    But the regular pedals, not the Pro's....and no rig, although not sure that particular homemade rig is worth a whole lot?

    It's not worth whatever shipping costs would be if he doesn't live within driving distance.

    Also, that's almost $300 CAD less. I don't know that the pros are different enough to warrant the cost when it's just a different frame that allows you to flip the pedals, especially when he could just flip the T3PAs on a rig if he made one.

    I took part in the TT and my name appeared online in the results. (I had already sent friend request to the PSN name given in the signup). So what could be the issue. @SAMHAIN85

    Maybe the time trial account needs to run a Q? A glitch?

    I also set a time, friended the snail account and I don't see my name on the board. My time would have been right around racingchamp30's time.

    There are 2 ways within the daily to view the leaderboard @SAMHAIN85.
    Do they both show the same list?

    Totally agree with you on shipping, which is why I asked where he was located, and pointed out where these were.
    As for the pedals themselves, they feel quite different from the regular T3PA’s imo, but I don’t think they’re real expensive, like $200cdn, and like I said I got mine for free through a safety bonus program, or I wouldn’t have upgraded, so I can’t say if it’s worth it or not.

    I was under the impression the mechanical parts of the pedal set were the same, I haven't got to use them myself. I'm sure the inputs feel pretty different, it's like driving a German car with a floor mounted accelerator pedal then switching to a American or Japanese car with a top mounted pedal.

    I just looked on bestbuy.ca and you're right they're $200 new, and the T3PA are $125. In theory he could sell the T3PA for $100 and still be up $200 total AND have a warranty if he really wants the pros.

    There's also always the G29 which is even cheaper. https://www.bestbuy.ca/en-ca/produc...playstation-pc-dark-941-000110/10383067.aspx?
    With a $400CAD buy-in price he could get it and a pre-fabbed rig too for less than that T500, or get a G29 and wheel stand and spend less than the wheel I recommended. It just all depends on what is most important to him for his setup.

    I found out that you can change your PSN name now, but some games might reset your status

    After 52 years without a cup they deserve one. My pens may not make it past round 1... Too many fast young guys on great teams this year.

    I have read the first post and would like to join. I joined your lobby the other day because one of my friends was in it and was told to exit and join.

    @Miklevey

    Here's your official SNAIL Welcome Post!
    Thanks for your interest!
    Here's what you need to know (and do) in order to join SNAIL Racing League:

    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, @JLBowler, @nmcp1,@zer05ive ,@Rednose58,@MajorBlixem & @SAMHAIN85 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.

    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:
