    Let's fill up the grid! You can ask other drivers to practice or race with you by using the tag function of the forum. Just type an @ directly followed by the user name and this person will receive a notification.

    Our racing clubs are foremost meant to gain online experience so please help other drivers out when they have questions about the event, the car, the track, the setup or a combination. This is not a league race, it's not about who wins, it's for some fun, so please join us on TeamSpeak and build a little community spirit! The more fun we make it, the more inclined people will be to join in and make the grids bigger.

    I would just like to remind everyone these club events are just for fun. No matter if you are posting record lap times, or if you are vastly off the pace, how fast or slow you are does not matter. As long as you are able to follow the rules, and be courteous towards other drivers, you have something to contribute as well as something to learn from others. Please don't be discouraged by how well you know the car or track. If you are someone who is normally competing for podiums, but you don't know the track, look at it as a test of your instincts and an opportunity for the slower members to place higher. I realise everyone wants to be competitive, but this results in lower sign ups as people tend to shy away from events they are not as fast in. So please, sign up for events you are slow in as well. This is all about the fun and the learning experience, leagues will come later for all the :alien:'s.

    Priority access
    In case of a large amount of sign-ups premium members are given priority access to enter this event.

    In the EU race today, Xbow had pole, but the 2 through 4 were driving the 2-11....but again they all were 2s faster than I was :)
  11. Xbow is more stable and predictable but, I suspect the 211 can be faster with the right setup. This track may prove to be the equalizer though.

    Still haven't ran a single lap on this track. Ever. So this one should be interesting.
  13. The 2-11 is fast, but the tires take a beating from what I've tried so far. The xbow is quick and stable and you don't have to stress the tires as much.

    @Saleem Hodge posted in the password discussion, but will post here also. The server is setup for the 2-11 only, and it has booking ending at 10pm.

    Sorry for screwing up the server. Didn't have much time today to double check it. Almost home but still about 15 minutes away really long day. Let me know how you like the combo. I was really looking forward to it.

  18. I was enjoying it, until my wonderful ISP decided, "Mmmm... No, we're just going to drop your packets for a few minutes. Sorry. Not sorry."

    I was hopeful going into the race...but the problem was doing all of my practicing on an optimal track. I was doing some consistent 1:38 laps, but got nowhere near that during the race. I think this car/track combo should be burned :)

    I thought the same thing at first, but once the track rubbered in it actually wasn't such a bad combination, even for someone like me who basically had no idea of the car and the track for 75% of the event :p

    We should really try a dusty track one day in one of these events just for the hell of it hahaha.
