Morning thoughts (off the wheel)

    MORNING/EVENING (doesn't really matter)
    This sim gets into my head, I was commuting this morning and I realized that I was doing trailbreaking and holding the steering as I do in ACC (not the relaxing commuting position, if you know what I mean).
    My wife couldn't stop laughing. I keep saying that 'racing properly' in a simulator is very macho, not nerdy; and that is a simulator, not a game; and that is training, not playing (but the brainwash doesn't work).

    Terminology used in my family has always been "I'm going for a ride in the racecar."

    And BTW, I'm rev-matching my car on downshifts...that's from AC :p When it's safe to take a turn a little faster, I use a proper racing line, as well.
    BTW 2: A Renault Grand Scénic III has a surprisingly good F/R weight distribution :-D

    I knew I wasn't alone. C'mon guys, is time to come out of the closet :p. Come out and say it: I'm a racerboy.

    I'll go again.
    I once hold back a Huracan with a Saab diesel.
    There are many rich chaps in London with a Lamborghini. Sometimes I cross with them in the same direction crossing Blackwall Tunnel, and you know... they like reving the engine. And tbh I like the sound, but some of them don't know how to do it. They try to rev a 500hp monster in 3rd gear (foot down in a tunnel), which basically launches the car forward like a missile, instead of just downshifting.

    One of these geniuses got on my nerves onceo_O, and I drove defensively, covering both lanes and blocking him at 30 mph for the whole tunnel. He was very angry, flashing lights, screaming w***nker, etc, but he couldn't pass. Even if I knew it was stupid and it was wrong... it felt a bit right (please don't judge me:rolleyes:).

    Yeah, guilty as well. We have a roundabout near work with a paved section inside the road. I took the ideal line for accelerating out of it this morning and was wondering if I actually had 2 wheels inside the white lines or if I was risking a cutting penalty ;)

    Also I once had the situation of loosing my rear on the motorway at 130 km/h because I wanted to "educate" some middle lane drivers. Sim experience was part of me being able to get it back under control quickly, I guess.

    It really helps, IMO. It helps you to react appropriately and also to not get scared. Someone pulling on your lane in an unexpected way or hugging your rear bumper with the high beams flashing can cause nervous breakdown for some people. Not for me. Being in such situations in the virtual domain is very good for practicing appropriate behaviour. It's impressive, really.

    Exactly, I totally agree with you. London driving in the morning is basically Mad Max: Fury Road. Thanks to sim racing we can overcome real life obstacles. So... A+B+C= racing online is macho not nerdy. :D

    Brilliant. I sat my wife at the wheel of a Range Rover at Nordschlife. She did it in under 12 minutes, first time driving (anything) in her life. She still calls it a game, though. A bit stubborn.

    Agree on the traffic circle fun.

    And being relaxed under pressure, coming back from Mosport through Toronto in the left most lane of 4, moving with traffic ahead of me, and this idiot comes up behind me, on my bumper, expecting me to move over.
    So I come up to a transport truck to my right, slow down and box him in, so he has no were to go, he and his wife are going nuts, I'm smiling.

    Any of the above, smart, no, fun. hell yes.

    That happened to me with AC. I now rev match everything I drive, even a luton body Mercedes sprinter.

    I don't see many super cars around these parts, were I live is all narrow, windy, hills, bumps, having a low car isn't really doing you any favours. I drive a plain old Citroen C4 1.6hdi van. I drive the living bejesus out of it and somehow it's still alive and I've grown to absolutely love the no frills, don't give a **** nature of driving that car.. One day I was coming from the next town over, there's a long straight leaving the town which leads into a section of roller coaster road and I come up being a Nissan GTR at the start of the straight. When I come up behind the GTR it takes off down the straight. I know the section of roller coaster road extremely well, the GTR had English plates. The roller coaster road starts with a 90 degree left hand bend but there's a little hill right in the middle so you can't go too fast or the car jumps across the road into the oncoming traffic. He braked so early for that corner that I caught him before he turned in. Then he had to sit through the embarrassment of holding up a 1.6 litre diesel van until he got to the next straight bit of road where he took off again. He had the fastest car but the smallest cojones.

    I don't really do braking the speed limit,but I don't slow down for corners like normal people and Ireland is mostly corners.
