  3. If I where a professional driver, say like maybe Daniel Ricciardo. Id smile real big (like always) and thank sponsors, talk about how hard the guys have been working on the car, optimistically talk about the troubles but how we are gonna over come them, and thank the track designer of the great Autodromo di Modena for curing my insomnia. :sleep::sleep::sleep:

    Whoever designed this track had a couple cocktails too many before drawing it. T4-T5-T6 is like WTF?

    HI
    I'm going through a brief period of sim racing burnout. I'll be back to race someday. Not this day, though ;)
     
  6. LOL @Christian Moreau thats it exactly...when does it end.. its kinda like the energizer bunny.... keeps going and going. Great as a go-kart track I bet, but this car sucks. After 100 miles or so, I was able to pull a 1:18.510... but only once and that is probably slow. Be thankful we aren't running the abarth right ? For giggles run a gt2 car on modena after a long session of the mx5 on ... that is at least exciting... instant 1:07s lol

    My first racing game was Need for Speed Hot Pursuit 2. The quest for the McLaren F1 was real. The memories... :inlove: We've come a long way.

    That would be fun. I haven't raced the F1 GTR in AC much. So long as everybody can keep it on track, it could be fun on this track. :D

    Indeed, I will enjoy listening to all of you scream. :coffee: If only they had actual footage of J.J. Lehto ripping the F1 GTR in 1995 around Le Mans, in the RAIN, at NIGHT. No traction control, no ABS, manual gearbox... A true death wish if I've ever seen one. :p

    I don't have a preference, I need to download the track
     
  19. So the choice is... bordom vs insanity? What a choice!!
     
  20. Ok, break thru. Last few days it was practically impossible to keep from locking the brakes up on the F1 and the MX5 was nearly impossible to trail brake. Though it was me, not being good an all that. Pushed pedal gamma to high, still... half inch travel and the brakes would lock up. Not Right! Googled, re-calibrated the wheel... and suddenly its alive, trail braking... no problems. Something must have happened in my logitech profiler or my assetto calibration, but its way better. In fact, I am wondering how long ive been driving like this?? Managed a 1:17 in the MX5 a few times, and took the world record on the RSR live timing... whoop de do... there is only one other guy on the charts...lol. Anyway... Modena is never gonna be a favorite but its an interesting lesson in driving. My vote is the MX5...ive been at it all week so I hate to switch cars to what is certain gonna be a disaster for me. Freaking Macf1 is a BEAST, and I am still to heavy on the go pedal to keep her from spinning.
