    My Fanatec stuff came today, I think I should have bought that instead of a T500RS.

    My previous fatty did that, that is the dreaded YLOD. A software failure like that can be fixed though, it is a machine, but it is a pain to do. It would be better to just buy a new one. If you can salvage files from the HDD, you may not have to start from scratch.

    Well since you're insisting so much I'll tell you why I left...
    I left because one of the final win contestant hit over 6 times in a 200 meters span trying desperately to pass me until he finally hit me so hard that throw me off track dragging Kozsak with me.
    If there's something I can't stand is dirty drivers going beyond boundaries of decency to get a position and since I don't want to ruin your fun with loud protesting, I rather leave quietly. BAM! Now you know.

    Well just in case you change your mind..... ;)

    @SileightyCyrus

    Here's your official S.N.A.I.L. Welcome Post!

    Thanks for your interest!
    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. Send a PSN friend request to the Race Director or Primary Host from your assigned SNAIL Division. 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.

    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:

    The BAM is a nice touch :)

    This stuff is going to happen wherever you race...every week. You can't just roll over and quit everytime it happens...especially on the first corner. Stick with it and try to get some positions back. If not for yourself, for the rest of the guys in the room where you have volunteered to perform certain duties requiring your attendance.

    I think you are probably one of the most likable guys here. We hate to see you lose control over things like that.

    We would always love to have additional drivers with GT Academy experience. Welcome!


    I hope you can get something figured out. YT can be awesome...at times.

    -ATTENTION D2 DRIVERS-

    Please make sure to get your friend requests to me (nmcp1) and the back up host ( @JoeW ) before Sunday 9:00 PM EST. Please remember it's your responsibility to send out FR and not the other way around! D2 will open shortly after 9:00pm and I suggest everyone get in early so as to diagnose any connection issues with the host if any.

    If you plan to race Sunday night, you will need to send me a friend request. If you don't, it's your own damn fault.

    Hi guys,

    Not sure if this has been posted here yet, but an incredible tune for the F1 Lotus has been posted. Any F1 fan needs to have it. Try it out.

    Thank you sir! And thank you to @nmcp1. I apologize if this has been mentioned, but would I be able to participate at any level if I were only available a one or two sundays a month?

    Yea, we have part-time drivers too. Once you take the test and get placed in a division you can show up as often as you want.

    Color / Number Choices


    Now that we've had quite a bit of movement throughout every division, it would be a good idea to visit the color / number list to make sure there aren't any overlapping colors and numbers within your new division. The list is in my signature.

    In addition, if you haven't submitted one, please do so.

    It actually works incredibly well. I went from 6th to first before the first corner in a race last night.
