If your wheel has a d-pad, you can bring up the pit menu at any time by pressing any direction.

I'm not sure if you meant this, but it took only a second or so to fix all my body damage from T1, and I had Front Wing, Rear wing and the left side all red

Damn, I did not know that. I've been waiting till I hit pit road and the menu comes up. Last night I negotiated the entry and was basically in my pit so I missed the opportunity to fix damage. I've got a Driving Force GT so I have a d-pad......what a dumbass.  lol
Thanks mate.

I'm not sure if I actually managed to pass anyone on track, but ended up in 11th and made up nearly 2 secs on my previous best practice times.
You definitely passed me when I was off track!

LOL, yeah I don't count them Wally.

I had a most enjoyable night. I was about 5 seconds off the pace which was a little frustrating, but there were enough of us in that boat so I wasn't feeling lonely. I didn't hit anyone (of my own doing), and didn't make any big mistakes.  wooohooo!!!

Unfortunately I tagged someone at the start from the Seanus/Keith incident which caused moderate damage to my front wing. I'm not sure if that really compromised my race or enhanced it, and I didn't get a chance to find out at the pitstop because I was in my pit before I could even look at getting the wing fixed.

I really like these cars, but I'm not driving very well. Fun though...when I'm not making mistakes and damaging my car.

I got a decent start with everybody else, moderately went into the back of Keith and damaged my front wing on the first lap. It made the 30 laps to my scheduled pitstop a long drive. Kept tooling around, made a couple of mistakes and finished 14th (I think).
Couple of apologies.

Keith, sorry for whacking you. I'm glad you kept it under control.
kcender, sorry for getting in your way when you were passing me the first time. I'm not running virtual mirrors, and got caught out with you catching me.

See ya all next week.

Try downloading it again. sometimes the file is incomplete, it's happened to me a couple of times in the past
















I have had a couple of tries at doing the patch, but when ui go to unzip the file (Winzip)
 I select, select all and extract and it says Win Zip Encountered a problem during the operation. Any ideas for the
inept computer owner. ;D

Embassy Hill #22 please

I thought I'd be in for some good mid field racing but got punted off at the first corner, no worries all good.

That was me, sorry again Bueller. The only excuse I can offer is that I haven't done much racing since October last year and I screwed up my first lap braking.

I was annoyingly slow, and any change I made caused me to go slower. After I punted Bueller I drove pretty poorly till I decided I was too much of a menace and had no real interest in continuing. I hope it was a practice race thing because I wasn't having much fun. Normally I can cruise around trying to improve my lap times even if I'm not having battles.

Pretty sure I will drive this season so please sign me up Wally.

I intended to have a crack tonight but didn't get my shit done early enough.

Thanks Doobs :)
I don't mind people taking it seriously - in fact, I like it.

I do too Wally, until it gets to point where it gets vocal during a race because someone makes a mistake. That really harshes my buzz, even it's not aimed at me or involving me in any way other than having to hear it. :)

Yes, it is awesome. It should definitely be a Thursday season, and probably a Tuesday one, but you know, Sheep Stations.
An open wheeler Tuesday season is on the cards, so keep this one bookmarked.

Woohooo, I hope you don't find any issues with it. BTW the "Sheep Stations" was not a comment directed at you, but some attitudes that appear every now and then that suck a bit of the fun out. Don't want you to get the wrong idea about what I think of the job you do. You're ace Wally.

I'm on cable. I have no wish for NBN to come to me  :o
At least the rollout of NBN on HFC has been put on hold  ;D

Same here, although I may get better upload, my download would suffer. My ping has gone into double figures in the last twelve months so I'm guessing that would stay about the same.

I doubt I'll race again this season. I had a lap of it yesterday and not real impressed. I might give it another couple of laps and try it by itself rather than after some laps in the F12004. It was horrible in comparison.

Cheers
Darren

I had fun for a while, but after thinking I was doing alright considering I haven't had a drive since October, I fell apart and everything went to shit.  :)
Still had a bit of fun, so thanks for the run.

Cheers
Darren
