Triple 7 Racing server has been changed to the first combo
T7R|Teamserver

On the contrary - you'll have mastered one of these two difficult cars so much, you'll blow all competition away and wonder why you didn't discover them earlier!

If you're considering updating the league userbars for this, maybe change them to generic Road Sport Cup versions so they don't need forever changing (me optimistic for future seasons )

Quote :the starting positions for this feature race will be determined by reverse championship standings

I know you're trying to equalise everyones chances, but I just hope it isn't a recipe for carnage having eveyone squashing up for the first few laps.

Thanks Niki for organising

Had a good race, and a couple of unfortunate ones.
The first race was a good battle with Danowat, a couple of times I got level but had to pull in behind again. I thought I was destined to follow him all the way, then I finally made it past.

The 2nd race was not so good start for me. There was lots of nudging and pushing, I was caught off line for every corner which meant I lost another place on the exit. I finally messed up the chicane which spun me round. I limped back to the pits to repair damaged suspension and resumed from last.

The 3rd race was going well; I was 2nd but being caught by 3rd. Then the lights flickered in my room as though the power had been switched. Luckily my PC stayed on, but my router rebooted - disconnection grr

I've seen Active Webcam which seems decent. Multiple webcams can detect motion, record jpg or movie, make a sound.
The captured files can be uploaded to ftp, or connect remotely with another copy of the program, or it hosts a webpage with the camera.
(seems their site is down at the moment, you can try the software from the usual download places)

Quote from mikey_G :
-Are there any driving aids? like throttle blip or cut

Auto clutch and throttle blip are the only assistance available
Quote : -Is there a system like lfs' outgauge in iracing, because I prefer making my own displays.

No
Quote : -How crowded is iracing atm? Will I be doing "time trials" on racing servers, or are they usually packed?

Time trials are held on different servers from races. Because the races for a particular series are held only every 2 hours, this tends to group everyone to turn up at the same time. I would expect it to be busier than during the beta testing, there was plenty of opponents during evenings (UK time). Some of the series are staggered for different start times.
Quote : -What license do I need for the skip barber car? I just love that car

D licence, a safe decent driver should get there after 4 weeks
Quote :And lastly, when can I buy it? It's kinda shitty to see videos on utube and vimeo, and not being able to do the same

They're planning a progressive rollout to ensure decent service for those signed up. Sounds like it's by invitation from beta testers only for the first week, then probably those that registered interest, then public.

I prefer the music on Xfm (indie, rock) but the DAB reception is rubbish around here and it's unlistenable on the kitchen radio.

For the first time it's cost me more than £60 to fill my car up.
I think one of the major roadside assistance companies calculated the average cost of running a car in the UK has gone up 20% in the past year, more for larger vehicles.

The fuel companies make an obcene amount of money, but they say they have to charge what they do because OPEC fixes the price of oil per barrel. They would get in trouble if they sold it cheaper.

The government makes an obcene amount of money from the tax, and would like to take more! When will one of the major parties realise that we drive because we have to, not because we want to (most of the time). Probabaly when they realise there are 30 million drivers who are also voters.

I use a button on the gear shift unit. You could program it to a wheel button if you use it a lot. Or another controller, such as a joystick, if you want it to be an axis

Quote : When to apply

If your tax is due to run out at the end of the month, you can renew it from the 15th day of the month.

Ach, damn.
I was going to try anyway but realised I'd need the new MOT to be already done - that's being done at the weekend :weeping:
Let's see how much more I have to pay tomorrow :grumpy:

Hoping you'll return with renewed spirit.
If no more Road Sport Cup, where else am I going to get my RAC kicks from?

Quote from Bean0 :As I understood you can only renew if your VED expires within 14 days, which would mean that you can;t renew until after the budget. I could be wrong though.

I thought it was as soon as you get your reminder through the post, which I have

UK car tax

Anyone have their UK car tax due at the end of this month? Bet the budget will increase it for big cars tomorrow, buy it today!

Car tax bands based on CO2 emissions http://www.direct.gov.uk/en/Mo ... axYourVehicle/DG_10012524
Find your CO2 emissions http://www.smmtco2.co.uk/co2search2.asp

My car has 220g/km and I'm worried they move the boundaries which would push my car into the highest tax band

Quote from thisnameistaken :Er... What's the point in flying this old plane again? Just for nostalgic "Look, there's an old plane" reasons?

Because this plane was one of the best at giving you the spine tingling WOW!! factor at airshows... for aviation enthusiasts like me, anyway.
Hope they are able to chuck it around the sky like they used to, i.e. like a x10 scale fighter
I saw it's second last display in the early 90's, awesome!
