    I'm not a doctor, but how do you have triple points with last place getting 2, 7th getting 4, 5th getting 8?

    was 5th place getting 2.666666666666 (repeating of course) before?

    and isn't triple of 0 still 0?

    its 4X the normal points. 5th place used to get 2 points...now they get 8 points.

    I am awarding points also for people that actually finish the race also.....6, 7, and 8th.

    I'm gonna look at that and factor in the length of the pit stop, how long it typically takes to get by somebody, etc. in estimating the drive-offs. I'll look at it tonight. This should be a lot of fun, I want 8 ppl in the room though.

    There are no car restrictions when we race in B Class (Hence why we race in B class so often, there are many cars that can be made dangerous).

    Go to free play, hot lap, etc. and look at the leaderboards (y)

    Stop being a baby, we can't pander to you the entire time you play this game :D

    Sure you can. Pander as much as you want!

    Blaza I was doing some looking and it seems the Audi S5 is the big swinging dick for the 'ring.

    Some guys are also using a Diablo SV (no idea what that is). Del has one of the best scores among us rocking a Fairlady Z. The Evo 9 also seems to have some good scores.

    8 minutes flat on a clean lap is pretty damn fast. Anywhere from 8:15-8:30 is a good time. Anything slower than that means that you likely went off course big time, which is easy for how innocent some of the turns look. Very tough place to pass that is for sure -- you really have to line someone up coming off a turn onto a straight to get it done.

    Here are some informational guidelines that I'd like everybody to follow:

    First is the launch times.

    When the race starts, the only person that gets to be holding their throttle is Blaza. Everybody else stays in the starting position. We will be lined up in reverse order of true skill rank but these launch times might not correspond perfectly. I have taken everything I can think of into account whether it be driver confidence on the track (Del, lol) to overall competitive nature (Basis) etc. Here is what the overall race time needs to say before you take off:


    Launch Times
    1 Blaza 0:00
    2 Bondzai 0:45
    3 BlyGilmore 1:00
    4 JMS493 2:30
    5 NQR Del 3:00
    6 Casino 3:10
    7 Basis4aday 3:25
    8 Hellisan 4:50


    Special Rules (or guidelines) for this race
    There's really only two.

    1) Since we are staggering the starts in such a pronounced way, there are three basic groups.

    Blaza, Bly, Bondza constitute Group A

    JMS, Del, Casino, Basis constitute Group B

    I constitute Group C

    Damage is limited so as to encourage racing within your group. But if you're Blaza for instance and Del catches you... HE IS CLEARLY FASTER THAN YOU and on the first available safe point you need to let him by.

    Just use your judgement, I suppose. Look at where they started in the race and go at them accordingly. For instance I'm starting more than a minute behind Basis who put up a very good time which I'm sure he will improve on. I could conceivably catch him if... But if I spend a half a lap trying to get by a slower driver then my race is probably shot.

    -----------------------------

    2) Pit stops: i have to pit twice, and I can do so at any time. Everybody else has to pit once after the first lap, I don't care when. make sure that you call that you're in the pits, and when you come out call it again. It dumps you right into traffic.

    Get familiar with the location of the pit stop. it's just after the first big turn, on the right hand side of the track.

    --------------------------------

    3) Have a good time (y)

    ... and for those of you who haven't been doing the longer races on Monday nights, make sure to stretch your fingers and thumbs before we start, go to the bathroom, have a drink of water, etc. cause you're going to be racing for 45 minutes non-stop.
