670HP #Soon

Staff member Matt Holden posted in the forums what may be coming up leading up to the Daytona 500

You said there are no changes, that’s not true. The gen 6 is a known entity and directly mirrors how the Nextgen works, and that car is currently being changed to the 2022 spec, so if it works on the Gen 6 then it will work on the Nextgen car as well. Also, within the group we put together through the 2021 discussion, there are multiple leagues running Gen 6 superspeedway races in the coming weeks where we can see the changes at work and update what is needed.

Saying nothing has changed is completely false, we’ve been working on this for months, but as I said in that discussion topic we were going to take it off the forum because we had all we needed to move forward and can work in a controlled environment to push things forward

https://twitter.com/iracing/status/1478397812027056136?s=11

https://www.iracing.com/iracing-acquires-monster-games/

https://forums.iracing.com/discussion/15127/iracing-acquires-monster-games#latest

iRacing.com Motorsport Simulations announced today the acquisition of Monster Games, Inc. The Minnesota-based game development studio has a long history of racing game development, including the NASCAR Heat franchise and more recently Tony Stewart’s Sprint Car Racing game. The acquisition will bring another level of expertise under the iRacing roof, and further the company’s ability to bring the highest quality racing games to the broader market, including the console space.

This acquisition along with the previously announced Orontes Games purchase are standalone development studios and projects. The iRacing development team will remain 100% focused on continuing to develop the core product, iRacing. The iRacing platform is regarded as the most realistic and leading PC-based racing simulation on the market”

“We are at a point as a company that we are comfortable building out these two new teams to explore the broader racing game market to ultimately funnel serious sim racers to our flagship product iRacing on the PC.”

“I was getting very worried about Motorsports Games buying up everything possible in the market, they appeared to just be trying to capitalize on something, without caring about the actual product, another EA type situation we all went through in the early 2000s. Good to see iRacing start to protect the sector. We all know the passion iRacing/Papyrus has had for making racing games over the last 30 years, so it is great to see them dip their feet back into console/gaming and do more than just iRacing to fight this growing mess that is Motorsports Games, especially since EA ate up the F1 license.”

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3H5hK3RvGhw

Other Forum Takes:

Robert Crisdale Posts:

“Motorsport Games is another EA – full of cash and trying to buy everything. Papyrus were decimated with licenses taken then and between 2000 -2008 we had crap titles from EA which ultimately spawn Rfactor – modders and Iracing – ex Papyrus. Dave Kaemmer and Richard Garcia for that matter have been thru this all before, but this time are in a position to band with others and improve across the board and add console to the genre – something being PC only has been detrimental to licenses. These acquisitions will help i hope open up new content and secure others that have seen a spread of license purely just because Iracing scope has been limited to PC”

‘Twas the Racing Sim Before Christmas

‘Twas the Racing Sim Before Christmas a simracing themed poem for the holiday season.(original poem by Clement Clarke Moore)

‘Twas the night before Christmas, when all through my nest,
Not a sim was playing, not even Wreckfest;
The wheelbases were all left turned off and bare,
In hopes that a new wheel soon would be there.

It’s probably time to retire to my bed,
But ideas for setup tweaks are dancing in my head;
As mamma looks at statements, her finger does tap,
You reminder her it came out of a bonus; “I promise, no cap”;

From force feedback clipping, there arose such a clatter,
I hit the Escape key, to see what was the matter.
Into the settings, my cursor flew like a flash,
I would get a DD, if I only had the cash.

I mapped ECU buttons, to change on the go,
What that actually does, I only pretend to know,
When, what to my sim racing eyes should appear,
A heavy square box, but what type is not yet clear,

A new Simucube wheel sure would be slick,
Or a DD2 base, those things are sick.
But my expectations will still need to be tame,
Because my gift might actually be something lame;

With new gear across the finish line I would fly,
Up high on my podium, to the rookies I’d say bye,
I’d feel so cool, with gear shiny and new,
Come to think of it, I might need racing gloves too.

Thinking of tin tops, yes cars with a roof
I can’t focus on dinner, my attention is aloof.
Dreaming of my RSR driving round and round,
There is nothing better, than that sweet Porsche sound.

A nice racing boot would look nice on this foot,
But if none are coming, then my socks will stay put;
On Boxing Day, the Nordschleife I’ll attack,
Using cars I bought, in a DLC pack.

Driving a stickshift will someday be merry,
But learning to blipshift sure can be scary!
What’s the best looking sim car, I do not know,
But it definitely isn’t the GT4 X-Bow;

Simming an F1 car can be so much work,
Each time it oversteers, the steering gets a jerk,
What’s my next piece of sim gear, who really knows,
So with that said, I’ll bring this poem to a close;

May your new sim gear be clean as a whistle,
May your car on track be fast as a missile.
May your holiday sim racing be full of delight,
HAPPY CHRISTMAS TO ALL, AND TO ALL A GOOD-NIGHT!

https://www.racedepartment.com/news/twas-the-racing-sim-before-christmas.352/

Why iRacing’s Factory-Supported Mercedes F1 Car Is Such a Big Deal for Sim Racing

In an article from Car Bible they talk about why iRacing’s Factory-Supported Mercedes F1 Car Is Such a Big Deal for Sim Racing saying that, “It is the very first current F1 car to be released on a true simulator in general (the F1 series does not count), and one of a few F1 cars in sim racing to be developed with heavy assistance and technical support from the racing team that constructed it.”

World of Outlaws Week 5

Pennsylvania’s own Braden Eyler posted fast time in qualifying and won heat number 1 to take pole in the feature. New series points leader James Edens wins heat 3 to start in P3.

But just before the feature start James Edens gets struck by the disconnect bug and is only able to rejoin until after being a lap down. This after series leader from last week Alex Bergeron was disconnected in the feature and dropped him to 4th in the standings.

A large crash early in the feature near the front of the field takes out multiple drivers including Hayden Cardwell, which may have ended his hope of a series championship.

Cameron Merriman Takes the lead from Eyler early, but Eyler is able to work in the high line, reclaim the lead and hold on for his second career seres win with Merriman second and another Pennsylvania driver, Logan Rumsey finishing third.

Through sheer consistency, Cameron Merriman takes over the series lead with Alex Bergeron bouncing back to second and James Edens falling to third after the disconnect.

Known issue with AI Seasons

Staffer Michael Hinkle posted in the forums that there is a known bug affecting the use of AI seasons.  If a user creates and races in an AI season session they will currently have to wait for the entire race to complete, AI cars to pit and exit the sim before results will be generated for that session. If they do not wait for these results to be generated the AI season will not advance to the next race. The team is working on a solution to this problem.

V3 Pedal Dampener Fix

Kyle PendygraftThu, Oct 21, 9:59 PM (2 days ago)
to iracerslounge

So after changing out the Different stiffness of pads in the brake pedal, to all green it made the stiffness tighter. The throw was still kind of a long but there’s an adjustment on the brake pedal to fine tune it to where you can have less throw in the brake pedal. Once that was fine tuned I noticed a big difference in braking. I would before the change basically touch the brakes and would apply to much force causing the front wheels to lock up and slide. Now I’m able to apply an adequate amount of force on the brakes and make a smoother turn into the corner and still keep my momentum going, which has caused me to improve on my lap times. I’m going to continue to tweak the adjustment until I feel I can’t do any better. All in all, this chang has already made major improvements for my racing.

Side note this file will be a google drive folder link. I will also send this to you Via Discord. Fantec V3 Pedal Topic.avi

Brian- P33 destroyed early

  • Kyle – P- P F idiot drivers. Lap one doored by a guy who thinks its better to speed up and gain positions, instead of being cautious and avoiding other drivers during a wreck “what an idiot”  Lap who cares. Doored by a guy who got doored and put in the grass and decided to stay in the gas and then loses it and just slams up into me. Lesson everyone, HAMMERING down while out of control in the grass never ends well. “What an idiot” Rant over!

Hall – P. 1.  A very stolen win, but you get them stolen too, so took it.  Was running top 5 for most of 2nd half of race, as the set kicks in better high use track.  Caution with 15 to go, pit from third, gain a spot, restarting 2nd.  Iracing puts me on inside and gives me race control.  I go early, original leader didn’t think I had race control.  They were running me down with 3 to go but running out of time.  Caution.  Re-Rack, get a good start, hold if finishing by less than a car length ahead.

  • Sunday Open
    • Kyle – P. P-PASS
    • Hall – p. BS starts right back up,  3 guys can’t hold a lane in the first 5 laps, destroyed

  • Sunday fixed 
    • Mike -p wrecked out – was missing all the big wrecks for a while – had worked my way all the way to the lead – eventually we had a deal where i was first on tires with 9 in front who stayed out – took it 3 wide and guy was clueless and just came up into us – the just riding around and get destroyed again by a guy loose coming down into the bottom lane. About 400 irating in 4 races lost

Brian – p21 made it all the way to a green white checker before getting destroyed

  • Race : Martinsville
  • Wed Open:
    • Hall –p wrecked on lap 1, unavoidable.  Fixed damaged, climbed to 12th around lap 200, engineblows.  Right back to the slump
    • Ellis – p wrecked out. Had a perfect car and a pretty good race run and top-five right up until about 40 to go and some guy divebombing like crazy took me out and I couldn’t steer the car but try to keep it on track that was a major mistake and ended up wrecking a couple people because I couldn’t steer. 

Kyle P P-13 Not much to say other then nothing put pace laps!

Coke Race – Finale at Texas

Bobby ““If I’m side-by-side with Clampitt, and one of his teammates is in third, he’s going to push him by me. That’s a scenario, or I could have one of my friends behind me and they could push me by for the championship. It’s kind of like a mix between your typical intermediate and Daytona….”

@MitchelldeJong1 takes the pole with a 28.899 second lap time.
@KeeganLeahy will start alongside.@bobbyzalenski will start 9th and
@LoganClampitt_ is 31st.

Seven laps on the board. They’ve all been led by @MitchelldeJong1
Like a hot knife through butter, @LoganClampitt_ is cutting through the field, up 10 spots after 12 laps, currently P21.
Meanwhile, @bobbyzalenski is sitting tight in seventh after 17 laps. He’s up only two spots since the start.
LAP 25: @GarrettLowe_6, who entered 13-points above the relegation line, runs 40th, 6 laps down. Not sure what happened to him, but that might push him into relegation for the off-season. Connection issues for Lowe.
@MitchelldeJong1 has still led them all. @KeeganLeahy is lurking.

Here comes @BowlinGraham!He’s sizzlin’ as he moves to the bumper of the No. 32 for 2nd place.
LAP 43: All of the @eNASCARCocaCola #iRacing Series Championship 4 drivers are now inside the top-10.

LAP 57: @bobbyzalenski and others pit.
LAP 58: @MitchelldeJong1 and @KeeganLeahy pit.
LAP 59: @LoganClampitt_ pits.

https://twitter.com/iRacing/status/1448103348746469382

LAP 68: @MitchelldeJong1 has cycled back to the lead.
This is the closest these two have been all race for the lead. A few lapped cars on slightly fresher tires went and took their laps back, allowing Leahy to close in
@LoganClampitt_ is the fastest man on the track, now in the Top 5 at lap 88.
LAP 94: NEW LEADER, @KeeganLeahy

  •  54 to go: @LoganClampitt_ pits.
  • 53 to go: @MitchelldeJong1 pits.
  • 51 to go: @bobbyzalenski pits.

https://twitter.com/iRacing/status/1448110791639642119

  • 41 to go: @lyonschoice crashes on pit road.
  • Move @LoganClampitt_ around @swilson3_ and effectively into second.Now he will try and chase down @KeeganLeahy  with 40 laps to go.
  • 38 to go: @LoganClampitt_ has closed the gap to @KeeganLeahy down to just under 2 seconds.
  • 32 laps to go.@KeeganLeahy leads by 1.5 seconds over @LoganClampitt_

 29 to go: @GarrettLowe_6 is TIED with @JakeNichols73 for the final stop to avoid relegation. And I believe Nichols has the tiebreaker.

https://twitter.com/iRacing/status/1448114454474985474

  • Just over 20 laps to go.@KeeganLeahy has half a second over @LoganClampitt_. Clamp has CAUGHT Keeg all on green flag racing. What a RUN!
  • 17 laps to go… was @KeeganLeahy saving a little for the end while @LoganClampitt_ had to push to get there? Does Clamp have anything left in the tank?

  • As the field catches the leaders, @KeeganLeahy is starting to pull away… and look who is back in the conversation! @MitchelldeJong1 he here! FIVE LAPS TO GO!
  • THE NEW CHAMPION! @KeeganLeahy WINS THE 2021 #eNASCAR Coca-Cola @iRacing Series CHAMPIONSHIP!!!

@rayalfalla made the climb from outside to move inside the Top 20, but it was at the expense of Garrett Lowe, who had connection issues early.

The HeMy New Cockpit Build Thread – The iRacers Lounge Edition

Well today’s focus would be the pedal system mounting.

I really struggled with getting the old mounts off the stainless steel rod. There’s a little bit of rust and slight imperfections and one side was really really stuck. I ended up putting the stainless rod into the vice put my feet on it and yanked like crazy until it came off.

now to get the new mounts on we’re just as hard. I managed to get three of the four on eventually but the fourth one just won’t go onto the rod. I even took a drill to it to try to open it up a little bit and I was getting close to getting it on but made the fatal mistake of shoving a screwdriver through the screw hole to help twist it and it broke it.

Made a trip to Ace Hardware to see if they have one of course they do not.

so I placed another McMaster order, ugh.

C849856F-6C5B-4B1F-9856-DB90546C0E70.jpeg

So I got the shifter and mouse pad mounted very easily. Rock solid too.

B532769F-C07C-4418-85CA-AB44429C67F6.jpeg

Now moving on to the integrated triple monitor mount. Right off the bat I’m concerned it’s too close to the wheel to have my cell phone a top it. So I put the uprights on the far two slots.

CE64616F-9D01-4007-8528-9D0B80849A88.jpeg

Then the vario VESA adapters. These come in 1 million pieces and initially was daunting to try to figure out I sorted the pieces in the different piles before I figured out how to do it.

image.jpg

So got the xero play triple pivot adapters installed. Vero vesa adapters are just awesome. It’s a really neat design that allows you to really dial in the alignment of the monitors. Money well spent for sure.

F7D34DF3-42A2-406D-93DF-B4B696789705.jpeg

So another day off today as I dig into trying to finish it up. The emergency button I used zip ties and put it below the mouse pad.

Headphone hook is under the keyboard, and power supply on the outside bottom lower left.

6B865431-393B-47DF-BDB5-4BE9C5F4C1AB.jpeg

Then the pedals. I got the replacement part that I broke yesterday, I didn’t even try to put it on I put it in the vise and drilled it out a bit of course it wasn’t that easy I had to drill it out more than I thought and I went back-and-forth maybe five or six times before I was able to get it on.

Finally the couplers three of the four went on I had to drill out one of them again it took me about 10 different tries before I got it open enough to take that rod.

8910F39C-24EC-44CF-84AB-82A7B0906260.jpeg

Then the awesome computer tray from advanced Sim racing.

This worked for me because I didn’t bolt them on the regular uprights I put them on the uprights that I extended above the custom pedal mount I went 2 feet up instead of one on two of the sides…

F86A0F5E-F19F-495B-A081-3EB22D34813C.jpeg

Then I mounted the Altec Lansing speakers and the Philips hue light strip using zip ties…

C256359B-2874-4180-8AAF-7A1490F9E828.jpeg

Then I went about removing the old cockpit and doing cleanup that hasn’t been done in 7+ years. It was too hard to move so it didn’t.

E87B0BC8-5D07-4F13-BDC7-B0EA266A14FC.jpeg
2C39AAAC-6879-4BF3-BE2A-3F2ABCD6256F.jpeg

Then after cleanup I created what I call a network station with my network hub and my Philips Hue Gateway. I then got a metal hook with zip tied three cables for strain relief power network and audio. These coil together and make a snake running to the rig. There’s also a strain relief Velcro hook at the computer… this makes it easy to unplug the entire thing with three plugs coil the snake away and I can roll it around the room easily…

EC939462-1660-448B-A6D4-55E2DB9B7B35.jpeg
D6C70E3D-DA33-4A0A-8EDA-26F7205FBECE.jpeg

Wiring is complete except for the new power strip I put an old one in there for now.

Next up we’re gonna do a spot check and turn everything on and see how it works before doing cable cleanup.

I took the day off from work tomorrow to finish the project. Most of tomorrow will be fine tuning and adjustments. Cable cleanup. And really figuring out what to do with all the crap that I took out of my office I basically made a huge pile outside and a huge pile in the dining room. Likely that it’ll just be shoved into boxes and put in the garage to deal with later since I’m so tired.

I still need to install the candy dish and figure out a place for my cell phone and a cup holder.

and I’m pretty sure I’m gonna get a front mounted to the motor button box sooner rather than later.

So today I worked on getting the alignment right I had to move the heel Plate up much higher and closer to the seat. I didn’t move the entire pedals forward about 4 inches. Then the integrated monitor mount had a slight lean to it. So after considerable effort we got that straightened out. All wiring is in place except for the power strip I’m awaiting delivery of that next. Then cable cleanup.

I also spent a good part of the day with my wife’s assistance cleaning the office out from top to bottom removing a lot of clutter as well they have a much more open space.

I also mounted the chocolate holder.

C9B5DBE8-E8CE-4280-9757-49C1F0D2D07A.jpeg

Then I installed the new power strip and did the cable clean up and did the fine-tuning of the alignment of the monitors.

first road test driving, the gearshift is too far away I could probably live with it but it needs to be 4 inches closer maybe five.

7D29F915-7269-4945-A0D9-A238E2C1537E.jpeg

My son came over to help a bit and he took one look at it and said it’s called the “Superman Sim”… The colors on the seat mostly blue with red and a touch of yellow….

So it’s pretty much done I’m going to move the shifter, I got to put the end caps on, but this is it… with lights on. Going racing at some point tonight for sure.

My eyeball is dead center of the monitors top to bottom and left right. I can’t tell you how much of a value it is to pay extra for those special vesa mounts. They made alignment a breeze.

I got the shifter moved. Ran some AI racing first.

And get volume level set nice and loud…

I then ran a Hosted Street stock at Southern national. And then a Hosted Daytona prototype at old Texas oval in the dark. And I won! First win in the new Superman cockpit!

This morning, hammered in the end caps either the rubber mallet. I am glad I bought that tool as it would’ve been really hard to do without it.

Spent about an hour cleaning up the Obutto revolution cockpit.

it’s now officially for sale, you must pick up, 500 bucks. Gilbert AZ. Please someone come get it…

5BB65B5F-4B26-4E31-B6C8-E20E7A528C8A.jpeg

I did place an order today for the ignition controls button box, which will be the final piece of the puzzle. That will conclude the project and so far so good it’s quite comfortable but will still take some getting used to.

Lessons learned: Went over budget a lot. Lol. I use to be a project manager so I am trained professionally to not do that but, oh well it’s only money. My point of reconcile is when I decided I to not worry about the cost I am finishing the project regardless, I only want to do it once, so buy the best you can get.

Wheels. This simple add-on is my favorite feature. I can unhook the snake and sit and spin it in circles. It is so cool that it is self contained and easily movable.

Seat and Belts. Yeah it’s a bit over the top with a stationary rig, but it works well and I think will actually improve my driving. It also gives it color against the black framing which makes it pop.

Phillips Hue strip. The pics and ambiance speak for itself.
