  1. I'm glad to hear that it is realistic. My laptop is short 1GB of 'Dedicated Video RAM' according to iRacing's computer test, so I am pretty disappointed that I won't be able to join in on all the fun - now is not the time to be spending $1,000 on a new laptop/pc.
  2. That's very interesting and helpful, thank you. Now it just sounds like I need to get a new laptop in order to play it.
  3. Thank you. I'm very interested in trying this out. Anyone here have any success on Iracing using a laptop? Do you need a 'gaming' laptop or desktop for best results? My laptop (Sony Vaio) is a desktop replacement from about 8 years ago. I'm a little concerned that it may not be fast enough. I'll have to compare the specs on the Iracing page.
  4. They didn't end up shortening it. However, with this delayed start to the season that we are going to have, now would be a good time to shorten it.
  5. Is it possible to just practice without getting involved in an organized event? I've raced DTR2 and DIRTFactor, but I haven't tried Iracing yet, but I am tempted too.
  6. Is it possible that given the likelihood that the SDS will have far less events then originally scheduled, we may see a few surprises hop on board to try to follow the SDS? It may be a good year for some drivers to 'try it out'.
  7. I'm not going to get into the health care debate, there are pros and cons to both systems. As far as balancing budgets, Stephen Harper was able to balance the Federal budget (prior to the 2008 recession). I'm not a big Doug Ford fan, but he's doing better than the Wynne Government (which I believe their deficit was around $14B, iirc). Look at our dollar, you can't honestly tell me that's a good reflection on our economy. It is a big reason our local racing scene is being hit pretty hard, everything costs an extra 30% as all parts come from the US. Trust me, while I dont pay the bills for the team that I help, I see them and that 30% is a huge figure.
  8. This person (JohnyC) does not speak for all Canadians... some of us are tired of the socialism and would prefer a little more capitalism in our goverment. This was obvious in the last election when Trudeau lost the popular vote to the Conservatives, however; he is still the PM, so another several years of unbalanced budgets, extreme deficits and economy crippling socialism is ahead of us (Canadians).
  9. Mandee did an interview with Bicknell Racing Products last winter. The full interview was played on Weedsport's Off Track TV: https://www.offtracktv.com/episodes/s2e2-bicknell-racing-products-randy-williamson-mike-mahaney-mandee-pauch/
  10. It went down for me too. I had to refresh the browser (Chrome) about a dozen times to get it working.
  11. They were apparently doing it once the ground froze this Fall...
  12. They're also bringing in the back stretch.
  13. Thank you for this info, I'll keep an eye on my card.
  14. The Fast Pass is a monthly subscription, there was no option to buy the weekend only. It was either a) Buy a Fast Pass (monthly subscription) or b) Buy each event separately.
