    By the Way... Xbox now has USB Keyboard support. So you can map every single button in the game to a keyboard if you like

    Good to see you racing again Railer... there are some Cool Porsche's available including the #99 Gainsco car and the Endurance versions.
    Spiff said he was going to run a #911 Perhaps he can be your teammate. I know there is like (x5) #911's I would really only like to see (1) #911 on the track. I'm assuming you are running an Endurance 911, since they are cooler to look at.
    Just to specify, I want to keep down duplicate numbers on the track. There's plenty of cars to choose from and numbers. By that same token, if your car number is duplicated on the same car (manf.) with a different livery you can run that alternate livery.

    I'll team up with you chunt if you want, as of right now it only looks like I will miss 3 races this season due to work, all in December. Practice is tough for me though. Don't get a lot of time to practice that is why I am driving the same car in both leagues I am in. Makes it easier.

    On another note, how is the game with more then 8 racers in a lobby. Had issue' s last week trying to get 14 people in a lobby. Half of the racers got disconnected and after about an hour in a 1/2 and 5 time getting disconnected I had had enough and gave up. They were able to get the race off with 7 racers.

    Maybe we should have a preseason test somewhere with everyone signed up to see how the multiplayer behaves?
