    That makes sense, I wasn't aware of the core Formula, but some consistency is good. I'd still like to see a little more tire variability. Maybe prize C winner has the option to adjust compound 1 level for prize Bs pick? A one step compound change shouldn't invalidate any testing.

    And yes, this is entirely born out of the fact that I like low grip racing and would love to see a CS combo pop up once in a while, or a race car on SS :)

    I think the rocket is a blast on its stock tires...but I also feel the middle and lower divisions see closer racing with better tires. I don't know I'm torn. Some cars just aren't any fun to race wheel to wheel on stock tires while others are right at home. I think the goal is to fight each other for position, not the car.

    I got that this morning too, should have mentioned that as well. Last one I needed was the Autobarmy(driving the length of all the Autobahns combined, trophy says 7903 miles, though it got it closer to 8000). First platinum trophy I've ever got too! I only managed to get 80% in GT5. Though I'll probably go back some day and try and get the rest. GT6 trophy wise is a cakewalk compared to GT5.

    With a start time about 3 hours before coverage begins, it sounds like he's wanting to set up a Sunday afternoon event as opposed to a Sunday night event. The more the merrier!

    To @Azure Flare (and any anyone else interested in running a special event anytime on Sunday), it's up to you to organize and recruit for the event. Lay out all the specifics so that others can decide if they want to participate.

    And to anyone who wants to participate in one of the suggested events, be sure to reply to the post saying that you want to race it in. It let's the organizer know that he's got drivers to fill the grid. Simply clicking the "Like" button doesn't let the organizer know that you're "in".

    It took me forever to get the drift events down, as I'm far from the worlds greatest drifter, and is the only time I've reverted back to the DS3 as I found it much easier.

    As for the GT40, just keep practicing with it and you'll eventually get it. It came pretty easy for me, but then again I love the 'Ring. Just keep practicing, and remember that you only have to beat the time, you don't have to pass the GT to win.

    Some my general ideas:

    A) Cat and Mouse - Mice are Samba Bus, Cats are X-Bows.

    B) "Super Bowl FullContact Rallycross" - highest TEAM score wins, and full contact mayhem permitted. Team captains, a mini 'draft' with rights to 'trade players' or choose from a short menu of cars, starting with either VW 1600 '66 or a PAO PP area. If two teams, one is Orange, one is blue/green.

    C) 'Merican Bowl - '60's and '70's in a rough'n tumble ring or tight course. List of 3-5 cars, one make in race 1, then lowest scoring team or driver chooses from a short list of options , next driver chooses from what is left, etc.

    To all drivers in D5, D7 & D8. The stewards are in need of the following replays from 26 Jan.;

    • D5 Round 1 Race 1
    • D7 Round 3 Race 2
    • D8 Round 3 Race 2

    If you have a replay of these races, please get them uploaded to the Open Replays store. The stewards will take it from there.

    Thank you.

    I used to host a muscle car rally themed night. I have a few replays but they don't have the LOLs of trying to race wheel to wheel on the Eiger tracks with RWD tanks. It was quite amusing, especially with reverse grid every race!

    The Prize C winner's vote is used to break the tie. Since @vincentq4 vote for Round 2, that's the combo that "wins" the elimination vote.

    Correct about Prize C winner breaking the tie. As for the WC division winner's vote being crossed out, that was because he was incorrectly identified as the Prize B winner at first, which caused his vote to be crossed out. However, the WC division is not eligible for prizes so @Neovre's vote definitely counted. I've corrected the crossed out vote on the results post to avoid any further confusion as well as adding a hyper link to this post next to @vincentq4's vote to single it out as the tie-breaking vote. :tup:

    The perception that the Prize C winner didn't vote was actually another mind trick caused by @Neovre being initially identified as the Prize B winner. When this happened, the next highest score became the Prize C winner, which was @Pifachu. However, once we removed @Neovre from the prize podium, @Pifachu inherited Prize B and @vincentq4 then became the Prize C winner.

    Now if @vincentq4 had decided not to vote like @Pifachu did, then it would start to get complicated. :lol:

    While you are waiting feel free to look at the list of cars and combos that have been used.
    The Lotus is a great car and has only made 17 Appearances in SNAIL;) (in GT5 it was the Lotus Elise 96 RM)

    Yes, the price cap for the February season is $250,000. We plan on bumping it up to $500,000 for the March season, and then up to $1M in April.

    Ah sorry, you already caught that. But if we ever really do have a situation where the Prize C winner in fact doesn't vote, that would indeed be a headache. Fortunately, I have a simple solution in mind if that ever happens. We will give new life to the recently deceased BSC formula and incorporate it combination of human polls and computer formulas to break the tie. :sly:

    I can see it now: "According to the formula, the combo to be eliminated will be....the Oregon Ducks!!"

    We Oregonians are pretty wary of that there BCS formula. :lol:
