    I had the same problem with Team Speak and Crew Chief being way too low. What I've done was lowered the game's volume using the Volume Mixer (right clicking the speaker icon on my task bar). Then I had to lower Crew Chief to about half of the volume of Team Speak, so now TS the loudest, then Crew Chief followed by the games sounds. Wearing headphones, I can make sure that the game sounds are comfortable, and the chat and crew chief aren't loud booming voices of God. Too me, lowering the volume works better than trying to boost Crew Chief to 11 and then taking Team Speak to 12.

    I am surprised he didn't say, "That damn Otis! He's off again". :laugh:

    This will be a lesson in why not to mess with success. By the end of the race I had about 26 liters of fuel left, so I figured I would lighten the load for race #2. I took 20 liters, even though I though I could go lighter...

    The race started out fine, and the car felt quicker but it no longer felt settled on any of the turns. I did my best to be competitive while dealing with the different feel, but I was not able to keep it up for the whole 2nd race. Once I lost it, I couldn't calm down enough to deal with going from mid pack to last. Then it was mistake, after mistake. Not my best performance, but I did learn to like the car before I screwed it up. :cry:

    Well...

    Kinda hard to start the race on pole and screw it up as badly as I did. I have found that there are times when I just know no matter how hard I try I am gonna screw it up. In race 1 Bock and I were having a good battle. About four or five laps in I was heading into the second hairpin and just knew things were not going to end well coming out. I even tried modulating the go-fast pedal but ended up looping it.

    I think I get nutted up when I get that "Lovin'Feelin'" and make it worse, thus causing the incident I foresee...

    A few laps later I had another off trying to charge back up the field and that kinda screwed it up for me.

    Second race I started 7 and was moving up until I ran into a roadBock in the last complex. Bock had an off and we tangled when he came back on track. It was racing, so no issues, and I did not lose much time. I managed to make it up to fourth and on the front straight Efrain slowed and we tangled. I sent him off and slowed but he went deep into the infield.

    Efrain: My bad. Apologies.

    Fun times though. The cars do not handle like the skippies in iChasing but they have a charm of their own.

    No problem Greg it was a racing incident. I was under pressure you were getting closer and closer at every turn but at the end we all had fun
