    @LightningFox

    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:

    @CANOWORMS1 this helps explain brake force but keep in mind that Fanatec has flipped the scale since this video was made.

    When @Rob Brown brought up brake pedal force a while ago it got me looking into my set up. When I increased the brake force it became obvious I needed to stiffen my rig, a perennial problem at my age :lol:. Here is my first solution.
    IMG_2178.jpeg
    This involved a ratcheting tie-down, 2 sticks for the pedal tray and some duct tape. Not elegant. And I'm nothing if not elegant :p.

    So this is the 'elegant' solution that arrived on Friday.

    Sweet Mother of Pearl — nice rig! I think your equipment is commensurate with your rig now. I’m anxious to hear how you adjust to higher brake forces in the coming weeks.

    Snail - Behind the scenes

    Here is a video to show a little bit what goes on behind the scenes to get the combo information to you every week. I'm no professional, and i found out my voice is extremely boring. I'm no Jimmy Broadbent for sure.... haha
