I hate to be nitpicky, but that 175mph wall shot at 2'25 invalidated Joey's lap in my opinion. He's a pro race driver, let's see a completely clean lap, he still may beat Kaz. I bet Kaz didn't contact any barriers. I'm just sayin'...............

 


Lol, tell Joey that to his face! Smiley Tongue

 

Kaz probably did hit barriers but he was an excpetion because he's Kaz.

The more upmarket wheels usually exceed $200. One of the most popular is the Logitech G27, Amazon.com has it for $219.99. The G27 is recognised to be the premier racing wheel to use in video games. It's now defunct predecessor, the popualar Logitech G25, can be found sometimes on eBay but usually for extorsionate prices.


That's not exactly true.  Some prefer the fanatec wheels over the G27 though they tend to be pricier.  I don't think that many people would argue that the G27 pedals are as good as the fanatec clubsport pedals.

 


I did try and keep it as open as possible. Guess I missed out "some people recognise".

Laps aren't invalidated for a wall touch in real life, especially in NASCAR.

But in real life, when you touch the wall, your lap's over and it usually ends in tears.

That depends on a lot of things, but as far as esthetics go, we like clean laps.

Wow that smashed up 458 Italia looks stunning! I wasn't expecting the damage to be that extensive, this is great news!
