    Hope the races tonight went well! Just got back from an awesome vacation. As a teaser, I got to play with and feed wolves, had a wild black bear about 3 feet from my car, and hiked to some of the most amazing places you'll ever see. Will post some pics a bit later this week.

    No spoliers, but how did Austin Dillion walk away from that crash at Daytona?

    The motor and tranny was seperated from the vehicle, but fully intact. Scary crash.

    That whole finish can only be described with "Murica"... Glad everyone's okay. It's not every day you see a car go from 200 to 0 in an instant...

    That was one hellava wreck. He finished 7th though so one top 10 with a wreck like that isn't bad. But what I really liked was the fact that Jr's team went out almost instantly to help him and check on him to make sure he was alright.

    @Nom_Carver

    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:

    This is a trick question: How do I win a tiebreaker?

    A) Win more
    B) Win or Lose, Drive Faster
    C) Do better than the other guy
    D) Never ask Handlebar

    Actual answer~ish:

    Initially, a combo of A and C. First tiebreaker for any final finishing position with a tied score is who had more First Place finishes. If tied for first place finishes for the night, it then goes to who had more 2nd place finishes. Then third place finishes.

    If tied for number of 1st, 2nd, 3rd finishes for the evening, then I *think* the final tiebreaker is total time for the night, answer B.

    If you chose D, I may still answer anyways. ;) It is summertime...

    Since you missed the deadline for last nights race, you probably won't find out which division you'll be placed in until later in the week, but it's possible @JLBowler will add you sooner. It just depends on the number of newcomers we get and his time availability to get you placed.

    All Sunday night races are held at 9:30 pm Eastern. If you're interested in one of the many other SNAIL events, you'd be best served by visiting their specific thread.

    And, @Matthew Barry - you do not have to be placed into a division to participate. There is a good chance you will not know your division until Sunday. This is because it eliminates JLBowler having to balance one division at the start of the week for two new guys, and then re-rebalance when two more come on Thursday, and then re-re-rebalance again Sunday morning. One placement a week is plenty, imho.

    If you are already able to access SNAIL lobbies, check for others practicing online (often 2-5 are), and if you post that you want to work on a specific combo on this thread, and what time you intend to be online, you will frequently have others join you.

    Tonight is a popular and fun event, Monday Night Miatas. Worth attending, for sure.

    Miata's tonight! Boost racing has changed my race craft so much in the past month. I'm nowhere near the driver I was before switching to a wheel.

    No better way to learn how to race in a pack than Monday Nights!

    Ok, so, in this case, did you have the minijack from the headphones plugged in, or, did you have the headphones minijack plugged into the amp, and the amps minijack then plugged into the stereo? Anything coming through the amp, regardless of using the stereos minijack or the ps3's RCA can be controlled by its volume control.

    I think the stereo receiver and amp are all one unit. Last night I was doing that, using my stereo remote to control game volume and then the PX22 remote to control chat.

    I was raising the mouthpiece away from my head so I didn't see it. I thought it was still close enough to my face to be heard well but I guess not.

    That is likely what that switch is for, different volume setting, however, the instruction book will go a lot father in telling what controls do what on the amp.
    Ok, no, for clarity sake, when I say amp, I mean that little controller that came with your headset. You should be plugging the headset into that. That should plug into what ever you are using for a receiver, which would be whatever you plug the optic cable into coming from the PS3.
    Now, how I would suggest hooking up the amp, is to run them as I mentioned, to the TV's audio out RCA jacks. Your kit should have come with an adapter to turn the minijack at the end of the amp into RCA style connectors, one red, one white. Turn the TV to external speakers and the PS3 to put sound out all ports. You then use the amps volume to control the sound. USB will plug into the PS3. You shouldnt need a new multiAV out to get this to work.

    Oh okay, then yes that's what I have set up right now. I'll try what you're saying with the TV speakers. How do I set my TV to external speakers? I have a Vizio HDTV, not a SmartTV

    Close, but it actually keeps going down the line to 4th, 5th, 6th and so on place finishes.

    Incomplete D2 replays are up in the public folder.

    I had to disconnect from Combo 1 Race 2 because I couldn't see all the dirvers on the grid.

    If someone from D2 is reading this, your help is needed. Please upload Combo 1 Race 2 to the public folder and I'll upload the full package again. Thanks very much!

    Universally, hit the menu button on the remote, navigate to the audio or audio settings menu, press ok, enter or whatever acts as that function on the remote. Within the Audio menu there will be an option that says TV Speaker, switch this to off. that should do it. Then, on the PS3, go to settings, sound setting, then Audio Multi Output, and enable this.
