all you need to remember is that the weeks end on a monday night (in the uk) which may seem stupid but was brought in as people complained about the tracks changing durring a weekend, as it happens it actually mirrors real life with bankholiday meetings or rain delayed sunday races.
with the exception of the jetta, all series are in sync with each other so if your series is on week 5 then all the others will be on week 5
The link won't work unless you're already in the forum, but yeah, complete schedule. As long as you know at least one car/track combo that is running that week you can figure everything else out without much trouble. If only they had lined up the Jetta series with everything else...
After having another shocker in the Mazda, (god that car just brings up all of iRacing's flaws, I'd like it to go burn in hell for eternity please) I decided to use $15 of my remaining $25 credits to get the Jetta. Man. So much more fun. I've only done a few laps at Laguna, but it's nice to be able to push a car without it snapping away from you before you have a chance to see what happened. In fact I might get Sebring for next week...
if you stick with the mazda and find someone who generates setups you like, it's actually a very forgiving car and you can run really close to each other.
just watch out for the aero push, especially at milwaukee, when you get right behind someone, far better to run offset half a car width through the corners and if possible try to cope with a loose setup so the aero doesnt make you too tight. another trick for milwaukee is try to set the thing up for as much mechanical front end grip as possible as this also helps reduce the aero effect
Yup. It's quite bizarre, because I have no problem whatsoever pushing the Lotus to and past it's limit. In the Mazda I can get away with the most ludicrous of corrections at times, and other times a tiny balancing correction is met with instadeath. I reckon I have a WTF moment one in every 5-10 laps in it. Not good. So I think I'm done with it.
My favorite cars for now are definately the Skippy, Lotus, and now the Jetta as well. In LFS I tend to prefer the faster more challenging cars, simply due to how much more rewarding they are, but in iRacing the Jetta is so much fun in that pushing over the limit is very low risk compared to the Mazda. I've bought Sebring now, driven 10 laps or so so far, pretty good fun.
Good god, take a small break from simracing and I've lost the ability to drive.
SR now down to 1.35 due to random spins and offs while trying to learn how to drive Skippy again. Down to 1:21.535 on Lowe's which is not where I want to be, but at least I'm having lots of fun.
