Good job.
Exactly what I was thinking. YELL!! BTW, I was just checking out the results. 1st in class, 18th OVERALL. Not too shabby. Guess my days of ridng with DF are over..

Don't give away the why of my 1st in class, want it to be a stunner in my video.

I came 1 position away from C-Highpoint and only a minute and 54 seconds behind him (some kid on a KTM 200 2t). I started on last line and he start on the 2nd. If I didn't have to pass 20 something people I bet could have taken it. Maybe next race. It was NECC anyway so no biggy. I'll be joining a club for next season's netra races to see if I can make B.

Aren't the times staggered for the later minute(line) they start on?

The times posted are just a total of each lap there. Maybe it's that way with netra too. I was asking about time corrections at the end and everyone was looking at me funny.

its really silly if you have changed the defaults so that you have more than the standard number of messages per page, then the page count is way different
