Haha...no one noticed? Or it came off by itself?

 

In the good old days, they just kept driving, with aviation goggles, using a cloth to clean them as needed. They were the men. These are just boys.

 In the good old days they also lasted an average of about two current seasons worth of races before dying in a fireball... rolleyes.gif

Exactly. Where's the valor gone? Wusses.

 

Well, in all seriousness, nowadays its more like driving a video game simulator. Given how easy it is for a Playstation competition winner to drive a real car....

That's mean. In a good way. But I also have 6 autocrossing championships to my name. I laughed.

Pros don't play Gran Turismo, they're mostly into GTR2 or R-Factor. wink.gif

No, pro's play Grand Prix Legends and bang on endlessly about how realistic the 'skating on ice' physics are.
post #457 of 1282

I've never played Grand Prix Legends myself, although I've been intrigued from time to time. I'm more of a GTR2 man myself, although I'm planning on trying rFactor 2 when its fledging is more full.

 

Considering the number of virtual racing devotees on Head-Fi, I've always thought we should organize a Head-Fi Virtual Series - but the issue is that none of us seem to play the same games tongue.gif

 

EDIT: And I think the advances in simulation equipment probably have as much to do with the ease of transfer as any potential dumbing-down of race cars; my own car isn't anything near as computerized as a Formula car, and I've found that simulation driving helps noticeably with the real car.

Nice idea. Taking it over to the sim racing thread.

I've tried GP Legends once. Its not easy. If its as real as they say, then yikes, 60s cars were fun.

 

I've played GTR2 for a few years on and off, but now I've reached a point where it seems the best way is to have a proper seat, steering wheel and a 3 monitor setup which I don't have the space for.

 

If you add the low frequency transducers for vibration, the only part left are the G forces. Other than that simulators are very good at creating a realistic experience.

Haha....no wonder there are no women in F1.

But women have a lower centre of gravity and better hand-eye coordination.


I think Newey is just sexist ... um, and anti-Australian. BAN HIM!

Ban Vettel......

On a somewhat related topic, one of the programmer who worked on the "sound of Honda" video looks like a headfier :



Not that anybody cares, but at least it acts as a bump

Nice with more simracers in here. rFactor 2 is great buy it already. I am part in an endurance league we have done 6h of Mid Ohio and 12h of Sebring so far. Monza next and the season ends with 24h of Le Mans of course. 

 

Favourite sim of all time and never getting old Richard Burns Rally. Looks like it will never ever be beaten.
