A few more cars get into the Konya/Antalya complex but now a bunch more are ready to pile in...

Turn 12 Summary

Swaine slows to 80 and takes Antalya on the line for free.

Ling comes into Konya hot at 120. He runs the 80's for 2 wear then the Antalya line for 2 more. Beckman takes a more prudent 80 (na ga do it) into Konya on the line for free.

Welage pulls up to Konya on the line at 120. Tatum, also at 120, takes the inside position.

Rae catches up to some traffic at 160 and sets up Konya on the line.

Kennard & Rando trade paint down the straight at 160 apiece. Long makes it three wide at 160 and the bonus.

Marvin drops the hammer to 180 and his engine decides to comply with the request (bal -1, eng +4; 8 = pass). Incorpora pulls into his exhaust at 160.

Brandt keeps up at 160.

I think my brakes should be cooler. Still.

Lots of fun stuff this turn!

Note: I corrected Rando's chart. I had meant to cool his brakes last turn (belatedly) but instead reduced his engine mod by 1. All fixed now. From a PBEM perspective this system is a bit harder on the RM for tracking stuff.

Turn 13 Summary

Swaine pushes his engine to hit 140 across the S/F line (bal+3; eng+1; 11=pass). Brakes cool at the time trap. Note that the engine mod can go negative with another push.

Ling finishes out Antalya at 120. Beckman burns 2 tires at 100 through the Antalya 60's.

Tatum completes the corner complex at 80 for 1 wear (60 then line). Welage does the same in opposite fashion (line, 60/80).

Rae, at 100, rolls to the outside in Konya for a wear before taking the Antalya line for another.

Kennard comes in hot on Konya at 140. He runs the outer rail for 2 wear and a chance roll (bal+3; 11 = pass). He has no problem keeping control of the wheel. Note the loss of 1 balance for the roll.

Rando gets his preferred route on the Konya line at 120 for 2 tires. Long drops a tire on the Konya line at 100.

Marvin pulls up to Konya on the line at 140. Incorpora takes inside position on the #78 at 140 and the bonus. Brandt brings up the rear at 160.

A slew of wear chips are anted up by the back markers, some of it probably not intentional.

Turn 14 Summary

Swaine, running on close to bald tires, drops into the outer lane of Istanbul at 100 for free. Ling pulls up to Istanbul in the middle at 140. Beckman moseys across the S/F line at 140.

Tatum and Welage fly out of Antalya at 140 each, trading paint the whole way.

Rae finishes out the Antalya line at 100.

Rando rounds the Antalya 80's at 120 for 2 wear before grabbing the wing on the #7 machine. Kennard clips 2 tires on the Antalya line at 120 to pull up alongside the red & black Chevy.

Long burns a wear on the Antalya 80's at 100.

Marvin has initiative at 100. He drops a wear in the Konya 80's before shedding another on the Antalya line. Incorpora over brakes to 80 (1w). He loses a tire in the Konya 60 and another in the Antalya 60.

Brandt over brakes to 80 (1w) before running the Konya line for free.
