I might be confused about the format, but I know for sure I like to drive karts.  Just say when Ex and I will be there. 

I don't however have a team...

lol you're probably not the only one.

main thing is that you show up and drive your arse off.  participants will start to gain a better understanding of format as we begin and see it in action.

you may have a team now... PM'ing you over at stgt to work out the details...

Sundays after 7 would be fine, because Mazda tries to get done before then.

I take my life a quarter mile at a time.

is that Eastern?  I should clarify that I'll be listing everything in Eastern Time but most people do that anyways

For those who have said they can do Sundays, would Mondays also work?

Yes eastern, and Mondays will also work, but I do not wish to be up too late playing.

okay I'd say that's somewhat of a consensus that Sundays are the race days.

thanks.

Just wanted to get back to you about the XMB message...

The texting there is a pain and PM's will be MIA with the change over, so I thought this might be safer.

I did some tests with the item you mentioned and have a few for you to look at.

I used the following as a template, so if anything seems off just let me know and I can adjust for it.

--First was making sure the last turns to the straight weren't deadly.

--Avoiding extreme off camber corners. (...based it me on being able to carry speed, if I couldn't, it didn't fly...)

--Avoid Karts getting air at critical times, like when they need to be turning. Airtime that was controllable I left alone.

--Make it challenging to carry momentum to succeed and a challenge to protect the sprinter/twisty front runner.

--The absolute need to draft as a team and work together, both to move and to protect the leader.

--Make a controllable setting, yet allow a little bit of that "ragged edge" available for someone who can use it.

--Allow that someone to be able to maintain advantage for a time, but not indefinitely.

I have three to test, when time allows some time on track with you to compare notes it would be good. They were Ok for single, but the draft needs to be checked just to be sure. I don't see any issue, but you never know. If Eiger works though, they should be fine.

thanks bud.  yea I'd be curious to see how smooth you got them.  my main issue wasa that with mt. aso I was looking to make a challenging track with tight corners and some drastic elevation changes.  other template locations allow that with a smoother stitching together of the pieces of track, while arse-oh doesn't smooth out the bits of track.

there are t hree main types of track to be used in this tour.

category 1, straightest, best for sprinting etc.

category 2, nice mix of the two

category 3, pretty tough to extremely tough.

I was looking for mt. aso to be pretty tough, though we have Eiger Nordwand and some others that fit the bill too.  I had wanted that "approaching the mountains" feeling for the visual effect and producing videos from replays.

could you share one of your test subjects up on your account for me to grab?

lata!
