    How much blind luck will be needed for a proper lap so late after not racing for most of the month?

  • A draw! Such a rare event. But it happened this time, both Akoss Poo and Duplode finishing with the same time. Well, to be fair, Akoss did it first and he also secured the +2 LTB by a great margin, so he is the true winner of ZCT168. Congratulations! Still, it will be interesting to see an analysis between the two driving lines.

    Especially as we have seen three drivers finishing very close to eachother on the third to fifth places: Marco, Zak McKracken and Usrin in this order, their corrected times are 1.20 sec from each.

    Thank you Shorty for the great track! We had my son's 6th birthday this weekend so no time (again :(() for a new track, so we go retro - and rally! ZCT169 will be Corsica-1 by Krys Toff. I hope you will enjoy!

  • Zak McKracken
    quiet replays were published!
  • Shoegazing Leo
    Positive: loops. negative: Countach
  • Zak McKracken
    update done!
  • Akoss Poo
    Grats, Duplode! Very similar replays.
  • Duplode
    That's quite astonishing! Congrats to you too, Akoss. As far as damage limitation goes it has worked out rather well for me, even though one point can be quite a lot in this season... As for the replays, you seem to have managed a better landing from the loop combo. Why didn't that produce a difference? I guess only analysis will tell.

  • dreadnaut
    Thank you everyone! It's even sunny here in cold Scotland, so I'm getting the bike out!
  • dreadnaut
    But first, a rough replay!
  • PJ
    Okay, this map was a bit more difficult!

  • AbuRaf70
    Marco... Que te paso que usaste mi auto para correr...?
  • Marco
    Hi Abu.sorry i don't understand ... are you ask ing if i have used your replay?
  • AbuRaf70
    Marco... yo solo digo que usaste mi auto, porque yo el color azul lo uso desde hace 11 años que fue cuando comencé a correr, y tu, en esta carrera comenzaste con un auto color rojo y ahora usaste uno con mi color azul..
  • Marco
    Ah :smiley:.understood :smiley:).sorry, i have seen your replay and then i have pressed "restart driving" stealing the color :smiley:)
  • AbuRaf70
    OK. Marco... todo aclarado...

Aug 17

  • Marco
    Anyway I have to specify that I have bought Stunts 4d Sports Driving the same year that it came out (1990) and that I'm playing dos games since 1983. Ok, here I'm a Rookie, never plaied the RH or the trick way but I have the dos experience to choose any colors on earth ... obviously excluding the azul :smiley:)))
  • Marco
    Akoss doesn't agree to let me on the lead too much ...
  • Akoss Poo
    Well, if I were CTG or Renato Biker, you hadn't been allowed to lead more than 10 hours I think... 62 hours were a big gift in their era.
  • Marco
    Afullo disappeared from the newby league?

Aug 18

  • Zak McKracken
    yes, he joined 18 months ago so he is not a newbie anymore.

Aug 19

  • Marco
    My target was 100 hours on the top :smiley:

Aug 20

  • Shoegazing Leo
    We don't have any target, but when we'll reach this, we'll double the target.

    I'm enough old to know ... I cannot win you but it's funny :smiley:)
  • Shoegazing Leo
    The target was 100 hours and Marco reached the target and double it. Rousseffianism.

    Powers of deadline: I don't know how many quiet replays i sent. Say to me: tumblr_nqvmr3yeyD1s9ab4to1_250.gif
  • Kjotleik
    At least nobody else is driving this car. I'll get a first... I hope I remember correctly when setting penalty time to zero. How do I figure out the penalty time from the replay alone? I cannot seem to get to the Evaluation from the replay-file 8-( What is a "CTG's host?"
  • Kjotleik
    I had to try a car others are driving as well. Still last place, but at least a little better time. 8-) And I see we're two from Norway now! If I work really hard perhaps I'll be able to beat dstien... in 2025, or later 8-)
  • PJ
    mission impossible
  • Shorty
    Got a new time...but a strange replay :cheesy:

Aug 30

  • OK, this season is getting more and more amazing. Last time we had a draw, and now, WHAT??? 0.05s time difference between the winner and the second place? And a hearty battle throughout the track for the leading time, with only 12 hours as the deciding factor??? Guys, you are driving us nuts!

    And the guys are: Marco and Akoss Poo. Congratulations Akoss, this month you took it all. The top of the podium and the +2LTB. A major step towards winning the season perhaps? Well, only time (and Marco) will tell.

    On the third place: AbuRaf. He started as if on fire and finished still on fire, ahead of Duplode and a few other big names. Very strong performance, congratulations to you as well!

    Well, on the the next track! Does any of you still remember ZCT63 from 2006? The track modelled after the old BMX track in front of our apartment's window on which we had a literal live race - running. No, it's not a retro track again. I wanted to design something myself for ZCT170 (such a nice number) and remembered there is a similar BMX track a few blocks from here. So I went with the kids to bike some rounds on it a few days ago and modeled it for you. In case you wonder it is located exactly here.

    Well it's not a perfect match but a good try at least. Enjoy!

  • Duplode
    Welcome Kjotleik! The easiest way to find out penalty time for a finished replay is forwarding the tape to just before the finish and use "Continue Driving" to cross the finish line and get to the evaluation screen.
  • AbuRaf70
    FELIZ CUMPLE A CHULK Y A VAMOLOGOCOMISSO....!!!!!!
  • Duplode
    Happy birthday Chulk!
  • Shoegazing Leo
    Happy birthday, Chulk and letsgowithitnow
  • Shoegazing Leo
    I just arrived from amateur football coverage. Now... I'm waiting to the unveiling process.
  • Alan Rotoi
    Feliz cumple Chulk!! Ayer perdio injustamente Gimnasia :sad:
  • Zak McKracken
    Scoreboard final - OMG what a battle!!!!!
  • AbuRaf70
    Estoy muy contento, ya que después de 11 años de correr ininterrumpidamente, pude por fin terminar en el Podio de una competencia de Zak... Esto hace historia para mí....!!!!
  • Shoegazing Leo
    Unfortunately (for me), Usrin improved 3 seconds and finished ahead me. But, I beat dreadnaut (it was a team target) and my lap avoids to lose position to Shorty, who made a very simillar lap. The seventh place was my best final position like ZCT167. Congratulations to Marco. Very good race. A strong 2nd place and a extra LTB point.
  • Zak McKracken
    just finished designing a new track, should be up soon :smiley: This was a very nice race, congrats to all!
  • Shoegazing Leo
    Neymar Street?
  • Marco
    Wow, congrats Akoss, I checked your replay and you probably could race in 1.15.50 or better because you slow down a bit in the last part performing the entire loop. So I have nothing to recriminate about the 0.00.05 ... simply the better won with a shorter gap than it could be. Congrats to all especially my team manager Leo that has achieved a great team result. Sorry Leo , I missed the possible first victory for our team but, anyway, it would be a stolen victory. So very happy for my 2nd position with the Abu azul car :smiley:))
  • Akoss Poo
    Thanks! Probably the most exciting race of the post-CTG era. It's a pity that Duplode didn't join at his full strength.
  • Alan Rotoi
    Are you sure this is a post-CTG era?

    Woo! Well done to Aburaf! and to Akoss and Marco for giving us such a show :smiley: I wanted to make a new replay but I didn't have enough time last week, I don't think I would have reached Leo though!
  • Duplode
    Congratulations to the top 3!

  • Akoss Poo
    XYLOCAINE danger :huh?:
  • Zak McKracken
    will adjust the bonuses right away :smiley:
  • AbuRaf70
    Gracias, DUP...!!!!
  • Duplode
    Will we *ever* have a Xylocaine race? Should Zak just ban it outright, or alternatively set a month apart for it so that we brace ourselves in advance?
  • Zak McKracken
    this turns out to be quite a fun track
  • Zak McKracken
    ok why not :smiley:
