I gotcha Tux. I'm saying I"ve seen a counter where it indicates they are repairing the car. It would be nice for some consistency.

I've seen you on several times, but it won't let me im you via the web site. I've also found out they charge you if you host your own session. So forza +1 there. However it is awesome to be able to jump into a race every hour throughout the day.

Oh I was going to ask you, any reason why you skipped over the spec miata stuff and went straight into the mustang?

They do charge you for hosted sessions but it's dirt cheap and only the host pays. I think it's like $1 for 2 hours or something. And you can have more than 16 racers join.

The reason I'm running Mustang is that it's a D class road racing series. The Mazda is Rookie. If I want to level up, my minimum participation requirement(MPR), says I must run D class races. I like the track selection in the Mustang series too. It's just a stepping stone until I can start running the DP, V8 supercars, and C6Rs. I am tempted to try out the Skip Barber car too. Open wheel would be fun, but I gravitate to cars with fenders. I also tend to keep leveling up in Oval, though I'm behind my Road license. Congrats on the win by the way! That's a fun track!

That's still more then free but I guess if it works better then lag box live then it might be worth the dollar.

Thanks Tux I got lucky to say the least. Just ran a miata race and started out front just to be wrecked out by as @ss on the 2nd lap... I guess that's racing for every win there is a dnf.

Did you start off with the miata and then move to the mustang to level up to D? It's been slow going leveling up for me. Oh and congrats to you looks like your sim career is off to an awesome start!!!

iRacing Grand Touring Cup MCR

Multi car racing, being multi class. Miata, Solstice, and Jetta TDI are the classes. I'm D license and can run the Miata and it has a = so it's D class for that series at least. It's interesting running around in a Miata battling other cars, if I were a little better I'd be able to give some of them a real run for their money I think.

Last I looked it was $2 for a hosted session (race weekend) but you can have like 2 hours of practice, qualifying (solo or all cars on track), warmup then race. And you can have the max amount of cars for that track (however many pit stalls there are) which usually seems to be 43 for some odd reason. There are some series's's's that charge something like a $3 entry fee to the series to offset / take care of the cost of hosting all the races. There are some that offer codes for iRacing credit for winning. What's usually best about those, is that if someone pulls a bonehead move during practice they're under the microscope. Pull something stupid during a race, chances are you're booted while the field goes yellow to restart.

I started in the Spec Racer Ford. I was eligible for promotion after 2 races because my safety rating increased so rapidly. You only need 2 races in Rookie class and a SR above 3.0. In D, you need at least 4 races and a SR above 3.0.

Thanks, I've been trying to level up, and I race very clean.

I don't see how you had a clean race two times in the row... I'm 2/4 for getting wrecked by some @hole. oh well it is what it is.

Here's what I've been talking about. This time I got called in for a stop and go penalty (speeding I think) and the guy won't let me go, no count down or count up. The only way to get out of this is to get out of the car and back in.

and with that I think I've kicked the horse enough... sorry.

According to the upper left corner of the screen, yes, you were speeding. No idea on why it's not letting you go...

Maybe... lol I don't remember now. One of those practice modes they don't flag you for doing stuff.

I had that happen to me during a practice session once. I believe that's a bug. I've never seen it in a race though and I have been black flagged in a race.

I just picked up the Cup car and ran an exhibition at Daytona. Yeeeeeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhh! It was awesome. I feel somehow like I'm used to bump drafting. Laughing Anyway, worked my way up to third before getting dumped. It was a blast though. This car sounds INSANE!!

If iRacing is so awesome and more realistic, how come it doesn't have movable cones???

And I'll just throw this out there for Squid and Simcik and anyone else, if you're near Wisconsin, let me know. I'll give you my address and you can come try iRacing. It might not be the best, but it's sure helped me on Forza it seems. Hopefully that continues for the next series!

Sorta, Tux, did you guys see the 1 year price cut in half for Black Friday? $49 for a 1 year renewal, only through the 26th. If you haven't done so, consider it, that's a heck of a deal. $4 a month, yeah baby!

For those of you that don't care, that's cheaper than Live for a year, and way more reliable getting into races on Friday nights cheers

And back on the XBLive front, they're offering 33% off for a renewal price of $39.99. My Gold membership just ran out last night at midnight so I renewed a moment ago.

I think that's why I have my XBLive membership set to expire near the Black Fri. weekend Very Happy

Saw it. Thanks Rem. I'm already good for two years as I signed up for the two-for-one deal. Saved $90.

Ditto, I did the same as Tux. If you keep a look out you can get the xbox live 1 year card for $35 or $36.

Speaking of Tux, hey Tux, I saw you in a race last night (Friday, 10pm EST) and decided to spectate. I got in right as the green flag dropped. Interesting lap 1 hey? Nice avoiding you did. I then noticed I could hop in my car and try to keep pace with you in ghost mode. So I did. The first few laps I closed in on you then the last 3 I ran I started to lose you. But that was a neat function I didn't know I could do!

Yeah they have some good video's on the web page showing how to do that kind of stuff. It certainly isn't intuitive that spectate means you can ghost race. I do wish they had ghost's like in forza, but the split time function using tab is very useful.
