We have experienced it in Exotics series, due to mics being on and having over 12 people in the lounge. I also have had this happen to me when I joined audioinstaller's lounge a few weeks ago. My car felt like it was on ice and the brakes didn't seem to work right lol. Different connection speeds and people coming and going from lounges could be the culprit here idk.


What this guy said.

Sorry things didn't work out for you White...I'm not trying to be rude here but it would of been a little better if you just pulled off and parked it rather than drive slow in the middle of the track. Just a suggestion and please don't take it the wrong way. I hope things go better for you at Grand Valley...

 

Tonights race was a great one. Lots of good clean battles all over the track. I barely pulled out a win tonight as Gojet was gaining on me every lap coming to the finish. I was surprised that I put such a great tune together in about 30 minutes of driving the car. I guess i was lucky more than anything. Lots of fun tonight and I think the only person I touched the whole race was NoLimitBig. Sorry about the bumping, they were not intentional. I did however slow my car for a bit to give myself a small penalty. 

 

Can't wait for Grand Valley next week. The preview race was great!

Last night was a rough race.  I've never been a fan of Laguna Seca.  I somehow managed to start in 1st place, although I think it should have been 4th or 5th.  Anyway, I was able to lead for a couple of laps, and then stay with Gojet (thanks to the draft) after he passed me.  Then the problems started.  Went off and slid back on to the track, causing me to slide right in front of Wagg (sorry Wagg).  After that, I had damage as I went through the corkscrew.  I dropped from 2nd to 8th.  Anyway, I won't bore you with the details.  Several more offs throughout the race.  Glad this one is over.  Looking forward to Grand Valley.

Good race guys, grats to T on the win.

 

I made 4 mistakes last night if I remember right. I spun out at the corkscrew twice, the second time on lap 35. I had a ten second lead or so over eci and peyepete for third place and that shrunk to 4 seconds or less once I got going again. I also went into the dirt before the corkscrew on two consecutive laps, the second time Gojet passed me for second place. All in all I'm ecstatic with third.

 

Grand Valley is always a fun track, hard on the tires though.
