    Yea, and it looks like they changed a few other things from the stock version.

    I'm always late to the party. Just picked up my shiny brand new blue S5 for $1.00 at Best Buy last night. :) I'll keep the other $198 in my pocket and spend that on some racing gear over the next 2 years thank you very much! ;)

    I remember when I was chasing Lloyd my first time in D1 I was still practicing offline, and I managed a time in the 2:04 range in the WSR at Silverstone, my best time online was a high 2:06 and Lloyd's best time I saw was a 2:05.7 - about a second faster than me. I remember when he told me that when you practice offline it's about like having the next step up in tires, I decided to stop practicing offline.


    I don't know if anyone could do a low 2:04 online like I did offline. Just not enough grip.

    That was the same week I stopped practicing offline as well. I did 2:05s offline, but couldn't even get close online.

    I'm hoping to get out to see it soon. We had a sequence from the movie at work. I was on another show, so didn't get a chance to work on this one :(

    #TBT <--- Not sure if I am cool enough for that jive!

    First post on GTPlanet was on March 31, 2012. It was on this thread. Post # 2951

    My first SNAIL race was April 1, 2012. Last night was my 3rd SNAILiversary.

    The more things change, the more the stay the same. This League has evolved exponentially in the past 3 years but the heart and soul haven't changed at all. It was pretty cool to read through some of the post from when I joined. There are many that have retired since then and so many I miss. This has turned out to be a pretty awesome gig. Everyone that makes up this group whether new or old is why I have been here so long. Three years... Like, Wow man! Quite a bit of water has passed under the bridge...

    • Total Seasons: 35
    • Total Combos: 374
    • Total Nights Raced: 127
    • Total Races Run: 744
    • Total Wins: 39 (I stink like Limburger)
    • Total Podiums: 160
    • Total Points Earned: 7823.8

    I have had good nights and bad nights and everything in between. It has been a helluva lot of fun and want to thank everyone for making my Sunday night races something that I will always remember!

    I remember my first practice race!
    Zero was in front of me at Grand Valley reverse and I had no idea who he was!
    Anyway, he lost it! Right in front of me and I couldn't avoid him!
    The next time out he said he would try to not do that again. Haven't seen him on track since!

    Let's all petition to get him back on track!

    No idea when my first post was, but I am guessing about three years and a couple of weeks ago.

    I see. I'll have to double check on my own with a few different combos to feel it out but in my experience I've never percieved it as such.

    Maybe he was saying that figuratively rather than literally?

    Hello everyone!

    I was sent an email to my ps3 account to check out Snailracing and if I liked what I see, to join up. Well I do like what I see but have a question. I see that your series races are held on Sunday nights. I happen to work every other weekend at nights. Would this pose a problem? If not, then I would be very interested in joining.

    Thank you for considering me for you racing series.

    Racing every second Sunday would place you as a part time driver, which is not a problem at all. Full time driver status is obtained by consistently racing 3 weekends per season (seasons are 4 weekends). There are no limitations for part time drivers compared to full time drivers.

    @nmcp1 will be here with your welcome post!

    Here's your official SNAIL 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 SNAIL 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 start a conversation and add @CoachMK21, @Dragonwhisky, @JLBowler, @nmcp1 & @zer05ive as participants. The conversation title should be "Request To Join".

    2. SNAIL Administrators will respond with specific instructions on what you need to accomplish to join the SNAIL [Spec] Racing club. Sunday races are organized exclusively through the GT6 Community features within the game.

    3. 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.
    4. 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 SNAIL :cheers:

    I disagree. I've always struggled to hit the same apex speeds when practicing online as I can attain offline. If it did have something to do with connection speeds, I wonder if different people might experience different variances?..

    Pardon my ignorance if this has already been shared, but not sure if this angle has been seen here.

    I believe some of those screams were from a person that died. I don't want to hear that ever again...
