    Consider this my formal request to join thy fellow racers/gamers. I've read what needs to be read and agree to the terms and I'm a whole 1459 days past turning 21 ;) impressive no?

    I've already met/played a bunch of Wreckfest with some of you but I enjoy most racing games including rFactor and Assetto amongst others. I also happily play any and all shooters but find good people to race against generally difficult so am glad to have stumbled across this place for that reason in particular.

    Don't have much else to say really, I'm a rabid car fan in real life too and wouldn't mind doing some real world racing once I'm less broke.

    Cheers and thanks.

    Impressive yes, that's a fair amount of days over 21 alas I probably have more though (I couldn't be fucked doing the maths tbh) and that hurts :eek:. I've made you a member so have a look around and settle in, we're not crazy, the doctor we paid told us so :).

    Cheers mate, yeah I was actually lucky enough to have a very brief stint in karting when I was 15 or so. Went out and bought a used kart and found the nearest track. Let me tell you, it was pretty daunting rocking up and being surrounded by 6-8 year old kids with these immaculate trailers, spare karts and engines as far as the eye could see. It was like the V8 Supercars for toddlers (compared to my beat up used kart sitting on planks above a 4x6 trailer).

    Long story short we bought a lemon of a kart and the motor let go after maybe 30 minutes of use, after getting it going again it became a logistical nightmare getting track time when I still needed someone to drive me there and back, was a blast though for the time I did spend and would recommend it to anyone.

    Also I was in your Assetto server briefly today, left around the time it went to Silverstone which is just as well since I just can't do that track haha.

    Well I'm hoping to have the v8 for toddlers thing going , lol you should see my 7mth old loves sitting on my lap grabbing the steering wheel.
    So being the prick I am I thru the FFB test on ( fanatic CSW V2 ) , I have never seen him laugh and smile so much ( while jumping side to side hanging on for his life ), we are on to a winner here I think lol

    But srsly my local track is mostly older people , no other race style options here we have an indoor track for young ones

    Being there today would explain the unfamiliar voice I heard while trying to hold the Xbow on the road sideways lol

    Hahaha that's the way to do it, start them young. And let me tell you these kids would've whooped me around the track too (if they were allowed to) but thankfully they were in a different age bracket and class.

    Welcome aboard PD. Hopefully I'll be able to give you a decent race once I get used to the new physics in Wreckfest, it takes some time but I usually get there eventually.

    Hahahaha noted for future reference.

    And I'm sure you will Wyspr, I was extremely close to writing this most recent update off after not really gelling with the handling. Lucky I forced myself to have one more proper go and went online, 20 player mower races saved me.
