  1. My Roller controller is still in a box. I used it 34 years or so ago, then we moved soon after. It has been in the box since. There have been times when I was going to get it back out and use it, I just haven't done so yet.
  2. Pit on lap 4. this will give the gasman plenty of time to fill the car and you'll be able to change all 4 tires before the gasman is done. After you start the gasman, you don't have to move either tire changer much. Barely touch the back or front tire moving down, then touch the top of the tire stack. It's all practice. Under 20 second stops are a must for times near 5:00. I had a 17.2 pit stop, but didn't quite fill the tank and ran out of fuel. I think my best was an 18.2 and finished the race. That is one important thing to remember by pitting on lap 4, the tank must be filled or risk running out. One full tank = 5 laps.
  3. Bmack takes the round on points and a fine time indeed. Congrats! This was a fun and very competitive round. Next time we'll try a different track. Thanks to everyone that partook in the race!
  4. Haven't played this Centipede clone in quite awhile. There is the Dan Bienvenu hack for those without a Roller Controller. Best of luck!

  6. That is by far my only gripe with this game, the bumper car crap. Other than that, this is good game. I have been pondering a scoring system for timed games such as this. I don't see anything regarding timed games in the rules. I was thinking like this: 1st- 100 points 2nd- 94 3rd- 88 Etc. etc. I was going to do five less for each place, but I think six will do. Thoughts?
  7. We'll figure something out. Perhaps the defending champ gives 50 points each to everyone that has played this season from his season total?
  8. Season 12 will be 32 rounds now, ending sometime in early September. After a brief break, the 3rd Annual Fall Knockout Tourney will start.
  9. It certainly is getting harder to improve. I've had 5:07. Can't seem to run another 5:05. I've had a 5:03, but ran out of gas just before the finish line.
  10. Pitting on lap 4 allows enough time to start the gasman, then change all four tires, stop the gasman and get out of the pits in under 20 seconds. Pitting on lap 3 is too early. You can start the gasman, but you'll only be able to change one side of tires before stopping the gasman , then changing the other two tires. Pitting on lap five is too late. You can start the gasman and change all four tires, but then you'll have to wait on the gasman to get enough fuel in the car to finish the race, costing precious seconds. Perhaps I can do a quick video.
  11. 5:13 (Le Mans). Pitted on lap four. Had plenty of time for gas man right away then tire changers as car was fueled. Still sloppy, left some time on the table. Pitstop time was 23.8. Still room for improvement. Under 5:00 seems possible with some practice.
