    That was hilariously done Tom.

    Man, he's just pokin' a little fun at you dude. No need to go off like that. He's not the only one to have to read one or two lines written by you before being able to "follow" what you are trying to get across.

    Lets keep it light folks.

    Just to be straight @gotdirt410sp , I knew what you were talking about after reading about 4 words, but, I keep up with the bugs and glitches thread and that transmission glitch was mentioned here.

    Hey Guys, I had fun practicing with you guys in the Yellow Room last night at Red Bull Ring. I must admit that I was getting very frustrated with myself – I lost ~5 sec per lap. I can see that I have a lot of work to do in preparation for such races and would like to sign in – could you pls provide me with a short TODO’S.

    Looking forward to – cheers from Vienna, sinna123sinna123

    I remember that night. There was a connection issue and I couldn't see you. So, I keep on asking "Where is that sinna guy" The others keep on telling, "don't worry, he's behind you" I like thought his right behind me, chasing me.... not 5 secs a lap slower.... Yep, it was a good night - and you have improved a lot since.

    The first time was at Laguna Seca, which was one of the reasons that I decided to sign up in the first place. I was familiar with that track and figured it'd be a good "first-timer" race where I could get my feet wet. However, the race was on low-grip tires and until then I had only used racing softs when racing with my friends online. I put in some practice to get used to the lower grip, but I didn't realize that practicing offline had different physics than racing online. The result was me spinning out several times during the race; a very frustrating (and confusing) debut for me.

    The next race was a Monza. Let's just say that it didn't go very well either. :grumpy:

    Umm... That's news to me.... Offline physics are different? That's important to know for sure.

    It potentially has something to do with connection speed...potentially is the key word here.

    You'll generally be 1-2 seconds faster offline according to the clock.

    You generally get more grip when practicing offline. It's best to practice online.
