  • A strange season is behind us. Not uncommon at ZakStunts. :) And what a race in december! Ayrton won the classic race on Default with an insane time, congratulations! All your results will of course be transferred to the permanent competition.
    We'd like to congratulate to the best drivers of 2007:
    The new champion: CTG, 111pts
    The second: Mark L. Rivers, 102pts
    The third: Chulk, 82pts
    May their results and fame live forever!
  • Duplode
    Happy New Year, World!! =D
  • Mark L. Rivers
    Well, after Z79 NORH times, I really hope this year there will be a higher number of NORH racers than 2007 when the "Feel the thrill", the 2008 official NORH contest managed by Krys, will start... :smiley:
  • AbuRaf70
    Happy Birthday to all...!!!
  • Zak McKracken
    The first replay of ZakStunts2008. Happy new year!
  • Duplode
    This replay is horrendous, I am just testing the submission system :-)
  • Chulk
    Happy Birthday to everyone! Strange thing 3 racers have birthday on January 1st!
  • Chulk
    And of course Happy New Year!
  • Chulk
    Fisrt try with Audi. I'll try other cars later.
  • Duplode
    First impressions: exploration will be sometimes hard work but anyway good fun this season... ;-)

Jan 2

  • CTG
    Short RH test with auto gears and LM002: 2:06.10
  • Mark L. Rivers
    Short test with Indy... :wink:
  • Zak McKracken
    oops :smiley:
  • CTG
    Short Audi test with manual gears and with cutting the cork: 1:44.45.
  • CTG
    ---> 1:16. Audi and Lancia can be in party with Indy.
  • Zak McKracken
    why don't you send your short test?
  • CTG
    Because I'm retired from racing. :cheesy:
  • Zak McKracken
    oh, so you are a professional tester now, lol...
  • CTG
    Schumacher did the same in F1... :cheesy: Anyway: Porsche Carrera 1:52.35 ---> ~1:18
  • CTG
    Jaguar XJ IMSA 1:24.80 ---> ~1:15, maybe IMSA is good too? :-S Congrats Zak, car bonuses work quite good!
  • Duplode
    Yes, I'm positively impressed with the system too, it does seem very balanced. :smiley:
  • Chulk
    Nice work Zak! I'ver tried 4 cars and did around the same time with the 4 of them!
  • Chulk
    Small finish line improvement
  • CTG
    Chulk: try to cut the cork up-down. It will be 10 seconds better.
  • CTG
    (or at least 7-8)

Jan 3

  • CTG
    Ayrton's time is strong.
  • CTG
    From now IMSA is out of the party again and only slight chance for the slowest cars...
  • Mark L. Rivers
    Another dazzling challenge is starting... :wink:
  • satanziege
    What a time :-)
  • satanziege
    next try...
  • satanziege
    Next try - next car...
  • CTG
    I'm afraid of the Indy test... Some PG magic is needed to catch Mark.
  • CTG
    "How to" is okay, solution is still left.
  • Duplode
    Happy birthday, Navras...
  • CTG
    Lancia test: 1:39.10 ---> still too slow...
  • AbuRaf70
    Happy Birthday, Navras...!!!
  • Bonzai Joe
    I think I've determined my strategy for this season: wait until the others have determined which car should be used, then just use that car :smiley:
  • Duplode
    Maybe you should sign CTG as test driver then... ;-)
  • Zak McKracken
    but my plan is definitely working, sure there is less time to max out the replay :smiley:
  • Zak McKracken
    will we see -2.5% for the indy at the next track? :smiley:
  • CTG
    Nice time by Ayrton! I was at 1:06... :-S
  • CTG
    and 57-58 secs is also possible...
  • satanziege
    hm let's see, what the car bonus does..
  • Mark L. Rivers
    Ayrton is my absolute reference for Indy, the greatest Indy driver. So I'm really happy when I succeed to stay near him! :smiley:
  • CTG
    Finally... 1:03.90! It was damned hard! From now my goal is 59.95. If I do it,I'll send it.

Jan 4

  • CTG
    WOW!
  • Mark L. Rivers
    Bad wake up for me... =:O/ Now, as usual, I have to go to work (no internet connection...), so... see you (maybe) later... :smiley:
  • Krys TOFF
    1st try during lunch break, almost noRH, no sound, native use under XP (so with shitty delay of reaction when key is pressed).
  • SuperBrian
    Is it possible to change car after this first replay?
  • Bonzai Joe
    Yes!

Jan 6

  • Duplode
    Slightly frustrated - I didn't want to race Indy... plus that BLOODY cut on the cork u/d.

Jan 7

  • CTG
    That's not the hardest trick of the track...
  • Duplode
    With the way I'm currently following on my Indy trial, it probably is - thegether with the whole section before...

Jan 9

  • CTG
    no replay for ages...
  • Anonymous
    b?ff

Jan 11

  • CTG
    USRIIN!!! :cheesy: Böff reduction: 46B
  • Zak McKracken
    Nice to see you back, Usrin! Now we only miss Poo! :smiley:

Jan 12

  • Duplode
    Finally, a semi-decent lap with Indy. I won't be in mood to try again for a while...
  • Bonzai Joe
    Hi Usrin! Great to see you :smiley:
  • Zak McKracken
    I'll stick to the Audi :smiley:

Jan 13

  • Duplode
    Well, let's say my mood changed since my last comment... ;-)

  • Mark L. Rivers
    74 years... Will we still be writing our comments on this column when we reached them...? He's great, isn't it? :smiley:
  • Zak McKracken
    AbuRaf is truly an example for all of us to follow. Happy Birthday!

Jan 16

  • Bonzai Joe
    Well done Ayrton, that's like an attack from the yellow jersey :smiley:
  • Mark L. Rivers
    ISM is absorbing me a lot, but I didn't forget this race... :wink:
  • JTK
    :smiley:

Jan 18

  • Mark L. Rivers
    Well, no other demonstrations of force by Ayrton... So maybe we are by now near to the limit... :grin:
  • CTG
    No, you aren't. 59 is also possible.
  • Ayrton
    That?s my limit with this replay, i need to redrive the circuit. :-/
  • Mark L. Rivers
    I think you'll win, Ayrton. I have not your skill, and maybe I never will have it. I'll be anyway very happy if I'll succeed to stay near you until the end. :smiley:

Jan 21

  • CTG
    It's summer time, we are licking... :grin:

Jan 22

  • Duplode
    Welcome/ Seja bem-vindo, AMG!
  • Bonzai Joe
    It's nighttime, and therefore I love you all. Whether you like it or not, and whether you care or not! Fish remain as yellow as the wind on summer evenings.
  • Bonzai Joe
    Whoa, I wasn't expecting a simultaneous post there...
  • CTG
    BJ was drunk for sure.
  • Bonzai Joe
    Actually I wasn't really drunk. I had had three glasses of red wine some hours before, and then a really strong cup of coffee.
  • CTG
    Coffee after wine? WHY :huh?: :cheesy:
  • AMG
    thanks/obrigado, Duplode. :smiley:

Jan 23

  • Ayrton
    Mark is pushing me to the limit, this race remember me the old battles with Alain, that is good ...
  • SuperBrian
    Coffee and wine mixed together makes you drive better, don't know if BJ agrees with that. Anyway I prefer 20 beers instead.. :smiley:
  • Anonymous
    Alain vs Alain, now Alain vs Alain. It's really good.
  • Dark Chaser
    Hi, friends!!! Where are our fantastic teams :huh?: Orion (my team, winner in 2006... hahaha), Corks, Looping, Meganium, Damage and others: where are them :huh?:
  • Duplode
    Nice to see my compatriots are reappearing! :-)
  • CTG
    Darkie: you should form a team with Mark and Duplode.
  • Mark L. Rivers
    @Ayrton: Really honoured for your last comment... :smiley:
  • Bonzai Joe
    That's my boy SuperBrian!! Coffee and wine together because: 1. It feels unusual, a bit unpleasant but it is a good thing in itself that it's unusual. 2. I can't just get drunk all the time, sometimes I have to get high on caffeine instead. That was one of those nights. 3. Isn't it a good idea to combine the best things in the world? Like smokers combine sex & smoking, like religious people combine prayer and sociality, like musicals combine love and music, well I combine red wine and coffee! 20 beers... Yes, but it takes so long to drink, you have to pee so much, and if you cross the line, vomiting it all up takes such a long time.

Jan 24

  • CTG
    Ah the Renato Biker symptom again... Alain moved to Brasil? :cheesy:

Jan 29

  • Chulk
    OK, 2nd finished replay sent. Quite far from the podium...
  • Duplode
    @Chulk: As you sent your replay before "quiet period" started and it hasn't appeared in scoreboard, you'd better re-send it...
  • CTG
    I guess he made a hidden sending. Like me and my 58.35... :cheesy:

  • Chulk
    Yes, Duplode's right. Send to scoreboard box was checked I think. Here it goes again, hidden voluntary this time...
  • Duplode
