Anyone still SIM Racing? I still have N2003. Picked up some of the latest mods but was wondering what the next generation sim is.

iRacing is the best, but it is strictly online. NR2003 is probably still decent for racing against the AI. I've never tried ARCA Sim racing, as the opinions vary from great to "it sucks".

My 16 year old son started iRacing 8 months ago and he has now passed me in iRating. Those young reflexes are no joke. Granted, he is still mostly racing the street stock and the Super Late Model. He doesn't quite understand coil binding/bump stops that is needed with the Gen6, so I will have to help him out there when he wants to run open sets in those cars.

I still have NR2003 and NR2005 and alot of the mods somewhere lost on a hard drive. I might need the no cd hack. Do they still have a server or was it shut down?

Seen NASCAR 14 is out but not available for the xbox one! WTF!!?!?

I do some iRacing. I agree with what Bham said. If you catch it right, its about $50 per year. I havent raced in a while, but you can earn credit by racing.

It is very detailed on setup.

FWIW I've raced Jr., Jacque Villenueve, Mike whatshisname (31 car teamate of Dale Sr.) And Jr's spotter, whose name also eludes me, and Justin Labonte on there.

Those were the days. I remember when we had our racingstalkers league.
BTW, if you still sim race, pay attention to the development of Occulus Rift. It is currently supported by iRacing in it's development form and will of course be supported when the retail version becomes available. I've never tried it, but those who have say it's amazing.

My oldest was iRacing for a while...until he used Mom and Dad's money instead of his own :annoy:

I got a media center pc hooked up to 120" projector screen last fall. Madden 25 looks awesome! I would love to try NR2003 on it I usually stick to the NFS series.
