They broke Dirt Road (rally cross) and Dirt Oval into separate licenses about a year ago. I'm still D class in rally but wanted to get my C in dirt oval because the Chilli Bowl comes to iRacing next month and they're going to do a special event for it and now I can take part.

The Fanatec CSL McLaren rim has analog paddles that can be mapped 4 different ways, including as a gas and brake. I have one, I use the paddles as either analog look left/right so I can partial "peek" over, or in the bite point mode for standing start hacks. I doubt you'd be a champion road racer with it but I bet you could run Indy again and be competitive. Worth a look, would require a Fanatec base but the CSL can be had cheap and its 95% the CSW I hear.

A little vid



Awesome! I'll look into that !!!

Rally Cross?

Does it have big jumps and stuffs ?


Yeah, every track has atleast 1 big jump along with a good mix of dirt corners and asphalt. They're all built inside existing tracks which is nice because you don't have to buy anything else. It's a lot of fun. They also have off road stadium trucks coming.

Frustrating night tonight. Running the Nationals on Pocono, having a bitch of a time finding the speed in T1, and on that track 1 mistake = an eternity. Tried running Skippys at Donnington... I officially suck on Donnington.

Was in practice feeling good, smooth, get into quali to see I'm 10 seconds off the pace :eek: . Turn 4, 7, and the chicane I'm just too timid with and it costs me so much time. 4 especially, too timid and you lose a TON of time, so it must be taken fast... but it seems if I get it even a little bit wrong I'm off exploring the greener parts of the track.

Had a decent run in the trucks... but they aren't official so it isn't helping me with my next license heh.

I hate it when I think I really fast, only to see the qualifiers way faster than me... argh.. destroys my confidence and pride....

Wait, Dirt is a separate license?

It's not just oval and road these days?

I have not even logged into iRacing in like..... 3 years. OMG.

It's not that I don't like it. I LOVE it. I was one of the original alpha testers. It's just my health hasn't afforded me the ability to use the damn pedals effectively.

Still looking for a good hand-control wheel kit.

I'd like to get back into iRacing this winter. The Rallycross looks fun. I will have to dig out my old G27 and see if it still works.

Wow. It only took 10 years LOL :)

Indycar is what I liked racing towards the end there. I actually won a series championship and even the Indy 500 one year !

I'm sad to hear about David. That was a genuine good guy :( I hope his fundme does well.

I have a love/hate relationship with Fanatec. Just got the limited edition F1 rim in. So far I really like it, I have a little family going right now.

Gonna be in need of some pedals sooner than later. Been using fanatec v2s for a little while now. Either the main board or more likely the hall effect sensor board on the throttle pedal is shitting the bed.

Emailed Fanatec and was informed that I can no longer buy the parts and the only option is to pay for shipping both ways, the repair, and a $30 fee.

Would love some HPPs or Ricmotech, but that is no where near the budget. May pinch some pennies and hope to grab the PTT pedals or HE sprints.

Unless of course someone here has some decent pedals that need a new home hehe.

Sidenote, the new trucks are fun as hell. I like the pro4 better so far though

Decided to bump this since iracing is seeing a surge of popularity these days. Any new players out there? I signed up a few weeks ago and am currently at a Road C license but I really need to practice and get my pace up. Since I missed out on 8 weeks of season participation by a week or two I am mainly just planning to get my feet wet in IMSA Pilot and Sportscar. If I get to B license I might try VRS Sprint so I can avoid some of the multi-class annoyances.

I resubbed for a month recently but I can't really do much right now because I don't have money for the cars/tracks I don't own yet. So I'm stuck in rookie races, and those get old fast. :/

Ya it sucks having an initial cost like that after subbing. The bright side is that slowly the content costs will drop as you will need less cars and tracks each season.

I tried to stick with popular tracks that are used in multiple series, between 3 cars and 5-6 tracks I spent around $90. I imagine I'll need to spend another $50-60ish next season depending on what tracks are reused.

I still do a few laps from time to time but I haven’t raced in a while, one day I hope to get back to doing regular races every week.

I fired my rig up for the first time in almost 2 years yesterday. After getting it all updated did a c fixed at Miami (oval) , couldn't find the line to save my life, finished dead last, but didn't wreck so I got that going for me lol

They started adding features to support single player racing. The AI needs to be tweaked, but it looks at least looks as good as NR2003 did at its peak.

Ya they have done a lot to improve the service for single player AI racing and for people pressed for time. I mostly do the road racing and pretty much every series on that side has a fixed setup option with a 20-30 minute race length. It makes it a lot easier to jump in and race.

Been loving getting back into iRacing, wish I had some iFriends to race with occasionally. I'm mainly an oval guy but I'd love to do an endurance race at some point. Really getting the itch for a new wheel though.
