Yeah, that was for a different sim.

You won't know yourself now... Transferring from a control pad to a wheel took me a month, but with that Simraceway wheel you had a head start on me... But you'll still have the problem of transferring acceleration and braking inputs from finger tip to toe tip...

Oh and welcome the the G27 club biggrin

IF I can make it, I can take the trusty #20 Home Depot car. Not sure yet how things will work out.

I watched you race Sunday. If I can get within about 50% of what you're doing, I think I'll be pretty happy. Smile2

Holy cow. I got down to 48:324 as my best during about a 25 lap practice run just now. Fairly consistant 48:4-6's alone. Nice setup Lugnut!

A very tentative entry from me. I had been soooo much looking forward to this but i've been invited out for a belated birthday lunch which was half organised on my behalf before i was even told about it lol

These VHR races are so few and few between that i would have sacrificed almost any other event. I guess Murphy's law strikes again. frown

Providing I can keep things contained to 'lunch' then i should be back in time, however there's a distinct possibility it may turn into lunch/late night/wake up with a sore head. In which case i'm stuffed.

Anyone got a good excuse i can use for not showing to my own party?? hahaha

Hold on, I'll wait.

I guess the screens look okay, but the screens for this looked okay too. I have to say the texture of the current Daytona surface is...not that great.

I really do not know if there are differences between these cars, but this has a color that warns you to avoid me on the track..

The cars are all equal, so no problem there.

If we happen to be on the practice server at the same time at any point during the week, I'll be glad to work with you and get you up to speed.

That applies to anyone, really.

...now that's tempting.

Not sure I can pull off doing two long races withing a week's time, though. Likely to incur the wrath of the spouse.

But I might float the idea. :P

I should be around for practice tonight, though a little after 8pm as that's when I put my son to bed.

Guys, I saw a few things tonight that everyone will need to be more careful about.

Don't crowd whoever has the inside line and push them down onto the slickery yeller line.

Moving down on the inside cars to try and squeeze between the two cars when there isn't enough room.

Rubbin' is okay. Slammin' is not.

No one was being intentionally bad, but with the way these cars move around, it could turn into a pinball game with little effort.

Remember to stay off the yellow line, and if you pass someone inside while on the yellow line, you have to give the position back. IOWs, the inside yellow line cannot be used as an advantage.

Thanks.


Next scheduled practice on Saturday at 12 PM eastern time.

I was thinking about running with you gents, but that mod's got some of the screwiest FFB that I've even felt.

Just spent over a hour trying to tweak it, nothing helps. I've been through the Richard Petty Driving Experience and I can't get it to feel remotely like what I felt in those cars, no matter what I've tried. I've taken RealFeel out, put it back in and adjusted it from one extreme to another...can't even get it anywhere close.

I'm definitely considering throwing my hat in...I did two tours in the MNRL Busch league and two other leagues during the NR2003 days, but the last time I raced online in any serious way was 200...8 - ish. My G25 has been sitting, gathering dust for months. I'd love to run but kinda worried I'd be the paddle in Doug's virtual pinball nightmare...hahaha
