I keep putting it off because I'm waiting to get the transducers mounted but that project keeps getting pushed back. It was time to just break it out and have some fun! This was my first time playing iRacing in several months (I can't even remember the last race I did) and it shows in my driving. I have a wreck very early in the race and it messes with my nerves for the rest of the race. But I'm still happy to be back in the drivers seat and I will be doing some more practice before my next race. I lost a few points off my license and my iRating but to be honest my iRating was already in the trash from not playing for so long. The top screen displaying the real time data is called iRDDU and is a fantastic program. I highly recommend it if you have a setup similar to mine. I also cranked up the system and graphics memory settings in iRacing and enable extra detail textures which make the in-game graphics look so much better.

Best iRacing Setup Rookie Street Stock @ Charlotte Motor Speedway - Only Wrecked Once!
Please Like, Favorite and Subscribe! - It's been a few months since I've played iRacing and a lot of you have been requesting that I get back on the sim so tonight I did just that. I jumped on the Obutto R3volution with T500RS and Sparco Mod with my Fanatec Clubsport V2 pedals and TH8 Thrustmaster shifter and got business done. I do a POV view with the camera right behind my head so you can see what I see and also have a webcam pointed at my face so you can see my reactions. I did pretty good in practice but I had one pretty epic wreck on lap 14 of the race but still managed to pit my car even though it was in the craziest shape ever! This race took place at 9:00pm @ Charlotte Motor Speedway in the Street Stock Series. I have not put a custom skin on my car yet but I will do that before the next race but I was happy to report I didn't wreck anyone or get anyone calling me explitives during the race and I count that as a victory. I come in 11th place and get a few points for my license which is fantastic despite the huge indecent! I love my racing simulator and consider it to be one of the best ones I've ever used short of a $20+ k motion platform based simulator. It also is very easy to convert back into a regular work area so I don't have to have room for a dedicated simulator and work/game station.

Playing iRacing on a very realistic VirtualGT Racing Simulator w/ Ian Alexander & Friends
Please Like, Favorite & Subscribe if you enjoy this video! Come talk to me (do it...) http://facebook.barnnerd.com http://twitter.barnnerd.com Come laugh at me (do it...) http://instagram.com/barnacules (new Instagrams daily!) Want a T-Shirt or Coffee cup? http://swag.barnnerd.com My good friend and past DirtFish Rally School instructor Ian Alexander is now working for an amazing company that builds really high end racing simulators for both actual race car drivers that need to practice and sim racing enthusiasts. These simulators start at about $12k and go all the way up to $80+k USD and the primary focus of these simulators is to get as close to reality as possible with the available power coming out of your wall. The simulator that I'm reviewing in this video is one of there older models and sits at about $40k as equipped if you wanted to buy one. It's a full motion system based on D-BOX technology and the simulator houses a 9 speaker sound system including tune subwoofer under the seat and multiple very large transducers throughout the rig that make my buttkicker look like a party favor. The sound system is beyond amazing, the majority of the simulator is built from wood so that that the motion transfer and sound resonate perfectly to give you the feeling that you're actually sitting in a car and it does a damn fine job of doing it. Also the motion is so perfectly smooth and coordinated with the video on the screens and the controls that your brain can actually use the input constructively and it's not just a passive effect to make thing more interesting. The screens on this thing are amazing, they are so much brighter then my 46" screens I have at home and they are commercial panels (not just HDTV's) and are designed to work well in very bright lighting and out doors which is freaking amazing. I can't translate in this video just how smooth the motion is on this machine and just how aggressive it can become based on the amount of input it receives from the game. The 500 watt sound system built into this thing is amazingly loud and clear, not only that but it's custom and isn't Dolby or DTS they re-mix the audio coming into the simulator and give you full control over how you want to feel that sound in each range. And you can even setup different audio settings for each car and track you have and they are quickly accessible by buttons on the dashboard. And last but not least I was wondering if this would be to loud to have upstairs in the Man Cave so we turned down all the auidio and bass on the unit and just left the motion enabled the machine is whisper quiet! Even when it's lifting the whole sim up or slamming it forward under heavy braking it's absolutely quiet and silent, I have no idea how this is even possible. But you can bet your ass I'm going to try and save up and get one of these at some point in my life :P Virtual GT: http://virtual-gt.com Phone #: 888-366-9205 Make sure you tell them that Ian Alexanders friend Jerry Berg sent you if you want to call and do a test drive or get a quote, who knows he might even cut you a little deal :P This show is an independent production of Jerry Berg (aka Barnacules).

Let's play iRacing - 20 laps at Lime Rock in my Mazda MX-5 w/ commentary
I decided to drive a real race on iRacing now that I've made a ton of modifications to my simulator and give commentary through it. Let me know if you guys enjoy the video and I will post more when I do real races online. I am working on getting a web cam synchronized with the game play but having some slight issues, once that is done you will be able to see me and the 3 screens while I play. I decided to just chat about racing and some other random topics during the race so hopefully this adds a little diversity to the video. In addition to the official racing series offered on iRacing.com, you can also join or start your own league. What's a league? Simple, it is racing or a racing series that is run by a member, not by iRacing. Here is what makes it different: Race against who you want -- password protected sessions allow you to control who can access your race Race when you want -- tracks are open 24/7 and you set the schedule Race where you want -- choose any car and track combination you like Score your way -- you create the scoring system for your league or use one of our automated scoring systems Create your league and your custom league page, organize, set schedules, set seasons, communicate privately with league members, and create league wall & message board all on iRacing. No need to waste time and money with outside website and databases. Or simply find a league, over 400 leagues to choose from all listed on our league page with a powerful search tool This show is an independent production of Jerry Berg (aka Barnacules).
