    Hosts. Remember with the warm up sessions. Get all of the duties (replays and score keeping tasks) out of the way before you change the track. Once the track is changed, drivers may enter and the warm up session starts. Remember that the 90 seconds is a firm limit and you must start the race after 90 seconds. If a driver disconnects or leaves during the warm up, you do not wait. Once the 90 seconds is up, you start the race and they are treated as a disconnect during the race.

    I have read the first post and would like to join. I joined a lobby on gt-sport that was promoting SNAIL and I'm hoping to join to improve my racing skills.

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

    During the week we run a number of different events, we encourage all SNAILs to join as many as possible.
    Welcome to SNAIL :cheers:

    All hosts should start tonight's racing at the scheduled time. The only reason to hold the start is to give someone who was already in the lobby their three minutes to return from the time they left, provided they are believed to have been disconnected, or to sort invisible driver issues.

    Decided to put another table out for the latest race time target.

    16.5 minutes races.jpg

    I'm looking forward to changing it again when the longer tracks become allowed!

    I would like to start by apologizing to the following drivers for my part in your loss of positions during last nights racing: stelephant (-2 positions), tab1chevy (-3), skills (-2), Gulfvet (-4) and JLBowler (-3). And a HUGE apology to everybody in the league who is fighting at the top for what I did to TEX36...+8!!! positions in one corner. Who said that starting at the back was a disadvantage? I just filed the IRs on myself. Let me know if I missed any.

    And another thing; where does it say in the SNAIL users manual that the STi has a torque diverter? and what am I supposed to do with it? I was trying to change my brake bias and looked down to find I was adjusting said torque thingy. Anyway, I had fun and I thank the occasional front runner for dropping back to play with me every now and then.

    As with said brake bias, it is adjustable, but unable to be monitored.

    As a spec league, you technically shouldn’t adjust either, but as mentioned, it can’t be checked.

    fine print: management doesn’t support or endorse this message- these are my thoughts and should be viewed as such.

    as you get more comfortable with SNAIL pack racing, you’ll get the hang of it - as you are plenty quick

    Brake bias is now allowed in SNAIL

    the “torque thingy” is not allowed.
