    Thank goodness. I will start the backup process tonight after I pull in the sheets for this week. Will make another announcement when it's ready for data entry specialists to do their thing. It's the end of the season so it will be good for all the data entry to get done earlier rather than later, so we can clear the month and get ready for August.

    Do you plan to assist with data entry?

    No, just stating that it is working from a viewing standpoint, but I cannot verify editing functions

    I think you're doing great considering you're on a controller. That's probably part of your problem with the reverse grid as well. Not that you are doing anything wrong, but all the D1 drivers (myself included) need to remember you're on a controller and give you some extra buffer room. A wheel is definitely more precise, so in side by side racing, you need a little more leeway to account for that. Do remember that on your side as well that you can't race quite as close side by side as you might see others doing.

    If the two of you are going to discuss racing incidents in the thread, you had better file some incident reports for the stewards to take a look. If you fail to do so, you will be subject to thread penalties.

    Ha, well I for one have no clue why the stewards would see anything "off" in D1's racing last night (slowly walks out of the room)

    Seriously though, super fun racing last night, it was a little dirtier than usual, but 14 drivers and a lot of new drivers I expected that coming in.

    There were definitely some bumps and bruises last night, a few intentional and quite a few unintentional but one thing is for sure, ALL RACERS NEED TO ABIDE BY THE RE-ENTRY RULES! If you go off track, do NOT just drive back on as if nothing happened. If you can see in your mirrors and/or the mini map that you have a gap, then rejoin OFF OF THE RACING LINE until you are back up to speed and your tires are cleaned off.

    There was quite a lot of unsafe re-entry last night. I consider bumps and bruises just a product of hard nosed racing, but the unsafe re-entries last night was absolutely ridiculous!

    Last night I pulled out one of my best performance ever but I'm still kinda figuring out how I did it, eheheh.
    Great night D3. You guys and girl are amazing and racing with you is fantastic. Too bad I have to loose next Sunday.

    The same goes for the two of you. If you're going to discuss incidents in the thread, there had better be some incident reports to go along with them.

    Heard loud and clear! Just to clarify (keep in mind I am agreeing with you 100% here) a lot of what we are talking about is two people racing, attacking the track differently and going for the same result. Which leads to bumping...until we all get used to each other. Everyone has different "styles" when it comes to racing this game, some go for super smooth perfect apexes others brake super late turn in hard and then get on the gas...etc.

    I am planning on reviewing the replays tonight when I get home, seeing if any warrant a stewards review.

    Techincally I'm not discussing incidents, I'm reminding drivers to remember the rules...even in the heat of battle.

    Technically, you all but accused other drivers of breaking the rules. I bolded the part where you did so. So, technically, even though you didn't name any names, you are discussing, what appear to be reportable incidents, in the main thread.

    There seems to be a trend lately of obliquely bringing up incidents in the main thread. This needs to stop.

    If it didn't happen to me it's not my place to report it. Please don't assume, I was simply agreeing with what others had said. Yes, there were a couple of instances where someone did not follow the rules upon re-entering the track and what I MEANT that post to do is remind them of the correct way to re-enter the track safely.

    I didn't assume anything. I read what you wrote and took it at face value.

    You assumed it as I was complaining about being roughed up or raced unfairly and had no intentions of filing an incident report. But it's your world, please carry on.

    If you mean to remind someone how to re-enter the track, file the IR and let the stewards give them a six point penalty for it. That should go a lot farther in reminding someone than a general reference in the thread.

    I don't think so qwietstorm. You baldly stated you witnessed intentional and non intentional violations of the OLR, here in the thread. You called it complaining, I did not. I made no mention of your intent. It appears it is you who are making assumptions here, not I. Now, you may carry on.

    I personally choose not to invest too much hope into the IR system because of my personal experience in the past. I do not suggest that others do the same. It's just my opinion. I know that the majority of D1 reads the thread religiously and figured it would suffice.

    @Dragonwhisky it's over already. Just let it go. I'm done.

    Just wanted to say that the GUYS and LADY in D3 made my first night racing in S . N . A . I . L go 100 times better than I expected ;it was a very laidback,relaxed and social atmosphere ( THAT IS UNTIL IT WAS TIME TO RACE ) then it was all about business. My hats off to tccrash15 for the way he hosted and ran the room explained everything that needed to take place and how he expected all the drivers to conduct themselves was to the point . no delays . I had a very enjoyable first night the guys and lady who whooped up on us pretty good raced me clean and hard and I hope I did the same.Can't wait til next week. THANKS CAPT--DUBBS aka " STRDUBBS13 "

    Hi guys, I was asked yesterday about what sensitivity I use for my controller, I use 4, I dont know much what it does and would much appreciate if u guys controller and wheel users can give me any suggestions on what is a good sensitivity is to use, I know different driving styles might use different #. Any advice would be nice, feel free to send a pm if u don't want to crowd the thread thx

    I would use max sensitivity because it increases response time in certain areas, say a chicane where you quickly turn left to rught
