I think it's the lack of compulsive stop-rewind-try-again RH, which is often characteristic of (sorry) water enclosed tracks, or tracks with a high density of crash-inducing tiles.

As Friker noted, it's a nice No-RH track. I also enjoy starting a new lap driving freely, rather than tweaking every movement of a single replay, one game tick at a time. It's more racing and less tool-assisted racing, so well done! ;)

El Paso will be dry, too.

Finally! I liked the track as well, and probably would even more so had I started racing earlier than 12 hours before deadline  ::)

1:39.95. This lap should give a little "last minute" homework to dreadnaut. Man, your lap looks stronger than mine, so please finish it 0.1s faster, because my own doesn't deserve a podium ceremony.

Question: Duplode is the local Superman? His file looks unbelievably small. Archives and actual scoreboards say that Renato Biker and him rule these competitons. Conclusion, tap water in Brazil must be infected with some kind of Vehiculum Velocitis virus. :D

In your lap the 1:24-1:40 sector is undeniably slow. Lucky case when all you need is an altered finish.

Pal, you brought me the mood to try again! So, the ultimate-ultimate Damascus. My previous finish sector wasn't that strong either.

Never mind, it should be accepted. Moreover, the website says you have 13 minutes left. And the value is increasing in every minutes! ;D

Replay is accepted. That's still a game, nothing more.
