I just Know, that I dont want to Know about everyones affairs. Just matters the race results and everything realted to that.

As in real life Boo boo happens and drivers have to deal with this, we are playing a game that most of us takes seriously, but please calm down, be profesionals and lets keep the field full of action.

My GT race was ok. Apart from being scared shitless by close calls from some serious lag spikes. I fell back to 13th outta 14 and decided to keep it as clean as i can and pit early and hope i make u time later. I think i did ok. Great race fellas. See Y'all next weekend on Sebring

PostSubject: times are good for racers   Mon Feb 17, 2014 9:45 am

There was a time many years ago when Science and I were sitting in a room with 2 Playstation's linked together trying to race each other with AI traffic. It didn't work very well, but at the time it was great. I remember saying, someday there will be technology that allows us to race each other from our own houses, and maybe even other racers from their houses as well.

Look where we are now. Yes, some of us had a bad race. But its better than running some hotwheels down an orange track (although that can be pretty good too).

These are the Good Ole Days...

Your lag was ok-ish. I was trying not to get hit by a spike, and that's why i pulled out going into the chicane. Dude if that's how my racing will be all season, close with you, I welcome it. I was awesome.

Matt kinda gave me his spot though. Thnx Matt

I better not get a peenalty for that because I checked my pi every damn day and to not have it changed until directly before or after qualifying is complete bogus when there was an entire month to change it!

Nice pics man, that reminds me:

Respect to Sainted for the GTLM race, had a few guys unable to connect in each lobby and was on his own to resolve it all which I know isn't an easy job, for that he's Cool in my books.

So true. I'd do the same with cuda500. I'd bring my PS2 to his house link them to 2 TV"s, and for the first time ever we each had a whole screen to ourselves instead of the split screen, with GT2.  But even then I never thought it could be done remotely. lol

Not sure why MR warspit has to make a personal conversation public.  Maybe a need to feel like he retorted big and bad by calling me childish. ooooohhhh. Lol.  Funny how a few other racers said you were in a completely different position as they went by. Then as I come upon your car it's perfectly lined up to drive directly into my path as I enter the turn.  Very very questionable.

Secondly, I am admin, yep.  I am also a racer. I want to do well just like the next guy. You taking me out pissed me off. Deal with it.

Finally, I don't need anything. Much less any more crap from you. If you want to take your friends and go home then do it. If your "friends" are followers like that then that is their choice.  I provide a place to race and have fun via Forza. You suck the fun out of things like a porn queen sucks cream out of....well you know what I am sayin.  There have been only maybe 2 or 3 people in over 3 years that I have had major problems with.  You want deletion. Nah huh. Just consider yourself retired.

Good race weekend for myself all in all.

GTLM race started with a hiccup at the start as our class paced to the line a miscommunication on the grid caused a hectic start for most drivers. By the time we arrived in turn 1 most of the cars were back in their places and the race proceeded as planned. F4H Diablo srarted off with A demanding lead on myself and another driver closed in from behind. (HTC? TCH), sorry, don't remember the name). With full downforce on my panoz I was a sitting duck in the straights and really had to drive hard through the infield but the car felt beautiful so this was not an issue.
I lengthened the gap to 3rd and eventually both of these drivers lagged out leaving me with A comfortable lead. There were a few scary moments with less than patient DP/PC cars and laggy lapped GTLM cars but all in all it was a good race and proud victory for the FORZA RACERS UNION / Arizona Iced Tea #84 Panoz Esperante. (Pending Noone in the B room had a faster time)

GT race really surprised me to have qualified on pole as I saw much faster times from everyone in practice. Nevertheless the race started off very promising as I ran at everyone else's normal pace but did it consistently early. This opened a considerable gap to second before clipping a curb in turn (3-4?) And touching my right side mirror to the track, turning hard right and pulling waaaay off track but avoiding a rollover. This diminished my gap by at least 1/2-3/4. Unlucky for me, by this point MTB Vader had made his way to 2nd and found his rhythm. He steadily closed the gap from 1300 ft to under 200 feet in the 2nd half of the race. Over the last 10 laps I managed to get my head in the game and pull off 1 or 2 good laps which allowed me to hold off the advancement just enough to take the victory in the HAWK Performance Brakes, VTG tuning #84 Mine's Skyline.

I want to give a special thank you to my strongest competitor in GT this week, MTB Vader, for taking time out to collaborate with me on tuning this skyline. Without his help I likely would have rolled over several times and would not have performed to this potential. I would also like to thank ItsJustBe for his time and effort put into the intlitial tuning process with me as well. I appreciate what you guys are willing to do for me.

All good on the start, there was miscommunication due to lag, but the straight was going to fix everything anyway  lol! 

I did finish the 50 laps and sent the replay to pred along with a photo of my finishing time. Hopefully that keeps me 1st or 2nd. This week, get your tune sorted for the Panoz haha, I know you're quicker than you were this week.

@Diablo oh no!!! Don't tell me that!! I was hoping you didn't finish haha. You will definitely be #1 or #2 this week as long as Noone in B room ran crazy fast. Do u know your final time? And what lap you lagged out on?
(I believe you also need a picture of your car in the pits unless you pitted before the lag out....? I could be wrong on that tho.)

I lagged on 31, but I pitted on Lap 20... I didn't see the picture part, I'll have to go do that.

My final time was 1h 12m 11s. So, +10 being multiclass and +19 seconds because of the lagout? something like that.

Feel pretty embarrassed to have the two major mistakes I made in the ST race. Hope I can pull my donkey together and get a better damage free performance at Sebring for the team.
Thanks Sainted and Manuel for allowing me plenty of space to pass, felt like I was in real hot pursuit of the rest of the field but I pushed a little too hard.

@ Diablo. I believe you do not need to have a picture of the pit unless you pitted while in your own room. I don't think you have a +10 but I could be wrong
