Snoooog and I were racing last night and had the pleasure of trading paint with Jmv Rce (aka - Thunder)
Probably raced about 8 or so. Quite a few races were tight.... less than 20-30 points difference between all three of us. Snooog and I traded wins. 4 races by less than 10 points. Thunder was noticeably rusty, but nice to have a great veteran back on the tracks.

Anybody else notice there are some pretty good racers out there right now.  I was in for a few a little while ago and there are some newer names that are getting some pretty good scores.

And imajoke, where have you been?  Haven't come across you in a week or so now...

Dyn, Snooog, great racing with you two tonight.  Finally just bailed, couldn't concentrate on the races and I wasn't being much in the way of competition.  I did set a new personal record for crashing into things, though.

Before I got tied up, though, Dyn, I did match my 'off-record' record on Sc Fiji, and did it from 2nd or 3rd place.  Now I have to get that base with a rookie in there.  That was a fun race.

I'll try to get on again in a little while when there are fewer distractions...

Yup, Dyn, PanOrra is definitely one of the better vets here.  Or an old one making a really quick comeback.

Just ran them 3 races, then they left.  First one on Br Egypt they placed 2nd and I placed 4th, they won by 5.  Second one on Plat Fiji, they placed 1st I placed 5th, they won by 18.  Third one on Gold Tas, they placed 1st I placed 3rd, they won by 44.  I wasn't tearing up the track, but I was doing okay for me.

And they run the vet trick of farm hard on the first lap and beeline (with some farming) on the second.  I have my guesses, but they're most likely wrong.

In any case, I enjoyed the races Pan.  You're just too good to get any competition out of this old boy... 8)

I assumed (perhaps wrongly) that PanOrra was a very smart word play on Big Air.

Agreed. Also raced Go Fast last night, around 240 wins and 1 poker win. 92K losses. Beat me on all but Bronze Scotland. His path on Bronze Scotland made me think theJude.

Hey dynamO, I was racing with Go Fast last night as well and was confused by how good they were, until RAT came back into chat and revealed that it was just him using his MATTHEW account renamed as Go Fast.

Oh, and dynamO, you should get into VC more often.  You'll find more of these things out if you do.

I've run them a few times, Rat, but didn't think they were that good.  Must have been having some off-races.  Happens to me all the time...

Jude, re the VC, i've gotten out of the habit, but I will try to jump in either Thursday or Friday night, I usually have a bit more time available then. I would definitely join for some kind of tourney.

Joom, good races, you had my number on most of them, except for that Silver Finland where everything went right for a change.

You ripped on Sil Fin, Dyn.  That's definitely one of your tracks.  The only way I can score well there is to just wander off and do odd things, have them all magically work on both laps, and still finish.  Otherwise a 240-250 base with bad placement is it for me there (which does work against slow rookies).

Other than that I just happened to be hitting things that time, it's an on or off thing for me.  Missed you in there last night with Rat, Barbie, tJ, and BA though...

Hey, I just raced XcitPup for about 45 minutes.  Real one with the full profile.  She's back.

Looked like she might have had a little ring rust, but it was great to race her again.  Hopefully she comes back to the forums, too...
