    Where's the fresh trout. We need to swing it at someone.
    I would like noting better than this. It only took me 5 minutes on each combo to figure out they would top out (alone in the case of the Alpine and with any draft at all with the Lotus). Basically what has happened is we have two guys who couldn't take five minutes out of their day to make an informed decision about something that would affect 90+ other people or we have two guys that just don't know what to look for when picking a combo. Way to go guys.

    Well we've figured a way in the past and will be forced to again!
    However Guys to truly give a challenge, it is best if the car never peaks out!
    People quickly learn their brake points or spit sand, replace fenders, wheel's, suspension, etc.

    @GTP_Rotary,
    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 did the same thing when I choose a combo once. I practiced and new it would be close but I did not factor in how much faster the d1 guys were. I will never make that mistake again.

    FYI
    Since the Alpine A110 1600S '73 has such a limited wheel selection and I am old school, I'm going with the American Racing wheel with the car color matching spokes, like we did in the 70's and 80's.
    Car color remains the same and this change is ONLY for this car.

    Initial mock up of the rig I'm building based off of Simul8r's design. Can't wait to get this completed for some SNAIL action.

    Wow! Looks great!, where does the lap top go?

    I include an un-glued T (right or left) to hold the laptop that has limited downward travel so it don't go beyond your comfort zone, yet gets out of the way quickly and without damage to the laptop when the race is over and you gotta get to the pisser!

    Have not quite figured that out yet. The plans leave an option open for a keyboard so I might try to utilize that somehow for the laptop.

    We don't usually discuss time trial times on the thread, or anywhere really
