re: iRacing
Might have to give it a shot then. Though the setups from setups4iracing have been pretty good for me so far.

I don't use the setups that often but I hear they are ok

re: iRacing
I've gotten to where I don't like fixed series racing. I tried one from some guy's site in the UK this morning and didn't care for it. Craigs setups. Went back to the setups4iracing and it drove like a dream. It was my 1st race ever at Chicago and I was running down 1st place until I made a mistake and lost it. Managed to come back from 16th and a lap down to finish 8th. Had a green white checkers and blew about 4 or 5 of them out of the water.

re: iRacing
It just depends. I’m sometimes in top split in fixed so it makes it tough but open is a different animal. At least in fixed, it takes skill to be up front because no one has a set up advantage. I’m not good at setting up the car so open scares me. Lol

re: iRacing
The fixed cars are just too stiff and tight to me. I don't know how the setups I'm using will translate to cup and Xfinity but they seem to hold their own in trucks at least. Plus the races are double length, which I like. More SR and time to recover from a mistake.

re: iRacing
Hey guys I’m back checking in, sounds like you two have been having fun racing. I just got out of the hospital, my hand ended up getting infected and the infection spread in to my bone so they split me wide open. I spent 5 fricking days in the hospital while they grew samples of bacteria from my bone, sounds like a bad movie? Now that I’m home I still have to have this special antibiotics and it has to be administered by IV, so 4 times a day I have to hook up to an IV bag and mix my medicine in it. They put a temporary pick line in, so it’s not hard just pain in the ass. My left hand has about 10 to 15 stitches but I can still drive. Haha.
Hope to practice some Chicagoland in Xfinity and do some C trucks if possible. When I came out of surgery my entire hand was wrapped up with just my thumb sticking out, the nurse said in recovery I asked the surgeon what the hell was I supposed to do with this while holding my hand up, told him how in the hell did he expect me to drive my race car? He thought I was talking about a real one. Oh well. Good luck in your races guys.

Thanks man, just my way of getting through life, you know you see the fork in the road and one sign says easy fast path, paved for your convenience. The other says enter at your own risk, uneven road with hazards. I somehow always end up on the hardest road but I get to where I’m going just a little beat up but stronger.
It’s something that my friends and I just laugh at anymore, nothing is unusual.

Ditto that.

On the truck Chicago front, the setup I'm using just turns into a plow after 20 laps. The crazy thing is the tires still show a decent amount left. I can't figure it out.

re: iRacing
So pocono is brutal. I've run into the problem that now I'm racing in trucks and Xfinity cars that are above my abilities. Not good. I'll just keep plugging along and hopefully get more comfortable as time goes on. Kind of would like to go ahead and clear A class for the sake of it, but I know how bad I'll in those cars.

And as a result my IR is down to 978. Pitiful. At least my SR is still B3.50.

I have taken a beating at Pocono in both Xfinity and Trucks. I haven’t had a problem qualifying or running up front, but with all the cautions and restarts bad things happen and it only takes a couple bad races.
I think my IR is back up around where you are now, my SR is down to 2.6 or so. Like I said I have taken a beating.

re: iRacing
Learned to love pocono the past day or so. Just posted my first truck series win ever there. This next track looks awful though. Ran a few practice laps there and it's rough.

re: iRacing
I haven't ran any C trucks in two weeks. I'm not buying anymore content for a while. It got crazy there for a while.

It sucks that this season is one that I don't own many of the tracks.

re: iRacing
Well I own every cup track now, so I'm pretty well set. It was expensive as shite though.
