1 Pony Car War Second Race Pics on Mon Mar 19, 2012 3:46 pm

Platypus Vomit


The Drivers:

UltraPro (pic taken from the victory lap because his paintjob didn't show up in my replay - all the rest are from the start of the actual race)



Platypus



Notorious



Forgotten



Bloated



Element (Running for team Challenger, who was missing 2 of its drivers)




The Race: (I'm pretty much just going to go over the 1st-3rd battles, if anyone wants to write up the rest or take pics from other replays, where different cars paintjobs loaded, that's fine. I'm burned out on taking pictures now lol - I've got the replay on my storefront, and I'll send it to anyone that wants it.)

The black unmarked Camaro in these pics is Chris. His painjob didn't load for me in the race

Early on, this race proved difficult. Our first attempt ended up in a split lobby with me racing on my own and everyone else in a different race. Hopefully the patch comes out soon and gets rid of the problems. The second attempt stuck, though lining everyone up into the right starting places initially was difficult. Bloated was running 7 cars wide with the lag at times.



He also spent some time in the air and below the track surface.




But eventually we got everyone lined up correctly and the green flag dropped.



But the racing was short lived, as we had a 'Bloated Incident' about halfway through lap 1. Bloated (who was in 4th at the time) lagged sideways into Forgotten, sending Bloated backwards.




So we had a 1st lap caution.



But we were soon racing again. The first battle to really heat up was the battle for 2nd, between Notorious and Chris.



But after a few laps Chris slipped on by.



Which put the heat on me in the battle for first.



But eventually the pressure got to me, and I screwed up turn 1, giving first place to Chris, and he never gave it back the rest of the race.



And then 2 or 3 turns later I screwed up another turn, giving second to Notorious.



Which led to some tight racing between me and Notorious (we only qualified 2 thousandths apart, and it showed in the racing)



But eventually Notorious made a mistake, allowing me back into the #2 spot



But he wasn't done yet. We had another couple of laps of intense battling until he took the corner leading out onto the oval a little too tight and ran afoul of the superglue.



Which dropped him back into a battle for third with Forgotten



But Notorious was on a mission, and soon took the third spot back and opened a gap.



But Chris and I were running too fast for him to catch in the remaining laps.

Here's how we finished:
1st Chris
2nd Platypus
3rd Notorious
4th Forgotten
5th Bloated
6th Element (Running for Team Challenger who was missing 2 of their drivers)

Some Pics from the Victory lap:

The top 3 finishers (The black unmarked camaro in these is Notorious. His paintjob didn't show up in the victory lap replay)





The Winner, UltraPro, doing some victory donuts



And finally a pair of artsy shots (the orange Challenger in the second pic is Element - His paintjob didn't show up in the Victory lap replay)

Thanks lol

Are some of the pics showing up as huge and half cut off for you? I resized them in photobucket (and they appear the right size in photobucket, but some of them are still showing up huge for me here.

No way they are all the same size and look great to me. These pictures make me grin. They also give me a new level of respect for the drivers here. To race on the absolute edge of their wits lap after lap is Incredible. !

Lol, now they're all showing up right for me too. Must've been some lag in photobucket updating or something.

Yeah, you guys really surprised me with the consistency and speed. I've really had to step up my game to keep up.

Lol, gotta love the Forza servers. I'm just glad we only ended up with 1 caution. After the first lap I thought it'd be a 'caution race'
