    Happy "O joy Zapper posted a new car two days ago and I only just noticed" day everyone!

  • Marco
    There are new cars my friends ? Where?
  • dreadnaut
    You'll quite like this one: Pontiac Firebird Turbo Trans Am - K.I.T.T.
  • Marco
    WHAT ?!?!? Am i dreaming ? Did you KITT ... I know it was a CTG project. Please My friends, if this is a joke ... tell me now, I could die. I go to check
  • Marco
    This car is simply amazing, you can use it as a normal Pontiac till 162 mph but decreasing the gears at the right moment, it becomes Knight Rider reaching in a while 245 mph. I simply LOVE IT !!!

    Thanks, but I did not become case sensitive (Afullo is listed as current member, while afullo is listed as past member) :tongue:
  • dreadnaut
    @afullo Well spotted, now fixed. Thank you!
  • dreadnaut
    Welcome to ZakStunts 2021, everyone 🎉 The new track by Akoss Poo is up, and the race starts officially at midnight.

    Btw this is my 18th active season... :roll eyes:

  • dreadnaut
    For the stats nerds, I've refreshed the racer profile pages, and added charts!
  • Duplode
    It feels right to kick off my 13th season in Cork with a Countach lap. Hello, Looping! :cheesy:

  • afullo
    Welcome all to the 21st season of ZakStunts! :smiley: Nice plots, they show better how my activity had been very limited in 2016 and 2017! :tongue: Just a little remark: did Traction Faction renounce to participate as a team? Heretic and Stingray are active... :wink:
  • Friker
    Guess who's back.. ..maybe for this one replay only. Hi there and happy new year.

    @CTG How many of those 17 past seasons were without ghosts? :wink:
  • Daniel3D
    Woo-hoo, my first upload.. Could be faster, but I have to start somewhere...
  • Friker
    One question regarding GAR competition - is pressing ESC and then continuing driving considering RH or NoRH (if you did not rewind your name appears on the in-game scoreboard and is legit according to the game)?
    Jaguar 1:35.66 A
  • CTG
    @Friker: I refuse to answer without my lawyer present. :grin: Btw pressing ESC is forbidden in GAR competition. Pure noRH is required. And don't worry, usually I don't race there to avoid any doubts. :tongue:
  • Akoss Poo
    No-one is inspecting your GAR rpl, that's why I'm not racing. I only believe no-RH times reached at World Stunts Meetings. According to them, Bonzai Joe is the fastest man.
  • Marco
    With GAR Rules you cannot press Esc or anything else than drive clean and folowing the yellow line.
  • dreadnaut
    @Akoss, there is no official GAR ranking or trophy though, so one can race if they enjoy the challenge, and that's about it. Very little to win or lose.

Jan 12

  • dreadnaut
    Welcome to the scoreboard, @Daniel3D. We'll get the missing flag as soon as possible! :wink:
  • dreadnaut
    And welcome back @Friker, nice to see you around pal! 👋
  • Cas
    Hey! So nice to see so many of you here, guys! :smiley:
  • Daniel3D
    I don't care about the missing flag. the right flag (Dutch) would be nice though :smiley:

Jan 13

  • Duplode
    @Daniel3D Okay, flag switched!
  • Daniel3D
    @duplode thanks. For those that saw my age, I'm not that old, just 41 :wink: I find that old enough..
  • Daniel3D
    @Marco. In gar rules. Can you press ESC to pause the game to scratch your nose or something? Workout any alteration to the run? I know 'p' pauses the game but is difficult to find if you're into the race. Is 'p' allowed to pause?
  • Friker
    @Daniel3D Lol, I had literally the same question 3 days ago. :smiley: It seems that pressing ESC is not an option.. I am wondering about that 'p' keypress. Btw @Marco - I find it *very* difficult to not accidentally trigger speed boosts on banked roads and corkscrews (on exit). That is something I was trained to do in past. This invalidated many of my attempts and somehow it is not enjoyable playing the game that way.
  • Duplode
    @Daniel3D GAR includes NoRH, and NoRH = no pauses (no ESC, no "p", no Alt+Pause on DOSBox, etc.), regardless of rewinding. @Friker My view is that banked road jumps are part of the "normal" physics of the game (unlike, say, boulevard wall collision bumps). I have them in my own GAR laps, and AFAIK neither @Marco nor other verifiers consider GAR laps invalid because of them. As for l/r corks, the very strict GAR rule about them did bother me early on, but after a while I have gotten used to it -- to me, it doesn't feel unnatural in the way having to drive without banked road jumps would.
  • Alan Rotoi
    The tracks name is quiet dark. I hope it's everything allright there!
  • Marco
    Hi my friends , Esc or pause is not allowed , it has no sense , what 's the need to press Esc on a gar race ? Regarding random speedup, they are good. In my gar rules video, I specify that "unvoluntary" speed up on banked roads or after some jumps are valid. As gentlemen agreement you must apologize for that but they are valid and to be honest sometimes we look for that as in this circuit. You can speed up the first enter on banked :smiley: . Other speed up as entering or jumping out early from corkscrew or hitting divided roads, etc. are obviously super forbidden

  • Zak McKracken
    Through you'd appreciate this one. Filmed entirely in/near Budapest (the drive-in place is actually 10mins from my home) , feels like a time travel back to the late 80s - early 90s.

Jan 15

  • Duplode
    @ZakMcKracken Nice trip, thanks!

    LTB hours can be carried from one year to another? :roll eyes:
  • KaoS
    Happy New year sorry that i was long time not here but now im activ again :smiley:

Jan 17

  • Duplode
    Hello KaoS! Welcome to season 2021 :smiley:
  • dreadnaut
    @CTG That was my idea yes. You and Duplode (and a few others) can get 300h+ easily, but for those that might collect just a few hours each race, a yearly reset would crush any hopes of accumulating enough hours.
  • CTG
    Hmmm okay, I can live together with such a concept, although I don't really agree with that - seasonal results should mirror only the performance in that certain year. It might be a disadvantage for new contenders like Poo or Friker.

Jan 18

  • dreadnaut
    I'll try to make the accumulated hours visible somewhere. Looking at those numbers, you'd see it's unlikely to not a be problem—they are very small.
  • Akoss Poo
    Accumulating remaining (not-used) leading time hours would have helped a lot when I raced for the overall (2002-04, 2014-15). Now I don't really care, do not expect driving all the tracks from me...
  • CTG
    The same here. Presumably I won't participate in every race, so the overall results are not that important.
  • Alan Rotoi
    Are you married? (kidding :cheesy:)

Jan 20

  • Overdrijf
    Oh right, of course, the new season started. And we have a full scoreboard already, even @Friker is here! Nice! (As an aside, I do sometimes press escape during NoRH races, because I'm wondering if I went off track in that last corner, and if I keep wondering I will just lose focus and miss the next corner. So I look and then continue from the point where I stopped. I sort of assumed that was legal... Of course, actually looking usually breaks my focus as well, and I miss the next corner anyway. I'm just not very good at NoRH. :wink:)
