    I mostly disagree with most of Foofer's post, but the deliberate ramming issue is a real problem and very difficult to avoid, there exist people who just have it as their objective to join races simply to ruin them. They are trolls who get fed by doing that. Very recently I was in a U public lobby with almost 20 touring cars, on race start there were 2 guys that accelerated while the first red lights were shown, smashed everybody on their way, then hunted the ones that survived, for the rest of the race. Last lap, it was only me and another one racer left in the race, apart from the 2 trolls. One of the trolls waited for me to get me out (again), but this time I played cat and mice with him at slow speed for a few turns, until I managed to ram him into a spin and crash him into the barriers myself! During all the race he was talking very proud of his actions, in the end we shut up, that was very fun

    Those 2 trolls were not one of those who have been mentioned here in earlier threads/posts, they were new to me, so it's like a plague in U servers. I know, I can avoid those servers, but newcomers can't, so hopefully something can be done about that. A black list or something, I am guessing SMS cannot do something about it, but at least people hosting races should now about them. Or give as a way to kick people by vote easily during races..I did step to the side of the track to ESC and vote to kick those 2 trolls, but apparently not many others did that/knew how to do it, so they survived till the end. An easy way to vote to kick while racing could had solved that problem.

    Nope, it was in Brno, open TC class I think. Agreed about the rest that you say, though

    Skill rating starts you at mid-range; 1500pts. You can move up or down.

    Safety rating should do the same. Start everyone at D and then anyone at F or U definitely isn't safe and can be avoided.

    Or simply, if you got votekicked out of at least 15 races while still being in U or F class, you get "promoted" to "T" like troll.

    Think I must be one of the few lucky ones. I rarely encounter half of the problems people complain about in the forums. I race in all sorts of lobbies (I don't go out of my way to find one to match my license "A") I hardly ever get a lobby full of rammers. Even if i do, I know how to spot and avoid them. Using the mirror can work quite well. If you brake and the car behind starts getting a lot bigger in the mirror, don't turn in maybe take pre-emptive avoiding action... In the 200 online races I've started, I've finished 184, had one DQ (not pitting on final lap - didn't check to see if it was a pitstop race) and 4 non finishes. Those 4 races are the only times I've ever quit. 2 due to lobby full of knobs, 1 time because I had to take a phone call and 1 disconnection.
    Recently disconnections haven't even registered for me. Last week in one evening, I had 3 disconnections during race starts. Didn't take any points from me, didn't even show up on my stats as not finishing a race...

    Just started online and DAMN, PC2 is clearly harder than PC1 because so many drivers are all over the place. I am unsure of my braking so tend to brake a little early then exit fast and I am relentlessly rear ended and lose points, it's insane.

    Or. I intentionally start last, wait for the wrecks and drive around them but I am often hit as these wrecks rejoin the road, yet i am penalised.

EX: what good is it to run low down force to gain straight line speed but you cant handle the car in corners and end up off the road

    My rank is A1650 and I'm 91% to My S license.
    Agree. If set up allowed you to add more power, then setup would be the difference.
    Change your set up to suit your style. Be patient. Wreckers get bored quickly, racers get better with practice and patience.

    There's one thing that does that, closed radiators, which can be used without a disadvantage, at least in TT. Gives you a few tenths.
    I'd personally love to see this setup option completely thrown away from the game...
