    Must be December in Oregon now... it's dark & grey & dripping & cold outside. It's been a long time, so I guess I know what I'll be doing this afternoon!

    FYI, the !!F3 Fanatics! server download for the Historic F3-Eve Community Pack did not work. I had to subscribe to it via Steam Workshop, in DurgeDriven's workshop.

    Comfortable lead, cruising steadily, and then... realized I was 3 laps from end & running out of fuel. Quick pitstop to put a splash (oh, crap, in went 10 gallons). Well at least Mr. Birtwell fell short on fuel, too. At least my internet connection held on until the checkered flag before it dropped me!

    Noticed you drop back, figured fuel. Fun race, nice little track. We need a couple more Spark enthusiasts!

    Yep, Loch Drummond tonight...I'll miss it but I hope lots of folks show up. It should be fun! Birtwell's in Arizona, they don't do time change so it's all an hour earlier then before the change...

    Scored a circa 2005 Yamaha 6.1 amp (configurable) for $75. Missed the circa 2001 Yamaha 5.1 amp for only $20. Now waiting for the 5.1 sound card from Egghead... F3s are gonna be pretty sweet sounding!

    I hope you were REALLY lonely all out in front there by yourself, Emery. ;) Congratulations. Great win. These things are still the bomb. Hope to see more on track. Thanks Bryan.

    Say it isn't so! Holiday times are always times when attendance is low.

    Your server pings around 350 for me. Would I be an issue jumping on with that?
    Actually dropped to 290 now. Also what times are competitive around here. Noticed you have Ai @ 120%, no good me jumpin' on if you guys can keep up to that pace...lol..

    Try it. You'll like it. No one reports lap times anyway. :)
