    On a different note.

    SOUND ISSUE

    PD are aware of the issue, and believe it to be related to the introduction of additional gauges.
    A fix is expected, but in the mean time please disable your additional gauges.

    No, you aren't taking full responsibility for your actions if you're only participating in half of the process. Don't get me wrong - on-track concessions are good and just but they're also required. Self-filing an Incident Report is the next step in the personal responsibility process, wherein you'll receive additional penalties beyond track position during the race. Whether or not the victimized driver is your friend or not has nothing to do with it.

    Also, it is indeed a "position", as used in my post. I'm not going to argue over that, nor will I argue over what every evolved person on this planet knows, which is that characterizing failure to take personal responsibility as wrong is an indisputable fact.

    To answer your question, I don't separate the two as being in competition given one is a hard SNAIL law but if you really want to split hairs I'll go there and say I believe the IR process has the greater influence over SNAIL being as clean as it is. On-track concessions are a good and just requirement but they do not produce the lasting penalty the IR process does. Having and using both is the only way to cultivate an environment where there is a compelling sense of fair play, focused solely on clean racing.

    I was hesitant to post this follow-up because I don't wish to fan any further drama flames but I have strong feelings about seeing SNAILs discouraging the use of the IR system, especially coming from senior members, and super-especially coming from the Chief Steward. The directly visible effect it has on the racing is the reason I have stayed and I selfishly want the racing to stay as clean as it has been for me so far.

    LMAO!!! I never installed any!

    The Scirroco doesn't act like a front wheel drive per say. It is no where near the understeer of a typical FF.

    Its more difficult to be consistently well when there's more on track. The adjusted totals make complete sense. If youre rscing against 4 people all night, youre guaranteed at least 78 points even if you don't race well and finish last. If someone races against 14 others, and averages a 4th in each race, it makes complete sense to reward them with more adjusted points.

    What youre saying is the number of cars on track shouldnt be factored in? Winning from the back of 16 cars is way tougher than from the back of a pack of 4.....

    Yeeeaaaahhhhh.... Something new. I love it user. Good job.:tup:

    I drove the scirocco on the DTC and the only thing I didn't like was how fast the front tires was gone but on DTC races last 15 minutes so it shall be fine

    Oh you know I don't care Shocky!! Lol. Throw rain tires on it! I was just throwing a TC out there that would make it really hard to drive! I think it would really make everyone real cautious and be a true test of patience! Like @JLBowler said.. You just have to learn how to drive it and I agree! I know I'm the minority on that but it would be a different experience!!

    It was Silverstone that was frozen in the NSX/Silverstone combo. The VW/Nurburgring combo was dropped.

    Ill also get some pics of the 2 new combos tonight.
