 New Sim Rennsport is Coming 

The pieces are all falling in place. We’ve had several high profile, Sim drivers, announce, leaving their teams without announcing where they’re going we have the new SIM coming out called Rennsport.  Which is the obvious landing spot. Now we have faze clan one of the twins from the lady my wife works with announce a partnership with Porsche.  I think he’s called faze swag.

So basically, Porsche is trying to do the same thing that motorsports games is doing  

They got a media outlet  check  

They got drivers   Check

They got publicity and buying onto esports   CheckSo the speculation today is Porsche actually is funding Rennsport

More Daytona Stats

Steve Myers breaks down some more incredible stats from Daytona

https://twitter.com/iRacingMyers/status/1617654498348105729


Team Tifosi Results

Team Fast – BMW LMDH, David Hall, Greg Hecktus, Mike Ellis, Tom Dryling, and Kyle Pendegraft

P4 finish, car drove like a dump truck the last segment. Definitely couldn’t get through the corners like we could early in the race. We did lead 2 laps of the race and out fastest lap was 1:32.667 on lap 629, An average lap time of 1:39.541, We completed 861 had 94X  and was -35 Laps down

Team Fun – Ferrari GTE, Tony Rochette, Tyler Williamson, Donnie Spiker, Chris Scales.

P14 Finish – Team Captain Tony Rochette took the green to start the race. A couple on track incidents and a hardware malfunction resulted in the team being 31 laps down by the end of the race. Team Fun continued to push all day and all night and ended with a 14 place finish. The team received 51X, the 3rd least amongst all teams.

Most Laps Run – Donnie Spiker (281), Fastest Lap – Tyler Williamson (1:45:717)



Another Exploit Exposed

Unfortunately, the race was not without its controversies with allegations of blocking and running off of the racing surface.

Greg West in the Forums

iRacing Member – Lennart Blok

can’t iRacing add a 0x off track in the apron? (@Greg West )

I get that they don’t want to consider this an actual of track as it’s there for a reason, but at least with a 0x it will invalidate the laptime for these purposes.

I suppose this method could also be used on other tracks where the off track surface has similar conflicting purposes.

Greg West

We are aware of this situation and investigating.

I can say that this specific scenario was discussed in a pre race briefing. We have not put a 1x down there prior to encourage cars that might be limping back to the pits to stay off the racing line. We will be discussing mechanisms to mitigate the ability to use this area in an advantageous manner moving forward.

The Sporting Code specifically outlines this situation; “8.1.1.8. Drivers can only use the racing surface for Qualifying and Racing. The apron and pit road are not defined as racing surfaces. Drivers may not use the apron or pit road to gain an advantage in Qualifying or Racing. Any advantage will be determined by iRacing.com. A protest may be filed through the proper channels for this offense”.

The area is clearly coned off, we would hope that would be enough of a deterrent.

Nascar Cup Series Template and Model Updates

Brian Simpson Posts:

Just a heads up, Nascar has changed how the hood louvers and noses are modeled for the 2023 season. This required us to update our 3d models to match these changes. They were restricted to the nose, hood, and fenders. While we tried to match the existing UV’s as closely as we could, there will be changes that need to be made on existing custom schemes to match these edits.

Just a FYI you may want to look over your paints.

The Sim Racer Movie Review

According to Overtake GG: Should You Watch It?

Ultimately, whilst the movie isn’t perfect or ground-breaking, it’s very enjoyable for a microbudget movie of this sort. It may be found to be derivative and filled with tropes, but it’s a sweet, in the pocket and down to earth story about an average guy who is in to sim racing.

The Sim Racer is a great foundation to build upon for the future of movies centred around sim racing, and it feels somewhat like validation for our niche hobby of driving pretend racecars. With the Gran Turismo movie releasing in August, could these two movies be the springboard for showing off the appeal of racing on video games?

NASCAR iRacing Series

Friday Open: North Wilkesboro

Mike- p. The green stayed out until lap 50 for the first caution got the lucky dog. Stayed out of trouble pretty much around 13th and 15th most of the race pitted for the last time with 50 to go. They just keep wreckin and I kept moving up by the first green white checker. I was P4 by the first green white checker, I was the leader for the second green white checker second place got next to me on the white on the back I tried to cross over I barely touched him and he went around and I won the race. I didn’t want to win it that way and I told him that looking at the replay it was pretty much net code if anything he didn’t complain so I celebrated the win.  My 91st career

Donnie Q10/ P Wrecked

Sunday Fixed 

  • Mike – p  used the beta UI to launch, and it would not try it a few times ended up, rebooting and getting in right before grid. However, my main speakers were not working and there was no time to fix. I can hear the engine sound barely out of the subwoofer, so I’m OK for this race but how frustrating experience it is Top split road around the back ended up bringing out the third caution on my own spitting off down on the inside no damage. Ran about 15 the 10th most of the race with two to go. They had a big wreck and I couldn’t miss it. I got the beat Ball ended up losing a lap P 19. Upfront on the white flag third place pulled the Ross Chastain move and rode the wall and ended up passing two spots to get the win in the final corners.

Wednesday Open: dover

Mike –  p 15. Ran around 10 most of the race got involved in an incident with a lapcars fun had no damage was sitting there parked for a few seconds before somebody plowed in several seconds after the yellow was out I ended up two laps down P 15.

  • Ellis – p 4 ran top 10 most of the race the back half of the top 10 as we ran a long green flag run. At the end we were going to have to do a splash and go. I waited, insure enough somebody spun getting on the pit Road the caution came out, bunched us up and I finished


Official Series

DAYTONA ROAR

  • Tony Rochette –  Wrecked out early.
  • Mike Ellis – I ran about for the sixth most of the race that 50 for a faster car ran over me coming out of the bath stop and dumped me head on into the wall 44 minutes damage. It’s so frustrating to get run over from behind when you can’t do anything to avoid it, I let the guy know how happy I was.
  • Donnie – GT4 Only Split, P13 out of 48 Cars.

Ellis–  F 2000 at Phoenix qualified eight out of 14. At one point fifth sixth and seventh collected each other on the back stretch then second and third collected each other and then I brought it home from there P3.

  • Indy pro 2000 @Rudskogen. Started fifth and finished P3. Add pressure at the end from fourth but was able to keep my cool he eventually spun off.
  • F 2000 at rodSkogan. Started P2 finished P2. Got the lead on lap one, but foolishly spun on my own, and fell back to fit then drove my way back up to second was catching the leader, but ran out of laps

NASCAR iRacing Series

Wednesday Open:  Michigan

Mike –  p21- I save fuel like crazy to make it on a one stop strategy. I saved enough to get to lap 51 out of 100 but the leaders also did I don’t know how. I was dead last when I put it under green and I would’ve made it on one stop, but the caution came out shortly after.  Later I got involved in an incident when a guy let off the gas weigh early getting into the corner and I ran over him. Several minutes damage. Otis Road it home.

Indy Car iRacing Re-Hash

It’s been a little over a week, and the iRacing community is taking charge.

https://twitter.com/ArjunaKankipati/status/1606435836815458306

Do we have any lawyers here in the mix of iracing drivers? This almost sounds like grounds for a class action lawsuit against Indycar by the iracers of the world.

https://forums.iracing.com/discussion/comment/279905/#Comment_279905

IndyCar’s abandonment of an established entryway comes at an inopportune time, as the series has finally seen a long-needed influx of young new fans in 2022. Forbes reports that the first three televised IndyCar races of the season brought in the series’ highest viewership in 19 years and that its streaming audience had an average age in the 30s. That stands in stark contrast with the majority of IndyCar fans, which Racer reports are much older: 68.3% of IndyCar’s TV audience is 55 or older. A whole 43.6% are 65-plus, which puts the series at risk of losing most of its fanbase over the next few decades.

https://www.thedrive.com/news/indycar-is-pulling-out-of-iracing-and-everyone-is-pissed-off

So I can’t even say I was born and raised in Indy on my iracing profile? That seems a bit far to ban a very standard abbreviation of a city, let alone ban Indy500 (if split apart) and Indycar directly.

So it’s now against the rules for me to say in my profile that I joined Iracing due to being a big Indycar fan from Indy, who’s attended 30 Indy 500s.

Is Active Reset a Good or Bad Thing?

Fellow iRacer, Damon Black posted in the forums and stating that, Active Reset could be Considered Harmful.

“I’m sure it will be a minority opinion, but I think active reset diminishes the iRacing experience. It’s moving test (solo practice) sessions away from a sim driving experience and toward monotonous game-grinding. I also suspect it will produce drivers who can nail qualifying laps, but are a disaster when they have to drive off their ideal line.”

More on Active Pedals

Lots of Sim Racing journalists have had time to try and give thoughts on the new Simucube Active Pedal System



Dan Suzuki on the Active Pedal

an Suzuki12/01/2022 2:21 PM

Tried these pedals today and wow, this definitely is something very unique that I have never tried before. I personally think it’s amazing to see a company doing something completely new. Of course it is expensive and I’m sure the people at Simucube would be more than happy if they could produce and sell them at a lower price – there is so much tech in these – you basically get a simucube per pedal and then a lot of stuff around it. They feel amazing to drive with. I need to come back in the next days and do some more testing, I wonder how they feel on a car without ABS – can you feel the lockups if you disable ABS on the cars? Anyways, just wanted to share my quick first impressions, I love it when something completely new and unseen is coming out. If it wasn’t for these “jumps” in technology we would all still be driving with our Logitech G25. I wonder what some people in here do when they find out what sports cars can cost …. :kapp:

Dan Suzuki12/01/2022 2:29 PM

you can feel the car loosing traction. i thought it was a bit exagerated in the profile they used on the rig i was testing, but then again its super customizable



Marko from Simcube on Active Pedal Pricing on their Discord Server

Marko | Simucube12/01/2022 6:53 AM

Dear everyone,

Thank you sincerely for your comments. I carefully read through almost all of them. We honestly take all the opinions you shared to heart. The price for the ActivePedals was very carefully considered and hotly debated in-house before the launch. When we started developing the pedals, we knew the price point would not be very affordable, but based on the feedback on our other product releases, we knew that a set of basic pedals would be a letdown to the community.. so we opted to produce the best pedals in existence. As many of you guessed, the cost for R&D was substantial, but this was not the main reason for the price we are asking for. The main reason for the cost is that the components used in the pedals are the best available. Really, everything is top notch. So yes, the ActivePedals cost a substantial amount, but they are designed to last at least twenty years. These will not break, will not loose responsiveness or feel old after five years.

A SC2 plus a quality steering wheel cost more and we feel that for improving your lap times the pedals are even more crucial. This is the pedal for driving on the edge. This is the pedal we poured everything we got into.. and we will support and improve the features of the ActivePedals for years to come. If anyone knows us, they know this to be true.. it’s the same as with True Drive, the development has just started.

We understand the price was a shock for many, but this was the price this exceptional piece of gear can be sold currently. We truly appreciate the feedback from everyone.

-Marko, Simucube



Beano iRacing from Active Pedal Discord Channel his conversation with David Tucker of iRacing

Beano iRacing 🇦🇺 — Yesterday at 1:50 PM

Coming back to a discussion over at iRacing, where David Tucker, the main FFB Developer, had this to say yesterday – I waited with posting due to asking his consent to post this – apologies for it being in a few parts, it was a bit long for Discord to go in one post – anyway really excited for some of these concepts to make it into sims, now that the technology to benefit from these are there:

Quote @David Tucker:

This is all pure speculation at this point, so it is difficult to answer your questions. Naturally we want to support the latest hardware, but we also want to spread our engineering efforts out fairly. This is just the first pass at a brand new idea, hopefully the second and third passes will help solidify what is and is not important in the design and we will see this become more commonplace.

As for potential benefits, that is really up in the air right now. We know that pedals are a weak spot (as are shifters) in the sim world. Everyone that gets there first rig wants to get a clutch pedal and h-pattern shifter and is very disappointed when they find out it feels nothing like driving a stick shift car. Some of that is because race cars are nothing like your daily driver, but a lot falls on the pedals (and shifter) not really giving enough feedback.

In my opinion these are some of the potential benefits of these pedals.

Part 2: Can be adjusted to match the throw and pressure profile of every car so it feels more like the real thing. This is a big plus for immersion.

Can accurately match the feel of a clutch pedal. This is something existing pedals could have done, but most do not. Hopefully with a bit of feedback from the sim you could feel the clutch plate chatter and get more out of it.

Can reproduce chatter from the brake system such as the pulsing of the ABS. Ultimately this requires better modeling on our part to try and perfectly match the behavior of the real thing. We probably don’t have the info to really nail this, but we can get close enough. And even with minimal sim support we can probably make this feel nice.

Can reproduce brake fade, a worn clutch, or ruptured brake lines and a whole host of other failures. Imagine having your brake pedal suddenly drop to the floor, it would be amazingly scary.

Can simulate the feel of brake assist. It is a subtle thing you don’t usually notice but your brake assist in your passenger car does not work in lock step with your foot. It tends to have a bit of delay and ramps up the assist over time so you get a feeling of the pedal moving on its own. Try pushing slowly on the brake pedal next time your parked and you will be able to feel this.

Can simulate g-force acting on your legs to soften up the brakes as deceleration increases. This is intriguing to me, as I mentioned above a lot of pro drivers say a static pedal set can’t ever feel like the real thing. Potentially this could get around it.

Can provide LFE style vibrations at your feet that change from pedal to pedal. This is especially useful on cars like the skippy that rely on mechanical linkages that couple directly to the transmission. You should be able to feel the engine and transmission buck when adjusting the throttle and more direct vibration at the pedals as well.

Part 3:

That is a lot of potential, but it is also a lot of work to really be able to fully take advantage of it all. We may need to extend our models. For example our clutch plate can’t really chatter, our brake rotors can’t warp, and so on. But if we have a way to give you those details then there is incentive on our end to model more of them.

Are you tired of your pedals feeling like a video game? Want to step up to feeling like you’re actually driving? 

We designed our P1 Pro Pedals to feel exactly like a real car giving you a better feeling when you’re driving. Push braking zones to the limit and avoid locking up by having a finer feel of the limits. Trail brake into the corner smoother allowing you to carry more speed. 

Our P1 Pro Pedals will be the last set of pedals you’ll ever purchase for your simulator. Lifetime Warranty is included. That means if you ever run into issues in years to come, we’ll service them and keep them perfect!

Do We Need to Update All Our Paints

For the 2023 Season 1 build iRacing is adding a new shader to the sim that will allow you to add a clear coat to your car for custom schemes!

This new shader will allow you to put a clear shell over the existing paint scheme of the car with it’s own specular qualities separate from the underlying material. This is meant to replicate automotive paintjobs where the underlying car paint is overlaid with an acrylic clear coat. 

https://forums.iracing.com/discussion/32624/new-clearcoat-feature-added-in-iracing-2023-season-1#latest

Patrick Lindsey 

This change won’t effect cars without spec maps, just ones that have a spec map other than the default values, right?

Brian Simpson 

That is correct. If you don’t have a custom spec map you don’t have to edit anything. If you do and want to keep your current look. Make the blue channel on your custom spec map pure black (0, 0, 0 RGB).



Trading Paints Paint of the Year

Trading Paints is now taking votes for round one of the Paint of the Year contest.  Also, on the other side of the spectrum,  Nascarcasm will be taking submissions for the ugliest paint scheme.

No Refunds for the RTX 4080

 It’s no secret that the RTX 4080 has not been selling particularly well, primarily due to its $1,200 price tag, which most people feel is far too expensive. The situation has even impacted scalpers, with many now having to resell their cards at MSRP or even less in some cases. A few second-hand sellers have tried returning them, which seems to have prompted certain retailers to stop offering refunds for the RTX 4080.

Scalpers are struggling to sell the RTX 4080 above MSRP, but retailers won’t let them return the cards

XR Supported Foveated Rendering

Varjo has on their website a great explanation of how their dynamic foveated system works in XR and how your eyes interpret what is being displayed in VR

A great explanation how our eyes work and what they can actually see in VR and how OpenXR helps with the performance of VR.

Human eyes have a unique design with two kinds of photosensors, the rod and the cones. Cones are very accurate and detect fine details. Rods are much more sensitive to light than cones, but blurrier. Cones and Rods are distributed very non-uniformly. Cones are concentrated within a few degrees of field of view around the gaze. There are no rods in the center of the FOV, but they are covering most of the eye field of view. There is even a blind spot where the nerve is attached, an entire area of the eye that has no photosensors at all.

Elvis Rankin Converts Skip Barber Formula iRacing Series Results Into Real-World Title Shot

Earlier this year, Indianapolis-based teenager Elvis Rankin impressed sim racing and real-world racing pros alike with a stellar performance in the inaugural Skip Barber Formula iRacing Series. His runner-up finish in that championship gave him the opportunity to compete in this year’s Skip Barber Formula Race Series in the real world, with a half-season scholarship to help him showcase his skills.

Flash forward to this week’s season finale at Circuit of the Americas, and Rankin has done much more than just show up for half the races. It took him just two rounds at his debut event at Lime Rock Park to find the top step of the podium for the first time, and after formalizing a full-season campaign, he enters Rounds 13 and 14 with a 13-point championship advantage.

Elvis won the sbrs 2022 season

Update sent in from Listener Jason Bosse

Skip Barber formula series’ last race week was Nov 29th and 30th. I do not know his finishing positions (he’s too cool to respond to old mx5 racing buddies) but the season is over and he is champion.

iRacing Setup Differ – Message from Developer

  1. Hi Steve what a nice surprise you mentioned the iRacing SetupDiffer software on your show. with the busy season around thanksgiving, i am a few shows behind in listening to the podcast. I just listed to the November 10th show today.
  2. I created the iRacing SetupDiffer because at the time, all the setup comparison tools required you to export the setups to an HTML file and compare the “files” themselves. that has a number of problems, the main one being the comparison program has to be updated to work with each new car, and occasionally, with season updates, or changes that iRacing makes to an existing car. with the iRacing SetupDiffer,
  3. I wanted to create a tool that was simple and straightforward, and worked with any car, and any seasonal update, without forcing users to constantly download new versions of the software. from the user feedback I’ve received, this has been a success. one of the most often mentioned features is the ability to compare the existing setup in iRacing (extracted live), with a version used in a previous race or practice session (extracted from the telemetry files). Also, not that it makes any real sense to do so, but it can also be fun to compare setups from completely different types of cars, just to learn what is different between them. anyway, thanks for mentioning the software. it was an unexpected surprise. see you on the track

TITLE SPONSOR READ:

Are you tired of your pedals feeling like a video game? Want to step up to feeling like you’re actually driving? 

We designed our P1 Pro Pedals to feel exactly like a real car giving you a better feeling when you’re driving. Push braking zones to the limit and avoid locking up by having a finer feel of the limits. Trail brake into the corner smoother allowing you to carry more speed. 

Our P1 Pro Pedals will be the last set of pedals you’ll ever purchase for your simulator. Lifetime Warranty is included. That means if you ever run into issues in years to come, we’ll service them and keep them perfect!

The New Damage Model is coming pre-enabled on all new content except for the Stock Car Pro Series Cars.

Also, the NASCAR Camping World Trucks have been updated to their 2022 NASCAR Season specs, including a top-to-bottom full art upgrade for the Toyota Tundra TRD Pro.

This season includes the release of iRacing’s first fully electric race car, the Porsche Mission R, a pair of new European Road Courses, Motorsport Arena Oschersleben and Rudskogen Motorsenter, and a new Dirt Oval, Lucas Oil Speedway. We’ve added Indianapolis Motor Speedway – IndyCar Oval using our 2022 laser scan data, and have rebuilt all of the artwork for both the ARCA Menards Chevrolet Impala and Lotus 79 from scratch. A host of quality upgrades have also been completed, including a substantial change to the New Damage Model so that now damage builds up in areas on your car with repeated strikes which could eventually cause breakage, a rewrite and significant upgrade to the Low-Frequency Effects audio system, and the addition of Driving Aid Pit Lines for all Road Courses. For the iRacing UI, the veteran-favorite Race Guide is now available, as well as Custom Car Classes for AI Racing, and a few new Guided Tours.
