>Speed Factors updated after the 2004 Sno*Drift rally are now

What a mess. Did you look them over?
1) Without Mr Higgins, Sno*Drift speed factors are higher for each driver that attended. Its a legitimate speed factor based on the math and the type of event, but the drivers that didn't run have a speed factor that is low in the new world without the manufacturers.
2) The competitors that didn't run Sno*Drift's numbers seem to have dropped about 25-30%. I'm now a .49. Mad Mike is a .58. Paul Eklund is a .73, I image he's about .90+ in real life without manufacturers. I'm slow, but not that slow.
Have fun at Oregon Trail (That means you Ben). A Sno*Drift speed factor blended with a speed factor from last year is an apple and an orange. It might be worth adding about .05 (I'm sure you could see how much 5-8 drivers increased and figure out some kind of average)to each competitor that didn't run sno*drift using their correct speed factor.
With all due respect, Al, I think either you need to check your math, or we need to start from scratch. Or something. Look at the ranked order. I can tell you that you will have a lot of unsafe passing from the likes of me the first time we enter a rally.
.86 to .71. By the time I run another rally (STPR?) I should be last car on road.
This is quite funny.
I had to print it out before it gets fixed. I'm rated ahead of Buffum (and Milner - and a hundred other fast guys)!
I'll enjoy it for a little while - it obviously is not going to work in the long run...
