    @bjl23 That Elan is looking schweeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeet! - Though the A pillars and windscreen surround look ridiculously fragile! Pure Colin "Mr less-weight" Chapman!

    107 hours spent so far, the body needed a lot of work.

    Nice no-tune time.

    Man, you are a fast worker! - that looks like about 500 Fifth element hours!

    @CorbinDallas , if you scroll down page one, past this rounds race instructions, you will eventually get to the "winners" post. Under the Invitational section you can see all the nicknames people often use here.

    Yes, Slybynight, your right. I remember my first race was in that Mazda around BrandsHatch when I did a very slow 2.19...., now am down to 1.55.699 - a testiment to my hard work

    TMDC is unnerving. My instinct is still to countersteer, but that only leads to embarrassment here if it's anything bigger. The left-to-ascent turn... I don't think I did one good entry & exit there today. No bonus.

    So, a Human among us, that's cool. :tup:

    First of all i want to welcome our new member @CorbinDallas and the Fifth element that bring him to our company .
    As for me all these days was a bit of F... with a touch of F.... and some F.... just for spare use.
    Just did an hour ago 3 races for school ,am uploading the most successful and thats all.
    If time left tomorrow i might try a something else but definitely all this week was waisted in terms of playing.
    Am not in a good shape for various reasons but i hope for better days unless Merfy's law continue to affect me .
    Looking forward for better days .


    @skeagracing am almost about to loose this class ,if it wasn't today , tomorrow it will be to late.

    I hope to get some time on Laguna tomorrow. - I have culinary obligations for most of the day, so it may come down to the wire......



    At which point Boogieman will stride over said wire.

    I had a chance to choose an event this morning ,so i pick up the no tune .
    After couple of laps of experiments ,i choose Active steering off cause it proved more helpful than when was at Mid or Strong .
    I set BB 6-8 and did 4 races
    Don't know if was helpful that i did late night yesterday the class lesson but it worked.
    Leaving aside first run the results are following like this.

    IMG_20210131_122214.jpg

    And here a vid with my first lap only cause judjing from the 12 hours needed to upload a 9.40 vid for school ,the 5.10 minutes will take more than 6 hours :crazy:
    Second lap was identical anyway .


    Pleasing my fashion manager who spend an hour for it early last week ,here is my outfit for school and the round.

    PS
    Don't know if I'll find " room " to help my Dallas see California but if i did I'll let you know no matter the outcome is .

    If you wait till the last minute to send me your school video it will delay the post of the results. Secondly the school runs for two weeks so I do not understand last minute videos for the school!!

    Guys: Here is my attempt at the Toyota Meet Dallas Invitational Event. Is nothing to write home about, but I gave it my best shot. Just could not string a perfect race together.

    1000th post from me here

    First I wanted to thank to Hugh @RMan72 for not showing up this round.

    Second Bryce @bjl23 can you please not steal my Invitational win, I posted 1.29.8 time on Laguna Seca together with tune on post #8599

    Third Babis @smoothbore12 Tommy Kaira actually looks that good that I downloaded a pic. Also I watched your Silverstone lap, you'd do faster with no Traction Control

    To make my 1000th post have some worth I wanted to inform all of you that if everything goes well, Tinkerbell will become a dad before summer 2021 ends :)

    Hey!! Many congratulations @nostradavor2 . I'd better set my mind to beating you in the next few months - because I predict you will be taking a break from the Hub in the summer!

    You'll be back.


    In about 18 years!

    PS Your first nappy makes the racing school seem easy!

    NEW ROUND IS OPEN

    NOTE : please try and send your races to skeagracing early as possible and not last minute as it makes it very hard for him to get time to watch your race.

    Thanks

    Speaking of SKEAGS RACING SCHOOL, 50 classes, congrats mate.
