1. Exciting to see ongoing development, but I think the IR community is thirsty for day/night + weather more than they are bits falling off the car. If and when it comes out, the Tuesday night league could will be a great environment for testing the limits of contact and parts falling off. #jokes
2. Drive what the people want to see and there's no question they want more Ford GT.
3. In my mind many! But a two year old at home keeps me planted in TX.

1. I just hope it improves consistency.
2. I will keep the Porsche, it seems easier to set up, which is definitely my weakest point.
3. Went to MotoGP in April, going to F1 in October. Hopefully going to World Rallycross in September. Living near COTA has its advantages.

1. What are your thoughts on new ongoing iRacing damage model?
Cautiously optimistic. Looking forward to hopefully less chance of bending the steering from any random damage. Curious to see how they deal with debris persistence.
2. Will you keep the same car for next season? Explain why!
Most likely. I'm new to this and feel the more time I spend in the same car the more I can improve as a driver.
3. How many real live races are you attending in a year? What track and series?
Usually catch an event or two at Brainerd International for drag, drift and road course events, Elko Speedway for nascar short track events and volunteer for several pro stage rallies throughout the year in MN or MI.

Cautiously optimistic, hopefully with this they will fix the Global MX-5 wheel bug
2. Will you keep the same car for next season? Explain why!
Most likely, my teammate has been very good with car setups and I'm starting to become more familiar with it. Plus with only 3 Ford GTs in this series I think it makes for good diversity.
3. How many real live races are you attending in a year? What track and series?
Outside of local autocross events (lol we said races) I will be going to VIR this weekend to drive in the ChampCar Endurance series. Looking forward to making the transition from sim racer to real (hobbyist) racer.

Well summer has proven to be a lot busier than I was anticipating, so it looks like I'm going to miss the rest of this season including tonight. If anyone wants my spot, have at it.
See you next season!

I am in the same boat as Richie. Got in-laws in town ALL WEEK, and will be away for work for Round 9. Hope to make Round 10, but it depends on work again. :(

I will try and make it tonight, no promises though.

Unacceptable. How exactly am I supposed to develop a dramatic three way rivalry with you and Kita if you drop out??

Well that didn’t go as planned for me at all, and hopefully I didn’t cause any issues for guys trying to avoid me during my spin fest! I purchased new pedals for last weeks race and since then I’m a total mess? I’ve been moving them and adjusting them trying to find the sweet spot. I’ve also always raced barefoot, and last night decided to go with a pair of sneakers on, bad move! During practice and qualifying I did pretty good, but was only running short stints, then during the race I was not able to keep a good feel on the pedals. This game has humbled me so much, and I’m truly out classed it seems. Hopefully I get my butt back in order soon, once again I hope I didn’t screw anyone up!

I can't catch a break. When I gridded I found that my Accuforce base was loose. Did not have time to pull my goggles off to check.
Caused some issues with control.Which resulted in a couple of spins.
