  • WhoHasTheLongestName
    hey
  • Zak McKracken
    scoreboard final, unconfirmed. Confirmed results and new track out in a few days...
  • Zak McKracken
    track prepared, update tonight or the day after
  • Alan Rotoi
    Today is La Popis Birthday, the only real person that has a birthday today.
  • Bonzai Joe
    There are some great cars coming up in the bonuses now. I guess I'll have to race again.
  • Friker
    wow i am looking forward to see Duplode's replay :smiley:

Mar 2

  • An awesome battle on ZCT127, great activity, battles, smoking tires and drama. That's the way I like it!
    And at the end something special - a time warp? A leap jump? What did Duplode do overtake all the rest by almost 4 seconds? Well, check out his replay and you will know - a replay truly worth to enter the ZakStunts hall of fame and a real proof of a double champion who should not be messed with!
    Our veteran, Bonzai Joe came on the second place - bringing undisputed virtue for Cork on ZCT127.
    CTG finished third, but again dominated the battle for the leading time - so is close to Duplode in overall classification.
    And Friker is also close, with clean lines and good performance! Will he be soon able to earn a place on the podium?
    Maybe on ZCT128! Spring is here, speed is here. Make sure to wear your helmet, 200mph and above is not a joke! The car - your choice again. I think this time the choice depends on your skills. Experiment and decide. And don't forget to have fun!
    See you on the scoreboard in April!
  • Bonzai Joe
    That's a great, classic, end of the month Stunts feeling. I've had some exhilarating moments with winning replays, especially Ayrton's. Sometimes it's been like watching unreal acrobats throwing firesticks to each other.
  • Zak McKracken
    let's update! :smiley:
  • CTG
    One of best races in the last few years. The track was weak mediorce, but I liked the battles very much. Friker is getting more and more dangerous.
  • Duplode
    Yeah - flaming, provocations *and* hard racing; that's how a month should be like :wink: And BTW: Long Live Cork!
  • Bonzai Joe
    Who knows what Friker could have achieved if he was in a good team. Maybe we should take a look at the team structure here... :-S
  • Zak McKracken
    update done, track available!
  • CTG
    Erm... Damage Inc. is a better place for Friker. On one hand, Super Brian is a strong and friendly teammate. On the other hand, Töff brings us Frech virgins every week. :cheesy:
  • Zak McKracken
    there is no better place the backroom of than Cork's private mansion, the place where we usually rest after races like this :smiley:
  • CTG
    GTO track
  • CTG
    (with right corners, fvck off Zak :cheesy:)
  • Alan Rotoi
    Before every track I "read" it and I try to find what's the best car. I just say: "Those buildings" xD
  • Gutix
    Excellent replay Duplode! Congratulations for the z127 victory, and congrats for the podiumers too.
  • CTG
    Listfiller.
  • CTG
    DAMN, this one was an unfinished... no problem, still no LTB counting.
  • Bonzai Joe
    Good job Duplode! About number 128: it sure looks like a GTO PG-exercise. But who will have the stamina to go through with that on such a long track?
  • CTG
    Please delete the former one.
  • Alan Rotoi
    I think the same BJ, without any test. Lancia seems a good candidate, but I'll try PG first as always :smiley:
  • Friker
    ok.. how is 2:03 with P962 done? O.o what about upload it to stuntschallenge? :tongue:
  • CTG
    Friker: easily.

Mar 3

  • CTG
    But you mustn't waste your time on P962...
  • Friker
    i know it will be GTO, that's why i'm asking for it.
  • Duplode
    Thanks guys! On 2^7 & P962: 2:00-ish is not difficult; my opening lap was done with small amounts of RH (for such a long track, and for someone allergic to IMSA) and nothing really fancy save for a minor lucky moment in one of the cuts - discount that and you get your 2:03.
  • Duplode
    (Oh, and thank heavens for such considerations being merely academical. I do feel much more comfortable with delegating IMSA racing on such a track to stuntschallenge...)
  • Duplode
    LOL, same corrected time with P962 and Lancia o_O
  • Gagarin
    very long way, i not like it
  • Alan Rotoi
    Don't give up Gagarin, you are a very good racer. I Already saw dup's zct127 replay, very nice trick in the ice corner. I never thought about such a trick. Congrats again!
  • Friker
    my poor try

Mar 4

  • Gagarin
    A lot of corners, it struggled with it
  • Duplode
    Public service announcement:
  • Friker
    :sad:

Mar 5

  • Shorty
    0.1 pts. I'm coming -_-
  • Shorty
    You should stop when it is best...or how ever this is said in English :cheesy: I'm a noob
  • Bonzai Joe
    A question for CTG: Why do you make ghosts? You don't have to answer publicly, just think about it for yourself.
  • Bonzai Joe
    Also, if Gagarin is a ghost, and he does not stop "racing" right now, I will advocate a permanent ban of CTG from Zakstunts, and of installing newbie registration procedures to determine racer identities.

Mar 6

  • Friker
    another fail.. seems i am sitting in lancia this race :-/
  • Duplode
    Friker: I would understand you if we were on the final week, but it is way too early in the month for that :smiley: Have you ever raced in a PG speedway before?
  • Friker
    nope, but i think i'm missing something, probably some knowledge which shortcuts i can do and which i cannot. another fail; every car is new for me because i've never raced before (ok 2 tracks in 2009) - so this race isn't "a GTO PG-exercise" but "a big school of a PG technique". i'm quite desperated. :smiley:
  • Friker
    btw CTG where is your analysis? :smiley:
  • Bonzai Joe
    Basically if it seems like it might be possible somehow to get through a track part in power gear if you do some strange turns, that means it's a power gear part. Generally the only thing that can stop your PG-rampage is water.
  • CTG
    It wasn't as tight as expected, so it's useless to make it. And I'm also quite busy now.
  • CTG
    Btw this one will go to Duplode for sure. GTO, powergear... Not my cup of tea. And thinking on the job interviews of the next few weeks, it's very likely to finish only 8th or worse.
  • Duplode
    Trying to remember which was my first race requiring non-Indy PG madness. I think it was Visegrad, which was nearly a year after I joined... Back then Indy races were far more common than nowadays, so the PG learning curve was a bit different (and maybe less steep).
  • Gutix
    PG-rampage , LOL

Mar 7

  • CTG
    Whatever happens, I'll use the IMSA.

Mar 8

  • CTG
    It's nice to see Usrin as a regular racer again. Argammon and Akoss Poo should also come back.

Mar 9

  • Usrin
    An Indy lap, just for fun (& for testing what happens if I send a worse time to scoreboard).
  • CTG
    Indy and fun in the same sentence?!?!? :cheesy:
  • Usrin
    Btw, I miss Mingva from your list of racers who should come back. :wink:
  • Duplode
    But Mingva is still around! He races as "Paradisio" nowadays :smiley:
  • CTG
    It wasn't a full list. I should say a lot more names: the Dutch Alcoholics (wheeeee ^_^), Bismarck, Diesel Joe, Juank23, Pershing II, Leo Ramone, Roy Wiegerinck, Ben Snel...
  • Usrin
    Diesel Joe is probably drinking. :smiley:

Mar 10

  • CTG
    Quick test lap with Lancia.
  • Bonzai Joe
    noRH...
  • CTG
    quite a good one

Mar 11

  • Thanks to Duplode's hard work the updated version of the Stunts competition archive is now available on ZakStunts. It contains 643 tracks and 569 replays - quite awedome, isn't it?
    Head to the downloads page to fetch it, or simply click here :)
  • Duplode
    Hey look, a NoRH scoreboard :wink: http://www.stuntschallenge.net/showtrack?track=ZCT128
  • CTG
    DUP: Thanks for the "advice"! The first 25 seconds of my noRH lap is faster than my hotlap on ZCT128 scoreboard. :cheesy:

Mar 12

  • Duplode
    You're welcome, I guess. Facepalm :smiley:
  • Friker
    exactly - one facepalm for you duplode :wink:
  • Friker
    are these best you can do? O.o :tongue:
  • Bonzai Joe
    Oooh, hello there!
  • Friker
    /flame flame/ CTG's style: an academic BÖÖÖÖÖÖÖÖFF :tongue: /stop flaming/ hello, i hope ill last until midnight at least :smiley:
  • CTG
    Shall I let him lead?

Mar 13

  • Duplode
    Yeah! Ride the wave, Friker! [And of course, brace yourself for the next big one :wink:]

Mar 14

  • Alan Rotoi

Mar 16

  • Duplode
    And Shorty joins the pack :smiley:
  • Duplode
    ...and now, your turn, gentlemen.

Mar 17

  • Friker
    do you think it's good enough? /paraphrasing pink floyd :smiley: /
  • Duplode
    Not bad, not bad at all!
  • Duplode
    Come in here dear boy have a cigar / You're gonna go far - :wink:
  • Friker
    you're nearly a laugh, but you're really a cry :tongue:
  • Shorty
    Thanks Duplode. Now I have that song in my head again. I'm proud to drive my times without great shortcuts, but I'm not fast with this strategy :cheesy:

    drunk,,, again

Mar 22

  • Duplode
    It's news to me that ghosts can get drunk! But then it might be just CTG's ghosts =D
  • Duplode
    (...though there was an old custom here of, when drinking cachaça, leaving "a sip for the saint". That's another class of spirit though :cheesy:)

Mar 24

  • Friker
    i think you should not post your replays to stuntschallange.net before deadline.. BUT after deadline's bells ring it could be nice to store them in that place.

Mar 28

  • Alan Rotoi
    I miss the times I was barely superior of Skid.

Mar 29

  • dstien
    List feeler.
  • Friker
    talkin' about "good old times" - this replay is driven as well as we can with our (i & friend) version of stunts and our rules - we cannot change a car or an opponent's car because of a bad version of stunts (corrupted car's files) and the only stunt that could be ommited was that wierd elevated cork. also we race NoRH (because of scoreboard driven times count). aha - one mistake - we raced with an opponent (usually Skid). you can see this replay at stuntschallenge.

  • SuperBrian
    Due to lack of time; here is a listfiller. Maybe I can improve tomorrow, but I don't think I have the time. I'll try to be more active next month.

Mar 31

  • Friker
    at least ill gain LTB points :smiley:

Jump to a different month
