Its Friday and I'm off to the track!

25% for normal play, and how many % for racing?

Anyway, I run in my engines using WOT method. About 15 to 20 tanks or so. I don't have a JP but I would assume their sleeve tightness are about the same as Novarossi's.
D, there is no need to run that many tanks through an engine for run-in.

Its bad news actually. So although my service provider is up, the network going out is Angel Network and apparently this backbone will probably never come back.

At the moment because of this I can't even access the contents of 3hobby via ftp or telnet which means I can't get the back-up files to even transfer it to another server.

He must have thought you have immersed yourself in kilts (or sarong for that matter) and would only get back after a week or so.

Denso, the Network supporting it out of my service provider may be gone for good. If I can get at the files I plan to move it to a completely different provider (probably in Europe).

I'm afraid if I can't get back at the files, I'll have to start fresh which means it'll still be there but some content as we know it (eg the pictures you uploaded recently) will be missing.

Its about time ... that should keep a few of the characters we both know honest hopefuly. I remeber they started acusing everyone else doing what THEY were doing.

I bought some Trinity 30% and tried it myself for playing, not worth the power gain I thought. But then again, I can't tune an engine.

I did enjoy Scotland a lot during the last trip. Next time I'm going to bring my car along and visit Benarty to give Denso and hard time!

As for the kilt, lets put it this way ... sarong is 100 times cheaper than a kilt!

I'm looking at different providers as we speak. A "fan" of 3hobby.com is also offering me to go to his own dedicated server based in Belgium. Funny thing is isn't even a registered member, he says he just "sneaks" around the site all night! LOL

I'll let everyone know what happens.

Yeah, the shoutbox is definitely great.
