    First replay of the day to review as a steward and I have a request/demand of everyone here. DISABLE YOUR HORN it's annoying to have to listen to a bunch of people sit on the starting grid and lay on their horn like little children.

    Maybe they could put a little thought into how they're going to get through turn one (and the rest of the race based on the number of IR's this week) cleanly.

    When I was room director, one of the things I use to ask please please with a cherry on top was not to honk on the grid. In my case, when I cut the mic off on my phones I pump up the volume to clearly hear my engine and tires and everyone around me making the honking a tremendously irritating noise going into my hears and raping my poor brain like a modda****
    So... HOOOOONK

    Start of a new season, and changes in division placement, would be my guess. It typically takes a week or so to get familiar with the "new" drivers in a given division. (Note: Not new to Snail). Once some driver's habits are learned, it seems the racing cleans up.

    Another observation while reviewing replays. Total race time means total race time. It doesn't mean the time of the individual lap that the incident occurs. It doesn't mean the best lap time at the time of the incident. It means the total race time which is in the upper right corner of your screen. There are even pictures in the instructions for how to file a racing incident report. C'mon man.

    You know, for all of my distain for the self described "racing goddess", that was something sharky, and Mopar where awesome for. They spent a lot of time hosting training sessions. They definitely where selfless with a good deal of their racing knowledge. Would be nice to see something like that again from our current top runners.

    Isn't being the fastest virtual racer a bit like being the guy in the minor leagues with the most Homeruns? ;)

    To be fair I just wish I had you gift. You should see if you can help coach some SNAILs:)

    I'm trying to stay in a good mood while reviewing IR's. Besides, it doesn't matter how many times you slap someone with a fish, they're still not going to learn to read.

    Maybe a copy of hooked on phonics would be more fitting. Then they could pick it up and start learning.

    Or just take it as it is. Its not an easy job but its a volunteer job.
    Anything you do for 100 people, there will always be 20 that don't get it.

    I know there is a saying that some super fast drivers can nail down super fast time in time trials but they cannot race with many people but mannnn Lloyd can nail top 10 on time trials and can win race after race consistently. Alien of the aliens lol--a true authentic alien--Lloydien!!!!

    It could also be from division realignment. I always treat week one - if there is much turnover in the drivers list - as a "get to know you day" of racing.
