  • Shoegazing Leo
    Italian pipsqueaks: winning whithout talk, because it's impossible to drive while speak in Italian (which hands will last to drive?).
  • Cas

  • Zak McKracken
    Both Imperas and FinRok's replays have plenty of penalty time. Correction in progress...
  • Zak McKracken
    scoreboard should be final now. Congrats dreadnaut! Imperas / FinRok - please make sure to check your replays for penalty next time!!!
  • dreadnaut
    I'm back and... I appear to have won a race, which is shocking! :shocked: I must thank Duplode for not trying to hard, and FinRok for overtaking me and forcing me to find neater and neater cuts!
  • dreadnaut
    It only took me *five* years! :cheesy:
  • FinRok
    Congrats! @Dreadnaut Yes if i only found the cut before the bridge you you guys did i focused too much improving the end part which i pretty much got perfect! :cheesy:
  • dreadnaut
    Yep, if we put together your ending with Duplode's cut corners, we might shave another half-second, if not more!

  • Friker
    CONGRATULATIONS! Fleas ftw! :smiley:

Oct 4

  • dreadnaut
    Thank Friker! And nice track, Cas :smiley: You can almost finish the lap upside-down!
  • Cas
    Ha, ha... Thanks, Dreadnaut! I like making tracks fast and crazy

Oct 5

  • Cas
    Thanks for the advertising, Dreadnaut! Yeah, Race 4 Kicks is an OWOOT tournament. Differences from GAR are that NoRH is optional, it's a different race (a different track, different deadline) and there's a fixed car per race (always one of the fast cars). The reason it's like that is to resemble World Stunts Championship, ran by Paleke years ago, where I started racing Stunts for the first time.
  • Cas
    So... is anybody going to post a GAR time for this track? I've been trying to. It's difficult, but it has to be possible.
  • FinRok
    @Cas I tried once with Lotus but i landed on the tunnel roof :cheesy:
  • Cas
    Oh! Is the double-jump possible at all with the Lotus? :shocked:
  • FinRok
    It is but youll have to brake in correct time before the last jump, only needs little practice. IMO
  • Cas
    Oh, you did it! :shocked:
  • dreadnaut
    Happy Birthday, Akoss! Join us for a lap when you feel like it :smiley:

  • Cas
    Happy Birthday, Akoss Poo!

Oct 7

  • Cas
    Thanks to the guys who've participated in R4K so far! There are three days left still. Replays will be valid up to the deadline date "inclusive", UTC (that is, until the last second of 10 October).

Oct 8

  • dreadnaut
    Wooo! I managed to finish the lap upside down :smiley:

Oct 9

  • Cas
    Ha, ha! That was a good one!

Oct 10

  • Seeker1982
    seems that my run is the first serious GAR-Lap Could have been a sub 1:36,0 but for the time being I think it`s good.

Oct 12

  • FinRok
    Nice GAR! SCheeter 1982 you using DOsBox? Daum SvN with save states? and video editor hahaha. otherswise you're cyborgh!
  • FinRok
    @Seeker1982 you gotta proof your lap and drive in live! Record your lap with cell phone for certificate or something! Those times are crazy... if so I tip my hat for you!
  • Seeker1982
    @Finrok - I use DOSbox Daum-SVN, and yes I have recorded them realtime etc - I just havn't uploaded them yet since I'm still improving my times and I haven't even yet tried the Lotus until this last run. And btw - I thought Marco already approved my times clean - guess I'm a "cyborgh"
  • Seeker1982
    new Lotus lap - btw: DOSbox SVN Daum is the only Dosbox-version/SVN I know which has working recording capabilities
  • Cas
    Seeker: I agree the time is really amazing for NoRH! However, I think jumping over the slalom is not allowed in GAR... and I'm sure driving over a tunnel isn't either (I learnt that one with my own experience :sad: )
  • Seeker1982
    @GAS: What replay were you watching? I definitely didn't drove over the tunnel, I might just look like that if viewed from above - the roof gets removed so the car can be seen. You just have to downdlowd the replay file and watch in cockpit view. Or did you mean the pipe? And the concrete block "slalom": in the GAR v3-Rules-vid it only says not to drive THROUGH them, it doesn't say anything about jumping - anyways I was over the road and still followed the straight yellow line.
  • Seeker1982
    sorry, I just noticed where I actually drove over a tunnel. I'm so used to it from my own driving stile I didn't notice it first time around. Seems I do have to do a clean run.. damn
  • Seeker1982
    new GAR lap, this time around without driving over tunnels - I figured I can do 800▀rpm in last gear to make it into the tunnel

Oct 13

  • Cas
    Yep, mate, it was the second tunnel. Very easy to end up on top of it. About the slaloms, I just suspected, but really had never heard it was wrong to jump over them.
  • Seeker1982
    my 1st time below 1:29 in RH :smiley: However, I just can't figure out how to skip the loop
  • Seeker1982
    I'm almost back to my original GAR-time :cheesy:
  • Cas
    Well, skipping loops is one of the things that are the hardest for me to do. Another is skipping corks through the left side, although, since I can do it easily on the right site, I haven't tried much to better that one.

Oct 14

  • Seeker1982
    sorry for kinda spamming, but I just drove a unbelievable time - sub 1:35 with GARules. Since I expect you want realtime video proof - here's the video:
  • dreadnaut
    That's a mix of extreme skill, and a bit of luck :cheesy: Not one unexpected bump or jump, brilliant! Btw, you can hide/show replay recorder and dashboard directly pressing R or D, no need to go to the menu.
  • dreadnaut
    Here's a more relaxed GAR result :smiley:
  • Cas
    Spectacular laps, guys!!! :cheesy:
  • Seeker1982
    new RH-Lap - I think that it's as fast as possible without cutting the loop
  • FinRok
    Hey something is wrong as i tried upload my lap? It says here that it ended up in crash? and that's not right! i completed perfect lap without crash!!!
  • dreadnaut
    It happens with some replays that appear "cut" at the end. Could you try to drive the last second / half-second again, and save a new one?
  • FinRok
    $hit @ss f0ck it works ! :cheesy:

Oct 15

  • dreadnaut
    Sigh, and now I have to start again with another cars... at least it's the Lotus! :smiley:
  • Seeker1982
    guess the same, alought I already tried the Lotus in GAR where the effective times were slower

Jump to a different month
