Yesterday, 02:17 PM

Posted by GrandPrixYannick in Motorsport Chat
So this evening, news broke out that the abomination that is called the 'halo' will be introduced for next year.

If you'll excuse me, I'm off making jokes about how the view rates will drop next year.

My New Steering Wheel - A Dream Come True!

14 Jul 2017

After so many year with my Logitech Wingman FF, i had the chance to test a friend's Thrustmaster T300RS. It was amazing. One lap in Assetta Corsa in the Lotus49 on the Nordschleife, and i new this is getting expensive. So i've bought a Playseat Evolution, a used T300RS, T3PA-Pro Pedals, TH8A Shifter, new PC, PS4 Pro and set up my "racing room". I can tell you, GPL never was harder to drive. Clutch and H-Shifter adds so much on realism, but i stumbled over my own feets, literally spoken. Laptimes dropped ~ 2 to 4 seconds on average tracks, did'nt finished a complete lap on the ring till now. Feeling a little like 1998...
I've found a wooden Lotus shifter knob on ebay to replace that metal ball of the TH8A shifter, and now i finally got the missing part to make it more realistic than ever.

This is a dream come true. The wheel is made by Jakob Engineering in the UK. They make steering wheels for historic racing and idiots like me. They also made Brabham or Lola wheels or sell parts of cars, just have a look if you are interested.

So, how does ist feel while driving?

UNBELIEVABLE!

Bonnier Crash In Spa 66

15 Jul 2017

Posted by snebka in Off Topic Chat
I just read some race summary from Belgian GP 1966. Crazy first lap. Lot of cars crashed in Burneville anothers slipped in Masta straight. For example i learned today that Bob Bondurant ended upside down with his BRM and then after he climbed up he immediately went to help Stewart. But what interests me is where crashed Bonnier and which house he drived through? I mean it must be really crazy accident because i read that Bonnier broke with his Cooper UPSTAIRS window so he must be catapulted by someone or something :D . And after all he stayed on the edge of track. And what i know he was uninjured after all this!

Does anyone have any other information about this crash?

+some pics from Bonnier crash

Any Ftp Experts Out There?

13 Jul 2017

i was able to connect to the host server last week... now last nite i get an error message saying 'cannot connect, server refuses connection'
i talked with the server admin and i was told the problem is not on his end.

my provider is comcast - but i can't see how anything (changes) they might make, would affect an FTP connection, especially when everything else is working.
win10 did have a recent update (creator?)  but i also have a pc with winXP and when i tried to connect from it, i got the same error.

is there something else i could try? or check?
does anyone have a server i could 'test' connecting to via FTP?

i'm lost and approaching desperate ~
thanks!
