    It's good that you were able to adapt well and win even though you had the idea of the balance backwards in your head, but the rear has more grip than the front (and carries more weight), at least when static, I guarantee it.

    It is pretty softly sprung and short wheelbased compared to modern cars, but it's essentially an old group B rally car! lol :)

    The extra challenge of car control makes it more fun to me, and also makes me feel like I have an advantage compared to those who don't feel the same, but I understand why people dislike it. It makes clean, close racing much more difficult than something stable like the R390.

    (Hey, at least they didn't pick the Renault 5 Turbo, it's way less stable than the 205, and it was on the table for selection! lol)

    PVR'd Gt Acadamy and was watching this morning, show goes past the scheduled finish and so I missed last few minutes and didn't get to see who won the Quad Challenge, not happy with Spike.
    Don't want anyone to post spoiler if others haven't seen it yet, but does anyone know how to see the show again. It doesn't seem to repeat during the week and I couldn't find a feed for it either :irked:

    In my market (DC), it repeated on MTV2 at 3:00 AM local time with no other repeats until the next episode.

    @dgaf95integra - were you the one who said "work, school - everything takes a back seat . . . " during the National Finals montage?

    Probably not available in Canada, as expected. Try using a proxy?

    You could try using Hola Unblocker, I've used it before to watch Top Gear on the BBC website.

    Edit: Looks like they're calling it Hola Better Internet now.

    I frustrated by SPIKE TV running later than advertised as well. I'm happy it was more than just 30 minutes, but why don't they adjust the time advertised time schedule? I too DVR'd, but watched it "live" too. I adjusted my DVR to record 15 minutes past the scheduled time in the future.

    Yea "Hola!" is great ... they also have an android app wich i use on my Note 3

    for pc i use "CyberGhost VPN"
    they offer a free version aswell with less functionality but enough to "unblock" sites.

    This. Every time I get on grid I check my brakes, shift through all the gears to make sure I'm in 1st. I've started in a random gear a few times but never since I've done my grid checks.

    The driver's list has been updated and all drivers that have submitted a time trial have received their placement messages. There will be another update coming tomorrow that will set the part time priority and pick up any drivers that submit a time trial before the deadline tonight.

    -GTPlanet Stickers Up For Bid-
    [​IMG]
    I have two GTPlanet stickers, one black and one white. Here's how it's going to work. The top two bidders will win the stickers. The top bidder will have their choice of black or white and the second top bidder will get the other. It's that simple! Please read below and follow the proper bidding etiquette.

    Proper Bidding Etiquette
    If you want to place a bid our outbid someone else, please clearly state how many $hells you are bidding and what you're bidding on. It is also preferred if your bid post is in reply to the original listing (if you're the first bidder) or in reply to the highest current bid (if you're outbidding someone else). As an example, a simple reply of "I bid [insert number here] $hells for the GTPlanet stickers" would be sufficient. :tup:
    IMPORTANT: Do not bid more $hells than the number of $hells you currently own.
    How To Win
    Once the top two bids lasts for 24 hours without being outbid by somebody else, the auction will close and the highest bidders will be declared the winner. I will then mail the stickers to the winner.
    GOOD LUCK AND HAPPY BIDDING!! :)

    I also want to give everyone the link on where the GTPlanet stickers can be purchased. The stickers are very well made and are of great quality, at a very good price. I recommend that everyone picks a couple up to put on your rig, like I did, and on your car:):tup:
