I love driving the spec racer in the current iRacing build, I even put more rear anti roll on than most others have as I like it with more over steer than what most sets have got currently If you find it is giving you snap over steer when you lift off simply keep a bit of throttle on as you transition, I also tend to bring the brake bias forward a little compared to the baseline.
@ SilverArrows77 - it definately is more stable with larger steering lock.
The Spec racer is great fun to drive it's the car I drove when I got my free demo which was the last week 13 It does wander about about a bit on the straight though feels a bit like the MRT , the Skippy is still the business for me Its the worse choice Iracing could have picked from a business point of view, Its just so good I don't want anything else.
Weeks after trying It for the first time it doesn't get boring it just gets better and better, but to fair maybe the SRF has hidden qualities to be discovered , I just cant get used to the drunken sailor feeling in a straight line.
The SRF in iRacing handles horribly. This is fact. No "good" car snaps like that when driven "improperly" (entering on the throttle, name one serious racing machine that requires this - even the real cars DO NOT require this). To fix this, the car needs unrealistic settings and tire pressures (the real car does not have adjustable springs).
You've kind of proven you're not reading all of what he has said then. You are only reading that one line of text. To answer your question: Yes, I am reading what he says. The difference is, I am reading all of it, and not focusing on one sentence.
Totally know where you're coming from SilverArrows. Same has happened to me. I can't say I regret it though to be fair. I do feel like I have been played by some effective marketing strategies, which makes me feel like a massive dong, but I am really enjoying myself and that's what it's all about at the end of the day!
I know what you're saying SilverArrows. I think it's a great pity with the Mazda etc that we don't get a lot more of the default tracks. I'd like to do Lowes Road Course, Lime Rock, Summit, Laguna. All superb fun tracks. There should be a half way house, especially in the D and C class cars to accommodate people moving up. I know that for some people that are already in season 5+, a change is good fun but not at the cost of the default tracks.
I thought I would try some oval this season after quite enjoying the world cup play offs, having been threatened at gun point and forced to drive the COT by our Celtic team boss! That barstuard Crozier owes me lol
First two races at Daytona in the COT were a disaster. Not a good idea! I really can hardly believe that people, 'A' class drivers if you will, cannot run a two turn track without causing mayhem. You don't even have to brake at any part of the track for crying out loud! whinge, whinge, cry, cry
Then I thought I'll give the Late Model a go. Numpty that I am did not put enough fuel in and had to stop for fuel! Still somehow managed second place though. Late model is actually a very good car to drive, certainly my favourite oval car.
The late model is definitely the better of the oval race cars imo. Can't remember the schedule (and can't access the site due to work blocking the site) but if the trucks are at Daytona this week I'll be racing a couple races tonight, love the close racing, but hate the complaining from some when the big one happens.
Will also be racing the Skippy this season as I have ignored this and tried to skip (no pun intended) ahead into the C class, but just dont have the skill level and think I'll need to learn from a class below.
No I made it down and missed the race at Daytona . To be fair the snow never seemed to make it pass Dalwhinnie and the bus journey from Dingwall to Perth took only 2 1/2 hours (a record I think) and in Dundee by 1pm. Couldn't find a decent pub or chipper near Dens Park though .
As for the game, couldn't be happier about the result and performance, and although some now are starting to think of possible league titles, I'm still thinking that we've done enough to avoid the dreaded "R" word and anything else is a bonus.
Oh jeez, i was all looking forward to the new season & getting my A licence but in true iRacing fashion computer says NO!. Take my advice & dont race with the aussies/japs @ 3pm in the afternoon. I was mid pack coming off T1, saw an accident started to slow 'bang' some one thought they would keep going flat out despite a car spinning down the track out of control :doh:. Half the field got wrecked & this was a road race.
Sorry you had a bad race. I have to say from my experience I'd say the opposite. They're the nicest bunch I've raced with and generally the cleanest when compared to late night racing or weekend racing. Guess you just had a bad one with a bad egg racing too....
Dont worry it was just one of those things, it involved an english man & an aussie who both must have been half asleep at the time. It was quite bizarre, i watched it back like ten times & the English guy still wouldn't admit that he did anything wrong.
There are Idiots in every nation,where a driver comes from Is meaningless , If they cause crashes report them.
I must have shared the track (mostly practise in the last season)with hundreds of drivers but in the few races I've had mostly in the( dreaded ) Rookie Solstice class I've only seen 1 genuine plonker in that time and acted accordingly.
Maybe I've just been lucky
Had my first few practise laps tonight In the Skippy@ Infineon the most demanding and Infuriating track so far for me...I Love It.
Infineon is, in my opinion, the greatest track in North America. It's future proof - even though it was built during a time when the cars were vastly different, it still races well with new machinery of all speeds. There are plenty of places to pass, but you need tons of balls to do it.
And people always coo over Laguna Seca because of it's negative Gs going over Corkscrew. Laguna has Corkscrew, but Infineon has turn 2 (negative G at the apex, after braking up a mountain), turn 3 (negative G on the blind exit), and braking for carousel.
It's also one of the few remaining dangerous tracks. It hasn't got sand traps, there are no tire walls (at least where they matter), and it becomes a monster in the rain (braking for turn 2 becomes a waterfall, there are rivers going into 3 in the basin, and turn 10 becomes a massive puddle). I was actually there in 2008 when a USTCC car speared off in 1 and launched into the stands under the timing tower. Those have since been closed, and a concrete barrier is on the outside of T1 now. No tires, either - just concrete. Go off there at 130 in one of the Jim Russell F3 cars and you will die.
Finished 2nd in my DP race last night (to Shannon Whitmore), thought I had him setup on the outside but he ran me a tad wide and I got in the loose stuff and lost too much ground to catch back up with him by the end (were within 1 second of each other first 20 of 30 laps).
2 COT races into my season and got destroyed in both (wrong place wrong time = me @ Daytona).
