Ahhh yes, tires. Ouch. Lol

First purchase I made for the Vette and god damn it hurt, ~$1k for a set and those weren't even the R888's that I wanted. Ended up with Nitto 555r rears and 555G2 fronts. They've been great even with the nitrous.

Next set will be R888's and more expensive. Gotta pay to play doe, amirite?

The GTI was so nice to mod. Cookie cutter mod path, simple diy shit, cheap mods. Every time I wanna do something to the Vette its like $1k down the drain. Headers alone are so damn expensive! I got my whole nitrous kit (literally everything) for less than a set of used headers. It's crazy.

13.9 mpg average with this current tank, but I don't drive it every day and every time I do drive it I beat on it, so it's no gas saver. I could probably squeeze decent mileage out of it, but where's the fun in that? enjoy that whine.

I was able to get over 30mpg with my '01 Z06 if I drove it gently, used 6th a lot, etc.

Not much fun, true. But the other way empties the wallet pretty quickly, which makes it harder to have other kinds of fun.

Man if you could crank out 30mpg AVG on this car I applaud you.

Sure cruising at 60-70 in 6th gear can get me high 20's almost 30's on instant MPG but avg mpg is hard to pass 18 with how much I drive it.

Regardless, it's a blast and I try to not think about the gas lol but it does add up. Gonna pump some gas later and hoon with the bottle. Maybe I'll find that CTS-V from a few weeks ago...

Been playing the Gran Turismo beta last couple days and went and got the G29 wheel for it. Mang online racing is fun and infuriating. I hateeeee the fuckers who use my bumper as their brake and the way the game is setup I get time penalties when someone else slams me into a wall. Still going to buy the game though

pick up f1 2016 and asseto corsa both fun games

I think im going to mod the brake pedal on the g29, the bushing is way too hard to get full braking power.

Also i highly recommend you mess with wheel settings for each game, definitely helps.

Exactly why iRacing is moar better. You have a rating that follows you throughout the service... and asspacking people hurts you. If your rating gets low enough you get booted from the service.

If iRacing isn't an option, I'd at least try to find a private league to run in (assuming those exist in GT?) At least those tend to have rules about that sort of thing. I generally avoid all things online when it comes to racing outside of iRacing or private rooms where I know people, specifically for the reasons cited above.

Only negative to iRacing's point system, you also get points if someone hits you. But at least this makes you think twice about driving too aggressive and taking excessive risk, where you're putting other drivers in danger.

Oh dang. In4FreeHookup.

iRacing can get expensive, cause you have to buy the tracks/cars. But you can start out with the free stuff and slowly work your way towards the paid content. It's nice that you can take a break and come back to it later on and subscribe again, you won't lose what you purchased.

In the beginning... it will be bumper cars. Don't focus on winning, focus on surviving and finishing in a decent position. If you can get away from the pack, do it. Otherwise just try to get a good safety rating.

I won 3 races during the beta of GT using that strategy. I usually qualified top 5 and even though I was faster than the better qualifiers starting out, I would let them all take each other out and usually by the third lap I would dive bomb them while they were rub racing and just pulled away from the pack to victory. Iíve found that a lot of the best qualifiers are not good consistently and if youíre patient, victory is very much within reach on any given track

asseto corsa and gran turismo are fine racing sims...just gotta join up with SNAIL (sunday night american interactive league)

i was part of it for awhile, you have to use a certain car with certain tires etc etc and set a qualifying lap. from there your time will be reviwed and you will be put into 1 of i think 8 divisions. The division you end up in will determine skill, you will sit in this division until the moderators deem you good enough to move up. Races are sunday night around 8 or 9 i believe, there is no racing lines OR assists besides abs (model depending) and make/model is predetermined a week before.

When they announce the cars and track a week before, they have private rooms you can practice in with all snail members. Practice is huge part to winning come sunday...the people in your division will pretty much be your friends instantly since youll see them in practice room throughout week and on sunday night. Pretty cool actually...log in to your room at 7pm for prerace practice etc....room be like "hey bob. jim. rick. carlos. sanderz. hows everyone doing?"

SNAIL is pretty tough league, they have forums just like this where you can talk about races and what not. If you get bumped in a race or dive bombed etc, you can submit it to your division leader for review. They have all the videos saved and will penalize those who cause incidents. Pretty cool how organized it is.
