    Casual Racers?

    I'm wondering what options are out there for guys that are basically casual racers? I think I'm pretty good at the game and have gotten to driver level 14 I believe...

    What are the options for joining up with you guys? How often are the races? Do we get some time in advance knowing what track and cars will be used so we can set up for it?

    BTW... some awesome paint jobs so far!! (y)

    how good you are wont keep you out of the races but if all the spots are filled for league races, you would probably get bumped due to seniority. most of us have raced together for a long time so one of us would most likely get priority to get a spot. sometimes its first come first serve though.

    and if enough people want to race having 2 rooms is also possible with the top 4 from each room meeting in a final race.

    this is how we used to do things, maybe things have changed. one of the other guys will have a definate answer for you.

    I'd say we're all pretty casual racers. There are different skill levels but I'd define casual as "what will the guy do if you knock them off the track" Most of us would laugh...

    Most of the time.

    I definitely want to race...but truthfully, if I wreck one of the better guys on accident how pissed are you guys gonna be? If you are, then I won't sign up

    LOL ok i'll sign up then. Start me at the back and i'll wait a few seconds before hitting the gas so less chance of taking someone out early.

    but did i read it correctly, if you sign up, you have to race all 4 races? can't do 1 or 2 and then cut out?

    that 200K might buy you 2 cars at the max.....

    yeah to be honest this is the first time anyone ever wanted to sign up for only 1 or 2 races....dont know how to handle it to be honest.

    if we have 2 rooms I don't have a problem with it.

    Ok well all 8 spots are taken anyways so moot point. I would like to race with you guys, but im not going to make it every week. so maybe if you guys have a "fun, not counting in standings" race night, ill be in for that.

    we can run two rooms with heat races, then the top half from each room can move on to the finals...

    seriously, it's no big deal, hell i would like it if we had 32 racers and took the top 2 from each heat into a finals... so the more the merrier.

    yeah juggs your making it out to be more serious and complicated then it is...just jump in. The standings are just a fun way to keep track of how you are doing.

    Helli is going to mostly likely be #1 anyway.......and we all know that....I have more fun racing for 3rd and 4th sometimes rather then first. I cant handle the pressure of someone tailgating me around the track!
