    Damn, I forgot to do the "Magnificent Seven" thing, oh well, I think we're at least ...

    (ish)
    Shouldn't that be - "Damn - I forgot I had two hands!"

    What if I use a friends SRV as step ladder and we leapfrog the launch?

    I'd vote against it but I think my vote is compromised in this case. So whatevs.

    I'll just wait until Saturday and see how many runs it takes for lightning to strike twice.

    Should I post my (disqualified) run video anyway? Which should help reassure people that I won't secretly hold on to it and submit it later.

    I just reread your rules (there's so many I couldn't remember them all ) to see where the final screenshot needs to be. I think it's fine just in the garage - most or all racers making practise runs this week are likely to go faster next week anyway.

    I just like SRV races that end stationary on the ground, so inside the garage is fine by me.

    It's why this race is brilliant and also a nice change of pace. It's not just about going really fast and blazing across the finish, but quickly and safely coming to a stop.

    The difficulty of this is wonderfully compounded by the literal mountain of momentum behind you.

    OK, thanks for the feedback ... rules remain unchanged then ... just stop in any garage, no need to dock.

    Finding the garage and getting into it is harder than you'd think. I usually get caught up on the ramp for what feels like an eternity because I try to cut the corner....
