    I think the whole d1 debate is interesting because people on the anti d1 bandwagon seem to think we don't respect the olr yet those who race in d1 and enjoy the crazy intense battles have no problem with the way people race and consider it to be clean. I've thought about this a lot and here's the best way I can sum it up. In d1 we race by the same rules you race with in real life. Few people care about a little bump here and there if it doesn't effect the outcome of the race. One other way to look at it is in d1 the drivers push the limits of everything and because of that mistakes are made that sometimes involve some contact. If you're driving at 100% and make a mistake usually the effect is greater than driving at 95% and making the same mistake. I think most d1 drivers understand that and just enjoy the level of racing that we have. Personally I file reports only when it effects the results of the race and the person doesn't concede the position. If a driver tries to pass me and makes contact but we exit the corner in the same position it's called a mistake. If someone dive bombs and makes contact and completes the pass it's dirty and I report it.

    Yes, our logo will be on Nick's helmet for the duration of the season. :)

    The one on the front page is the one we've had for a long time. The "new" logo has not been finalized or released yet, but it looks cool!! :D

    What's up guys?! Been missing racing with you all but as you know I've got some other racing to attend ;)

    Been in the UK for the last week doing some fitness training making sure we are good to go come Monza this weekend. Definitely excited and ready to do the real thing. None of this practice stuff lol. I'll be posting updates of the race weekend on my athlete page which you can click the link below for. I'll also be posting on twitter where you can follow @GumballCGT. Time to go kick some ass this weekend!

    Lastly, I wanted to say you guys are absolutely awesome and I greatly appreciate all of your support!!! I was going to wait to post up a picture with the finalized deal we have going on but it looks like @zer05ive beat me to it! It's good to have a great group like everyone here behind me and I hope to make you proud. Another SNAIL can win GT Academy this year so you better make sure you're getting your practice on and not only on the game if you think you can make it to Silverstone. Hit the gym, do a track day, an auto x, or whatever you can do to prepare. I better see some of you this year going at it! I'm trying to make sure I can be around for each process it takes to get to win. I want to be there for everything if I can and play a part in helping choose the next NISMO athlete. If you guys have any questions about anything feel free to PM and I'll try to help you out. Good luck boys and thank you again!

    - Nick

    Aggressive = ready or likely to attack or confront; characterized by or resulting from aggression.

    I think passes can be made with out being aggressive but I do see your point;)

    Fixed for ya. Aggressive != Dirty.


    I offer proof using what I call Snail Math ;)



    Aggressive passer + Aggressive defender = Incident

    Incident = Bad

    Dirty * Aggressive = Bad

    Incident = Dirty * Agressive

    Aggressive(passer + defender) = Dirty * Aggressive

    passer + defender = Dirty


    on the flipside:


    passer + defender = Clean

    Aggressive(passer + defender) = Clean * Aggressive

    Clean = -Dirty

    Aggressive passer + Aggressive defender = -Dirty * Aggressive

    Aggressive passer + Aggressive defender = -(Incident)

    Pass = -Incident

    Aggressive passer + Aggressive defender = Pass

    In other words 1 + 1 = 5 :cheers:

    I'm sorry but I race like I would in real life also. I would definitely be pissed off if someone gave my half million dollar ride a "bump" as you put it. I know that drivers racing in real life actually do not like to have their cars banged into all race long and crew chiefs especially don't like it.

    The only way you find out that a bump doesn't affect the outcome of the race is AFTER the bump. So I suppose you just drive your ass in there and pray that your bump isn't too much of a bump?

    I've been a witness of this driving "style" if you will. All the mid race apologies on the mic and excuses saying things like "must have been a lag spike" is just not good enough for SNAIL.

    If you took your GT Academy Nissan and bumped everyone on the track like some of you say is "how we drive in real life" then I doubt you'd be racing for very long.

    Noone said bumping around all the time, but it is going to happen. You arent going to let off after a corner you were slightly faster on then the guy in front, when you got numerous guys directly behind you. Youre going to bump him. Your team could care less about a dent. Watch some v8 supercars

    Yes! It will be. I'm not 100% sure the schedule for everything tv wise. Our race starts at 9am EST (6am PST) for all of you who would like to watch live. Click on the link below within the dates it has listed for Monza. Maybe they will have video for qualy and everything too. There was a sticker on the dash of the GTR during Paul Ricard for YouTube to "watch live now" so maybe it's live on YouTube at NISMO.TV. I will let you all know when I find out for sure!

    Thats only one of many types of bumps. The out of the corner acceleration bump is the most minor bump of all. Its the side bumps and braking bumps that cause the problems

    agreed, but those are the type caused by the follow cars error, so we'll call those collisions.

    Like the one around 2:00 in this video?


    Dear lord that was horrible! That guy should have his racing license revoked!

    I doubt a penalty was filed and the drivers probably laughed it off in the bar after the race.

    Caddy Guy: "Dang son, I nearly lost it on that tap into the corkscrew! Had no idea you were there, man those brakes are good on that Porsche"

    Porsche Guy: "Haha, yeah. Sweet save. Good thing you have 50hp on us, because I was all over your fat butt. Fun race though, I'll see you in my rear view next round :cheers:"

    That COULD have been ugly. I'm sure the Caddy guy was not happy at the time...probably cursing the ground he walked on...

    That's more of a nervous habit...I drive heel-toe in my car, and I guess it seems to have carried over when I shift during braking in GT6. I don't kick the throttle though... Kaz was nice enough to program the game to do it for me ;)

    I would like to get the silver package for now, but put me down as a maybe cause I got to make sure I have enough saved up when I graduate in 5 weeks.
