Title: Fun Run 11-10-2018
Post by: Phil.8 on October 03, 2018, 12:02:17 PM
I move house on the 11th and will have my PC and rig all packed up from about the 9th. My internet does not get reconnected until the 16th as the house I am moving to has never had an internet service connected at all, not even adsl, hard to believe in this day and age, but the previous owners were an older couple, but only about 60 so not that old so still weird I reckon  :o  so I will not be about for a week or so, I will put a fun run up after Thursdays race if anyone wants something to do next couple of weeks.
Unless I get a suggestion I will pick something out and if Wally would be so kind to make any changes if needed that would be greatly appreciated.

You'd be surprised at how many people don't have interwebs, Phil, at least I was. :o
I ship solar inverters around Australia, easy enough.
But to collect the faulty I need to email the connote & label to the customer.
About 5% of the time I can't do that. :o
Never expected that when I started this job.

I'll wait to see what others say, but I'm not a fan of Minis in general. We could try the shitbox Lada that Bacchulum found.

Yeah!
I have been driving "shitboxes" all my life and I KNOW the "shitbox Lada" is a good one  ;D ;D 8).

I also drove the Mini and sadly, although the models are excellent, the physics are very ordinary  :'( :'(. When I was 17 years old, I thrashed the Morris 1100s (1275cc engine) Front Wheel Drive, similar to a  Mini Cooper S just a bit heavier, that belonged to my Dad, and have been waiting for a Sim Mini to reflect what these cars, were really like to drive, as yet none have come even close :'( :'(.

The track is excellent though :) :)

I can report re-installing AC, which involve downloading 13Gb, takes around 5 hours if you from rural WA, first world problems I know  ;D

The Lada was a fun car, giving some good pack racing. Rob, DaveO, Roo and I were in a close pack for quite a long way.

Yes was a fun night Wally, I hope I did not annoy anyone with too much Discord activity (first time I had not used a "push to talk" button).

Great track selection Phil and car Mod Bacchulum :) :)

These are good fun, the track is great also. Turned up late and hadn't tested at all but with bacchulums set up (first one on the list) and a couple of laps I was good to go. Got some pretty good lap times after a while and in the last race was punted off early but came back hunting for bacchulum, couldn't get there though.
I think these cars would be cool on bikernikie track and would go close to replicating that video of the Russian shitbox race someone posted, cool stuff thanks guys
