My replay is junk. Not worth recording. If someone else has a decent one to upload i'd be willing to post it to the youtube channel.

I had a strange race that didn't involve pitting. At the start of the race, during the black screen, my wheel rotated all the way to the right. I just figured it was re-centering, but when the race started I was full lock right.

I managed to get that sorted and catch back up to the back of the field by T3, but I got greedy trying to get beside Vig and put him off. I came to a dead stop but we ended up in a 'after you, no, after you' situation, so I rolled on while Vig backed out.

I put it in the sand a few times, but found myself in third late in the race after Vk's trouble. He was able to reel me in with a few laps to go, which means my no pit strategy was not good. I was kind of glad not to finish third. It would have felt dirty. Sad

Anyways, a tough race, but I'm looking forward to the next one.

I have the replay and since I was the host it should be okay, I haven't looked at it though. I already have it as a zip file on my laptop but now I don't know how to upload it. I use photobucket for my pictures but it looks like they only let me upload media files.
Any advice on how to upload?

Upload to google documents, set sharing to 'anyone with the link', post link. Or upload to gamefront and post link.


This was one of those races where crashing less helped a lot.

So how did this one turn out ? Obviously, my race ended on Q lap 1, one big bolt of lightning and a thunderous boom, lights out. Sad At least G44 had company on the sidelines.

rsb, me, vk, not sure after that. Lots of errors to go around, if you had run and simply not died you'd likely have won.

So here's what I don't get. I noticed the braking performance was actually better at 3/1 than it was at 3/2. And by performance I mean shorter stopping distance. I don't know. Guess I'll figure it out at some point.

As with everything, there's a point where more is too much. With 0 ABS at play there's a pretty low threshold for braking sensitivity.

What is likely happing at 3/2 is that extra 1 at the rear is preventing some forward weight transfer under initial braking. Less weight on the fronts under braking means less braking force.

Remember, your brake balance settings is a sensitivity setting that determines the rate the brakes build to their maximum braking force, not an overall strength setting, so a higher number means slightly more force at a lower brake pedal pressure.

If you want better (shorter) braking distance, you want you front brakes to grab harder, sooner, and you really don't want your rear brakes bring the rear down at all.

So why is your name Forgetful again? I mean this reply only makes you look like the smartest person EVER.
