our off track moment. I thought the room was starting to lag when I saw you guys going off track. For my part, I lost it and spun out a lap later in eau rouge.

Overall fun night, thank you guys for comin. @NoobMaster69 glad to see that you liked it enough with us to come back for a second week ! ;) You are crazy fast considering you're on a controller, mad respect. @Kgffy You got a worthy dualshock opponent now !

I thoroughly enjoyed racing with y’all these past two weeks. It’s definitely been a very good experience and plan to stay. Can’t wait for many more races with everyone
 
Call Out to all SNAILs

We need your help updating/checking car stats for every car in the GT7 Cars sheet in SNAIL Combo History. If any of you spot a car that has incorrect specifications, primarily PP, compared to current specs in all three dealerships, please post the change, no matter how small, in this thread here.

I've already done several. It would be helpful if I wasn't the only one looking.

Thank you.

Hey Dragon,
I can give you some time to assist in this. I just want to make sure I understand the request correctly.

When I look at the GT7 Cars tabs, I see exactly 500 rows of data, I propose I can take a chunk out of the bottom, let's say from the Manufacturer starting with "T - Tesla, row 445 to the bottom of the file.

Maybe I haven't thought this out properly but with respect to PP, am I noting the PP's once they've been fitted with the appropriate SNAIL Tires, as indicated in column K of the data? Or the indicated PP in Brand Central?
Thanks,
- Niagara

Marcus is correct. We need the dealership PP, and other specs, if different from the current list.

The round that received the most elimination votes was:
Round 3 - Audi R8 LMS Evo '19 (RM) at Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps 24h Layout - S17 Evening (7 laps)
Therefore the entire combo has been dropped from next week's line-up. Since @Kgffy wins Prize A, he gets to choose an entirely new car and track combo to replace it.

The round that received the second most elimination votes was:
Round 2 - Alpine A110 '17 (SM) at Circuit de Sainte-Croix B Reverse - S01 Afternoon (6 laps)
This means either the car or the track will be replaced for next week's line-up. Since @TokenTimmy 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 @Dragonwhisky 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.

Something I've noticed... The ai cars placement is not always the same. It seems like there's two patterns for car placement. I had a few laps then left the missions to do something else.... when I came back it was impossible to clear the first hairpin with any speed because cars 1-2-3-4 where close to each others. You leave and re-enter missions, now there's a nice gap between car number 3 and 4.
