UMad is the kind of thing that the Americans say because they think they're smart, even though they're ****ing idiots. Someone on these forums from the UK saying it just leaves me with the feeling that there is no hope and the internet is overrun with wankers.
That welsh prick would fit straight in on the iracing forums.
Cheers Mate. I'm having problems with my Fanatec wheel anyway, today I ran an updater they told me to run which has buggered it up, leaving me with more problems than I had when I contacted them in the first place. Fanatec support were good the last time I used them though, hopefully they are this time aswell, the guy seems pretty good. No racing for me for a while though.
This is pretty much the only time I want to be able to get on the iRacing forums and can't. Can someone do me a huge favour and make this post for me, see if anyone knows what I can do to give me a wheel which works again?
Yeah, I'm not sure how we are supposed to know the info when they supposedly have data from each and every car. What sources could we have that they do not?
I mean if he was just asking for ingame stuff okay, but he was asking for both as a comparison. When they said the top speed isn't that bad, it is the corner speed, he says:
Then people started to question why he wants real world data from us, he turns into a spoiled kid with this:
Pretty laughable to say the least. We were able to give him some decent numbers and everyone is like "I can get to those speeds" when it all honesty only way we can is through stupid straight line setups that can't do corners for crap. We need those speeds at Spa, not something people can do lapping Talladega looking for the fastest top speed.
See above. I'm not quoting it all as it is multiple posts. Basically lead physics guy asking the community for aero/top speed data for the HPD. Not just ingame, but in real life too. This came off worrying to many as well... they always claim to have all of this data when they get a car. The only data he referenced to this car was windtunnel data, which he says is always too high. His excuse for not knowing it all is that he does physics for over half the cars in iRacing. Understandable to a degree, but surely some of this would be tested in alpha/beta testing, not thrown to the community 9 months after the car's release.
Dead serious, first time I ever really heard it was from people in the UK, and normally hear it more from Europeans. Never normally hear it here at all.
So... how do I know if an account I just raced against is actually the real deal, or an imposter? Account named Trevor Bayne2... I know he has used iRacing in the past, before his Daytona 500 victory. Car was decked out in the Wood Brothers scheme, and he was pretty fast, worked his way up to 3rd behind me before getting DQ'd for ignoring damage I guess. It was a session full of brain-dead morons, I'm reasonably confident those 10 incidents were caused by other drivers out there... Not much history on the account, or the one named Trevor Bayne. Not a regular online racer at all.
As I understood it, it's the member's real name. A 2 gets appended to the end when it's the second person to use the name. The name comes from the credit card so there's no way to change it unless you ask iRacing support to do it for you.
