Do you really really need it?

Do you really really need it?

Sim racing can be expensive, especially when you end up buying things or services that you don’t need. It’s called buyers remorse and i get hit by it some times, but not quite as much as it used to! We are all into motorsports, and ride the same wave of trying to shave off lap times, by improving not only our driving, but also the equipment. Even the smallest of improvements to our hardware can mean a lot of time on the digital track. At least this is what we are lead to believe and sometim

Best Voice Commands for Crew Chief

Best Voice Commands for Crew Chief

Earlier I shared a post on how to speak to Crew Chief. You can do this in several ways but my favorite right now is to have a button that you need to hold, while speaking. It seems to be the most stable method. This is all great, but what really matters, is what you can say to Crew Chief. Since i started researching into this, I have used Crew Chief more and more. I have found out that it can do a whole lot more than i expected it could, and it has actually even replaced my need of a few ex

Talk & Crew Chief

Talk & Crew Chief

I have grown really fond of Crew Chief mainly because it can do so much more than you’d expect of it! I initially bought the app for my android phone and used it back in the days when i was racing on X-box. Now on PC i have downloaded the program, that is even better than the app i paid for! Crew Chief is a program that will keep you well informed during a race. It will tell you about your lap times, motivate you, scorn you if you don’t perform, and generally give you information about your

F1 2019 preorders open

F1 2019 preorders open

The F1 series was what got me started racing, after i felt that i needed to upgrade from Burnout. It was the game that opened my eyes virtual racing, and that the racing and not the crashing on car-games actually was very exciting! Although the series was a bit stuck on the same reskinned game in the early 2010s the latest series have gained a lot of momentum and are really impressive! Also, in my opinion, they are the best racing games for consoles, if you can live without a big range of cars.

Find Five Challenge

Find Five Challenge

Here is a Find Five challenge, made with a picture of a Ferrari 512 BB/LM N.A.R.T #72 from Forza 6.

Have a close look at the picture, and see if you can find them all.   If you have looked closely, and still can't find all of the differences, you can find the solutions here.

Top iRacing Addons

Top iRacing Addons

iRacing is an exceptionally good sim racer, and is almost a complete racing solution for dedicated and passionate racers. That said, there are a few external addons that make it even better.

iRacing Bars

iRacing Bars

One thing that I have really had trouble understanding properly, are the iRacing performance bars. So i had a closer look at them, and the information available, to try and sort them out. Although I will try to explain what these bars show, based off what i could gather from the internet, I sadly can’t get into exactly why they show what they do. This seems to be more complicated, than even iRacing support can figure out some times. Non the less, it is a good and detailed explanation of all the

Shifting Gears in the Skip Barber

Shifting Gears in the Skip Barber

About a month ago, I decided to only stick to one series, and get better at that instead of joining any one of the car/track combinations that I had bought the content for. At the point I was not sure if one series was enough, and I was afraid that i might get bored with racing just one car on one track for a whole week. It has turned out to be more than enough, and I even some times wish that the series would stay at a track for longer than just one week. I even get nervous and anxious every Tu
