    the above is just me trying to figure out the spoiler button. Thanks for your patience and understanding. No need to bring out the fish.

    @Gouletzky it is rather easy, go to the reply box, with the icons located on the top in the reply section (B I ...... ) click on, Insert, the fourth from the right. then spoiler, then add your pictures. If anyone knows of a better method please share.

    Today is World Penguin Day!

    Most of these flightless birds live in the Southern Hemisphere. The famed tuxedo-like colouring is a form of camouflage while they swim: from above, the black blends in with dark ocean water, and from below, it appears as if the sun is reflecting off the surface of the water.

    Manual and RWD. All that matters. Literally.

    Before that official rules clarification is made, I'd like to take the opportunity to suggest a few improvements we can make to improve SNAIL in every regard. They are as follows:

    1) Make a spec color for every individual car to be painted. All competitors must run this defined spec color, which will be different for every individual car. This will make things easier in case someone forgets the name of a car at some point. They can just say "the neon green one" or whatever color it is and we'll then easily identify the car they are talking about. Also this will make it harder to identify individual drivers while racing and thus make disagreements about driving etiquette harder to have.

    2) Decisions for weekly prize selections must be made between exactly 2:27 and 2:31 AM GMT every Tuesday. If anyone submits a decision later, it will be rejected. We will then go to a default selection of cars and tracks based on an alphabetical order. Any submissions made before 2:27 will be rejected and the prize winner may not be able select the same thing again. This is to standardize the process and make things run more smoothly.

    3) Instead of reverse grid races, we should run "reverse races." Drivers are only allowed to use reverse gear during these races. Anyone found to be using a forward gear at any point during these races will be disqualified. This is to enhance the adaptability of all SNAIL drivers. The race starts might be a little hectic, but eventually true driving ability will show through.

    4) In order to create a greater sense of community, comaraderie, and equality among all SNAILs, you must address all SNAIL members as "bro" when speaking to them. When speaking about fellow SNAILs in the 2nd person, you must use the prefix "bro" before saying their name. Examples include:
    "The other night bro-msgt finished in ......."
    "Bro-connorwolf took a different line at ......."

    5) At least one race combo per month will be designated as a "lawnmower race." Track boundaries will not be enforced in these races. This is to further develop driver adaptability by exposing drivers to different surfaces during the same race, and to help drivers better understand racing lines by completely opening up the entire track map for exploration. An added benefit is that SNAILs will be better equipped to race in open lobbies where the host allows corner cutting.

    I think you'll find that implementing these changes will greatly contribute to a more rewarding SNAIL experience. I would be very surprised if at least 4 of these changes are not made immediately.

    I'm sorry, and I see you're trying to be funny. But it's just not.

    Management will take these suggestions under consideration. There will need to be numerous groups formed to study the validity of each suggestion. Test races will have to be run. Focus groups will have to be formed and evaluated. I would expect the process to take somewhere between 5 and 7 years for all the studies to be completed and any kind of decision on implementation to take place.

    Thank you for your suggestions. I'm now off to coach a basketball tournament that I hope will stretch well into the evening.

    No - just a turbo wing. 3.2 redone to 3.4 and some do-dads for handling.

    I think we need one of those combos to be 'no rules enforced / jungle for all' to improve the drivers abilities to take on dive bombs.

    I was laughing ! ROTL!

    Aside from (or maybe because of) being flightless, it seems this bird is also lacking a sense of humour.

    That Logitech logo has likely been on their front page for a while. There has been Logitech support for the PC release for a while now. Still no Logitech on their console lists though. There's a link in their FAQ that has a list of the supported wheels, sorted by platform.

    Logitech support or the logo? I thought someone posted a list of supported wheels a long time ago on this thread. Pretty sure I remembered seeing Logitech for PC.
