  1. Well, that didn't last long. 1st stage went OK. 2nd stage I slipped off the outside of a hairpin left (I hate hairpins) and got high-centered on the snowbank. I did what I usually do in such circumstance in real life, switching from forward to reverse while rocking the wheels. And after a bit of that, it said I was disqualified. End of event. Oh well. You all will have to do without crawfish this time ๐Ÿ˜‰
  2. Thanks for the info. I was just going by the number of bars in durability shown in the game. Hards have all 3, mediums have 2, softs and wets have 1. Also, I was kinda roleplaying with this. But if there's no rule against going with whatever works, then I'll downsize my tires from here on ๐Ÿ™‚ Ahem. I only barely kissed the walls twice. Unless you consider ALL my driving 1 big mistake start-to-finish, with which I'd agree ๐Ÿ˜„
  3. I'm really confused about tires. I read about how they don't wear out as fast as they should so it's OK to use soft (or wet, which has the same low durability as soft). But I haven't played enough to really have a feel for it yet, and I'm trying to minimize risk in this thing, so I'm going conservative. I did all the long stages on hards. Didn't notice any real difference in grip between dry and wet roads, no doubt because I don't drive fast enough ๐Ÿ˜„ But I did use wets for the final, short stage.
  4. Yay, you made it! Still some crawfish left, don't know about the beer. What tire compound did you use? Do you think it might just have worn out after 3 stages?
  5. Yay! Just in time for the 2nd batch of crawfish, which is an order of magnitude spicier than the 1st. Hope you brought some beer ๐Ÿ™‚
  6. No problems this evening at all, during times when for the last couple days I've had major connection problems. Thanks for the hard work.
  7. I believe everything my codriver says even when I misunderstand, don't understand, or just didn't listen because I was dealing with the cascading consequences of a previous misunderstanding. I'm crazy that way. So when this happens, it's all his fault, obviously ๐Ÿ˜„. To get back at him, I tell him some line of BS. And because we're obligate symbiotes, he believes everything I say, even when it's total BS. He's stupid that way ๐Ÿ˜„
  8. YAY! Hope you like crawfish and brought some beer ๐Ÿ™‚
  9. That's a good rule--I see the logic of it-- and it makes me feel better ๐Ÿ˜‰ I'm not playing to win, I'm here for the camaraderie and just hoping to survive and gradually get better over a long period of time. Besides, I missed the 1st 1/3 or so of the season anyway. While I've got your attention, I want to thank you personally for all your excellent set-up and other tutorial videos. They've been a big help to me. Please make more ๐Ÿ™‚
  10. It's a real shame about the servers. They're going up and down at irregular intervals. so it's all luck of the draw if they happen to be up when you've got the time to play. I was lucky on the timing so got to do this event, but others won't be able to through no fault of their own, which is disappointing for everybody, not just those directly impacted. How can I see just how bad I am if most drivers can't play? ๐Ÿ˜„ The really disappointing thing, however, is that if the servers keep enough people out of this event, I might get some points by default, which I would feel like I stole. S
  11. I've decided I quite like the old Legacy RS.. Quick, responsive, works in all conditions and on all surfaces, and VERY forgiving of noob hamhandedness. But those headlights.... ๐Ÿ˜„
  12. I should have mentioned this already but my results are showing under my Steam name, which is "Bullethead". Somebody on these forums already took that name, though, so that's why I'm "BayouRally" here. Anyway, by about 1800 US CDT, I was FINALLY able to get into the club and complete the last 4 stages of Spain so I am "awaiting results" with an intact car. And the leaderboard still shows me as the only entrant, so I'm still #1. Yay me! Of course, my time is VERY slow so EVERYBODY else will knock me down a peg until I settle out at the bottom. All in all, I was pretty happy with the
  13. Update for this evening. PC, Steam, Viasat internet, US CDT. Starting about 1730, things began improving. I was able to actually see the list of challenges and careers in events, and even open them, tune the, car, and do shakedowns. But I would lose connection when trying to start an event. This even got me a DNF in the daily in Sweden. But by about 1800, things had gotten pretty well sorted and I did a different daily, then did 4 stages to finish a 7-stage event in my club. Then came back and did the Delta Daily as well. Thanks CM for getting this sorted in time for me to enjoy pa
  14. Not anticipating how bad things will get before they happen seems to be a common human trait all over the world, not just at CM. #pandemic So, I can't really single out CM in this regard ๐Ÿ™‚ As we say in my business, "Preparations for the next disaster will begin as soon as possible after it has occurred" ๐Ÿ˜
