    For anyone who doesn't already know, newegg is doing a shuffle for new graphics cards, essentially a raffle. But it's probably the best chance to get a card at the MSRP (or close to it). I believe they're also doing PS5 and XBOX this way, for those still searching

    You need to give relevance......:lol:

    In this post, ignore all the detail. Just look at the last paragraph.

    Hello;

    I have read the first post (several times) and would like to join.

    Thanks

    @BC_Bud

    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:

    RIP Bobby Unser. I wasn't old enough to see him race live, but I do remember his very distinct voice on the indy 500 broadcasts that I remember watching as a kid.

    And for anyone who is somewhat new to data entry @CourageRising besides myself, "all the detail" is very informative. Another good read. I avoid the need for binoculars by taking photos of the screens of interest on my phone. I can then zoom in when entering stuff. :cheers:

    Here are the unofficial results from our league night on May 2, 2021

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

    3. VLX_Gouletzky ----- voted to eliminate Round 1

    2. Grandpas_Money ---- voted to eliminate Round 2
    3. aedenmaddok ------- voted to eliminate Round 1
    4. no1needs2perish --- voted to eliminate Round 3
    5. Akzl298 ----------- voted to eliminate Round 1
    6. jlbowler ---------- did not submit a vote
    Division 4
    1. RacingChamp30 ----- voted to eliminate Round 3 - 89 (95.24 for Prize B)
    2. JamCar0ne --------- voted to eliminate Round 1
    3. CreAtlveManlAc ---- voted to eliminate Round 1
    4. Canoworms1 -------- voted to eliminate Round 1
    5. Cdn_Sweet_Tee ----- voted to eliminate Round 1
    6. Act_Accordingly_ -- did not submit a vote
    7. Skills_19657 ------ voted to eliminate Round 2
    8. FooleyCooley ------ did not submit a vote

    The round that received the most elimination votes was:
    Round 1 - TOYOTA 86 GRMN 2016 (SH) at Brands Hatch Grand Prix Circuit - 18:15 Clear (9 laps)
    Therefore the entire combo has been dropped from next week's line-up. Since @socalnatv wins Prize A, he gets to choose an entirely new car and track combo to replace it.

    The round that received the second most elimination votes was:
    Round 2 - BUGATTI VEYRON GR.4 (RH) at Kyoto Driving Park - Yamagiwa II - 09:30 Cloudy (9 laps)
    This means either the car or the track will be replaced for next week's line-up. Since @racingchamp30 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 @IceWarden 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/or 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 must not hit its rev limiter at any point during a race (even in a 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
    See Section 3.1 of the SNAIL OLR, Policies and Guidelines

    I don’t have time to run a bunch of laps for a official count. I ran a little at a bunch of tracks and Alsace felt the best.

    If someone wants to get a baseline that would be great. I just don’t have time this week.

    Had a chance for a 2:05.0 but messed up in the last section.

    "I have read the first post and would like to join,"


    I think it was written on the wall of the head at my watering hole!
