The only good reason to sign up now is because it's free. It's dying, admittedly slowly, but I give iR maybe another year max until everyone realises just how badly it's run. Look at the ****ing state of the schedule they realised this season, it's ridiculous. AC can't come quickly enough.
I must say, tyre physics suck on road course. I mean holy crap i lift off throttle and the rear end is in dirt. Too much throttle and it understeers into dirt. Brakes dont even feel like they do anything sometimes
They're asking for input on what series to run in Week 13, expect the usual SR&IR joke races with street stock and MX5, but expect plenty of fun races too, something like Nascar on road courses and 60 car endurance events.
Schedule is only really set for 1 season, but iRacing are a ****ing joke when it comes to schedules.
So basically, they followed the voting only where it matched their stats. The whole point of voting was to get different tracks for different series rather than the usual shit, but when anything was different they looked at their stats and changed it. This has left us with a schedule that nobody voted for and nobody wanted.
Today (yesterday) done my first race in ages, finished 4th after starting 10th on the grid. No single incident. Avoided 2 crashes.
In my 2nd race, I was less fortunate. I was starting in 8th, quickly down to 6th or 7th, but on lap 2... cars in front of my crashed, and I had to go through the middle. But there was a car battleing with me. When I braked I lost all grip and slid straight into one of the standing cars. Later on rejoined in 14th, and made way back to 8th until in a slight loss of concentration, brushed the outside wall, and crashed really hard when spinning into the pit wall.
But I must say, I really enjoyed them 2 races, will race more soon.
Cadillac CTSV-R is a wonderful car. Took me a while to master infineon but besides some slight snappiness the car is a blast. Like the FZR with a more XRT feel.Not a fan of the cockpit as you cant see over hills but w/e. I still feel LFS is better.
Haha someone broke iracing. "down for maintenance"
