    You are awesome man. I can't give enough thanks. If you ever need some video editing or some photoshopping, don't hesitate to ask me for it :cheers:

    What was it like to drive? Did your brain start to drive like it was in GT6 and then instantly make corrections for where the real life physics differ?

    While the sound isn't perfect (I maintain that no game ever will be), the car sounds nothing like a vacuum cleaner. I would suggest that you go find some bass for your punchless audio system and try again. If you are already running a proper audio system then I suggest you adjust some settings to take advantage of it.

    If you applied the same concept from gran turismo to real life it's much easier to drive the car but you have to be careful. Otherwise it felt close to the game in real life I just felt the GForces. The tire modeling is way off though

    Those kinds of things didn't even come into my head during my first track day. I had thought about them before getting on track, but the wisdom of instructors was so much better, and gradually working up to race speed was a better way to feel the limits. In GT, you rely on force feedback and noise to find the limit. In a car, it's all about feel and the forces on your body.

    If anything, learning the fundamentals in GT does help, and made me far less nervous on my first day. It allowed me to focus on other things, and fine tune more meticulous things much sooner in the day.

    It was a joke. I didn't mean to offend. I'll put on my headphones tomorrow and see how it sounds.

    As much as I would like to say that GT had helped in bringing me up to speed on that track day, It really didn't do all that much. The one thing it did prepare me for was to never assume what the car ahead is going to do... Those crazy A.I. are modeled perfectly after some of the students that showed up :lol:

    Ok guy's;
    Repairs to the G-27 have finally been successfully accomplished, I ran in multiple room's tonight and had no equipment failure, so "STAND BY TO STAND BY"!:mischievous:

    The "STAND BY BY TO STAND BY" is a quote from an old friend @AJKVail
    I just like it!

    Race Hard, Race clean...and Race Friends! :cheers:

    My hotel in Madrid is one block from the sharp hairpin in Circuito de Madrid in GT6.

    I think I will do a 'course walk' this morning with a camera.

    London was a hoot when I walked the track last year. There is even a Subway restaurant where a real version stands.

    Congrats to all the Academy participants - I hope you had a great experience, regardless of where you placed. Good luck to those that need more in the future - and that is all of them, no matter where they go.

    Unexpected - huge heatwave in Madrid, through most of Spain. Temps should rise another 5-10 degrees this afternoon...

    Are you a solitary traveler or do you have a companion with you?

    He and the RX-8 weren't allowed back on track that afternoon... Probably a good idea
