Round 7 race 1 of the Xfactor Racing GT3s at Barber MSP.
So I finally got round to giving the Stockcar 2018 a proper go at some ovals!
I tried it out at NOLA and some road course's when it first came out and I've gotta say it feels great! Like you might expect a 750hp heavy stockcar to feel (not that I've driven one IRL which is why I say imagine)
The weight transfer, general feeling of the tires, the feeling of driving it on the edge, the way it communicates under and over steer, how you have to look after the engine and of course... The POWER!
It's a monster of a challenge!
Then I tried to go proper NASCAR and take it oval racing. Of course the first place I thought of had to be Indianapolis! The Brickyard, Gasoline Alley, The Spectacle! I don't know much about NASCAR and have not tried it much since NR2003 but that's gotta be the place right?
Oh dear, did not know what I was letting myself in for!
Hello friends! This video cost me a lot of training hours .. . I hope you like the sound effects. I would be very happy to receive your feedback
Oh ive been having such a good time with this track, gunna try it with the F-Vee's and maybe the skippys, Palatov is a great idea, look forward to watching this, will leave a comment on the YT vid mate!
P.S. Just fired up RF2 for some Nascar action and its litterally just now updated Berlin! What a coincidence! Hav'nt seen any posts about a new update, wonder whats been done?
Via Discord its a Safetycar fix.
The Palatov fits perfect to the E Prix tracks!
So I went back to Brookdale Speedway (Which I've since found out is based on Darlington Speedway in South Carolina) to try and complete a full race and feck me! Now I'm fully hooked!
I am getting a massive high out of oval racing now!
This is what stockcar racing at Darlington did to me...
Finally got a chance to watch it, it's a properly good match! With that wheelbase those cars are perfect for the tight corners, look much faster through them than the formula E, and nice driving, you come out of turns so close to the wall! What is that music at the start? Acceleration of these things is just unreal, such high reves! Gunna have to go try this! So glad I bought into the E tracks pack, I love this track! Nice wheel setup by the way, that must be awesome to drive on!

Round 8 race 1 with Xfactor Racing from Imola 94, I was determined to try and get to 10th from the back of the grid, unfortunately I kind of stuffed myself from the start.
2 lap race of the Nurburgring, in the Senna GTR.
My first race in it and there's some pretty obvious room for improvement, but 5th place against AI on 95% is good enough for me in my first proper drive of this car. I think it was a 7:34 lap from a standing start on the first lap and a second slower on lap 2, due to my two crashes.
Next time I drive it, I'll try out a couple of things to improve the handling and see if I can pull a bit more too speed out of it too. I really enjoy the swearing from Crew Chief too - that adds to the immersion
Yep was my bad bud.
Cool video - I hadn't seen that track before - nicely done.
The squealing from that car under brakes is pretty nuts. I'd be asking my mechanic to look at that thing
I never thought I'd say that, but: This car compared to the Cup Porsche, I tell you the Cup Porsche is a lamb
