As driving game or simulated motorsport fans we often feel the need to classify different games or sims into different categories.  The usually fall into one of three groups - Arcade , Simcade, and Simulation.  However as fans and defenders of our favorites these categories can also be offensive.

On today's Sim Tunnel we will break down and define these 3 categories and talk about what really makes one sim fall into one of these groups.  We will also talk about the great things that each group has to offer to certain drivers.  And then we will finish off with putting our favorite sims into these categories.

Be part of the Pit Crew and give us your opinion on these aspects of sim racing.

TP needs some updating. It is not very intuitive for new users. Instructions are hard to follow at times. Support response is in need of someone's dedication. Having individual paints is a real attraction within iRacing. This needs to be done better or replaced! â€‹Interesting that without member support there would be no answers or help. It's a shame, the program is so popular not to have good management.

I am all signed up and ready to race in the Carrera Cup, except for one thing.  How do I obtain Road America?  I do not have it in AC as one of my tracks.  Where is it?
