I've got something that afternoon with a friend in from out of town, but I should be back in the evening, so I'm a probably.

Starts a bit early for me, but I'll see what I can do. I like the car class.

8 PM CST? I can do this.

Pencil me in for one of those sweet "13th and below" spots. :up: :up:

That look like fun, but is a touch late for me I'm afraid gents. Maybe some Friday/weekend ones in the future?

I think that time slot is tough for others surveyed (https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1yyQYw3Xjs2GBUmBa_pyE-wymRGCEgh-C6W-XKM8M4TI/viewanalytics), but we can definitely try.

Ah, I must have missed that. Apologies.

No problem, a lot of people did :) As long as the game has legs (which will be tough with the Destiny juggernaut), it'll get figured out. I already have a couple of ideas for the next series or two.

I know this is a Toybaru-happy forum, but at least one person will be rocking the IDx :D

At least in testing around Lime Rock, the three are pretty evenly matched. My best laps were about .1 second apart.

Aw hell, this is tonight, isn't it? I should be done with my SCCA meeting in plenty of time. Might even get a few GRM guys to join in.

October 14th, 2015, 05:29 AM
Can I just start at the back, so I don't get in anyone's way?

edit: never mind, looks like I may not be able to make it anyway. :|

October 14th, 2015, 08:48 AM
Don't you dare back out. I need someone to beat. :P

October 14th, 2015, 11:55 AM
I'll see what I can do. ;)

October 14th, 2015, 04:53 PM
I'm out -- my son is having a (very polite) meltdown tonight. #shrug :)

I'll try to catch the next one!

Just so you guys know, my headset is completely fucked, so that's why I'm not talking at all. I can't hear anything out of it. Plus I have to plug it into my controller, which sometimes causes my wheel not to work :/

I picked the Subaru almost entirely because it was LHD and the right handers were messing with my head. Sorry, racerfink, for the bump in the first race - I had no chat or audio and also thought that I'd gotten past you before going into the corner, but found out way too late that you were still there.

Had weird XBL problems the whole time - I could see the "drivers around me" display just fine, but over the actual cars the names were blank. They were also blank in the results screen. All except for Freude, he showed up for some reason. Good thing I'm paying for this.

Probably ahd something to do with me joining late.

Good racing guys! Though we need more mediocre folks so I don't feel so lonely while the fast group and the slow group bunch up ;)

Oh, also, my first race at Long Beach, my pedals weren't working, so I had to restart my wheel. Good thing I started at the back!

Consistency! :|

You are still faster than me, J -- I'd never seen you. ;)
