Just remembered I have work offsite meeting/free bar on Thursday afternoon, so depending on how long the bar is free, I may miss this week's race.

Still laughing out loud...

I would recommend the Soniq over any other cheaper brand. They are made in Melbourne and are an Australian company. JB is the only place that is permitted to sell them so haggling a cheaper price is harder but not impossible.

The picture quality is as good as any of the other cheaper brands but the thing I like most about them, they will play any file type. They have a USB port, just plug an external hardrive in it and it will play 'All' file types.

Sometimes when playing files and depending on what codec is used, the TV will sometimes not recognize the proper resolution, but this is easily fixed with a few clicks on the Remote Control. Nothing hard.

For the price the Soniq's are very good value in my opinion. ;)

Thanks for that, think I'm sold on the 48" Soniq. Seems good for 500 bucks, and I've read sometimes they go on sale for 400. I found a thread with recommended settings to get it looks good, as apparently the stock settings are a bit pants. Only has optical audio out so gonna need an optical to RCA adapter for my wireless headphones, but I see them on eBay for about 13 bucks.

Just gotta wait until next month as because we don't "need" the new TV, it's coming out of my own spending budget which is 100 bucks a month...  ;D

Hah no worries Stan, I braked a tad early due to braking late the previous lap and nearly going off, saw you steaming up behind me just as I was going for the apex. Tried to adjust my line but didn't work  ;D

Race 1 did a Rolz, got my best qually lap (10th) then quit instead of pits, then forgot to load my setup and started a the back. Avoided the accident at turn 1 a couple of laps in then held my position to the end.

Race 2 started on pole, crap start, lost a couple of positions, then lost a couple more due to messing up my line, then the goat killer must have got confused and mistook me for a goat...

I liked the change of pace from the last season, but like others have said if you fall behind would be hard to catch up. Also that I was able to fend Wally off for so long just seemed wrong.

Quote of the night goes to Gratulin; I was laughing so hard I nearly crashed off the track  :o

Good stuff Wally. I assume any kind of notification on players would be a bit difficult because you have to query each server to get a player list? Maybe could have the option for the user to shortlist servers they want player notifications for, that way could just do all XGN/Marty servers etc.

I race in nothing but socks and duct tape.  Better aero.
Just out of curiosity, where/how do you wear the duct tape? 
And; isn't it uncomfortable to take off?

I'm imagining a duct tape mankini

I think maybe warning on 3rd corner if shown blue flag to same car with a thing like flash the flag 2 corners later if they still dont give up the spot a drive through.

It needs to be based on distance between the cars. The blue flag appears when the car behind is quite a distance back and can sometimes take a lap before they close the gap. I wait until the car is close to me then wait for the next straight where I can just ease off the thottle. I guess you've never been lapped Marty??  ;)

Blue flag means you need to try and wreck the overtaking car right? And I get more points if it's Marty?

So much grip, so much slidey slidey, so much fun, until you take it too far...  ;D

I may miss the November ones due to new baby arrival, then most likely won't be able to finish a race for the next year or so...  ;D

Nice, looks like it could be fun. You own one Rob, or just driven them?
