Not just the camera, although that does exaggerate it. If you really push everything slides more than it should do.

Been playing GTR2 again recently...and just downloaded over 10 GB of mods for it lol It may not be the most realistic sim-wise, or the best looking, but it's still tons of fun. I've been playing it for years now.

Just don't get frustrated in the Rookie classes, can be annoying...get that license up to C and the trucks are where it starts to get much better (at least for me it was). If you are patient and like that style of sim, it is the best experience available. Glad you liking it so far, the more members the better (more accurate) the split competition gets, racing people around your level all the time is great fun. thumb.gif

Got my SR up to 2.86, then had a bad race, caused a collision when I spun out trying to overtake someone and went back down to 2.62. Pretty much back to square one. Taught me a valuable lesson in patience though. rolleyes.gif

Yeah I wouldn't try to pass anyone in Rookie. Just stay away from the other cars as best you can, finish the race and get out of that series ASAP lol.

One of my friends did a little experiment in which he created a second account and did some Rookie Series races to see how they've changed since we joined in 2009. There's a lot more people playing now, but holy crap there's some talentless hacks who just try to wreck everyone and/or drive into every corner 20 feet over their head. Thankfully the racing gets far, far better even in D Class.

I watched the videos last night regards surviving rookie, this game is fantastic really, the product is good but what stands out is the community, real good people willing to help i have found so far. I am in a league already which will be fun so i just need to build as i go with regards the content, i will be out of rookie on promotion day on road, just concentrating on consistency and clean racing until such time that speed will come naturally. I really enjoyed my first oval last night, a lot of fun and will be doing it again today. Later in the year i am planning to buy or build a cockpit and upgrade my wheel, i only bought a run of the mill until i see if i wanted to continue.

Edit - does ocn not have an official thread or club regards iracing?

I can't say they are the best but I played a bit of flatout 2 and euro truck sim 2 to kill time. It killed time, the same way a couple of hours playing bejeweled twist would.
