    @RACECAR

    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:

    After some search I finally found this... On page 311 of this thread, a long long time ago.
    The second greatest curiosity of page 311 is Nick McMillen's request to join Snail just a few posts before mine.

    @LLOYDZELITE69 I've been wanting to ask you for a while: Do you have real life racing experience or is that just freaking natural talent?

    There has been some talk behind the scenes of a SNAIL Project Cars series. I figure many Gran Turismo fans will be getting a PS4 eventually since that's where GT7 is headed, so why not get our feet wet with a PS4 event? Who knows, maybe Project Cars will end up being better than GT7 anyways. I hope that's not the case, but one thing's for sure is that Project Cars will be beating GT7 to market (by a significant amount of time).

    Patience my friend.... it's the start of a new season, the bossman has a lot to do. You will know before Sunday's race which division you're in... not necessarily D6. It depends on the result of your time trial.. you will be placed accordingly. As this is your first race I suggest you join the Red room tonight to get your feet wet.

    Just make sure you do the oil change on your cars and put the correct tires on and you're all set! See you on the track tonight :tup:

    And keep the rim sizes the same as original.

    If you owned the car for awhile, even untuned, you may have to go to Suspension and Reset To Default. Some cars need a reset on Transmission as well.

    It pains me to say this but I'm out for RoC. Have a friend in town that I don't see more than 1-3 times a year, so gotta take advantage of the Friday night.

    I'm really sorry but I don't think I'll be able to race this Sunday. Trying to fix my internet and I lag really bad so people probably don't wanna race that. Sadly :(

    So I went out shopping for this week's cars, you listed the gtr gt500 as an '06, but the only gtrgt500 I see is an '08; the '06 is a Z!

    Am I high? Please clarify...

    Try and get hard wired instead of wireless and better, wired to the modem instead of router . If you have to go wireless make sure nothing else is using the internet while racing...... Clear your cache.

    Wow! Small world. I used to date a girl that lived on Nassau St and we hung out at Mill Pond.
