    Got something to say

    Ok so let's talk about this. I know you guys love it when I'm out of a race. I've been wrecked in the 1st, 2nd and 3rd corners in the past and not once has a race ever been stopped on my account. You pricks.

    But that's not my issue. If I wreck somebody else and ruin their race can you at least consider a restart on their behalf?

    Give me a 30 second penalty if you want. Fuck... Make me sit it out. I don't care. If you don't want me in the race I can just take a week off. Whatever is good. I'll make sure I don't do what I did to Casino again anytime soon (I hope) but jesus guys play fair.

    Not once has a crash happened early in a race and I didn't vote to restart. I at least want everybody else in the field to at least have a clean getaway. I know the rules of engagement are different for me and that's fine, if I get wrecked you guys all drive away gleefully but don't screw somebody else for your own benefit IMO.

    I had my mic off but I would have noticed if you all quit the race. I don't even know what happened to be honest, since like I said I wasn't listening. I'm always in favor of a restart so that everyone can at least get through the first couple corners clean -- even you Helli! I don't think the sentiment around us is that we want you out of races, either.

    You SHOULD be required to tune your own cars though, based on that Mini race! :D

    yeah Helli we want you there every week whether you win ever race or crash.....i give you no special treatment nor think of you much different than anyone else.

    If you crash, it is a special event that gets played up a bit b/c it is so rare.

    What i will say is I am surprised of the aggressive nature of everyone on the 1st lap. I try to make the races long enough where you dont need to pass everyone on the 1st lap. watch Del try and pass 2 wide on one of the tightest turn on Camino Viejo extreme was awfully ballsey. It ended ugly. Helli explained his problem with aggressiveness in the 1st race. Lets all try and be patient as if you are truley the fastest car/racer you will most likley finish in the top 3.

    We will repeat the R1 races more so Helli can use his 1.5m car....lol Plus it was fun. dont sell those cars.

    Fuck that, I'm glad we didn't restart. Even with Ca$ino's car all fucked up I didn't finish very far ahead of him..........


    I'm kidding of course, a restart would have been fine. I thought Ca$ino said to just keep racing though.

    I won't be going off the track in the final 1/5 of the lap, I'll tell ya that much! Good job stayin on track there and not following me off due to tunnel vision. I was actually NERVOUS at the thought of winning my first race. That won't happen again, now I'm just pissed I blew it! :D

    im all for restarting if you get wrecked. i think we all just like to bust your balls for being far better than us.

    i thought a few times i would catch you but i just didnt have the speed to catch up. and yes i did say just keep racing. we were already half way through the track, figured it would end soon enough. no big deal. the points dont really matter anymore. im sure we are all here just to have some fun racing with hopes of having an epic battle for position with someone.

    Guys,

    Glad I missed last night. I am in San Diego and had a 6am flight this morning. Another option is to turn off damage to cosmetic and give Hellisan a time gap. I am sure he will show you all some good rubin racing moves. My personal favorite is to literally drive on some ones rear bummer. Better break when I do or your off the track. LOL

    No kidding Mitch. You have an interesting way of driving corner 1 of a 6 lap race like it is the last turn on the last lap. If you're faster, set up your pass. We race these races because we don't want to have to deal with the type of racing that goes on in the lobbies, i.e. setting up passes, giving room, etc.

    Not trying to attack you or anything, I like racing with you and harbor no ill-will. It is my opinion that you are often too aggressive too early. You've spun me a couple times in the limited amount of races that we've had together early in the race. It is for fun, nothing is on the line, and to me, that isn't that fun.

    Yeah Del and I were both disappointed in certain decisions we made. Me running through Casino on lap 1 of a four lap Le Mans race was just unacceptable.

    He felt that a mixup with Bondzai was his fault.

    We are not normally like that. I think it might have been that neither of us had raced in awhile or whatever but that's not typically how we operate. That's why I was so frustrated was Casino driving with a fucked up car for four laps was totally unfair to him.

    Here's the thing that I totally understand about restarts is that it's like...well where do you draw the line. This wasn't the first couple of corners and it wasn't something I would typically do so how could you have known. I think that was something rare that I would not normally have done though... ugh.

    dont worry about it helli. i would have let you pass. i looked back and you had hit your nos and were on my ass fast. i was trying to get by bonzai who looked like he was having trouble picking a lane.

    as far as where do we draw the line, i say, as long as its within the first lap, regardless of length of tracks or laps, we restart if the parties involved want to.

    HAHAHAHAHA! I run a lot of my own tunes actually... but yeah for some reason i thought the Mini was a RWD car so when I threw a tune on it without even testing it... that wasn't good. lmao

    Yeah he hit me but I don't think he was doing anything too crazy. We all know I'm hard to get around....see below.


    And this is different from every other race how? (y)

    I think the takeaway here is that Helli is a real dick.

    Yeah Bondzai is hard to get around, one time on Silverstone yesterday he goes off the track. I think Ok if I keep going he's gonna come back on and nail me. He thinks "I better slow down so I don't come back on the track and nail him."

    he slows down. I slow down. I see him slowing down so I start to go. He sees me slow down so he keeps going. Wham.

    We have the right intentions just get crossed up! Just another fun moment in TF racing!!!
