  1. Still defo more to find!! It's bloody hard to improve though.
  2. Bought this last night but didn't have time to play with the forum ACC race going on. Looking forward to trying it later though and I'll be getting involved with @Valver's time trial challenge
  3. An ok-ish night for me where I was really struggling for pace due to a lack of practice time in the week. It's hard to get too excited about taking the championship lead as it's obvs only due to @SANtoOos and @Erik missing so many races! Honestly, I think this is pretty much all on me. I need to watch the replay as my memory is a little hazy, but I think I'd just made a nice overtake on someone (@winkymaybe?) but then went off in the next corner due to overexcitement! So I wasn't avoiding chaos, just dealing with my own ineptitude. That meant a group of cars all passed me in that moment and I lost the awareness of who was around me. Turned in, felt the bonk and saw a spinning Dutchman in my mirror After that I think I was in 6th on pretty much the same pace as the big group ahead. I think it all went a bit wrong for @winky at some point so I inherited 5th, but I was making too many little mistakes to really mount a challenge to the cars ahead. I then had a big spin towards the end while @Valver (who was a lap down) was right behind me, I just decided to take it easy after that as there wasn't really anything else to race for.
  4. Your import charges were the final straw for me. I feel like I've overspent lately so I've cancelled my pre-order for the CSL DD and the BMW rim. Unfortunately it means I'm stuck with the boost kit that I ordered separately, so I'll put that up on ebay this week. I just really hope that when they announce it, Thrustmaster's DD base is good, comes in at a reasonable price and is compatible with my current rim. If so, I think this'll work out better for me all round.
  5. Yeah, same for me unfortunately. I'm going on holiday that day and it's very likely I'd have been playing a halloween festival with the band if I wasn't.
  6. The classic 200 layout is so much better than Snetterton 300, but it's still not a bad track once you get used to it.
  7. Good night for me and it would've been even better if I hadn't messed up my fuel in race 1. Hate to tell you @EuroVapeSim2, but I let you past after turn 1 as I was aggressively fuel saving at that point, I actually had the engine turned down to 12 (which is warm up lap/safety car setting in the Ferrari) so had absolutely no acceleration out of the corners. Wasn't enough though, had to pit with a lap to go and then almost got final destinationed by @Yannik as I came out the pits! Was able to pass him before the end of the lap though as his Porsche (along with @Count Buffalos Merc) had been well and truly Valvered earlier in the race. In the end 6th wasn't too bad. Race 2 was much better and 2nd is all I can hope for in a world where our resident alien exists. I started 4th, but Meers in front of me was a bit slow away at the start, so I was able to get alongside and sweep round the outside into turn 1 to end up in 2nd. I was a bit nervous a few laps in as @Yannikwas catching me, but his battle with Meers ended his challenge and I was able to fully focus on watching Eric disappearing serenely over the horizon.

    Exactly, it's not the 2000s anymore and arena shows are expensive.

    Nah, the last album was fucking awesome. I'm going to Manchester you miserable fuckers
  10. Loved last night guys, really good racing with you all and was a pretty clean night for me all-in-all. Had a bump with @Erik at the end of the turn 1 incident and also tapped @milko just before making a pass on him but otherwise it was all good. I did particularly enjoy the move on @Meers, although I was worried at the time it was a little aggressive! Everyone seems to be putting the blame at @milko's door for the T1 incident, but it still looks the same as it did at the time to me. @milko is already partially up the inside into the turn and then @Erik sweeps across the track which is where the contact happens. I don't see @milko understeer wide at all and personally in @Erik's position I'd have just taken the outside line, but maybe that's why I don't win anything anymore Honestly not having a go, just interesting to discuss this stuff. One thing I got from last night, I'm so made up with my wheel again. I really think I'm going to cancel my pre-order for the Fanatec CSL-DD and see what Thrustmaster announce in terms of their DD offering. If the touted base is compatible with my rim I'm laughing. Only problem with this is that I ended up ordering the boost kit separately and it's already arrived!! Does anyone need a boost kit?

    UK dates announced for next year in Birmingham, Manchester and London
  12. If those buttons take some force to press, they'd be ideal for ignition/starter. You don't want to be pressing the ignition by accident when you're out on track! My CSL DD has been delayed until 2nd November
  13. Well, it isn't though is it? Don't get your MS branded knickers in a twist!
  14. It's not on the correct machine though.
  15. I'd love to join you guys but I'm doing some recording on Thursday so won't be able to make it
  16. Good, means we might be able to race you a bit!! Aston for Erik from now on, or maybe the Jag?
  17. We can be team mates! I promise I won't sabotage you with a terrible setup later
  18. Olive Kitteridge is 99p today: https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B00B3VE1H8/ref=s9_acsd_al_bw_c2_x_4_t?pf_rd_m=A3P5ROKL5A1OLE&pf_rd_s=merchandised-search-2&pf_rd_r=P6J61TFB4G0N0MFGKFXD&pf_rd_t=101&pf_rd_p=23c6609c-2164-47f6-a0bd-259b5cc83ed6&pf_rd_i=5400977031 Thought I'd give it a go as I really enjoyed the HBO adaption.
