    In the latest of Niels Heusinkvelds 'Talk and Drive' videos, the popular Dutchman tries his hand at something completely different... the iRacing Nissan GTP ZX!

    Niels Heusinkveld is now well known as the man behind the physics at Reiza Studios, and as such he has released several rather interesting 'Talk and Drive' videos showcasing a number of new content additions to Reiza developed games in recent years. Today Niels tries his hand at something completely different, driving the latest Group C machine to be released for iRacing.com! Watch the video below to see how the physics expert rates the latest iRacing offering.

    Talk and Drive Episode 20 - iRacing Video:

    Bringing the second IMSA generation car to the sim, the Nissan GTP ZX Turbo has been made available for purchase alongside the admirable Audi A90 Quattro. Born of the desire to beat the all concurring Porsche 962, the Japanese factory spent four seasons racing in the IMSA series until clinching its first Manufacturers title in 1989. The '89 season was a successful one for Nissan, and to celebrate that success iRacing have lovingly recreated the car for players to enjoy within iRacing.

    For those of you how are perhaps less familiar with the Nissan story, iRacing have recorded a nice documentary launch trailer video for the car that can be seen below.

    Someone tell Neils to get rid of the splits he needs to press TAB.

    Good article btw and nice handling by Neils as well.

    @Niels_at_home : What Lorenzo said: But you won't know if you are "gaining, gaining, gaining". :D
    BTW 1: Nice video. :thumbsup:
    BTW 2: Hope to see you do "a talk and drive" with a real race car at Zandvoort or Assen. :)
  5. Is that th8rs or th8a he's using? I'm surprised he uses such a "low end" shifter when everything else is so highend.

    Don't get me wrong, I have both shifters and really like them but I'm sure there's something much better on the market and one would think that Niels himself uses only highend stuff.

    Or maybe it's really a statement how good th8rs/a actually is.

    I thought it was neat to see him try out the Nissan in iR. Its a hard combination to pass up, a GTP car on the Ring.

    Is that gasoline I smell? Premium Member

    I was asking myself the same question but shrugged it off. Looks like one, but with a sawed-off stick to make the throw feel shorter.

    I'm thinking about making that kind of "modification" to my th8 all the time because I liked the quick action of the g27's shifter better , and now I cannot unsee a modded th8 in his video :D

    Maybe he is just using a custom version of his own shifter. As you can check out in this video.
  9. The GTP-ZX was not a Group C car btw. The NPT was closer to GpC. IMSA had different size fuel tanks than GpC.
    John Morton had a serious blow over at Lime Rock in the ZX....ouch! ....an absolute beast of a car.....
  10. It has to be a good sign if you can't talk and drive on a talk and drive.
