  1. My 2018 IMSA retirement tour is a go...

    For spectating, I would agree
  2. My 2018 IMSA retirement tour is a go...

    Enjoy what is sure to be an awesome experience!
  3. Tell me about Circuit of the Americas

    I'd do WEC. Unless F1 has lowered prices post Bernie.
  4. Dirt Videos

    Now I am seriously interested...
  5. Do you bounce from sim to sim?

    Yup. Sums it up very nicely, IMO.
  6. Realistic PC System Requirements

    I was (stress was) running it on a dual core 2.8 with 8 gigs of ram and a 650TI 2 gig. Mostly medium and some high. Unfortunately, the spousal unit managed to finally kill it for good last week, so it will have to be replaced some time. But it should be OK.
  7. Proposed: UK Cup Series 2

    Thank you!
  8. Proposed: UK Cup Series 2

    Donington National or GP circuit?
  9. another automotive hero passes

    Another legend gone... http://www.racer.com/north-american-racing/item/135362-tony-adamowicz-1941-2016
  10. Usually, I take most of what appears on PRC with a grain of salt, but in this case I think it's a direct hit. As I've said many times before, the last dirt game that you could put real world numbers into and get a correct result was Ratbag's DTRSC. And I had 3 ring binders full of them to choose from. If that's their game, it's total BS. Side note, I tried putting real world values into Race 07 FBMWs (and the RFactor mod), not so good either. Anyway, here it is. https://pretendracecars.net/2016/09/29/been-trying-to-get-beta-access-for-a-while/
  11. I'll just leave this right here...

    Between that and the business model, I believe I will have to give it a miss...
  12. F1 2016?

    Thank you for posting these. I'm enjoying them very much. I may have to pick this one up down the road.
  13. rF2 moving from ISI to Studio397

    I will wait and see. Not terribly optomistic, tbh. I will buy the new product when they ditch the asinine subscription scheme.
  14. Sprint Cars: Steve Kinser retires

    If you never had the opportunity to see him race or are unaware of his overall statistics, I don't believe there will ever be a driver in any form of motorsport that was as truly dominant as Steve Kinser during his prime. Even in the twilight of his career, he was pretty damn good.
  15. 1. Somewhat, but doesn't really enter into it (except for "takes it too serious" guy) 2. Nah, don't care 3. Mostly that 4-6. Sometimes I would also add that there's a lot of different options out there. I don't own them all. I also don't want to submit to RF2's subscription plan, but that's just me.
  16. Indy 500

  17. Indy 500

    According to the engineers, that would be perfect fuel mileage! True story, when we won at the Indy GP with Wickens, our engineer was chewing his nails during post race inspection because we had to have 1 litre of fuel for a sample and he wasn't sure we had enough. We had 1.2. After that, whenever the engineer said put 4 gallons in it, I'd put 4.5.
  18. Indy 500

    I am shocked that you can run an engine on the yellow map without burning it up from being too lean. I never would have believed you could do it!
  19. Indy 500

    Monday was a good day, yes! It's so hard to believe, I'm sure it's nothing compared to what he's going through. It's a wonderful thing for he and his family. The dynamics going forward should prove interesting. I don't see him going back to F1 to drive a bottom feeder. We shall see...
  20. Indy 500

    That's Rossi and my big head in my avatar, so you can imagine how I feel about the results!
  21. IndyCar Race Control: "Gone Fishing"

    You might enjoy this as well! http://www.racer.com/indycar/item/128235-indycar-pt-chevy-did-better-job-bottom-line
  22. Williams complaining about "Haas model"

    Indeed. Either let them inovate or let it become spec racing with individual badges (franchises). I've about had enough of it to be honest. What a load of crap.
