Have you ever heard of any RL racing series where they banned overtaking on some parts of the track?
Look man, most of the corners are dangerous if no one backs off. You just cant fit 2 cars on the ideal racing line in any turn, you just can't. It's the same in that chicane, as in any other turns. Someone will have to back off, and thats what overtaking is all about.
If he bans overtaking, I'm out of this league. Case closed.
You can't make any parts of the track forbidden to overtake lol. Everyone overtakes where they can. If he handles the risk, or the chance of a penalty, then its ok.
I remember a Hungarian League race, where I won both sprint races even fomr 10th on the grid, cause no one expected me to overtake in that chicane.
But as I said, you can't tell drivers that you musn't overtake there just because it's too dangerous.
All parts are important. Id say the least important part is the optical drive. Many people mess up their setup with a cheap psu and case. I know many friends who went with a cheap psu or case, since they said 'a case or psu wont give me extra fps', and now they suck in the summer with the temps due to now enough airflow, or simply their psu give up.
So I'd say, if you make a new PC, don't save on any main parts, or otherwise you will have problems with it. If not right away, in the really near future.
As for a personal example, I bought a 460W Enermay PSU around 6 years ago, and I'm still using it in my new system. Spent my pants on it, but It was worth it.
So under yellow flag you can do anything you want on the track? I don't think so. In this case, you shouldn't have moved until you have a clear track behind you.
I know everyone cares more about their own race, and try to get back on track asap, but you do have to respect others on the track tho. You cant't just say 'it was yellow flag, others should've been careful'. If you had stopped there, no one would've crashed you.
You cannot satisfy all the people who take part. There are only a few who have problems, and thats way under the threshold limit.
Also, be strict and consequent with the rules you made, make no exceptions, and it will work. Also if they have a problem with each other, thats not your problem. You handle the league, not the personal affairs, let them sort it out themselves.
I'm not a race judge nor it's my duty to make decisions in this case, but it's clearly your fault. Paul was on his line, you waved 2 times, and on the 2nd time you hit him. Heres the video if you want to check it yourself, and others as well (as you said these should be made public).
Man, insane insurance prices there.
I paid around 250 pounds (with the current rates) first year for my '90 3.8 supercharged V6 Thunderbird when I was 19. And it was on my name Another reason why not to move to the UK

Well, they are around 5-6 years old, and their price were insane here in Hungary. With the current exchange rates it cost me around 700$, but it was like half, or even less in the states, or in other countries. The only problem with it, that it has no digital input, but it doesn't matter for me. They sound really nice with my X-fi Fatality. The mid and high-range are excellent, lots of room in it, but the 2 20cm subwoofers run out of juice much sooner than the satellite speakers. They are discontinued afaik.
Edit: As for the price differences, A wall bracket for my speakers would be 30$ a pair in the USA, and here they are 130$ a pair...
It depends on what do you compare them with. The Z5500 and a proper 5.1 system are not the same class. The Z5500 is a compact solution mostly for games, but of course you can use it as a home theatre system.
It loses the match against real home theatre systems on the cabling, amplifier, size of the drivers, and building materials, so kinda everywhere.
Thats why they are for PC, compact, relatively cheap, and has nice sound, but if you really want quality movie and/or music experience, you gotta go with a bigger system. Even that Logitech system would sound much better with a standalone home theatre amplifier, and proper cabling.
Myself using a nearly stoneage Klipsch Promedia 5.1. Ideal for games, and music, has the best sound of it's category imo. Not really planning to replace it
