    @Master Uafoo

    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:

    My G27 is behaving strangely the last few days. When I'm on the grid to start a race it defaults to 3rd gear every time. I have to gear down to first in the few seconds before the race starts.
    Anyone seen / had this problem and know how to fix it?

    Derp, you're right its AWD. It just drives so much like an old 911 or a stratos I wasn't thinking about that.
    Oops ;) maybe there will be some close racing as a result.

    I have to strongly disagree. This car is so much fun to drive. Like ConnorWolf said, you have to be light and gentle with it. Sometimes if you feel too slow but maintain grip the entire time, you might be faster than Bing on the edge or slightly over. This is so true with this car. Sliding and getting a bit of tire smoke can easily lose you half a second

    i kinda agree ... my favorite part is the downhill double right, i love to take it with a very slight drift.

    If you are using paddles, just leave the shifter in neutral. It will default to 1st or whatever gear you want with the paddles

    I know you didn't say it was fun to drive, that was just a statement. I'm disagreeing that it's a piece of crap, lol. I don't think it's a piece of crap at all! :p
