I'll miss Bruce a lot. He was one of the core group of XGNers who made me feel welcome and comfortable joining in the XGN online racing community. He had the uncanny knack of remembering everyone's name - not just their racing nicknames but also their real names. It seemed to come naturally to him. He was the creator of XGN Thursday night racing and introduced, or should I say imposed, the Cobra on us thereby setting up the lasting legacy of Thursday night "historic" racing. I worked with him on some of the early seasons of Thursday night racing and he was extremely easy and enjoyable to collaborate with. He had the knack for creating car/track season combinations.

I would love to have a Cobra Cup for next season to remember Bruce's contribution.

I am in, of course!

Perhaps slightly less enthusiastically than Phil is, but I am curious about Road Atlanta ;)
Road Atlanta is great. Some of us may remember racing there in rFactor.
Just gave it a quick drive. Fantastic track. View of elevation changes are most realist I've seen.

Assetto Corsa Bonus Pack 3 DLC Coming December 20


I think it is sort of cockney slang - Australianised.

Hardware & Reviews / Spare Fanatec CSL Elite Pedals available

I've got CSL Elite pedals to offload - brand new, box not opened. They are the basic 2 pedal set. Might be of interest to someone looking to get the load cell pedal. I think half price might be reasonable.


Send me a PM if interested.

Firmware update fixed the problem. I got onto Fanatec support via their online chat last night and after an hour or so online the support guy gave me a link to a new firmware version that was being used for the CSL Elite PS4 (driver 293; firmware 336). That fixed the problem. Turns out quite a few people had the same problem. If only Fanatec has posted that they were working on a fix!!

Anyway, it is worth noting that the online chat session worked much better than email because it is more interactive. The support guys was very good and thorough. The option doesn't seem to be available on their website all the time. Only during certain working hours (German time).

I'm loving the new wheel even with the additional, unsolicited gear changes. But you can't use it in a race so I'm going to send it back if possible.

Thanks guys. Makes me feel better. I suppose I was just used to being able to make a phone call.

Has anyone else ever raised a support call to Fanatec here in Australia?

I cannot find a local phone number for them. I have found their address in Victoria but no phone details.

I am not happy being at the mercy of an email system run from Europe.

Sounds odd. I've had the same base for nearly 12 months and never had anything like that.
Yeah. I think it must be a hardware fault since I haven't found any one else with the same problem.

The wheel has arrived. VERY quick delivery. All installed and working for the most part. However, there is one problem. The wheel randomly changes gears all by itself - both upshifts and downshifts. Seems to be after the wheel base heats up. It only happens occasionally but if it is a sudden downshift then the result can be catastrophic. I've raised a ticket with Fanatec but I was wondering if anyone else her has experienced similar problems. I've tested with other sims and it is only happening with Assetto Corsa.
