Where is Marty these days?  I miss his musk.

I think I speak for everyone when I say that we all want to race the Reliant Robin in the next season.  So let's do it!

Bah, wish I had my rig for this.  Love the Exos.

Bummer are you away from home or did you get rid of your setup? Is it still the pedals issue maybe.

Pedals.  Plus life and stuff.  I'll be back one day, but at the moment new house furniture and other living expenses are taking a priority. :)

What's the new "wind" feature like?

Not that I need any more.

There hasn't been much news on AC for a while.  Have they said much other than a console update?

I saw this as well.  A good concept. It goes to show that gaming and sim racing, esports, etc. Are being taken more seriously these days by the wider public and obviously becoming more popular.  It's obviously just a marketing ploy, but if a team as big as Mclaren are actively trying to engage the sim racing community it goes to show how big sim racing has become.

I'd love to take part but I don't think I have the hardware, or more importantly the time (not to mention the skill!) .  The greater the competition the more time you have to put into perfecting a setup which takes a lo5 longer than perfecting a track IMO.

You guys should have a shot though - it would be good to see a few xgn'ers throwing their hat in the ring. :)

I don't know why they don't have a fire truck with the jaws of life and other vehicle extraction tools at these types of events.

Poor fella.  Did they say why the car he ran into was almost parked on the track?

I subscribed to Getflix for a month, paid for it and never used it.  But it was a good month.  Does that help?

What about a 2.5 hour race around Magione?  Robins???

RBR lost any hope of challenging for the championship when the FIA told them to remove their fancy suspension system.

On the way to the track on Sunday I said to my brother that I'd take Ricciardo not even making it to the grid if it meant Vettel beat Hamilton.  Well, I guess I have to be happy then!

Ferrari clearly had the race pace on Mercedes.  They have made a great car, although I think they need to have a good look at Kimi.  I think someone like Sainz might be Ferrari bound next year.

The suspension ruling has killed RBR.  Hope they find a way around it.

How did you end up Phil?  At least the weather was brilliant for all 4 days.

Yeah, guys like yourself Joe, Phil, Grat have got faster and faster to be right up at the pointy end of the field.


The first XGN AC race was nearly three years ago now, in May 2014:

Heck, time flies.  Was that the Ferrari and McLaren at Silverstone?  Actually I think that was the first fun run.  I think the first series were the BMW E30s?

ok let me kick some xgn ARSES

I bet that's not all you want to do with them!

General Discussion / Re: Foxtel play
« on: March 01, 2017, 08:12:40 PM »
I'm signed up to Foxtel and use Foxtel Go when I'm away from home to watch stuff. Foxtel Play is the on demand service of shows that have already run (I think).

It works fine although video quality will be an issue if you intend to mirror it to a large TV. Pretty sure it went as high as 720p though...

And yes, the Foxtel IQ3 box is crap compared to Sky box, but that's basically a result of a huge user base vs a small one - plus trying to rush the IQ3 out to combat Netflix.

I find Foxtel very good for motorsport. It's got quite a lot.

The real issue is: are you going to sign up for season 16?

I appreciate the gentle nudge, but unfortunately I don't think it's likely.  Looking at moving to a new house in a few months which I think I'll use as an excuse to get a new set of pedals and wheel and maybe triples... then hopefully I'll have given it enough of a rest for the cheese and kisses to let me have some "alone time" and jump back in :)
