    Interesting to see that the real car has so limited FOV that a single monitor setup should be able to accurately simulate it.

    This is really exciting Jimmy! What does your heart rate get up to when driving? Have you had to, or will you have to, work on an exercise program to manage the racing stresses?

    Hi, been watching and following for a while. I'm a sim racer and I race for real, it's a difficult transition but nothing beats the real thing although sim racing is a very close second. The worst part is the fact its someone else's car.... but to get good you have to get over it and get the hammer down. I have a clio cup car most fun ever 🤜😎

    5:12 Where is my apex?? aaa the second one.... ;) In my experience as rally driver, i´m missing some "grip tests" that i don´t see: I think you need to "check" the grip in the first lap. For example, testing the front grip forcing some masive understeer in the middle of a curve. Another good test is testing the brakes. Braking as hard a you can without block, with clunch and without. In straight line and in the middle of a slow corner. For me, when i start to test a car, i´m doing this kind of easy test in order to "feel" the car in the very first meters. The hard part of this is testing the "Rear grip in acceleration". This need more experience in order to avoid mistakes... .
