    Mic-keg is how its pronounced. You guys can call me Parker if you like. I have a habit of adopting codenames in my racing clubs. Example; tjiger enough said lol

    These were some of the closest races I've ever been involved with. So kudos to Mckeag53 for holding me off in the last 100th of a second at Daytona. I still have an elevated heart rate from that ending!

    As far as pronouncing the names correct, don't feel bad; "tarkus1" is actually supposed to be pronounced "super racer" so feel free to call me that any time lol. But on a serious note, I did hear lots of Mckegans thrown out there and had to wonder where the extra consonants came from.

    That was some great racing though and I'm already looking forward to the Event next week.

    This just in from Racetime Corporate:
    There have been numerous cases where drivers have been arbitrarily booted from the system. Regardless of the cause, the host (me) is increasing the internet service substantially. Whether or not this will make any difference for what we do is unknown to me and my limited knowledge but it's certainly a nice step.

    Hey, found this thread and was wondering if there's still some room for an online newbie.

    Ok, will do it later today when I get home.

    Will read the whole thing again to try to not ask too many questions.
    No headsets still ok, though?

    See you on the track!

    There's always room for more people. Please send Tarkus1 a FR on the PSN. Then check out our club page in the club section. Spinning Arrows Club for info on our Thursday events. This week will be centered around our bi-monthly Enduro but, we also have Casual PP Thursdays every other week. https://www.gtplanet.net/forum/threads/8pm-est-thursday-night-spinning-arrows-club.305749/
    Headsets are not required but, is helpful. Stock.

    I have a black shelby gt500 ready to race....but i have to ask quick, are spoilers allowed? cause the 570pp seemed pretty low for having 700hp and 1720kg but anyways my lap time was pretty consistant around 1:24 or 1:25 although my quickest time was a 1:23:8XX what is everyone else running before we get to the track?

    With my limited practice time I did manage to squeak out a 1:24XX. Although I do imagine that with about 40 laps of racing my time will decrease a bit though. As far as spoilers, you're free to add what you like as long as you stay within the limitations previously listed. My first go at it I had the flat floors mounted which meant I had to decrease my power limit substantially. Sure the car handled great but really suffered in the top end. I think JJG12345 can attest to that one.

    In case anyone is reading this and wondering, we are still open for business. We are still looking for decent drivers from all over the globe looking to have a decent time with decent people running fairly casual, clean races.

    That's one of the best things about this club. You can just show up when it works best for you. There's no commitment and we don't expect everyone there all the time. If you make it tomorrow night, great! If not, hopefully you can make it the following week or really just any time you like.

    Hi Lincoln,
    Of course you're welcome to come in and as long as the races stay clean you'll be welcome to stay as long as you like. Just send me an FR and show up whenever you like. Check out the post above, number 179.
