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.

irSidekick Controls (free app)

Martin Lanza posted the irSidekick which is an application that provides a graphical way to save and switch controls.cfg files. People who have multiple wheels, with different control assignments and use these wheels on the same car either have to reassign controls or save/copy controls.cfg files, both methods are clunky and tedious.

    1. Ellis – p30 – was 27th when people started pitting under green on final run – decided nothing to lose stay out waiting for a caution – cycled up to 10th, pitted when out of fuel, and caution as I rolled onto pit lane. Ended up lap down fighting for lucky dog and took it 3 wide but the inside guy clipped apron just a hair, and we touched spun. 

Hall – p27 was running 20ish last pit stop made a mistake rushing in, Mike was out of gas, wasn’t sure if I could pass him or not and in the process I shifted into 1st and hurt the engine.

NASCAR iRacing Series

Fri open: MartinsvilleEllis –   pwrecked out – got cleaned out from behind on lap 20, then 10 minutes optional i roll around for about 50 laps then it blows

Kyle – P-Mad and left

Hall – P. 24, third restart guys in front of me wreck out of turn before before s/f.  I evade but get passing under yellow.  Endup five laps down on a BS call.  This is why I don’t feel guilty about how I got the win at Kansas.

  • Sunday Open
    • Hall – p. 16,  ended up with over 17x after running clean and in the top 10 near the end, a driver just completely dive bombs all the way on to the grass takes me out,   working my way back up another driver turns across my nose on the straight away, then says I turned into him.  What a fool.  This end of the season has sucked ass.

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

NASCAR iRacing Series

Fri open: 

  • Ellis –   pwrecked out. Just riding on the outside behind somebody and the guy in the inside that comes right up and to me and put it both in the wall 

Rochette P33 car came up from the grass hit a dumbshit that was on the front stretch apron and right into my driverside door killing my car thanks asshat

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

Tom D – p20. One caution. Made mistake (Rochette’d) the pit stop and sped down pit road. 40 second penalty.  Fell 2 laps down. Could only work my way back to 20th. On to Martinsville

  • 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 59: @LoganClampitt_ pits.

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!!!

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.

1AA889A1-AF04-4C11-B36D-DB516FE6B803.jpeg
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.

F7A599F5-E4FA-413A-A320-6DD52FD5AA7C.jpeg
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…

E689184C-1ECD-4DFD-98D5-8E2BDF3F9F7C.jpeg
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.

21698D13-2CF9-4AF7-9A15-1DA8BDDCB5F7.jpeg
1917CF16-768B-4839-B765-36FF77AF2303.jpeg
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.

B9357B77-5EDF-4590-8020-5332A919BB83.jpeg

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…

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.

    • Kyle – P P3. Started outside pole. Lap 1 i slid into the back bus stop and hit another car and got spun down out of the groove and sat there for a bit for traffic to go by. Dropped back to P23 and just started working my way towards the front. Had a guy decide he was gonna try to beat me to the front bus stop and ended up basically T-boning me. But continued on and race my way to a P3 on a 1 stop strategy.

My New Cockpit Build Thread – The iRacers Lounge Edition

Next up got from Etsy a cell phone holder.

This by turned out to be a bust because my big a@@ phone with otterbox doesn’t fit in it. Well it does but you kind of have to push it down in there nice and firm.

So, it’s been relegated to my candy dish. I had a concept for bolting a horizontal ring that a steel bowl could sit in where I would store my Hershey chocolates and sweet tarts. A necessary need for any oval race. I never did find the ring I was hoping for so this will suffice I can put the individual Hershey chocolates in there, maybe six at a time.

A3002F8C-E4EC-4F13-AB34-5CC3E495CA22.jpeg
69268282-7B6E-4AC0-8761-56496EA56FCF.jpeg

i’ll probably figure out something different for the phone I’ve been eyeballing this but it’s so darn expensive.

Got another arrival the Seat Slider… got the seat stuff from Jegs. I’m still waiting on the seatbelt though…

A1F5CEA1-9C19-446F-8AEF-7DBF23F5827A.jpeg

So far I’ve spent about 100 at Home Depot in two trips. Had to place another order for McMaster Carr to get smaller t nuts for the pedal mount hardware.

Most of the rig arrives Monday or Tuesday I believe I’m getting all the other stuff first…

I’m realizing that it’s going to take me a long time to finish this rig… 

Especially the way I want to get it done with the wiring right. I’m gonna have downtime for sure. 

The power strip I ordered the run the whole thing doesn’t even arrive until the 14th…

3D847695-D0DA-4B83-B8A5-488A4F5C5110.jpeg

My goal is it will be self contained on wheels, all cabling is on the rig and the only thing attached to the outside world is an ethernet cable a power cable and an audio cable (to a sub)…

The other thing is where do I put the new power strip. It’s got to be centrally located I intend to run my USB cables to the two phones and headphones. And those are fairly short cables. I’m kind of thinking to the underside of the computer tray somehow.

Also have my hue light strip to power. The hue hub I can plug in elsewhere I think. I’m also trying to figure out how I’m going to implement the Philips hue strip. In other words where am I going to mount it. My initial thought is behind the three monitors shining down somehow.

C14D714E-9481-466F-A2D0-DFBB11111BE8.jpeg

I have No Idea at all what I’m doing for sound yet. Guess I need to figure it out. Trying to make do with speakers I have (they’re decent left and right computer speakers but no real way to mount them…) but don’t know where to put or mount them. I don’t think they are mountable. Might be zip tie city behind the monitors is my first reaction…

And another arrival… if there’s any one thing that I’m overdoing this is probably it yeah oh my these things are huge. I was concerned that the top of the belt goes from 3 inch to 2 inch I was thinking oh that’s gonna be too narrow but heck no these things are huge…

524A6F49-7DC2-42A4-AB49-7333D97C465B.jpeg
image.jpg

Mounting these is still an unknown… I saw somewhere where people were taking the lap and the crotch belt and attaching them together under the seat to each other with no other anchor. So I could do that. They all attached to a ring under the seat and pull on each other. But the shoulder belts because the seat is moving I think they have to attach to the seat somehow it might be weird if they’re attached to the frame and I’m sliding the seat forward and backwards getting in and out…?

Got one more arrival today the computer shell from advanced Sim racing.

B1DB1F4F-8F0F-48AC-A9AE-0C4AB4263919.jpeg

OK I got put together the advanced Sim racing computer tray. Very nice. I must say, the lack of offerings on this particular item I was a bit surprised about this was the only one I could find that would fit my tower and it barely fits.

799CD8A4-CD77-4F4C-A08D-13EAD8F3C3D2.jpeg

This is something I’m really going to like because my computer currently sits on a piece of particle board spanned across a couple stacks of ammo boxes… #OutOfTheGhetto

I got another piece of the puzzle today, these are the brackets to hold the power supply for the wheel. It’s going to be either mounted under the seat or under the pedals likely against the frame.

462F8C33-5BCD-4683-8AAA-AA101DAA4CE7.jpeg

I had to place a second order to McMaster Carr for some M6 T nut packages as I had only ordered M8s. I have two extra which will be perfect for the shifter Install.

So now I was able to install these metal round coupler things that the pedals will hang off of.

i’ve only hand tightened it as I’m sure they’ll need to be adjusted once I put the pedals on them.

843E874E-F1CF-44C0-84CF-EB3E567F88E2.jpeg

Well the rig finally arrived and the official build begins!

75ACABB1-F729-4618-BA06-4F6358FA5943.jpeg
6EA6FEBE-F116-4FAD-9B8C-741C4CDDD094.jpeg

Wheels on the front a bit funky but functional I got them diagonal with two bolts in the same slot but it’s still rocksolid and the weight distributed directly above the wheel spoke.

I just love the idea that everything is up off the ground and all cabling self-contained.

B479DC04-740B-4D54-B30F-86084FC4C78E.jpeg
5A34EF45-DE04-4D36-982B-58D1DC5DAF0E.jpeg
A3CBB69B-2218-4982-885C-E1D29535AA52.jpeg

I got a lot more done than I thought I would tonight.

571D3A42-30B8-43B9-962B-63B16BC4A100.jpeg
5000E9EB-E4DF-4DCD-9DB9-034DC42ED551.jpeg
0C1205A8-981C-4783-BB40-9E8E4C840273.jpeg

Well after work today I said in again this time to complete the back half and get the seat done.

The seat slider first even though I watched the Videos I still installed it upside down.

After several times of taking it apart and putting it together I finally figured it out. Then I figured it has to be done in a certain order, put the seat brackets on first then the slider onto the frame then the seat onto the bracket.

16AC8492-1679-4F1E-8BB6-5AB75A9E0CCC.jpeg

And now the seatbelts. Initially I just gathered all the ends underneath the seat and zip tied them. After many experiments I ended up with the lap belts tied separately together with a gap because they were too short. Than the crotch and shoulder belts were zip tied together. Got everything to the right length and it’s nice and snug it stays tight even when the seat slides.

I love the belts are way more comfortable than I thought they would be. The black and yellow things on the shoulders are quick release and quick tighten…

CC73C4BF-6286-45CC-8200-CE1C5A3FB9D2.jpeg
7ED468A3-541B-4D2D-8583-68F9410287A5.jpeg

Well I pushed forward with the wheel install. Of course I install the brackets on backwards but it kind a looks like a fanatec tie fighter…

931EC94B-04D7-49DA-893E-42DA9B69CF4D.jpeg

I got it straightened out and installed and mission accomplished there’s no play in the seat or the wheel.

With the seat all the way back the wheel is in the perfect position so I’m not sure the seat slider helps me, or would not be used unless I slide everything forward. Ugh.

My plan for the computer tray isn’t going to work as the wheel is in the way. So I will have to modify that as we go. Going to get some sleep and start on the pedals tomorrow.

Mail Bag

Orz Akdemir – Hey boys. It’s me Orz from Downunder here again ?
Just listening to your latest podcast and I got an idea ?

I think it would be good for you guys to have a Discord for the community where discussions can be had in regards to topics from the podcast.

For example, I am literally frothing at the mouth with the Mercedes W12 news. I have a few immediate questions.
-As you guys discussed, yes the mandatory tyre change of compound during a race should be implemented.

-Also, hopefully we will have the correct DRS zones and detection of being within 1sec of the car in front for DRS to be enabled?

-Also, another key thing with Formula 1 is Safety Cars and Virtual Safety Cars! I’m going that iRacing does this whole Formula 1 thing properly and the best they possibly can and give us these safety cars also?
At least make it an option in Leagues if they think it would just turn into a Safety Car fest in officials. One solution could be for officials to not have the safety car come out within say a minimum of 5laps of the previous SC or something like that ??‍♂️.

I think having a Discord community will also provide discussions topics for upcoming episodes etc directly from your listener base and fans.

Just a few thoughts. Keep up the great work guys. Look forward to the show every week.

My New Cockpit Build Thread – The iRacers Lounge Edition

Mike Ellis Posts: 

I have been around a while and have had the Obutto Revolution cockpit with triple monitor mount, and the MPCC SimPedals inverted, for quite some time now. The triple mount has been bad as the monitors move about if touched. The seat is not quite stable, left side leans back a bit, and the wheel has flex, up and down, not a lot, but I am at the point of I am tired up it, it is time to upgrade.

I thought I would document my journey in this thread, to give people ideas, to see what my thought process is.

As the host of the podcast, iRacers Lounge, we have talked about hardware every week for 6 years, so I feel like I know a lot about what is out there.

First I was seduced by the sleek lines of the iRacing branded Next Level Racing rig. The release of this rig is really what got me going on this project. There was a while, I was dead set on it. But I did my researched, I watched videos, and found the the flex in the wheel area is not much better than what I currently have. I also realized it is overpriced compared to other offerings so I let it go…

Next I looked at Trak Racer 160. Why there, not too sure, teammates have gotten stuff there with success, they are US based, etc… But again, the flex I saw in the wheel on a DD1 mount was more than I want… I was even eyeballing the Advanced Sim Racing rigs with their cool colors, like the royal blue, but same flex as the Trak Racer.s

So, tried and true it is, I have settled on the Sim-Lab’s p1x with integrated quad monitor mount. Advanced Sim Racing computer tray, NRG Blue Alcantara seat, with 6 point red harness. 4th monitor, 27″ flat to match my other 3. Videos I have seen of flex being tested with SimLab’s DD side mount, it is impressive. A significant amount of less flex then the others I have seen… And SimLab’s new magic monitor adjustment thingies, the brand all lines up.

Everything is essentially purchased and en-route and should start arriving this Friday. Still outstanding is how to mount these pedals. My team and I are working a design based on some ideas we got in the forums, basically a rectangle of aluminum extrusion that these cross bars hang off of. I will convert the existing pedal tray into a heal tray basically. There will be a platform above the pedals the computer sits on. Once I figure out the measurements, I have found a local place that can cut and sell me what I need I think to do this part… I understand @Marcus Lindsey has designed this before I have been trying to reach him.

MAIN_PERFORMANCE0487__30291.1415080570.1280.1280-638x425[1].jpg

Going to put the whole thing on large casters, with all wiring self contained where you only run a power cord, and a ethernet cable to it. This makes it easier to keep things in the room and the floor clean and tidy.

The chair, well if I am not getting the SimXperience G-Seat, then I will get the best dang seat I can find. The one that caught my eye, and was a reason I had postponed this project for so long, is the one on Max Papis website saying coming soon… Drives me crazy it has been there forever and they just won’t put it up for sale. I finally sat down and emailed the company and point blank said take my money. They indicated it is not for sale and no ETA…

simlab_seat_concepts-1024x1024[1].jpg

My heart was set on that look, but I have to move on. I did an extensive search but seemed to always end back with NRG seats due to the lower price then other real racing seats. I narrowed it down to two. The white one, is their new ‘SIM’ seat, not sure what makes it sim, but it looks nice. The blue alcantara one, was my gut reaction pick, and I ended up getting the blue alcantara with marbled base chair with a NRG Seat Slider.

nrg_FRP-303BL-ULTRA-1[1].jpg
nrg_FRP-303BL-ULTRA-9[1].jpg

Of course with the color I want red belts to hold me down so I don’t flop around like a fish… Again, tons of research and ended up with some of the most expensive ones they got. I like the yellow loops and black pull down straps…

sbh-hrs6pcrd[1].jpg

And I got a 4th monitor for above the triples, went with same brand and size, flat, as my current monitors…

24-236-821-V50[1].jpg

That’s it for now, everything has been purchased that can be, I still need parts to build a mount for the pedals, but feeling good about the direction of this build as well as the overall look it will have!

I will follow up this post with build pictures as I go through it.

https://forums.iracing.com/discussion/9126/my-new-cockpit-build-thread-the-iracers-lounge-edition/p1?new=1

Today’s update, well I did hear from @Marcus Lindsey about his design to mount the pedals, thank you Marcus! And he did let me know he kept it simple for his build it was just 12 inch 40×40 from McMasterCarr basically.

So ordered 4 12″ aluminum extrusions 40×40.

2 24″ long ones – This is what is different the what Marcus did, these will be the uprights for the brake ‘rectangle’ nearest monitors, and the computer table will afix to it above the brakes.

8 endcaps, 4 Shaft Collars, 4 Bearing Housings, some dropin spring loaded ball nut (m8), and m8 bolts. The corner gussets were like 10 each I am like no freaking way, so I ordered those separately from Amazon. Along with some zip ties, and canned air for the computer.

I do believe this completes the purchasing except for wiring, wiring management type stuff if needed. I thought about getting mounted power strips but I am first going to try to use what I have…

I still will want to get a button box but I am not going to think about that until the build is done, so I can determine where and how big…

As for deliveries I got the 5″ caster wheels today via amazon, first item, starting from the ground up as they say… Has 4 wholes and I ask my bud Tony, how did you mount these? He says just 2 fasteners, but use the diagonal holes right on the very corners of the rig. (2 of the 4)…

71+2APu5QFL._AC_SL1500_[1].jpg

And so it begins stuff it started to arrive I got the McMaster Carr order the parts for the pedal mount. I cheaper out on the corner brackets and got them on Amazon and the little tabs won’t break off like I’ve seen in the videos ugh.

48F86A39-1FB7-4A59-8E6A-28BD47391662.jpeg

Then I got the fourth monitor of the triples.

336B8926-ABAA-4C69-B3FF-730E23CCCB4B.jpeg

I was also surprised to get an email from UPS asking for $54 in import fees. I don’t think I was expecting this I never saw anything on the grid engineering say about it… Surprise!

Results

NASCAR iRacing Series

Fri open: Vegas

  • Ellis –   p10 – Was minorly involved in an early wreck but very little damage – Had another deal where out of 4 i came up into a guy – man i feel bad about that. – then gf stops – caution came 13 later i cycled to lead – couldnt hold it though and fell back, another gf run later made it back to top 10 – i will take it

Hall – P wrecked, a car starts blinking and the turned up and just puts me in the wall.  5 bad NIS outings in a row now

  • Sunday Open
    • Rochette- P8 Back from a nice vacation in the wilderness, ran wrong steering Ratio and absolutely sucked in turning. Also for giggles ran HDR in VR and that sun over the front stretch almost wrecked a couple of times 
    • Hall – p 20  only caution was lap 1,  late in first run I got myself loose and had to go through the grass to prevent a major accident.  That caused me to the loose the draft, and then long run speed just didn’t seem to be there this time.  At least the wrecked out streak is over.
    • Tom D – p6. Still getting into the swing of things.  One caution after green flag stops.  I’ll take a top 10
  • Sunday fixed 
    • Mike -pwrecked out
    • Tyler – P-idoit. Apparently the engine blows up if you go from 3rd to 2nd. DNF as I gernaded myself while getting the wave around under caution. On to DEGA!
  • Wed Open:
    • Hall –p7, recovered after an unlucky restart where another guy that started at the front seemed to want to drop back, caught me out 3 wide and just had to fall to back.  But even with nose damage on the green flag stop, managed to climb back up to 7th with a small pack that worked well together.

Ellis – p1  – We come into this race not really knowing what set we have or don’t have, no practice… Single file goodness the whole way through with literally no racing. The outcome of the race was based on fuel mileage. Tom and I were 1 short going into the final stop, even though Tony had 1 more than us. They blew pit entry so I was great I am on my own. I had a good get away, and got in front of a couple of cars. We pulled out and a pair that pitted prior came blowing by and I slotted into third the rest of the way home. About 4 to go they peeled off, but I was lucky to just catch a lap car and i kept him in front of me so I could continue to save. Still a guy behind me that could make it and he had help from a lapper too, but they never got a good run and the track position paid off, i couldn’t even make the donuts as I ran out on the backstretch. My 77th career win, I win both Tally’s this year, Richmond, and the Southern 500.

  • May be an image of car and road
  • Kyle P – **P1**  Started out 12th and just slowly worked my way through the field. Rand top 10 all night and once we started getting down to the end. I decided to push a little harder. Final restart was with 2 to go and i was sitting 3rd and knew i had to get the jump on 2nd. Did that and just hung on the back bumper of 1st until 1 to go coming out of Turn 2 i backed off a second and caught a big draft and had 3rd on my bumper and got pushed into 3 with the lead and had to defend out of 4 and won the race by .018 of a second. My first ever NIS win. Feels like I wont the real race.

Rochette P14  -I Rochette’d pit road @Tom Dreiling followed me… dont follow me, I wasnt watching my speed entering and braked too late

Official Series

  • A Open
    • Scales – P1 Got a win racing a late night/early morning practice race Sunday night for Mondays race. I was the 3 car in a single split race. Normally there’s a Rachel Hunt or some other alien to ruin my day, but I caught them sleeping and snuck one in.




League / Hosted Races

  • FastTrack Sim Racing League – 
  1.  David – p4  4th place speed
  2. Mike – pwrecked out in first caution
  3. Tony- Pwrecked in the same wreck that Mike and Adam were in 
  4. Stephen –
  5. Scales-P6- Great, clean, race other than an early caution. I tried hard to run down Jeff Marble for a top 5. I ran him down on old tires, but I couldn’t get around him. I was happy just to be able to run him down. He blew my doors off on the second stint. I sucked in the mid area of the race. It was a blast getting to race with my teamates. HUGE thanks to Jeff for letting me drop in on the chase. Also, I didn’t wreck Rochette this time! Win!

Colours Pop!

Staffer Tony Gardner announces that they have adjusted the color tone in the sim and, (maybe?) fixed the yellow color tones many have complained about.

Tony Gardner Posts: 

For a while now we’ve been too a little too warm in tone, and the sun has overpowered the color mix too significantly, while the blueness of the sky was washed out. We fixed this and the fix went out in today’s patch. 

The “yellow” world complaint should be gone or minimized and the colors do definitely pop more now and it looks better.

2022 NIS – All Three Tiers

Nick Neben posted in the forums that he thinks it’s time to expand the NIS series to the Xfinity cars and Gander Trucks

Nick Neben Posts: 

Ok, with the NextGen taking over for NIS in 2022 I know there are going to be some people who miss regular stock car racing. This isn’t a dig at the NextGen car, just the style it provides is not fun to some.

With current member number shooting way up, I think it is time to offer NIS – Cup, NIS – Xfinity, and NIS – Truck

Cup would stay the same and run 50% races with the special 100% races

Xfinity would run 100% races with Xfinity schedule (would usually be the same laps as NIS Cup)

Trucks would run 100% races as well from their schedule offering a shorter race of the three but longer than the regular weekly series.

Running Xfinity and Trucks at 100% would offer something different than the regular open series, and we don’t often get full races with these two series. If you tried to shorten them to 50% it would end up the same as the regular series and not offer anything different. I believe most people run NIS for the longer races.
