I honestly havent been practicing, only play on Mondays nights. I just realized a couple weeks ago, I wasnt changing my tires! I thought I was going to catch you the first race on the top gear track, but when I tried to pass you I bumped myself off track and got a corner cutting penalty.

I am using a wheel, certainly adds to the fun.

I am not using my wheel either because I play online with my brother and he doesn't have one, so I don't want to hear any excuses

I used the wheel with GT4 and still have the old one, which works fine with GT5.

Wheel, me? Oh, no, no, no...

Would never even think about it...

Who would use a wheel, I mean....?

No, not me never!

Okay, maybe a little bit...

but just for the corners...

and the straight bits.

Oh, I just saw your video and website.

I just want you to know that it is considered "customary" in the M3Post GT5 league for new members to give the existing members each a new set of rims. I'd love to change it, but them's the rules. Tradition, you know...

Beat up an Englishman - Tonight at 10.30pm

Folks - we will run tonight.

I will start up at 10.30 tonight and see what the pick-up is like. If there are a bunch tuning in at 11pm, I will stay on.

As usual, I will trail the pack for most of the race to check for cheating and collect debris!

I am on tonight. I will try to make 10:30, otherwise 11:00 (east coast time). Looking forward to it as I haven't played in weeks.

Thanks again for the organization. Any wheels are well deserved

It is probably best if you follow me around the track for the first few races!

Ok - Ban the new guy.....

Looking forward to next week guys!

Had so much fun last night 'gents! I turned the traction control completely off for the 'ring - bad idea... Losing it at 160mph doesn't help turn fast times... lol.

Hope we can do it again!

It is kind of academic for you Matt, since you were banned last night.

However, we have been meeting on Monday nights at 10.30 - 11pm. We are slowly getting more and more regulars now. The Cape Ring and Top Gear test track are establishing themselves as favourites!

You should all be able to find each other in the "players met" section of the PS3 homepage so that you guys can play if I am not around.

I can't wait to get home tonight and see if my new rims have arrived!

We run once a week on Monday in Big_Brewster's lounge. I have been meaning to do some impromptu ones but have not found time. Maybe in the future.
