DJ-Yee J give his listeners a flavor of just what a encyclopedia this 1 hour and 21 minute video covers…. So the following is a sample of topics covered from minute 22 to 32 – Grass physics, Meatball, 40 Piece Discount, Scott Speed Incident, Lost Indycar License, Outdated Track Scans, NJ Motorsports Park tech track forever, Downtime Testing, Chicago StreetCourse Made in iRacing, Nim Cross, Jos Verstappen, Kern County, Talladega Car Launch, No LeMans Bugatti Circuit, Spa 24 Incident Glitches, Broadcasting forbidden for certain cars, Dega Gotta Pit, Hidden Dale Jr, Verstappen practicing f1 overtake, Gen 4 is an accident, Fuel Savings Techniques, Discontinued World Championships, Brake Dragging, Kneebon5 vs setup shops – So those topics are only 10 minutes of this 1 hour 21 minute video… Kudos for DJ Yee-J for this very cool idea…. For new people that just want to absorb everything there is to know about iRacing, I cannot think of a single place you could sit and get literally a ton of knowledge…
