    15% of snails survive digestion by birds and are found alive in their droppings.

    Ok. If someone could test a little later today on that SLK TT and let us know if it's still not letting the car in. If it isn't I'll probably have to delete the current TT and recreate it with the correct settings. What is the weight restriction set to now? I set it 1325 last night and then reset the time trial for the saved settings.

    Edit; Just rebuilt the SLK TT event from the website. Somebody please test it out and let me know if it's set up correctly now.

    Thanks.

    Oval track racing at all levels is JUST DIFFERENT. It required different motor skills and attitudes. Road racing is a natural development of street driving and Oval Racing Skills necessary for competition are not developed there. They need to be developed on ovals. By and large Oval racers have the skills to drive sports cars because of their mind set and because they drive cars every day. Road Racers...even VERY GOOD ones have a hell of a time trying to aquire 5 to 10 years of oval skills overnight. Scott Speed and JPM and Danica come to mind. They all went there for the money.

    Case in point JPM is likely to win the Indy series this year instead of being a mid packer in NASCAR. His passing maneuvers have to be seen to be believed. :eek:

    IMHO

    Race tracks aquire character over the years and as such IMHO they should not be screwed with. Yes modern cars exceed many old tracks capabilities but then you just tailor the entries to the track. You could smooth out Sebring or straighten out the 'Ring.. But why...then they would not be as challenging. They no longer race FAST cars at the ring.....even semi fast GT3s stress its capabilities...

    We go to these tracks because they are what they are....and you can compare a lap by Jimmy Clark and Stirling Moss to your modern favorites. Also new fast safe tracks lack EVERYTHING..except being fast and safe.

    Sorry...I hate modern racing....it is so ......DULL.

    I will never stop being surprised by how much on board footage exists from the first half of the 20th century.

    Hear, hear. I have this argument with new F1 fans all the time. People that think Bahrain, China, Sochi are great tracks and can't understand the fuss about Monza, Hockenheim, French GP, etc.
    I grow tired of explaining, but I miss Imola, Paul Ricard, Hermanos Rodriguez (before the butchery to be inaugurated this year), Ostereichring (also before Tilke), my home track here in Rio (unfortunately destroyed for the :censored: Olympics), old Fuji, the list in endless.
    I know things don't ever go back to where they were and most of these changes had to do with driver safety, but I also believe there is a balance that was long ago lost.
    But, such is the plight of those that live to see the future...

    On a lighter note, it's Friday!!!!

    Love that he lets go of the wheel to get his googles on. Ah, the Maestro....
    And for anyone that hasn't seen that footage, please go get it, because watching him drift that car is absolutely incredible.

    Onboard cameras have certainly become more inconspicuous over the years!

    If in doubt, look at the online ranking leader board and see what car the fastest guys in the world is using - usually the
    Tommykaira ZZII '00 is up there, but I haven't had look at it yet.

    the Tommy Kiara is fast and a lot easier to control than most others.

    I did it in the ZZII, it took about 2 laps to get the gold and move on to other things.

    Reminded me of this, talking about Road Car only lobbies with 600-650PP:
