IRL


I haven't watched a lot of Indy Car racing this year, but is it just me, or are the cars migrating back to more of a CART look?

You can stop reading here if you wish. I'm just musing from here on down.


I know they lost the wheel "fenders", and had aero trouble with them, plus damage issues, but I'd kinda gotten used to them. JR and I were in St. Pete their first year and I remember how odd they looked.

BTW - I reloaded CART on my refurbished W98 machines. Dang thing only runs at 640X480; looked like crap. Guess I'll have to load up one/some of the old F1 games, or reload mods for Heat for my open wheel fix. The Voodoo 5s won't run N2K3, so I can't use that mod.

GPL sure looks good on those old machines; just have to drop that specific 3dfx/glide friendly tree into tracks downloaded after I gave up my V5s. Then again, GPL looks good on my "newer" (LOL built in '07) nVidia machine too. And of course, GPL was apparently made with the old red MOMO wheel in mind. You can tell the difference of dirt, sand, kerbs, and rumble strips with it.

Re: IRL


I don't watch much Indy Racing. I pretty much only watch the Indy 500 every year and that's it. I thought the cars looked great yesterday, and yes,they did have a bit of an "old school" look to them.

I'll probably one of the very few who actually liked how the DW12 cars looked. But the cars yesterday looked great to me as well. emoticon

I was never a fan of the dw12 car. But I do like the way the new cars look as well.
