The correct lap: 145 (for #39)
Cars involved: #10 and #39
The lap/sector/time: All of lap 145, 3h45min into the race
#10 is shown a blue flag to let #39 pass, #39 gets side by side with #10 on the main straight into lap 145 but #10 chooses to defend. This results in a crash in T1, after which #10 still doesn't let #39 by. #39 gets another run at the #10 at the back straight, with #10 defending yet again. #39 only gets past at the end of lap 145, having lost any chance to fight for 4th place.
After a month or 3 of playing the demo, I decided I like LFS enough to buy S2, so now I'm looking for a decent team to join and do some good (league-)races with. I don't have any computer skills which would benefit a team, but I am a clean and decent simracer with loads of past simracing experience, mainly from GPL and N2003. I also intend to create (and share) my own setups as I did with GPL and N2003, so that may be useful.
What kind of team are you looking for: race
Preferred Car/Track: almost anything, I don't like the XRG/XFG though
Average Laptime on Your Preferred Car/Track: Over 5 lap races with the FBM at BGP I'm able to do fairly consistent 1:12's, with a PB of 1:12.48
How Active Are You: almost daily
What Kind of Control do you use: my TM F430 FF recently broke, so nothing at the moment. I'm considering my options but it's probably going to be a Logitech Driving Force GT
Thank you for the useful tips! I know there is a kart/dirtbike shop within a reasonable distance, so I'll try there first thing next morning. Should they be unable to provide me with a sollution, I will macgyver myself a couple of springs (some spare ones would never hurt).
When the pedal's fixed, I'll post what I did, so hopefully other people can also benefit from the info.
Yesterday one of the throttle return springs on my TM F430 FFB pedals broke. Since the warrantee-period is over, I instantly grabbed a screwdriver and started dismantling the pedals. I found out one spring is completely broken, and the other is already cracking (in the same place).
This morning I went to several DIY-shops, bicycle-shops and car-shops but none could provide me with new springs of similar/equal shape and size. Now I e-mailed Thrustmaster to ask what's possible, but to be honoust I'm looking to get the pedal fixed before this weekend, because I was planning on competing in a league-event next Sunday.
Soon-to-be-S2-licensed new player here Just wanted to say 'hi', and maybe I'll get to meet some of you on the track! I'm planning to start competing in a league soon.
Oh yeah, some background info on me: I'm 24 y/o. I like cars, bikes, cigars and scotch, and I'm able to twist the top segment of my thumb about 90 degrees backwards. Not that the last bit matters, but it makes the post longer.
