  • Pipsqueaks, thank you! This race was a pleasure to watch. 60 replays were sent throughout the month, on the final scoreboard 8 racers are within a 4 seconds margin, considering original time driven (less than 2% variation!). Lively forum, great battles, excellent times. Thanks!
    Though there was someone again who did something different than the rest. Yep, Renato Biker - securing his first place and also +2LTB. Second came fellow teammate Friker with a pretty strong time, third Duplode, overtaking CTG by 5 milliseconds to fetch the last place of the podium. Congratulations! I am sure this track would be worth a nice analysis.
    Obviously the Yellow Fleas scored the most points as a team - the result is a very promising battle between three teams, with Cork's Crew chasing them a bit behind on place four.
    It's early to speak about seasonal standings, but so far the battle seems interesting, with no clearly dominating racers.
    On to March and the new track... We approached the month in the shadow of the LM002: Some racers were guessing odds for which car to use and many of you seem to prefer avoiding the LM002 as a plague. Well, we could have had a track balanced well enough to allow another car to be used. But then I thought why not to make an enjoyable - and challenging - track for the LM002 and get over it?
    Sure, it's slow and can be boring sometimes. But with such racer activity as seen on ZCT139, I don't think we will be bored. It will be a tight race - a battle for milliseconds and perferct driving lines perhaps? Or is there a trick that will define the winner? In any case, newbies and newcomers, this track calls for you! This is your best chance to grab a nice position - you don't need hard to learn tricks, just decent driving. Or half-decent at least. .. :)
    Sure, you can try other cars too. The freedom is yours at ZakStunts. Could it be worth it? Check yourself, but even though the jeep seems slow, it can go up to 130MPH. So... fasten your seatbelt!
  • Zak McKracken
    this is an unconfirmed final scoreboard and a very good race. Update tonight CN time!
  • CTG
    At least we won't have Audi in the next half year. :cheesy:
  • Duplode
    Nice that you can see the bright side even with such an anti-CTG podium :cheesy: Congratulations to the Fleas for getting an 1-2 in their second race!
  • Alan Rotoi
    Hey if there is an anti-CTG podium I should be there! ^_^.
  • CTG
    why don't you all maker a huge anti-ctg alliance? wait, i know! it already exists!
  • CTG
    -r
  • Alan Rotoi
    ooooooh give me a hug :cheesy:
  • Zak McKracken
    lets validate those replays and update :smiley:
  • Zak McKracken
    scoreboard confirmed, update pending...
  • Zak McKracken
    update done, track available!
  • Alan Rotoi
    Nice! Thank you Zak!
  • Alan Rotoi
    I hate LM002 :sad:
  • CTG
    make a slower one!
  • CTG
    1:12.17 seems to be a nice result for a triple draw. Is there anybody to join? :cheesy:
  • Chulk
    First try, pretty slow
  • CTG
    The track itself is not that bad. But the car makes it extremely boring...
  • Alan Rotoi
    Yeah, not tricky track this month. I'll fix it for April ^_^.
  • Alan Rotoi
    Anyway is like you said, it's about the car. I tried for first time McLaren and GT3... I like the idea of Mclaren but too buggy and GT3 is annoying and buggy :S. I fear GT3 takes relevance next month.
  • Alan Rotoi
    "Shortcut found" says the announcer.
  • Chulk
    A bit better...
  • Alan Rotoi
    CTG send me your replay and I'll send you April's track :O
  • Alan Rotoi
    Kidding of course :tongue:

Mar 2

  • CTG
    Rotoi: what kind of shortcut?
  • Alan Rotoi
    I don't know, ask the announcer :O
  • Alan Rotoi
    Oh God, I'm so tired... and I have a lot of things to do yet!
  • Friker
    just to piss you off :wink:
  • Duplode
    Alan: I don't think GT3 will stand a chance next month, as 25% bonus should not be enough to catch Countach at 40%. The outside bets would be Lotus (in a rally track) or GTO (in a pure PG speedway), and even these look very unlikely.
  • Alan Rotoi
    Enough! I don't want more work this night :cheesy:
  • Alan Rotoi
    Ok Dup, I'll start the track later then.
  • CTG
    Chulk, Friker: do you like the current graphical scoreboard? :cheesy:
  • Chulk
    Chilling in a Limo, bro!
  • dreadnaut
    There. I felt lonely back there on the wrong car.
  • dreadnaut
    Oh my... I drove again with the Lotus and *did not notice*. so that's why I managed to jump on the bridge O_O
  • Duplode
    Hint: the bridge jump appears to require less luck if you do it in fourth gear rather than in fifth with low revs.

Mar 3

  • Chulk
    Hint2: Remember lm002 jumps higher (or longer) if you steer a bit before the jump
  • CTG
    4x hours without me and Rotoi is leading? NONSENSE!!! :cheesy:
  • CTG
    luckily I have no mood now to race (and liver either, as i' m drunk again)

Mar 4

  • Alan Rotoi
    Since when I haven't 1 leading hour? xD
  • CTG
    kss p s th lst! sckr! :tongue:
  • Akoss Poo
    :-P
  • Akoss Poo
    first quick try
  • CTG
    it's not really a first try if you already know the driving lines... :tongue:
  • CTG
    Akoss Poo is slow!
  • CTG
    the annoying orange is back
  • Alan Rotoi
    Send your best time :cheesy:
  • CTG
    nope :tongue:
  • Alan Rotoi
    coward (?)
  • CTG
    dog :tongue:

Mar 5

  • Chulk
    I got your back, Alan. Don't worry!
  • CTG
    Whohooooo, Argentina's no. 4. at the top. :tongue:
  • CTG
    (1 ayrton, 2 gutix, 3 rotoi)
  • CTG
    Whohohoooo, Hungary's no. 2. is already 4th! :tongue: :cheesy:
  • CTG
    tell me, iván: what's your best at the moment?
  • Alan Rotoi
    angry? mad? scared? cornered? Your choice.
  • CTG
    :tongue:
  • Alan Rotoi
    oh nice, nice... but too slow yet :smiley:
  • Chulk
    I knew you had better!!
  • Alan Rotoi
    Of course he had. He's an open book :cheesy:
  • CTG
    oh really? :tongue:
  • CTG
    come on meganiums, you can do it better... not as good as the loopings, but still...
  • Chulk
    This is getting interesting...
  • ADPunk
    Ok this is imposible
  • ADPunk
    and boring
  • Alan Rotoi
    So predictable :smiley:
  • Alan Rotoi
    You'll race AND cry a lot this month, we must be prepared :cheesy:
  • Alan Rotoi
    Yeah ADPunk, it's a shitty car, but the track is fun.
  • Chulk
    51362b27ec2ea.jpg
  • dreadnaut
    @ADPunk: took me three days to get through the jump! keep 4th gear all along the dirt corners and you can do it!
  • Chulk
    Also try to come from the right and steer a bit left just before jumping, it helps a lot. And keep the car over 90mph
  • Alan Rotoi
    The best advise I can tell is: Join a team!
  • CTG
    that's all, silver man? :tongue:
  • CTG
    let's finish the kidplay
  • Chulk
    Damn, I had this and thought it would be enough. This live LT fight is fun!!
  • CTG
    keep trying, i'm bored enough in the track to ignore it for a week
  • CTG
    (böff)
  • Chulk
    Almost there...
  • dreadnaut
    Just to decrease the scale of the graphical scoreboard :smiley:

Mar 6

  • CTG
    Go AbuRaf, Akoss Poo is only a bit ahead!
  • CTG
    Btw the Fleas are because Biker's computer is still calculating for the optimal replay (long lap...)
  • CTG

  • Alan Rotoi
    Kidding xD. BTW 7 seconds... I guess I won't be the winner this month :sad:
  • CTG

Mar 12

  • Alan Rotoi
    Do you know something about the shut downs of the site, Zak?
  • CTG
    When was it down? I haven't seen such a thing for ages.
  • ADPunk
    Was down for me a couple of days ago too.Maybe is a regional thing?
  • Friker
    Hungary vs. outer world? :tongue:
  • CTG
    I prefer to call you as 'the rest'. Kidding. :cheesy:
  • Alan Rotoi
    It's not the first time it happens in the last 30-40 days.

    I expect a quite balanced finish.

Mar 22

  • dreadnaut
    Yay, finally some time to start working on this track!

Mar 28

  • CTG
    I won't improve my time.
  • Friker
    blah blah blah
  • CTG
    Friker: I promise to write something else at the end of April, if you promise to choose something else than "blah blah blah" as a reaction.
  • Friker
    type what you want. I don't believe your talks.

Mar 29

  • JoSi
    Is there any video where one can see a successful corkscrew u/d jump?
  • Duplode
    @JoSi: Not a video, but I suggest you check the replays of ZCT82. I also recall Dobsina (USC 08/09), but the relevant track section was much faster.

Mar 30
