    Reserve Drivers
    If you have not got a place in the race event before official practice starts, please be in TeamSpeak by 20:15 UTC. Not before 20:20 UTC I will start to invite the reserve (reserve's) drivers into the event, starting at the top of the reserve list and working down depending on available slots.

    A message to all Drivers

    If you run off track, you have to check and see that its clear before you re-enter the track. Do not just keep the gas pinned and pull back on track.
    When entering the track from the pits stay off the racing line until you are up to speed and do not race on your out lap. Let other drivers by in qualifying.
    On re-entering the track stay off the racing line until you are up to race speed and do not block any fast approaching car. Remember, you've made the mistake by going off so let them by cleanly.
    Golden Rule
    1. Be 100% sure it's not your fault and just carry on like nothing happened and take the risk of being banned for 30 days.
    2. Play on the safe side and wait for the affected drivers, knowing 100% sure you will not get a ban.
    Track limits
    1. No more than 2 wheels over the white/yellow line without a complete lift of the gas please if it is safe to do so.
      You will be penalized if you break our rules
    Note: Please use your full real name in teamspeak. Not doing so may result in you being kicked from the server if an admin cannot identify you as a premium member.

    Sorta! A few weeks ago I noticed my brake pedal (Thrustmaster T3pa) was flickering, so instead of cleaning the pedal potentiometer I bought a load cell mod. Unfortunately, when I came to fit the mod I discovered that the mounting bracket that I needed had snapped and I couldn't find a replacement anywhere. In an act of desperation I bought a second hand T3pa unit only to find that it didn't have the aforementioned bracket. In the end I got in touch with Thrustmaster and they sent the bits that I needed. Everything works fine now, but I'm now very tempted to get a set of Fanatec csl elite pedals :)

    I have heard
    I have heard much about these pedals and it is all good :thumbsup: ...I use an adapted set of the T3pa ..basically the brake pedal is the same stiffness as the clutch pedal, crap really but have a very weak leg.

    Glad that you are sorted and if you can afford it, i think the fanatec's are great set for that price band :thumbsup:

    If it enables you to do what you love then that is all that matters.

    i'll have to pull out on this one Craig.:(
    Unfortunatly i'm not feeling 100% well, work is very demanding at the moment
    and the fact that there are only 7 people signing up made me come to this desicion.
    Hope to be back in full force next week.
    Were fun little cars though.:)
