    So @nmcp1 was Nikola Tesla and you were Edison.

    So it's not the best picture and I'm not the greatest looking, but a beard that is.

    One must yield to the mighty power of the 'Stache! After cutting a foot off of the ol' curls at the end of June, I'm able to get my groove on once again. Beware, D5!

    Maybe no prize B or c. Replace one combo every week. SIMPLE....EASY....FAST. That way you get at least two combos you have seen before AND it keeps the costs down...we have allot of new guys...who ware grinding just to keep up.

    BTW.....IT'S HERE!!:gtpflag:

    Ned to Body check in ! Knees ...ok ...back ok......braking lots better....now if I only can get rid of
    three weeks rust :crazy:

    My screen rest is a bit of a jury rig. I will buy one of his screen stands when I sell some more of my many toys .
    Bob markets these in the US and Uk ,where they use Sparco Seats (great for Gs but not so good for fanny fatigue). Easy assembly... all powder coated steel and well engineered . He has stopped making these and has 39 left. Free shipping and on sale.

    Yes Virginia.... it is flat on the floor (pretend you are in a formula car !!). Seat folds flat back so you can store in a closet. (mine will not move one GD inch!!)
    www.bobearlracing.com/ for his Virtual Racing Cockpit
    www.bobearl.net/ for his "Real " racing driver development and videos
    Now if the boss will put me back in 6 where all my racing Buds are, :gtpflag: life will be good.:bowdown:

    @sprintr64

    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:

    Just wondering, who is S.N.A.I.L? Is there a hierarchy? When and/or whom started the group?

    That, along with Team SNAIL and 7 divisions of drivers. @zer05ive sits at the bottom of our inverted pyramid.

    R1

    @Jakedog23 gets to turn one first followed by @SHOCKY_WELL @jimeez @euclid58 @turnupdaheat @Unleashed @socalnatv @nmcp1 and @Nicktune.

    TRME04.jpg

    TRME03.jpg

    This time it only took @Nicktune five laps to move through the field and chase down @Jakedog23 for 1st place.
    Jake held on for 2nd with @socalnatv 3rd.

    TRME01.jpg

    R2 begins.

    AH01.jpg

    @nmcp1 leads around the first turn followed by @SHOCKY_WELL @turnupdaheat @euclid58 @jimeez @Unleashed @socalnatv @Jakedog23 and @Nicktune

    AH02 .jpg

    @turnupdaheat powers out of the hairpin in 2nd followed by @socalnatv @euclid58 and @Jakedog23.

    AH05.jpg

    @Nicktune (in 2nd) after having some early race misfortune, worked his way up the order and finally chased down @nmcp1 with five minutes remaining and then moved into the lead.

    AH07.jpg

    R3

    Once again @SHOCKY_WELL did a great job leading the opening laps followed by @socalnatv @Jakedog23 @Unleashed @nmcp1 @jimeez @turnupdaheat @Nicktune and @euclid58.

    I thought I read the first post quite throughly and didn't see any information that answered those questions, hence asking them. Maybe my comprehension or proof reading is sorely lacking Dragon, could you quote me the answers to the questions I was asking from the first post because I reread it and still have those questions. But for clarity I was wondering if one person started S.N.A.I.L or a group of people did and who was or is responsible for the various duties involved. Just when did it form and why? Interested and curious that's all.
