    Heck ya! Not having to pester folks at all means that every division had several folks step up and lend a hand, or take over after internet issues. Seeing the system work, and work as intended, in spite of hiccups - yeah, that does make me happy. :)

    Many hands makes for light work. :tup:

    Scoring has been copied up to the Results file and is now ready for the Data Entry Specialists to do their thing.

    Thanks to all the scorekeepers and those that picked up the ball to make sure the business side of SNAIL was handled in a timely fashion last night.

    And @Schmiggz , Handlebar ain't the only one that's happy when the gears mesh and the shift is made successfully and without much loss of SPMs.

    Why didn't D1 like Combo 3? Has it been around for a few weeks or is it something else?

    I personally hate it because the car does not turn.

    This and passing opportunities are few and far between without someone making a really big mistake.

    Also, @LLOYDZELITE69 is entirely too fast in that car ;)

    THAT!

    And you're still relatively down the order for race 2. Therefore not a good combo. :crazy:

    Parade most of the lap and then almost a guaranteed pass on the front straight. It's as artificial as F1 these days...... I said it, didn't I?

    Unless the person in front of you is directly behind someone. Then you just have to sit and wait for a mistake. Even if you get a better run off of the last corner than the guy in front of you it's almost impossible to get by him in there are at least 3 cars in line.

    I liked combo 3. I thought the racing was tight and I managed to pull off a last lap pass on nmcp in the last race for 4th spot.

    I managed to get a glimpse of @Dragonwhisky 's eyes as he made the pass. Almost 100% certain they were closed... :D

    Well done.. :tup: :cheers:

    What you saw was the glint of complete focus and total concentration, mixed with fear of what might happen if it went wrong.... :bowdown: to you for a job well done as well.

    My goodness!!! I can't understand the hate towards the GT-R!!! The car is absolutely fantastic, takes a huge beating without kicking back, handles amazing, is fast and furious...
    The craziest battle I had on D3 last night was exactly in this car with 5 people battling for a position for the entire race.

    Oh, I think I understand now. When both drivers aren't making mistakes, passing should be easy. One car should be able to catch 3 cars.

    Yeah, Ok, got it.

    We HAD to have been racing two different cars last night lol. The GT-R I was driving absolutely did NOT handle amazing. I must have gotten a lemon! What are the GT6 lemon laws? I'm calling my lawyer immediately!

    21 days away from my game ... and still another 5 hours and 750km to go. Feels like I was in rehab - but was not cured. The craving has not subsided!

    Nonono, but the point is when you have a car that is very stable and hard to make mistakes combined with a track with not a ton of racing room, it doesn't make for great racing.

    How do you get around a track faster than the next guy? Make fewer, smaller mistakes than he does and recognize them sooner. Everyone makes mistakes, but the more experience / skill you have the fewer & smaller you make. Thats why higher division drivers tend to like oversteery, lower grip cars for racing excitement - its easier to make mistakes and they are amplified :)

    have to agree with quietstorm and others, this car needs to go. What a brick. Quiet and myself must have both bought the car on the same day, the day the production line was totally wasted and forgot to add parts to make this rock turn. I had a blast with the other races,good clean fun. thank you
