    What was your last purchase

    Need to find a new excuse for being shit and slow.

    This year was the first time I watched the Indycar season. I actually started watching it about 4 weeks ago, luckily some nice fellow has uploaded all the races in full to the Youtubes. I've been pleasantly surprised, I've found the season more enjoyable to watch than most of the F1 seasons I've seen. I enjoyed watching the ovals as well as the road courses, and its been a season of close racing without a single dominant driver or team. I'd recommend checking it out if anyone is interested. Its strange how early the season has ended though, or maybe its just that F1 goes on for too long.

    Having a tough decision between what wheel I should buy, or if I should buy any at all. The G29 is probably the better choice for me; better wheel than I have and much better pedals. T300 is a better wheel but the stock pedals are basically what I have (and what I want to upgrade) so it'll end up costing me more long-term. That means that the T500 is only other option, while its probably worth more money I feel that I need a better rig to accommodate the wheel/pedals. The price of the G29 is what annoys me though, drop it by £50 and I'd get it.

    They won't drop ovals as that's what the series is born from. I expect them to do something though, Indycar have always seem to react when there's been problems (see the new car designs after Wheldon). A canopy for ovals makes sense, even if they drop it for road courses. They need to give the driver some protection when going 230mph. Its a terrible tragedy though, can't imagine what his family is going through right now. RIP Justin.

    Justin Wilson is in a coma after a crash in Indycar yesterday. Thoughts with his family.

    Just finished 4th at Spa on iRacing. Top 5 fought all race and finished within 5 seconds of each other. Races like that are worth the subscription.

    Wait till you encounter the Australians and Americans...... I haven't had too many problems with Americans and I haven't faced any Australians, I assume they're all crashing into each other in the V8's and arguing over whether Ford or Vauxhall is better.

    I hate to making gaming stereotypes, but if you ever play a racing game against a Spanish driver they're going to crash into you or someone else. Also, the more I play iRacing the more I need to buy a new/better wheel.

    Just completed my first GT1 race on iRacing. The only thing I can think about now is how much I need a better set of pedals.

    Yeah, not for a while though @Platy  How was it? I just picked up a 3 month sub as its on sale atm (again), looking at what series I want to do. Thinking of GT1 and possibly some Indycar.  Its alright, not sure how populated the races are now but the car itself is very easy to drive, its not a challenge at all. Road Indycar is almost dead i believe so unless its ovals you want to do i wouldn't recommend it I think GT1 and Skippy is the best idea then. I want to do more ovals as I want to try and do the Indy 500 next year. Are you not able to do GT3? Cause if you could do that then that's what you want to go for Unfortunately not, I've only got a C-class licence. GT1 is pretty popular though, I'll give it a go alongside some Skippy.

    I've got no problem with the shark cards. Technically its GTA's DLC as it covers the cost for all the free additions they've put out for the game. I'll never buy one as its easy to earn money in the game but I will thank everyone who does buy them for all this free stuff we've gotten.

    My new favourite thing to do online in Assetto Corsa is Nordschleife Tourist. Whatever car is available and drive around the proper tourist layout with 30 other people, great fun.  They could do more with it. Dream scenario is to have a larger server (50+) with the ability to pick any road car.

    Seems to be a lot of positive feedback regarding the updated AI in Assetto Corsa. Never played against them before the patch but there was a lot of overtaking and aggressive driving when I played briefly last night. Also I tried Nordschleife for the first time last night, my god that was amazing. So much more feel going around the track because of the laser-scanning. Every game should laser-scan tracks.
