I really think the Hell episode was the best so far. I think a lot of things contributed.

First, the Racing was GOOD. Much better races with a lot more important turning points than usual.

Next, I think the camera work benefited from us revamping the way Camera 3 works. Racer's camera scripts now give some really good options, and combined with Texas work on CAM1 I think this means future episodes will be better, and we'll follow the action more.

Last Race, Click to Watch

Last, I think even though Wae's big long message about "how to do things" helped. Even though we all decided in the end to "just have fun and make no changes", I think her mail made us all think about how the commentary works. There was more focus on the Races... Slip did some great commentary and so did Salem.

I put together a "5 minute clip" of the final. If everybody is nice to me, I'll show you how to embed these in your postings. :-)

Hello all :)

I still can't quite believe how I managed to win that race; coming out of the maze I was in sixth position! Then things went in my favour: Poor Tindallia was knocked off the ramp; Waelya suffered piston failure, as did Spoof; Baldi and Maximus both decided to go straight up the ramp, and I had no choice except to cross my fingers and try the piston, which worked for me.

I'm not sure I'll be that lucky again; I must have used a season's worth in that race alone :)
