Sorry  guys I had a non-computer sunday.  :)
The server just needed a kick is all.  Apache got a bit tired or something.

Ouch.   My condolences.  Would you share what PSU was it?

It's no small task, do you have your windows key or have it tied to a Microshaft account? New mobo drivers downloaded on usb ready to go (chipset, lan, audio). Looking good

I always forget the drivers.  Luckily we've multiple computers in the house, so it's not that big a deal :)

Then an unplanned divebomb at the last corner almost ended up in tears with light contact with Bird, tried give the position back back suspect another driver took advantage of the situation. Sorry mate.

Yeah that surprised me a bit, but luckily did not leave a lasting mark :)  Nevermind, it's racing.  Chit happens.

All I need is to win the lottery tonight and I'll have 2 of these  ::)
Eh, even if you can afford it, it's just not worth it.   
There's buying something nice & expensive and there's wasting money.  This is the latter.

No takers yet . . . !
Tempting . . . .

Actually; Wally said he'll change from the mazda to the shorty!

Simone, you bastard, you still haven't sent me strawberries, and you're pumping cash into Wally's coffer!

but I still can't understand why you felt the need to make that pass on your out lap....

Aaaaah, you thought it was my outlap?  No, you've overtaken me on the straight is all.  I was on a hotlap, too. :)

On my outlap I even leave the track to avoid endangering others coming up on me, I'd never try this shit, trust me.

I had a moment when I caught up to a merc just after T1 (t2? the right hander) on the esses with such a huge speed difference that the only sane option was to go around it.  Since that was the same place I've attempted the overtake in the quali (and failed miserably) it was a hairy moment.   Although my extra speed meant I was past in a blink of an eye, so it was clean and quick, thankfully.

I thought that was pretty neat, my bobble, your approach speed and the only place to overtake in the esses, all conspired to happen at the same time. ;)
Well, thanks for that :)  Yeah that's exactly how I planned it!  :D  8)

Similar to Wally, I've smacked the banked corner relatively early on while going around a merc (that overtook me on the straight).  Same early pit & very long 2nd stint was necessary.   Still, I was able to pull a few 31's in the race, and even had some nice battles in the end. 

The one advantage with the shorty is that blue flags are easy to serve, you just don't do anything on one of the straights  ;)

A huge apology goes to bradC whose quali I've messed up - I had heaps of extra speed and I was fairly confident (wrongly of course) that I can make it, however you seem to have taken a tighter line than usual...anyway, it was bad judgement on my part and apologies again!

where did that 30.1 come from Phil :o

Well last month or 2 I felt I have been off the pace but still felt I was driving ok and after Shayne said he cruised past me last week I got to thinking and I looked at my brakes and I think they may have been slightly on for god knows how long so I added 3% of a dead zone to them and the time appeared, probably coincidence and I am just getting old :) and just got lucky
That's a brilliant way to pull the aliens back into the fold :D

Looks like a ripper event, must have been good fun!

So, single make series from now on Wally?
Multi series can work well, but it takes a bit to balance them out.
