wow, this first generation passat actually looks cool - you cannot really tell the same on subsequent models.

I am sorry I could not race properly tonight! A BIOS and chipset driver update solved the keyboard issue (at least it seems so now) Next time count me in!

I'd prefer live races without knowing the track in advance. Live races should show how good pipsqueaks are without any additional aid such as RH - or exercise. If someone has several hours to practice the track, that is a huge advantage.

Yes, we can ask how many tracks he wants to design himself and how many wants to leave to guest designers, then see how many of us are willing to provide a track and sort that. I will be happy to provide one or two tracks. Additionally, as I suggested in the shoutbox, I'm pretty certain there's a track designed by AbuRaf somewhere in the archive.

at least 50% guest tracks, 66% or more preferred :)

187 is Alan's Aburaf tribute track
188 is Aburaf's track sent by CAS

Rest is fine, if we have more than 66% guest tracks, I'll be super happy.

Hello there! I haven't been around much in the last months, but I'm glad I managed to race on every track last year :P

Now that you've just gone through the start of season, let me know what the pain points are and what could be smoother. I suppose the manual database updates are the most annoying bits? The same about the track updates.

I almost have two jobs at the moment, but if I have a list I think can find time to decrease admin friction :)

I would say the biggest pain point (monthly/annual update) is to package the track zip file. I have to go through the list of replays, identify the best time based on the submission date, download all, organize and package in a zip. If we could automate this that would be great - or simply link replays to the scoreboard once a race is finished, and then we could abandon the zip altogether.  The rest of the update is really a piece of cake thanks to your constant improvements :) I have to touch phpmyadmin for two reasons only: adding LTB hours and adjusting car bonuses.

Finally read through these posts.... my comments as follows:

I'd like to keep the Lotus, F40, Melange for sure.
Skyline I'd rather keep unless you have a better alternative.
The P911 turbo could be rotated - however, I will not recall the Ranger or the Kart (too unrealistic) and I recall the Mclaren to have a very ambivalent reception in the community - in any case it is not late yet to make a change even though the season has started. My only restriction is, that the car must behave realistic. Why don't we call one of the Toyota's? Or is it too slow?

Alternative scoreboards:
This is entirely up to you. I am fine both with GAR and NoRH. Whichever is liked and requested by more of you. Please decide and we can fix this by the end of January.

To be honest, I keep the competition running for my friends - you guys. I don't think we _need_ others, but of course it always feels better to bear 10-15 pipsqueaks than to beat only a few. So if you have the capacity and the will to advertise, don't hold back. I can't promise I'll do it myself.

Generic thoughts:
I really wanted to bring in some changes for 2017 but simply did not have the time for it. Three kids / moving to a new home / my other hobbies / keeping my team happy at my workplace - this will be a busy year. Still ZakStunts has its place in it and I'd love to see ZakStunts continue for several years, but I need your help. Guest tracks, advertisements, rule change proposals, funny side-races for a few months, new cars, access to post news to the main board, taking care of monthly updates - all are open possibilities and all help is welcome. No ghosts please though :) I ratrher see myself as a competition facilitator than a competition manager after all these years. ZakStunts is yours as much it is mine - don't hesitate to help form and run it together if you can afford the time.
