    When he filled out his Time Trial he said his PSN ID was N_Hoath88, not ndrk1088. So that's the way he's listed in the scoring sheets. The Drivers list shows him with a psn id of NDRK1088, so I'm a little confused.

    @NDRK1088 can you confirm the PSN ID you race with in S.N.A.I.L. is ndrk1088?

    Well it's crazy...I was surfing the Autotrader and they go from as high as $20k and as low as $10k but it's strange because the year of the vehicle doesn't seem to impact the price very much. I have seen older one's for $15k and then one 3 years newer for less money and similar miles. Very strange. $15k would be too much I think. Between $10k and $14k seems reasonable for one in nice condition. Mileage isn't a priority but condition is. I hate cars that have been poorly maintained and beat on.

    The later models have a lower redline and less oversteer from the factory, so some people prefer the older version. The S2K is pretty small, would you pass the broomstick test with helmet on?

    Maybe I'm odd but I use a controller and for some reason I'm finding it the opposite of what you say. While I agree with you about the Elise feeling more "arcadey", I hate that car's loose rear end and I'm struggling with it. Altering the bb is helping and I hope to find a rhythm that works with it before too long.

    On the other hand, despite the fact I had never driven that RX-7 before I found I was immediately at home and competitive with it. I love that combo (the full Grand Prix track would have been nicer though)!

    I'm on wheel, but I was really struggling with the Elise until I found an easy trick: Never take you foot completely off the gas no matter what. Completely eliminated my random darts into the walls.

    I heard people talking about that trick last night Mirado. My trick? Never turn with your foot on the brake!

    The only place you must brake and turn is Massenet (Turn 3) and lowering the rear brake bias helps with that turn.

    Yeah. I currently own two SUVs. We use one most of the time. I could sell the smaller older one in a year or two and get a fun car and still have the SUV for the rest.

    Seems like he has the start time early enough to avoid these issues. I also think the practice race will give us a good idea if we run into the problem.

    The S2000's are great little cars. You have to options AP1's and AP2's. They both have there strong points and weak points. I myself prefer the AP2's. They have alittle more mid range power along with a slightly closer transmission. But the downside is they have a little more weight to throw around along with the fact they are alot easier to drive. The AP1's are lighter an have a 2.0 that will turn 9k rpms all day long. They tend to be a little oversteery when pushed hard, but are a lot of fun to drive.

    I don't normally enjoy what I call the 'castor oil combos' or "cod liver oil combos" - where I'm told that I'm supposed to do something because it's somehow going to be good for me later on, and I'll look back on it and be glad I finally did it... must be my problems with authority. ;)

    The RX-7 isn't a turd, I just didn't expect a near 600 PP FR car to drive like it has a fatboy FF oversteer issue. Long story short, yup, I have some learning to do.

    I just noticed something on the schedule of events. Can the Drivetrain Challenge be listed on Tuesday instead of Thursday? Not sure how many people look at this page, but newcomers may look for us on Thursday when we are racing on Tuesday at 10pm.

    We raced for several weeks at 10:30pm to wait and see if anyone would migrate from the Kart series but no one ever did. So we are going back to 10pm since it is apparent neither of us are stealing drivers from the other.
