    Are we doing away with automatic pit stops for the AM? I would prefer manual pits, not sure how other AMs feel.

    You're in the #50 Tom.

    I will be out of town on business Monday Tuesday and Wed, but will be back for the race Wednesday Night! So be patient as my responses will be slow.

    If you want to run manual pit stops we can. I will play with the settings to see how it all works. That is only if we run an AM room though.

    @ Michael- Does the password work for public lobby

    Yeah I know I'm working out if town 3hrs away. I'm hoping I get back in time. I should safely be home by 8:00pm I want the race to start on time. The room will be Public with a Password so you should be able to Join in on my GamerTag. If we can get the Qualifying started at 8pm (1am UK time) I'll make Qually 25 mins. I would suggest you try a Pit-Stop Check tire pressures in your Race Strategy. Make sure you have the correct setup applied. I don't really want the race to start any later than 8:30 pm EST 1:30am UK time. If you don't make a lap during Qualifying you can still run in the race. Its a long race so starting position really doesn't benefit you unless you are the leader. Also I've seen the game start people from the Pits, that may be the case if you don't run a lap in Qually.

    Yes, I think after our Test and Tune at Daytona; Manual Pits is the way to go Because the game forces Automatic regardless of your selections.
    ---Allow Automatic Transmission
    ---No Forced Interior View
    ---No Mechanical Failures
    ---Allow Ghosted Vehicles
    ---No Pit Exit Penalty
    ---No Pit Mistakes (Pro/AM)
    We will require Mandatory Pit-Stops in the future. Since it's review-able in the results screen it can be enforced with League Time Penalties.

    We ran a club race today, Public w/ password, and were inundated with random people entering the lobby, unable to race due to oassword, and leaving. This caused repeated lags, and disconnects for one club member. Once we went Private, with listed friends, no problems. We should all have each other on our respective Friends List. It makes Race Night much smoother.

    We can go Private Lobby but you can't join in on a GamerTag if you do that. Which means if don't get in with an invite you're not getting in. It worked for me several times with no Randoms joining. I guess the multiplayer is such a mess it still only works % 1/2 the time.

    Next Question, does the pit strategy work or is it still messed up?
