    Oh boy. I don't, and won't transfer it. But you apparently would, and would try to influence others to do so as well.

    This part. I do what I can to minimize how I might be affected by another person's mistakes, I'll be damned if I'll take any responsibility for what others decide, whether it affects me or not. Rest assured though, I will decide on how to act when those mistakes do affect me.

    I uhh... don't know, I just try my best to drive away from them... they usually mess themselves up if you avoided their dirty move.

    I usually chastise them during the race over the mic. But that's probably not procedure. But it's not like we can file reports or anything so that's just what I do.

    Ok jst wondering, alot of us know the difference when it's someone less experience, new to snail, made a mistake or when someone is jst plain dirty over and over again. Sure stewards see stuff in practice Rms and will send pm's to those ppl.

    They will usually get theirs so don't worry, let them do their thing and they will end up wastung seconds off the track. As long as you stay clean and productive you have nothing to worry about, as you are the bigger man in the situation just by ignoring them and their stupidity. If it is a completely visible intention on their part ex. ramming you at 80mph when you are about to enter a turn and your punted like a football, then I'd would say atleast save the replay just in case. Becaise whether practicing or racing S.N.A.I.L.S know better to act like that regardless.

    Pretty stoked with the new update... I hear there will be another update before the end of the week. From what I read, it looks like the update will correct the shadows on infield grass, add deeper texture to the laces on racing shoes and the ability to choose the color and style of caps on tire stems...

    We ran A lot of practice laps/Races at Tsukuba tonight and several race's were single file, I actually asked all to attempt this and it's something I've been practicing lately.

    I have learned that I can start at the back and use extreme race craft and not try for a win, just race the guy in front of me and see where he is slow then I shoot for it and if it ain't right then just settle back in and maintain our draft and as the forward drivers error we are there to gain without effort.

    I in the past I would gain on my opponent within the draft to intimidate the driver ahead I would pull out to show an intent to pass on the inside and before the turn jump back behind, only to see that the drivers ahead have extended their lead!

    Intimidation factor is good but you both just lost! (Time) and it may even result in one or both drivers over driving the corner and or coming into unnecessary contact!

    As I spoke of between races let's just race single file and all participants gave it a admiral try and IT WORKED! And on a couple of occasions we wound up finishing all very close together!

    GREAT PRACTICE SNAILS!

    Running single file works wonders! @ParkerMO125 & I gaped the D2 field by over 8 seconds just by doing this! Mind you, I wouldn't have been able to pass him unless he made a mistake... C'est la vie no?

    I think I made the same intimidation move on you once and it worked for me lol... You need to lure them into defending and quickly jump all the way to the outside for a late apex, good exit. It also depends on the corner type in which it is very effective at Tsukuba because of the ability to run multiple lines through those hairpins

    I agree I used the hairpins to my advantage Sunday in the first race of Tsubuka, since qualified pole position the competition couldn't keep up with me and the second race I started in 11th and used the hairpins mostly to overtake and finished in second. Not to shabby I kinda like this combo, lots of options.

    You do it your way and I'll do it mine. All I know is what I'm saying has worked for me for the last 19 years or so in real life and on the Sim.

    BTW, I don't know where you get this whole transfer idea from. Did you make it up because I sure as hell didn't say it.
