bummer man, you have until the 8th so if you get your energy back let me know.
Please see my original post above yours:O_o: I'm in as long as I don't have days like I've been having. Yesterday and today are ok so fingers crossed. This will be a roller coaster ride:) Great combo:thumbsdown: We did it in the old Porsche 911 2.7 and it was a hoot.

Hi Scott, I keep getting kicked out. I installed v1.1.2 of the track :(

Anybody else has the same behavior ?

P.S. Meanwhile, I'll practice offline...

Hey Scott, I have a race on Thursday I'm preparing for, but I will try to learn this track either tonight or tomorrow and join you guys on Wednesday anyway. I'll let you know if I'm not able to get it done.

I dont recall if I had 1.1.1 or 1.1.2 for the practice server, either way we will be on 1.1.2 tonight

Ok good, although I might skip this one. I have kind of a bad case of left-foot-braking-itis !

I changed my pedal setup to be 2 inches higher on Dec. 23rd and since about Jan. 2nd, my left calf is in a constant state of half-cramp... it's been better today, so I'll see how it goes this evening.

Have fun tonight :)

@scottiedawg66 It looks like there are only 2 of us, or maybe 3 if Bobby is able to run. What do you think? Maybe push it to next week and re-tag everyone to try to get some more signups? It's a super fun car/track setup and very unconventional track layout, I can't imagine people wouldn't enjoy it.

I'm with you @Jivesauce . Because I don't practice anymore, I'm very um-competitive and which would leave you two to battle it out and I know you really need 4-5 guys around the same pace to really race.

Btw Colin, that was a good ballgame between our teams.

See you guys next week. Thanks again @scottiedawg66 for setting things up and hosting:thumbsup: :)

Oh crap, I thought I was signed up but guess I had a senior moment. Oh well, sitting here with Team speak on and no one to talk to:p I even practiced but I was terrible anyway! Let's talk about what we can do for the rest of the year. Always fun to run around with you guys, maybe change of day or just a series of the same type of cars so practice isn't so necessary. Just installed Sol 1.4 and it is quite incredible. I vote for Riverside and some hard to drive Group C cars for the whole year:D Thanks Scott for trying
