Not a bad price and the wheel isn't great, but much better than the controller.

Spec Z is still on for tomorrow night. We will do AI next weekend, and then Honda Challenge the next!

hustler I'll get with you sometime this week to test out the AI cars. Sounds like a lot of fun, thanks for putting time into it

You guys should drive both Hondas and AI and adjust power. We could not run a real AI power number because half the cars I want to use are already too fast. I took the 9.5 lb/hp and 9.0 lb/tq and worked from there.

On the Hondas I just made-up a power number and went from there. I think they are pretty evenly matches, but the 8th gen Civic is definitely faster than the older Integra. The old 6th gen Civic SI is fast as hell. We may want to add a little power to the EG and ITR so they can keep up.

Keep it. I've finally got a setup that might work. One more hour right? Send me an invite if I'm still online, I'll probably forget it.

Lol, did someone tell you about our race there? It's a fun track, I almost want the racing line though, it's hard to see at times.

-Overall it was a fun race. I wish we would of done these cars on a smaller track, though. The replay is on my storefront, as always.

-Mid-pack seemed to have a nice battle going on the whole race. Payne kept Boost on his toes, even with damage to his transmission. Seemed like there was a nice battle going on for 3rd between Payne and Blank during the middle of the race.

-Traffic did a good job on staying on "racing line" and not hitting the faster traffic. I appreciated it greatly!


Next weekend is the American Iron series hustler has put together. I'll be posting the cars and parts list soon!

I had great fun finally running here, didn't go to bed until 5 am. I was closing in on hustler in the last couple of laps until I misjudged in overtaking slower traffic and went off into the gravel. Had no chance of catching up after that. I felt I could have gotten into the 1.35s, but kept making silly mistakes or hit traffic in difficult to pass places. I really need to find a working mic and be able to scream 'nemesis' and 'move' over when I'm attempting a pass

Was I the only one having difficulty letting faster people go with the rearview mirror swapping left and right? Is this because the car is RHD and the game just flips the interior, mirrors included? I may have squeezed people off thinking I left them plenty of room on the other side. My bad.
