Due to lopsided voting, I'll jump the gun and start our final round early. The game is Pole Position and a particularly good choice for our system. Play Malibu GP (default track) on 4lp setting. I'm curious to see if we've really maxed this one out, lol. Use original systems and Atari-mfg controls. Only modern exceptions allowed are flashcarts/SD loaders using original ROMS. Pics preferred, but not required except for HSC wins and records.

 

Round ends Sunday, January 14th 2018 @9pm EST

Looks like a lot of TVs taking right turns bit too fast and rolling over.

The pictures I'm inserting are right side up on my phone. Not sure why it's turning them.

Stranger things happen. Just makes a little tougher to read. I spy a River Raid cart. ;)

 

58,500

 

Damn, look at that Q-lap. Only .01 sec behind best we've recorded here.

Okay, I did record a sick qualification lap. Not the same game that I got a new personal best. I'm kinda getting tired of Pole Position.  :)

 

59,050

 

Pole Position lap 57"97

 

I don't know why people complain about the 5200 stick, I'm better with it than I ever was in the arcade with an actual steering wheel!

That's probably it for me. What's next?

And 60,750 is sick! That's 4 absolutely perfect laps or has to be close to perfect anyway.

It was. 61k is a theoretical true perfect. That's no crashes, no going off-track, and minimal skidding+ Pole.

Round 7 goes to newcomer Hank Rearden in a TV rolling performance ;)  :thumbsup:  As a final present, I've set up a bonus round to continue this season an extra week while our new Mod gets prepared. I've selected Ms Pacman and it's only fitting as we played Pacman earlier.

 

Final scores:
 
59,050  Hank Rearden +11+1=12
58,500  zylon +10
53,350  RangerG +9
 
On a side note, our winner did record a HSC record breaking Q-lap, even though we weren't competing in that aspect. That means no one else tried for it. So, I will ask the current record holder his opinion. I will give the bonus pt as that is seriously hard to do.

I don't have Ms Pacman but I should have an Atarimax cart later this week. ☺️

Good investment. I only have 8 carts here +the Atarimax 128-in-1 cart. The key is not to change the games on it that often. Mine's lasted a few years now.

Normally, we would be on break now. I only added the bonus round as a filler.
