    Thanks for the callout. Considering that all ratings outside of track specialization are set to default (40-60), I wouldn't want a team to put themselves in a situation where they risked a 70% chance of engine failure every weekend.

    I like the idea of having a gain in one area mid season.

    I see where you're coming from with this, but unless you're pulling a team Xxxxxxxxxxxtreme racing and are really short on cash to where a gain in engine performance makes your reliability suffer... you're doing it wrong. Lol

    Just wondering, since we actual use a Srd Series and a BER POLE Award contingencies has anyone thought about making a contig for the website that hosts the forum or anything. I thought that would be a nice addition or full blown custom contigs just a thought I had last night.

    My thought on that is I'd like in-race and year end awards to go with the contigs, like the MAHLE engine builder of the year, or something like that.

    All-Star Racing is looking for a third driver, which will only be a 1 season long deal.

    Would it be possible to sign my brother? He's not active on SRD.

    That's if we don't find someone.

    Just to provide visibility, here were the ratings provided for specialist/balanced drivers at the start of the season:

    Specialist: 75/90
    Balanced: 55/75

    I reduced Specialist ratings to 75/85 starting at Race 5. If quality of racing doesn't tighten up, I'll lower Specialist ratings down to 70/80.

    As an update - after running two races where I won by 13 seconds and @AntCurtain won by 30, I've reduced all Specialist ratings another 5 points to 70/80.

    Old Spice has been particularly tough - it took about 20 different attempts to get a decent result. For whatever reason, this track liked to "kick drivers that were down," and had many users almost exclusively at the bottom of the standings suffer mechanical failures. I've done my best with the final event to minimize this.
