Have you become a better driver since taking up racing sims?
LoL Niklas, man you're from Finland nothing that comes out of there is slow or irresponsible (see Mika Hakkinen, Salo, Makinen, Hirvoninen?, Raikkonen, etc etc etc). I wish I lived in the woods although I think then my life would be way more expensive, I would have already wrapped a few cars around some nice spruce trees or even good ol' hard oaks, oooh that hurts just thinking about it.I would have to say yes. I live pretty much in the woods and during the winter i love to "rally drive" through the twisty roads around here (public roads) but i am allways careful and very safe. I started simracing in setpember last year and last winter i took my "rally driving" to a whole new level. Before i only dared to burn away in tops 3rd gear and at the most 40 km/h turns. This winter i was going sideways in most 60-70 km/h turns with 4th and sometimes even 5th gear. There is this one great uphill with some S like curves and a couple of times i got some great slides through there at 80km/h speeds. So i would definetly say simracing has made me alot better at controling my piece of **** real life car.
Also i just want to to say that i am not a irresponsible driver and even though it may sound like it i dont take big risks when i drive especially not with other people. I know these roads very well and i only slide in corners where there is full visibility so i know i'm not gonna meet another car or person midslide.
