AQ9 have a point. When I first started participating in PBRC's I had problems with understanding all those rules, and you want to make everything even more complicated. For example look, how people had problems with understanding over-complicated rules in last weeks Forum Friday:
EA Forums is full of people who post there once in a life time and most of the ones that fail to understand the rules post there just for the events, barely understanding english. This is not EA Forums, you need to trust on people, unless you're suggesting they're brainless kids who won't be able handle an extra rule. Where are those three or so guys we had at the start of these or the last series that were insanely good but were barely able to speak english? Oh wait, they're gone. Rofl.
Just how many people do you think will use this? This is an exception to the powerups rule. An EXCEPTION. Exception means that in the vast mayority of cases powerups will be forbidden, but that there will be a validating reason, that if you can't afford a car 'cause you do not have any slots (which I already mentioned) or 'cause you don't want to ditch skillmods (which I already mentioned too, sigh).
Be it, what?, five out of 35 racers as max per race, maybe three, that will make use of this? At maybe two or three races through the whole season? Most of the time we do have the cars and the proper skillmods installed, this is just for the cases we do not and in which we could use jumpstart+NOS if we were able to. You're fussing too much for a non-sense that I wanted to add for people to have more oportunities to be able to compete against others.
both you and AQ9 seem to have ignored that I also suggested that it could be done via a screenshot at the launch of the race, as this has done in the past when we still used to take screenshots at the end of the race here in ISRC for w/e reason (I don't recall it). There's a program called MSI Afterburner (but of course, zOMG! What's MSI Afterburner?! No one will be able to download that program I've never heard of!) which causes no freezing while taking a screenshot (the tool incorporated by NFSW does provoke freezes).
Don't know what's MSI Afterburner, where to download it or how to use it? Fine, you will be not allowed to make use of this exception and will have to get a car with 5 PS skillmods just like all the others. It's your problem to be able to record the video, because you will be the one who decides to make use of that rule.
I didn't drop it on someone else just because. Every racer who considers himself decent should know that perfect start NOS equals Jumpstart+NOS (and LamboGTR stated that too, without having to test it) if there's no power or duration skillmods involved. Hell, most of the time perfect start NOS will still be better than Jumpstart+NOS. There's no need to test it, and if you think there's a need, then go test it by yourself.
And I do not have time (and even if I had I'd still ask LamboGTR or DENghini to make this comparison for the skeptic people because my editing skills suck compared to theirs), but if you don't believe so then it's your problem. For what it's worth, I've just uselessly spent +20 minutes writing this to convince a guy over the internet that this is not that big of a deal if done properly.
