    Yes I can edit it. Will do later tonight when I'm at home. Doing it on the Google Drive App on my phone is a nightmare.


    Also, saw this post from 3:02 am this morning (a full 24 hours of TT'ing) of the Top 30 North Americans. 8 SNAILs in the top 25 (9 if you include Doodle).

    So from the looks of the official website, it appears as if only the top 4 in Canada and the top 28 in the US are going to the National Finals. I figured it would just be the best 32 in North America, but I thought wrong.

    I'm glad to see that the GT-R combo will return. It ended up being much more enjoyable than I thought it would be.

    Let's hope the 2000GT stays and we go somewhere in Japan like Motegi Full or Suzuka Full ;)

    GT-R combo blows chunks for someone who didn't buy it until I got home at 9:25pm est. Evidently this combo requires practice...which I have no time for...like the Academy tests...dang.

    Not enough saliva I guess I missed it :lol:. That looks more surprised than drooling to me.

    Obviously, that is up to @Azure Flare to clarify, but I think he did state later that it was the total of all 4 nights.

    Unfortunately, the 2000GT is totally gone, and the Tsukuba or Miata Touring Car are gone as well. The GT-R stays, as is. I have to admit I was shocked, but at least the voting was relatively close across all three options. Some preferred one over another. This week it went against my taste, but the last several have dropped or modified the combos I was hoping for, c'est la vie.

    I'm sorry for being off topic with this thread but is there any way another could be made for the random small talk in SNAIL? Is there any way for SNAIL to get a sub forum here on GTP? As it is a large amount of people that are involved (100+ and rapidly growing) and logging on after 12hrs and having to read through 4+ pages at times just to see what is actually happening in the Spec series is tiresome at times.

    I also think this is why some people are lost in what is actually happening at times or am I the only one that gets bothered searching back just to find where I last read so I'm not confused when something is said?

    I'm afraid you have those two mixed up. The Miata received the most votes according to the unofficial results.

    It's possible the official results after the rest voted ended differently. Either way Miata on Suzuka would be even more fun, allow it to stretch it's legs a bit.

    That or that they dont use the search function (which is a million times better) and are looking for fish slaps!

    Last week someone ask a question that was 3 posts earlier on same page.:crazy:

    We have a multitude of snails with very useful sigs.

    Btw:
    Are the combos posted yet?

    Prize Selection Update

    @Dragonwhisky will be along shortly with the fancy banner to announce that all the prize winners are clear to make their choices but let's go ahead and get things started so that those of you with free time may start your ever so precious practice time.

    @dcallnight is the prize "A" winner. He has already won prize "A" once this month so anyone that raced in D8 Sunday night is allowed to make one, and only one, suggestion for a car/track combo to be selected. You have until 23:59 ET tonight to do this. At that point dcallnight will choose from the suggested combos and that will be the prize "A" selection and will replace the Miata at Tsukuba. If you didn't race in D8, please refrain from throwing in your two cents as it will only add confusion to the process.

    @Mirado_7 is second in line for prizes and must make a decision between prize "B" and "C". Please do so at this time. If you choose prize "B" you must wait for the prize "C" winner to make their choice of freeze. If you choose prize "C", please choose the prize and what part of the combo (Toyota 2000 GT or Apricot Hill) you want to keep.

    @martin20az is third in line for prizes and must wait for Mirado_7 t make his choice before doing anything.

    Mirado_7 and D8 drivers, you are on the clock.

    :lol:

    The post wasn't just about that as it's not something I've done.

    Just figure SNAIL is kind of in it's own playing field in this forum (not to downplay the other clubs) and things can be overlooked quiet easily. 116 posts since this time yesterday.

    Most of that is skimmable though and a big chunk of it should have been posted in the GT Academy area of GTPlanet. No reason someone couldn't start a SNAIL thread in the GTAcademy section for all the discussion of times and techniques and the like. I would even call it, SNAILs in GTAcademy.

    Thank you Mirado_7. @martin20az is now on the clock to choose weather to freeze the Toyota 2000 GT or Apricot Hill.

    Yes, all those who raced in D8 Sunday night should post in the thread their suggestion.

    dang, I am back to having to purchase 3 cars this week again....never ending. The good news in messing with GT Academy, it racked up some good credits, so hopefully I can have at least 2 cars this week to race. I should not have a family and 2 jobs.....cuts into this gig :)

    This has been a somewhat ongoing single sided discussion that will never get attention.

    I suggested awhile back that SNAIL get their own free forum that links to the first page of this thread and vice versa. That forum could be very cheaply hosted for less than $10 a month. In that forum SNAIL could have a sub forum for each SNAIL series, a pit stop forum for small talk, a photo forum for photos, etc and so on. But this idea has not gained any traction with the bosses so we wallow in this bloated thread and sift through hundreds of posts each day for a single post of interest.

    I will even pay the first six months of hosting through Hostgator etc...

    Ridiculous.
