Agreed with Ray, actually I was going to suggest the same.
Time to dust off that RC car Shaun and get back to the roots, explaining how various settings in various sims can effect the handling and performance of a sim car.
In example, by tightening the front anti sway bar, you can expect the car to behave what way? LOL, few of us are automotive engineers. lol :D
Also, if it would be possible, I know this would be a time consuming project, is to make a chart comparing the popular sims names of the settings that can be changed, meaning in example..... in iRacing it's called a Front Anti Roll Bar (FARB), what's the same thing called in other sims, it all does the same thing but has many different names in various sims.
This would be handy as people learn how to setup a car.
Take care

....Hi Matty, lol, to be honest, I wouldn't know where to start or what I'm doing. Absolutely no expertise with this subject.
Take care

I would like to see some older titles that will still run with todays hardware revisited with some tips on what can be done to get the most of these older pieces of software. needed patches modding capabilities any still in existance sim race leagues for these titles and so on GPL would possibly  be a good one to start with then maybe ISI-EA F1 series, RBR, NR2k3, as well as other classics GTR 1 and 2 GTL and so on. I have seen quite a few people try GTR 2 for the first time and are almost blown away by how good an old game can be.

As I have a G27 wheel and lookes like I will be hanging on to it for some time to come so I would like to see a recap of all currently available mods for this wheel all in one place and maybe the ultiment modded G27 wheel with no wholes barred and then a budget version including the cheapest/free mods to improve the wheel shifter and peddles.

You should jump on the Oculus Rift.  Do some tutorials and such.  You do a great job of explaining tech and I think if you can get this going now before the consumer version comes out you will be ahead of the pack.

I am new to Sim racing and I really want to join I racing, but it is intimidating. I really liked your first episode of your racing experience. I hope that you keep making iracing series videos. I am impressed with your new show. Keep up the good work.

Hey Shaun, I appreciate your passion and enthusiasm for the simracing world! Just wanted to throw in something, I know you have a driving school coming, but I'm wondering how advanced it's going to be? I just watched your entire interview with Atze, and I was wondering if perhaps you could partner up with him or any alien-like super advanced guys, to give some advanced racing techniques? I'm a Class A driver in the 3500-4000 irating, and I'd really like to push myself to new level, it seems like I hit some plateau. For exemple this week I decided to push my limit further, and decided to practice a ton at Montreal with the GT3. I got over 200laps done so far, and it seem like there's nothing else I can get out of McLaren. I have stopped improving in my last 50laps or so, it seems like I can't improve anymore,With all my practice I managed to shave off one whole second (I now run 1:33.200 PB). . There are alien going around the track at 1:31s !!.I'm sure everyone (of every skill level) would be thrilled having an Alien-like give us some tips! Thanks, keep it up

There's not much I can do to improve my driving, so I work on improving my setups.  I'm just one second back of the fastest guys at Oulton Park in a Lotus 79.  All I can do is concentrate on feeling what the car can do from the changes I've made.  I've only made faster laps when I've improved the setup.  For me, it's having that sensitivity to feel what works and what doesn't.

Hi Shaun! 
Great to see this kicking off - only realised you had started this almost a year ago so good luck going forward.  Enjoyed the video on the DIY job with the G27 pedals.  I'd like to see more stuff like that on the practical side of how you can make sim racing easier and more convenient in the home.  Little tweaks to existing hardware, pedal mounts, DIY sim rigs etc.  If you have any ideas on making an adjustable wooden rig then please share.  Also, FFB tweaks/advice on particular games which are particularly difficult to optimise (not mentioning any names - PROJECT CARS).  Nuggets of advice that make things easier and more fun basically - as well as game/hardware reviews obviously.
All the best, 
Mark (Long time fan).
