If we end up racing the Supercars, do you want to run Australian circuits even if they might be a bit old and crappy? Or would you rather prefer to use better quality tracks?

If there is going to be another fun run before the next season, i'll just throw this out there for your consideration.It's something to consider. Do you remember what cars/mods they were? I keep mixing up the style of cars. You can see the past seasons at the bottom of the first post here. We're currently due for something a bit more grunty
Sorry for the delay in replying, from memory they were BMW M3 E30 Step 1, Mercedes EVO II and Audi Quattro. But any tail-happy car will do the trick there. More grunt equals more thrills and spills me thinks.

My first race on SRS was using a selection of 80's (I think) touring cars at Riverside. I had ever raced there prior and I was smiling like the Joker almost the entire race. The cars available weren't ones that I would normally choose to race in but I had the time of my life sliding around the long sweeping corners. Long straights to draft behind. Close racing guaranteed !

Thank you all for your input..
I have looked at changing the POT's , Jaycar have a great number of them of varying values 1K, 5K, 10K etc which has stopped me from changing them as I cant find anywhere the value of the stock ones.
I found a set of T500 pedals on eBay which I was going to get until I surfed by the Fanatec website and checked out their collection. The CSL Elites (with the clutch and loadcell) made me think twice about the 2nds T500.
So it comes down to as it always does, how much $$ I can stop the missus from spending so I can spoil myself. When you see me real big in the rear view mirror, you'll know I've got me new ones
See you on the track
I've only recently found this website/forum and have been blown away by the content and the people on here. So, in my moment of need I turn to those who take their racing as seriously as I would like to.
I'm currently having some growing problems with my good ol Logitech G920 pedals. They have, since moving from driving solely on XBOX to now only on PC, been ripped from their original housing, inverted on my DIY wooden POS cockpit, uninverted on my better POS PVC cockpit to now currently residing on my Next Level Racing F1/GT setup. The springs have all been changed from the stock to a firmer spring of my personal preference (Thank you Bunnings). They have seen a great deal of work (including a full length Bathurst 1000 done in my sweltering garage in January - 47 degrees C the missus tells me the clock said) and have performed all the tasks that I asked of them.
Now, for whatever reason the Sim Gods have chosen, they are showing their age and starting to be problematic. Latest issue, brake pedal at 50% constantly. I can dial that out by playing around with the calibration in-game but the "feel" of the pedal whilst racing is absolutely horrendous so I have come to the conclusion its time for an upgrade.
Can I get your thoughts on which/whos/what you would get if you were in my shoes without having to get a second mortgage. If it matters I'm steering with a Thrustmaster T300.

Hello to all
Scott is the name that my parents gave me, although Mum changed it to dickhead when i was 14.
Before i dislocated my shoulder at work i was a forkie/warehouse guru in Sydney. Currently I'm a DIYer fixing up the house bit by bit with any spare change i can find in the couch.
I found AC while watching the YouTube(er) AMSTUDIO about doing a DIY handbrake (for Dirt Rally on Xbox). Now I'm doing laps with a Thrustmaster T300 (F1 wheel add-on), with my customised G920 pedals (firmer springs in all pedals) G920 shifter running through an Arduino board attached to my F1/GT Next Level Racing cockpit infront of my 55" screen or the Oculus Rift for supported games.
I somehow stumbled onto this site yesterday and I'm soooooo very glad that I did.
Lookly forward to come hard competetive fair racing ........
