Dec 1

  • CTG
    Acura1s top speed is only 20x mph and hard to control in powergear. Lancia can do the same speed without powergear, better handling and some really weird Stunts ability (see ZCT21 or Torino replays...)
  • Alan Rotoi
    Or Zct14 :smiley:
  • Alan Rotoi
    I mean zct15 replay :cheesy:
  • CTG
    Yeah, it was great.
  • CTG
    Rotoi: don't make us fool, push as hard as you can! These times are just bad jokes from you. :tongue:
  • CTG
    Whatever happens, Lancia is my final choice.
  • Alan Rotoi
    Ok I'll try it :smiley:
  • CTG
    Nice time with Acura!
  • CTG
    Btw replays from Rotoi at 4:27, 8:31 and 10:03 :huh?: When do you sleep?
  • Bonzai Joe
    I'm guessing it was a late night for Rotoi, and he went to bed at 5AM after finishing the Acura replay :smiley:
  • Bonzai Joe
    Duplode: You lose because you drop 2 seconds in the first corkscrew :sad: A replay must be driven from the beginning! And a teammate should tell you that, and show you how to drive an up/down corkscrew. Great power gear driving, too bad it was no use.
  • CTG
    5AM is insane... Even I went to bed at 4:20! :cheesy:
  • CTG
    Jaguar has no chance at all.
  • CTG
    57.00 is damned weak anyway... :cheesy:
  • CTG
    (only the last quarter is really strong in my replay)

Dec 2

  • Alan Rotoi
    I'm playing Lineage II and when I have to rest to restore my magic points I race on stunts :smiley:
  • CTG
    Nice time from such an old dog! :cheesy:
  • CTG
    I think 53.00 is a realistic goal.
  • CTG
    Whoooooooo I just realized that you used Acura! Great!!!

Dec 3

  • CTG
    Hey dog, this one is a really powerful replay!
  • Bonzai Joe
    Do any other cars have a chance to reach 54.15? (for non-Ayrtons)

Dec 4

  • Alan Rotoi
    I think a very good lap with Lancia can reach that time.
  • CTG
    Lancia for sure, maybe GTO (?).
  • SuperBrian
    First try 2nd December, almost NoRH..
  • SuperBrian
    2nd try, a bit faster.
  • CTG
    Brian: Your auto trm lap is quite strong! Learn how to use manual gears and you will become a top driver!
  • Duplode
    This test lap of mine serves little purpose... but anyway what CTG said about Brian is true ;-) SB, the jump to manuals won't be really hard for you :-) (as for me, I was a bit worried about learning it when I started last year, but once I started trying the process went much smoother than I could predict)
  • SuperBrian
    Hmm, maybe I should give it a shot this time. I think I'll do the best I can with autogears the next days, and then I'll do whatever I can to beat it with the manuel gearing. The reason why I gave up once, was when I started driving C63 and ended up in the same place I as used to. Actually it helped a lot on the Default-track C70, before that I had never driven below 53 seconds on Default.
  • dstien
    Jumping on the Acura bandwagon...

Dec 5

  • CTG
    Quite a strong Jaguar time from Zak.
  • CTG
    8 hours left to Dobsina deadline, no more updates at the site and Forum before that.
  • Goblin
    I don't know how you guys make 90 seconds... But I'll keep tryin'! :smiley:)
  • Alan Rotoi
    We use a replay handling.
  • Bonzai Joe
    Trying out the Lancia...

Dec 6

  • Bonzai Joe
    Trying out the Ferrari...
  • Bonzai Joe
    Hmmm...
  • Duplode
    Trying out the Lancia, again... (replay done on Thursday, had forgotten to send it)

Dec 7

  • Alan Rotoi
    Where Goblin is from? :smiley:
  • Alan Rotoi
    Maybe from ghostland :cheesy: When was the last flamewar/ghost affair?
  • Mark L. Rivers
    Not too easy managing the Acura PG near the buildings...
  • Alan Rotoi
    Come to the new chat at forum Mark!

Dec 8

  • SuperBrian
    So this is the autotime I'll try to beat with manuelgearing.
  • CTG
    STRONG, VERY STRONG!!! OMG!!!
  • Goblin
    Hey Alan, care to find Belarus on the world map ? :smiley: I'm getting better with my replays, but only slightly...
  • Zak McKracken
    Belarus, great! I have to add a new flag!
  • CTG
    Acura is not very nice, but fast on this track... :-S
  • CTG
    pressure?
  • CTG
    Good to know... :cheesy:

Dec 9

  • Alan Rotoi
    Welcome to the stunts community Goblin ^_^.
  • Duplode
    Welcome Goblin - cool to see new countries around! ;-)
  • Duplode
    It took a while, but I think I finally got how this one goes... ;-)
  • CTG
    Yes, you are on the good way. Rotoi? :cheesy:
  • Alan Rotoi
    I'm here, I'm here! Sorry for the delay :smiley:
  • CTG
    I wonder how strong your time is without braking at the end... :cheesy:
  • Krys TOFF
    1st try, auto gears, no sound, minimum RH to avoid crashes (replay done at my job during lunch break). And welcome to Goblin. :-D
  • Alan Rotoi
    I don't break at the end, they are all real trys.
  • CTG
    I believe you. And this is true for my replays too... :cheesy:

Dec 10

  • CTG
    I won't touch Stunts in the next few weeks.
  • Alan Rotoi
    :O
  • Duplode
    :undecided:
  • CTG
    :tongue:

Dec 13

  • Zak McKracken
    acura test drive

Dec 14

  • CTG
    Nice lap.

Dec 15

  • CTG
    I was wrong. Touched Stunts. :wink:
  • Duplode
    And touched it with gusto, it seems :wink: This "return" means we should expect you at ISM qualifying too? :smiley:
  • CTG
    We will see... my finish sucks.
  • CTG
    Slightly better.
  • Alan Rotoi
    wow! Very good time! Devastating.
  • Duplode
    Impressive! Currently I can think of only one way to (maybe) get that fast with Acura, and you managed something pretty cool if you used it... don't know if I'll be able to follow :wink:
  • CTG
    Well... it's still far from my idea. And the same problem as with Dobsina: really weak first half. Maybe I can improve it by 2 seconds but then comes the key part and I'm not sure if I can complete it again in the same (or even better) way.
  • CTG
    Btw I think we will have a new leader soon, maybe in a few hours... Alan/Ayrton/BJ/Duplode/Mark?
  • Goblin
    I still don't know how you guys doin' it... :smiley:
  • CTG
    By two hands and with a lot of spare time. :cheesy:
  • CTG
    I still think Ayrton will use GTO or Corvette...

Dec 16

  • Alan Rotoi
    I can't imagine that :smiley:
  • CTG
    You underestimate yourself... erm... Ayrton. :cheesy:
  • Alan Rotoi
    jaja :cheesy:

Dec 17

  • Bonzai Joe
    A very happy birthday to the Godfather of Stunts and general top-class guy, Zak McKracken! :smiley:
  • AbuRaf70
    Happy Birthday, Zak...!!!
  • CTG
    Happy Birthday, Old Man! :cheesy:
  • dstien
    Happy Zak-day!
  • Duplode
    Damn, CTG, your current key section must be really-really strong...
  • Duplode
    A toast to the captain! Happy birthday Zak! :smiley:
  • CTG
    That part is not perfect either... :-S
  • Krys TOFF
    Happy Eastern Zak. Errr, no, not eastern, birthday. ^_^
  • CTG
    Töff: your memory seems to fail. Oh yes, you are damned old Frenchman! :cheesy:

Dec 18

  • Zak McKracken
    Thank you all for the wishes :smiley:
  • SuperBrian
    Still slower with manual gears, I'm really trying. Here's my fastest auto-acura. Furthermore, happy birthday yesterday Zak!
  • SuperBrian
    Oh, its absolutely the same time with my Lancia.. :tongue:
  • CTG
    Quite a good auto-Acura lap!
  • CTG
    Quite a good auto-Acura lap!
  • SuperBrian
    This one is slightly better.. :tongue:
  • Mark L. Rivers
    It seems that 27 years ago it still missed a double decade to the born of our adventure... :wink:

Dec 19

  • Ayrton
    Happy Birthday Zaky !! :wink:

Dec 20

  • Duplode
    :rolleyes:
  • Zak McKracken
    he let us play for a while and now here he is...
  • Bonzai Joe
    With a not very strong time :cheesy:
  • SuperBrian
    Its just to prove to the sceptics that he doesn't use Ferrari like CTG predicted. He uses the Corvette.. :tongue:
  • CTG
    If I could do the key part with Acura then Ayrton is able to complete it in GTO's powergear.

Dec 21

  • Ayrton
    Bonus isn´t helping ...

Dec 22

  • Site update for the 2009 system has started. If you experience unusual behaviour, don't worry.
  • Bonzai Joe
    Haha, Ayrton did what I thought I could beat him if I did.... This is going to be harder than I thought.
  • Duplode
    I already knew I would need a redrive for optimizing my lap fully - the only change now is that maybe a car change will be required. See, blind optimism can help sometimes :smiley:
  • CTG
    Not the behaviour but the design is weird. Black letters for example... :cheesy:
  • Bonzai Joe
    Note to my last message: "and I thought it was going to be pretty damn hard." Duplode: if you need a redrive to optimize your lap, you are spending your time wrong and will be weakened against your opponents. But of course in this case the car change could be a blessing :smiley:
  • Duplode
    BJ: Yes, I know - I always try to follow your advice on "racing a race from the beginning" (not only after Z89, but from that old "Tips For Newbies" article I read quite a while ago), but most of the time I still lack discipline... anyway, this time it's just I realized having left ~0.20s in the beginning, and fortunately I still haven't spent that much time racing Z90 (most of it on the main trick for the 1:07 lap, but that was mostly a proof-of-concept).
  • Duplode
    And BTW, the last post shows how I'm trying to playing with open cards on this last race. Or not? :cheesy:
  • Bonzai Joe
    0.20 is not so bad... But now you have a chance to drive the next lap from the beginning :-)

Dec 23

  • CTG
    Leaving Budapest for two weeks, have fun and don't dare to beat my time! :cheesy: Merry Christmas to all of you!

Dec 24

  • AbuRaf70
    Happy Birthday, Diesel Joe...!!!
  • AbuRaf70
    Es mi deseo que todos los integrantes de esta Gran Familia del Stunts, junto a sus seres queridos, pasen una MUY FELIZ NAVIDAD 2008...!!!
  • Duplode
    Happy birthday to DJ! And Merry Christmas to everyone! =)

Dec 25

  • Alan Rotoi
    Merry Xmassssssssssss!!
  • Krys TOFF
    (late) happy birthday to DJ, and merry krys-mas everybody. ^_^
  • AbuRaf70
    Muy bueno lo de "krys-mas"...
  • Zak McKracken
    Merry Christmas to Everyone!

Dec 27

  • DieselJoe
    As I heard Velvet Underground's Venus in Furs on a party yesterday, I was reminded to take a look here once again! :cheesy:
    Thanks for the birthday wishes and greetings to everybody!
    I think I'll be able to report back more detailed later... Who knows, maybe I'll even manage to send in a replay. :smiley:
    Fisse fisse, fisse fisse fisse!!!
  • Zak McKracken
    Diesel, Diesel, Diesel Joe's still singing! Glad to see you back, hopefully see you next season - or at least in the forums :smiley:

Dec 28

  • Alan Rotoi
    I don't have time to finish my replay... :sad:
  • Bonzai Joe
    Hi Diesel Joe! :smiley: You should rejoin us, it's still a blast...
  • Zak McKracken
    test

Dec 29

  • Duplode
    Dunno if I'll find stamina for the one (at minimum) redrive I'll need for serious improvement (if possible)........
  • Duplode
    And I wonder what Mark has up his sleeve :wink:

Dec 30

  • Site update for 2009 complete. The most important new stuff is the Newbie Guide. I hope we'll see more newcomers in 2009!
    Some stuff still has to be added to the site - you can check the progress in the forum announcements.
  • Ayrton
    Last shot ! far from home. Happy new year to all !!!
  • Duplode
    Happy new year, champion :smiley:
  • Bonzai Joe
    I just can't do the power gear part on the water in the middle of the track. Too bad. I hope Duplode wins! No offense to Ayrton, would just be good to see another winner. Happy new year and congratulations to Ayrton in any case.
  • Duplode
    Full redrive idea discarded, I can't do that in one hour. I'll just scrutinize my replay and see if there's a miracle-trick waiting somewhere. It seems Ayrton will have his perfect season...
  • Duplode
    I think I've found where half of my gap to CTG is. Too bad there's hardly any time to do a thing...
  • Zak McKracken
    there is one hour left to go :smiley:
  • Duplode
    Now if I can pull off the main trick and finish the final third of the lap in 50 minutes, I'll save... 0.7s. Damn :smiley:
  • Mark L. Rivers
    Sorry but I won't improve my time... I had thought to make some trials this evening, but I'm just arrived at home after a murderous workday (8.00 - 18.30 without break for lunch...). I'm destroyed... My congratulations go to Ayrton, the Dominator, and a great Duplode, 2nd place really well deserved. :smiley:
  • Duplode
    My angle of attack is about one meter off, and I'm not having any luck...
  • Zak McKracken
    less than 5 minutes to go...
  • Duplode
    Out of time... again, congratulations to Ayrton (with a 21-gun salute!), and long live ZakStunts!
  • Zak McKracken
    ...and the final results are up! update in progress, stay tuned!
