    $250,000? Drop in the bucket for DJR. As for Fabian, do you follow team orders, play nice and protect your team mate & paycheck or take the moral high ground. It's a tough one. Personally, I'd have have pulled up the park brake, read a book and watched SVG froth even harder, because 2nd place to me is only the first loser. If I can't win, I'll take some solice in knowing my team mate did. The others? They're nothing, just obstacles.

    A lot of if's and but's, but if SVG was the better driver he wouldn't have been behind Scott in the first place. Which team in any sport hasn't pulled a similar stunt like that to protect their lead? Anyways, enough rambling from me

    I’m a diehard V8 Supercar fan.
    I used to play with and build up the X series (XE,XE,EF)
    But my baby (Refreshed and newly built XE falcon was stolen.

    But my current car is ok too:

    In case anyone missed it. Romain Grosjean had a massive crash on lap 1 of the Bahrain GP last night. The car speared through the barrier, was ripped in half and erupted in a fireball.

    If this crash happened before 2018 and the introduction of the Halo safety device RoGro would have been killed.

    I have a list of all G1 characters that have been released in CHUG form. You can find it here. Please feel free to let me know if I got anything wrong so I can fix it.

    I watched it live on my phone. Pretty scary stuff especially since it happened so quickly.

    The sim racing hardware market is in a bit of a strange state at the moment.

    Fanatec has just released and sold out of, the CSL DD. A direct drive wheelbase for only $350 USD, as opposed to the other direct drive wheels in the market that can cost thousands of dollars.

    Basically, Fanatec has just made everything except the cheapest products on the market like the Logitech G29 obsolete.
