What are your thoughts on Simraceway compared to iRacing?

Very comparable so far. Simraceway has CotA, and it's not limited to F1 cars, that's what got me to play with it. (and it's free!)
I heard of a new one called "Project Cars" that got great reviews via youtube vids but can't seem to find the link to purchase or download.

Project Cars is still under development. If you bought in and supported the game early on, you can download new builds and basically play an Alpha version of the game while under development.

Ok, I've sent friend requests out to everyone in this thread. I have to say that I'm pretty addicted to this game right now. It can be frustrating sometimes because of the actions of other racers. But I'm going through the Skip Barber book "Going Faster" right now and it's a lot of fun to read a few chapters and then get online and practice in a real sim with real pedals. This is definitely a step up from GT5.

Just wanted to let everyone know that iRacing will be releasing a laser scanned version of COTA on April 29th, 2014. I will purchase it right away and post a video here so folks can see what it looks like and compare to their real world experiences on the track. Stay tuned.

Awesome, I will probably re-subscribe just to experience COTA on iRacing.

iRacing's attention to detail is impressive:


I like cars, airplanes, running, and coding :: Keep the revs up and don't lift!

For those that haven't signed on in a while, the new RUF Porsches are awesome.  A number of other cars received updated tire models as well.

Yeah, I mostly just drive the MX5s. But I plan on buying the RUF C-Spec immediately. Looks like fun.

I prefer the RUF 'Track', but will drive either of them.  It's hard to go between them though.  The 1,000 RPM lower redline and no anti-lock brakes on the C-Spec takes a bit to get used to when coming from the Track Spec.  In all honesty the RUF 'Track' feels the most similar to driving my real car on track.

 

Hit me up when you buy one of the Porsches (or all? used to be able to get them all in one package).  I've got a bunch of good setups for the RUF Track and a few for the C-Spec.

Please share your setups.  I finally got the stupid Mustang set up like I want it, but I'm just not enamored with the tracks they've been throwing at us lately.  Road America this week is pretty good, but it so looooooooooong.

Yeah, I don't race the Mustang. I pretty much stick with the MX5. But I'm thinking of getting a few others. Top on my list is the RUFs, followed by the Radical SR8, the Spec Racer Ford and the Skip Barber Formula 2000. That ought to keep me busy for a couple of years. But if there were a group of guys interested in racing Mustangs, I'd pick one up. 

 

As you've probably noticed, they screw you on the tracks. Each season, it's a slightly different set of tracks which forces you to buy content if you want to compete all season. It's quite the racket. That's why I keep rooting for the competition. But so far ...
