Expensive subscription + Not really owning anything = Nah no thanks :/
Anyway arguably the lfs physics engine is just as good if not better. We just need laser scanned tracks or tracks with more bumps and personality to improve the driving feel further. this will bring out the best from lfs. As for mods I agree that if moding is introduced there will be a random quality of mods, but if the community rate and recommend mods to others, then for me theres no problem with mods. Ultimately this is what can send lfs in to the stratosphere, Look at some of the better mods for example in rfactor or RBR, there amazing. also there must be a way to stop the online matching of mods issue i have heard people talk about as an argument against mods.
That is absolutely unacceptable behaviour for an event of this stature IMO. Can't believe he didn't get penalized.
Gotta agree with bunder that that vid isn't really an advertisement for iRacing The sounds are very "meh", the graphics look very below average from that camera view and the overall look of the game is very "game-ish" rather than a proper racesim.
Great job Phil, impressive in that field with several top DWC drivers. And grats on your win Dustin. :P
Di Grassi had a bit of a nightmare yeah. He obviously hadn't had enough practice to feel comfortable in the sim, and after a couple of excursions his car was too damaged to continue (I don't think the cars were repaired after a reset). Hopefully other drivers won't be put off by the challenge in the future but it seems to probably be the case.
This is probably the cleanest race I've ever done.
Started from the pitlane due to a PC crash so was only just starting as they were past turn's 1 and 2, I fought back with massive concentration and care not to go off the road and managed to work my way up to 2nd by the end.
