Yeah, ftw = for the win.
I thought it's mostly a Euro-soccer thing.

I'll give it a try too if there's a space available. It'll motivate me even more not to touch the red-line area.

I just thought of something. I thought I read somewhere in the rules that there has to be an automatic trans car in the team as well. I'll have to check on that later. Right now I'm getting together some pictures for a coupl of how-to's I'll be posting up on Monday. I can't find my cable to transfer pics to my computer so I'll have to wait until I get to work.

How it works..
  • You start with a baseline 90-Day running average when the competition begins, and what percentage over EPA that is.
  • Try to get the best improvement over your 90-day +EPA average during the running cycle
  • Average the team together
  • Win, lose, have fun, learn a few things, trophies, accolades, resume content (OK, maybe no trophies...)

A couple rule items: one 4-door, one automatic (can be one car for both), and [EDIT] at least 2 members above the Mason-Dixon Line.

Great news, though with the new team formation!
