WHY DO PEOPLE JUDGE EACH OTHER OVER THEIR PERCEIVED VIDEO GAME SKILL?

ALL DIFFICULTY LEVELS ARE VALID. EASY IS BEST FOR SOME. HARD IS BEST FOR SOME. NONE IS "RIGHT" OR "WRONG" STOP JUDGING AND JUST PLAY.

@iron1c: I think they hate ovals, because they're squares! BOOM, GEOMETRY JOKE.

Okay, we'll have practice for Daytona in about 20 minutes! Based on prior races, I'm still going to set a fixed setup, but first I'm going to take the fixed setup and remove all tape, so that we can bumpdraft longer with less overheating.

Edit: NEVERMIND IRACING FORCES US TO RUN 40% TAPE MINIMUM grrrrr stupid rules

Edit 2: Okay I lowered the temperature a bit to hopefully reduce overheating and also set 10 fast repairs because fuck it, why not

I will be starting up a practice session shortly for tonight's oval race at Indianapolis! Just give me a few minutes to pound my face on the keyboard (that is how I use a computer) until I get things set up properly!

Yep, the "multiples of 8" thing works really good for the car setup. In fact, getting the setup right was the only part of BATracer I ever got good at. :P Well, maybe making semi-realistic paint schemes on relatively small GIF templates, but that's another story. Speaking of which...here's my website full of semi-realistic paint schemes! (Most of them are for Champ Car, but I have a few DTM schemes at the bottom)

Edit: some of the links are broken, but I fixed the DTM ones (click the picture to get the full-size file for uploading to BATracer)

Almost forgot to set up a public practice session, but it's up now! Nearly two hours until the NASCAR Mini Career Challenge begins! :D
