    The Alfa is an OK combo. It burns through tires quickly so my lap times fluctuate by about 5 seconds give or take. I've hit one 2:45 but mostly I'm around 2:47. I don't know how good the racing is going to be. It won't be difficult to pass slower drivers but the braking zones require quite a bit of precision and drivers of equal ability will have trouble staying on each other's bumpers. I expect lots of accidents, probably close to the number seen with the Redbull, because of how the car reacts to touching certain rumble strips. Some can be used to rotate the car...others will rotate the car when you don't expect it....and if you're expecting it to rotate and you miss, your car will turn into a pinball as you bounce off the barriers.

    Thanks for making your Prize A and Prize B selections. Again, sorry for the mess this week. I should have realized that @fizzer had already won the same prize this season (just last week in fact :ouch:)

    Anyways, the March 23rd lineup has been posted! :gtpflag:

    Huge thanks to @JLBowler for helping to sort out my mess. And @Troggy, are you able to do banners like you did a while back? :D

    Should it be racing hard tries for the DC5 touring car?

    Alfa 8C... :drool:

    I may want to paint the world blue, but any color on this car other than Rosso Alfa just seems wrong.

    If you can time a downshift flame burst (afterburner) in the air with the Alfa that would be gorgeous

    Those are some great pics. For some reason, the second from the top is just amazing to me. I had to keep getting closer to the monitor to prove to myself that it was a GT6 pic and not real.

    I like the alfa drifting one too.

    I like the ones with the sinuous, winding roads - that's what I think of for both tracks, at least.

    Let's see how my updated info looks

    One more time to see my caption.

    How do you get the footer that some people have on the bottom of their replies? Such as fizzer's reply shows this league and his division number.

    I am going to try a post to see if more of my captions show up. I am only double posting just to try this. OK, I found it. Thanks.

    @rob1nh000d do you talk to yourself often outside of forum posting?

    Only when it's really late or I'm under extreme driving frustration:mad:. btw, how do you get the @person's ID, in the body of the message. Is there a shortcut key? See, here is another example of me discovering something when I ask the question. When I typed the @ sign it turned the next word into a link apparently. @KTR5 -- oh, a button appeared. I see. lol.

    A question regarding used PS3's. I'm trying to price out the triple screen setup. Looking around craigslist in my area, it seems that I could find used PS3's in the $150-180 range each (sometimes getting a controller or 2 w/ games and cables). Is that a reasonable price? I haven't looked into the used prices at stores, like gamestop or another local place, but I figured they'd be more expensive anyways.

    Thoughts?

    That seems pretty steep for a used console, not to mention you are taking a risk buying off CL in the first place. Near me, I see several offerings for 100-120 bucks, with a controller included. I'd say keep looking.

    HI. I would like to compete this sunday on the west coast time slot. I tried to do this last year but I got injured. Do I need to do a new time trial? also are you still doing oil changes on your races being that the cars lose power after awhile? thanks

    Okay so I have many friends who are involved in snail and I am wanting to possible take place in a upcoming race to get a feel for the event. So if someone could give some info on how to get started it would be greatly appreciated. I'm huge into endurance races in the game.

    Am changing from a Fat PS-3 to a Slim PS-3. Am having some "concerns" about getting all the GT-6 Game Progress transferred. Signed up for a PSN Plus account - so that Fat could be copied to the Cloud and then downloaded to the Slim ........ just not sure of the individual "clicks" along the way. Want it to be a successful experience not a DUH moment.
    Can anyone offer some step-by-step suggestions?

    I think if you come to our official practice session tonight you would get a good idea of how SNAIL works. They start at 9:30 eastern. Room numbers will be posted near that time. You can find the 3 cars and 3 tracks we are using in post #2 on page 1. I'd link it, but I'm on my phone.
