Quote from PMD9409 :I don't know what is more amazing. How fast your hands are to downshift that fast, or how fast your right foot is to blip exactly the same each time. Very entertaining to watch.

The car autoblips for christ sake.

Still think something fishy is going on??

Yes, please tell about how you are faster than me. Must be hacks somehow
Quote from boothy :Indeed saving $25 is much better than the $5 you'd have got for the year of unbroken subscription.

And here's what they announced back in April:
  • New Tire Model for all cars.
  • Enhanced aero model for improved drafting and more realistic downforce characteristics.
  • Heat/Tournament racing for private leagues/sessions.
  • Driver aids available for private leagues and Rookie series (ABS brakes, traction control, driving line, steering aids, etc.).
  • Enhancements of new sound system.
  • Endurance racing and driver swaps.
  • Suzuka Circuit (Japan).
  • Iowa Speedway (USA).
  • Ford GT race car
  • Honda LMP ARX-01C race car
  • Live pop-up chat on member site.
A couple of differences... :shaun: (and the cars might not even be ready for 2.0)

Could you link me to that announcement please, Boofey?

You know I'm just having a poke from reading all the iR forum comments. The speed of the shifting doesn't bother me, as I nearly match it, its just the consistency of it. Even when shifting down when not going in a straight line like on the final corner.

BTW, keep up the discussion with netcode and F1 random blowups. That crap needs to get fixed ASAP.
Quote from count.bazley :Wasn't that $30 iRacing credits for each year you renewed, which means you still have to spend the full amount to get the 'discount'. This looks like a pure $25 discount to me.

Indeed. But lets face it, Ant doesn't let facts get in the way of him having a good rant about iRacing.

Excerpt from: iRacing 2.0 release timeline
Quote from Steve Myers :We will likely have half a dozen or so cars done for the 13th week (mix of both road and oval cars) with the new tire model and will plan on breaking from our traditional stance of not releasing physics changes during an active season and roll out cars with the new tire model as they are done.

NB: 13th week starts = ~25th Jul 2011
well i am silly the offer is for "best renewal price" aka your account has to be active xD FFFFFFFFFFFFFFfffffffffffffffffffffuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu!!!!

Oh well lets see if i put it off another week until week 13 starts....just for a bit of consistency
astro my account had lapsed and the discount code still worked
Quote from The Moose :Indeed. But lets face it, Ant doesn't let facts get in the way of him having a good rant about iRacing.

I do enjoy a good rant but i think your both clutching at straws here.
(The facts/truth do matter, in fact thats what usually triggers half of my rants tbh. )

What's the difference between the two deals? Your gona spend the money on content anyway?
I looked at the old $30 content offer as a $70 membership. The new offer is a $75 membership. AKA they are lying to their customers.

I guess its open to interpretation, but you have to admit they do like to stretch the truth from time to time.

Quote from anttt69 : but you have to admit they do like to stretch the truth from time to time.

Indeed, but in this case they were 100% truthful. They worded it very well. It is indeed the cheapest renewal price of the year.

You are correct that you actually saved more money in the "$99 and get $30 credit" promo, but that in no way makes them untruthful at all in what they are promoting this time.

That offer was a $99 renewal, this is $75. There's no clutching at any straws there fella. It's not open to interpretation at all.

They have a very good marketing department. I used to cringe at some of the shit they come out with, but i cant criticize them this time round.

Quote :I have seen a bunch of posts speculating on the release date of iRacing 2.0 and in particular when all the cars will be done so I thought I would post a short update on how development is going on iRacing 2.0.

One of the best aspects of our development model is that we DON’T have to cram everything into a once a year build and can roll new things out when they are completed so in effect iRacing 2.0 will be an extended launch. We will likely have half a dozen or so cars done for the 13th week (mix of both road and oval cars) with the new tire model and will plan on breaking from our traditional stance of not releasing physics changes during an active season and roll out cars with the new tire model as they are done.

Yes, we had hoped to get all of the cars transitioned over to the new model for the 13th week build but as you could see with our development of the new Nationwide car we encountered some technical hurdles that put us behind. The good news is that once we get the first dozen or so cars done the rest should follow very quickly.

I will plan to give everyone another update next week with more information on what cars we likely will release first and how development is going on this exciting 2.0 release.

I'm particularly curious about when the F1 championship will be affected by it, and to see the impact on skyppy and mazda.

From the iStig review, it seems the Spec Racer Ford will be ready first. That leaves room for 2 other road cars to be relased this month. Anyway next week we'll know which ones.
My bets are Truck, Impala A, maybe the Sprint car, the F1 car, SRF and the C6R. The C6R is a safe bet as it will be racing against the LMP2 and Ford GT which will both have the NTM aswell.
I will resubscribe once the legends car and the street stock get the new tires.

That gives no promises of driver swaps, endurance racing or anything...?

I like bets, I'll jump in this one.

A COT
B COT
B09
C Truck

A F1
B LMP
B Vette
B Ford GT
C Riley
D Mustang
D Skippy
R MX5
R SRF
R Solstice

Some of the slower cars have the same tires as others. Anyone remember how it went? I thought for sure it was like Mustang, Solstice, and something else.

Quote from Wilko868 :That gives no promises of driver swaps, endurance racing or anything...?

Endurance racing/driver swaps and Fmod (sound) updates got dropped for live pop-up chat (like facebook). They even stated that driver swaps might not even make it into the next build. They don't even know their own timeline, which is just stupid, but I'll say around beginning of 2012 for driver swaps.

Ant, where are you? Now this is worth having a good rant about

Wait a minute.....are you saying that half your rants are based on petty and ill-informed opinions?






becasue I base all my rants on being petty and ill-informed
Amateurs... All of mine are based on highly professional, impartial and expensive studies.

Guess you definitely need a few of them before starting to accept the possibility that iR is actually trying to rape your bank account.
I splurged and bought iRacing again as well as content to a total tune of 396.20 funny thing is i still break well even for my weeks pay
My bank account has been raped but well worth it in the long run.
Anybody know if there are any promo codes for resubscribing?

EDIT: Eh, too late, I caved in.
Just trying to find out whether there is something wrong with my wheel, or it's just shitty design of the wheel.

Does anyone else's G27 wheel have this knocking noise when the car is going over bumps? It's quite loud and annoying.
