    I really enjoyed my first night of SNAIL Racing. I really need to get more practice in.

    Some shots from D4 last night! Many of them with Tex leading! Well done, man :) Hope it isn't too many pics! If you can't tell...I really enjoyed the mustangs :)

    Beal lead from pole around the first lap...then things went sideways!

    [​IMG]

    D_A uncatchable!

    [​IMG]

    Goat hanging it out with Beal close behind!

    The eventual winner... ;)

    [​IMG]

    Right from the start Tex's crew was expecting the worst! (He didn't need 'em)

    [​IMG]

    JJ was a little laggy...and sideways. Tex in the background, waiting.

    [​IMG]

    ...and taking the lead!

    [​IMG]

    It was Tex, Canucklhead and myself for most of the 1st Boss race...awesome fun!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Tex and Canuckle losing it a bit coming into lap 6!

    [​IMG]

    Vinny was *always* there...as I pass Canuckle :)

    [​IMG]

    Rounding to home finally past Tex on Lap 7!

    [​IMG]

    Never felt so good to let go of my wheel! LOL

    [​IMG]

    D_A leading (and ultimately winning) Boss race 2 -- nowhere near as exciting as the first. :(

    Great pictures of Div-4, @pyxen. Thanks for including the White & Blue in some of the frames. The Pit Crew sends their appreciation as well.
    Really wanted to save Race 5 with the Mustangs .... The race up front was pure enjoyment - best I've ever experienced. Too bad I couldn't pull off the Out-n-Under Pass on that last lap. You really executed the pass perfectly and deserved the win.
    A bow to your Superiority, Sir. :bowdown:

    Just out of curiosity, has someone put together a list of which car/track combos ran for how long? I imagine that is in a spreadsheet somewhere. I'd be curious as to what the greatest car/track combo hits were.

    The mustang will stay-that combo was the most popular. Officially.

    Here's a list of the combinations. Scroll to the right to see the most popular (longest lived). There's a bit of other info there too ;)

    Awesome pics! Be sure to collect $hells for them (click on the "earn $hells" link in my sig). In fact, you get more $hells just for including commentary like you did. :tup:

    There's gonna be some seriously cool stuff in the Marketplace soon so you'll want to have a little spending money.. :sly:

    Like a footnote to any 'other' epic spreadsheet created by math wizards could have looked have looked self-reverential except for yer UberNorthern deference, @kcheeb, but we know you are "The Wiz of da biz" for anything with a # sign!

    Just like a good crack dealer. Get's you hooked through the nose, then moves on to the next "customer". My son did the same thing to me with Gran Turismo. Although my skills in GT pale in comparison to yer skills with teh google docs.

    @dabneyd & @Wolfsatz - You guys having any luck with replays?

    @ELmarcotuff,
    Thanks for your interest!
    We would love to have you in the league. 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.

    3. @kcheeb PM's you with your assigned Division that we feel will give you the closest competition. kcheeb will add you to the drivers list.

    4. The Race Director or Primary Host from the corresponding SNAIL Division will send you a PSN friend request. Sunday night you will need to sort the online lobbies by friends and join the lobby named 'snailracing.org Division_1, 2, 3, 4, 5 or 6' based off your placement from kcheeb. That lobby will be where you race Sunday.

    5. You drive fast and clean on Sunday :tup:

    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.
    To avoid duplication, the currently claimed combinations can be found 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:

    Thanks Tex! It was a great evening, and I had a blast watching/waiting behind you and Canuckle :)

    I really got to work on my lane positioning and defense with Vinny too -- keeping him where I wanted was very satisfying. ;)

    Thanks Zero; earned!
