    Yeah I noticed you're having some troubles - have you tried clearing your system cache?

    Mine's been cleared by the way all, in case of mass troubles tonight FYI.

    Cleared cache, restarted PS3 and it's still doing it when I try and join a lobby. It says disconnected from PSN, and I'm sure it usually says disconnected from media server or something

    Do I actually join the lobby? It disconnects as soon as I see the main lobby screen.

    Hmm it sounds like it's your internet playing up. Reset the router?

    Disconnected from media server usually means the PS3 has lost contact with a PC or something nearby which has Windows Media Player set to share with the local network... that's what usually happens to me anyway.

    It just increases understeer from what I know if it, so not sure if it'll prove a competitive aid.

    Nothing is helping so I'll give up for race 1 at least. Everything else is fine and the PS3 is fine until I join a lobby :censored:

    Skeng without FL's must have about a 10 point lead.

    Lost time in each races with people battling way to hard than needs be, not clever.

    R1 and R2 was fine.

    R3 true pushed me little, so had to go off track and then tires were sandy and didnt have any traction. So possible 1st place lost. But still had fun. :D

    Glad to see you enjoyed your debut - you're a good, clean racer from what I've seen so far :tup:

    If I'm honest, my pole was completely draft-assisted. I was stunned at the gaps from 2nd to about 8th... 1:07.5s everywhere!! :crazy:

    Very sorry everyone. After the first race my internet shut down completely. Phone, cable, internet none of it was working. So sorry Karsten and anyone else I may have screwed up. I've never had this problem before. Needless to say time warner cable is about to hear from a very frustrated customer. Congrats to Rolo and any other winners. Sadly, my championship chances just went out the window but I'll be sure to have this rectified by next week. Very sorry again Karsten. Edit: Apparently they are "replacing equipment in my area" which is causing the problems. Got 20 bucks off my bill and a free dvr out of the deal though.

    Well, our skill levels are different but i didnt notice that one cars might be faster then other. I think they are pretty equal.

    Got to say in testing I was a few secs out on rolo times, with all cars lol
    He knows I'm slower than most but still no give in having a hacked car.

    I know its not over yet but overall i would say this season has been good .

    The car was very challenging and at first was no fun at all but it has been an enjoyable drive after the first 2 rounds .

    I think that the updates have actually improved the car slightly, it handles better than it did previously and it's more predictable. PD got the MR cars wrong to begin with.

    Well done to Rolo and Skeng, you've certainly dominated this season. Apologies for not being able to give you a fight this season, although to be fair, you two are amongst the best drivers, so it's not all that surprising that you won....a strong pairing indeed. :) Congrats.

    Slow progress I'm afraid Rolo. I have another option available which gives me a far slower connection but potentially more reliable....speed isn't everything. ;) It's also going to be more expense. My issue is a lack of money, I'm not exactly well-off, I don't earn much per year so I'm having to do 'man maths'.
