Technically it is very easy to change the "fantasy name" of the track in the site. But should we do it? I see three possibilities:

  • We invent a really good name ASAP;
  • We change it to "Untitled";
  • We leave it as "Acacia Avenue"

I wish we still had the posts in the forums of those days.

Indeed. Some bits of have survived in the Internet Archive, but the WSC forum circa 2008 has completely vanished.

I know I'm digging up this post, but it costed to me to found where was the information about what kind of decompression was necessary to open the files. I think would be interesting that someone put this information on the Stunts Wiki(If already was there, sorry, but I don`t found it there).

Indeed, that should be documented -- as a section in Resource file format, or perhaps in a separate article to also cover compression in the executable.

K is fine for me; anything later would also work.

I'm trying to open it. I normally can't read RAR files, but I downloaded unrar-free and still, I'm getting "unknown method". Also tried with an old DOS RAR version under DOS Box and said the same thing :(

The RAR opens here, so I repackaged it as a ZIP.

Profile (on the top bar) >> Forum Profile >> Modify Profile >> Look and Layout >> Current Theme -- there is a dark theme there (CTG asked for the same thing once upon a time IIRC).

Let's do it!  :) We should leave a note on the shoutbox when it gets a little closer to the planned date.

That's some Beetle!

I couldn't identify where in Brazil was it

That is Roadoanel Mário Covas, the ring road around São Paulo (cf. the sign at ~0:50).

I think 187 should go to AbuRaf.

Definitely. (By the way, another track penned by AbuRaf is FTT0204 from Feel the Thrill, Krys TOFF's NoRH competition. It is included in the Competition Archive.)

Then I'll take 193, as I'd like a date during the Northern Summer.

I like the idea of trying the Toyotas, at least in principle. I will give them a try to remember exactly how slow they were (I have some hopes at least for the faster one).

Good news: the Toyotas are not nearly as slow as I remembered them; on the vast majority of tracks they should have no more trouble than the LM002 in completing a lap. If you ask me to pick one of them, I will suggest the Corolla GT-i. While the Sprinter Trueno does have a few things in its favour -- in particular, the lower overall top speed (148mph vs. 166mph) make it a more plausible LM002 alternative than the Corolla -- it also has one big drawback: unnaturally high non-asphalt grip, like the Lotus but even more strongly. Though that effect can be quite interesting in the Lotus, I don't think it would be a good idea to have two cars with this bug-slash-feature.
