    Here are the unofficial results from our league night on January 17, 2021

    Click here for this season's points standings and click a tab at the bottom for more detail.

    Click here if the data linked above has already been archived and you would like to view it.

    2. Canoworms1 -------- voted to eliminate Round 2
    3. RacingChamp30 ----- voted to eliminate Round 3
    4. Cdn_Sweet_Tee ----- voted to eliminate Round 1
    5. FooleyCooley ------ voted to eliminate Round 2
    6. JamCar0ne --------- voted to eliminate Round 3
    7. Drummmer1979 ----- voted to eliminate Round 2

    The round that received the most elimination votes was:
    Round 1 - HONDA CIVIC TYPE R (EK) 1998 (SH) at Tsukuba Circuit - 07:00 Clear (13 laps)
    Therefore the entire combo has been dropped from next week's line-up. Since @Phlano099 wins Prize A, he gets to choose an entirely new car and track combo to replace it.
    PLEASE NOTE: Since @Phlano099 has already won Prize A this season, he is ineligible to win it again until next season. This means that unless he loses Prize A due to incident reviews, any driver who competed in Division 2 on Sunday night will have the opportunity to suggest an entirely new car and track combo. I recommend that all D2 drivers from Sunday night start TESTING combos they would like to suggest. That way, you will be ready to post a good combo when @JLBowler gives the "all clear". It's important to mention that a good combo will not have a car that hits its rev limiter at any point during a race (even in a draft). Also, please be sure to only suggest one combo. Any driver who suggests more than one combo will automatically be ineligible to suggest any combos at all. Please don't let that happen to you. Only suggest ONE combo (but not until @Phlano099 is confirmed as the Prize A winner).

    The round that received the second most elimination votes was:
    Round 2 - TOYOTA GR SUPRA RZ 2020 (SS) at Tokyo Expressway - Central Inner Loop - 12:45 Fine Weather (11 laps)
    This means either the car or the track will be replaced for next week's line-up. Since @TEX36 gets Prize B, he has the option to freeze the car or the track, or he can give that option to the Prize C winner. If he gives the freeze away, then he gets to decide what car or track replaces the part of the combo that is left unfrozen by the Prize C winner.

    Prize C goes to @LST so he gets whichever option the Prize B winner does not select.

    Preliminary prize winners, please don't announce your prize selection until all incident reports have been filed and it has been confirmed that you don't have any penalties. It's also recommended that you review the SNAIL combo history and other data on our car and track history so that you can get an idea how many times we've raced each car and track. Please remember that originality is always appreciated, so picking cars and tracks that we've never raced is a plus (but not required). What's more important is that you thoroughly test any combo that you are considering before making it your official selection. For example, any car you select should not hit its rev limiter at any point during a race (even in the draft).

    IMPORTANT: When posting your Prize A or Prize B selection, please list the complete in-game name of the car and/or track you are selecting. For example, if you want to choose the Integra Type R as your car selection, post "Honda Integra Type R (DC2) '98". If you want to select Monza for your track, post "Autodromo Nazionale Monza". Being specific helps us to update the lineup accurately and also helps avoid any confusion among the drivers. Also, please be sure to list the HP and Weight (LBS) of any car you select. For track selections, include the time of day (e.g: 09:00 Clear) or else it will be left to default.

    Car Selection Guidelines
    See Section 3 of the SNAIL OLR, Policies and Guidelines.

    Track Selection Guidelines

    Evening all. Looking for some feedback... Anyone know if the Turtle Beach Recon 70 is a decent headset for PS4? Cat chewed the wire on my other one, shopping for a replacement

    Was hoping you would hold on to the track. It’s seldom used, so thought we should give it another GoRound.

    We have a repeat prize winner this week.

    If you raced in D2 this week, you get to make a suggestion for Prize A from which @Phlano099 will make his choice.
    • Your suggestion must be made by posting in this thread.
    • You may not edit your post to change your suggestion.
    • Be sure to include the full in-game name of the car and track and time of day. Failure to include time of day will result in default being chosen.
    • The deadline to make a suggestion will be Wednesday @ 11:59 PM ET.
    • Remember that you are not voting for a suggestion that was already made. You are making your own suggestion.
    • Time of day with rain or wet track effects are not eligible for selection.
    • Please do not include photos or other extra text in your suggestion as it just has to be deleted when the posts are grouped together.
    SNAIL Approved Track List
    Full approved track list can be found here.

    Prize winners are allowed to choose the time of day for their track selection. If a specific time of day is not selected then the default time of day will be used. (Note: The time of day settings differ between arcade and online modes in the game. Always check the lobby settings when selecting time of day.) In the event that a track is frozen, the time of day will also be frozen with the track.

    Please remember that any car and track combo chosen must produce a mid-division lap time that is under 5 minutes. Also note that any selected track will be bound by the SNAIL lobby settings.

    Also remember that any car chosen must not hit the rev limiter at any time, even in the draft.

    @Tier1_bear7

    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:

    SNAIL Official practice lobby will be open at 9PM EST. Get there early to save your seat, we've been filling up fast. I will not be kicking any randoms to make room for members since our practice lobby is also a good recruitment tool for adding more members.

    If you can't get in you can either keep spamming the join button, or you can take it upon yourself to open an overflow lobby. Don't have the settings? Simple, highlight the full practice lobby, hit triangle, view room info, and it'll have an option to "save settings" without even joining the lobby. Now all you have to do is create/load a lobby.

    @Noob01_lmdead will you be racing tonight? Let me know since your internet connection doesn't allow you to join unless you're the first one in.

    Last week was plagued with server and connection issues. I blue screened after C1R2, rejoined the lobby and it seemed to be buggy. I re hosted and we still had more problems. Raul then took the reigns and as I tried to join his lobby I kept freezing at the loading screen. Hopefully tonight goes a little smoother

    New problem.... Whilst looking at Turtle Beach line of products, remembered I got a gift card from my father-in-law for Chirstmas... Went ahead and purchased the Stealth 600 Gen 2 series wireless headset.

    Nice set (considering I didn't spend a dime on it). However, it dawned on me with the new addition of a wireless usb transmitter, I don't have enough ports anymore to support Headset, T150, and Hard Drive. I'm positive someone here has run into this same issue, would like to know what type of a usb hub I can use for the wheel and the headset, without any sort of problem. I have been going through reviews all afternoon, and I have found way to much contradicting information on the issue.

    Any brands or particular product work best?
