    Do you listen to music while you race? Or is the engine like a symphony to you?

    I drive slower if i listen to music, so in a proper race i never have music on. If im on TDU with a few mates or playing about with a few mods on rFactor ill probably listen to some music. Other thing it depends on is if im talking to people on Ventrilo or not, as if i am, i cant listen to music as i have a desktop mic.

    for me its no music, its a question of earing everything well, engine rev, tyres sound and things like that and real life race driver doesn't listen to music while racing and i can imagine its for the same reasons. :cool:

    I used to listen to music for the first half of my Forza days, but I found I went faster if I turned it off - I find sound has a large bearing on how well I drive.

    I've never tried music but I imagine I would miss a lot of my shifts and make a lot more stupid mistakes.

    Well I'm the first person to vote that I listen to music:D

    I keep the volume under 30% for music so I can still hear all the sounds from the car.

    Always.
    For some reason, I drive best while listening to 80's music.

    No Music.
    I have to concentrate very much during races and must hear every sound of the car.
