    Is this the Supra from our own garage or from the racing class in arcade with 460 odd hp?

    Yeah, I hear that. :irked: Ok Ron, watch out, me and Mischa got our sights on you. ;)
     
  13. You got my Pm by the way, Rob?

    You've got one advantage though. You know the times from everyone, but we don't know your time:mischievous:

    Well, I wont know any times until all the racers have submitted them on the deadline date. Of course, if there are some early submissions, then yes, I will know there times. :)

    I race as hard as I can race, if there are faster times than mine, then so be it. Knowing the times really doesnt help me out at all. :)

    Hey PR! Don't worry man, just keep at it, and remember, everyone in here is free to offer advice about the race. We should all be helping eachother to improve. :)
    Remember, your only racing against others in your class. :)

    Why only T2? I think the longer the track the better, because then the feild will be scattered more.

    T2's will offer a estimate as to how you are doing against the other racers but not giving away your total time.

    Why would you punch a lid? Did it punch you?

    I just pulled a T2 time of 33.895 a few minutes ago. That almost was my best lap cuz at the T2 checkpoint i was 1.1secs ahead of my ghost but I made a few mistakes and I ended up losing that lead and finishing .2secs behind my ghost at the end of that lap. Kinda disappointing. :( Oh well.
