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.
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...

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
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
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?
I'm imagining a duct tape mankini
Also there with you guys. In this cold weather I've been wearing socks though.
My work around for now
I so need a cockpit and triple monitor setup! Looks awesome, can see so much more.
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??
these are on sale http://www.digoptions.com.au/trak-racer-rs8-mach-iii-stainless-steel-premium-gaanother table or something in for the keyboard and mouse.
Good point, pitstops require the mouse too

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...
