There is no Movies topic?  :o

I have watched an Argentinian-Spanish movie last week. Argentinian films (or South-American in general) rarely reach Hungary.
The title is Wild Tales / Relatos Salvajes.

It was very good. A collection of unrelated short stories with onething in common: the protagonist cannot take something anymore. Funny, witty, surprising, with subtle society critics. I liked it a lot. I wonder if this was a well-known movie in Argentina or something more artistic.

To elaborate more on cars, my view is as folows:

Proven to be working, welcome anytime:
Nissan skyline
Lotus esprit turbo
Ferrari f40

Mclaren F1 - there seems to be a generic dislike for this car
lwt zr1 gt3 - not custom enough
porsche 911 turbo - not custom enough

Tested as a competition car, not to be considered:
Ford ranger
Xylocaine xf

toyota corolla / sprinter - likely both too slow to be considered as a proper competition car
ikarus 260 - definitely too slow to be considered

Starting this thread a bit later than usual, so quick feedback is welcome.

Xylocaine and Speedgate out for sure. Prefer to keep the Melange and the F40, unsure about the Porsche 911
Which ones should be the replacement cars? I would opt for a best-of from the past years, including only cars with proven realistic and bug-free behavior.


I did not plan any rule changes. The 14-days public replay rule seems to be a success and needs no adjustment. However, I am open for any recommendations.

one month or 4 weeks intervals?

There is a spare football field in the middle for battles between the hardcore fans and a hospital nearby for injuries. Very convenient!

I'd say if there hadn't been a rule for this before, a draw is the fair decision. But Zak will say the final word about this.

I guess Duplode will be strong enough to avoid thinking about the tiebreaker.

Yes, agree, similar to CTG's points - no rule so far so no change now. If it is a draw in REAL points, it is a draw.

I would not change anything now. It should have been done in March.

A logical decision would be for the driver with the most race victories to be the winner. But only if all possibly involved pipsqueaks agree with this :)

A fellow site visitor sent me an article on Quantum Link, which was basically a pre-internet internet for the commodore 64 in the late 80s and early 90s.
I never heard about it before and found it pretty amazing. If you are interested in computer history, take a look at his site.

Zak family's names in portuguese and related nicks:

Andréa/Andreia if it's female or André if male -> Andi/Andy/Déia or Deco (male)

Pedro -> sometimes is Pê
Barnabé -> Barney (it's not common this name)
Ricardo -> Rick, Rico and rarely Cardo.
Roberto -> BetoMartin/Martim -> not common nickname
Mariana/Mariane -> Mari/Nane/Nana

When it's small, you can use -inho (man) or -inha (woman) in the end, but in some cases, the last letter will be supressed or adapted: i.e: Riquinho, Betinho, Marizinha.

Haha :) Now I am fully ready to travel to Brazil :)

Google translate is quite good in reading Hungarian :) click the link and then press the speaker icon on the left
