Regarding people not turning up, I was thinking what can be done... very little I suppose.
Except NDR have one trick;
They organise so many different leagues, they could state that a no-show would affect a racers application to future leagues. Why give the place to someone who signs up early, but has previously not turned up elsewhere without notice?
After nearly 6 years enjoying my previous Alfa GTV, I've had to upgrade as I have an addition to the family on the way
I've bought an Alfa Romeo GT. Not much slower than the GTV even though it's a diesel, but a lot more comfortable.
Get the Alfa!
(from a man with an Alfa, loved it for 6 years and about to buy another Alfa)
The cars are great, it's just the dealerships caused most of the bad impressions for people. If you find a good dealership / independant garage then you're laughing.
I recently got Flight Simulator X. I was forever checking eBay for a cheap deal, but I wanted the deluxe version for the extra aircraft. Then I found CEX (second had shop, I've bought a couple of mobiles from them before) had the Gold version (deluxe + acceleration) for the same price as the basic version £15

I've tried and failed to configure my G25 pedals as a rudder, since the clutch and accel pedals have similar stiffness. Anyone else been successfull with this?
An interesting penalty in past seasons of Road Sport Cup was 'let the driver by, or face being placed behind them in the finishing results'. So if the victim didn't finish, the one who caused the accident is also unplaced.
Bit harsher than +10 seconds
This is quite a change to the RSC under the new guardians.
I agree with what Falke said regarding mixing the two series with gaps.
I'm not familiar with previous seasons of the TBOC, but the RSC was always run on a Thursday evening. I'm not so easily available on Saturdays, which is a pity as I've taken part in all 4 previous RSC seasons
(but at least RAC+FZ5 league racing returns)
Forgive me if I've missed some important reason for double file, but wouldn't rolling starts be easier with single file instead? If you're only watching the car in front (instead of also having to watch to the side) then your position is more defined. Still have staggering, but not overlap maybe.
I don't have a solution for you why traction control doesn't work, but wanted to mention that all but 1 car (RAC) now don't have a shiftlight in the recent Z25 patch.
My unit has been working for years, but now the shiftlight does not work. I might have to change it's function to something like low fuel.
Welcome back Dave, nice to see you're still OK.
Seeing you brings back memories of old Boomerang Rapido days, which then turned into dEmporium Racing (later stopped). A few of those drivers then formed multi-sim RSC Motorsports (also stopped, am I jinxed?)
Since found a nice family of friends with T7R
The G27 is an evolutionary improvement over the G25 (got one), but not worth it for the price differences you found between them.
If you're buying a new PC, I'd say nearly all are capable of running LFS, you just need to invest a bit more if you're planning on super resolution. You might consider triple monitors, which LFS is about to support in next official patch.
And how many servers at the moment use anything but bright daylight and no wind?
If dynamic weather and lighting came along, I fear it would be a brief experience before most return back to hotlap conditions.
Guinness Bitter ! (Green can)
God I miss that stuff, very easy drinking and makes a great session beer (all night). I can't find any nowadays, I think it's not imported to UK very much, pity.
Caffreys used to be quality but then they changed the recipe to make it weaker and not as strong tasting.
The transformer must match the voltage required by the G25 - Check
The transformer must be able to provide the current required by the G25 which is 1.75A
A transformer that can provide more will be suitable, the current drawn is dictated by the connected equipment, it will pull as much as it needs. So this larger transformer will run cooler and therefore maybe last longer.
(day job = transformer designer )
It doesn't say on my G25 transformer, but I assume the d.c. output is smoothed and regulated.
