    I thought my fuel issue of fueling up was due to fact that i hadnt done pit plan? I just clicked no stops but should clicled 1 stop 0 fuel?
    Thought it started to fil up upto 100+ liters...

    Anyway not been a rf2 fan, think thrse couple events started to change my mind.

    Well ... it would be a bit boring if Ricardo is out. I really don't care so much for the championshiptitel itself. You can't do anything with it. But I do like the fight on track trying to beat the strong drivers of witch Ricardo is one. :)

    Forget about the past Ricardo, just live in the moment and then none of that shit really matters. Every race is new to me.

    I don't care about it either John... if i did i would race :)

    Talking about the past, wanna hear something funny?
    Rob might remember this

    At some point, at the site that died (RIP), started a series.. oval racing. And i thought.. cool! I'll try! I dond't know the rules, but i'll try. How hard can it be? It's not rockett science.. it's oval.. a few curvs all to the left :D.. so, i'll be fine! Just be fast and follow the pack... and whatever you may or not do, take your time and don't kill your tires in first laps!

    Qualification came... and i did a pretty good job (i finished the 4th i think)

    Race came... and I spunned in the early laps (can't remember why :rolleyes:)

    Since I lost the pack, they were going faster than me.. so, at one point they lapped me!!

    Now the funny part:
    Latter in the race, one of the guys (from the pack) spunned, the yellow flag came.. and the LUCKY DOG RULE kicked in!

    I was ordered by the game (or virtual stewards, rf2 or whatever you wanna call it) to complete 2 laps and than follow a certain car.

    Something like (follow "name" -2 laps)
    So i went by the pack once, and remember to ask myself: why is it telling me to do another lap? i only remeber being lapped once ahahahh :D

    But it didn't stop! It was either that or a DQ, so i went by them again!

    Of course, by than, i saw something was wrong (aHAHAHAH): I was in front of the race and everyone was 1 lap behind!!
    Could this be right? What if it is? I love this rule... :rolleyes:

    So, with 10 to 15 laps to finish ... even if they are faster (the pack).. i'll win
    And so i did.. I won the race!! --- pretty funny stuff :p:D

    Oh man, you should have seen the fuzz after that!
    People were very angry..
    Some, not all, called me a liar, cheater (in a direct or indirect way).. the works!

    In the end.. I was proven right, it was in fact a bug.. and since I had no TS at that time... there was nothing that they could do!
    The series master and commander decided to take the win from me... and he send me to last (well, not last because one of them had a DNF)

    If you have a series.. and the game is flawed, and that flaw has an effect in just one race, everything is flawed!
    Whatever action you may take.. won't do (neither to try fixing the past or controlling the future).

    You might say: but we are here to have fun!
    Sure, and we did .. and we will!

    The only problem I had was the steering car would not steer in to a corner I had to be doing 5mph to get round,

    After 15 minutes or so decided to pit and change tyres I had fuel set to 0 went in pit change was smooth added no fuel 5s for tyres came out did not solve my problem

    All of them.

    It was if the tyres were going off after a couple of laps very strange.

    option tires? or soft? or both?
    option does feel a bit strange until certain temps.. but after 1 lap--- they are ready to go
    it shouldn't behave like that

    could it be the server doing that?
    was it the first time it happened?

    Hi John, because of the bug in setups and fuel, I was 2 laps down before I even got started, so I got blue flags from everyone, I didn't know whether to laugh, quit or cry. I try to obey the flags so I let your shiny merc sail

    First time but I honestly can't see the server making it react like that.

    The servers are up for a long time before any race they will need to be restarted 24 hours before.

    Sometimes you lose :(, sometimes you win:).
    A win, like in the first race when should have done a drive through but didn't and the nice stewards did not take one lap off.
    Won one, lost one, now you can call it quits.
    And do not forget, it is only a game, don't take things so seriously. We are here to have fun. :D

    Well..they can keep the victory. I dont care
    I have the replay...and i had fun going from last to first
    But i did get a warning... same as others after that
    Since that race, look at replays, i did it a drive tru..twice
    And more
    The blame was on me for the crash on t1...race1..too much agressiviness people said
    By now everyone knows that the atlantic boys were playing hard...but when i first one saw it
    I was punted by them...and nothing
    I at least, in that first race, gave back the position
    Something they never did for me

    And yes...we are here to have
    And i did...and i will

    The series had a bug that messed up the will be unfair for everyone the results in the end
    SRO has no blame...i know
    But unfair nonetheless

    Looking back...after race 1 i should have quit...but i confess...i didnt want the atlantic boys to win
    That is over now
