Since no-one is saying it.A ha, that's why you caught me so quickly!
Going to be interesting if they last at Brno - different wear characteristics...
Hey - can we put the server and racing start time in the top post. I am old, I can only store so much information these days. Start times for XGN vs. daylight savings doesn't meet the bar to purge "wives phone number" from memory bank

One of the most deserved penalties! Won't be a thread debating this one . Really sorry Wally, not even trying at that stage and just a rookie error - not in control of the car.
Other than that I had a good nights racing, Utes were more fun than expected but the V8s is where the real fun is. Once the brake bias is sorted and a metre or 2 allowance applied in the braking zones they are pretty consistent. Great racing back through the field with the unfair advantage of SS. Was certain I was going to take out Simone at T5 as I went sliding by, lucky one there. From there on it was 100% intensity with Simone and Freezer, had a (passing) moment of empathy for Freezer when he handed 2nd to me going off at T5 on the last lap.

Yeah, we had a few problems which I can't pinpoint yet, potentially simply overloaded with bots/crawlers.
No need to be sorry - fully appreciate the effort required to try and keep these things running and secure.

My bad - I made a last minute hange to Brads skin so messed up the link... this should work (you get what you pay for): https://1drv.ms/u/s!ApPV0K1vl9QdoAD6PgriMgVYgF-W?e=g0fOrp

Advice on videos:
Well it was working, I checked but thanks for the alternate! The YT embed code disappeared off the forum in the last few hours
Weirdness going on with the forum in general over the past 24 hours.

100/100. That hadn't occurred to me, I have an always on system that I could run a Hotlap and testing server on. Only on home NBN myself with a practical speed of 30/20 with not great reliability either, so no good for a race server but should work for the above.
This is what I am thinking, I have enough bits to build up a server far in excess of an EC2 instance that we could use for non"official" testing (hotlaps, CM stuff etc.). Keep the proper stuff where it is.
I've booked some time on Thursday to set it up, I'll send you a PM and we can go from there.
Phil - how much data are we talking about? I'd be happy to look at taking over the host or even hosting locally .... (100/100).

Not very good at it but lockdown boredom motivated me. Unfortunately none of the skins look as good in game for this mod (even the one provided). Above my paygrade.

Should be a good season.
Will be running the bright yellow No. 56 MelloYello Mustang so you will know who to avoid...

Which one did you pre-order?
AORUS Master. I put a massive amount of thought into it.... basically the last 2 motherboards and GPUs have been Gigabyte / AORUS and I've been happy with them so....
I know EVGA are cheaper and seem to be the pick of the bunch for price vs. performance however the list of people trying to get them is extreme.
Have you got one yet?

Perhaps I am having a grumpy day but I am not convinced the 30 series is actually the messiah. A proper stoning may be in order
The massive performance gains leaked are actually related to thermal and power and are not linear with rendering performance. In some scenarios there are impressive performance improvements but in others they are pretty small in scale (e.g. 130fps - 145fps - your not going to notice). I have noted the limited "low" res performance uplift. Might be a case of the cards trying to keep up with the increasing screen density we are expecting these days but I was not really looking to upgrade all my screens to justify the graphics card upgrade.
I think the real benefit will be from fully utilising the capability the "RTX" brings which I don't think is being optimised in the sim racing world. Now might be a perfect time for the West brothers to reappear.
Don't get me wrong, I am still on the pre-order list and will get one to replace the trusty 1080ti.
Not sure yet, got over a month to sort it out
*cough* wreakfest *cough*
Actually, might save that for holiday season
