    Looks like you have 24 $hells to play with.

    I've fiddled with the sheet and it seems to be pulling the source data again. WTF Google?

    The round that received the most elimination votes was:
    Round 2 - Chevrolet Camaro SS Touring Car '10 (Race Hard tires) at Indianapolis Road Course (7 laps)
    Therefore the entire combo has been dropped from next week's line-up. Since @euclid58 wins Prize A, they get to choose an entirely new car and track combo to replace it.

    The round that received the second most elimination votes was:
    Round 1 - Acura Integra Type R '01 (Sport Hard tires) at Autumn Ring (7 laps)
    This means either the car or the track will be replaced for next week's line-up. Since @jamilla gets Prize B, he has the option to "freeze" the car or the track, or he can give that option to the Prize C winner. If he gives the "freeze" away, then he gets to decide what car or track replaces the part of the combo that is left unfrozen by the Prize C winner.

    Prize C goes to @WaLT_100R so he gets whichever option the Prize B winner does not select.

    Preliminary prize winners, please don't announce your prize selection until all incident reports have been filed and it has been confirmed that you don't have any penalties. It's also recommended that you review the SNAIL combo history or other data on our car and track history so that you can get an idea how many times we've raced each car and track. Please remember that originality is always appreciated,so picking cars and tracks that we've never raced is a plus (but not required). What's more importantis that you thoroughly test any combo that you are considering before making it your official selection. For example, no car you select should not hit its rev limiter at any point during a race (even in the draft).

    IMPORTANT: When posting your Prize A or Prize B selection, please list the complete in-game name of the car and/or track you are selecting. For example, if you want to select the Amuse Superlegara for your car, post "Amuse Nismo 380 RS Superlagara". If you want to select Monza for a track, post "Autodromo Nazionale Monza". This makes it much easier for the lineup to be updated accurately and also prevents confusing other league members as to which car or track you are selecting. Also, please be sure to list the PP and HP (after oil change) of any car you select.

    Car Selection Guidelines
    Dealership Cars - The maximum price for a selected car is now $1,000,000
    DLC Cars - Only DLC cars that are FREE and currently still available in the PlayStation Store can be selected.

    Track Selection Guidelines
    Any non-DLC track can be selected as long as a single lap with the car combo'd with it would not take more than five minutes to complete. For example, don't select anything that includes the Nurburgring's Nordschleife.

    Race Date: 14 September 2014

    Currently tracking 20 Incident Reports


    We have at least one prize winner with a racing incident being investigated by the stewards. This may, obviously, change the order of the prizes to be selected. All winners are asked to refrain from making selections until the Weekly Steward's report has been posted.

    The target deadline for the Steward Reviews, this week, is Wednesday night by 10PM Eastern. The Steward Summary will be posted as soon as possible, following completion of reviews.

    :@: SNAIL Stewards, please make your way to The Incident Review Scoring.​

    I guess I need to restart game?

    Edit: Yes... download is 484 MB... just finished installing... now in game prep... overall took about 30 minutes. Just in time for me to go sleep. :lol:

    Zaharra/Sierra Rally has arrived. New Toyota VGT, FT-1 Graphite, and Nismo GT-R from GTA. Ability to add more gauges, online quick match, and a change to the TS030 hybrid motor behavior.

    Once mine installs, let's go find out!

    Without going to read the docs, my guess is it'll match you up with the racing you want, based on a bunch of parameters (race for fun or real, PP level you set, drivetrain, difficulty of course maybe?)

    Platinum found a page of SNAILS practicing for the Miata Test....yeah I know....testing for a test. Lol.
    He left before we could explain what we were doing but came back and he got an intro on what SNAIL was and how to sign up. He then followed us over to the Miata Test and raced with us and he was a pleasure to race with. Welcome...glad you signed up.

    IMO, putting SLIPSTREAM to 'weak' will reintroduced the reasons the 'real' setting was added to this option. Weak was hard to manage without practice. I am only concerned with avoiding a collision by the driver that has 'not' found a room with a 'weak' setting and had enough time to practice the effects, and found a new brake point.I haven't seen that many SNAILs in practice nights, so if the change is made please post a big announcement to practice as much as possible.

    FYI, everyone with a wheel with FFB on, check your settings. Mine was suddenly much weaker after 1.12 applied. Having control over the FFB strength is a documented change, so go find what works for you!

    Yeah I was reading about that.. they made a ton of changes for FFB wheels! Read it on Sonys site! I have to check it out now? sounds like there's a lot of crashing going on during this update? definitely don't want to deal with that BS right now!

    I tried Online Quick match after the update and online services went back online. It gives you a choice of 300PP, 400PP and 500PP races to choose from. Get to choose the car and then race against others online. Their is a coming soon tab as well.

    @PlatinumRolex

    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: in this 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 ran the seasonal event for the FT-1 first, and shadows were bugging out really bad at Mount Panorama. Shadows for the track and car were very low resolution and flickering like mad. I ran the 3 Sierra time trials and everything there was fine.

    As for FFB, it's weaker from what I've experienced so far with a G27. I havent really driven it with many cars yet, but it seems much weaker initially, on light steering input, and gets stronger, almost exponentially, but still weaker than before.
