    @EvoSpecX,
    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 by midnight EST on Saturday night if you want to race this Sunday.

    3. @JLBowler PM's you with your assigned Division that we feel will give you the closest competition. You will be added 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_(x) based off your Division placement from JLBowler. 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:

    I had a very enjoyable evening with @wvhellbilly and @mopar440 generally tooling about in the Lotus Elise Race Car '96 on a variety of tracks, running 2-3 lap reverse grid races with occasional yellows to tighten things up, from courses like Circuit Madrid Reverse, Grand Valley Speedway, Matterhorn Dr (ski lift route), Toscana - a nice course for that car! - Eiger Short, Cape Ring, and others. 125 miles, and lots of smiles.

    Thanks guys, that was fun!

    Clutch & Cruise
    3:00PM Eastern until whenever

    If you've ever wondered if the clutch pedal works much in GT6, wonder no more.

    A one off event. Bring whatever car you want, Tuned, un-tuned, raggedy or tight. Tracks will be voted on. Clutch will be used by any and all who have one, but is not mandatory. Racing format, if races are held at all, will be loose and informal. Wear your Jimmy Buffet shirt and flip flops.

    Let me know and you can host. Otherwise, I'll be standing the room up, at or about 3:00PM. Will post room number below, in this post.


    Room closed:

    1472-6118-3615-5262-7621

    To any non-SNAILs reading this. There will be very little tolerance for a$$hattery, as in zip, nada, zero, zilch. If you come to this room with ill intent and I suspect it, the door will be hitting you in the rear as fast as I can make it happen.

    My shifter is grossly out of place - same height as my right hand, about 8-12" to the right of the wheel, but I will give it a spin, hopefully on metaphorically, but... Keep yer head onna swivel if I am near ya!

    Since I'm in the T500 RS Master Race, I also have a clutch, and a TH8 RS. But I get almost every other shift wrong, so I don't use it all that often.

    That would be pretty much the idea behind the "Cruise" part. No pressure, take your time shifting. Learn the sequence, learn how each car has a different shifting personality. Room will be up soon.

    Room open. See above post.

    Hi everyone... I've been terribly sick lately and stuck in bed for the most of the time this weekend so I'm very far out from what's being happening around here.
    Last night I exchange a couple of messages with fastfox that told me we're not racing tonight. Is it the superbowl thing or something else?

    Thanks to the Prize A and Prize B winner for making their selections, and thanks to Handlebar for coordinating and summarizing everything. :bowdown:
