Istanbul comes to mind....Stick and me starring....

No wait, I was on his inside at T1, so I'm innocent and these physics don't apply to me :nope:..

Great way of saying 'be careful' Gogs, it just sounds so logical now.

Just weird that I'm the first to reply though. Maybe the rest simply doesn't understand and that's why there's so much trouble at T1 :biggrin:

Caspar.

Why should Ping and FPS interest us?

http://www.fetchfido.co.uk/games/reaction/reaction_test.htm

bit and bobs to add

rFactor is way ahead of GTL for online racing information, if you press "CTRL + F" 3 times you not only get your FPS but also a network monitor, also you can press the "2" key and get you current and average ping.

BMW CSL
L=4630mm
W=1730mm

old

example (1) : 3 cars, you ping is 250 ms by the way.
you look left and see car 50 with a Ping of 50 ms, your ping is 250 ms then you look right and see another car, car 1000 with a ping of 1000 ms. Just as you reach the shadow of the bridge everyone stands on the brakes, what happens next?

well the first thing we must look at is, who thinks thay are at the shadow of the bridge to start braking, anyway !!!!!!, well all 3 drivers from their own screens can see the bridge it's shadow and all the cars are in line.

this will need a graph

Outstanding stuff. :)  This is something that isn't considered enough, but is more relevant because we race with International grids.
