Benarty on its longest track is the G.P. circuit at 223m long and is 4m wide i believe the lap record is 17.186 seconds



Becuase our track is made up of painted islands we have 23 possible track layouts clockwise and anti clockwise

Sorry if indeed I am confused. I didn't think InitialD would have time to lift his head from his book explaining ring use.
Did you notice this before about Michaels car.

23!!!!! Not at all bad' You can certainly have lots of practice with different configuration. Not sure of the width of our track, but it must be about 3-4 meters.

No proble, I'm sure I also speak for Sow, when I say that it is an honour to be mistaken for InitialD

Regarding Michael's car I'm pretty sure it was D ( who else ) who first spotted this.

D is reacently not so quick on the forums, but it may well be due to RING abuse

A tip ! Look for the oldest guy with the biggest beer belly.

Yup. That would be even more cruel.

Why are we not surprised?

Ah, nice pics !

What are those nice extra 4 short antenas on each car? For additional GSM 900 / 1800 dual band capability?

As expected. The ones on MS's 710 were prototypes. I think (and hope) they will come to full production soon.

Agreed. I think I know what you mean. I took a look at the Xray driveshafts the other day and the plastic blades on the end looks like they will "solve" the diff wearing out problem.

My apologies. The dummy's guide book to the RING was stolen by Onkel Sow.
