I think I know why... some time ago when we raced here on a Thursday, a few people were getting all sorts of checksum errors, so I removed the track's surfaces file from the server. I've put it back now, and restarted stracker.Didn't like your 1:26.xx anyway

Cheers Wally. Can't find an error message in there.No, I can't see an error there. Do you also have log.txt?

Done a few laps in the Nissan last night and figured the front left tire suffers really badly.If it doesn't show up, it's possible it's crashed with an error. In your AC logs folder, there will be a file called py_log.txt. Next time it doesn't show, can you post that file?

While I'm sure with practice I could go quicker in the Mustang it's horrible to drive so may stick with my trusty Nissan which can actually go around corners.I'm quicker in the Mustang than the Nissan, and I want to stay near the pointy end of the points. So to compete with you and Phil, I'm pinning my hopes on the Stang.

You've got to turn in very early - probably a lot earlier than you think.I know from experience that you need to be careful at Church bend (the very fast right hander at the bottom of the hill):I find it very hard to judge that corner and keep missing the apex

I know from experience that you need to be careful at Church bend (the very fast right hander at the bottom of the hill):
The fast line there, approached at around 200 kph, is to start far left and then cut across early to the left apex, to carry that speed. There are always people who, having brought more speed through Village, try to pass on the inside there. There is not much the car in front can do to pull out of a pass like that, at that speed. So be careful!

E.g. last round at Modena would have worked out like this (ranked by average fastest lap times over the 3 races). So Freezer would have earned least; Rob would have earned most.

It was a lot of fun. I was disappointed at myself in race 2 for doing well, getting up to 3rd, I think, but then getting too close to Rooshooter and touching the grass while backing off, which spun me.

It's based on the averages of your fastest laps. So if you drop out half way through a race, you'll still post a fastest lap for that race, and that will be used. If you only start 2 of 3 races (or don't even complete a lap in one race), your fastest lap times for the two races you did race in will be averaged....from this round, I'll change it so that you don't get money for your finishing position, but by your fastest lap times. In other words, the fastest guy won't earn any cash; the slower guys will get more cash. This way, even if you don't start or finish some races, your cash reserves won't be artificially boosted.So if you dnf a race, you won't cash in? eg if you drop out halfway due to damage? Or is it for dns (did not start) situations?

When you look at the race graphs for Modena, Joe and Freezer were clearly too fast for the field, off in a race of their own. The point of this car dealer is to promote closer racing (with a strategic element). Joe and Freezer both got their cash by having a bad round with DNFs, not by being slow, which is not really the intent. So from this round, I'll change it so that you don't get money for your finishing position, but by your fastest lap times. In other words, the fastest guy won't earn any cash; the slower guys will get more cash. This way, even if you don't start or finish some races, your cash reserves won't be artificially boosted.

And please, I'd like to hear other opinions too. As I said earlier, it's about community standards. I'd like to hear what the community thinks. It's not about taking sides, or blaming the driver, it's about the situation. Should it be a penalty?
« on: March 22, 2019, 08:31:02 AM »
As I've said many times, and everyone should know this by now:
As for your penalty, you dive-bombed at speed down the inside of turn 1 into a group of slow moving cars and hit and spun Killa - a clear penalty of the "hitting someone from the rear" kind.

A couple of videos (best to watch fullscreen):
Bird's-eye view (Bird is a black Nissan, left of track):
In my opinion, it's a racing incident. Like Bird said, he was at full lock, just trying to negotiate the corner after being tapped offline by Joe, and taken by surprise by AB appearing from the left. Was Bird a tiny bit at fault? Probably. Was he driving recklessly enough to cop a penalty? I don't think so.
