    Do you spend so much time browsing SNAIL threads that your phone is constantly running out of battery life? Do you ever find yourself looking for a power outlet so charge your dead phone? If so, please keep reading! Up for auction is a brand new and sealed Targus smartphone backup battery:

    I've gotten used to racing with the map off since I use bumper cam and have the rearview to glance up at. But does anyone turn the driver list off? For longer racing series you can't because it tells you when people are pitting which is integral but for Sunday night. The only position that you need to be aware of is your own and if you want to see who you were battling with you can watch the replay. I also turn names off so cars and racing looks more realistic.

    How do you race?

    Just more time to find a deal on a T300 wheel. I took a job this weekend that will pay for it and then some so now I get to wait and see if I can do better. It is nice to work 9 hours doing something that I love to do and pay for the thing.

    @Rednose58 Possible banners? I don't know if people like my shots, don't usually get comments about them. I think part of the problem is my TV is really old and my monitor is really cheap, so the black levels go all weird from one to the other. I tried to leave negative space for text and cropping but I don't know how the background colors will work.

    Sometimes a little slide can be pretty quick (or at least pretty)

    I used to turn the list off until I realized I didn't know who to apologize to. :) I keep it on full time now, but I always try to remember to turn names off. Names above cars are very distracting to me. They tend to hide marks, especially when in a close group. I actually tried cockpit view a little on Monday during the Miata racing. I was surprised that I didn't have much difficulty finding pace but I was less comfortable racing as it seems everybody is closer for some reason. It was definitely more intense and I really likes being able to see "my" wheel. Another reason I should get off the stick....

    I will be off the grid (SNAIL racing wise) until Monday.

    I don't know how strong the cell signal is at Virginia International Raceway, so I may be truly off the grid.

    Have fun this week, good luck D7 and all divisions.

    It turns 25 this year. And it's in GT6. But it's slightly over the million cap. Can we make an exception? ;)

    Also, in the article, it says this:

    "Just two years after this base model launched, the 190 E 2.3-16 arrived on the scene, with 185bhp and motorsport genes. When the new Nürburgring opened in 1984, Mercedes fielded 20 identical 190 E 2.3s for a 12-lap, christening race.

    People like Jack Brabham, John Surtees, Alan Jones, James Hunt, Niki Lauda, Alain Prost and Keke Rosberg all lined up on the grid. And Ayrton Senna. Who, after a tight race, whupped them all."


    Is there any footage of this? And hahaha and Senna beating all of them.

    That sounds like a real fun combo!

    Sounds like something to do after practice tonight?

    Totally agree that car should be allowed even tho its over a million.

    We raced the Merc 190 2.3-16 at Nurburgring back in March '14 and, as it reminded me of Senna's drive, I posted this video at the time:



    A bit more race footage:

    I would, but I work until midnight, and F1 practice airs at 12:30am so I'm gonna watch that when I get home. With a bong and a beer.

    How is it to watch F1 high? I imagine all the cars, colours, movement, can't be bad.
