    Yep, just gotta contribute somewhere, somehow. Go down the rabbit hole.

    Say, Owens, what did you make that with?

    I'm sure it's made from "Scratch". Pretty much everything man-made is made from "Scratch".



    Look it up...it's there...somewhere...

    Understatement, JLBowler, very much so.

    Good news and good news yet to come...

    G27 is here, it fits (for now) on my original PVC A-frame stand. Love it!

    Also picked up a decent office chair, skipped the casters, as a temporary seat so I can sit right in front of the television.

    The pedals.... Smooth, nice pressure and travel... But the angle is not (yet) good.

    Will knock that out later this week. I beat my best time on GP/F last Sunday on my second lap with the newly cobbled together rig of Joy-Joy. Me likee much!

    You guys might also consider launching a new S.N.A.I.L. Drifting Team thread. I could attract some drifters who don't race in with us. :idea:

    I think you will like the G27 a lot. The pedals give you a lot more control that should help with your consistency.

    Two things you may already know but I case you do not:

    1. Knock the Force feedback down to 3-5 to start.

    2. Switch the steering to the ~670 degree setting. I do not have the link to the instructions but someone else might be able to post them. If no one else does I will find the link later.

    These two things have really helped me.

    Can someone pm me how to do that 670 degree thing on your wheel (G27 user) sounds like whoever has done that has improved or liked it better. Worth a shot for me.

    Edit: I also need a broken in racing kart 100 :lol: well I don't need but it would be nice to get one. Thanks (for the kart races tonight)

    Yes, there is absolutely a way to earn $hells without contributing your time to the league. In fact, this is one of the main features of the Marketplace that I hope will help make it a success. Not everyone can devote time to the league, but everyone probably wishes they could show their appreciation to those who do. The S.N.A.I.L. Marketplace is the perfect way to do that while also earning $hells at the same time!

    All you have to do is sell something in the Marketplace that you think your fellow SNAILs might want to have. For example, you could sell a PS3 game that you no longer play! Or how about some motorsports-related gear that you don't want any more? Sim racing stuff would be really popular too of course. The possibilities are literally endless! You could literally sell anything you wanted to, as long as you think someone here might be interested in it. Once the buyer pays you their $hells for it, you can then turn around and spend those $hells on something else that you want (just like you would do with real money).

    I'll going to put something up for sale on the Marketplace later tonight so that everyone can get a better idea of how this will all work. You can also read the 'Sellers' section here for more details on how to sell something in the Marketplace. :)

    Awesome!! Thanks Zer05ive! So maybe I can sell my playseat evolution that's still in decent good condition :lol: but, thanks for explaining it too me! Defintaly something to consider doing. How much does each $hell mean. For example a ps3 game like value in $hells.

    Edit: nevermind info is in the marketplace

    For the Karts remember we allow transmission tuning.

    Here's a post I put together with tuning parameters that'll get you close for each of the tracks tonight.

    And contrary to what the first post says, stupid timer, we're racing at:

    9:00 P.M. Eastern Time

    Race 1 - Tsukuba with Motorcycle Chicane - 13 laps
    Race 2 - Autodromo Nazionale Monza - 10 laps
    Race 3 - Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca - 12 laps
    Race 4 - Twin Ring Motegi East - 12 laps

    See you all tonight!

    672HP / 644PP

    Since it is over 600PP, I am assuming that we are using race medium tires.

    Just want to let everyone know that I've not forgotten about my Prize B choice. I can for one say that the Alfa will be staying. I'm gonna hop on right now so I can decide which new track we'll be racing on.

    Alfa Romeo Giulia TZ2 @ Cape Ring Inside
