    @zer05ive does this mean that combo 2 and 3 are tied for votes again? You have to remove xrad's vote and coach's vote and that leaves us with a tie. The prize C winner vote for combo 1 so we can't use his vote as the tie breaker. Do we need to get the prize C winner to cast a separate deciding vote?

    sarcasm/ I say you take the technical director's vote and count it as 2 to break the tie./sarcasm

    Sorry, but I made a mistake in the vote calculation. I'll explain in more detail, but Round 3 is actually is the round that is staying. My apologies for the confusion, but the results have been updated up TOPP.

    My bad for jumping the gun on the results. The prize winners have been updated. Most notably, @jamilla is now the Prize C winner.

    You've still got every reason to celebrate! You were celebrating beating Lloydz, not winning Prize B! Keep the champagne popping! :cheers:

    Thank you baby Jesus. Ding dong the vette is gone.

    The challenge to every prize winner now is to pick something that will dethrone the Nissan GT500. It's not that great of a combo so it shouldn't be that hard. If you stay away from absolute garbage, it should go away next week.

    So just don't pick the Subaru 360 on the high speed ring and we should finally get rid of the GT-R

    Yeah. I actually grew to really enjoy it too. A good lesson on slow is fast, which I need more of probably.

    That being said, I also secretly hoped that it'd get 2nd in the votes, that spa would be frozen, and we'd get one of the senna cars to celebrate the Belgian GP. :-D

    Woe is me... :-P

    And in regards to the updates this week - zaharra finally? I'm not even gonna mention cour.....

    We won't see another oval for a while. Too many guys don't know how to race them and it got voted off. Some of the best racing anybody will ever have in this game is on an oval with a group of drivers that know how to push and be pushed in and through the draft. We simply don't have that here so the experience is not what it could/should be.

    I actually had fun doing the oval but like you said some aren't experienced enough for it.

    @NOISEBOMB_MSR

    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. Place the following links (URLs) in the favorites (or bookmarks) in your web browser for quick reference. Please make every effort to read and understand the following links. Over the years a great deal of time and effort has gone into creating this league and we would like nothing more than to have you but we ask that you take the time and effort to do your homework. 99.9% of any question you may have about SNAIL can be found in the posts below. Now if you've actually read this, post a :dunce: on the main thread.

    6. You drive fast and clean on Sunday :tup:

    Again, 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:

    I was in the Motegi combo endurox that nail speaks of and it was very good, it didn't race anything like daytona so I think our people here would be fine with how that combo works if someone ever chose it

    This whole recent oval track awareness is quite amusing. It almost sounds as though some one here is going to propose a nascar series. Having driven more nascar races then I care to remember I will say yes, there is a certain amount of skill unique to high speed group driving. Please remember the most defining quality to oval tracks, THEY ARE SOOOOO BLOODY BORING!!!!! I was in that enduro race this weekend. Do you know it took me 3 hours of circuit driving to remember how to turn right!?! I have only been in snail for a month. I love it! With that being said can we please, for the love of god not do another oval? That's my rant. Thank you for reading

    Keep practicing.. you will improve on the ovals!! :sly: Have to agree though, whoever didn't have much experience or were new to it, that was not the best car to get your feet wet on!!.. Its funny how alot of people changed their minds so quick on getting rid of combo 1? lol Odd?? :confused:

    If it makes you feel more comfortable, I've been here since January 5th and this is the first oval we've raced on.




    I choose to pass the freeze to @jamilla.

    10:4 to that. Smaller ovals would be so much more fun. 16 cars on a 2.5 mile track just doesn't cut it. My big toe was sore from holding the pedal to the floor.

    I must say that the thread regarding the 2-day maintenance going on today and tomorrow has been entertaining. Those folks were going crazy. 26+ pages of speculation, complaints and nonsense.

    I take it the Online servers are still down?

    I for one, am not going to complain about PD doing maintenance - it may indicate someone is actually trying to improve the servers!

    Now - I'm not necessarily betting they'll succeed, but I'm going to be an optimist and assume they're trying to do good.

    Lesson I learned long ago - I can't recall where, but I know it was held as a truism for my friends who are high tech contractors and work with the government and government officials:

    "Do not quickly assume the actions of another to be malevolent or uncaring, they are far more likely to be incompetent."

    I see what they're doing...

    Maintenance 1: Update 1.12
    Maintenance 2: Fixing the various things update 1.12 broke.

    I have tried to feed in a lot of positive energy in threads like that but they all shut me down and convince me this game is so bad that everyone should quit. PD sucks this, PD sucks that. Yet, they are still playing the game and yet they are still going to this game forum :D

    I stop responding to these negative complaints and nonsense and focus more on enjoying the game and enjoy it with the SNAIL team!!! Now I approve this message :D

    another, and in my case quite appropriate, message from the lunatic (GT6 that is) fringe about the updates (or not)

    Just take your meds and you'll be fine-ish, at least until tomorrow. :lol:

    And if we still don't get the update tomorrow then we're :censored:

    OK, back to kicking more tires. :(

    If anyone ever tells you that a car should have a Pre Purchase Inspection done by or a dealer, or a specialist, DO IT.

    Just walked away from a car that sounded good but needed another 65% of purchase price in repairs.... :eek:
