    Now, add 10 cars and see how well that jump works.

    10 cars.. a few bumper taps and slight hit on the rear quarter panel as you are about to take offthe jump and try saving that with RHs.

    He ended up on a 2:15.175 which placed him in 14th in the UK and one spot ahead of BanditKarter. There are a few ahead of him who are ineligible so he must be there or thereabouts.

    I'll confirm when I know.

    If people really don't like CR Periphery then I can change it, if I am able? @JLBowler

    It seems like a fun track

    Monza... Penalties.... If you're in d4-d8 I feel for you... This track is unforgiving with penalties.

    Honestly, it doesn't matter what "people" like or don't like, IMO. It's your choice. Some prize winners take suggestions, while others go with what they want. It really depends on what your level of tolerance for complaints is :)

    the difference between a legal lap (by the Snail track boundary rules) with penalty on and off is over a second... down to 1:46.7 with more to shave if penalty is off while I only managed a 1:48.1 with penalty on, probably mid- high 47s with a bit more refined driving.

    I am here to have fun with people. I think it is fun to catch some air! But I want everyone to enjoy it. So if its too risky, I can change it.

    Like this if you want me to change it.

    I managed to get Into the high 48s that last run, but those first 5 laps sucked.

    The Kart Series has run Matterhorn Dristelen recently. If the Sunday Night events go up there .... probably should be a lower powered car to begin with. As in "walk before you run"?

    Re: Running the Matterhorn Dristelen
    Actually I think the VW Schwimmwagen typ 166 '42 would be just right. If you go off the side - then you can hide in the car for protection until you get to the bottom of the mountain ........ two days later. :nervous:

    It's your pick. Stick to it and enjoy it. You're never going to make everyone happy with any choice. I have a standing rule to always vote for any combo that contains a jump. That's my personal preference though.

    I was thinking the older Audi TT for the 4wd and not to much power.

    I was awfully tempted to pick Matterhorn Rifflesee for the Redbull Jr. Its a blast to hotlap on - give it a whirl! Racing would have been pretty ugly though. Could be a very entertaining track to race on with a 350ish pp car I would think.

    You can't please everyone, just stick with it. I just hate Cape Ring. If it could be deleted from Gran Turismo and bring back Mid Field Raceway or any other Original Circuit from the older games, I would be jumping with joy. But that ain't happening.

    Check it out! Just whipped up a website for myself to keep everything all combined in one spot. Will be posting updates, photos, videos, and more on my site so be sure to keep checking back! Will be tweaking things as I go as it's just a simple Wordpress site at the moment. Thanks again for all your support!

    NickMcMillen.com is the site. Nice to have it nice and simple lol.

    Missed quite a few Sundays over the past 2 months...wedding anniversary, Mother's Day, etc. And I've gotten a LOT slower from lack of seat time. I'm right at home in D2.
