    I wouldn't worry too much about your internet connection unless it's absolutely diabolical. Mine is about 0.9Mb up and 0.2 Mb down and I never have any problems. Being based on the GPL networking...

    I've been into iRacing for about 4 months now, racing several times a week and I can't remember the last time I was in a race with an idiot or wrecker. Not everybody is fast or technically perfect...

    As I get older (50 this year - Yay!) I find myself gravitating towards simulations more than anything else. My reactions aren't really up to anything twitchy nowadays but I can lose myself in a game...

    I downloaded it overnight last night, sat down tonight to fire it up for the first time and..... I have to download it again overnight tonight to upgrade to v1.01. Hope this doesn't happen often.

    I have to admit, I'm genuinely interested in why threads like these start. The originator is generally not open to reasoned argument and hasn't come for advice. Any attempt at counter-argument or...

    Not at all. You have clearly decided that you do not want to play iRacing any further. I'm not trying to convince you otherwise. Perhaps you would prefer to lead poor deluded souls to salvation and...

    If I ever have to reinstall FSX and its installed addons from scratch, I'll be looking at over 240GB. Not going to happen.

    Only ever played it as pure stealth and loved it for that. It's one of very few games I've ever played to completion without any sort of cheating. Maybe treating it as a standard FPS didn't work so...

    Jackasses exist in all online racing games. They are a fact of life. The difference is that iRacing gives you the opportunity to leave them behind if you are not a jackass yourself. It took me three...

    Your views on SR are well known and regularly vehemently put but my experience is different. Yes there have been unfair occasions (although I seem to get 0x penalties when hit from the rear) but it's...

    I reckon the system in iRacing is the closest we have to real-life racing progression at the moment. Think about any real entry-level series (say the Clio Cup in the UK) and the newbies will...

    No but it's the one that best suits me. It's well organised, reliable and I've yet to have a race that felt in any way unfair. I've always been matched against others of a similar skill to me, never...

    If you treat iRacing like a career more than a game, you'll get a lot more out of it. Hoon around like an idiot as most people do on the public servers for other games and you won't get anywhere. As...

    I've put a lot of time into Race07. Never got on too well with GTRE (seriously - GT racing without Ferrari or Porsche?) but the WTCC cars and Minis have used up an awful lot of spare hours.

    Didn't Tiff Needell have something to do with voiceovers in TOCA2? I remember seeing him enthuse about the game on TV before I got it and realised he was in it too.

    Not sure if we are talking about the artificial floating racing line or indicative road texturing but the first time I met the latter was in GPL. It added greatly to the immersion.

    I remember the original TOCA being about the hardest AI I had or have ever raced against, a view almost entirely set by the experience of trying to pass them down the back "straight" at Thruxton. You...

    I reckon I could at least get an A-10 started and onto the runway if I had to. DCS is brutally and fantastically anal.

    No Corvettes that I've seen. There are a couple of Mustangs planned at some point (probably not release) and a couple of Caper stock cars but that's about it for Yank Tanks.

    I haven't played PCars for a while. My racing time is extremely limited right now so I'm concentrating on iRacing. However, I can say a lot of effort is being up into the physics and tyre models if...

    I don't have any TCs, just lots of tracks and cars. It's hard to find anyone to race them against nowadays though.
