Just wanna say thanks to Coby for putting Ironman back together. I had pretty much quit all this stuff after James passed. Just lost all interest in it. I think what I have seen so far, is that Assetto Corsa is far superior to what rFactor ever thought of being. Of course I haven't played rFactor in over 5 years, so I am sure it is probably better now. Wish more of the old crew could or would come back! But it is what it is an I am happy to be back involved. I'll do my best to keep us in our favorite car liveries as long as I can, as summer means a lot more hours on the road. And I have a camper also that we try and take out once a month too. Thanks guys! Your the best!

Awesome Den! I want so second this. Thanks so much for getting stuff set up, and for getting folks back together for some racing and BSing! I have missed being a part of it for such a long time.
Den, I appreciate the paint jobs so much. They really make it feel like what we always had. If you are willing, I always love anything you can come up for the best looking car on track! Thank you so much.
sat night was a blast!!! and a workout to put it mildly... this season so far has turned out to be a winner (thanks to you guys) next week is MILLS SHORT... this race is going to be downright the craziest race ever!!! 30 laps with low "50" second lap times and nowhere to pass lol... i love it

After everyone took each other out in the first couple of corners, I thought I was in for it! But I did not have the consistent pace to hold any lead. Den got by my almost right away, then Stash and Jose eventually recovered and ripped by. CraigT was the last one I had to hold off with the laps counting down less than every minute. I noticed Jose leaving the pits and thought that was odd, by the time I was done thinking, Jose was spinning across the track in front of me. Super bad reaction time and I creamed him like a Twinkie. Last place again, but it was a battle getting there.
Paperclipring next. Concrete and hairpin corners, sounds like a fun time to me!

Norisring.... all i can say is i tried my hardest but could not keep pace with Exer...
Happy to see some NEW and OLD Drivers joining us, we are 9 members strong and growing... be sure and get the people we talked about a little nudge to come race... Eric Rymer Scott Bennet Bill Stephens ARE Flynn Nordberg RaceBandit
Im still workin on getting G Rock and Degadraft in here (Dega CONFIRMED for week#5 Barbagallo) & G Rock is waiting on another replacement wheel, so hopefully week#6...
if you are friends with any of the drivers from the oldschool teams we used to run with: Team Tundra...ASWRC...WGTL...SpeedRacin or anyone else from previous leagues you use to run in...
LETS TRY TO GET THIS 16 SLOT SERVER FILLED EVERY WEEK...
Yes, i won only because i was practicing this track alot for that last 2 days until i got best time... It takes alot of time for me (new to simracing, 3 weeks ago i got my first wheel and AC), so lets say im not that good as you that make good laptime first time i drive track..I need much more time for new tracks, hard learner... , pretty noob, so i got this only by practicing alot... Im sure alot of you would have better time than me if you take 100+ laps before..
This track was easy to stay first once when i got first in qualy, its hard to do overtakes because if you make mistake you get in wall, so its more risky.
but if it was more laps i would probably do much more mistakes, i did one in the middle of the race, and almost lose my first place.. my tyres was all race cold (dont know why) and then i lose grip..
next track will be harder for sure, it had much more sliding so automaticly much more chances for mistakes, and for now many of us are in 1 second of time
but yes, its fun, only thing i would like is to get longer races (you automaticly have more time to lose or gain places), and to get more drivers
yes i agree with longer races.. last weeks number of laps was not enough (it should have been 25, not 16 laps, it was my mistake on the server setup, sorry guys) i want to keep the races around 25-30 min to accommodate the people who are on the east coast and have to work (which is most of the group) i try not to keep them up too late so they can get some sleeeeeeep ...
Be sure and cast your vote in the "NEW POLL THREAD" for the type of cars you want to run for season #3 starting mid May... all car mods up for vote are available for d/l in AC Car mods thread of forums, go check them out...

Nice turn out at Barbagello. Let's make sure we keep that up!
I bashed Loren right at the start. Probably ruined his car, sorry, I know it does not put thumbs back on the hand, but I did not mean to start so hard and damage your car.
After that it was head down try to get something out of the race mode. Hard to do when you are slow, and did not get a good start. Some of the leading cars had some issues I think. I think maybe I was able to get a spot when others made a mistake.
Eventually I was getting lapped. I kind of hate that. I try my best to be competitive, maybe consistent, but it sucks to go a lap down. I did my best to "move over" for the leaders.
A fun track, not crazy difficult, but easy enough to make big mistakes. Maybe I have not run enough Aussie tracks?
Donnington park will be awesome. Seems like a fast circuit. Tough turn 1, and lots of run off room when you get any section wrong.

I am having a lot of fun with this too. Thanks for putting it together for us, Coby. I really appreciate it. I haven't had any online racing in a VERY long time and I've ALWAYS wanted to run in an Assetto Corsa League. Looking forward to Donington! (You are welcome in regards to the questions Coby, not a problem!)
