  • Wowowowowow. What a race.
    If I need to measure it by one thing, I would say: When happened it last, that all of the top 7 racers sent a replay during quiet days?
    Looong time ago. Sure, there was a considerable and long silence in the middle of the month, but the first week and the last days were stellar.
    And take a look at the differences!
    Duplode won. Congratulations! But by ho much? .25 seconds UNCORRECTED. Actually, he was on par for a couple of seconds with Renato Biker, who eventually finished second. Well, this was not a track where you could simply do some fine-tuning and redrive on the last seconds and win significant time with it. It needed hard efforts. And I mean HARD.
    And AbuRaf70 was strong enough! Third place on an Indy track? Many just dream about it. Congrats to both Renato and Aburaf!
    Oh, there is someone else I want to mention. See that car on the fourth place? Wait a sec... what's that? An Acura? By a few milliseconds behind? Driven by Alan Rotoi, turning the table - almost.
    Great race folks, great race!
    Off to ZCT136: It's time to think. Actually I was so confused by my own creation I did not even dare to drive a serious test lap. Which car? Which way? How? Where? Questions all around. Who can solve them? We'll see on the racetrack.
    And one more and much less happy question to clear: how to rework the Endurance Bonus to prevent it screwing up the whole season. I hate to do this on the second last track of the season, but it needs to be done. Need your help - see the other newspost for details.
  • Zak McKracken
    let's update!
  • Zak McKracken
    update done, track available.
  • Zak McKracken
    I mean NOW available :smiley:
  • CTG
    Two tile trick should be forbidden.
  • CTG
    Aaaaaah, nice!
  • CTG
    Now really... this kind of dual way cut makes no sense.
  • AbuRaf70
    Zak... Muchas gracias por el elogio... trabaj mucho, por ello, tus palabras son el mejor premio...
  • Zak McKracken
    consider it forbidden.
    All: You are not allowed to go in reverse direction on this track. See
    See this thread for explanation and details: Dual-way misery
  • CTG
    Wise and fast decision, thank you! Please reset the scoreboard. :cheesy:
  • Zak McKracken
    Track will be reissued in a few minutes!!!!

Nov 2

  • CTG
    Btw nice track
  • Zak McKracken
    Track changes and reissued, please download again and start over. The statement still applies: you cannot go reverse direction on this track.
  • Alan Rotoi
    About winning replay, Dup, I love that trick in the second loop. Very nice! Congrats!
  • Renato Biker
    Congrats, DD, very nice replay! :wink:
  • Duplode
    A huge THANK YOU to Renato for the incredibly awesome duel! I will remember the "Stunts truco" at Z135 as a high point :cheesy: Congratulations to AbuRaf too for the podium! Now I'm off to watch the replays - specially yours, Rotoi :wink:
  • Alan Rotoi
    Mine is not impressive, it lacks much RH.
  • Renato Biker
    We can or not cut corners?
  • CTG
    Just to clarify: dual-way switch is allowed unless you use the two-tile cut (and drive in 'Wrong Way')?
  • dreadnaut
    I'm following "You are still forbidden to drive in reverse direction"
  • CTG
    Acura seems to be promising.
  • CTG
    I don't drive in reverse direction. 90 is a different thing. :cheesy:
  • CTG
    I like how this race started. Stormy, huh?
  • Duplode
    33.10 - 34.80 in Renato's Z135 replay :O It would make a great .gif avatar :cheesy:
  • Zak McKracken
    all replays currently on scoreboard are valid.
  • Duplode
    And some of them involve way-switching, I presume? (Asking the obvious for perfect clarity.)
  • CTG
    Stupid question, stupid answer: NO :cheesy:
  • SuperBrian
    Is it forbidden to drive in reverse direction or not? I allways thought that all dualway-switching was allowed in Zakstunts, just that you add penalty-time if you get some?
  • CTG
    Welcome back, Brian! :wink:
  • SuperBrian
    Thanks. Unfortunately (thinking of the new EB-rules)I really lacked time and motivation this summer - not what I expected when the season started. Finally I had problems with my computer last month, so I had to find another one with DOS-system - [I think DOSbox sucks].
  • CTG
    DAMAGE POWER!
  • Renato Biker
    Zak, my replay with Acura is valid?
  • CTG
    RB: probably yes.

Nov 3

  • Renato Biker
    Why, almost everything is valid? :smiley:
  • CTG
    Nope, but dual-way switch is.
  • Renato Biker
    I hope this is valid. :smiley:
  • CTG
    No, it's not. :cheesy:

Nov 4

  • Renato Biker
    hahahaha
  • CTG
    why don't you fuck yourself? :tongue:
  • CTG
    sorry, i'm drunk
  • Renato Biker
    running around a table? :tongue:
  • CTG
    Since one of my hands is fixed to the table...
  • Alan Rotoi
    Acura again FTW!!
  • Zak McKracken
    Renato: confirmed valid :smiley:
  • Renato Biker
    :cheesy: Thanks, Zak.
  • Duplode
    Damn! So close :cheesy:

Nov 5

  • CTG
    Damn! Almost so close! :cheesy:
  • CTG
    Daniel? Renato? Jacob? Ivn? :cheesy:
  • CTG
    The winner will reach powergear at the beginning of the banked road. And will be able to complete the whole switch in powergear (lucky case, touching the cork in the perfect moment with the sliding car).
  • CTG
    (---> winning time: 33.00)
  • CTG
    Or even better.
  • CTG
    Btw damned good track!
  • AbuRaf70
    Feliz cumple, Alan...!!!
  • Chulk
    It's The Master's B-day! Congrats, Alan!!
  • Friker
    Happy Birthday, Alan!
  • Alan Rotoi
    Thank you guys! If it's an acura race I'll join :smiley:
  • SuperBrian
    Happy birthday Alan!
  • Duplode
    Happy birthday, Don Rotoi!
  • Duplode
    Default with Acura, that's what it is.

Nov 6

  • Alan Rotoi
    Like default, really? :sad: Sounds boring... I'll try anyway!
  • Duplode
    Well... it is not as flat as Default :cheesy:
  • Duplode
    For a more optimistic comparison, the obvious racing line makes me think of USL powergear tracks.
  • Alan Rotoi
    What is USL?
  • Alan Rotoi
    Unskilled Stunts League!

  • CTG
    somebody should send something
  • Alan Rotoi
    nah

  • CTG
  • SuperBrian
    Haha, I would like to see that airplane in the loop!
  • CTG
    It's better not to see. :grin:

Nov 12

  • CTG
    Brian: check the forum (Stunts Fun Pics)!

Nov 14

  • Duplode
    Okay, okay; that's enough hibernation for the month :wink:
  • CTG
    Finally. :tongue:
  • Alan Rotoi
    IMO this kind of track is only for pro racers. Dual way is a big deal for competitions.
  • dreadnaut
    As a noob-who-has-read-the-wiki, I went for dual way the moment I saw the track, trying a few combinations. As usual, I find more difficult handling in powergear, to complete in a decent time with the Acura.

Nov 15

  • CTG
    Whoops

Nov 17

  • CTG
    dreadnaut: there's only one way. I mean only one GOOD way.
  • CTG
    Btw I can't find motivation to improve.
  • dreadnaut
    I'm sure I'll find the GOOD one, I just have to go through all the others first :smiley:

Nov 18

  • Friker
    Hello, dreadnaut. Good job with your time. It's nice to see a new and good racer. :smiley:
  • dreadnaut
    Thanks and... darn! Now I have to drive 0.10 faster :-o

Nov 19

  • Friker
    omg what's the point of this track? :-/
  • SuperBrian
    I think it's one the best tracks in a long time - short, difficult and open for new tricks.
  • Friker
    Yes, this is a good one, but still it is annoying. I drove 54s with acura but with 18s penalty. :-/ And I'm not sure I drove the best line..
  • Friker
    Ok, it is viable. :smiley:

Nov 21

  • dreadnaut
    :sbonk: :sbonk: :sbonk: :sbonk: :sbonk:
  • Friker
    CTG, do you use a helicopter trick in your sent replay?
  • SuperBrian
    I don't. I use a flying carpet.

Nov 22

  • Friker
    :cheesy: It will be funny if dreadnaut do it. :smiley:
  • dreadnaut
    I can't wait for November to end.
  • Friker
    Hiding a winning replay in your pocket? Please, forget to send it. :wink:

Nov 23

  • dreadnaut
    Consider it forgotten!

Nov 25

  • SuperBrian
    Happy birthday Goblin. :cheesy:

  • dstien
    _ff.

Nov 28

  • dreadnaut
    Every time I come back home, the dog in the apartment in front of mine comes to the door, and from behind it barks. I realized today that it sounds like it's saying "bff", and if I answer "bff" myself it shuts up.
  • SuperBrian
    And the dog was called CTG.
  • CTG
    As far as I know, Mr. Osuna is the only dog in this community.
  • SuperBrian
    :-o How could I forget? - Maybe by taking a look on the scoreboard - Where is he?
  • dstien
    Who's laughing now, dreadnut?
  • dreadnaut
    Laughing? I've been crying half of this month trying to close a decent lap, and still haven't managed to :|
  • Friker
    dreadnaut - want to form a team for next season(s)?

Nov 29

  • CTG
    So predictable...
  • Friker
    what?
  • CTG
    You must be clever enough to find it out without any hints.
  • CTG
    Btw Rotoi is hiding.
  • dreadnaut
    @Friker: alright! @CTG: I might know what you mean, but you should tell zaq to fix it.
  • dreadnaut
    Argh, I'm an idiot! Can you remove my 40.53 replay, which comes with a bunch of penalty seconds, and replace it with this?
  • dreadnaut
    Damn, I send the wrong replay :| Forget that 40.53, it comes with *minutes* of penalty time iirc.
  • dreadnaut
    Ok, now I know that I don't know how this submission stuff is supposed to work.
  • Friker
    well, "quiet days" aren't that quiet, are they? :-/ there is a very wierd system to manage uploaded hidden replays.. dreadnaut - 1. ok, so persuade duplode (or BJ or Renato Biker or .. CTG?) that Cork is a loser which gave him only false fame and together we will rule. :wink: 2. this could be probably first final replay with a penalty :smiley: CTG - pretend that you don't know about my replay and don't post anything better. :wink:
  • SuperBrian
    I guess I'll end up in the back of the bunch..
  • dreadnaut
    Whoo, my wrong replay magically disappeared! Thanks Zak!
  • CTG
    Friker: what are you talking about? :cheesy:
  • Friker
    ... :-/ :smiley:

Nov 30

  • CTG
    After 40 minutes of dead tries I give up. Congrats to Friker in advance!
  • Friker
    i've got only 53,35 :sad:
  • Friker
    but i am happy i forced you to improve :wink:
  • CTG
    Hahaha, yes, I believe you! :cheesy:
  • CTG
    (I spent the last few hours with our opposition's lawyers. It seems they really lie even when they ask something.)
  • CTG
    Btw Friker: I guess there were already some replays with penalty time in ZakStunts history (for example Oligoway in 2006).
  • SuperBrian
    That was my first race in the Stunts Community. :cheesy:
  • Friker
    ok, i lie a lot, but 53,35 is true information. :wink:
  • dreadnaut
    Or maybe... you keep mistyping 35,35?
  • Alan Rotoi
    I won Act02 with 8 secs penalty
  • Friker
    what is act02 and how you can gain 8 secs penalty (i think only 3K are possible)?
  • Duplode
    Finally! I wouldn't like to miss what seems to be a great finish :wink:
  • Friker
    Ouch! I wished SB has won. :sad: But congrats Duplode, I'm looking forward to see your replay :smiley:
  • CTG
    ACT was the secondary competition of ZakStunts 2003. Track's were made by Akoss Poo, winner of Track Designing Contest 2002.
  • CTG
    Btw expect a new shot from Biker and Rotoi.
  • CTG
    Final shot.
  • CTG
    Before anybody says I send it too late: I've sent it already earlier.
