My car has looked like this since November, waiting on a brand new engine from the engine builder. It was finally finished last week and will be in the car soon. We’ll be taking it to Summit Point for the first weekend in April for a shakedown and then two weeks later is our first F1600 Championship Race in Atlanta.
You think you’re going to watch two minutes of this just to say ‘wtf,’ but after 10 minutes you’ll be cheering for your favorite team and marking the Marblelympics on your calendar.
DCS F-14 was just released, a hyper-realistic simulation of the F-14 Tomcat. Are there any other virtual fighter jocks on Oppo?
Apologies if Kinja is doing the double-image thing.
Well, of course you do!
Met some of the girlfriend’s family. Drank a lot of coffee. Ate a lot of pasta and cotoletta. Somehow still lost 6 lbs.
On Sunday the DCS: F-14 was officially announced, to be released sometime this winter. It’s a 100% realistic F-14 simulator with every switch, button, and system functional.

As far as I understand it should be some simple trigo…
The last round of the season was last weekend in New Jersey, I got one DNF (a bolt in the mechanical linkage fell out as we were rolling up to the green flag) and two 7th places. I finished 16th out of 32 in the championship.
I was 7th quickest out of 21 in both practice sessions on Friday, but in qualifying the left-rear king pin snapped and the wheel ripped off. Luckily I was able to keep it under control and avoid the walls, but the repair by amateur mechanics took a long time and it knocked us out of Race 1.
Cuz why not, yea?
But F1 has road courses, street circuits, and autocross.
Started 31st but with a fast car. It’s so much fun racing through a city park.
I had to retire from two of three races this weekend at VIR as it started raining in the middle of the race, and I don’t have the resources to change tires mid-race.
