    Well I was feeling kinda bummed out about not racing last night... pulled myself out due to lack of practice, but now after hearing about what happened I feel as though I dodged a very large PD server bomb... Weird though, because in the non-competitive room I was in there was no DC's or lag?

    Is there any additional data that might be in the replay that I just uploaded or the results pic?

    Traffic jam at an apex?

    That and the +1-2 tire mode for not online.

    Quality & Consistency Control, man, just go with the lack of flow...

    In 3 weeks from now, I'm going to try this baby for a couple of laps. My company's mechanics and the chef engineer have been developing two of this cars for some amateur championship around Ontario and they will perform track tests in three weeks and I didn't shut my mouth until I got the invite to come along and have a feel of a glass fiber body, aluminium tubular chassis with a Suzuki Hyabusa engine on it.
    I can't :censored: wait.

    I'm less than 2 hours away from you. What do I have to do to get in that car too?



    Only extra would be best laps.

    No, you got the point right. What you said is exactly why that number is more important than d/l and u/l speeds. You want that number to be as little as possible. Issues with rooms loosing stability, I believe this may actually be something to do with the software server side. Thats why I am curious what sort of latency we would see if we pinged one of PD's servers. I wonder how far off they are from the GT5 servers. I could pull them from the Bspec grinder app.
    You know, in an odd way, we almost perform a denial of server attack every Sunday now. With 90+ people logging in all at once pushing and pulling all sorts of data on top of what already seems to be a shaky infrastructure. I couldn't see that small of a load really being disruptive, but, you never know.

    Combo 3, R2 Best Laps RacingChamp 2:31.637 ; rob1nh000d 2:31.979 ; singlepaddy 2.32.770 ; Piler 2:33.294 ; Speer9892007 2:35.093 ; Sharkb8ii 2:37.723 (before he was out) ; CoachMK21 2:32.446 (before he was out) ; blueninjacivic 2:37.412 (before he was out).

    Thought I had Combo 3, R1, but dang, forgot to save it. I'm sure someone else in the room said they had that one.

    Also, @singlepaddy , I just watched the replay and I want to apologize for bumping you on the long back sweeper. I'm glad I messed up later and you got past me.

    Would love to join a novice league. I used to race NASCAR on my computer for 4-years...kind of miss it, so would like to race for a little fun :)

    @bigjobrob,
    You are in luck, we cater to Pro and Novice drivers.
    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 23:59 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:

    Wow, GT5 servers are packed. I'm guessing a lot of people had issues Sunday.

    Apparently, when you search for "begging on your knees", you get a lot of these kind of pictures:

    Flew KC-135, OV-10 Bronco and F-4E. I was a FAC in SEA and the avatar is an Air Force print that could be found in O'clubs and Squadron Hooches all over SEA. It is actually a painting titled "The Fighter Pilot". The background is a map of South East Asia.
    No super racing experience just some Formula Ford in the US before that war got in the way-and some production sports car driving in the UK in a Europa twin cam. Now seriously older than I liked to be...but somewhat amazed that I have lived this long. Love to race.

    No. Do not post your TT times here. Skills welcome post had a link to a form you fill out and the necessary people will find your time and place you in an appropriate division. If you didn't include your time in the TT form, PM @JLBowler your time and he'll take it from there.

    Thanks I appreciate that. You obviously don't mess up often, so I'll take it!!! Lol.
    Actually got bumped worse in combo 1 race 2, dropped from 2nd to 7th. But hey I'm no angel sometimes either so I try not to complain too much.

    Division 3 Round 1 Race 1
    Honda Integra Type R (DC5) Touring Car '04
    at Ascari full track


    On Track: @turnupdaheat , @Wolfsatz , @LeoStrop , @Xradkins ,@racefan78 , @JLBowler, @intoflatlines & @Dragonwhisky

    Turnupdahead gets pole and steals it from me. I had pole for about 10 seconds.
    [​IMG]

    Nice and tidy at the chicane.
    [​IMG]

    Ready to receive an early gift from Turnupdaheat, he goes wide and into the grass and make the pass without incident.
    [​IMG]

    1st lap and Racefan is also able to pass heat. This one is not so much the snail train.
    [​IMG]

    Battle for 4th is tight.
    [​IMG]

    Going through the 2nd Chicane, Racefan quickly closes the gap.
    [​IMG]

    3 wide at The Hill. Xman is able to make a clean pass for 4th.
    [​IMG]

    Racefan charges hard and gets very close.
    [​IMG]

    Meanwhile, X gets an excellent run on Heat and makes a clean pass as Flatlines studies his chances.
    [​IMG]

    At the 2nd Chicane and everyone in bounds!
    [​IMG]

    Last Lap! Burning front tires but keeping in bounds; Racefan still looking for a tiny mistake to complete the pass.
    [​IMG]
    But I am able to cruise to my 1st victory in D3 on GT6. :gtpflag: Excellent racecraft to @racefan78 he pushed hard but never over agressive to cause an incident.
    [​IMG]

    Flatlines is able to make a pass on Heat on the last lap.
    [​IMG]

    Division 3 Round 1 Reverse Grid
    @LeoStrop starts in the front and is followed by DW.
    [​IMG]

    Snail Rainbow at lap 2. Battle for 3rd.
    [​IMG]

    Side by Side at the top of the Hill X defends the inside from Racefan's charge.
    [​IMG]

    Flatlines defends the inside as X gets robbed from the draft. Good defending move from @intoflatlines to prevent the pass in 3rd lap.
    [​IMG]

    X setting up for the pass 2 corners before @ The Hill...
    [​IMG]

    ...gets excellent momentum and completes the pass on the inside touch free even when Flatlines is running a very good defensive line. I tug right behind X to draft him, but ran out of track to complete the pass before the chicane.
    [​IMG]

    Last lap and I fight to steal 4th from Flatlines...
    [​IMG]

    ... there is a small rub and I lift off to prevent a major incident... flatlines is able to maintain position.
    [​IMG]

    ...and racefan is closing the gap quickly.
    [​IMG]

    While @Dragonwhisky is cruising in 2nd place seconds ahead of any threat.
    [​IMG]

    Setting up for the pass at the Hill, and using the same technique as X...
    [​IMG]

    I come side to side next to flatlines...
    [​IMG]

    ... but I have the advantage of having the inside line.
    [​IMG]

    and able to complete the pass to the finish line withing 100ths of a second.
    [​IMG]

    @LeoStrop seals victory
    [​IMG]


    Everyone in D3 displayed great racecraft on this combo! :cheers::tup::):D

    round 2 TBS.
