I just read an article about a new road racing track to be built here in Arizona south of Casa Grande! Really happy to hear about it, cause it's way past time for a viable full-time road track here. I'm really hoping it will pull F1 racing after it's completed. https://santanvalley.com/san-tan-valley-area-infor...uction-to-commence-spring-2020 What's really cool too is that it's projected to be a whole community with homes, hotels, businesses, etc. Arizona International Raceway @ Attesa

Just a thought... In the open practice sessions, in the days prior to the Wed race; particularly ones open for recruitment: What do you think of NOT having a fixed setup practice? We can pick up the setup we'll be using and practice with it and/or compare it against previous 60+ setups, against others we might have, etc. We could also share setups then and make comparisons. (EDIT: I worded that badly, i meant to imply continuing with the practice sessions, just opting for open setups rather than fixed.) Obviously, we're not necessarily going for the fastest setup available, but we could still compare stability and stuff. Wednesday it should be fixed 'cause by then we're going to use that for racing. Please understand, i'm not complaining about our setups, to my mind they're excellent for me. I routinely set my best times with our 60+ setups and keep them for the regular series races. I just think it would be a good time to test and share sets. Whaddya think?

I really look forward to Wednesday's road race, enough so that i would like to see another day when we get together; but maybe with a closed-wheel car? Is there any interest in playing with a fixed-setup car (like the Radical or RUF) and meeting on some other weekday using the track and setup from the active session? If there's interest, i'd like to keep the extra work and cost to a minimum. No broadcast, no custom setup. No extra practice sessions would be necessary 'cause we could just practice during the week on the active track. Whaddya think?

Joel was thanked today for creating the practice session, and it got me wondering; did he pay for that out-of-pocket? I know that it's been quite a while since a request was made for donations to the league and i can't help but wonder if funds have run dry to pay for the practice sessions and the 'televised' races. I REALLY don't want any one individual to feel responsible for supporting our racing enjoyment. So, i have two questions i'd like to ask... 1- How are we sitting in terms of League finances? (I don't care to know exact figures, just would like to know if there's a comfortable buffer for the season). 2- Is it time to put out a request pass the hat among us League members? I greatly appreciate the time and effort folks put in to keep our League a fun and competitive place to come play. But their time and effort should be the only burden placed on them... not League expenses.

I had a problem occasionally with double and even triple down-shifting. Caused me to blow my motor a couple times, and spin often. I thought my shifter was wearing out, or perhaps my shaky hands were the problem; until i read a post recently about someone else having the same issue... and found a fix! Within the documents folder for iRacing is a file called app.ini. Within this file (which you can open with a text editor) is a line that says "debounceSeq_Ms=80". This allows for shifting changes within 80 milliseconds. Don't know about you, but i haven't moved that fast in years... well not intentionally anyway. HINT: If you're unfamiliar with text editors, generally there is a function within the 'Edit' pulldown that allows you to 'Find' the wording you want to alter. Either type or copy and paste what you want to find in the window, and hit 'Find Next'. Magic! The original post suggested altering the 80 to be 250 (or 1/4 second). This way, any accidental shifts that occur before a quarter second has elapsed won't be registered. Voila! Up shift and downshift errors remedied. Just from my own personal experience, before you alter the .ini file, first save it as app BAK.txt. That way you'll always have a clean backup copy to refer to if you need it. After that, If your text editor doesn't show .ini as an option to 'save as', you should be able to alter your 'Save as type:' drop-down window from 'Text Documents (*.txt)' to 'All Files'. That should allow you to now see the original app.ini file along with the app BAK.txt that you just created. Click on 'app' and then Save. I've altered the app.ini file a few times in the past for other reasons and like to keep it handy, so i keep a 'working' app.txt file on my desktop. That way i always have the original 'clean' app BAK.txt in case something screws up, a current working .txt file that i can refer to, and the app.ini file that iRacing uses and i can easily overwrite when i want to make a change. See you on the track!
