Yeah, I thought for sure you were out breaking yourself there. It caught me off guard.

I was really surprised the next lap to get inside of you there in turn one the next lap as well. Thanks for the room!

Too bad I tangled with you later, that would have been an epic battle! I was just way too close to you there when you went off

Thanks! My dad is a cool d00d, and likes stuff like this and me doing things well. If you were a member of the suncoast region, you would have heard my life story, 6 times...guys on rennlist have that experience. I have baseball caps and sweatshirts with my class ranking on them (obviously don't wear them), for example.

I started recording the videos because when my parents visited in july, my dad mentioned how our friend joe would love the videos, so I bought the software and started recording. I actually regret not recording and racing more, as Joe passed about 2 weeks ago.

I learned from good people. There is a funny story about the FBI showing up at my dad's dental office when he tried to send salt from the bonneville salt flats to joe.

for those of you who are iracers, or on the fence, join in on the Fchat league and/or the RL league when it resumes this fall. good times. no, it's not the "real thing", but it's close, and you can get your jollies mid-week during the winter and not just summer weekends
The really funny part about it is how I go off throttle, and line up with you first to "be safe", only to decide "lolercopter they are braking too early" ---> dive bomb.

Agree on all points. I was way too cautious right before I went wide in T3 (I think) which is why we ended up in our little mix up. I should have moved over and closed that door.

Should be in So. Cal. soon. Will definitely try to make time for a pit stop.

Sweet! We should do a local LAN race on the motion sims all together It's always more fun when you competitor is within yelling distance.

Right on! I know I need to be in Irvine at least once, and I am thinking to make a pit stop there before heading to Japan for a week. Biggest question, will the wine helmet make it through TSA?

I was a Masshole for four years in college; would you like me to insult your mother and give you the finger?

as long as it's not full when you go through security, I think you'll be okay

Well, technically club racing is a game too, just a live game while iRacing is a simulation.

The tooting horn just gets bigger/louder when real body parts are at a stake. I have no problem with someone bragging about a simulator performance. It's "real" in its own context. Just don't compare it to real "real."

You just have to find the right kind of game.
