    Unappropriate isn't clever. Especially not when you mean inappropriate.

    Hey guys this is just a rough layout of what Mitto wanted as the new DWYB, I dont know if this will help or not.

    I just got extremely bored so thought I would have a mess about on LFS Autocross and attempt to make it :wack:

    "Oh noooooesss my car is too low too drift!!!!"

    Well as i see it you have 3 options.

    1) Man up
    2) Raise it up
    3) Sell it up and take up something less dangerous.... Like knitting.

    For what its worth, I love pod as it is. The seat time is great, the track is fun and just challenging enough in a low powered car. Making it any higher speed will make it a struggle for people in your average pod attendance to keep it spinning and in control, and focussing it more towards 500bhp competition cars will ruin it. Yea so the track layout could probably do with a shakeup every now and then but hey, it has been there a while now! And as for the bumps? I fucking love em! Nothing makes you feel more manly than coming out of a corner fully sideways the rears smoking and the front wheels clean off the ground! Isnt that what driftings about? Going balls out and having fun? Not whinging that you scraped your hovercraft bodykit?

    Please note this is not Santa pod... nor is it me but it gets my point across...
