The grid is a game of Twister!

It can't be as bad as Myth's grids selection.

The only thing I know for certain about Myth's scheme was that it always involved me starting last row in almost every race.

The Random Number Generator put you exactly where you deserved to be!

Also Fortnite fans, I might be competing in a streamed Battle Royale competition on Saturday at 4pm.

It is a competition for Creators etc but I am sure I will just get whooped. Might be worth a watch as the streamers have the ‘Official Epic Streaming/Spectator software so it should be a pretty professional set up...

iiiSAndman twitch stream: https://www.twitch.tv/iiisandman - The tournament will be casted by EOSN with a professional spectator system like the first tournament

There may be still spots open for a content Creators, Play testers and Streamers etc (81 players when I signed up)... I may pretty sure you guys stream and help test my islands 😉

Well it can't be as bad as Stapp's grid selection. Even David Icke could not wrap his head around this.

The only thing I know for certain about Stapp's scheme is that it always only involves the top racers.

No real reverse grids or any chances for the less gifted, Stapp likes to keep the things divided. George Soros would be very proud lols

Stapp’s grids are to help stop first corner carnage...

The top half is the top four or five finishers (from the last race) in reverse, the back half is last positions from the last race in finishing order. This should (in theory) make the first corner or two less competitive.

I can see the logic behind it, however rather than punishing the slower drivers with poor grid positions what we should do is call out the aggressive drivers that have lead this system to be used.

It can get boring starting at the back a lot, especially if you tend to be there because you pull over and wait after an incident rather than powering to the front. It is easy to get the impression that respect and politeness gets you punished.

I hate to admit it but my favourite system is the @doubleg213 grid, which is why I copy it. However all drivers need to respect each other and not try to win the race on the first corner.

I was trying to come up with something intelligent and meaningful to say about grids and clean racing and how difficult it is to find the balance and etc. But we all know I was just going to use it as an excuse to slag off Dave a bit.....sooooo @SkyeDave , your puns are terrible! Have that!

We all have our burdens to bare (bear?)... you have two.

  1. Being related to Dave
  2. Having to slag off Dave

Nice one @CatManDoza, I'd say that's a result.

It's funny that one of the fails is the same reason @JuniorChubb keeps losing his fortnite matches.

Unfortunately all modern cars have suspension links that are made of materials which looks like they could be some form of metal but which display the load bearing characteristics of chocolate.

I know of a very reputable company who can design and supply something which is very capable of standing up to the perils of the modern road environment as a very reasonable rate*

This above advertisement is nothing to do with the fact I've renewed the motor trade / motor sport insurance today and require a large cash injection. 

 

 

*Disclaimer, reasonable rate may only be reasonable if you're a Saudi prince, recent lottery winner or cocaine dealer.

If there is loads of play anyway I'm not surprised.

I still need to a do a couple of links on the A6 and a tensioner, but I absolutely hate working on it.

Need to sell off some stuff and buy something else before either gets really bad.

Think i'll skip tonight boys, not feeling very happy at the moment. And not very social so better to stay away and not bother you all with my rants just in case. 

That brings me also to my apologies for my bad joke yesterday, about Stapp keeping us divided. I just shouldn't react when I don't have myself together. Feel bad about it even if Stapp himself probably doesn't even know the person I named. Again my apologies.
