Does anyone here play iRacing? I began my career a few weeks ago, and I'm really enjoying it.

I liked the way how they organized it all, but they still sux compared to dede's way of doing it for theF1 League. :wink:

any links to videos by/of ts drivers in FSR?
im watching some of those races with Huis again (where 1 guy kinda sounds like shyguy). i did that a while ago already...
probably tested rFactor and failed bigtime due to gfx problems, next to probably nervy 3d view and bad car handling for arrow keys. FSR is a mod of rfactor, right?

iracing, not played yet i think

Don't hijack my topic, this is about iRacing!!!! :evil:

Hehehehehe. :wink:

iRacing is very moderated and setup, so it's probably the most player friendly sim racer. It also does a great job of splitting players by skill, so you don't have to race against people who are much faster/slower than you. I've had some great battles, all of them very respectful and clean too.

It's also got the official NASCAR license, and the real life series is mirrored every week in the game, which is really cool! I know most of you guys aren't into oval stuff, but it works very well in iRacing.

I've joined the Giant Bomb (video game website) league. Currently we're running a Formula2000/Mazda MX-5 cup, and are planning an F1 league soon!

hahaha, are you serious? :roll:

They're completely different games! Looking at realism (simulation), TS is a joke. Having said that, TS is not a sim, and is a beautiful game in it's own way. I'll always love TS.

You're comparing apples and oranges.. Calling a game crap for that reason is very ignorant. I hope you're just making a sarcastic joke. :wink:

My apologies for being so defensive. :)

If anyone is interested in playing iRacing, I'm sure you could join the Giant Bomb league (as long as you have an account on the website). It's nice for beginners. Let me know if there's interest. :wink:
