Their advertising budget must be crazy. I'm guessing the Josh Wise paint scheme cost them 30 grand for the two races, plus all these promo videos they are always doing. Like you said, iR has tonnes of potential, just no proper business plan. Plus I do think if DKs ego were to be brought down a few notches that would help also. The comment where he says "our biggest problem is that nobody knows about us" proves that he's not in touch with reality or he thinks we're all morons. Then there is the cows eating the grass comment. I thought that was a joke at first. Man he should post more, keep in touch with the community, maybe race once in awhile too.
I just shake my head at this post. "A massive over simplification" my ass!! iR has plenty of cash. They could easily sign a deal with goodyear to get some REAL DATA. A concept DK is unaware of me thinks.
If you want to sound smart on the forums now you start off by saying " As DK has said the Tg is......"
I hear ya. The temps I'm talking about though are surface temps I got from MoTec. It seems that no matter the tire pressure the middle temps are always higher on all tires but the LF. iRacing always had problems with tempurates on that tire for some reason. I was just reading that thread and he did say to someone to basically forget the temps and just go by feel which tells me the pressures and temps don't mean anything.
No matter how much you lower the tire pressure on the impalla the middle of the tire is hotter than the edges on the right sides. Dave. K basically said never mind the tempuratures and just focus on how the car drives. The new tire model is just a bunch of fudged numbers I think. I don't understand why Dave K. doesn't get real world information from Goodyear. Talking side ways about polymer strains makes absolutely no sense. This sim is over rated big time.
