My sincerest apologies to all for causing the fustercluck you've referred to. Hopefully I didn't screw anyone up too badly. I'd be happy to give y'all the points I was awarded in the B Class race but.... It's hard to share nothing :-[

I think the 3 screens are having a effect as well, maybe too much information to process?

Yes, that is the problem. I've read that triple setups can cause nerve damage and I will allow you to ship the setup to me at your cost.

Great night of racing! As most have said, that switchback on turn 4 is a KILLER.  Everyone was so intent to run clean on turn 1, but I think after talking to a few after the race that being "pulled in" to someones draft caused the most issues.

I do want to apologize to Gfacter, I think we traded paint for the better part of a lap with the classics.  Although it never wrecked or damaged us (as far as I could tell) there was some definite rubbing trying to out corner each other. 

I'm just happy that I'm not embarrassing myself with a new group of racers.  Ya'll are a blast to race with.

It's all good steeler. I have viewed the replay. You pushed a little hard through the kink to the left leaving you on the wall on the right. Mudd bounced off of you, and the next 3 cars behind you all piled in. They would have been on the wall if you weren't there.

So, it wasn't so much you directly, it just set off a chain reaction.

Watching the replay, when you see all the 430's coming down that straight to the kink, it looks like 8 pounds of chit getting stuffed in a 5 pound bag. You could see it was coming and it wasn't going to be pretty.

We were all new at 1 point steeler, just try to learn and move on. :)

I think it causes ADD too and Tourette's syndrome too.

No worries Delta that was clean hard racing, once you got your front wheel at my door I had to give up the corner.

I agree, it was good racing Steeler. I got caught on that corner once or twice as well. Very hard to judge it there when you've got cars in front and behind you just a few feet away. Plus, I was pushing and planning on being right up against that same wall, I should have lifted more and left room for someone to be there since it was so early in the race. I bet we're both gonna be ready for that one next time. Lol

Awesome as usual G!

I've noticed we have alot more racers using "chromes" and "color shifts". They look really good.

1 Race left until Championship.

Top 10 in points qualify for Final Race.

Good luck. Looks like lots of action in the middle of the points race.
