You shouldn't bother watching ISR (as it indirectly supports him with ad $$) as the show is terrible. It was sorta OK at times with Shaun, as they seemed a bit more sane with their reviews (albeit still iRacing biased), but the last time I watched an ISR video (which was fairly recent, only ~2 weeks old), he gave the impression that iRacing getting driver swaps was something revolutionary, even though LFS has had years of endurance racing with driver swaps.
I recently tested iRacing again after a longer hiatus and I have to say I'm quite impressed with the NTM5... In my opinion it still suffers from a bit too much drop off with higher slip angles, but for the first time since they started I was able to pinpoint why a spin happened rather than having wtf-moments... I mainly tried the RUF and the V8SC - the Porsche felt great out of the box (though maybe slow), the Ford needed the base setup from the forums to come alive and be enjoyable...
Hey guys, just as a quick promotion :
CoRe is supporting an iR-Cup with the german community RaceMore.de. The broadcast is in german though, but I think this is good racing if you look for something decent and short.
More infos here & here. If you would like to run just tell me as a PM and I can do the registration for you. We have 35 slots free and 10 are already taken shortly after the annoucement, so be fast.
that's because a lot of iRacing is setup. IndyCar is perfect example. You can go to a flat out track and be a second off pace despite having the same gears and aero settings as some one. Every minor adjustment plays in a lot.
I've driven the F1 car and it really is unrealistic. But, with a proper setup it feels half decent I must admit.
