    I've been running last after being eliminated and still been nudged on track by a invisible craft behind me while trying to catch back up to the others.

    Lag,I expect,it hasn't happen very often,maybe 6 times in all the games I have played online ,still unnerving when it does.

    Maybe it's just british humor. Like the Doctor's TARDIS.

    Well, most funny (or ridiculous) lag was when the loading screen for TechDR stayed for years and when the race finaly started Andybob got away w/ Warp speed. Ok nothing I hadn't seen before. But at the first split he was more than on lap ahead. I even did not finish the race in time.

    I've seen a lot of strange lag too, for example
    me being the only one to start moving after go, but mines and bombs appear out of thin air in front of me.

    The lead changing from +4 sec to -4sec every checkpoint.

    The dis- and reappearing craft.

    luckily these things are rare.

    ive started a race 5 secs behind everybody else managed to finish second (2 secs behind) but showed up 1st place. when u get a lag start youre timer must still start at zero so even though they are miles ahead if you get round in a quicker time than them it will show up you won

    I've experienced some utter crap from a particular player (who I won't name, not a member of this site though.)

    Basically, it's similar to what JJohnEames said - I was in 2nd and saw that this guy was in 5th just before the end of the race. Next thing I know, he WINS the race by around 0.5 seconds.

    Next race, the same thing happens. I was in 3rd just before crossing the finish line, with nobody behind me or in front. This guy was in 7th. Next thing, he finishes 2nd. There's no explaining that in my eyes. Surely lag cannot be this bad?

    I've seen plenty of strange things happen. Nearly every online session I see people making jumps and boosting somehow on a flat surface when I play vineta k reverse, and similar things on other tracks less often. Lots of people are pretty random for me - sometimes they'll be 5 seconds in front, then suddenly I will be in front even though I haven't overtaken anyone on my screen.

    And this may be viewed as a positive, but whenever someone appears just in front of me at the finish line on my screen, I typically end up beating them.

    That's being in Australia for you...

    Hi all,

    my weirdest lag experience:
    raced sol2, all othes were around the 1st corner
    before i even got GO! on my screen.
    Approx. 0.8 sec i guess.

    Ate all the crappy stuff, bombs, mines whatever.
    Came in 7th. No chance. Final screen poped up...
    i was 3rd. the game compensated lag AFTER the race.
    very annoying, even if 3rd's better than 7th.

    Definitly another SL timebending proof.
