This is my recap from week 4 in the iRacing NASCAR trucks fixed series.  In this episode I work with iRacing pro Andrew Fayash on the secrets of speed that lay within Daytona.  We work on the outright speed that is required to get a good qualifying run in.  From there we move on to some of the tricks or skills required in pack racing that you would find at Daytona.  After a long practice session, and a good qualify run. it is time to get down to business and do some racing.



We recap the 5 races of the week and then break down the points to see how we did for the week, towards our season long goal.

I would like to thank Andrew Fayash III for all of his help in preparing for this weeks track.  You can check out his you tube channel where he has cool videos from both iRacing and real life dirt track racing that he does:

Hi Shaun,

the thing with the SR-boost is actually pretty easy. When you cross an X.00 threshhold the system doesn't multiply your gain/loss with some arbitrary factor but simply adds an +/- 0.4 SR.

So if you have a SR of 4.03 and you loose 0.04 SR points the system will take 0.44 points and you're at 3.59 instead of 3.99. I think this was implemented so people going from one license to another have a bit of a buffer and go clearly to the next level i.e. after fasttracking.

While I can't imagine wanting an Hyundai interior, it is very well done and looks incredible. Well done.

I like War Thunder, it has some real decent triple screen graphics and sound for flying the airplanes. I prefer the bombers at Arcade Battle rating, but some of the radial engined fighters are a lot of fun too. Other than that, I am an avaid truck driver driving a lot in American Truck Simulator and European Truck Simulator 2. They even have some really good multiplayer for both games, the ETS2 has a Winter mod built in, it looks like Winter with snow on everything and falling. Both games even have a short range "cb radio" that works in line of sight, you just set the microphone in the game and then it goes to a hot mike and people can hear you, but if you get out of sight, you can't hear each other. Now I wish other games would get the technology and incorporate it.
