    @thesupernatural: I've avoided driving it on any road courses for that very reason. It's fantastic on ovals though. Just don't attempt any bump drafting.

    I was just realizing last night how a year ago, when I first got into iRacing, I would get incredibly nervous any time I got close to another car. My pulse would go up, the adrenaline would start flow...

    Last year when I was brand new to iRacing, I liked to spectate races a lot. I just so happened to spectate a rookie Street Stock event at Charlotte one night. The entire race was practically incident ...

    @iron1c: Did you just get that Playseat or is that what you've had all along? I have pretty much that same model (mine is silver). I actually don't mind the center post. I was using the clutch pedal ...

    I'm not gonna make it tonight unfortunately. I really like that track too. Good luck everyone! I might get there in time to spectate but not likely to get in early enough to grid.

    I gotta ask... any special reason to race the Auto Club road course for the Jetta series? It doesn't seem like a great candidate to me. It might as well be a parking lot with orange cones marking the ...

    I bought the Jetta a week ago and then did several laps around Donington and it was pretty fun. Fast? No, not in the slightest. But fun? Surprisingly it was. They really should have made that one of t...

    I don't think they ever said the name of the race track once during that whole tune. Doesn't count! Could have been a song played over anything really.

    I'm sure you guys know, I love oval racing but I'm rarely home on Sundays, so I had to miss the Gen-6 at Daytona. To back what IroN1c just said, the Nationwide is a great purchase. Just don't buy the ...

    I know I know :( For what it's worth, I'm better with the slower stock cars than I am with the Gen-6, so less chance of a spectacular wreck that takes out the whole field. I had really good fortune la...

    I'll be there! Probably not on Sunday though, like usual.

    Already bought the Mustang though. And yeah I'm not taking it seriously, but I am still going to stick to the Impala for now. Main reason I'm asking now is because I want to make a new livery for the ...

    Are we still counting points for the manufacturers in Bombcar, or is that over now?
