Some hosts start it quickly to keep the room racing regardless of racers.  Other hosts like to get a full room and will wait until they get enough people to warrant starting the race.

 

And then there are just some hosts who have simply been abducted by aliens and let the timer count all the way to 0 despite having a completely full (or nearly full) room...

I second that! If you're a noob, and you're hosting please go ahead and start the race if you have 10 or so people. There's no sense in letting the clock run out if you have a full room. It's frustrating and a waste of time for the other players. If you're not comfortable hosting, simply exit the room then log back in. The room will automatically choose a new host once you leave. Also, I entered several rooms last night with non-starter hosts. If you're going to leave, for whatever reason, please LOG OFF or exit to the server lobby! Even if you're not hosting. If the host leaves, the server may pick you to become the host even if you're a non-starter. If you're not around then everyone else in the room is resigned to racing the last track the previous host picked over and over and over again. I really hope that in the next update, Evos will make it so that you can't have a non-start host or that if someone is a non-starter for two or so races, the system automatically boots them from the room. Thanks and see you on the track!

Everyone, thanks for the warm welcome!  Sorry for all the errors in the guide, I've updated it and fixed most of the mentioned errata.  The updates include:

Changes to grammatical errors and typos of the entire document.

Changes to the 'Playstation Forums Races' section (corrected Hosts and Friends request)

Changes to the 'Best Vehicles to Use' section (added more vehicles)

Updated 'Best Paths' section (with link to USMSL videos)

New 'Winning in Offline' section

 

Thanks for all the constructive criticism to really make this guide great.

On a separate note, I have been thinking of changing the title of the guide.  If anyone has any ideas, comments, or suggestions, please reply.

Also, I was thinking of adding a USMSL section.  I was wondering if anyone would like to write something about it, because I'm sure someone actually in the league could write something much more informative than I could.

This was a problem in NASCAR 2003 for the PC.  Essentially intentional wreckers.  Papyrus included a feature to vote someone out (never used by drivers) but if there was a server admin in the room, they could still be booted.
 
Is there a provision for ejecting people like this from a race?


Unfortunately, there is not a feature like this yet in Motorstorm.  However, if you have a mic, calling someone out usually bothers them enough to leave.
 
And to elcheapo: Yes, it is my name
 
And to Tool_Minion:  I'm glad this guide has helped you, as I hope it will for many others.  Just so you know, the Best Vehicles section has been slighly updated with some other vehicle options thanks to plong.
 
Thanks again to everyone for all your support, and remember, if you have any ideas at all, just post!
