    I'll have a go tonight with it. Will post results late tonight. I want to have a go with some heavier Photoshop work on something from Mount Panorama too, with the landscape involved. Hope I have time for that in the next week or so.

    You and Jeff should come out of retirement and race.

    Wow - the brief rain at the track today was... almost frightening. Not too much actual moisture, but corner I had been taking at 60-80 went down to 35 with counter steering. Even my instructor was commenting on how slick the track was becoming. I'd liken the experience to learning something you know is important, you learn a great deal, but the experience isn't so much 'fun' as 'riveting' (as long as riveting means you are wondering if you'll make a corner when you're sliding around and hoping you don't hit a tree...).

    I'm going to make it an early night - no rain for the rest of the weekend, and I'm looking forward at less "Granny speed" driving.

    I assume you're talking about some of the rigs we use. You can see mine in my sig below. Once one post them up others will usually follow.

    Everything you ever wanted to know about $hells and The SNAIL Marketplace.

    You can find the SNAIL TT's in the club lobby. Everyone is welcome to run them. Periodically the results will be posted to the thread like this.

    I think you already got all the info before when you requested to join, no? Driver placement should be tonight or tomorrow (if you haven't been placed already).

    The goal is new driver placement tomorrow night. I had a fundraiser dinner tonight where I was doing the cooking of the chicken. Meat over fire is always good. I have to take my 8th graders to a basketball tournament tomorrow in Oakland and will be gone most of the day. If placement doesn't get done tomorrow night, I will get on it first thing Sunday morning. All times I mention are Pacific time.

    To GTPlanet? Not likely. You need a local path on a hard drive to upload them.

    @ianjames25

    Here's your official SNAIL Re-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 can't make Sunday night and still make work Monday morning, but I pop into practice now and again. Jeff moved on to iracing but both of us have been on hiatus from competition for a bit.

    A few months back I was kicking round the idea of another 'Stamina' but as real race season has arrived I'm not sure that I could commit. Good to see some old names and old folks still turning the wheel.
