I didn't show on Seanus' helicorsa for some reason so he probably didn't know I was there.
Im not sure what you mean i was driving in a straight line and you veered left into me twice the second time pushing me off. Hadnt even got to the turn in point.

Congrats Wally and thanks Phil and Bruce. Felt quite emotional driving tonight knowing Bruce had put this all together.
Almost didn't make it; thanks for the restart. Race 1 ended up being my practice and I didn't have enough fuel. Race 2 had a missed gear give up two places early on then a great race with Rob close on my tail. Got pushed off the track on the last lap, but looking at the replay I didn't show on Seanus' helicorsa for some reason so he probably didn't know I was there.

Frustrating night for me, glad it was only a fun run. Porsche race I had some frame stutters causing me to go off track on two corners both getting cut warnings and letting two people by (I did end of with 5 cuts though so would have had a penalty regardless haha). Lotus race had a good start with Shayne and was on him but starting loosing him then suddenly Wally came up beside me out of nowhere. Looked at pedal app and was only hitting 90% throttle. More cars passed me and was then only hitting 80%. Very annoying, may need to clean the sensors. Replugging the pedals usually fixes the issue and this can be done in game but kind of hard to do when racing. I do have a USB cable here with a switch on it so may put that on the pedals and have it reachable on the rig. That way if it happens in race I can just coast and flip it off and on.
RIP Bruce. Has brought tears to my eyes reading this. I'd been thinking how he'd been doing the last week or so being off the forum. He'd always been such a big part of XGN since I joined and will miss hearing his voice on TS

lol Well I've learned something today, never seen the word used in that context before. Now to go and try it out on my work colleagues
Yeah sometimes sayings make no sense literally. Things like 'Mael didn't crash' or 'Mael overtook me'...
Now you just need to buy some rgb strips, and keep going with the xmas spirit!
Hah I did think about the strips but not right now. The case has tinted tempered glass sides so the lighting isn't too in your face.
Yeah it ran nice and cool last night even with the fans set to 'silent' mode. Only thing is the RGB fans are airflow fans so I have them on the radiator. It came with two static pressure fans I was going to use for push/pull but there was no room in the top of the case for that. Was only today I thought I should have put the radiator on the front as there is room for push/pull there. I'm not overclocked so no rush to change it but may do at some stage.
I built my PC on a budget with a mini tower and in the summer months it does get pretty toasty when gaming. Decided to get a bigger case with better airflow as an xmas present to myself, but unfortunately I'm a sucker for gimmicks and the more I looked into it the more dollars I spent haha.
This is my old case as I started pulling its guts out:
Ended up buying all this. Oops...
And some pictures of it all together:
Totally unnecessary but awesome. You can change all the colours and effects on the lighting. This video is 'Spectrum Wave' which looks pretty cool. The photos/video don't do the colours justice though.

KTM if I had to pick, but didn't really enjoy either much
You're just saying that because you know the Lotus is coming!! You were the only person driving that KTM in my very first season at XGN.

Haha sounds right. All of these were with the environment I believe My pedals wern't hitting 100% so I had to replug and restart AC etc so didn't get any practice time in at qually.
BMW definitely produced close racing but it was a little easy/boring to drive. Even though I spun off a lot on the KTM I preferred it over the two. Nice to drive a car with the h-shifter for a Tuesday season too.
